Hanuman Chalisa explains sun-earth distance

“Yug Sahasra Yojana Par Bhanu, Leelyo Taahi Madhura Phal Jaanu” is the sloka that clearly explains the difference between Sun and Earth. That sloka of Hanuman Chalisa says, “Lord Hanuman has travelled thousand of kilometers towards Sun to swallow, thinking that to be a fruit.” “One ‘Yug’ is equal to 12,000 years, ‘Sahasra’ is 1,000, Yuga Sahasra is 12000 multiplied by 1000 and one Yojana is 8 miles. As per the aforementioned sloka, “Lord Hanuman travelled Yug Sahasra Yojana= 12,000*1000*8 = 96000000 miles, i.e, 154497024 kms to reach Sun,” which measures the distance between Sun and Earth.
