<p><strong>yojana</strong> is ...

yojana is vedic measure of distance and approximately equals 8 miles. And 1 mile = 1.60934 kilometres

yuga-sahasra-yojana = 12000 × 1000 ×8 = 9,60,00,000 miles

According to the calculation presented in hanuman chalisa : distance between sun and earth = 12000 × 1000 × 8 = 96 million miles = 153.6 million kms which is much closer to the calculation of morden scientists.
