Abstract Following Ramanujan's work on modular equations and approximations of , there are formulas for of the form Following Ramanujan's work on modular equations and approximations of , there are formulas for of the form for where are singular values that correspond to elliptic curves with complex multiplication, and are explicit algebraic numbers. In this paper we prove a adic version of this formula in terms of the so-called Ramanujan type congruence. In addition, we obtain a new supercongruence result for elliptic curves with complex multiplication.
