$\pi $ , there are formulas for $1/\pi $ of the form Following Ramanujan's work on modular equations and approximations of $\pi $ , there are formulas for $1/\pi $ of the form $\sum _{k=0}^{\infty}\frac{{\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}_{k}{\left(\frac{1}{d}\right)}_{k}{\left(\frac{d1}{d}\right)}_{k}}{k{!}^{3}}(ak+1){\left({\lambda}_{d}\right)}^{k}=\frac{\delta}{\pi}$ for $d=2,3,4,6,$ where ${\u0142}_{d}$ are singular values that correspond to elliptic curves with complex multiplication, and $a,\delta $ are explicit algebraic numbers. In this paper we prove a $p$ adic version of this formula in terms of the socalled Ramanujan type congruence. In addition, we obtain a new supercongruence result for elliptic curves with complex multiplication.
