Vedic knowledge more powerful than modern physics
Quest for truth objective of both spiritualism and science
Scientists aver at concluding session of 3-day ideological seminar on ‘Science and spiritualism’
Bhopal, February 15, 2016 (Ataullah Faizan): There is no apparatus to measure quantum of spiritualism. It can only be experienced and not measured. This was stated by Vice Chancellor of Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda University, Kolkata Swami Atmapriyananda while addressing the concluding session on ‘Science and Spiritualism’. The concluding session ‘Vedanta and Modern Physics’ of the 3-day ideological seminar was presided over by former ISRO Chairman Dr. Madhavan Nair. Swami Atmapriyananda said that meaning of spiritualism is ascent of the human being to highest planes of spiritualism. He said that scientist Einstein’s theory of relativity has changed thinking of entire world. Global thinking is needed to understand relation between science and spiritualism. He said that in Vedas, mind has been described as matter. Our mind is totally dependent on diet. Spiritualism can be experienced by mixing Indian and Western like we mix rice and pulse to cook Khichadi. Dwelling on various aspects of Vedanta, Swami Atmapriyananda made interesting interpretations of research in modern physics. He said that a spider knits its web with the help of a liquid in its body, which is an unparalleled natural art.
But no one knows as to how spider does it. In modern physics, nature has been described as beautiful in which one can witness ‘Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram’. Swamiji said that definitions of physics’ interpretations do not come from outside, but emerge through inner studies. He said that Swami Vivekananda had said that science and spiritualism are complementary to each other. Dr. Alex Henki from Swami Vivekananda Yoga and Research Centre, Bengaluru said that Vedic knowledge is more powerful than modern physic.
Spiritualism has been described differently in East and West. ‘Biological organism’ is more complex than both. Discussing concept of complexity biology, he informed that teleportation is 7th sense of communication. He said that ‘New Model of Mind Body Collection’ gives opportunity to understand spiritualism closely. Dr. Madhavan Nair said that there is a unique relation between spiritualism and science. Quest for truth is the objective of both. Modern science has led to modern rationale thinking and technology has opened new possibilities.
