NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF SCIENCE
AND RELIGION / SPIRITUALITY FOR THE
WELL-BEING OF THE MANKIND
The prophetic words of wisdom spoken by Great Noble Son of India Swami Vivekananda, at the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago on 11th September 1893 that “Union of Science and Religion/Spirituality alone, will bring Harmony and Peace to Mankind” are, in my opinion, the True Life-guiding Spirit for the present day world. On this background, we need to understand the exact Role of Science and Religion/Spirituality in developing the positive mindset and promoting the Culture of Peace in the world.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SCIENTIFIC AND SPIRITUAL
COMPONENT OF LIFE LIKE YOGA AND MEDITATION
IN DEVELOPING THE POSITIVE MINDSET
Friends, after deeply studying the ancient Vedic texts like Vedas,
Upannishads, Bhagwad Gita and other religious scriptures like Holy Quran, Holy Bible, Holy Dhammapad, Holy Tripitak, Holy Guru Granthsahib etc. and their religious practices like Yoga, Meditation, Namaz, Vipassana---- etc. I realized that the methodology and practises may be different but the ultimate aim of each religion is to seek the ultimate truth / ultimate reality – the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient and formless god!
ONENESS OF SCIENTIFIC AND SPIRITUAL /RELIGIOUS ASPECTS OF LIFE
Friends, it is worth noting that the very definition of Science is nothing but to find Unity and to understand the Ultimate State of Matter and the very Nature of Reality -Consciousness of the Universe, whereas the very definition of Religion is nothing but to perform one’s duty, which is the True Wisdom and the Divine Knowledge to develop the sense of ethics and morality which ultimately teach how to live happily and let others also live happily without causing any harm or injustice to other living beings.
AUM & YOGA – A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION BY
INDIA TO THE ENTIRE WORLD
Friends, the very word “ - Aum”, which is apparently misunderstood as a religious / spiritual word symbolizing Hinduism, is actually a universal word and a symbol to denote the INVISIBLE FORCE OR ENERGY, which binds this entire Universe together and signifies the ULTIMATE TRUTH – ULTIMATE
REALITY – THE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE CONCEPT WHICH IS ACCEPTED
BY ALL THE WORLD RELIGIONS
NEED FOR IMPLEMENTING VALUE BASED UNIVERSAL
EDUCATION SYSTEM WITH APPROPRIATE SCIENTIFIC
AND SPIRITUAL COMPONENTS
“Education is a manifestation of pure intelligence” & “Education is the
manifestation of the perfection already in man”, and is obviously closely related with the proper understanding of the Role of Science and Spirituality/ Religion for the well-being of the Mankind.
EXPERIENCING REALITY – THE CONSCIOUSNESS
UNIVERSAL LAWS OF DNYANESHWAR MAULI
My learned friends, it would be quite appropriate to understand what is the very system or very mechanism of a human life or a living being, which is quite universal even for the smallest of the small living beings too, with similar body mechanism, brain, intellect, mind, soul having similar digestive, respiratory or blood/life force circulation system.
