Description

Foreword

Shri R. K. Mishra is am Electrical Engineer by profession but he has chosen to write on The Divine Science . His book covers many things. Apart from brief comments on relativity and Einstein, he mostly about the Upanishads, the Bhagwadgita and the interpretations by Shri Aurobindo and various others seers. I have some limited exposure to the Gita but I am not very familiar with Upanishadic literature. It appears that Shri Mishra wants to discuss Science and religion. To begin with, one must distinguish between the theoretical core of a religion and its practice by those who subscribe to it. This core is not the same for all religions and, in fact, is not easy to define. For example, Islam is monotheistic while Hinduism is more layered and multifaceted. Modern physics and biology has advanced to an extent when the idea of an external God is rather difficult to accommodate. We have it on the authority of Mr. Einstein that he believed (at least, at that in 1920's) in the philosophy of Spinoza. As I understand him, and philosophy is close to the famous description in the Gita.

'He who sees My everywhere and sees everything in Me'.
(My free translation).

This kind of doctrine which identifies God with the Universe taken together is close in spirit to the thinking of scientists. Scientists seldom refer to God in their formal presentations; they call it Nature. Modern cosmology deals with the Universe as it is on a gross scale but it is not yet linked to microcosm. A Theory of Everything is not yet in place. But we can speculate. If the universe is reasonably homogeneous not just on the large scale, but also, in some sense, on the short scale (and this is pure speculation) and consists of some basic entities, then the monistic doctrines of the Bhagwad Gita and Spinoza may have a physical model to identify itself with. I should add, however, that religion is less a matter of logic that a matter of faith and the world is full of people for whom faith is above logic.

The learned readers of this foreword will I hope, forgive me for my views which are more or less divorced from the main text. The author, Shri Mishra of the main text deserves to be encouraged for writing a book which can be profitably read by many people. I hope it will stimulate dear readers to think about these things.

About the Author

The author of book "The Divine Science" Sri R.K. Mishra is an Electrical Engineer by profession and a retired Chief Engineer of Bihar State Electricity Board. He retired in April 2003. It appears after retirement, he got free time and the treasure of knowledge which was hidden in his soul and mind, all flown out, gushing from a simple stream to the vast panorama of this Universe. The author's contention is that this Universe being the play of the forces, is the culmination of two types of, forces, the one 'Divine' and the other 'Material'. Whereas the 'Divine Forces' are not in the catch of human science, the Material Forces are. The examples of Divine forces are Concious-Force, Mind-Force, Life-Force, Pranic Force. The Divine Forces are so subtler in nature that perhaps it shall always remain a subject matter of scientific stories. However when these divine forces, descend to the cruder stag the human science catches it.

Both the Forces, Divine as well as Material in time and space are coming into the realm of Nature, and the One which is the Absolute – The Almighty is above Nature and as such, timeless and spaceless. To describe about the descendance of the Almighty from a timeless and spaceless status to in time and space, he has taken the help of Upanishadic Explanations where in is the description how the Almighty is involving Himself into the Evolution through which the spirit is involuting into Matter. It is a vast and extreme process too great to be expressed in words.

The authors contention is that this supreme kind of knowledge, which is almost hidden and out of the sight of the common people must come to the fore for the benifit to the masses. "The Divine Science" is an effort in that direction.

Possessed of the inherent idea of the reason behind existence, wrote the book, 'The Divine Science'.

In order to understand human life, as a spark of the Absolute/Almighty, thrown out and reabsorbed, I had to go through the experiences and knowledge discovered as a consummation of thoughts and discoveries of truths searched out for more than two thousand and five hundred years by the sages and the great-men of ancient and modern India, in an effort to bring down the truths and the real facts involved in this process of Evolution.
