A Walk in The Spiritual Garden (Reflections of a Scientist on The Religious Way of Life)
A Walk in The Spiritual Garden (Reflections of a Scientist on The Religious Way of Life)
Description
About The Author

Dr V V Rampal graduated from university of Delhi and I.I.Sc, Bangalore. He did his post graduation from I.I.T, Bombay and Ph D from university of Southampton, UK. As a senior scientist in the Defense R and D Organisation for over thirty years, he contributed in his field of specialization more than hundred technical publications and four books. He has also been on the teaching faculty of Roorkee University and I.I.T Kanpur. He was Advisor to Govt of India in the ministry of Science and Technology. For over a decade JW, he has studied Vedic spiritualism and is actively involved in science and sp..iuua1ity with frequent contributions to reputed spiritual journals. His present interests lie in Vedanta and scientific realism and has authored ‘Belief, Reality and Religious Practice’ published in 2007.

Preface

In science, we have theory and experimentation. In spirituality, we have scriptural knowledge and meditative experience. Knowledge we get from the written or the spoken word. All books are about knowledge. Experience comes from knowing as well as practicing what we learn. Mere knowing does not make a person enlightened. Doing and experiencing are also important, more so in spiritual life.

This book is a bouquet of thoughts on spirituality. This includes reflections, random thoughts, poetics expressions and some stories. They have originated form a wandering mind and are random in nature. They constitute reflections on subjects connected with spiritual aspect of life. They represent the understanding of the author and do not claim any authenticity of a master. They only provoke a thinking mind. As always, the truth is revealed only in experiencing the Reality and no merely knowing through the written word.

I shall feel satisfied in my purpose if even a page of the book makes the reader think and reflect on the need to be spiritual in his/her outlook towards life.
