Preface

The present volume is the outcome of two National Seminars organised by me at the Centre of Advanced Study in Sanskrit, University of Pune from 7th to 9th May, 2001 and from 29th of October to 31st of October, 2001 in collaboration with the Vedic Research Centre of the India international Multiversity, Pune. The theme of the first seminar was "Nature and Function of Mind" and that of the second seminar was "Human Mind and Machine". Since the aim of both the seminars was the same, namely, to know the nature and function of human mind and to discover the distinction between the experiencer and the inner instrument through which the experiencer experiences, the papers presented and discussed at both the seminars have been included in this volume. The seminars also aimed at drawing a parallelism between human mind and computer which, though a product of human mind, is expected to perform the function of human mind.

These discussions will lead to, I believe, a serious dialogue to approach the Reality in a scientific manner. I am looking forward to a day when we can understand better the dichotomy between sentient and non-sentient, between the experiencer and instrument of his experience, between soul and mind and between mind and machine if at all there is any such distinction.

Till to-day we know very little about what the first and second personal pronouns refer to. The age-old upanisadic enquiry such as Ko 'ham 'who am I?' has not yet found any satisfactory answer. The quest dialogue, therefore, must continue.

I am thankful to Dr. Vijay Bhatkar, the Chancellor of the Multiversity, the renowned computer scientist and a great lover and admirer of Indian Cultural Heritage for his constant encouragement and support.

I hope, the papers in this volume will receive that age-old enquiry with new perspective. I am thankful to all the contributors to this volume.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
