About the Book

Swami Vivekananda was a multifaceted genius. While his spiritual eminence and profound understanding of India and her culture, history, and future are well-known, his insights in physical sciences are lesser known. Swamiji was well-acquainted with the scientific thoughts of his times and was remarkably accurate in his observations and conclusions with regard to many scientific notions. What is even more important is the ample hints he gave on ways to train the mind, arousing the unseen power of intuition, which is vital to all scientific pursuits.

This book attempts to explore this aspect of Swamiji's personality and how scientific research can benefit from development of intuitive faculty inherent in all-a fact which Swamiji emphasized very often.

Foreword

Swami Vivekananda once declared that great things can be done by great sacrifices only. Extending this statement of his, we can declare that great discoveries can come out of great intuitions only.

What is intuition? It is knowledge gained by the mind directly, without the intervention of the senses or the reasoning process. To put it in the language of Vedanta, it is aparoksha jnana or ateendriya jnana.

Again, this jnana or knowledge can come only as a result of-or, after-anubhava, experience.

Experience of what? Turning again to Vedanta, it is the direct experience of the Atman, the all-knowing pure consciousness, from which arise all types and kinds of knowledge.

Once a person gets this experience, his mind auto-matically becomes the super-mind endowed with omniscience. Equipped with such a mind, he can get the knowledge he wants in any field he turns towards. It is like a person having a powerful searchlight in his hand. By turning that light in any direction, he can see the object lying there.

It is exactly this power, which Vivekananda had in plenty, that enabled him to burrow out some fundamental truths even in the field of external sciences.

These truths falling from his lips, are like sutras (pnemonic statements or formulae) which affored plenty of scope for expansion and explanation.

Dr. Murthy, himself a distinguished scientist and an earnest student of Vivekananda, has amassed in this brochure enough relevant material pertaining to various fields of sciences with appropriate comments and quotations to prove the scientifc genius of Vivekananda.

Let us hope that this laudable and original effort of his will ignite the minds of kindred souls leading ultimately to a new branch of knowledge.

Tina, USA
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.
