Welcome to the web site Vedanta and Science.
On the surface Science and Vedanta may look very different. One is science, experiment driven and the other in some ways is philosophy, some may even call it religion.
Science is trying to understand and discover the universe ‘out there’ and Vedanta is trying to teach you the universe ‘inside you’. Everyone will agree that there is only one universe, both ‘out there’ and ‘in here’ are part of the same universe. If this is true, both must have the same underlying reality. If you are part of the universe then your underlying reality must be the same as the underlying reality of the universe ‘out there’. There cannot be two independent realities for the same universe.
It would seem that both science and Vedanta are looking for the same underlying reality. If you study Vedanta you will realize that the Rishi’s in ancient India have already discovered this fact and have been teaching this through many different Upanishads and Scriptures. These Rishi’s shut their eyes and looked inwards and they found their underlying reality. They also realized that this underlying reaity within you is the same underlying reality of the universe ‘out there’. The famous teaching ‘Tat Tvam Asi’ ‘ You Are That’ sums up this teaching.
Science, especially quantum physics is moving in that direction. It has taken a lot of strides and have improved their understanding of the sub-atomic particles. In spite all this effort, they still are nowhere near to discover the underlying reality of the universe ‘out there’. Science will never discover this truth ‘out there’ unless and until it first understands the truth ‘in here’.
The main focus of this website to show the interaction between Science and Vedanta and show how the teaching from Vedanta can help Science reach that ultimate goal to discover the underlying reality of the universe ‘out there’. There will also be articles on Vedanta only, to improve understanding on some key teachings.
