☀️What the essence of reality is, has puzzled the greatest of all thinkers across all philosophical and scientific investigations. Possible existence or non-existence of the reality beyond transient forms have led to significant intellectual progress.
☀️In this fascinating discussions we will ponder over nature of form and the role of our ordinary senses as we move from western philosophy to achintya-bhedabheda (simultaneous oneness and difference) philosophy. We will reflect in light of modern scientific advancements.

Science and Religion: Conflict, Co-operation and Co-Existence

Starts: March 7, 2021, 5:30 pm
Ends: March 14, 2021, 7:00 pm

Prof. Gopal K. Gupta

Is the universe – and our place in it – the result of random chance, or is there an ultimate meaning to existence? Where did the constants of nature come from? Were they created by a higher force, or can they be explained in some other way? How could a mechanism as complex as a universe evolve without a creator? There are many ways to explain the origin and development of our complex universe, but among these competing worldviews, using the law of parsimony, we should accept the simplest explanation. Naturalism and theism both have their own explanatory virtues, but this presentation argues that of the two, theism is a simpler, more probable, explanation.

The Art and Science of Meditation

Starts: February 28, 2021, 5:30 pm
Ends: February 28, 2021, 7:00 pm

Mr. Asit Nema

Topic: The Art and Science of Meditation
Time:  05:30 PM IST, Feb 28, 2021

Institute for Science and Spirituality is pleased to invite you to our next Session - `Art and Science of Meditation` by Mr. Asit Nema.

Mankind has experienced thrill from the magic of sound of varied nature- the sweet notes of Santoor and Sitar; the ripples of a river and the rumble of surf; the beats of Tabla and Drums; the chuckle of a baby and the singing of a Soprano; the chirping of Birds. 

Ancient Vedic wisdom tells us that the cosmic manifestation came about by the action of sound and it will again wind up through the power of sound. Can we really tap into that unfathomable potency of cosmic symphony? Indeed, sound therapy has been used for time immemorial to produce varied effects on the psyche of living beings. Sonic meditation with sacred syllables is the tool prescribed by thoughtful seers of truth for elevating one's consciousness to higher levels; and perhaps that is the tool which you may be looking for to harness desirable soothing effects on your psyche.

Join us for an exciting journey....
