Event Info

In this talk, we would discuss:

  1. What science is, its process and limitations (what material science can’t answer)?
  2. Need of spirituality (What is spirituality), its process
  3. Can spirituality answers all our questions?
  4. What is common between Science and Spirituality?
  5. Do we need science and spirituality together?


Material and Spiritual science are the two aspects of the single reality. Materials Scientists, through understanding how materials work, can create new materials for new applications as well as develop existing materials to improve performance. They can modify the structure of a material even at the atomic level, but they can’t reveal to us from where the basic materials came into existence. Scientists can’t provide any information because they have restricted their knowledge to this material world, though all answers to our questions can be found in the Vedic scriptures. Real and complete knowledge is one which includes both material and spiritual science.

“If science and spirituality go hand in hand I am sure that one can create heaven on this earth” - M.K.Gandhi
