科学与灵性的综合

提问:世界各地的思想家们在努力综合科学和灵性。印度的智慧传统能为此企图贡献什么呢?
回答:印度作为深厚而无与伦比的灵性智慧之地而闻名全球。这里有杰出的西方思想家的一些语录:
        1.“每当我读了韦达经的任何部分时,我都感到某种超自然并且未知的光芒照亮了我。在韦达经的伟大教义中不存在宗派主义。它关系到一切年代,山峰和民族并且是获得伟大知识的捷径。”——美国思想家亨利·戴维·梭罗。

        2.“《博伽梵歌》的奇迹是它对关于生命的智慧的真正优美的揭示。此智慧使哲学得以成长为宗教。”——诺贝尔奖得主作家赫尔曼·黑塞

不太知名的是韦达文化对科学领域的贡献。这里有著名的西方科学家承认韦达文化的科学荣誉的一些语录:

1. “我们欠印度人许多。他们教我们如何计数。没有此事的发生就没有什么值得做的科学发现能被做出。”——诺贝尔奖得主物理学家艾尔伯特·爱因斯坦

2. “是印度给了我们通过十个符号来表达一切数字的有独创性的方法。每个符号都被赋予了位置值和绝对值。这个意义深远并且重要的主意现在看似如此简单以至我们忽视了它的真实功绩。但它使一切计算都变得非常简单,极其容易,将我们的算术置于一流的有用的发明之列。当我们记起它避开了阿基米德和阿波罗尼亚斯这两位古老的伟人的天赋时,我们会更欣赏此成就的宏伟。”——法国数学家皮埃尔·拉普拉斯

3.韦达智慧传统不仅呈现了渊博而详尽的关于灵性领域的知识,而且描述了系统的,经受时间考验并且独特的方法和技术以体验那个非物质的领域。那个领域是西方科学无法理解的。因此,韦达传统提供了关于意识研究和转换的一门发达的科学,在任何智慧传统中都无前例的一门科学。许多主要的思想家表达了韦达智慧在一个裂口上架桥的潜力。这个裂口将科学与灵性分开了。其中一位就是世界上最年轻的获得诺贝尔奖的科学家:“韦丹塔和数论派持有关于心意和思想作用的定律的钥匙。这些定律与量子场,即在原子和分子水平的粒子的运作和分布有关。”——诺贝尔奖得主物理学家布莱恩·戴维·约瑟夫逊

的确,通过在一个更高维度的范式中结合理由和信仰,韦达智慧能治愈将人脑和人心撕开的伤口,从而在世界历史上开辟一个协调的,全面发展的新纪元。

Synthesis of Science and Spirituality


Question:
Thinkers all over the world are striving to synthesize science and spirituality. What can the Indian wisdom-tradition contribute to this attempted synthesis?

Answer:
India is renowned globally as the land of profound and peerless spiritual wisdom. Here are a few quotes of eminent Western thinkers:

1.    “Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I
have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me. In the great
teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of sectarianism. It is of all ages,
climbs, and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great
Knowledge” -American Thinker Henry David Thoreau

2.    “The marvel of the Bhagavad-gita is its
truly beautiful revelation of life’s wisdom which enables philosophy to blossom
into religion” - Nobel Lauerate Author Hermann Hesse

Lesser known are the contributions of Vedic India to
the field of science. Here are a few quotes from famous Western scientists
acknowledging the scientific glory of Vedic India:

1.    “We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us
how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been
made.” - Nobel Laureate Physicist Albert Einstein

2.    “It is India that gave us the ingenious method
of expressing all numbers by ten symbols, each receiving a value of position as
well as an absolute value, a profound and important idea which appears so
simple to us now that we ignore its true merit. But its very simplicity, the
great ease which it has lent to all computations, puts our arithmetic in the
first rank of useful inventions, and we shall appreciate the grandeur of this
achievement the more when we remember that it escaped the genius of Archimedes
and Apollonius, two of the greatest men produced by antiquity.” - French
Mathematician Pierre Laplace

Not only does the Vedic wisdom-tradition present
profound, detailed knowledge about the spiritual realm, but it also delineates
systematic, time-tested and unique techniques and technologies to experience
that non-material realm which is otherwise out of the reach of Western science.
Thus, the Vedic tradition offers a well-developed science of consciousness
study and transformation, a science that that has no parallels in any
wisdom-tradition. The potential of Vedic wisdom to bridge the yawning chasm
that separates science and spirituality today is expressed by many leading
thinkers, among whom is the world’s youngest Noble Laureate scientist: “The
Vedanta and the Sankhya hold the key to the laws of mind and thought process
which are co-related to the Quantum Field, i.e. the operation and distribution
of particles at atomic and molecular levels.” - Nobel Laureate Physicist Brian
David Josephson

Indeed, by uniting reason and faith in a
higher-dimensional paradigm, Vedic-wisdom can heal the wound that has torn the
human brain and the human heart far apart, and thus usher a new era of
integrated, holistic development in world history.
