WHO AM I? THE SCIENCE OF MAN


WHO AM I? THE SCIENCE OF MAN It gives me pleasure to dedicate this blog post to the memory of Aristotle, the Father of Highest Science, First Philosophy, and Theology. ARISTOTLE- born 384 BC and died 322 BC. His Metaphysics brings about the convergence of Philosophy, Religion, and Science. Aristotle surveyed the whole field of human knowledge as it was known in his day. He was at the Athenian Academy of Plato for 20 years. In 335 BC, he opened the Lyceum in Athens, a Center for speculation and research in every department of human inquiry. He became an authority … Continue reading WHO AM I? THE SCIENCE OF MAN

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2018 – REMEMBERING THE CONSONANCE AND THE DISSONANCE IN HUMAN NATURE


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2018 – REMEMBERING THE CONSONANCE AND THE DISSONANCE IN HUMAN NATURE On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, the 17th Anniversary of 911 attacks on the United States, I reflect upon the consonance and dissonance in human nature.

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – ROLE OF EDUCATION IN PROMOTING HUMAN WELL-BEING


SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – ROLE OF EDUCATION IN PROMOTING HUMAN WELL-BEING I share the concern expressed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama about shortcomings of educational mission. In my analysis, apart from education, most religions, and philosophical doctrines fail to identify all the dimensions of man in relation to man’s existence on the surface of fast spinning celestial object called World. Indian traditions of Yoga may describe seven levels or ‘Chakras’ of human consciousness. In my view, man’s singularity as Human Being is like Color Spectrum of Light. The seven colors of man are, 1. Physical, Mortal Being, 2. Mental Being, … Continue reading SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – ROLE OF EDUCATION IN PROMOTING HUMAN WELL-BEING

WHAT IS MAN? – THEORY OF HUMAN NATURE


WHAT IS MAN? – THEORY OF HUMAN NATURE What is Man? The motivation for asking this question comes from a statement expressed in Sanskrit Language. “Sarvesham Swastir Bhavatu,” Shanti Mantra seeks the well-being of all humans, of all races, of all cultures, of all religions, and of all nations. My Theory of Human Nature draws inspiration from Man’s pursuit of Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility in Human Living Experience. Our efforts to support the well-being of Man would be affected by our understanding the ‘real’, or ‘true’ Nature of Man. All human traditions including several philosophical and scientific traditions make assumptions about Human Nature. The … Continue reading WHAT IS MAN? – THEORY OF HUMAN NATURE
