Happy to see that message. How have you been? Well, I mocved to another blog site in between. I am slowly coming back to here. Had made couple of posts recently. Hope you too will be active here soon:))…PGR
I wish you write more!
i have got something to tell u in my new blog. pls do take a look. thanks.
hi sahiti bharatwaj….. how are you?…….. whats the knowledge that you gained when you got the answers??
Hi Sahiti…Hope you are fine…Happy Dasara to you and your family…PGR
Going by your interests, it seems you will love this book. Do grab a copy in case you haven’t already - “Meditation, Oneness and Physics” by Glen Peter Kezwer. This book is a brave attempt at clearing some cobwebs - how far is succeeds in anybody’s guess.
You also mention that Mantra is the Science of Sound (Acoustics). Another word for an established science. Does it mean that Mantra has been able to explain sound waves, ultrasound and infrasound? If yes, where are those theorems, equations? You mention that Tantra is usually associated with black magic. You also mention that it can be used for many positive activities too. Please clarify, what are those positive activities and how do they benefit people? From what I read here, I am able to figure out that these are mere synonyms and offer a concept. Given the fact that those synonyms (or concepts) existed is exciting. But nothing beyond that… or is it?
In the other para you mention that “Gayatri is the science of breath or life.” But life, as we know it at his point of time, exists only on this planet. So in that case, anything that is not living automatically comes outside the realm of Gayatri. In any case, my point is not that at all. My point is something else, from what I read here, I realize that Gayatri is just a synonym for a Physics concept. It is just another word. What exactly does it mean? Why doesn’t anyone explain that?
Sorry Sahiti, my comment to your Tantra post got arrayed. here is my (usual) rant:
You say “Similarly Gayatri is said to be the underlying current of life in the entire universe.” So in a way you mean that Gayatri is another name for the science which proposes or believes in what in Physics is called the grand Unified Theory of Everything. Where scientists are dabbling with quantum physics, string theories and stuff to describe a theory that would unify or explain (through a single model) the theories of all fundamental interactions of nature. The belief that there is one essential power (or energy or something) that has the ultimate control. Is this what Gaytri is?
Thanks for dropping by Sahiti. I havent been visiting the ilands for a long time now. Hope u are continuing to bring more light of vedic knowledge to fellow ilanders.
I’ll try to catch up with the iland in a while.
i got an link for a comment posted by you on my blog but when i try to view, your comment is not visible and only ‘array’ is written in your comment box. also no other comments are visible. i was just wondering what you were trying to say. u can post it on the gb if u can recall. thanks anyways.
jus wanted to let you know that u are also one of the few bloggers who have inspired me to start this new blog.
Hi Sahiti, thanks for your friendship and wish you all the best with this 500th GB message…
Another blockbuster from our dear Sahiti… loved your article on Karma…I learnt something …you have an engaging style…please write more or else I will land up at your door !!!
hi sahiti, it has always a pleasure to read your posts: i still enjoy reading them as they are refreshingly different, apart from being informed and balanced. your posts add to the worth of the iLand community. looking forward to more such posts from you, and with regards, dilip
Am back after a whirlwind tour of Kerala ..
You had stated in your GB message .. “It is just that you didnt leave anything for me to say… ;)” … I thought you would read my posts and comment … Voh kyaa hai naa, main ‘Pehle aap’ waale policy mein yakeen karti hoon ..
Am vacationing in Kerala … See you later ..
Sahiti ,you were supposed to visit my iland and give your observations…it’s again my invitation …and you also have to send me something…positive and inspiring posts..remember?
Sahiti, Your blog is nice. You have written on topics mostly of my interest. I will be back for more comments. Need to find some time and read your posts properly. Re. VR
Thank you Sahiti for your visit and comments. I come to your page often, although i don’t think I have ever haven’t commented.:-)
–> As for the last paragraph, I don’t understand its purpose. I never said I have a firm belief against vedas or gurus. Simply, for me a veda is as good a source as any other book before I read it, and a guru is as good as any other man before I hear him. I am not going to assume they are true before starting to read or hear them. However, I don’t think that is the case with many of us.
–> In your spinning example, any uneducated layman can figure out if he spares the time to observe that no sphere can stay still unsupported even around him, and no sphere thrown up can avoid spinning at least a little (you can try it). He might lack the words like gravity, momentum, angular momentum, and equations. But the concept itself can be figured out easily. In short, if a man has the interest and ability to frame a question, I think, he can figure out the answer as long as he does not bow to some form of self-deception (bowing to authority, laziness being the most common).
Anyway, to judge whether something is oversimplified or not, one must have an understanding of the problem statement and the proposed solution. As I said earlier, I am willing to address any gaps in logic you choose to bring up. –>
