Exploring the secrets of the Universe as far as physics can go, and even beyond.. Along with its Vedantic integration. This book has two sections. The first is a work in physics which presents exploration of Avyakta – the hidden metaphysical reality behind the apparent universe – through scientific study. (A condensed version of this part was published in the Prespacetime Journal Vol 7 Issue 16 on 08/01/2017, titled “Avyakta – The Fabric of Space”.) The concept is explored to complement the Standard Model and explain gravitation, along with the role of avyakta behind various phenomena like matter waves, energy in the vacuum state, spiral arms of galaxies, dark matter, Higgs boson and virtual particles which pop out of nowhere, big bang and cosmic inflation, and the anti-particle.

Topics covered are:
What is Life? – Life vs. Matter,
Proof of God’s existence,
Evolution of consciousness,
In this book the author has described the Vedic theory of Life which incorporates consciousness as the primary characteristic of life. The author has given a scientific analysis of what life is and described the characteristics of both Life and Matter and their points of similarity and distinction. The author has discussed evolution and then described an alternate theory namely the Vedic theory of evolution of consciousness as opposed to Darwin’s theory of evolution of species. The theory of evolution of consciousness is based on creation of various species by God so as to accommodate the varied desires of an infinite number of living beings.
The Vedic theory of evolution of consciousness marks the dawning of a new era in which consciousness will come to be incorporated as an essential item in our scientific theories about life and its origin.
What is Life? What are the characteristics of life? Is life an evolved form of matter or is it distinct from matter? Is life simply a product of or combination of material elements? Is it possible for material elements that have no life at all to combine to give rise to life? Life is characterised by consciousness. Matter is devoid of consciousness. How can matter which is devoid of consciousness give rise to life which is conscious? The effect must exist in the cause as well. These are some pertinent questions to ask when we analyse what life is. These questions are the basis of a scientific analysis of life and the debate: creation vs. evolution.
The author has also discussed the moral and spiritual ramifications of these theories. These fundamental theories of life have far reaching moral consequences on the course of development and well being of mankind. The significance of these theories cannot be over estimated as these are fundamental theories of life. The course of mankind depends on its thinking as regards life and thinking of mankind is greatly influenced by what is taught in schools about life and its origin. Hence this discussion: creation vs. evolution is very important. By teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution mankind is on the perilous course of a godless society where the moral fabric of society is being eroded. And without morality what kind of present or future can we expect? Morality is essential for the development of mind and spiritual consciousness. Morality is essential for the well being of the individual and society.

Yukteshwar was an educator, astronomer, a Jyotisha (Vedic astrologer), a yogi, and a believer in the Bhagavad Gita and the Bible.

Yukteswar wrote “The Holy Science” in 1894. In the introduction, he wrote: “The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity in all religions; that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various faiths; that there is but one method by which the world, both external and internal, has evolved; and that there is but one Goal admitted by all scriptures.” The work introduced many ideas that were revolutionary for the time – for

In this book there are several interesting issues related India .Each of which can create a different book. Still as a doctor, with the light of an Indian perspective & a yogic vision I have tried to resolve many controversial issues.I have tried to enlighten many aspects with some new ideas,theories,visions and to put everything in a basket of an eternal India,which is lovable to all Nations. I believe this will be acceptable globally.
Lost Discoveries, Dick Teresi’s innovative history of science, explores the unheralded scientific breakthroughs from peoples of the ancient world — Babylonians, Egyptians, Indians, Africans, New World and Oceanic tribes, among others — and the non-European medieval world. They left an enormous heritage in the fields of mathematics, astronomy, cosmology, physics, geology, chemistry, and technology.

Today’s young have more knowledge of nature than all the past sages of the Hindu culture. For the young to accept the culture, the culture must fit their knowledge, and it does. That’s because the Hindu culture is derived from nature much the same way as science discovers nature through observation, explanation, test. This is precisely the process that the sages of the Hindu culture followed.
