Hinduism and Science

The hitherto unexplained concepts or aspects of reality cannot be brushed aside or explained away with confusing scientific jargon nor can we ignore the great strides that science has made and gifted us with so many important things very essential for understanding life but we must be open to and willing to make the paradigm shift in our perspective and perception whether we categorize them or label them under material science or spiritual science. I do not want to use the term religion at all as it has so many aspects in it which very often prevents proper and open minded perception of either science, namely material science and spiritual science.
The more we are willing to listen and learn without blocking anything with our prejudices or conditionings or assumptions the more we get a chance to get enlightened. Here is one such lecture put forth in very simple terms and asking us to take cognizance of the vital aspects of reality which we may miss out if we presume that material science alone can explain life.

Listen and enjoy to this lecture
