Economics and holistic approach to problem solving – the Indian Genius

with 8 comments

 This small lecture is just a tip of an iceberg into sneek preview of economic prosperity possible if man applies his mind and where we are headed. Most modern universities of 2013 not excluding the MIT, Harvard are veritable kinder-gartens. 

What is not covered in this lecture is – already in title – it was not just the Indian Vedic Rishis but exemplary men from all civilizations Greece, Egypt, Persia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omar_Khayyam) etc. that produced masterpieces of men, so profound in their intellect, thorough in outlook, well rounded in personality and focused on their goals that everything was work of art springing out from inside their essence, and not a probe from outside in. The ascent and descent of civilizations, given that we had space faring civilizations using nuclear fusion, using gravity has to do with what in Vedic system is called Yugas, or many other civilizations like  Mayan, Greek as Golden, Silver, Bronze, Iron age. Intellect of the man itself rises and ebbs during these ages and the ability to creatively produce. Read more on the ages by Yukteswar Giri.

Enjoy a couple of the trillion enigmas of cosmos

  1. Multi-disciplinary thinking, principle of reduction and deduction, 'always invert' – all these mungerisms were part of our history – which obvioulsy we have lost only to slowly re-discover it from somewhere else. Brilliant video. Lot more to it than what I just said. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Pleasure was all mine to share. There is just so much more at so many levels to know and share and the model we grew up with in British converted Indian schools of reading and cramming every book is to say the least not at all fulfilling. It only serves part of the intellect and not the complete person.

    There are levels subtler and subtler than known levels to us today and as Max Planck, father of Einstein and founder of Quantum Physics has also been able to grasp, an echo from hoary pages of Vedas:

    “All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
    ― Max Planck

    “There can never be any real opposition between religion and science; for the one is the complement of the other. Every serious and reflective person realizes, I think, that the religious element in his nature must be recognized and cultivated if all the powers of the human soul are to act together in perfect balance and harmony. And indeed it was not by accident that the greatest thinkers of all ages were deeply religious souls”
    ― Max Planck

    “Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”
    ― Max Planck

  3. The western civilization has major emphasis on intellectual advancement. In fact many women are more masculine than men in India. Showing emotions is considered vulnerable and frowned upon.

    Rabindranath Tagore, the Indian polymath, emphasized singing as a natural form of self-expression in schools. Our gender-less soul has all qualities some to the fore and some in background, they all need to be nurtured to feel fulfilled. Logic and reason as well as feeling and intuition.

    Current schooling system is only meant for industrial age era to produce widgets and produce doctors, engineers, lawyers etc. with no understanding of deeper human needs, no understanding of linkages between body, mind, ego, intellect, chit (no parallel word in English), prana (no equivalent in English), consciousness, soul. So, how can ignorant person produce produce of well rounded school. No wonder everyone rebels with school life.

  4. Very well said. Everything in this world has two aspect, one is physical and the other is spiritual. Now ancient Indian vedic focussed more on spiritual aspect and less on physical. That knowledge is completely lost now and we study, experiment, devote more time on understanding the physical aspect of matter.

  5. True a lot of knowledge is withdrawn and lost, but nothing is underserving – we at our level of development deserve this ignorance – for our level of development this is what we are capable of handling. If we get the knowledge to manipulate gravity, soon someone will create black hole. Look what humans have done with nuclear fission already.

    Some knowledge is present and can be accessed, also great minds will re-discover lost knowledge if mind is applied. Many scriptures of the world have knot points and allegories, where as the meaning is hidden from plain sight. Only when one is sufficiently spiritually developed is the hidden meaning fully known. They are formulaes into our inner workings.

    I'll give you two examples one from Christ and other from Rishi Vyas without going into details of the meaning:

    In Bible Christ says “Snake talking in the garden of Eden”, “If thine eye be single thine whole body shall be full of light”.

    – Snakes don't talk, do they, they never have! Never, not even in days of Christ, so what is it ?

    – We don't have one eye

    In Mahabharata battle of Kurukshetra five brothers fight hundered brothers, written by Rishi Vyasa. You won't believe but scripture have multiple meanings for various levels of understanding, real meaning is not know to common man. I will give you one hint – 100 brothers were not really born or existed, some characters of Mahabharata were real and true and the story was woven around those characters to conceal the inner meaning.

    Eg: No King of the world gives following names his son, Mr. Wicked, Mr. Evil, Mr. Bad Ruler (Duryodhana, Dushyasana translate to them)
