This Division of Yoga and Physical Sciences consists of the Departments of physics, mathematics and engineering.
Objectives of Division:
To expand the realms of Physics and explore the tools of physics and mathematics in particular to gain greater insights into Reality/ Consciousness
Each Department offers short-term courses as well as elective courses to be chosen by MSc and Ph.D. students. There are both theory and practical courses offered as electives. The Department of Physics and Mathematics train the students in the most powerful tools of physics and mathematics in understanding the reality. Attempts to expand the realms of physics and mathematics to cover living systems including human brain and possibly intelligence are also made.
The Department of Engineering leads the students to understand the yogic dimensions of engineering. The effect of unseen esoteric dimensions enunciated in the books of yoga and spiritual lore will be studied in engineering structures.
