Abstract

1.In Vedas are classified into ‘Shruti’ and ‘Smriti’.
2.‘Shruti’ is pure science whereas ‘Smriti’ is applied science.
3.Core truth in pure science remains unchanged.
4.That spiritual truth is ‘I am Atman (soul)’.
5.Two questions are asked ‘who are you?’ & ‘who am I?’
6.The answer is divinity or soul.
7.Similarly, truth is abstract and unchanging in pure mathematics and science.
8.To be peaceful, cheerful and blissful is yoga.
9.Asanas are gross, Dhyana is subtle and Samadhi is subtlest.
10.Our body is to be utilized for realization of ‘Brahman’.
