Maharishi Speaks to Students and Educators

Continued from last week

Comparison of modern science with Maharishi’s Vedic Science
Modern science
Vedic Science

• Provides incomplete and fragmented knowledge of Natural Law. As life is holistic, it cannot be completely lived on the basis of incomplete knowledge—A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Incomplete knowledge of Natural Law does not harness the complete evolutionary power of Natural Law. This results in the continuous violation of the holistic value of Natural Law, which impedes progress and even destroys life. *

•Provides complete and holistic knowledge of Natural Law to gain the support of Natural Law, bringing life in accordance with Natural Law, resulting in the spontaneous ability to live full evolutionary value of Natural Law in daily life.

•Does not provide the source and goal of knowledge.

•Makes the source, course, and goal of all knowledge lively in everyone’s awareness.

• Puts man on a never-ending pursuit of knowledge, which does not satisfy the thirst for knowledge, thus leading to perpetual dissatisfaction, frustration and stress in life.

•Delivers the fruit of all knowledge to everyone—
life free from mistakes and suffering—life in fulfilment in the state of Unity Consciousness, with the ability to know anything, do anything, and accomplish anything.

* Incomplete knowledge, based on isolated areas of experimental investigation, has created a society full of problems and suffering, in which it is difficult to live a healthy and happy life. For example, the harmful side-effects of modern medicine; the pollution of air, water, and food produced by industrial and chemical technology promoted by modern science; and the destructive power of electronic and nuclear technologies have all affirmed the truth: A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
