Science & Spirituality

Science and spirituality have the same language, so there’s never a conflict.

“Science and spirituality have come very close. Today that gap which we used to feel is not there. Science has recognized the benefits of meditation, the benefits of chanting. For instance, the impact of chanting on the brain, the reduction in dopamines and serotonin in your system, and the impact of meditation or breathing on the endocrine system of has been established today. Nobody refutes the fact that we have a subtle body, a body of energy, and it’s very unique to everyone.

Religion and science are poles apart because religion says first you believe and then one day you will find the truth. But spirituality says differently. It says you experience now, and then if you want to believe or don’t believe, it’s up to you.”
