Science vs Religion Swami Chinmayanandaji a renowned saint, was met by a a 'secular' minded journalist, who generally bent upon showing Hinduism in poor light, vis a vis other religions, asked a question to Swamiji: Q: Who is the founder of Islam? A: Prophet Mohammad. Q: Who is the founder of Christianity? A: Jesus Christ. Q: Who is the founder of Hinduism? Thinking that Swamiji has been trapped in a ticklish situation with no answer, the lady journalist enthusuastically proceeded further: Yes. There is no founder and hence, Hinduism is not a religion or Dharma at all. A: Then, Swamiji said: You are right. Hinduism is not a religion. It is a Science. She did not understand that. Now it was turn of Swamiji to put some questions to journalist lady. Q: Who is the founder of Physics? Ans: No one person. Who is the founder of Chemistry? Ans: No one person. Who is the founder of Biology? Ans: No single person. Many many persons, from time to time, contributed to the wealth of knowledge of any Science. Swamiji continued: Hindu Dharma is a Science, developed over the centuries, contributed by saints and sages for giving right direction to the society. Islam has only one book -Quran. Christianity has only one book -Bible. But for Hinduism, I can take you to a library and show you hundreds of books. Hence, Hinduism is a scientific religion- called Sanatana Dharma . Eternal Dharma.
