    :hello: Science vs Religion:hello:

    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.

    @iyerviji @KashmirFlower
    :hello:Thanks for visiting / revisiting.
    The aphorism attributed to Relativity man crossedmy mind thus:

    Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." So said Albert Einstein, and his famous aphorism has been the source of endless debate between believers and non-believers wanting to claim the greatest scientist of the 20th century as their own.

    Thanks and Regards.
