HINDU AND VEDIC KNOWLEDGE IN MODERN AGE
As our materialistic science breaks through the ideas of time and space, we must begin to see the value of a spiritual science, a science of consciousness which encompasses all of life, outer and inner, a science of the eternal and the infinite. To rebuild such a spiritual science, we can find much of value in the ancient Vedic and Hindu teachings. This does not mean that we need only follow what remnants of Vedic science we have left today.

Nor does it mean that India today is a model culture for the world to follow. Much of the ancient system is fragmented, scattered and worn by time. We need to recreate it and integrate it into our own lives and our own world situation. It is not a new science for us to become slaves of but a way of knowledge that gives freedom, which awakens creative intelligence and allows us to go beyond all dependency upon external forms.

A science which rules us is a form of ignorance (nescience). It is the test of true knowledge that it gives freedom to both the mind and heart and helps us to understand and respect all humanity and all of life.
