HINDU AND VEDIC KNOWLEDGE IN
All knowledge has two sides; theory and
practice. In the spiritual systems of India, Vedic science presents the theory and the
systems of Yoga are the practice. They are the spiritual side of the religion we know as
Hinduism. Veda itself means knowledge, wisdom or vision (as in our related European words
of wit and wisdom from the German, idea, originally wide a, from the Greek and video from
the Latin). Yoga itself means the practical application of knowledge.
It is harnessing the energy developed through knowledge to
achieve the maximum energization of our being. Hence Veda and Yoga are one as theory
and practice. Those who try to divide them up do not understand them. Both are aspects of
an ancient universal spiritual science which we are again today seeking to restore as part
of our movement towards a global culture.
