Hindu Sastra (Science) of Knowledge


Knowledge (Jnana) has no unique form of
existence. It can be preserved, altered or lost. Hindu Nyaya Sastra identified totality of knowledge with following components called pramanas:

Components of knowledge (pramana):


1. Perception by ordinary senses (laukika) and by attained experience (alaukika). 2. Inference (anumna), needs investigation to resolve. 3. Comparison (upamna) or analogy or by equating with known objects.
Goddess Saraswati as source of Knowledge, Art and Wisdom

4. Testimony (past records and witness).

5/77, Yoga and Symbolism by Yerramsetti Giridhar; giridhary@rediffmail.com

Knowledge has life element (personalized perception) and time dependency (testimony may be available or lost), hence it is dynamic in nature.

Hindu way of Knowledge Acquisition and Application


As stated by Hindu Philosophy: 1. Acquiring true knowledge (Divya Jnana) is always stretcherous and painful journey in the myriad of fallacy manifestations called Maya (unclear barrier). 2. Therefore , one should not compromise or delimit himself in reaching divine goals (Ex: wisdom on social objectives, morals, serving the needy, etc). 3. Humanity and environmental protection (Ahimsa) has to absorbed as is the order.

The Tantra, when the objectivity is divine seeking


It is based on Samkhya Yoga, which is a Dvaita (dualistic) theory, and it says Purusha (Divine) and Prakriti (ever changing nature) are initiating the Jeeva (for living).
But, due to desires, the individual is continued to be in bondage or attachment to the surroundings; which results in suffering to Jeeva. The divine goal is to overcome the bondage by attaining Moksha (Emancipation), Moksha means Jeeva is liberated to be with Divine. The process of liberating Jeeva is called Swatantra Paratantra Union, explained in slide No:13.

Some Important Sutras (Rules) about Jeeva

All living species and individuals are independent and no union is possible.
All livings cell will either divide or die, except for seed cells, fuse to form a new cell. This process constitutes life energy. But, the word Jeeva is know for living. The new English translation for Jeeva is alive. There is no identified governing force with proof that let to existence of Jeeva. Jeeva new its past, knows completely its surroundings, environment and circumstances it exists. It has its own kalpana of living by virtue of its ego. Scientists found Spores (tiny living substance) of 40 million years old, still waiting for proper living condition to reproduce.

Notion of Time and Clock, in search of Purusha (divine)


Newton: Dimension independent of events, in which events occur in sequence. Time is absolute. Time and Clock are same. Leibniz: Time is neither an event nor a thing, thus it is not by itself measurable nor it can be travelled.

Kent: Time does not refer to any kind of entity that flows, Hour Glass that objects move through or that is a container of events. Hence, Time and Clock are not same.
Einstein: Events do happen at their own time, but sensing of the event is relative to the dynamics of observer. Time and space are dualistic and transcend each other.

Hindu Kalacharkam: Cycle of birth and death repeats, hence time is not absolute, Clock Tower but future events are not predictable due to Kalpana. Secunderabad Time is not predictable, but Clock is predictable.

Hindu Conclusion
Sri Adi Sankaracharya Advaita (non-duality) Philosophy says the following 1 and 2 points: 1. Purusha (Divine) and Prakruti coexists together but changes in Prakruti is always due to Kalpana of Purusha. 2. It is not possible to be understand Purusha and its Kalpana due to presence of Maya. 3. Search of Purasha never been completed. But, four fundamental forces of nature, Strong force, Field (Electromagnetic) force, Weak (Van der Waals) force and Gravitational force resemble Shakti, Vishnu, Bramha and Shiva respectively.

Sri Adi Sankaracharya

4. There is no existence of unified force and single seed that let to creation of universe, as per Hindu Sastra.
