"वेदाय वेदजीवाय वेदगुह्याय वै नमः |" [स्कन्द पुराण]
अर्थात् : "जो वेदस्वरूप, वेद को जीवन देनेवाले तथा वेदों में छिपे हुए गूढ़ तत्व हैं, उनको नमस्कार है " |
Meaning : "Salutation to ---That which is form of Veda, That which gives life to Veda and to those hidden esoteric elements (tattva) existent in Veda. "
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER(- Francis Bacon); VEDIC KNOWLEDGE IS SUPERPOWER [- MVIVVU] :
The influence of the Veda is remarkably perceptible in the development and growth of Indian science,
art, literature and philosophy. It has been affirmed that the Veda contains a vast body of scientific
knowledge and that it anticipates even the most modern ideas of Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy.
His Holiness Sri Dr. B.C.Budhacharan 'FlyingYogi'
देहस्थाः सर्वविद्याश्च देहस्थाः सर्वदेवताः ।
देहस्थाः सर्वतीर्थानि गुरुवाक्येन लभ्यते ॥
"All kinds of knowledge (para & apara) is within this (human) body. All Goddesses –Gods resides within this same
(human) body. (Obviously) All pilgrims are located inside this body. These secrets are exposed on believing & implementing
the instructions of Guru."
Wordly sciences (अपरा विद्या) lead human beings to worldly prosperity (अभ्युदय); while the
transcendental science (परा विद्या) deals with the inner progress of human being towards his original destination, and
leads him to the Eternal bliss (निःश्रेयस) or the Realization of the Self. It need not be supposed from this classification
that the Hindu thinkers concentrated their attention on निःश्रेयस alone by ignoring worldly prosperity and worldly sciences.
The progress of worldly sciences in India can be seen in the development of sixty four arts (कला) and fourteen branches of
Human Knowledge (विद्या). This lore has found expression in some written works on the respective subjects and has been handed
down by oral tradition from generation to generation in several families and classes noted for specialty in it. The paucity
of written works on it, modern machinery, industrialization and general apathy have, however, given a serious set-back to all
of it, and the wordly sciences in India in their struggle for existence are on the point of being extinct.
VEDIC SCIENCES [Positive (+ve) Sciences in Vedas] :
The Vedic science encompasses the extensive cultivation and culture of knowledge
of diverse branches of scientific and philosophical insights as found recorded in the Vedas, upa-Vedas
and vedangas etc., whose foundation head and origin was the unique principal propounded by the Vedic
Rishi Kapila. This unique principal subsequently called as prapanca and panchavimsati Tattva was
enunciated about six millennium back. This principle laid the foundation and was the origin of the
systems of numerologies: Patiganita (Arithmetic), Bijaganita (Algebra) Jyamiti or Sulba (Geometry),
Trikonamiti (Trigonometry), Sthapatya Vidhya (Engineering), Padharth Vidhya (Physics), Rasayana Vidhya
(Chemistry), Jyotirvidhya (Astronomy) and other sciences; and simultaneously parallel development of
many distinctive philosophical insights took place.
“Several studies have pointed to the increasing significance of knowledge and Traditional Knowledge
systems in sustainable development in India. The culture and knowledge systems of indigenous people
and their institutions provide useful frameworks, ideas, guiding principles, procedures and practices
that can serve as a foundation for effective endogenous development options for restoring social,
economic and environmental resilience in many parts of the country. It is therefore essential that
Traditional Knowledge Systems in the developing countries should not be overshadowed by the domination
of cultures that foster inequality and materialism. Traditional Knowledge is a pluralistic approach for
conserving and managing natural resources. Traditional Knowledge is dynamic - new knowledge is continuously
added. Such systems innovate from within and will also internalize, use and adapt external knowledge to suit
the local situation. These knowledge systems have much to offer to policy-makers, environmental managers,
administrators, and stakeholders”.
