Ancient Vedic Hindu Texts should be regarded as primary source of knowledge: ISRO Chief.

“The Vedic and ancient Greek writings constitute the core of ancient wisdom … the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Brahman Sutra, the Srimad Bhagavatam and the Mahabharata constitute the primary source of ancient wisdom,” ~ Kiran Kumar.

Our ancient texts should not be disregarded, ISRO chief A. S. Kiran Kumar says.

Sikim ManipalPTI | Manipal | Nov 21, 2015:: Stressing that the country’s pride resides in its glorious heritage, Indian Space Research Organization chairman AS Kiran Kumar on Saturday said its ancient texts which could yield vital knowledge, if verified, studied and researched properly, should not be disregarded.

Kumar said science as it is known today is of relatively modern origin but the traditions out of which it had emerged “reach back beyond recorded history.”

“It has evolved over many centuries and has now come to be described in terms of a well-recognized and well-defined series of steps.

“Widely accepted contemporary scientific theories, discoveries and inventions addressing fundamental issues of life and existence constitute the basis of modern scientific explanations,” he said in his convocation address at the Manipal University here in its 21st convocation.

“The Vedic and ancient Greek writings constitute the core of ancient wisdom … the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Brahman Sutra, the Srimad Bhagavatam and the Mahabharata constitute the primary source of ancient wisdom,” Kumar said.

Kumar stressed, “We should not disregard our ancient texts which could yield — if verified, studied and researched properly — vital knowledge.”

In this context, he noted that Nobel prize winner for medicine Chinese scientist Tu Youyou had attributed some of her research success in developing path-breaking anti-malarial drugs to herbs mentioned in more than 1,500 year old Chinese texts.

Citing another example, Kumar said on analysing previous research data from approximately 18,000 subjects, researchers have found that acupuncture was more effective than standard western care while treating various types of pain, including migraines and chronic back pain.

Similarly, the practice of meditation and yoga was believed to help “still the mind” and reach a heightened level of awareness, improving health and well-being as a by-product.

A recent study of Harvard Medical School scientists revealed how this mind-body/practice could affect genes that control stress levels and immune function.

After observing the high-stress individuals as they followed the study’s prescribed yoga and meditation practices, the team noticed an improved mitochondrial energy production, utilization and resilience, which helped reduce the stress linked to hypertension.

    Mr Kiran Kumar is right. We must learn and research our Holy Books. Muslims Rulers destroyed our language Sanskrit and India lost its connection with its heritage. British followed the same policy and so did the Congress. Hindus talk about our Veds, Puranh but can’t comprehend because we can’t read and understand Sanskrit language. Germans are smart people. Germans silently learned Sanskrit and translated most of our books into German language and secretly trying to learn what is in there. It is the utmost duty of Mr. Modi to look into this and offer incentives to the parents to teach their young kids Sanskrit language at early stage as a pilot programme at war footing before it is too late. Wake Up Hindus Teri Gatharhi me laga chore.
