A real instance from the life of Lord Buddha can be cited as the perfect epitome for getting the knowledge of topic in more deeper aspects. Once Buddha was walking from one town to another with a few of his followers. While they were travelling they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there. Buddha told one of his disciples “I am thirsty. Get me some water from the lake there”. The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes in the water. And right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake.

I do not think it is fit to drink .” They waited for half an hour there. Again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink . The disciple obediently went back to the lake .This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it . The mud had settled down and the water above looked fit to drink . So, he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha. Continue Reading
Before we ponder into this intriguing topic, it’s of utmost importance to analyze the matter of overwhelming curiosity. As science has thick blanket of mathematical calculations, underneath this lies a thick blanket of mathematical calculations. As mentioned in the holy bible pertaining Adam and Eve. How they started their life by eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Adam started differentiating between himself and the material world.

Getting inquisitive to know about the True meaning of words scientific and spiritualism is not an old concept. As per the formal definitions, the former stands for something which is technical, systematic, logical, precise, exact, controlled etc. whereas, the latter stands for religious, holy, saintly, pious, sacred, devout and divine etc. so as per the dictionary meaning of these two words, they seem to be the antonym of each other. It does rather seem that word logical stands for one end of the spectrum, while the divine for the other end of it. It further leads to the generation of an idea that the person with divine qualities lacks logic and precision in the thoughts, and does not live systematically by controlling his way of life. Further pondering into the matter, it can be analyzed that the word pious means virtuous, dutiful and moral; devout is dedicated, committed ; and saintly is flawless and perfect .i further realize that then why does a discrepancy does creep in while differentiating science and spirituality ? a person who knows science may also be pious, holy , sacred, devout and divine, and above board , saintly also pertains flawless and perfect. Hence one can say that these two words are not at variance with each other.
