  • Quiz : What general principles can you draw from the story of 6 blind men? What can we learn from it? Listen to the Story of Six Blind men and the Elephant from your teacher.

  • UNDERSTANDING THEOrganizerDesignerControllerThree Ways Of Gaining Knowledge :

    1. Pratyaksa Praman (Direct Sense Perception )2. Anumana Praman (Theories Based On Evidence )3.Sabda Praman (Hearing From A Bonafide Authority)SUPER INTELLIGENCE

  • PRATYAKSA PRAMANWE CANNOT ACQUIRE ABSOLUTE KNOWLEDGE THROUGH MATERIAL SENSES.OUR SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE IS RELATIVE

  • 3) TENDENCY TO COMMIT MISTAKES4) CHEATING PROPENSITYWe cannot understand the Absolute Truth through our blunt material senses because of the following.. FOUR DEFECTS

    1) IMPERFECT SENSES2) TO BE ILLUSIONED

  • Four Defects : Imperfect sensesOUR EYES ARE BLIND outside the range of 400 to 700millmicron

    OUR EARS ARE DEAF outside the range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz Radio WavesX-RaysRVVisible Range

  • Four Defects : Imperfect sensesNoble Prize winning Physicist Eugene Wigner points out:

    Even if we photograph stars eventually we have to take in by our senses what the photo shows. Furthermore, without our senses we cannot handle a camera. Even if we amplified / refined by instruments the knowledge is no more perfect than our imperfect senses.ScientistAn uninformed Scientist may boast:

    We will use the instrument outside the range for perceiving things.

  • Four Defects : To be illusioned TONGUE : Orange after sugar = sour Orange after lemon = sweetEARS : Cannot distinguish hissing of a cooker and trainSKIN : same water touched with warm hand appears cool; touched with cold hands appears warm

  • Guess what Truth can you see in Darkness?

    I am groping in the dark, not knowing how to fulfill all my unlimited desires and expectations.

  • When the sun rises, the darkness is dispelled;When perfect knowledge is obtained, all illusion is dispelled.

    I am groping in the dark, not knowing how to fulfill all my unlimited desires and expectations.

  • Group Task (5 minutes)

    Group work: Each picture has at least two ways to see depending on what you choose to discard. Form groups to use your creativity and identify the two different ways of perceiving each of the pictures. What do you infer from such observations?

  • Fig 1Fig 3 Fig 2

  • Four Defects : To commit mistakesBrain was thought of as an organ to cool the bloodPituitary or Master glands were considered a vestige or useless tissue in body !Three astronomers recently discovered a significant mistake in the Hubble Constant, a value used as a cosmic yardstick to measure enormous distances in the universe.

  • Four Defects - Cheating Propensity1912 - Connecting Link Made-up

    1953 - Fraud Revealed : Human Skull & Filed Jaw THE PILTDOWN MAN FRAUD

  • ANUMANA PRAMAN(Theories based on Evidence)ANUMANAHypothesis on the knowledge acquired by direct perception

    It may have been like this, or perhaps it was like this...

  • ANUMANA PRAMAN(Theories based on Evidence)"... I am a firm believer that without speculation there is no good and original observation.After five years work I allowed myself to speculate on the subject, and drew up some short notes; these I enlarged in 1844 into a sketch of the conclusions, which seemed to me probable.. (Origin of Species).In one of his letters to A.R. Wallace (December 22, 1857), Darwin wrote:

  • ANUMANA PRAMANDarwins theory on How the Bear evolved into a monstrous whale ???

    In North America the black bear was seen swimming for hours with wide open mouth, thus catching like a whale, insects in water. Even in so extreme a case as this, if the supply of insects were constant, and if better adapted competitors did not already exist in the country, I can see no difficulty in a race of bears by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale. Origin of Species (1964 edition, page 184)

  • ANUMANA PRAMAN To suppose that the eye could have been formed by evolution, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.

  • RECORD OFTHE ROCKSMAN CAME FROM MONKEYSHUMAN BEINGS AND MONKEYS SIMULTANEOUSLY EXISTED MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO40,000100,000400,0001 million1.5 million2 millionAge of Rock Strata in Years

  • Collapse of Darwinism

  • SABDA PRAMAN Hearing from a Bonafide Authority

  • How can we understand the Supreme Person who is creator of infinite gigantic universes?

  • .tene brahma hriday adi kavaye.

    Srimad Bhagavatam 1.1.1

  • The Vedic knowledge was revealed by the Supreme Person, within the heart of the first created being, Brahma. SB 1.1.1

  • This Vedic wisdom came down in disciplic succession through aural reception.

  • Srimad Bhagavatam predicts about people in Kali-yugamand lazy;sumanda-mataya misguided;manda-bhgy unlucky;hi upadrut and above all disturbed.

  • Vysadeva, a literary incarnation of God, recorded all the Vedas in writing 5,000 years back for the benefit of people inKali Yuga.

  • The Vedas are also called as SHRUTIS or knowledge received through aural reception.

  • The means of Vedic knowledge is to accept an authority & learn the truth by inquiring submissively.

  • The Vedas offer insight into -Who am I ?Where have I come from ?Where do I go after death ?

  • The Vedas offer insight into -What is the purpose of my existence ?Who is God ?How am I related to God ?

  • Composed by sagesWording may change from age to ageRevealed absolute TruthEvery word unchanged eternallysisterssisterssisters

  • sarvasya cha hdi sanniviomatta smtir jnam apohana cavedai ca sarvair aham eva vedyovednta-kd veda- vid eva cham (Bhagavad Gita 15.15)

  • I am seated in everyone's heart, and from Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vednta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.

  • WHAT DID WE LEARN TODAY ? There are 3 ways of gaining Knowledge

    Pratyaksa, Anumana and Sabda. Pratyaksa Praman is direct sense perception. Pratyaksa knowledge is relative because of

    4 defects in living beings. Four defects - Imperfect senses, To be illusioned,

    To commit mistakes and Cheating propensity. Anumana Praman is based on hypothesis dependent on sense perception.

    Sabda Praman is hearing from a bonafide authority. Pratyaksa and Anumana gives relative knowledge ( like the story of 6 blind men) Sabda Praman gives Absolute knowledge and is most reliable and definite way of obtaining knowledge.
