Vedic Science Of Transcendence - Exiting The Universe
- Caitanya Mahaprabhu
Beyond dualism are several stages of transcendental consciousness. One will lead to absolute knowledge, another to oneness in diversity, some paths will disintegrate the spirit soul entirely, and the highest goal is liberation in eternal existence, spiritual cognizance, and unlimited joy in a spiritual body in the transcendental world.
This realm lies far beyond the universe and numbers of other universes, higher dimensions and parallel worlds. The cosmology is based on the ancient scriptures of India and the experience of self-realised souls in an unbroken disciplic succession of seers and sages. The author illustrates their states of awareness with many references to the post-modern cultures in the Western world, which may be quite revealing and embarassing to some.
To a large extent, pure transcendental consciousness is unknown even to great thinkers and philosophers. We will explain what exactly is transcendence and what is not. Illustrated with examples it will also become clear, that ancient knowledge is scientific and modern science is not.
The transcendental realms have longtime been known to small circles of great sadhus, who decided to disclose their intelligence to a world searching for spiritual advancement and establised truths. It is confidential knowledge to serve the sincere soul in Kali-yuga wishing to terminate perpetual misery in a rigid material world. Magic and mysticism will not do.
Gorgeously illustrated with artwork and professional formatting, this book will not disappoint.
Empiricism – The method of scientific research is based on sense perception and experiment called empiricism. Our life in the universe is programmed for material sense experience. Sense perception can only take place in a vessel accommodating the processing of opposite values: hot and cold, light and dark, good and evil. These dualistic observations are by the subject being interpreted in three different conditions, or modes of material nature (ignorance, passion, knowledge).
First, all observation is individual. This is a self-evident fact. Second, all observation is relative. This is caused by the three modes of material nature. The qualities 'individual' and 'relative' indicate, that all sensorial observation is subjective and differentiated, in any way opposite to objective and uniform. Objectivity and uniformity, however, are claimed to be the standard criteria prescribed for the results of modern scientific research, since science should be precise, objective, value free (excluding ethics and morality on a practical level) and experiments should be universally repeatable.

But as you will understand now, objectivity and uniformity are non-existent in any scientific discipline, since the conditioned vessels of undisciplined scientists are in ignorance of the transcendental stages of consciousness beyond duality. This is crucial. In the mainstream academia, there are hardly any scholars, who are disciplined in higher knowledge and truth beyond dualism, except perhaps for monism ('I am God'). The conclusion must therefore be, that modern scientific renditions of reality are highly particular and not universal, at all.
Although nirvisesa-brahma-vada and maya-vada may be highly atheistic conceptions of the Truth similar to modern science, they contain objectivity and uniformity at least, contrary to modern sciences. (Click image to enlarge)
God's opulences veiled – In their unalloyed love, the inhabitants (vrajavasis) of Vraja are in no way aware of Krishna as Supreme Lord possessing unlimited opulences: complete power, complete strength, complete wealth, complete knowledge, complete beauty and complete renunciation. Nanda Baba, in the pastime of Govardhana Hill, possesses the rasa (realisation) of parental love (vatsalya). The vrajavasis consider Krishna their son, their friend, or lover, who performs magical feats, who kills demons disguised as animals, who rescues River Yamuna from deadly poison, and who lifts up Govardhana Hill to protect the cows and the vrajavasis against the horrendous thunderstorm sent by Indra, King of the Heavenly Planets.
Since antiquity (Rg-veda), King Indra had been worshipped by those, who aim for a cage with golden shackles in Heaven instead of leaden ones on Earth. Indra was furious, when Krishna hijacked his festival by redirecting the worship of masses of people from subtle material Heaven to transcendental Govardhana, at the age of seven. Krishna had suggested his father to honor Govardhana Hill instead of Indra. Since his father loves him dearly, Nanda Baba followed his advise conscientiously. Out of anger and jealousy, Indra sent a torrent of rain for seven days in an attempt to drown Vrndavana. Krishna protected the vrajavasis and the cows against Indra's Climategate by lifting Govardhana Hill like an umbrella, for seven days. Krishna's action was very smart, because the worship of matter is a miserable waste of time and transcendental consciousness is a joy for ever. By redirecting a mass of people from matter to spirit, Krishna liberated their souls ensnared in material nature endlessly recycling in a prison of permanent war and soul migration. When an amazed neighbor asked Nanda Baba, "Is Krishna God?" Nanda Baba replied, "No, no, he's my son!"
