“Sometimes I act out so loud, weird, and in an unpredictable way, that I really don’t know who is acting from within.” Do you also feel same, sometimes? Then, you could go on reading further. This article might help you to find reason behind all such dilemmas. ‘Know thyself’ is the philosophy that has shaken the root of all existential and cosmic science. Through deeper understanding of self, one could know the bigger secrets of cosmos. It sounds so simple that all theories and knowledge accumulation fails before this fact. So well, do we know self? To understand ‘self’ better, it’s most important to know the cause of self. The cause of self or actual source of its appearance is based on what you feed to it. It goes same like ‘you are what you feed yourself’. A man staring at mobile screen 24/7 is most likely to forget his…

This article is for all those who are feeling negativity around, hearing death numbers, watching distressed people out there, thinking for universal wellness, learning about the days when things were good and stress-free. To all of those people, just sit tight in your seat and remember that life is a roller coaster, and right now we are plummeting in altitude, so we are experiencing pain, anxiety, fear, uncertainty, distress, and unhappiness. This is the moment we don’t want to see, so we’ve closed our eyes as we go towards the uneven path of life. Once we cross all the dangers around, life will become better. And so just experience it once, or you could either shut your eyes, and be in your own zone, praying for Universal wellbeing, and you will see the moment will pass soon. God is not so mean. It is testing us so we could evolve…

Life is playing game with death. Livings are wondering the great numbers death has already devoured. With all this chaos revolving around humanity, the precious nature of life has turned stronger than ever. The present goal of humanity is to see everyone out there safe and getting healed from the early loss of loved ones. The methods and advises to stay safe in these tough days are overflowing like the water of floods, where the safest either find place in woods or pulled back by those who care. With plenty of necessary and unnecessary advises, our mind is really burdened with the repeated occurring thoughts- “45 min exercise a day”, “consume plenty of water”, “eat green”, “don’t step out”, “cover up face and hands”, “meditate”, and so on. The formation of habit is not an easy thing. But the fear of sufferings necessarily brings us to the right habit at…

“The constant streaming in of the thoughts of others must confine and suppress your own;  and indeed in the long run paralyze the power of thought… The inclination of most scholar is a kind of fuga vacui or vacuum suction, from the poverty of their own minds,  which forcibly draws in the thoughts of others.. It is dangerous to read about a subject before we have thought about it ourselves.. When we read, another person thinks for us;  we merely repeat his mental process…so it comes about that is anyone spends almost whole day in reading, he gradually loses the capacity for thinking…experience of the world may be looked upon as a kind of text,  to which reflection and knowledge form the commentary. Where there is a great deal of reflection and intellectual knowledge,  and a very little experience, the result is like those books which have on each page two lines of text to forty lines of commentary.”

By definition, Logic is the systematic and correct procedure of thinking. “Logy” denotes methods for acquiring knowledge on each and every discipline of art, science, music, marketing, and politics. Logic is more related to science because it well signifies the rules and principles for its applications in general life. As Francis Bacon revealed that the subject could be useful only if it’s applicable. Logic is a art because without logic it is impossible to determine the subtleties of feelings, sentiments, emotions, and well being. Logic helps to bring clarity in thoughts and mental reasonings. It establishes a pattern to reach at the results in an accurate and earliest way. The art of logic is an effort to bring informal theory to the definitions of logic. Logic simplifies the irregular path. The main use of logic is to reach at the truth. The truth has no defined path. It could be…

Jiddu Krishnamurti “Freedom from the known” is a hand-book meant to transform the human life by projecting the mistakes humans are committing, in various fields of social, political, religious, personal and relationships. Krishnamurti has focused on changing the perspective or thinking of an individual. We mostly live our life based on old beliefs, ideals, truth, circumstances, past experiences and common sayings. We mostly suffer because we try to find the solutions of fresh problems in old books, scriptures, thoughts, and beliefs. It is to be noted that for new problems, there is always a fresh solution. To get solutions, we need to change our perspectives by interpreting the various dimensions of a particular problem. For Krishnamurti, faith is righteous until it supports you in growing. In case, it is pulling you back, and causing a hindrance towards your spiritual goals, then there is no usage of keeping old faith. In…

Radhakrishnan’s religion is Spiritual or Universal religion that is developed through spiritual ideas. Universal religion is the transformation of world and ‘formed religion’ into the several spiritual manifestations. To establish Universal religion, one needs to form Universal Philosophy. Radhakrishnan used term Absolute for universal religion, where religion is the primary spiritual reality. And the Universe is Secondary derivative reality. Radhakrishnan established relations between being and reality that gives shape to the definitions of religions. For him, religion is a movement and growth whose process is not static, but dynamic. In Radhakrishnan’s religion, Morality could never be separated from any religions. Reference: Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, “East and West in Religion” (1933) Paul Arthur Schilpp, “The Philosophy of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan” (1952)              

Swami Vivekananda is a Contemporary Indian Philosopher who advocated Indian Philosophy and Yoga-Vedanta among westerners. His Mystic Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa guided him about the scientific approach of spirituality. Vedanta arises out of Upanishad. It represents the monism of Upanishads and Non-duality of Brahman. The Brahman or Ultimate reality is Absolute. Practical Vedanta is an approach to realize divinity within individual. It is the practice of Yoga as taught in Bhagavad-Gita, and includes western Materialism (social service) and Indian spiritualism. It mentions all religions to be an equal contributor to Truth. The utility of Practical Vedanta is Unity, Morality and Liberation.     

Experimental philosophy is defined as the process of bringing empirical studies to the philosophical problems. Empirical studies includes the use of survey, reasonings, statistical analysis, graph interpretation, data comparison and logical findings. Experimental philosophy could bring truth to various dubious concepts. It spreads lights to the world of non-believers and doubtful characters. Despite having its positive role, it is coming with several challenges that could not be ignored. Before coming to challenges, let’s mark a difference between philosophical analysis and experimental findings, so as to make a clear understanding of the concepts to which experimental philosophy could be applied. Philosophical Analysis Experimental findings It is Qualitative It is quantitative It is Subjective It is objective It involves theoretical approach It involves practical approach It has assumptions. It has hypothesis It generally uses grammatical rules. It uses statistical and operative rules Consistency is not needed Consistency is must In this way,…
