Query: Albert Einstein and Bhagavad
Albert Einstein and bhagavad gita... this fact is not palatable to many scientists world over! Why? Those who did
not believe in Hinduism... the sacred texts of Hinduism... how could they ever believe that Albert Einstein... the
famous physicist believed in teachings of Bhagavad Gita more than anything else!
What people fail to realize that theory of relativity discovered by Albert Einstein owed its
existence to wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita! Albert Einstein seriously indulged in Bhagavad Gita in later stages
of his life yet, he believed in efficacy of Bhagavad Gita from initial stages of life! Albert Einstein was a
faithful believer of principles of life contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
The teachings of Bhagavad Gita contained everything worth knowable
by every scientist world over! Right from beginning of cosmos... when God Almighty (termed Brahman in Hinduism)
exploded self with a big bang... to dissolution of cosmos (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)... all is explicitly
detailed in Bhagavad Gita to minutest
By indulgence in Bhagavad Gita... brain of Albert Einstein activated 4%... the remaining 96%
lying dormant all the time! In case of normal human beings... 99 portion of brain always lay dormant. Why? Ordinary
mortals used their brain only one percent! It is only after gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... our brain
became hundred percent active... never before!
The brain of enlightened ones like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed
was activated hundred percent... prime reason why entire wisdom contained in cosmos became available to them on
their tips! An enlightened one finally becomes knower of all... gains omniscience for all practical
The moment our brain becomes hundred percent active... one becomes omniscient forever!
Reaching stage of enlightenment... kaivalya jnana is the end goal of life for every human being... prime reason why
Albert Einstein wanted to study Bhagavad Gita seriously! But his indulgence in Bhagavad Gita was delayed. He grew
old by the time Einstein indulged in Bhagavad Gita!
Albert Einstein always regretted this fact of life that he could not indulge in Bhagavad Gita in the earlier stages
of life! Had Albert Einstein indulged in Bhagavad Gita in the initial stages of his life... he would have become
the first scientist in world to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
As a scientist... believing in God Almighty is difficult! Why? Science demands proofs that
are not forthcoming in field of pure spirituality! As ordained by God Almighty... the entire system of God is based
on absolute faith! Unless we had absolute faith in God Almighty... one could not travel spiritual path diligently
Developing faith in God Almighty is never sudden... it develops with time! When six years of
age I had absolute faith in God Almighty! Such a development could not have been affected by karma performed by me
in present life! Probably from the last manifestation undertaken by my soul atman, I must have started travelling
By 11 years of age my resolve to see and meet in this very life became absolute! At 13 years
of age I finally decided to go in search of God wholeheartedly. 25 years of yoga meditation... my patience,
persistence and perseverance finally paved way for reaching God in present life! In the wee hours of third of
August 1993, at 37 years of age I finally realized God!
I have come across many scientists world over who did not believe in God! A believer of science definitely wants
proofs! No matter what the logistics... such people never get convinced in matters spiritual! My father is a
scientist... although he believes in God... he also desires proofs for everything! His belief in God is
Most scientists’ world over left spiritual things to chance! In domain of God Almighty ifs
and buts carried no meaning... prime reason why spirituality can never be understood by scientists’ world over!
Travelling spiritual path is charting unknown territory... travelling an unknown path! Spiritual path always is
travelled all alone. We never get spiritual masters to guide us in the journey of life!
Absolute faith is such an ingredient of cosmic life... harboring which any human being world
over could definitely reach God in one's lifetime! In present scientific age God Almighty could not be reached via
path of bhakti yoga... but following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita... by taking path of jnana yoga... path
of absolute wisdom... one could definitely reach God in present life!
While talking Bhagavad Gita... Albert Einstein never minced words! Albert Einstein truly
eulogized wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita (also termed Vedanta in Hinduism)! Even though a traveler of scientific
path, Albert Einstein believed that travelling spiritual path one may reach God! No scientists’ world over ever
talked of spiritual path in absolute terms!
Unless we were absolute in our thinking... unless we had only one goal of life, one would never reach God in
present life! Albert Einstein truly wanted to reach nearer God in his lifetime but his indulgence in Bhagavad Gita
in later stages of his life was the biggest hurdle! No matter how best Albert Einstein tried... he could not fathom
depth of entire wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita!
Albert Einstein freely advocated studying Bhagavad Gita even as a scientist! The scientific
fraternity thought Albert Einstein had gone mad! So was not the case. Albert Einstein was the most successful
scientist of his era... his dwellings in teachings of Bhagavad Gita finally paid dividends. Following Bhagavad Gita
Albert Einstein unveiled many principles of life in his lifetime!
I receive many queries as to how could I say Einstein eulogized Gita! Knowing Bhagavad Gita
from A to Z, understanding theory of relativity in totality... relating the two is not difficult! Albert Einstein
truly indulged in Bhagavad Gita from bottom of his heart. He loved reading Bhagavad Gita... studied Bhagavad Gita
whenever he got time!
