Hinduism : Part-12.
Monotheism and Polytheism Reconciled
Modern science prides itself in being impartial observers and relentless pursuers of truth.
They want facts, facts that are verifiable, tangible, reproducible any number of times given the same circumstances.
So they say, "We are the seekers of truth. We are in search of practical realities, of verifiable and provable facts, not in presumptions or assumptions."
They are seekers in pursuit of tangible facts, and they have marvellously succeeded in making themselves aware of ever so many facts in ever so many fields of human knowledge in this outer universe.
But our ancients experienced something without which no other experience is possible.
They declared, "We have not bothered ourselves about searching, observing, experiencing and becoming aware of facts in this passing projection or manifestation. We have made our quest in another dimension of the human being, and we have discovered the fact of awareness."
