What is real? Modern science has been uncovering the laws of nature for over two hundred years. What conclusions have been come to? How do these discoveries relate to one’s own inner experience of life? Do the laws of nature described by modern physics conflict with the descriptions of reality found in the ancient Vedic Literature? Or are they somehow similar?

This course looks at the most fundamental understandings of the universe from the perspective of Maharishi Vedic Science and from physics. The two fields will be compared, contrasted, and discussed in terms of how they relate to one’s own daily life.
