Anekanta In The Year Of Albert Einstein

Posted: 20.05.2005

Dear Reader,

2005 is dedicated to the man who brought to us the Special Relativity, on a scientific basis : Albert Einstein.

Although TV stations and magazines all over the world pick up the Theory of Special Relativity and present the idea in video clips, stories and illustrations - the idea is still provoking us to rack our brains over it. But we accept the "new world of relativity", step by step, at least those do, who are happy that their handys are working by Einstein-synchroniced satelites, based on the Theory of Relativity, as well as GPS does in your cars.Progressiv postmodern society is honouring the "3 Alberts": Albert Einstein, Albert Schweitzer and Albert Hoffmann.

Here and now we should know that Albert Einstein was also a spiritual man.
Summarizing his religious beliefs, he once said: "My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind." He also said (in an essay reprinted in Living Philosophies, vol. 13 (1931)): "A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity; in this sense, and this alone, I am a deeply religious man."

He simply admired the beauty of nature and the universe. From a letter written in English, dated March 24, 1954, Einstein wrote, "....If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

As far as we know there is no publication on the parallelism of Anekant and Einstein's Special Relativity.
But obviously there is...

When we started to put online: Anekant - The Third Eye by Acharya Mahaprajna last December, the scanned version had to be checked page by page for scan mistakes. So this was the third time for me to read this inspiring book, and indeed, in this third round I perceived a lot of messages I missed the 2 times before..... and of course this gave motivation to realise anecantic view in daily life.

It's a fantastic tool to change consciousness, thinking, kind of comunication and conduct. But all this can only happen, when we use the anecantic view permanently. Everyday life is implicating situations that make us feel forced to give up anecantic view for the benefit of a fast decision bringing us ahead of the problems.... but this shortcut is turning up the problems in a new face, maybe next day, maybe later, but when we are alert, we are able to recognize it. As well you might remember a relevant chapter of Anekant - The Third Eye. This book is adviced to be read again and again, which is not a waste of time, but a deepening of understanding.

Good news for those with burning questions.....
