Swami Vivekananda An Intutive Scientist
By T.G.K. Murthy, 156 Pages, Paperback.
The author, a person of scientific pursuits and thinking, has dealt with various aspects of Swamiji's ideas, drawing parallels from various scientific works and explores the role of intuition in scientific discoveries.
Swami Vivekananda was a multifaceted genius. While his spiritual eminence and profound understanding of India and her culture, history, and future are well-known, his insights in physical sciences are lesser known. Swamiji was well-acquainted with the scientific thoughts of his times and was remarkably accurate in his observations and conclusions with regard to many scientific notions. What is more important is the ample hints he gave on ways to train the mind, arousing the unseen power of intution, which is vital to all scientific pursuits.
This book attempts to explore this aspect of Swamiji's personality and how scientific research can benefit from development of intuitive faculty inherent in all-a fact which Swamiji emphasized very often.
