The progress in natural sciences and technological advancement has provided tremendous
benefits and comforts to human society. Spirituality brings value to one’s existence and
it provides answers to the fundamental questions that bother inquisitive minds. From a
distance, science and spirituality may appear contradictory, and while pursuing a career in
one, the practice Of the Other may appear an impediment. But, on delving deeper, as many
of our founding fathers of science experienced, one would find that science and spirituality
complement each other. They are methodologies to understand the various facets of the
Absolute Truth. Science helps in spiritual realization. Spirituality helps in proper scientific
understanding and a balanced world-view. With a scientific outlook, a spiritualist serves
the society in a better way, and With a spiritual perspective, a scientist better appreciates
the Creator, His creations and their mysteries. Thus, a quest for science and spirituality
is always worth pursuing, and a proper understanding of both is essential for a harmony
between the self, the society, the nation and the world.
