Talk 457.


Mrs. Rosita Forbes was said to be in India. Sri Bhagavan said: The explorers seek happiness in finding curiosities, discovering new lands and undergoing risks in adventures. They are thrilling. But where is pleasure found? Only within. Pleasure is not to be sought in the external world.

Dear prasanth,

This incidentally reminds me about the famous experiment done
by a group of 10,000 scientists in the Swiss-French border.  I have
already written about this in the past.  These scientists have made
a Large Hadron Collider, a machine full of large tubes of about 36 kms long, and they have made a proton move faster into that tube in near-light velocity and this proton would collide with another proton coming from the opposite direction inside the tube.  They say that such collision will help them in knowing the first particle that came about after the Big Bang Collision in the universe several billion years ago.  The first particle is called Boson or God's Particle,
the prime mover of the universe. The scientists have not so far been successful.  The machine has stopped working a few times
and the experiment is continuing.  The U.S/French/Swiss Govts are
pumping millions of dollars into the project.  Stephen Hawking,
a famous asrto-scientist, the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics
in Cambridge, U.K. (he is partially invalid and he is the author of the
famous book The Brief History of Time) has already forecast that these scientists would never be able to discover the God's Particle.

The interesting story further:

These scientists in their large laboratory, at the entrance, has
got installed a metal icon of Nataraja, the Cosmic Dancer,
the Hindu God, Siva.  They garland the icon daily and they stand in silent prayer for two minutes before they start their day's work.

Nataraja must be laughing within Himself.

Arunachala Siva.

well said Subramanian Garu.

Its like saying "Thank God i am a atheist".

But Subramanian Garu  Hawking seems to be atheist.

Hawking takes an agnostic position on matters of religion.He has repeatedly used the word "God" (in metaphorical meanings) to illustrate points made in his books and public speeches. His ex-wife, Jane, however, said during their divorce proceedings that he was an atheist.Hawking has stated that he is "not religious in the normal sense" and he believes that "the universe is governed by the laws of science

Anyhow As guru ramana says

Quote
“The mind is like akasa (ether of space). Just as there are objects in space, so there are thoughts in the mind.... One cannot hope to measure the universe and study the phenomena. It is impossible. For the objects are mental creation; it is like trying to stamp with one’s foot on the head of one’s shadow; the farther one moves the farther goes the shadow’s head.

Dear prasanth,

Stephen Hawking, I would say was rather an agnostic and not an
atheist.  His sufferings in life, which are quite great, have made
him believe that God is a person who is cruel.  In the Brief History
of Time, he says:  "I do not know about God's ways."

He agrees that the universe is governed by some laws of nature,
which work methodically, in a clock-work fashion.  No devitation
in the laws of nature.  The Sun does not rise, suddenly one day,
in the West.  The absolutely scientific mechanism is under the
power of a Force which governs this and this is God.  One can
call it Nature or Super Force or God or Atma or Arunachala.  Only
names are different.

Arunachala Siva.
