REFLECTIONS ON SOLITUDE and other ESSAYS explores a diverse range of topics. The excerpts below show how elegantly he deals with such topics:
Mysticism in Mathematics -“Twentieth century giants such as Gödel and Einstein come to mind as examples of modern mystics; their mathematical achievements are crowned without their denying the existence of a supreme reality. Despite the scepticism of the scientific community, the fact remains that mathematics and mysticism exist concurrently as necessary requisites for anyone who wishes to adequately comprehend the universe.”
Limiting question and science – “Remember, a limiting question is a question which is relevant to the nature of being but cannot be answered by science alone even though it remains integral to the scientific community. By embracing religion, science can turn yesterday’s limiting questions into today’s newfound discoveries, thereby broadening the frontiers of science and our understanding of the nature of existence as a whole.”
Importance of current moment – “The Favourite Student describes an essential philosophy: “There are three principles by which I live my life. The first principle is that the most important time is the present moment. This never changes. My focus and awareness is on the immediate present. The second principle is that the most important person in my life is the person that I am within the present moment. This never changes. All of my focus and attention is on the person that I am with. The third principle is that the most important action for me to take is to love the person that I am within the present moment. This never changes. All of my focus and attention is on loving the person or people that I am with in the present moment. Therefore, it follows that in every moment the student or students that I am with are my favourite students.”
Corporate culture – “Intellectuals, even organic intellectuals with counter-hegemonic values, retain the ability to play a significant role in sustaining consumer culture. “
Love- “Love is born through the realization that if I hurt another then I am hurting myself also. This sense of unity is necessary in order for love to be present. Duality and separation cannot exist with love.”
