I am so much fascinted by the concepts and ideologies of IONS. My greetings to all who made this instituute..recenctly came to know about IONS through THE LOST SYMBOL by DAN BROWN.. Allmost all the concepts,especially MIND MATTER-relation ship of IONS has been discuused by ancient Indian Sages. (in vedas) In search of god man can ultimately find the answer as "THATHWAM ASI" which means "ITS YOU''..The god you are looking for you is no one else than you...and Human realises his purpose He realises that "AHAM BRAHMASMI" .which means "I AM THE BRAHMA"(Brahma is the name for the ultimate, unchanging reality, composed of pure being and consciousness).
Indian Philosophy does not consider god as a separate , lofty , dictorial , huge superman in heaven whose duty is to pass judgment on human beings and send them to eternal hell or eternal heaven. God dwells in every being . He is the innermost fact of every thing. through inner cultivation man can expand to that reality. When one opens his mind with afire for knowledge , without being biased into personnel bounding, he will eventually make a natural break through in to the higher knowledge of central unity, the supreme self ,the omnipotent one and only one god. ekadāivā.he oneness!! In Indian philosophy , around 33crore demigods are there. But the main principle behind this leads to the ultimate oneness, This central unity in the indefinite diversity is well as highlighted in many hymns in the Vedas and puraanaas. There are many poems which an Indian should daily recite.Now a days the count is reaching zero. Among those poems Sree lalithasahasra naama and Sree visnu sahasra naama (thousands names of divine mother and lord visnu, in a rhythmic composition , each word in this has profound meaning, when repeated daily it activates the slumbering physic and spiritual depth in us) reveals the intellectual depth spiritual vision of the ancient sages. Similar to IONS GCP,In this rhythmic composition of thousand names, is mentioning the names of other deities also. Thus the the central concept is more that it shows diversity in the one harmony, and is revealed in Rig-Veda as Truth is one and the sages call it by different names.rhyming of poems were meant to the harmony of whole world..'Homas' and 'Yagnas' were performed in India and also being held now a days also in some places of india.Through IONS we are getting reasons for what ancestors are done.In this world of religious tension and terrorisms, Irrespect of religion,creed and caste we have to realise the omnipotent.."AHAM BRAHMASMI" I am one....A man can be called in different names among his friends and relatives, ts like wise only we call the one and only one omnipotent in different names Allah , Christ , Krishna etc etc...Whatever you call him , the thing is you have to call it from the heart..
AND THAT GOD IS YOU "THATHWAM ASI"
