The Absolute Truth: A Lecture by Swami Mukundananda

On October 26, 2010

Leading  a provocative approach to science and spirituality, Swami Mukundananda, a renowed spiritual teacher and founder of the system of Jagadguru Kripalu Yog from India, held a captive audience during his lecture Wednesday, October 13 in the Golden Eagles room at Northeastern Illinois University. His overall message of "the absolute truth" formed a basis of considering and connecting science and spirituality through the context that they are "both branches of knowledge."

Mukundananda gave revelations about the discourse between science and spirituality by drawing inferences that, "with absolute truth, there is a creator," rather than the scientific approach of "the big bang theory" where "we are all stardust."

   During the almost one hour and a half presentation allowed Mukundananda  formulated a progression of philosophy from the past to the present, including western and eastern thought. He talked about the works of Socrates to Descartes, the teachings of the Verdas, and Upanishads, the philosophies of religions and "isms"  in order to support that all knowledge allows for "creation to be released and abolished from the hand of one creator".  

Mukundananda's quest was about "awakening hundreds of seekers of absolute truth" through the use of logic, science and personal experience, was about allow others to find answers through the system of Jagadguru Kripalu Yog which "incorporates both material and spiritual knowledge for the complete physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual health of humankind".
