Vedanta on God – Universe Arising from Vibrations of Consciousness (VIDEO – Part 3 of 4)

by Pulkit Mathur, The Spiritual Bee

“Consciousness is the fundamental thing in existence. It is the energy, the motion the movement of consciousness that creates the Universe and all that is in it. The microcosm and the macrocosm are nothing but consciousness arranging itself.” - A quote by Sri Aurobindo.

Sri Aurobindo highlighting the fundamental tenet of Vedanta Philosophy, that it is Consciousness (and NOT matter), which forms the Ultimate reality in the Universe.

Now in Part 2 of this series, we have seen that many eminent scientists such as Stephen Hawking have arrived at the conclusion that there is no spiritual agency, such as God or soul, present in the cosmos. And therefore, these scientists have turned to the domain of matter, to search for the origins of consciousness.

This conclusion of science, from the perspective of India’s Vedanta Philosophy is entirely premature and wrong.

According to Vedanta, not only does God exist, but matter is not the source of consciousness. Instead the truth is completely the opposite! It is consciousness which is the source of matter!

In the video enclosed below, we take a fascinating and detailed look at the scientific position on God and the Universe and compare it with the Vedantic view, which has been arrived at by the ancient sages of India, in the meditative states of expanded super-consciousness.

Part 4: Does Consciousness Arise from Matter? Do Neurons in the Brain Give Rise to Consciousness? Examining the Shortcomings of the Mechanical Model for Consciousness.
