The Mystic Vision: A Rational Approach to Spirituality
"The Mystic Vision" offers a compelling exploration of spirituality for those seeking a science-based and rational approach. Dr. Bhagwandas P. Lathi, an esteemed professor in electrical engineering, applies his insightful acumen to unravel abstract spiritual concepts. The book bridges the gap between science and mysticism, demonstrating how they address the same issues from different perspectives – science in the conscious domain and mysticism in the superconscious domain.
Today, many have turned away from traditional religions and have more regard for science, and are more open to a spirituality that's science- and experience-based, rational, and in harmony with common sense. Could mysticism, with its underlying humanistic philosophy of Oneness, be what they are looking for? The answer is a big yes, as science and mysticism address the same issue from different ends—science addresses the issue in the conscious domain while mysticism addresses it in the superconscious domain. In The Mystic Vision, the two ends meet.
Professor Emeritus Dr. Bhagwandas P. Lathi, who has time and again demonstrated intuitive explanations to clarify the physical meaning and significance of mathematical results through his nine highly popular textbooks in electrical engineering, applies this very same remarkable acumen to abstract spiritual concepts in The Mystic Vision, triggering in readers a vivid and clear understanding of complex spiritual concepts.
This book also dissects some dysfunctional aspects of traditional religions, particularly the prophet-centric ones, which have resulted in much suffering, and elucidates how the mystic-based Eastern traditions are in contrast to the former and are more focused and effective in bringing peace and harmony to the individual and to the world. It is said that the function of a good book is not so much to cover topics as it is to uncover them for readers. The Mystic Vision lends that vision to readers. This book is an eye-opener.
