01:27- Ancient Indians were aware that the sun and the moon are approximately 108 times their respective diameters from the earth

I rushed to my library, pulled down my Rigveda, and looked at the organization in terms of the number of hymns. In each book, there are 10 mandalas or 10 books, and then I found that there was a code associated with that and that code reflects the knowledge that the authors of the hymns, the rishis, or the sages were aware of the fact that the sun and the moon are 108 times their respective diameters away from the earth.  The very central idea of the Vedas is as above, so below. As in the cosmos,  so within us.

06:05- How is the global community reacting to the work that you are doing?

I think the answer is consciousness science. The best in the west are aware that this is where India is going to show the way. We’re not talking ritual etc. because that’s the way of connecting with your own self.  The very heart of the Vedas is consciousness science.

14:00- What is the synergy you see between Indian science, yoga, and art?

Yoga is the joining of the mind and consciousness. In the western tradition, everyone talks about their mind. In the Indian tradition, you have manus which is an instrument. In the western tradition, the word mind is often taken to stand both for consciousness and for the instrument where judgments are made. While in the Indian tradition there is a distinction, the mind has an ego or ahamkara and chitta which is a memory bank, and buddhi which is judgment.
