SCIENCE AND NONDUALITY Anthology Vol. 3

Another groundbreaking collection of conversations with leading scientists, contemporary mystics, authors and teachers. Science and Nonduality Anthology Volume 3 takes you on a journey into the most compelling questions of our time, ranging from the mystery of time, emotions, evolution to awakening.

Some of these questions include:
What is time? Is awakening a state? Does the experience of time only exist in relation to the separate self? In the awakening process, is there something that the ‘I’ has to achieve? What is the function of our emotions? When do emotions become psychological suffering? What is acceptance? How are the nondual teachings evolving? Is there a universal “now”? Is the next Buddha, the community? What is enlightenment in the traditions of Zen, Christianity and Judaism? Who are you?

These questions and many more are explored in this latest 3-DVD set containing 18 unique conversations. Each interview is a self-standing segment presenting the essence of the dialogues while taking the viewer into a space beyond the questions and answers themselves. This material does not require you to adopt any particular perspective or subscribe to any school of thought. We simply ask you to follow your curiosity, watch with an open mind and invite in new insights and possibilities. What drove these interviews is the longing to truly know who we are. Remember there is no prescribed path that you need to follow and no final destination.

Is there such a thing as enlightenment?

Happiness is our true nature – Francis Lucille

This is an excerpt from the interview with Francis Lucille at the Science and Nonduality Conference 2011 featured in the 3DVD set “Science and Nonduality Anthology Vol.3”.

Francis Lucille is a spiritual teacher of the tradition of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality). He became a disciple of Jean Klein, a French Advaita teacher whom he met in 1975. This was the beginning of a close association that lasted until the death of his friend and spiritual master in 1998. http://www.francislucille.com/

The Symphony of Time

A musical celebration of the concept of Time.

Featuring Dean Radin, Robert Lanza, Maurizio Benazzo, Alan Watts, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox,

THE SYMPHONY OF TIME (lyrics)
Our experience of time is an illusion; there is no clock out there in the world.
No Clock, keeping time!
No Clock, out there in the world!
Space and time are tools of our understanding.
Time is just a concept, an illusion, a construct of the mind.
The concept of the time, creates what we call the self.
What is the I without time?
The only reason for time to exist is so everything does not happen at once.
Your mind has the capacity to put this together and add to what’s going on.
Time is like a super glue keeping our story in order while we navigate the world around us.
While we navigate the world around us!
Science says that’s space and time are these whole external objects.
What we need to do is readjust the way of thinking.
The concept of time creates what we call the self, what is the I without time?
The concept of time, creates what we call the self, what is the I without time?
For all human beings time is a matter of extraordinary importance and perhaps this is one of the principle ways in which we differ from animals.
Time drives every second of our lives in ways we can scarcely imagine.
Is one of the greatest mysteries in all of nature!
It’s time that makes us uniquely human and it’s knitted into the fabric of our being.
Time is also intimate. It comes from within.
From the journey of the Sun to the atomic clocks, we can accurately track the passing of time.
But what is time?
Did time have a beginning or has it always been. This is truly the unknown!
What time is it?
It’s not even straight forward as you might think.
What time is it?
It’s a problem that’s confounded us to these day.
Our perception of time can change, time can speed up, time can slow down.
Time is just a concept, an illusion, a construct of the mind.
The concept of time, creates what we call the self, what is the I without time?
The concept of the time, creates what we call the self, what is the I without time?
Time is like a super glue keeping our story in order while we navigate the world around us.
While we navigate the world around us!

Vedic Astrology New Moon in Virgo

The Sun and Moon will come together in Virgo Friday Night at approx. 7:30 PM Eastern Time. When the Sun and Moon join it initiates a new cycle. In this case, it is the cycle of Virgo.

Virgo is the feminine, reflective nature of Mercury. It is where we recognize all of the details, then seek to organize them in the best way according to what they are and what they represent. This means we need to be flexible as new information comes our way, and as we get more information about the category where it belongs.

Virgo is an Earth sign, which means this detailed, Mercury energy needs to be organized internally in a practical and structured way, if it is going to benefit us. Because “practical and structured” is an Earth trait.

Hasta Nakshatra
Hasta means “hand”. It is the section of Virgo related to “hands on” practical work. This New Moon falling in the Nakshatra of the hand shows this is to be a time when we seek to manifest what we desire. The challenge in this is to stay detached from the results of our labor – both the inner and outer results.

The ego is the most attached to our actions. That is why karma means “action”, but it really means “attachment to the results of our actions”. Because as lord Krishna instructs “inaction is impossible” (Karma / the actions must happen) – but we need to give up the results of the karmas.

Bhagavad Gita
Chapter 2 v.47

karmaṇy evādhikāras te
mā phaleṣu kadācanavirgo
mā karma-phala-hetur bhūr
mā te sańgo ‘stv akarmaṇi

“You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.”

Chapter 2 v.48
yoga-sthaḥ kuru karmāṇi
sańgaḿ tyaktvā dhanañjaya
siddhy-asiddhyoḥ samo bhūtvā
samatvaḿ yoga ucyate

“Perform your duty equipoised, O Arjuna, abandoning all attachment to success or failure. Such equanimity is called yoga.”

Stellium in Libra
There is still a lot of energy concentrated on the Libra area of life. This will affect relationships and other scenarios that require compromise. Mercury, the ruler of the New Moon, in Libra, so close to saturn, shows how communications are feeling so bottled up right now.

Venus in Scorpio
Relating has just become much more intense, as Venus entered Sidereal Scorpio on October 1. There may be a lot of intensity and vulnerability, turned into passion in the next few weeks.

Mars in Leo
This could also spell a big change form the last month or so, as Mars was debilitated and feeling like de-clawed pussycat. Now, Mars in Leo is like the general is sitting on the throne – and general’s like war.

Jupiter in Gemini Aspecting Libra Stellium
There is still grace flowing and higher communication possible with the Jupiter aspect. Yet, we may see things working out for the next few months, as Jupiter goes forward and retrograde over these points in the sky.

Tamasic – Durga / Kali –
Rajasic – Laxshmiyoutube-9night

The Navratri celebration is symbolic of how life evolves and how we must overcome darkness in order to embrace the light.

First we must destroy fear, anger and darkness (Tamasic).
Then once darkness is destroyed peace and love settle into our heart.
Finally, only after peace and love settles into our can we actually receive a good teaching.
Before we are purified by this process, all of our enjoyments and teachings will be mixed with pain, attachment (Tamas) and selfishness (Rajasic).

The first of the three nights – mantras to Durga.
Om Dum Durgayaia Namaha

The second of the three nights – mantra to Lakshmi.
Om hrim Mahalakshmyai Namaha

The third of the three nights – mantra to Sarasawati.

Spiritual Wisdom: An Evolutionary Insight by Ramesh Malhotra


The most important aspect of our existence is that every living thing is subject to two forms of evolutionary trends. One is physical, which deals with the investigation of nature by means of science and technology. The other is spiritual, which requires an investigation of nature through perceptive power, commonly achieved through meditative practices. In Spiritual Wisdom, author Ramesh Malhotra explores the evolution of the attainment of spiritual knowledge and inner tranquility and peace.

Through practical examples of how to apply these spiritual principles to everyday life, he provides insight into the four tenets of eternal wisdom: mythological wisdom, inspirational wisdom, transcendental wisdom, and absolute truth. He provides an overview of the history of spiritual wisdom, the elements of lower and higher knowledge, and the process of self-revitalization. Providing an in-depth investigation and discussion of the spiritual knowledge and guidance found within the Bhagavad Gita, Malhotra encourages further exploration of spiritual wisdom and enlightenment in order to bring peace, tranquility, and happiness to every life journey.

Ramesh Malhotra was born in India and immigrated to the United States in 1968 to continue his postgraduate studies. He manages the Malhotra Group, an organization consisting of more than six different business enterprises covering energy trading, manufacturing, marketing and distribution, and specialty products and technologies. He currently lives in Ohio; this is his first book.
