Deep similarities & congruity between Veda & Scientology
Scientology is the most advanced phenomenon that LRH evolved from Dianetics. The word Scientology literally means “the study of truth.” It comes from the Latin word “scio” meaning “knowing in the fullest sense of the word” and the Greek word “logos” meaning “study of.”
Scientology is the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life. The Scientology religion comprises a body of knowledge extending from certain fundamental truths. Prime among these:
Man is an immortal, spiritual being. His experience extends well beyond a single lifetime. His capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized — and those capabilities can be realized. He is able to not only solve his own problems, accomplish his goals and gain lasting happiness, but also achieve new, higher states of awareness and ability.
In Scientology no one is asked to accept anything as belief or on faith. That which is true for you is what you have observed to be true. An individual discovers for himself that Scientology works by personally applying its principles and observing or experiencing results.
Through Scientology, people all over the world are achieving the long-sought goal of true spiritual release and freedom.
The deep similarities & congruity between Veda & Scientology:
Any subject in the beginning starts as a philosophy, grows into a science and finally transforms into a technology – for it to be used by human. In the Philosophical area – Veda & Scientology appear identical to an observer – as both Veda & Scientology confirm the same fundamental truth that – a human is essentially a spiritual being – and thus the basic “foundation” of both the philosophies can be seen to be absolutely same.
“Krishna” gives the definition through the descriptive attributes for a “Soul” as – weapons cannot harm it – fire cannot burn it – water cannot wet it – air cannot dry it – it is neither born nor will die – it is eternal which will keep changing its form (body-vehicle) to have a new one every time, like people change their dress to get a new one. Human is qualitatively identical to God, but chooses to be quantitatively very small – essentially through his own thoughts & actions (Karma Theory).
LRH defines Life (Soul or Spirit) as a – “Static that has no mass, no energy, no wavelength, no location in space & time – but has the ability to consider & postulate”.
This above definition of LRH obviously implies the ability to create & uncreate.
Veda defines God through descriptions such as – formless – totally free of any physical attributes what so ever – omnipotent – omniscient – omnipresent – that which exists in, before and beyond time – that which can create, sustain, destroy any thing any where at any time at will – and hence indefinable in an easily comprehensible language.
Even though the language appears different between Veda & Scientology (which is inevitable as Veda was written in Sanskrit very long ago & Scientology is written in English comparatively very recently) – the seed truth & tree of objectives are identical. The means may appear different but ends are clearly & unmistakably same.
Ayurveda is that part of Veda which is the most ancient health science man had ever known. Ayurveda defines human health as the harmonized body metabolism supported by pleasant & stable mind. The primary treatment for good health (functional ability) in Ayurveda is “Panchakarma” –ie- 5 methods of detoxification of the human body.
Scientology (Clear Body Clear Mind) has a parallel regimen of purification to detoxify the body to advance to a stable state of health. Thus both Veda & Scientology insist on detoxification as an essential need for attaining & maintaining good health.
The principles of “Ashtaanga Yoga” (8-stage realization of truth) authored by the ancient sage and Vedic scholar “Pathanjali” find their unmistakable reflections – though indirect & subtle – in Scientology (The Dynamics of Life – 8 dynamics).
Similarly Puraanas (Indian mythology) finds innumerable reflections in various books of Scientology as well as several science fictions authored by LRH.
