Why Hinduism is scientific ?

Editorial Team, Asia

BBC produced one documentary on Jesus Christ, it claims Jesus spent  many years in India learning eastern philosophy. Buddha was grown up in Hindu culture. Later on he propounded new theory around eastern philosophy and practicality of life and human sorrow. Historician says  Einstein had deep knowledge of Veda and Geeta. Hinduism is  the most  ancient philosophy of  human civilization.

We can find many scientific intuitions and experiments in  hindu ritual and practices. Though, western thinkers accuse Hinduism as a rigid, hard liner and conservative religion. Bishwo Kranti baba argues ‘Hinduism is the prime philosophy of all religion. Jesus, prophet Muhammad, Buddha, Socrates or Einstein; they all  were influenced by eastern thinking  and later on they erased few flaws, untimely  errors to develop their theories.’ He agrees to the point that Hinduism is little conservative in matter of caste, rituals  and gender but is  strongly determined to break deadlock of flaws and bad practices. The eastern  philosophy  has deep  insights to spirituality and worldly matters, as the concept of aeroplane ‘puspabiman’ is mentioned in Veda  centuries ago Wright Brothers inventehindu-_nd it.

There are many day to day hindu practices which shares close scientific correlation. The practicality and scientific reasoning to them has proved eastern civilization as the initiator of human development.
