Description

The modern scientific age places tremendous importance on expanding our knowledge about the world. Our desire to search beyond the limitations of human senses has brought about an exponential growth in sophisticated instruments. There seems to be an intuitive recognition, even among scientists, of a vast, immeasurable potential hidden in the depths of nature.

Vedanta states that this vastness is, in fact, to be discovered in the subjective depths of every human being. This zenith of evolution is found through the process of Self-discovery.

How does one begin the process of Self-discovery? Our educational institutions provide us with masses of external data. Vedanta points out that the search for happiness and knowledge outside denies the fullness of our own being. Vedanta coaxes us to delve within. The problem, process, and culmination of Self-discovery is lucidly described by the many authors in this issue.
