Fundamental principle of Vedas

 Cosmos as a human body:

In the previous page we mentioned that the Rishi's probed deep inner and found the cosmic secrets. They said that the human body is a miniature of the cosmos.  Hence, the Vedic Scientists (Rishi's)  proclaimed

                                       "Yatha Pindae , Thatha Brahmandae"

 "As is the Micro-cosm (human body) so is the Macro-cosm (Universe)".

This Sanskrit verse means that this Universe is like this body and vice versa. This means that all the laws that govern this human body also governs the laws of Universe. Our human body is just a micro-cosm of the Macro-cosm.

Now what is surprising is that the Modern scientist have re-searched and found this fact as true. Click at this beautiful work of National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. about The Universe Within. This will help us understand the Vedic Statement  As is the Micro-cosm (human body) so is the Macro-Cosm (Universe). (Do not miss to see the above link and see the beautiful representation).

       What they have shown is the pictures of the milkway, universe, planets, Earth, finally a tree in Florida, its cell, its nucleues, it atom, its subatomic particle etc. Each picture is actually an image of something that is 10 times bigger or smaller than the one preceding or following it. The number that appears on the lower right just below each image is the size of the object in the picture. On the lower left is the same number written in powers of ten, or exponential notation. Exponential notation is a convenient way for scientists to write very large or very small numbers. For example, compare the size of the Earth to the size of a plant cell, which is a trillion times smaller:

Earth = 12.76 x 10+6 = 12,760,000 meters wide
(12.76 million meters)

Plant Cell = 12.76 x 10-6 = 0.00001276 meters wide
(12.76 millionths of a meter)

Knowing Body and Mind of Human helps knowing universe and its creation.

This is the logical approach of Rishi's to know about  the mystery of the Universe. By studying the human body they understood the physical characteristics of the Universe and by knowing the mind of the human body they understood how creation occurred. 

To summarize, the Rishi's  studied the body and mind of the human and discovered the mysteries of the cosmic body or Universe. What they found is that the physical nature of human body is similar to the physical characteristics of the universe and the Human mind and the events occurring in the Universe are also similar. Among these two facts, the fact the physical body is similar to the Cosmic physical nature is proved by modern scientists also (See the above work of Florida University).

  It may take some more years for Modern science to prove the other fact that the mind of human is the same as cosmic events. Now let us go deeper what technology the Rishi's used to probe into the mystery of the Universe and human existence.
