My inference is that many of our Upanishads have been written understanding this law of nature. In this article, I try to map Einstien and Sankara.
For example, I always used to wonder at Newton’s third law, which states that ‘for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction’. This law I believe does not operate only in the realms of mechanics, but also in many other spheres, including our life. I link this to Krishna’s theory of deeds and fruits of deeds.
My current ranting is about a relationship that I have been thinking of for quite a long time, which is about the law of E=mc2, which is well known in a particular way.
Anyway, radioactivity is not my rant now. Everyone knows this equation can also be equated to what Sankara said several thousand years back. He said Jeevatma and Paramatma are one and the same.
Paramatma = Jeevatma * C2.
We can also relate E=mc2 with life and death. This is also a well-known concept.
Radiating Jeevatma to become Paramatma
The difference between energy and mass is dynamism. Energy is dynamic. Mass is static. Energy moves at the velocity of light. It is radiated. When energy stops its movements and condenses, it becomes mass. When mass starts radiating, it becomes energy.
Jeevatma and paramatma are separated by this nature of radiation. While paramata radiates, jeevatma does not. But if Jeevatma starts radiating, it can become paramatma.
Radiate. Radiate what you consider as your mass. If your mass is money, radiate it. If your mass is love, radiate it. If your mass is knowledge, radiate it. Radiate and create higher intelligent beings. Like the Sun that radiates and creates us, radiate and create more intelligent beings. Become one with the Paramatma.
Thoughts expressed here may not be in line with thoughts of Swami Jagadatmananda of Sri Ramakrishna Math. While Swamiji is a true expert scholar, I am a novice and has expressed what occurs to me, like a blind man describing an elephant.
