Sri Sri Sankaracharya Speaks – An Exclusive Interview By Sri A.S.Raman – August 18, 1963 – Illustrated Weekly – Part 6


Q.: What will be according to Your Holiness, the impact of the recent spectacular achievements of science on man’s faith in religion?


H.H.:
 Science and spirituality are coming closer together. Today the scientist maintains that all matter can be reduced to energy which I call Parasakti. He thus finds himself unconsciously in the company of Advaitins. His conviction that energy is the absolute power despite the multiplicity of its manifestations such as heat, electricity, and so on is bound to lead him to Sankara’s religio-philosophy. The perceiver—that is, the soul—and the perceivable will eventually become one. Science in its destructive aspect is of course a different matter.
