Law of Conservation of Energy


Radhekrishna to all the readers.

We will continue our article on the law of conservation of energy in this article. All of you must be curious to know the explanation of the diagram, which was presented in the last article. Your curiosity ends here because we present that explanation in this article.

Coming to the explanation of the diagram.

(Please refer our diagram from the last article)

‘m’ represents the mass of body.(dead body). We call it as body mass index (b.m.i).

In the diagram, ‘A’ represents the starting point and ‘B’ represents the ending point.

A = New born baby B = Death

V--- represents the path from A to B. (birth to death)

---V represents the path from B to A. (death to Rebirth)

Thus the cycle of birth and death continues.

If v represents soul i.e. source of all energy, then it should have some dependency over m (mass) i.e. the body.

According to Hinduism, the soul is represented as ‘JYOTHI SWAROOPAM’ (LIGHT FORM). The soul disappears from one body and reappears in another body.

Now come to E = mc².

m= mass ‘m’ represents the mass of dead body.

C² = velocity of light.

The ‘JYOTHI SWAROOPAM’ (soul) moves from one body to another. The cycle of birth and death continues. This moving of the soul from one body to another body corresponds to the scientific term of energy transfer. In Hinduism this movement of the soul is defined as ‘Samasara’. Literally it means leading one’s life, one birth after the other continuously. And since the number of births that one undergoes is countless; till one attains salvation (moksha), this goes on. Thus concept of energy transfer can very well account for the “SAMSARA” concept.

Hence it is said that avoid the Samasara Sagara and attain moksha i.e. avoid the continuous and repetitive cycle of birth and death by attaining salvation. This is only the real purpose of human life. This has always been propogated in Hinduism. Because samasara is like an ocean (sagara). It has no limits. If one wants to escape from the samsara sagara the only way out is to make use of this birth of a human being by doing continuous chanting of the 'radhekrishna namam' to attain moksha.

So dear readers, don’t you feel that the scientific laws have been already described in Hinduism since time immemorial? Yes its very true! There is no doubt about it.

We will continue to explain the spiritual explanations prevailing in the scientific laws, but for that wait till our next article.

Till then radhekrishna to all of you!

Law of Conservation of Energy


Dear Readers,

Radhekrishna! In the last article, we presented you an illustrative example with scientific and spiritual reasoning as to what is the importance of going to a temple and worshipping the idol of God. It seems so fascinating isn’t it? To be frank nobody has this thinking when one goes to a temple that by doing so he would be receiving immensely powerful positive radiations from the idol that he/she is worshipping!! One scales the steps of a temple when he/she is in trouble!! Otherwise who bothers to even think about God?

There is a feeling that whatever good is happening is happening because of our own efforts and whatever bad is happening is a result of God’s wrath and his merciless nature!!

What logic is this? Unconceivable isn’t it? But it is to be remembered that whatever is happening with us is the best for us and it is happening only because of His wish.

Coming to our this weeks article, its not a continuation of our last article. This time we are presenting before you a topic on which there have been articles written previously on our blog. That topic is the ‘Law of Conservation of Energy’. We bring you a spiritual explanation of Einstein’s formula E=mc2 and explanations related to this law with a spiritual reasoning’s.

Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed. Energy disappearing in one form reappears in another.

The above is the law pertaining to energy.

The same verse is explained in Hinduism, through the word Athma (soul). The soul can neither be created, nor destroyed. The soul disappearing in one form reappears in another form.

Hinduism lays a strong foundation onto the concept of rebirth. According to Hinduism, every human being has to take many births. At one point of time, the soul attains salvation. Our body is decomposable. But the inner soul remains immortal. The body functions through some source of energy. We absorb energy from outside sources (remember our last article on idols which are a source of energy?). The energy is stored in the body. The energy stored in the body helps in bodily movements. The body changes from the state of child to the state of oldness. Finally the body becomes dead. In Hinduism, death is treated as transfer of energy. The soul (energy) disappears from one body. This disappearance is treated as death, in the worldly context. The soul enters into another body. It reappears in the form of a newborn child. This is treated as birth. So the cycle of birth and death continues on and on.

Energy disappearing from one form

(The soul leaving the body)

=> Death

Energy reappearing in another form

(The soul entering a new body)

=> Birth

The second chapter of Gita emphasizes on this concept of the immortal nature of the soul and the mortal nature of the body. It says as follows:

The soul cannot be destroyed. It cannot be destroyed by weapons or be burnt by fire. It cannot be drowned by water, nor can it be dried in air. It cannot be vaporized. The source of energy remains absolute and cannot be destroyed. This absolute form of energy is described as immortal soul.

The body is non-living. The soul represents the source of life. The scientific law says:

E = mc², where ‘m’ represents mass. ‘c²’ represents velocity of light.

The energy depends on two variables namely mass and velocity of light.

Take a look at the diagram below:


We will continue with the explanation of this diagram in the next article.

Till then Radhekrishna!
