|Prem Spirituality Model - An Intro|
This article is an introduction to my paper presented at the
8th International Conference on "Sustainable and Human Development
Through Spirituality, Peace Economics and Peace Science" on 6th April,
2018 at Hotel Le Meridian at Bangalore, India. The paper has been published
in International Journal of Exclusive Management Research, June 2018.
The world has progressed by leaps and bounds in the last few years.
Development in science has revolutionalised the way we live and work.
What led to this sporadic growth of scientific inventions were the developments
in physical science. More precisely, it was the development of mathematics which
led to opening of the floodgates. Mathematics provided a language to express
and document the physical laws of universe, which were then used to our
advantage to automate activities which were earlier done manually or were
not even possible manually, like flying in sky (Fig. 1)
The figure above plots the growth path of studies in spirituality and physical sciences over time. The red line shows how spiritual knowledge grew over time and the blue line indicates the growth of physical sciences. The initial spurt in the red line indicates that in the early stage of human history, the knowledge of spirituality was more advanced than knowledge of physical science. After the advent of mathematics, physical science has grown by leaps and bounds surpassing spiritual knowledge, whereas spiritual pursuit has stagnated, or actually declined.
Why is it that the growth of spiritual knowledge has not been as sporadic as that in physical science?
Before mathematics and physics, all physical phenomena like rain, wind, lightening, eclipse, days and nights were believed to be creations of god. Everything that was not understood was supposed to be creations of god. Mathematics and physics explained some of these physical phenomena and freed them from the realm of religion and god. The language of mathematics which worked wonders in physical sciences failed miserably to explain the spiritual phenomena like happiness or misery, success or failure and destiny. Hence, while the physical phenomena exited the realm of god and religion and entered the realm of scientific enquiry, Spiritual phenomena remained in the hands of god.
Prem believes that Spiritual knowledge can multiply only through scientific pursuit.. Mathematics and physics brought the Industrial and Information revolution. The next big revolution will be the Spiritual Revolution, provided there is scientific research on spirituality.
Prem Spirituality ModelTMPrem has proposed a model, called "Prem Spirituality Model" which can help hasten the Spiritual Revolution through scientific pursuit. "Prem" here stands for "Love", ("Prem" means love in Hindi language), as Love is an important constituent of this model.
Prem Spirituality Model will help take spirituality to the path of scientific research. There is a need for a language like mathematics. The model will open the doors to the definition of a new mathematical language for spirituality, which Prem calls "Mentomatics" (Click on this link or Google on "Mentomatics" to know more). Once Mentomatics is developed, it will open the floodgates to scientific development of Spirituality. Spiritual Science will zoom just as physical sciences zoomed after the discovery of mathematics. Spiritual Science will help to understand the spiritual laws of the universe and lead to inventions like we experienced in physical science.
Most importantly, religion will also be mentomatically explained and the world will no longer be divided by religions.
The Model is discussed in more details in this paper which was presented in an international conference on Spirituality. The paper is limited to using the Prem Spirituality Model to define Spirituality, explain the possible meaning of enlightenment and to introduce the concept of Mentomatics. My ebook titled God in Two Minutes (downloadable at Amazon) provides further advanced reading. The book builds on "Prem Spirituality Model" to explain the origin of God and Religion, how the "method of god and religion" works for spiritual and mental upliftment, but at the same time the method has had a serious side effect - the world today is seriously divided by religion.
The book uses the model to explain the pitfalls of this faith-based method. There is an inherent flaw in the method which has resulted into not only a big religious divide, but also violence and bloodshed in the name of religion. It is said that the number of deaths due to religious strife is more than the deaths due to all natural calamities put together. Prem Spirituality Model can help bridge this religious divide and usher in the spiritual revolution.
The ebook God in Two Minutes elaborates on concepts not covered or briefly touched upon in this paper like "marriage of convenience between the concept of God and the concept of Religion", Mentomatics, Spiritual Science as a superset of Physical and Quantum science, etc. The book peeps into what the world will look like with Mentomatics. For instance, temples may be replaced by Spiritual Clinics where you may get prescription how to raise your spiritual state, a prescription to reach a particular height in the spiritual space! Sounds ridiculous, impossible and unthinkable, right? Just as the ancient man would have to 'think of the unthinkable' to imagine today's inventions of the industrial revolution, today we have to 'think the unthinkable' to imagine the possibilities of post Spiritual Revolution era.
Further ReadingYou can read the full article on "Prem Spirituality Model" based on a paper submitted at an international conference on spirituality at this link. My ebook God in Two Minutes (downloadable at Amazon) builds on this model to explore the possible origin of religion/concept of god, and envisions a world without religions post the Spiritual Revolution - a revolution driven by scientific study of Spirituality. Spiritual Revolution will bring all religions under one umbrella of spirituality, with "scientifically" explained, documented and repeatable common Laws of Spiritual Science.
