Science of Spiritual Biology


The main focus of this seminar is to understand the scientific evidence from 21st century biology that disprove Darwinian objective evolution of bodies and the material origin of life – ‘abiogenesis’. Furthermore, the speakers will also highlight how the 21st century biology confirms that every living entity including unicellular organisms display cognitive behavior and hence confirms the ancient wisdom of SrimadBagavad-Gita that ‘Life requires cognition at all levels’.


The speakers, Bhakti NiskamaShanta, Ph.D. (Gen. Secretary, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Institute, Siliguri, WB, India) and Bhakti Vijnana Muni, Ph.D. (President, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Institute, Siliguri, WB, India) are holding doctoral degree in Ocean Engineering and Chemical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, WB, India. Both of them are traveling Sanyasis and are actively spreading the Sanatana Dharma in a scientific language in several prominent universities and scientific organizations under the guidance of their Siksha Gurudev Sripad Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja, Ph.D. (Serving Director of Bhakti Vedanta Institute, Princeton, NJ, USA).
