1.2 Interest of Scientists in Spirituality
Indian Spirituality is one of the most massive, most basic, and scientifically most justifiable parts of Spiritual knowledge that is available to the world.
There have been many top level western scientists interested in Vedanta. For example, Schrodinger (one of the founders of Quantum Mechanics) was a Vedantist. So was Bohm, another important leader in the field who did joint work with J. Krishnamurti. Of course, Fritjof Capra created a revolution by his work 'The Tao of Physics', wherein he drew parallels between scientific truths and eastern spirituality. Indeed, a large number of brilliant authors both from the East and the West have tried to connect Science and Spirituality in general.
