TU Event 101:

Brahman and Quantum Physics

Mysterious Intersections between
Ancient Hindu Wisdom and Modern Science

Dr. Mani Bhaumik
Los Angeles, California

GAINES THEATRE at the Freeman Center, Christopher Newport University

*** Free and Open to the Public ***

(PARKING: Upon entering the CNU main entrance, drive straight going beyond the roundabout to the library; at the "T", make a right turn, then make the next left; park anywhere. The Freeman Center is next to the parking lot on the right. Come a few minutes early to secure your seat)

Modern cosmology and quantum field theory have brought us the stunning discovery that the abstract primary source of everything in this universe is surprisingly ingrained in each minutest stitch of the fabric of space of this immensely vast cosmos, thereby upholding and administering its fundamental aspects. Our ever changing physical reality is a direct manifestation of the timeless source. Vedas and Upanishads of Indic tradition also tell us that the abstract Brahman is the creator and the physical universe is the creation. The creator Brahman is always present everywhere and in everything. The same quantum physics, which runs our cell phone, computer and Internet, is amazingly revealing that the fundamental nature of reality described in the Vedas and Upanishads is firmly anchored in modern science. What could be its implication for our lives?

Dr. Mani Bhaumik and his colleagues demonstrated the first efficient operation of the type of laser that made possible the immensely popular Lasik eye surgery. In recognition of his pioneering research on lasers, he was elected by his peers as a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers as well as of the American Physical Society. Dr. Bhaumik's current interest is in sharing with the public the astounding advances in quantum physics and cosmology and their implications for our lives, work, technology, and spiritual development.
