“…quantum mechanics, with its limitations in mathematical language, can at best indicate the presence of consciousness, but can neither prove it nor describe it.”

Sripada Bhaktisvarupa Damodara Maharaja

First issue of the Journal of the Bhaktivedanta Institute, Savijnanam - Scientific Exploration for a Spiritual Paradigm. Maharaja is the Editor- in-Chief of the Journal

I shall now declare unto you in full this knowledge, both phenomenal and numinous. This being known, nothing further shall remain for you to know.

Srila Prabhupada desired that an academic journal with a modern scientific perspective of the divine Bhagavata Paradigm be published. Capturing the mood of Srila Prabhupada, the English subtitle, Scientific Exploration for a Spiritual Paradigm has been added.

Maharaja is currently working on a book entitled Origins of Life that will address the mistakes in Darwin’s theory of evolution while providing scientific explanations for accepting the “Life” based Bhagavata Paradigm.


Srila Prabhupada also instructed Maharaja to write a scientific commentary on the Vedanta Sutra, the topmost philosophical treatise of the Vedic literatures. In Los Angeles in 1973, Srila Prabhupada said to Maharaja, “…we can publish this scientific explanation of Vedanta Sutra. You have to explain scientifically that human beings’ only business is to inquire about the Absolute Truth. …You have to prove it logically and scientifically… I will guide you for every sutra.” Maharaja, praying for Srila Prabhupada’s mercy, has very humbly started writing a scientific commentary on the Vedanta Sutra as per Srila Prabhupada’s divine instructions and has presented his commentary on the first verse in his article in Savijnanam.
