Our scriptural texts teach that there is a *jīva* in every life form, be it
a plant, a worm or a human. Numerous knotty, *jīva-*related questions arise
when a planarian (a flatworm), which has a remarkable ability to
regenerate, grafted plants, cloning of animals, embryo-splitting, natural
and artificial human conception, etc., are considered. These are spelt out and
answered in the light of the scripture in Chapter 1 of this book.

In the next chapter, hypothesized links between the findings of science
about the cosmos and what the scriptures have said, early Indian
contributions in the fields of mathematics, medicine, and engineering, and
the traditional resolution of any discordance between some Vedic statements
and what is known by other means are taken up.

The pervasive impact of the human brain on the mind and consciousness as
known from the data on brain damage, electrical stimulation, drugs,
split-brain surgery, etc., is detailed in Chapter 4 and it is shown in
depth that all such data can be accommodated within the framework of the
scripture’s words about the mind and consciousness.

Chapter 5 has some information about light, relativity, and quantum
mechanics and how the scriptural teaching about causality is unchallenged
by quantum interactions.

Every scriptural explanation of H.H. Jagadguru Śrī Abhinava Vidyātīrtha
Mahāsvāmin, the 35th Shankaracharya of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham, a
great *yogin, *a* jīvan-mukta*, and an undisputed authority on
*Advaita-vedānta*, is precise, clear, and traditional. The reigning 36th
Shankaracharya of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham, H.H. Jagadguru Śrī
Mahāsvāmin, has blessed this book with a *śrīmukha *(benedictory message).
