कृण्वन्तो विश्वमार्यम्


Vedas say – “devasya pashya kavyam” i.e. behold and correctly study the secrets of the Vedas and the Universe. They are embodiments of God’s excellence. So it’s quite natural that we study creation in the sciences. If it is supported by appropriate logic and right conclusions, it may lead one towards true theism. But we must understand that in modern science there exists no special lesson or chapter treating the subject of God. Therefore, how can we say that God has a place in modern science?

Einstein has said and written about God, and also admitted that the universe is logical and orderly. However, his concept of God was different than the Vedic concept of God as illustrated in brief by Maharshi Dayananda Saraswati in the second principle of the Arya Samaj. For example, Einstein didn’t believe that God supervises the actions of souls and administers justice.

At the same time Einstein was not fully happy or satisfied with his scientific achievements. He was also yearning for the true knowledge of God. I quote below a paragraph in support of this from his famous biography:

Walking with a young woman physicist to his Berlin University office, Einstein spelled out the same task in more detail. He had no interest in learning a new language, nor in food nor in new cloths. "I'm not much with people," he continued, "and I'm not a family man. I want my peace. I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details." (Einstein: The Life & Times, by - Ronald W. Clark, p.37)
