Wisdom and Science

Wisdom is full of science. Spirituality has originated from astrology. People mistook that wisdom and science are distinct. But all our ancient Sages and Yogis had scientific knowledge is the truth.


Nine planets were there in astrology namely Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu - South lunar node, Ketu - North lunar node. Sages had built astrological calculations based on these 9 planets.


Amazing truth is that they had complete knowledge on the revolution and speed of revolution of the Sun. Because of this knowledge they had calculated that Sun resides for a month per every Zodiac. And they divided the Zodiacs to 12 from Aries to Pisces.

They predicted the entry of the Sun in the Zodiac Aries and named the Tamil Month as Chithirai. Predicted the entry of the Sun in the Zodiac Taurus and named the Tamil Month as Vaigasi. Predicted the entry of the Sun in the Zodiac Gemini and named the Tamil Month as Aani. They formed the name of the Tamil months based on the entry of the Sun in every Zodiac and it works perfect till date.They have studied the revolution of the Sun and also predicted that the Sun shifts to every Zodiac per month. Their prediction is being accepted by the scientist today.

Yogis have studied the revolution of the Moon and predicted that it takes 2.25 days to shift from one zodiac to another. It is possible to predict it only by knowing the speed of revolution of the Moon. In the same way, they have calculated that it takes 2.25 Years for the Saturn to shift from one zodiac to another. And is also possible to predict it only by knowing the speed of revolution of the Saturn.

Scientists of todays world send satellites to space and calculate these information. And it exactly matches the prediction of our ancient sages. How is it possible? Because our ancestors had scientific knowledge and hence they have predicted the speed and revolution of the planets.

Yogis and Rishis have predicted about soul, rebirth, relationship between planets and human, and also about the climatic change happens in the world. They gave the information about the full moon day, no moon day, climatic changes in the world through their practical experiments. Those calculations are still being and guides the mankind. And they named it as “ Jothidam “ in language Tamil which means “ Astrology “. “ Jothi “ means light and it spreads light to this mankind.

Since these astrological calculations are centred around the planet Sun, it can also be termed as “ Jothidam “ because of the brightness and light of the Sun. From this astrology originated the spirituality. Astrology is the base of spirituality and is an art of science.

In the field of spirituality whats the answer to “ Who Am I? ”. “ This body is myself. Would it be the answer ? ”. No. Why?. Let us take for e,g, a person named Shankar is dead. We say that the body of Shankar is kept here in the freezer box. We refer “ body of Shankar “ here. But where is Shankar? We say that he is dead and passed away.

Now it has been divided 7 days per week and named from Sunday to Saturday. Our ancestors had formulated these based on the speed and revolution of the planets. And they have given name of the planets to the Days and it is being followed world wide till date.

Our ancestors had complete and precise knowledge over these planets and its characteristic even before five thousand years back. They were great in this science and the factors they have mentioned were amazing while we revisit them today.

They have mentioned angels for every planet. Mentioned Lord Shiva is the angel for the Planet Sun, Goddess Parvathi is for the Planet Moon, Lord Muruga to the Planet Mars and Lord Brahma to the Planet Jupiter, Goddess Mahalakshmi to the Planet Venus, Lord Maha Vishnu to the planet Mercury, Lord Saneeswara - Lord Yama to the Planet Saturn.

These names were given in astrological science and they have given these names in co-ordnance with the Planet Sun. These factors are proof that astrology is the base of spirituality. They have framed mythological and moral stories based on these facts.

Rahu and Ketu are the two poles of our living planet Earth. All the planets rotate in one direction but the planets Rahu and Kethu revolves in the opposite direction. It is because of the difference in the revolution of the earth with that of all other planets.Hence the Rahu and Kethu are mentioned in opposite direction in astrology. i.e. Retrograde planets. And they say that Vakra Gathi [ retrograde ] happens because of this backward revolution.

Astrology is the ascendant of Science. Scientist will get amazed if they research on the truths identified by our ancestors. Our ancestors attained this in the ancient period itself. They gave these amazing truths to mankind through the art called astrology. Spirituality is originated from this astrology.

Yogis and Rishis have predicted about soul, rebirth, relationship between planets and human, and also about the climatic change happens in the world. They gave the information about the full moon day, no moon day, climatic changes in the world through their practical experiments. Those calculations are still being and guides the mankind. And they named it as “ Jothidam “ in language Tamil which means “ Astrology “. “ Jothi “ means light and it spreads light to this mankind.

Since these astrological calculations are centred around the planet Sun, it can also be termed as “ Jothidam “ because of the brightness and light of the Sun. From this astrology originated the spirituality. Astrology is the base of spirituality and is an art of science.

In the field of spirituality whats the answer to “ Who Am I? ”. “ This body is myself. Would it be the answer ? ”. No. Why?. Let us take for e,g, a person named Shankar is dead. We say that the body of Shankar is kept here in the freezer box. We refer “ body of Shankar “ here. But where is Shankar? We say that he is dead and passed away.

Here the name Shankar is given to Soul. And once the soul leaves the body, it is called a dead body. So it is proved here that Shankar is distinct from the body. Also we say that Shankar has left and his body is only available here. Hence its evident that the soul is distinct from the body.

So, “ I am a Soul “ is the right answer to the question “ Who Am I? “. Understanding this truth, knowledge and principle is Spirituality. i.e. knowledge about the Soul and principle of soul is called Spiritual. Like there is a father and a mother to our body, Sages did found that God is the father and mother to our soul. Spirituality evolves from this truth.

And our Maharishis have used their body as a laboratory and researched. Our spine has 18 steps in it. Thats why there are 18 steps in the stairs of Lord Ayyappa temples. The kundalini power raises above these 18 steps and finally gets the Dharshan of Light. Thats what called ” Makara Jyothi Dharshan “ in Ayyappan temples. That light is called Lord Ayyappan. So, if we cross these 18 steps of our spine, we can see the light and find our soul. Above all, we can find the Lotus Feet of The Lord.

The Nervous System of our brain in the Crown Chakra is in the shape like that of a Lotus flower. The holy feet of the Lord is over that lotus flower. To reveal this truth only Lord Maha Vishnu has placed his foot over the head of King Mahabali. The Holy feet of the Lord is at, from our forehead to the vertex of head. Hence our sages mentions this truth as, “ Lotus feet of Lord Vishnu lies on the 1008 petals of the Lotus Flower “. Our body itself is the laboratory. Our soul and the holy feet of the Lord lies on our head at Crown Chakra.

Thiruvalluvar has used his own body as a laboratory and united himself to that Lotus feet of God as mentioned in his couplet. He has revealed this truth in the chapter " Praise of God " of Thirukkural.

In the same chapter he says that both the meritorious and demeritorious deeds produce good and bad fruits respectively. And he claims either kind of deeds tainted with darkness would not reach on to those, who have done to the worthy glory of God.

Also he says in another couplet from the chapter " Praise of God " that those who have united with the holy feet of the Lord would swim off the huge ocean of births. Those who don't are the ones who have not  reached out to the Feet of God.

Hence one should put effort to unite with holy feet of the God, and cross the ocean of rebirth and liberate. Should put effort when he/she is alive, not after death. There is common phrase in Tamil, " That almighty in the universe is also in the body “. Hence we all should unite to that almighty in our own body.


There are seven chakras from Root to Crown. Six chakras that goes upwards namely Root [ Mooladharam ], Sacral Chakra [ Swadhistanam ], Solar Plexus Chakra [ Manipuragam ], Heart Chakra [ Anadhagam ], Throat Chakra [Visukthi ], Third Eye Chakra [ Aagina ]. After crossing all these six chakras and if we unite to lotus feet of God at Crown Chakra [ Sahasraram ] can live long says Thiruvalluvar.


Our sages has used this body as laboratory to find this truth. This is science and is spiritual science. Our sages were good in medical science also. The herbs that they discovered have come to us as medicine. So the wisdom is full of science and they both are not distinct. Todays science has come to prove this wisdom and has proved the power of the Omnipresent which exist here, there and everywhere.

Power of god is filled everywhere as electromagnetic waves. Because of the existence of this electromagnetic waves and because of the existence of God, the cell phones that we use work today. Through satellite we gather so many information and all these work because of the power of the god.

The technology we use today do exist already in nature. Only the scientist discovered this power through knowledge and use it. But this energy already exist here. How do scientist come to know that a this energy can be utilised in a way as it works ? Because all the root energy to function any machinery exist here in nature. That natural energy and that nature is "The God”

So, to prove the power of God came this science. Hence the science is the base of wisdom. And its wrong to say that wisdom and science are distinct. We all should understand and realise this truth and and should unite to the holy feet of the Lord.
