H.H.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was the key note speaker at the centenary celebrations of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore on May 25.
His talk spanned a wide range of subjects: from ancient Indian scriptures to the theory of relativity. In response to a question on scientific research,
Sri Sri said: “When love for science is intense, it is already moving the world. The ultimate aim of a researcher is not to earn a livelihood.
If the main aim of a researcher is to earn a livelihood it is not best quality research. It has to lead to a soul-search. Research is to know. The joy of knowing is itself the goal. Getting recognition is immaterial.”
