Science And Spirituality
With a post graduate in Mathematics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Khurshed Batliwala, or “Bawa” as he is fondly known (a nick name that has stuck from his IIT days) is an extraordinary personality.
In his own words, he decided “it was better to teach people meditation and make them happy rather than teach them mathematics and make them miserable” and thus chose the unconventional and challenging career path as a faculty member of the Art of Living, sharing the vision of it’s founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, which is to see a smile on every face on the planet.
I came across his Ted Talk and find his cheerful, clear enlightening presentation both inspiring and delightful.
His talks on maths are great too ( wish I had had him as my maths teacher).
Those of you who like my 'science ' posts will love his Ted Talk All About Om
