Empiricism – The method of scientific research is based on sense perception and experiment called empiricism. Our life in the universe is programmed for material sense experience. Sense perception can only take place in a vessel accommodating the processing of opposite values: hot and cold, light and dark, good and evil. These dualistic observations are interpreted by the subject in three different conditions, or modes of material nature (ignorance, passion, knowledge). First, all observation is individual. This is a selfevident fact. Second, all observation is relative. This is caused by the three modes of material nature. The qualities 'individual' and 'relative' indicate, that all sensorial observation is subjective and differentiated, in any way opposite to objective and uniform.
Objectivity and uniformity, however, are claimed to be the standard criteria prescribed for the results of modern
scientific research, since science should be precise, objective, value free (excluding ethics and morality on a practical level) and experiments should be universally repeatable. But as you will understand now, objectivity and uniformity are nonexistent in the Cartesian scientific disciplines, since the conditioned vessels of undisciplined scientists are in ignorance of the transcendental stages of consciousness beyond duality. This is crucial. In the mainstream academia, there are hardly any scholars, who are disciplined in transcendental knowledge or truth beyond dualism, except perhaps for monism ('I AM God'). The conclusion must therefore be, that modern
scientific renditions of reality are highly particular and not universal, at all.
Although the non-dualistic platforms of nirvisesa-brahmavada and maya-vada may be highly atheistic conceptions similar to modern science, they contain objectivity and uniformity at least, contrary to modern sciences.
God's opulences veiled – In their unalloyed love, the inhabitants (vrajavasis) of Vraja are in no way aware of Krishna as Supreme Lord possessing unlimited opulences: complete power, complete strength, complete wealth, complete knowledge, complete beauty and complete renunciation. Nanda Baba, in the pastime of Govardhana Hill, possesses the rasa of parental love (vatsalya-rasa). The vrajavasis consider Krishna their son, their friend, or lover, who performs magical feats, who kills demons disguised as animals, who rescues River Yamuna from deadly poison, and who lifts up Govardhana Hill to protect the cows and the vrajavasis against the horrendous thunderstorm sent by Indra, King of the Heavenly Planets.
Since antiquity (Rg-veda), King Indra had been worshipped by those, who aim for a cage with golden shackles in Heaven instead of leaden ones on Earth. Indra was furious, when Krishna hijacked his festival by redirecting the worship of masses of people from subtle material Heaven to transcendental Govardhana, at the age of seven. Krishna had suggested his father to honor Govardhana Hill instead of Indra. Since his father loves him dearly, Nanda Baba followed his advise conscientiously. Out of anger and jealousy, Indra sent a torrent of rain for seven days in an attempt to drown Vrndavana. Krishna protected the vrajavasis and the cows against Indra's Climategate by lifting up Govardhana Hill like an umbrella, for seven days. Krishna's action was very smart, because the worship of matter is a miserable waste of time and transcendental consciousness is a joy for ever. By redirecting a mass of people from matter to spirit, Krishna liberated their souls ensnared in material nature endlessly recycling in a prison of permanent war and soul migration. When an amazed neighbor asked Nanda Baba, "Is Krishna God?" Nanda Baba replied, "No, no, he's my son!" ×
