Shri Kumar Swamiji - His Holiness and Scientific Tests of the Spiritual Powers
On the occasion of the 18th Prabhu Kripa Dukh Nivaran Convention held on 13th – 14th December 2003, in Bangalore, a press conference was organized two days prior to the Convention. There I met the Director of the renowned Vivekananda Research Institute. During discussions he said, “Giving a complete diagnosis of the patient just by looking at the photograph shows the elevated status of Gurudev’s divinity.” He went on to say, “A seminar is being organized in the Institute on 18th December. The topic to be discussed is, Science & Spirituality.” He also told us that several sicentists and intellectual personalities would participate in the Seminar. They want to invite Gurudev for the Seminar, and this would enable a scientific analysis of his divine abilities, the results of which would be put forward to the panel of scientists and other intellectuals in the Seminar.” When I discussed the proposal with Gurudev, He responded positively.
On 17th December, Gurudev along with a few volunteers reached Vivekananda Institute. Scientific analysis of Gurudevji began in several scientific laboratories like Revoked Potential, Metabolic Analyzer etc. Gurudev was requested to attain a highly elevated spiritual state of mind in meditation.
Gurudev’s body was connected to several machines. The results and analysis of the experiments were continuously under the acutely focused scrutiny and mental scanner of several scientists. After some time, the scientists were surprised to see that, Gurudev’s heart was beating at a normal pace, but the breathing rate was below normal. His mind had achieved an extreme state of sensitivity. This led one of the scientists to make a declaration which shocked everyone. “Gurndevji has left his body,” he stated confidently.
Scientists started to check the pulse rate of Gurudev. It was missing, or non-existent! They increased the sensitivity of their machines, but in vain. They could still not detect any pulse. After a lapse of some time, Shri kumar swamiji came back into a normal state of being, of his own accord. His pulse returned to normal, once again.
With the results of Revoked Potential, scientists concluded that Gurudev’s mind works at a greater speed than a normal human being’s mind. And during meditation, the sensitivity of Gurudev’s mind reached a state of inexplicable elevation. His power and ability to grasp was innumerable times higher than that of any normal human being.
After all the proceedings of the experiments came to an end, scientists concluded, “We have done these sensitive experiments on many spiritual Gurus. But undoubtedly, the experiments done on Gurudev can be witnessed only once in a lifetime. Descriptions about saints can be read in holy books and scriptures. It is indeed surprising, yet very heartening to know, saints like Gurudev still exist in this world”.
