The understanding of consciousness among the scientific community is at a very nascent stage. The advancement of neuro science has provided some hope of conducting a scientific study of consciousness. However, due to lack of an appropriate approach so far there has been no breaking on the fundamental questions on either origin or nature of consciousness. The contention is that whether the brain gives rise to consciousness or it is a fundamental than matter itself. Or does the existence of matter and consciousness is parallel, means, the matter exists alongside consciousness. At some point of time, matter and consciousness interact and give rise to activities - force and action.
Vedic literature has a lot to provide on this. A systematic study of Vedic literature on this content might provide a way to formulate a solvable problem on consciousness study. Therefore, the way forward would be to synthesize the scientific approach with that of the Vedic wisdom. We hope to explore this direction to address the problem of consciousness.
