What are some lesser known facts about spirituality?

To be spiritual, one must know the spiritual self. Spirituality is a science of self-realization that must be learned from an authorized teacher.

In modern science the object of study is matter and nothing else. One observes and studies matter in its endless variations and fluctuations.

In the spiritual science, consciousness is the object of study - one studies the influence of matter on the consciousness and the mind. So in the spiritual science consciousness is the object of investigation. One does not limit one's studies to that which is outside of oneself.

That's why the spiritual science is superior to material science. Material science is not sufficient to describe and understand the reality we live in.

Why? Because none of the natural sciences have anything sensible to say about our conscious experience of the world. Science tells us only about matter, it says nothing about our experience of matter. And it is our awareness of the world which is the most fundamental aspect of the reality we live in.

Also, science is very limited in it’s application. In fact, the only thing science is good for is to manufacture technology. It cannot help us to better understand the world and our place in it.

"Science is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us. It cannot tell us about red and blue, bitter and sweet, beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously." --Erwin Schrodinger, a Nobel prize winning physicist

Only the spiritual science can help us understand the self and its relation to the world and God.

Therefore Krishna says:

Of all creations I am the beginning and the end and also the middle, O Arjuna. Of all sciences I am the spiritual science of the self, and among logicians I am the conclusive truth. (Bg 10.33)

Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self -realized souls can impart knowledge unto you because they have seen the truth. (Bg. 4.34)

Having obtained real knowledge from a self-realized soul, you will never fall again into such illusion, for by this knowledge you will see that all living beings are but part of the Supreme, or, in other words, that they are Mine. (Bg. 4.35)

Even if you are considered to be the most sinful of all sinners, when you are situated in the boat of transcendental knowledge you will be able to cross over the ocean of miseries. (Bg. 4.36)

As a blazing fire turns firewood to ashes, O Arjuna, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities. (Bg. 4.37)

In this world, there is nothing so sublime and pure as transcendental knowledge. Such knowledge is the mature fruit of all mysticism. And one who has become accomplished in the practice of devotional service enjoys this knowledge within himself in due course of time. (Bg. 4.38)

A faithful man who is dedicated to transcendental knowledge and who subdues his senses is eligible to achieve such knowledge, and having achieved it he quickly attains the supreme spiritual peace. (Bg. 4.39)

But ignorant and faithless persons who doubt the revealed scriptures do not attain God consciousness; they fall down. For the doubting soul there is happiness neither in this world nor in the next. (Bg. 4.40)
