SACRED HISTORY for July 28th
1979 Adi Da Samraj Writes the Essay “Method and Ritual”, which is later published in Scientific Proof of the Existence of God Will Soon Be Announced By the White House!
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Writes:
“Both ‘religion’ and science are forms of popular, or conventional, ‘knowledge’, except where each leads beyond its own presumptions into the esoteric and transcendental realms of Truth. ‘Religion’ makes profound use of the ‘method’ of ritual, or the repetition of what has previously been found to be auspicious and revealing. But science makes equally profound use of the ritual of ‘method’, which is also the repetition of what has previously been found to be auspicious and revealing.
The ‘method’ of ‘religion’ is to repeat prescribed (‘external’ or ‘internal’) rituals of action and attention, until there is a deep psychic encounter with the un-‘known’.
The ritual of science is to repeat prescribed (‘external’ or ‘internal’) ‘methods’ of action and attention, until there is a conscious mental encounter with the un-‘known’.
Therefore, both ‘religion’ and science pursue the ‘experiential knowledge’ of the un-‘known’. ‘Religious’ ritual is the science of the right hemisphere of the human brain (or the holistic faculty of intuition). Scientific ‘method’ is the ‘religion’ of the left hemisphere of the human brain (or the analytical faculty of comprehension).
Both ‘religion’ and science are motivated by the absence of ‘Perfect Knowledge’.
Both ‘religion’ and science are founded upon the urge to transcend the present-time limitations of the human body-mind-complex. ‘Religion’ cannot do what science is intended to do, because ‘religion’ is not fundamentally oriented toward the mental analysis of the ‘world’ of conditionally manifested ‘phenomena’. Science cannot do what ‘religion’ is intended to do, because science is not fundamentally oriented toward psychic unity with the ‘world’ of conditionally manifested ‘phenomena’.
Therefore, a complete, or truly human, culture would be both ‘religious’ and scientific in the highest and most universal sense of each discipline. And the transcending of egoity is also beyond the conventional ‘methods’ and rituals of both ‘religion’ and science, even as both hemispheres of the brain must be transcended if the mind is to be transparent to the Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Reality in Which the ‘world’ of conditionally manifested ‘phenomena’ is arising.” ~The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
