Material and Spiritual Science

A principal of a college, Niranjan Singh requested that Baba give a special message for students. Baba directed Eruch to read out the message “Material and Spiritual Science” that he dictated at 7:45 A.M.:

Just as God is infinite, imagination is also infinite, and all that has come out of imagination, which is called the shadow of God, and that imagination is also infinite. We can imagine anything and everything ad infinitum.

Science, as is understood today, deals with energy and matter. This material science is in the domain of the mind. There is also spiritual science, which deals with the beyond-mind state. Material science and spiritual science both yield proofs and demonstrations. Material science brings results through intellect, spiritual science through love. When love is experienced fully, the source of the spiritual science, God the Infinite is realized and then all else is found to be just illusionary phenomena.

Spiritual science, being based on love alone and being beyond the systematic mental understanding, is full of apparent ups and downs and contradictions and vagaries, which love alone can face and overcome. This is because material science enhances the ego-life, whereas spiritual science annihilates it.
