Jignasa

Ask a Question

athato brahma jijnasa - "Now one should inquire about Brahman - The absolute truth, the transcendental, spiritual nature". It is when we ask the relevant questions which relate to our true identity to pursue human life qualitatively.

Who am I? Where do I come from? What is suffering? Where am I going? Who is God and what is nature? What is my relation with God and Nature? Why do we follow certain rituals? Are there any scientific reasons behind it? Or are we blindly following just because we are being told to do as a follower of Hinduism?

‘Tadviddhi Pranipaatena Pariprashnena Sevaya,
Upadekshyanti Te Gnyanam Gnyaninastattwadarshinah’

(Gita chapter 4, v 34)

Pariprashna in Sanskrit means ‘Unceasing Quest’, unfolding perspectives and through this forum we have made an honest endeavor to collate and delve deep into the law and mysteries of Nature by raising penetrating questions at every step and approaching the subject of study from all possible view-points.
