Vedic Cosmology Seminar 2

ISKCON Philadelphia - July 2, 1986 / (062)

The second lecture of the Vedic cosmology series examines the structural details of Bhu-mandala. Whereas modern astronomy seeks confirmation through testable empirical models, Thompson suggests that the sages described in the Srimad Bhagavatam rather regarded the totality of the universe as inconceivable, and thus cannot be restricted to so-called natural methodology. This suggests they recognized that a meaningful cosmic analysis, out of necessity, would exceed the standard limitations of human empiricism.
