Krishna and Darwin - a
tale of two very different geniuses
How Charles Darwin made
monkeys out of us all
his epoch making book ‘The Origin of the Species’, Charles Darwin, a 19th
Century British naturalist, dared to ask the ultimate question which
traditionally religion alone had sought to answer -
is the origin of mankind and what is the biological basis of our existence?
answer was very erudite and packed with evidence to support his theories of
‘Evolution by Random Mutation’ and ‘Natural Selection.’
scientific community eventually bought into his ideas, and at the dawn of the
3rd millennium his work still remains a firm body of accepted scientific
resulting effect on society however has been on the one hand enlightening, but
on the other hand catastrophic as to its impact on the global civilization as a
whole. If man was accepted to be just another animal with no pre-eminence in the
cosmic design, then the only way to live was surely selfishly, and without
any regard for one's fellow man and woman - simply to ‘make hay while
the sun shines.’
a perspective of course paves the way for all manner of world dominators and
dictators, and gives carte blanche to all the criminals, torturers and
psychopaths to do as they please, with no heaven to seek nor hell to fear as a
fortunately for us all, Darwin was wrong.
Darwin's grave error
- the godless universe
Darwin's theory explained much, based as it was on his idea of ‘mutation by
random chance’, there was one problem with exactly how this evolution itself
was accomplished which remains to this day. The core of the matter is that no
scientist nor mathematician has ever been able to define just what this so
called ‘random element’ is.
good English dictionary defines random as ‘without aim, purpose or
principle.’ So if we translate Darwin's theory into common English,
understandable by anybody of average intelligence, it is actually saying
‘evolution happens by random chance, which means - we don't know how it
happens, or why it happens since we don't know what randomness is.’
Krishna however, Albert Einstein and others of a religious persuasion might well
describe this so called ‘random element’ as ‘God’, or ‘the Cosmic
Darwin was right about green beetles surviving in a grassy environment, and red
ones getting seen and eaten by the birds, but he had no real understanding of
how evolutionary mutation took place or indeed why evolution should take place
Einstein commented on the concept of randomness as related to Max
Planck's Quantum Mechanics, which sought to explain the behavior of
sub atomic particles, and therefore reality itself, with his
God does not play dice.’
Krishna - a true scientist for the new age
Darwin studied animals to arrive at his conclusions. But as Alexander Pope said
‘the proper study of mankind is man.’
And this is
where our friend Mr Krishna scored the points over Mr Darwin.
was a great scientist also, yet a scientist whose laboratory was not one of
Bunsen burners and test tubes. Instead, the arena of his research was his own
body and mind. (SEE HIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY: Kundalini - The Evolutionary Energy in
Man, Shambhala publishers, 1997)
Gopi Krishna's field of research was principally that of human consciousness,
one's own body and mind is the only possible arena of study. Of course this does
not discount the need for the support of conventional academic research, which
it was always Gopi Krishna's aim to promote. Yet his study was true science none
the less, carefully observed and rationally concluded.
Krishna's conclusions unlike Darwin's were of hope and great joy: -
is directed by a super-intelligent force which operates through a biological
mechanism in the human body known to yoga theory as ‘kundalini’, and by many
other names in a wide variety of ancient and esoteric texts.
including human evolution, is therefore not ‘random’, but a deliberate act
on the part of an invisible cosmic intelligence or organizing power and has a

of evolution is to produce a virtual superman or woman who will live in a
permanent state of bliss, possess a genius level of intelligence, and various
other attributes seldom seen in the population at large such as psychic powers.

kundalini mechanism is a biological mechanism, given a properly conducted
research program based on a serious scientific study of a group of suitable
candidates, it should be possible to measure the biological and intellectual
changes using suitable tests and equipment.
existence of the kundalini mechanism explains the origin of the religious
impulse in man, and therefore heals the schism between science and religion.
Lasting Significance of Gopi Krishna's Works
Krishna's discovery was without doubt the most important discovery in scientific
history. Why? Because it revealed the source and destiny of man.
Put In one
sentence, Gopi Krishna discovered a biological mechanism in his body, known to
yoga theory as ‘kundalini’, which over a period of years entirely
transformed his consciousness, raised him mentally to the level of a genius, and
took him to a permanent state of ecstasy.
But in a
world of doubting scientists, who lacked his inner experience, of what
significance could this have to the rest of us?
Krishna's answer was in over 15 books and many talks world wide, to groups of
scientists and laymen alike, with the intent of permanently raising our global
consciousness to the next stage of human evolution.
studies his works seriously and with an open mind, will see a genuine vision of
man's future, only clearly visible to a man in such a higher state. Yet enough
will filter down to the average reader which will enable him to see the
meaningless and illusory rift between science and religion, which has been at
the core of social and political unrest throughout the last millennium.
