SARP

SARP is an acronym for Science, Art, Religion and Philosophy which are considered as the four major and mighty achievements of the collective human mind right from the dawn of civilization.

Science is concerned with the exploration, discovery and comprehension of the universe without. Religion deals with a path of inquiry to explore, discover and understand the universe within. Art is a spontaneous expression of elegant excellence erupting from the depths of consciousness, bridging the gulf between different levels of the sates of consciousness. Philosophy, as a way of life, is the means through which dynamic equilibrium is created and sustained between the universe within and the universe without.

Thus Science, Art, Religion and Philosophy are more a means of acquisition of knowledge and to explore the path of Truth. They are not unquestionable absolutes, by any standards,, but relative to their utility to weed out questionable home truths and plant a seed for answerable truths.

SARP

Religion gives extraordinary explanations to ordinary events. Science gives ordinary explanations to extraordinary events. Art makes the ordinary look extraordinary. Philosophy makes the distinction between the ordinary and the extraordinary.

SARP

While oriental wisdom produced all the great living Religions, science is a fortuitous occidental accident. In fact, science is the product of the spirit of modern Philosophy which itself is born as a consequence of opposition to and rejection of religious oppression, scholastic tyranny, meaningless mysticism and obscure occultism. Religion is older than philosophy and a contemporary of primitive art. Philosophy flourished only after language found a dependable alphabet and grammar.

    Dear Deena kumar,
    Read your article with interest.It is an oxymoron to say god created m ankind while man has created god. It is a chicken an d egg situation. Whatever it is, religion has tried to upkeep the morality of the society. It always taught love as the basis of human existence.and as God has supposed to have created man in his own image,religion embodied values . unfortunately, these values are not practical to most men in their present circumstances. So the religion has spurned its own anti religions of atheism and agnosticism which are easy to practice. It is like the cat closing its eyes and imagining thaat the world disappeared.
    the great philosophers all debated on the existence,purpose,origin of life and after life(?).To be a practical philosopher, one has to remember the basi c principles of life, respect , love and understanding of others As one Nun has prayed,”
    Lord grant me
    the grace to accept things that I cannot change ,
    courage to change them when I can ,
    and wisdom to know the difference.”
    this I believe is the need of the hour.
    All the best,
    Love
    Raghav.

  4. “I do not know whether Life itself has gone on a wrong track or not, but the pursuit of knowledge seems to have jumped on to the fast track of instant gratification.” this what Ii tell people all the time that we are in time of instant coffee and two minute noodles where do the web designer know art which you have described as creative skills. what is art ???/ modern art or Renaissance period or it the Ajantha Elora caves which one is art, same with religion, philosophy or science .

    I have no words to explain them simply I need to learn more i have always been in pursuit of knowledge and have no qualification to comment however i always liked to learn and become better I love art, philosophy and religion and science to some extent. The article touches a raw nerve for me as i had the same belief and could articulate as Mr Deen Kumar has put it for me. It makes sense and gave me clarity.

    thank you, for me the article became a stimulant like the old time coffee brewed and drank fresh.
