Traditional Oriental Philosophy, based on the knowledge acquired by so-called saints and seers (persons endowed with profound moral and spiritual insight) has been considered to be incompatible with modern Western Science, which is based on logic and proof. In this lecture, I will show that the world views of the two sciences can relate to each other, i.e., that they are two different ways of getting to the top of the same mountain: realization of the Truth.
