Question: Research in Spirituality
I want to do research in spirituality. What steps should I follow?
Answer: The Ultimate Scientific Experiment
Carefully read the Bhagavad-gita As It Is and scientifically experiment with it by carefully following its teachings making your own consciousness the object of the experiment. Then after thorough experiment and observation you may draw your scientific conclusions regarding what is amazing process of Krishna consciousness.
The essential items for your scientific experiment are that you should chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day without fail while keeping the test tube of your consciousness pure by strictly avoiding illicit sex, meat eating, intoxication, and gambling. You should also restrict your diet to only taking Krishna prasadam (vegetarian foodstuffs offered to Lord Krishna with love and devotion). I can assure you that if you will strictly perform this experiment for at least six months, you will have many profound scientific realizations. So I wish you the very best and encourage you to take this experiment up wholeheartedly.
