As the "distribution lecturer" from the once cult film "Carnival Night" said: "Is there life on Mars, is there life on Mars - this is unknown to science." 66 years ago, when the Eldar Ryazanov took off his famous tape, any other answer would not give a synod academics. And what does today's science say, and not only about the Red Planet? If you ask the question a bit, are there other residences of life in the Universe?

While studying about the roots of Indian philosophy and mathematics, I found that many philosophers consider the Vaisesika sutras of Kanada as the earliest exposition of `physics' (although I disagree personally as far as the terminology is concerned). Therefore, I am curious know if somebody has tried to write down the sutras, which were written in Sanskrit words, in terms of mathematics.

Answer
The logician-philosopher Graham Priest, in the course of his work on Buddhist logic, broaches logical and scientific issues and concepts discussed by Hindu Nyāya and Vaisesika philosophers; those philosophers were apparently familiar with one another's work. Some of Priest's writings on paraconsistent logic could presumably be applied in your area of interest.

I am working on paper on infinity and I have problems with "PURNA". Is the situation similar vwith the Greek APEIRON? And what about Egyptian god HEH? Do you know some good paper or book?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Peter!
Below you can see a translation from Hebrew to English:
You can found more precize explanation in Kabbalah books.
"Infinitity of the light"  is  very interesting: A light exists in  every place ("Electromagnetic & Gravitation fields !!! "). I found this in Hebrew.
Between the end [edit source | edit]
Center of Kabbalah as it appears in the Zohar is a secret one and knowledge of Divinity, or "Reza Dmhimnota" (Aramaic, "The secret of faith"). God's image that emerges through this system is totally different from any other source in Judaism - This is an abstract figure and noble and will detail a sophisticated system in the world, counts and tools through which she revealed noble, originating disappeared. This source is called "Endless" (SA).
By "the Zohar" Tishby and brochures, endless examining disappear twofold: first, qualities not reflected outside the scope disappearing and does not participate in the creation process; Secondly, nature is not conceived and not achievable at all.
Since his knowledge of human mental abilities conditional, and let him talk and relate only to what he could get and understand, concludes the reception that the Hidden God, no end is impossible to tell, and we can tell him absolutely nothing. Man can achieve only as a form of Divine revelation and to the extent the world, which revealed knowledge of the ways of God and the recognition of the borders of attainment are intertwined. Man turns to God as the Divine that can achieve, so God is revealed. Zohar hardly refers to the unknown God, and he is mentioned only as a single, unique to him: "There is no end." This name first appeared in the circle of Rabbi Isaac the Blind Ben Ra'avad and his students were active in the twelfth century and early thirteenth century in Provence and Spain. It should be noted that the term "endless" appeared even earlier, the book made it clear - there is not presented yet as a noun but order of the adverb: "This idea that you think endless and purpose" [7] - and the Bible - as part of the description of the wonders of God's actions "does grow and no exploration, no wonders until the number" [8].

Specifically, how does organizational culture work as a value system in Indian higher education? Looking at the level of the individual organisation, I'm interested in the 'complex reality of the university as an organisation possessing its own structures, cultures and practices' (Fumasoli and Stensaker, 2013). Unit of 'analysis' being the single college or university.
Please come forth with views on the value systems from academics, managers and administrators on 'the content and practices of teaching or the inner life of research' in the Indian context.
Or else, perhaps you can direct me to publications which were grounded in participant observation or ethnography.

@ Suresh, well said.
There is an online Indian Journal OMNISCIENCE which was targeted to publish articles relevant to the theme similar to this question, why not write a interesting for common man treatise on Bhagavad-gita is role on university education,
@ Usha, Assimilation of Value system of past into present has not been really transformed in the HOLEAN way? Is it an aftermath of a large adulteration of poverty and power with the perception of raising a great quality of life without marching input of work?
I do feel " basic cultural ethos of centuries old  yet evolving culture... does affect our today's value systems in higher education... but much in bad way" When I preached the.." values of our seers [that] are as relevant today as they were in ancient times.".. I had limited success, because there would be somebody teaching the opposite. Thus there is a need to make a concerted effort by all seniors involved in the education process.  I would wait to see how learned professor Vijay Pereira views it through his forthcoming book, and whether he provides any worthwhile "Ram Ban" to help the direction setting @Indian methodology/ system.

In the Bhagavad-gita the last instruction is to surrender fully unto Him, the author of the Bhagavad-gita, but unfortunate men of demonic mentality misunderstood the teachings of Bhagavad-gita as a method of sophistry and therefore the same Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna in the garb of a transcendental devotee preaches the same techniques of Bhagavad-gita in a demonstrative way.
The method of His demonstration was also very suitable. He inaugurated the sankirtana movement accompanied with melodious song which has been found practically very effective amongst the masses. It is not possible for the masses to study the Vedanta or to undergo the difficult mystic processes in the Kali-yuga when the general populous is indolent, unfortunate, short-lived and always disturbed by physical and mental tribulations. The general mass of people are fallen in the estimation of the great saints, and for them Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the only hope for deliverance.

The Bhagvad geeta is true essence of indian philosophy but to me i do not want to restrict bhagvad geeta only under indian philosophy as it has an universal applicability based on TRUTH ,RELIGION ,PEACE ,& LOVE .
Bhagvad Geeta has its roots thousand yrs back & only after which incarnation of  Gautam Buddha ,Mahavir Swami ,Prohpet Paigambar saheb ,Jesus Christ ,have stepped up & when the main end of establishing ,religion ,peace & harmony among the respective sect of religion ,have also follow the basic essence of the philosophy of Bhagvad Geeta .
Bhagvad Geeta is nothing but the applicable message of entire humanity & in one for in another mode human beings have accepted the philosophy of Bhagvad Geeta .

That is, is the title to be read as 'Self-rule for India'(Hind, a foreign Persian and Arab name for the country beyond the Indus, a colonial state ruled from outside, though Gandhi rejected both the idea of a 'state' and also foreign rule)... or as a more abstract and perhaps philosophical 'Indian version of autonomy' from individual up through (or 'out to') all the intersecting and nested groups which constitute 'Indian' society and identity?

Richa - thanks again.  You've answered my second question, and maybe the first, which was simply about grammar. I'll try and find a native speaker to clarify the grammatical case of Hind in 'Hind Swaraj'.  From what you say it seems that it may be a genitive.

there is an interesting story about MAHARASTRIAN [ A STATE IN INDIA] culture here with me to share.in 12th century saint named JNANESHVAR OR JNANADEV rejuvenated the spiritual pilgrimage within mahaRshtra. people from all over maharashtra now from all over world start their pilgrimage from two places of maharashtra till PANDHARPUR in maha. only. this is journey without any vehicle yes i mean by walking these group of the people complete150 kilometers. almost 24 days this goes on. it is a wonder how these peole are fed, and how all other services are provided to them. secondly they not only walk but also dance,play music, and lot of other fun is also there. they experience a complete pleasure. this tradition attracts persons from all walks of the life.
jnaneshvar who is the one pioneer of this tradition wrote a extreme erudite commentary on BHAGVDGITA at his age of 16, named J NANESHVARY. It is also considered on of the best commenatary on geeta BY SCHOLARS LIke r. d. ranade. jnaneshvary is a leap ahead of SHANKAGITABHASHYA. One should go through the highly logical and philosophical agrumentative style of jnaneshvar.
i beg the attention to it especially of my foreign friends that how philosophy is deeply penetrated in to indian culture.

Indian philosophy is the over all existence for human body which has no restriction for any cast ,creed,& religion.
This philosophy has an universal enigma based on Truth,Religion ,Peace & Love .This philosophy rests with basic foundation of our soul ,within every human being of the world ,our soul never end & never dies which after our departure on this earth collects the repository fruits of our action  positive & negative making root cause of our life to come.
Which sort of our life our body gets & which mode they play the part in their life is fully dependent on their action ,the resulting fruits of which are not  in their hand .
To establish the living cultural course in the universal & to place ,a worthy atmospheric effect of vibration & in certain respect of ''AURAS'' creating the present of almighty God under the message ''GOD IS LOVE -LOVE IS GOD'' 
This can be certainly establish throu the power of prayer ,Meditation ,& religious cause of conduct  for the human beings.
I believe we all have taken with the overall grace of god & divinity within us .It is this forces & basic power of energy which may help us to make the world as an unique forum for the entire people to live .
In an holy silent peaceful & lovingly environment .

At present I'm trying to write a paper aiming at a philosophical apporach to Indian philosophy. The focus is on Nyāya school (not Nāvya-Nyāya!!) and the fundamental question that constitutes the core subject is: "what's Indian philosophy?". In order to trace a consistent answer, I'm taking inspiration in Dilthey's "Das Wesen der Philosophie", where he writes the essence of philosophy lies in ἐπιστήμη and ἔθος (the knowledge being both valid for/in itself and functional for ethics). The risk to avoid is mere/bare comparison: the discussion should keep itself very far from barren parallels between East and West like "here we say this, there they say that", or "this is similar to that, this is not". The task is essentially philosophical (τὸ τί ἐστι!!), namely, to apply philosophical categories/strategies in order to put in evidence the philosophical side of Nyāya.
Any idea, suggestion, further readings?
