Department of Hindu Cognitive Science

The Department of Hindu Cognitive Science at KAILASA’s Nithyananda Hindu University challenges the traditional perception of the mind as a static entity. Here, the mind is understood as a dynamic verb, characterized by its constant activity—fluctuating between past, present, and future. The number of these temporal leaps corresponds to the multitude of thoughts one experiences every moment.

Recognizing the mind as a ‘Mindfield’, this department emphasizes the transformative power of meditation. Research has demonstrated that regular meditation not only enhances the brain’s thickness in areas responsible for awareness, attention, and cognitive processing but also significantly improves emotional well-being.

Combining rigorous intellectual understanding with potent meditation techniques, the department aims to produce instant clarity and integration within the individual. Students are taught how to achieve harmony between the mind’s incessant activity and the stillness that meditation can bring, leading to a balanced cognitive existence.

In essence, the Department of Hindu Cognitive Science offers a unique blend of traditional spiritual techniques and modern scientific research, fostering a deeper understanding of the mind and its mastery for a life of clarity and emotional balance.
