An Interview with Jay Lakhani



Jay Lakhani is a theoretical physicist who has explored the findings at the cutting edge of modern physics to see how they relate to ideas of spirituality within the Hindu tradition.


Please tell us a little about yourself.

I studied Physics at Imperial College and then did Masters in Quantum Physics under Sir Roger Penrose while I was studying Physics my attention was drawn to the esoteric teachings of Hinduism that seem to resonate well with ideas like ‘Big Bang’ (spontaneous creation) and ‘Quantum’ indicating a deeper dimension to reality which is non-physical.

In the web article on science and Hinduism you address the issue of the Human condition. Could you expand on this?

Human beings are trying to come to terms with the world they inhabit. Both the physical world as well as their inner make-up dictates the way they see themselves and behave. This is what we mean by addressing and resolving the Human Condition.
