“If they are based on research why don’t you quote those research papers and Western Research in your articles ..?”
Who decides what level documentation one should do?
अल्पाक्षरमसंदिग्धं सारवद्विश्वतो मुखम् ।
अस्तोभमनवद्यं च सूत्रं सूत्रविदो विदुः ॥
अल्पाक्षरता, असंदिग्धता, साररुप, सामान्य सिद्धांत, निरर्थक शब्द का अभाव, और दोषरहितत्व – ये छे ‘सूत्र’ के लक्षण कहे गये हैं ।
We believe in सूत्र level of documentation. If I really want my student to आत्मसात the subject, I will set him free by giving सूत्र | The real वीर will walk on the guided path (सूत्र) and derive his/her own conclusions based on स्थल, देश, काल!
Set them free! All of your students! Don’t spoon-feed. Don’t ever expect genuine Guru to write thesis for you as modern western science expect from PhD(s).
I share western science papers for two reasons:
1) Border line Indians whom I wish to see living dharma-driven life, understand this language.
2) Like in all times, this time too, soon, we will see western science concluding all what is written as सूत्र in शास्त्र | Esp. in case of medical science.
Nature never writes thesis on Gravity or Quantum physics or other laws but she surely gives potent hints. Similarly, History, time travel in past of Nature, gives us potent hints by whatsoever remains marks on sand of time. Vedas give hints. Gita gives hints. Itihas (Ramayana and Mahabharata) give hints too. They all give hints based on innate nature of universe. It is up to us, to understand them and utilize for creating future or doubt them and ignore.
Asking thesis for hints given by Nature, is like spoon-feeding an adult. Nature doesn’t believe in spoon-feeding.
“Our inner strengths, experiences, and truths cannot be lost, destroyed, or taken away. Every person has an inborn worth and can contribute to the human community. We all can treat one another with dignity and respect, provide opportunities to grow toward our fullest lives and help one another discover and develop our unique gifts. We each deserve this and we all can extend it ”
संशयात्मा विनश्यति ।
He who lacks discrimination, is devoid of faith, and is at the same time possessed by doubt is lost.
Take hints/clues and work to improve your present for better future.
