New Book released, a model for academic pursuit

Sri Sathya Sai Books & Publications brought out a new publication recently entitled “Cognition And the Universal Heart”, authored by Dr Klaus G Witz, from Germany.This is a thoroughly research-oriented publication, out of the usual line of books that the Trust has been bringing out so far.

In this path-breaking and insightful work Dr Klaus G Witz makes an in depth academic study of Bhagawan’s words from His direct discourses and the numerous publications over 7 decades. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the author is a full-time academic and has written in a thoroughly logical manner, without, however producing a dense tome.

Dr Klaus G Witz shows how one can approach the categories of “Reality” and “Truth” and these can be related to “Divinity” by one’s own inner experience with what Scientist would call Scientific rigour. He deals with the Very Big Question that everyone encounters like why, how anything is and is knowable, what is death and what comes after etc, and gives satisfactory answers from Bhagawan’s words and his (KGW’s) direct insights.

Born in Breslau and finishing his early education in Ansbach, Germany, Klaus G Witz was educated mostly in the US where he obtained his doctorate in Mathematics in the University of North Carolina. In the early 70’s he turned away from Mathematics to research in Cognition and Consciousness. He has to his credit two important books, Spiritual Aspirations Connected with Mathematics: The Experience of American University students and The Supreme Wisdom of the Upanishads: An Introduction apart from numerous papers in major journals of the world.

Cognitive research is well established as an academic discipline in the major universities of the world.

This volume, result of a decade-long research work, will serve as a source-book and guide for all students, all across the globe taking up academic inquiry into the huge corpus of Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s message to humanity at large.
