Abstract

The 'happiness' appears as sole purpose of all human development activities, is the combination of comfort at physical and mental level both. Science and Spirituality are main guiding streams to provide comfort at physical and mental level respectively. But a gap is observed on the level of awareness about the concepts of each other's areas between scholars of both streams. In order to achieve the same goal easily, it is necessary that the means of acquiring it will move forward with the help of mutual understanding and take advantage of each other's concepts. For that, this paper deals with the study of similarity between two most important and basic concepts from science and spirituality. The concepts are ‘Neutral Axis’ from applied science and 'Sthitprgyata' (steady wisdom) from Spiritual field which is a very significant aspect of Gita. The neutral axis which is studied through the compression and tension developed during the external load condition in a simply supported beam and the state of Sthitpragyata described through the concepts of Raga (attachment) and Dwesha (aversion), occurred during the different circumstances in human mind, have been explained well in Patanjali Yoga Sutra and Gita. There are some very interesting factors of similarity are observed in these concepts and their establishing elements also, which may help and encourage the scholars of both streams to understand the theories and concepts of the each other.
