One of Sanjay’s outstanding contributions to the study of yoga, spirituality, and science – and yoga’s connection with our deepest inner Self – is the unique publication of his exciting findings in three highly reputed, mainstream, international, peer-reviewed, and professional scientific journals. [1]

This overturns the criticism of skeptics that spiritual research is not robust enough to be worthy of publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

In academia there is a maxim: “Publish or perish.” It means getting a PhD or writing a university book is not always enough. If your research is truly valid, unbiased, and newsworthy it should get published in a peer-reviewed or other professional journal.

Patel’s groundbreaking findings have met this highest standard.

His research presents evidence that ancient Indian yoga sages (yogis) had authentic knowledge of submerged deep-sea volcanoes and hydrothermal vents thousands of years ago, well before scientists could learn about them. 

This is because hydrothermal vents are hidden 1.5 miles beneath the ocean surface. Scientists discovered them only in 1977 when they used the state-of-the-art research sub Alvin to dive to the seabed.

So how did the ancient yogis acquire their astounding knowledge of the submerged vents?

What’s In It?

⇒ Sanjay’s 30 years of meticulous research, consultations with leading scientists, and 10 years of extraordinary findings condensed into a few remarkable pages.

⇒ Its publication in three mainstream, international, peer-reviewed science journals – the gold standard of academic research. 

⇒ It is the only work of its kind to get published in such high ranking journals!

⇒ Findings presented before scientists at the 22nd International Congress of History of Science, July 2005, where it was warmly received.

⇒ Powerful evidence of a real relationship between yoga, science, and spirituality.
