This post is a sequel to my post Advanced Thoughts  Advanced Modern Concepts, which explores the present Advanced thoughts in Astronomy,Physic,Biology,Space and Time and Weaponry among other things.

Nyaya System of Indian Philosophy

Nyaya System

The thought that is making waves at present is the attempt at CERN to discover, isolate the God Particle,Higgs Boson.

Two attempts have been made with results as confusing as the jargon of the Scientists.

I have posted a couple of posts on this, one at the first attempt saying that the experiment would flop as it is an impossibility because of Space Time continuum.

It happened that way with Scientists claiming that it was a success, but could not find the particle.

At the second attempt, it was announced that the experiment was a success and there is a likelihood of a third particle involving Boson!

I had said of this on another post.

I am not a Scientist, nor do I possess an adequate knowledge of the fundamentals of Science.

Some of my readers askde me to provide more information on the subject.

I am posting some information on the subject based on my study of the Vedas and the Systems of Indian Philosophy.

None of the thoughts being mentioned are mine but from Indian Philosophy.

In India, contrary to what many think, including the Hindus, Indian Philosophy is much more  than the Vedas”it includes systems of thoughts which deny the authenticity of the Vedas(Curiously these systems end up with results not very different from the Vedas) like Jainism,Buddhism,Charvaka,Nyaya, Vaisheshika, Sankhya and Yoga, this and many more subsystems of these thoughts constitute Indian Philosophy and Thought,

Now I shall limit myself o the topic in question, the Atomic Theory, in Hinduism and Modern Physics.

The current Modern Atomic Theory postulates,

1.Atoms are divisible into further finer parts like Electrons,Protons and Neutrons.

2.These particles have a corresponding particles with opposite charges, like Electrons with Positive Charge,Protons with Negative Charge and these might constitute Anti Matter.

2.There is Dark Energy being emitted in Space.

3.Known Matter in Space is only less than One percent,the other being, probably anti matter.

4.There is a Particle called God Particle, called Boson.

Now let us see what the Nyaya System of Indian Philosophy states on this subject.

Nyaya system is called heterodox for it does not  believe in the Authority of the Veda.

It always goes with another system ,called Vaisheshika, which is renowned for its Atomic Theory, while Nyaya is known for its logical system which is yet to be surpassed even by Logical Positivism ,propounded by Bertrand Russel,

What does Nyaya Say on Atoms?

  1. Please note that the Nyaya system of Indian philosophy is not Heterodox as commented in this article. This article says that Nyaya system is called heterodox for it does not believe in the Authority of the Veda. This is absolutely wrong. Both Vaisheshika and Nyaya systems are the Astika systems of Indian philosophy since they believe in the authority of the Veda.


    • You are right in the broadest sense.But to be specific and going into details there are differences in these systems from the Vedas.It is purely technical issue.In a general post as the one is question I should have refrained from posting this information.I shall be dealing on the sytsems of Indian Philosophy in detail in a little while.

      For more on this subject please refer pages, 18,39 and 85 of The Essentials Indian Philosophy by Professor Hiriyanna and book on Indian Philosophy by Das Gupta under relevant chapters.( I recall the name as Systems of Indian Philosophy)
      Thank you for pointing out this and Regards
