Foreword:

The Indian Institute of Advanced Study is wedded to the noble task of research on fundamental themes of life relevant to humanity. With this objective in view the Institute organizes intensive research by its resident fellows lectures and talks by eminent visiting scholars and visiting Professor as well as by seminars, conference, workshops at Shimla and outside through its collaborative institutes and centres. The Institute has a distinguished record of publication of books, monographs proceedings of seminars, symposiums, etc. It publishes two journals- Summerhill: IIAS Review and Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences. These Publications go a long way in achieving the aims and ideals of the Institute.

The Institute has launched a programme entitled " Dissemination of Knowledge" under which it publishes Occasional Papers on significant themes of knowledge relevant to society, nation and humanity. The Institute has undertaken the responsibility for publishing a critical research journal in Hindi entitled Chetna also with this end in view.

It is a matter of satisfaction to note that the paper entitled Neuroscience, Consciousness and philosophy by professor G.C. Pande brings into focus neuroscience and consciousness and Philosophy as the phenomenology of consciousness and yoga as the sience of consciousness. Its conclusion that consciousness is the deepest telos immanent in the evolutionary process of nature and society and to realize the full nature of consciousness would be to realize divinity on earth is really inspiring.

I felicitate the learned scholar for his Path- breaking presentation on a theme which is of hottest debate in science as well as spirituality. I am sure that such synthesis of science and spirituality, as this paper presents, will be welcomed by scholars and general interested readers.
