One plus one

In the mathematics of love, one plus one is infinity.

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” Which great man could have made such a sharp observation? However much you scratch your head, you’ll be wrong. This romantic statement cannot be made by Buddha, Mahavir, Jesus Christ or Mohammed. Nor were Vinoba or Gandhi known for uttering such truths. This statement is not by Rabindranath or J.Krishnamurthi. It is not made by Woody Allen, Bill Clinton or Bill Gates. This great statement has been made by the great scientist and lover Albert Einstein. The romantic truth in the statement is something that today’s young people can accept. The older people who understand the emotion in this statement will never be unhappy. What does youth have to do with age?

Are you beautiful because you are loving, or are you loving because you are beautiful? Answering this riddle takes up an entire life. Man’s heart has its own reasons, which the mind cannot understand. Remember that age does not stop you from loving, but love can stop you from getting old. The mathematics of love is different from the mathematics of the mind. The mind calculates that one plus one is two. The heart is different. The mathematics of love finds that one plus one is infinity. Those who have empty hearts and very logical minds can do business, but cannot love. The mind copes well with the internet. The heart undertands the interior-net.

To fall in love, one does not need the power of gravity.

  1. I have actually consulted Albert on numerous occasions in dealing w lady troubles… it seems taking up with other women is the answer.

    Hello mama… Ashish here. avjo.

  2. Bhai, How do I get in touch with Gunvantbhai? Any chance I could email him. I am from Baroda originally and have always been fan of Gunvantbhai and would love to communicate with him. Thanks. Regards.


    Vedas say – “devasya pashya kavyam” i.e. behold and correctly study the secrets of the Vedas and the Universe. They are embodiments of God’s excellence. So it’s quite natural that we study creation in the sciences. If it is supported by appropriate logic and right conclusions, it may lead one towards true theism. But we must understand that in modern science there exists no special lesson or chapter treating the subject of God. Therefore, how can we say that God has a place in modern science?

    Einstein has said and written about God, and also admitted that the universe is logical and orderly. However, his concept of God was different than the Vedic concept of God as illustrated in brief by Maharshi Dayananda Saraswati in the second principle of the Arya Samaj. For example, Einstein didn’t believe that God supervises the actions of souls and administers justice.

    At the same time Einstein was not fully happy or satisfied with his scientific achievements. He was also yearning for the true knowledge of God. I quote below a paragraph in support of this from his famous biography:

    Walking with a young woman physicist to his Berlin University office, Einstein spelled out the same task in more detail. He had no interest in learning a new language, nor in food nor in new cloths. “I’m not much with people,” he continued, “and I’m not a family man. I want my peace. I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details.” (Einstein: The Life & Times, by – Ronald W. Clark, p.37)
