Basic Science


Observation leads to questioning, some of which leads us to science. From the basic science labs at Agastya International Foundation, which takes science lessons into rural India, these portraits of models and experiments offer a unique opportunity to appreciate their function and visual interest. The absence of human interaction makes them curious, mysterious, and at times simply humorous.
'The great benefit of science is that it can contribute tremendously to the alleviation of suffering at the physical level, but it is only through the cultivation of the qualities of the human heart and the transformation of our attitudes that we can begin to address and overcome our mental suffering… We need both, since the alleviation of suffering must take place at both the physical and the psychological levels'.
~ Dalai Lama
