During his keynote address Prof Nader proposed that in a scientific age it was important to bring out the scientific basis of Yoga and show the rationale behind its benefits. He presented five volumes of Scientific Research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme to Virendra Sharma MP and Tom Brake MP.
'The four chapters of Yoga,' Prof Nader said, 'correspond in both structure and function to the four lobes of the human brain. The same is true at the next level of consideration, where the number of sutras in each chapter corresponds in both structure and function to the number of cortical folds in each of the lobes of the brain. Every one of us has within us, built into our very physiology, the essential quality of Yoga, which is unifying.'

Global Good News comment:
* Dr. Tony Nader received his M.D. degree from the American University of Beirut, where he also studied internal medicine and psychiatry. His Ph.D. is in the area of Brain and Cognitive Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He was a Clinical and Research Fellow in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Assistant director of the Clinical Research Center at MIT. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness. Dr. Nader has successfully correlated each aspect of the Vedic Literature to a specific area of human physiology and anatomy, as well as the cell and the DNA, with the conclusion that human physiology is the expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature. This is the subject matter of five of his published books.
**The text on the award reads: 'A world scholar in all Indian Traditional Sciences, who respects and serves people from all walks of life, and has truly touched the lives of communities of the world irrespective of race or religion in the furtherance of Indian Traditional Sciences.'
