Most of the Hinduism scriptures are from self experience of truth by Rishis.

Is there any mention about researchers or scientists in scriptures? I mean are there any examples of persons from scriptures who are in research or does scriptures mention anywhere about research profession?

Note that the research I am talking about is the research happening in current days i.e., with proofs or experimental evidences other than self experiences of truth.

    Why do you say it is not verifiable ? They have clearly given methods by which you can see them for yourself ? Did you try those methods ? – ram Jun 3 '19 at 3:17

    @ram that is what I'm saying.. It can be gained by self-experience... Not by current research methods... – hanugm Jun 3 '19 at 3:18
