We are surrounded by mountains of unlimited mysteries. In any discipline, if one goes a little deeper, he encounters myriads of mystical elements. Starting from the question about the existence of cute imaginary numbers (are they really imaginary?) in mathematics, to the meaning of incomprehensible wavefunction in physics and the inaccessible origin of life in the life-sciences, just to name a few, we cannot escape mysteries around us. In fact, the developments of modern science itself over the last four centuries have even opened them wider before us, as never before. In his spiritual journey, a mystic also encounters mysteries at every step and looks for answers. What are the various mysteries in physics, mathematics, life-sciences or cosmology? How does a scientist or a mystic encounter them? What paths does he take to move ahead? What guides his journey and what is the future of such a seeker? Explore these and more in this extremely precious publication, Mysticism – A Meeting Point of Science and Religion, with one of the most brilliant scientist and saint of our times, Dr. T. D. Singh. Dr. Singh, who had a firsthand experience of both, with his Ph.D. in Physical Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Irvine and having undergone devout mystical training in the age-old Vaishnava Vedantic tradition of India, takes us into its depth with utmost insights and simplicity.
