2) Brief Description about the book
We are born and, as life moves on, we get so busy that we hardly turn around and look back at our birth. How did we come to this world? What were our experiences in the womb? Did that journey of nine months contribute to our personality that we have today? Human embryology is a fascinating field. From the time when we considered the embryo to be just an unknown tadpole-like structure, to today’s advanced technologies such as ultrasound, we have learnt a great deal about life in the womb. These advanced technologies have helped us discover a startling picture of our intelligent and active life we had in the womb. However, there are still several questions that remain unanswered and mysteries yet to be unraveled. Embark on a voyage with Dr. T. D. Singh, the celebrated author of over two dozen renowned publications on the interface between science and spirituality, as he delves deeper into this enthralling subject. Dr. Singh, a scientist with a PhD from the University of California, Irvine and a Vedantist in the Bhakti-vedanta tradition of India, brings forth penetrating insights from both the latest scientific knowledge in this field and the age-old wisdom of Vedanta.
