Books by Dr. T.D. Singh
Thoughts on Synthesis of Science And Religion
This major publication by the Bhaktivedanta Institute contains learned articles on the synthesis of science and religion from 42 eminent scholars, religious leaders and scientists of the world including five Nobel Laureates. The volume was formally released as part of the annual Indian Science Congress and was highly appreciated by the then President of India Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. Containing seven main sections, the volume reflects upon possible grounds for the synthesis of science and religion and covers a wide variety of subject matter including faith, ethics, culture, consciousness, biology, quantum mechanics, ecology / environment, biomedical ethics for the 21st century, and world peace. It further explores the exciting and evocative work emerging in the fields of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, psychology, philosophy and vast body of spiritual and religious experiences.
Essays on Science and Religion
Science and religion are the two most dominant forces of humanity in the search for the ultimate meaning of life and the universe. Are these two forces reconcilable? If yes, what are the possible grounds for their synthesis? Could the recent developments in science and technology about human nature and the cosmos enable us to explore religious wisdom in new ways? In pivotal times like ours, what role could the science and religion dialogue play in restoring world peace? Moreover, what implications would this dialogue have on our future scientific researches? Reflecting on some of these profound issues, Dr. T. D. Singh (His Holiness Bhaktisvarupa Damodara Swami) presents in this volume four groundbreaking essays on science and religion, providing useful insights about the relationship between science and religion in our continuing quest for the deeper understanding of life and the universe.
Life, Matter and Their Interactions
The rapid advancements in science and technology have enabled us to penetrate deeper into the subatomic world and unfold many secrets behind various life processes. But are we now in a position to answer the question, 'what is life?' Is life an outcome of evolution of matter or a fundamentally different entity altogether? How do we explain various phenomena of life such as consciousness, free will, love, purpose, beauty, etc., which seem to be beyond the mere interaction of biomolecules? On the other hand, if life is beyond matter, how does it interact with matter and what laws does it follow? In this unique volume, the author, Dr. T. D. Singh, examines very closely the finer characteristics of life, matter and the nature of their interactions. The known physical laws of the present day, he proposes, seem quite insufficient to account for the features of life. Drawing insights from the ancient Vedantic texts, he thus presents an alternative view of life beyond molecules. Sixty years after Schrodinger's What is life?, this volume is a brilliant resource for all those interested to delve deeper into the deeper understanding of life.
God is A Person
Are God and His personality mere imagination of the human mind? Or does He really exist with divine attributes? If He exists and has personality, what kind of person is He? Is He like us with physical bodies shaped with genome and acting in space-time? Or is He a transcendental personality beyond the comprehension of our tiny brains? This volume is an excellent presentation of two classic dialogues T. D. Singh had with two prominent Nobel Laureates in Physics - Charles Townes and William Phillips. Charles Townes received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1964 for his discovery of laser and maser. He also won the Templeton Prize in 2005. William Phillips received the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics for using lasers to cool and trap neutral atoms
Seven Nobel Laureates on Science And Spirituality
This unique book edited by Dr. T. D. Singh consists of two dialogues and five essays. This is a sincere effort to bring so many Nobel Laureates together in one publication discussing Science and Spirituality. These seven esteemed contributors are: (1) Prof. Charles Townes, Nobel Laureate in Physics (2) Prof. Werner Arber, Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine (3) His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Nobel Laureate in Peace (4) Prof. George Wald, Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine (5) Ms. Betty Williams, Nobel Laureate in Peace (6) Prof. B. D. Josephson, Nobel Laureate in Physics (7) Prof. Richard R. Ernst, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry. These contemporary thinkers explore the link between science and spirituality in several areas of human concern such as, the role of Science and Religion in the search for the Origin of Life, the study of the nature of Consciousness, understanding the purpose behind the Universe, the role of Faith, and Ethical Challenges. With an Introduction by Dr. T. D. Singh and the invaluable insights of the great thinkers presented in this volume, the book is an invaluable resource for all interested in the emerging field of science and spirituality.
