Tribute

“From the first moment we met, Dr. Singh gave me the impression that he was an extraordinary personality. Dr. Singh is a man with great human qualities, which stem from a great heart. He is a man of deep understanding, compassion, humility, love and spirituality.

….. Compassion and love in Dr. Singh go beyond the barriers of race and religious background. Because of his respect for every human person, Dr. Singh doesn’t make any distinction between the rich and the poor, a VIP and the man in the street. He treats every single person with the same respect and love….. He not only teaches with his word but also teaches especially with his life.”

Father Maximilian Mizzi
Assisi, Italy

“… an outstanding person … Dr. Singh’s contribution to the understanding of religion and the relation between science and religion … will have a long-standing influence.”

Charles H. Townes
Nobel Laureate in Physics


“I believe that Dr. T. D. Singh’s friendship with various religionists could be a model for promoting peace and love among diverse people of the world.”

Ven. Jinwol Lee
Prof., Dongguk University, Korea
Global Trustee URI Asia &  
EXCO member of WFB

“… it is easy to celebrate Dr. T. D. Singh’s work for interfaith understanding and cooperation. His gracious, joyous and humble spirit, his deep reverence for God, his keen intellect, his compassionate commitment, his gracious hospitality and his ready laugh are an inspiration, and are incomparable gifts to any interfaith effort for peace, justice and healing.

In particular, Dr. T. D. Singh has been an extraordinary gift to the United Religions Initiative. Over the years, he has contributed greatly to the URI’s chartering process… But he went far beyond helping to write words on a page. Through his efforts, those words have become a living reality. He has helped spread the URI’s vision throughout Asia and played a key role in enabling the URI’s regional conference for Asia and the Pacific in Bali, Indonesia in December 2001.

It has been a privilege to work side by side with Dr. T. D. Singh, to travel with him, to share visions of the possible and to join hands to make those visions real. But perhaps the greatest privilege has been to sit with him in stillness in the presence of the sacred evoked so purely in his beautiful chanting.”

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, Intelligent Design and Fine-Tuning

Is God no longer necessary in a world that is increasingly influenced by a scientific temper? Or, on the contrary, have the findings of modern sciences forced us to approach the question of the existence of God in new ways? God, Intelligent Design and Fine-Tuning is a profound exchange between Dr. T. D. Singh and prominent biochemist Prof. Michael J. Behe from Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, USA, exploring how recent advancements in science points amazingly towards God. Over the past four decades, modern biochemistry has uncovered the secrets of cells and has revealed to us the marvelous design even at the molecular level. Advancements in science have also shown us some of the precise laws and unique fundamental constants in the universe. All these facts and observations point to a fine-tuned and specially designed universe with a purpose by a Supreme Being of God. As one journeys through the newly discovered marvels of the cosmos and life discussed in this volume, one will be compelled to reexamine his opinion concerning the origins, evolution and essence of this wonderful world in which we live.

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.

Science, Spirituality and the Nature of Reality

Since antiquity, many prominent thinkers of the world, from Plato to Tagore and from Newton to Einstein, have attempted to unveil the nature of reality. But reality seems always deeper than our feeble minds can comprehend. Can a combined effort of science and spirituality, the two most dominant forces of humanity, help us to delve deeper into the nature of reality? This unique dialogue between Dr. T. D. Singh and Sir Roger Penrose (like the well-known East-West dialogue between Tagore and Einstein) is a sincere attempt to seek some possible answers to the question of reality. Reflecting on a wide range of topics from consciousness to cosmology and from scientific mystery to mathematical beauty, this dialogue will provide readers with useful insights in their quest for the ultimate reality.
