About the Book

Consciousness or being conscious is part of our everyday life, every minute. We know we have consciousness but we do not know about it -What is it? From where does it arise or is it itself a fundamental aspect of reality? Consciousness is a mystery for all of us even after decades of advancement in natural sciences and medical field. The author, Dr. T. D. Singh, is one of the renowned personalities, a pioneer and visionary who gave a new start to this field of consciousness and was instrumental in bringing consciousness under scientific investigation. He launched the 'First International Conference on the Study of Consciousness within Science' in 1990 at San Francisco, California. From neuroscientists to quantum physicists to psychologists including two Nobel Laureates, he brought together the most eminent minds on a common table for a serious dialogue. Dr. Singh, who underwent rigorous practice both as a firm scientist and as a profound Vedantist, has brought out some of the most precious and deeper aspects of this mystery of consciousness in this volume.

About the Author

Dr. T. D. Singh (His Holiness Bhaktisvarupa Damodara Swami) has a unique background. He is a scientist with a Ph.D. in Physical Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Irvine, USA, as well as a spiritualist in the Bhakti-Vedanta tradition of India. He has authored and edited a number of books on science and religion, including his famous dialogue with Prof. Roger Penrose: Science, Spirituality and the Nature of Reality. He is the Founder Director of the Bhaktivedanta Institute and has been one of the pioneers in advancing the dialogue between science and religion over the past three decades.

Introduction

Since the last few decades, consciousness has emerged as an important field of study in scientific and philosophical disciplines. There is a growing interest to investigate consciousness among quantum physicists, neuro-physiologists, cognitive philosophers and spiritualists. As Prof. Christof Koch, who collaborated with late Francis Crick attempting to discover `neurobiological basis' of consciousness, expressed: "Consciousness is one of the major unsolved problems in science today."

Biologists try to explain consciousness using neuronal activity. Quantum physicists try to explain the collapse of

the wave function through some interaction of the mind or consciousness. However, these theories are inadequate to explain consciousness.

In this book, the author presents a glimpse of various scientific attempts and their limitations to comprehend consciousness. We will then present the ancient Vedantic insights about consciousness.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
