Today, the concept of evolution has influenced the whole world. It is taught in almost all schools and colleges of the world and is influencing thousands of students around the globe every moment.
Life, according to this paradigm, is a product of the evolution of the lifeless cosmic dust particles (atoms and molecules), which have no meaning and purpose. However, all religious traditions of the world proclaim a divine meaning and higher purpose of life. Vedanta, the topmost philosophical treatise of spiritual and cultural heritage of India, provides a vivid description about life, its origin and meaning. Taking insights from the Vedantic literatures, the author, Dr. T. D. Singh, presents a new holistic paradigm about life incorporating the spiritual dimension of life and evolution of consciousness. This Vedantic paradigm has the potential to look deeper into the nature of life. Dr. Singh, who is a unique blend of being a scientist and a spiritualist, has authored and edited a number of books in an attempt to understand the nature of reality including life from the interdisciplinary approach of science and religion/spirituality.
