In his spiritual journey, a mystic also encounters mysteries at every step and looks for answers. What are the various mysteries in physics, mathematics, life-sciences or cosmology? How does a scientist or a mystic encounter them? What paths does he take to move ahead? What guides his journey and what is the future of such a seeker? Explore these and more in this extremely precious publication, Mysticism – A Meeting Point of Science and Religion, with one of the most brilliant scientist and saint of our times, Dr. T. D. Singh.
