The Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind Spiritual Science Foundation was founded on January 9, 2003, for the purpose of distributing the spiritual teachings of one of the greatest spiritual avatars of the twentieth century, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind.
It is estimated that in his fifty-two years of teaching, Dr. Thind lectured to more than five million Americans on the power of the Holy Na ̄m. In the course of his career, he also served in the U.S. Army, worked actively in India’s independence movement, and assisted many Indian students in completing their education in the United States.
Dr. Thind was born on October 3, 1892, in the state of Punjab, India, and received his early education within its Sikh community. After reading Emerson, Whitman, and Thoreau, he was inspired to fulfill his destiny as a spiritual teacher. He came to the U.S. in 1913 to pursue higher education, and earned a Ph.D. while working in the lumber mills of Washington and Oregon. His original intent was to become a lawyer, but he faced one obstacle—lawyers were required to be U.S. citizens. Thus commenced an eighteen-year campaign to become a citizen, during which citizenship was granted and rescinded three times. Eventually Dr. Thind’s case went from the Oregon District Court to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and eventually to the U.S. Supreme Court which, in 1923, issued a landmark decision lumping East Indians together with all other “non-white” races, effectively ending U.S. citizenship for all Asian immigrants for the next twenty-three years.
The sole purpose of the Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind Spiritual Science Foundation is to bring Dr. Thind’s message to the world by means of his teachings, which have appeared in more than one hundred books, e-books, DVDs, CDs, pamphlets and booklets. The long-awaited biography of Dr. Thind, Doctorji: His Life, Teachings, and Legacy is now available. We are also proud to announce the availability of Dr. Thind’s documentary, entitled “Doctor Ji—A Life Realized.” A copy of the trailer is now available for purchase on our web site: bhagatsinghthind.com. In addition, the full thirty- minute documentary is available to be shown to larger audiences by contacting the publishers. To date, the documentary has been shown in three film festivals and is scheduled for several more previews this year.
The Foundation currently has four U.S. book distributors, one international distributor, and several online vendors, as follows:
New Leaf Distributing
Baker & Taylor
Gazelle Books (U.K.)
New Age Books (India)
