In this powerful short work, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind extols the virtues of Nãm meditation and describes its power to lift mankind from its earthbound state and unite us with the indwelling God. To Dr. Thind, life is an adventure. “All things worthwhile in life…are adventures in which the human spirit goes out to experience the realities of life.” But in so doing, we encounter not only pleasure and happiness, but also hardship and suffering, which are equally essential to the human experience. The true path lies not in denying these, but in transcending life’s inevitable ups and downs by uniting them through meditation on the Na¯m. Indeed, it is our “adventure” in the world of opposites that gives the human spirit the strength and vitality it needs to complete its own fulfillment. Sansãr Rogi Nãm Dãru, literally translated as “Mankind is sick; Nã is the medicine,” is Dr. Thind’s diagnosis, prescription, and prognosis for mankind. “The goal of all science and scholarship is the glorious spiritual communion with the indwelling Lord of our own life.… Only through communion with the Living Word can the body heal its hurts, the mind outgrow its doubts, the heart conquer fear and sorrow and rise victorious over the dolors of death. Progress, more progress, ever upward and Godward, is the magical panacea for all our ills
IN this series of seven lectures, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind addresses the deﬁning metaphysical concepts of
Sikhism and discusses some of the more practical aspects of realizing the divine wisdom that lies within us all, here and now. A master rhetorician as well as an accomplished spiritual adept, Dr.
Thind illustrates his lucid explanation of subtle but profound spiritual truths with traditional stories from his native India and entertaining anecdotes from his own experiences as a student and teacher of the path to realization. In this way, Dr. Thind leads the student to ask and answer such questions as how the will can coexist with nature and Godhead; how to develop personal magnetism as a tool for realization; how to manifest the latent energy of shakti and open up the seven chakras in daily life and spiritual practice; how to conquer the passions that drive worldly affairs and turn them to divine use; how to harness the power of concentration in meditation; how to use sex energy constructively; and much more. Divine wisdom is not some distant object to be attained; it is latent within each of us, waiting to be realized.ISBN: 978-1-932630-74-6
"Man is Deity in Expression"
In this collection of deep and inspiriting essays, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind imparts a true knowledge of life as it appears in physical manifestation. In doing so, he has set forth the true philosophy of life, in which philosophical selfishness is set aside, creeds and dogmas are relegated to the past, and sunlight of truth is permitted to shine in all its splendor.
There can be no variance in truth. It is the same now and forever. Where there appears to be variance , it is due to a perversion by the instrument through which the observer views the world, such that the media through which life is manifesting is at variance with the object seen.
The grandeur of life is destroyed by the attitude of the ego toward the objective world---which, however, has not changed. The change is within man, and is caused by the assumption of various moods. Instead, we must learn to view the world by the divine spark that animates our being. We must become one with the Infinite in order to comprehend even a small portion of the all.
Dr Thind has very explicitly blaze the path to full comprehension of our higher nature, and if faithfully followed it will lead the seeker to higher knowledge.ISBN: 978-1-932630-73-2
In this, the final volume of the series Jesus, the Christ, Dr. -Bhagat Singh Thind -continues his careful and critical examination of the scriptures and practices of Christianity, and contrasts them with the requisites of true spiritual growth and the unification of man and God.
Dr. Thind asks hard questions, and answers them with keen and cutting insight. Why was God’s greatest creation—man—so imperfect as to require a savior? Why did God wait millennia before sending him; and why is man’s redemption still incomplete, two thousand years later? How—and by whom—were the gospels composed, and why is there no record of Jesus’ life other than the brief period of his ministry? What meaning can we ascribe to some of Jesus’ apparently irrational words and deeds? And why does Jesus never smile, but often weep?
No defunct savior—be he Christian or Sikh, Jew or Gentile—can ever save mankind. Rather, a living and present guru is needed to assist each individual in seeking his own perfect unification with God, which can only be accomplished through meditation on His Holy Na¯m. The seeker must transcend both his human and animal nature, and all other pairs of opposites, knowing that struggle and suffering are essential to the growth of the soul on its Godward path. Ultimately, we must learn to see reality with God’s eyes, as He Himself sees it.
This rational, pragmatic, and testable -approach to -religion is the essence of Sant-Mat, or Spiritual Science. Indeed, science and religion are complementary, not opposites—for, as Dr. Thind points out, what is true in one cannot be false in the other.ISBN: 978-1-932630-77-0

Every object which is not a product of nature, but is the result of man’s creative intelligence, requires a maker. The creator and Ruler of the world is omnipotent; He rewards the virtuous and punishes the vicious. In His government, there is no favoritism. But He has infinite mercy for those who repent and purify. Not a straw shakes without His knowledge or will. He knows whatever we do, even in the greatest secrecy. He is omnipresent and omniscient. There is nothing beyond Him. He is infinite. He is the cause of everything, but has no cause for His own being. He is supreme, infinite, and perfect. ISBN: 978-1-932630-85-5
Know no bounds
From the yogis of ancient India to the masters of American Transcendentalism to the global thinkers of today, philosophers, spiritualists, and divines, be they Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, or Jews—all have recognized and extolled the wondrous power and beauty of divine truth and oneness and their transformative effect on the human soul.
Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind has here collected the wisdom of the ages from all of these traditions—and several others—as a guide to seekers of all faiths and climes: the first true “bible of humanity” that opens the doors of spiritual reality to all people, regardless of caste or clime. Without preaching, free of condoning and condemning, Dr. Thind lifts us above the bonds of worldly causes and cares and focuses our vision on the one great goal worth striving for: a celebration of our true identity with the ineffable. One that lies simultaneously within and without us, here, there, and everywhere, and which is our true destiny and our ultimate reward.
“Winners and Whiners in This Whirling World is a collection of thirty-five spiritual discourses that explains to the reader seeking truth that the end or fulfillment of life is self-realization through self-knowledge.
Dr. Thind teaches us how to transcend pain and pleasure and taste the source. He explains that one must renew one’s self, go back to his original source, put a halt to the eternal flux, and enter divine presence, there to be renewed by God’s regenerative and sustaining powers and come back to the natural world at will. This is the true meaning of meditation.
The first requisite is listening to the Shabad, the Word, Second is seeing the God-form of the guru shining gloriously. Then occurs the joining of the two: Himself becomes one with the form of God in the guru. He becomes Immanuel. His Immanuel becomes a living reality to human consciousness.

Tested Universal Science of Individual Meditation in Sikh Religion contains eight inspiring lessons on finding spiritual truth by means of scientific investigation into the human soul. These lessons, originally presented as lectures by Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind, focus uplifting the vital and physical man in each of us, with no spiritual ideal liberating us from ourselves into our inner being.
All conscious, subconscious, and unconscious activity of man’s mind functions purposefully as a unifying principle and power of the innate Godhead. Lying behind all phenomena is the power of God, which coordinates and correlates all into unity and synthesis; its name is Nam.
Conditioned beings residing in conditioned existence can never free themselves to join the unconditioned and uncreated God, except by the grace and power of His Holy Nam, knowledge of which is vouchsafed by the gracious guru.
By putting these blessed teachings of Sa-Guru Bhagat Singh Thind into practice, those seeking wisdom will learn to become one with both themselves and God.ISBN:978-1-932630-81-7
The Enlightened Life presents a collection of seven meditation lessons written by Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind to enable the seeker to find his own source of Truth though the daily practice of concentration and meditation. Dr. Thind explains that ignorance is the dark night of the soul, a night without stars or moon; it is the field in which all difficulties grow, in which all passions and weaknesses are born. The sage’s quest is for himself and within himself. He advances continually in the spiritual life by remaining carefully self-gathered within, and sees the gleam of true light there, which dispels all outer darkness. Whoever wishes to know the Truth must sound the depths of his own heart. The eternal cannot be seen, so long as mind in not as rest. The force of attention, properly guided and directed toward the Inner Life, allows us to analyze out soul, and will shed light on many things. The force of the mind resembles scattered rags; concentrate them, and they illumine everything. This is the sole source of knowledge we possess; to attain this knowledge there is only on method--concentration and meditation. In The Enlightened Life Dr. Thind offers the wisdom and guidance of a true sat-guru in the profound practice of meditation. For, as he often said, “Real action is done in moments of silence; there every battle is won before it is fought.” ISBN: 9781-932630-76-3
Born in the holy city of Amritsar and educated at Khalsa College, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind arrived in the United States in 1912 and became a great teacher of purest spirituality, whose legacy continues to inspire truth-seekers to this day.
During his early years in the lumber mills of the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Thind was active in the Gadar movement, helping to secure the same liberty for Indians at home that he and other immigrants sought in America.
After a brief stint in the U.S. Army during World War I, he embarked on a lifelong career of lecturing and writing that would eventually reach millions of truth-seekers worldwide.
At the same time, he fought for—and eventually won—American citizenship, a struggle that included a “landmark” Supreme Court case with a most regrettable outcome.
In the 1950s Dr. Thind, or “Doctorji” as his students lovingly called him, began to publish—nearly a dozen books in his lifetime, with more than a score available today. In them he set forth the profound philosophy of Spiritual Science, a tested method of uniting the individual soul with its ultimate Creator, which he insisted each person must do for himself.
This long-awaited biography, including dozens of rare photographs, traces the footsteps of Dr. Thind’s remarkable life, outlines the core principles of his teachings, and examines his legacy through the personal recollections of students and family who knew Doctorji first-hand.ISBN: 978-1-932630-75-6
