In this powerful short work, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind extols the virtues of Nam 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 Nam. 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. Sansar Rogi Nam Daru literally translated as “Mankind is sick; Nam 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 outgrows its doubts, the heart conquers fear and sorrow and rises victorious over the dolors of death. Progress, more progress, ever upward and Godward, is the magical panacea for all our ills.
