“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.” -Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind 978-1-932630-70-1
Troubled Mind in a Torturing World is a collection of seventeen essays looking at the things that separate man from God in the torturing modern world. It is being published posthumously after Dr. Thind’s departure from this world on September 15, 1967, to his Heavenly Abode. He had intended to dedicate this book to his father and teacher, Boota Singh Thind. Dr. Thind was deeply influenced by his father’s benevolence toward his fellow human beings and his deepest love of the Almighty God. Dr. Thind was inspired by his father’s spiritual accomplishments, which left an indelible impression on the author’s mind. He followed his father’s legacy throughout his entire life and built on it. In the lectures to vast audiences in cities throughout the United States, Dr. Thind often said, “The destiny of God is the most profitable discovery—and it certainly is.” Now read about this discovery for yourself. Chapters include: When Vision Fails at the Top; Declaration of My Independence and Interdependence; The Rise of Machine and the Fall of Man; Mind Cures Come and Mind Cures Go; Japa-Jap, or Mental Meditation.
In his writings and teachings, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind has made immense contributions toward an integral psychology, philosophy, and scientific approach to religion. Finding God is the most profitable discovery; only in God is man truly himself. If Heaven is not within, there is no Heaven. The human mind is the place where everyone has to live, and it is within this human mind that everyone has to find his only opportunity for peace, happiness, and wholeness. The division between the mind’s different units is destructive and disruptive of harmony, health, and happiness. As Dr. Thind wrote, “For the human mind and its ills there is no cure, only palliatives, except one—that the mind be made whole. Only the unified mind can see things whole and see them all the time.” That which raises man above the beast and his ego-centeredness, however altruistically inclined, is neither the church nor scriptures, dogmas, and rites, nor any or all defunct founders of “religions,” neither the cudgel for the beast nor the cautioned restraint of the mentally matured, though all are necessary in their respective places. Rather, that which raises man to wholeness is the inward five-melodied music of the everlasting word of God, the Holy Nam—the Punch Shabad. Each individual is unique, distinct, different, and divine. Nothing can save him the hardships of his own self-development. We are sub-humans until we face facts and catch them alive; meet them, greet them, and beat them, and grow through them into the Godlike stature of our souls. Only then can we become “Pillars of Powers” as we work with Chardhi-Kala of the Nam—the power of horizontal self-transcendence.
This book is the second of three volumes in the series Jesus, the Christ in the Light of Spiritual Science. It has been often iterated and reiterated—but never sufficiently—that the Kingdom of God is within and everyone, regardless of cast, color, or creed, can enjoy the full, real, radiant, resonant, power-filled presence of the Lord of his life, and be identical with the Lord, co-operant, and participant with Him. This is the eternal emphasis of Sat-Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh Religion, no less than it is that of Jesus Christ. Salvation is not an annihilation of individuality, nor a union of man and God in which man is no more and is the loser; it is the most living, loving, and creative fellowship of man and God, in which man becomes ever more Godlike. Eternal life is a present possession and not a post-mortem realization. If chemicals can restore the yield of worn-out soil, can we hope to renew the tissues and energies of our worn-out minds and inner beings through the life-restoring forces of the Word of God—the Holy Nam, the perpetual reservoir pf verities, and vitalities? Are these key-chemicals of life and body the lack of which makes men weak and woebegone, and the abundance of which makes them worthy, wise, wonderful and Godlike? What Dr. Thind writes in these pages is not only true for him but is testable by all.
This is the third in a series of four volumes written for those who have freed themselves of orthodox religious thinking and those who are ready to free themselves. Completed shortly before Dr. Thind’s death, September, 15, 1967, Volume 111 of this series is now published at the request and with the financial help of his many disciples. The four volumes of Jesus, the Christ, in the Light of Spiritual Science will serve all who are fortunate enough to understand and appreciate their content. They serve as a springboard to greater spiritual heights, wherein one appreciates more than ever the message of the Sat-Gurus, Saviors, Avatars, and Christs, of whom Jesus the Christ was one. From the text . . . “Many things that Jesus taught were never reported not written and many things written and reported were neither uttered by him nor entertained….” “To rightly know Him, we must have a mind freed from our projections upon Him of our own private ideas. . . " “There are many religions, but only one Morality, one Truth, and one God. The only Heaven is one of conscious life and fellowship with God. . .” “Spiritual Science needs no altar, no priesthood, no spiritual brokers, who make deals for humanity on the floor of the Celestial Exchange. . . " “Church thinking is done under prescription while investigating spirit is the essence of Sant-Mat, the Spiritual Science.” “This book deals with the Science of human nature and its transfiguration and transformation.”
Health outweighs all other blessings, and regular breathing and gland exercises are worth a host of physicians.”
—Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind
The Benefits of Breath: “Health Is the Best Wealth”
Breathing is the very root of your life; it is vital. It is important, therefore, that you do it properly. No habit pays bigger dividends and pays them so promptly as complete breathing, maintaining strength and suppleness in all the sixteen vital organs of the body. It is the source of your health, your cheerful spirits, your feeling of youth, your energy, and your relaxation.
A body that functions at its peak is a blessing to its owner. Health is so much higher than all other values that soul can build its grandeur and glory upon it alone. No relationship can long be maintained without health, and no health without harmony of vital bodily, mental, and emotional functions. If you know how to regulate and synthesize mind-processes, you can cure disease completely.
The art of complete breathing is fundamental in your task of acquiring relaxation. It releases the nerve centers from the extensive tension that afflicts them. Correct and complete breathing has a tremendous effect on maintaining the harmony of body, mind, and emotions. It brings full relaxation. Only the relaxed mind is open to ideas. A deep breath helps break every fear or sinking spell.
The exercises in the new DVD, The Science of Breathing and Glands, 2nd Edition, comprise teachings that have been practiced for thousands of years in India, Persia, Egypt, and Ancient Greece. Originating in India during the Vedic period, more than 10,000 years ago, they represent some of the oldest philosophies in the world. They were perfected by ancient saints and yoga masters, who received this knowledge intuitively from the divine, and have been passed down from master to student for centuries. Originally this was a secret science, but today these same exercises are practiced as an integral part of any yoga class, in both the East and here in the West.
Building upon the success of the first edition of The Science of Breathing and Glands, the second edition includes three new exercises and comes with a fully revised and expanded booklet of explanatory notes and detailed instructions for each exercise.
The Science of Correct Breathing: “The Nerves Are the Man”
To know man, it is necessary to understand why it is that he needs air to breathe; and to know the air, we must understand how it relates to the life of man.
Without breathing, man cannot live. Breathing is the process of taking in vital energy and removing waste products from the body and mind. The chemical basis of life is essentially an oxidation of tissues. Oxygen carbonizes the lung tissue, and a fire follows the meeting of oxygen and carbon in the lung cells as surely as in the stove, and where this fire is kept constantly burning, it is impossible for bacilli and the cohorts of death to exist.
Shallow breathing, on the other hand, means that the waste material in the body is not burnt up, and the result is fatigue, or a lack of zest for living. The blood, filled with toxins, gets heavy, lazy and causes poor circulation.
Any impediment to respiration checks development, both mental and physical. When your personal rhythm is disturbed, it harms you physically, mentally and emotionally. Nervousness is simply disturbed breathing rhythm. A tense person never has the same amount of courage as the relaxed one. Conversely, the person whose breathing rhythm has the longest pause is the one least likely to break down under the strain of action. All competition is strain, and all cooperation is mutual gain.
Indeed, the breath-force or prana is the final cause of all the manifested forces of nature. Practical study and rigid training in the Science of Breath and nature’s finer forces through the unfailing psychotherapeutic methods demonstrated in these exercises will help all nerve, gland, and functional disorders and derangements, adjusting them through simple and natural methods.
These exercises are built on the comprehension of the law of radiation of magnetic currents and of the psychic potencies or force-centers found in all bodies, and upon their relationship to the cosmic force-centers and currents of the solar system and the universe. Our bodies are subject to the same rhythmic laws as is the Earth itself in its revolution around the sun, and the solar system around the galaxy, and the galaxy around the universe.
Much of the esoteric side of the Science of Breathing and Glands is based upon this well-known principle of nature. By falling in with the rhythm of the body, the yogi manages to absorb a great amount of prana, which he disposes to bring about the results he desires.
Meditating on the Breath: “Throb Thine with Nature’s Throbbing Breast”
As the breath enters your body and as it leaves the body, watch it, not breathing unnaturally but assuming the role of the witness to life’s function inside you. Watch as it comes in and out. You will notice in a short while that you will have a consciousness that you are something above life itself.
Later on you will have the feeling of hearing the beating of the inner throb within you. As Emerson says, “Throb thine with Nature’s throbbing breast and all is clear from East to West.” There is no such a thing as hearing the inner throb. Later on, some people close their eyes and ears, and they hear an inner hum inside them and they concentrate on that inner hum until they are totally lost in it. This gives a consciousness of being a witness, an observer.
Yogis seek to attain the state of universal consciousness through meditation and rhythmic breathing, and these exercises will do much toward developing this universal consciousness in those who earnestly and faithfully practice them.

The Effects of Using These Breathing Exercises
The exercises in The Science of Breathing and Glands bring stimulating pressure to bear on important nerve centers, which in turn stimulate and energize the entire nervous system and send an increased flow of nerve-force to all parts of the body. By practicing these exercises as a way of life, the student of breath can increase the circulation in any part of the body by an order from the will, and in the same way he can direct an increased current of nerve-force to any part or organ, stimulating and strengthening it.
Practiced devotedly, respirotherapy, or the Science of Breathing and Glands exercises, helps remove all ailments. These exercises are wonderful for developing the lungs, muscles, ligaments, air sacs of the lungs, and all parts of the body, and are especially effective against chronic conditions.
These corrective exercises, combined with selective diet, help cure the following conditions: constipation, dyspepsia, sleeplessness, melancholy, nervous exhaustion, headache, piles, heart disease, neuralgia, sinus troubles, diabetes, hysteria, consumption, obesity and underweight, sterility, and impotence. They result in definite improvement of circulation, digestion, assimilation, and elimination. In these ways, complete breathing can even arrest the process of aging itself—the mother of all chronic conditions.
Breathing and Other Disciplines
Complete breathing enhances all it touches, and it is an invaluable aid to all other health and fitness practices.
Rhythmic breathing improves the efficacy of all healing modalities by several hundred percent, in that it increases the flow of nerve- and breath-energy to the site of healing. A knowledge of the Science of Breathing and Glands is a great asset to any health practitioner.
Likewise, yoga instructors, fitness professionals, and personal trainers will, through these exercises, become more aware of the truths and myths surrounding the art of breathing, as well as of the related conditions affected by proper or improper breathing. This will allow them to better teach and guide their students and clients.
“All life on Earth is breath. All else on Earth is death. Breath is the flywheel of life: its dynaspheric finer forces, sanely used, add years to life and life to years.”

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
