This guide is an account of my own path in understanding science and spirituality and my efforts to make sense of it all

The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark One of the best books on the path of science, it shows how the scientific quest is a search for truth, and is ultimately also a spiritual path..

The Circle of Fire: The Metaphysics of Yoga Far too many people argue that a path to spirituality must always contradict science. This excellent book shows that it need not be so. While paths like dualistic Christianity do contradict science, there are other philosophies like that of Buddhism and Advaita which are in concordance with modern science, and indeed the metaphysics of these religions have been vindicated by science. A great eye opener, this book will show you how you can follow a spiritual path, the most ancient spiritual path, and yet stick to science and reason. A gentle, enquiring book of utmost importance to all who wish to know more about both spirituality and science.

The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality This book by the Dalai Lama is also an exploration of science, and shows how science can be understood and explored while still being spiritual.

A Short History of Nearly Everything This is a great book for understanding modern science, and all the quirkiness unearthed by modern physics.

The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism (25th Anniversary Edition) An important book, one of the first book to explore the synergies between modern science and Eastern religion.

Quantum Reality: Beyond the New Physics A very good exposition of new physics, and its application to understanding deep reality.

Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics Although written in 1975, it still remains one of the best books on modern physics.

The God Particle: If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question? A look at how scientific research works and the steps that scientists have to go through.
