"The Farmer's Son" by John Connell
"A fascinating portrait of a single sensibility, a born noticer, someone on whom nothing is lost, observing birth and death, the landscape, and his own heritage." ―Colm Tóibín, author of "Brooklyn" Learn more

In the past, East has lived religiously-- that is one pole-- and because it has lived religiously it has not been able to produce good science. The West has lived scientifically, and because of its science it has lost track of religion and spirituality. Now for the first time in this space age and internet, the East is no more East and the West is no more West. The earth is becoming one: the earth is becoming one global village. This is the time when the reconciliation between science and religion can be seen, can be understood.
Truth cannot contradict itself. Truth from science and truth from God/Religion must eventually converge into one grand whole, a unified knowledge of the laws that govern our universe. Those who fight over superiority of one over the other are blinded by ignorance about both.
Easterner or Westerner, the reader will have a fresh perspective about science, religion, and spirituality. It is easy to read book that changes your outlook towards religion and spirituality.
Dr. Sukhraj S. Dhillon has an advanced degree in life sciences and molecular biology from the West, and a fascination with yoga, breathing, religion, and spirituality from the East, crafted out of studies at Yale University, U.S.A., and Punjab University, India. Therefore, he presents quite successfully: Eastern and Western synthesis of science, religion, and spirituality.
The book consists of nine chapters and each chapter starts with an appropriate quote by some famous spiritualist, divine personality, prophet, philosopher or by the author itself: Chapter 1, The Power of Spirituality; Chapter 2, Religious Practices and New Consciousness; Chapter 3, The Universal Divine Mind; Chapter 4, A Free Mind; Chapter 5, Spiritual Living I; Chapter 6, Spiritual Living II; Chapter 7, God and Spirit; Chapter 8, Evil-The Absence of Goodness; Chapter 9, Full Living. The chapters precede by `A Word' of introduction, and are followed by `Test of Your spirituality Level,' and References.
The book introduction starts with a popular quote by Albert Einstein: "Religion without science is blind. Science without religion is lame" However, Dr. Dhillon goes even further to prove reconciliation between science and religion.
`Science, Religion & Spirituality' is written at a time when youth is returning to a kind of religion where spirituality is on the rise. There is no longer value in articles with titles such as "Is God Dead?" Today we are using science to complement our spirituality. With this new notion the book combines Eastern religious traditions and Western scientific knowledge to develop practical spirituality. There is practical information on how to observe the mind, to live in gratitude, and to discard expectations. The book describes benefits of focusing on our spiritual-self that leads to tranquility, increased production, a resurgence of vitality, mental clarity, and joy of living. There is even a test to know your spirituality level.
There are 3 chapters that describe: How concept of god and spirituality help us coping with stress. These describe virtues such as surrender, forgiveness, prayer, positive thinking, and control over mind. There is information about relieving fear of death and disease, and creating a state of mind without fear. Concept of soul and reincarnation, evil, hell, and heaven are explained from both scientific and religious point of view. There is another chapter on: How our attitude and actions are related to pain and pleasure, love, friendship, and happiness.
This book is not about creating a new religion, sect or movement, but in fact emphasizes about loving every religion. An understanding of science, religion, and spirituality will put us on a road to love and happiness irrespective of our faith.
Book is now Available (for individuals and libraries) from Amazon and other Book Sellers, and the publisher who makes its books available in both the United States and Europe through all bookstores.
