Encounters with Spirit, Reflections From Science
by Rao Kolluru

  You are about to embark on a journey to the east end to the west, outward and inward, and beyond. Join the pilgrim as he encounters a sage by the sacred river in the Himalayas and finds enlightenment in the sage’s parables and vignettes. These tales, at once simple, revealing and inspiring, unveil mind and matter, nature and nurture, mindfulness and meditation, duties and rewards, life and death, the individual and the universal, the finite and the infinite.

The author reflects on these tales in the context of environmental biology, public health, astrophysics, and related disciplines, and offers practical guidance for everything from business to wellness, all the while separating science from nonsense with irreverent humor.
