Aging is a uniquely personal as well as a universal experience. Everyone undergoes aging, whether a Hindu, Muslim or Christian; male or female; white or black; rich or poor; American, Indian or European. Bounded by birth at one end and terminated by death at the other, aging is an integral part of our life. Today, there is tremendous research trying to understand the mechanisms of aging. There are almost as many theories about the aging process as there are researchers working in the field. From exploring the use of hormone therapy and antioxidants to extending the human life span, aging, however, still remains far from our comprehension. Vedanta, the topmost scientific and philosophical treatise of ancient Indian spiritual and cultural heritage, has immense insights to provide towards aging, dying and end-of-life care for humanity throughout the world. In this volume, the author, Dr. T. D. Singh, a visionary who himself witnessed a wide spectrum of life, from his serious Ph.D. research days to deep Vedantic engagements, presents these invaluable insights in the light of modern developments. The volume, written in an easily accessible language for the scientist and layman alike, will be a great source of inspiration and wisdom into this timeless topic.
