Synthesizing Science and Spirituality Since 1974

Organizing conferences on science and religion

Over the last three decades , Bhaktivedanta Institute has been organizing international conferences and local symposiums on science and religion. The most recent international conference entitled "Life and Its Origin: Exploration from Scientific and Spiritual Traditions" was held last year in Rome, Italy.


Interviewing scientists and scholars around the world

The Director of Bhaktivedanta Institute, Dr. T. D. Singh, visits universities and research centers around the world and interviews leading scientists on the relation between their research and the absolute reality. He has interviewed many prominent Nobel Laureates, and scholars including Templeton Prize winner Dr. Charles Townes, and the pioneering physicist Sir Roger Penrose.

Publishing books on emerging fields at the confluence of science and religion

Conference proceedings, interviews with Nobel Laureates, the Institute's research work and journal Savijnanam: Scientific Exploration for a Spiritual Paradigm are published on an ongoing basis presenting and preserving important thoughts and quality dialogue beneficial for the exploration into the nature of reality.

Performing outreach

Bhaktivedanta Institute conducts many outreach programs to promote dialogue between science and religion. Perhaps the most unique is "Bhaktivedanta Institute on Wheels" - a team of students traveling in two buses to campuses across India educating both students and faculty on the importance of proper stewardship of science's accelerating influence, through multimedia presentations, seminars and publications.
