Bhupinder Singh Tufaan-Nihang
Dear David, I was thrilled to receive the books and will
send a money order after the first of February. The package
has 2 addresses and would like to know just which address
I should use. I have a friend here that has been to India
and likes the lady "Amma" very much. He would open one book
at a time and begin to read. It was a thrill to read something
that is truly inspiring and applicable. Your father was
and is a man that I must say is the Rosetta stone I have
been searching for over 37 years. I have heard in the past
that Sikhism is a Scientific path, have read through many
libraries in many Sikh Gurdwara's and have found history
or peoples opinions about whatever; but nothing like your
father. Is there a chance I might have a photo of your father
in his WWI uniform?
Thank you so much, Your humble servant, Bhupinder Singh
attended Dr. Thind's lectures because he had a nice personality
and talked about important ideas. I was especially interested
when I heard him say, "You people don't need believe what
I say if you don't want to, but if you practice the Scientific
Meditation that I teach, you shall definitely obtain spiritual
results." So I made up my mind to meditate before each meal
and before going to bed.
subconscious mind was very much against my persistent wish
to make spiritual progress, so I told it mentally that it
was a mind and that no mind was more important than the
ego, or the Soul. I told my mind that if it continued to
brother me about meditation, I would withhold one or more
of its greatest pleasures for one week. It didn't believe
me, so I did withhold one of its pleasures, which was a
difficult thing to do, but I succeeded and it stopped resisting
meditation, which consisted of seeing a mental image of
Dr. Thind saying a mantra, and listening to the Spiritual
Sound must have had a very good influence on my Soul because
I became morally conscious and started feeling better. Better
ideas started to come into my mind, and people increased
their respect that they had for me.
Thind was correct in saying that his form of meditation
was elevating and scientific. I would never give up such
meditation. It was valuable and continues to be very valuable.
to the Spiritual Sound (Nãm)
gives the listener many benefits which are listed in Dr.
Thind's book, "The Pearl of Greatest Price."
Thind honored in a lecture given by Colonel G.B. Singh at
a USAMEDDAC & DENTAC event
in history, is one name that truly shines: Bhagat Singh
Thind, who was a catalyst in laying the foundations for
great successes that we often associate with the current
generation of Asian-Pacific Americans. Amazingly only a
very few people know of the contributions and struggles
of this remarkable man.
My name is Terrill S. Wyche. I am a student of Sant Mat
Science of the Soul. I was initiated by Mr. Thomas Ambrister
of Detroit, MI in January of 1998.
For years, I have practiced meditation, diet, and attended
Satsangh under Mr. Ambrister's teaching. Mr. Ambrister was
a student of your father, and he worked diligently to keep
your father's teachings alive.
I feel grateful that Dr. Thind's story has been kept alive
and that his literature is now available for all to read.
Your father lives in all of those whose lives he has touched.

I met your father in 1962 when he came to Portland for a month long series of talks at the New Heathman Hotel every nite.
He has been my inspiration ever since and I have his picture in my living room. To me he was such a noble and god-like man. He wrote me many encouraging letters on his travels - he was always so loving and thoughtful toward me.
Enclosed is $50.00 for the books, etc.
Thanks so much, David.
Thank you for everything. Dr. Thind's realized life is my
