The Templeton Prize winners should always be on a Theosophists' list of must reads. They are at the forefront of Science, Philosophy and Religion.

About the Templeton Prize

"What these remarkable people have shared is a commitment to exploring one or more of the Big Questions at the core of the John Templeton Foundation’s mandate. All have been seekers of wisdom, humbled by the complexity of the human condition but determined to chart a path forward with their ideas and deeds. Some Templeton Prize laureates have demonstrated the transformative power of virtues like love, forgiveness, gratitude, and creativity. Others have provided new insights into scientific or philosophical problems relating to infinity, ultimate reality, and purpose in the cosmos. Still others have used the analytical tools of the humanities to provide new perspectives on the spiritual dilemmas of modern life. The Prize seeks and encourages breadth of vision, recognizing that human beings take their spiritual bearings from a range of experiences."

Note: if you pay attention you will see the interplay of the the typography for Traditional Theosophy; primarily the interactions and assimilation between the Divine, the Mind and the Nature of the physical world.

The Templeton Prize 2019:

Templeton's Prize is the closest to a Theosophy Prize as I have ever found. The 2019 prize is interesting. It reads much like one of the TS objects.  The Link is below.



WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, PA. – Marcelo Gleiser, theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and a leading proponent of the view that science, philosophy, and spirituality are complementary expressions of humanity’s need to embrace mystery and the unknown, was announced today as the 2019 Templeton Prize Laureate.
