reviews

The book is not only worth reading but also worth collecting.

Sudhanshuji Maharaj (founder of Vishwa Jagriti Mission [World Awareness Mission])

God and Destiny shows God, not the way to God; it does not speculate but prove what God is; and it gives not many but one, not imaginary but real, definition of God.

Sabhajit Mishra (active member, Indian Council of Philosophical Research; author)

. . . interesting . . . and . . . enriching.

Sagarika Ghose (senior editor, CNN-IBN; author)

Never before I was more convinced that the universe is completely deterministic.

R. A. Singh (former professor of physics)

. . . through logical and scientific arguments, God and Destiny has made it [the supreme knowledge] available to all.

Hariharkripalu Tripathi (Brahmarshi, a title for a saint of the highest category)

style and approach

God and Destiny takes people to God through steps. It is based on sound, unbiased, undistorted facts and logic. The book has been written for everyone to grasp. It is intended to be simple, fluent, clear, sharp, and conclusive. The style adopted in God and Destiny is me-to-you, the reader being addressed in the second person. Also, the author has written and added a poem at the beginning of every chapter to reflect and amplify its idea and mood.

first paragraph

Thousands of years have gone since God was first imagined. Since then the concept of God has been influencing unbelievably large portions of thoughts and activities of humanity. Your mind is full of innumerable stories, notions, and beliefs about him developed through human history, but he himself has remained a mystery for you. Countless people have tried to find him out but all in vain. The time of such ignorance is over. God is not interested in hiding anymore: now I shall let you know him and his true attributes and influence.

author

From very childhood Vivake Pathak has been taking keen interest in spiritual, philosophical, and religious topics. Steadily, the highest spiritual state became his aim, and at fourteen he started trying to achieve it sincerely. In his efforts he experimented with meditation, truth, desire, doubt, selfless work, ego, feelings, and so on. Through these efforts and experiments, aided by his aptitude in science, he realized the absolute predestinedness of the future when he turned twenty-one and found God when he was twenty-five. Once a brilliant mechanical engineer, he now works as a full time writer.
