Vijai K. Tiwari
Born and raised in India as a Hindu, Vijai K. Tiwari immigrated to the United
States in the early seventies. After receiving his master’s degrees in Mathematics
and Computer Science, he spent several years working in the technical sector until
he joined The Boeing Company at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida during the
late eighties, where he launched his career in space technology. Since that time,
his numerous professional accomplishments have been in NASA-related projects in
support of both Shuttle and International Space Station programs.
Though the author has never been a strong religious adherent, when life presented
him with questions that a rote reliance on conventional dogma could not address
in any meaningful sense, he undertook a search for those answers that could be
found nowhere else but in the sanctuary of God. The truth of this singular
(and at the same time perennial) awakening has become the theme of Vijai’s writings.
The author believes that institutionalized religion actually offers very little
for man in its currently misappropriated and misunderstand form, where it is,
in fact, frequently a hindrance to the spiritual journey. While pedestrian
religiosity can offer a specious consolation, of sorts, it is not the path the
great sages and saints have traveled before us, and it seldom leads to our
true spiritual destination--enlightenment and liberation.
Though in many religious traditions the human life given to us by the Creator
famously includes “freewill,” ironically, the pathway to Salvation through
divine grace cannot be entered upon lest man first be willing to fully--indeed
joyfully--surrender his life to God.
The writings of the author, Vijai Tiwari, are not driven by any particular
theology but by the understanding that God has bestowed upon him through
His Grace. They are the documentation of one man’s spiritual experiences
through divine revelation and intimate communion with God.
His books, 'The Divine View of Holy Gita',
'In Search for the Truth',
'The Liberation of Soul',
and 'Karmic Cycle',
are very easy in their expressions, and yet they convey the deepest meaning of
the word of God as revealed in Holy Gita, Holy Vedas
and Upanishads, Holy Ramayana, Holy Bible and others
scriptures. Surely they speak of the Truth as it is and without any distortion,
and yet their delivery is overwhelmingly simple and straightforward.
