Chapter-wise Extracts of "God in Two Minutes"
These are extracts from my book "God
in Two Minutes" :

philosophy. It is plain and simple common sense
will see that we are endowed with phenomenal mental energy, and that it is
entirely in our hands to tap this energy
mathematical graphs and diagrams may give an impression that this book is
highly technical. Relax! This book is for the common man, not only for
philosophers or scientists
Physical World and Mental/ Spiritual World
combination of our feelings put us in a low energy position in the mental
space, whereas some other measure of our feelings may correspond to
Our mental state at any given time can be plotted as a unique point in the mental space. With every shift in our mood or in the intensity of our feelings, we would move to a new point and hence to a different state of mind ...
Physical Science and Mental/ Spiritual Science

Calculus proved inadequate to explain the spiritual phenomena ....
believe that there will be a completely new science and a new language, which
I call Mentomatics, that will explain the laws of mental space and unfold the
spiritual laws of the universe

within minutes or even seconds
What is God
God is reaching the high-energy zones in the mental space. That is where
Buddha reached, and so did Mahavir, Christ, and Mohammed ...
is a personification of our own mental energy, both latent and active - the
energy that is available within every human being. The concept of God is a
method to activate this energy

hygiene, to avoid disease and at the same time ensure compliance - they gave

world which is bleeding.
method of God and religion, which was devised with all noble intentions, has
become a curse to mankind. This is a result of a basic flaw in the method
Flaw in the Method - The Faith Trap

spirituality. Faith gives the edge to this best available tool today.
big mistake that man has made is that he did not realise that faith is also
the greatest flaw in this method. It is like a double-edged sword.
in our current method has blinded us from even attempting to look for a better
method to spirituality and to explain the spiritual laws.
Just like law of Gravitational forces, there exists a spiritual law. Scriptures have tried to explain the Spiritual Law by using the concept of God
The Greatest Human Mistake - Where we went wrong
kid needs a walker to learn to walk. Once it learns to walk, it discards the
walker. If it continues to hold on to the walker, it will not be able to walk
and Religion is the walker (given by the ancient learned saints) which helps
to toddle in the spiritual space. To sprint in this space, you need to cast it
GREATEST HUMAN BLUNDER" is that we did not discard the walker. We have
remained toddlers in spiritual space though we grew up

Other Consequences of The Great Human Mistake

but nobody dares to change them

inherent flaw - the tool requires that you have faith in it and faith blinds
Need For a Fresh Look

present beliefs have actually trapped us in a vicious circle, in a closed
world so that we can never look outside.

goal. The means are wrongly mistaken as the goal.
case of Religion, processes are followed without knowing the real purpose.
Conditions have changed, technology has changed, but we still believe in the
age old rituals without having a fresh look.
