Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream by Susheel Kamotra is a deep, thoughtful exposition of consciousness, self-awareness, and the philosophical relationship between spirituality and science. Told through the life of two participants, Tinu and Anjali, it explores their lives and the truths they discovered about themselves and life in general. Tinu, a successful engineer and project manager in Malaysia, has spent much of his life looking for the ultimate meaning of existence and understanding how we fit into this great cosmos we live in. Through the lens of time, Tinu can judge the tragedies and joys that have filled his life and come to an understanding of the purpose of each individual and how he or she fits into the eternal passage of history. In essence, Tinu begins to understand the elusive “theory of everything.” By exploring ancient Hindu texts and philosophies and seamlessly melding them into current cosmological and quantum thought, he can produce a New Theory of Consciousness which he seeks to bring to the world by developing and sharing a program of study designed to open everyone’s minds and insight into their true consciousness. The MezbahnSRP program aims to combine science with philosophy to achieve peace, freedom, and enduring happiness.

As someone who has spent much of the past few years reading and understanding various viewpoints on the purpose of life, eternal happiness, and awareness, I found Tinanjali to be a wonderful addition to my knowledge on these subjects. Susheel Kamotra correctly points out that most of the great philosophical thought and discussion that has influenced mankind, religion, and life practices for the past 5,000 years originally came from the Vedic ritualism and writings in the Indian subcontinent. I found the two characters that took us on this journey of discovery to be appealing and fascinating. I appreciated that Tinu had faced major hardships and tragedy at many points on his journey through life. I could certainly identify with his always seeming to be “one point” short of achieving. Whilst I will admit that some of the scientific and technical concepts went right over my head, I did grasp the most important elements presented and understood the key element was and always will be awareness. The SRP program does look fascinating and I will be looking into this in greater depth soon. What this book does highlight for me is the depth and truth of early Indian philosophy that we, in the West, have tended to disregard over the centuries. It is worth remembering that the wisdom brought to us through the Vedic teachings forms the basis of virtually every religion on the planet. There is power in these teachings. I loved this beautifully presented book and can highly recommend it to anyone seeking a new or enlightened path.

Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream is a work of non-fiction in the self-help, spirituality, and science subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience. Penned by author Susheel Kamotra, this creative and informative work follows the captivating journey of Tinu and Anjali, an Indian couple, as they embark on a Malaysian odyssey in 1995. Throughout their adventure, Tinu delves into top-down construction techniques and stumbles upon a groundbreaking revelation: the elusive ‘Theory of Everything.’ The narrative is rich with emotions, from love and drama to humor and poignant moments of reunion and tragedy. It culminates in the realization of a visionary dream: the titular Great Cosmic Lotus Dream.

Author Susheel Kamotra intricately weaves scientific knowledge, exploring the impact of general relativity and quantum mechanics on both the inner and outer worlds. Through profound exploration of ancient Hindu time systems and the introduction of a New Theory of Consciousness, the book delves into fundamental questions of science, consciousness, and the divine. I loved the creative way in which these ideas were put across, and the author’s unique narrative flow felt like a guru offering a strong storytelling ability with true wisdom at its core. The result is a brilliant narrative that offers a harmonious fusion of science and spirituality, inviting readers on a quest for self-realization and cosmic understanding that expands horizons and touches the soul. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Tinanjali to fans of creative non-fiction and spirituality works everywhere as a very special read indeed.

Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream by Susheel Kamotra is a sublimely ethereal, profoundly wise, and mystical autobiographical journey to self-realization. It is based on the ancient Hindu belief that “the whole world is one family” (passed down through oral tradition) and the modern idea that, through the integration of science and spirituality, human beings can achieve the ultimate balance of love, joy, and complete peace to become a self-realized professional (SRP). The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream is an expression of this divinely balanced state, where humans have aspirations toward God as they work to achieve a corresponding balance while being grounded here on earth. The concepts are lofty but also eloquent and simple at their core, the effect being that the reader feels enchanted as if by a tale full of ancient mystery and wonder. The story is expressed in the style of a parable, slightly formal but tremendously appealing, that makes new ideas and theories seem ancient, sacred, and timeless. The text is supported by colorful personal pictures detailing various stages of the author’s quest.

The title, Tinanjali, is an amalgamation of the names of the titular couple, Tinu and Anjali, whose love reflects the perfection of divine balance. As the two journey together toward their ultimate realization of the Great Cosmic Lotus Dream, their quest becomes a metaphor for our own earthly sojourns. The narrative is sweeping, the wisdom profound, the inspiration boundless, and the sense of hope eternal.
In addition to Susheel Kamotra’s masterful and compelling tale of discovery and growth, Tinanjali offers many value-added features, such as a brief author’s guide about how to get the most from reading the book, a corresponding course in enlightenment to help readers along the path of their journey toward becoming a Self-Realized Professional, and links to supporting material and web-based programs for further study. Tinanjali is presented in two parts: Tinanjali: The Song of Life and Tinanjali: The Seminar of Life. Readers will find each part equally rewarding in distinctly different ways. It is abundantly clear that Susheel Kamotra has crafted this marvelous epic tale and guide to higher consciousness out of a deep-seated love for all humanity, and humanity would do well to accept the gift.

Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream by Susheel Kamotra is a spiritual odyssey that offers a beautiful intersection between science and spirituality, a story about a couple's journey into unveiling the "Theory of Everything." The author crafts Tinu's journey with extraordinary care. Readers meet him as a young man growing up under the watchful eyes of a wise mother who gives him counsel. As he grows up, following the wisdom of his parents, he makes life-changing decisions to become one of the best skilled in top-down construction techniques. His journey to becoming a leader and a man who thrives in challenging environments is noteworthy. Readers will follow the characters through family dynamics, self-realization and personal growth, love and loss, and achievements resulting from the quest to grow.

Tinanjali is filled with spiritual insights about life, self-realization, and a groundbreaking explanation of the theory of everything. The author asks fundamental questions about life, like how we manage risks. While providing rational answers to such questions, he makes strong allusions to thinkers like Einstein and Mohamed. The unique perspective on the intersection of science and spirituality sets the book apart. Through the lens of general relativity, quantum mechanics, and ancient Hindu time systems, Susheel Kamotra explores fundamental questions about consciousness, time, and the nature of reality. Introducing a New Theory of Consciousness offers a fresh perspective that harmonizes with modern scientific data, inviting readers to contemplate the mysteries of the universe in new ways. Kamotra's prose is elegant and evocative, and while there is more “telling” than “showing” in the narrative, Tinu’s journey will captivate readers, each phase unveiling truths about life and personal growth. The book offers profound insights into the nature of existence and the interconnectedness of all things through intricate geometrical patterns and meditative reflections. The book is sprinkled with photographs that complement the narrative brilliantly. Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream will pull readers in with its spiritual currents and philosophical reflections, but Tinu’s story will entertain and instruct them.

Susheel Kamotra was a civil engineer by profession, but his life experiences made him probe deeper into human consciousness, striving to achieve self-realization. His ongoing research made him the proponent of the Universal Face Theory and the MezbahnSRP projects. Based in Malaysia, Kamotra, fondly known as Tinu, has been instrumental in creating several music videos, documentaries, and books with the help of his wife, Anjali. In Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream, Kamotra creates a conglomerate of Vedic knowledge and Quantum Physics theories. The first part offers us glimpses into the author’s life, and the second part discusses the uncanny similarities between the philosophies of various religions and the equations put forward by world-famous physicists.

I loved how Susheel Kamotra wove an intricate tapestry of his life, highlighting the profound moments and the cherished memories. The chapters, short and easy to read, left a lasting impression. Sketching the carefree days of childhood and the uncertain days of adulthood with equal clarity, Kamotra showed life's constant flow and ebb, underscoring both the highest and lowest points. His unique perceptions and efforts to find deeper meaning in everyday occurrences made his journey vibrant. While numerous photographs bore testament to his golden days, the take-home messages at the end of each chapter summed up the life lessons. I liked how Kamotra found parallels between scientific theories and the tenets of the major religions and found the prevailing concept of duality quite intriguing. The links to relevant YouTube videos and reference texts, the meticulously labeled charts and diagrams, and the index made for a holistic reading experience. The colorful mandala and floral patterns adorning the pages complemented the soothing tempo of the text. Tinanjali: The Great Cosmic Lotus Dream will be helpful to readers who desire to achieve self-realization. While possessing some basic knowledge about quantum physics could be beneficial in thoroughly understanding the concepts, keeping an open and receptive mindset is a must.
