Book Review | “WHAT IS DIVINE ENERGY” THE POWER OF MANAGING THE SCIENCE OF EVERYTHING (IN A NUTSHELL) by VIPIN GUPTA | The Literature TodayFebruary 5, 2021
Why is a universe of believers so devoted to a well-endowed God who is making the believers faithfully fulfill what HE wishes them to? Do we have the power of managing the science of everything?
The author, Vipin Gupta, explores and ponders, and validates upon this thought. This book, or more appropriately this project, is spread over 478 pages which are bifurcated in 16 broad headings or chapters. The book was released in January 2021 and is just off the racks, like hotcakes.
The author begins his thesis with an introduction that explains his motivation behind the project. He aims to discover the vastly integrated processes inside nature. The purpose of this project, spread over a series of twelve books is to provide evidence and to highlight diverse purposes of one’s life and the diverse paths to eternity. This book is the first part of the series illuminating the idea of divine energy. The other ideas brainstormed in the upcoming editions are; the present reality, consciousness, para- consciousness, self-awareness, human factor, trading factor, cultural factor, exchange factor, and technological growth.
This first book, What is divine energy, introduces the essential vocabulary for knowing life’s truth and illuminates its homologous constructs and analogies, both from the diverse disciplines of modern science and India’s ancient wisdom dispersed across numerous manuscripts. It takes a causal, sequential, and consequential approach, highlighting the chronological sequence of a cell’s thirty-three phase development.
At the outset, one must appreciate that an atom is a fundamental building-bloc of everything in the universe. The entire universe starts with a single atom. Therefore, each atom has a potential of the entire cosmic universe, both the present astrological universe as well as the futuristic zodiac universe, that shapes the future of the present astrological universe.

For understanding the unit value of the divine energy, one needs to develop a clarified consciousness of the factors necessary for planning, programming, and performing normative consciousness. Ten factors are necessary: the worker, the knower, the manifestor, the creator, the perpetrator, the destroyer, the illuminator, the liberator, the devoted, and the devotee. The unit value of divine energy comprises ten factors.
The Unit Value of Human-effect explores Human Force as the Modifier of the Divine Energy. Then, an Entity as the Self-incubating Octave involves understanding the meaning of the Entity, the Spirit, and the Soul. Absolute Realm, without the entity, includes The Absolute Realm as the Power of Managing the Science of everything. Then Management Methods for Managing the Divine Energy within Self are discussed upon.
The author says The Easy Solution for One to be the Scientist is in investigating the Science of Everything. Curiosity is the key to discovering the secrets of life and unearthing the full human potential. Although not an easy read with respect to the language and the detailed information emancipating from the thesis but it’s a treasure house of information for anybody seeking it. This is the first installment in the series of 12 books and the author himself, reiterates that the beginning is always a bit difficult, the start is always tough, similarly, the first book in this series may seem like too much to grasp but gradually the intensity and quantity of information will simmer down as we go along the series.
