Query: Personal Experience with
God... Spiritual Enlightenment
Personal experience with god... personal experience of god
can only be exercised by one who travels spiritual path... never path of religion... path of rituals!
Personal experience of God is not an easy thing to achieve in a limited time span of 70 to 80
As ordained by God Almighty the circle of life completes in maximum 8.4 million
manifestations of which initial 7.3 million manifestations occurred in insect, plant and animal life and in the
remaining 1.1 million manifestations in human form we are expected to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha)!
Reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya) meant coming face-to-face with God
almighty... having a personal experience with God every second of life! A personal experience of God can only be
exercised by negating karma to zero. By indulging in good karma... positive karma all the time... serious seekers
of spirituality finally reached 8.4 millionth
When 11 years of age I had a deep-rooted desire to see and meet God in this very life. By 13
years of age my simple desire turned to firm conviction... come whatever may in this very life I shall see and meet
God! 25 years of yoga meditation... I finally experienced God Almighty in all its cosmic glory! Since then I am in
permanent communion with God Almighty every second of life.
On path of pure spirituality one can experience intermittent glimpses of domain of God
Almighty but a permanent personal experience with God is only exercised when human beings reached stage of self
realization... God realization... termed enlightenment in English! For reaching stage of enlightenment one needs
establishing absolute control over five senses and mind!
Furthermore practising absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation human
beings finally awakened their Kundalini Shakti fully... the coiled serpentine energy lying dormant in base of
spine! Full awakening of kundalini finally resulted in opening of Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing
in our brain behind forehead.
Opening of Sahasra Pushpa announced one reaching stage of enlightenment forever. Before
gaining enlightenment human beings used their brain one percent... 99% portion of brain always remaining dormant!
The moment one becomes an enlightened one... a Jina... a bodhi... our brain became hundred percent active! One
finally becomes knower of all.
On path of pure spirituality personal experiences with God can be many but it is only after
full awakening of Kundalini Shakti... one reached stage of self realization... enlightenment!
If someone asked me... how to experience god in our day to day life in Hinduism... my reply
would be... by travelling spiritual path... path of unknown that directly led to God Almighty! People say spiritual
path is full of thorns... my personal experience says spiritual path is made of thorns! One must always tread
spiritual path with caution. Why?
I know many people who started their spiritual journey with much vigor and faith in God
Almighty! But most of them left midway... some after 10 years... others after 15! These ignorant seekers of
spirituality failed to realize that in the domain of God Almighty there never are free lunches. Everything results
from karma performed!
Spirituality demands highest level of patience, persistence and perseverance that could ever
be practiced by human beings! Path to God Almighty is straight and clear yet, most human beings world over failed
to realize vital statistics of spiritual path. God was not to be found in temples, churches or mosques! God
Almighty can never be reached via path of religion... path of rituals!
For knowing our true inner self... for realizing our soul atman... the spirit within... for
reaching God in present life time travelling uncharted path of spirituality is an absolute must! The path of
spirituality is best travelled following teachings contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism forms summum bonum of spirituality... epitome of spiritual pursuit!
It is following dictates contained in Bhagavad Gita I finally realized God in 1993 at 37
years of age! Throughout my life I followed the path undertaken by Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi
Ramana... the only two people who gained enlightenment in the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people
existing world over!
There are no shortcuts to path of pure spirituality yet, following teachings of Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa... Maharishi Ramana any human being world over could gain enlightenment! Why not follow the
beaten path undertaken by enlightened ones!
The gist of original Bhagavad Gita with English transliteration is available for mere $.60
(rupees 30/=) at most railway stations of India or directly from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India... still, how many
people were able to follow gist of Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in battle of
Mahabharata! As per my knowledge... hardly one or two persons world over ever followed Bhagavad Gita truthfully and
The teachings of Bhagavad Gita can never be assimilated literally... it demands reading in
between the lines. For experiencing God in our life one needs following path of absolute truthfulness always and
ever! Not a single lapse on path of absolute truthfulness is permitted.
Prompted by a bloated ego... pursuing material riches of life how many people world over
truthfully followed path of spirituality! In my 54 years of spiritual travail I have yet to find a person who could
explain to me meaning of God Almighty, definition of karma, meaning of dharma, the definition and purport of
meditation yoga... the concept of celibacy and kundalini awakening!
Unless we clearly understood the underlying meaning of spiritual terminology... one could never
have a personal experience of god! When Swami Vivekananda approached Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa for a personal
experience of God... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa put his leg on the shoulder of Swami Vivekananda! Swami Vivekananda
could not believe what he saw.
He was totally mesmerized by experience of God as shown by Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa! But
this was only a temporal experience of God Almighty! As Swami Vivekananda did not want to realize God in his
lifetime... he never asked Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa for that experience of God again! Swami Vivekananda only
wanted to confirm the presence of God in cosmic system.
His interest in the field of spirituality lay elsewhere. Swami Vivekananda wanted to serve
the community to its best and in that he excelled!
By travelling path of absolute truthfulness... path of spirituality as detailed in sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... by establishing absolute control over five senses and mind... practising absolute
celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation any human being world over could experience
Experiencing God on a permanent basis means one reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) forever! Having reached end of cosmic life... 8.4 millionth manifestation... nowhere to go further... an
enlightened one finally attains salvation (moksha) the moment one leaves the mortal frame! The liberated soul atman
finally entered kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)!
Spiritual masters like Paramhansa Yogananda... Acharya Rajneesh... Sri Aurobindo
intermittently experienced God in their life but none of them succeeded in experiencing God permanently! All failed
to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime! True seekers of spirituality never hesitate in
highlighting their failures of spiritual path!
Sri Aurobindo candidly admitted in his writings that he failed to reach stage of self
realization in his lifetime! So was the case with Acharya Rajneesh and also Paramhansa Yogananda! The path of
spirituality is travelled gradually step-by-step! It is only by transmuting sexual energies human beings finally
transcended all barriers of ephemeral life... reaching God in the end!
