Query: How to Realise God within
realize god within you is not as simple as it seems! Realizing God in present life time is equivalent of
reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! Realizing God... self realization... God realization... all
means the same! The moment our soul atman... the spirit within gains absolute purity... one finally realized
God within one's
Realization of God is an inherent process! Any human being world over by following spiritual
path diligently can gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)! God realization means
removing last traces of dross impurities within our soul atman... annihilating karma to zero! The moment our soul
atman gained absolute purity... one finally realized God for ever!
For realizing God
within us one needs travelling path of absolute truthfulness always and ever! Truthfulness makes us establish
contact with our soul atman... the spirit within! Prompted by the dictates of my soul atman I finally realized God
in 1993 at 37 years of age! This is my last manifestation... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... last in cosmic life
Having gained absolute purity... having become a pure soul atman I have nothing more to
achieve on spiritual path! Having reached cosmic end of life... the moment I leave my mortal frame... I shall
attain salvation (moksha)! For realizing God I had to cut across shackles of karma... by establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind!
Control over five senses and mind in the present materialistic environment is very difficult
to achieve but not impossible! One who demonstrates willpower exhibited by Swami Vivekananda can realize God within
one's lifetime. It is a different matter that Swami Vivekananda could not realize god in his lifetime!
The goal of Swami Vivekananda never goes gaining enlightenment... reaching God in present life
time. Swami Vivekananda always wanted to serve the community to its best! Had Swami Vivekananda desired realizing
God in his lifetime... he could have easily done so under the able guidance of his spiritual master (preceptor) Sri
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa realized God in his lifetime and so did Maharishi Ramana! In the
last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over only two persons succeeded in realizing God...
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Prime reason why realizing God is not that easy as many people
My personal experience of God explicitly makes it clear... one could not realize God without
establishing absolute control over five senses and mind! The moment absolute control over five senses is
established... control over mind comes easily! Remaining immersed in rituals (path of religion) one could never
realize God in one's lifetime!
For realizing God... undertaking spiritual journey is the only route one could never do without!
Those who thought otherwise would never again anything in life related to spirituality! Giving impetus to material
clinging is not a sign of spiritual path! For travelling spiritual path one needs indulgence in sacred Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism... never Ramayana!
The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of
Mahabharata! The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is a unique scripture of its kind following which any human being
world over could easily realize God in one's lifetime! The 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita sufficed
for human beings to realize God.
God Almighty is not the form of human beings! God Almighty... a cluster of all purified souls
atmans in cosmos at a given point of time is a colossal magnanimous source of cosmic energy... much beyond
comprehension of most human beings. God Almighty has always remained Nirakaar in form (i.e. having no
Realizing God in Nirakaar form is the ultimate crux of life! Going to a Temple church or mosque
does not serve any purpose. One could not realize God by going to temples, churches or mosques! One needs
establishing absolute control over karma for experiencing God in one's lifetime! God Almighty ordained a journey of
1.1 million manifestations in human form to establish absolute control over karma.
In this period of 1.1 million manifestations in human form... one is expected to reach stage
of enlightenment and salvation! But there is one problem! The present physical manifest life is limited to present
earthly sojourn! We do not know what form our soul atman manifests in the next journey of life! It is in our
interest to travel spiritual path now.
As per Bhagavad Gita our soul atman... the spirit within is the absolute master and
controller of human body and not vice versa! It is our soul atman that is on its journey of 8.4 million
manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years! Of 8.4 million manifestations on the whole... the
initial 7.3 million manifestations by our soul atman occur in insect, plant and animal life... in the remaining 1.1
million manifestations in human form one reaches cosmic end of life!
As the journey of life belonged to our soul atman... human life is but a temporary sojourn in
the vast expanse of cosmic life! Compared to earthly sojourn of 96.4 million years in the life of a soul atman...
what value of 70 to 80 years of life in human form! Still, human form is highest manifest stage in cosmic life
cycle... it is only in human form our soul atman finally gains release from cycle of birth and death
At every stage of life as a human being... we must assist our soul atman in reaching cosmic
end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... last in cosmic life cycle! Whether we do it now willingly in
present life is up to us. Only a serious seeker of spirituality travels spiritual path to realize God within one's
Those who are not serious about realizing God in present life time must never dwell on path
of pure spirituality! I have come across many who started their journey of spiritual path and left midway... some
after five years... some after 10... Others after 15 years! Such people finally lose interest in life and become a
victim of depression!
Spiritual path must be travelled with utmost caution! For living the present earthly domain of
70 to 80 years... teachings of Ramayana sufficed. Only if our goal of life was realizing God in present life
time... one need assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Spiritual path is
best travelled following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita.
If one asked... step by step process of self realization... there is never a fixed reply!
Why? As when human beings... as many different paths to God Almighty can there be! The path to God Almighty is not
straight and clear... prime reason why one needs indulgence in texts of sacred scriptures for realizing
Sacred scriptures are many... prime reason why people world over confused what to read... and
whatnot! Having realized God in 1993 one thing is absolutely clear... by following teachings contained in sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism any human being world over could realize God in one's lifetime!
Furthermore reading anything related to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana is of
great help! Why not follow spiritual masters who have already reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in
If we ask how many self realized masters existed in world today... it can never be more than
one or two! Why? What if 50 self realized masters existed in world today... how one could know whom to follow and
who not! The whole humanity would get confused over the matter... prime reason why at a given moment of time there
never were more than two self realized masters in the world!
Mahavira and Gautama Buddha were contemporaries and so were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Apart from establishing absolute control over five senses and mind... one also needs
practising absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation to reach God in one's lifetime! Why
the practice of absolute celibacy is necessitated on spiritual path? Practice of absolute celibacy for 12 years in
continuation leads to full awakening of Kundalini Shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of
The rise of kundalini energy is gradual! It can never be accomplished within a timeframe of 70
to 80 years of human life... prime reason why God Almighty ordained a journey of 1.1 million manifestations in
human form... an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years to reach God! Only an ardent seeker of spirituality
realizes God in one's lifetime.
I started in search of God 11 years of age. By 30, my simple desire wish turned to firm
conviction... no matter what in this very life I shall see and meet God! 25 years of yoga meditation I finally
landed myself in the laps of God Almighty! This is my last manifestation on mother earth... the 8.4 millionth
manifestation! Nowhere to go further I shall attain salvation (moksha) moment I leave my mortal frame!
My experiences of spiritual journey are varied and at times incomprehensible! Most
experiences of spiritual path could not be expressed in words! By remaining truthful all my life... I could hear
the sweet small inner voice of my soul atman that always guided me on the right path! Those who pursued material
riches of life never reach God in their lifetime.
After death of mortal body what transfers to next manifestation if the residual balance of karma
of present life! The closing balance of present life becomes the opening balance for next manifestation! If our
karma of present life demands our soul atman manifesting form of a laborer in next manifestation... one could not
be born a Prince!
Why indulge in negative karma... materialistic riches and mar our future! Indulgence in
positive karma... good karma is the call of day! Those who truly reached God in their lifetime were those who truly
practiced sunny disposition and godly thinking all the time! Indulging in vice one could never reach God Almighty
in one's lifetime!
For reaching God one need not indulge in Vedas... Hinduism revelations! The abstract of all
four primary Vedas... Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda necessitated on spiritual path already
exists in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in battle of
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 world over understood the gist of Bhagavad Gita! The contents of Bhagavad Gita can never be understood
literally... it demands reading in between the lines!
Whole of my life I have never read Bhagavad Gita yet, the contents of Bhagavad Gita are clear
to me like ABCD... it is as if I had dictated the contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my previous
There is no dearth of self-declared realized masters existing on mother earth! Those who
failed to understand the primary definition of spirituality... those who failed to make a distinction between
spirituality and religion... those who did not understand what God Almighty was all about... can such people ever
be expected to disseminate jnana (wisdom) to world community?
Spiritual stalwarts like Sri Aurobindo and Acharya Rajneesh failed to realize God in their
lifetime! Although goal of life for Sri Aurobindo was realization of God... he candidly admitted in his writings
that he failed to reach God in his lifetime!
Acharya Rajneesh (née Osho) in the later stages of his life mixed free sex with yoga! So much
so that he was unceremoniously turned out of United States of America and no country in the world was willing to
take him. Finally his own motherland India came to his rescue! Acharya Rajneesh died brokenhearted!
Truly sex has no place on path of pure spirituality! Sexual indulgence can never lead to
realizing God in one's lifetime! Extreme instances of ecstasy felt during sexual indulgence does not mean reaching
stage of enlightenment... or full awakening of kundalini shakti! It is only by transmuting sexual energy human
beings finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!
Maintaining a sexual relationship on path of God realization is a taboo... something abhorred
and not advocated by sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! If we developed a permanent leak in our source of cosmic
energy... one could never reach stage of God realization in present life time! Indulgence in sex never leads to
full awakening of kundalini shakti!
Practice of absolute celibacy demands our establishing absolute control over sexual
indulgence! For reaching God Almighty one needs establishing absolute control over mundane affairs of life!
Practising vice... indulging in sex... mesmerized by glare of materialistic riches... do we ever expect realizing
God in present life time?
Realizing God in present life demands highest level of patience, persistence and perseverance
that can ever be practiced by human beings! Mere indulgence in sacred scriptures is not much help on path of pure
The moment by practice of absolute celibacy full awakening of kundalini occurred... Sahasra
Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in our brain behind forehead opened fully... one immediately gained
enlightenment... reached God Almighty! To become an enlightened one... realize God in present life time...
following dictates of life given in Bhagavad Gita is of great help!
God Almighty is not all about sacred scriptures! God Almighty is found in tidbits of life! By
working for community... indulging in good karma... positive karma human beings finally emancipated forever from
cycle of birth and death... finally gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) at the end of journey!
