Query: Journey of the Self definition... meaning... true
Journey of the Self is
described best in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! The concept of self... the concept of our soul atman...
the spirit within is detailed in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism from A to Z! Any human being world over desirous
of understanding what our true inner self is all about must assimilate teachings contained in sacred Bhagavad
Understanding our true inner self... understanding the reality of our soul atman is
necessitated for travellers of spiritual path... never those who remained engrossed in mundane affairs of life! For
those indulging in religion... teachings of Ramayana Hinduism suffices. For understanding our true inner self...
teachings of Bhagavad Gita as given by Lord Krishna are necessitated!
When young, I always wanted to
know what God is all about! Certainly, God was not to be found in clay idols kept in temples! There was something
more than meets the eye! I also wanted to know my true identity... the truth of my real self... my inner self...
the I within! How to find your inner self... was the biggest query of those
I subsequently realized that reading anything relating to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana would directly lead me to my true self and God Almighty! I only had to assimilate wisdom contained
in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna! In absence of wisdom
contained in Bhagavad Gita... one could never know our true self!
The definition of inner self apparently became clear when I realized that my true inner
self... my soul atman... the spirit within was directly connected to God Almighty! If a grain of sand is an
independent soul atman... the whole mound God Almighty! If a single piece of puzzle is an independent soul atman...
the completed puzzle God Almighty!
My true inner self was intimately connected to God Almighty! As detailed in Bhagavad Gita...
As a soul atman was God Almighty existing in miniscule form within the body! Rather I had
manifested human form as a tiny constituent of God Almighty! I was a cosmic super consciousness... much beyond
comprehension of most human beings!
I as a soul atman had undertaken the cosmic journey to work out my karma... remove dross
impurities within! It is through complex process of karma and evolution... I moved ahead in cosmic life cycle! If I
were to gain absolute purity... if I were to remove last traces of dross impurities within... indulgence in good
karma was an apparent necessity for the manifest physical form!
If I were to know the essence of life in body... if I were to truly realize my inner self...
if I wanted to reach stage of liberation... my indulgence in path of pure spirituality was an absolute must! It is
only by travelling spiritual path human beings finally unveiled pearls of wisdom hidden in sacred Bhagavad Gita of
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is the foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth! For
reaching God... for realizing our self within... every human being belonging to any religion, faith or belief had
to follow teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita... we had no other alternative! In present times one could not reach
God via path of religion... path of rituals!
Hinduism revelations... the sacred Vedas were of little help in realizing God... in knowing
our true inner self! The essence of all sacred scriptures existed in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! One single sacred
scripture contained all worth knowing on spiritual path. Knower of Bhagavad Gita finally became knower of all...
realized ones true self forever!
At any given moment of time human beings lived two lives... one by the manifest physical
self... an earthly sojourn limited by 70 to 80 years of life and the other by our soul atman... the spirit
within... that undertakes a journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million
If we desired reaching 8.4 millionth manifestation in present life span of 70 to 80 years... our
indulgence in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is an absolute must! It is Bhagavad Gita and only Bhagwad Gita that
makes one realize our true identity... our real self! For taking the inner journey... it is only Bhagwad Geeta that
finally comes to our rescue!
All man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and prophet Mohammed reached stage
of enlightenment after assimilating wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! The sacred Bhagwad Gita... the
doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in battle of Mahabharata is a complete document... sufficient to make
human beings reach end goal of life!
Realizing our true inner self means reaching stage of enlightenment forever! This stage can
only be reached after one annihilates karma forever! Realizing our true inner self and gaining enlightenment mean
the same! One finally reached 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in cosmic life cycle when human beings
finally after shedding mortal frame gained salvation (moksha)!
