Query: Moksha Hinduism Definition... What does Moksha mean in
Moksha Hinduism definition as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is simple... when our soul
atman... the spirit within finally reached stage of liberation (termed Mukti in Hinduism)... when our soul
atman finally regained its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form... this stage when human beings
after gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) left mortal frame is termed stage of moksha (salvation)! A soul
is termed atman in
Moksha Hinduism definition can only be understood by one who travels path of pure
spirituality... path of unknown... path of our soul atman... the spirit within! Moksha Hinduism is not attained by
human form... the human being! Only when human beings left mortal frame... that state is termed moksha (salvation)
Reaching stage of moksha salvation announced end of cosmic journey by our soul atman... the spirit within! As
detailed in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism journey of life always belonged to our soul atman... and never the manifest
human form! It is not within the capability of a human being to manifest a soul atman. Our soul atman is the
absolute master and controller of human body!
Ever since a soul atman started its cosmic journey it got mired in impurities similar as a
rolling ball gathers moss. To cleanse self of dross impurities within... to work out its karma starts cosmic life
cycle of every soul atman! Sooner life supporting planets like mother earth evolved in cosmic system... souls
atmans started manifesting life forms!
Every soul atman initially manifested form of amoeba (single cell formation)... the first
manifestation in cosmic life cycle! Subsequently it evolved into multi-cell formation... then insect life, plant
life, animal life and finally forms of human beings! Every soul atman in its lifetime manifested a maximum of 8.4
million bodies that entailed an earthly journey of 96.4 million years!
The initial 7.3 million manifestations by our soul atman occurred in insect, plant and animal
form! In the remaining 1.1 million manifestations in human form (that entailed an earthly journey of 12.4 million
years)... one is expected to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally moksha (salvation)! Moksha
salvation Hinduism announced reaching 8.4 millionth manifestation!
The journey of spiritual path... the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya) and finally moksha
Hinduism is not that easily covered. Human beings need establishing absolute control over five senses and mind. In
the present materialistic environment... expecting travel of spiritual path seems next to impossible! Most human
beings at the most indulged in path of religion... path of rituals!
Dominated by a bloated ego (termed Aham in Hinduism) human beings pursued material riches of
life! Even though Bhagavad Gita explicitly states that nothing material could be carried to next life still, most
human beings indulged in material pursuits of life that carried no meaning in spiritual world. When all shall be
left behind after death of mortal body... why pursue and delay the journey!
The sooner we covered journey of spiritual path... better for us! The present earthly
manifestation is limited to one life alone... the present human form! As we do not know what form our soul atman
manifests in next life... it is better we travel spiritual path now! Our destiny... our future is directly governed
by karma performed by us in present life!
If we truly desire pursuing God in present life time our travelling spiritual path was
necessitated! In present times, Kali Yuga... dark age... the metal age one could not reach God Almighty via path of
religion... path of rituals! No matter how many times we went to temples, churches or mosques... no matter how many
dips in sacred river Ganges one took... on spiritual scale all religious achievements leveled to zero!
It is only by taking inner journey... the journey of our soul atman... Human beings finally
crossed all barriers of ephemeral life... reaching stage of enlightenment and moksha (salvation) in end!
As per Bhagavad Gita we are not a manifest physical body that has a soul atman within! As per
Bhagavad Gita we are a soul atman... a cosmic consciousness on its life cycle of 8.4 million manifestations... an
earthly domain of 96.4 million years! Reaching manifest stage of human beings is the highest form of life on mother
It is only in human form our soul atman finally reached cosmic end of life... 8.4 millionth
manifestation... when human beings gained enlightenment and moksha salvation! The realization that we are a soul
atman comes by travelling spiritual path... never path of religion... path of rituals! For removing dross
impurities within our soul atman in totality our indulgence in good karma... positive karma all the time was
Moksha in Hinduism is equivalent of Nirvana in Buddhism! Moksha is also termed Mukti...
permanent liberation from cycle of birth and death forever!
For travelling spiritual path... for reaching God in present life time... contemplation on God
Almighty was the only way out! Unless we assimilated pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... unless we
contemplated on underlying wisdom contained in sacred scriptures of various religions of world... one never reached
stage of enlightenment and finally moksha salvation!
The path of self enquiry... path of Neti (not this, not this) as preached and advocated by
Maharishi Ramana is a sure shot method of reaching God in present life. Neti (not this, not this) is best practiced
in shavasna pose of yoga (the dead pose)! For annihilating karma to zero... for establishing absolute control over
five senses and mind... path of yoga meditation was necessitated!
Meditation never meant sitting in a dark room and concentrating on center of a dimly lit
bulb! Meditation is cutting across all shackles of ephemeral life... reducing our karma to zero! One could negate
karma to zero only by indulgence in positive karma... good karma all the time! Furthermore path of absolute
truthfulness needed to be travelled all the time.
Unless we were truthful all the time... we would not succeed in establishing absolute control
over five senses and mind! In my 54 years of spiritual travail I have yet to find a person who was all the time
truthful... no matter what! For most people world over family life... achievements of materialistic world mattered
most! First came their family and then path of spirituality!
Can such people ever be expected to reach God in their lifetime?
God is never found in temples, churches or mosques! God Almighty is always found in daily
tidbits of life! Serving the community to its best is what charity is all about! Donations carried no meaning in
spiritual world! For travelling spiritual path one needed to be honest from within! Mere desires and wishes... ifs
and buts carried no meaning in spiritual world!
The path of spirituality must always be travelled at an early age! Most human beings world
over left spiritual travel for later stages of life! Spirituality is cutting across all barriers of karma!
Remaining indulged in karma all the time one never reached spiritual end of life... stage of enlightenment and
Many human beings out of frustration... depression tried committing suicide with hope of getting
a better birth in next life! These poor people failed to realize that journey of life was always governed by
inscrutable laws of karma! As we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more! Our indulgence in sin in present
life would result in our soul atman manifesting lower form of life in next manifestation!
Must we ever indulge in something that retards our spiritual journey! But on mother earth...
clinging to material possessions most human beings always indulged in whimsical routines of life that not only
retarded their spiritual journey but also became a cause for intermittent heartburns! Earthly possessions truly
carried no meaning in spiritual world. Why?
As the journey of life always belonged to our soul atman... one is always expected to indulge
in karma... Nishkama karma way of life! As our soul atman is the absolute master and controller of human body...
fruits of karma performed by human beings always belonged to our soul atman... never the manifest human form! Human
beings clinging to material possessions carried no meaning!
Indulging in life nishkama karma way... King Janaka finally gained enlightenment in his lifetime
(King Janaka was father of Sita in Ramayana)!
JRD Tata... popularly called Jeh... the man of steel was a Karma Yogi par excellence!
Throughout his life JRD Tata lived as a true Karma Yogi offering fruits of karma performed to God Almighty all the
time. JRD practiced nishkama karma way of life until the end! The excellence of JRD emanated from his underlying
faith in God Almighty!
JRD Tata always believed that everything belonged to God Almighty and one was only a trustee
of God! JRD Tata always acted as a true trustee... taking care of things on behalf of God Almighty! At no stage of
life JRD Tata ever considered Tata Empire as ones own. This is in contrast to present scion of Tata industry...
Ratan Tata who acts more like a manager than a trustee!
Living life nishkama karma way... establishing absolute control over five senses and mind...
practising Brahmacharya Vrata (absolute celibacy) for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation... any human
being world over could awaken kundalini shakti fully! Full awakening of kundalini results in full opening of
Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) in our brain!
One immediately gains enlightenment... became an enlightened one... a bodhi... a Jina... a
Mahavira! The enlightened one... moment one left mortal frame attained stage of moksha salvation
The definition of moksha salvation is best detailed in Hinduism scriptures! Assimilating
pearls of wisdom contained in 700 shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita... any human being world over can easily reach
stage of self realization... God realization... enlightenment and finally moksha (salvation) thus bringing cosmic
journey of soul atman to an end!
The moment human beings left things to next life... one lost track of life! We as a human being
are the governor of present life... the absolute master and controller of present destiny! As journey of life
belonged to our soul atman... our indulgence in next life carried no meaning! Indulgence in good karma... positive
karma in present life ensured happiness most of time!
Why indulge and lose everything! Every moment is precious. By taking control of destiny early
in life human beings by travelling spiritual path reached God Almighty in their lifetime!
