Self Realisation Experience|
Self realisation is not something gained physically by human beings... it
is realising our true nature... our true inner self... our soul atman... the spirit within! Self realisation
experience can only be realised by one who travelled path of pure spirituality... path of jnana yoga... absolute
wisdom as ordained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Self realisation experience is always realized
individually... it could never be imparted by one human being to another... no matter what!
Those who claimed that self realization
could be imparted in hours... days or months were total ignorants on path of pure spirituality. Such religious
preachers never benefited mankind ever. Working for their own vested interests... preaching half baked religious
theories most of time... such practitioners of religious path never came to understand what spirituality was all
about. Truly... path of spirituality was not that easily traveled.
Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and
Prophet Mohammed... all reached stage of self realisation experience by their own individual efforts. As stated
in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism, unless we cut across shackles of karma forever... one could never
experience... reach stage of self realization in present life! Cutting across shackles of karma was not that
easy... prime reason why God Almighty ordained a long journey of 1.1 million manifestations in human form before
human beings reached stage of self realisation... god realization... enlightenment!
In spiritual terminology self realisation...
god realization and enlightenment... all meant the same. To reach stage of self realisation one had to follow
teachings contained in 700 shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita. In absence of teachings contained in Bhagavad
Gita... none world over could realize god... realize self... reach stage of enlightenment! The teachings of
Bhagavad Gita initially seemed difficult but for an ardent seeker of spirituality... nothing was impossible! If
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana did it... so could others!
Self realisation experience meant practising
absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation. Practice of celibacy for a minimum period of
12 years was necessitated for full awakening of Kundalini Shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant
in base of spine. Furthermore, total control over five senses and mind was necessitated to reach stage of self
realisation... god realization... or enlightenment! In the present materialistic age... establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind almost seemed impossible!
In the present religious scenario... many
religious preachers day and night preached half baked theories to gullible masses without ever understanding
what self realisation... god realisation was all about! One who was as serious as Swami Vivekananda was fit
enough to travel spiritual path to reach stage of self realisation... god realization! Those who do not possess
willpower exhibited by Swami Vivekananda were incompetent to undertake spiritual journey as mandated in Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism.
Stage of self realisation... God realisation
meant our soul atman... the spirit within gaining absolute purity forever. In absence of dross impurities within
soul atman, the need for a soul atman to manifest another body now ceased to exist. The purified soul atman...
the liberated soul atman... after human beings attained salvation moksha finally entered abode of God... kingdom
of God... termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism... a point of no return! In Hinduism a soul is termed
Essence of self realisation can be easily
understood by assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. The path of spirituality is
always traveled all alone. In present times... in present Kali Yuga... to gain self realisation, god realisation
meant pursuing path undertaken by Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... the only two spiritual
stalwarts who gained self realisation... God realisation in the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people
existing world over.
In the last about hundred years...
Paramhansa Yogananda... Sri Aurobindo... Swami Sivananda... all tried their best to reach stage of self
realisation but none succeeded in their efforts. Over 3000 essays articles existed on my various websites
fathoming which any human being world over could easily reach stage of self realisation... god realisation! But
how many human beings world over truly made efforts to travel spiritual path sincerely and
In my 50 years of spiritual travail I have
yet to come across a person who could detail to me meaning of spirituality... self realisation... karma...
dharma ... God Almighty! Most human beings preferred path of religion than path of pure spirituality... never
realising that God Almighty could not be reached via path of religion... path of rituals! In the present
scientific age... God Almighty could never be reached via path of bhakti yoga alone.
Path of bhakti yoga... path of religion
demands absolute submission to God Almighty. Dominated by a bloated ego and pursuing material riches... how
could human beings on mother earth expected to travel path of spirituality that directly led to God Almighty.
The journey of spirituality is an uncharted path... absolutely unknown! As many human beings... as many
different paths to God Almighty can there be.
Reaching God was our goal of life and human
beings were free to travel any path as mandated in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. It was only by hit and trial
method I finally established absolute control over five senses and mind. Practising absolute celibacy for 14
years in continuation... in the wee hours of third of August 1993 I finally realized God at 37 years of age.
This is my last manifestation on mother earth. Having gained absolute purity... nowhere to go further... moment
I leave my mortal frame... I shall attain salvation moksha.
Soon after I realized God... the entire
wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism became like ABCD... it was as if I had dictated the contents of
sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my previous manifestations. Having reached source of all wisdom contained in
cosmos... I have but to concentrate on a particular topic and outpoured entire wisdom related to that subject.
My all spiritual discussions are extempore. I am never required to refer to any sacred spiritual
Self realisation experience is not something
that could ever be expressed in words. One who reached end of cosmic journey remained in a state of bliss all
the time. For a realised soul... the entire world became one large family. Self realisation can definitely be
achieved while remaining in the family. While remaining in Grihastha ashram (family life)... pursuing spiritual
path was much more difficult than for a bachelor like Swami Vivekananda.
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa gained self
realisation while living in the family whereas Maharishi Ramana realized god... realized self while remaining a
bachelor. Maharishi Ramana primarily followed path of self enquiry... path of Neti (not this, not this) for
reaching God in present life. Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa initially took to path of bhakti but finally switched
to path of jnana yoga... path of absolute wisdom to gain self realisation... God realization!
Self realisation... God realization could
never be experienced via path of bhakti yoga or karma yoga. Path of bhakti yoga demanded total surrender to God
Almighty which in the present material age was not possible. Following path of nishkama karma... offering fruits
of karma performed to God Almighty all the time... serious aspirants of spirituality finally reached God in
their lifetime. For a serious seeker of spirituality ego (Aham in Hinduism) had to be suppressed
Throughout my life I indulged in literature
relating to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Whenever I read anything about Sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana I experienced... I was closer to truth than anything else! The sweet small inner
voice of my soul atman that seemed to come from within my heart always told me to believe in teachings of Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana.
By duplicating path taken by Sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa... by undertaking path of jnana yoga from beginning of life, I finally succeeded in reaching God in
present life. Since six years of age... my faith in God Almighty was absolute. I followed path of absolute
truthfulness... always and ever! Not for once in the entire lifespan of 14 years of practicing celibacy did I
ever speak untruth. As time passed by I slowly realized the potential of remaining truthful all the
Most human beings failed to realize that
self realisation... god realization could not be realized by assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita alone. We have to practice humility at its best. Surrendering our ego (Aham in Hinduism) on alter of
spirituality in totality... we can definitely look forward to reaching stage of self realization... God
realization in present life! Apart from following sacred teachings contained in holy books of Hinduism... we
also had to be truthful all the time. How many people do we think were all the time truthful in life in this
Lord Krishna... one would gave doctrine of
Bhagavad Gita to mankind was a very humble person at heart. So were Mahavira, Gautama Buddha and Jesus Christ.
Both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana had true love for humanity. Unless we catered to interest
of community at large... one could never reach stage of self realisation... God realization! Most human beings
wanting to reach stage of self realisation... God realization in present times only thought of self. How could
such human beings be graced by God Almighty to become self realized... God realized?
No matter how many hours we spent daily
reading spiritual texts or praying in temples, churches or mosques... self realisation experience can only be
exercised by working for entire mankind. For an ardent seeker of spirituality... it was welfare of community
that mattered most all the time. I do not remember in my entire life if I ever cared for my individual self.
Every second of my life... the welfare of entire community was my goal of life. Whatever best I could do for
people at large... I always indulged in that. None could sway me from path of life I had chosen
