Self Realization Techniques|
Self realization techniques can be many...
as many human beings... as many different paths to God Almighty can there be! In spiritual terminology...
gaining self-realization meant reaching God Almighty in ones lifetime! Self realization... God realization...
enlightenment... all meant the same! Self realization is reaching our true inner self... our real self... our
soul atman... the spirit within! In simpler words... realizing our true inner self... becoming a pure soul atman
is what self realization... God realization... enlightenment is all about!
Ever since pure souls' atmans started their
cosmic journey... they got imbibed with impurities! To cleanse self of dross impurities within started cosmic
life cycle of every soul atman. Similar as a rolling ball gathers moss... all souls’ atmans in their cosmic
sojourn gathered impurities! It was not within the capability of a soul atman to maintain its purity all the
time! To purify itself... every soul atman manifested a chain of bodies on mother earth. No soul atman could
cleanse self of dross impurities within of its own. It needed a medium... a body to work out its karma... purify
self of all dross impurities within! In Hinduism a soul is termed atman.
The cleansing of a soul atman becomes
possible by traveling spiritual path... never path of religion... path of rituals! Spiritual path is best
traveled following wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. It is only by following path of jnana
yoga... path of absolute wisdom... human beings slowly step-by-step eradicated traces of karma within their soul
atman! Complete eradication of karma from our soul atman is a long drawn process... requiring a maximum of 1.1
million manifestations in human form. For human beings to gain self-realization in a limited time span of 70 to
80 years of life is nothing short of a miracle.
Those seekers of spirituality who had
willpower demonstrated by Swami Vivekananda were fit enough to undertake spiritual journey as ordained in sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! The journey of self realization is always traveled all alone. No matter how best one
tried... one may not get a spiritual preceptor on path of pure spirituality! In case of Swami Vivekananda... he
was lucky to have Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa as his spiritual guide in the journey of life! Sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa gained self-realization... God realization... enlightenment in his lifetime! Swami Vivekananda could
have repeated the same... but his goal of life was different!
Swami Vivekananda was never after gaining
self realization in his lifetime... prime reason why he never reached stage of self-realization! Apart from Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Maharishi Ramana also gained enlightenment in his lifetime. For following path of self
realization... indulgence in yoga meditation techniques of Hinduism were necessitated. Ramana Maharishi all his
life indulged in path of self enquiry... path of Neti (not this, not this) for reaching stage of self
realization... God realization! Amongst different meditation techniques... indulging in self enquiry while lying
in savasana way of yoga was the best!
Savasana way of yoga meditation can always be practiced anytime during day or night! Even while going to sleep one
can indulge in savasana way of yoga! Lying on bed one could indulge in self enquiry... negating everything that was
not God! Slowly one day we finally reached God Almighty... moment our entire karma negated to zero! Apart from
indulging in self enquiry path of meditation... practice of absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in
continuation was necessitated! Practising celibacy for 12 years in continuation finally resulted in full kundalini
awakening! One immediately reached stage of an enlightened one... a bodhi... Jina... a Mahavira!
The goal of all spiritual meditation
techniques was reaching God in present life. For cutting across shackles of karma forever... we had to establish
absolute control over five senses and mind... we simply had no other alternative! Establishing control over five
senses and mind was not a lifetime job... it required many manifestations by our soul atman to fully eradicate
karma within our soul atman! It was only by indulging in good karma... positive karma human beings finally
emancipated from cycle of birth and death forever... reaching cosmic end of life... 8.4 millionth
Path of spirituality... goal of self
realization is not that easily traveled in one lifetime! On the other hand human beings preferred traveling path
of religion... path of rituals that practically led nowhere! In the present scientific age... none could gain
self-realization... God realization... enlightenment via path of religion... rituals! Indulging in karma all the
time we could not expect eradicating karma from our soul atman! It was only by indulging in nishkama karma way
of life... serious seekers of spirituality finally made it to the end!
On path of pure spirituality... karma must
always be performed nishkama karma way... i.e. offering fruits of karma performed to God Almighty all the time!
When the journey of life never belonged to manifest physical form... the fruits of karma performed also belonged
to its original owner... our soul atman... the spirit within! The present human form was manifested by our soul
atman to gain absolute purity at the earliest. This became possible when human beings traveled path of
spirituality that directly took us to God Almighty.
Our soul atman rested in our heart! Through
process of pranayama ... the right breathing meditation technique one could easily reach the source that
required breathing! The moment one succeeded in reaching the source of breathing forever... all was over for the
human form! One finally reached stage of self realization... God realization... enlightenment!
Meditative breathing technique of pranayama
was essential part of all forms of yoga meditation! The right breathing procedure can be easily followed by
anyone. Following path of pure spirituality definitely was difficult but for a serious seeker of spirituality...
nothing was impossible! Self realization theory had its pitfalls! In my search for God Almighty, I do not
remember how many times I had to eat hell for breakfast... how many contemplations of
The goal of my life was fixed... reach god within this life! No matter what the difficulty... I had to reach god
within present life! 25 years of yoga meditation... 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 become a pure soul atman... the need for
me as a pure soul atman to manifest another body now ceased to exist! Nowhere to go further... I as a liberated
soul atman shall attain moksha salvation... finally entering kingdom of God... abode of God... termed Vaikuntha in
Having reached the ultimate goal of life...
having become a master of self realization... one thing is absolutely clear to me! The stage of self
realization... God realization could only be reached via path of jnana yoga as detailed in Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism! In the present scientific age... one could never reach God via path of bhakti yoga alone! The wisdom
contained in Bhagavad Gita could not be assimilated literally... it demands reading in between the
By remaining truthful all throughout... one
could easily grasp the inner meaning contained in 700 shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita! Truthfulness was the most
vital ingredient on path of pure spirituality. Unless one was truthful to core... wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita could never be understood! I receive so many queries from people world over that they had read Bhagavad
Gita several times! Such ignorants of path of pure spirituality failed to realize that gist of Bhagavad Gita
could never be understood literally... one had to first become absolutely truthful!
The original dictate of Bhagavad Gita by
Lord Krishna in battle of Mahabharata is available for mere $.60 (Rs. 30/=) from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India...
still, how many people world over understood contents of Bhagavad Gita... perhaps not even few that could be
counted on fingers!
Self realization also could not be imparted
by religious preachers of today... as claimed by many! Eradication of karma can only be done by the individual
concerned! Bhagavad Gita categorically states that karma of one could not be affected by karma of others. Every
single human being on mother earth had to travel journey of self realization all alone! Spiritual masters if
any... could only act as a guide in the journey of life!
