What is absolute truth? What is jnana yoga? Is understanding Brahman reaching absolute
Absolute truth... definition of absolute truth is detailed
in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth! Absolute
truth is understanding, realizing truth of our real self... our soul atman... the spirit within! The moment
human beings realized absolute truths of life... one finally reached stage of enlightenment (termed
As per Bhagavad Gita... essence of absolute truth laid in our understanding cosmic system in
totality! Absolute truth was one and only one... God Almighty himself! As per Bhagavad Gita other than God Almighty
nothing else existed in cosmic system! God Almighty was the only absolute truth of life... something that could
never be denied by human beings!
The presence of ego within dissuaded us from understanding real essence of life... the
absolute truth of cosmic system! It is only by cutting across shackles of karma... i.e. establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and
salvation (moksha) forever!
Universal truths... the absolute truth of life could never be reached via path of religion...
path of rituals! For reaching absolute truths of life... undertaking spiritual journey was mandated by God
Almighty! If we are to realize God in all its glory... our travelling uncharted path of spirituality was an
absolute must... the path of unknown!
Absolute truths of life could only be reached via path of jnana yoga... path of absolute
wisdom... never path of religion... path of rituals! Path of jnana yoga entailed diving deep into bottomless pit of
wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita Hinduism! God Almighty can only be reached via path of contemplation... path of
jnana (wisdom)... never path of bhakti yoga... path of karma yoga!
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... two spiritual stalwarts who reached stage of enlightenment in
last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over... started their pursuit of God via path of
bhakti yoga... path of rituals! But finally both switched to path of jnana yoga... path of absolute wisdom... path
of absolute truth that directly led to God Almighty!
Reaching God in a limited time span of 70 to 80 years is almost next to impossible... prime
reason why God entailed a long journey of 1.1 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years
in human form) to reach stage of enlightenment (termed kaivalya in Hinduism)! Truly God could not be reached that
easily... one requires willpower demonstrated by Swami Vivekananda!
Travelling path of jnana yoga entailed following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism! The wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita could not be assimilated literally... it demands reading in between
the lines! Only a serious seeker of spirituality like Swami Vivekananda was fit enough to travel spiritual
In Hinduism, God Almighty is termed Brahman! Brahman is also termed Karta, Parmatman, Bhagwan, Sanatana Purusha and
Ishwar in Hinduism. Brahman... God Almighty is one and only one... the only absolute truth of life! The moment
human beings reached God... one finally reached absolute truths of life!
In present materialistic age dominated by a sensual environment... establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind seemed almost impossible... prime reason why people preferred travelling
religious path than path of spirituality! People always desired taking shortcuts to God almighty... knowing well
there never were shortcuts to reaching God... Brahman in Hinduism!
Travelling path of jnana yoga demanded practising absolute celibacy for a minimum period of
12 years in continuation! For full awakening of Kundalini Shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in
base of spine... practice of absolute celibacy was mandated by God Almighty! Full awakening of Kundalini Shakti led
to opening of Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in our brain behind forehead!
No sooner our Kundalini Shakti awakened fully... human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya)...
became an enlightened one forever! One finally gains omniscience for all practical purposes... becomes knower of
all! In present materialistic age wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita sufficed for human beings reaching stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!
One single scripture... the sacrosanct Bhagavad Gita is not only full of absolute truth... it
contains truth... but only truth! Follower of Bhagavad Gita finally gained enlightenment in ones lifetime! In
present times for reaching God... one need not follow wisdom contained in Vedas... Puranas, Itihasas, Agamas and
Darshanas! Upanishads (independent treatises) definitely are of great help.
