Hare Rama Hare Krishna - Bhakti Yoga

Query: Is Hare Krishna chanting... dancing a shortcut to Spiritual Enlightenment?

Vijay Kumar:
If Hare Krishna chanting... Hare Krishna dancing had any affect whatsoever... not one but thousands should have gained enlightenment by now! Hare Krishna chanting does not even constitute a path of bhakti yoga... path of rituals that in earlier times led to stage of enlightenment... gaining kaivalya jnana!

Path of bhakti yoga involved total submission to God Almighty! Submission to God Almighty is never made Hare Rama Hare Krishna way! Singing Hare Krisna chants carried no meaning in spiritual world! In the field of pure spirituality... mere chanting... singing carried no meaning! None ever reached God chanting Hare Krishna hymns!

For reaching God Almighty... for gaining enlightenment in present life (termed kaivalya in Hinduism)... travelling uncharted path of spirituality was necessitated! None ever reached God via path of religion... path of rituals! Before travelling path of spirituality... understanding definition of spirituality... meaning of spirituality was an absolute must!

In my 54 years of spiritual travail I have yet to find a person who could explain to me meaning of spirituality... definition of words in spiritual terminology! Those who understood with clarity meaning of spirituality finally reached God in their lifetime! Understanding definition of spirituality... meaning of spirituality was not that easy as many believed!

Submission to God Almighty in totality was not that simple... prime reason why in present times none reached God via path of bhakti yoga... path of rituals! Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana initially started their search of God via path of bhakti yoga... path of rituals! But finally both switched to path of jnana yoga (path of absolute wisdom) to reach God in their lifetime!

The Hare Krishna path of ISKCON is an absolute farce! In present times path of bhakti yoga had no role in reaching God! Why follow a route that never led to God Almighty! Realizing our inner self... our soul atman, the spirit within was the ultimate goal of life for every human being! It is knowing our true inner self human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!

The Hare Krishna temples... chanting of Hare Rama Hare Krishna in present times is an absolute waste of time! No matter how many temples we built... unless we understood true meaning of spirituality... all went waste! I again repeat... those who understood true meaning of spirituality also reached God in their lifetime... finally gaining enlightenment at the end of journey!

For reaching stage of enlightenment in human form... a maximum journey of 1.1 million manifestations... that entailed an earthly sojourn of 12.4 million earthly years was mandated by God Almighty! Enlightenment... kaivalya jnana... stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi is not that easily achieved... prime reason why in last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over... only two persons succeeded in gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!

Both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana had a deep-rooted desire to reach God in their lifetime! Their goal of life always remained... reaching God in their lifetime! Realizing their true inner self... their soul atman... the spirit within became their quest of everyday life! Realizing inner self meant realizing God! Atman is part of Brahman... God Almighty in all its glory!

If an individual grain of sand is an independent soul atman... the whole mound God Almighty! If an individual piece of puzzle is an independent soul atman... the completed puzzle God Almighty! The moment our soul atman gained absolute purity... one reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!

Salvation (moksha) is attained the moment an enlightened one left mortal frame. After gaining liberation from cycle of birth and death forever... the liberated soul atman finally entered abode of God... kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no return! In Hinduism a soul is termed atman.
