Query: If man
is subject to pain and forces of lust and greed...How can God and Man be one? If man and God are one, then
why can man fall down and break a leg, or be hungry? God is none of those
Whenever we shape a metal... we initially heat it, beat it... sometimes
immerse in cold water! When heated and beaten... it is time for sufferings! When immersed in cold water... we
experience happiness! Life in the cosmic domain is shaped like that... so was ordained by God Almighty! It is
only by experiencing sufferings we train self for the journey
Every human being while traveling the earthly domain sometimes suffers...
at other times experiences happiness and bliss! Both sufferings and happiness are two sides of the same coin
similar as... we have nights... we also have days! We have God... we also have Satan with equivalent powers!
We have fire... we also have water!
At any given moment of time... the sum total of the whole Cosmos must
always remain zero. This becomes possible only when equal and opposite forces neutralizes each other! If God
is positive aspect of life, Satan the negative! If fire burns... water cools down! We recognize day...
because we have night! In absence of sufferings... happiness would not carry any meaning!
It is sheer ignorance that makes one think God Almighty equivalent of
man! God Almighty... a cluster of unimaginable celestial power is the sum total of all purified souls atmans
in the Cosmos at a given point of time! If a grain of sand is an independent soul atman... the whole mound
With the limited power of the senses and the mind... it is beyond the
comprehension of human beings to realize true attributes of God Almighty. Only travelers of the spiritual
path sometimes get momentary glimpses. Life in the cosmic domain is not what we human beings think. Dominated
by a bloated ego... most human beings think the human journey as end of all!
If human beings are subject to lust and greed... it is not God Almighty
who ordained it for us! To choose or not to choose is the sole prerogative of individual human being! If
someone falls to lust and greed... it is dependent upon our karma performed! What of the self-control that
can be exercised in such circumstances.
Swami Vivekananda... the famous disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
never fell for lust and greed throughout his life! Does it mean... lust and greed never surrounded him!
Exercising self-control requires patience, persistence and perseverance of the highest order! All serious
seekers of spirituality having established absolute control over ego finally transcend the mortal world...
Samsara (worldly life)!
Every human being has been ordained by God Almighty a travel of 1.1
million manifestations and an earthly abode of 12.4 million years to reach the stage of enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha). Human beings do not reach the stage of enlightenment that
easily! In the last about 150 years amongst 6500 million people existing on Mother Earth... only two persons
gained enlightenment... sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana!
If we truly desire knowing God... we need traveling the spiritual path!
The Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism contains everything knowable on the path of spirituality! The knower of
Bhagavad Gita finally becomes the knower of all! For all practical purposes one finally gains
Gathering the pearls of wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism... every mortal... every human being can transcend the ephemeral world forever! The doctrine of
Bhagavad Gita given to mankind by Lord Krishna is without a parallel! It is Bhagavad Gita that makes it
clear... it is our soul atman within that is on its cosmic journey and not the human being!
Our soul atman manifests the human form to work out its karma... remove
the dross impurities within! Similar as impurities within the ore cannot remove of its own... every soul
atman also requires a body to work out its karma! It is only then one K. G. of pure metal can be extracted
from a lump of hundred K. G. of ore!
The lump of ore being impure soul atman on its cosmic journey... the
separated one K. G. of pure metal... a liberated soul atman! Life in the cosmic domain can never be
understood literally! One needs diving deep into the bottomless pit of spirituality and extracting those
pearls of wisdom following which one finally reaches the end of cosmic life... the 8.4 million
