Nirvikalpa Samadhi Sahaja Samadhi

Query: I have been also through a spiritual journey. I read a book of osho. While reading the book i went into nirvikalpa samadhi. But after coming from it mentally I became very weak. I went to phsyciatrist also. May i know the reason. Is it possible for me to go into sahaja samadhi once again?


Vijay Kumar:
If I am traveling from Dehradun to Jaipur and pass via New Delhi... does it mean I have seen New Delhi. Every human being at different moments of time travels the spiritual path but only momentarily. Most do it inherently never knowing why it so happens! Most human beings on Mother Earth fear traveling the spiritual path voluntarily! Why?

As understood by the masses... the spiritual path takes one away from worldly life! Dominated by the ego within, the wanton desires and greed for materialistic riches most human beings on Mother Earth never desire traveling the spiritual path! For them the spiritual path only belongs to fools... those who simply shun family life!

The truth is not so. Traveling the uncharted path of spirituality requires grit and patience of the highest order! Standing on the first floor of the Empire State building we simply cannot view the whole of New York. If we truly desire seeing the whole of New York... we indeed travel to the highest floor and for that we need to tread the elevator!

In the spiritual world... the elevator stands for awakening of the Kundalini! It is only through the path of Kundalini one scales higher brackets in spiritual life! The awakening of the Kundalini becomes possible by practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation.

In the last about 150 years only two persons amongst 6500 million people living on Mother Earth reached the level of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... they were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi is not that easy as we contemplate.

For temporal moments yes, many human beings gain access to the world of Nirvikalpa Samadhi! It is only a fleeting moment in the life of human beings! For gaining permanent access to Nirvikalpa Samadhi... for reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi permanently... one indeed needs reaching the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!

Gaining enlightenment is reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi when one can have a dialogue with God Almighty on one-to-one basis and that too permanently! Reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi means reaching the stage of nothingness! When everything in the Cosmos gets negated through the path of Neti (not this, not this)... what remains is God Almighty himself!

Reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi demands our removing all the dross impurities within the soul atman. This becomes possible when we travel the path of absolute truthfulness and all the time. Simultaneously practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation is an essential must.

The Shahastra Pushpa (the thousand petalled lotus) within the brain that exists behind our forehead opens up only when Kundalini awakens fully... never otherwise! The moment this happens one finally gains enlightenment... becomes omniscient for all practical purposes! Reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi means our soul atman having gained absolute purity!

Devoid of all dross impurities within... the liberated soul atman finally regains its original pure pristine form. Having transgressed worldly life (aka Samsara in Hinduism) the liberated soul atman finally gains access to the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). If we desire having glimpses of the spiritual world momentarily... we can indulge in anything spiritual!

It is gaining permanent access to the world of God that means something! Reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi permanently is the essence of life! One finally reaches the last leg of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation! Having reached the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... one finally gains salvation (moksha) forever!

Traveling the spiritual path has its merits and also demerits! On the physical front one may feel low... feel totally demoralized... out of energy... scared and what not! Traveling the spiritual path means scaling very high mental frequencies that sometimes drains our energy as a physical manifest being!

In the spiritual world it is only the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi that matters! As in Jainism... the entire Jainism philosophy was presented to mankind by Mahavira... the 24 Tirthankara of Jainism! Jainism is best recognized by Mahavira alone! The teachings of the earlier 23 tirthankaras never reached the masses... it was limited to the individual self alone!

Every form of Yoga meditation leads one towards the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi! We need to have a permanent goal in life... what ultimately do we desire out of life in the present physical manifest form? In absence of an ultimate goal of life our life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean! Having intermittent glimpses of the spiritual world carries no meaning.

Either we dwell in the physical manifest world or become a spiritual traveler forever! We definitely need to decide our goal of life. Having a goal in life is journey half covered! Every serious seeker of spirituality who reaches the end of journey always had a distinct goal in life... come face-to-face with God Almighty in this very life!

Swami Vivekananda... the famous disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa never gained enlightenment in his lifetime. Why? He never wanted to... when Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa asked about his goal of life... he was absolutely clear in his statement. He replied community service was the goal of his life... he was truly never after self realization in his lifetime!

Traveling the path of absolute truthfulness most human beings have momentary glimpses of the spiritual world! Who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel the spiritual path now! I again repeat... do not hanker after momentary glimpses of the spiritual world... indulge and thy shall reach stage of enlightenment and salvation!

Never fear any experience on the spiritual path! Experiences vary with individuals! Whatever may be experienced by you may differ with the experience of others. In the spiritual world... there is nothing to fear at all! During the stage of awakening of the Kundalini... facing the many hooded black cobra is most scary yet, we all have to go through the experience!

At no stage of life we need to see a psychiatrist or any other spiritual healer! In my own case I had to visit psychiatrists on insistence of my father. I very well knew within my own heart... I was always right... pursuing the right path! But my parents thought otherwise. For them traveling the spiritual path means losing their son in worldly life!

Whatever circumstances are... never visit a doctor or a psychiatrist for they do not know anything of the spiritual world! Whenever I explained my experiences to any doctor... their face kept blank. Traveling the uncharted path of spirituality is different for every human being. As many human beings... as many paths to spirituality... as many paths to God can there be!

 Full text of query: I have been also through a spiritual journey. I read a book of osho. While reading the book i went into nirvikalpa samadhi. But after coming from it mentally i became very weak. i went to phsyciatrist also. May i know the reason.

Later i read a book of nissargdatta maharaj, And i went into sahaja samadhi (Spontaneous state). Previously i was aware that once a person enters into sahaja samadhi he can't ever come back to the mundane world. But one day i came out of this superconsious state. Can i know the reason. Is it possible for me to go into sahaja samadhi once again?
