How can I expedite my cycle of birth and death to realize god and reach Vaikuntha at the
At this stage of life you must learn to differentiate
between religion and spirituality. Religion was the path that your father traveled as a Pujari (priest). You
are also religious in your approach. You had nothing to do with spirituality that directly led to God
Almighty. Maybe you do not qualify even for standard one in field of pure
Let us discuss what spirituality truly is! Spirituality is the path that leads one towards
our true inner self... our soul atman, the spirit within! For traveling path of spirituality indulgence in
teachings contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism were necessitated. In absence of jnana wisdom contained in
Bhagavad Gita... none world over could ever reach stage of enlightenment, no matter what! Path of religion... path
of rituals never leads one to God Almighty.
It was immaterial how many times human beings when to
temples, churches or mosques! It was also immaterial how many times one chanted Hare Krishna day and night.
Praying to god, worshipping god lay in domain of religion... not spirituality! Most human beings in India did
not know how to pray to God Almighty. God Almighty accepted our prayers only when they were directed towards
welfare of masses... community, never the personal self!
You say... you want to reach stage of salvation moksha in present life! You have yet to start
journey of spirituality. As ordained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... every human being had a maximum of 1.1
million manifestations in human form to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana in Hinduism). Reaching stage
of enlightenment was not that easy. In the last about 150 years amongst 7000 million people world over only two
spiritual stalwarts finally reached the end... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana!
Every single human being who gained enlightenment in present life started young. Simple
desires and wishes carried no meaning in spiritual world. Do not live under an illusion... you would never reach
anywhere on spiritual path! You say you were inclined towards spirituality since childhood. You are mistaken... it
was not spirituality but path of religion (path of rituals) that you traveled all the time. Seekers of spirituality
never went to a temple, church or mosque in their lifetime!
Both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana initially started their search of god
via path of bhakti yoga (path of total submission) to reach god in their lifetime. But finding that god could not
be reached via path of bhakti yoga alone... both finally switched to path of jnana yoga (path of absolute wisdom)
in their lifetime. In my search of god, I also went to temples in the initial stages of my life. Finding that God
did not exist in temples... I started path of contemplation... path of self enquiry, path of Neti (not this, not
this) to reach God.
If you think organizations like ISKCON helped in reaching God... not one amongst the cult
reached God in the entire history of ISKCON! Travelers of path of religion were absolutely ignorant in matters
spiritual. In my 50 years of spiritual travail... I have yet to find a person who could sincerely define to me
definition of God Almighty, meaning of karma, dharma, enlightenment, salvation moksha and related spiritual
terminology. People talk of spirituality but feared traveling spiritual path. Why?
Spiritual path was like traveling razors edge. One could win many noble prizes but traveling
spiritual path was practising excellence that was nowhere to be seen in present world! For reaching god in present
life... we had to negate our karma to zero. For negating karma to zero, we had to establish absolute control over
five senses and mind. Furthermore practising absolute celibacy for 12 years in continuation... human beings finally
succeeded in full awakening of their kundalini shakti, the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of
No sooner our kundalini energy awakened fully... Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in brain behind
forehead opened fully. One immediately reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) forever. One finally became
a bodhi... a Jina... a Mahavira forever!
You further say... you want to fulfill your material desires and also reach God Almighty!
Path of spirituality was always unconditional. God Almighty never guaranteed material riches to those who traveled
path of pure spirituality. When I started in search of God 13 years of age... I had no inkling what God Almighty,
kundalini awakening or salvation moksha was all about! But, since six years of age I was a practitioner of path of
absolute truthfulness. No matter what, in every single affair of life, I was always truthful! My goal of life was
straight and clear... reach god in this very life! I had no time to waste in rituals or material pursuits of
By remaining truthful... I could hear the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman that
always prompted me on right path! Most human beings world over wanted to travel spiritual path even while desiring
material riches. Such people failed to realize that in domain of God almighty... material riches carried no value.
Whatever transfers to next life was our balance of karma... positive or negative! At every stage of life I always
tried to accumulate good karma, positive karma, Punya karma in order to negate my karma to zero!
Path of spirituality was always a one-way path! We must always tread path of spirituality
with caution. Having started... chances of returning to normal routines of life were non-existent!
Stated in simpler words, to travel path of spirituality in present times one had to become a
Swami Vivekananda. It is a surprising fact that even Swami Vivekananda did not gain enlightenment in his lifetime.
The goal of life for Swami Vivekananda always was community service... and in that he excelled! When Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa asked Swami Vivekananda... why he had come to him, if the goal of his life was not gaining
self realization... he promptly replied, just to confirm presence of God! Swami Vivekananda knew what he wanted in
life and he got it.
