Query: I want to experience God or achieve self realization. Can you
Do you realize the meaning of self realization or God realization! Self
realization... God realization... enlightenment... Brahma jnana, realizing our inner self, all mean the same!
Achieving self realization means reaching the status of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet
You simply do not desire reaching the level of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
or Maharishi Ramana in this very life! Even Swami Vivekananda refused to realize self! When sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa asked Swami Vivekananda what he was really after... he point blank stated that community service
was his goal of life... he truly never was after self realization!
In his lifetime Swami Vivekananda never reached the status of an
enlightened being! If we need going from New Delhi to Mumbai... we have different modes of travel available!
We can travel by airplane, train, bus... a cart or even by foot! As our pocket allows and the means
available... we can start the journey!
Traveling the spiritual path can be the goal of anyone! One need not be a
king or a rich person! In the house of God all are equal... every human being has the right to tread the
uncharted path of spirituality! God Almighty never discriminates... the special power of discrimination
available to all human beings that distinguishes us from animals makes us what we are... the highest manifest
form in the cosmic life cycle!
Reaching the status of a self realized being means reaching the stage of
Nirvikalpa Samadhi... when one can have a permanent communion with God Almighty on one-to-one basis!
Achieving the stage of self realization is the end of all! One finally reaches the end goal of cosmic life...
the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in the cosmic life cycle!
After self realization one finally attains salvation (moksha)... gaining
a permanent seat in the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ, prophet Mohammed, sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... all reached
Vaikuntha (aka kingdom of God) at the end of their lifetime!
Cutting across the shackles of family life... the bondage of Samsara
(worldly life) is the most difficult of all. We need to establish absolute control over the five senses and
the mind. Only thereafter one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... never before! Following Neti (not
this, not this) the Shavasana way of life as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana is a sure shot method
of reaching the end goal of life... the stage of God realization!
Practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years is another
requisite on the path of self realization! A really difficult task but not impossible! Vishwamitra... Acharya
Rajneesh (aka Osho)... both failed on the celibacy front! Sage Vishwamitra had to practice celibacy all over
again for another 12 years in a go! Acharya Rajneesh never realized God in his lifetime.
We must always remember... it is not the competence of the teacher that
matters... it is the willingness... the power to travel the extra mile that makes one a suitable student on
the path of spirituality! I have achieved the goal of cosmic life at 37 years of age! I can definitely guide
others on the path! Numerous essays on my website have different clues on the path of spirituality... to
follow or not to follow is the sole prerogative of every individual human being!
It is only the practice of absolute celibacy that helps full awakening of
the Kundalini! The moment that happens... the Shahastra Pushpa within our brain behind the forehead opens in
totality! The complete Wisdom of the Cosmos is now at our tips! An enlightened being... a self realized
person uses brain hundred percent... Normal human beings rarely use even 1%!
Albert Einstein the famous physicist used his brain 4%. In the human form
alone we have 1.1 million manifestations... an earthly journey of 12.4 million years to reach the stage of
enlightenment and finally salvation. But we have only one life to live... who knows what we shall be in the
next manifestation. Why not travel the spiritual path now!
I again repeat... the onus is on the student to travel the spiritual
path! Amongst 6500 million people existing on Mother Earth only two persons gained self realization in the
last 150 years... they were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Self realization is not what
some people believe it to be!
Truly speaking... self realization and enlightenment mean the same! For
going from New Delhi to Mumbai whether we catch the Rajdhani train or a super fast is immaterial... the
question is reaching the end of the journey! As and when one has a query... you are welcome to clarify the
same! The moment all queries within one dissolve forever... one gains self realization!
Negation of all impurities within the sole atman is the crux of cosmic
life! It is only through the complex process of karma life moves on in the cosmic life cycle! Birth after
birth... manifestation after manifestation... the life cycle of soul atman within continues! The moment all
dross impurities within the soul atman remove... it regains its original pure pristine form!
Bhagavad Gita the most sacred Scripture of Hinduism on Mother Earth is
the end of all! One who needs reaching the stage of self realization... the sacred Bhagavad Gita encompasses
all that is worth knowing! The knower of Bhagavad Gita finally becomes the knower of all! One for all
practical purposes gains omniscience.
Traveling the spiritual path means cutting self from the physical
manifested world! No sooner we start the spiritual journey... our relationship with our near and dear ones...
that we called our father, mother, brother, sister and so dissolve forever! Cutting across the shackles...
the bondage of family ties is another difficult task! Most human beings fail at this level!
In the field of spirituality there is no place for commercial dealings!
It is absolute submission to God Almighty that paves way for an expeditious spiritual journey! Most sages and
saints of the present era who prefer living in the lap of money, the materialistic riches... can such people
be trusted to impart the sacred Wisdom of Bhagavad Gita!
Bhagavad Gita can only be understood by traveling the path of absolute
truthfulness... never otherwise! Those who remain engrossed in mundane affairs of life never cut across the
shackles of Samsara (worldly life)! For them self realization... enlightenment always remains a
If you truly desire traveling the spiritual path, gaining self
realization... send as many intelligent queries as you can! To understand the gist of Bhagavad Gita is the
real essence of life! Available for only Rs 18 ($.40) at most railway stations of India... the Wisdom of
sacred Bhagavad Gita still remains beyond the reach of human beings! Bhagavad Gita can never be understood
literally. We definitely need reading in between the lines!
