Query: How to attain God realization and liberation in this
To reach the stage of self realization, the foremost of all ingredients
on the path of spirituality is following the path of Dharma... the path of righteousness that can only be
followed by remaining truthful in life always and ever.
Most human beings in day-to-day life do not remain truthful. Prompted by
their ego... the wanton desires... the greed for materialistic riches one easily gets bogged down by the
ephemeral part of life. Maintaining a balance between the two... the physical manifest life and the spiritual
domain is really tough... but not impossible!
For the mankind to reach the stage of enlightenment, God Almighty has
destined a journey of 12.1 million earthly years (1.1 million manifestations on the whole)... a long journey
indeed! The earlier we tread the spiritual path... the better for we do not know what we shall be in the next
manifestation! Our residual balance of karma may lead us to the animal kingdom... unknowingly! Having
manifested the human form... it is quite possible to manifest an animal body again... all depends upon the
residual balance of karma of the present life!
Before embarking on the spiritual pursuit... the path of enlightenment
and salvation... we need truly understand the meaning of meditation. None of the paths indicated by you shall
fulfill your desires and wishes. Meditation is not what we think it to be. Meditation in Hindi is termed as
yoga. And what is yoga?
The effort of the soul atman to enjoin with the greater whole... the
supreme Creator... God Almighty himself is termed as yoga! In Hindi two yog two equals four! The effort of
the soul atman to synthesize with Brahman Parmatman is what we term as yoga. Ever since our soul atman got
separated from the mightier soul himself (Almighty God)... our soul atman is trying to regain its original
lost pure pristine form at the earliest!
Here we also need to understand the cosmic theory in its entirety. When
the collapse of the cosmos occurs... the size of the entire Cosmos reduces to half a thumb! This has been
absolutely made clear in the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Why so? It is for the simple reason that
devoid of all impurities contained within... the volume of all the purified souls' atmans in the Cosmos
combine together to form the size of half a thumb.
And this is exactly the definition of God Almighty. The definition of God
can thus be stated as the combined power of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos at a given point of time.
This enormous power... much much beyond the comprehension of normal human beings... unable to contain itself
for long again explodes with a big bang giving rise to a new cosmos... a new journey of life!
Does it mean that God Almighty explodes himself to form a new cosmos...
yes the truth is so! God Almighty is not the form of human beings. It is pure celestial power... the potency
of which can only be realized by an enlightened one! The moment one gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) all
becomes clear like ABCD.
This also clarifies why God is everywhere. All the hurtling souls' atmans
in their new journey of life gather impurities similar as a rolling ball gathers moss. Further down the
journey of life no sooner life supporting planets start forming in the Cosmos these impure souls manifest
physical forms. Every soul atman is God Almighty in minuscule form.
The journey back by every soul atman to its original pure pristine form
requires traveling a path of 8.4 million manifestations and an earthly abode of 96.4 million years. This
entire span of life covered by our soul atman is one single journey of life! Body to body... manifestation
after manifestation... the life for the soul atman continues uninterruptedly.
The concept of reincarnation... rebirth in most religions of the world
including Hinduism is totally flawed! When the death of the soul atman does not occur... the question of the
rebirth or reincarnation does not arise! As a student switches from class one to two... two to three and
three to four... the journey of the soul atman continues uninterruptedly from one manifestation to another...
body after body!
Meditations on the invisible God... name it Allah... Brahman...
Parmatman... Creator... be it any name does not serve the purpose! Nor will meditation on light. Meditation
on religious masters like Sri Shirdi Sai Baba and Sri Satya Sai Baba would also not serve the purpose.
Meditation through prayers alone also does not suffice.
We need to meditate in the Shavasana pose of yoga and follow the path of
Neti (not this... not this) as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana. Simultaneously we need to observe
celibacy (Brahmacharya Vrata) for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation. This leads to full awakening
of the Kundalini... a sure shot method for gaining enlightenment in this life.
Experiences on the spiritual path are varied... differing from person to
person! As many human beings... as many paths to god can there be! The rules of the spiritual path are never
defined! We have to travel a totally uncharted territory... sometimes fully fearsome! During the process of
the awakening of the Kundalini... facing a full hooded Cobra is really scary.
Prayers, retreats... places of seclusion are simply a means to an end. We
truly are a soul imbibed with impurities. We need not learn anything on the spiritual path. We simply need to
shed away the impurities within. Devoid of all impurities... our soul atman regains its original pure
pristine form and reaches the stage of enlightenment and salvation.
Enlightenment announces the ceasing of karma forever. No impurities
within... the need to manifest a body by our soul atman simply vanishes. The relationship between the soul
atman and our body is explained further. Similar as one K. G. of pure gold is sandwiched in a lump of hundred
KG of gold ore... our soul atman also remains impure until liberation!
Similar as we require requisite mining machinery to separate 99 KG of
impurities from one KG of pure gold... the impure soul atman also requires a body to work out its karma...
remove the dross within! The removal of the impurities within the soul atman requires a cycle of 8.4 million
manifestations on the whole out of which 7.3 million manifestations are in the insect, plant and animal form
and the balance 1.1 million in the human form!
The moment crux of life becomes clear... covering the journey is not
afar! Most human beings in life do not have a goal. Their life is like a rudderless boat going round and
round in the ocean. The moment we have a goal in life... the journey is half covered! Understanding the
meaning and process of correct meditation yoga is the essence of life!
Simply going to the temples, churches or mosques as a daily routine of
life carry no meaning in the spiritual domain! Spirituality is far above the clutches of religion. Dwelling
in the thoughts of God is being noble. Maintaining a positive karma all the time leads us towards gaining
Punya karma. It is only at number 99 one becomes a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet
Mohammed! At hundred one takes salvation moksha forever!
After salvation moksha the liberated soul atman goes back to the abode of
God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no return! No liberated soul atman can
manifest a body again. It becomes possible when dissolution of present Cosmos occurs... leading to a new
cosmos... a new cycle of life!
All liberated souls atmans for all practical purposes remain in
Vaikuntha... the kingdom of God for eternity! Whenever we invoke the blessings of a liberated soul... the
energized celestial beings bless us in person. It is not only possible... I have experienced it several
times! Right prayers coupled with proper mantra paves the way for invoking the blessings of learned ones...
souls that have already liberated having reached the stage of enlightenment and salvation.
Most articles on my different websites contain clues to gaining self
realization in this very life. To fathom the depths of the wisdom available is totally dependent upon the
individual student. The Sacred Bhagavad Gita... the most powerful sacred Scripture ever made available to
mankind by God Almighty is available for Rs 18/= ($.50) in most corners of India and the world. Still...
people fail to pursue the right goal of life!
