God Realization Self Realization

Query: I wish for god realization. I have been meditating for a few years and want liberation in this lifetime.

Vijay Kumar:
Wonderful, wanting to see Mumbai without having started the journey itself! I appreciate your zeal and enthusiasm but in the house of God simple desires and wishes carry no meaning. Everything in the cosmic system is governed by the doctrine of karma... the law of karma! As we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more!

Simply by desiring one cannot gain self realization... god realization! Before we discuss further on god realization (aka self realization) we need to understand the true meaning and purport of god realization. God realization is not something to be achieved temporarily or permanently by human beings... it is a state of permanent achievement by the soul atman within!

Always remember... it is our soul atman residing within our heart that is the master and controller of the body and not vice versa! It is our soul atman that has manifested the body to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! Achieving the state of god realization is the ultimate goal of life for every soul atman.

The moment human beings reach the stage of god realization... all is over for the soul atman within! Having reached the Mount Everest of spiritual pursuit the god realized soul finally enters the domain of God... the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). Attaining god realization is reaching the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last leg in the cosmic cycle!

Every human being living on Mother Earth inherently desires gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)... but how many accomplish it! In the last about 150 years only two persons amongst 6500 million existing on Mother Earth reached the stage of god realization... they were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana!

In the history of mankind only two ladies till date have reached the stage of god realization! In the female form it is extremely difficult to gain god realization. Why? It is for the simple reason that the imbibed feeling of attachment (Moha) that exists in every lady... in every female does not let ladies to reach the stage of god realization... enlightenment!

To cut across the shackles of Moha (attachment) is extremely difficult! The prime reason why only Maitreyi (the devoted wife of sage Jnanavalakya) and the famous philosopher Gargi accomplished this feat! No matter what, Maitreyi wanted to reach the stage of god realization! The moment sage Jnanavalakya realized the truth... he guided her on the path!

The famous philosopher Gargi practiced absolute celibacy on the spiritual path! Her determination finally led her to gaining self realization... god realization in her lifetime! Her discussions on the subject of sex with Mandan Mishra are world famous. She never considered the topic of sex as taboo. She ultimately defeated Mandan Mishra and won the discussion!

The famous Gargi and Maitreyi colleges in New Delhi, India are reminiscent of the importance attached to Maitreyi and Gargi by the Indian society. Traveling the spiritual path by ladies is not banned... it is simply more difficult than anticipated! All family ties and attachments forsaken forever one needs traveling the spiritual path... the uncharted territory all alone!

When I started on the spiritual path at 11 years of age... I had no one to guide me! Finally God Almighty became my guide. Primarily it is not the guide who helps... it is the seeker himself who has to travel the spiritual journey all alone! The bulldog determination of Winston Churchill with all eggs in one basket... mounted with a desire to reach the end goal of life finally wins the day!

Various essays on my different web sites contain clues... the hidden ingredients of spirituality that pave way for a smoother journey ahead! To gather or not to gather is the sole prerogative of every individual human being. It is not the teacher that matters... it is the willingness of the student to travel the extra mile that wins the day!

We must also understand that God realization means becoming a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed in this very life! The paths maybe different yet goal of all spiritual seekers always remained the same! For traveling from New Delhi to Mumbai one may catch Rajdhani express, mail train, an ordinary express or a passenger train... the crux lies in reaching the end goal of life... Mumbai itself!

Before one truly meditates... we also need to understand the meaning of meditation! Truly speaking... meditation is not what most people understand! Meditation in Hindi stands for yoga... the effort of our soul atman wanting to join the bigger whole... God Almighty himself... Parmatman (Param atman)!

Meditation is not sitting in a small dimly lit room and concentrating on nothing... that something worthwhile can be achieved! Meditation nee yoga is removing the impurities within! It is our soul atman that is on its cosmic journey. It is our soul atman that desires reaching the end of the cosmic journey at the earliest.

Every human form simply assists the soul atman within! Every form of yoga meditation must lead one towards more purity in life. Seeking God Almighty in every detail of life is what yoga meditation is all about! People in the West are absolutely ignorant about the true meaning and purport of meditation yoga.

Meditation yoga truly is the effort of every soul atman wanting to merge with the bigger atman... God Almighty itself at the earliest! The word Yoga has been derived from the root word Yog which means synthesis between the two. Two Yog two equals four! The effort of every soul atman to merge with supreme soul... God Almighty is what yoga meditation is all about!

Liberation from the cycle of birth and death is not that easy to achieve! Reaching the 8.4 millionth manifestation is the end goal of every life! Every human being has a total of 1.1 million manifestations in the human form (an earthly journey of 12.4 million years) to reach the stage of god realization... self realization... enlightenment!

Every human being who has the potential of Swami Vivekananda can achieve this feat! Swami Vivekananda never wanted to gain realization in his lifetime... he was more after community service! Had Swami Vivekananda desired god realization... he would have done it easily! The determination and the will to gain success in life was what Swami Vivekananda was all about!

If I start teaching the books of class 10 to students of standard one... would they assimilate the contents of the same! No... Never under any circumstance! Your anxiety is well understood... the contents of what God dictated to me after god realization are meaningless at this stage of life. You have yet to travel the bigger part of spiritual path... the uncharted territory!

Always remember... you have one life to live! Who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation. Make best possible efforts and a distinct goal of life as Swami Vivekananda had! You shall accomplish it one day! Reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi means stopping the flow of unwanted thoughts in totality!

The moment every query within human beings eliminates forever... one gains absolute purity on the spiritual path! Devoid of all impurities dross within... one finally reaches the stage of god realization! I have solely retained my body for the purpose of disseminating pearls of wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita.

Your every intelligent query would be promptly answered as long as long as I retain my body. I extremely appreciate receiving intelligent queries! Try dissolving your queries forever! The voice of our soul atman that seems to come from within our heart is our ultimate guide in the journey of life. The voice of our soul atman always guides us on the right path!

Hearing this sweet small inner voice of my soul atman... I reached the end goal of life... the stage of self realization... God realization! The only requisite for distinctly hearing the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman is traveling the path of absolute truthfulness. Unless we are absolutely truthful in life... nothing much can be accomplished in the present domain... the ephemeral world!
