Query: I have
met so many gurus but none has been convincing. I feel this great thirst to realize God but do not want it to
be a religion based path.Can you suggest!|
The thirst to realize self... to know our inner self... to merge forever
with God Almighty exists within human beings ever since the soul atman manifested the human form! As ordained
by God Almighty... every human being has a total of 1.1 million manifestations (an earthly journey of 12.4
million years) to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
One can always cut short the spiritual journey by realizing certain
truths of life! In the last about 150 years amongst 6500 million people existing on Mother Earth only two
persons gained enlightenment... they were sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Realizing God
after all is not that simple!
The moment one gains enlightenment... realizes self... one reaches the
end of cosmic journey... the 8.4 millionth manifestation! Nowhere else to go further... the liberated soul
atman finally enters the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). One can always start
on the spiritual path but the pitfalls of the spiritual path must be absolutely clear!
In the history of mankind only two ladies till date gained self
realization... reached the end of cosmic journey! They were the famous philosopher Gargi and Maitreyi, wife
of Sage Jnanavalakya... the compiler of Brihadaranakya Upanishad! Both these ladies had only one desire in
life... come across face-to-face with God Almighty in their lifetime!
God realization is not gained in the human form! The moment one starts on
the spiritual path... the egoist self dies its natural death! The question of one wanting self realization
via any path other than religion is absolutely ruled out! In the house of God choices are not made my human
beings but the soul atman within!
We always need to remember it is our soul atman within that has
manifested the body to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! It is not within the power
of the body to manifest a soul atman! Our soul atman is the ultimate master and controller of the body and
not otherwise! It is our soul atman that is on its cosmic journey.... not the human being!
Before starting on the uncharted path of spirituality one needs to decide
the ultimate goal of life! On the spiritual path one day we would not be able to recognize even our beloved
father, mother, brothers and sisters and all those nears and dears! The whole world simply appears as a
Self realization is not something that needs to be achieved in the human
form! It is the end of the journey itself... the human form! Having reached the level of God realization...
the liberated soul atman finally regains its original pure pristine form! The potency of God realization can
be ascertained from the fact that Swami Vivekananda in his lifetime never gained god realization!
God realization was never the goal of a Vivekananda. Why? When Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa asked Swami Vivekananda what he was truly after... he point blank replied he was never
after god realization! His goal of life was absolutely clear... serving the community to its best! Traveling
the path of God realization in the woman form is still more difficult!
The bondage of Moha (attachment) prohibits ladies from traveling the
spiritual path! If we try and understand the cosmic crux of life... our soul atman initially manifested the
form of an amoeba (single cell formation). It further evolved into multi cell formation... then insect life,
plant life, animal life and finally the form of human beings!
Before reaching the human form the soul atman has already manifested 7.3
million manifestations in the insect, plant and animal form! In 1.1 million manifestations every human being
is expected to reach the stage of God realization! The journey is long... the path is really difficult but
Religion primary assists one in living the ephemeral phase of life... the
mortal world... the life span of 70 to 80 years amicably! On the contrary spirituality helps one dive deep
into the inner world... the world of our soul atman! Walking the spiritual path every serious seeker of
spirituality finally transcends ephemeral life... the mortal world... gains omniscience forever!
Spirituality is in no way connected with religion! Religion primarily is
a following of enlightened masters... nothing much to do with gaining enlightenment and salvation.
Enlightenment can only be achieved by traveling the uncharted path of spirituality! Initially one needs
establishing absolute control over five senses and the mind.
Simultaneously we need to practice absolute celibacy for a minimum period
of 12 years in continuation! Only then full awakening of the Kundalini becomes possible. The full awakening
of the Kundalini leads one to the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi when one can have a dialogue with God Almighty
on one-to-one basis!
The full awakening of the Kundalini is a prerequisite on the path of
spirituality. Awakening of the Kundalini occurs gradually... it is a path without a shortcut! Practicing
celibacy in the present materialistic world is very difficult to be achieved! Most human beings in life get
bogged down by a bloated ego, greed for wanton desires and materialistic riches!
Establishing absolute control over five senses and mind becomes possible
by following the path of absolute truthfulness all along in life. The moment this happens... the sweet small
inner voice of our soul atman that seems to come from within our heart becomes distinctly clear. The voice of
our soul atman always guides us on the right path.
Hearing the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman... I finally gained
God realization in 1993! Establishing absolute control over five senses and the mind is really difficult...
but not impossible! Possessing an indomitable will power exercised by Winston Churchill with all eggs in one
basket... one finally transcends all barriers of worldly life (aka Samsara in Hinduism).
Establishing a firm goal in life is journey half covered. Above 99% human
beings on Mother Earth never carry a goal in life... can such people ever be expected to travel the spiritual
path! Many essays on my website contain vital clues on the spiritual path. All queries can always be
addressed to me!
For following the path of pure spirituality... one need not ever indulge
in religion! Following the path of Neti (not this, not this) as practiced and advocated by Maharishi
Ramana... one finally reaches the end goal of life! Neti is best followed the Shavasana path of yoga! Lying
in the Shavasana pose of yoga... negating all that is ephemeral... what ultimately remains is God Almighty
himself. One finally realizes God!
