Attain Enlightenment Spiritual Journey Swami Vivekananda

Query: What does it mean when people say they gained enlightenment... self realization!


Vijay Kumar:
I shall start from beginning! Of total 8.4 million manifestations by our soul atman... 7.3 million manifestations occurred in insect, plant and animal life! In the remaining 1.1 million manifestations in human form... one is expected to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! Imagine these 1.1 million manifestations as 1.1 million classes!

An ordinary human being who has just manifested human form shall start from karmic level 7.300001 finally reaching 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings become man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed! This journey of 1.1 million manifestations in human form requires an earthly journey of 12.4 million years!


Truly enlightenment is not that easily achieved! Suppose you stood in class two... still, could you decipher books of class 12 or even six! For one younger in cosmic age... to understand precepts of spirituality is not only difficult... rather impossible! It is only in stages step-by-step... one proceeded ahead on cosmic life cycle by undertaking spiritual journey!

But how many people world over travelled spiritual path... most preferred travelling religious path that took nowhere! If we stood on karmic index of 7.390020 (and karma balance of 47)... by taking religious path it is quite possible that even though one climbed to 7.390021th manifestation but the karma balance reduced to 45! If it reduced to 44, one would manifest form of an animal!

Considering 45 was the threshold limit for changeover!


No matter how best I tried to explain to you... remaining in class two... one could never understand books of class 11 or 12! This was only made possible by travelling spiritual path that directly led to God Almighty! If I am not mistaken world over amongst 7 billion people... we may not find more than a few hundred people travelling spiritual path diligently and sincerely!

Travelling spiritual path means becoming a Swami Vivekananda in present life! We ought to have the same zeal... same enthusiasm that Swami Vivekananda carried to crossover ocean of Samsara (worldly life) and reach God in present life! I again repeat... contents of sacred scriptures could never be understood literally unless we travelled spiritual path... never path of religion!

Whenever a human being claimed in definite words that one had attained self realization... god realization... one is the biggest ignorant of spiritual path! There is no dearth of religious preachers in present times claiming so but Paramhansa Yogananda or Sri Aurobindo never minced words! They never claimed they reached stage of self realization... god realization!


A true traveler of spiritual path would never claim something that was wrong... it could never be! Even spiritual stalwart like Swami Vivekananda did not gain self realization... god realization in his lifetime! Why? When Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa asked Swami Vivekananda why he had come to him if the goal of his life was not gaining self realization... god realization... Swami Vivekananda said... just to confirm presence of God Almighty... nothing beyond that!

The goal of life for Swami Vivekananda always was community service and in that he excelled!

Full text of query: I understand there is simply no reason to disbelieve you as there ought to be very few God realized souls. You have clearly written that from the literature of the well known personalities like Yogananda, Aurobindo.. it is clear that they did not attain enlightenment. My only interest is in knowing as to how we can understand from the literature about this.

The discussion forwarded by you appears to be true but I need some clarity on this specially because if they did not attain God realisation then what did they attaine which they termed as God realization.
