Query: I am desirious of renouncing this world in pursuit of more
Spiritual Knowledge and perhaps Spiritual Enlightenment. I eagerly await your guidance and
direction for my Spiritual Journey!
Kumar: The field of pure spirituality is
fascinating for it takes one directly to abode of God Almighty! I only followed the teachings of Bhagavad Gita to
reach God Almighty. Reading everything related to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana were of great
help... the only two spiritual stalwarts to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in the last about 150
I do not prefer meeting people in person. It does not serve any purpose. In the last about 17
~ 18 years I have only met three persons till date. Initially these persons were very hopeful of pursuing spiritual
path but after few years all of them quit! I have yet to find a person who could spell to me the correct definition
of spirituality or religion!
Most human beings world over do not have the patience,
persistence or perseverance necessitated for pursuing spiritual path! The moment I find one... I shall get to
know of my own! My intuition would tell me immediately. Only one of the likes of Swami Vivekananda is fit to
follow me... none else! Prime reason why Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa had only one serious
Whole of my life I have never been to a temple, church or mosque. Why? I do not believe in
rituals... Sakaar form of life (having a form)! I have always believed in Nirakaar form of God (without a form)!
Most human beings today are unable to fathom wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita for the prime reason that most
confused religion with spirituality!
In my 54 years of travail... not even a single human being on mother earth who could clearly
explain to me difference between religion and spirituality... definition of God... meaning of Dharma or Karma ...
Difficult to fathom yet, it is a fact of life! What we mean when we talk of meditation yoga... the exact meaning of
self realization... enlightenment... none could explain to me!
Everyone wants to follow Bhagavad Gita literally! In the beginning of life they stood in class one... by the close
of life they again stood in class one! In their earthly sojourn of 70 to 80 years none pursued path of pure
spirituality... earned virtues so that next manifestation is an improved lot! Everyone seems interested in the rat
race that reaches nowhere!
Most realized that all materialistic riches gained in present life would be left behind the
moment it was time to call quits... still, pursuing materialistic goals of life is an inherent habit that most find
difficult to break!
You ask for an ashram in India where you could live and gain wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita! When spiritual stalwarts like Acharya Rajneesh (née Osho)... Sri Aurobindo... Swami Vivekananda... Paramhansa
Yogananda could not gain enlightenment in their lifetime... where do you think can I guide you to!
In India in the last about 150 years there have been only two preceptors who reached stage of enlightenment. Only
these two human beings could have imparted teachings of Bhagavad Gita! Other than Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana... there is none in India or abroad who understands the essence of Bhagavad Gita.
The gist of Bhagavad Gita contained in 700 shlokas verses cannot be assimilated literally...
we have to read in between the lines! In spite of the fact that I have above 3000 essays existing on my various
websites... fathoming essence of which any human being world over can reach stage of enlightenment... still, none
tries seriously enough to know the truth!
You sent me your date of birth... without realizing that date of birth has no concern with
path of pure spirituality... path of Bhagavad Gita... path of absolute wisdom! It is not a college degree in
religion or spirituality that is necessitated to learn Bhagavad Gita... the essence of life lay elsewhere! In my
various essays articles are hidden various mantras!
Ever since six years of age I have remained absolutely truthful always and ever. No matter what... my goal of life
always remained reaching God Almighty at the earliest! When I completed my civil engineering... when I got
married... established a family were intermediaries details of which are not important at this stage yet, the
absolute goal of life always remained reaching God early!
I have two lovely daughters... I was never to have a son! Why? This being my last birth... my
8.4 millionth manifestation... my family was not to continue further! Both of my daughters are now settled but I
still have a serious responsibility towards humanity... mankind at large! I was destined for that.
Presently I am passing through last phase of preparation beyond which there shall never be
looking back! I was born with a purpose in life that was ordained to me by God Almighty! Until I complete that
purpose... perhaps I would not leave my mortal frame! The moment I realized God in 1993... I wanted to leave my
body but that was not to be!
The affiliations of family life carry no meaning for me! In my eyes my parents were responsible for my birth... and
that was the end of it! Since childhood I have always considered God Almighty as my father... mother earth as my
mother! All my prayers have always been addressed to God Almighty... and mother earth... no matter what!
At present I am in direct communion with God Almighty
every second of life! Whatever I ask of God... I am immediately granted! Still, I have to enact due karma
(the residual trace of karma) without which nothing happens in the cosmic system! Karma is the controlling
factor of entire cosmos... in absence of karma the cosmic system simply could not sustain!
My advice to you at this stage of life is... pursue your goal of life as did Swami
Vivekananda! The day you develop the willpower demonstrated by Swami Vivekananda... you shall get a preceptor... a
spiritual guide in the form of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa! Still, it will be the preceptor who shall find you and
not vice versa!
If you have the will... you shall find a way to reach God! For any serious spiritual
clarifications (not religious) I am always available online 24 x 7. I have nothing more to say in the
A to Z of Pursuing Spiritual Path explained in words everyone can easily understand and
fathom. More on reach stage of enlightenment - kaivalya jnana can be found at : http://www.vijaykumar.org/Spiritual-Journey/... Vijay Kumar - 3 Sep 2010.
