Query: Spirituality in terms of Bhagavad Gita... What spirituality truly
mean in Hindusim?
The essence of spirituality truly laid in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism...
the foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth! The precepts of spirituality can never be
followed by reading doctrines of Jainism, Buddhist scriptures, the Bible and Koran! The precepts of
spirituality as detailed in Bhagavad Gita summarized it
I was born in Jainism religion yet, diligently following precepts of
spirituality contained in Bhagavad Gita was my destiny! Even when 11 years of age I developed an inclination
towards teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana followed path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom) as detailed in Bhagavad
Both started their search for God via path of bhakti yoga as detailed in
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism yet, both switched to path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom) in the later stages of
their life! It is following precepts of spirituality... path of jnana yoga human beings finally crossed
ephemeral phase of life... reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) forever!
What does spirituality truly mean? What does spirituality truly entail
for mankind! Can God Almighty be reached via path of religion? Spirituality simply means understanding the
real truth of us! We as a human being are a spiritual being on its cosmic journey. We as a soul atman have
manifested the human form to work out its karma... remove dross impurities within!
At any given moment of time human beings lived two lives... one by the
physical manifest form... the form of a human being governed by ego and the other by our true inner self...
our soul atman... the spirit within! For living the physical manifest part of life... knowledge of science
was necessitated! One had to learn a profession to earn a living.
To understand crux of inner life... to understand essence of consciousness that pervaded all human beings... the
entire manifest life in cosmic system... we needed understanding underlying meaning of 700 shlokas verses contained
in Bhagavad Gita! To realize our true essence... to become a pure soul atman in all its cosmic glory... we had to
dwell upon teachings of Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
One could reach stage of enlightenment only by following precepts
contained in Bhagavad Gita... never otherwise! In the history of mankind other than Hinduism only Mahavira,
Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed gained enlightenment. All these man gods reached stage of
enlightenment following precepts contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. They had no other alternative! Only
in Jainism... other than Mahavira 23 more Tirthankaras gained enlightenment!
Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the
battle of Mahabharata between Pandava and Kaurava Kings is unique in all respects! It can be followed by
anyone belonging to any religion, faith or belief! For following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita... one
need not convert to Hinduism ever!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism has universal appeal! Any human being world over can ceremoniously follow the teachings
contained in Bhagavad Gita! But for that... Following path of absolute truthfulness is necessitated. People in West
are more truthful than their Indian counterparts yet, the teachings of Bible prohibited them to know Bhagavad
The prime reason why followers of sacred Bible await coming of an
antichrist... one who shall unveil to mankind the fallacies contained in Christianity... the teachings of
Bible! The teachings of Bible as of today contain impurities. The teachings are distorted... Manipulated by
Christian powers that be!
The interpretation of Bible as available today is not what Jesus Christ
taught in his times! An enlightened one can never preach to mankind untruth ever! After reaching stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) what flows forward from an enlightened one is truth and only truth! An
enlightened person can convey all telepathically without ever opening one's mouth!
The concepts of spirituality as existing in West are absolutely flawed! The concept of spirituality can only be
understood from the viewpoint of Bhagavad Gita... never otherwise! The biggest flaw of Christianity is considering
Jesus Christ as the only son of God. As per Bhagavad Gita... every single human being is a son of God!
As per Bhagavad Gita... as per Mahavira (the 24 Tirthankara of Jainism...
preceptor) every single human being has the potential to become a Mahavira... an enlightened one! The
ultimate teachings of spirituality contained in Bhagavad Gita has only one message to convey... realize our
true inner self at the earliest... become a pure soul atman in all its cosmic glory!
The moment human beings reached stage of enlightenment... all is over for
soul atman within! Devoid of dross impurities within... the purified soul atman need not manifest a body
again! In absence of karma the need for a purified soul atman manifesting a new body now ceased to exist! One
finally crossed over ephemeral phase of life... the world of Samsara (worldly life)!
Spirituality derived its meaning from root word spirit that manifests whole of cosmos as super consciousness
existing within every living being! The spirit existing within living beings including human beings is our soul
atman... the spirit within... the absolute master and controller of human body and not vice versa!
Spirit... the underlying soul atman manifests a human body to work out
its karma... remove dross impurities within! Of itself... no spirit... soul atman can purify self! Similar as
one KG of pure gold existing in a lump of hundred KG of gold ore cannot extract itself of its own and
requires external mining machinery and processes... every manifest spirit... soul atman within requires
undergoing karma to remove the dross impurities within!
It is only through complex process of karma... the manifest spirit...
soul atman finally liberates self from cycle of birth and death forever... regains its lost original pure
prime pristine primordial form which was never possible otherwise! In absence of karma... spirituality
carried no meaning! The manifest spirit needs karma to purify itself!
From the stage of amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in cosmic life cycle... to end stage...
the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
(moksha)... the crux of life remains our soul atman... the spirit within reaching cosmic end of life at the
It is only by traveling uncharted path of spirituality... human beings
finally emancipated forever from cycle of birth and death... reached stage of enlightenment and finally
salvation! Both enlightenment and salvation can never be reached through doctrines of Jainism, Buddhism,
Christianity and Islamic Dharma! One needs understanding gist of Bhagavad Gita.
Why is Bhagavad Gita difficult to understand! God Almighty ordained a
journey of 1.1 million manifestations in human form (earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years) before human
beings reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! For this purpose every human being was imbibed with
an ego to keep human beings under check!
Mounted with a bloated ego... most human beings on mother earth indulged in sin and vice!
This delayed our spiritual journey! For removing veil of ignorance... indulgence in sacred scriptures is
necessitated! Whenever human beings indulged in matters spiritual... our bloated ego prompted otherwise... made us
look towards more greener pastures... material accumulations!
Only by traveling path of nishkama karma... never indulging in fruits of
karma performed human beings finally freed self from cycle of birth and death forever! Controlling five
senses and finally mind made us establish control over ego. Controlling ego is the most difficult part in the
journey of life of a human being. The moment our ego subdued forever... one finally reached stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! In absence of ego negating karma becomes easier!
