Salvation in Hinduism highlights concept moksha path
Is it not true that only
after gaining Enlightenment
Realization) that one reaches the stage of Moksha
Moksha is that ephemeral truth of life without which human beings
cannot sustain themselves. The cause of the human body... the process
all leads to our Soul
gaining liberation from the cycle of birth
and death (Moksha) forever.
the ultimate truth of life... none can just do without! In present
life we may or may not pursue Moksha as the ultimate goal of all
life... inherently and spiritually
our Soul Atman is bound to pursue this one and only goal in the
life of every Soul Atman in the Cosmos.
If gaining liberation from cycle of birth and death (i.e. achieving
the stage of Moksha) is the only goal of every soul our atman within...
and knowing the fact that our body is but clothing for our Soul
Atman... our Soul Atman... plays the governing role! Whatever be
our present goal in life... the ultimate goal of our cosmic life
remains the same, gaining Moksha! (Salvation).
the state of Moksha Salvation is reaching the Mount Everest of physical manifested
life. There is nothing beyond Moksha that is required to be achieved in this life.
Moksha is that stage in the life of a human being when one cuts across all the
shackles of senses and the mind.
Unless we gain absolute control over the five senses and the mind... we cannot
achieve Moksha in this life.
Gaining absolute control over the senses and the mind is a complex process. One
has to diligently take control of all the senses one by one and the moment we
establish absolute control over all the five senses... controlling mind is easy
to achieve! Our five senses help us live the physical manifest form of us. They
have got nothing to do with our true inner
self... our soul atman within us
What is the correct
process that we can gain absolute control over the five senses and ultimately
the mind for us to achieve the stage of Moksha? For cutting across the various
barriers of senses... we need to maintain more and more purity in our day-to-
day dealings. The more pure our thought process... the sooner shall we be able
to gain control over the senses.
As practiced in Jainism...
it is the concept of Bhava Karma
which plays the governing role. Before committing any physical action...
we must have thought over it. If we are awarded -10 points for committing
a grave sin
like murder then we also get negative marking for negative thoughts
incurred by us before committing the murder. Does this mean that
committing a sin only in thoughts attracts negative marking... yes!
Even by thinking wrong of others... we are incurring a sin and this
result in our getting established on a lower pedestal on the spiritual
For attaining Moksha... if we need to establish control over the
five senses then it becomes mandatory for us to follow the concept
of Bhava Karma and desist from even thinking wrong of others. This
is the only process for maintaining absolute purity of thought.
The concept of Bhava Karma in Jainism has no parallel in the History
of mankind. It is only traveling on the path of Bhava Karma that
Saints and Sages were able to control anger
and purify their thinking patterns.
As we gain more and more purity of thoughts on the path of attaining
the stage of Moksha... we shall find that gaining absolute control
over mind is within our reach. Gaining control over the five senses
is the most difficult part in the life of a human
being on the path to attaining Moksha. But it is a goal
not unachievable! Patience and persistence both play a vital role
in establishing firm control over the five senses. We have to practice
Patience and Persistence at each and every stage lest we may not
be able to gain Moksha in this life.
Establishing control over anger is only possible after we have developed
a habit of forgiving
one and all... whatever be the cause or the reasoning! Forgiving
one is a one-sided affair. Compassion is required to be practiced
at every stage of the physical manifested life. Without Compassion
and the Power
of Forgiveness... none reaches any worthwhile stage on
the path of spirituality. Every true Saint or a Sage has developed
the power of Forgiveness to its extreme for it is only after controlling
anger that one reaches the stage of Moksha in this life.
speaking... to attain the stage of Moksha... we need to gain Kaivalya
Jnana (Omniscience) and this is possible only after establishing absolute
control over the Senses and the Mind. The moment one gains control over the Senses
and the Mind... one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi... the stage when one can indulge in one-to-one dialogue with
Maintaining absolute purity of thought by practicing the path of Bhava Karma...
practicing Compassion (by which one develops control over anger) Patience and
Persistence ... we reach nearer our cosmic goal of life... attaining Moksha! There
is nothing nobler in life than reaching the stage of Moksha in present life.
