is one word which puts a human being on the highest pedestal of life. It is field

form of human
The goal of
Spirituality is attaining salvation
From the beginning of the first manifestation as an amoeba to the
last manifestation (the 8.4 millionth manifestation)... the goal
of every life remains the same.
The phase of
life as a human being announces that the life has come full circle.
It is only as a Human Being that one can get enlightened
(reach the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi) and attain salvation moksha in Hinduism. Reaching
the stage of enlightenment
is the last step in the field of Spirituality.
is living life as it was meant to be... not as we may have desired
or wanted living it. Living
a life of choice is not the forte of all human beings.
Those on the path of pure Spirituality... the true seekers of Spirituality
are sometimes able
to manifest destiny by establishing absolute control over it.
It is a certain fact that
only the true seekers of Spirituality become the masters of their destiny. Knowingly
or unknowingly many people who have a materialistic goal in life travel the path
of spirituality and become successful in life. It was not a happening by chance...
all was the result of a law which cannot err. These highly acclaimed individuals
unknowingly tread the path of pure Spirituality and achieved the goal of their
in other terms means that before we ask God
Almighty for material riches to be bestowed upon us... we need to compensate
by giving something equivalent or more back to the community. This is the path
undertaken by most successful entrepreneurs.
terms of Spirituality we are not supposed to get anything unless we promise to
do something in return... in the system
of God there is fair play all throughout. As we desire... so shall
be the corresponding karma
we would be required to perform. Mere false promises bring us nothing.
It was the forte of JRD
Tata that he always loved his country and the countryman. The benefit of the society
was foremost in his mind all the time. The prime reason why the Tata Empire is
known as the foundation builder of India! Tata name itself is representative of
building a technological Empire for the benefit of entire nation. This is what
Spirituality is all about.
JRD Tata was a trustee par excellence. According to him everything belonged to
God and he was merely a trustee carrying out the dictates of God. In his lifetime
he never built a house for himself. His love for the material riches of life did
not seem to exist at all. His every endeavor was aimed at improving the quality
of life of human life and the country as a whole.
a noble persona JRD Tata was... a true Karma
yogi indeed! He did not live Spirituality rather Spirituality lived
in him. He was a perfect example of how a true spiritual
seeker must live his life. JRD may have never admitted that he lived
a spiritual life but unknowingly he practiced Spirituality every moment of his
JRD Tata followed
the dictates of Bhagwad
Gita throughout his life unknowingly. Apart from being a true karma
yogi... he also excelled in teaching the core values to the society. He was one
of the rarest kinds that have ever dwelled on mother earth as material riches
and comforts in life never attracted him come whatever may.
JRD Tata excelled in human values to the extent that even most accomplished people
on the path of pure Spirituality get dwarfed by his accomplishments. Spirituality
is not only seeking the domain of God but even in day-to-day matters of life every
human being needs to practice Spirituality.
famous saying, "whatever we want others to do unto us... we should do unto them"
forms the core teachings of Spirituality. It is not merely a saying. It has to
be practiced in reality as was preached and advocated by Napoleon
Hill in his famous books "Think
and Grow Rich", "The
Master-Key to Riches" and the famous "The
Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons".
three Bible books by Think
and Grow Rich ... "Think
and Grow Rich", "The
Master-Key to Riches" and the famous "The
Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons" form the core of Spirituality. There is
no argument about that. At every stage Napoleon hill has prophesied that before
we can expect anything from God we need to give something back to the community.
He was also a true practitioner of Spirituality from heart.
Spirituality definitely helps one take control
of destiny. As we proceed on the path of pure Spirituality we tend
to develop a positive approach towards life. Reeling all the time under a positive
attitude of mind...
One is able to fine-tune those critical aspects of life which are an absolute
must if one needs to become the master of his own destiny.

is no place for any negative thinking. One who has fixed a goal in life and always
indulges in positive oriented thinking can not be a loser in life. It can never

It is God within us which guides us on the right path whenever we tend to go wrong.
in every human being a feeling of positiveness all throughout. Floating on the
positive mental plane brings one closer to our goal of life.
It is Spirituality and spirituality alone that prompts and guides one in the right
direction whenever we feel cheated by the senses prevailing upon us. To come out
of the clutches of the five senses is what Spirituality is all about.
If we desire to know God
truly then we need to follow the path of pure Spirituality. It is only as a true
spiritual seeker shall we realize God one-day.
is a Spirituality which cuts short the path and makes the whole world look like
a family. In the spiritual domain there is no space for different religions, dogmas
or creeds. Our wanton desires cease to exist... the moment Spirituality takes
complete control over us!
Spirituality truly is the essence of life. However materialistic we maybe On earthly
plane... there shall come a day when Spirituality would completely wipe us clean
of all the impurities within us.
Spirituality the life or a human being is like a rudderless boat going round and
round in the unfathomable sea of life.
is Spirituality which teaches every human being the real value of life... being
spiritual is not being religious alone... Spirituality teaches us the core values
of life... the real essence of us!
It is only through the medium of Spirituality that God is able to guide the mankind
towards its destined goal. As many human beings... as many different spiritual

clears all doubts related to the concept of God. Whenever in doubt... the wise
follow the dictates of the spiritual
masters of the era! Every spiritual being merges his identity with
the Supreme Being (the Almighty God).
Spirituality confirms that life has to go on... it is a journey to be completed
in many phases (8.4 million manifestations in fact). It is Spirituality which
confirms that the life of a human being of 70 to 80 years is but a trickle in
the total life a span of our soul the atman
within. The total life span of the soul being a maximum of 96.4 million earthly

the dictates of a successful spiritual
master... one who has already covered the journey and has become capable
of guiding the mankind to its logical end.
is meant for living a single span of earthly life. On the contrary Spirituality
guides every living being to its logical end in the unending cosmic journey undertaken
by the soul
our atman within.
It is Spirituality alone which removes the fear of death
from those who have released the pinnacle of spiritual life. Spirituality gives
you a commanding position in life. One can work for above 23 hours per day having
gained absolute control over sleep. This is not only possible but can be observed
by watching the topmost rung of spiritual masters.
presence of Spirituality in our lives cannot be done away with for it forms the
inner core of our manifested physical life. Behind every success lies the core
of Spirituality which guides one inherently all throughout cosmic journey.
practice... when I started in search of God at an early age of 13 years... I was
so confused about life that I thought it was only the religious masters who shall
guide me on the right path. I was so wrong.
It was at the age of 37 that I came in contact with God one-to-one basis. It was
the pinnacle of my spiritual pursuit. My life had come full circle. This was to
be my last manifestation. I had reached the end of cosmic life. The
distinction between Spirituality and Religion were now absolutely clear

is based on true personal
experience of life. Being my last sojourn on Mother Earth I have but

sacred textbooks alone. We simultaneously need to practice pure Spirituality and
try reaching the end of the cosmic life. Achieving salvation in present life would
be something every human being would desire.
