via path of spirituality is the only path ordained by God Almighty!
One cannot become enlightened via path of Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity
or following path of religion... rituals! Becoming enlightened simply
means our soul atman... the spirit within finally reaching cosmic
end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
As per sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism the journey of life always belonged to
our soul atman... the spirit within and never the human form! Our
soul atman... the spirit within is the absolute master and controller
of human body and not vice versa! Every soul atman manifests a human
form to work out its karma... cleanse self of dross impurities within!
human form every soul atman reached cosmic end of life... the 8.4
millionth manifestation! The human form is the highest manifest
stage in cosmic life cycle! Becoming enlightened means our soul
atman finally liberating self from cycle of birth and death forever...
regaining its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form!
beings reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally
salvation (moksha)... need for soul atman to manifest another body
ceased to exist! In absence of any karma... need for soul atman
to manifest life further ended forever! Reaching stage of an enlightened
one means becoming a man god like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ or Prophet Mohammed!
enlightened one... becoming a Mahavira... becoming a Buddha is reaching
cosmic end of life! The liberated soul atman finally entered abode
of God... kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)! Vaikuntha
in Hinduism is a place of no return! Having entered Vaikuntha (kingdom
of god) the liberated soul atman never returns back to manifest
Reaching stage of Vaikuntha simply means the liberated soul atman
finally reaching its end goal of life! From the first manifestation
as an amoeba (single cell formation) to last stage as human beings...
goal of life for every soul atman remained liberation from cycle
of birth and death forever! Travel in human form is the most pleasant
experience for a soul atman.
Why would you
want to be enlightened... ask many on mother earth? The answer to
their query is... human beings practically have no other alternative!
Reaching 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment
and finally salvation is the end goal of every human being on mother
The second query
people ask... How to become enlightened? The answer to this query...
how to become enlightened lay in human beings traveling spiritual
path! Only by traveling uncharted path of spirituality... never
religion or rituals human beings finally became enlightened! Traveling
spiritual path meant unveiling the truth of our inner self... our
soul atman the spirit within!
Knowing our true inner self... realizing our true inner self is
what enlightenment is all about! A soul atman reaching its cosmic
glory... its absolute pure form is what enlightenment is all about!
Human beings can cut across shackles of karma by establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind. In the present materialistic
age establishing control over five senses and mind is difficult
yet, not impossible!
human beings needed practicing control over absolute celibacy for
a minimum period of 12 years in continuation... only then full awakening
of kundalini energy was mandated by God Almighty! Practice of absolute
celibacy need not involve establishing control over sexual abstinence
alone... absolute celibacy meant negating the flow of negative thoughts
When not a single
negative thought entered our brain uninvoked... one practically
reached zenith of absolute celibacy... prime reason why 90% celibacy
needs to be practiced mentally! Non-indulgence in sex constituted
hardly 10% of the total job! In a fully charged sensual environment
practicing absolute celibacy is very difficult to practice yet,
For a serious seeker of spirituality... for one who seriously desires
reaching God in present life time... nothing seems impossible on
spiritual path! For one who possesses willpower demonstrated by
Swami Vivekananda... one who could travel with all eggs in one basket...
reaching God in present life time becomes a real possibility!
our spiritual development is presence of a bloated ego! Most human
beings on mother earth failed to control their ego... can such people
ever be expected to travel spiritual path sincerely and diligently!
Traveling spiritual path is not rhetoric of ephemeral world... path
of spirituality demands highest level of perfection that can ever
be practiced by human beings!
persistence and perseverance of the highest order I finally realized
God in 1993 at 37 years of age! This is my last birth... the last
manifestation! I have practically reached end goal of spiritual
life... Mount Everest of spiritual pursuit! This being my last manifestation...
the moment I leave my mortal frame I shall attain salvation (moksha)!
Becoming enlightened... reaching stage of enlightenment in present
materialistic world is very difficult... prime reason why in the
last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over
only two persons gained enlightenment (self realization)... Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana!
Both these spiritual
stalwarts started their spiritual journey via path of bhakti yoga!
Subsequently both switched to path of jnana yoga (path of absolute
wisdom)! As per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... ignorance within our
soul atman can only be removed via path of jnana yoga... never path
of bhakti yoga or karma yoga!
There is one
very important fact that people traveling spiritual path must recognize
in the earlier stages of life! No matter how much I searched...
in my entire life I could not find an enlightened teacher... an
enlightened master who could guide me in the journey of life! Finally
one day I was so cross with God Almighty that I decided to end my
And lo... the moment this thought entered my mind... a thought flashed
to me from top ... why not ask God Almighty himself to become my
guide in the journey of life! And to my surprise, God Almighty willingly
agreed! My quest to find a spiritual master... spiritual guru finally
ending... my entire life was now in the hands of God Almighty himself!
was never looking back! Inherently I knew that no matter what...
I would finally succeed in reaching cosmic end of life when I can
have a communion with God Almighty on one-to-one basis! In the wee
hours of third of August 1993, I was called to the roof of my house
and God Almighty showed me whole cosmos from beginning to end!
I had finally
reached cosmic end of life! Since 4 AM onwards God Almighty gave
me a dictation and only after reading the contents I came to know...
I was an independent soul atman on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million
manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years! Owing
all to absolute faith, I had in God Almighty... I finally reached
end of cosmic life!
If humanity thinks there is no dearth of enlightened persons on
mother earth... let me make it absolutely clear... apart from Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... in the last about
150 years none world over gained enlightenment! Truly enlightenment
is not that easy to gain as most human beings think!
It is only by
traveling in footsteps of enlightened masters... I had finally reached
cosmic end of life! Throughout my life I read literature related
to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Inherently I
knew all along that both these spiritual stalwarts had reached cosmic
end of life... gained enlightenment (self realization) in their
In simpler terms...
gaining enlightenment is becoming a man god like Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed! Reaching stage of Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa or Maharishi Ramana is what life is all about!
Any human being world over seriously wanting to know God in present
life time must dwell in teachings of Bhagavad Gita... the most sacred
scripture existing on mother earth!
I was born in a Jain family... our family preceptor was Mahavira
yet, I believed more in Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era (God
manifest in human form)... termed messiah by most human beings!
Avatars are different form man gods. The power of an avatar is that
of a man God coupled with powers of Chanakya (the most able administrator
in the history of mankind)!
stage human beings can reach is state of an avatar (God manifest
in human form)! Yet, coming of an avatar is necessitated every 3500
to 5000 years to uplift Dharma... to re-establish Dharma (righteousness)!
Man gods can be many but an avatar is one and only one! About 3600
years before now came Lord Krishna... in present people await coming
of Bhagavan Kalki... a messiah of present era... the new age!
enlightenment... for becoming an enlightened one... traveling path
of spirituality detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is
an absolute must! One single sacred scripture... Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism suffices for human beings to gain enlightenment in present
times! Other than Bhagavad Gita one need not refer to Vedas (Hinduism
The 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita suffice for human
beings reaching stage of enlightenment in present materialistic
age. The difficulty is... teachings of Bhagavad Gita can never be
assimilated literally... one needs reading in between the lines!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is a simple document that needs to be
studied independent of every other scripture!
of Hinduism is not the propriety of Hinduism alone... it has universal
appeal! Any human being world over... belonging to any religion,
faith, belief, caste or creed can follow teachings of Bhagavad Gita
even while following... remaining in ones religion! For learning
the gist of Bhagavad Gita one need not convert to Hinduism either!
we are... one can follow the teachings of sacred Bhagavad Gita ceremoniously
without fail! Ever since I realized God in 1993 the contents of
sacred Bhagavad Gita have become like ABCD to me... it is as if
I had dictated the contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my
The journey of enlightenment... the goal of self realization is
meant for those serious seekers of spirituality who desire becoming
enlightened in present life time! Who knows what we shall be in
the next manifestation... why not travel spiritual path now?
it all, I again repeat for becoming enlightened... remaining religious...
following rituals carry no meaning! It is only through path of spirituality
human beings finally gained enlightenment and salvation! Make Bhagavad
Gita your spiritual master... your spiritual guide in the journey
of life and you shall not remain far behind!
Journey of spiritual
life truly belonged to those ardent seekers of spirituality who
search for truth and only truth throughout their life! Traveling
path of absolute truthfulness all along is an absolute necessity
of spiritual path! It is only by following path of absolute truthfulness
one could hear the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman that
seemed to come from within our heart!
Dictated by promptings of my soul atman I finally cleared all hurdles
of spiritual path! In present times if I say... there is not a single
enlightened being world over... I say it with experience as I have
reached cosmic end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
Do not cling
to ephemeral fantasies of life! Do not remain dominated by a bloated
ego! Do not pursue material goals of life! After death of body what
gets carried forward to next life are virtues earned... never the
materialistic wealth! Why linger the spiritual journey when becoming
an enlightened one is the absolute goal of present human life!
No matter what
the present impulse... pursuing spiritual path is a necessity of
present Kali Yuga... Dark Age... metal age! Enlightenment simply
cannot be granted by an enlightened one... what to say of religious
preachers! Enlightenment is not achieved in bulk! At a given moment
of time not many enlightened masters appear on surface of earth!
If 50 Gautama Buddha... 40 Mahavira descended on mother earth simultaneously...
the whole humanity would go haywire! Who to worship or not... prime
reason why at a time not more than one or two spiritual masters...
enlightened ones appeared on mother earth! Gautama Buddha was a
contemporary of Mahavira! Similarly Maharishi Ramana was a contemporary
of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa!
masters in the history of mankind descended from India! India is
the citadel of spirituality... the summum bonum of spiritual life!
Lord Krishna belonged to India and so did Mahavira and Gautama Buddha!
Both Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed owed their wisdom to Nalanda
and Taxila universities of erstwhile Bharatvarsha (now India)!
India is a country
from where germinated most enlightened persons that roamed planet
Earth! In present times one may not find an enlightened teacher
all over India yet, for becoming an enlightened one... for gaining
enlightenment... assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism is an absolute necessity!
of Hinduism contains purity and only purity! Following teachings
of Bhagavad Gita sincerely and diligently any human being world
over can truly become enlightened! What more could a lusting human
form desire out of life!
