spirituality is best given in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism...
the foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism has no parallel in mankind... one single
scripture that not only details what is spirituality... but also
explains everything related to God Almighty... from A-Z of spirituality!
As per Bhagavad
Gita definition of spirituality is... realizing our true inner self...
our soul atman... the spirit within! It is only through path of
spirituality human beings finally reached spiritual consciousness
that pervaded whole of cosmos! Most sacred scriptures of different
religions state... God is everywhere!
This fact is
explicitly proved by sacred Bhagavad Gita Hinduism! As per Bhagavad
Gita when God Almighty explodes self with a big bang... entire cosmos
forms! Proof of existence of God Almighty lay in start of cosmos!
No God Almighty... there could never be a cosmos! If we exist...
if life exists in cosmic system... all owes its existence to God
We may or may
not believe in existence of God... but absolute cosmic truths cannot
be belied! If we desire knowing God in present life time... if we
want to reach God in present life time... we have to travel path
of spirituality... never religion! God Almighty can never be reached
via path of religion... path of rituals!
stalwarts who gained enlightenment in their lifetime traveled path
of spirituality via path of jnana yoga! Both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
and Maharishi Ramana started their spiritual journey via path of
bhakti yoga. Subsequently both switched to path of jnana yoga (path
of absolute wisdom)!
It is only through path of jnana yoga human beings finally unveiled
cosmic truths contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! As
per Bhagavad Gita God Almighty is the only truth of life! As per
Bhagavad Gita other than God Almighty nothing exists in whole of
cosmos! God Almighty... the sum total of all purified souls atmans
in the cosmos at a given moment of time is beyond purview of normal
Only by traveling
spiritual path... all the cosmic truths unfolded slowly one by one!
It is spirituality that tells us... Journey of life always belonged
to our soul atman... the spirit within and never the human form!
As per definition of spirituality it is not within the capability
of human beings to manifest a soul atman! our soul atman the spirit within soul atman is absolute
master and controller of human body!
Every soul atman...
the spirit within manifests human form to work out its karma...
remove dross impurities within! The moment complete dross impurities
within soul atman removed... it finally reached cosmic end of life...
the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
Travel of spiritual path is necessitated when human beings desire
reaching God in present life time! Those pursuing material goals
of life need not travel spiritual path at all. It is spirituality
that tells us... God Almighty was not to be found in temples, churches
or mosques! God Almighty exists everywhere. How?
When God Almighty
(termed Brahman in Hinduism) explodes self with a big bang... all
purified souls atmans got scattered all over cosmos at unimaginable
speeds! In the melee all souls atmans gathered impurities
similar as a rolling ball gathers moss. To cleanse self of dross
impurities within starts cosmic life cycle of every soul atman!
no soul atman can purify of its own! Every soul atman needs a medium
to cleanse itself similar as one KG of pure gold embedded in a lump
of hundred KG of gold ore cannot separate self of its own and needs
external mining machinery and processes... every soul atman also
requires manifesting a series of 8.4 million bodies to work out
It is only through complex process of karma... life evolved in cosmic
system! Karma acts as accountant general of cosmic system... keeping
details of minutest action performed by living beings! As is our
residual balance of karma of the moment... accordingly manifests
our future! our soul atman the spirit within destiny laid in our hands... not God Almighty!
For karma performed
by us why blame God Almighty all the time! By controlling our karma
every single human being on mother earth can manifest destiny in
totality! By engaging in positive karma... good karma all the time
we not only negate presence of negative karma from previous manifestations...
we also accumulated virtues on spiritual path!
of human body what transfers to next manifestation is our collection
of virtues... never material wealth! The residual balance of karma
of present life at the time of death of body becomes opening balance
for next manifestation! If the residual balance of karma demands
our soul atman manifesting form of a laborer in next manifestation...
our soul atman simply cannot manifest form of a Prince! It just
cannot be... free lunches are not permitted in cosmic system!
To travel spiritual path sincerely and diligently... understanding
meaning of spirituality as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism
is an absolute must! For reaching God... for meeting God in one's
lifetime... traveling path of spirituality as detailed in Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism is necessitated! God Almighty can only be reached
via path of Hinduism... never Jainism, Buddhism or Christianity!
With the coming
of Gautama Buddha developed Buddhism! With coming of Jesus Christ
came Christianity! Apart from Gautama Buddha and Jesus Christ none
else gained enlightenment in Buddhism or Christianity! But in Hinduism
if not thousands... hundreds gained enlightenment in history of
Jainism is a
religion which is never termed religion... but a way of life! Mahavira
was the 24th Tirthankara (preceptor) of Jainism! Before Mahavira
there existed 23 more Tirthankaras (preceptors) who gained enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana)! But it was only in times of Mahavira... the 24th
Tirthankara Jainism took roots! Why?
Until the advent of 23 Tirthankaras of Jainism... none world over
amongst masses was capable enough to decipher messages of enlightened
ones! These 23 Tirthankaras gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
in their lifetime and their jnana (wisdom) remained limited to their
individual self! They left for kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha
in Hinduism) after taking salvation (moksha)!
With the advent
of Mahavira... messages of Jainism percolated to masses and Jainism
became a recognized religion world over! Until our jnana (wisdom)
percolated to masses... it did not carry much meaning in spiritual
world! This happened during times of Mahavira... the 24th Tirthankara
of Jainism... prime reason why Mahavira is recognized most amongst
spirituality we also need to understand religion! Understanding
difference between spirituality and religion is of utmost importance
for serious travelers of spiritual path! For seeking God in present
life time... it has been made amply clear above that we have to
travel spiritual path... never path of religion or rituals!
Spirituality was mandated by God to understand the real self of
us... on the contrary religion is meant to keep the flock of human
beings together! For living ephemeral phase of life of 70 to 80
years in a meaningful manner... Religion is necessitated! For diving
deep into bottomless pit of jnana (wisdom) contained in Bhagavad
Gita... path of spirituality was necessitated!
path is traveling path of unknown! Path of spirituality takes one
directly to abode of God Almighty! Path of religion is necessitated
to keep human beings bonded towards moral and ethical values! In
absence of religion... whole society would become promiscuous...
decay and die! In absence of moral and ethical values society carried
It is field
of spirituality that explained to us presence of super consciousness
within every living being! It is through path of spirituality one
finally realized we are a soul atman... a super consciousness on
its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life
cycle of 96.4 million years! We were never limited by the human
fold... our possibilities are unlimited!
In whatever stage of life we stood today... whatever our karma index...
any human being world over could finally reach end of cosmic life...
the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)! This became possible
by traveling spiritual path... never path of religion... rituals!
of spirituality is best available in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism...
prime reason why human beings world over could reach stage of enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) only through path of Hinduism... never other religions!
Whatever is contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is absolute
All the 700
shlokas verses contain truth but only truth! Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism
is one such scripture knowing which human beings finally emancipated
from cycle of birth and death forever... reached cosmic end of life
when human beings gained enlightenment and finally salvation! Reaching
stage of enlightenment means our soul atman regaining its lost original
pure prime pristine primordial form which was never possible otherwise!
The liberated soul atman after salvation (moksha) finally entered
abode of God... Kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)...
never kingdom of heaven! Kingdom of God Vaikuntha is a point of
no return. The liberated soul atman having entered Vaikuntha (kingdom
of God) remained there until eternity... until dissolution of cosmos
(termed Pralaya in Hinduism) occurred!
in Bhagavad Gita... both heaven and hell are interim places for
souls' atmans to hibernate if matching parents are not available
on mother earth! No human being can enter heaven or hell bodily!
Both heaven and hell exist in sun... heaven in core of sun where
temperatures exceed millions of degrees centigrade!
It is in such
high-temperatures our soul atman feels comfortable. On the contrary
hell exists in periphery of sun where temperatures are considerably
less! It is in such low temperatures our soul atman suffers for
eternity! No sooner matching parents becomes available on mother
earth... the hibernating soul atman immediately manifests a new
body and starts a new cycle of life!
A-Z of spirituality... all is explained in sacred Bhagavad Gita
of Hinduism with crystal clarity! Knower of Bhagavad Gita finally
becomes knower of all... gains omniscience for all practical purposes!
In present materialistic age... Dark Age... metal age human beings
world over can reach God only via path of Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism...
In present times
one need not refer to Vedas (Hinduism revelations) primary of which
are... Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda! The teachings
of Bhagavad Gita suffice in present times! One single scripture
sufficient for human beings to reach stage of enlightenment... wow!
It is Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism that tells us life started in cosmic system as
an amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in
cosmic life cycle! Subsequently it evolved into multi-cell formation,
then insect life, plant life, animal life and finally the form of
human beings! Travel in human form is the most pleasant experience
for every soul atman.
As per spirituality all life forms are interconnected! Right from
first manifestation to 8.4 millionth manifestation... the journey
of life for a soul atman is one single span of life... unbroken...
unhindered! After death of human body family weeps bereaved... but
on spiritual scale nothing much has happened! It is as simple as
changing of guards at Buckingham Palace!
of present body... we as a soul atman manifest another body based
on residual balance of karma from all previous manifestations! We
are truthfully a spiritual being... a super consciousness with unlimited
potential... power! Bound by ego we human beings become slaves pursuing
material wealth on mother earth!
As per Bhagavad
Gita no single soul atman can affect workings of another! In the
circumstances... why blame anyone for our woes! Life in cosmic system
flows smooth... it is only we human beings dominated by a bloated
ego make things go haywire! Instead of pursuing spiritual path...
we prefer traveling path of religion... path of rituals!
Those traveling path of religion... rituals... can such people ever
be expected to gain anything in life! Knowing well that only virtues
get transferred to next manifestation we continue basking in glory
of material achievements on mother earth! Understanding spirituality
is understanding core of life! The sooner we do it... better for
