Who is God


The description of who is god is best detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! The definition of God Almighty... the meaning of God Almighty can only be understood by one who follows the teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita and various Upanishads (independent treatises) of Hinduism!

Who or what is god can be best understood by travelers of spiritual path... never otherwise! Travelers of religious path never get to know what God is all about! God Almighty can never be reached via path of religion... path of rituals! For reaching God Almighty one needs traveling uncharted path of spirituality... the path of unknown!

It has been rightly said, "As many human beings... as many different paths to God Almighty can there be"! For understanding God Almighty we need to understand the philosophy behind creation of cosmos! As per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism, God Almighty is the creator of all things cosmic. How? It is only when God Almighty explodes self... the whole cosmos gets created!

This creation theory of Hinduism as detailed in Bhagavad Gita is absolute truth! None world over can belie this truth! God Almighty can never be reached via path of Christianity, Buddhism and Islamic Dharma! Why? God Almighty can only be reached by one who follows the independent path of spirituality... who believes in the fact that any human being has the potential to become a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed!

Believers of Christianity, Buddhism and Islamic Dharma never believe in the fact that human beings have the potential to become a Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha or Prophet Mohammed in this very life! As per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... all human beings on mother earth have the potential of becoming a siddha... a bodhi... an enlightened one!


Starting from beginning of cosmos... let us imagine a moment when dissolution of old cosmos occurs! At this stage as per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the volume of entire cosmos reduces to size of half a thumb! How is this possible? Believers of science would never believe in this concept... the prime reason why scientists world over failed to understand God!

As per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism apart from God Almighty nothing exists in whole of cosmos! God Almighty is the only truth of life. And what is God Almighty... who is god? The combined power of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos at a given moment of time is what we call God Almighty!

At the time of dissolution of old cosmos (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)... every single soul atman in cosmos reaches cosmic end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)! Does this mean at the time of dissolution of cosmos every single living being reaches stage of enlightenment... yes, the cosmic truth is so!


Devoid of all dross impurities within... the combined mass of all purified souls atmans occupied volume of half a thumb! And this primordial cosmic energy in its prime pure state is what we call God Almighty! This magnanimous unimaginable primordial cosmic energy we call God Almighty unable to contain itself for long in its prime pure state again explodes with a big bang... resulting in formation of a new cosmos... a new beginning of life!

Until God Almighty exploded self... formation of new cosmos was never possible! With the explosion of big bang... all purified souls atmans scattered all over cosmos at unimaginable speeds! In the melee... these hurtling souls’ atmans gathered impurities similar as a rolling ball gathers moss.

To cleanse themselves of dross impurities within starts cosmic life cycle of every soul atman. As ordained by God Almighty... every soul atman needs a maximum of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years before it regains back absolute purity! As per Bhagavad Gita... every human being is a spiritual being on its cosmic journey!


Every soul atman manifests the human form to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)! Human form being the highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle... it is only in human form every soul atman finally reaches cosmic end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!

Every soul atman initially manifested form of an amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in cosmic life cycle! Subsequently it evolves into multi-cell formation... then insect life, plant life and animal life! Before reaching human form... before manifesting human form for the first time every soul atman has already manifested 7.3 million bodies in insect, plant and animal life!

As ordained by God Almighty... as stated in Bhagavad Gita... in the human form alone we have a chain of 1.1 million manifestations for human beings to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! This journey of 1.1 million manifestations is covered by a soul atman in 12.4 million earthly years... the prime reason why reaching stage of enlightenment is difficult... almost impossible!


At whatever stage of manifest life one is... it is possible for human beings to travel spiritual path, reach cosmic end of life in present life time! Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa did it and so did Maharishi Ramana! In the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over only two persons reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!

Both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana realized God in their lifetime... in the limited time span of 70 to 80 years of physical manifest life! Both these spiritual stalwarts... 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!

In present times none can reach God via path of bhakti yoga! For reaching God... for knowing God... for understanding who is God... path of jnana yoga in present times is a necessity... a compulsion! Human beings who think otherwise never get to know God... the prime reason why followers of Christianity, Buddhism and Islamic Dharma never get to know God!


God Almighty is not form of human beings! It is a source of enormous primordial energy... the sum total of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos at a given moment of time! The best part of life is... every single life form contains a portion of God Almighty as our soul atman within! Stated in simpler words... God Almighty exists within us in miniscule form as our soul atman!

If an independent grain of sand is a soul atman... the whole mound God Almighty! Every single soul atman is a piece of puzzle... the completed puzzle God Almighty! Right from beginning of time... the crux of life remains gaining enlightenment in human form at the earliest. Whatever our accomplishment of material world... the moment death takes over... all is left behind!

Seekers of spiritual path never worry about material wealth! They have realized the absolute truths of life! At the time of death of body... something that gets carried forward to next life is our residual balance of karma... positive or negative! Karma acts as accountant general of cosmic system! Whatever the residual balance of karma at the time of death of body... the same becomes the opening balance for next manifestation!


If the residual balance of karma at the time of death demands one manifesting form of a laborer in next manifestation... next life... one simply cannot don the form of a Prince... it just cannot be! In the domain of karma... in the house of God... there never are free lunches! Everything results from a premeditated order that is applicable to every single living being on mother earth.

Enlightenment... self realization... God realization means our soul atman... the spirit within regaining its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form! The moment human beings reached the stage of enlightened one... all is over for soul atman within! The purified soul atman after liberation finally entered kingdom of God (termed Baikuntha in Hinduism)!

For knowing who is God... for reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... one single sacred scripture... Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism suffices! One need not refer to any other sacred scripture of Hinduism ever! The 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita suffice for human beings to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!


People world over engaged in various modes of meditation and yoga with the hope of knowing God one day! Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana reached God in their lifetime... why not pursue the path of those who gained enlightenment in their lifetime! Anything related to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... any literature is of great help!

Apart from Bhagavad Gita and literature relating to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... nothing much is required to travel the spiritual path! The most difficult part of traveling spiritual path is... one may never get a preceptor... a true spiritual master who had realized God in his lifetime to guide at every stage of life!

Thinking that no human being can reach stage of Jesus Christ is the biggest misnomer of all... the prime reason why Christianity awaits coming of Antichrist! One single follower of Hinduism... the revered Bhagavan Kalki... one who unveils fallacies of Christianity would be termed Antichrist! Jesus Christ was born an ordinary mortal but gained enlightenment in his lifetime!


The success of Jesus Christ is attributed to famed Nalanda and Taxila universities of Bharatvarsha (now India)! When 13 years of age... Jesus Christ stowed on a ship to India to learn intricacies of spiritual path... the wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita! The missing years in life of Jesus Christ (from age 13 to 30) explains it all!

Why run after ephemeral riches of life when all shall be lost after death of body! By understanding God... by understanding who we are... human beings not only simplify their life journey... possibilities of their reaching cosmic end of life increases! When God can only be reached via path of jnana yoga... path of Bhagavad Gita... why indulge in rituals... go to a temple church or mosque!

When young 11 years of age... I wanted to see and meet God! By 13, my simple desire to see and meet God turned to firm conviction... in this very life I shall see and meet God... come whatever may! I decided to travel path of absolute truthfulness always and ever... no matter what adversities I faced on spiritual path!


25 years of yoga meditation... I finally landed in laps of God Almighty! In 1993 at 37 years of age I finally realized God... reached end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation! I have become a pure soul atman. The need to manifest a new body further now ceased to exist! The moment I leave my mortal frame... I shall but attain salvation (moksha)!

For knowing God... for understanding God... most human beings world over indulged in various sacred scriptures... literature unknown never realizing that for reaching God traveling path of absolute truthfulness was the prime necessity! How many beings world over do we really think travel path of absolute truthfulness always and ever! Many... no, the number may not exceed two or three!

Enlightenment is that stage in cosmic life cycle when complete wisdom of cosmos is available at our tips! An enlightened one finally becomes knower of all... gains omniscience for all practical purposes! For a true seeker of spirituality wisdom never laid in rituals or scriptural texts... following path of absolute truthfulness one finally reached stage of enlightenment forever!


Remaining truthful all the time... establishing control over five senses and mind became easier! Practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation was a further necessity! Practice of absolute celibacy for 12 years in continuation made full awakening of kundalini possible within one's lifetime!

For reaching stage of enlightenment... full awakening of kundalini energy was an absolute must! The coiled Serpentine energy... lying dormant in base of spine is crucial to gaining enlightenment! As the dross impurities within soul atman removed... our kundalini awakened gradually! As the dross impurities removed completely... our Kundalini Shakti reached the top forehead!

Full awakening of kundalini shakti results in opening of Sahasrara Chakra (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in our brain behind the forehead! The moment this happens... complete wisdom of cosmos is at our tips... one finally becomes an enlightened one... becomes knower of all! Enlightenment is a one-way path... bud having bloomed into a flower cannot become a bud again!


For an enlightened one... material riches of life carried no meaning! By enacting good karma... positive karma... Punya karma all the time... every serious seeker of spirituality finally gained enlightenment at the end of journey! Journey of spiritual path... gaining enlightenment is such an experience that can never be described in words.

For an enlightened one... communicating with God all the time becomes a real possibility! One can finally commune with God all the time! Having realized God in 1993... I am in permanent communion with God every second of life! In my entire lifespan of 54 years, I have yet to find a spiritual seeker who truly desired reaching God!

Most human beings floated on surface... fearing diving deep into bottomless pit of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita! For unearthing pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... we have to take calculated risks! I do not remember how many times I had to eat hell for breakfast... how many contemplations of suicide!


Some say... spiritual path is full of thorns! They get it all wrong. The spiritual path is not full of thorns... it is made of thorns! Traveling the unknown path in absence of a spiritual guru is something not palatable to most... the prime reason why people feared traveling spiritual path! Swami Vivekananda was one such ardent follower of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa who could have gained enlightenment in his lifetime but Swami Vivekananda thought otherwise!

The goal of life for Swami Vivekananda was community service! Swami Vivekananda in his entire lifetime never wanted to go in search of God Almighty! He only wanted to know the abstract truth of life... see God for once! When Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa placed his one leg on his shoulder... Swami Vivekananda was totally mesmerized!

He could not only see God... He realized what God was all about and left! Swami Vivekananda served the community to its best! He died brokenhearted at a young age as he could not barter spirituality for dollars from people in West! Spirituality... no matter what can never be sold! So was ordained by God Almighty.


Every single article of mine that exist on Internet is available absolutely free of all costs for mankind to study... contemplate! But how many people truly understood depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! I get many queries... but intelligent queries are a rarity! Most human beings who pursue God in present times do not understand what God is all about nor do they understand definition of soul atman!

Can such people ever be trusted to know God... realize absolute truths of life ever! God Almighty is never found in temples, churches and mosques... God Almighty is found in simpler... smaller truths of life! If we truly desire reaching God in present life time... we have to travel path of absolute truthfulness always and ever... there is no escape from that!
