(One life to Live - Philosophy of Life)
is Meaning of Life?
is the meaning of Life? The Meaning of Life... what is actually the meaning of
Life? This one question "meaning of Life" is the most asked question on the Internet.
Human Being wants to know and understand the Philosophy behind the meaning of
Life! Why are we here... what is the purpose of our living on Mother Earth...
what is the real meaning of Life? The queries are numerous... there has got to
be a justification for our living. What is the basis of existence of Life on planet
we indulge into knowing "the meaning of Life" we need to understand Life itself.
How do we differentiate between a mortal (living being) and an immobile material
(having no Life within)? For this we need to start from the beginning of the cosmos
itself... The time of the big bang!
the time of the big bang when God Almighty which is but the size of half a thumb
explodes itself... all atmans (souls) get scattered all over the cosmos and in
doing this they lose their pristine purity and as a ball coated with honey gathers
dust while rolling... these atmans (souls) also get impregnated with impurities.
This is the fundamental cause of Life... if these atmans (souls) had remained
pure all the time... the need for Life in whole of the cosmos would not have arisen.
(souls) in their cosmic journey now need a body so that they can purify themselves
and come back to original pristine pure form. These atmans (souls) do not have
the power to purify themselves without the aid of any external body. They need
a body to work out its Karma and in the process the dross within the atman soul
shall get removed.
me explain this further but before that I need to explain the definition of God.
At the time
of pralaya in Hinduism (the time of complete dissolution of cosmos)... the total
cosmos which consists of many universes dissolves back into its original pristine
pure form... this is the form we call God Almighty! The size of the whole cosmos
at this moment of time is half the size of a thumb, which is nothing else, but
the collection of all purified atmans (souls) in the cosmos.
purifying themselves why do the atmans (souls) need a body? This feature can be
explained further by the example of mining.
I need to extract one KG of pure gold (say an individual purified Atman in its
pristine pure form) from a lump of hundred KG of gold ore then I need to pass
the lump of hundred KG of gold ore through the requisite mining process. It is
absolutely clear that this one KG of pure gold can not on its own separate itself
out from the hundred KG of gold ore without the help of an external medium...
it needs requisite machinery to remove the 99 KG of dross within the ore.
Similarly, the unpurified
atman the soul within cannot on its own remove the dross within... it needs an
external medium... a body in order to come back to its original pristine pure
form. And in the process... this so-called impure Atman is required to manifest
a body, which consists of a long chain of manifestations... a total of 8.4 Million
manifestations and a Life cycle of 96.4 million earthly years... a long journey
the total Life cycle in the Life of an atman the soul within which consists of
8.4 Million manifestations and a total journey of 96.4 Million years is well-defined
in the glory of the Bhagavad Gita... the one and only sacred Bhagavad Gita...
preached by Lord Krishna (an Avatar). Lord Krishna descended on Mother
Earth about 3600 years ago... about 1500 years before the
advent of Jesus Christ on Mother Earth.
Gita... the Song Supreme... is music to the ears! It spells out in total clarity
about the meaning of Life... the core of Life itself in its entirety. It defines
the relationship between various forms of Life... the relationship of a Human
Being with single cell formation, multi-cell formation, insect Life, plant Life
and finally the form of an animal before evolving into the form of a Human Being...
the highest stage of manifest Life in the system of God Almighty.
the stage of a Human Being... every Human Being has the power to gain enlightenment
(Self Realization) and finally salvation (moksha in Hinduism). Bhagwan
Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet
Mohammed all gained salvation after reaching the stage of Enlightenment.
These Souls became immortal forever, as they had nowhere else to go having achieved
salvation... the cycle of birth
and death had ceased to exist for them. They had reached the pristine
form of purity... the initial stage from which they had started on their journey
at the time of Pralaya (the dissolution of cosmos) and the big bang (the start
of the cosmos).
I need to explain what happens during the time period between pralaya (the dissolution
of cosmos) and the big bang (the start of the cosmos). Sooner the cosmos collapses
(the complete dissolution of cosmos occurs)... the time of pralaya in Hinduism...
all atmans (souls) in the cosmos achieve the state of salvation by the Grace of
God. All atmans (souls) having become purified and regained their original pristine
pure form... they reduce to the size of half a thumb... the definition of God
In a nutshell,
God Almighty is nothing else but the combined power of all purified atmans (souls)
in the cosmos at a given point of time. This is the one and only definition of
God Almighty. Imagine the mighty Cosmos getting reduced to half the size of a
thumb... this powerful source of energy we call God Almighty is unable to contain
this force of unimaginable energy for long... it explodes with a big bang only
to create a new cosmos... a new source of Life!
interpretation in Jainism is wrong for as per the doctrines of Jainism "in whatever
state the Atmans are... they shall again start cosmic journey from the same stage
in the next formation of the cosmos... it cannot be... unless and until all atmans
in the cosmos comeback to original pristine pure form... the dissolution of cosmos
cannot occur. If the dissolution of cosmos does not occur... how can we expect
a new cosmos to take birth! I was born a Jain... the moment I realized God...
all religions became the same for me... I now do not write my name as Vijay Kumar
Jain but I have now become Vijay Kumar... the man who realized God in 1993.
Glory is to God, the omnipotent
Creator of the cosmos for having showered upon me his Grace to realize god within
this Lifetime. The total Jain community desist my thinking... they feel I have
gone wrong somewhere. They fail to realize that Lord Krishna... who advocated
the preaching's of Bhagavad Gita came around 1000 years before the advent of Bhagwan
Mahavira. They also fail to realize that it was only after Bhagwan Mahavira (the
24th Tirthankara of Jainism) descended on Mother Earth did Jainism took its roots.
It was only in the
times of Bhagwan Mahavira that the complete Philosophy of Jainism came to be understood
by the masses in general. Before the 24th Tirthankara... all the sacred knowledge
contained in the doctrines of Jainism was limited to the Tirthankars, the Arihants
(one who had gained Self Realization and reached the stage of Kaivalya) and the
learned Scholars of the time. It is only when the Teachings or a doctrine gets
precipitated that it has access to the masses. Before that there was no Jainism
religion as such. The advent of Jainism religion can be considered from the time
of advent of 24th Tirthankara Bhagwan Mahavira... not before! The following of
the doctrine of Bhagwan Mahavira came to be known as Jainism.
with the journey of The Soul Within the cosmos... as time passes by... the cosmic
system cools down and gives way to various universes, galaxies, milky ways and
finally solar systems that have planets like Mother Earth rotating around it.
These planets with passage of time become conducive for growth of Life. Time is
now ripe for germination... it is the time for impregnation. Souls Atmans can
now manifest a Life on Mother Earth... and hence shall start cosmic journey of
Life itself... the journey of an Atman as a single cell formation (the first manifestation)...
the journey as an amoeba (single cell formation)!
the different phases of evolution... this single cell formation takes the form
of a multi-cell formation. Subsequently it takes the form of an insect Life, than
a plant Life, an animal form and finally evolves itself as a Human Being... the
highest stage of manifestation in the Life of an atman the soul within. Glory
is to God Almighty for now as Human Beings can an Atman gain its lost pristine
glory... it is now that atman the soul within can come back to its original pristine
pure form... the form of a purified Atman.
journey from the single cell formation to the form of a Human Being requires a
minimum of 7.3 Million manifestations... even as a Human Being there are 1.1 Million
types of manifestations. human beings are the most privileged form of Life on
Mother Earth. It is only as a Human Being can we realize the value of Life...
the meaning of Life itself... can digest the Philosophy and the meaning of Life
need to clearly understand that in all the initial stages of Life... the single
cell formation, the multi-cell formation, the insect Life, the plant Life and
the form of an animal... it was not within the means of these Life forms to assess
the meaning of Life. It is only as a Human Being can we think and know the value
of Life... it is an irony of fate that most Human Beings as on day indulge in
actions that would even put the animal Life to shame.
animals for the sake of pleasure and killing of lower forms of Life by an animal
for the sake of eating is something very different. One indulges for pleasure
and other for the sake of maintaining Life... the body itself. It has really become
difficult to differentiate the animal between the two? back
to meaning of life?
is Way of Life?
is way of Life? Jainism religion is
not a religion... it is always considered as a way of Life! Bhagwan Mahavira the
24th Tirthankara of Jainism always stated that every Human Being has the power
to become Bhagwan Mahavira... for every Human Being has the power within to reach
the 8.4 Millionth manifestation... the last step in the stage of cosmic Life cycle.
of Bhagwan Mahavira are never known as Mahaviras... the name Jainism is not named
after Bhagwan Mahavira, as is the case in Christianity and Buddhism. The followers
of Jesus Christ are known as Christians and followers of Gautama Buddha as Buddhists.
Jainism has always been considered as a way of Life because it follows the fundamental
route of evolution.
word Jaina is derived from "Jina"... one who has won his real self. In other words,
anyone who has won himself is named as Jina... one who has come face to face with
self, our atman the soul within. Having reached the 8.4 Millionth manifestation
one has become "Jina"... a free Atman. The Life cycle for this atman the soul
within has ended. It has gained immortality forever.
doctrines of Bhagwan Mahavira emphasize upon this fact that every Human Being
must work out his Karma in a fashion that we reach the final goal of cosmic Life...
the 8.4 Millionth manifestation and when one shall become Bhagwan Mahavira himself!
He never considered himself as a God. He never stated that he was the only son
of God and according to him every Human one-day reaches the status of Bhagwan
Mahavira in the end. So, why not start on the journey of enlightenment now!
Jainism and in particular
Digambara sect and the Teachings of Jainism carry a larger meaning for the whole
Humanity. Jainism never differentiates Human Beings as belonging to different
religions and sects. Jainism believes in one and only fact that every Human Being
belonging to every religion and creed... the moment one reaches the last manifest
stage... the 8.4 Millionth manifestation... one becomes Bhagwan Mahavira himself.
atman the soul within
freed forever stops belonging to any religion or creed. It is absolutely free...
it has gained immortality! So is the way of Life every Human Being is required
to live and follow for gaining emancipation and finally liberation forever from
cycle of birth and death! back
to what is way of life
Life to Live
have only one life to live... understand that! Clear and out.
the whole cosmic life span of 96.4 million earthly years that every individual
soul the atman within is required to pass through... what significance is of 70
to 80 years of present life spent as a human being. Yet, every human being has
been given the power to live the present life at its best. No compromises on that.
It is not merely
the time factor which matters most... it is the quality of life lived every day
which makes us worthy of living as a human being... the highest manifest stage
a living being can take on mother earth. Always remember that it is only as a
Human Being one can gain the stage of enlightenment. It is not in heaven or hell
that one can get enlightened.
one life to live: give life its very best shot you can give! Bill Gates, Edison,
Einstein and JRD Tata were not the produces of a single day of effort... they
spent days months and years struggling to achieve the goal of their life... something
which was dearest to them from the heart. They succeeded in life for they knew
how to overcome obstacles, the gossips and face the community as it were.
One life to live: Live life
as if there shall never be another day! Do not simply while away time for the
sake of it. Live for the community and the values you have always cherished in
your life. Human life is after all a gift from God... we have but to spend it
become a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed in the present
life for you have only one life to live. It is only in billions that one chooses
the path to become a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed.
Gaining enlightenment is the final goal of every human life... strive for it within
this life for you have only one life to live.
one life to live... Put your best talents forward and prove to the world your
worthiness. Always remember that in the cosmic system you are the one and only
one who has an ingredient of becoming a master in your own field. No matter what
none other can excel you in that field. It is your destiny and the will of God
that shall always guide you on the right path.
life by choice and not out of compulsion for you have only one life to live. Listen
to the sweet small inner voice coming from within your heart... the voice of your
soul the atman within. It shall never guide you on the wrong path. Choose the
journey of your life wisely and there shall never be any regrets later on.
You have only one life to
live! Spend your life the way you would want to live it... not what others may
have chosen for you! Be they your parents, teachers or friends... they can always
be your benefactors... always remember it is you can only you who have to choose
the goal of your life. Live life the way you like it. You are the Prince or the
Princess of your life... none other can force or deviate you from your chosen
path! It is a different matter that in the process some feelings may get hurt
but rest assured in the end everything gets okay.
remember that God helps those who help themselves. You have to work out your karma
in a way that you shall be able to accomplish the goal of your life. Prove to
the world that you are the only one of your kind in the whole world who is the
best for your chosen field of working. Do it now before it is too late for you
have only one life to live.
life to live is not as saying. It has to be practiced in every deed in day to
day life. No one is perfect in this world. Everyone has limitations. The moment
our limitations are over... one reaches the stage of absolute purity and gains
enlightenment… Liberated forever from cycle of birth and death!
fear the unknown or even death... you never know what life has in store for you
the moment next! Always look at the brighter side of life... do not forget that
the most successful people in life always had their worst pitfalls. It was only
the patience and the persistence practiced which kept them alive. Patience and
persistence is to be practiced every moment for you have to reach your goal come
whatever may! Never forget you have only one life to live!
the beauty of the seas, mountains, the lovely Wayside Brooks and the beautiful
nature. Do not wait for tomorrow. Live the present. You have to make it happen
come whatever may. Go climb the mountains, explore the hidden frontiers of nature...
always remember that you have nothing to lose in the bargain. Trust the Almighty
God and always remember that you have only one life to live... so do it now!
Right from day one and until
the last breath... always remember that we have only one life to live! If you
need to spend time with your siblings... do it now. There may never be a tomorrow.
Tell them all how much you love them from your heart. Make them feel the important
person they are in your life. Do not slip for you have only one life to live.
Whatever needs to be done has to be accomplished in the present life.
Life is meant to be lived...
not passed by as most of us do. Take hold of your destiny and become the master
of the fate. If you do not know the path... seek the guidance of an accomplished
spiritual master. Study the autobiographies and the biographies of the famous
and the successful people. The clues are always hidden in the so-called lighter
moments of life. These people were really great for even the most trivial moments
mattered for them.
a life of passion not greed. Reach the Mount Everest of your life. How happy Tenzing
Norgay and Edmund Hillary would have been on reaching the top of the Mount Everest!
It is a different matter altogether that Edmund Hillary felt remorse for now there
was no other mountains higher than Mount Everest for him to climb.
the earlier moments of life Bill Gates was a lonely person for he had only a caring
mother to take care of all things that mattered to him. Even his school turned
him out considering him a scholastic failure. He had an ambition... a chosen one...
he fought for it and earned it... all the time guided by his mother. He succeeded
in the end.
I proceeded in search of God at the young age of 11 years... I had nowhere to
go. None to guide in the whole world... it was a clear-cut uncharted territory
I was to have traveled. I might have succeeded or even failed. It was only my
determination, the patience and the persistence which paid in the end.
25 years of practicing spirituality absolutely alone all the time I had the vision
of God. It was a meeting on one-to-one basis. I had succeeded and reached the
end of my cosmic life. On earthly plane... most people consider me a failure...
for I had reached the end of my cosmic life. I was much ahead of the present times...
the people today are unable to fathom the depths of the wisdom I have gained.
Having gained self
realization I have nowhere else to go. I shall within this life attain salvation
moksha in Hinduism and liberate myself from cycle of birth and death forever.
Glory be to God! What value if people On earthly plane do not recognize a truly
God realized soul. I have achieved the purpose of my life.
is my life and I am the master of it. I have live it on my own terms. For me success
does not lie in the material riches and the wants. Indeed... I have learnt the
true meaning of life... life as it was meant to be by God.
finally summarize that you have only one life to live... make the most of it as
long as you were healthy, fit and fine. Who knows what God has in store for you
the next moment! back
to one life to live
