Path of Meditation

Meditation is the path... not a goal of life! If we desire traveling the spiritual path... we need establishing a spiritual goal of life. My goal in life was reaching God in present lifetime. Others may have a different goal! Having a goal in life is journey half complete. Above 95% people world over never form a goal in life... their life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean!

Once we establish a goal... we need understanding meaning of meditation! Meditation simply is cleansing our real self... our soul atman... the spirit of all dross impurities contained within! This is made possible by gaining absolute control over the five senses and the mind. In the present Kali Yuga... the metal age... Dark Age... this is a difficult proposition but not impossible!

In meditation we need not concentrate on the center of a dimly lit bulb sitting in a dark room. The correct process of meditation is self inquiry. The approach of spirituality is based on logistics. Either you are correct... or it is me... whoever is correct in the end wins the race. There is no scope for ambiguity on the path of pure spirituality.

No query can end of its own! There is always one final answer to every query. If we are truthful... either we are hundred percent truthful or we are not. One simply cannot say... I am 99% truthful! It simply would not work on the path of pure spirituality. Spirituality demands highest level of perfection... everything has to be hundred percent!

Most human beings in life lead midway... some at 90%... some at 92%... some at 95%... and some at 99% like Acharya Rajneesh (aka Osho). In the end phase of his spiritual pursuit, Acharya Rajneesh mixed sex with spirituality. Such things are simply not permitted. Sexual indulgence has no place in the field of spirituality.

Lying in the Shavasana pose of yoga... I always meditated on God... asking different queries... and getting their answers from the unknown! This is what self inquiry is all about. The process of self inquiry... as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana... the path of Neti (not this, not this) does not have a parallel. It is through the process of Neti I finally realized God in 1993.

Neti (not this, not this) is best practiced in the Shavasana pose of yoga. All my life I followed this path of meditation. It never failed me! Whatever our goal of life... we must reach the end logically! Querying, answering and proceeding ahead step-by-step is what spirituality is all about. One day... after establishing full control over five senses and the mind... we finally reach the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi (the stage of nothingness). This experience can never be expressed in words.

On the path of meditation... practicing absolute celibacy for a period of 12 years in continuation is a necessity... an absolute must! In absence of practice of absolute celibacy... full awakening of the Kundalini is just not possible. The dormant Kundalini shakti lying in the base of the spine... the moment it awakens fully... one gains omniscience... reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... a point of no return! Once awakened... one can never return to daily chores.

Sage Vishwamitra... a contemporary of sage Vashistha always remained jealous of him. Always keeping angry about one thing or other... God Almighty decided to teach him a lesson. On the sight of a lonely woman taking bath in forlorn circumstances in deep dense jungles (forests)... he fell from grace! Sage Vishwamitra had to repeat the practice of celibacy all over again.

On the path of pure spirituality... there are no short cuts! The path to the house of God is fixed... difficult... not unattainable! More difficult during the present metal age when wanton desires and greed for materialistic riches take precedence! The lure and attractions of the physical manifest world make it tough to travel the spiritual path. Only people like Swami Vivekananda make it!

It is a different matter that Swami Vivekananda did not gain enlightenment in his lifetime. When his spiritual master Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa asked him bluntly why he had come to him if his aim of life was not reaching God, Swami Vivekananda replied, "He just wanted to have a glimpse of God"! The goal of his life was community service... serving children of God at its best.
