You always wanted to know


Q2 ... How did you come to believe or what was that phenomenon that made you believe you have realized God?

Q3 ... You have written that you had Darshan of God -My Query is that what kind of a vision of God did you have, a mental or a physical vision. was it some light or looked like some person or some conventional God we worship or is it unexplainable.

Q2 ... Do you have any information about the type of Life a realized being's body lives while waiting extinction of Karma? Do you believe that a realized being's body disappears rather than die a natural death? Just as ignorance disappears in to thin air.

Q2 ... Is there step by step procedure towards Moksha or it just happens according to our past Karmas. How can we go fast . I had read book which says: Just say to soul within, whatever you are doing to " God you are doing it "

Q2 ... What is the point in having so many Religions....isn't it just confusing us more. which one is right? how do you substantiate your argument? Wouldn't it be easier if we all believed in one universal spirit and consider Humanity as our Religion? Don't you think the World would have been a much better place if all these different Religions were not here? Is it that God brought all these Religions to earth, deliberately trying to divide the Human race? Its very similar to the caste system and as crappy as the caste system ... we are all so same and yet so different. why? Doesn't goodness depend on 'Karma'? Isn't 'what you pray' more important than 'how you pray'? I still have so many questions but I'm not quite sure if someone is actually going to pay attention. Do reply to let me know.

Q2 ... What is the difference between Purusha and Brahman? If there is two words the must been two meaning?

Q3 ... You have the three body physical astral and causal. To what level of Samadhi corresponds each of the body? of what substance is made the astral body? of what substance is made the causal body? If you take all the chakras and the nadis together, does all that constitute structure of the causal body or the structure of the astral body? Are the chakras a kind of interface between annamaya kosha and pranamaya kosha or between manomaya kosha and pranamaya kosha? What are the organs of perception in the astral World? What are the organs of perception in the causal World?

Q4 ... The ego ( Ahamkara ) is part of the relative. So it is an object. of what is made that object?

Q5 ... Do the gunas could be perceived? If yes what it looks like?

Q6 ... Do you have a list of people who are awake like you?

Q7 ... What is the fastest way to get God Darshan?

Q2 ... I realize we are just Spiritual beings in earthly bodies. As the body returns to dust the Spirit returns to God who gives it. Will your Spirit turn to a dog when you die or is it going to be a ghost. As Spiritual beings I believe ,a spirit of a man remains a spirit of a man. It can not become a dog, cow, rat, pig etc?

Q2 ... If Jain dharma is before Hinduism, why all the Jain Tirthankaras were born in Kshatriya families?

Q3 ... When did actually Jain Religion was established and what was the main reason for deviation?

Q4 ... From the absolute reality stand point, there is no beginning or no end, then how was the universe created and how did the Humans were born and how did they accumulate Karmas and desires?


The truth of your own self "The I within"!!! Who are we .. a Human Being? What cosmic role has one to play?

Every Human Being is in Essence a cosmic being ... a virtual source of energy living in X-dimension wherein we term it as a soul Atman in our Spiritual terminology. It manifests on Mother Earth and takes a body and this bodied form we see is known as a Jiva (a soul encompassed in a body) visible to us as an insect, plant, animal or a Human Being.

During the various stages of travel (the evolutionary process inherent in every being) of this cosmic being, one changes form after form until it finally evolves into a fully developed being we know as a Human Being.

Every soul "the Atman within" has the same attributes as that of God, the Creator ... same manifest power that we attribute to the Lord. As long as every Human Being, a manifest form bound by the so called laws of the society, considers itself a slave of the cosmic system ... it shall remain engrossed in a self hypnotic state. The moment it Realizes-God ... shall it come face to face with the bare truth and the potential which lay hidden.



Purpose of creating mankind and the Cosmos?

God, the Creator is an inherent power which manifests the total cosmos. It is not an inert power. It is inherently active from within. Soon after Pralaya (end of cosmos) occurs, God comes into its original form ... the form it always has at the start of Cosmos. As this form has an evolutionary tendency it can not sustain in this form for long and explodes as a "Big-Bang" ... the theory discovered by scientists only recently but is 100 percent truth. Thus is created a new Cosmos for all Souls Atmans to start the journey all over again.

This theory of Kalpa (total Life span of a Cosmos) are not mere stories or myths but a cosmic truth which even the scientists can never negate!! God is there to be ... Cosmos is there to be ... As long as these two are there, Human Beings are there to be! Why bother about the purpose of creation of mankind at this stage?



Once a Human Being has been born ... what is the ideal goal of his Life?

From the origin of the cosmos until Pralaya (end of cosmos) occurs ... One in a billion, every now and then seeks goal of his Life as emancipation from mankind (freeing one-self forever from the shackles of birth and death and gaining God hood). How many of us ... normal citizens of the World understand, that following the path traversed by Jesus, Buddha and Mahavira is the only noble path to gain realization. Life is full of Sukkha (happiness) and Dukkha (pain).

What may follow next you never know ... Why not once and for all seek liberation from such a bondage of Life! Though extremely difficult for a normal Human Being to understand the concept, to follow the sayings incorporated in Koran, Bible, Hindu, Buddhist and Jain Scriptures, you shall have to follow them before the end of your journey ... There is no escape.

What of the goal in this Life!! You are born, you live a Life full of happiness and feel contented. What when you are nearing eighties and time has come for you to leave the World physically ... what of the goal of the physical Life? Think cosmic not global. You are a cosmic being. Your goal is also cosmic ... not linked by 70-80 odd years a Human Being spends on an average in a single Life span on Mother Earth.

You must have observed an iron Smith who shapes a utensil out of wrought iron. How many times he heats the raw iron and then after beating it to give it a shape dips it into a pot containing water, to cool of the excessive heat contained in the iron bar ... one may loose the count or may not consider it essential but, finally he is able to shape the raw material into a finished utensil he aspired for. Similarly every Atman has to spend different phases on Mother Earth by manifesting different Life forms in different lives. I again repeat "There is No escape from this". One may commit suicide or get himself killed by various unnatural means but does their journey end! One has to manifest a body again and again until one "Realizes" and gains liberation from the cycle of birth and death (and that too burdened by the heavy sin of committing murder of self).

The form you take in next Life is not of your choosing but burdened upon you based on the resultant Karma of your last Life ... Why choose to die an un-natural death!!! Understand the cosmic goal of Life which is same for all beings ... Emancipation from cycle of birth and death and that too for ever. What pursuit can be nobler than this! Skeptics who do not believe ... shall also die one day but burdened with a lot more of unanswered questions (within their conscience) than an theist ... to what avail!!



How do you differentiate between the physical and cosmic goal of Life?

There is no difference between the two except for the fact that the physical goal of a single Life span of 70-80 years is but a mile stone covered in the 8.4 Million mile stones maximum) to be covered by a being in one cosmic Life span of upto 8.4 Million Earth years before one finally liberates. To realize early and cover the balance Life span in the present life is within the control of every individual Human Being ... One need not go far but get hold of a Guru (Spiritual teacher) who can impart the Teachings of 'Gita' to you.

The moment you realize the secret contained in the sacred Scriptures, your body is there visible to all Human Beings as usual but within you now is a glowing pure Atman soul form ... Ever more impatient to leave the burden of the manifested body at the earliest. You merely laugh reconciling over the fact ... As a physical (ordinary) Human Being you wanted to become immortal to bodily enjoy the beauty of Mother Earth and nature for ever ... but of now, you want to get rid of the body ... sooner the better.



What of the family, wife and children of a realized soul in this World?

All are children of God. We have all emanated from the same source and the cosmic goal of all is same. Where is the worry? Who am I attached to! Physical bonds are for passing the Life on Mother Earth happily. The cause for worry starts when we start viewing and considering material riches as our owned sole propriety. Nothing belongs to us. All is his. To keep living in the make believe World, inspired by Ego is ... living in a fools paradise. If anything belonged to you then you should be able to carry it along with you even after physical death? ... Which never can be.

Every individual has to cross over the Ocean of various lives to be spent on Mother Earth individually. None is dependent on another but one can take guidance and help from others and make them his guide posts on cosmic journey ... to avoid the pit falls which may endanger your completing the journey early.

Your taking help from others does not necessarily mean taking help from other Human Beings! In Essence all Human Beings are Atmans manifesting a bodily form. All Atmans are ever willing to help each other out ... How? Is for each one of you to find out individually. sacred Scriptures of all Religions of the World provide you an insight into the different paths one can take to complete cosmic journey. Your partners in your physical journey do need a base for physical survival ... provide it and you can enter Sanyasa Ashram ( Living within a family ... you can live the Life of a sanyasi), a perfect Yogi ... Who can within this Life attain Self Realization.

Nothing can be noble for a Human Being than gaining God-realization, seeing Almighty God, face-to-face. Never ever worry ... what may happen to them. Go ahead ... Perform your Karma. 24 hours are more then enough to earn your daily bread and simultaneously gain purification ... the only and real path to Self Realization.



Who is God and our duty towards him?

All that we see in the Universe was made by God, the Creator of the cosmos. Do not imagine God to be of the form of a living being. It is a creative energy source ... you may imagine it to be a mighty computer which governs and controls the entire Cosmos. "Everything moving ahead and without a past" is the basic framework within which works the system of God, the Creator. Man made past is for people to reenact and re-live happenings which have passed and gone away ... to provide temporary relief to the needy and concerned (acting as gate-valve to release accumulated tensions and stresses of the day).

Those who imagine God to be a myth and consider all happenings in the Universe to be the handiwork of a self evolving process and not the act of a Creator or God are to be pitied ... Nothing falters in the God made Cosmos. All is well planned ... As you shall sow, so shall you reap. If the World was not the out come of a well planned evolutionary process ... Everything would go haywire but, nothing of the sort happens!

The whole Cosmos ... every little operation, even the minutest happenings are the result of a well planned process. From beginning of the Kalpa (total Life span of a Cosmos) i.e. from the start of Big Bang to the time of Pralaya (end of cosmos)... all occurrences are premeditated.

Whenever we think of God, we must try to think in comparative terms ... His domain compared to ours. All, everything in the cosmos is his ... We do not possess even a speck of dust for where comes the time to leave the Worldly possessions ... We only carry the 'Punya' (Spiritual inheritance earned by us in this Life .. Result of plus Karma and which ultimately governs what our next Life shall be) or 'Papa' (Inheritance earned by us in this Life which shall bring us nearer to Satan .. Result of negative Karma) to the next journey. What comparison!! One, who is Ego less and us ... Full of Ego that, we even consider God as puny and try to belittle him by our deeds. What is the ultimate gain!!! We incur the wrath of God unknowingly, resulting in untold miseries and hardships.

What was the gain of Kansa, maternal uncle of Lord Krishna in rebuking Krishna and trying to murder the young child immediately after his birth! What did King Hrinya Kashipu gain in trying to rebuke Prahlad, his own son for worshipping Vishnu, an incarnation of the Lord! Result ... He was executed by the Lord himself. There are numerous instances to quote in history which confirm the belief again and again in the existence of Lord.

Do we gain anything in despising God ... Nothing, but misery. What if we pray and atone for all sins committed by us knowingly or unknowingly. The power of prayers? the respect Humanity has for Man Gods ... Jesus, Buddha, Mahavira and Prop. Mohammed needs no mention. Why care for the few who are born atheists! It is for them to learn the Eternal truths hidden in sacred Scriptures of all Religions of the World. The poor ones ... devoid of the love God has for mankind as a whole. You ask and strive for and Lo! your efforts meet with success. What more could have the Humanity asked for ... The power to think and guide your destiny to your cosmic goal is within your hands. You have only to search for it!

We are mere puppets in the hands of God but are we to fear one Who created us!!! He Forgives one and all ... even our gravest sins and what of us ... we fail to Forgive one even for the smallest offenses!

We need the blessings of Elders and Grace of God to complete our cosmic journey. We do not have the power to make a choice but we certainly can pray and ask God to grant us what we sincerely need. All sacred documents say the same language "Pray and it shall be granted". What they do not say (or is not clear to most human beings) is that you must have "100 percent Faith" in the existence and system of God in absence of which ... You shall miss all which can be truly yours.

Even Jesus, Buddha, Mahavira and Prop. Mohammed gained Enlightenment and became one with God only with his grace. Every individual who gains Self Realization is able to achieve all within his might. In the present form of a Human Being you have only one Life to live!!! Why not attempt for Grace of God within this Life and gain realization.

All beings including Human Beings have a sacred duty to perform towards the Creator, the omnipotent God. All affluent ones from the richer strata of the society ... are they not supposed to support the deprived segment of the society ... Those who incurred the wrath of God in their earlier lives for not adhering to the doctrines laid down by him and percolated through to the common man through sacred documents. It is our sacred duty to help one and all ... lest we shall never earn "Punya", the most precious possession of a human being on Mother Earth!

We have 24 hours at our disposal ... We do not want to spare even minutes for him. What of being bestowed with super natural powers! The power to glide through the skies, scan the surface of Moon, perform deeds which no other species on Earth can dream of ... Perform anatomy on beings to its core and seek knowledge of the interiors of a body!! Yet we keep away from him ... tend to become religious by so called donations to charitable Institutions!!! What when our end is nearer ... Shall God's grace be with us for having donated to the coffers of so called Spiritual Institutions, who proclaim to be nearer to God!!

Our genuine concern for the poor, the down trodden denizens of the society, forgiving them for their past deeds ... Shall be the streak of silver lightening which shall embark us on a mission towards God, to earn his grace in the end. God alone and none else promotes all causes for the good of Humanity. We are mere instruments in his hands ... doing his bidding all the time.

One commits so many mistakes in a day knowingly or unknowingly ... still forgets to pray to god? To atone for all such mistakes, prayers are the only medicine! What more are the possessions of a common man!!! Praying to God is free of all costs, available in abundance to one and all without any strings attached ... Yet to what avail!

You go to an ashram! You can not meet the Head without an appointment. Guru Dakshina is considered a must and is 'expected' to be paid by one and all. Do you ever need to seek an appointment with God? Think over!!! For all things available freely ... water to drink, air to breathe, Sunshine to give energy and prayers to God ... we have the scantiest regards. What of such Human Beings! Must we drop a tear in sympathy or pray to Lord to Forgive them and atone for their sins by working harder.

Do we ever imagine that World sustains owing to prayers of these 10 percent ... who compensate for the balance 90 percent. Think!!! Are they not the true saviors of mankind? We owe our lives to them, they are not yet realized but on path to realization. They serve God ... not owing to their selfish interests but for their love for mankind at large!!


I am sorry to say, but your prediction about the "Future of the World" is definitely proved wrong. Does this shake your believe??

If I would be able to predict the exact happenings as they occur, I would become the richest man on Mother Earth. So is not the system designed by God. Everything on Mother Earth is governed by the system of mass Karma. As we sow so shall we reap.

The moment I realized God in 1993, it was all over with me. I felt God had given me certain powers and I wanted to experiment with them. I inherently knew that Nostradamus was a being of high intellect and he had excellent powers to foresee the future. I concentrated on the power known as Nostradamus and immediately I was plunged into the mental wavelength on which Nostradamus operated. You would not believe what happened ... Immediately messages started flashing in and I concentrated on the forthcoming 13 years of World history. I started from the level where Nostradamus had left when he left his mortal frame. I have written what God has dictated to me.

Revelations can come to anybody who develops his mental intellect to a certain level. But one thing always has to be kept in mind that revelations can change. All revelations are based on the theory of mass Karma. What ever is performed by the Humanity at large ... they have to bear with the results.

You will agree with me that the present mankind in the Kali Yuga of today is embroiled in trading bitterness amongst one another. The mutual trust which existed between Human Beings 20 years before has greatly diminished. A feeling of fear has over taken Humanity and this fear has led to increase in prayers world-wide. The respect India has started getting world-wide is indicative of the Forgiveness which India exercised in dealing with Pakistan on the Kargil issue. This increased fear and subsequent prayers has temporarily delayed the occurrence of World war 3 which is now likely to start in 2002.

Every single word of mine on the net is a direct dictation from God. I never write anything on my own. It is beyond my intellect and capability. The moment I Realized God, dictation's from God have become a regular feature. Sometimes the dictations continue for hours and at times months pass. Living in Grihastha Ashram and continuing with the Spiritual endeavor is at times difficult but Life is so. Being my last Life I have to impart the Cosmic wisdom before I leave this mortal frame.

When I started on this journey at 11 years of age, I had not the slightest inkling that I would see God one day in the present life, leave apart the question of how many years from now! But one thing I was very sure of was that if God was to give a Darshan to someone on Mother Earth it was to be me. Inherently I knew that purity of Mind was to be maintained at all costs. Even as a child I could see people cheating God when they were alone in the surroundings of their house or the office. When I used to challenge such people of their unTruthfulness they used to counter that no one had seen them making a theft. I inherently knew that these people were fooling their own self for God was everywhere and he takes care of all our actions be they good or bad.

One had to be hundred percent truthful if he ever was to realize self in the present life ... a very difficult task as in the day-to-day mundane affairs of Life sometimes even unknowingly one may be untruthful and unless one knows the right path of repenting how to absolve self out of the situation. There had been a King Vikramaditya in India in the past who was famous for his Truthfulness. I followed his path of Tapasya (prayer) ... and one-day I knew I had become an absolutely truthful Human Being.

Still, there was no God to be seen anywhere. I subsequently Realized that apart from being truthful one had to practice celibacy to its extreme end. Not involving one self in sexual activities of any nature alone is not sufficient. The complete definition of celibacy meant not involving one self in sexual activities physically but even mentally. It was very difficult for me to find out what was the meaning of mental sexual activities. In spite of all my best efforts in controlling sexual desires I was getting nowhere. Sweet dreams is a common occurrence. I had to somehow over come it. I realized as everyone on Mother Earth were sons and daughters of God, I had to treat every lady on Mother Earth either as my Mother, sister or daughter. I deeply prayed to God day and night and ultimately even night sweet dreams also ended. I practiced physical and mental control on sexual activities for a continuous period of twelve years and lo shortly after that I had a Darshan of God. Subsequently I realized God in its entirety.

Mahavira, Gautama Buddha all practiced celibacy for a continuous period of twelve years before they realized their self. To practice absolute celibacy as narrated above is perhaps a difficult task but there is nothing on Mother Earth which cannot be achieved.

I have narrated above most important features over which a Human Being has to have absolute control before he can Realize self. Because of the inborn nature of the Mother to take care of its offspring, it is even more difficult for woman folk to achieve Self Realization. In the history of India only two women achieved this status - one was Gargi and other Maitreyi. Gargi was a highly accomplished intellectual women and Maitreyi was the wise wife of sage Yagnavalkya - a knower of Brahman, the Almighty Creator of the cosmos. Sage Yagnavalkya is the author of Brihadarankya Upanishad - a highly intellectual sacred text.


How did you come to believe or what was that phenomenon that made you believe you have realized God?

Vedas are the words of God which were invoked by highly intellectual Saints. As Vedas are very voluminous ... it is very difficult to go through them and learn of the Spiritual secrets even by the most learned Scholars, what to say of the common man.

Lord Krishna came and gave us the Essence of Vedas in form of Bhagavad Gita. Before Self Realization I had never read Gita ... what to say of understanding its content.

The moment I realized God I reached the source of all Cosmic wisdom. Without having ever read Bhagavad Gita, all the Upanishads ... the Essence of all became clear to me like ABC. Unbelievable ... isn't it!! I can give a continuous nonstop discourse on Bhagavad Gita or the Upanishads continuing from hours to days. I feel that Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads were written by me in some earlier Life.

Imagine the feeling of Ananda I have within me having reached the Cosmic end of my Life.


You have written that you had Darshan of God -My Query is that what kind of a vision of God did you have, a mental or a physical vision. was it some light or looked like some person or some conventional God we worship or is it unexplainable.

You must bear one thing in Mind ... whoever created the whole Cosmos including many Universes, numerous Galaxies, star clusters and unlimited planets ... can never be considered to have a physical form. God is but a cluster of pure energy so big in magnitude that human mind is not capable of assessing it as it has its limitations! All visions are mental in nature ... and whatever we see in our visions is through the inner eye and by this inner eye we mean that the vision occurs to atman the soul within and not to the physical manifested Human Being. It was bluish clouds circling and pointing to a source within the gaseous tunnel. Everything was so calm and quiet that the bliss experienced at that moment cannot be explained in words. It is beyond any explanation!! Likewise, the definition of God is also beyond any explanation all comprehension of a normal Human Being.

Talking of conventional God's like Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva ... there has never been any person like that. It is only symbolic worshiping. Every normal Human Being needs a medium to worship God. We may take that Symbol to be a tree, a stone or a statute. The symbols are immaterial. What is of value is our Faith in God, the Creator.

As we need the water to boil to 100 degrees centigrade before we can make a steam engine start ... Similarly, no Human Being can really start on the part of Self Realization until he has hundred percent Faith in the existence of God and his system.



As a realized being, how do you see "ignorant beings" that need to be liberated or are presently bound? Aren't they unreal? Just as the "I" in you is unreal?

As a professor would look at a child in class I! They are in their initial stages of development. In the Cosmic system the total journey by an atman the soul within is to be covered in 8.4 Million manifestations. One may complete the journey early others may take the complete time. None is wrong. The I within me as a Self Realized soul is very much real. It is now fully purified. I shall have no further Life after I leave the present mortal frame. The I within a common man is also real but he has still to burn out his Karma and purify himself. Until purity it is obtained, the I of the Ego tends to dominate the real I of atman the soul within.


Do you have any information about the type of Life a realized being's body lives while waiting extinction of Karma? Do you believe that a realized being's body disappears rather than die a natural death? Just as ignorance disappears in to thin air.

Have you ever witnessed a lump of silver which has recently been purified from the silver ore! It is absolutely shining. Leave it in the open for a period of few hours and lo! It has a coating of blackish material. Pure silver has reacted with the air and oxidation has taken place. Even after Realization one can keep himself involved in social activities ... does not mean that one is engaging himself in a Karma which can bind him. Once purified ... it is purified for forever!! It is the end of the Cosmic journey. A Self Realized soul knows how to clear itself of the oxidation. A single rub and the silver lump shines as ever before. In the Spiritual realm fantasies and miracles have no place. A Self Realized soul leaves the body like anybody would. You pray and God Forgives you. Do you witness your sins being washed away. Like the sweet fragrance of a flower you neither see ignorance nor atman the soul within.



I visited your web page and would want to know your opinion on following matters: Is there Life after death and are there rebirths.? Could I in any way find out what I was in my previous birth? Do you think that Human Life is a predetermined course for an individual set up by a divine super force and the individual has no control over the day to day happenings in his Life? I look forward to your opinion on above matters.

As long as the Ego of a Human Being dominates him, we talk of Life after death, rebirths etc. Every Human Being is but a garb for atman the soul within. atman the soul within never dies. When the age of the body is over it just takes a new body. It cannot be called rebirth for nothing has died. Only atman the soul within has left the body. Death occurs only for the body and the body once it dies has no rebirth.

If you ever come to know that he a closest friend in this Life was the cause of your death in the earlier Life, what would be the result! Either you would attempt to take revenge or kill him. For this reason God forbid all and one to view into the past lives.

When an Atman starts on its Cosmic journey it initially manifests the body of an amoeba. As it evolves further it takes the garb of a plant, then animal and finally a Human Being. The total journey period is fixed but can be cut short by people who have hundred percent Faith in God. Only a Self Realized Human Being can govern his destiny in totality. All successful people in the World have Destiny in their control as far as their present physical Life is concerned but a god realized soul has Cosmic Life under his control.



Can I get Self Realization, Moksha through Sahaja Yoga

one can never attain the state of Self Realization through Sahaja Yoga alone. As we cannot impregnate a flower with natural smell, Similarly with the help of Sahaja Yoga one can awaken his Kundalini but cannot reach the inner most depths of his inner self.

Attainment of Self Realization is not to be spoken of in such simpler words. It is not a commercial art or a principle of science which can be learnt by paying a price.

It is the very Essence of every Life present in the Cosmos. Self realization is not a journey to be taken in the physical realm. It is the journey which is already being undertaken by your atman the soul within. Our body, the physical part of Life of atman the soul within is already on the move.

If we decide to undertake this journey in the present body, we have to bear one thing in mind - all including our parents, wife, children and also all our friends and relatives would be left behind forever. The process is irreversible. Once we start proceeding on this journey ... there is no looking back. One would become a living Mahavira, Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed at the end of the journey! The whole World would appear to be the same before us. Unable to differentiate between different people all become sons and daughters of God for you.

It is not possible for every Human Being to attain Self Realization in the present life but to proceed on this journey within this Life would make our present physical Life much more richer in values. The sense of well being and inner peace attained would prove extremely beneficial to live the day-to-day Life.


Is there step by step procedure towards Moksha or it just happens according to our past Karmas. How can we go fast . I had read book which says: Just say to soul within, whatever you are doing to " God you are doing it "

Bhagavad Gita, the most sacred religious document existing on Mother Earth is available for Rs 10 (US $ 0.25) but how many can understand the meaning of it! In the field of the Spirituality ... the system is so complex that one has to work out his own path. Lot of guidance is available in form of sacred texts and Spiritual Gurus. Our Buddhi (intellect) helps us in choosing the right path by discriminating between what is right and wrong. Ultimate judgment rests with us as our atman the soul within always prompt us whenever we tend to go wrong.

If you want to go faster on this path, one has to burn out his Karmas at the earliest. There are so many mantras to be repeated!! To proceed on the path of Self Realization you need to read the literature written by either a Self Realized soul him self or written about him by his followers. One who has not yet gained Self realization ... is he competent to write or teach on the subject ... you have to judge for your Self!!!

One must indulge in all literature concerning Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Ramana Mahirshi if one is to Realize God in the present life. Both of these true sons of God realized self in their Lifetimes. The link to my personal book store on the net is - Full Circle New Age Book Shop (links to books on Hinduism, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, and Ramana Mahirshi etc. are listed on this site.)



If Religion is the answer, then why do we have so many of them? Religions like Islam which claim that it is the only true way to God. If that is true then whets the big deal with Hinduism, Buddhism etc? If Hinduism is true then where does Islam stand? They both can't be right since Hinduism promotes vegetarianism and Islam promotes non-vegetarianism. According to Islam, the followers of other Religions are termed as 'kafirs' who will most probably go to hell. Therefore, 60% of the World's population is most likely to end up in hell!

As many minds ... as many chain of thoughts. As per Mahavira every Human Being has the capability to become a Mahavira, Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed.

What is claimed by Islam may not always be true as what is being preached by the Maulanas of today may not be the correct interpretation of what is contained in the Quran. From where does the Spiritual Gurus of every Religion get there means of livelihood from! From the common man and normally the in charge of the kingdom - be it a King or an elected parliamentary group. Devoid of real wisdom and to maintain a hold on the common masses, the Maulanas interpreted the meaning of the verses in their own interest. The facts never been disclosed to the public at large ... the meaning of Quran came to be interpreted by the public in a wrong manner.

If you go through the glossary on my homepage and read the story of Dharma then the conflict going on in your mind in respect of various Religions would come to an end. Every Religion has its own place in the World. Do you ever find the branches of a tree fighting with the leaves or the fruits. All live in harmony. God desired it so. Similarly, all Human Beings on Mother Earth are supposed to live in harmony. But, the Spiritual Gurus of today owing to their selfish interests misguide the Humanity.

A Glossary of words in Hinduism: The inner meanings explained (A - B - C - D - E) Aham (ego), Atman soul, Anadi Kaal (a state of timelessness), Brahman ... The Creator of the Universe, Dharma (Righteousness) (A must read for all young and old) and Dukkha (Sadness): in-depth explanation by Vijay Kumar...The Man who Realized God in 1993!

The concept of consuming vegetarian or non-vegetarian food is purely a social matter. With passage of time as science develops the eating habits will go on changing. In the earlier years the concept of vegetarianism did not exist. It gained prominence when Human Beings started realizing that even animals have atman the soul within in them. Whether one goes to Heaven or hell or manifests a body again on Mother Earth is really dependent upon his Karma. Religion or Spiritual Gurus have nothing to do with it.

The concept of Heaven and hell has been explained by me in the following article - Heaven, Hell and Mother Earth ... their interwoven connection! Every 'Atman' (soul) manifests initially on a Life supporting planet and then goes on Spiritually elevating itself to higher and higher planes. You go to 'Swarga' (Heaven) owing to your Punya Karma and 'Naraka' (Hell) owing to your Paap Karma. God never differentiates ... For him all are equal!



What is the point in having so many Religions....isn't it just confusing us more. which one is right? how do you substantiate your argument? Wouldn't it be easier if we all believed in one universal spirit and consider Humanity as our Religion? Don't you think the World would have been a much better place if all these different Religions were not here? Is it that God brought all these Religions to earth, deliberately trying to divide the Human race? Its very similar to the caste system and as crappy as the caste system ... we are all so same and yet so different. why? Doesn't goodness depend on 'Karma'? Isn't 'what you pray' more important than 'how you pray'? I still have so many questions but I'm not quite sure if someone is actually going to pay attention. Do reply to let me know.

When we talk of God, the Creator ... our belief does not come into play. It is only hundred percent Faith in the system of God that shall win us the day. Do you intend to say that all Human Beings should not be required to attend various classes. The system should have been so that there was only one class and the World would have been a better place if it was so. You are wrong. To climb up the ladder of success we have to proceed step-by-step. Every Religion has its own methodology. Every individual has 8.4 Million lives to manifest before the cycle of Cosmic Life gets completed.

You reap what you sow. To earn the Grace of God you need not go to a temple. You can pray whenever you are, in what ever condition you are. From your writings it is clear that your Faith in God is not hundred percent. Unless you heat the water to hundred degrees centigrade steam would not form. The engine of your Life would remain stationary even at 99 degrees centigrade.



I suppose it is not easy to live with such realizations in this imperfect World? How do You solve the problem of this gap between the World and Yourself?

The fear of the worst that can happen to us if we take the path of Truthfulness keeps most of us at bay. Yet Humanity has witnessed the advent of people like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed. There are many more in the chain. Many good people are yet to come. Did all these people surface when the going was right. No, these people came when the values in the society was at its lowest ebb. The social fabric which governs the society had broken down and a super Human feit was necessary to bring back the society to its normal values. Only during such times one amongst us takes the super Human task of uplifting the society.

When I undertook this journey of Self realization, I inherently knew at the age of 11 years that a day would come when even my own would get lost one-day. For the sake of Humanity I was agreeable for the same. I was prepared to face every rigor which came on my way. Once you start on this path there is no going back.

To remain in the family and yet attain Self realization is the highest form of God realization. There are many instances of people having left their families for the deep Jungles (deep uninhabited forests) in search of Self Realization ... ultimately having realized God. To preach the Cosmic wisdom and also continue with your daily chores of earning your livelihood is very difficult but if one has hundred percent Faith in God then where is no cause of worry. Are we not mere instruments in the hand of God. Does he not take care of those who love him and his children (the total mankind) dearly.



What is the difference between the manifest and the un-manifest? At what point exactly the unmanifest become manifested?

Whenever an atman the soul within takes a body, in other words every Jiva is manifest and that we cannot see but which forms the basis of the manifest is the un-manifest atman the soul within in its pristine glory. The un-manifest becomes manifested the moment it gets a body. In the case of a Human Being the moment the un-manifest finds matching parents, it takes root in the body and is born as a child.


What is the difference between Purusha and Brahman? If there is two words the must been two meaning??

Whenever we assume God to have a form, it is addressed to as a Purusha. The Nirvikalpa form of the Omnipotent Creator of the cosmos is known as Brahman. The same person can be attributed not only two but many meanings. A Christian may call it "water", a Muslim " paani" and a Hindu "Jal". This is best explained by the Doctrine of Anekantvad explained in one of my articles.

Self is atman the soul within. A grain of wheat is self, Atman and a mound of wheat, the Omnipotent Creator. Every Atman an element of a larger and whole puzzle!! As a grain of wheat is not different in quality from the mound so is Atman never different from the attributes of God, the Omnipotent Creator.


You have the three body physical astral and causal. To what level of samadhi corresponds each of the body? of what substance is made the astral body? of what substance is made the causal body? If you take all the charkras and the nadis together, does all that constitute structure of the causal body or the structure of the astral body? Are the charkras a kind of interface between annamaya kosha and pranamaya kosha or between manomaya kosha and and pranamaya kosha? What are the organs of perception in the astral World? What are the organs of perception in the causal World?

Once you have seen God in its entirety there is no need to know the details of a burning lamp or a candle. I never had any reason to study the difference between astral and causal body. Similarly is the case of charkras and nadis. I only wanted to have a darshan of God in the present life. Had I swayed from my path and involved myself in technicalities, I may never have realized God in this Life!!!


The ego ( Ahamkara ) is part of the relative. So it is an object. of what is made that object?

Whenever an atman the soul within takes a body, it develops an identity. This body develops an ego so as to carry out the mundane affairs as a body. Had there been no ego (Ahamkara), why would the body carry out any function at all. It would all the time remain idle and leave everything to the Creator. As the Omnipotent Creator of the cosmos is only a dhrasta (and not a doer), it was necessary for all Atmans to carry out their work through the manifest body.


Do the gunas could be perceived? If yes what it looks like?

The gunas are essentially the attributes existing within Atman and are carried forward from one Life to another. As we cannot see the smell of a flower, likewise we cannot see the attributes.


Do you have a list of people who are awake like you?

How many Buddha's and Mahavira's you want at a time. Buddha realized God at the age of 80 years. Mahavira realized at the age of 42. In the last one hundred and fifty years only two persons have realized God. One is Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, other was Ramana Maharshi.

If there were 50 Jesus Christ's at a time then how would a lay man know whom to worship and seek blessings? In the last 3500 years there never has been a time when more than two contemporaries appeared. Buddha came when Mahavira was at the end of his Life. Ramana Maharshi came when Ramakrishna Paramahamsa had already completed half his Life.


What is the fastest way to get God Darshan?

No way , no way!! Mahavira Realized God at the age of 42 years. Gautama Buddha at the age of 82 ... Why are you in a hurry? The journey of Self Realization itself is so meaningful and full of bliss, you should enjoy every moment of your Life ... the moment you firmly decide, you really want to proceed.

The pitfalls are many ... the biggest being, a normal Human Being fears losing his family. The higher and higher we proceed on this journey we lose the physical touch which is so very important as a physical manifested being. For us, all start becoming equal. We fail to differentiate between our son and all other sons present on Mother Earth. Similar is the case with all daughters. Imagine the position my wife has been put in. when I tell her I no more recognize her as my wife but as a sister like all other sisters existing on Mother Earth. I can not even pity her for she is not at fault. My two daughters have suffered greatly. They are paying for their Father's deed. Not at fault on their own ... they somehow keep themselves contended.

Bhagavad Gita says - keep on doing your Karma ... do not think of the fruits!!! This mantra is the biggest solace to mankind and direct answer to your question.



You said after realization we escape from the cycle of births and deaths. After we escape, what do we do...where do we go...does everything end for us? I mean, do we no longer exist...do we loose our self?

After Self Realization, our real self, our atman the soul within re-gains its pure status. Every atman the soul within has to pass through a total of 8.4 Million manifestations before it gets purified i.e. it comes back to its original form. One K.G of Iron gets separated from hundred K.G of iron ore. 99 K.G of impurities which surrounded one K.G of Iron have lost their meaning now. One K.G of pure Iron need not again get surrounded by impurities/manifest a body.

The purified Atman does not need a body further. cycle of birth and death now ceases to exist. A body was required by atman the soul within to purify itself and once purified, no further manifestation is required.

After Self realization, everything ends for the present body. After Self realization Ramakrishna Paramahamsa left his body. His Atman would never again manifest a body. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa as a Human Being ceases to exist but his Atman lives forever and graces us as and when we invoke the mighty power known as Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. After death of body Ramakrishna Paramahamsa did not lose his self but regained to his original self, his atman the soul within which is ever immortal and indestructible.

For a God Realized soul everything ends for the body as one can only attain Moksha. After salvation, one can only remembered as Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Ramana Maharshi, Prophet Mohammed, Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha and Mahavira.



I shall tell you how excited i am to see you home page with excellent coverage on Hinduism. What are your views on arya samaj and idol worshiping?? Also how confident are you about your predictions on World war 3??

Arya samaj has contributed a great deal during the initial phases of development of Hinduism. At the time of Adi Shankaracharya when Buddhism was at its peak, it was only through the efforts of Adi Shankaracharya that Vedic literature got a strong foothold without which India would have definitely lost its present shape and culture. Mahirshi Dayananda devoted his entire Life for the cause of Hinduism.

But, In present times rituals are meaning less. They were essential during the earlier times but as of now more emphasis is required to be laid on the study of Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads. As science has progressed at a very fast pace, rituals like idol worship would only delay the Cosmic journey undertaken by atman the soul within. To have a darshan of God in the present life ... we ought to have a thorough knowledge of what is contained in Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads.

The Bhakti Yoga path is simpler but takes longer. The Jnana Yoga path is extremely difficult yet shorter. One always worships an idol considering it to be a symbol of God. As God is not visible to the common man he requires a means for achieving the ultimate aim. For Yogis who have risen above the ordinary can concentrate on the Nirvikalpa form of God. One proceeds on his earthly journey as per his capacity and will. One cannot expect a student of class two to read books of class 10.



I read your article on how you realize God. It is true that there is one God. I want to ask a question? Has God Forgiven us from our wrongdoings SINS).Do you think God Forgives you. How does he Forgive mankind when he created mankind to be like him, during creation of the World; but we have turned away, to do what pleases us. If you know God, can you have a personal relationship with him. Can you personally lift up your needs and grievances to him? How can we have a personal relationship with God. Can God heal your sickness and disease.

The Cosmos started with the big Bang when all Atmans (The Soul Within) get scattered all over the Cosmos. Thereafter every Atman is on its own self. The whole Cosmos runs on a predefined set of principles. Every atman the soul within is supposed to complete the Cosmic journey within a total of 8.4 Million manifestations (a period equal into 96.4 Million years). Like the seed of a plant cannot grow on its own and has to be provided a proper atmosphere like soil, water and air etc. for it to grow, Similarly every atman the soul within has to manifest a body to purify itself of the impurities it has gained on the Cosmic journey. This body be it the body of a plant, animal or a Human Being has to earn Punya to rise high on the Spiritual scale by performing acts conducive to Spiritual growth. God the Creator had has always been a dhrasta (onlooker) and never indulges in any act. If a sin is committed we have to pray to God for Forgiveness. If our prayer is right it shall be accepted and we would be fully absolved of the sin. The biggest problem of the mankind is that we do not know what prayers are to be offered for which sins! It is based stage when sacred Scriptures come to over help.

Every atman the soul within has taken the body and not vice versa. To think man is doing what he wants is wrong for everyone is proceeding on the Cosmic path, some will complete the journey before 8.4 Million manifestations take pace and others may take full 8.4 Million manifestations before they attain moksha. atman the soul within is not the least bonded to the body it has taken. If the Ego factor of a Human Being is dominating then his Cosmic journey would prolong.

One cannot have a personal relationship with God. It is only through the medium of prayers and Meditation that one reaches God. One "Realizes" God in the end of his journey. Every individual has to perform his own Karma. God has nothing to do with it. During the journey of Life one can always take guidance and help from the Spiritual masters and the Scriptural texts available on Mother Earth.


I realize we are just Spiritual beings in earthly bodies. As the body returns to dust the Spirit returns to God who gives it. Will your Spirit turn to a dog when you die or is it going to be a ghost. As Spiritual beings I believe ,a spirit of a man remains a spirit of a man. It can not become a dog, cow, rat, pig etc.

After the death of a Human Being there are only three options for Atman within to exercise - if the chromosomes of the person at the time of his death match that of any parents world-wide, and if such parents decide to have a child then the same Atman will immediately take its place in the womb of the would be Mother. If this is not the case and atman the soul within has virtues in its collection then it will have to rest in Swarga (heaven) until the time a suitable would be Mother is found otherwise atman the soul within would have to rest in Naraka (hell). Heaven and hell are intermediate stations where Atman finds solace in the intervening period. The spirit within takes the body of a dog or a Human Being depends upon the residual Karma at the time of the death. Having being born as a Human Being one can go back to the Life of a dog provided the sins committed are so heinous in nature that one cannot get the Life of a Human Being. During the resting period if you do not get a body for a longtime then atman the soul within gets agitated and then it is known as either a good or a bad ghost.



I was reading your glossary for Hinduism and found very meaningful. Just for my curiosity, I would like to know what is a story behind Devi Kali wearing mortal heads and Lord Shiva is lying down under her feet.

Whenever one comes across any devi with any of the God's lying at her feet, it is indicative of - God, the Omnipotent Creator is at the mercy of Mother Earth or any other Life supporting planet. The reason for this is that any atman the soul within on its Cosmic journey can not purify itself on its own and seeks a Life supporting planet where it can manifest a body. It As every Atman is a minuscule portion of God itself ... it is this saakaar form of atman the soul within which you see lying at the feet of Mother Earth.

Imagine a lump of Iron ore weighing hundred kilograms. Imagine it to consist of one kg of pure Iron. This one kg of pure Iron is atman the soul within mired in 99 kg of impurities. This one kg of pure Iron needs to purify itself but can it separate itself out of the 99 kg of impurities. No, it cannot! It needs the help of proper mining machinery through which it has to pass to complete the cleansing process. This mining machinery is the body of a Human Being which Atman within has to manifest to complete its Cosmic journey. The whole mining station is Mother Earth comprising of different features and machines.

Devi Kali wearing mortal heads implies that the Life and Death of a being is in the hands of Mother Earth. None can escape it. Alternatively, it means every Atman has to take a body on Mother Earth itself. It has no other place to go. This is proved from the example of various other planets rotating around Sun and which have no sign of any Life including the moon. Shiva who is considered to be the maintainer of the Cosmic balance cannot snatch away the Life of one without the permission of Mother Earth as every Life has its own cycle of Karmas which is governed by Mother Earth. It is only when the Karmas dictate the death of a being that Shiva takes over and the Life is snatched away by Yama.



I read your poem, it is simply divine. The play of words is excellent. Keep it up, and add more to the collection, please.

Every single word of mine on the net is a direct dictation from God. I never write anything on my own. It is beyond my intellect and capability. The moment I Realized God, dictation's from God have become a regular feature. Sometimes the dictations continue for hours and at times months pass. Living in Grihastha Ashram and continuing with the Spiritual endeavor is at times difficult but Life is so. Being my last Life I have to impart the Cosmic wisdom before I leave this mortal frame.

With the blessings of God you would find addition of new essays as and when it happens! The poem realization was dictated to me by God few hours after I had a darshan of him. May God bless us all.



Read your experience with love and interest and please accept my Salutations. Kindly explain how a common man can conquer the desires and lead the Life of a house holder and at the same time work towards God Union. I am struggling to make a living (forget about basic house and stuff.)

Every Human Being has to lead two lives simultaneously. One the physical Life controlled by the Ego and the second, the spiritual life governed by I of the inner self, atman the soul within. We may desire or not but inherently we worship the Omnipotent Creator be it in the form a ritual or reading of Sacred texts. We seek the blessings of the Creator to keep us away from the unknown happenings which may retard our physical journey. The fear of the unknown takes us to the temples, churches and mosques.

What ever profession you have undertaken... you would want to be a great success in your field and simultaneously want to pursue the Spiritual quest!

The physical journey is best guided by the character of Rama and hence we must read Ramcharitmanas for any Human Being can never rise above what maryada purushottam Rama was. Leave apart the Spiritual inclination of Rama, he was the king of Ayodhya par excellence. None could beat him in his time.

You must devote your self exclusively to your Profession. Maintain total integrity, honesty, sincerity coupled with hard work. This shall give you satisfaction as a Human Being.

Apart from your profession ... your Spiritual quest would be satisfied if you read sacred literature along with biographies and autobiographies. Books on Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Ramana Mahirshi would give a great impetus to your quest. Don't fall into the ritual of going to a Temple. Seek the company of knowledgeable people who have either seen God or Realized God. Clarify your Spiritual doubts. Read only Bhagavad Gita at this stage. Bhagavad Gita available from Gita press, Gorakhpur would suffice your requirements. Do satsangs only with like minded people. Do not ever enter into Spiritual gossip as is the trend the days.

As you alleviate yourself even more profound questions would face you. For any Query of which you think you do not have the proper answer ... put up the same on this mailing list and I shall address to each and every Query of yours. As you proceed on this journey I shall release those gems of the Spiritual Doctrine which you shall never find in any book.



Many says that 4th and 5th May is the day of destruction due to the unfavorable position of the planets. Is it true? Pls comment and how will the year 2000 in general? Will Malaysia be effected in any way?

In 1993, the year I Realized God I could foresee World war 3 starting in October 1998 but it was not to be. Subsequently the events shifted to 1999 but now I foresee nothing before 2002.

I do not foresee anything in May 2000. One thing is for sure. The coming time is not for good. The present Karma of the mass World community has deteriorated beyond repair. We have to face the results of what we have sowed. None can escape its clutches.

Whenever I get an intuition, it is for the World community at large. If the Karma performed by your Countrymen is good then the future is also bright.



Did I catch it well? Are you: Vijay Kumar...The Man who Realized God in 1993! If yes please give your tricks because I have tried to attain this for the last 30 years. Thanks for the information

When I started on this journey at 11 years of age, I had not the slightest inkling that I would see God one day in the present life, leave apart the question of how many years from now! But one thing I was very sure of was that if God was to give a darshan to someone on Mother Earth it was to be me. Inherently I knew that purity of Mind was to be maintained at all costs. Even as a child I could see people cheating God when they were alone in the surroundings of their house or the office. When I used to challenge such people of their unTruthfulness they used to counter that no one had seen them making a theft. I inherently knew that these people were fooling their own self for God was everywhere and he takes care of all our actions be they good or bad.

One had to be hundred percent truthful if he ever was to realize self in the present life ... a very difficult task as in the day-to-day mundane affairs of Life sometimes even unknowingly one may be untruthful and unless one knows the right path of repenting how to absolve one self out of the situation. There had been a King Vikramaditya in India in the past who was famous for his Truthfulness. I followed his path of Tapasya (prayer) ... and one-day I knew I had become an absolutely truthful Human Being.

Still, there was no God to be seen anywhere. I subsequently Realized that apart from being truthful one had to practice celibacy to its extreme end. Not involving one self in sexual activities of any nature alone is not sufficient. The complete definition of celibacy meant not involving one self in sexual activities physically but even mentally. It was very difficult for me to find out what was the meaning of mental sexual activities. In spite of all my best efforts in controlling sexual desires I was getting nowhere. Sweet dreams is a common occurrence. I had to somehow over come it. I realized as everyone on Mother Earth were sons and daughters of God, I had to treat every lady on Mother Earth either as my Mother, sister or daughter. I deeply prayed to God day and night and ultimately even night sweet dreams also ended. I practiced physical and mental control on sexual activities for a continuous period of twelve years and lo shortly after that I had a darshan of God. Subsequently I realized God in its entirety.

Mahavira, Gautama Buddha all practiced celibacy for a continuous period of twelve years before they realized their self. To practice absolute celibacy as narrated above is perhaps a difficult task for one living in a western Country but there is nothing on Mother Earth which cannot be achieved.

I have narrated above most important features over which a Human Being has to have absolute control before he can Realize self. Because of the in born nature of the Mother to take care of its offspring, it is even more difficult for woman folk to achieve Self Realization. In the history of India only two women achieved this status - one was Gargi and other Maitreyi. Gargi was a highly accomplished intellectual women and Maitreyi was the wise wife of sage Yagnavalkya - a knower of Brahman, the Almighty Creator of the cosmos. Sage Yagnavalkya is the author of Brihadarankya Upanishad - a highly intellectual sacred text.

All of you are a lucky lot for you have Vijay Kumar to guide you whenever you get stuck up in your Spiritual endeavors. I had none.



I want to Understand the hidden truths of all Scriptures of all Religions of the World. Realize-self & attain Salvation within this Life. Please send me more details

How simple to ask ... extremely difficult to answer! A journey which is required to be completed in a span of about one Million lives ... to complete it in one Life span of about 70-80 years, one can imagine how difficult it would be. To free atman the soul within from the shackles of Maya (ignorance), to become the knower of all - all wisdom contained in the Cosmos on your tips ... One becomes a truly enlightened being.

I can help you proceed on the journey of Self realization at a faster pace but the journey itself is to be taken by you in serious earnestness. The journey will end the moment all queries within you cease to exist. For this the best solution is that you post as many questions as you desire in the proper mailing list. Answer to your queries would be promptly attended to.



If Aadishwar Bhagwan was the first Jain Tirthankar, then jain Religion must be there or may be established by "First Tirthankara: Aadishwar Bhagwan", but it is said that Lord Mahavira established Jain Religion. Please explain the chronology.

Bhagwan Aadinath, the first Tirthankar of the Jain's did not start Jainism as such because Jainism is not a Religion but a way of Life. The first Tirthankar set the initial standards as to how Human Beings were to conduct themselves in day to day Life. He was the first to preach the relationship between a Human Being and atman the soul within. He emphasized the fact that it was atman the soul within which was the true Essence of every being and the body of every being was only a garb for atman the soul within. He was the first to realize God in his age and hence was known as the first Tirthankar. He was not to have another body as his Atman within was going to be liberated forever.

During the period of Bhagwan Aadinath, Humanity was not developed nor was science. It was difficult to preach to a group of people leave apart a whole community or a town. There were no followers and hence no Religion.

In the intervening period from first to the 23rd Tirthankar, the same pattern of preaching followed. The Guru had Realized God but to make the common masses understand the absolute Truth was a difficult task as even written form of communication had not yet evolved. It was only after Bhagwan Mahavira had come and had established his religious supremacy ... he found the time conducive for mass preaching.

He propagated the concept of oneness with God, the Creator. According to him there was no separate God, the Creator and every individual being had the potential to become a Bhagwan, a realized soul. He advocated the Cosmos to be without a beginning and end. His preachings were followed by the masses and his followers came to be known as Jain's. The word Jain is derived from the word Jina, one who had won the self. All followers of Bhagwan Mahavira are expected to realize God at the earliest, only then shall they be a true Jain.

From the first to the 23rd Tirthankar, the masses were more busy in earning their livelihood and they had no time for any Religion whatsoever. Only when there basic necessities were fulfilled, they developed an inclination towards Dharma and Religion. The Religion which was in its infancy up to the 23rd Tirthankar had now taken its roots and fully blossomed during the time of Bhagwan Mahavira.


If Jain dharma is before Hinduism, why all the Jain tirthankaras were born in Kshatriya families?

Who said Jain dharma is before Hinduism? Lord Krishna came approximately a 1000 years before Bhagwan Mahavira. Bhagavad Gita the most sacred document existing on Mother Earth is the guiding star for all Humanity. If you read the story of Dharma in the following article, all would become crystal clear to you - A Glossary of words in Hinduism: The inner meanings explained (A - B - C - D - E) Aham (ego), Atman soul, Anadi Kaal (a state of timelessness), Brahman ... The Creator of the Universe, Dharma (Righteousness) (A must read for all young and old) and Dukkha (Sadness): in-depth explanation by Vijay Kumar...The Man who Realized God in 1993!

Tirthankars and all God Realized Souls are normally born in a Kshatriya family for the only reason that Kshatriyas are fearless people and they can face the truth in its entirety. The other classes of Brahmins, Vaishya and Shudra are dependent on the community for their survival and can also involve themselves in untruthful means for the sake of maintaining their livelihood and which is a great bar in achieving Self Realization for those who are not absolutely truthfully can never gain God realization. Having led a contended Life, they could afford venturing into the inner domains of their real Self, the I within.


When did actually Jain Religion was established and what was the main reason for deviation?

Jainism as a way of Life took a foothold during the period of Bhagwan Mahavira sometimes above 2550 years ago. Bhagavad Gita as narrated by Lord Krishna is the complete Essence of Life in its entirety. It believes in the Doctrine of a Karta, an Omnipotent Creator of the Universe. The whole Doctrine is so complex in nature that taking even few clues one could develop a separate chain of thought. Bhagwan Mahavira did not believe in the Doctrine of one Creator having created the entire cosmos and hence a separate chain of thought was developed which evolved around the basic theme of Ahimsa. This does not mean that Lord Krishna was against Ahimsa but it is possible that during his time the topic of Ahimsa was not the dominating theme. It is more likely that due to non availability of greener pastures, practice of non vegetarian diet was a common practice and with passage of thousand years inclination towards vegetarianism increased. Further, Human Beings realized that animals also had an atman the soul within and one would incur Paap Karma in killing them.

Questions confronting all mankind:


From the absolute reality stand point, there is no beginning or no end, then how was the universe created and how did the Humans were born and how did they accumulate Karmas and desires?

True, Cosmos is without a beginning or end. Everything in the Cosmos acts in the cycle manner. At one stage of time the whole Cosmos destructs itself and again is reborn with a big Bang. This process goes on and on and the time period between the beginning and the end may range between billions of years. In the initial stages the Cosmos is not conducive to growth of any Jiva (a living being) but slowly signs of first Life starts to occur in form of an Amoeba (single cell formation). This ultimately leads to development of plant Life, then animal Life and subsequently the form of a Human Being takes shape ... the ultimate in the theory of Evolution. This Human Being paves the way for atman the soul within to get liberated and retain its original form as was at the time of the occurrence of Big Bang.

atman the soul within is hundred percent pure at the time of Big Bang. As the big Bang occurs all Atmans get scattered all over the Cosmos and in this process they accumulate impurities. atman the soul within cannot purify itself on its own but has to manifest a body and it takes as per Bhagavad Gita a total of 8.4 Million manifestations before it gets liberated to its original form. This Cosmic journey by atman the soul within takes approximately 96.4 Million years. The impurities described above when related to a Human Being are termed as Karmas and desires. Unless a Jiva performs due Karmas there is no reprieve. One is always bound by the Cosmic laws but the biggest reprieve for mankind is the journey can be cut short in any Life depending upon the will power of a Human Being and his capacity to sustain the hardships one has to past through as has been the case with the undersigned.
