is simply no connection between pursuit of knowledge and religious beliefs one
follows! Pursuit of knowledge becomes necessary to earn a living! To spend the
sojourn of 70 to 80 years on Mother Earth happily... it becomes imperative for
human beings to gain knowledge... develop a career in the chosen goal of life!
of knowledge... the status of a human being remains that of a laborer... a daily
wager! On the spiritual path... one needs diving deep into the bottomless pit
of wisdom to unearth pearls of wisdom essential for spiritual upliftment! It is
wisdom (aka jnana in Hinduism) and wisdom alone that is necessary on the spiritual
and the religious path.
beliefs of one stem from the beginning of life on Mother Earth. The moment we
get born... we follow religious beliefs followed by the family... the parents!
Religious beliefs in the initial stages of life are hereditarily passed to the
child! One follows the religious beliefs sanctimoniously until one grows up.
every stage of life one can switchover from one religious belief to another. Not
necessarily one compulsively follows the family tradition. Religious beliefs are
purely a matter of personal choice. None should force another to follow certain
religious beliefs. One may take birth in Jainism religion and later on switchover
to Buddhism! It is permissible and practically possible!
was born in a Jain family. I still value Jaina religious beliefs. I have extreme
faith in all the religious beliefs of the world. As much as I believe in Jainism
scriptures, I also value Buddhists teachings. The sacred Quran... the Bible is
as dear to me as the sacred Bhagavad Gita! My goal of life was reaching God Almighty
in this very life... there was no reason to shun any religious beliefs whatsoever!
religious beliefs... my being born in a Jain family was never an impediment to
my learning the inner values of Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind
by Lord Krishna in Mahabharata! I value Bhagavad Gita as the supreme of all Wisdom
existing on Mother Earth. There is nothing beyond Bhagavad Gita that is worth
knowing. The knower of Bhagavad Gita becomes the knower of all.
moment I realized God in 1993... The essence of Bhagavad Gita became like ABC
to me. Everything that was contained in Bhagavad Gita, the sacred Quran, Bible
and all other religious scriptures became like ABC to me. I had reached the source
of all Wisdom existing on Mother Earth. Gaining self realization was reaching
the end of the cosmic journey!
