Gaining Salvation


For getting salvation (aka moksha in Hinduism) one needs to travel the path of spirituality (not religion). Salvation announces the end of journey of life for the soul atman within every human being. No further body to manifest... the soul atman liberates forever and goes to the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no return!

There are some prerequisites for traveling the spiritual path.

1. We need to practice absolute truthfulness in our day-to-day affairs of life.

2. We need to believe in the existence of God and his creation. In absence of absolute faith in Almighty God... salvation just cannot be achieved.

3. Every human being is primarily a karma yogi... one who performs karma as one proceeds in the journey of life. This karma requires to be absolutely negated... the cessation of karma in its entirety is a definite must before one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi. Until a residual balance of karma remains... the soul atman within shall continue manifesting body after another.

And for this one requires to perform karma... the Nishakama karma way! And what is Nishakama karma? Carrying out karma in a manner that one is not attached to the fruits of karma is Nishakama karma. We all know that our soul atman within has manifested the body. Whatever be the karma performed by the body... the fruits are always for the soul atman within. The fruits of karma were never meant for the body.

King Janaka... the father of Sita in Ramayana was a karma yogi par excellence! He gained enlightenment and finally salvation in his lifetime.

4. One needs to practice absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years. Practicing absolute celibacy does not mean abstinence from sex. It is always voluntary.

5. Following the path of Neti (not this, not this) as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana is the sure shot method for reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi. Neti is best followed in the Shavasana pose of yoga (the death pose).

6. Gaining control of the five senses and the mind in totality. This is really a difficult task but not impossible. For traveling the uncharted path of spirituality... gaining control of the five senses and the mind in a short span of one life is extremely difficult.

This fact can be fathomed from the evidence available. In the last about 150 years only two persons gained enlightenment and finally salvation (amongst a community of 6000 million people)... they were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana.

And most crucial of all... a definite goal in life to become one with God is an essential must. Most human beings traveling the spiritual path do not finalize a goal of this life. We do not know what we shall be in the next manifestation!

Slowly the spiritual seeker reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and gains one-to-one dialogue with God on a permanent basis. This is the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana). Thereafter one gains salvation (moksha)... liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever.
