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
are some prerequisites for traveling the spiritual path.
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.
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.
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
Janaka... the father of Sita in Ramayana was a karma yogi par excellence! He gained
enlightenment and finally salvation in his lifetime.
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.
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).
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
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
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!
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.
