is pronounced enlightenment. It is never pronounced spiritual enlightenment
for the reason that traveling the path of spirituality one gains
enlightenment... never otherwise! No religious person ever gains
enlightenment. One needs travel the spiritual path to gain enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
The moment one
reaches the level of Jesus Christ... one knows that enlightenment
has been achieved. Enlightenment (aka kaivalya jnana in Hinduism)
is reaching the cosmic end of life... one reaches the 8.4 millionth
manifestation! No further body to manifest... our soul atman within
liberates forever from the cycle of birth and death.
announces that the soul atman within would not have to manifest
another body. Having gained enlightenment... the liberated soul
atman goes to the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha
in Hinduism). A point of no return... kingdom of God is accessible
only by liberated souls' atmans. No human being in bodily form can
ever go to the kingdom of God or kingdom of heaven.
enlightenment means becoming a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet
Mohammed in our lifetime. All these man gods gained enlightenment and salvation
in their lifetime. This is the goal for every human being... the ultimate goal
for the soul atman within.
is not something that is possessed by anybody by birth. Right from the first manifestation
by our soul atman within (the form of an amoeba) and to the last manifestation
as a human being... our soul atman within is on its cosmic journey. The moment
the dross within the soul atman removes completely... it regains its original
pristine pure form! This is the stage of enlightenment for a human being.
must always remember that it is our soul atman within the body that has manifested
the body and never otherwise. The soul purpose of the various manifestations being
liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever! The sooner a human being
gains enlightenment... all is over for the soul atman within... it liberates forever!
