spiritual is practicing spirituality to the core. Spirituality does not demand
any rituals whatsoever.
seeker of spirituality must follow the dictates of Bhagavad Gita...
the most sacred scripture available on Mother Earth (the doctrine
put forward by Lord Krishna in Mahabharata). This one document...
the sacred Bhagavad Gita is sufficient for one to gain enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (aka moksha in Hinduism)
in this very life.
The knower of
Bhagavad Gita... becomes the knower of all! Practicing rituals was
a practice of the past. In the Vedic times... when spirituality
was still in its infancy... the appeasement of gods was primarily
done by sacrificing animals in the temples. In the present scientific
age... such rituals and sacrifices are not least necessary.
is walking the jnana yoga path. In the last about 150 years... sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... both gained self realization and reached the
end of their cosmic journey. Following the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
and Maharishi Ramana one can definitely reach the highest pedestal of spiritual
scriptures are not to be read literally... Bhagavad Gita is required to be understood
as it was meant to be. Performing karma... the Nishakama karma way and following
the path of jnana yoga one shall ultimately reach the 8.4 millionth manifestation.
demands highest level of truthfulness in every deed. It is only then one takes
absolute control of the five senses and the mind. Practicing absolute celibacy
for a period of 12 years and yoga, Shavasana yoga way... one finally reaches the
stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi.
can I do as sort of a ritual to be spiritual and connect with God?
to the temples, churches or mosques is not the least necessary on the spiritual
path. God Almighty is everywhere. It is also present in every living being in
minuscule form as ones soul atman within the heart. Whenever we go wrong... our
soul atman within the heart prompts us on the right path... what more would a
lusting human form desire!

is not what you talk about. Spirituality has a deep ingrained meaning! Spirituality
is knowing real self of us... the wisdom of our soul atman within! Spirituality
is gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) at the earliest. Spirituality is becoming
a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed early in life.
in matters spiritual... where to find it! At 11 years of age I finalized my goal
of life... I had to search God in this life come whatever may. At 13 years of
age my desire had converted into absolute conviction.
wanted a spiritual guide... I got none. I ventured all over my country but found
none to guide me. Hordes of religious teachers but spiritual master none. I tried
my best but failed. In exasperation I requested God Almighty to send an angel
to guide me... I kept waiting but it was nowhere in sight!
be spiritual... is following the path of God. Religion is a
ritual... a following! Spirituality
provides Inner peace... religion outer happiness! Spirituality
is understanding the truth of our soul atman within our heart.
Religion is living peacefully amongst the community.
is reading the Bhagavad Gita and assimilating the pearls of wisdom therein. Religion
is going to the temples, churches or mosque and praying to God. Whether you get
anything in return is not the question. It is simply abiding by the dictates of
had one of the best spiritual experiences... the personal experience of coming
face to face with God Almighty on one-to-one basis. It was an experience that
can never be explained in words.
I was 11 years of age I had a very strong conviction of experiencing God in this
life. Another two years to go... my conviction had turned into a burning goal
of life. Come whatever may... I shall face God Almighty in this very life.
life is best lived having absolute faith in the system of God. I have observed
many people world over doing their part... the daily prayers, religiously going
to the places of worship like churches, temples and mosques but to what avail!
Having hundred percent faith in God Almighty... The basic ingredient on the path
to spirituality was missing in most!
