is the Meaning of Life Philosophy meaning of life
What is the
meaning of Life? The Meaning of Life... This one question "meaning
of Life" is the most asked question on the Internet. Why?
Being wants to know and understand the Philosophy behind the meaning
of Life! Why are we here... what is the purpose of our living on
Mother Earth... what is the real meaning of Life? The queries are
numerous... there has got to be a justification for our living.
What is the basis of existence of Life on planet Earth?
Before we indulge
into knowing "the meaning of Life" we need to understand Life itself.
How do we differentiate between a mortal (living being) and an immobile
material (having no Life within)? For this we need to start from
the beginning of the cosmos itself... The time of the
the time of the big bang when God Almighty which is but the size of half a thumb
explodes itself... all atmans (souls) get scattered all over the cosmos and in
doing this they lose their pristine purity and as a ball coated with honey gathers
dust while rolling... these atmans (souls) also get impregnated with impurities.
This is the fundamental cause of Life... if these atmans (souls) had remained
pure all the time... the need for Life in whole of the cosmos would not have arisen.
atmans (souls) in their cosmic journey now need a body so that they can purify
themselves and come back to original pristine pure form. These atmans (souls)
do not have the power to purify themselves without the aid of any external body.
They need a body to work out its Karma
and in the process the dross within the Atman
soul shall get removed.
me explain this further but before that I need to explain the definition
At the time of pralaya as we call it in Hinduism
(the time of complete dissolution
of cosmos)... the total cosmos which consists of many universes dissolves
back into its original pristine pure form... this is the form we call God Almighty!
The size of the whole cosmos at this moment of time is half the size of a thumb,
which is nothing else, but the collection of all purified atmans (souls) in the
themselves why do the atmans (souls) need a body? This feature can be explained
further by the example of mining.
If I need to extract one KG of pure gold (say an individual purified Atman in
its pristine pure form) from a lump of hundred KG of gold ore then I need to pass
the lump of hundred KG of gold ore through the requisite mining process. It is
absolutely clear that this one KG of pure gold can not on its own separate itself
out from the hundred KG of gold ore without the help of an external medium...
it needs requisite machinery to remove the 99 KG of dross within the ore.
Similarly, the unpurified
the soul within cannot on its own remove the dross within... it needs an external
medium... a body in order to come back to its original pristine pure form. And
in the process... this so-called impure Atman is required to manifest a body,
which consists of a long chain of manifestations... a total of 8.4 Million manifestations
and a Life cycle of 96.4 million earthly years... a long journey indeed!
In Hinduism... the total Life cycle in life of an atman the soul
within which consists of 8.4 Million manifestations and a total
journey of 96.4 Million years is well-defined in the glory of Bhagavad
Gita... the one and only sacred Bhagavad Gita... the
by Lord Krishna (an Avatar).
Lord Krishna descended on Mother Earth above 3600 years ago... about
1500 years before the advent
of Jesus Christ on Mother Earth.
Gita... the Song Supreme... is music to the ears! It spells out in
total clarity about the meaning of Life... the core of Life itself in its entirety.
It defines the relationship between various forms of Life... the relationship
of a Human Being with single cell formation, multi-cell formation, insect Life,
plant Life and finally the form of an animal before evolving into the form of
a Human Being... the highest stage of manifest Life in the system of God Almighty.
Reaching the stage of a Human Being... every Human Being has the
power to gain enlightenment
Realization) and finally salvation
in Hinduism). Bhagwan
Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet
Mohammed all gained salvation after reaching the stage
of Enlightenment. These Souls became immortal
forever, as they had nowhere else to go having achieved salvation...
cycle of birth and death had ceased to exist for them.
They had reached the pristine form of purity... the initial stage
from which they had started on their journey at the time of Pralaya
(the dissolution of cosmos) and the big bang (the start of the cosmos).
Here I need to explain what
happens during the time period between pralaya (the dissolution of cosmos) and
the big bang (the start of the cosmos). Sooner the cosmos collapses (the complete
dissolution of cosmos occurs)... the time of pralaya in Hinduism... all atmans
(souls) in the cosmos achieve the state of salvation by the Grace of God. All
atmans (souls) having become purified and regained their original pristine pure
form... they reduce to the size of half a thumb... the definition of God Almighty.
In a nutshell, God Almighty is nothing else but the combined power
of all purified atmans (souls) in the cosmos at a given point of
time. This is the one and only definition of God, the Almighty
Creator. Imagine the mighty Cosmos getting reduced to
half the size of a thumb... this powerful source of energy we call
God Almighty is unable to contain this force of unimaginable energy
for long... it explodes with a big bang only to create a new cosmos...
a new source of Life!
interpretation in Jainism
is wrong for as per the doctrines of Jainism "in whatever state the Atmans are...
they shall again start cosmic journey from the same stage in the next formation
of the cosmos... it cannot be... unless and until all atmans in the cosmos comeback
to original pristine pure form... the dissolution of cosmos cannot occur. If the
dissolution of cosmos does not occur... how can we expect a new cosmos to take
birth! I was born a Jain... the moment I realized
god... all religions became the same for me... I now do not write my
name as Vijay Kumar Jain but I have now become Vijay
Kumar... the man who realized God in 1993.
Glory is to God, the omnipotent Creator of the cosmos for having showered upon
me his Grace to realize god within this Lifetime. The total Jain community desist
my thinking... they feel I have gone wrong somewhere. They fail to realize that
Lord Krishna... who advocated the preaching's of Bhagavad Gita came around 1000
years before the advent of Bhagwan Mahavira. They also fail to realize that it
was only after Bhagwan Mahavira (the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism) descended on
Mother Earth did Jainism took its roots.
was only in the times of Bhagwan Mahavira that the complete Philosophy of Jainism
came to be understood by the masses in general. Before the 24th Tirthankara...
all the sacred knowledge contained in the doctrines of Jainism was limited to
the Arihants (one who had gained Self Realization and reached the stage of Kaivalya
Jnana) and the learned Scholars of the time. It is only when the Teachings
or a doctrine gets precipitated that it has access to the masses. Before that
there was no Jainism religion as such. The advent of Jainism religion can be considered
from the time of advent of 24th Tirthankara Bhagwan Mahavira... not before! The
following of the doctrine of Bhagwan Mahavira came to be known as Jainism.
Continuing with the
journey of The Soul Within the cosmos... as time passes by... the cosmic system
cools down and gives way to various universes, galaxies, milky ways and finally
solar systems that have planets like Mother Earth rotating around it. These planets
with passage of time become conducive for growth of Life. Time is now ripe for
germination... it is the time for impregnation. Souls Atmans can now manifest
a Life on Mother Earth... and hence shall start cosmic journey of Life itself...
the journey of an Atman as a single cell formation (the first manifestation)...
the journey as an amoeba (single cell formation)!
the different phases of evolution...
this single cell formation takes the form of a multi-cell formation. Subsequently
it takes the form of an insect Life, than a plant Life, an animal form and finally
evolves itself as a Human
Being... the highest stage of manifestation in the Life of an atman
the soul within. Glory is to God Almighty for now as Human Beings can an Atman
gain its lost pristine glory... it is now that atman the soul within can come
back to its original pristine pure form... the form of a purified Atman.
This journey from the
single cell formation to the form of a Human Being requires a minimum of 7.3 Million
manifestations... even as a Human Being there are 1.1 Million types of manifestations.
beings are the most privileged form of Life on Mother Earth. It is
only as a Human Being can we realize the value of Life... the meaning of Life
itself... can digest the Philosophy and the meaning of Life in totality!
Meaning of Life: Definition
quote what is meaning of life philosophy!
need to clearly understand that in all the initial stages of Life... the single
cell formation, the multi-cell formation, the insect Life, the plant Life and
the form of an animal... it was not within the means of these Life forms to assess
the meaning of Life. It is only as a Human Being can we think and know the value
of Life... it is an irony of fate that most Human Beings as on day indulge in
actions that would even put the animal Life to shame.
animals for the sake of pleasure and killing of lower forms of Life by an animal
for the sake of eating is something very different. One indulges for pleasure
and other for the sake of maintaining Life... the body itself. It has really become
difficult to differentiate the animal between the two?
