Gita shloka X.2: In
Bhagvad Gita chapter X shloka 2 Lord
Krishna imparts to Arjuna the secret of the domain of God Almighty.
None whomsoever has ever seen God with his physical eyes ... comprehending God
is beyond the domain of senses and mind. Only after we have risen above a certain
mental level can we visualize from our inner eyes the true concept of God. During
the times of war sometimes a reconnaissance by flight is done to assess the ground
realities ... which is neither possible nor feasible while remaining on the ground.
This cuts down heavily on the casualties and augments the already existent planning.
In the domain of God we have to take absolute control over our senses and also
the mind before we can even think of visualizing the mighty power of God Almighty.
do we establish control over the mental powers ... is something which every Human
Being longs for! Something beyond our reach using the available physical means.
The power of celibacy practiced in its entirety ... followed by awakening of Kundalini
which in turn energizes the Sahasrara Chakra in our forehead (the thousand leaf
lotus petaled chamber in our brain). The moment the Sahasrara Chakra is awakened
... all the dormant energies in the brain get released. This leads to opening
up of inherent powers that be ... one establishes contact with God Almighty for
the balance of Life. What a blissful stage it would be. All dross having removed
... our atman the soul within reaches the last leg of Cosmic Life. Our Atman becomes
one with the Creator.
and mind are limited to a Human Being ... the highest manifested power on Mother
Earth ... no other being encompasses powers anything even comparable with that
of a Human Being. Only Human Being has the power to think ... to think logically
until the final goal is achieved. The common man also thinks but he is always
confused ... one whose thinking is focused and already has framed a goal of Life
... how can such a one be left behind without ever achieving his goal ... Madame
Curie, Henry Ford, Winston Churchill are some examples who fought against the
existing norms of time ... their indomitable will succeeded in the end ... fear
was never the cause for worry. They stood the ground even in most adverse circumstances.
They fought well within themselves and always stood by God ... never letting down
the small inner voice which always guided them on the right path. Even such Human
Beings were far away from the kingdom of God ... for the kingdom of God belongs
to those who not only think and work for the benefit of mankind ... but having
risen above the control of senses and mind they can perceive and distinguish wrong
from right. They have become the guardian angels who shall now maintain the kingdom
of God on Mother Earth.
Krishna emphasizes upon the fact that the mind of a normal Human Being is unable
to conceive the origination of God as all creation exists since Times Immemorial
and is without a beginning. Yet, we can always feel the presence of God everywhere
since the time of big bang. It is not God himself who manifests but his divinity
... our atman the soul within that manifests on Mother Earth and shall always
continue to manifest. Such Spiritual Masters after learning of the secrets of
the domain of God can preach to the mankind the benefits of traveling on the path
of wisdom. Once we believe in the fact that God always remains unseen but still
we can always feel his presence ... what our Spiritual elders have to say in the
matter is accepted by the society. Not because they are more learned than us but
because they are the nodal points where manifests the divinity itself.
also emphasizes upon the fact that the stage of a Human Being ... the highest
manifested stage on Mother Earth is not to be passed of as a mere fact of Life.
only as a Human Being can one achieve Moksha Salvation. Even Devas (Celestial
beings) have to come down to Mother Earth and take the garb of a Human Being before
final liberation can take place. No other form other than of a Human Being can
achieve Salvation (moksha). Having reached the highest stage of manifested Life
... must we all not strive to obtain Salvation
in the present life! Difficult ... yet, not unachievable. We, living on Mother
Earth strive to gain the kingdom of Heaven after we leave the body ... only again
to come back on Mother Earth ... take the garb of a Human Being and realize God.
The cycle can always go on and on ... until we realize the subtle truth. Does
it mean that while in Heaven we cannot gain God Realization ... Emancipation forever
from the cycle of birth
and death ... yes, we never can do that ... we need to come back to
Mother Earth ... take the body of a Human Being ... become a Spiritual Master
of the highest order like King Arjuna ... only then can we hope to achieve liberation
from the manifest Life forever.
masters who have not yet realized God ... Spiritual leaders of the level of Aurobindo,
Vivekananda, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Acharya Rajneesh Osho ... they also need to
rise still higher up the mental plain before they can achieve liberation forever
from the cycle of Life and Death. All these masters truly desired Self Realization
in their Life yet, could not succeed and all have truthfully admitted of this
fact in their biographies and autobiographies. Similarly as heating water to the
temperatures of 99 degrees centigrade cannot produce enough steam power enabling
a steam engine to get started ... one needs to reach the hundred percent level
before full steam power can be generated to give the final thrust to the Spiritual
engine of Life. Vivekananda left his body at 99 degrees centigrade ... he was
aware of it ... he deeply repented it yet, he had no solution. Similarly, Aurobindo
desired God Realization within this Life and admitted at the end part of his Life
that in spite of all the efforts he could not attain Self Realization and hoped
that in the next Life he would attain it ... such was the will power of these
Spiritual Masters! Admitting of their failures and achievements in public is a
feat which cannot be accomplished by man of lower virtues.
so? Not even the Spiritual Masters who have accomplished a certain state of Spiritual
development are unable to conceive the concept of God. Not possible for Celestial
beings (Devtas) and even Spiritual Masters ... there must be something divine
in reaching the stage of God Realization. To distinguish the Pearls from the ordinary
stones ... to reach a stage when everything is permanent bliss ... what more is
there to seek after having realized God.
Lord Krishna emphasizes on Pandava King Arjuna the virtues of knowing God and
permanently residing in his domain after God Realization.
