Reach Enlightenment Hinduism

The enlightenment philosophy - Spiritual enlightenment

To reach enlightenment in Hinduism is not that easy as most people world over think! In the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over only two persons reached the stage of enlightenment as defined in Hinduism... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Enlightenment can only be reached via the path of Bhagavad-Gita Hinduism. Why?

The path of spirituality is best defined in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata! The battle of Mahabharata was a fight between Dharma (righteousness) and Adharma (lawlessness). To uphold Dharma... to reestablish Dharma the battle of Mahabharata was fought between Pandavas and Kauravas!

Before we indulge on the subject of enlightenment we need to understand the proper definition of enlightenment... the meaning of enlightenment as detailed in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism! Enlightenment is reaching the stage in human form when karma burns in totality and our soul Atman need not manifest a body again.

In absence of karma... the need for a soul Atman to manifest a body ceases to exist! Every soul Atman manifests the human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! The moment human beings gained enlightenment all is over for the soul Atman within... the purified soul Atman finally regains its lost original prime pristine primordial form!

Enlightenment can never be reached via the path of Shaktipat or the grace of a spiritual master. Unless the karma of an individual is burnt in totality... the stage of enlightenment can never be reached as per Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism. Simply by blessings of an enlightened one also enlightenment can never be gained by one!

Gaining enlightenment is traveling the path of pure spirituality... absolute spirituality! The path of spirituality is best traveled fathoming the depth of wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism. Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism is one such document knowing which one finally emancipates from cycle of birth and death forever... gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!

When a human being reaches stage of absolute wisdom... when nothing remains except jnana (pure wisdom) it is termed the stage of kaivalya jnana! An enlightened one... a kaivalya jnani having gained enlightenment for ever... having liberated self from the cycle of birth and death forever finally reaches abode of God... the kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism).

For reaching stage of enlightenment in Hinduism... as detailed in sacred Bhagavad-Gita... one requires a total journey of 1.1 million manifestations in human form (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years). To gain enlightenment... to reach stage of enlightenment in a lifetime of 70 to 80 years is precipitous... requiring highest level of patience, persistence and perseverance practiced at its best!

The path of spirituality needs to be traveled with caution. I have seen many getting quite ahead in the journey of spiritual pursuit and finally abandoning their quest for reaching the stage of enlightenment! The fate of such human beings is not full of happiness. Neither living within the family they gained anything nor living outside of it!

Before deciding our goal of life we must be totally sure how far we want to go on the spiritual path! The journey of spirituality is a one-way path. Having started the journey... there is no way to return back! Similar as a seed that starts growing into a plant can never be reverted back to the position of a seed... the traveler of the spiritual path can also never revert back to the same old chores!

When young six years of age... I realized the importance of remaining truthful all the time! Something within me fluttering in my heart prompted me to continue traveling the path of absolute truthfulness always and ever. When 11 years of age I decided to go in search of God! By 13, my simple desire turned to firm conviction... in this life come whatever may I shall find and see God.

It took me 25 years of yoga meditation before I reached the portals of God Almighty... the stage of self realization when I came face-to-face with God Almighty on one-to-one basis! I had reached the stage of enlightenment for all practical purposes! In terms of spirituality as per sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism enlightenment, self realization and God realization... all mean the same!

Basking in the glory of newfound achievement is not my forte. It was the grace of God that I reached the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the stage of nothingness when I could commune with God every second of my life. This is my last domain on mother Earth. Nowhere else to go further I shall but attain salvation (moksha) at the end of earthly journey.

Enlightenment is never to be found in spiritual books! Nor one can learn anything on the spiritual path by reading the Scriptures literally. The wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita needs reading in between the lines. If we try assimilating the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita literally we shall not reach anywhere!

The teachings of Bhagavad-Gita are sacrosanct... they have universal appeal! The teachings of Bhagavad-Gita in Hinduism can be followed by any human being world over... belonging to any religion, faith, caste or creed! Even while following ones religion one can ceremoniously follow the teachings of Bhagavad-Gita and reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana).

Enlightenment can never be gained via the path of Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity or any other religion! The preceptors of all these religions namely Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... all gained enlightenment following the teachings of Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism truthfully and sincerely.

Jesus Christ during his lost years... the missing years was in India getting wisdom of Bhagavad-Gita from Nalanda and Taxila universities of yore! Mahavira and Gautama Buddha belonged to India... both gained their wisdom from the precepts contained in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism. If the sacred Bhagavad-Gita has 16 precepts, Mahavira followed eight... Gautama Buddha six... Jesus Christ four and Prophet Mohammed three!

In the erstwhile Bharatvarsha... the boundaries of India touched Persia from where belonged Prophet Mohammed... the Messiah of Islamic Dharma! The teachings of sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism are absolutely pure and clear. Without an iota of impurity... any human being dwelling on the teachings of Bhagavad-Gita can gain enlightenment in ones lifetime!

Whatever is required to be achieved in total time frame of 1.1 million manifestations in the human form... if we desire achieving the same in a time period of 70 to 80 years... it requires mammoth efforts on the part of individual concerned. The uncharted journey of spirituality is full of thorns... rather made of thorns!

For a householder embarking on a spiritual pursuit is difficult yet, not impossible! For reaching the stage of enlightenment in Hinduism we need establishing absolute control over five senses and the mind. Along with we need practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation! Unless we preserve sexual energies and transmute them towards the goal of our life... nothing worthwhile can be achieved in the journey of life!

The sexual energies are the most potent form of energy that has been made available to mankind by grace of God Almighty. Every month a particular quota of energy is provided to every man and woman... year after year without fail! Some while it away through pure physical channels... others transmuting it towards the goal of their life gained absolute success in life!

Whatever be our goal of life... gaining enlightenment or success on the physical manifest plane... harnessing sexual energy is a must! Only by transmuting this most potent form of cosmic energy human beings gained absolute success in life. Ask any successful entrepreneur... the likes of Bill Gates or JRD Tata... the story remains the same!

Whatever our achievements on the physical manifest plane... after the death of body all is left behind! What carries forward is the residual balance of karma... negative or positive! If we have a balance of positive karma in our kitty... it is quite likely that we manifest the form of a Prince in next manifestation... next life undertaken by our soul Atman!

What if we have a negative balance of karma... we might be born a laborer only to suffer at the hands of fate and destiny! The control of life always lay in hands of human beings and never God Almighty. As is our karma... accordingly manifests our destiny! Step-by-step transmuting sexual energies towards the goal of our life one finally gained success in life.

In whatever stage of manifestation I may have been between karmic scale of 7.300001 and 8.400000... I finally reached the ultimate goal of life... the stage of self realization... God realization! Having achieved enlightenment in present life... I understand what spirituality and enlightenment are all about!

No matter how many claims... whatever the form of claims... it is easy for me to distinguish the power of a candle from the light of sun! I can emphatically say with hundred percent truthfulness that only two persons gained enlightenment in the last about 150 years!

I can also say with firm conviction that in the history of mankind only two ladies reached the stage of enlightenment... the famous philosopher Gargi and Maitreyi... the second dutiful wife of renowned sage Yajnavalkya of Brihadaranakya Upanishad fame! Sage Yajnavalkya was a Brahma jnani... his obedient wife Maitreyi who was always after gaining absolute truths of life finally succeeded in her spiritual pursuits!

Philosopher Gargi was an accomplished practitioner of celibacy! Her discussions on the topic of sex with pundit Mandan Mishra are world-famous! Philosopher Gargi understood the true meaning of spirituality... the path to gaining enlightenment in present life time! By cutting across shackles of karma philosopher Gargi finally gained enlightenment in her lifetime.

The famous Gargi and Maitreyi colleges in New Delhi India are fitting tribute to the only two ladies who gained enlightenment in their lifetime! As ordained by God Almighty the path of enlightenment is meant for men not women. The bondage of Moha (absolute emotional attachment) bars women from gaining enlightenment, reaching stage of enlightenment in ones lifetime.

Lord Krishna an avatar of his era (God manifest in human form) was different from man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed! All enlightened ones duty fully carried out their spiritual duties as ordained by God Almighty but on the physical manifest plane... they failed to administer the system as any householder would!

In simpler words... for carrying out the tasks of administration... the enlightened ones were absolute failures! It is a truth of life that no enlightened one is ever meant to administer day-to-day life as normal human beings... the prime reason why the community serves such enlightened masters of their own!

It is only within the capability of an avatar of an era to administrator and simultaneously impart spiritual wisdom to masses! Lord Krishna was one of them. Within a single day the wisdom of Bhagavad-Gita was implemented by Chanakya by getting killed (eliminated) a horde of hundred Kings to stop killings of thousands nee millions of army men and civilians across borders!

The doctrine of Bhagavad-Gita has no parallel in mankind. Upholding Dharma (righteousness) when all seems lost is the call of day! In such times an ordinary mortal dons the power of an enlightened one coupled with powers of Chanakya (the most able administrator in the history of mankind). It is then Bhagavan Kalki is born... one who shall annihilate the dark forces of nature and reestablish Dharma (righteousness) all over mother Earth.

We are presently passing through darkest hour in the journey of life... a period in history of mankind when people await with fervor the coming of Bhagavan Kalki... an avatar of present era! With coming of Bhagavan Kalki... mother Earth would witness a complete Renaissance... a total upheaval that would result in start of Satyuga (Golden period) beyond 2014!

The fate of mankind depends upon karma enacted by masses world over! It is the doctrine of mass karma that is always governing. As is the mass karma performed by 7 billion people world over... accordingly shapes the destiny of world... the prime reason why even best of forecasts... prophecies... predictions come to a naught!

With change of perception... with change of thinking of mankind... changes our future... the destiny of mankind! In 1993 the day I realized God... I asked God Almighty to give me a glimpse of the coming scenario of world. I could clearly see world war starting in 1998 ~ 1999! Nothing happened except WTC affair of 2001 which was a precursor to the shape of events to come in near future!

Whatever awaits mankind shall be brutal... God Almighty demands sacrifice of 1200 million people! In the coming world war 3 expected around 2012... About 1200 million people shall perish... sinners or no sinners. Sinners would pay for their sins... the innocent need laying their lives for the welfare of mankind... for the coming Golden era!

Beyond 2014 lay the roots of enlightenment... a Golden era when most human beings would want to follow the pure path of spirituality... the path of enlightenment that takes one directly to stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the stage of nothingness! With full awakening of kundalini this becomes a possibility as with awakening of kundalini... the Sahasrara Chakra (thousand petaled Lotus) existing within our brain opens fully.

The moment this happens... the entire wisdom of cosmos is at our trips! One gains omniscience for all practical purposes. Having gained enlightenment one gains omniscience for ever... becomes the knower of all! Bhagavad-Gita is that important step in the journey of life traveling which human beings finally emancipated from the cycle of birth and death forever!
