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
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!
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
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!
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
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).
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
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
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
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!
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
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.
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
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
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!
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!
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
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 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.
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
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
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)
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!
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
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
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!
