What is sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism all about! What does it mean when people
talk of Bhagavad Gita! What does Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the
doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna convey! What can we learn
from Bhagavad Gita? What is it knowing which human beings finally
emancipated self from cycle of birth and death forever and reached
stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
As a God realized
person... as one who realized self I can only say... Bhagavad Gita
means following to me-
As the most
sacred scripture existing on mother earth... Bhagavad Gita encompasses
those pearls of wisdom knowing which human beings could eradicate
traces of karma from within! The moment black clouds of karma gave
way to shining rays of sun... all is over for soul atman... the
primarily has three fundamentals to convey:
1. Who am I?
2. Where have
I to go? What is my destination?
3. The ways
and paths to reach that destination!
Understanding Who am I
that we are a soul atman on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations
(an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years) and not a human being...
a mortal loner in the journey of life... is the ultimate truth of
life! However best one tries... this concept does not become clear
to one. Why?
Why human beings
failed to understand primary meaning of life... the basic fundamental
behind taking birth as a human being! So was ordained by God Almighty!
So that intelligent human beings did not reach stage of enlightenment
in one fling... God Almighty ordained a long journey of 1.1 million
manifestations in human form (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million
mounted an ego within so that human beings remained engrossed in
trivialities of life! To cut across shackles of karma... to free
self from bondages of earthly domain... the wisdom contained in
Bhagavad Gita was necessitated! One needed to travel spiritual path...
spiritual journey to fathom depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Only by traveling
spiritual path... the uncharted territory of unknown human beings
finally shed last traces of karma step-by-step and reached stage
of enlightenment when all became clear from A to Z. One finally
became an enlightened one... a pure soul atman! Devoid of all dross
impurities within... the soul atman finally regained its lost original
pure prime pristine primordial form!
Does it mean...
the analogy of who I am cannot be understood through means of religion,
rituals or bhakti yoga alone! No... In present scientific age wisdom
contained in Bhagavad Gita is necessitated for reaching stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! Rituals practically carried no meaning
in present scenario! They were necessitated during time of Vedas...
Where have I to go? What is my destination?
Once I understood
who I was... a mortal human being or a soul atman I must know where
I had to go... what was the ultimate purpose of life on mother earth!
The journey of every soul atman finally culminates when human beings
reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
(moksha)! After becoming an enlightened one taking salvation is
the only recourse!
absolute purity as a pure soul atman... what is left is reaching
abode of God... kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)! The
kingdom of God Vaikuntha can only be reached when a soul atman gains
absolute purity... never before! Reaching Vaikuntha ... kingdom
of God is the ultimate goal of every living form on mother earth
nay whole of cosmos!
kingdom of God Vaikuntha... the liberated soul atman remains in
Vaikuntha (kingdom of God) until eternity! Which in simple parlance
means until dissolution of cosmos occurs (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)!
Pralaya (dissolution of cosmos) is still trillions and trillions
of years away... a time when whole cosmos dissolves to size of half
What does it
mean... reaching kingdom of God? God is not the form of human beings...
it is a source of primordial cosmic energy... something beyond comprehension
of most human beings... the cluster of all purified souls atmans
in the cosmos at a given moment of time! Reaching God Almighty means
reaching our source... Almighty Father!
At the time
of big bang (moments after dissolution of old cosmos has completed)...
God Almighty... Almighty Father... the cluster of all purified souls
atmans in cosmos explodes with a big bang! This results in all purified
souls atmans scattering all over cosmos at unimaginable speeds!
In the melee... the hurtling souls' atmans gathered impurities similar
as a rolling ball gathers moss!
No sooner life
supporting planets like mother earth evolved in cosmic system...
the impure souls' atmans immediately started manifesting life...
body after body! To cleanse themselves of dross impurities within...
started cosmic life cycle of every soul atman! This explains the
intent of journey undertaken by every soul atman in cosmic system!
to end... from stage of big bang to dissolution of cosmos (termed
Pralaya in Hinduism)... the journey of life always belonged to our
real self... our soul atman... the spirit within! The human form
was but a temporary sojourn for soul atman... the spirit within!
It was only through the human form... complete cleansing of soul
atman was possible!
stage of life (manifestation) I may had been... between karmic index
of 7.300001 and 8.400000 I finally realized God in my lifetime...
reached end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation...
last in cosmic life cycle! Nowhere to go further... I as a pure
soul atman shall attain salvation (moksha) at the end of journey!
I reached this
stage of life assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism! Referring to Vedas (Hinduism revelations) was
never necessitated in present scientific age! Nor did I follow any
rituals in my lifetime! Going to a Temple, church or mosque was
not my forte. Remaining wherever I was... I reached God in my lifetime!
The Ways and Paths to reach that Destination
the truth of my real self... me as a soul atman... the spirit within...
and the final goal of my life... I was only to know the path following
which I could reach God Almighty... Almighty Father! Having understood
the importance of human form... the highest manifest stage in cosmic
life cycle... I wanted to reach God in this very life!
When young six
years of age I inherently realized that following path of truthfulness
was to become my forte! No matter what, I would follow path of absolute
truthfulness always and ever! The sweet small inner voice of my
soul atman seemed to prompt from within... I had to follow path
of truthfulness at all costs!
why I was doing that I started following path of absolute truthfulness
every second of life! Because of my truthfulness... my classmates...
my relatives... friends cheated me all the time! I had no alternative
but to accept it as my determination in life was absolute! In spite
of all injustice meted to me I continued my journey of life unperturbed
by happenings around.
It was when
I neared 11 years of age... I developed a bulldog determination
to see God. Whenever I went to a Jain temple with my mother... I
used to check the back of every idol installed in the temple...
maybe God Almighty was hiding there unknown to mankind! Searching
God in idols became my pastime.
Do not remember
as a child how many idols of God I broke in my life only to find
them empty! Slowly it dawned upon me that God Almighty did not exist
in idols made of clay and sold by roadside vendors! Thereafter I
stopped going to temples in search of God! By 13 years of age...
my desire to see God turned to firm conviction... in this very life
I shall see and also meet God... no matter what!
As I progressed
ahead in the journey of life... literature related to Sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana attracted me the most! I regarded
Swami Vivekananda as my idol... a perfect human being! The moment
I realized that Swami Vivekananda had a spiritual master by the
name of Ramakrishna Paramhansa... I went in search of him!
to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa I could lay my hands upon... I tried
to read and digest! I could clearly see that Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
started in search of God via path of bhakti yoga but eventually
switched to path of jnana yoga in the later stages of his life!
The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism was integral part of teachings
of Ramakrishna Paramhansa!
What if I tried
to understand the teachings of Bhagavad Gita! I tried searching
for a preceptor... a spiritual master... guru who could guide me
in the journey of life! I found none. However best I tried... my
search for a spiritual guru went in vain! Exasperated I asked God
Almighty... what I was supposed to do in present circumstances!
within the moment I asked God Almighty if he could become my guide
in the journey of life! And lo, Almighty Father immediately said,
yes! My happiness knew no bounds... I seemed to have achieved everything
in life! From now on Almighty Father... God Almighty was to become
my guide in the journey of life! Whenever I had a query... I had
only to ask him!
My trust in
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa paved way for believing in Bhagavad Gita
and the path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom)! If I were to see and
meet God in this very life... it became quite certain that I was
to pursue path of jnana yoga (meaning absolute wisdom in spiritual
terminology)! Whatever Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa did or attain
in his life... I dissected every inch of his teachings!
Why not follow
one who seemed to have reached God (within my inner domain... I
knew he had)! While following teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
I came to know of Maharishi Ramana! Reading biography of Maharishi
Ramana I realized that both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi
Ramana had reached God in their lifetime!
If I were to
see and meet God in this very life, I had reached correct surmise!
Just by following teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi
Ramana I could reach God in my lifetime! At every stage of life
my soul atman... the voice of our soul atman that seemed to come
from within my heart prompted me on the right path! I was not alone
in the journey of life!
of Bhagavad Gita finally became my forte! I could not fathom an
inch of what shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita meant but the teachings
of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana were absolutely
pure and crystal clear! Without an iota of doubt I started traveling
spiritual path diligently with all sincerity!
From now on
it was never looking back! I had the wisdom of two enlightened ones
available to me fathoming which I could reach God Almighty... Almighty
Father in my lifetime! As the wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita
precipitated through various means... my anxiety knew no bound!
I inherently learnt practice of absolute celibacy was necessitated
for reaching God!
energy had something to do with Sahasra Pushpa existing within my
brain! But how to activate kundalini was the major hurdle? By practice
of absolute celibacy for a period of 14 years in continuation I
finally awakened my kundalini fully! This resulted in full opening
of Sahasra Pushpa within my brain! I had finally reached end of
spiritual pursuit... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last
in cosmic life cycle!
No sooner I
realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age... the complete wisdom contained
in Bhagavad Gita became like ABCD... it was as if I had dictated
the contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my previous manifestations!
It became distinctly clear to me that any human being world over
desirous of reaching God need follow teachings of Bhagavad Gita
In the present
scientific age... the wisdom contained in various Vedas... particularly
Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda was not necessitated!
Nor was indulgence in rituals of any kind! Following path of jnana
yoga (absolute wisdom) as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism
any human being world over could gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!
is the most precious of all sacred scriptures existing world over!
No doubt the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was imparted by Lord Krishna
in the battle of Mahabharata and is an integral part of Hinduism
but the teachings of Bhagavad Gita have universal appeal!
Any human being
world over belonging to any religion, belief or faith can follow
teachings of Bhagavad Gita ceremoniously without fail! One need
not convert to Hinduism for gaining wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita! Remaining wherever we are... one can assimilate teachings
of Bhagavad Gita truthfully and seriously!
of Hinduism is the end of all! One sacred scripture sufficing to
reach stage of enlightenment in ones lifetime... the earthly sojourn
of 70 to 80 years! It is a miracle of sorts. The original gist of
Bhagavad Gita is available for mere $.60 (Rupees 30/=) at most railway
stations of India still, how many understood the teachings of Bhagavad
contained in 700 shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita can never be understood
literally... they need reading in between the lines! One who is
sincere... one who is truthful... one who is hard-working having
an absolute goal in life can definitely gain enlightenment in present
life time! Practice of absolute celibacy finally leads to full awakening
of kundalini shakti that form part of spiritual journey... the uncharted
path of spirituality!
It is only via
path of spirituality God Almighty can be reached... never path of
religion or rituals! Understanding true definition of spirituality...
the inherent meaning of spirituality is what enlightenment... salvation
is all about!
In my lifetime
of 54 years I have yet to come across a person who could clearly
define to me the meaning of spirituality as detailed in sacred Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism! Indulging in rituals... following religion we
never reach anywhere! Why indulge in something the results of which
never take one towards God Almighty!
path in present life time is the ultimate crux of life! Who knows
what we shall be in the next manifestation... who knows what form
our soul atman manifests in next life after death of present body...
it is in our interest as a human being... as a soul atman to pursue
spiritual journey as the goal of life! Only then can we expect to
reach God in present life time.
