to know ways to get closer to God... become a spiritual
being... a traveler of the spiritual path... a serious
seeker of spirituality not religion... the path
of rituals! If I seriously want to know how do I
get closer to God... we need understanding the following
precepts of Hinduism detailed in sacred Bhagavad-Gita...
the foremost of all sacred scriptures of Hinduism
existing on mother Earth!
of Hinduism is one such document that contains ABC
of everything contained in universe... the whole
cosmos (the present cosmos consists of many universes).
Amongst all the sacred scriptures existing on Mother
Earth relating to every region, Bhagavad-Gita of
Hinduism is the foremost of all that contains everything
worth knowable in the cosmic system!
all practical purposes... a serious seeker of spirituality...
a true follower of Bhagavad-Gita finally gains enlightenment...
the stage of kaivalya jnana! Dwelling in Bhagavad-Gita...
fathoming the pearls of wisdom contained in sacred
Bhagavad-Gita... following the teachings of Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana I finally
realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age!
700 shlokas verses of Bhagavad-Gita are without
a parallel in mankind! Yet, the contents of Bhagavad-Gita
can never be understood literally... one needs reading
in between the lines! Right from the stage of Mahavira...
the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism (preceptor)... them
Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Prophet Mohammed...
all gained enlightenment following the precepts
contained in Bhagavad-Gita!
missing years in the life of Jesus Christ explains
it all. During the missing years Jesus Christ remained
in India (erstwhile Bharatvarsha) to gain wisdom
of Bhagavad-Gita from the famed Nalanda and Taxila
universities of yore! Presently the ruins of Nalanda
lay in Bihar state of India and those of Taxila
in present Pakistan!
precepts of Hinduism that need understanding are-
What is god?
Attributes of god
Who created god
Where is god
dwelling on the subject of God we need understanding
what God truly means... the definition of God! If
we ask the masses at large... what is God probably
none would be able to explain... give the correct
definition of God Almighty! It is an absolute truth
of life that the definition of God Almighty simply
cannot be summed up in words still; the proper definition
of God Almighty is detailed in sacred Bhagavad-Gita
per Bhagavad-Gita... the doctrine given to mankind
by Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era (God manifest
in human form) God Almighty is not the form of human
beings. It is supreme consciousness that pervades
whole cosmos. If a single grain of sand is an independent
soul Atman... the whole mound God Almighty!
laymen terms... the definition of God Almighty is
the sum total of all purified souls atmans in the
cosmos at a given point of time! Does this mean
the entire cluster of souls atmans if they reach
the stage of absolute purity... would be termed
God Almighty yes, the truth is so! No sooner dissolution
of entire cosmos occurs (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)...
devoid of all dross impurities within... the cluster
of purified souls' atmans reduces to size of half
As per sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism... this
mass size of half a thumb is what we know as God
Almighty! Unable to understand this precept... the
masses and commoners take route of religion... rituals!
One either believes in Sakaar form of God (having
a form) or the Nirakaar form (without a form).
believing in rituals... the religious path of life
cling to Sakaar form of God! It is easier to pray
and worship God in the Sakaar form. Absence of an
idol of God in temples and churches would make the
masses abhor religion! It is difficult for masses
and the commoners to visualize a God without a form...
they need a medium to pray or worship God!
traveling the path of spirituality... those traveling
the path of jnana yoga believe in Nirakaar form
of God (a formless God)! A serious seeker of spirituality
understands that God is without a form... it is
a cluster of primordial cosmic energy much beyond
comprehension of most human beings. The essence
of life lay in recognizing God... be it Sakaar or
the Nirakaar form.
The followers of Islamic Dharma do not believe in
concept of idol worship... they practically believe
in Nirakaar form of God! This does not mean followers
of Islamic Dharma follow path of jnana yoga! The
gist of matter is... followers of Islamic Dharma
do not believe in concept of idol worship... rest
is all speculation!
the path... the means followed... if we seriously
desire finding ways to get closer to God... we have
to try and understand the definition of God as detailed
in Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism. We may or may not
follow the path of Yoga... yet we need assimilating
the fact that God is always Nirakaar in form (that
is without a form).
understanding God we need understanding the primary
attributes of God as detailed in Hinduism... the
sacred Bhagavad-Gita! As defined in Hinduism sacred
scriptures... God Almighty... also termed Parmatman
(supreme Atman), Brahman, Karta, Sanatana Purusha,
Bhagwan and Prabhu has three primary attributes
around which rotates the concept of God Almighty!
Brahma is the creative attribute of God Almighty.
Lord Brahma is considered creator of the cosmic
system! The cosmic system having formed... it is
responsibility of Lord Vishnu to maintain it. Lord
Vishnu is the second attribute of God Almighty...
the maintainer of the cosmic system! Lord Shiva...
the third attribute of God Almighty is the most
Lord Shiva rests the power of cosmic system... power
over life and death! Over life because unless death
occurs... no life can exist in cosmic system! Something
that has taken birth has to die one day! In absence
of death the cosmic system simply could not sustain
itself! It is only after death of body... soul Atman...
the spirit within manifests another body!
No life in cosmic system grows out of nowhere! Our
soul Atman is the ultimate master and controller
of the body. Our soul Atman has manifested human
form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities
within soul Atman! In absence of the doctrine of
karma... the whole cosmos would fail... simply decay
and die! To survive the cosmos must we ever evolving!
doctrine of karma, law of karma is accountant general
of cosmic system... maintaining account of every
single action performed by every living being that
exists in cosmos! As is our karma... accordingly
one manifests destiny. The control of destiny always
lay in hands of human beings still; mankind continues
blaming God Almighty for all woes suffered by it!
happier times people never go to temple, church
or mosque to offer obeisance to God Almighty! It
is only in times of distress we remember god....
The prime reason why our prayers go unanswered by
God Almighty! Prayers are never a one-way path.
Unless we commit something to God, God never obliges
us of its own!
The control of life in the cosmic system as per
Hinduism doctrines rests with Lord Shiva... the
most powerful attribute of God Almighty... Brahman
in Hinduism! The Hindu trinity of gods comprises
of Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva (also
termed Mahesh in Hinduism). For worshiping God...
for praying to God we do not need praying to different
most human beings worship different attributes of
God Almighty seeking monetary... material benefits
all the time! The path of religion... path of rituals
does not lead human beings anywhere! For following
path of jnana yoga... the path of absolute wisdom...
one need not indulge in different attributes of
a commoner... the masses it was difficult to pray
to God Almighty in the singular form! Since the
time of Vedas... the period of rituals... the spiritual
masters of yore created three attributes of God
Almighty to simplify the procedure of prayers and
worshiping! For living the physical manifest life
in a meaningful manner... praying to any attribute
of God Almighty might suffice.
But for a serious seeker of spirituality... a traveler
of spiritual path... it is indulgence in teachings
of Bhagavad-Gita that is necessitated! In absence
of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita... mankind
would still be indulging in rituals as in the past.
The wisdom of Bhagavad-Gita is a sure shot method
of getting closer to God Almighty at the earliest!
per Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism God Almighty exists
from beginning of time! The doctrine of Maya (veil
of illusion) explains concept of creation of God
with clarity. As per doctrine of Maya the whole
cosmic system exists only in thoughts of God. Why?
It is for the simple logic that if present cosmos
has a boundary then what beyond... and if we go
by the logic that present cosmos does not have a
boundary... it has to exist from beginning of time!
in detail it becomes clear that present cosmos does
not seem to have a boundary ... it seems endless!
In the circumstances... the doctrine of Maya (veil
of illusion) seems true! The moment veil of ignorance
removes from our soul Atman... human beings realized
their true inner self... reached the stage of enlightenment
from first manifestation as a human being until
last... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... effort
of soul Atman remains removal of ignorance... removal
of dross impurities within! By fathoming depth of
wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism
human beings finally removed the veil of ignorance...
reached the stage of kaivalya jnana (termed enlightenment
Here we need to remember that human form has been
manifested by our soul Atman after passing through
7.3 million manifestations in insect, plant and
animal form! In the human form alone we have 1.1
million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of
12.4 million years) to reach the stage of enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana). Human form is the highest manifest
stage in cosmic life cycle!
created God or why got created the cosmic system
is one query that is prohibited to be asked in the
sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism! The only query...
one single query that is prohibited to be asked
in the sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism is... why
god Almighty created cosmos? This fundamental question
does not have a simple logic.
answer to this query becomes clear only when human
beings neared the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana)... never before! Dominated by five senses
and mind human beings failed to interpret the logistics
of the cosmic system. It is a truth of life that
wisdom does not mean gaining anything in life.
The essence of wisdom lay in shedding dross impurities
within the soul Atman... the ignorance within the
soul Atman! The moment complete dross impurities
within the soul Atman removed... human beings reached
the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana). The
purified soul Atman finally regains its original
pure prime pristine primordial form which was never
concept of God Almighty... its relationship with
souls' atmans can only be understood with an open
mind following the path of logistics. Most human
beings dictated by their bloated ego failed to understand
the precepts of cosmic system. For commoners, masses
gaining materialistic riches, pursuing wanton desires
remain a permanent goal in life!
answer to where is God lay in precepts of Hinduism
contained in Bhagavad-Gita. As per teachings of
Christianity... abode of God is kingdom of heaven!
It is an absolute misnomer. Such preachings
also predominant in Hinduism. Those following the
path of religion... rituals believe that reaching
the kingdom of heaven (swarga in Hinduism) means
attaining moksha (salvation)!
Almighty is not form of human beings... neither
has it carried any other form! God Almighty exists
all over cosmos. How? At the time of big bang when
God Almighty explodes self... all pure souls atmans
scattered all over cosmos at unimaginable speeds.
In the melee pure souls atmans gathered impurities
similar as a rolling ball gathers moss.
cleanse themselves of dross impurities within starts
the cosmic life cycle of a soul Atman. Initially
starting life as an amoeba (single cell formation)...
the first manifestation in cosmic life cycle...
the soul Atman further evolves into multi-cell formation,
then insect life, plant life and finally form of
It is only in human form the soul Atman regains
its original lost pure prime pristine form... the
moment human beings reached the stage of enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
God Almighty exists all over cosmos is proved from
the fact that souls atmans exist in every corner
an independent grain of sand is a soul Atman...
the whole mound God Almighty! Every soul Atman is
God Almighty in minuscule form! God Almighty is
not different from us... our original real self...
our soul Atman... the spirit within! The moment
human beings realized their original real self...
the inner self... the spirit within all is over
for the soul Atman within!
first manifestation to last... the 8.4 millionth
manifestation effort of every soul Atman remains
reaching end of cosmic life at the earliest... the
prime reason why our soul Atman all the time prompts
from within to travel spiritual path at the earliest!
Travel in human form is the most pleasant experience
for a soul Atman. It is only in human form every
soul Atman finally liberated self from cycle of
birth and death forever!
We need not search for God anywhere... we only need
removing ignorance... dross impurities within the
soul Atman! The moment complete dross impurities
within the soul Atman removed... our soul Atman
finally reached its cosmic end of life... the 8.4
millionth manifestation! The wisdom of Bhagavad-Gita
gets necessitated for removing ignorance within
the soul Atman.
assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita...
serious seekers of spirituality finally reached
domain of God... the kingdom of God! It is the kingdom
of God where rests God Almighty... not kingdom of
heaven as stipulated in Christianity! After moksha
salvation... the liberated soul Atman finally entered
kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)...
a point of no return!
us take an example... if God Almighty consists of
64 independent souls atmans... then treating
God Almighty as a puzzle containing 64 pieces...
after gaining enlightenment and salvation moksha...
the independent pieces of puzzle occupy their distinct
destined place. This is how God Almighty again builds
The moment all independent 64 pieces of puzzle combine
together one by one... the purpose of cosmos gets
completed. As and when an independent soul Atman
reached the stage of liberation ... when human beings
gained enlightenment and moksha salvation... this
liberated soul Atman occupied its distinct destined
place in the kingdom of God.
independent souls atmans having reached cosmic end
of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the
entire cosmos collapses and devoid of dross impurities
within every soul Atman, God Almighty comes back
to its original shape... the size of half a thumb...
the collective power of all purified souls atmans
in the cosmos at a given moment of time!
enormous primordial cosmic power... the size of
half a thumb we call God Almighty unable to retain
itself for long in its prime pure state again explodes
with a big bang... giving rise to a new cosmos...
a new journey of life! As a layman... as a person
controlled by five senses and mind to fathom the
depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita is difficult
yet, not impossible!
experiencing God... for getting closer to God human
beings need traveling uncharted path of spirituality...
the path of unknown! People say the path of spirituality
is full of thorns... I say with hundred percent
confidence... conviction... path of spirituality
is not full of thorns... it is made of thorns! Spirituality
demands highest level of perfection that is possible
in a human form.
stage of enlightenment and finally salvation moksha
is not that easy to achieve! In the last about 150
years amongst 7 billion people existing world over...
only two persons gained enlightenment and finally
salvation moksha... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana! Both the spiritual stalwarts reached
the end of journey via the path of jnana yoga!
realizing God... for reaching stage of self realization...
for gaining enlightenment... the stage of kaivalya
jnana human beings need establishing absolute control
over five senses and mind. Only after we subdue
the five senses... we establish control over mind
power. Simultaneously we need practicing absolute
celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation.
The practice of absolute celibacy results in gradual
awakening of kundalini Shakti... the coiled serpentine
energy lying in base of spine! As our kundalini
rises up the spine... ignorance within human beings
removed... one became wiser in the journey of life!
The moment full awakening of kundalini resulted...
Sahasrara Chakra (thousand petaled Lotus) within
the brain opened fully.
is only by practice of absolute celibacy full awakening
of kundalini becomes possible! Never by any other
means can one reach stage of enlightenment ever!
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana...
both started their spiritual journey via path of
religion... the path of bhakti yoga! At some stage
in life both finally switched to path of jnana yoga...
the path of absolute wisdom!
is only the path of jnana yoga that leads to gaining
enlightenment in our lifetime! By transmuting the
preserved cosmic energies... spiritual energies...
sexual energies towards ultimate goal of life human
beings finally scaled all barriers of spiritual
pursuit... reached the end of cosmic life... the
8.4 millionth manifestation!
Devoid of karma the moment human beings reached
stage of enlightenment... the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi... the stage of absolute nothingness...
one experienced God all the time! Having reached
the stage of enlightenment one remains in permanent
communion with God all the time every second of
experiences of spiritual path can never be expressed
in words! They are beyond all comprehension, limitations
of wordy usage... the prime reason why contents
of Bhagavad-Gita, teachings of Bhagavad-Gita can
never be understood... fathomed literally! All sacred
Scriptures need reading in between the lines!
only way to get closer to God is traveling spiritual
path... the uncharted path of spirituality... the
path that takes one directly into inner core of
self... the world of spirit within! By following
dictates contained in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism
human beings finally get closer to God... experience
God all the time.
As our kundalini awakens gradually... one nears
God step-by-step! Sincere practice of absolute celibacy
for a period of 14 years in continuation finally
landed me in laps of God Almighty... I realized
God in 1993 at 37 years of age! My experiences of
the spiritual path... my experiences of God Almighty
simply cannot be summed up in words.
I can say at this stage with authority is... the
sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism is a sure shot
method for getting closer to God in ones lifetime.
Following the path of absolute truthfulness... eradicating
dross impurities within by establishing control
over senses... one finally established control over
mind. Practicing absolute celibacy all the time
one finally experienced God!
to God can be many... as many human beings as many
different paths to God can there be yet, it is wisdom
contained in Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism that comes
to our rescue. One single document... the 700 shlokas
verses contained in Bhagavad-Gita suffice for one
reaching the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)...
and salvation moksha forever!
self from bondage of life and death is the ultimate
crux of life! The sooner we understand it... the
Kumar "Atma Jnani"
Vijay Kumar... The Man who Realized God in 1993
