In the cosmic domain
salvation is the highest manifest stage that can be reached by a human being nay
by the soul atman within. On
the earthly domain salvation is termed as completing the journey by our soul atman
within. Does this mean that our soul atman within shall no more have to manifest
a body again. Yes! The dross within the soul atman having completely removed...
the need for this soul atman to manifest a body ceases forever.
is the next step after reaching the stage of enlightenment. Enlightened beings
culminate their journey by finally stepping into the domain of salvation... the
kingdom of God as termed in Christianity. Salvation
signals the end of the long cosmic journey undertaken by every soul atman in the
cosmic world. On the earthly domain it means starting the journey from the first
manifest stage as an amoeba and evolving down the line further into an insect,
then a plant, next into an animal and finally the form of a human being.
various stages of evolution are necessitated as our soul atman within the body
cannot remove the dross on its own. To purify itself and come back to its pristine
glorious form... every soul atman requires a tedious journey of 8.4 million manifestations
on the whole. This translates to approximately 96.4 million earthly years... a
long journey indeed! From
the stage of an amoeba to the form of a human being... the whole crux of life
is governed by karma. As we perform... so shall be our future! As we sow so shall
we reap... nothing more or less! In the domain of God there is no place for miracles.
the goal of every soul atman on its cosmic journey... is imbibed with certain
virtues! One who has gained salvation shall forever be seated in the kingdom of
God always and ever until the dissolution of cosmos occurs (called Pralaya in
Hinduism). The next
journey by a liberated soul (having gained salvation) can only begin in the new
Cosmos that shall form with a big bang after the dissolution of the present Cosmos.
It takes billions of years for a Cosmos to survive and finally dissolute. The
earthly domain of about 70 to 80 years of life for a human being is too small
for any comparison.
is the prime reason why it is stated our destiny being fixed and unchangeable
by human beings. Yes! In a small span of 70 to 80 years... much cannot be accomplished.
Only those who fall into the category of man Gods like Mahavira,
Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ and Prophet
Mohammed... those having superhuman determination only are expected
to accomplish this task within their present life. In
the cosmic domain... if one desires to reach the stage of salvation in present
life then one has to gain enlightenment first! Reaching stage of enlightenment
and finally gaining salvation are most crucial parameters of life that God has
built into the life of human beings.
also need to remember that it is only as a Human Being one reaches the stage of
salvation. No insect, plant or an animal has been given this power of discrimination
as is available to human beings today. This power of discrimination when properly
used leads one directly to stage of enlightenment and finally salvation. Salvation
in short is the end goal of every life. To reach the stage of salvation in present
life is considered the noblest form of living. We may desire or not but having
reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation... gaining salvation is imminent. But
why wait for that! Each and every human being must always try to reach the stage
of salvation in present life.
This has been message of all Saints and Sages of the various eras. Every sacred
Scripture to whatever religion it may belong points only to one end... gaining
salvation at the earliest within present life cycle. Who knows what we shall be
in the next life! The
end goal of every religion... the hidden message of every sacred Scripture is
gaining salvation at the earliest. This it what Mahavira did, followed him Gautama
Buddha. Next followed came Jesus Christ and finally Prophet Mohammed! All these
man gods reached stage of enlightenment and finally gained salvation in their
the last about 150 years only two persons have been able to reach the stage of
salvation. They were Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. These two sages of the
present era gained absolute control over the five senses and the mind, stepped
into the domain of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and finally reached stage of enlightenment
and then salvation.
Practicing correct yoga, following the path of Neti and Shavasana... one finally
steps into the domain of pure spirituality. Practitioners of pure spirituality
are those limited individuals who are agreeable to every form of sacrifice in
life. Path towards salvation leads one towards exit from all attachments and worldly
life... be they the family, the materialistic riches or desire of recognition.
All shall be left behind if one truly wants to reach the stage of salvation.
just cannot be achieved by desiring. We have to work for it. Salvation can be
achieved only by limited one or two individuals in centuries. So was destined
by God. To overcome and curtail the wanton desires is one of the most difficult
tasks for serious seekers of spirituality. All
religions of the world have one message... Gain salvation within this life! It
is a different matter that most of the religious preachers on date themselves
not reaching the stage of salvation try preaching it. They have vested interests
related to the worldly domain. They do not seek true enlightenment... rather they
are always after the worldly pleasures!
The concept of enlightenment and salvation can best be preached by those Prophets,
sages and Saints who have themselves reached stage of enlightenment or are on
the verge of achieving it. When Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa came across Swami Vivekananda
he knew that this particular gentleman had the ingredients to reach the level
of enlightenment and salvation within his lifetime. But
Swami Vivekananda was far away from it. He was after the welfare of the poorer
and the downtrodden. For the whole life Swami Vivekananda pursued this goal of
life which was true to his heart. Had Swami Vivekananda been after enlightenment
and salvation he could have achieved that stage at a very young age.
are those souls who like Vivekananda have different goals of life but have within
them the ingredients to travel the path of enlightenment and finally gain salvation.
Swami Vivekananda was one of the lucky few! People
in all walks of life run after worldly pleasures knowing well they are ephemeral
in nature. Why not all of us attempt reaching stage of enlightenment and finally
salvation within present life! God willing... we shall succeed!
