Lord Vishnu Lord Shiva and Lord Krishna

Query: You say Lord Krishna is manifestation of GOD in human form but do not regard other forms of GOD like Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva as manifestation of GOD? Wasn't lord krishna a reincarnation of lord vishnu himself?

Vijay Kumar:
Not one but most human beings on mother earth are ignorant! Why? Remaining in class one... everyone wants to read books of class 12! We fail to realize that a child four years of age may be much further ahead of us on the spiritual plane! It is quite possible one may be many lives ahead of us.

Ignorant human beings tend to visualize things from a linear point of view! We cannot view whole of New York standing on second floor of empire state building... we need climbing to the top! Most human beings are inherently ignorant... travellers in the journey of life! We may be in class one... class two or class six! We cannot jump to class 12 all of a sudden!

The blind man who had the tail of an elephant in his hand... thought elephant was like a rope! The other blind man who had leg of the elephant in his hands thought elephant was like a pillar! Even though both were right but the entire scenario would emerge only when all the six blind man sat together!

So is your predicament! Unable to fathom depth of wisdom contained in my essays... one starts blaming! It is as simple as that... you are not able to visualize the whole scenario... prime reason why contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita do not become clear to one!

If I say Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era was God manifest in human form... it is also right! The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism confirms this absolute fact of life. But there has been none like Lord Vishnu... or Lord Shiva in the history of mankind! Lord Vishnu... Lord Shiva form part of Indian Trinity of gods. They are only attributes of God Almighty... nothing more than that!

Lord Krishna was born an ordinary human being! An ordinary mortal manifesting supernatural power... people called him an avatar... God manifest in human form! There has not been any other Avatar other than Lord Krishna since advent of mankind. In present times, in present Kali Yuga people await coming of Bhagavan Kalki... the second avatar... messiah of modern times!

We have to distinguish between history and mythology. If people say... if Hindu mythology says we have a total of 330 million gods... does not mean each of them was born on mother earth! They are mythological figures that never existed in entire history of mankind! Lord Ganesha is a very revered God of Hinduism yet, there has never been one like Lord Ganesha in history!

Until we learnt to distinguish between history and mythology... no point discussing spirituality! When we failed to realize the truth of religion... how could we be expected to realize anything related to spirituality! The system of God does not run on ifs and buts. In the field of pure spirituality things are absolutely straight and clear.

The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism deals with spirituality... never religion! Just as God Almighty can never be reached traveling path of religion, in the present Kali Yuga God Almighty can never be reached via path of bhakti yoga! In modern times we have to assimilate teachings of Bhagavad Gita... follow path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom) to reach God Almighty!

Those who think otherwise... for their whole life just keep thinking and waiting but gain nothing out of it! No matter how much materialistic wealth we gain... whatever our social status or standing... all gets lost the moment we leave the mortal frame! What gets transferred to next life is residual balance of karma of present manifestation at the time of death of body!

If we have a positive balance of karma for the next manifestation... it is quite possible we manifest next life form in an affluent family! What if we have a negative balance of karma from previous manifestations... bad fate befalls us most of time! If we all of a sudden win a lottery... it directly results from precipitation of positive karma from previous manifestations!

The doctrine of karma is governing in whole of cosmos! Karma acts as accountant general of cosmic system keeping record of minutest action indulged by human beings! No matter what we think in the present... our future is directly governed by our karma of past! As per Jainism beliefs every single thought precipitates into an act of karma!

Prime reason why negative thinking earns us negative marks on the karmic scale! Those with a sunny disposition and godly thinking all the time reap fruits of positive karma indulged!

In my 54 years of travail... I have yet to find a person who could explain to me the definition of religion, spirituality, enlightenment, God realization, God, karma, Dharma and for that matter any word in Hinduism glossary! Without understanding the true meaning and purport of religion or spirituality... how could we ever think of traveling spiritual path!

I have repeatedly said in various articles on my various websites... Babaji, Sri Yukhteshwar and Parmahansa Yogananda did not reach stage of enlightenment in their lifetime! An autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda makes it aptly clear that Paramhansa Yogananda did not gain enlightenment in his lifetime.

Sri Aurobindo did not gain enlightenment in his lifetime and in the later stages of his life regretted this fact! Sri Aurobindo did not hide this fact from community that he did not gain enlightenment in his lifetime yet his followers deny this absolute fact of life!

No follower of Acharya Rajneesh ever admits that Acharya Rajneesh (née Osho) did not gain enlightenment in his lifetime! Indians have a tendency to follow false proclamations for long... with the result we start living with false facts of life! With passage of time such false proclamations become absolute facts of life... by then it is too late to regress!

If we desire traveling spiritual path... we have to follow path of absolute truthfulness always and ever! Not even a single untruth is permitted on the path of pure spirituality. If I say not even one, I mean it! Ever since six years of age I followed the path of absolute truthfulness... no matter what! Even if I had to face death head-on I was always prepared for that!

On the path of pure spirituality, on path of absolute truthfulness even if God Almighty came and asked me to change my path, I would have never done so! My resolve to find God in this very life was absolute... there were no ifs and buts that could have wavered me from the path of absolute! I had to reach God in my present life time... no matter what!

Throughout my life I have never feared death! Probably it was because my faith in God Almighty was absolute. Traveling path of absolute truthfulness... there was nothing to fear in life! Looking back at life I find... not even a single soul following me... prime reason why I was all alone in my journey of life! No matter how much I searched... I never got a spiritual master to guide me!

Traveling the unknown path of spirituality called for best shots! When my kundalini started awakening unknowingly ... facing the multi-hooded cobra head-on was definitely a scary task! This was the first time in my life I truly felt dreadful any scared! So much so I shifted my bed to my parents’ room! It almost took one month for me to regain self-control!

Nowhere on my websites have I ever claimed... I am the third in line to gain enlightenment! What I have always expressed is... in the last about 150 years only two persons gained enlightenment world over... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Enlightenment... self realization... God realization truly is not that easily achieved!

Furthermore as stated by you... in autobiography of a Yogi there exist three stages of soul! As per Bhagavad Gita... we are a living soul atman on its cosmic journey! How could there be three stages of a living soul... it just cannot be! Bhagavad Gita forms the summum bonum of spirituality... knower of Bhagavad Gita finally becomes knower of all!

Bhagavad Gita simply says... we are a living soul... a supernatural power... a cosmic consciousness on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years! The moment complete dross impurities within our soul atman removes we as a soul atman regained our lost pure prime pristine primordial form!

Negation of karma from soul atman announces our soul atman gaining Mukti Liberation from cycle of birth and death forever! The liberated soul atman finally enters kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no return! The kingdom of God must not be confused with Kingdom of Heaven (termed swarga in Hinduism) which is an interim place for stay of souls' atmans!

You are primarily a follower of religion... rituals... why indulge in spirituality! The precepts of spirituality... the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita can only be assimilated by one who follows path of absolute truthfulness always and ever! Such people are rare to find on mother earth... prime reason why most human beings travel path of religion... never path of spirituality!

There is at all no merit in traveling to Haridwar... a place of pilgrimage! We do not get benefited by such pilgrimages in the field of pure spirituality! Whole of my life I have never visited temples, churches or mosques! I have never indulged in rituals that carry no meaning on spiritual path!

You tend to read essays on my website literally... you shall never get anything out of it! Most of my essays can only be understood when read in between the lines! We must also learn to distinguish difference between religion and spirituality! Religion is meant to keep the flock of human beings together so that none goes astray!

On the contrary path of spirituality takes one directly to the abode of God!

Essay by: Vijay Kumar "Atma Jnani" ... The Man who Realized God in 1993!

A to Z of Lord Vishnu explained in words everyone can easily understand and fathom. More on lord shiva can be found at Hindu Gods ... Vijay Kumar - 29 Aug 2010.

 Full text of query: I went thorough your readings and it has helped me answer many of my questions, but there were some contradictions found in your writings. You say Lord Krishna is manifestation of GOD in human form but dont regards other forms of GOD like vishnu, shiva etc any particular reason? wasnt lord Krishna a reincarnation of Lord Vishnu himself?

Also what is your opinion on Babaji, Sri Yukhteshwar and Parmahansa Yogananda who also have claimed to realise GOD, but you have mentioned in last 150 years only 2 people have realised GOD and you are the third as per you.

In autobiography of Yogi by parmahansa Yogananda lots of details about 3 stages of soul are mentioned in chapter 43 are all these true as they seem to contradict your writings? with so many various views which one should the common man wanting to know GOD should follow?
