Query: How can we enable Unity In Diversity- Unifying the
I am aware of your concern yet, is there a solution to the problem of
unity in diversity you have raised? No, only when you have crossed the threshold of Human life and achieved
self realization... you reach a stage in the cosmic system when one can differentiate truth from unreality.
The whole cosmic system is like an open book... you become the knower of all... everything that is contained
in the cosmos including the identity of the real self... our soul the atman within and also God
This is what is achieved when one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi. The stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi coupled with practicing celibacy continuously for a minimum period
of 12 years results in one gaining self realization. Having reached this stage there is nothing more to be
achieved. It is only when one reaches this stage that we find none else existing on Mother Earth competent
enough to gather the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine dictated by Lord Krishna to Arjuna.
Why so? Why is it that at a particular given moment of time two people
does not realize God at the same time? Imagine a situation that 10 people realizing God at the same time. Now
you have 10 live Buddhas to follow... for the common man it is extremely difficult to distinguish between the
ten of them... who is more enlightened than the other... whom to follow and who not? To make matters less
complicated for the masses... we always have one realized being on Mother Earth at a time.
In the history of mankind there have been only two sets of contemporaries
who arrived within the lifetime of each other. They were Bhagwan Mahavira and
Gautama Buddha and Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Gautama Buddha came approximately after
about 77 years than Bhagwan Mahavira. Even though Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana existed at
the same time but these two enlightened souls could never meet each other although their disciples tried
their best for their union.
It was not to be for it was never destined so by God. Having realized
self the purpose of meeting another self realized soul carries no meaning. Having reached the end part of
cosmic life... one but retains the physical form as long as one desires to pass on the wisdom of life to the
common masses. There is no other purpose in retaining the form of a human being having reached the 8.4
Most men beings rather every Human being visualizes everything as our
senses make us see. We are unable to comprehend anything beyond the powers of senses and the mind. It is only
when one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi one realizes the real meaning of life. It is only at this
stage one realizes that cosmic journey of life is supposed to be completed in 8.4 million manifestations... a
long journey of 96.4 million earthly years. And why would God desire one to complete the journey
Proceeding on the journey of realizing our true self is not the concern of mankind in general but of very few
chosen persons... the true seekers of Spirituality who are willing to sacrifice
everything within their means to achieve the desired goal of their life! These handfuls of people embark on the
journey of self realization with a hope that they shall realize their goal of life within the present destined
What if they are forced to leave the mortal frame prematurely? The
journey was made long and difficult only because God desired self realization by a chosen one or two persons
at a time and that too probably within a time period of hundred years or so.
Your statement that having realized God realized souls must help each
other carries no meaning as having realized self one merges his identity with God Almighty. In other words
the self realized soul becomes one with God Almighty. The power of God is now available to this enlightened
soul in a minuscule form.
Let me clarify that the essence of Bhagavad Gita is available to one and all in form of different booklets
available in the market... the cheapest being available to mankind for a sum of mere Rs 10 ($.20) yet, most do not
desire to proceed on this path. We normally observe that in a class all students having been taught the same by one
teacher yet, one comes first and the other last. It is not upon the teacher to educate one... it is only up to the
student whether he desires to score high in the subject or not?
Similarly, the realized souls can only preach the pearls of wisdom to
Humanity... they can only highlight the advantages of proceeding on the path of self realization... many God
realized souls have already tread on Mother Earth... their preaching are available in form of books and
lectures... yet, none seems to be interested in proceeding on this super goal of life? Why?
The moment one decides to proceed on the ultimate goal of life... stage
of Enlightenment... all is over with this Human being... this person will have to disassociate himself from
the community and even the near and dear ones. One needs to take absolute control of the five senses and the
mind. Having gained control of senses and the mind one needs to practice the art of becoming a celibate for a
minimum period of 12 years... it is only hence that one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and finally
In the present modern era when the materialistic tendencies are at their peak... one is more inclined towards
fulfilling wanton desires, which gives more of physical pleasures. Clinging to the senses one finds it extremely
difficult to get out of control of the five senses and finally the mind. Rather every Human being has become a
slave of senses and the mind.
We lust for the physical riches of life... we not only want to fulfill
our wanton desires but we desire running after name and fame... becoming the richest individual on Mother
Earth… becoming richer in terms of physical measures and not the tangible riches of life.
Unless and until we get over with running after the materialistic
possessions of life... and understand the true crux behind the tangible riches... those hidden pearls of
wisdom contained in the Bhagavad Gita... we shall not be able to proceed on the Spiritual path of life
Talking of self proclaimed Spiritual gurus... those ignominious beings who feel enlightened when they see their
coffers getting filled up with physical wealth... those who feel happy and contented having a large retinue of
followers... Whether these followers are able to gain anything or not is not their concern... they merely desire
their own well-being and so-called happiness!
It is never difficult for the masses to distinguish a true God realized
being from the imposters of Spirituality... in the present Kali Yuga, even a child can distinguish the truth
from falsehood. The essence of life lies in the fact whether we admit this truthful fact or not. Most human
beings would not admit that they are totally ignorant about the Spiritual part of life... they always tend to
behave in a manner that by fulfilling the religious rituals of life they feel that their duty towards God and
mankind has been taken care of.
The essence of life does not lie in the fact that how big is our library
of Spiritual books but how best we assimilate the teachings contained therein. The masses tend to believe
more in rituals than gaining Spiritual wisdom... a daily visit to the temple, church or a mosque is of no
value unless we truly think of the benefit of mankind... unless we serve the children of God... we shall not
be doing our duty towards God wisely.
Bhagavad Gita advises that none must indulge in preaching rather
suggesting study of the Scriptural texts unless and until one has himself digested the core meaning of the
pearls of wisdom contained in the Bhagavad Gita. There is no point thinking of the benefit of mankind unless
and until we are truthfully treading the path of pure Spirituality ourselves.
Similar was the advise of Bhagwan Mahavira... he always advocated that
every Human being must try to become a Mahavira for within every being lies the seed of becoming an
enlightened soul... and it is true that every living being has a minuscule form of God within... and that is
our real self... our atman the soul within prompting and guiding us on the right path always and
Every God realized soul never worries about the teachings of the other
Spiritual masters... imparting the pearls of the cosmic wisdom contained in the Bhagavad Gita is the one and
only one goal of a God realized soul. Having realized that all are children of one and only one God
Almighty... the need to distinguish one from another on the basis of religion, caste or creed does not arise
and rather vanishes forever.
To preach unity in diversity is not the goal of a Spiritual master who
has realized goal. One who is able to distinguish between the false in the truth is only required to preach
and practice the absolute truth. This is the way the life comes to a full circle... the end of the cycle of
birth and death.
