Query: I am a spiritual seeker who is lost... Can someone tell me
Spiritual Path to God!|
"I am a spiritual seeker who is lost"... this statement I have heard
umpteen times in my life! Most spiritual seekers I have met in my life could not explain to me meaning of
spirituality... the underlying meaning of spirituality as explained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
Spirituality can never be defined in Christianity that considers Jesus Christ as the only son of God!
Why after Jesus Christ not a single Christian reached stage of
enlightenment in their lifetime! For traveling spiritual path diligently we first need understanding
underlying meaning of spirituality as detailed in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! As per Bhagavad Gita
spirituality forms the core of life on mother earth. In absence of spirituality life in cosmic system simply
could not subsist! Why?
It is spirituality that tells us we are a spiritual being... a celestial
being on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years! We
are not a human body that has manifested a soul atman... the spirit within! On the contrary it is our soul
atman that has manifested the human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities
After occurrence of big bang in its cosmic sojourn... all purified souls
atmans get mired in impurities similar as a rolling ball gathers moss! To cleanse themselves of all dross
impurities within starts cosmic life cycle of every soul atman! No sooner life supporting planets like mother
earth developed in cosmos... life evolved in cosmic system!
As a spiritual being... as a cosmic being we have to cleanse self of
dross impurities within. The human form is highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle. Every human being has
been imbibed with that special power of discrimination that distinguishes us from animals! Mounted with this
power of discrimination human beings chose materialistic or spiritual path in life!
At any given moment of time human beings lived two lives... one by
physical manifest self... the form of a human being that is primarily controlled by ego! The other life is
traveled by our real inner self... our soul atman... the spirit within! For searching within... for realizing
our true inner self one needs traveling spiritual path... uncharted path of spirituality as detailed in
It is only by assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... it is only by traveling path of jnana
yoga (absolute wisdom) human beings finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime! Gaining
enlightenment announces end of path of spirituality as ordained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
Does this mean gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally
salvation (moksha) is the end goal of every human being on mother earth... yes, the cosmic truth is so! It is
only when human beings dictated by a bloated ego pursued materialistic goals of life... problems cropped in!
One got confused... whether to continue pursuing material goal in life or the spiritual path!
At this stage Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism comes to our rescue! As per
Bhagavad Gita one needs to indulge in karma nishkama karma way! And what does nishkama karma way mean in
Hinduism? As per Bhagavad Gita our soul atman being absolute master and controller of human body... the
fruits of karma performed by human body always belonged to our soul atman... never the physical manifest
Living life like a trustee... living life like JRD Tata... a trustee par excellence... a Karma Yogi par excellence
is what spirituality is all about! In his lifetime JRD Tata... also called Jeh live like a true trustee... never
considering the whole Tata Empire as his own! JRD Tata believed in the fact that everything belonged to God
Almighty... human beings simply being a caretaker doing bidding of God Almighty!
To offer fruits of karma to God Almighty all the time is what nishkama
karma is all about! In practical life it is extremely difficult to practice but for a sincere seeker of
spirituality... for a serious spiritual seeker... practicing nishkama karma is the only way out! We have to
offer fruits of karma performed to God Almighty all the time.
Never attaching self to fruits of karma performed is the correct
definition of nishkama karma! In this way human beings lived the physical manifest life in a perfect way and
simultaneously traveled spiritual path diligently. King Janaka (father of Sita in Ramayana) was a Karma Yogi
Par excellence... he always offered fruits of karma performed to God Almighty.
Even while indulging in affairs of his kingdom... King Janaka never attached self to fruits of karma performed! The
spiritual path... the uncharted path of spirituality can only be traveled by those who practiced nishkama karma way
of life as indulged by King Janaka and JRD Tata in their lifetime!
Nishkama karma way of life is not a philosophical statement... it truly
needs to be practiced by a spiritual seeker all the way through! But most of time people got lost midway. At
one stage or other the bloated ego comes in between! Mounted with this bloated ego human beings at times
started caring for material riches accumulated in life!
I happen to know two ardent spiritual seekers who left the spiritual path
midway! One of them pursued spirituality for full 15 years but then became deranged! He now criticizes God
all the time... a serious believer of God has now become a biggest atheist of all times. The other followed
spirituality above 10 years but then lost track. He has also become disinterested in God!
The path of unknown... the uncharted path of spirituality is full of thorns... rather it is made of thorns! As many
human beings as many paths to God could there be! The path to God Almighty is never clearly defined. Every single
human being has to find one's way to God Almighty. Precepts of spirituality simply guide one on the spiritual
In my lifetime I pursued the dictates of Bhagavad Gita ceremoniously
throughout life! The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was given to mankind by Lord Krishna (an avatar of his era...
God manifest in human form) in the battle of Mahabharata! Bhagavad Gita contains truth and only truth. Every
single shloka verse is full of jnana wisdom!
Bhagavad Gita contains 700 shlokas verses that suffice human beings
reaching stage of enlightenment (termed kaivalya jnana in Hinduism)! Knowing wisdom contained in Bhagavad
Gita any human being on mother earth can gain enlightenment within one's lifetime. One need not refer to
Vedas (Hinduism revelations) in present times.
Maintaining absolute faith in God Almighty is the true essence of life. Most human beings lost faith in God
Almighty midway! Practicing patience, persistence and perseverance of the highest order is a necessity of spiritual
path. When I started in search of God 13 years of age... I had absolute faith in God Almighty!
So much so that if God Almighty himself came and asked me to switch my
faith... I would have never agreed! My faith in God was absolute... a closed chapter! It was not negotiable
ever! Mounted with bulldog determination of Winston Churchill... with all eggs in one basket I finally
cleared all hurdles of spiritual path... reached stage of self realization in 1993 at 37 years of
When I look back... it really appears strange! In my 54 years of life I
have yet to find a person having absolute faith in God Almighty! Believing in God is one thing... having full
faith another! It is absolute faith in God Almighty (termed shraddha in Hinduism) that paved way for my
realizing God in my lifetime!
The path of spirituality has some laid down principles! It is unto us to
follow these principles until the last or not! Most human beings quit midway! We failed to realize that
unless water boils to 100°C... steam would not generate under any circumstances! However best I may try... I
simply could not generate steam at 95°C but, most human beings in world continued doing so!
For viewing whole of Chicago city, I need to climb to Signature room
located on 95 floor of John Hancock Tower! Standing on second floor of John Hancock Tower I just cannot view
whole of Chicago city... this is simply not permitted... not possible in spiritual world! We have to reach
end of spiritual journey to gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!
Mesmerized by glare of materialistic riches... bogged down by beauty of
beautiful ladies galore most human beings lost their way midway! It is only by practicing absolute celibacy
for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation human beings awakened their Kundalini Shakti fully! Stage of
enlightenment can only be reached when full awakening of kundalini occurs... never before!
For full awakening of kundalini shakti... establishing absolute control over five senses and mind is necessitated!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is absolutely clear on this point. Practicing Neti (not this, not this) Shavasana way of
yoga as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana is a sure shot method for full awakening of Kundalini Shakti...
reaching God in one's lifetime!
The path towards God Almighty is absolute and clear! It is we human
beings who have to decide how far we want to travel the spiritual path!
