Achieving Self- Realization

The following article is not for everyone.  It will only appeal to those rare diehard individuals who seek the highest goal of achieving God consciousness, who have a hunger for self realization (atmagyan ); For those who have an undying thirst for learning the universal truth and discovering their true divine nature.

The formula to achieve God consciousness or self realization is very simple,  but very difficult to execute. The formula is- Still your mind.

Annhilate all thoughts as mind is nothing but thoughts.

No- not even positive thoughts will help attain self realization.  The fact that one puts in conscious effort to think positive thoughts is an indication of the amount of negativity that has overtaken one’s mind. Don’t try to slay negative thoughts with positive thoughts-  just become thought free.

The world appears real because of constant thoughts.  Once thoughts subside and the mind becomes completely still- the universal truth is revealed. All sorrow and suffering disappears and one revels in the divine blissful knowledge of Truth.

One need not go on pilgrimages or chant mantras or practice extreme yoga or austerities. There is no need for ritualistic worship or charitable karmic pursuits in hope for some gain.  There is no need to twist your body into a pretzel or stand on your head.

Just be thought free.

For the individuals who are the right candidate, simply reading  scriptures on self-realization or Brahma Gyan and listening to discourses by the right guru is enough to help them understand the principle and achieve this highest state.

Prahlad- the son of the evil asura king Hiranyakashipu is known as one of the greatest devotees of Lord Vishnu. Prahlad was not the son of a great soul nor was his son blessed with any special perks simply for being the son of a virtuous soul.

Prahlad’s son Virochan who was imparted this knowledge by the divine Lord Brahma himself about 30 times couldn’t achieve true knowledge. This goes to show that just because one is the child of a great saint or has the greatest guru on earth- if one is not a worthy vessel for receiving this knowledge they just won’t get it. Whereas for one who is a worthy recipient- just a few words of wisdom heard or read are enough for them to grasp the essence of the principle and apply it undeterred until they achieve the experience of the greatest secret that even the devas ( celestial beings) failed to understand and seers strived to experience.  It is said that even the devtas are jealous of one who achieves Brahma Gyan.

Once you experience Brahma Gyan you understand the concept that God indeed is everywhere and in every living being.  There is no feeling of individualism.  There is no “I” only feeling of oneness with all creatures big or small.

With our small minds we have tried to define Him and explain Him and challenge him by limiting him with our limited senses. ( arguments like if God is omnipresent and omnipotent then why don’t we see Him or why is there so much suffering? Why doesn’t he appear to help those in dire need?).  We have had the audacity to describe his job description and then also failed him since He didn’t meet the passing grade as per our requirements.  He is not a super hero who dives in to scoop the lady in distress as he should according to our understanding of a super hero.  We have tried to measure Him on that same scale as a ninja warrior or super heroes as depicted in Marvel and DC comics.  This is where the topic of free will and karma comes in- a topic for another day.  If you plant poison berry don’t expect cherries.

He is limitless and hence beyond our senses and can only be experienced through consciousness of a pure mind. But a pure mind is a still mind with no thoughts waves disturbing it.

Those with small minds will once again mistake the stillness of mind with that of being brain dead or indifferent, but then this article is not meant for every individual. Those who are worthy will effortlessly  understand the message shared here.

OM TAT SAT

THAT IS THE TRUTH

    It is wonderful that we are talking about these things across the distances. Today’s media are allowing the apparently few to actually meet and share such experience.
