WAKING UP IN TIME DURING JOURNEY THROUGH THIS WORLD

Waking up

WAKING UP IN TIME DURING JOURNEY THROUGH THIS WORLD

I was sleeping comfortably on my two tier berth in the first class compartment of my train taking me through the planet earth. Every now and then I was having dreams which were by and large, happy comfortable and soothing. The journey was smooth without any glitches or hiccups Since the journey seemed to be long, therefore, the sleep remained sound and uninterrupted for a long time except for drowsy and dreamy states happening at irregular intervals.
Many years ago, I don’t exactly remember HOW MANY, I was roused by a sudden jerk and an overwhelming realization that I had slept and travelled long and that I might not have missed my destination in my sleep. Thank God the destination had not yet been missed or reached. Though there was not an exact idea of the distance and the time to be taken but it seemed that it was not far and it won’t take much time. The train was to take me to the intervening last destination on the earth from where the journey was to be resumed in a spaceship for the ULTIMATE DESTINATION somewhere in the space. I started looking for my belongings that were to be shifted from the train to the spaceship. No solids were permitted in the spaceship because they evaporate in extreme heat in the space leaving nothing behind. So much so that I would have to leave my physical body behind to be permitted SPACESHIP boarding in subtle body only. The thought was highly disturbing, leaving everything behind I had owned and used all through my journey and I had become addicted and used to it.
Looking back at the starting point of my journey through this world the ULTIMATE REALITY dawned upon me. I had started my journey in my subtle body only and the physical body , so essential for journey through this world, was provided to me by two GENEROUS DONORS , who pooled their resources together to construct a physical costume for my subtle body, kept in the womb of one of the DONORS for a period of nine earth months ( the fraction of second of the cosmic time) . All through my journey I was generously provided wherewithal by my co-travelers . How mean of me I started staking possessive claim and ownership to the physical objects provided to me for temporary use for my survival during my journey through this world.
Ever since this realization I am busy gathering the items permissible in the spaceship, memories, blessings, gratitude, noble actions, truthfulness, and above all Spiritual Awakening.
I thank God for waking me up in time to plan the next leg of my journey.

The internal vision is the function of Third Eye

The internal vision is the function of Third Eye

Human beings are gifted with two different visions: External and Internal. External vision is practical , mechanical and very much limited. Two main limiting factors are space and time , we can’t look back and forth in time and we can’t see beyond a particular distance and simultaneously in all the directions at the same time. Third factor is the condition,health and efficiency of the eyes. The first two factors are common and identical in all irrespective of any other condition but the third factor is variable in all the individuals. Hence no two persons have similarity of vision with respect to any physical object. It is the same thing as there are no two persons, including identical twins, with identical mass, form , shape or appearance. Up to the level of physical vision all human beings are at as much advantage as animals, or even worse of because certain birds and animals are said to be having much better and more efficient eye mechanism. So we don’t have much to boast about so far as our external vision is concerned.
Besides , external vision is highly deceptive. It is affected by the psychology of the viewer and the amount of light available. The viewer usually fails to see “what is”but only sees “what he wants to see”. The amont of light falling on the object gives it different shades ,shapes and forms, thus presenting different realities of the same object under different conditions and circumstance This deception of the eyes is perhaps the main reason that some of our religious pundits have termed the external world as MAYA or illusion. The oft repeated illustration of man’s inability to distinguish between a curled cord or snake in dim light is not the only case in point. Numerous other illustrations can be added to it. In fact the function of the External Vision to meet the physical needs of the body. In addition to all this the interpretive part of the brain that creates images of the viewed objects in the mind some times plays havoc with the external and physical realities of the world. With the help of external vision human beings can in no way rise above the functional level of Animal Kingdom.
It is the Internal Vision that distinguishes man from other animals. But unfortunately most people fail to see the presence and significance of this vision and usually end up living their lives at animal level only.
As opposed to the External Vision, the Internal Vision knows no limitation of space, direction, time,abstractions or for that purpose any other impediments or obstructions. It is this vision that raises hopmo sapiens above the level of animals and then to the still higher levels of Divinity and Infinity.
The internal vision is the function of Third Eye.

internal vision

Third Eye
Primarily human beings are like other animals with most common features and characteristics . However, human beings are endowed with some special features which not only distinguish and differentiate them from other animals but also place them at a much higher pedestal with a part of God’s creative potential. One such distinguishing feature is the provision and availability of Third Eye. This is also referred to as Shiv Netra or GIAN Chakhshu . This is in addition to the Intuitive Faculty granted to human beings.
Third Eye has the capability to explore the entire abstract phenomenon which is beyond the reach of five sense organs and intuitive perceptions. Earlier only a few saints and sages were aware of this feature but now this awareness is fast spreading among the masses, thus opening the domain of Spirituality for more and more individuals . The future belongs to the highly evolved Spiritualists with very high quality of life and enhanced level of awareness.

The Hollowness of Universal and Unconditional Love

unconditional love

The Hollowness of Universal and Unconditional Love

Sermonizers often talk about universal and  unconditional love as a solution to all the problems of the world. The sermons sound plausible and convincing and the seekers and listeners are carried away by the magical power of unconditional and universal love. Everybody comes under the spell of the Seasoned Sermonizer and for a moment the whole world problems appear to have been solved. Once they leave the Congregation everything is back to square ONE. Easier said than done In practical worldly life it is not possible to love everybody and everything. It is not always easy to convert negativity of others into positivity.If that were possible, there would be no problem in the world. It is rightly said : पय पानम भूजंगानाम केवलम विष वर्धनम . The Sermonizers are expert hypnotizers and temporary mind changers. Today most of them are expert mercenaries and professionals working for themselves only and not for others or the world. They base their theories on strict lab conditions which are impossible in real life. We can only strike a balance on the basis of conditions prevailing around us and make this world a tolerably and reasonably living place. Nothing more than that can be done. If we can really love a few around us, it is more than enough, just forget about universal and unconditional love, which is nothing more than a Day Dreamer’s fancy or a Drawing Room Philosopher’s whims, or at best Sir Thomas More’s Utopia.

Theoretically the world can be made perfect, flawless and trouble free under lab conditions but there are numerous ifs and buts, which can never reconcile. Hence, AN IMPOSSIBILITY.

A new set of bodily ailments and mental disorders

Mental disorder

A new set of bodily ailments and mental disorders

A new set of bodily ailments and mental disorders is coming up that is directly related to the excessive use of computers and smartphones. The preventive measures and remedy to these ailments lies in minimum to moderate use of these devices, suitable physical exercises and spiritual meditation ( with complete detachment from men and matters) at least for fifteen minutes in the morning before getting up from the bed and fifteen minutes after lying down on bed before you fall asleep.

Avoid one and the same fixed posture while working at your computers and smartphones. Keep changing positions and postures every now and then. Take mild exercises of neck rotation in all possible directions without giving any jerks to the neck. Keep your back and spine in straight vertical position for as much time as comfortably you can, Monitor your body on regular basis and observe any unusual symptoms and problems, and if they persist consult the doctors/specialists for specific guidance and treatment. Most bodily ailments are psychosomatic or resulting from wrong physical postures/positions.

Suitable physical exercises and being with yourself in meditation is answer to most physical ailments. Don’t disturb others and don’t be disturbed by others. Cleansing your mind through meditation of undesirable clutter and trash will give you equanimity and peace of mind. And prevent mental disorders.

Mental disorder – Wikipedia

Self enquiry “Who am I?”

Self enquiry

Self enquiry “Who am I?”

Self enquiry “Who am I?” is the first step on the road leading to Spiritual Evolution. At the same time it is the greatest stumbling block as well. Most people fail to to get satisfactory answer to this question. Many spiritual teachers and GURUS come forward to help you and explain to you “What you are” but answer to this question serves no purpose as verbal knowledge. It has to come to you as an EXPERIENTIAL REALITY or ANUBHUTI in MEDITATION. You have to experience the truth and reality of the non-physical inner world that is the basis and foundation of the outer physical world. All spiritual enthusiasts have always been haunted by this moot question at one time or the other, followed by certain other self enquiry related questions:

Where have I come from?
What is the purpose of my coming to this world?
How am I different from others?
What is the real nature of my relationship with the outer physical world, vegetation and animal kingdom?
What is death? Is it the end of everything?
How do metaphysical and physical blend in human beings and other creatures?
What is ephemeral and what is everlasting?
Is there any beginning and end of this vast universe?

And thousands of other such questions which have often been asked by spiritual enthusiasts without getting universally acceptable answer. So the enquiry goes on.

What is the purpose of man’s life in the universe?

One of the questions that has always haunted me right from childhood is: what is the purpose of man’s life in the universe?

Broadly speaking my genuine answer to. this question is that life on earth has absolutely no purpose and that man is just a puppet in the hands of fate, chance and circumstances. He was never given the choice for being born. Thus life having been forced upon man without his will or consent , the poor fellow has been left with no alternative but to fend for himself, give his own meaning to life and live accordingly till ultimately he is taken away by some unknown force, which some people call God. Some religious leaders try to dictate terms to man as agents of God and force him to surrender his free will and follow the directives. Most fall in line and prefer not to use mind or intelligence in deciding the ways of life. There are some who always feel restless and do not feel satisfied with what others tell them and are constantly busy seeking full satisfaction for their curiosity . My story too has been some thing like that. I have tried to seek my own answers to various eternal questions which defy any universally acceptable answers and one such question that I intend to deal with here is: what is the purpose of man’s life on earth

Notwithstanding the fact that in the ultimate analysis there is absolutely no meaning and purpose of life, the inquisitive man continues to find meaning and purpose of life and there is no dearth of advocates who claim to know everything on the subject, it is different matter that there is no consensus among them. The end result is confusion for the common man either to make a choice from the available stuff or to make his own effort to look beyond what others can show him. I hereby place on record the outcome of my efforts. In all humility I admit that there is nothing original or final in it, and all this has percolated to me from the existing thought bank and collective consciousness, the major share coming from the highly scientific, humane ,secular and universal Vedantic philosophy. I carefully avoid using any parochial adjective or qualifier like Indian or Hindu with Vedantic Philosophy because that gives it narrow regional and sectarian shade and false credit whereas there is no such thing. This philosophy has sprouted and grown on .this planet with
collective efforts of mankind..

The purpose of man’s life on earth can be broadly divided into four parts or stages: Survival, Improvement in the Quality of Life, Self Realization and in the final stage Merger with Divinity or Infinity. While gradually passing through these four stages ,man begins to see everything from hitherto unknown perspective and brighter shades and before parting with his mortal frame attains
Immortality. Certain schools prescribe renunciation of the physical world as a pre-condition for going through the process of Self Realization and Merger with Divinity or Infinity but I have tried to take the untrodden path of BHOG (the genuine gratification of the senses and sense organs) and to my surprise and good luck have not found any hurdles or contradictions in way to my destination, though I don’t claim that I have attained what others attained through renunciation. In fact, for me there is no way to compare my destination with the destination of others. What I can simply say with my own authority is that I cannot see anything beyond where I am standing now and I would not mind walking more if I see another horizon.

What is Spiritual Awakening

What is Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual Awakening is the realization of true identity of an individual as soul or spirit as distinct from the body. It is attained by only a few and the total number of Spiritually Awakened persons in the world is infinitesimal . However, there are a sizable number of persons who get glimpses of Spiritual Awakening every now and then but are unable to retain that state for a longer period. There is yet another category who exhibit the characteristics of fully Spiritually Awakened Persons without being themselves aware of any special quality in them . They get Spiritual Awakening as a gift from God/Nature. Some persons are born Spiritually Awakened such as Guru Nanak Dev in the recent times. Some inherit it from the Guru such as the remaining nine Sikh Gurus. Such persons are the Incarnation of the Almighty. Some attain Spiritual Awakening through renunciation ,meditation , asceticism and life of deprivation such as Mahatma Buddha and Lord Mahavira, and a large number of ancient and present day Rishies and Munies. There are others who attain Spiritual Awakening by Guru’s grace such as Swami Dayananda and Swami Vivekanand . Some follow Gian Marg and academic pursuits, such as J Krishnamurthy and Rajnish.

Fully Spiritually Awakened persons are very close to Divinity. They don’t profess any Sectarian Religion and they are far above the narrow walls and limitations of caste, color ,gender, race, nationality and geographic boundaries.

The process of Spiritual Awakening is a part of the evolution of the human beings.
There is a power point in the inner world of every individual . This power point is the nucleus of light and energy. Connecting to this power point of the inner world is the first indication of Spiritual Awakening and the rest follows automatically . The Spiritually Awakened person sheds naturally his worldly relationships, possessions, all kinds of bondages and attachments like slough and new being emerges. Gradually, his narrow attachments to a few friends/relatives and personal possessions transcend into love and concern for the entire mankind and animal world. He becomes an inexhaustible source of hope, light and energy for the entire world, more so for the persons in his vicinity .

Hide and seek

When you run after God
You are in fact running away from Him
Stand still and motionless
And He will come Himself looking for you

When lost
The child is not so much worried as the father
How can God, the Supreme Father,
Lose count of his lost children

God is the undisputed winner
Of HIDE AND SEEK game with man
He makes His appearance
As soon as man admits defeat.

SPIRITUALITY MADE EASY: ( Questions & Answers)

spirituality

SPIRITUALITY MADE EASY: ( Questions & Answers)

Question: 1
Is it necessary to be spiritually awakened?

Answer:
Absolutely not. Spiritual Awakening is a need for only those who want to look beyond the monotony of the physical world and are curious to delve into the mysteries of this creation and the universe.

Question: 2
what is the use of being Spiritually Awakened?

Answer:
Absolutely no use. Spiritual Awakening is not meant for those who look for uses, utility, gains and losses.

Question: 3
Then why are some harping on the tune of Spiritual Awakening?

Answer:
A truly Spiritually Awakened Person does not talk about Spirituality at all. He gets transported to the other/inner world and before departing from his present physical body becomes the mute and passive observer of the SLEEPING WORLD. He does not like to disturb those who are lost in the false sweet dreams because he has had enough rebuffs from those whom he tried to wake up to the ultimate reality. I have also rebuffed many who tried to disturb my sweet dreams.

Question : 4
You have been writing on Spiritually Awakening since long. Are you yourself Spiritually Awakened?

Answer:
Certainly not. If I were Spiritually Awakened I would have become a mute and passive observer of the world show. I simply have brief glimpses of Spiritual Awakening every now and then and find some newness, novelty and difference from the monotonous , dull routine living of the world. I find myself alone and so am trying to find out if there are others like me going through the same state of mind, dilemma and mental confusion, who can accompany me as co-travelers on the road leading to Spiritual Awakening to find out for myself what this much talked about ultimate reality is.

THE VICTORY OVER DEATH

THE VICTORY OVER DEATH

IF YOU EXPERIENCE DEATH AND PERCEIVE THE PROCESS OF DYING IN SPIRITUAL MEDITATION YOU BECOME IMMORTAL AND THE FEAR OF DEATH NO LONGER HAUNTS YOU.
IN OTHER WORDS YOU WAKE UP AND BECOME FULLY ALIVE AS A SPIRIT WITH BODY AS EASILY SEPARABLE APPENDAGE TO THE IMMORTAL SPIRIT

The most haunting thought in the mind of man is the fear of death. One thing that nobody wants is Death yet every body gets it. There seems to be no escape from it. The agents of Death famine,hunger,disease, etc. are in themselves not so frightening as is their ultimate motive to transport the victim to the Kingdom of Death. There are certain diseases like AIDS, Cancer which come to the victim with the certainty of taking him along and naturally they are the most feared as compared to numerous other diseases, which do not cause a fatal blow to man. They come just as a warning signal to man to make him aware ready for the inevitable. Scientists and doctors are today busy at least in postponing the event if for the time being they can’t uproot and eliminate it. Notwithstanding the partial success in pushing Death back a little, there is absolutely no chance of success. The ,law of physical degeneration and regeneration is irrevocable.
Now the million dollar question seeking an affirmative answer is: can death be conquered? My answer to this question is in the affirmative. If you cross question me and ask : have you conquered death? My answer again is in the affirmative.
When I make this unbelievable bold claim I am simply restating and re-writing which is already written in our scriptures.I am simply sharing an experienced truth ANUBHUTI as a common man ( not saint, ascetic or SANYASI) with the common man.

Before we talk whether death can be conquered or not, let us try to understand
what is meant by death. In common parlance death means complete break down and stoppage of human machine. Or cessation of blood circulation in the body.
For most people the end of body is the end of everything. Those who think like that before the bodily or physical death, for them there is no escaping from death. Only understanding the principles of spiritualityand putting these principles into practice can help one in scoring a victory over Death.It is a paradox that in order to conquer Death you have to experience a kind of living Death before your body leaves you. With constant practice one can learn to separate the two components of a human being, the physical and the non physical. There is no need of any kind of meditation, DHAYAN . In a place of solitude , your home or in the company of open nature try to let loose your body , make it so passive that it may gradually lapse into SHAV ASAN (posture of a dead body).As you practise this thing keep your consciousness focused on the inner world. Get lost in the inner world so much that you may become totally unaware of your body. It will serve dual purpose, you will experience self realization or ATAM SAKSHTKAR, a pure self that is nameless, formless, shapeless because all these things have been left behind with the body.

The separation of physical (body)and non physical ( Braham, soul,consciousness, mind,memory,intelligence,etc) aspects of oneself may not be attained in one sitting. Depending on the will power,determination and faith, it may need several attempts to attain this state, and some times the attainment may be partial. Once it is attained the repetition becomes easier. As soon as you have mastered this technique of being your non-physical self, the rest will begin to happen of its own. This non physical aspect of yours is real “YOU” or your real “I”.New visions, realities,horizons and hitherto unknown facts will begin to unfold themselves. You will also begin to see clearly what is meant by self-realization or ATAM SAKSHATKAR. The meaning of death will not only become clear but you will experience in reality what people around you consider DEATH. It will be a kind of rehearsal in dying. If you are successful in traveling up to this point, the journey ahead is easier and smooth. By and by it will become your second (rather first) nature to live like that. The idea of Death will never enter your mind, and it will surely be the Death of Death for you.Notwithstanding your body being in tact you will begin to live like a floating spirit or for all practical purposes you will have the ANUBHUTI of being in a subtle body. This experience or ANUBHUTI will completely transform you and it will be your Victory over Death.

The best period of life

period of life

Old age is the best period of life . The comfport level, physical as well as mental, relationships , equanimity, everything else, surpass the earlier experiences, and I often sing in my mind Browning’s lines:

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand,
Who saith “A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half, trust God: see all, nor be afraid!”
(Rabbi Ben Ezra by Robert Browning)

This is my perception at 72, what it will be tomorrow I don’t care though I am well equipped and prepared to take everything head on .

Being Self

Being Self is the highest state of human evolution. Most people walk through this world incognito , so much so that even they themselves can’t recognise themselves. They foolishly continue to ape others, one after the other. They keep putting on one personality after the other without being at ease or comfort. They are so much puzzled and confused by the outer world panorama that the thought of turning inward to find the true SELF never crosses their mind. The end result is life wasted in line with many lives lost earlier. No wonder the whole world is dominated by the highly dissatisfied, disappointed and frustrated persons. Once one turns inward, the course and destination of the worldly journey changes and life becomes simple and purposeful.

Expectations

breeding expectations

The greatest cause of unease , discomfort and pain in the life of an individual is the breeding of expectations . Knowingly or unknowingly we keep on raising the mound of expectations within us. The fulfilment of these expectations invariably depends on outside forces beyond our control. The failure of expectations disturbs us and spoils our relationship with the outer world.

People live two lives simultaneously Inner and Outer. We are the masters of the Inner World and everything works very well in the imaginary world of our fancies because there is no opposition from anybody or any outside force/source. The castles built in the Inner World appear to be very sound and impenetrable but as soon as we try to give a physical shape to our air-borne castles in the outside world they collapse and crumble like a pack of cards. Most of these castles are based on expectations from the outer world, which we wrongly take for granted, and which rarely come forth. Hence , in order to be comfortable one can decide to live in the Inner World of his own creation or be ready to face the failures of the outside physical world , which are inevitable.

Divine Soul

There is only one soul that runs through the entire universe. Every individual human being and object is revealed by the energy and light of this Divine Soul. Atma is not different from Parmatma. There is no duality in this universe. There is only ONENESS and Unity.
Though this Divine Soul has no name nor does it conform to any sectarian religion, in today’s context this Divine Soul can be called NANAK SHAKTI because the latest revelation and manifestation of this Divine Soul was through Guru Nanak and the other nine Sikh Gurus.

ATMA is not different from PARMATMA
Nor is it a part of the WHOLE
Both are one and the same element
Each nonexistent alone.

Remember, if you can’t do without God
God can’t do without you
He needs you as much as
You need HIM.

The relationship between man and God
is a pact of mutual interest
If man keeps God alive in himself
God won’t allow any harm to man.

All religions admit
That God was alone in the beginning
If He wanted to hurt or harm man
Why should HE have crated him at all?

God is not responsible for the hurts and harms

In fact he invites trouble for himself
In experimenting the deviation from the assigned path.

Forgetfulness , Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

Recently I happened to come across two cases of forgetfulness one aged 71 and the other 83. In the first case the loss of memory is partial, mainly recent memory , owing to paralytic attack, and the man is leading a near normal life with very little help and care taking from the members of joint family. In the other case the loss of memory is of higher degree though not complete and the man is living with his wife and is dependent on her for most of his chores and personal needs. In both the cases the family members have provided a highly sympathetic and protective umbrella in order to give a sense of security and belongingness to the persons concerned. The first man was a businessman earlier and the second was a college teacher, a highly evolved and spiritually awakened saint during his heydays Since I am completing 72 this July, these two cases prompted me to study the subject in detail, of course on the net only, to see the road map of my future and prepare myself for the impending probability. I consider it my duty to share the results of my study with my age-mates in case they could benefit a little from the same.

The basic information about forgetfulness , dementia and Alzheimer’s is available in plenty on the net and I would not repeat the same. I would simply share my personal perception of the issue under consideration. The name Alzheimer’s (named after the German Physician , who described this disease) is the name of a disease (incurable and irreversible) leading to complete forgetfulness terminating into death not because of this disease but other external factors and infections. In the last stage of the disease the patient is completely dependent on care takers for all his basic needs including eating, drinking, washing and cleaning. No wonder, most patients have to seek refuge in private, social and other voluntary nursing homes.

The point to be noted is that all clinically symptomatic cases of Alzheimer’s are not in fact the precursors or forerunners of this progressive disease. Most symptoms are similar to the symptoms of age-related forgetfulness. As soon as these symptoms appear, it should be taken as a wake up call and preventive and defensive devices and lifestyle , including specific physical exercises, cognitive games , riddles and puzzles should be used for mental exercise to keep dementia away. These methods can be tried even in advanced cases of Alzheimer’s without any harm to the patient, with probable positive results showing a ray of hope where no hope exists. Too much sympathetic and protective attitude of the family members and care takers may not be of much use.

THE TRAVAILS OF OLD AGE

The old persons living in the company of pre-teen children live a very long and healthy life, both physically and mentally . Most of the physical and mental ailments of the old age result from the sense of being isolated, discarded and neglected. This problem is assuming alarming proportions in today’s disintegrated families. This sense does not crop up in the company of innocent and less knowledgable children, who themselves find the best companions in old persons for their prattle. Baby talk is the best tonic in old age. This mutually satisfying and beneficial company fills the empty slots in the life of children also, particularly where both the parents are working and are not in a position to give enough time to their children.
The old persons, particularly retired pensioners, who have no financial worries fare the worst in old age, more so if they don’t have anything to keep themselves occupied. Their urge to prattle becomes all time high and they find no takers for their so-called valuable words of experience and wisdom, which are spurned by the next generation as rumblings of an insane or mentally deranged person. They try to pour out all their knowledge of lifetime on the head of the first victim who becomes handy and that is why most of the old idlers and prattlers are avoided and bypassed resulting in extreme physical and mental pain to them.

Gratitude

I am grateful to The fleeky website for giving me an opportunity to share my views with international intellectual fraternity . I hope this platform will go a long way in establishing inner world bond and intimate relationship with my brethren separated by geographical boundaries but connected spiritually, without any distinction of caste, race, nationality or creed. Long live universal brotherhood. We are the citizens of the same universe. Same emotions,thought processes flow within us. Once again my sincere thanks and gratitude to Ml Bellon.

With deep regards,

What after enlightenment?

Sign of Khalsa

Enlightenment is the the final state in man’s journey through this world. This is the highest point of human evolution Compared to ordinary mortals it is a super human phenomenon . An enlightened person leaves behind death,hell, heaven,material possessions, narrow and limiting relationships. His mind and body are in perfect health . His departure from his temporary physical abode I.e. the physical body is painless and smooth. He does not belong to any caste, religion or nationality. He is permanently fixed in a state that can be called equanimity or SAMBHAV. For all practical purposes it is a state of salvation or MUKTI, from all kinds of worldly pains, sufferings and attachment woes.The ways and methods helpful in attaining this state are available in ancient scriptures VEDAS, UPNISHADS, THE GEETA and many more holy books. But unfortunately the original authentic philosophical literature has often been tampered with and misinterpreted in translations to serve the vested interest of some selfish scholars.
The order established by the Sikh Gurus is the simplest way to attain enlightenment, and comfortable smooth journey through this world.Everything is explained in the language easily understandable by the common man. In true sense it is a universal order enshrining the best teaching attributed to enlightened souls, irrespective of the labels of religion stuck on them because of their birth in different sectarian religious families.Again some narrow minded selfish persons are trying to draw boundaries to limit and restrict free access to this order. The Order established by the SIKH GURUS is universal in nature and any attempt to call it a religion would mean narrowing down and limiting the reach of this Order.
An enlightened person is the greatest asset to the society around him and to the mankind as a whole. He is left with nothing to do or achieve except to help his fellow beings around him in attaining enlightenment. His ordinary day to day actions KARMAS , which are essential so long as the physical body lasts, are free from rewards and punishments.

Enlightenment and human sufferings

There are three main components of a human being; Spirit, Mind , Body. Mind is the adhesive or connecting component between Spirit and Body. The characteristics of Spirit and Body are easily understandable and define-able. Spirit is indestructible and unchangeable whereas Body is destructible and changeable. These are two extremes of a human being. Interestingly the characteristics of Mind lie somewhere in between the characteristics of the other two components. It is indestructible but changeable and mercurial. A body without mind is just vegetation, or in COMA state, and a Spirit without Mind is completely unmanifested phenomenon: The unmanifested means:
The unmanifested is the Absolute, the pure and formless ground of being from which creation and manifestation arise. As such, the unmanifested is free from change, the unmoved mover. It also, necessarily, cannot be explained or comprehended in terms of any manifest reality.
The differentiation of human beings is a function of the Mind only and not of other two components, which are the same in every human being and an enlightened person knows this fact very well.
A human being’s sufferings are of two types; mental and physical; related to the two components; mind and body. Interestingly whatever the type of suffering BOTH BODY AND MIND SUFFER TOGETHER. The third component of a human being , Spirit, is completely free from all kinds of sufferings. Interestingly, a body without mind is also free from all kinds of sufferings.
All kinds of human sufferings relate to BODY+MIND combination only.
An enlightened persons becomes free from all kinds of sufferings, except, of course extreme physical pains.

All kinds of human sufferings relate to BODY+MIND combination only.
Spirit is completely immune to mental as well as physical sufferings. An enlightened person becomes free from all kinds of sufferings, except, of course extreme physical pains. However, an enlightened person uses the shield of stoicism to bear physical pain as well patiently. Some recent instances from Sikh history will be more than enough to prove the point. Shri Guru Teg Bahadur and some of his followers were given extreme mental and physical pains and tortures .

( Refer to the following extract from SikhWiki)
“In the summer of 1675, the Guru, along with some of his companions were finally brought to Delhi and asked to convert to Islam or else face the penalty of death. Guru ji was also asked to perform a miracle. Guru Tegh Bahadur averred that he would rather sacrifice his life than give up his faith and his freedom or belief or perform a miracle. Thus, under Aurangzeb’s orders, Guru ji and his companions were tortured. The Guru was chained and imprisoned in a cage and was tortured in the cruellest and the most inhuman ways for five long days. In order to terrorise him further into submission, one of his distinguished devotees (Bhai Mati Das) was sawn alive, another (Bhai Dyal Das) was boiled in the cauldron and the third (Bhai Sati Das) was roasted alive before the Guru.
Finally, the Guru himself was beheaded, under imperial warrant, in broad daylight, in the middle of a public square, the most prominent public place in India, called Chandni Chowk, of Delhi, on the charge that he was a stumbling block preventing the spread of Islam in the Indian subcontinent. The exact location of the beheading is marked by Gurdwara Sis Ganj in Delhi. His martyrdom was yet another challenge to the Sikh conscience. It was then realized that there could be no understanding between an insensate power imbrued with blood and a proud people wedded to a life of peace with honour. The sacrifice roused the Hindus from their passive silence and gave them the fortitude to understand the power that comes from self-respect and sacrifice. Guru Tegh Bahadur thus earned the affectionate title of “Hind-di-Chadar” or the Shield of India.”

When it comes to man made sufferings, mental as well as physical, there is no parallel in the World History to the gory horror faced by Sikh Gurus and their followers. It is far more difficult to bear man made sufferings than self inflicted sufferings and natural calamities. It was the enlightenment of the Gurus and the Spiritual Strength passed on by them to their followers that made them bear all these hair raising cruelties and tortures with the chanting: TERA BHANA MEETHA LAAGE. The mental agony borne by Guru Gobind Singh, whose two innocent sons were buried alive in the walls, is again unparalleled.
ALL INDIANS IRRESPECTIVE OF CASTE COLOUR AND CREED OWE A MUCH GREATER DEBT TO THE SIKH GURUS AND THEIR FOLLOWERS THAN THEY OWE TO ANYBODY ELSE.
Authentic Sikh History of sacrifices of Sikh Gurus and their followers should be an essential part of School Curriculum in all the Indian Schools. This can be the greatest source of SPIRITUAL AWAKENING AND ENLIGHTENMENT.

 

The advent of Sikhism

मिट्ठत नीवी नानका गुण चंगीआइआ तत् ।

The greatest event of the Christian Era is the Incarnation of Guru Nanak Dev and the advent of Sikhism under the divine patronage of Shri Guru Gobind Singh. The tenth Sikh Guru conferred the status of Living Body of the GURUS on Shri Guru Granth Sahib. No wonder the Sikhs accord the highest degree of reverence to Shri Guru Granth Sahib taking all the care to awaken the SAHIB in the morning with traditional Sikh rituals called PARKASH OF SHRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB and with ritual chanting bidding the SAHIB to retire for rest and sleep at nightfall, the daily ceremony being called Sukhasan.The Holy Book of Divine Knowledge at earlier stages of birth during Guru Nanak’s time and growth under the divine care of the Gurus used to be called POTHI ( पोथी ) which at full maturity during Guru Gobind Singh’s time was infused with IMMORTAL LIFE and given the nomenclature SHRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB.The contents of the GRANTH , enlivened wisdom of the ten GURUS, is collectively called GURBANI or the divine utterances of the GURUS.
Shri Guru Granth Sahib is the ultimate DIVINE WISDOM, SPIRITUALITY AND ENLIGHTENMET. The most amazing feature of the GRANTH being that it is sprinkled with numerous phrases and small sentences out of which even if one is picked up for JAAP AND ABSORPTION, can transform a human being completely and make him an ideal human being worthy of reverence, and in turn frees that human being of all the sufferings and obstacles faced by lesser mortals during their journey through the world. I conclude my tribute to the SIKH GURUS with GURU NANAK’s divine message:

मिट्ठत नीवी नानका गुण चंगीआइआ तत् ।

Try if you can live this वाक् of Guru Nanak Dev. It will transform you completely.

 

Enlightenment and universal Thought Bank

An enlightened person has access to Universal Thought Bank or Metaphysical Bank, which is a treasury of all kinds of ideas, thoughts, divine laws, scientific principles, emotions, imagination and any other metaphysical phenomenon known by any other name. All these items have always been present in the Universal Thought Bank. The enlightened persons have been taking the required items from this source and offering to mankind according to its needs from time to time. Everything in this universe has always been pre-existent or co-existent with the universe. Nothing new happens here. The newness is just kaleidoscopic, different patterns, forms, designs of the physical and metaphysical world created by different permutations and combinations , which our ancient thinkers and philosophers termed as illusory or MAYAJAAL. In fact MAYAJAAL is a kind of physical/material reality in motion like the flowing of water or the blowing of wind. In fact, LIFE is the name given to this constant change and flow of the physical world. The end of motion/flow will mean the end of life in this universe, which is never likely to happen. Complete annihilation of human race , some species of creatures and vegetation is possible but the complete end of life is not possible. The blowing of wind and flowing of water will never stop, so will life.
The only unchangeable and indestructible phenomenon is LIFE FORCE or spirit. Hence the need to focus on Spirituality, Enlightenment and Metaphysics.

Fulfilment

Food clothing and shelter are the basic needs of the BODY MACHINE for proper maintenance and smooth functioning. Notwithstanding the quality and quantity of the objects available to satisfy these needs, the level of comfort and satisfaction is purely a subjective matter for each individual . A person enjoying the comforts of a palace and velvety cushions may not be so satisfied and comfortable as a person sleeping on the grass bed under open sky and soothing gentle breeze. On this count many poor persons score much higher than their wealthy counterparts, and their body machine is sturdier with high potential for undertaking strenuous jobs and more immune to disease attacks.
The other basic need of the human body ,like all other creatures, is love making and sex. On the physical plane it is basic intuitive urge for procreation and survival and carrying forward of the race . However, misusing the free will available to man as opposed to other creatures man has over a period of time made love making ans sex a function of the mind. Not only that, the faculty of fantasising has vastly perverted this natural and sacred activity. With respect to the fulfilment and satisfaction of this urge/need also, the poor score much higher than their resourceful wealthy counterparts, notwithstanding their multiple heterosexual and homosexual encounters.

Spirituality made easy: small tips

Your body is the vehicle in which you are traveling through the physical world. Don’t mistake it to be YOU. Take care of your vehicle to make your journey smooth and comfortable. Get ready to alight and become alert before your vehicle begins to show signs of wear and tear and breaks down completely. It will save you and yours from sudden shock and will ensure your smooth passage through the world . Our ancient ancestors , ascetics and Rishies set apart the last time phase of their lives for this purpose and called it SANYAS i.e. preparedness for the abandonment of your worn out and broken down vehicle.

Spirituality made easy – the purpose of life

SPIRITUALITY MADE EASY: ( The Purpose of Life):
The purpose of life first of all is to evolve from an animal being to spiritually evolved human being. After that nothing needs to be done, every thing begins to happen of its own. What happens when spiritually evolved is more to be experienced than to be explained or described. Your vision becomes very clear and with focus and attention you can become Trilok and Trilkal Darshi transcending the boundaries of space and time. You rise above bodily suffering and mental agonies,everything that is painful in human life. A lot more…………
You attain the final stage of bliss EQUANIMITY , far above happiness and pleasure.
You don’t give up any thing in life. You begin to live life more intensely, without any fear or worry.

Spirituality made easy – insights (the ultimate observer)

A spirituality awakened person leads a balanced and near perfect life passing through the material world unaffected by its deceptive appearances and stifling entanglements created by men and material. He is constantly under surveillance of the ULTIMATE OBSERVER that chases him day and night following him through every nook and corner of the world. He surrenders his privacy gladly and willfully and there are no secrets in his life. He is as naked as Adam & Eve when they were first created by God, and before they ate the fruit of knowledge at the instance of Serpent, the Satan’s agent.
THE ULTIMATE OBSERVER is a wonderful phenomenon of the spiritual world . The ULTIMATE OBSERVER is absolutely unreachable by any individual because it has the impenetrable cover of infinite observers. In simple words it can be said that every observer has a supervising observer appointed over him. All these observers are just observers and they don’t interfere or dictate. Their purpose is to create awareness and instill the feeling in an individual that he is under constant watch and surveillance .. He can’t hide anything from THE ULTIMATE OBSERVER.
A spiritually awakened person has no private life, no private relations,no personal possessions, no private activities, no secrets, nothing hidden, everything completely transparent .

Spirituality made easy

In simple day-to-day conversation people lose their cool in no time. One loses one’s cool because of one’s own self and not because of the other, though each throws the blame on the other. An intelligent and Spiritually Awakened person understands this fact very well and invariably remains away from such kind of undesirable and avoidable hostility, either remaining neutral or taking the blame on himself.
Today the greatest problem in the world, among friends, in family and between husband and wife is the lack of communication and miscommunication . An intelligent and Spiritually Awakened person gives concession to others for their deficiency. Most people don’t mean what they say AND are unable to say what they mean.
You can make enemies everyday or withdraw and take pity on others, the choice is yours.

Double standards

 

बुरा जो देखन मैं चला बुरा ना मिलिया कोय ।
जब मन ढूँढा आपना तो मुझ से बुरा न कोय ।।

I like to borrow from from others. But dislike to lend
I remember what others owe me But forget what I owe to others
I want others to honor their commitments
But I ignore what I promise or commit
I do what I like
But don’t want others to follow me.

Backbiting is my favorite pastime
I spare neither friend nor foe
When I come across them in person
I shower false praises on them

I want others to observe punctuality
But fret and fume if they are late
I take my appointments lightly
But take pride in making others wait

My memory is very sharp to remember the good I do
It does not record my evil deeds
When I sit down to meditate
I find myself GOODNESS & VIRTUE personified.

Peaceful Co-existence

This world belongs to us all

The thief, the rogue and the saint,
No one has the privilege
To denounce or decimate the other

God commands man
Go struggle and survive
If denied wherewithal of survival on earth
Man resorts to begging,borrowing and stealing

A thief is a thief
Not by choice but by compulsion
Keeping self & offspring alive is as much his duty
As anybody else’s

Most of us make our living by stealing
From God’s Stores
We vainly try to wash ourselves clean
By sharing a part of the loot as charity

What is spiritual awakening?

Spiritual Awakening is the realization of true identity of an individual as soul or spirit as distinct from the body. It is attained by only a few and the total number of Spiritually Awakened persons in the world is infinitesimal . However, there are a sizable number of persons who get glimpses of Spiritual Awakening every now and then but are unable to retain that state for a longer period. There is yet another category who exhibit the characteristics of fully Spiritually Awakened Persons without being themselves aware of any special quality in them . They get Spiritual Awakening as a gift from God/Nature. Some persons are born Spiritually Awakened such as Guru Nanak Dev in the recent times. Some inherit it from the Guru such as the remaining nine Sikh Gurus. Such persons are the Incarnation of the Almighty. Some attain Spiritual Awakening through renunciation ,meditation , asceticism and life of deprivation such as Mahatma Buddha and Lord Mahavira, and a large number of ancient and present day Rishies and Munies. There are others who attain Spiritual Awakening by Guru’s grace such as Swami Dayananda and Swami Vivekanand . Some follow Gian Marg and academic pursuits, such as J Krishnamurthy and Rajnish.
Fully Spiritually Awakened persons are very close to Divinity. They don’t profess any Sectarian Religion and they are far above the narrow walls and limitations of caste, color ,gender, race, nationality and geographic boundaries.
The process of Spiritual Awakening is a part of the evolution of the human beings.
There is a power point in the inner world of every individual . This power point is the nucleus of light and energy. Connecting to this power point of the inner world is the first indication of Spiritual Awakening and the rest follows automatically . The Spiritually Awakened person sheds naturally his worldly relationships, possessions, all kinds of bondages and attachments like slough and new being emerges. Gradually, his narrow attachments to a few friends/relatives and personal possessions transcend into love and concern for the entire mankind and animal world. He becomes an inexhaustible source of hope, light and energy for the entire world, more so for the persons in his vicinity .

The winner

When you run after God
You are in fact running away from Him
Stand still and motionless
And He will come Himself looking for you
When lost
The child is not so much worried as the father
How can God, the Supreme Father,
Lose count of his lost children

God is the undisputed winner
Of HIDE AND SEEK game with man
He makes His appearance
As soon as man admits defeat.

Scripture Panchnad

Panchnad
Panchnad

I express my deep sense of gratitude and regards to Prof. Deepti Dhamija Gupta , Department of English, Punjab University, Chandigarh who has sent to me a scripture PANCHNAD penned down by her illustrious father Prof. C L Dhamija, formerly Head, Department of English, DAV College, Chandigarh who happens to be a fully evolved and Spiritually Awakened Saint. I have found the scripture to be ultimate in providing insights into spirituality and the reality of inner world. The scripture very briefly brings out all the complex aspects of Spirituality & Spiritual Awakening in lucid, easy to understand convincing way. It establishes unambiguously the AVATAR of Almighty God in the physical form of Shri Guru Nanak. The scripture is a must read and possess for every seeker treading on the path of Spirituality & Spiritual Awakening and it is wonderful sacred treasure for every Sikh.

I bow down in great humility to the unassuming fully evolved and Spiritually Awakened Saint and Intellectual Giant, Hon’ble Chaman Lal Dhamija. I seek his blessings to allow me to follow his footsteps on the road leading to Spiritual Awakening.

Natural Recycling

Life is Motion and it is sustained by Divine and Natral principles. Everything in Nature is in AUTO PILOT MODE. Nobody except human beings have the limited power to intervene and rewrite the Natural Laws and Principles. Human beings can be called the God appointed Administrators of this universe to maintain the balance of various components of this universe on the condition that they don’t meddle with fundamentals of balance among five basic elements: solid matter, water, gases, energy (sun/heat/fire ), sky enveloped in the all pervading phenomenon called God. The power and authority of God is partially transferable to human beings.
One fundamental that forms the basis of Life/Vegetation in the universe is the Principle of Recycling that in simple terms means Life sustains Life. Most life forms, including human beings, can be completely sustained by vegetation alone but there are others that are sustained by other forms of life, in addition to vegetation. There is no provision for hoarding in Nature except storing surplus produce till the next cycle of the product becomes available .
Some human beings are very vulnerable and always feel insecure and hoard foodstuff either for personal use in future or for selling the same at premium in times of extreme shortages. The rich and affluent eat more than they actually need and waste a lot of food thus causing shortages for the whole mankind. This creates a vicious cycle of grabbing more agricultural land from the forests for agricultural use and thus endangering wildlife and creating food shortage among Animals. No wonder , the ultimate victims of the greed of human beings are helpless creatures and a large number of them have already become extinct and many more, particularly man’s friendly scavengers: kites, vultures, sparrows ,crows lizards are on the verge of extinction. How ugly and unhealthy life would be without these friendly scavengers man perhaps does not know.
