MOKSHA SALVATION IN HINDUISM
You are already Free, only that you don’t know.If you do not know,what are you doing?Anyone in the world can realize Moksha Married people,Bachelor,Spinsters,even children can realize Moksha. Children are innocent,unselfish,loving and non-racist. It’s best to groom them from childhood. It’s a misconception of selfish parents that only when you become old, you realize Moksha. After realizing Moksha,one can easily work and can also find a perfect soul-mate like Radha. Moksha is realized while living. Moksha is extremely easy for those who are unselfish and loves everyone.The food for the Soul is love and unselfishness.
Krishna teachings is that the world is God itself,how can God be miserable.It’s the thought that makes you see the world,so think good thoughts.Enjoy the world,fall in love,marry,have children but remain unattached,do everything without expectation and no misery can ever touch you.Whatever comes,face happily with courage.At the same time either practice Bhakti Vedanta or Advaita Vedanta or Karma Yoga.
Ambrosial Nectar or Amrit is tasting the tasteless in Meditation.
The other name for Moksha in the Vedanta(Conclusion of the Vedas) is Nirvana. Moksha means freedom from the cycle of birth,rebirth, death and also Karma. Moksha means death of Ignorance.No good or bad karma remains in you.The state of “You are doing,yet you ain’t doing”.You are free from any karmic impact that might bring sorrow and sufferings.
If you are craving for land based on conversion,country,wealth,power,domination,usurping wealth not earned through your own hard work,realizing Moksha becomes impossible for you.Such people follow pseudo-religion.What you deserve,you will get.If you steal what you don’t deserve,then the entire generation and followers will face negativity and death .Religion that stands on wealth of plundering,killing innocent people and looting eventually falls.There can be few incidence of fighting if provoked but if religion is continuously disturbing humanity,it must go.And what kind of religion is that which cannot adjust with humanity?
Why is there so much disturbance, so much fighting and quarreling in the name of God? There has been more bloodshed in the name of God than for any other cause, because people never went to the fountain-head; they were content only to give a mental assent to the customs of their forefathers, and wanted others to do the same. What right has a man to say he has a soul if he does not feel it, or that there is a God if he does not see Him? If there is a God we must see Him, if there is a soul we must perceive it; otherwise it is better not to believe. It is better to be an outspoken atheist than a hypocrite..—-Swami Vivekananda
It’s the nature of the Soul to be free.We are ever free if we would only believe it, only have faith enough. You are the soul, free and eternal, ever free, ever blessed. Have faith enough and you will be free in a minute.What does Vedanta teach us? In the first place, it teaches that you need not even go out of yourself to know the truth. All the past and all the future are here in the present. This present is all that is. There is only the One. All is here right now. One moment in infinite time is quite as complete and all-inclusive as every other moment. All that is and was and will be is here in the present. Let anybody try to imagine anything outside of it — he will not succeed.
The Hindu does not want to live upon words and theories. If there are existences beyond the ordinary sensuous existence, he wants to come face to face with them. If there is a soul in him which is not matter, if there is an all-merciful universal soul, he will go to Him direct. He must see Him, and that alone can destroy all doubts. So the best proof a Hindu sage gives about the soul, about God is— “I have seen the soul; I have seen God.”
In Moksha realization,there is no identity left of being Hindu,Muslim,Sikh,Christian,Jain,Buddhist etc.Hence our ancestors never gave any name to the religion.The superficial names were given to eastern religion by the British.Identity is infact the biggest hindrance to realization.A realized person can never give any name to religion.
There are more than 330 million God and Goddess or Moksha realized people in India.Where else have the God and Goddess come from in different religion if not from humans who realized Moksha?Jesus Christ expressed Moksha as “I and my Father(Soul) is one”.In Mecca,there were 360 idols of Moksha realized men and women.Pagan God Allah was one of them.Buddha and Mahavira also realized Moksha. Where I have mentioned Soul,you can put the name of your God if you practice dualism.
Can anyone poison a Saint?NO.The saint will always know in advance who is going to come with poison. Throughout history, preachers who mixed lies with truth have been poisoned and they died.The beautiful and famous Raputana Princess Meera Bai danced and sang in streets in glory of the divine which became embarrassment for the king.When poison was sent to her by the king,she already knew and accepted it happily.She drank it,nothing happened.For a saint all is divine light of consciousness(Soul) whether it is poison or porridge.
Saints have magnetic attraction power,so a true saint can never negotiate name of God with anyone or any tribe for being accepted as a saint.Worship of society and popular opinions is idolatry.
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.Even where action is required and you are inactive,there is a negative reaction.There is no Satan in eastern religion.All good and bad is action and reaction.
Astral body is capable of rising upwards; it is beyond gravitation. Gravitation has no power over it. Light is not under the control of gravitation. That’s why the flame of a candle can go upwards. Even if you put the candle upside down, the flame will immediately turn upwards. The flame cannot go downwards because the gravitation has no pull on light. Your astral body is made only of light, of electrons.It is very indicative that you feel that your body is uplifted. Naturally in the beginning you will be gripped by fear: What is happening? But open your eyes.You are floating and the physical body lying below. Siddhis become possible as you go deeper into purity and perfection. For example, if you can move your astral body out of the gross body you can do many things. You can visit people. They can see you but they cannot touch you. You can even talk to them by your astral projection. You can heal people. If you are really pure, just your touch, laying on of the hands. Just surrounding you will be the healing power — wherever you will move, healing will happen automatically. Not that you do it. The very purity… you have become a vehicle of the infinite forces.
A prophet arises, promises all kinds of rewards to those who will follow him and eternal doom to those who will not. Thus he makes his ideas spread. All existent religions that are spreading are tremendously fanatic. The more a sect hates other sects, the greater is its success and the more people it draws into its fold. My conclusion, after travelling over a good part of the world and living with many races, and in view of the conditions prevailing in the world, is that the present state of things is going to continue, in spite of much talk of universal brotherhood.
Vedanta does not believe in any of these teachings. First, it does not believe in a book — that is the difficulty to start with. It denies the authority of any book over any other book. It denies emphatically that any one book can contain all the truths about God, soul, the ultimate reality. Those of you who have read the Upanishads remember that they say again and again, “Not by the reading of books can we realize the Self.”
Second, it finds veneration for some particular person still more difficult to uphold. Those of you who are students of Vedanta — by Vedanta is always meant the Upanishads — know that this is the only religion that does not cling to any person. Not one man or woman has ever become the object of worship among the Vedantins. It cannot be. A man is no more worthy of worship than any bird, any worm. We are all brothers. The difference is only in degree. I am exactly the same as the lowest worm. You see how very little room there is in Vedanta for any man to stand ahead of us and for us to go and worship him — he dragging us on and we being saved by him. Vedanta does not give you that. No book, no man to worship, nothing.
A still greater difficulty is about God. You want to be democratic in this country. It is the democratic God that Vedanta teaches.
You have a government, but the government is impersonal. Yours is not an autocratic government, and yet it is more powerful than any monarchy in the world. Nobody seems to understand that the real power, the real life, the real strength is in the unseen, the impersonal, the nobody. As a mere person separated from others, you are nothing, but as an impersonal unit of the nation that rules itself, you are tremendous. You are all one in the government — you are a tremendous power. But where exactly is the power? Each man is the power. There is no king. I see everybody equally the same. I have not to take off my hat and bow low to anyone. Yet there is a tremendous power in each man.
Vedanta is just that. Its God is not the monarch sitting on a throne, entirely apart. There are those who like their God that way — a God to be feared and propitiated. They burn candles and crawl in the dust before Him. They want a king to rule them — they believe in a king in heaven to rule them all. The king is gone from this country at least. Where is the king of heaven now? Just where the earthly king is. In this country the king has entered every one of you. You are all kings in this country. So with the religion of Vedanta. You are all Gods. One God is not sufficient. You are all Gods, says the Vedanta.
This makes Vedanta very difficult. It does not teach the old idea of God at all. In place of that God who sat above the clouds and managed the affairs of the world without asking our permission, who created us out of nothing just because He liked it and made us undergo all this misery just because He liked it, Vedanta teaches the God that is in everyone, has become everyone and everything. His majesty the king has gone from this country; the Kingdom of Heaven went from Vedanta thousands of years ago.
You have to grow from inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Al Hallaj Mystic –I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart. I said: Who art Thou?He answered: Thou.
Mind (Instrument),Meditation(Technique),Samadhi(Seeing Reality) and Moksha(Complete Realization)
Savikalpa samadhi is an exalted and glowing state of consciousness, whereas realization is a conscious, natural and manifesting state of consciousness. When realization dawns, the seeker enjoys freedom from the human personality and human individuality. He is like a tiny drop of water which enters into the ocean. Once it enters, it becomes the ocean. Samadhi is a spiritual state of consciousness. There are various kinds of samadhi. Among the minor samadhis, savikalpa samadhi happens to be the highest. Beyond savikalpa comes nirvikalpa samadhi, but there is a great gulf between these two: they are two radically different samadhis. Again, there is something even beyond nirvikalpa samadhi called sahaja samadhi.
In savikalpa samadhi, for a short period of time you lose all human consciousness. In this state the conception of time and space is altogether different. For an hour or two hours you are completely in another world. You see there that almost everything is done. Here in this world there are many desires still unfulfilled in yourself and in others. Millions of desires are not fulfilled, and millions of things remain to be done. But when you are in savikalpa samadhi, you see that practically everything is done; you have nothing to do. You are only an instrument. If you are used, well and good; otherwise, things are all done. But from savikalpa samadhi everybody has to return to ordinary consciousness.
Even in savikalpa samadhi there are grades. Just as there are brilliant students and poor students in the same class in school, so also in savikalpa samadhi some aspirants reach the highest grade, while less aspiring seekers reach a lower rung of the ladder, where everything is not so clear and vivid as on the highest level.
What is the difference between samadhi and God-realization or Self-realization?
There is no comparison between samadhi and realization. Samadhi is a state of consciousness in which one can stay for a few hours or a few days. But once one has achieved realization, it lasts forever.
Sahaja samadhi is by far the highest type of samadhi. In this samadhi one is in the highest consciousness, but at the same time he is working in the gross physical world. One maintains the experience of nirvikalpa samadhi while simultaneously entering into earthly activities.
When we enter into nirvikalpa samadhi, the first thing we feel is that our heart is larger than the universe itself. When we are in nirvikalpa samadhi, we see the universe like a tiny dot inside our vast heart.In nirvikalpa samadhi there is infinite bliss. There is nothing in comparison to the quantity, not to speak of the quality, of that bliss.The last thing we feel in nirvikalpa samadhi is power. All the power that all the occultists have put together is nothing compared with the power we have in nirvikalpa samadhi. But the power that we can take from samadhi to utilize on earth is infinitesimal compared with the entirety. All this I am expressing through the mind; it is not exact. But it cannot be expressed with words.
On the attainment of the absolute and transcendent Nirvikalpa Samadhi can none return to the world of duality through the consciousness ?Avataras alone can descend to the ordinary plane from that state of Samadhi, for the good of the world. Ordinary Jivas do not; immersed in that state, they remain alive for a period of twenty — one days; after that, their body drops like a sere leaf from the tree of Samsara (world).
Yogi is freed while living and has full control over death. Mahasamadhi is a yogi’s conscious decision to leave the body. This conscious decision to leave the body can be only attained by a yogi who has attained God Realisation or Moksha or Self Realization. Mahasamadhi can also often refer to the shrine where a great yogi has been buried, usually close to where he entered his final state of mahasamadhi.
The essence of Vedanta(Conclusion of the Vedas) is that there is but one Being and that every soul is that Being in full, not a part of that Being.
Any point in an infinity is the center of infinity and is always infinite.
Moksha Supreme soul looks like bright pure white light in mediation with open eyes or closed eye.The soul exist within vibratory creation where it has sound and divine consciousness.It also exists beyond vibratory creation in the black hole.There it exists as dark-less darkness and light-less light with no sound and no divine consciousness in eternal bliss which is extremely difficult to describe .White pin like light in pitch darkness.This state is called absolute or Absolute Brahman .Since we are all infinite soul,before taking millions of birth as birds,animals,humans etc we were in this Absolute state of void and will go back to the Absolute state.This is called the silence of the Soul or Moksha or Nirvana or Void or emptiness or Nothingness or Thoughtlessness or having no breath or death of Ignorance or death of superficial knowledge.This state is realized while living.This is called Realization and is permanent.You do not have to die to realize Moksha.
When you realize Moksha, seven generations of ancestors and seven generations of descendants become liberated.
The God that you worship is in the state of thoughtlessness and eternal bliss.Free soul or in Moksha. They are not even bothered who is dying,suffering or diseased.If Allah,Christ,Buddha,Rama are so powerful,they can use their magic wand and turn the full era into Golden Age of enlightenment or set you free in a second.But they don’t do that.Do they?Your soul fulfills your wishes but you ignore what is within and outside you. Raja-Yoga does not, after the unpardonable manner of some modern scientists, deny the existence of facts which are difficult to explain; on the other hand, it gently yet in no uncertain terms tells the superstitious that miracles, and answers to prayers, and powers of faith, though true as facts, are not rendered comprehensible through the superstitious explanation of attributing them to the agency of a being, or beings, above the clouds.It declares that each man is only a conduit for the infinite ocean of knowledge and power(Soul) that lies behind mankind. It teaches that desires and wants are in man, that the power of supply is also in man; and that wherever and whenever a desire, a want, a prayer has been fulfilled, it was out of this infinite magazine that the supply came, and not from any supernatural being.
“There is no God separate from you, no God higher than you, the real ‘you’. All the gods are little beings to you, all the ideas of God and Father in heaven are but your own reflection. God Himself is your image. ‘God created man after His own image.’ That is wrong. Man creates God after his own image. That is right. Throughout the universe we are creating gods after our own image. “—-Swami Vivekananda.
