Query: I am on the journey of enlightenment myself. I really would like your
giudance, please help me!!! In peace and goodness|
When I started on this
journey at 11 years of age, I had not the slightest inkling that I would see God one day in the present life, leave
apart the question of how many years from now But one thing I was very sure of was that if God was to give a
darshan to someone on Mother earth it was to be me. Inherently I knew that purity of Mind was to be maintained at
Even as a child I could see people cheating God when they were alone in
the surroundings of their house or the office. When I used to challenge such people of their untruthfulness
they used to counter that no one had seen them making a theft. I inherently knew that these people were
fooling their own self for God was everywhere and he takes care of all our actions be they good or
One had to be hundred percent truthful if he ever was to realize self in
the present life ... a very difficult task as in the day-to-day mundane affairs of life sometimes even
unknowingly one may be untruthful and unless one knows the right path of repenting how to absolve self out of
the situation. There had been a King Vikramaditya in India in the past who was famous for his truthfulness. I
followed his path of Tapasya (Prayer) ... and one-day I knew I had become an absolutely truthful human
Still, there was no God to be seen anywhere. I subsequently Realized that
apart from being truthful one had to practice Celibacy to its extreme end. Not involving one self in sexual
activities of any nature alone is not sufficient. The complete definition of Celibacy meant not involving one
self in sexual activities physically but even mentally. It was very difficult for me to find out what was the
meaning of mental sexual activities. In spite of all my best efforts in controlling sexual desires I was
Sweet dreams is a common occurrence. I had to somehow over come it. I realized as everyone on Mother Earth were
sons and daughters of God, I had to treat every lady on Mother earth either as my mother, sister or daughter. I
deeply prayed to God day and night and ultimately even night sweet dreams also ended. I practiced physical and
mental control on sexual activities for a continuous period of twelve years and lo shortly after that I had a
darshan of God. Subsequently I Realized God in its entirety.
Mahavira, Gautama Buddha all practiced Celibacy for a continuous period of twelve years
before they realized their self. To practice absolute Celibacy as narrated above is perhaps a difficult task
but there is nothing on Mother Earth which cannot be achieved.
I have narrated above most important features over which a human being
has to have absolute control before he can Realize self. Because of the inborn nature of the Mother to take
care of its offspring, it is even more difficult for woman folk to achieve Self Realization. In the history
of India only two women achieved this status - one was Gargi and other Maitreyi. Gargi was a highly
accomplished intellectual women and Maitreyi was the wise wife of sage Yagnavalkya - a knower of Brahman, the
Almighty Creator of the cosmos. Sage Yagnavalkya is the author of Brihadarankya Upanishad - a highly
intellectual sacred text.
May God bless us all.
