Query: I do not believe in going to temples or worshipping god in daily life. I
believe destiny is in our own hands. Then why is god
Continued from... Removing Limiting Beliefs Master Your
My younger daughter was so angry with God that why it had to be she who
is to suffer ... probably her examination sheet was changed with that of the other. This anger remained with
her for a long period of time. She rather had lost complete faith in God. Yet, she always kept the doors open
... it was sometimes later when I was recuperating from an operation and the doctor had advised me to take a
brief stroll after the meals in the evening that she used to accompany me. She was absolutely clear about her
goal of life ... she was prudent enough to ask, whether she should follow the path of truthfulness ... which
is full of insurmountable difficulties ... and the other was the middle path ... sometimes being truthful and
I advised her to remain truthful for the full life ... she was somehow
not convinced! She wanted examples of people who had remained truthful and yet survived the society. I could
only give her one example ... the example of Mahatma Gandhi ... she refuted saying Mahatma Gandhi was a
political personality ... he indulged in social service ... for him ethics in business did not matter for he
would never be required to do a job ... serve someone other than the society. As she was to follow a career
in computer science ... she looked forward to a job in the field of computer sciences. It was here she felt
she would have to face the trouble ... dealing with the society with full truthfulness was something
This became our daily routine ... I used to give her many more examples
and insisted upon her that she must not follow the path of untruthfulness ... she never said yes or no! I
inherently knew in the core of my heart that she would remain truthful all her life ... how satisfying it is
for me to see her pursuing the desired goal in life with full truthfulness. I only Pray to God that she
achieves whatever success she dreams in life! I am not very sure whether she has again developed her full
faith in God but I know she is also not far away from God.
It is only when we ask something of God and it is not given ... we lose
faith in the system of God! Is it right ... God shall never personally come and help us ... it can always
send us help in form of a log, a boat or a helicopter. We need to understand the crux of his system ... the
moment everything becomes clear to us ... we stop blaming God for anything. Praying to God ... asking for
something is something ridiculous. Materialistic riches are not bestowed upon us by grace of God ... it is
the result of our own Karma and nothing else. How much ever we pray ... no boon shall ever be granted unless
we do the requisite Karma.
I have seen people working hard and promising God a donation of Rs five
(say dollar five) if they succeed in their exam ... when they finally succeed they go to the temple and offer
a charity of Paisa 25 (say $.25) ... why cheat God for it is not possible for a human being to cheat God ...
if we have succeeded in the exam it is only because of our hard work and our faith in the system of God.
Nothing else had any role to play.
Now what is the doctrine of Karma? It is simple ... what we sow ... shall
we reap ... nothing more or less! If only Human Beings could understand that destiny is in our own hands and
not in the hands of God ... it will be only a matter of few days that we shall face Satyuga the golden era.
Taking control of destiny is not a difficult task ... but first we need to understand the process of how we
can control our destiny.
To take control of our destiny first we need to establish a goal in our
life ... 99.99% of the people in life never establish a goal ... yet all the time they wish for something
which they have not truly earned! God never bestows anything without Karma ... it is only our Karma of the
present or the previous lives which shall decide the course of our destiny ... and as our Karma is in our own
hands ... we can decide our destiny. Many people argue with me that it is not possible for them to get out of
the sins of past lives for the do not know anything about them. This is where I shall be of help at a later
I am planning to bring out an e-book on "how to expiate for the sins of
our past lives" (this will be a priced publication ... slightly heavily priced as I need finances to continue
serving the society through the medium of Internet for the time being and subsequently TV). If we can
completely absolve ourselves of the sins of past lives ... then there is no reason why we cannot take control
of our destiny in this life! This Mantra would be so enchanting that ... in the yester years ... Saints and
sages charged almost $1 million per person for the same (one lakh per Mantra).
Having established a goal ... we must put all our eggs in one basket and pursue it with all our might. There is no
reason why we should fail. I had a goal in life ... I wanted to meet God at the age of 11 years ... by the age of
13 my wish had converted into a conviction. Even if I had to leave the family ... anything whatsoever ... I shall
go after my goal as if I was all alone on mother earth. It was just not a feeling ... it was a conviction ...
something which I had to achieve in the present life. At 37 years of age God blessed me with his vision ... I had
Realized God ... I had reached my 8.4 millionth manifestation ... I have no life after this life ... I can only but
take Moksha Salvation in this life ... if I have done in ... So can you ... or anybody else.
If you really desire that God should talk to you ... you need to rise
above the ordinary ... you have to become a self-realized soul! You need to reach the status of
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana ... in the last 150 years only these two persons have
Realized God. Swami Vivekananda, Acharya Rajneesh aka Osho, Maharishi Aurobindo all failed to Realize God in
their lifetimes ... you need to understand the meaning of Self Realization before you can proceed on the
Merely wishing to talk to God is something like wishing for God to come
personally as done by the priest. You can keep on waiting for not one life but millions of lives ... God
shall never come ... he shall never talk to you ... unless you perform your Karma. By awakening your
kundalini you need to come to the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi ... A stage... when one can have one-to-one
dialogue with God.
Having Realized God I am able to talk to God every moment of my life ... does it mean that normal Human Beings are
not permitted to talk to God until they have Realized God ... it is not so! By the grace of God every human being
has the power to talk to God every moment of his life ... yes, we can talk to God in a different manner ... rather,
we can try hearing God. The sweet small inner voice, which prompts us from within and guides us on the right path
always and ever ... the power of atman the soul within is always there with every living being.
Particularly, with us Human Beings having the power of discrimination ...
we cannot only use this hidden power for our benefit but it is all the time available to us on our cosmic
journey. and what is an Atman (a soul) ... it is but a minuscule part of God Almighty. The power of an atman
soul is almost equivalent to God Almighty.
We need to understand that if a grain of wheat is a single Atman then the
whole mound of wheat is God Almighty ... the collective power of all purified atmans in the cosmos. Before
you embark on the journey of Self Realization ... think it hard whether it is possible for you to travel the
path traversed by Ramakrishna Paramhansa or Maharishi Ramana. Even big stalwarts of Spirituality like Acharya
Rajneesh and Swami Vivekananda failed to achieve Self Realization in their lifetime. In the case of Acharya
Rajneesh it was a single fault of his in the later stages of his life, which plunged him from top to the
He advocated that by performing free sex ... it is but possible to realize the Spiritual goal early. He was hundred
percent wrong. We can only rise above the Spiritual ladder by practicing Celibacy ... and that too for a continuous
period of minimum 12 years. Only then shall we be able to catch the lift of the spiritual life and go straight up
... this is the only path to awaken our kundalini ... and unless the kundalini is fully awakened ... we shall never
In the case of Swami Vivekananda ... he never actually desired Self
Realization in the present life ... he followed the pattern of mother Teresa ... instead he wanted to serve
the society ... the underprivileged ... those poor children of God who neither had the means nor the will to
stand up and say, Society! I am a part of you ... accept me as I am! Swami Vivekananda had very noble ideals
... he had a darshan of God by the grace of his Guru Swami Ramakrishna Paramhansa ... but that was for
intermittent times. He never wanted to dwell in the domain of God permanently. Maybe not in this but in the
next life Atman of Swami Vivekananda would definitely Realize God.
Think of it ... why do you need to talk to God ... there has to be reason
... I never wanted to talk to God ... I wanted to be with him all the time ... and I achieved the goal of my
life! Our sheer hard work, patience shall ultimately win us the day. Hundred percent faith in the system of
God is a must. We also need to practice Celibacy to awaken our kundalini.
I shall give a small incidence in the life of Swami Vivekananda, which shall make the matter more clear- Swami
Vivekananda very badly wanted to talk to God ... the reason being that before submitting himself to his master
Ramakrishna Paramhansa ... rather before surrendering himself fully to his master and Guru Ramakrishna Paramhansa
... Swami Vivekananda asked his Guru whether God would be willing to take care of his family (by his family he
meant his parents) ... as there was none to look after them. Ramakrishna Paramhansa who knew the answer ... kept
quiet. When Swami Vivekananda insisted upon an answer ... Ramakrishna Paramhansa guided him to Ma Kali (who was
also worshiped by Swami Ramakrishna Paramhansa).
When Swami Vivekananda approached the temple of Ma Kali ... he would
become so engrossed in thoughts that were Spiritual in nature that he almost forgot asking the Ma for
material benefits for his parents. He returned to his Guru Ramakrishna Paramhansa who inquired of him whether
Ma has blessed him with all his wants. Swami Vivekananda hesitatingly stated that the moment he entered the
precincts of the temple he forgot what he had come for. Ramakrishna Paramhansa redirected him to go again and
ask of Ma Kali for the material comforts for his parents. He went again and the moment he entered the temple
the same happening repeated. When Swami Vivekananda returned after his third visit with no return in hand ...
he realized his folly.
How could he ... a puny human being ask of Ma Kali ... for material
comforts for his parents ... when it was but possible for Ma Kali to bless him with a gift of Self
Realization in the present life ... to become free of the cycle of manifestations ... to reach the 8.4
millionth manifestation ... should be something what he should ask for! What value is of the material
comforts he is asking for! What is the value of life of 70 to 80 years compared to the total life cycle of
atman the soul within of 96.4 million years?
Swami Vivekananda immediately understood the complete truth ... he never
repeated the mistake. Instead he took a commitment from his master Ramakrishna Paramhansa that he shall bless
his parents so that the basic needs of the family ... his parents shall always be taken care of by the grace
of God ... he left the care of his parents in the hands of his Guru Ramakrishna Paramhansa. and only after
Swami Ramakrishna Paramhansa said yes, did Swami Vivekananda became a disciplined disciple of Ramakrishna
Paramhansa. and it is a fact of life that the parents of Swami Vivekananda never were short of the basic
needs in life.
May God bless you!
