How To Make The Day Memorable?

Image
Well this is not a tutorial instead a question that I want to ask you on the day of completion of 2 years of service of Religion2God. Religion2God aims to lead to the Highest (the God) which is symbolized by the ladder in its logo.

Recently someone asked me that how can I claim that He is the Highest. Actually, it is not my sole claim that He is the Highest but also the conclusion of the experiences of renowned saints of past. Apart from this highly valued scriptures also declare the same. Above all the God Himself explains to us the same out of affection.

Now another question that may emerge in your mind is that how can you believe on a book. I agree that your doubt is reasonable if I ask you to believe on all the books that are published every day but this is not about ordinary literary works but about well acclaimed standard texts.

In every branch of science there are some standard books that you need to follow for better understanding. You need to take those texts as true because…

How to Investigate Your Spiritual Essence?

Investigating our spiritual essence is the most important work we have because with the understanding of our spiritual nature we are no more bullied by the glamour of the world. The mind comes totally under our control and we become able to do whatever is required all in proper fashion.

Here I present before you few activities that can help you discover your spiritual reality. If you don’t eat, you will never know its taste. So, it’s important to practice them in order to know how they work. Even if you don’t believe that there is anything called spiritual, just give these things a sincere try for few months and I am damn sure you will be changed.

Just sit in a quiet and clean place in the most comfortable posture keeping your backbone straight and eyes gently closed. That’s it. Practice this thrice a day for at least 10 minutes during each sitting.Be Peaceful: Maintaining peace of min…

What Exists And What Not?

Image
Existence has been a very widely discussed topic from times immemorial. It is because, our understanding of what exists and what not helps us to understand that what our actions and efforts should be directed towards. If we long for something that never actually existed, we are sure to land among despair. Only one whose efforts are oriented towards the true existence is worthy of achieving peace and happiness.

A child starts crying loud if it’s lovely necklace, which it has got from somewhere and now uses it for its childish game, gets separated into beads. It assumes the necklace as an independent existence. It doesn't know that those small beads are the one that combine to make up its lovely toy. Then its parent again fixes it and the child get surprised and happy again to get back its cradle. The parent doesn't get worried about breaking of the thread, because he sees those beads as the core of the existence of the necklace.

The notion is that the parent sees beads as the …

Be a witness and get free from all the miseries due to attachments with actions.What looks impossible to you today will be easy for you when you will have a certain state.All your miseries are due to your myth of being the body and the mind.Don't get lost in the city of mysteries. Just try to solve your favorite one and all other will also be solved automatically.Always keep the highest ideal before yourself without any allowances then only you can progress.You already know everything required, now you just need to follow what you already know.Change is the law of nature. But, what kind of change it should be is up to you.Mistakes are done by all, but those who can recognize their mistakes can only get rid of them.You are not omnipotent. Dispose your false …

Path To Success

Image
To achieve anything one has to devote him/her self completely to that work. Without devotion nothing can be achieved. In case of spirituality, to experience the Lord, one has to continuously think of Him, to experience bliss; one has to be continuously happy. To experience nothingness, one has to be thoughtless continuously. To experience peace, one has to be calm always. Only a short period of meditation cannot help without development of the habit of maintenance of the meditative mood always.

Quest Part 4

Q31: Why do we get involved in wrong activities even after knowing that it should be avoided? What does force us to do so?

A31: It is the temptation due to ignorance. Most of the ill things look charming at first and their ill effects are observed later. Similarly, good things appear dull at first and their benefits appear after a period.

Q32: How are impressions harmful to us?

A32: We mostly work according to our impressions alone. We, the real Self, do not play any active role in it. These impressions can be understood as a wall which doesn't allow soul to establish connection with the intellect. In case we become free of impressions, our intellect will be illuminated by the knowledge of soul.

Q33: How can one get rid of impressions and establish connection between soul and intellect?

A33: When we perform our assigned work, and follow the path of righteousness to perform our duties alone, no more impressions are created and we gradually become free from them.

Q34: It is very hard t…

Quest Part 3

Q21: Does the God exist everywhere?

A21: Yes.

Q22: How can we say this? To assume and to be are two different things. People may believe but how is this possible?

A22: We haven't created anything in this world completely. Creation must contain some part of the creator. Therefore we can say that air, water, fire, land, sky or anything created using these bears the mark of God.

Q23: Can a person see beyond time frames?

A23: Yes, the God knows everything. And when somebody unifies himself with the God, he too gains the ability to see beyond time frames.

Q24: What is the form of God?

A24: In whatever form you want to see.

Q25: It is said that the God is in you. Don't search Him outside. What does this statement mean? Introspection helps to understand your true self, to understand your immense potential. But the God is in me. It's a bit confusing!

A25: The life element inside you, works due to the presence of God Himself. Meditate. Recognise your true identity. You are not this bod…

Quest Part 2

Q11: What is His source? Everything in this planet or in this universe has a reason. There must be one for God too.

A11: God is the Source of all sources. There is no source of Him. Everything needs a firm base to exist. God serves as the foundation of the whole cosmos. God is Perfect. He holds all the attributes of this world, yet He is very different from everything. Therefore it is not necessary that there should be a source of Him. He emerges from Himself and dissolves back into His own Self.

Q12: Even if one doesn't believe on the God, he does know that the God symbolizes truth and goodness. What is the symbol of evil?

A12: Ignorance symbolizes evil.

Q13: Where does evil take us to?

A13: Evil takes us to destruction.

Q14: What is the goal of life? There must be one.

A14: Aim of life is purification.

Q15: I can't understand your words, as brain needs reasons to accept. I do not understand the meaning of God.

A15: Spirituality is not understood by brain but by experiences. The …

Quest Part 1

Quest is the series of posts that has been derived from discussions with my friends through facebook chat. They have asked a wide range of questions comprising different aspects of spirituality. I decided to post them on the blog for public reference as I expect these questions to be very common to every spiritual aspirant. I hope you will be greatly benefited from this series of posts. I thank my dear friends for putting his questions and understanding innocently before me.


Q1: Spirituality is a fathomless ocean. Has anybody ever reached its zenith?

A1: Spirituality ends in God-realization. Many have reached this state in past.

Q2: What is the importance of spirituality in life?

A2: It is hard to explain, what the importance of this topic is. But, I can say that after encountering with it, I felt it as the most important thing to know. This is complete knowledge. Everything is in it. Everything is from it.

Q3: Can we see God by exactly following them (persons who have realized God in pa…

Emotions

Image
My sister always says that I lack emotions. But, do you think it is possible? Even animals do not lack it. They show love, affection and care towards their offspring. They show a kind of unity at difficult times. Your pet always remains loyal to you once it decides to be so.

So, what is it that allows her to say so? It is the outcome of two things. First is the control over my emotions that I have built in last few years and the second is lack of her observational power. One can easily understand the emotional status of a person by noticing his/her decisions and daily minute activities. But everybody cannot bear same level of alertness and observational and concluding abilities. So, I shall not write about that here but I would like to talk about emotional control.

It is not always required to climb high onto the cliff of a mountain to announce what you think. One must develop a good control over his/her emotions in order to act wisely in different situations as emotions can both be …

Meditation, A to Z Again

Image
Out of numerous spiritual practices namely celibacy, renunciation etc., meditation due to its simplicity and health related benefits, has always been a topic of discussion even among non-spiritualists. Let’s dive into the depths of it with a rational approach for its significance and its benefits.

Meditation as generally explained in dictionaries means brooding and deep thinking. But meditation is completely different from it. Instead of continuous thinking of a certain subject, meditation comprises of observing the subject only. Meditation is a continued state of concentration of mental rays on a particular subject. So, for proper meditation one must develop enough and prolonged concentration. But this doesn’t mean that those who do not have good concentration cannot attempt meditation. They too can meditate by continued practice. Their primary effort for meditation helps them to develop good concentration which acts as the foundation for meditation.

Meditation helps us to expand ou…
