Right from Lord Krishna, Mahavira, Gautama Buddha even Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed, all enlightened souls existed before us through their literature. Yet, we seek spiritual wisdom elsewhere. In the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharshi Ramana successfully gained enlightenment.
If we indulged in anything relating to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa or Maharshi Ramana, the need to indulge even in Bhagavad Gita would not arise.
Anything relating to spirituality even spiritual experiences can be understood only by indulgence in contemplation (chintan). There was no shortcut method to indulge in spirituality. I have come across people who had read Bhagavad Gita many times but without any success. If we seriously desire gaining from spiritual experiences of enlightened ones we must resort to contemplation (chintan in Hinduism).
After all spirituality was all about removing dross impurities within our soul atman! It also meant dissolving queries existing within us from beginning of life. If we succeed reaching state of no queries within, we would immediately reach state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi (when not a single thought entered our brain uninvoked).
Reaching state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and simultaneously practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation, human beings succeed in full awakening of kundalini spirit, the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of spine.
Full awakening of kundalini results in 100% activation of brain. Normal human beings used their brain 1 to 2%. Enlightened ones used their brain 100%. Full activation of brain means becoming an enlightened one that very moment.
Full activation of brain becomes possible by negation of queries within and for this we have to indulge in contemplation (chintan) all the time. Only then jnana wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita can remove darkness of ignorance forever.
In my pursuit of god from six years of age I stopped going to temples, churches and mosques when about 6 1/2 years of age.
When going to temples with my mother on religious occasions I enquired from her who was god. She said we are going to temple for that purpose. I asked her will I see and meet God in the Temple, she was affirmative. On reaching the temple I searched for God behind every idol. When I could not locate one I enquired of my mother that I did not find God in the Temple. This happened on the return journey back from temple to home. This time she was mum.
Then one day I bluntly say to her either, show me God or I shall stop going to temple henceforth. Still she did not reply. And started my serious pursuit of God! Based on religious stories doing rounds in the house I realized that Lord Krishna was a highly successful spiritual person.
After returning from school every single day I went in search of Lord Krishna in the nearby fields. I was looking for a guy with flute in hand and cows grazing nearby. For many days this routine continued and I did not find anyone by this description.
A village elderly saw me coming again and again. He knew my family well. One day he enquired of me what I was searching for. When I told him Lord Krishna, he started laughing and told me that Lord Krishna existed thousands of years before. Without saying anything further I returned.
I enquired of Lord Krishna in the family and was again told that he, existed many millennia before. But elderly people in the family told me that to find God we must know everything Lord Krishna said. As sermon of Bhagavad Gita was a dictate of Lord Krishna, I wanted to indulge in Bhagavad Gita.
At that young age between 8 to 9 years, not knowing anything about Sanskrit I could not indulge in teachings of Bhagavad Gita. As my faith in God Almighty was absolute, I still continued pursuing Lord Krishna and stories about him. I subsequently came to know that Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharshi Ramana both succeeded in reaching god.
This information was enough for me. I started my indulgence in teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharshi Ramana. I realized from within that enlightened souls like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha even Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed existed no more physically but I could reach them through their teachings. And hence started my indulgence in teachings of spirituality contained in writings of all these enlightened souls!
Do not know how I developed indulgence in contemplation (chintan) from six years of age. The more I indulged in thoughts of God Almighty, more queries arose within me. I started spending my spare time in company of elders. Their religious stories fascinated me but whenever I asked a question from any of the elders, the answers were not forthcoming.
No matter how best I tried, no elder in the family or outside replied to my queries. The result I became a total introvert. I started contemplating (indulging in chintan) practically all the time. As my spiritual journey within progressed I could realize the answers to my queries on my own. Finally I realized the need for a spiritual master in the spiritual journey of life was not necessary.
As spiritual journey is always progressed internally via chintan (contemplation), there was little a so-called religious teacher could do.
Indulging in chintan (contemplation) I finally succeeded in eradicating my ego forever. This helped me overpower five senses and mind. All queries within started dissolving slowly! I finally reached the state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi (absolute nothingness) when not a single thought entered our brain uninvoked.
Practice of absolute celibacy for minimum 12 years is necessitated for full awakening of kundalini energy. I took 14 years. In the wee hours of third of August 1993 when I had Sakshat Darshan of God Almighty for above two hours, I realized my kundalini had awakened fully absolutely unknown to me. This I came to know from the writing, dictation Brahman (God Almighty) gave to me.
From six years of age when I started my spiritual pursuit I took almost 31 years to reach god. Having become a pure soul atman, nowhere else to go moment I leave my mortal frame I shall attain moksha salvation.
The most major issue of spiritual path is indulgence in chintan (contemplation) that people world over voided. As there was no other path to god mastering delicate art of contemplation is an absolute must. Only then we could understand gist of Bhagavad Gita and also Upanishads (independent spiritual treatises).
