MOKSHA FOR ADI SHANKARACHARYA AT KEDARNATH , FINAL END OF REBIRTHS AND REINCARNATIONS AFTER NIRVANA , TURIYA , VIDEHA MUKTI BURIAL FOR MAHARISHI RAMANA THE LIBERATED SOUL – CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL
Moksha in Hindusim is given through the grace of god alone and only for those who deserve it.
After death this deserving soul is liberated from the endless cycle of births and rebirths.
The body of the “realized man” or Jivan Mukt continues to exist until his karmas and prarabdhas ( greater responsibility ) has worked itself out, and then his mortal coil falls away on his own free will , and he attains Moksha.
Adi Shankaracharya attained Moksha at the age of 32 at Kedarnath temple , after he set up the four Hindu Mutts at Sringeri, Dwarka, Puri and Badrinath for each of the four Vedas. He also wrote a treatise on the Advaita form of Hindusim, before he attained Moksha.

RAMANA MAHARSHI OF ARUNACHALA , THE LAST OF THE SEERS VADAKAYIL
You cannot be deemed a Jivanmukta unless you have the noble qualities for it.
Such people have sterling virtues like conscience, lack of ego, gratitude , lack of desires- selfishness- greed- jealousy- anger- and fear, unlimited compassion, respect for universal laws, raised consciousness and humility ( which yours truly does NOT have though I hold a rare Moksha Jatakam ).
He who is the same in honour and disgrace and the same to friends and foes, who has given up all undertakings, he is said to having gone beyond all modes. (Bhagavat Gita 14, 22-25.).
A Jivanmukta has reached the imperishable Turiya state. It means “consciousness minus thinking” . It represents supreme consciousness free from material influence . . In Turiya there is the absolute awareness .
It is the experience of ultimate reality and truth. In Turiya, the self does not think, feel, or do, but rather observes thought, emotion, and action capable of truly understanding the totality of the universe.
Turiya has no limits and no endpoint. It is infinitely transcendent, which means its potential is forever expanding. You are now a unique individual and you are a vital part of a larger universal life force that transcends everything on earth..
Reality and truth become more clearly defined, allowing you to perceive that which lies above, below, and beyond the human experience.
This utterly quiet, peaceful and blissful state is the ultimate aim of all spiritual activity this highest state is not affected by Maya The Waker, The Dreamer, The Deep Sleeper and The Observer. You experience detachment and joy . Turiya Consciousness is the ultimate goal of spirituality for here you know what freedom is all about.
Turiya is regarded as synonymous with videhamukti, liberation without a body A saint is a very ordinary guy.. A sage is the extraordinary being. A sage does not dream, because he has no polarity. He’s just a witness.
OM is the four states of consciousness, as per Patanjali Yoga.
OM is the waking state or jagrat. Beta brain wave
OM is the dreaming state or svapna. REM sleep state
OM is the deep sleep state or sushupti. (dream-less deep sleep state , the delta brain wave)
Om is the transcendental state or turiya. (beyond all the states) , the fourth has been called nirvana.
Four stages: consciousness plus thinking is waking, consciousness minus thinking is turiya, unconsciousness plus thinking is dreaming, unconsciousness minus thinking is sleep.
We ordinary people lack contact with our fourth state of consciousness, and so we fail to live up to our potential as human beings. Turiya yoga emphasizes a complete freedom, rejecting force and power, and instead embracing the ideal of a universal harmony.
It is not considered a state in Vedic Indian texts, rather it is an absence of states (dualistic or otherwise), and in Turiya; the practitioner is able to transcend into advaitya-- Into universal oneness.
In Hindusim your physical body is just like clothes or a snake skin. On death you just change your body to another one.
A Jivanmukta is a sage who is liberated from bondage even while living with a body. . He has delight in the Self, he sports in the Self, he has company with the Self, he has bliss in the Self. He is autonomous. He has unlimited freedom.
The Jivanmukta does not feel the necessity for abiding by what brings pleasure to the physical body. The palm of the hand is his bowl, the earth is his bed, the sky is his clothing.
He has reached the climax of perfection and the whole universe is a part of his body. The forces of the universe are his friends, not his enemies .
The sage does not care for public criticism. He keeps a cool mind even when he is abused or assaulted.
In Hindusim your physical body is just like clothes or a snake skin. On death you just change your body to another one, which need NOT be human.
Now let me digress , and tell you a few things in greater detail—about virtues or lack of it. When God decides to give you moksha it is NOT on mere whims. He keeps a tally.
Gratitude is the parent of all other human virtues. Grateful people have memories stored inside their hearts. Gratitude is the most beautiful and fragrant flower, in the garden of your soul. An ungrateful guy has only one vice, the rest of all his vices and crimes can pass off as virtues. Greed's worst and darkest point is ingratitude.
We talk about forgiveness to be happy. Well i will put it in another way. The only time you should get even is with a person who helped you when you were in deep trouble, and you ass was on the line--without any expectation of reciprocity.
Even concealing a kindness received is ingratitude. Conveniently forgetting it is even a greater sin. It was indeed a fine poet who wrote" Blow, blow, thou winter wind, and chill my bones- thou art not so unkind as man's ingratitude"
Christianity with all its inquisitions and materialism, has never really addressed the DHARMA of listening to that inner voice, which comes as a sudden spark of divinity.
When you convert people from other religions with missionaries aggressively harvesting souls by shoving sops down hapless throats, conscience takes a back seat. Fanaticism has never slept in Christianity , it has never been stopped by conscience nor has it ever pressed conscience into its service.
Nowadays you find the John Galt pledge being aggressively pursued on the Internet, with some Indian Hindu names too in the list. I guess these are the ungrateful types who throw away their aged parents from their homes. An man with conscience can never be ungrateful. So, what is this pledge?
The John fu#kin' Galt Pledge--
"I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
“I take this pledge as a personal Declaration of Independence. As a sovereign individual, I assert the exclusive right to my life, my liberty and my property, as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. As government is properly instituted to protect my rights, I oppose, and declare as unconstitutional, all actions taken by government that violate the very rights it is charged with defending. I support a return to the principle of individualism upon which this country was founded. And rejecting any initiation of the use of force as being wholly inappropriate, I support a society based strictly upon voluntary association and free trade among its people”.
ATTABOYS! and ATTAGIRLS!!
Ayn Rand who wrote ATLAS SHRUGGED , who has John Galt as the capitalist hero, was a mistress of Rothschild.
Well if your parents did NOT feed you as a baby you would NOT be around, buddy. Now that you are big and strong you will abandon your old vulnerable parents in an old age home. One day you will be in the same boat—as your own children will take the John Galt pledge.
When you have a bigot in funny robes with a curved staff holding a hot line between you and your god, then I suggest you must fear virtue more than vice. Because the, its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience.
The Catholic Church and the Koran has warned that "rejection of the authority and gospel teaching...can be at the source of errors in judgment in moral conduct"—based on one single book?
When Christianity and Islam says that theirs is the only true path which other religions have missed , what it is all about?
In Hinduism it is your own conscience, (which arose out of awakened consciousness ) which connects you to the greater metaphysical unity.
In the literary traditions of the Upanishads, Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita, conscience is the label given to attributes composing knowledge about virtues and vices but also good and evil, that a soul acquires from the completion of acts and consequent accretion of karma over many lifetimes.
The awareness of vice and virtue is inherent in the soul, Gratitude is inherent and woven into Hinduism , which makes this religion noble. Hinduism does not allow you to breach a trust.
Sanatana as “eternal moral order” encourages Hindus to seek moral truth wherever it might be found, each individual must realize this truth through his or her own systematic effort. Sanatana means " that which holds eternal Vedic knowledge"-- encompassing everything from microcosm to macrocosm.
Dharma means " righteousness". Dharma leads to eternal bliss, both in this world and the next. It is your sole and soul companion after death. Human acts without conscience which creates conflict is called Adharma.
Dharma leads you on the path of self realisation. Dharma includes adhara or regulation of daily life as per your conscience and written Vedic laws. You conscience is that spark of celestial fire. God resides in your DNA.
Never do anything against conscience even if the state , your society or your religion demands it. In Hinduism you sin, if you go against your conscience.
A computer does NOT have a conscience. This is why Modern Economics which is hijacked by empirical formulas or Quadratic Equations , which can be tweaked to suit a selfish Central banker, has wreaked terrible damage to society.
A man of conscience does NOT jump into the bandwagon, rather he will stand a fight all alone, against the howling mob.
A government cannot have a conscience. Yes, they can have a policy book. How many Policy statements by the topmost MD or President allows you to exercise your conscience?
My standing orders at sea to my sailors always exhorted them to use their conscience.
How many judges in a court of law exercise their conscience or even listen to the voice of conscience-- and these guys say they take care of humanity and society, right? There can be no accuser as powerful as your own conscience.
Have you ever seen a lawyer with conscience? Nowadays successful hot-shot lawyers , who own Rolls Royce cars and yachts use " where does this manual say when to have breakfast?" type CHICANERY to sway the judge and jury, whose conscience is in hibernation, due to poor perception and consciousness..
Today if you engage a lawyer, the only thing which is 100% sure ( like death ) is the expense.
I would have loved to be a criminal lawyer—but then I would have to shackled my conscience. I do know that I am smart enough I can screw anybody in an argument or a debate.
At sea as a leader I have given top priority to courage of convictions of my Junior Officers , and in my standing orders which overrides company policy, as Captain’s authority, I exhort them to use it. I assure them that they will NOT be dismissed from service if I am convinced of evoking natural law and natural justice.
There is indeed a higher court than courts of justice or courts of honour, and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts. Have you ever noticed that it is your conscience which tell you, enough is enough.
Any person of honor chooses rather to lose his honor than to lose his conscience. Nobel peace prize winners striking and killing unarmed civilians with drones to preserve their way of life, talk about “this years fashion in conscience” in Presidential debates.
And they go around with their work happily , with an audience clapping and cheering them on. What irony! Once your conscience, which is the window to your spirit, is offended it shows on your face --as it is good bye tranquil mind.
Such evil people mistake short memory for a clear conscience. Conscience is your inner antenna. Human dignity requires an upright conscience.
Deep within his conscience every man discovers a celestial law which he has not laid upon himself, even society or his upbringing -- which he must obey. It is his most secret core, and his sanctuary, where he is alone with God, to have a silent and short dialogue .
To youngsters who are about to take up a career , I will tell them this—“Never take up a job in which you cannot apply your own conscience” This is in case you want to happy , when your work is a continuous festival of joy. Then you can have a face without lines , like yours truly- at the age of 57.
A comfortable house and wealth is a great source of happiness. It ranks only after good health which springs out of happiness anchored by good conscience. A guilty conscience needs no accuser. There is pillow as hard as a guilty conscience. Conscience is what makes you behave well behind closed doors or when nobody is looking...
Conscience an aspect of extended consciousness beyond survival-related dispositions . Conscience is a gift of crisis--- It tells you the right thing to do when you don't have time to figure it all out.
Conscience thinks in a flash, in terms of metaphor, feelings, pictures, and the spatial whole and doesn't fit neatly into the cause-and-effect model. Your conscience will not force you to do things that are truly wrong for yourself or other people in contradiction with the laws of the universe.
We cannot command our conscience to use it at will. It just surfaces spontaneously when certain circumstances are present—it suddenly appears as a feeling.
Conscience extrapolates larger truths . Use it as a guide always, never ignore it. If you do NOT have a conscience you cannot attain moksha , no matter whether you pray to God -- 5 times a day on your knees or 50.
We all know what the Irish Catholics did to Savita , right?
Just because it is written “NO SWIMMING ON SUNDAYS “— they will NOT rescue a Hindu child drowning on Sunday , and ignore the cries for help. These immoral people will happily watch the child drown and be happy about it.

SAVITA HALAPPANAVAR , THE MURDER OF THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH VADAKAYIL
Hope their Lord will give them salvation.
Now let me talk about ego.
The ego thrives on others and lives on attention . Human ego demands personal recognition and wastes energy in resentment if it does not get enough. The underlying emotion for the ego is fear, the fear of being a nobody.
The chatter of the ego continuously disrupts the natural state of well being. Stress is from within the mind , not by external threat. Ego creates suffering without recognising it.
It’s hard to get into the boardrooms and MD offices of some organizations because the egos of the leaders take up way too much space. Only bootlickers and hand kissers are allowed into their inner sanctum. They recruit yes-men instead of capable men.
The waitress turned empress has surrounded herself with a desh drohi coterie. Ego tries to enlarge and strengthen by forming gangs and posses. Here the ego has simply shifted from the personal to the collective.
Their ego makes them take everything personally.
They mistake a short memory for a clear conscience and are miserabe within. They are unable to listen to another person's view without feeling threatened. They leave debris and destruction wherever they go.
They are very eager to see their picture in newspapers. Yesterday the Italian Queen Bee “flagged off a truck” in great style ,( like how Nero flagged off the games in Rome) -- with relief supplies to Uttarakhand where there is a huge tragedy.
Above: Getting personal mileage out of gruesome human tragedy -- the worst human trait-- see Sonia Gandhi , Rahul Gandhi and Sheila Dixit .
Their indifference arises due to ego. Their ego cannot distinguish between a situation and their interpretation and reaction to that situation. Cooperation is alien to ego except when there is a secondary motive.
The ego becomes the grit in the system that gets in the way of authentic meaningful communication. Their self-talk is the mouthpiece of ego, their inflated, overbearing egos create rules for rules’ sake.
They complicate procedures , squash good ideas and keep good people down. Their ego makes them unwilling to admit that they know zilch about a subject in a meeting—the equivalent of the ear trying to tell what it saw and tasted and smelt, in a bulldozing manner.
They brood endlessly on their petty grievances, never held before them any vision that might have lifted them out of themselves. They substitute their thinking capabilities with their loud cynical talking capabilities.
Have you ever heard the Queen Bee’s immoral spokesmen on TV , calling people who have tried to help at Kedarnath, as Rambo ?
Compulsive liars are driven by egos feelings of insufficiency.. Ego will force them to make life difficult for others—for they feel the need to put people in their place or get into one-upmanship games.
Such wretched people would give only conditional love to a small child or a kitten. They would flag off the food to a starving kitten, with TV cameras running.
Ego confuses opinions with facts . Every ego is a master of selective perception and distorted interpretation. Ego likes to judge and be right. To the ego the present moment NOW hardly exists and is always concerned with keeping the past alive. Ego looks at the present with jaundiced eyes of the past.
When people argue they will act as if they are fighting for survival and there is a imminent need to win at all costs. Such is the self delusion caused by ego. The ego thrives on reactivity.
To be free of ego all you need to do is to be aware of your thoughts and emotions as they happen. Awareness and ego cannot coexist. It is difficult to see one's own ego. There is a fine line between pride and arrogance, that line is called EGO.
The danger zone is when you start thinking that your accomplishments earn you the right to be condescending, obnoxious and abusive. Since leadership is of spirit, the ego powered men can never be good leaders--they can never rise over the post of a mangy manager.
It is the nature of the right brain lobe, to be accepting and free of judgements. Ego makes a donkey think that he is THE champion race horse.— or an ex-waitress to think that she is an empress of the first King on Earth’s lineage.
Jealousy has the power to destroy. There is no greater punishment than the primal emotion of jealousy, for it is the most potent cause of unhappiness. Jealousy causes negative feelings and misery which corrode your innards like rust to iron.
When you get jealous you drink poison and wait for the other person to die- TEE HEEEE!.
When you are jealous you count the other fellow's blessings instead of your own, and lose your peace of mind—rather burn up inside.. It is in the character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered. The sure mark of one born with noble qualities, is being born without envy. Of the seven deadly sins, only envy aint no fun at all.
The surest route to breeding jealousy is to compare In Hinduism, envy is a disastrous emotion. Hinduism maintains that anything which causes the mind to lose balance with itself , leads to misery. Envy cannot coexist with truth and spiritual wisdom.
One who does not envy but is a compassionate friend to all ... such a devotee is very dear to Me. - Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 12, Verse 15. 4000 BC
Moksha is not an achievement, therefore there is no competition. It is liberation from , the cycle of death and rebirth. Your soul achieves its pure self. After liberation or nirvana or moksha there is no rebirth.
There are no marks and grading. You get Moksha or you don’t, depending on what you are worth.
Moksha is spiritual realization.
The attainment of moksha is EXTREMELY rare and countless reincarnations are required for a person to reach this state of spiritual perfection.
The Hlndu Dharma tells that man does not live by bread alone, nor by his work, bank balance, slimy popularity , ambition or power or relations to external nature. He lives or must live by his life of spirit.
Moksha is self-emancipation. The fulfillment of the spirit in us in the heart of the eternal. This is what gives ultimate satisfaction and all other activities are directed to the realization of this end. It is attained by realization of our true identity.
The Upanishads established moksha as the ultimate goal of all Hindu religious and spiritual activity. Moksha is the fulfillment of life's purpose. Life ends on this earth plane when you attain Moksha or liberation from birth and death.
You are liberated from littleness into vastness, from bondage to boundless bliss. . The conquest of ignorance, ego, attachment, and impulse brings about liberation (moksha) for the individual. The one who is a slave to impulses and tendencies (vasanas) is devoid of wisdom.
Without jnana, there can be no moksha. Jnana is always revealed in spontaneous utterances.
When the sensual desires are blowing strong, the jnana-lamp cannot burn. You cannot get jnana by shaking your a$$ in a discotheque and watching sugar daddy’s Sunny Leone in blue movies.
Yoga destroys destroys all impulses and urges towards the sensual world. Yoga and jnana are like oil and flame. The oil is yoga and jnana is the illumining flame of the lamp. Even if at the last moment of his life one is able to realize this jnana , he is certain to be liberated from the cycle of birth and death.
This is why almost all atheists cry out to god just before they die. This is the time hypocrisy goes for a toss. Moksha does NOT make your soul extinct. It just means that it is the final end of anymore earthly sojourns for your soul.
So what happens to your soul after moksha?

RIP IMPOSSIBLE WITH BURIAL VADAKAYIL
Moksha means liberation. A Jivanmukti is a living liberated soul—an example of which is Adi Shankaracharya or Maharishi Ramana. Liberation, while living, is called Jivanmukti and those who have attained it are called Jivanmuktas.
Jivanmukta is one who is devoid of likes/dislikes, sorrow/elation and whose intellect is divine.”-Mahopanishad (2/57)
A jIvanmukta is one who does not see anything separate from the Self. The Realized Man has transcended all destiny and is bound neither by the body nor by its destiny. His actions are cosmic movements and not the instincts of the sense of egoism.
Ramana lived permanently and peacefully in Sahaja Samadhi. As Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi himself had mentioned in his later days, "his ego and individual identity had become like a burnt rope, it was useless to tie onto anything".
He had unbound compassion for anything living. The outside world could not produce any change in his Self, as the rivers flowing into the ocean cannot disturb its immeasurable and bottomless waters. The great ethical virtues, such as humility, unselfishness, purity, kindness, kinship, lack of ego and greed all adorned him like shining jewels. He did not actively seek them- they clung to him.
Carl Jung hails Sri Ramana as ‘a true son of the Indian earth’ and adds that his life and teachings carry a warning message not only to Indians, but to all humanity in the modern age when ‘it threatens to lose itself in the chaos of its unconsciousness and lack of self-control. He is genuine and, in addition to that, something quite phenomenal. In India he is the whitest spot in a white space’
Like I said before , death occurs to the physical body only and not to the Atman ( soul ). The scriptures tell us that the energy body of Atman is ‘na jAyate’ (never born), ‘na mriyate’ (never dies).
A jivan mukta does not get delighted by pleasures. He has got nothing to obtain or avoid. He does NOT feel helpless or dejected. He does NOT expect any publicity , reward or return . . Whatever he does is righteous, moral and ideal.
He has no tussle between the body and the spirit. His external actions are just like those of the ignorant worldly man. But the greatest difference lies between their minds, the desires and Vasanas. The one does not know what is desire and the other is immersed in desires.
For the liberated sage there is no delusion for he sees oneness everywhere. He is not affected by either what he has done or what he has not done. But he knows his prabdhas. He is free from all the modifications of the mind. His heart is pure like the Himalayan snow crystal. .
An ordinary mortal( like you and me) cannot love and serve those who hate him, who beat him and who abuse him always. The liberated sage, the prince of ascetics has transcendental love. He does not exert to acquire any object that is limited in space and time. He knows that all things of great value are free. His sense of want has been annihilated once and for all by the ineffable experience of Self-realization.
If you fail to see God in the present life, then after death you must take on another body; if you see God, then you will break free from the cycle of birth and death. God can be seen, like the reflection in a mirror, in a pure heart.
When the senses are calm and the mind is motionless, then your heart is pure; you have reached the highest state of consciousness, in which you are unified with God. If this state of consciousness is firm and secure, so it can never be bro ken, then you are free.
No one can find out whether a Jivanmukta is a learned one or is ignorant, whether he is virtuous or vicious. . When all the desires and knots that are lodged in the heart are cast off, then the mortal becomes Jivan Mukta. Such people are the veritable Emperors of the universe.
Thereare 7 Seven stages of Jivanmukta--
In the first stage one desires to know Brahman.
In the second, he starts enquiry .
In the third he knows Brahman indirectly.
These three are considered to be in the waking state of Jivanmukta.
In the fourth stage, he realizes Brahman directly and the world appears to him as a dream. In this state he is called Brahmavit, and this state is considered to be like dream state.
Gradually the Jivanmukta enters into the fifth stage where he is absorbed in Nirvikalpasamadhi. In this state he is called Brahmavidvara. Now and then he comes out of the Samadhi either out of his own will or on request. This is like the stage like Sushupti where he is awake while asleep and asleep while awake, and is called a Brahmavidvariyan.
The next is the final stage where he internally renounces all actions and does not desire anything for himself. His inner eye is open, even though he may perceive all things with his external eyes and perform all normal activities. This stage is called Turiya State in which he is known as Brahmavidvarishtha.
He comes out of this stage of his own will to grace the world. He is full of bliss and happiness, and therefore appears to be an ordinary man; but in reality, he is free from all delusions.
A person who has progressively attained these higher stages of consciousness, works for salvation of the entire creation.
Unlike other world religions that teach that the path to salvation is narrow, Hinduism allows for a multiplicity of ways to attain moksha depending on the personalities, tastes, and temperaments of its different devotees.
In general, four different spiritual paths are widely accepted in Hinduism.
They are the ways of selfless work (Karma Yoga), of self-dissolving love (Bhakti Yoga), of absolute discernment (Jnana Yoga), and of raised Kundalini meditative immersion (Raja Yoga). The paths are not generally seen as mutually exclusive but complimentary.:
Karma marga allows an ethical person who uses his conscience and integrity , to remain within society instead of becoming a renunciation, while also cultivating qualities important in the achievement of salvation. In this path, one acts for the good of society while pursuing spiritual progress and adhering to standards of correct action.
Karma Yoga is the path of 'action', of putting in 100 percent effort, without being attached to the outcome.
Karma Yoga is the path of 'action', of putting in 100 percent effort, without being attached to the outcome.
“Thy right is to work only, but never with its fruits; let not the fruits of action be thy motive, nor let thy attachment be to inaction. As the ignorant men act from attachment to action, so should the wise act without attachment, wishing the welfare of the world.”~ The Bhagavad Gita
Karma yoga can be applied to everything you do: from from the most trivial, ordinary tasks to greater, more challenging works. When action is performed selflessly, with full focus and attention, it brings fulfillment and freedom. Acting without being attached to the fruits of one's deeds – this alone can lead to union with the Self, which is the goal of yoga....
Karma is a crucial Hindu concept. According to the doctrine of karma, our present condition in life is the consequence of the actions of our previous lives. The choices we have made in the past directly affect our condition in this life, and the choices we make today and thereafter will have consequences for our future lives in samsara.
Jnana marga is known as the path of wisdom, and places much emphasis on study and pursuit of knowledge. This includes the study of philosophy that address spirituality and the laws of the universe. In this path, self-realization (Atma siddhi/ Atmavidya) is the key to obtaining moksha. And the core of this knowledge is 'Tat tvam asi'. 'you are indeed the Self' .
"Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny."
To stuff one's mouth with food is not the same as eating. One should attain a state when all organs of perception and action work from knowledge. Wisdom (jnana) does not mean intellectual acumen or dialectical power. Jnana is realjzed experience. If we have true insight, right action will take care of itself.
Truth and conscience cannot but act rightly. The path of knowledge is the rnost difficult of the four paths because the capacity to see everything in its essence or perception setting aside the gross covering it is not a gift given by god to all human beings.
To attain Jnana, you must have one-pointedness of mind (Ekagrata). Ekagrata comes through Upasana. Upasana comes through purity of heart (Chitta Suddhi). Chitta Suddhi comes through Nishkamya Karma Yoga. To do Nishkamya Karma, you must have controlled the Indriyas. The Indriyas can be controlled through Viveka and Vairagya.
Bhakti marga, or devotion, is the most common path in Hinduism today. Bhakti involves cultivating a very personal connection to the divine through a conduit, found in the form of a deity. Bhakti typically involves intense devotional worship of a chosen deity, and the expression of single-minded love.
Some of the most popular deities in Hinduism include Shiva, Vishnu, Krishna, Ganesha, Kali or Bhagawati Devi (the Mother Goddess). The way of devotion is the most popular one. Sinners as well as saints, ignorant as well as learned, dimwits as well as wise find it too dang easy.
Prayer and petition. fasting and sacrifice, communion and self-examination, all are included in the life of devotion.

Karma refers to the totality of our actions and their concomitant reactions in this and previous lives, all of which determines our future. It is the interplay between our experience and how we respond to it that makes karma devastating or helpfully invigorating. The conquest of karma lies in intelligent action and dispassionate reaction.
Not all karmas rebound immediately. Some accumulate and return unexpectedly in this or other births.
The ultimate reward is release from samsara and union with God. Samsara represents the cycle of life, death, and rebirth in which a person carries his or her own karma. Each life cycle presents an opportunity for redressal and balance. “ You reap what you sow" mirrors the Hindu concept of karma.
A hundred and one lights radiate from the heart. One of them shines upwards to the crown of the head. This Brahma Nadi points the way to immortality. Every other light points to death. There are many enlightened persons but to find a liberated person worthy of moksha is extremely rare.
Just because a fake saint deceived everbody claiming to be a videha , and his followers buried him in meditative pose, he will NOT attain moksha. Rather he will pay dearly for his deceit. Emancipation during one's life time is Jivanmukti while the same after death is Videhamukti.
In India a known Jivan mukta like Maharishi Ramana , is above the law of the land meant for wordly humans. The large hearted and virtuous liberated sage has separated himself from the mind. He is just a witness of the mind.
He who cuts asunder the bondage of limitations, vileness of mind etc. attains the eternal bliss of salvation.
The ultimate aim of mankind is moksha. A soul which has attained moksha lives blissfully in vaikuntha in a spiritual body in the presence of God.
“The one who renounces his ego, who is liberated from arrogance, jealousy etc. , who performs actions without harboring likes/dislikes, is called a Jeevan – Mukta (liberated while yet alive) by wise men.”- Mahopanishad (2/50)
As per our Hindu scriptures a human being is essentially an atman clothed in a physical body. The Sanskrit word atman, means "God within," is usually translated as soul, self, or spirit.
If the physical body of an individual were compared to a computer, the atman would represent the electricity that operates the computer. Without atman, the human body is insentient. In a human body atman is the source of the mind, intellect and ego sense.
Atman or soul is immortal and divine. Therefore, an individual is potentially divine and eternally perfect. There are two states of existence associated with atman: the bound state and the liberated state. In the bound state, atman is associated with a physical body. As a result of this association, atman is subject to mãya, which causes it to forget its true divine nature and commit evil deeds in the world.
The powers of maya are two-fold. As cosmic ignorance, maya deludes the atman into forgetting its own true nature. As creative energy (shakti) of Brahman, maya is the material cause of the universe. In the liberated state, atman is said to have attained moksha (spiritual perfection) and consequently enjoys union with God.
Dharma belongs to the universe and to the individual as well.. All things follow their allocated dharma, except mankind. When God created the universe, He endowed it with order, with the laws to govern creation.
This is the basis of Sanatana Dharma.
Dharma is divine law prevailing on every level of existence, from the sustaining cosmic order to religious and moral laws which bind us in harmony with that order. When we follow dharma, we are in conformity with the laws that sustains the universe.

Above : After death when you are cremated and your skull pops, your soul is shot up by a soliton carrier wave to one of these 7 energy layers – depending on your aura energy / kundalini raise . A moksha soul go to the highest energy plane.
Remember you are immortal— you were born with the stars , at the beginning of cosmic creation. Your cadaver/ body is like a pair of jeans , you discard on death .

Indeed, i read the above post and its exactly same. Sir, however one question - usually we offer water on shiva lingam (due to reasons explained in one of your earlier post), then at vatican and kabba, are they still continuing the same practice covertly ?... What happens if this is not continued or are there any other alternatives (may be a silly question).. I am still learning...

You will find millions of funda on the internet and Hindu literature – even by learned gurus like Vivekananda and hundreds of shankaracharyas..
NOBODY HAS UNDERSTOOD HINDUISM SINCE ADI SHANKARACHARYA OF 2000 BC—and few German Quantum physicists ( who all converted to Hinduism and got cremated. .)
Shiva Lingam contains the soul-seed ( DNA ) within which lies the essence of the entire cosmos.
Water holds memory.
Copper kalasha drips water right on top of the shiva lingam and this water bathes the lingam uniformly. In ancient days this water used to be LIVING ganges water.
The base has a run off for water – and this water is holy theertham . The white man called the Lingam as Shiva’s erect phallus and the run off base for water as YONI( vagina – note the extreme sarcasm ).
ALL LIFE ON THIS PLANET EARTH CAME FROM SHIVA LINGAM – A BLACK METRORITE STONE . WHEREVER WE FOUND SUCH A STONE, THE HINDUS MADE A TEMPLE OVER IT .
I have been telling this in my posts .
One day, three years ago NASA agreed with capt ajit vadakayil.
Punch into Google search-
You will find it on page one item one among 8 million posts—even ahead of NASA’s post on this subject .
If you cant see it by some quirk, enter-- NASA DNA METEORITE VADAKAYIL.
Theertham water holds memory .
The computers of the future ( maybe 200 years in future ) will NOT contain silicon chips.
They will hold water . In another 400 years I predict computers will be conscious and they can laugh at a joke or tell the moral of a story narrated to it .
Punch into Google search-
WATER VALLEY VADAKAYIL .
MILLIONS OF HINDUS WERE MADE SELF LOATHING BY THE STORY OF SHIVA’S PRICK DRIPPING SEMEN ALL AROUND THE PLACE , RIGHT?
We had INDOPHILE white men and women ( like Wendy Doniger ) interpreting Hindusim for us , right?—all wolves in sheep’s clothing !
TIME FOR THESE IMMORAL WHITE MEN TO EAT HUMBLE FU#KIN’ PIE !
IT IS THE INTERNET AGE—
IT IS PAYBACK TIME !
