How Can One Attain Moksha?
How can one attain moksha?
Shrimad Rajchandra, an enlightened being has said:
“Look for nothing else. Find a Satpurush (the Enlightened One), surrender all your bhaav (feelings and intents) unto Him, and be the Self. If after that you do not attain moksha (liberation), then come and take it from me.”
A general belief prevails in society that if one wants to attain moksha, one has to forsake all their worldly duties and obligations and fully engage themselves into spiritual activities such as meditating, chanting, praying, penancing, etc.; only then can one progress on the path of moksha and attain liberation of the Soul.
However, Param Pujya Dadashri says, “Renunciation should be natural. That which is to be renounced should fall off on its own.”
Various great personalities like Shrimad Rajchandra, Lord Krishna, Arjuna, Lord Rama, etc. have attained Self-Realization, while living a regular worldly life in society and rendering all their worldly duties and obligations with utmost sincerity and classic perfection.
What’s the science behind this?
Param Pujya Dadashri assures: “It is possible to attain Self Realization even while living with your wife and your children. You can attain Self Realization while living the worldly life and fulfilling all your duties. I, who am living a worldly life too, can make this happen for you. You will have the freedom to do whatever you wish. Go to the cinema. Get your children married. Wear beautiful clothes, etc. What other guarantee do you need?”
But how is this made possible?…
In spirituality, the Self has to be realized. Upon Knowing ‘who am I’, all the puzzles get solved
To know ‘who am I’ is spiritual enlightenment.
Although we say, “I am John (the reader may insert his own name here)” in our worldly interactions, we are really a Pure Soul. The two are totally separate – while John is only our worldly or relative self, our real Self is the Pure Soul residing within.
‘I’ and ‘my’ are absolutely separate
‘I’ is the natural state of the Self and ‘my’ is a sense of ownership.
• ‘I’ means the Self. i.e. the Soul.
• ‘my’ means the non-Self. i.e. our entire being other than the Soul eg. our name, our body, mind, speech, ego, intellect, etc.
In Akram Vignan, the spiritual science that offers the stepless path to Self-Realization,…
Gnani, the Enlightened One, separates the Self and the non-Self, via a scientific process called Gnan Vidhi. This is science!
A brief excerpt from Dadashri’s spiritual discourse explaining this fundamentally unique spiritual research of Akram Vignan:
Dadashri: For example, this gold ring contains a mixture of copper and gold. Who do you think will be able to separate the gold from the copper?
Questioner: Only a goldsmith.
Dadashri: Yes, a goldsmith can separate the gold and the copper because he knows the qualities of both of these elements. Similarly, a Gnani Purush, the Enlightened One, knows the qualities of the Self and the non-Self and so he can separate the two.
The gold and copper in this ring are in the form of a mixture rather than a compound. The goldsmith, therefore, can easily separate the mixture. Similarly, the Self and the non-Self are in a mixture form and not in a compound form, which is why it is possible to extract one from the other. If they were in a compound form, it would not be possible to separate the two. That is why the Gnani Purush is able to separate the two, and one is able to understand the Self.
The knowledge of the Self is the real knowledge
While pursuing our worldly routine, our objective should always be to attain the real knowledge and real understanding in life. And if we happen to meet Gnani, we must consciously obtain such understanding that helps us migrate from this stage of bodily attachment of “I am John” to the stage of awareness of, “I am a Pure Soul.”
And thereafter, making this awareness complete should be our end goal.
We all are under pressure of our worldly obligations. But amidst this pressure, how to maintain the awareness of the Soul is a thing to learn. Gnani stays in such awareness himself and gives us keys which help us remain in such awareness while rendering our worldly obligations.
The one who knows the science of the Soul becomes free from wandering life after life
Many, who have met the Gnani Purush have attained the state of liberation (moksha). A heart-felt desire is that may everyone in this world attain this state!!!
