How Do I Become Self-Realized And Enlightened?
Presently, it’s the darkness of the ignorance of the Self that prevails within us. The light of the knowledge of the Self is what is required by us to become Self-Realized and enlightened.
So who can kindle this light within?
To understand this, let’s read on further…
To be Self-realized and enlightened means to realize that really ‘who am I’.
However, it’s not possible to Realize the Self on our Own
Suppose we are tied to a wall very tightly from top to bottom with a very strong rope. And right before our eyes, we can see that a pair of scissors, a sharp knife, blade, etc. which can easily cut the rope are all lying on a table besides us. So, can we manage to get our self free, with the help of these tools now?
No! No matter how hard we try, we will not be able to move even an inch, here or there. We require someone externally, who is capable of cutting this strong rope. Once that happens, we, with the help of this person, can persevere and free our self from the entire bind, isn’t it?
Similarly, here too, we require someone capable, who has the power to cut the strong bind of ignorance of the Self that we are tied up with for infinite lives, and free us once. Such a person is called Gnani, the Enlightened One, having the divine power to cut through our layers of ignorance and give us freedom. He does this and thus graces us with Self-Realization!!! Thereafter, following His instructions, we can attain ultimate liberation.
Gnani is the Enlightened being who has the spiritual power to Enlighten our Soul
Our Soul has been in profound sleep since infinite times. That which the world commonly refers to as awake; Gnani calls it ‘sleep’. Who we believe is seeing, for Gnani he is only a scene. The one who says, ‘I am awake’, for Gnani it is a part that’s inanimate, as He can see the Self that’s totally separate.
Not a single property of the inanimate part (body, mind, ego, intellect, etc.) matches with the property of the Self (the Soul). However, they are so very near to each other that the two appear to us to be just one.
It is only when Gnani puts in a line of demarcation and makes the separation by bestowing upon us the real knowledge of the Self, that this illusion disappears. Akram Gnani, with His spiritual powers, breaks the illusory link between the two in less than an hour’s time, and makes us realize that really ‘I am indeed a Pure Soul’.
This is how the intense experience of oneness between the inanimate part and the Self gets fractured very quickly (less than an hour’s time), iff Gnani is there to help!!!
Gnani eradicates our worldly wanderings of life-after-life and makes us sailing towards liberation.
Hence, to my mind, meeting such a Gnani would be the first step towards being Self-Realized and enlightened!
We are fortunate that currently we have amongst us Pujya Deepakbhai, the Akram Gnani, who is imparting the knowledge of the Self to all who come seeking for it. Since you are interested, you can take this first step and become Self-realized.
It neither has a monetary cost associated to it nor does it require you to forsake your religion or any of your belongings for it, because the Soul has no religion nor does it have any possessions. This just requires a couple of hours from your end, and of-course your desire to be Self-Realized and enlightened. So, wish you goodluck! 👍 For details, you may please check out https://www.dadabhagwan.org/contact-us/meet-pujya-deepakbhai/
