Self Realization Quotes

Query: Self Realization Quotes... Best quotes on self realisation as per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!


Kaivalya Jnani :
First quote on self realization: the ultimate goal of life as per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism always remained reaching stage of self realisation... God realization... termed enlightenment by many! Realizing our true inner self... realizing we are a soul atman... the spirit within is gaining Tattva jnana... the ultimate essence of life as per Bhagavad Gita!

Self realization can never be gained via path of religion... path of rituals! For reaching stage of self realisation journey of spiritual path was necessitated! As per Bhagavad Gita we are primarily a spirit... a cosmic consciousness on its cosmic life cycle of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly travel of 96.4 million years!

It is only through complex process of karma and evolution our soul atman... the spirit within gradually gained more purity when human beings travelled spiritual path! The moment our soul atman gained absolute purity... one finally became an enlightened one... a bodhi... a Mahavira... a Jina... the knower of all! In Hinduism a soul is termed atman.


Second quote on self realization: journey of life in cosmic system always belonged to our soul atman... the spirit within and never the manifest human form! Our soul atman... the spirit within is the absolute master and controller of human body and not vice versa! It is not within the capability of human body to manifest a soul atman.

Ever since God Almighty exploded self with a big bang... all souls atmans in cosmos got mired in impurities! To cleanse self of dross impurities within started cosmic life cycle of every soul atman! No sooner life supporting planets like mother earth evolved in cosmic system... the hurtling souls atmans started manifesting life on mother earth!

Initially every soul atman manifested form of an amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in cosmic life cycle! It further evolved into multi-cell formation... then insect life, plant life, animal life and finally forms of human beings! Human form is the highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle. It is only in human form our soul atman finally regained its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form!


Third quote on self realization: because of the presence of ego within every human being failed to realize the essence within! Until human beings reached stage of enlightenment... termed self realisation... God realization... one never realized the absolute crux of life! Indulgence in Bhagavad Gita was primarily meant for unveiling these hidden cosmic truths of life!

It is assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita human beings finally realized absolute truths of life! Step-by-step slowly as veil of ignorance removed... human beings scaled higher levels of spiritual pursuit! Essence of life laid in cutting across shackles of karma forever! It is only by establishing absolute control over five senses and mind... human beings negated karma forever! For cutting across shackles of karma... wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita was necessitated... something one could never do without!

Dominated by a bloated ego... most human beings pursued materialistic goals of life! Can such human beings ever be expected to travel spiritual path... reach cosmic end of life! It is indulgence in wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita human beings finally realized shallowness of human life! By following Bhagavad Gita we never gained anything in life... rather we let loose the ignorance contained within! 

Fourth quote on self realization: in the present scientific age... present Kali Yuga... Dark Age... metal age... to realize self... to realize god within... essence of Bhagavad Gita was necessitated! In present times one could never reach God via path of Vedas... path of rituals! Contemplation on God Almighty was the only path to gain self realisation... God realization in present life!

Contemplation on God Almighty is best realized through path of self enquiry (path of Neti... not this, not this) as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana... one who realized God in his lifetime! Maharishi Ramana started in search of God via path of bhakti yoga but finally switched to path of jnana yoga... path of absolute wisdom for realization of self!

Truly... self realization... God realization is not that easily achieved... prime reason why in last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over only two persons succeeded in finally realizing self... spiritual stalwarts Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! After gaining self realization... the liberated soul atman finally entered kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no return!


Fifth quote on self realization: reaching stage of self realization announced reaching end of cosmic life... 8.4 millionth manifestation... last in cosmic life cycle! For a self realized soul... nowhere to go further... moment one left mortal frame one gained salvation (moksha) forever!

For gaining self realization apart from establishing absolute control over five senses and mind... practice of absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation was necessitated! Abstinence from sexual indulgence hardly counted for 10% of physical aspect of celibacy... 90% celibacy always practiced mentally!

Eradication of flow of negative thoughts to our brain in totality is what pure celibacy... absolute celibacy is all about! Every second thousands of thoughts flowed to our brain uninvoked. Unless we plugged the flow of these incessant thoughts in totality... one never reached stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... stage of absolute nothingness!


With practice of absolute celibacy... awakened our Kundalini Shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of spine! As dross impurities within our soul atman gradually reduced... awakening of our kundalini expedited. The moment full awakening of kundalini occurred... Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in our brain behind forehead opened fully!

One immediately gained enlightenment... termed self realization... God realization! For an enlightened one our brain became hundred percent active! Normal human beings used their brain one percent... 99% always lying dormant! Reaching stage of self realization... God realization finally resulted in full activation of our brain.

One finally becomes knower of all... gains omniscience for all practical purposes! All man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed finally gained enlightenment in their lifetime! All were born ordinary mortals. By travelling path of pure spirituality all these man gods finally reached cosmic end of life by reaching stage of self realization... god realization!


As a trustee of World Wide Center for Self Realization... we are primarily involved in dissemination of jnana wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Through our websites http://www.godrealized.com and http://www.godrealized.org we are presenting to mankind essence of Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads that formed core of Hinduism!

The managing trustee of World Wide Center for Self Realization... Vijay Kumar finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age! This being last manifestation on mother earth... having gained absolute purity... the moment one left mortal frame... attaining salvation (moksha) remained the only goal of life! Truly... life is a puzzle difficult to solve... yet, not impossible!

For an ardent seeker of spirituality... one who exhibited willpower demonstrated by Swami Vivekananda... nothing seemed impossible! If we have the will, God always showed the way! In the cosmic crux of life it is karma that is dominating! Every human being is the absolute master and controller of ones destiny! God Almighty never played active part in visible cosmic system!


As detailed in Bhagavad Gita God Almighty always acted as Dhrishta (onlooker)... never interfering with creation of his! Throughout life... the 8.4 million manifestations... life was guided by inscrutable laws of karma... as we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more! Manifesting positive karma... good karma all the time human beings finally realized self!
