TRUE FAITH: FAITH IN GOD is only True Faith, and not in a religion.
God is the eternal sublime Truth and that is what you seek and want in your life.
While religion is a man-made institute and fabrication.
Fabricated by the ingenuity of the human mind as a social institute.
Thus religions are a social club.
While TRUE RELIGION is a ONE TO ONE AFFAIR WITH GOD.
Religions DE-FOCUS one from God, as a social gathering and a community get-together, and thus
NOT WITH GOD, which is a ONE TO ONE BASIS.
Hence people fight for their religions and wage war over it, all in the name of their religion.
But none do so in the NAME OF GOD.
For, God is the same God, for each and every one, therefore one cannot wage war against God.
This itself shows, how silly and foolish is man.
While TRUE WAR is to wage war against the DEMONS in oneself.
Then only will one get closer to God, by becoming godly.
This is the HOLY WAR, not the crusades, the religious conversions, or even to proselytise from one religion to another.
It should be noted, that the practice of religion is unrelated to GOD and also unrelated to the WAY TO GOD.
Since God has NO RELIGION.
Hence, why should man?
WHY NOT BE LIKE GOD, to attain God.
GOD is your FOCUS (OF ATTENTION).
Hence, God is your ‘WAY TO GOD’.
When man is FOCUSSED on God, he transcends religious beliefs and its co-related practices and belief systems.
Hence WAKE UP:
WAKE UP to what True Religion is all about.
The European people have woken up.
But, they should not fall into another trap and become a victim of another religion.
If you do, then it will take another lifetime to get out of it.
The REFORMATION begun by MARTIN LUTHER happened around 400 years ago.
But, it took a long time to break the shackles and come out of the falsely imposed belief-systems.
There is a need for a similar reformation everywhere.
So that man can find his way back to his God-Source.
If per chance, you belong to a religion or a religious club, you will never arrive at God.
Hence, don’t get hooked to misconceived belief systems, which are a manmade human fabrication, to keep you trapped and caged in religion.
Religion is a cage to cage you.
Europe as realised it.
They are WAKING UP.
But don’t unwittingly enter another cage.
Be free, to be with God and attain Enlightenment, or NIRVANA, or MOKSHA.
Even Hindu religion is a cage to trap you.
It is a finely tuned ornamental cage with many openings or trap doors to ensnare you with gatekeepers, who happen to be the so called Gurus, waiting to snare you in, with their magical powers, acquired by dubious black-magic tantric practices to befool you.
Wherever a religious structure comes in, BEWARE.
A good teaching has NO RELIGIOUS CONTENT or OVERTONES and is freely open to one and all.
It is based on universal Spiritual laws and Truths.
To KNOW and LIVE this TRUTH, no affiliation is needed and nor is it necessary.
ADWAITA: NON-DUAL AWARENESS is not a religion.
It is the appropriate Awareness towards God-the DIVINE, stripped of all its Metaphysics or Philosophy and its accompanying MUMBO-JUMBO methodologies.
If you focus on its theories, you will miss the whole point and end up as an ignorant scholar.
Scholasticism has taken the upper hand and Non-Dual Awareness has receded into the background.
This scholasticism is what is available in the open market today.
Piety and Non-dual Awareness with its way has disappeared.
Non-dual Awareness is not a TEXT-BOOK knowledge of the scriptures of a scholar.
To live it, requires its accompanying virtues.
If not Non-dual Awareness is not possible.
The Hindus have not realised it yet.
They are very much into DUALITY, with the worship of the various gods and demi-gods.
All temple structures are designed for this purpose.
The nett result is, the current belief system and its practices is all related to the AWARENESS of DUALITY, and thereby NON-DUAL AWARENESS is virtually non-existent in the mind-structure of the people. They are all heavily conditioned by the worship of the various gods and demi-gods. And this is their living religion. Even Ashrams of all denominations and sects have this structure.
Once a person has NON-DUAL AWARENESS, it is technically impossible to worship the gods for whatever purpose.
Thus the Hindus have not realised it yet.
The Guru trap is like a game-keeper trapping you.
Don’t get caught and be ensnared and enslaved to a so called Guru cage.
Instead focus your attention on God and all will be well with you.
God is your Guru.
It is only HE, who would and who could lead you to Enlightenment.
Not a half-baked so called Guru with a lot of tricks up his sleeve.
Really speaking you don’t need a human Guru.
You only need a teaching to show you the WAY, and the rest is up to you and God.
The Buddha rightly gave an emphasis on the teaching which will lead one to Nirvana.
Lord Krishna ONLY gave a teaching called the Bhagavad Gita.
Krishna did not call Arjuna and whisper in his ear a formula or a Mantra.
Instead, he gave an ENLIGHTENING TEACHING to clear Arjuna’s ignorance and told him what’s more, to live the teachings.
The WAY TO ENLIGHTENMENT is one and the same for the entire human race.
As human nature and its problems and aspirations are the same and thereby the solution has to be the same too.
Religion is not the WAY.
YOUR LIFE IS THE WAY.
LIVING YOUR LIFE IS THE WAY.
Not a bunch of religious beliefs and practices.
LIVING your life with PIETY and REVERENCE is the WAY.
If you want to experience God, be godly in all what you are.
This is a GOLDEN RULE.
If not, you cannot and will not.
This is the LAW OF LIFE.
Religions are arguing over the merits of their respective systems.
When you truly understand what God is all about and the WAY to it, then all antagonism and conflict end.
FOR GOD IS ONE.
WITHIN IS GOD PRESENT.
AWAITING TO BE DISCERNED BY ONE, WITHIN.
For this, no temple, no church, no vihara is needed.
For you are the TEMPLE OF GOD.
Therefore, SANCTIFY YOUR TRUE TEMPLE.
This is SANCTIFICATION.
When you SANCTIFY, you will JUSTIFY for the GRACE, which will dawn within you.
This is JUSTIFICATION.
Have I unwittingly stumbled into Christian theology.
Jesus too, obliquely spoke of NON-DUAL AWARENESS.
When he said, “When the eye is single it is full of light”.
The light of Awareness.
The LIGHT OF GOD-AWARENESS.
In this statement He reveals the WAY TO GOD.
To do this or maintain this AWARENESS, you don’t need a Theology or Adwaita Metaphysics or Philosophy.
They are needless, redundant pastimes to keep you occupied mentally.
For, to attain SALVATION, or NIRVANA, or MOKSHA, you will have to get out of your mind, your processing mind.
How to do so.
JESUS once again states;
“NARROW IS THE GATE, VERY FEW FIND IT.”
What is a gate???
It is the entry and the exit point.
ENTRY INTO THE UNIVERSE AND EXIT FROM THE UNIVERSE.
I will not spoon-feed you and dilate further.
Lord Krishna, all through and through the Bhagavad Gita speaks of it.
BUDDHA too, enigmatically made reference to it.
I wonder whether the Buddhists have caught it.
Or whether they are tangled in Buddhist Philosophy.
For, BUDDHA showed the DIRECT WAY TO NIBBANA, but enigmatically stated as a riddle in camouflaged terms.
The components of TRUE RELIGION, will be enumerated and explained in the next instalment.
In the meanwhile, read and re-read my earlier teachings.
When you read, PAUSE and THINK.
Read a little at a time.
Find out whether you resonate with it.
Try to understand.
It will flash in your mind.
Its significance and content.
I AM THE WAY.
MY LIFE IS THE WAY.
MY LIFE IS MY RELIGION.
IT IS UNIQUE AND UNIQUE TO ME,
BECAUSE, I AM UNIQUE.
Therefore I cannot fit and will not fit into any of the standard religions currently available in the open market.
It will always be like a square peg in a round hole.
As such, I will have to EVOLVE my own religion, as it suits my nature, my disposition to act, to be and to function.
Thus my religion is an ever-evolving process, as my understanding evolves and progresses, as my nature matures into clarity and maturity.
Hence don’t remain stuck in the current Kinder Garten stuff and level of religion.
They are just play-toys to keep you amused and entertained.
How long do you want to live with a Spiritually stunted mind.
A HOLY MAN once lamented, people at 70 years of age are still practising their Kinder Garten religion which they had acquired at the age of 7.
What a state of affairs.
Thus, when you don’t understand the living of life, then religions have been created or invented to keep you befooled.
Hence to evolve your religion gather the source-material DIRECTLY from the TEXTS from all traditions.
The TEXTS are the SCRIPTURES.
By this a wealth of knowledge and teaching will be available to you, to discern the TRUTH and what the TRUTH IS, and what the Truth teachings are.
These TRUTHS contained in different scriptures compliment and supplement each other and thereby enhance your understanding.
They corroborate each other, but are only worded differently with different expressions.
They would never conflict with each other.
Only the commentators and followers with their bigoted minds do so.
They all give the same Truth teachings.
Because their source, namely God, CANNOT and WILL NOT give or REVEAL disparate teachings to the human world.
It is only the human interpretations which are faulty and incorrect.
So do be careful of all these discordant teachings surfacing in the world, each claiming to be true and all else an error.
REMEMBER: There is only ONE SOURCE for all the good teachings and that source is GOD.
All others can only corroborate the good teachings of God, but cannot INVENT a new teaching.
Therefore, remember, a SCRIPTURE has a God source.
That is, either REVEALED by God, or by a MESSIAH or AVATAR, which is one and the same.
For a Messiah or Avatar came from God.
It is a human descent of God expressly meant to give a teaching. But not to be worshipped.
Lord Krishna spoke of the ATMAN present within.
Lord Jesus spoke of His FATHER.
Lord Buddha spoke of NIBBANA.
The above three signify and denote one and the same concept.
But people fail to understand and comprehend this. Alas.
The ATMAN is the FATHER which gets experienced in NIBBANA.
Jesus was not a Christian, nor did he teach Christianity.
The Church doctrine was evolved later.
Buddha was not a Buddhist.
He gave a solid and a royal teaching to proceed towards NIBBANA or NIRVANA, with NO RELIGIOUS OVERTONES.
It was a ‘WAY OF LIFE’ that he taught.
A way of life leading to Salvation or Enlightenment.
Buddha stripped his teachings from all needless religious overtones, belief systems and what’s more practices too.
He brought out the underlying Truth in Religion.
Then Lord Krishna too spoke and taught in the Bhagavad Gita, the ‘ART OF LIVING AND ATTAINING ENLIGHTENMENT’.
There is not a word of conventional religion and its co-related practices in the Bhagavad Gita.
KRISHNA expounded the TRUE SANATANA DHARMA.
The eternal Dharma to base one’s life in the eternal TRUTH, which is the ATMAN within.
The ATMAN within which is distinct from the so called individual soul.
The so called individual soul is a psychological fabrication, sometimes referred to as ‘PUDGALA’ in the Buddhist tradition, and as the individual soul in the Christian tradition.
And also referred to as the JIVATMAN in the Hindu context.
This mischievous little fellow is the root-cause of all your problems. He is a bundle of mischief who has not only projected himself, but also a huge play-field called the universe.
Hence CLEAR him and you will attain Salvation, or Enlightenment and thereby be in Nirvana.
That is why Jesus said:
“When you lose yourself, you will find TRUE LIFE”.
The sublime ART OF LOSING YOURSELF is what Buddha taught.
But, you will only lose yourself, when you realise the need to do so.
Then YOU ARE ON THE WAY to freedom and liberation.
To be liberated from this individualised bundle of energy possessing an EGO-CENTRE- the mischievous little fellow.
This is what is termed as MOKSHA-liberated state.
Therefore, having understood, you have to only work at your own liberation from yourself.
Only you can do this.
It is Q.E.D. – Quite easily done.
Of course, to be free, the first step is to be a good boy, and follow the spiritual rules of life.
Then only, all the good will follow from that.
The first rule is:
BE GOOD, DO GOOD.
If you cannot be good,
don’t do BAD and be WICKED.
These are the elementary rules of life, which would make you a SAINT.
Be godly and you will become a god.
Because you are a potential god, awaiting your Godly manifestation.
But don’t be a FOOL and begin worshipping a god.
Then you miss the point.
But go about living your life in a noble just manner with love and compassion.
By this, you will arrive at your God-source sooner than you think.
