Karma Yoga

Query: Karma Yoga... Was the doctrine always the same in the Dharma, what I mean, is the rules they use today the same than hundreds of years ago? We had a debate on the Christian religion, and we found that years ago they had the ones frame ones basic principles, for example if somebody did not believe he was referred to as some sort of evil. Today they even allow gay's to marry. What could have changed them so much, and what keep Islam together to not change?


Kaivalya Jnani:
Apart from the earlier details... there are some very important aspects that relate to every religion and broadly mankind! On the path of karma yoga... every human being dwells between the karma index of 7.3000000 and 8.4000000. In simpler terms God Almighty envisaged a journey of 1.1 million manifestations (a total journey of 12.4 million earthly years) in the human form!


It is only when human beings reach the last manifestation... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... one gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha). Bill Gates... the chief architect of Microsoft Corporation may not be spiritual person yet, he is a philanthropist of the highest order.

No businessman... no entrepreneur ever succeeds in life unless one returns back to the community a portion of ones gains. It is quite possible Bill Gates exists on the karma index of 85. At 99 one becomes a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed! What of the commoner dwelling at 44?

If a particular community keeps dwelling around karma index of 44... They develop fundamental tendencies. Only when human beings scale higher in the journey of life... does the habit of slavish animal indulgence stop altogether... never before! And what makes one rise higher on the karma index... become Bill Gates in practical life!


God Almighty ordained a particular quota of energy that is provided to every man and woman month after month... year after year until the person drops dead! Most human beings while away this potential source of cosmic energy by sensual indulgences. Others... those who succeed in life learn to transmute this cosmic energy to more creative channels!

By preserving this quota of energy... by creative channeling of this particular quota of energy... human beings travel the spiritual path unknowingly. This results in awakening of the Kundalini in stages. The awakening of the Kundalini becomes possible when human beings practice voluntary celibacy for longer periods of time.

The moment Kundalini awakens fully... the Shahastra Pushpa (the thousand petalled Lotus) existing within our brain and behind the forehead opens fully. The moment this happens one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the state of nothingness... after which one can have a dialogue with God Almighty on one-to-one basis and that too permanently!


For gaining enlightenment... practice of celibacy and awakening of the Kundalini is a necessity. All successful people in different walks of life learn this hidden ingredient of truth early in life! Sooner they take charge of their destiny... rather manifest destiny in the early stages of life!

During my world trip in 1985, I observed most Americans practicing spirituality yet, none of them was aware of the meaning of spirituality! The prime reason... why an average American remains happy from within! Practicing absolute truthfulness is the forte of successful people!

Only when human beings failed to practice celibacy... unable to retain the cosmic energy provided month after month... one practically lives the life of an animal! The bodily structure being the same... the blood and the vital elements being the same... yet one is a success and the other dismal failure. Why?


Only by establishing control over our sensual indulgences... human beings proceed ahead in life. More the indulgence... deeper the tendency of fundamentalism! In India, Hinduism forms the core of life! Every true Hindu believes in God Almighty. One may or may not travel the spiritual path... the yearning for traveling the spiritual path always exists!

This results in practicing patience, persistence and perseverance at its best! The prime reason why Indians are not fanatic in nature! The degradation of the moral and ethical values implies more indulgence in everything sensual! It is only the yearning for traveling the spiritual path... most Hindus live a balanced life... a life full of gaiety and laughter!
