My Father Died

Query: My Father died... My father who died still comes to earth to bless us, is in peace? Or is there anything that is troubling/bothering him? He usually cries when he is coming and blessing us. Why? Is my family safe and out of any black magic? both mom's and in laws.

Kaivalya Jnani:
Imagine the situation when a human being is worried about the soul atman... an essence of God Almighty in minuscule form! Under no circumstances can the workings of a human being affect the workings of an independent soul atman. Why?

It is for the simple reason that it is our soul atman (residing within our heart) that is the true master and controller of the body... never otherwise! It is our soul atman that has manifested the human form... the body to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within!

Your dear father... as long as he was alive remained your father. The moment the soul atman of your dear father departed from the body... it liberated itself of all the bindings of the present life. None knows where this soul atman of your beloved father would manifest in next life.

As per the complex theory of karma... the doctrine of karma stipulated in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the soul atman of your father (because of the karmic bonding) is most likely to manifest a body again in the same family. The residual balance of karma that travels with every soul atman demands so.

If you find the image of your father crying... this simply indicates... His untimely death left some tasks undone he badly wanted to do. If your father was alive and whatever he might have wanted to do for you and the family... it becomes imperative upon you to follow the path your father would have wanted you to follow.

Here we need to remember one thing... every child is not expected to ceremoniously follow the dictates of one's parents... but if the wishes of the family... the beloved parents match the wishes of the individual... the day those wishes get fulfilled... the image of your father would stop crying and would altogether vanish.

Whatever is your goal of life (if you have one)... follow them truthfully always remaining true to your heart. The moment you accomplish your cherished goal... you would find the image of your father at peace with itself. You would have done your part of duty and in the process reached your goal.

Life in the cosmic domain never stops... what is death in the mortal world... is but a changing of garment for the soul atman within. The death of a body is like changing of guard at Buckingham Palace... a daily routine! Every soul atman in a single span of life of 8.4 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million earthly years) keeps on changing... rather manifesting form after another until it liberates itself from the cycle of birth and death forever.

If you truly want to understand life... do not run after Jainism scriptures alone... try to assimilate... read in between the lines of the 700 shlokas (verses) of the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. You would never find yourself at loss. The essence of Bhagavad Gita can never be learnt literally... one needs understanding the inner wisdom contained.

Whenever remembering your beloved father... always think of what your father truly wanted in life. Accomplish those goals and all would be well. Never think of the sarcasm or criticism which one sometimes encounters in life! Putting all your eggs in one basket... go after the goal of your life with a bulldog determination! If you do not have one... make one!

Almost 99% people world over never form a goal in life... their life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean. Having a goal in life is journey half covered.

Never think of what we must achieve... always think what can be achieved step-by-step... piece by piece! Everything simply cannot be gained in one go. The human life was ordained to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in 1.1 million manifestations... still, so many people world over claim having reached the stage of enlightenment... self realization... to what avail!

One can fool the masses... but what of the self... our true inner self... our soul atman that is the true master and controller of the body. Most human beings in life do not realize the importance our soul atman plays in life. We simply run after the ephemeral pleasures of life... which is but a fleeting moment in the entire life span of 96.4 million earthly years for the soul atman.

Also remember... we have one life to live... who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not do our best... attempt our best in present life!

Whenever anything wrong befalls a family or an individual... all owes its existence to the negative residual balance of karma... rather mass karma of the family as a whole! By indulging in Punya karma (positive karma) one can always negate the negative karma of previous lives. I again repeat... the shackles of the negative karma of the previous births can only be eradicated permanently by indulgence in positive karma... Punya karma all the time!

Truly... there is nothing like black magic in the world. If positivity exists in the whole Cosmos... so does negativity! At any given moment of time the sum total of the entire Cosmos must always remain zero. That is how the cosmic system runs by itself. If we have day... we also have night! If we have fire... we also have water! If we have happiness... we also have our part of sufferings!

One simply cannot say... I desire happiness all the time... it simply cannot be! The whole Cosmos would stagnate that very moment... if only happiness existed in the world! Primarily... it is the sufferings that propel one on the path of pure spirituality. Those devoid of food and shelter do not seek or gain enlightenment.

The privilege of gaining enlightenment is of the choicest few... those who have experienced every bit of life in all forms. Only then human beings search for the hidden truths of life... in the absence of which they feel incomplete... rather betrayed!

Most human beings who have reached the stage of enlightenment... were Kings not only in nomenclature but also their behavior.

May God give you strength to bear the loss of your mortal father... and may you find and busy self with the goal of your life... May God Almighty bless you and your family!
