Enlightenment Kaivalya Jnana

Query: Enlightenment... I am a spiritual seeker. You write we have to take 12.1 million earthly years in the human form. If we have an average age of 60 years, then you mean to say that we have to take 201666 births as human. Is it is compulsory to take these many births? or there is a chance of getting enlightenment earlier. In other words Buddha, Mahavira or Jesus got their enlightenment in their 201666th birth. One more question. What is Ascension? Is there any stage after enlightenment?


Kaivalya Jnani:
As per the scriptures... the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna... the average life span has been assumed about 11 years! The total manifestations that can occur in the lifetime of a soul atman are 8.4 million. This is the maximum limit. In the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the human beings reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).

The life journey of 8.4 million manifestations is covered by the soul atman in about 96.4 million earthly years. Out of 8.4 million manifestations... the initial 7.3 million manifestations are spent in basic forms of life... the insect life, plant life and animal life!


Does it mean human life... the life in human form starts from the karma index of 7.300001 (on the scale of one to 8.4)... yes, it is a fact! Before reaching the human form... the soul atman has already covered 7.3 million manifestations in insect life, plant life and animal life!

In the human form the soul atman covers the balance 1.1 million manifestations in a time span of approximately 12.4 million years... a long journey indeed! The life span of the soul atman is one single continuous journey of life... the entire life span of 96.4 million earthly years!

In whatever stage of life as a human being one is... one can always reach the last manifestation... the 8.4 millionth manifestation in present life! It is possible... but very difficult to travel... Particularly for ladies! As per history only two ladies in the history of mankind reached the stage of enlightenment... Gargi and Maitreyi... in whose remembrance the famous Gargi and Maitreyi colleges in New Delhi, India exist!


Enlightenment kaivalya jnana is easily gained as a man but really difficult for a woman. God Almighty ordained it so. The feeling of Moha (deep emotional attachment) ingrained into every lady makes it almost impossible for ladies to reach the stage of enlightenment. Only when one cut across the shackles of Moha (bondage of attachment)... does one reach the stage of enlightenment!

Maitreyi was the wife of sage Jnanavalakya... the composer of Brihadaranakya Upanishad. Gargi was a famous philosopher... an intelligent woman of her time.

In whatever stage of life I may have been... when 11 years of age I wanted to meet and see God in this very life. By 13 years of age... my desire turned into firm conviction... come whatever may in this very life I shall meet and see God.


I started traveling the uncharted path of spirituality without a spiritual master... a spiritual guru to guide me. I was totally perplexed. In absence of a teacher... how was I to travel the spiritual path! Few years later one-day when I was totally disheartened... I asked God Almighty almost with disdain... how was I to locate one intelligent than me... my Guru!

A voice from within me prompted to God, "will you become my guide in this journey of life" and God Almighty said, "why not"! That was the day when I felt happiest... what a fool I had been by not putting the request to God early!

Ever since God Almighty became my guide in my spiritual pursuit, I covered the journey of self-realization in no time. At 37 years of age... on the third of August 1993... In the early morning hours I finally realized God. I had become one with God! I had completed my journey as a human being... I had finally reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation!


Practicing of absolutely celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation helped me awaken the Kundalini Shakti... the Serpentine cosmic energy lying dormant in the base of the spine! The awakening of the Kundalini for ladies is a tough job... not impossible!

The moment my Kundalini awakened fully absolutely unknown to me... I reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation! On whatever karma index I may have been... the full awakening of the Kundalini cut short my journey. Immediately thereafter the Shahastra Pushpa (the thousand petalled Lotus) existing in the brain behind the forehead opened fully.

The most versatile... the most prominent aspect of full awakening of the Kundalini is... our brain opens up fully. Most human beings in life never use their brain more than 1%. The famous physicist Albert Einstein used his brain 4%. Every enlightened human being uses his brain hundred percent.


The complete Wisdom of the Cosmos... the ABC of the Sacred Bhagavad Gita... everything that is worth knowable in the whole Cosmos becomes available to one. No more queries... one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the stage of absolute nothingness when one can have a dialogue with God Almighty on one-to-one basis.

Having reached the end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... I have nowhere else to go. The moment I leave my mortal frame... the body... I shall attain salvation (moksha)... and the liberated soul atman shall enter the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism).

Vaikunth... the kingdom of God is a point of no return! Every enlightened soul after salvation moksha enters the kingdom of God (Vaikunth in Hinduism). The liberated soul atman remains in the kingdom of God (Vaikunth) until eternity... i.e. until the dissolution of the Cosmos occurs (Pralaya in Hinduism).


The moment dissolution of the Cosmos occurs (Pralaya in Hinduism)... the entire Cosmos... everything contained in it reduces to the size of half a thumb (this is very clearly detailed in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna). And what is this half a thumb... the source of all creation that is!

This half a thumb... the cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos is what we know as God Almighty. The moment the entire Cosmos comes back to its original form... the size of half a thumb... unable to retain itself for long in its prime pure state... it again explodes with a big bang... giving rise to a new cosmos... a new journey of life.

Again the tumbling purified souls' atmans gather impurities in their cosmic sojourn. To purify themselves... to remove the dross within... these hurtling souls' atmans start on their cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an absolutely new cycle of life.


The dissolution of the Cosmos (we call Pralaya in Hinduism) is trillions of years away! It is not for human beings to dwell on such matters. However the removal of dross becomes possible by the complex theory of karma. From life to life... form to form... the residual balance of karma from one life passes to another... the next manifestation until the soul atman becomes pure.

Ascension does not to truly mean anything on the spiritual path... this word is a creation of those indulging in rituals... the ignorant dwelling in religion. True Ascension starts occurring when one starts preserving the vital quota of energy provided to every man and woman by God Almighty month after month! By practice of celibacy... our soul atman devoid of dross becomes lighter... and this is what Ascension is all about!

Full text of query: I am a spiritual seeker. Your web site is very informative. In one of your answers, I found that we have to take 12.1 million earthly years in the human form. If we have an average age of 60 years, then you mean to say that we have to take 201666 births as human. Is it is compulsory to take these many births? or there is a chance of getting enlightenment earlier. Or in other words, is Buddha, Mahavira or Jesus got their enlightenment in their 201666 th birth.

I have one more question. What is Ascension? Is there any stage after enlightenment?
