Goal of Life.

When a person is born, he is born with the microcosm of God and with some condensed energy emanating from that microcosm. But when many persons leave this gross body, their souls instead of flying like the bullet are lost like the lifeless casing of the cartridge.

Most of the time human life is subjected to extroversion and so ample time is wasted on searching happiness from the external objective world. Some are after wealth, some are after fame and some are after worldly love. It is really surprising that some persons, who seek spiritual liberation, are also seeking the same in the external objective world!

When our energy i.e. life force starts flowing outward, it is transformed into Vasana - intense desires for alluring objects of pleasure and that makes our inclinations for worldly objects stronger and stronger. But if the same energy resorts to introversion through Pranayam and meditation and it begins to flow inward, there arises Upasana – selfless devotion and communion to the divine form of God Supreme.

A person becomes truly enlightened and spiritual when he seeks for Bliss within. The deeper a person dives in his heart, the more he enjoys on the surface. The question is of diving within.

The spiritual practice of Pranayam leads us inward and downward to the depth and as a result success rises upward. See the flowers blooming on the very tall tree but their source of strength lies in the roots that go downward. Meditation leads a person deep, down within. As a result of this a person rises to the crest of divine bliss experienced through the realization of the self and that of the Supreme.

When the purpose of life is to move from the lower to higher plane then you are on the path of spirituality. In short the practice that leads to something eternal and everlasting is called SPIRITUAL.

  1. Jay Swaminarayan! Can you please list steps to do Pranayam for all satsangis?

  2. Yes off course I am trying to work on this line of action. It has great benefit in our journey to Shree Swaminarayan Bhagawan.

  3. "Some are after wealth, some are after fame and some are after worldly love. It is really surprising that some persons, who seek spiritual liberation, are also seeking the same in the external objective world!"

    It is surprising that people who seek spiritual liberation are also seeking the same in wordly pleasures. These two things are on the complete opposite sides of the totem pole. On one side you have the worldy pleasures that can make a person happy, but the person will keep wanting better things. On the other side you have spiritual liberation that leads us to God and he is the one who can fill us with bliss. People are nieve. And I say this because when we want these wordly pleasures we go get them and they do bring us happiness, but it is for a short period of time because we always want something bigger and better. In the end it brings us unhappiness. We get upset and torture oursevles for wanting these wordly pleasures. In the PHYSICAL world money, power, material things, etc label us and group us into catergories of importance. So many people want these wordly objects to feel important and show off what they have. These objects can be taken from us at any moment at God's will. And what will happen to these people who are attached to their objects? They will probably curse God out and become upset. And this is because they are not mentally and spiritually mature enough on their journey to spiritual liberation. What we all need to remember is - God is the only one who can bring us true bliss.

  4. the wealthy will rarely experience God as his requires complete innocense. the super wealthy while dealing with various person of this world have lost Michael their innocense. there are scientists who say bliss or happiness is nothing but release of dopamine in the brain when one experiences a pleasurable stimulus in one of the 5 senses. I wonder where the experience of God falls in this sense. it's hard to imagine that in this mass universe, there is only this planet that exhibits human life which grasps the concept of God. so has God focus or is focusing all His energy on this Planet and only souls on this planet can achieve liberation.
