How to attain God-Realization?

Swami Ramsukhdasji:  When there is a deep longing for God Realization, then everything else will drop off. Without having an intense longing for God Realization, nothing can happen. You have everything at your disposal - this human body has been received, you have received Gita and Ramayan, you have received good satsang, you have visited Gangaji, what more can there be?

Have only one desire, let there be only one (God) that you trust, only one dependency (God), only one longing (God). Just like the chattak bird, that drinks water only directly from the rain showers. Even though it is dying of thirst, and is at the banks of Gangaji, yet the chaatak bird will only wait for the rains. Let our exclusivity and intense longing for that One be like the chaatak bird.

Human life is successful, only on realizing God. We must realize God. "Tere bhaave jo karo bhalo buro sansaar,"  - Do not worry about what others are doing, what they are thinking of us etc. Simply engage in only one thing (God), and everything else will follow suit. Everything else will become super simple, super easy. If there is one intense longing, all else will fall off.

No one is too young or too old to get started. But they all must have only one desire. Friends, such an opportunity will not be available in the future. If you do not have such intensity or deep longing for God, then it will only be self-betrayal. Simply speaking - we must realize God, no matter what others want, whether others want God or not.

And frankly, what other work do you really have?

True... as stated by Swami Ramsukhdasji reaching stage of god realization announces culmination of all things spiritual! The stage of god realization can be reached by any establishing absolute control over five senses and mind. Furthermore practice of absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation is also necessitated! God realization is the highest stage that can be achieved by human beings!

God realization has a deeper connotation... in English it simply stands for reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! Gaining god realization means becoming a man God like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed!

Namaste

Thank you for visiting Indiaspirituality.

I also agree with you. Regarding your comment.

**Furthermore practice of absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation is also necessitated!

I agree with you that celibacy is definitely needed (atleast mental celibacy & renunciation) and I know that Shastras give the period of 12 years. Just to make a note that these 12 years are for Self mastery and not for Self Realization or God Realization. They are for shaping mind. Self Realization is beyond Time and Space. Everything depends upon God.

This message stresses for deep desire for Self Realization and to have one and only one Goal.

Regarding your Link to your Site i do not agree with the statement

**In the last about 150 years only two persons have realized god... they were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharshi Ramana.

I honor your respect to these two great saints, but you missed Sri Sarada Maa, Swami Vivekananda and other direct disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. You also missed some other great saints like Trailokya Swami *whom Sri Ramakrishna considered as Self Realised), Swami Ramsukhdasji and his Guru Goenkaji.
