Concluding Message: The Stages of Ascent to Moksham
8: The Stages of Ascent to Moksham:
When such a state of universal recognition of a pervading force is attained, the only one thing that remains for a person—who is really not a person but is a centre of force—is to identify one’s own localised point of existence with this universal force so that what exists is not a sadhaka with a universal power, because this sadhaka has gone into the very bosom of the sea of power.
It is cosmic prana, cosmic mind, cosmic intellect, cosmic consciousness—whatever we may call it.
This state of immersion of one’s own being into the pervading presence of universal force is true liberation.
In that condition, whether we exist in this body or do not exist in this body, it makes no difference.
While we exist in the physical body even with this realisation, we may be called a jivanmukta purusha in the language of the scriptures.
The mind is not concentrated on the body; it is concentrated on that to which this body belongs.
