Concluding Message: The Stages of Ascent to Moksham
8: The Stages of Ascent to Moksham:
It is then said to be salvation where even this little appendage of the body born through past karma drops completely, and the pure existence, the soul as it is, merges into the Universal Soul. This is called moksha, for which sadhana is practised. We do not live in this world for any other purpose.
The consciousness of the aim of existence is a primary modification of any kind of spiritual aspiration. Routine activity, doing the same thing every day, chanting the same mantra without knowing its implications, and actually in practical life getting immersed in the oblivion of one’s relationship with this universal force, is not sadhana. There must be an actual awakening to this great fact of one’s vital relationship to the all-pervading power, the immersion of oneself with it, the communion of oneself with it, the self-identification of oneself with it, being it, and having an experience of only one existence. This is moksha, for which purpose we are striving. May God bless you!
