THE VICTORY OVER DEATH
IF YOU EXPERIENCE DEATH AND PERCEIVE THE PROCESS OF DYING IN SPIRITUAL MEDITATION YOU BECOME IMMORTAL AND THE FEAR OF DEATH NO LONGER HAUNTS YOU.
IN OTHER WORDS YOU WAKE UP AND BECOME FULLY ALIVE AS A SPIRIT WITH BODY AS EASILY SEPARABLE APPENDAGE TO THE IMMORTAL SPIRIT
The most haunting thought in the mind of man is the fear of death. One thing that nobody wants is Death yet every body gets it. There seems to be no escape from it. The agents of Death famine,hunger,disease, etc. are in themselves not so frightening as is their ultimate motive to transport the victim to the Kingdom of Death. There are certain diseases like AIDS, Cancer which come to the victim with the certainty of taking him along and naturally they are the most feared as compared to numerous other diseases, which do not cause a fatal blow to man. They come just as a warning signal to man to make him aware ready for the inevitable. Scientists and doctors are today busy at least in postponing the event if for the time being they can’t uproot and eliminate it. Notwithstanding the partial success in pushing Death back a little, there is absolutely no chance of success. The ,law of physical degeneration and regeneration is irrevocable.
Now the million dollar question seeking an affirmative answer is: can death be conquered? My answer to this question is in the affirmative. If you cross question me and ask : have you conquered death? My answer again is in the affirmative.
When I make this unbelievable bold claim I am simply restating and re-writing which is already written in our scriptures.I am simply sharing an experienced truth ANUBHUTI as a common man ( not saint, ascetic or SANYASI) with the common man.
Before we talk whether death can be conquered or not, let us try to understand
what is meant by death. In common parlance death means complete break down and stoppage of human machine. Or cessation of blood circulation in the body.
For most people the end of body is the end of everything. Those who think like that before the bodily or physical death, for them there is no escaping from death. Only understanding the principles of spiritualityand putting these principles into practice can help one in scoring a victory over Death.It is a paradox that in order to conquer Death you have to experience a kind of living Death before your body leaves you. With constant practice one can learn to separate the two components of a human being, the physical and the non physical. There is no need of any kind of meditation, DHAYAN . In a place of solitude , your home or in the company of open nature try to let loose your body , make it so passive that it may gradually lapse into SHAV ASAN (posture of a dead body).As you practise this thing keep your consciousness focused on the inner world. Get lost in the inner world so much that you may become totally unaware of your body. It will serve dual purpose, you will experience self realization or ATAM SAKSHTKAR, a pure self that is nameless, formless, shapeless because all these things have been left behind with the body.
The separation of physical (body)and non physical ( Braham, soul,consciousness, mind,memory,intelligence,etc) aspects of oneself may not be attained in one sitting. Depending on the will power,determination and faith, it may need several attempts to attain this state, and some times the attainment may be partial. Once it is attained the repetition becomes easier. As soon as you have mastered this technique of being your non-physical self, the rest will begin to happen of its own. This non physical aspect of yours is real “YOU” or your real “I”.New visions, realities,horizons and hitherto unknown facts will begin to unfold themselves. You will also begin to see clearly what is meant by self-realization or ATAM SAKSHATKAR. The meaning of death will not only become clear but you will experience in reality what people around you consider DEATH. It will be a kind of rehearsal in dying. If you are successful in traveling up to this point, the journey ahead is easier and smooth. By and by it will become your second (rather first) nature to live like that. The idea of Death will never enter your mind, and it will surely be the Death of Death for you.Notwithstanding your body being in tact you will begin to live like a floating spirit or for all practical purposes you will have the ANUBHUTI of being in a subtle body. This experience or ANUBHUTI will completely transform you and it will be your Victory over Death.
