Igniting Nirvana and Illuminating Moksha


The spirit or the aatma connects us to God or parmaatma. This nexus of "aatma" and "parmaatma" leads to the realization of the self. The self once realized makes an individual go beyond religious beliefs and hence leads to spirituality. Spirituality is not a religion, thought, state of mind, idea or belief... it is enlightenment, a spark, infact not just a spark but the fire aflame in our souls. Once ignited a person's spirit is impregnated with an influx of nascent ideas, devoid of negative thoughts and mentality.Through spirituality we can create our own nirvaana, our own paradise, our own Shangri-la and ultimately find moksha.

from what i understand and believe....

spirituality is that state of mind...when the mind is ready to understand the meaning of life...with or without the help of religion...

Nirvana is begining of such understanding...and

moksha is the ultimate result...

i appreciate ur understanding bout spirituality.....

i hope u r aware of the fact that achieving nirvana through different yoga processes is extremely difficult in this age of quarrel n hypocrisy(as per Bhagavad Gita)......

spirituality and relegion are not different in a sense that relegion means faith or principles....which one should follow to practice spirituality and achieve the absolute truth.

different relegions namely hindu,muslim etc...hav their own faith and principles in their process, to the degree which they can follow...but their ultimate goal remains the same....

and as per my knowldge nirvana or moksha or mukti all r the same...also called as perfection of life...and according to the Bhagavad Gita one can achieve perfection of life only by performing pure and unalloyed devotional service to GOD.
