Query: Meditation... Could you recommend a system of meditation for me to spiritually progress and become enlightened as i am serious in seeking this. I have stomach ulcers and prone to infections, could you recommend something for better health.

Vijay Kumar:
Whatever you ask... most of it already exists on my websites. The more you read... a better understanding of the spiritual system you would gain. Some of my essays are as potent as the shlokas (verses) of Bhagavad Gita. As many readings... as many different meanings one would derive! It is not literal reading that matters... it is only when we learn to read in between the lines... the gist... the wisdom of the sacred Bhagavad Gita becomes clear.

You would realize meditation is only a means of reaching God Almighty. In Hindi meditation is termed as yoga! Meditation... the word was derived from the root word yoga in Hindi which means the effort of our soul atman to merge with God Almighty at the earliest. Ever since every soul atman separated from God Almighty... it always desires liberation from the cycle of birth and death at the earliest!

Before proceeding on the path of spirituality... one must have an absolute goal of life! Only when we have goal in life... do we pursue it with the bulldog determination of Winston Churchill with all eggs in one basket. Without a goal... life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean. Having a goal in life is journey half covered!

Whatever is your goal of life, I can only act as a guide! Whenever you have a query... you can always send it to me... you can also voice chat on Gmail! The journey of life is to be covered by you independently. Always remember... we have one life to live! We do not know what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel the spiritual path now!

The journey of enlightenment is long. In the human form alone God Almighty ordained a total journey of 1.1 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years) to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... the prime reason why things move so slowly on the spiritual path!

When 13 years of age I was determined to pursue God... come whatever may! 25 years thence I finally realized God in 1993 at the age of 37. I never expected to complete the journey in my present life. Mighty are the ways of God! God Almighty has been very kind to me from the beginning. Probably it was my faith in God Almighty that paved way for completing the spiritual journey!

Treading the path of absolute truthfulness... establishing absolute control over the five senses and finally the mind... traveling the path of spirituality by following the process of Neti (not this, not this) as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana... practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation... I finally scaled all barriers of spiritual life!

In the present Kali Yuga (the Dark Age) traveling the path of enlightenment is difficult... but not impossible! Fathom the depths of wisdom contained in most of my articles essays. Slowly you would realize the truth of life. It is the soul atman within our heart that is the master and controller of the body and not vice versa. It is not within the capability of the body to manifest a soul atman!

Regarding ulcers in the stomach... I can simply say consume as much water as you can! Go for a morning jog... or brisk walking as much possible! I used to suffer from acute acidity about 12 ~ 13 years back! I once overheard two students in a chemistry class discussing about diluting acid by adding more water. They were laughing over the matter how people suffered from acidity.

Unknowingly, I learnt the truth! Simply by controlling the intake of water... I cured my acidity. Since then I have never suffered from acidity even once. Your ulcers result from acute acidity that your stomach sustained. By increasing your intake of water... you would be diluting the excess acid... and slowly your stomach would heal.

Brisk walking or morning jog would greatly help in keeping the stomach fit and fine. Larger intake of water sometimes brings drowsiness... lethargy! The morning jog or brisk walking altogether eliminates such inherent tendencies! You can always give it a try... but cautiously! Never overdo anything! Do not rush up in anything... you shall get better!

God bless you in your spiritual pursuit!
