Goals make us focus. Whilst life’s purpose provides us with a general direction, our goals give us crystal clear focus on what we need to spend our time and energy on. When you have resolved on a goal, you may or may not know how to get there; but because you have established a goal in your mind, you will be determined and focused to surely get there. Many people work hard in life, but without a definite purpose in mind. And as a result, their life ends up in an aimless cycle without any definite direction.

Human life is precious; we should not waste it like this, isn’t it?

•We have travelled through various realms of births and rebirth. We’ve gradually evolved from one-sensed living being to five-sensed living being, and have been to hell, heaven and even to animal kingdom several times.
•In these countless of births, we have undergone enormous suffering at the time of birth, while alive and on death too - such torturous suffering that we can’t even imagine! Even in celestial birth, we’ve experienced a lot of mental agony on account of jealousy, competition and insults that one has to go through. And the pleasure and happiness that one enjoys there is not permanent as we cannot stay in heaven forever; we have to finish the celestial life and come back to Earth one day. So the misery experienced as celestial beings is of high magnitude too.
•After going through so much of pain, with great difficulty, we finally get the human birth. As human beings, we are the gifted ones who can gain knowledge. And we have learnt a lot of things in life so far.
But, if human life is the only one where we can gain knowledge, and we have undergone endless suffering to attain this human life, then why not learn how to get liberation from suffering forever, and make this the ultimate goal of our human life?

Liberation from all kinds of suffering should be the supreme goal of our life!
No one likes suffering in life. Yet our experience suggests that no matter what we do, we cannot escape from it either; suffering is inevitable. How do we get liberated from suffering then?

Gnani, the Enlightened One, is the one who has overcome all sufferings. He remains in such bliss that whoever meets Him also feels the bliss!!! So let us try and understand this from Him directly.

Gnani says, we have indeed learnt a lot of things in human life so far. But it is all worldly knowledge, with the help of which we develop in worldly life. But we have not yet known really ‘Who am I?’ Once we gain the knowledge of Self and learn really ‘Who am I?’ all learning ends. Due to ignorance of the real Self, we wrongly understand our Self to be, “I am John. (the reader may please replace his name in place of John)” This wrong belief is the root cause of all miseries in this world.

Any suffering is a result of wrong understanding only.

1.The biggest wrong understanding that we have is, “I am this name or body.”
2.And the other big wrong understanding is that when we suffer, we see others at fault and end up hurting them as a result.

Through Akram Vignan, the stepless path to Self-Realization, we can attain the experiential knowledge of Self, with the grace of Gnani, within just 2 hours of time!! After this, we clearly understand that “I am Pure Soul.” Our Soul is our real Self, and it is completely faultless, due to which it never undergoes any suffering at all.

But there are numerous karmas layered over the Soul. Karmas are the seeds of wrong intentions that we have sown in our past life. And the fruits of these seeds come in the form of suffering that we undergo in our current life. When we say ‘it is John’s karma, it means it is John’s fault’, and not the fault of the person whom we hold responsible for our suffering; people are mere instruments to deliver the fruits of our own karmas.

When we see people at fault, knowingly or unknowingly, we certainly hurt them through our thoughts, our words or by our actions. After Self-Realization, remaining in the company of Gnani, we begin to get liberated from these faults through right understanding. And as we progress on the path of liberation, we begin to overcome all sufferings. Hence, Gnani is the most beneficial being in this world!!!

To attain ultimate liberation from all kinds of suffering:
1.Our primary goal in life should be to first meet Gnani, the Enlightened One, and attain Self-Realization from Him;
2.And until then, we surely pursue the goal to maintain a pure inner intent to not hurt any living being, in the slightest, through our thoughts, speech or actions.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
