Enlightenment is a privilege for every living being in this Universe. However, enlightenment (Self-Realisation) can be attained only when in a human life form. That is why human birth is considered extremely auspicious.

“The essence of human life is to come into one’s nature of the Self (Soul), get awakened and remain only in ‘Self’.”– Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, founder of Akram Vignan.
Enlightenment means to become free from the worldly suffering and experience deep spiritual bliss on knowing our real Self - this is the initial step towards full enlightenment.

We undergo suffering on account of the karmas we have bound in the past. It is only in the human life form that one binds karmas. In the human form, one causes new karmas and also experiences the effects of past karmas; whereas beings in the other life forms only experience the effects of karmas they had bound when in human life.

Based on the types of karmas, good or bad, bound when a human, one secures a new birth in any of the four major life forms and suffers its consequences:

●If one has lived their entire life for others to the point of putting the happiness of others above their own, one gains next birth in the celestial realm
●If one has a moderate mix of both good and bad karmas, then one’s birth will be as a human being again
●If one has bound severe bad karmas, then one’s next birth will be in the animal kingdom
●Finally, if one has spent their entire life inflicting pain and suffering onto others and further takes pleasure in doing so, one has secured a place in Hell.

So depending on what type of karmas one has accumulated in human life, one’s future birth is determined. Then, after suffering the consequences, one comes back to human life and once again binds new karmas for a future life – thus the cycle continues…

However, if one does not bind any new karma in their current life and merely finishes off all the old karmas, one can attain liberation i.e. freedom from the cycle of birth and death. But this can happen only after full enlightenment!

Enlightenment is possible right here, right now…
Enlightenment or freedom from bondage of new karmas begins when one has attained the Knowledge of the Self. This knowledge can be attained only in human life form. Through this knowledge, one understands that really ‘who am I’ and also comprehends the science of ‘who is the real doer’ in this world. When this knowledge is firmly established into our understanding, we are released from charging new karmas, and all that remains then is to finish off our pending old karmas and attain ultimate liberation…

To conclude: Every living being is in its journey towards liberation and is entitled to experience enlightenment at some point of time for sure. However, enlightenment can happen only when the living being is in human life form and he acquires Self-Realization from the Living Enlightened One.

Self-Realization is a passport to freedom from the perpetual cycle of karmas which leads to the final destination of liberation. And an Enlightened person having the divine powers to enlighten others alone can help us attain Self-Realization.

Today, we have amidst us such an Enlightened being who can grace us with Self-realization and help us attain enlightenment in just two hours only (there is no cost whatsoever for this is divine grace)!!! This illustrates how fortunate we are to have been born as a human being right now when we can attain enlightenment and set ourselves free from the bondage of karma that leads to suffering.

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
