Atma Vedanta


Mesmerizing saga of a thinker gets shattered the moment reality strikes him. He seeks and dreams; yet there is no action coming forth from him. The thoughts are powerful weapons but when it comes to spiritualism, they become the most destructive weapon for everyone – for the seeker and for the one who has already found it. Thoughts are like castles in air; they go on getting created by dreams and are continuously shattered by the reality.

Discussion on spiritual thoughts is much like gossiping; they go on endlessly without any result. Discussion may look good as a poetic expression. Unless it is not executed, the net result would be Zero.

Spiritual development can happen only when we are able to implement the Vedanta concept in real life and that can be done only when we are ready to become a practical Atma-Vedantin.

Atma-Vedantin is capable of being human first rather than being an incarnation or a knowledgeable person. Atma-Vedantin works towards many things; each of his activity is an effort towards implementing Vedanta in true form.

 

An Atma Vedantin’s true prayer in life would be:

 

O Lord I pray to thee!

No Vivekananda created another Vivekananda

No Ramakrishna created another Ramakrishna

No Shankara created another Shankara

No Messiah created another Messiah

No Avatara created another Avatara

Why make me wait in the battlefield

For no Krishna shall tell the depth of Gita

O Lord I pray to thee

Let I be one with thee

Die and take birth again and again

For the cause of others

Heal others of pain, agony and hunger

Never feel alone with nature around

May I die a life of piety and humbleness

To  meet enlightened as the child of the Lord

Unless the beauty of Vedanta is implemented to reality, Vedanta becomes more a concept of Bhoga where the body feels elated with people touching feet and garlanding. The mind feels elated by the praise of others and the soul, in the meantime, dozes off. This is the most prominent thing you generally see all around; people who talk incessantly about Vedanta are really the cause of Ved-Anta (End of Knowledge). Vedanta is the point where knowledge ends and its implementation becomes important.
