What is enlightenment and ascension?

In a word, BLISS.

Dictionaries describe BLISS as being:

Extreme happiness; ecstasy. The ecstasy of salvation; spiritual joy. seventh heaven, cloud nine

A state of great joy and satisfaction.

Where Seventh Heaven is: The farthest of the concentric spheres containing the stars and constituting the dwelling place of God and the angels in the Muslim and cabalist systems.

Samadhi is the Yogic term for enlightenment, and when a person can go into such a deep state of meditation that he can cause his own death, it is called Maha-Samadhi.

Enlightenment and Ascension

For me a state of enlightenment or ascension occurs when one has mastered his mind, when you can cut through the different states of mind, from alpha, beta, theta and enter delta. It is at this level of consciousness that you actually know thyself. Now lets not get too deep here, but even on a surface level look around you, pick up a newspaper, read a book, watch the t.v. Can you really see even a glimmer of genuine happiness anywhere?

How Do I become enlightened?

Very good question…Very hard answer! Enlightenement occurs through a number of ways:

  • Lifetimes of study and dedication making it easy for you to become enlightened in this life.
  • Spontaneous through near death experiences
  • Bhakti Yoga – Union with the Divine Source through spiritual devotion.
  • Gnana Yoga – Union with the Divine Source through spiritual knowledge.
  • Karma Yoga – Union with the Divine Source through spiritual actions.
