Sages who have tasted it say:

• No special powers are acquired.
• No riches, recognition, fame awaits you

Yet! Seekers all over the world are desperate to get it.

They indulge in various practices (Sadhanas) like, meditation, vipassana, yoga and quite a few punishing routines etc. and even travel continents for that “Bang” moment.

In Marathi there is a saying – “Unless you die, you can’t see Heaven”

Is this similar?

After Enlightenment what remains is:

• The Mind Body Apparatus (MBA)
• The World around you
• The awareness of I AM – I exist
• Peace & Harmony

Even Lord Buddha has declared that – “Samsara (the phenomenal life) and Nirvana are not different”. However, the all important “Me” – the Doer is lost for ever.

There is truly no one to enjoy the Enlightenment.

SHOULD YOU EVEN CARE???

Beautiful. There is no one to get enlightenment

There is certainly someone/something there to enjoy ‘enlightenment.’ The REAL you! Just not the “me” you THINK you are. Aka you don’t disappear, you are more you than ever through enlightenment, just all that isn’t truly you falls away.

Let us imagine that we have four senses instead of five
Then we are granted, by divine grace the fifth
Now multiply the ecstatic exuberance thousand fold
Get it?

Love & Light
