Hi friends,

At uni we had an interesting discussion about Self-Realization--The concept of the liberation of the Spirit, So i thought of sharing it here!

It's said that Self realization is the process by which any human being can realize his real self.
And what does this real self mean? It means that our soul (atman) within our body which is the real self within every being (and for that matter every living being) reaches the fag end of its cosmic life.

The word Self-Realization is commonly used in spiritual circles, and is often identified with what is known as God-Realization.

Most frequently asked questions and their answers:

-- What do you mean by the Self when you speak of Self-Realisation? Where is this Self situated?
Answer:  "It is within me."  "I seek to know my own Self."

-- Why do I seek to know my own Self?
Answer: Because I want to live in peace.

--Why do you want Self-Realisation?
Answer: To know my own Self.

In short can be said that when a person reaches this self realization state..he/she will have a perfect balance of mind and outlook!

More info:

Now My questions:Big smile

  • Have u experienced self realization? at which age..?
  •  So How does if feel...?

Take care,

Wow wat a good topic to discussClap

This should have been the DOTW. but we already have oneSmile

Have u heard of this concept before..? Yes I have

Have u experienced self realization? not quiet, but yes.

 at which age..?hmm don't really remember, as I'm still learning

 So How does if feel...? good to learn something about life after death

Anything you want to add..? Yes Its good to have self realization, we need to understand that we're not this body but the soul thats inside us. The soul can never be harm nor destroy but the body can. Thats where reincarnation comes in. Reincarnation happend according to karma different souls( or human being) have its own karma.

Wink Have u heard of this concept before..? Well... I kinda knew it existed I guess... at the back of my mind... =]! LOL LOL

Have u experienced self realization? at which age..? Well... I guess in a way, like... since I realised im the only one that can guarantee to stick with myself right till the end... But it didnt feel anything like above described so Im guessing theres still something left... but hey, Im only 15... =] Tongue
