Success and spirituality: Do the twain meet?

17 Mar 2023, 22 GMT+10

New Delhi [India], March 17 (ANI/Mediawire): In this whirl of life, every human being is in pursuit of something. The chase is endless. Will it ever stop? What is everyone chasing? Do you ever get everything you want? These are the questions that New Age spiritual mentor AiR - Atman in Ravi, answers in a chat with none other than actor, medical professional, and psychologist Dr Aditi Govitrikar.

India's latest brand of spirituality is unmatched in the world. It is only in India perhaps where the twain meet - success and spirituality meld together and coexist like never before. Before his metamorphosis, AiR opened a chain of megastores in Bengaluru, way before the mall mania hit Indian metropolitan cities, and has carved a niche for himself. His is a brand of spirituality that allows you to fulfil your goals on all planes: physical, mental and spiritual.

AiR - Atman in Ravi, is a Realised Soul whose mission in life is to 'Help People Realise the Truth about Life and be Enlightened'. AiR's journey of material achievements lasted for a good 25 years, as he went from one peak of success to another. Despite having lived his dreams, AiR realised that something was missing in his life.

Things started to change when he met his Guru, Dada J.P. Vaswani. Then, there was no looking back. AiR realised the truth that he was not the body that he appeared to be, he was Atman, the Divine Soul. AiR's life has been dedicated to reaching out and helping people to eradicate the ignorance that they live in and to Realise the Truth. Based on his Realisations, AiR has published over 60 books, composed and sung about 1400 bhajans, written several blogs, quotes and poems. AiR conducts Spiritual Retreats and organises talks to help people evolve on their spiritual journey. He is a TEDx speaker, and is also invited to speak at several organisations, corporates and universities. He conducts webinars every day on Zoom and Facebook Live to help people realise the ultimate purpose of life. AiR talks about how success cannot lead to happiness; only happiness can lead to success. To him, happiness has three peaks: Achievement, Fulfilment and the ultimate peak of Enlightenment where one is liberated from all misery and sorrow.

Is there really something called enlightenment?

Enlightenment is switching on the light within. Just like darkness in the room can't be swept away with a broom, we need to switch on the light. Similarly, we are enveloped in the darkness of ignorance, and we need Enlightenment. We need the Realisation of the Truth. We need Self-Realisation, which will lead us to the Realisation about life and God.

If God exists and is all-powerful why is there so much suffering in human life?

Every human being suffers on earth not because of God, but because of their own actions or Karma. We all experience the triple suffering: the physical pain of the body due to disease or decay; the misery of the mind as it creates fear, worry, and anxiety, and the agony of the ego that causes anger, hate, revenge, and jealousy. Suffering is a choice. We can live in eternal joy and everlasting peace by being liberated from the Karmic cycle of death and rebirth if only we realise the Truth about God.

Isn't enlightenment for monks? Can a common man, with his nine-to-five job and a family achieve enlightenment?

The Realisation of the Self is called Self-Realisation or Enlightenment. It is realising that we are the Soul (Atman). This Realisation is the first step towards God-Realisation. Anyone can embark on this journey, not just monks, but people who have jobs, run businesses, housewives, students, et al. Everybody is capable of experiencing Enlightenment, although everybody doesn't achieve it.

What is Karma? Is it real? Don't we live only once?

The word 'Karma' literally means action. It is used with reference to the Universal Law of Karma - As you sow, so shall you reap. Nobody can escape Karma. But Karma works in a twin method. Our past Karma and our present Karma together are responsible for what unfolds in our life. We have been given a mind to think and an intellect to discern. Thereafter, our thoughts and feelings crystallise into action. These present actions can undo wrong Karma of the past. The body lives and dies but ME - the Mind and Ego, carries its Karma in ignorance, into another Rebirth on earth. Enlightenment liberates us from the cycle of death and rebirth.
