Who is a spiritual person ?


Practical steps  to spirituality-  section 3 -part 41

Spirituality- part 1 

                         A truly  spiritual  person,   whom  Lord  Krishna  calls  as  stitha pragya   in the  second chapter of  the  Bhagavad Gita  , is  one  in whom   all  selfish  desires  of the  mind  are  nullified,  completely  given up. . There  is  no desire  to  achieve  anything  more in life. . Such a person  is  peaceful  within, knows  what  to do and  what  not  to  do. . He  is  completely  contended with  himself.

                           From  the  common  man's  perspective  , a spiritual  person  is  one  who is  interacting  with the  world, relating  to near and  dear  ones  with  complete  peace  and  harmony, he  is  dynamically  active  in the  world. . A truly  spiritual  person  does  not  hurt  anyone  nor  does he  allow  the  world  to  hurt  him. . He is  in perfect  control  of  his  life. . He  is  the  kartha  of his life.  He  does  not  depend   on an  external  power  , a  God  outside  him to take  care  of  him.

                           When  a  spiritual  person  who has  realized  his  Self  , says  " I  am   that  Brahman" , he  has   experienced  his  oneness with  that  absolute  reality. and  that he is a part of that  Divine.  There is  no  ego in  him. . An atheist   says,"  I only  exist  " and there is  ego in this  statement  because   he does  not accept  any higher power  other  than himself. A spiritual person  is    selfless  and   peaceful .  and  contented with everything in his life.

  1. A spiritual person is peaceful within but at the same time dynamically active in the world. He has no ego. He has realized his oneness with the Divine.
