What is Enlightenment as Spiritual Teachers Say! And What Actually It is!

What is enlightenment?

All spiritual gurus of mankind say is that it is the ultimate and final destination of a man.


what is enlightenment

However, it is not the case.

With it, they completely shut down the thinking power of mankind.

It is interesting to note that these few people have been reining in the human mind for centuries.

I am in shock that for centuries these few people have been teaching the wrong concept of spiritual enlightenment to people and people have been following them blindly.

Actually, these few people have been deceiving themselves and others for centuries.

Then what is wrong with it? It is not the subject of this post. Here we are going to discuss what these spiritual teachers say about enlightenment.

Wrong part will be discussed in other coming posts very soon. So, here in this post, we are going to discuss what is enlightenment as they say.

As I have my personal experience with this whole process and now I know what is right and what is wrong with it, so I can write about it with authority.

My purpose is not to distract you from enlightenment or its benefits but my whole purpose is to make you acquainted with this whole process step by step.

Spiritual enlightenment exists but my purpose here is to explore its all mysteries on scientific and reasoning level along with mystic deepening.

I hope at the end of this post, you will know what is enlightenment as they say and what actually enlightenment is. Once you know all the mysteries of spiritual enlightenment, you will be out of it. 

Then actual enlightenment will occur. Before it, you merry go round endlessly without any destination.

I shall be very grateful to you if you share this post on your social channels.

Let’s start what is enlightenment as they say.

What is Enlightenment and What Happens in It?

What is enlightenment, as spiritual teachers say, is that a person comes back to his own original home and his original home is a soul or free consciousness that is eternal.

what is enlightenment

He comes to peace and bliss forever and it goes on continually for the rest of his life.

A person will mingle with vast consciousness. These gurus say that it is an ego-less state where ego disappears forever. Doer disappears forever and only doing left.

You are the ego and when you go into ego-less state, ego disappears and you become a witness to that ego.

You as a witness or free consciousness along with permanent bliss, ecstasy and peace left there.

Now in that state, you are spiritually enlightened as you have become soul or free consciousness that is shapeless, odorless and colorless. 

It is not merely theoretical but actually, you stay into that shapeless, colorless, odorless. Your existence becomes mysterious.

How to Get Enlightenment?

To get what is enlightenment, they offer special techniques and methods.

how to get enlightenment

There are approximately one hundred and ten meditation methods in the market to attain it. These gurus call it sadhna.

They advise to choose one method out of one hundred and ten and try it.

If it works, then it is okay and if it doesn’t work then jump to the next one. Most people pick two or three methods and try them.

These methods are prepared by these gurus and they have already experienced the results of these methods.


It is certain that people who will follow them must attain the similar results.

The Helplessness of People!

Therefore, the end of sadhana and meditation that is enlightenment has been finalized by these gurus. Most people go merry go round the techniques and methods.

helplessness of enlightenment

People start believing that their gurus are incredible. People have beliefs that it is very hard to reach the final destination that is enlightenment where their gurus have been living.

Here the helplessness of people starts.

Every person in this world wants peace and happiness. Every person wants a continuous flow of happiness so it is not wondering that people go easily after these methods and techniques.

Then a vicious circle of bliss, happiness, and pain starts. A person goes merry –go- round.

He goes around and around it forever and searching happiness and bliss on the way but it seems impossible to get permanent happiness and bliss.

Guru gives you a technique and that is why we call him a guru. He is the messenger of God.

God sends him here to uplift people who live in gloomy and pain.

If people do not follow this messenger of God, nobody can save them from the calamity of nature. People who follow Him must attain Moksha and Heaven.

It is interesting to note that here no God sends this message and only these gurus perpetuate this message among the mass.

They declare themselves the messengers of God and call it the ultimate order of God.

They write books and say that these holy books have been written by God and they are only the instrument of God.

Follow these books and it is certain that one must attain Moksha and what is enlightenment. That is permanent happiness and bliss.

It is like a lollipop dangle in front of people. Lollipop in the sense that you go after it to catch it but it never comes in your hands.

Whenever you try to catch it, it makes a distance from you. They call it a mystery. The mystery never reveals.

Get It Now

Is It Possible to Get What is Enlightenment as Spiritual Teachers Say?

Yes, it is possible but the bet is you must disappear as a mind. You as a mind is the main hindrance on the way of this enlightenment journey.

die as human mind

And you as a mind does this journey. So, it seems impossible to get rid of yourself.

Spiritual enlightenment means you disappear as a mind and become a spirit or soul. 


You will have to die as a mind. That is the bet. It is because if you are still working as a mind then you are not soul or spirit.

And if you are not soul or spirit, you are not enlightened. 

The problem is that this game continues as you cannot disappear as a mind. Your mind and only your mind wants to be immortal. 

It wants to continue and immortal but spiritual enlightenment is the death of it. 


It never complies with it.


They claim that you can disappear as a mind but they don't know what actually happens in enlightenment.

That is the problem.

You don't want to disappear as a mind but instead, you want to continue. Click To Tweet


What Actually Enlightenment is?

The actual enlightenment occurs when you understand this whole game of your mind, spirit, soul, and enlightenment. 


We cannot say that it is a beyond enlightenment state. If we say then again, another game will start.

We want to finish this game. We want to be liberated and free.

That is the actual enlightenment where all games end.

We can say that it is a complete understanding of enlightenment state where you understand this whole game completely.

That means you come out of this whole game. That means you come out of this whole merry go round.

That will be the actual liberation where every path ends. You as a mind too ends because you understand completely what this mind is.

However, now if you are on that path that is called spiritual enlightenment, it is difficult to comprehend what I am saying here.

The problem is that you will have to go through this whole path to understand it. That is the problem.

And here on my blog, I am doing all this. You can see on my blog, sometimes, I write about spiritual enlightenment and other time, I write against it.

The purpose is to make you clear what actual truth is. The purpose is to make you a completely free man that comes out of this spirituality including all this what I have been saying here.

That can seem dual but it is not. It is to come out of this whole game and duality.

    Go to a peaceful place , take a cup of tea and be free of all different disturbing thoughts and just start thinking and I am sure some very important and positive solution of your question will emerge in your mind. A person age 35 years , Question # 1. where was he just 24 hours before his date of birth. Question # 2 . Where was he just 9 months before his date of birth . If I get answers of these two questions than we will proceed further. Thanks

      Hi Taj! Thanks for reading and commenting.
      1. Answer: He was in his mother’s womb 24hours before his birth.
      2. He was in his father’s body and in his mother’s body 9 months before his birth.

        Good ; Q . What about two years before his birth date. Medical study says that whatever we eat or drink , part of it becomes blood and from blood sperm and egg are constituted. The combination of egg and sperm results in pregnancy . 24 hours before his birth he or she is in a human shape but 9 month before the date of birth he or she was in an unrecognizeable shape . Without going into detail I just ask you a question . Is it possible that all this happens automatically ? If your answer is yes than I will go into further detail later on.

          Hi Taj! Thanks for reading and commenting.
          I know where you want to drag me into. You think that a super power has been running this all and we call that super power God or Allah or we can give any name to it.
          Even then it is automatic. What you are speaking or writing is all automatic. An intelligence has been running behind this automatization.
          It is interesting to note that this intelligence too is a part and product of this vastness. Intelligence is not separate and has not a free existence.
          For example, we cannot separate a dancer, his dance and intelligence running behind it. Three are compacted, then an action comes into being.
          Our problem is we think in parts. I mean to say we make God completely separate from the whole vastness.
          This discussion demands a long stretch of time.
          Thanks again!

    Actually I wanted to bring you to the point where you are right now. Nothing is automatic . In these days a pilot makes the aeroplane to take off and when it attains a certain height than pilot put it on auto . Upon arrival at destination pilot again takes control and lands safely. Actual POWER exists that is responsible for all happenings to start .This whole universe was created by HIM and is run accordingly. Every creature is an actor who plays his role in the show. It is impossible that you just put a seed of a mango on a table and expect it to become a mango tree on the table even in thousand years. When you put the same seed under the earth it will become a tree. Have a good day. Taj

      Hi Taj! Thanks for sharing your views.
      Actually it is our ego that doesn’t ready to accept that life is not under its control.
      It wants to control life. And it is good. Nature has made this ego for this purpose.
      However we have no control on our birth and death. Nobody asks us whether we want to come here on this Earth or not? And nobody asks us whether we want to die or not?
      Both are not in our control.
      Then the how the life journey between two can be under our control?
      It cannot. It seems but it is not.
      Ego is not ready to accept it. And it is good for the between journey. It is for our survival.
      Ego doesn’t want to die but in front of physical death, it has to surrender.
      So chill and enjoy!

        Embryology is study of how a human being is physically constructed. When conception takes place one out of millions of sperms succeeds to penetrate the ovum which is only one waiting each month. Zygote is formed and than breaks down into two than they keep multiplying . Interestingly after each 40 days there is a physical change. After 16 weeks it is in human shape and inside the uterus he is alive but does not breath. As soon as baby is delivered he starts breathing. Every baby at the time of birth cries , if doesn’t he is made to cry by the delivery handlers . Importance of this is to open lungs which results in shutting down of ductus arteriosus. In case he does not cry pressure in lungs will not develop and this duct will remain open. This condition is called Patent Ductus Arteriosus or PDA which needs open heart surgery later on. At the time of birth every one of us has cried . Do we remember that action of ours? No . Due to that we have healthy heart throughout our life. There is SOME power who plans . We grow and start thinking that everything we are doing is in our hands. What about that stage of our life as I mentioned earlier. Think about it and will continue it. Have a good night.

          That is what I am saying! We don’t know what it is. We have only knowledge about it. We get that knowledge from books. So we have only knowledge.
          Similarly, we have knowledge about God or Power that you say it has existence. We have only knowledge about it that we get from holy books.
          Set this knowledge aside and see what left there.
          I mean even set aside the knowledge that you have from any holy book, then see what it is.
          Then you will get the real answer.
          The answers you are speaking about are not your answers. It can be someone else’s answers.
          We need our answers. And that is possible only if we set aside other people’s knowledge and answers.
          But I know it is very difficult to set aside knowledge. It will fight back. It will not agree with me. If it will agree with me then it will be death of it. So it will not be ready to do so.
          Have you enough courage to set aside complete knowledge you have for a single moment and see what left there?

    I’m in total agreement with you on this,I believe religion has taken us in a very bad direction and these gurus don’t really have the answer they are just more aware than we are perhaps of more understanding because religion tells us what to think it actually cuts us off from our self soul and yes the gurus keep us buying their books but I believe if your trying to connect you do need to go inside of yourself and be honest with youself and at least you will be more connected than religion will ever make you feel we need to think for ourselves more we have been separate as a people propaganda hatred and racism keep lots from connection with others and I think if people treat each other as family this would be a perfect start for any enlightenment you might receive an there are different levels of enlightenment an just because your not experiencing some kind of bliss this can be a state of mind that you can get from meditation and you can put yourself in lower state of meditation as you go thru your day at work while working it’s an awake meditation a state of mind as for getting to real enlightenment I don’t know how to get there but I truly believe we must start with love for each other drop the hate and question everything you have been taught by the capitalist society we live in and real change only comes from your actions not just the thought of loving everyone as family and respect is a 2 way street .

      Thanks Karen Williams. I did meditation for 15 years. I tasted the bliss, ecstasy. However, what I found was a wrong interpretation of enlightenment.
      In enlightenment, we become shapeless, colorless and odorless and it really happens. These gurus don’t tell a lie but the problem arises when they say that it is a separate and different existence.
      What I have found that soul or spirit whatever they name it is an extension of our mind.
      Mind does meditation and mind thinks about enlightenment. Mind goes on this way and at last, mind reaches at the final destination that is spiritual enlightenment and mind then declares that I am now spiritually enlightened.
      So, it is all mind game. It is present but the direction is wrong. Wrong direction makes you revolve endlessly merry go round.
      My effort is to tell you the right direction what I have realized if you are willing.
      However, it is you and at last it will be you who will find whatever it wants to find out.
      I can just play a role like a catalyst to increase the speed of reaction because I was in that merry go round and wasted my many years endlessly. Now I am out of that merry go round.
      Thanks again for sharing your views.

    Let go og ego and personal thoughts, become an observer, and just exist without thoughts, desires, and beliefs of self-entitlement to be a universal vessel of endless benefits to spread wisdom of the bliss of spiritual awareness that awaits future enlightened ones to continue path to serendipity. Thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom!

    Sadhguru’s definition of enlightenment: conscious annahilation of the ego.

    I totally agree with it.
