Definition of Enlightenment





The true Definition of Enlightenment is simple, yet extremely difficult for the mind to comprehend. This is because Enlightenment itself is beyond mind.

Enlightenment is a state of perception attained once your ego has been transcended. This state has been achieved by all of the greatest enlightened spiritual masters, mystics, yogis, and avatars of all time. The state is beyond duality and is experienced as Oneness and Allness.


Definition of Enlightenment



Enlightenment is available to all regardless of culture or religious background. It is the realization of the Kingdom of Heaven within you and is pure bliss, joy, peace, and love.

In Buddhism, Enlightenment is also known as: Nirvana, Bodhi, and Buddha Nature.

In Christianity, it is known as: Salvation, State of Grace,
Christ-Consciousness, Divinity, and Transcendence.

In Hinduism, it is known as: Moksha, Krishna-Consciousness, Reality, and Allness.


Definition of Enlightenment Hands



Enlightened Masters from all religious and spiritual traditions have also described the state as: Truth, Totality, Pure Consciousness, Awareness, Oneness, Self-Realization, Awake, I Am, I, Non-Duality, Unity, Corrected Perception, and many more.

Regardless of the name the state is the same. It is a state of perceiving the world in true reality, as your True Self beyond ego. This state is our final destination of spiritual evolution.

Science has proven that the physical world is indeed an illusion. We are all eternal souls, and we are all on the path of evolution. Enlightenment and Salvation must be sought. Seek and you will find. Look within.

Enlightening Lotus

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
