Tej Gyan is a way of life to self-realization. Tej Gyan means bright truth which is beyond ignorance and knowledge. Sirshree is the founder of Tej Gyan foundation which spreads the light of truth in the most simple and appealing manner to the urban world.
Sirshree answers one of the most important questions of life i.e. What is the purpose of life? He says – the purpose of life is ‘life’ itself. It is not very easy to understand at first as most of us are brought up by making us aim for the most lucrative careers life medicine, law, engineering etc. At first this seems to be the ultimate goal. But in the later stages we understand that it is not true. Some go a bit further and say that if we have to become successful we have to be good at that which we have chosen as our career or path of life. But even this answer seems inadequate when we delve deeper into the spiritual realms of our own life.
Sirshree says that the ultimate goal of life is to know the life within ourselves which can be termed as Life, Consciousness, Self etc. It is this living consciousness which makes our body move and take care of so many million processes in our body throughout our life without pausing even for a second. Therefore the main purpose of life is to know and have knowledge of this inner-self which keeps guiding us throughout our life. Once we have the knowledge of our inner-self we achieve a state of self-stabilization by stabilizing our consciousness in that experience.
We perceive our body as though it is us. We take our body into consideration when we talk things like ‘He made fun of me’, ‘I like playing football’ etc. But in reality it is not the body which is liking or feeling these sensations or experiences. It is the consciousness or the self within the body which is experiencing these thoughts and feelings. The body is just a medium of expression for the self to expand and live the life. Therefore to live the life and understand it fully we have to go beyond the body and shift our focus from the body to the inner self. Only then can a person achieve his ultimate aim in life.
Sirshree also talks about ‘life returning to life’. He says, there are seven levels of consciousness and one has to know all these levels completely. The seventh level is the last level which everyone should strive to reach. Once a person reaches that level there will be only ‘one’ in the entire universe. The person will experience oneness of all the beings and objects in the universe. In order to understand the goal of life in simpler way, it can be said that the goal of human life is to open up, blossom and play the game of life. This means that we have to explore all the possibilities lying within us and understand that it is the God’s game being played on earth. When we know this completely we will align ourselves to the rules of this game and hence will achieve the purpose of life.
The only delay is to know the actual purpose of our life. Once we get the understanding of this then we will not miss any opportunity which leads us to the progress on the path of self-discovery and attainment of our highest self.
