Philosophy relies on idea of death (imminent death) to draw people near to it.

In a utopian scenario if people stop dying naturally (very much possible in next 200 – 500 years), even then

Enlightenment propagates life beyond body. It enunciates that in absence of mind (ego, active thought), you connect with cosmic guild and continue to live forever as an energy source. Thus having a body or not having body has no impact on deeper philosophical insights.

relevance of philosophy shall not be diminished.Philosophical orators have long been talking about enlightenment, a state of mind when time and space stop to exist. This state is a state of perfect bliss where all your worries and thoughts are vaporized.

Few misconceptions about enlightenment

  1. Enlightenment is renunciation of all worldly pleasures : Absolutely not. Enlightenment means attaining true bliss independent of people,

    Enlightenment is knowledge of the fact that bliss is your basic nature and is independent of consumerist society and its by products. You are happy with out reason when enlightened.

    objects or possessions.Enlightenment means enjoying life 24 seven and NOT waiting for festivals, events or objects. Enlightenment makes all those tenfold for you. Enlightened person is in perfect bliss forever.His happiness is independent of circumstances and events.Enlightenment is knowledge of the fact that bliss is your basic nature and is independent of consumerist society and its by products. You are happy with out reason when enlightened.Enlightenment means getting to know that short-term bliss derived from objects and people does not last long.

    Enlightenment is nothing to be attained.It is already present in you. You only have to open your eyes for it!

    In
    reality enlightenment is enjoying life in its full form without worrying about outcomes.Enlightenment is joy in action.
  2. Enlightenment is very difficult to attain : No it is not.Enlightenment is nothing to be attained.It is already present in you. You only have to open your eyes for it! It is as simple as removing the curtain from your window and letting the light pour in.As simple as turning gout the switch. The real dogma is like this. If it is that simple, then why people don’t have it already ? The answer is very simple.People are searching for happiness outside their being.In relationships (aka love), in possessions, objects, worldly affairs, social prestige etc..

    You are already bestowed with perfect bliss

    .It is NOT wrong to have people who love you in your life or being ambitious or having a lot of luxury or social prestige to begin with. What is wrong is that attaching our happiness with objects, people and titles.You are already bestowed with perfect bliss.Every thing else must be complementary. A real paradox is like this.

    amount of bliss attained from any thing is equal to amount of dismay derived from their loss!

    Suppose you associate your happiness with anything, might be title, people,lover or say iPhone. The moment they leave you (are perished or unavailable), your bliss is gone! In philosophical terms of Newtons law of action and reaction, amount of bliss attained from any thing is equal to amount of dismay derived from their loss! The bliss and dismay are two sides of same coin! Thus be happy with out reason (enlightenment) and your bliss is eternal. Death does NOT changes this basic rule. Also when philosophy claims life (in the form of energy) after death of this body, where the death really occurs ?
  3. Only way to attain enlightenment is through prayer (homage) or meditation : Absolutely wrong.There are many more ways to attain enlightenment.
    • Through tantric sex : Tantric sex is most misunderstood topic in the world.People associate it with meagerly world pleasure of genitals. Tantric sex is in fact most purest form of love.

      Duration of tantric sex is between three to six hours. Starts with full body massage of partners with cuddling ,kissing, touching with feather sense, and ending in copulation.

      It
      is spiritual union of chakras (seven) of two people.It is indeed pleasurable and immensely relaxing. Techniques like ‘Yoni Massage’ (vaginal massage) or ‘Lingam Massage’ (penis massage) are well misunderstood throughout history.Tantric sex is sex done with true lover or partner and is pleasurable to three aspects of human life. Soul, body and mind. Normal sex touches only body or mind at most. Duration of tantric sex is between three to six hours. Starts with full body massage of partners with cuddling ,kissing, touching with feather sense, and ending in copulation. It is NOT two-minute rush and go noodle condom sex. The word sex is used with so much indignity in today’s era that it equals to sin mixed with grief. In tantric sex you do love your partner (penetrative sex) but it is not sex between bodies but ‘spiritual upon of two souls’. After half an hour of copulation the two souls become one as their ‘chakras’ unite.You start to feel the oneness and your thoughts start to transit telepathically. Once made, that connection is never lost.Also if you unite 

      This was the prime reason Osho was misunderstood and touted as love (sex) guru.

      spiritually with any one (though tantric sex), you can never break that bond as you spirits are one soul and only death can break them apart.We do a lot of sex nowadays but only on level of body and not even at level of mind. It seems vulgar as we are programmed to think from the perspective of our bodies and not soul and energy.This was the prime reason Osho was misunderstood and touted as love (sex) guru.

      When two become one enlightenment happens via love

      .
      I am again reiterating that only true lovers can attain enlightenment through this method.
    • Through unconditional true love (Easiest and most exciting but dangerous if your partner is ‘too immature’ to understand between the real difference between love and attachment). When two become one enlightenment happens via love.
    • Through knowledge : Means taming your mind’s queries with infinite knowledge. Buddha was enlightened this way.
    • Through observer meditation : You renounce your thoughts by observing your mind. Mahavira followed this path to get enlightened.
    • Through Faith : You can be enlightened is you follow the path of rituals and faith. Devoting yourself completely

      Hinduism and Sikhism is primarily faith-based and hence are easiest path to enlightenment.

      to almighty and becoming one with his identity is fastest and easiest path to enlightenment. Unfortunately in today’s ‘reason’ based era, this path is very difficult to start with. Meera, Kabeer, Gurunanak, Ramkrishna Paramhansa were few followers of this path. Hinduism and Sikhism is primarily faith-based and hence are easiest path to enlightenment.

      The literal meaning of term Yoga is union of mind and body. Patanajli touted this way of enlightenment.

    • Through Body (Yoga)The literal meaning of term Yoga is union of mind and body. Patanajli touted this way of enlightenment. Through various asana one can attain enlightenment in about nine month. This method involves control of breath to tame mind. Pranayama is the essence of this method. Many Rishi Munis in India and few Tibbetan monks practice this method.
