How to Attain Liberation in Hinduism. Ever think being reincarnated as an ant could
be a step toward liberation? For most Hindus the highest goal is moksha,
when you are released from the cycles of rebirth and achieve unity with God. You will need Birth A righteous life Detachment
Death Reincarnation and patience. Step 1. Be born. Step 2. Live your life. If you are human, you have reached the highest
state of self-consciousness. With that comes both freedom and responsibility. Keep in mind that according to the law of
karma, your present condition is determined by your actions in the past. This means you can’t pin the blame for your
current situation on anyone but yourself. Step 3. Live righteously and strive to fulfill the
Hindu dharma, or duties. Step 4. Pursue one of the four spiritual paths to
realize God: knowledge; love and devotion; selfless action; and meditation. Step 5. Gradually detach yourself from physical objects,
desires, and stimuli. Only through release from self-interest can
you reach liberation. Step 6. Die. Hindu funeral practices, like cremation and
expressions of grief, facilitate the soul’s passage to the next stage of life. Step 7. Be reincarnated. Your soul, or true self, always remains the
same even if your body doesn’t. You’ll probably pass through all six categories
of life forms before breaking the cycle of samsara: aquatics, plants, reptiles and insects,
birds, animals, and humans. What form your body takes depends on your
desires and, you guessed it, karma. Major transgressions can send you back to
the plant or animal world. Step 8. Repeat the steps as necessary until you are
liberated from samsara. It’s believed that eventually everyone will
get there–and there’s no time limit. Did you know According to Hindu scriptures,
you can be reincarnated in any of the 8.4 million life forms until you achieve moksha.

  1. [0:45] “Your present condition is determined by your action in the past.” Therefore my action in the past was also determined my actions in another past. Thus I cannot blame myself either. This shows I do not have freewill. Bible says the same thing – “what you sow is what you reap”. If you do not have freewill then you cannot control reincarnation. You cannot control your karma. You are guided by destiny only. For more read the free book on soul theory from https://theoryofsouls.wordpress.com/
