Below slokas from the Gita are actually a bit mystical in nature:
— O best of the Bhāratas, I shall now explain to you the different times at which, passing away from this world, the yogī does or does not come back.
— Those who know the Supreme Brahman attain that Supreme by passing away from the world during the inﬂuence of the ﬁery god, in the light, at an auspicious moment of the day, during the fortnight of the waxing moon, or during the six months when the sun travels in the north.
— The mystic who passes away from this world during the smoke, the night, the fortnight of the waning moon, or the six months when the sun passes to the south reaches the moon planet (but) again comes back.
— According to Vedic opinion, there are 2 ways of passing from this world – one in light and one in darkness. When one passes in light, he does not come back; but when one passes in darkness, he returns.
Vivekananada and Yogananada, both the Yogis left their body and departed during the night time. Same thing goes for Osho Rajneesh who left during the evening.
Note: Though Ramkrishna Paramahamsa died during early morning.
Now the followers of all the above 3 Yogis believe that they attained Moksha or Mahasamadhi or the Supreme abode.
- Does that mean that above slokas actually don't make much sense?
- With general rule of probability, 50% of people are likely to get Moksha. Is it Justified?
