”Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.”
There is no need for salvation if life is being lived with a feeling of joy, contentment, love, and goodwill because all these are signs of salvation. But if life is being lived in sorrow, incompleteness, fear, and anxiety, and you are unable to find lasting happiness and peace, then there is no better way than walking on the path of spirituality, on the path of mukti, for this path will ensure eternal comfort and happiness. Salvation has nothing to do with death. It is not as if you will be free once you die. Mukti is not an after-death state, rather it is something to be experienced when alive. It is the art of connecting with love, peace, and nature.
”I was born into the world as the king of truth for the salvation of the world.”
It is a state of being centered in one’s higher Self. Therefore, by following this path, you can enjoy salvation while performing all worldly obligations. Even after death, you can retain the same free spirit. When the body dies in a state of salvation, then the person’s soul becomes free from the cycle of rebirth and gets absorbed in the Brahman. The Atman or soul does not die when the body dies. Only that which takes birth dies and hence, the soul which does not take birth, does not die.
Courage is a kind of salvation.
The body along with the senses, intellect, ego, and mind is made of nature, and in the state of salvation, gets separated from the soul forever. Therefore, salvation is not of the soul, but of nature which is stuck with it. Whatever we do in our life, our positive and negative actions get transformed into karmic blessings and karmic baggage respectively. Some of these blessings and baggage we experience in this lifetime and others are carried forward to the next birth, which means the cycle of birth and death continues. By walking on the spiritual path, we can cleanse ourselves of all karmic deeds and also free ourselves from the cycle of rebirth
