SINGLE CHARACTERISTIC OF GOD IS THAT HE IS UNIMAGINABLE & EXISTS
Posted on: 26/01/2016

[Answer to Shri Anil’s Question No.6 (in Message on January 10, 2016) Continues Part-4]

Scientist: 1) The cosmos has certain parameters of its definition like boundaries, composite of finite particles etc. What are the characteristics that you can attribute to your unimaginable domain? Even for an infinite item, we can say that it should be homogeneous without internal gaps having no boundaries around which space can exist....

Shri Swami: 1) Our single characteristic of God is only that God is unimaginable and exists. We are not bothered about finite or infinite concepts, which require spatial dimensions. We are involved in this discussion to prove that the cosmos or space is finite in the absolute sense...

ULTIMATE CAUSE CANNOT BE INERT
Posted on: 22/01/2016

[Part-2] Shri Anil asked: In the context of your answer to my previous question No. 6 (in Message on January 10, 2016), why should not we treat the energy itself as the infinite?

Shri Swami Replied: In such case, there is no God and this energy itself stands as infinite without its cause. This energy itself stands as the ultimate cause. The energy creates other forms like matter and awareness, in association of which, this whole cosmos is created with different items. Energy maintains and dissolves the cosmos finally and this is acceptable. The energy becomes the ultimate...

COSMOS BOUNDARY GOT IMAGINABLE ON ONE SIDE & UNIMAGINABLE ON OTHER SIDE
Posted on: 10/01/2016

[2016-01-10]  Reply From Shri Datta Swami to Questions from Mr. Anil: 6) God exists at the boundary of the universe. However one can never reach the boundary. That means that God is not achieved. Then atheist may argue that since he is not reaching the boundary practically then God will not even exist there at all.

Swami Replied: The boundary means one item on one side and the other different item on the other side. Boundary of the ocean means water on one side and the different soil on the other side. If on both sides water alone is present, it is no more the boundary of the ocean. If soil alone is present on both sides...

GOD CANNOT BE SHOWN THROUGH PERCEPTION
Posted on: 03/11/2015

Padanamaskaram Swami; An atheist commented on Swami's knowledge as below. Bold sentences are Quotation from Swami's message, below which his questions are given. Kindly enlighten with us with Your response.

Questions from: Soluresk Dianar Turissmont (TuryCury)

Quote from Swami's message: 'Science means the perfect unbiased analysis of all the items and concepts of the imaginable creation.'

1) Objective perfection is unachievable because objective perfection is an unrealistic concept. Also, How do you know that everything was Created and wasn't just brought into existence by quantum fluxuations and energy?

Shri Swami: Whether the object is perfect or imperfect is determined by the perfect scientific analysis. Even if the object is imperfect, it is decided as imperfect by the scientific analysis. The imperfection may lie with the object but not with the analysis. We do not say that world is unreal and henc...

IMAGINABLE QUALITY CAN NEVER ENTER UNIMAGINABLE GOD
Posted on: 07/10/2015

[Replies to Dr. Nikhil's Enquiries] Shankara stated that God has no attributes (Nirguna). Ramanuja said that God has all the good attributes (Saguna and Kalyanagunavishishta). Both these statements look contradicting each other. But, if you analyse carefully, both the statements are one and the same. The relationship or association of even a rigid quality with God is always external like the yellow thread of a married lady. The yellow thread is only externally associated and can be separable very easily. But, the yellow thread is never separated...

ABSOLUTE TRUTH EXISTS ALL THREE TIMES
Posted on: 05/10/2015

Shri Anil asked: How can you say that God is non-existent (Asat)?

Shri Swami Replied: In the Gita, God Himself said (Sadasat chaahamarjuna) that He is not only existent (Sat) but also non-existent (Asat). I will just give a tautology of Sat and Asat to be applied not only to God but also to the world. The Gita says that God is both existent and non-existent. In the Gita, elsewhere also, same point is stated that God cannot be told as either existent or non-existent (Nasat tat naasaduchyate) Simultaneously, the Veda says that this world is existent...

GOD NOT TO BE CRITICISED IF CREATION IS GOOD
Posted on: 30/09/2015

Dr. Nikhil asked: God is completely fulfilled and contented completely as said by the Veda (Purnamadah...). How can there be boredom in His case? It is a superimposition of the concept of this imaginary domain on Him, which cannot fit in the unimaginable domain.

Shri Swami replied: God is fully contented as said by the Veda elsewhere also (Aptakamasya kaa spruhaa?). The Gita also says the same (Na me parthaasti..., Naanavaaptam...) that there is nothing to be obtained or not obtained. Yet, God keeps Himself engaged in work (Varta evacha karmani—  Gita). Now, the point is that if somebody is bored due to lack...

PROPERTIES OF HUMAN BODY NEITHER DISAPPEAR NOR AFFECTED WITH ENTRY OF GOD
Posted on: 29/09/2015

Shri Ajay asked: Shri Shirdi Sai Baba is not liked by some traditional Hindu priests for His non-vegetarian food and the habit of smoking through the pipe called Hukka. Please explain this point.

Shri Swami Replied: The habit of non-vegetarian food was a created story by non-vegetarians to have the support from Baba for their sin. Of course, the divinity has no link with the food habits and external culture. Shri Rama, the Lord in human form, was also a non-vegetarian. Shri Baba used to supply the non-vegetarian food for the non-vegetarian guests. Even Jesus and Mohammed...

NERVOUS SYSTEM ABSENT IN GOD
Posted on: 22/09/2015

[Back Ground: Dr. Nikhil’s Questions] Shri Anil asked: You said that there are three types of wishes: 1) Zero wish in which the mechanism and material are unimaginable, 2) First wish in which mechanism is unimaginable but the material is imaginable and 3) Subsequent wish in which the material and content are imaginable. Is third type of wish, the wish of God?

Shri Swami Replied: You have asked very sharp question. Your intellectual potential is very high because you hail from the native place of Adi Shankara in Kerala state! I have classified these wishes based on the structure of wish...

IMAGINABLE & UNIMAGINABLE CO-EXIST IN MIRACLE
Posted on: 14/09/2015

[Replies to Questions of Dr. Nikhil] ‘Tat Sat’ is the Vedic statement, which means that ‘that exists’. The word ‘that’ is a pronoun about which no detail is known except its existence (Astityeva... Veda). The pronoun does not give any knowledge of that. For the details to be known, a noun follows it. When we say ‘that horse’, the pronoun ‘that’ indicates only an item existing there and the noun ‘horse’ gives all the details of that. Mere pronoun does not give the knowledge of the item. Therefore, the word ‘that’ only gives the information about the existence...

GOD SANCTIONED PROCESS OF CREATING IMAGINARY WORLD
Posted on: 04/09/2015

1. What is the problem for You if I say that the first wish of God to create the world is a ‘zero’ wish (the background and content material are unimaginable)? Then, subsequently, the first creation appeared, which is the inert energy. By this, the first creation need not be first wish.

Shri Swami replied: There is no problem at all in your proposal provided this creation is not the wish of God. If you take the real world, every item in the real world and its production is not the wish of anybody. But, if you take your own imaginary world, every item of the imaginary world is a wish. When this real world...

GOD CREATED ENERGY & AWARENESS, WHICH ARE ABSENT IN HIM
Posted on: 03/09/2015

[Replies to Dr. Nikhil’s Questions] You need not separate the unimaginable domain and imaginable domain in the aspect of differentiating the farmer as the property of God and latter as the property of the individual soul. Both domains are the properties of God only. The individual souls being part and parcel of imaginable domain also become the property of God. The unimaginable domain is different from the imaginable domain...

SPONTANEOUS TENDENCY OF UNIVERSE IS TOWARDS IRREGULARITY
Posted on: 03/09/2015

[Replies to Dr. Nikhil’s Questions] We are standing in the imaginable domain and we are part and parcel of the imaginable domain only. We can never enter the unimaginable domain. What all we speak is spoken by us standing in the imaginable domain only. We can speak about the unimaginable domain based on the scripture, which is also an authority (Shabda Pramana) of knowledge. Of course, this authority is based on the inference...

CONCEPT FROM GOD WILL PASS THROUGH ALL ACID & FIRE TESTS
Posted on: 28/08/2015

[Replies to Dr. Nikhil’s Questions] Any concept coming from even the human incarnation should be analysed without any consideration because the human incarnation is two-in-one system. We do not know whether God is speaking or the human being is speaking because the incarnation is one phase with two components i.e., God and human being. We are not sure whether the God-component is speaking or the human-being component is speaking. Therefore, assuming all the speech of human incarnation...

LOGICAL ANALYSIS RUNS SIDE BY SIDE DURING EXPLANATION OF SCRIPTURE
Posted on: 18/08/2015

Dr.Nikhil asked: Padanamaskarams Swamiji, I have a question to submit at Your Lotus Feet. My intention is not criticism at all but it is to contribute in my limited way to the propagation of Your Divine Knowledge. I know that divine knowledge spreads due to divine will and not by efforts of humans like me. But I also believe that everything...

Shri Swami Replied: 1) I appreciate you very much since you are responsible for the elaborate analysis of the concepts-precious stones (Ratnams or diamonds), which are hidden in Me in My brain, which is a ocean of spiritual knowledge. This ocean is the component of God by name Dattatreya. I am only a human-being component like you...

FIRST WISH AND CREATION NOT DIFFERENT
Posted on: 09/08/2015

[Part-1] (Answers to the questions of Dr. Nikhil sent through E-mail under head line “Background of first wish is unimaginable God” etc.)

(To be Studied Very Slowly with High Alertness and Lot of Patience)

Introduction Before Clarifications

1) First, we have to accept that any item of creation at any stage is only the divine will (wish) of the unimaginable God only. The quotation from the scripture for this is that all this creation is only the will of the God (Ichcha Maatram Prabhoh Srustih). Hence, the creation is only His will at any instance of...

CREATION IS IMAGINABLE PHASE
Posted on: 17/07/2015

[Fourth Part of Dr. Nikhil’s questions] More clarification about 1) the classification of inertia and awareness and 2) the concept of freedom given by God to human beings is projected here in detail.

Both inertia and awareness are the two sides of the same coin of energy, which is created by God in the beginning. Inertia is inherent nature of the energy and hence the energy is called as inert energy. Awareness is a specific work function of this inert energy and is given separate place due to its special specific status. The computer system working in a robot can be called as almost awareness...

ADVAITA REDUCED TO SPECIFIC CASE OF INCARNATION
Posted on: 15/07/2015

[Third Part of Dr. Nikhil’s Questions] We can conclude all the above discussions by categorizing the whole subject in to three phases.

Unimaginable Phase: The existence of unimaginable entity can be noted in two ways: 1) the unimaginable boundary of this infinite universe is a standing proof for the existence of unimaginable entity. If you reach the edge of this imaginable universe, you must find something, which is different from imaginable phase. Beyond the edge of this imaginable universe, if you find again imaginable...

BACKGROUND OF FIRST WISH IS UNIMAGINABLE GOD
Posted on: 30/06/2015

Dr. Nikhil asked: “If space itself is God's awareness, how can God's wish charge it? How was the wish generated? God's awareness must precede space. God's awareness should come first. His wish should come second. Space should come third. Then His wish can enter space but His wish being not different from Him means that God Himself enters space. It becomes a case of homogeneous entry. Without homogeneous entry, evolution of creation can't happen”.

Shri Swami replied: First I shall give the background of the topic in detail so that your questions can be answered clearly at the end. First Part: 1) God wished to create this world. This means that God created the wish in the beginning. Awareness and wish are not at all different. Even if one feels that they are different, it does not matter since both come under the headline of creation only and not the Creator. Creation means both the process of creation...

MAYA AND MULA MAYA
Posted on: 16/06/2015

Padanamaskaram Swami, Shri Kishore ram asked the following questions: Q1. I am confused between Maya and Mula Maya. In some discourses Swami mentioned God/Parabrahman is charged only with Pure Awareness which is Mula Maya...

Swami replied: Parabrahman is the original unimaginable God. This unimaginable God wished to create this world for entertainment as per the Veda. This wish is the source of creation. The creation or the world is Maya (Mayamtu prakrutim... Gita). Mula maya means...
