IF ONE STOPS A TYPE OF SIN, ALL SINS OF THAT TYPE CANCELLED

[April 23, 2017] Prof. Bhanoji Rao (F/O Kishore Ram) asked the following Questions:

1) Jesus preached right spiritual knowledge upto the age of 32 years. Later on, His life ended abrupt. Had He lived more, the program might have been completed. What is your opinion on this point?

Swami Replied: Whatever quantum of Spiritual knowledge was preached by Jesus, it was as per the divine plan only. The knowledge preached by Jesus was planned as the prescribed first part of divine knowledge to be preached by Jesus. The extension of spiritual knowledge by disciples after Jesus was also as per the divine plan of God only. In the case of divine people like Jesus, there is no question of abrupt ending of the divine program...

All Worldly Bonds Unreal And Superimposed On Single Real Bond Of Any Soul With God

[February 24, 2016] Questions from Shri Anil: 1) If Jesus was God, why did he say in John 20:17: "I'm ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God"?

Shri Swami Replied: A human incarnation is a two component system appearing in single phase. Sometimes God directly speaks and sometimes the human being component speaks directly. Both the speeches are expressed through the voice of the human being only. Hence, you cannot distinguish the speaker through His inherent and characteristic voice. You have to differentiate the two speakers by the context of the statement only. When Jesus said that He is truth...

Totally Surrendered Soul Need Not Have Knowledge Of Good And Bad

[February 03, 2016] Padanamaskarams Swamiji,
I would like to submit two questions to You.
At Your Divine Feet.
Nikhil

1) Why does God warn Adam and Eve to not eat the fruits of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?

Shri Swami Replied: If you bring the contents of one of My previous messages, I told that God created human beings in the beginning of the first phase of creation (Kruta Yuga), in which all the human beings were just following the instructions of God like the robots following the programme fed in to the machine heads. In such stage, there is no freedom of soul. All the instructions from God...

Confluence of Christianity and Hinduism

These discourses will bring a co-ordination between Hinduism and Christianity. The messages of a Hindu saint like Swami Vivekananda have spread in Christian countries. The messages of Christianity have spread in India. Thus there is a broad-minded brotherhood between Hinduism and Christianity. The tolerance of Hindus and the love of Christians are the reasons for such a bond of brotherhood. Spreading of these special discourses among your Christian friends will strengthen the feelings of brotherhood and love, which is the aim of Swami. When people following the two religions are mixed with love that means the two religions are mixed. Religion means only the people following those religions and therefore the scriptures can also be mixed and correlated.

God's Guidance

Approaching God: The direction from God is always true. But then how to approach formless God? If you ask God, He will not reply from the sky. If you approach God in form, it must be human being only because only human form can reply. But in which human form God is present? God is present in a particular human form. Even some human beings in which, God is not present are also stating that they are God. The actual human incarnation some times is keeping silent, some times says that He is God and some times says that He is not God. Arjuna asked Krishna for direction. But Krishna may be or may not be God. Therefore, even though Krishna is preaching about the direction, Arjuna did not believe blindly. He asked questions at every stage and analysed the direction given by Krishna. Taking benefit of doubt, he considered Krishna as a human being only and discussed with Him at length and in depth.

Common Basis

[A Hindu devotee asked: The conversion of one religion to another religion is frequently happening Between Hinduism and Christianity, what are the reasons for this? Following is Swami's reply for the question.]

Hinduism is a mother religion and Buddhism is its off spring. Similarly, Islam is a mother religion and Christianity is its off spring. Buddhism went out of India crossing the borders and thus Hinduism is the mother without its child, Islam does not allow Christianity to come near and thus it is a child devoid of its mother's love. Therefore, both Hinduism and Christianity are intensively and quickly Attracted to each other, Swami Vivekananda was appreciated by Christians In the Chicago city and you can find lot of Hindus in India are converted Into Christianity, this shows that there is a special attraction between these two.

Enriching Christianity

True Love: If a Christian loves another Christian as his brother, there is no greatness in it. Similarly, there is no greatness if a Hindu loves another Hindu as his brother. The greatness lies if a Christian loves the Hindu as his brother and vice-versa. A true Christian must love a true Hindu as his brother and should treat a wrong Christian as an outsider. Similarly a true Hindu must love a true Christian as his brother and must treat a wrong Hindu as an outsider. Suppose you are in white dress. An outsider is also in the white dress, but your own brother is in blue dress. Based on the colour of the external dress will you treat the outsider who is in the same colour of the dress as your own brother? Will you treat your own brother as an outsider because the colour of his dress is different from your dress? You are recognizing your own brother not by the external dress but by the internal body in which your own parental blood is flowing. Similarly, you are recognizing the outsider as the outsider based on the point that his inner body contains some other parental blood. Therefore, you must recognize your real brother not by the external religion but you must recognize your brother by the internal spirituality. If the spiritual values and levels are coinciding to your stage, such a devotee is your real brother whether he is a Hindu or a Christian or a Muslim or a Buddhist.

Chain of Colored Gems

Cream of Christianity and Hinduism: [This is an address given to a gathering of Hindus and Christians]. You are the cream of Christianity and Hinduism. In course of time the devotees of other religions will also join you and make this group as a complete representative of Universal Spirituality. I wish all of you retain your identification of your individual religions. Let this group be a chain of gems of different colours. Let not the other gems be coloured by white paint so that the whole chain shall become a garland of white gems only. Let the pearls remain in the garland, which are white in colour. Let them not insist the other gems also to be coloured by white paint. A chain with different coloured gems looks more beautiful than a chain of mere pearls only. The thread running through all these gems is the Universal Spirituality. Religion is a gem with a particular colour. Spirituality is the thread that is holding on all the different gems in the garland.
