DATTA SAMAADHAANA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-15 CONTD...
Posted on: 10/12/2017
6) Anantohyam visvamitichenna saavayaviparidheh.
If you argue that let the imaginable domain be really infinite, it is not possible because it is a composite of tiny components having boundary.

[Opponent (Purvapakshi):- It is practically impossible to cross the boundary of imaginable domain or space or universe. Due to this impossibility of practical verification, the unimaginable domain after the boundary of imaginable domain is only a logical hypothesis (Yukti), but not truth that can be verified practically and experienced directly (Anubhava). Our hypothesis is that the domain after the boundary of imaginable domain is also imaginable. In the absence of practical verification, our hypothesis has also 50% probability. In such case, how can you establish your hypothesis of unimaginable domain, which has also 50% probability only?

Theorist (Siddhaanti):- If you say that the domain after the boundary of imaginable domain is also imaginable, then, there is no boundary of imaginable domain since imaginable domain is continuously extending. In that case, we have to accept that the imaginable domain (space or universe) is really infinite. If it is so, the components of universe...

DEATH SUFFERING OF DIVINE PERSONALITIES TO BE UNDERSTOOD FOR SAKE OF THEIR DEVOTEES
Posted on: 10/12/2017

Shri Anil asked: 1) Why Sita was punished by Rama in this world itself? 2) Is there difference between peaceful death and accidental death? 3) Is there any relationship between the wave nature of nervous energy (mind) and stability of mind?

Swami replied: 1) Abusing such a great devotee like Lakshmana, who never saw Sita above her feet with a false allegation that he followed her to the forest waiting for an opportunity to marry her in case Rama dies, is the most worst horrible sin. Intensive sins are punished immediately in this world itself. This is a part of main rule of deeds and fruits...

DATTA SAMAADHAANA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-15
Posted on: 02/12/2017

Panchadasha Adhyaayah (Fifteenth Chapter)

1) Datta samaadhaana sutram vyakhyaasyaamah.
We shall explain the fifteenth chapter that deals with answers to various spiritual questions.
2) Adarshanaabhaava iti chernna tulyavikalpe shreyobhaavaat.
In 50-50 probability, existence of hell in infinite space shall not be denied for safety reason.

[If you argue that I can’t show the hell to you and hence, hell doesn’t exist, it is not correct because you also can’t show Me the absence of hell in this infinite space by taking Me along with you to show the entire space having no hell. This results in 50-50 probability of existence of hell in this infinite space...

REMEDIAL PART ALSO SHALL BE PREACHED TO CONSOLE PATIENT
Posted on: 02/12/2017

Shri Anil asked: 1) A minister told that cancer is due to sin as per the divine plan. The cancer patients protested against this. What is your opinion? 2) Is death a fixed concept? 3) Lakshmana served Rama without food and sleep in the forest for 14 years. What is your comment on this devotion?

Swami Replied: 1) The concept is correct, but, the way of presentation of the concept is not correct. As a minister, he should not talk about philosophy. He should talk about the remedies that can be provided to the patients from the Government. Even a saint giving a discourse on spiritual knowledge cannot introduce this concept in such a direct way. This shows that only cancer-patients are sinners and not other patients. Scripture says that the sin done in the previous birth results in disease causing suffering...

DATTA SAMANVAYA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-14 CONTD...
Posted on: 01/12/2017
Chaturdasha Adhyaayah (Fourteenth Chapter Continued...)
25) Bhinnayorapi trayam tridashaasuchakam.
The three philosophies can be found in different individuals indicating knowledge, theoretical and practical devotion.

[Monism, inseparable dualism and dualism can be explained in terms of the worldly relationships existing between different individuals also. One life partner says that he/she and the other life partner are one and the same in any thought, any word and any action. This is perfect monism even though both are different individuals. Thus, you can find perfect monism of Shankara in two different items also. If you take father...

DATTA SAMANVAYA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-14
Posted on: 24/11/2017

Chaturdasha Adhyaayah (Fourteenth Chapter )

1) Datta samanvaya sutram vyaakhyaasyaamah.
We shall explain Datta Samanvaya Sutram, which is the correlation between various philosophies in this universe.
2) Shruterahantaashama aanukulyena vrushabhanirodhavat.
As said in Veda, you have to satisfy the ego of receiver by following him totally for sometime like controlling a running bull.

[Only one concept is explained in several ways in different times to different sets of people following the nature of human psychology. The Veda says the same (Ekam sat vipraa bahudhaa vadanti). If you teach a concept, which is totally against the concept of the receiver, it will be repelled totally due to ego of receiver. The receiver feels that if he accepts your concept totally, which is against his concept, he feels that it establishes that you are the scholar of right knowledge...

DATTA VIBHUTI SUTRAM: CHAPTER-13 CONTD...
Posted on: 18/11/2017
23) Na naastikaastikaabhyaam vijnanina eva.
Miracles are neither for atheist nor for the theist, but, only for a scientist.

[The word God is actually confined to the absolute unimaginable God only and the unimaginable events called as miracles are the only basis to identify the existence of unimaginable God. In the absence of the miracles in this world, take it to be sure that God will disappear totally in this world because unimaginable events or miracles alone give the perception-authority for the existence of the absolute unimaginable God...

MENTAL ATTACHMENT TO GOD IS REAL STRENGTH IN GOD’S WORK & NOT PHYSICAL DETACHMENT FROM FAMILY
Posted on: 14/11/2017

Shri Durga Prasad asked: While Shankara made His mother to agree for His renunciation (Samnyaasa) through the drama of the crocodile, Sri Ragahvendra Swami took the same renunciation even against the consent of His wife. How to correlate both these?

Swami replied: As per the ancient tradition and scripture, the permission of mother is only required and hence Shankara made such play to get permission from His mother as per the scripture and tradition. The mother or father is to be served in her/his old age. But, the main point is that the bond with God is greater than any family bond. If the mother of Shankara didn’t agree in that play, He would have quit the house like Raghavendra Swami. Both these are quitting the house for the sake of propagation...

DATTA VIBHUTI SUTRAM: CHAPTER-13
Posted on: 13/11/2017
Traodasha Adhyaayah (Thirteenth Chapter …)
1) Datta Vibhutisutram vyaakhyaasyaamah.
We shall explain the chapter on divine miracles as spoken by God Datta.
2) Anuhyapathaa phalabhogaat pravruttih prashnaat.
Through unimaginable way fruit is inevitable and this establishes pravrutti. Otherwise, the question comes.

[The miracle conveys the existence of some unimaginable nature thereby indicating the unimaginable domain as a proof of the existence of unimaginable God as its source. A miracle makes us to believe the existence of unimaginable power by which it is made sure that we can’t escape the punishments for our sins. It means that even if we escape the imaginable judicial system with imaginable procedures by tricks, bribes

DATTA AVATARA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-12 CONTD...
Posted on: 11/11/2017
10) Mataantareshvapi pravruttyanganivruttih pradarshitaa.
Even in other religions, Pravrutti is main and Nivrutti is also mentioned as the basic part of Pravrutti only. This is exhibited by incarnations as the main program.

[Even in other religions, the scriptures preached by human incarnations like Buddha, Christ, Mohammad etc., are related to the program of control of sins and establishment of justice so that the humanity can live with peace and stability. This pravrutti is the foundation on which the mighty building of Nivrutti can be constructed. The excess fascination to own body and limited family bonds results in doing sins and ending with miseries. God, as Father, is anxious to remove the misery of His issues. The link between sin and misery obtained as its punishment is purely based on the existence of unimaginable God ...

WILL OF GOD IS THE BASIC POWER OF ACTION THAT DOES NOT DECIDE DIRECTION OF ACTION
Posted on: 11/11/2017

Shri Anil asked: 1) People, who crucified Jesus (along with the disciple cheating Jesus) have done this sin as per the will of God only and did not commit any sin. How do you justify this?

Swami replied: If these people are not sinners, why Jesus prayed God to excuse them for their sin? At the same time, since Jesus told that the will of God, which is crucifixion of Jesus, shall be done (Ref: prayer of Jesus before arrest) they can’t be punished and hence no need of excusing them since they acted as per the will of God. This is a critical juncture developed by misunderstanding a subtle concept of correlation: There are two contradicting concepts: 1) Everything takes place in this world as per the will of God only, in which case, none shall be punished...

DATTA AVATARA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-12
Posted on: 31/10/2017
1) Datta avataara sutram vyaakhyaasyaamah.
We shall explain the points on incarnation as spoken by God Datta.

[After explaining the original status of God as Parabrahma (unimaginable God) in the absolute plane beyond world (called as paramaarthadashaa) in the previous chapter, we proceed to explain the mediated God in relative plane or world (vyavahaaradashaa), who is the unimaginable God mediated by a portion of the imaginable creation...

DATTA PARABRAHMA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-11 CONTD...
Posted on: 29/10/2017
23) Uhyaarthashabdaabhaavamaunavyaakhyeyam tat.
That creator, absolute God, is indicated by the silence that indicates the absence of any word indicating a specific imaginable item of creation.

[The Veda says that if one knows that God is unimaginable, he becomes the knower of God since he has at least known one point about God that God is unimaginable (Yasyaamatam tasyamatam). The Veda also says that if one says that God is known to him, he does not know any point about God since even one point that God is unknowable is also not known to him (matam yasya na Veda sah). The knowledge of existence of God is not the knowledge of the nature of God. Hence, the total knowledge,,,

DATTA PARABRAHMA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-11
Posted on: 28/10/2017
Ekaadasha Adhyaayah
1) Datta Parabrahma sutram vyaakhyaasyaamah.
We shall explain the points about unimaginable God as told by God Datta.

[This is the third part called as Tatva Bhaaga or philosophy of God, which consists of five chapters: Parabrahma (unimaginable God), Avataara (incarnation), Vibhuti (miracles), Samanvaya (co-relation of religions) and Samaadhaana (clarification of all doubts). This first chapter deals about Parabrahma, the unimaginable God...

GURU PARAMAPARA OF SHRI DATTA SWAMI
Posted on: 20/10/2017

Shri Anupam Kumar asked (Question forwarded by Shri P. Surya from website www.universal-spirituality.org): 1) "Shri Datta Swamiji! Who is Your Guru? Did You surrender to Him?"

Swami replied: I have three Gurus in three levels: 1) In Anuhya or atarkya or unimaginable (absolute) level, Parabrahma (unimaginable God) is My Guru. 2) In Paroksha or imaginable-invisible (relative) level, Shri Dattatreya is My Guru (energetic incarnation having Parabrahma in inert energy+ awareness medium). 3) In Pratyaksha or imaginable-visible (relative) level, Shri Satya Sai having Parabrahma and Shri Dattatreya...

DATTA YOGA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-9
Posted on: 14/10/2017
1) Datta yoga sutram vyaakhyaasyaamah.
We shall explain association (yoga) of God as explained by God Datta.

[The knowledge, devotion and practical sacrifice associated with God are specifically mentioned as jnaana yoga, bhakti yoga and karma yoga respectively. The common word is yoga, which means association with God only. This avoids the confusion to misunderstand the knowledge, devotion and practical sacrifice associated with worldly items. The word ‘yoga’ clearly gives...

ALL THE PAIN WAS TAKEN BY GOD WHEN CRUCIFIXION STARTED
Posted on: 12/10/2017

Shri Anil asked: 1) You mentioned that God underwent the suffering in the crucifixion of Jesus. Before crucifixion, Jesus made a prayer. Can You correlate both these?

Swami Replied: There are two components in the human incarnation existing in a single phase, which is the human being-component only in its phase since the God-component being unimaginable is always invisible even to the imagination. In a normal worldly example like eutectic alloy of two metals, we can find the specific atoms of each metal through a powerful microscope...

JIHAD TO STOP KILLING EACH OTHER BUT NOT TO USE TO KILL EACH OTHER
Posted on: 07/10/2017

Shri Durga Prasad asked: Padanamaskaram Swamiji: 1) About the religious fighting at His time, what did the incarnation Prophet Mohammed said and how to interpret it regarding present Jihad?

Swami Replied: I have already explained this point. The human incarnation was totally negated because before Prophet Mohammed, Jesus claimed Himself as human incarnation and was bitterly crucified in spite of His best preached knowledge and exhibition of genuine miracles. He did not oppose the crucifixion by doing a miracle since such crucifixion...

DATTA KARMA SUTRAM: CHAPTER-8
Posted on: 07/10/2017
Ashtama Adhyaayah (Eighth Chapter)
1) Krame charamam karma phaladam nityam shrutam.
In the sequence, final is practice, which alone gives fruit and is permanent as per Veda.

[The practice (Karma Yoga) is the most important final stage of spiritual effort, which alone yields the fruit. Whatever is learnt is implemented in practice to get the fruit. Knowledge, devotion and service are the three steps in sequence proposed by Shankara, Ramanuja and Madhva, who appeared in sequence one after the other. Knowledge gives the right direction...
