90) Self-Confidence:- Self-confidence has certain limits since the power of self also is limited. Any human being can lift a stone having a certain range of weight. A human being having lowest limit of self-confidence (under-confidence) can lift the stone having lowest limit of weight range. By improving self-confidence, the human being can lift the stone having highest limit of weight range. This is the maximum limit of self-confidence...

Deep Sleep of Human Incarnation:- Deep sleep of human incarnation exists as in the case of any ordinary human being. There is no difference between the human being and human being component of human incarnation. For a human being, in deep sleep, awareness doesn’t exist since awareness is absent, in which the soul is only inert energy called as Praajna (means pra=totally, Ajna=ignorant). In the dream state, the soul (awareness) exists...

BRAHMANA IS THE PERSON LEADING SOCIETY TOWARDS GOD THROUGH SPIRITUAL PREACHING
Posted on: 09/06/2018

Shri Hrushikesh asked:- Dear Swami, The opponent Mr. Raghavender Rao condemns that fact that Women and Shudras are not eligible for Upanayanam. Below is the dialogue between me and opponent. Kindly look in to the same and enlighten us with your holy words.

[Hrushikesh: I said Śūdras, women, and Dalits are definitely eligible for upaṇayanam?...

Swami Replied:-

A) ‘Upanayanam and Gaayatri’:- Your opponent has not given any argument on this except saying that this is not accepted by Vedanta-Sutras and commentators of Vedanta. Without logical analysis, we can’t accept any portion of any scripture since there is every possibility of insertion by some selfish people...

(Following song was sung by sages and angels standing in the sky)

4)  O cowherd lady! Look up in the sky,

Sages and angels are praying you.  

If you are not reaching Dwaaraka from Brundaavanam,

Life-night of Lord will face Sunrise, divine work stops...

SOUL IS FEMALE IF IT ERADICATES EGO AND SURRENDERS TO GOD FEARING FOR SIN IRRESPECTIVE OF GENDER OF BODY

Shri Balaji asked:- Kindly clarify on the Ashtapathi composition. Many people seem to enjoy the recitation and music, also with faith and devotion, but without necessarily knowing the meaning of the verses...

Swami replied:- Ashtapadis are written in Sanskrit and the knowledge of the song is in different angle, which is towards the real development of spiritual devotion. The angle of music of the same divine song is different, which is just for temporary happiness due to sweetness of music. If the knowledge of the song is received, it generates devotion and devotion leads to practice...

NO SOUL IS EITHER GOD OR PART OF GOD
Posted on: 07/06/2018

Shri Gangaiah Garu (Advocate in Guntur, a scholar of Gita and Upanishats) asked:- The souls are said to be sparks of God. Why shall God create this universe so that the soul has fallen from divine state to this state of difficulties and tensions?- Several people comment like this. What is the effective answer for this?

Swami replied:- The Veda says that we are sons of God (Amrutasya putraah). Ramanuja said that we are sparks from the God-fire, which means that we are the sons of God. All these statements are only to encourage us in spiritual effort to become sons of God. God did not call every human being as son of God and He called only Jesus as son of God. Everybody didn’t say that he is God Shiva except Shankara...

Past, Present and Future:- In worldly matters, you must not brood over past and must concentrate on present and future only. Of course, analysis of past is useful in learning practical lessons and for this purpose only, the department of History has practical value in educational institutions. Analysis of past is useful in examining your spiritual efforts also. In spiritual field, before God, you must always remember past and shall not touch your present and future. This means that you must remember always the past favours done by God to you and express gratefulness to God...

SHRI DATTAGURU BHAGAVAT GITA: PART-3 (CHAPTER-12)
Posted on: 04/06/2018

Disciple of Datta (Datta Swami) spoke:- 1. O divine preacher! People in this world are always fond of happiness to be achieved from the relief of worldly miseries. In such case, how these people will approach You on hearing that You are giving further miseries to them in the form of severe tests? They will naturally approach You in other divine forms only with a view that they will be relieved from miseries if such divine forms are worshipped...

Songs of God Krishna On Cowherd Lady

[Once, Swami was explaining the devotion of Gopikas (cowherd ladies) to God Krishna quoting the Bhagavatam. Some devotees told Swami that the devotion of Gopikas is marvellous after Krishna leaving Brundavanam and settled in Dwaaraka. Swami told “we are seeing the devotion of Gopikas only, which is just a wave in the infinite ocean of the love of Krishna towards Gopikas. Since the love of Gopikas to Krishna is finite, it is expressed in the Bhagavatam. The love of Krishna towards Gopikas is infinite and hence, couldn’t be expressed by anybody. Nobody knows how much agony was undergone by God Krishna in Dwaaraka...

Classification of Creation:- Subtle energy or Mulaprakruti is the root source material of creation, which was created by unimaginable God through unimaginable link (mechanism). This original subtle energy is modified into matter and awareness through different imaginable mechanisms under the guidance and superpower of the unimaginable will of unimaginable God. You can say that God is intellectual cause (Nimitta) and subtle energy is the material cause...

Original Preachers:- Original preachers are always incarnations of God. They were not very much worried about the truth of knowledge. They were always worried about the change of a bad situation in which the innocent souls were caught. Unless the situation is changed, souls existing in that situation can’t progress further. In order to change the situation, the preachers did not mind to twist the true concepts. The followers without understanding the background of the original preacher follow their twists strongly...

Positive View of God:- Positive view of God must be understood by deep analysis so that you will say that every item created by Him in this world was created for a positive purpose only and not for any negative purpose. God is omniscient and will not create anything with negative view. Some things have become negative due to their misuse by human beings and are stamped as negative. For example:- i) Sex was created with lot of emotional intensity and the view of God is creation of future humanity through legal sex...

62) Service Needed:- Service needed is important whether you do it to God or to humanity (‘serve the needy’). Needed materials shall be served to poor if they are not reformed through spiritual knowledge since money may be wasted through vices by which they are caught. When you serve your preacher, who is not having vices, you can serve him with money since you don’t know his actual need. When God Rama is sitting...

 53) Donation of Food:- Donation of food to a hungry person is the justice of emergency (Aapat Dharma) and analysis of deservingness of receiver shall not be done here. Even the life of an atheist must be saved from hunger death, which is the only shame on this entire humanity. If you save the life an atheist also, there may be a future opportunity to convert him in to theist. Instead of burning oil lamps, candles, sticks etc., the money spent in such acts can be saved to protect the life-lamp of a hungry person to preach him spiritual knowledge...

Defective Beginning:- Defective beginning is always justified and God also encourages the devotee without finding fault with the defect. But, to sit in the defect only throughout life is not justified. A child is given chocolates to go to school and the child is not criticized for its lack of interest in the school and for its interest for chocolates only. The defect is tolerated in view of its little age and huge ignorance in such age. But, as the child grows, the chocolates are withdrawn assuming that the grown-up child as young person must have developed...

Value of God: Value of God is generally mentioned as the highest in our prayers, which is a lie in practical light. We have given entire wealth to our issues and not a single rupee for God’s work. The value of God is not even a trace of the value of our issues. But, we mention the value of God as infinite in our prayers (theoretical devotion). Are we not trying to fool the God through our prayers when we know very well that God is omniscient?...

The Veda says that God is unimaginable and is beyond words, beyond mind, beyond intelligence and beyond even imagination. He is beyond form and formless. Earth is with form and space is formless. God is beyond both earth and space since both are created by Him. The objects with form and formless objects are present in the space. If God is imaginable, there is multiplicity in the imaginable items and hence, everybody is fascinated to a specific imaginable item. Somebody says that Sun is God, somebody says light is God and somebody says that space is God. This leads to different philosophies and religions resulting in quarrels disturbing world peace and sometimes ending in terrorism...

Caste and gender by birth must not be given any importance. Believing the gene theory in the caste, which only says that certain mannerisms are transferred in a dynasty, people confuse the mannerisms for qualities. God said in the Gita that caste shall be decided by qualities and subsequent deeds only (Gunakarma vibhaagashah). Gender is worse than caste since differentiation by gender is seen even in the same caste! Krishna is born in Yaadavas (BC caste) and the feet of His statue are washed by a Brahmin priest...
