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. Even after seeing the vision of Viswaroopam, he continued the discussions for a long time. This means he did not give any value to vision. Even demons can give visions. Ravana showed a vision to Rama in which he appeared killing Sita. Rama believed and wept and wanted to stop the war. But Vibhishana told Him that the vision is false and is created by the demon Ravana. Therefore, one should not decide based on the visions seen by eyes. Saturn showed a vision to Jesus in which he showed the entire world offering to Jesus. One should not believe the mind with emotion. Some times the mind is also affected by the tricks of Saturn. When Rama went to catch the golden deer Sita heard the voice of Rama crying for help. Sita decided that Rama was in danger. But Lakshmana gave the argument that Rama can never be in danger. Finally Sita was proved wrong and Lakshmana was correct. Therefore, emotional mind will mislead but not the logical and analytical knowledge of the brain. Hanuman thought of committing suicide when Sita was not found in Lanka. But He analysed and dropped the idea. Therefore, logical and analytical knowledge and discussion can alone give the correct direction. In the beginning of Gita, Krishna told " Dadami Buddhiyogam Te..." which means that only by logical analysis of brain, God can be achieved. After achieving God, logic must be closed and the heart must be opened. Sankra also told " Jnanaadeva Tu Kaivalyam".. Which means that only through divine knowledge one can achieve God. After achieving God, devotion and service will come. One cannot achieve God through devotion, because unless you recognize the correct form of God, how can you devote yourself to that form? You must select one girl through analysis and fix her as wife and then only love her and serve her. How can you fix the best girl without analysis? At the time of Jesus priests were there who always think that old is gold and past is the last word. They hate the present. They have no logic. When they arrested Jesus, there were no proper discussions and logical analysis about His case. When there were no logical discussions, He was crucified based on simple emotional slogans. His death was not justified and therefore He rose and walked out. When the soldier was leaving finally, he pierced the stomach of Jesus with his weapon. Then blood came out. Blood will not come out from dead body. Jesus was alive and He was brought down by His disciples. Then He was kept in the cave. He knew the protection of His life. He walked into India and met the king Salivahana and talked with him. His conversation was recorded in "Bhavishaya Purana" of Vyasa. This scripture speaks about the future. Vyasa wrote this long back. The verse in scripture is " Esa Putram Cha Mam Viddhi, Kumari Garbha Sambhavam, Mlechcha Dharmasya Vaktaram"..., which means " I am the son of the father of heaven. I was born to unmarried girl. I preached spirituality to Muslims". Thus spoke Jesus to Salivahana. He stayed in India till He attained the age of eighty-five years and died in Kashmir. You can find the buried tomb of Jesus there even today. On the tomb it is written "Jesus" in Hebrew language. Jesus disappeared from home at the age of 16 years. He returned at the age of 30 years. He was crucified in 32nd year. From 16th year He was in Himalayas in the association of several sages. He was a good Sanskrit scholar. He studied all the Hindu philosophy and this is the reason why the Christian and Hindu philosophies are almost similar in concepts. Krishna told that He is God. Jesus told that He and His Father are one and the same. Krishna told that He would come whenever there is necessity. Jesus told that He would come again. Krishna told that He is the only ultimate goal. Jesus told that one could attain God through Him only. All these are same concepts.
Distinguishing God in Human Form
There is difference between God in human form and human being posing as God. To differentiate both, analysis is essential like in the separation of original diamond from artificial diamond. Once you select the original diamond, no need of further analysis and you can kiss and love the diamond. Krishna was God in human form and Paundraka Vasudeva was human being posing as God. Krishna told Bhagavat Gita and the latter could not preach any knowledge. Except this difference, external dress and doing miracles were common in both. The priests believed the dead messengers and did not believe the then alive messenger. Jesus told, "Let the dead bury dead". This means the priests were dead because they always lived in the past and never in the present. Those who live in past are dead and those who live in the present are alive. This means that the dead priests will attend the dead messengers and the living disciples will attend the present living messenger. When Jesus told that He would come again, that means the human incarnation will come again for every next generation. Therefore, Christianity believes in the human incarnation that comes every time as in Hinduism. There is no difference between the two philosophies. The human incarnations of all the religions tell always the same point. The followers do not take the right interpretation and mock the other religion. The Christians criticize Krishna and Mohammed for killing the evil people. They say that Jesus changed all the evil people also through love. Then why the people crucified Him? Why they did not change by His love? Why Christianity suggests the permanent hell for sinners after enquiry? If love can change every body, there should not be hell at all! Jesus told that it is better to punish yourself instead of falling into hell permanently. Therefore, he was indicating the punishment and hell. He is never against the punishment of evil people. The L.K.G. students cannot be controlled by speech like college students. They need a strong cane for discipline. The followers always misinterpret their original preachers. Krishna tried His best to change Kauravas but as a last resort only, He punished them. Similarly, Mohammed fought as last resort only. In fact Mohammed was the incarnation " Kalki" who killed evil people with a sword riding on the horse. Krishna is Buddha while preaching Gita. He was Jesus when He showed kindness on Sudama and Draupadi. He was Mohammad in killing the demons. For protecting the good people (Pandavas) and for punishing Kauravas, He was cursed by Gandhari because of which, He died by the arrow shot on His foot. This is crucification only for the sake of good people like Pandavas. Both died shedding the blood. He took the punishment on Him to protect the real devotees like Pandavas. Krishna and Jesus were born in the similar situations. Devil people killed the children born on their birth dates. Krishna left Brindavanam when He was 16 year old. Similarly Jesus. Krishna met Gopikas again on the seashore at His age of 30 years. Similarly Jesus returned to home at the same age. Jesus quoted several scriptures of Hinduism, which were filtered from the Bible.
I am neither Hindu nor Christian. I belong to Universal Spirituality, which means that I am a true Hindu and therefore simultaneously a true Christian. I like to question the conversion being done is whether based on conversion of religion or spirituality. If it is religious conversion, I am not interested in the topic. If it is a spiritual conversion, there is no need because all religions have the same spirituality. Religion is only an external dress and spirituality is the same person present in all the types of dress. If the religious conversion is aimed at a political background by which a religion wants to increase its number and thus wants to have a single kingdom of Christians or Hindus, there is no spirituality. When Jesus thought of spreading the kingdom of God, a revolutionist thought that Jesus was aiming to remove the Roman Government and establish Jadish rule, Jesus refused to join hands with that revolutionist. If you are prosperous, the first people who are jealous are the people of your religious community only. If you are trying to convert the entire world in to one religion, the entire world will become jealous when you prosper. Is this your ultimate result? Only minority indicates real spirituality only to reach God as said by both by Jesus and Krishna. Jesus told that the path leading towards Him is very narrow. Krishna told in Gita that one in millions only can reach Him. Therefore, the minority is supported by the Lord and not the majority. Quality lies in minority only and not in majority. Jesus told that wherever two or three people associate to praise the Lord, the Lord dwells there. This indicates a qualitative minority and not ignorant majority. You say that Hindus are worried about the conversion of Hindus into Christians. But I find at least a few Christians are also converted in to Hindus. Perhaps, the Hindu is worried since both the rates of conversions are not equal. If your worry is based on this point, you are not against the concept of conversion. If you are against the concept of conversion, you should not have agreed to convert Christians into Hindus also. I am completely against to the conversion from one religion to the other religion because any religion has the same spirituality and same God. The external dress of God and the language of spirituality- syllabus differ from one religion to the other religion. Therefore, there is no meaning in the conversion. It is like two different classes of the same school in different languages. The two classes belong to the same standard and the same teacher goes and teaches the same syllabus to the two classes in their respective languages. Even if a person changed one class to the other, the teacher and the syllabus remains same. Whatever may be the religion, he remains as a theist only. If a theist becomes an atheist, then, we shall worry about him. Thus by conversion no religion gained anything and no religion lost any thing. After all, the person is in the same house of spirituality and he has changed form one room to the other. I don't know why some people are anxious about conversion and some other people are feeling for the conversion. The person does not develop by conversion. If a student changes one section to the other, his standard did not raise. Only his language is changed and syllabus remains same. Thus by conversion, one has changed the culture and language only but not the actual substance called as spirituality. Change of culture is not spiritual progress. In every language all standards are present. He should try to go to the higher standard in his own language and then that is called as academic progress. Similarly one should try to go to higher levels of spirituality in his own religion. One should go up vertically from lower standard to higher standard in his own religion to reach the goal quickly, but not go horizontally from one religion to the other religion. The former is called as progress and latter is waste of energy and time. If a Christian is converting Hindu in to Christianity, I advise him "why you are so much particular about the change in the culture which is the external religion. The internal spirituality remains same and therefore you have done only external conversion but not the internal conversion. Since spirituality in both religions remains the same, you have not converted him at all. You have plenty of money and broad mind to sacrifice. You help the poor Hindu because he is a poor theist. He is not atheist." On the same occasion I advise the Hindu also like this, "Most of Hindus are poor. The rich Hindu minority has no broad mind to sacrifice to poor fellow Hindus. Neither you help the poor people of Hinduism, nor allow them to get help from broad-minded rich Christians. Majority of Christians are rich and also are broad-minded. Why do you worry? The Hindu did not become atheist by becoming Christian. Only his external dress is changed. He changed just his shirt only and you need not worry about this." I wish every human being in this world to recognize the underlying common basis of all the religions, which is the Universal Spirituality. If that is realized, a Christian will not worry even if the entire world becomes Hindus and a Hindu will not worry even if the entire world becomes Christians. Either the Christian or Hindu should worry if the entire world is filled with atheists. Any human being can ware dress of any colour. Nothing is gained if majority wears shirts of a particular colour and if one celebrates that as victory, there cannot be more foolish ignorance than this. One should become the fish living in the unlimited ocean of Universal Spirituality .One should not linger as stagnant fish of his own river called religion. If the fish of the river is patient to travel to the end of its religion- river, it will find the above said ocean. One can chose any religion of his choice in this world. All religions are equal but not all the steps in any religion. All standards in a school are not equal but all classes in different languages of the same standard are equal. The formless God, the form full God like statues and the human form of God are gradually school, college and University levels. Hanuman is the highest among devotees and He also gained the highest result, which is the post of creator. No body can be wiser, more devoted and more gifted than Hanuman. He worshipped Rama who was human form of God in His time. In Valmiki Ramayana, there was no single reference for Him worshipping formless God or energetic forms like Brahma, Vishnu etc., or statutes. Similarly there was no single reference to Him doing Bhajans or doing meditation by mind or discussing about God using intelligence. Hanuman silently worked for the Lord and got the result also silently. Thus human form of God and practical participation in His work are highest steps to please the Lord. You should not say that all the steps are equal in a stare case, but all the staircases are equal.
