DESERVINGNESS OF THE RECIPIENT OF DONATION
Posted on: 25/10/2018

The following online discussion took place between Shri Durgaprasad (Prasad) and Shri Srimannarayana Murthy on the importance of finding a deserving recipient for donation (sacrifice of the fruit of one’s work). Shri Durgaprasad requested Shri Swami to kindly throw light on this topic.

Murthy: It is extremely difficult to locate an appropriate recipient for our donation, especially in the present dark age of materialism (Kaliyuga).

Prasad: You are right! That is why we need a lot of analysis. We should do a deep analysis to identify the deserving recipient, even if it takes a long time. Once the deserving recipient is identified...

Swami replied: The best way is to wait until you get the best deserving recipient. Lord Krishna never donated anything to anybody in His life. He waited till the best recipient, Sudaama (Kuchela) came to Him. To Sudaama, He donated a huge amount of wealth. Krishna is the highest elevated soul and all of us, being in the process of elevation, should follow His path. However, if you do not have that much patience, you must at least donate to the available-best...

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE SUBTLE COSMIC ENERGY?
Posted on: 24/10/2018

Dr. Nikhil asked: “The term ‘subtle cosmic energy’ has been mentioned several times by You. You have also mentioned another term ‘inert energy’. In what way is the subtle cosmic energy different from inert energy? It would be greatly helpful if the adjectives ‘subtle’, ‘cosmic’ and ‘inert’ are clearly defined. As per physics, there is only ‘energy’; there is nothing such as subtle or gross energy. If the adjective 'inert' is used to indicate that it is not aware, then as per physics, it is unnecessary. Physicists never assume energy to be aware...

Swami Replied:  The process of panchiikaranam mentioned in the ancient Indian texts on logic is not accepted by science. Energy when condensed, becomes matter. Matter consists of subatomic particles, which in turn form atoms and molecules. These materialized particles (atoms or molecules) on becoming close appear as gas (air). The same particles upon coming closer appear as liquid (water) and on becoming even closer, appear as solid (earth). Energy with frequencies in the lower visible...

IS SERVING GOD IN ONE’S LEISURE TIME SUFFICIENT TO REACH GOD?
Posted on: 23/10/2018

Shri P. V. N. M. Sharma asked Shri Swami the following question: “You have said that serving God in the time remaining after completing one’s worldly duties and taking due rest is sufficient to reach God. Could You please explain this more clearly?”

Swami replied: O Learned and Devoted Servants of God! The preaching of God is always meant for the majority. Apart from that, separate preaching for the minority is given individually. In this age of Kali, the majority of human beings are in the level of animals (Dushpravrutti). The preaching given to them should be confined to their journey from the lowest level of animals to the middle level of ideal human beings...

SHRI DATTAGURU BHAGAVAT GITA: PART-3 (CHAPTER-15)
Posted on: 09/10/2018

God-Preacher Shri Datta spoke:

  1. My body is made of this subtle cosmic energy only in a qualitative sense and not in a quantitative sense. Neglecting the quantitative sense, and taking it only in a qualitative sense, You can say that this entire cosmos is just My body alone. People mistake this entire cosmos to be My body in a quantitative sense also.
  2. The above concept that this universe is made of inert subtle cosmic energy alone, is justified in the sense that the awareness, matter and energy put together, form the original subtle cosmic energy. This is because, matter and awareness are just different forms...

SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE RAMAYANAM
Posted on: 05/10/2018

Shri P. V. N. M. Sharma asked Shri Swami to explain the significance of the Ramayanam in the spiritual knowledge. Given below is the reply of Shri Swami.

The Ramayanam provides guidance in worldly life (pravrutti) and it internally shows the path of spiritual life (nivrutti) also because the name of Rama is recognized as the path of total salvation (Taraka Mantra). There are three levels of souls. These levels are linked with the qualities of the souls and not with the form of the physical body. These three levels are:

  1. Dushpravrutti: It is the level of total injustice and is found in animals.
  2. Pravrutti: It is the level of total justice and is found in human beings.
  3. Nivrutti: It is the level beyond justice and injustice. It is full divine love and is found in divine personalities, called as God-Men...

ADVICE OF SWAMI TO HIS BELOVED DEVOTEES: PART-2
Posted on: 02/10/2018

The most important point is unity among all the devotees to co-ordinate and support each other in the propagation work of God. Let there be difference in the approach to the program. This difference between the devotees must be diverted to the difference in the capacities of receiving and to the difference in liking the presentation of the receivers in the humanity. The unity of these devotees shall be confined to the unity of the concepts of God Datta. There are only two items:- 1) internal packed material, which is the spiritual knowledge containing the concepts of God Datta without any change and 2) external packing material, which is the presentation of the subject...

SWAMI'S MESSAGE ON SUPREME COURT RULING ON ADULTERY
Posted on: 30/09/2018

(On 28.09.2018 the judgement given by Supreme Court came in news papers, which says that the personal relationship between a lady and gent with mutual consent is not wrong since it is linked to mind and emotion. Several devotees phoned and requested Swami to analyze this issue and give a message. Following is the message given by Swami on that issue.)

When marriage-ritual takes place between a male and female, both promise before God that both will confine to each other only without any deviation. Such promise is done on God, who is omniscient, omnipotent and most holy personality. There is no second equal personality to God and not to speak of higher personality than God as said by the Veda (Na tat samaschaabhyadhikashcha...). For any believer in God, there is nothing and none higher than God...

ADVICE OF SWAMI TO HIS BELOVED DEVOTEES: PART-1
Posted on: 30/09/2018

God Dattatreya gave Me the excellent concepts of spiritual knowledge based on which this spiritual knowledge is prepared. I was telling God Datta about certain concepts on which majority of humanity feel very much inconvenient, who may even strongly oppose such concepts and may even go away without reading other excellent and useful concepts. God Datta replied Me “it is none of your business to alter My concepts. I am not a business man concentrating on selling of My concepts to public and make profit on business...

DIVINE SATSANGA
Posted on: 25/09/2018

Dr. Nikhil & Smt. Devi phoned to Swami on 21-09-2018 at 9.00 pm., and asked the following questions for which Swami gave the answers. This spiritual discussion is presented as the Satsanga here.

1) Can you give the message on this occasion of Ganesha Chaturthii Festival?

Ans) God Ganesha is said to be creator of obstacles (Vighnakartaa) as well as remover of obstacles (Vighnahartaa). Both these adjectives contradict each other. This indicates madness of a person to do something in one time and to do the opposite in another time. Unless you find the correlation, there is no solution. A contradiction always indicates different references....

SIGNIFICANCE OF EKAADASHII
Posted on: 24/09/2018

Shri Ajay asked:- Phani told me that You have explained about the seven divine gates of God long back while sitting in the chair in the north side on the early morning of the festival day of Lord Vishnu. That was excellent. Please repeat the message given on that day by You regarding the seven gates since that message was not recorded.

Swami replied:- On that day, I was made to sit on the chair placed in the north side gate of the house and devotees prostrated to My feet with the faith that the North facing gates are opened on that pious day of Ekaadashii.

REPLY TO DEVOTEES' QUESTIONS
Posted on: 23/09/2018

Shri Balaji asked: 1) Namaste Swamiji, Kindly clarify this query on nature of God’s love. God is the father of all the souls and has infinite love towards the souls. God also has immense love for His devotees. But souls are of different levels from lowest sinful souls to topmost devotees. So is the nature of God’s love different in some way in the varying case of level of the souls? Sincerely, Balaji

Swami replied:- God is Father of all souls in this creation and His love to souls is in uniform level only, which is the maximum most. But, the expression levels differ from one soul to the other...
