O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

(Scripture of Knowledge of God)

(Uttaraardha Charchaa - Second Half Part Discussion)

8) Bahusatphalaanaam drushaa tena vibhuutayah

Pradarshitaah natvahamkaaridaityavat.

[Expression of miracles is very important aspect of spiritual knowledge. God exhibits miracles not for projecting Himself as omniscient and omnipotent. Such intention exists with egoistic human beings called as demons. Their single motive is to project themselves through miracles and expect all the people to worship them. This is not at all the intention of God. The only basic intention is that the existence of unimaginable God must be fully believed so that every soul in this creation must have fear for unimaginable God. The essence of fear is that even if somebody after doing a sin, escapes the law and subsequent punishment here through tactful ways, he/she can’t escape the punishment of the sin to be given by unimaginable God through unimaginable ways. Fear is essential for any soul to control the sin immediately like the first aid box necessary to resist the immediate external infection of the wound temporarily. Knowledge is like the antibiotic medicine given in the treatment, which takes some time to give effect. Both fear and spiritual knowledge are essential for the cure of ignorance-wound. Another important second dimension of the same miracle is to help a deserving devotee so that he/she can concentrate on the spiritual effort. The expression of miracles in the case of God is never for exhibition with pomp and show through ego. Unfortunately, in the case of almost all the devotees, the second dimension mentioned above is missing because the devotee getting the benefit of the miracle is anxiously waiting for the next miracle to solve his/her next problem! In spite of such failure, God continues the help to devotees through miracles with a hope so that one day or other the devotee may be transformed. Even though the miracle failed in bringing a transformation in a devotee, it is not a waste since the observers of the miracle develop faith in the existence of unimaginable domain so that others are also encouraged to do good deeds through developing the devotion to God, which is the fundamental necessity to do a good deed. Otherwise, everybody will think that why shall he/she do a good deed in absence of any good fruit for it. Similarly, when sinner is punished in unimaginable way, the surrounding observers develop fear to do the sin with the concept that no sinner can escape punishment from the unimaginable God. The miracles are considered as bad by some scholars since these develop more and more fascination to worldly benefits to be attained through miracles. This is true due to practical observation in almost all the devotees in this world. But, in view of the merits explained above, the miracles are important. Every system has negative aspects due to which the system shouldn’t be totally rejected. The defects of the system must be controlled through invented ways. In the case of God, such problem doesn’t arise because God is omniscient and does miracles only in the case of deserving devotees about whom He has some future hope. He keeps silent to hopeless devotees. Another good dimension of the miracle is that it controls the growth of atheism since there are some atheists, who can be transformed into theists through the observation of a miracle as found in experience. There is no need for God to demonstrate a miracle before a panel of scientists because neither projection of self nor getting appreciation from it is required. For your information, Baba invited any scientist to come and test the miracle closely for which He never objected anybody. Every incarnation of God Datta performed miracles and never made a statement that a panel of scientists is banned to come and observe the miracle.]
