Shri Datta Swami

Does Your denigration by Yourself proves that You are none other than the Lord Himself?

[Smt. Chhanda Chandra asked: Swami, in the last satsang, You said Yourself as an useless fellow. This kind of denigration itself proves that You are none other than the Lord Himself. Otherwise people like us are always full of egos and jealousy and we always think how precious we are. In my view, You have proved yourself as the Lord from the opposite direction also. Am I not correct Swami? May I be always at Your divine feet and enjoy Your presence in each and every part of my life. Chhanda. By Chhanda Chandra]

Swami replied:- I have already explained why I said like that. There will be some devotees, who scold the human incarnation due to ego based jealousy even though they believe in the existence of the ultimate God. I was telling that even though My human form is an useless fellow, the form that merged in Me and speaking the spiritual knowledge is God Datta Himself and so they can listen the spiritual knowledge at least. The postman may be an useless fellow, but the contents of the letter delivered by him need not be useless. Such type of devotees are pacified when I scold Myself. Instead of receiving scolding from them, who are the real useless fellows, is it not better that I scold Myself? Self-scolding is good in removing excess of pride.
