IT IS TOLD THAT IGNORANCE IS BLISS. CAN YOU KINDLY EXPLAIN THIS WITH REFERENCE TO THE SOUL AND GOD?
Posted on: 16/09/2021

[A question by Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya]

Swami Replied:- In the case of soul:- Recollecting the past memories of miseries will give lot of pain and mental disturbance to any soul. Forgetting the past miserable things is ignorance and by doing so, peace is fully obtained. Even though peace is not bliss, still, with reference to disturbance of mental...

IS AN ILLEGITIMATE RELATIONSHIP MORE POWERFUL THAN A LEGITIMATE RELATIONSHIP?
Posted on: 16/09/2021

[I read in some newspaper, some time back, that a woman killed her issues for the sake of her illegal sexual relationship. Does this example support that illegal relationship is more powerful than legal relationship?]

Swami Replied:- Gopikas did not kill their issues for the sake of illegitimate relationship with Krishna. These Gopikas gave the butter preserved for their issues to Krishna. When such pious example is there...

WHY AREN'T WE PROUDLY SAYING THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE OMNIPOTENT GOD?
Posted on: 16/09/2021

Shri Rajashekar Reddy asked: Pādanamaskāram Swami, when we have a friend or relative who is well settled in worldly life, we boast about ourselves as their closed ones.

PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ABOUT THE REASONS FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE YADAVA CLAN.
Posted on: 12/09/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, Yādava clan got destroyed at the end of Bhagavatham. Some preachers are claiming that it is because of the son of Lord Krishna named Sāmba. But, we learnt from You that the karma account of each soul is always separate. Please enlighten about the reasons for destruction of Yādava clan in which Lord Krishna was born.]

Swami replied:- The doctrine of deeds and fruits is very complicated as told by God in the Gita, but, it is always perfectly justified from all angles. All angles are different in their own nature, but, all are correlated...

WHETHER A TRUE DEVOTEE OF GOD LOVES ALL SOULS JUST LIKE CHILDREN?
Posted on: 12/09/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, I just develop hate towards people when they talk about God insultingly. It happens involuntarily. I don't like to even look at their face although they are my family. I used to think that it is right be like that because Lord Jesus also told to hate our family to in order to reach God. But, when I was discussing this topic with Smt. Devi Garu, she said that a true devotee of God cannot hate anyone. A true devotee of God loves all souls just like...

IS THERE ANY SPECIFIC REASON FOR YOU TO CHOOSE CHEMISTRY INSTEAD OF PHYSICS OR MATHS?
Posted on: 12/09/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: You worked as a Chemistry professor in multiple engineering colleges throughout Your career. Is there any specific reason to choose Chemistry instead of Physics or Maths? I personally like Physics and was wondering why You didn't choose Physics for Your career. Please ignore this question if it has no spiritual significance. Thank you for bearing with me. At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Laxmi Thrylokya]

Swami replied:- You like Physics because you are a student of Engineering since Engineering is mainly based on Physics. Chemistry embraces the study of all elements that constitute this creation. My aim to study Chemistry...

Posted on: 12/09/2021

[Ms. Manasa Pathani asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, Swami every incarnation of God teaches a lesson to learn for devotees.

Swami Replied:- The lesson that shall be understood from these two cases (Sati and Chandralekha) is that one may get emotion in the love of God in theoretical phase. But, in practical phase, along with love (Bhakti), sharp...

HOW TO RECONCILE THE CONCEPT OF KUMAARASAMBHAVAM AND YOUR STATEMENT GIVEN BELOW?
Posted on: 12/09/2021

[Prof. JSR Prasad asked:- You said that the seven sages while praying God Shiva told that there is no necessity of expression of love to God because He is omniscient (Yā naḥ prītiḥ virūpākṣa!, tvadanudhyānasambhavā, sā kimāvedyate tubhyam, antarātmā''si dehinām— Kumārasambhavam). You also told on some other occasion that the love in mind shall be also expressed as prayer because God will be pleased by expression through words. How to reconcile both these concepts?]

Swami replied:- The aim of the seven sages is to say us that since God is omniscient, He knows whether our love to Him is real or false and hence, we shall not say lies expressing our false love as true love...

HOW DID GOD GET ENTERTAINMENT DUE TO THE MAD LOVE OF RADHA, WHO IS ALSO AN INCARNATION OF THE SAME GOD?
Posted on: 12/09/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, You taught us that Unimaginable God created this creation because He was bored of continuous bliss (Ānandā) being alone. Creation being a second entity would give blissful entertainment (Rasa) to Him. Creation being different from creator generates duality. This duality i.e., God and non-God (creation) is the reason for entertainment. God gets maximum pleasure...

IN ONE YOGA VIDEO, GOD IN HUMAN FORM IS NOT REFERRED TO. PLEASE EXPLAIN.
Posted on: 10/09/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked:- In some Yoga video, I heard that either formless God or God with form present in statues and photos is referred and not God in human form. Please explain this.]

Swami replied:- The reason is that the subject “Applied Economics” is involved in this commercial devotion. If you offer some food to God and if the God is formless or photo or statue, the offered food will remain as it is after offering, which can be taken by the devotee as remains of offering. If God is in human form...

IF LORD SHIVA IS UNBORN, WHY DOES HE MARRY SATII (PAARVATII) WHO TAKES BIRTH AND DIES LIKE AN ORDINARY HUMAN?
Posted on: 09/09/2021

Swami Replied:- Your question does not touch the unborn God Shiva. Goddess Satii was born and also met with incidental death as per the desire of Satii. She was born again as Paarvatii and Parvatii became eternal being the wife of God Shiva. All these incidents have lot of divine background. Satii represents the climax devotee with lot of emotion losing God Shiva. Paarvatii also represents...

PLEASE ELABORATE HOW KNOWLEDGE OBTAINED MEANS THE DIVINE FRUIT OBTAINED.
Posted on: 09/09/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked:- You told that Pariikshit got the true knowledge from Sage Shuka explaining Bhaagavatam and the inspiration, practice and divine fruit are spontaneous and hence, knowledge obtained means the divine fruit obtained. Please elaborate this.]

Swami Replied:- Once the knowledge is obtained, the divine fruit is to be understood as obtained. Obtaining knowledge from Sadguru (contemporary human incarnation) is the 1st step. Obtaining inspiration...

WOULD MUHAMMAD TAKING PART IN SEX DEPEND ON THE TYPE OF ENVIRONMENT HE WAS IN?
Posted on: 09/09/2021

Mr. Rayy Light asked: Dear Swami, May Peace and Blessings be upon You, I very much thank You for replying to my previous question. In Your answer, You said, ‘God exhibits certain negative qualities (which are not really negative due to their unknown background) to test the faith of the devotees and to repel the undeserving devotees’. With regards to this, if You look at people like Jesus, He did not hold to any wives nor did He take part in sexual desires, or conduct anything that could be seen as a negative quality. My question is, why Muhammad...

Posted on: 08/09/2021

Smt. Priyanka asked: This question is related to a Gopika called Chadralekha, about whom we learned recently from Your discourse. You mentioned that Chandralekha was the incarnation of Goddess Satii. My doubt is, wasn't Satii Devi born as Goddess Paarvatii in her next birth, who reached Lord Shiva to become His wife? Can it be considered that Satii Devi’s soul reincarnated as Paarvatii Devi's soul? Or is it that a soul acquires a new set of qualities...
