Posted on: 03/09/2021

Shri Bharath Krishna asked: For suppose if there is an Atheist who is suffering with severe problems and came to me seeking help, according to Your suggestion the correct way of helping him is explaining a little Spiritual Knowledge while doing whatever is in my capacity to solve the problem. During my last meeting with You, I asked You whether first I should speak about Knowledge or Miracles whenever I am introducing Spiritual Knowledge to a stranger, You said that first the discussion should start with miracles only. That is what attracts everyone and makes them pay attention...

Posted on: 02/09/2021

WHEN GOPIKAS CONSTANTLY ASSOCIATE WITH GOD IN ENERGETIC FORM, WON'T THEIR DEVOTION TO GOD REDUCE GRADUALLY?
Posted on: 02/09/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, the entire creation is indebted to You for enlightening us about Madhura Bhakti (Vaamaachaara). In this kind of devotion, there is lot of opposition force from society and hence, devotion to God rises exponentially. Gopikas approached God through Madhura Bhakti and God gave them Goloka. Now, we also know that constant association with Lord brings negligence on God. In Goloka, when Gopikas are constantly associated with God (in energetic form), won't their devotion to God start reducing...

IS TRUE LOVE DEVOID OF LOGIC?
Posted on: 28/08/2021

Shri Ganesh asked: Pādanamaskāram Swamiji, Is true love devoid of logic? You have said the basis of love towards both the world and God is selfishness.

WHY DID KRISHNA SING ON THE FLUTE IN THE NIGHT TO ATTRACT GOPIKAS?
Posted on: 27/08/2021

Ms Lakshmi Thrylokya asked:- 1) You told that God Krishna refused Gopikas threatening them that they will go to horrible hell by breaking the justice of Pravrutti. But, since Gopikas threatened Him that they will jump into Yamuna River if He refused them hence, Krishna has no alternative than to take interest in Gopikas.

Posted on: 27/08/2021

WHY DID KRISHNA TEST GOPIKAS FOR 2 YEARS LONG?
Posted on: 27/08/2021

[Ms Lakshmi Thrylokya asked:- Krishna could have danced in one night and the test should have been completed. Why did He dance for 2 years?]

Swami Replied:- Krishna was testing the bond with butter (Dhaneshanaa) and the bond with their issues (Putreshanaa) by stealing the butter preserved for their issues. This test continued for 10 years (5th year to 15th year) because God gave a long period of examination to see whether some Gopikas, who failed initially will rectify and pass the joint test in course of time at least. Similarly, the third test
