DOES THE CONTEMPORARY INCARNATION APPEAR TO THE DEVOTEES WHO DO ONLY IDOL WORSHIP?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Pādanamaskāram Swami, Till now, we were assuming that Miiraa Bai was doing idol worship but You revealed that the contemporary human incarnation was appearing before Miiraa every night in the dress of Krishna and was talking with her. Did the same thing happen with Tyaagaraaja, Annamayya, Raamadasu, Vengamaamba etc. who appear to have done only idol worship of God...

DO YOU ENACT IGNORANCE (WITH FULL AWARENESS) OR REALLY BE IGNORANT (FULLY UNDER MAAYAA)?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, You are God Datta and You know everything because You are omniscient. But, when we talk with You, You ask our names and other general details which appears as if You are an ordinary person. Do You enact ignorance (with full awareness) or really be ignorant (fully under Māyā)?]

Swami Replied:- When God Datta or Father of heaven comes down as human incarnation, both omniscience and full ignorance are necessary because the devotees dealt are of various levels and various...

CAN ANYONE GET SALVATION WITH ENEMY KIND OF RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, we realised that God (contemporary human incarnation) is the source of bliss. Having faith in the incarnation and establishing a relationship with God is very important to attain such bliss and happiness. Some see God as Father, some as friend and so on. Would the soul attain bliss even by enmity with God? We know that Rāvana and Kumbhakarna got salvation just within 3 Janmas by enmity with God. Can anyone get salvation with enemy kind...

HOW AND WHEN WILL GOD DIFFERENTIATE A DEVOTEE AND A WORLDLY PERSON?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, worldly people often considered devotees of God as mad and devotees consider worldly people as mad. As long as a soul is alive on earth, that soul is seen as mad if it's either a devotee of God or a worldly person (who is running after money, family and fame...

KINDLY RATE FOLLOWING THREE KINDS OF PEOPLE ACCORDING TO GOD.
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, there are 3 kinds of people. First kind is mad about worldly things. Second kind is mad about God. Third kind is neither mad about world nor God. Kindly rate these 3 kinds of people according to God. -At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Laxmi Thrylokya]

Swami Replied:- The worldly mad people will reach Naraka (hell) or Bhuvarloka (star world) or Suvarloka (heaven). The Godly mad people...

DO GOPIKAS WANT TO PLEASE GOD OR TO PLEASE THEMSELVES BY THEIR UNION WITH KRISHNA?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Pādanamaskāram Swami, Thank You so much for revealing about Madhura Bhakti. No preacher till now has given a logical explanation about all the actions performed by Lord Krishna except You. Hereafter, no one can dare to criticize Lord Krishna. All because of You. Thanks a million Swami. I have a small question regarding the incident where Gopikas threatened Lord Krishna that they would jump into Yamuna if Krishna hadn't danced with them. Krishna was discouraging them by saying that they would go to Hell for such injustice. In this case, do Gopikas want to please God or to please themselves...

IF THE INCARNATION DECIDES NOT TO SHOW ANY IDENTITY, CAN ANY SOUL IDENTIFY HIM?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, we can identify God (Contemporary human incarnation) only when He preaches knowledge, shows love and does some miracles. Suppose if the incarnation decides not to show His identity, can any soul identify Him?]

Swami Replied:- Miracles are shown even by demons, which were got by them through rigid penance. Miracles alone can’t decide the divinity. His divinity can be identified through His excellent Spiritual knowledge and love to...

GOPIKAS ARE SUPPOSED TO EXPECT NOTHING FROM GOD INCLUDING HIS LOVE. ISN'T IT?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Pādanamaskāram Swami, Your answer about Madhura Bhakti is just mind blowing. You said, "A devotee is a servant of God in Brahmaloka and God becomes the servant of devotee in Goloka. It is not the question of owner or servant, but, it is the question of the extent of love of God. In Vaikuntha (Brahmaloka), God shows highest love to devotees whereas in Goloka, God shows higher than highest love to the devotee. It depends purely...

WITH MY LIMITED KNOWLEDGE, I AM FAILING TO CONCLUDE THAT LORD RAMA IS HUMAN INCARNATION OF GOD. KINDLY ENLIGHTEN ME.
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Pādanamaskāram Swami, You said that Jnānam (Divine Knowledge) and Prema (Love) are the inherent characteristics of God and we should identify the human incarnation of God using these characters. You also said that miracles are only associated characteristics of God. Lord Krishna can be concluded as God using this criterion because He preached Bhagavad Gita (Knowledge) and showed extreme love towards Gopikas, Sudaama and all people in His kingdom. Similarly, Jesus, Mohammad...

WHY DID LORD KRISHNA SAYS THAT HE IS ARJUNA AMONG THE KAURAVAS IN GITA VERSE 10.37?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[A question by Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya]

Swami Replied:- God Krishna preached the Spiritual knowledge to the world in the form of questions and answers and this is the best way of preaching the knowledge. The form of questions and answers will create interest because a question is concentrated on a specific...

GOPIKAS, WHO FAILED IN THE TESTS OF LORD KRISHNA, FAILED IN ALL THE THREE TESTS?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, many Gopikas who failed in the tests of Lord Krishna were looted and raped at the end of Bhaagavatam. Did these Gopikas fail in any of the three tests (Dhaneṣaṇā, Dāreṣaṇā, Putreṣaṇā)? Or did they fail in all the three tests?

Swami Replied:- Whether a soul fails in one paper or in all papers, the candidate comes under the category of failures only. All Gopikas passed in the test of their bonds with their life partners. Only 12 Gopikas passed...

DID THE FAILED GOPIKAS KNOW THAT THEY WERE ABUSING GOD?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: In previous discourses, Your explained that the sin committed towards God returns in high intensity and this is the reason for the suffering of failed Gopikas. My questions are as follows. Did the failed Gopikas know that they were abusing God? They might abuse Krishna assuming Him to be a spoiled brat of village head.]

Swami Replied:- Sage Naarada told that all the Gopikas had the knowledge of Krishna as God...

UNTIL LORD KRISHNA, NO ONE HAS SEEN GOD SHOWING NEGATIVE QUALITIES. ISN'T IT?
Posted on: 26/08/2021

Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: It was Krishna who started showing extreme negative qualities to Gopikas although the basis of those qualities is infinite love. So, the Gopikas who were sages in previous births failed to recognise Him as God. Until then, no one has seen God showing negative qualities. Isn't it? God who is the epitome of kindness could have protected them. But, we know that what God does is correct...

PLEASE EXPLAIN ABOUT THE FINAL FEMALE BIRTH AND SURRENDER OF BODY TO GOD AS TWO SEPARATE ITEMS.
Posted on: 26/08/2021

[A question by Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya]

Swami replied: Very good question. Here only the confusion comes. Wherever there is smoke (final female birth), there is fire (surrender of body), but, wherever there is fire (surrender of the body), there need not be smoke (final female birth). If the body is surrendered to God by a female devotee, following the path of Gopikas, it need not be the final birth. If the birth is really final as in the case of Gopikas, the surrender of body will be certain...

Posted on: 25/08/2021

[A spiritual conversation took place in Hyderabad on 23-08-2021 and was attended by a number of devotees. Some of the flashes of spiritual knowledge that were radiated from Śrī Datta Swami are given below for the benefit of the spiritual world.]

1. How did Rama feel when He alone was killing huge number of demons in the context of insult of Surpanaka?

[A question by Shri Bharat]

Swami replied: The unimaginable God is merged with God Datta. God Datta is merged with God Vishnu. God Vishnu merged with God Rama. The killing of so many huge demons is the context of unimaginable power, which is belonging to unimaginable God only. Hence, in this context, the unimaginable God is most relevant. The feeling of unimaginable God shall be the feeling of the rest three (God Datta, God Vishnu, God Rama)...

[Ms. Swathika asked: How to get hunger for divine knowledge? When we are getting abundant divine knowledge from Swami, how do we grow hunger for Knowledge?]

Swami replied:  Lot of food is cooked in our house and served to all the family members who are hungry. Anybody can take the food that is needed to pacify his/her own hunger. When the hunger is pacified...

[A spiritual conversation took place in Hyderabad on 23-08-2021 and was attended by a number of devotees. Some of the flashes of spiritual knowledge that were radiated from Śrī Datta Swami are given below for the benefit of the spiritual world.]

[A question by Ms. Bhanu Samykya]

Swami replied: When Gopikas came to Brindavan on hearing flute song of Krishna, they proved that their love is strong and more than their love to their life partners. When Krishna threatened them that they will go to hell,

HOW TO DECIDE ABOUT MY TRUE CASTE?
Posted on: 25/08/2021

[A spiritual conversation took place in Hyderabad on 23-08-2021 and was attended by a number of devotees. Some of the flashes of spiritual knowledge that were radiated from Śrī Datta Swami are given below for the benefit of the spiritual world.]

Shri Bharath asked: When I study spiritual knowledge, I feel that I am a Brahmana. When I think to fight against injustice, I feel that I am a Kshtriya. When I do some business, I feel that I am Vaishya. When I do some public service and worry about worldly life, I feel that I am a Sudra. When I try to do horrible sin, I feel that I am untouchable. My caste is changing from one context to the other. This is based on Your recently established...

WE BELIEVE GOD AS A DOT ONLY AND NOT AS STATUES OR INCARNATIONS ETC. HOW TO RECONCILE OUR WAY OF PHILOSOPHY WITH THE ULTIMATE TRUTH?
Posted on: 25/08/2021

[A spiritual conversation took place in Hyderabad on 23-08-2021 and was attended by a number of devotees. Some of the flashes of spiritual knowledge that were radiated from Śrī Datta Swami are given below for the benefit of the spiritual world.]

[A question Ms. Sruthi]

Swami replied: The actual God existing in the form of a dot is neither seen by anybody nor captured in the film of a camera directly. You are worshipping a photo of an artificial dot created by the photographer only. In such case, why not the statue of God be also worshipped in the same way because the worshipped photo of either God Rama or the dot are one and the same as far as the concept of worship...
