Datta Jayanti Message-2023: The Soul, The Goal And The Path

O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,


[Datta Jayanti is on December 26, 2023. Swami delivered Datta Jayanti message in advance of the festival.]

The Soul and Goal:- Soul means the inert energy produced on digestion and oxidation of food. This inert energy enters various biological systems and makes them to function under various names like mechanical energy, respiration energy, etc. When this inert energy enters a functioning brain-nervous system, the inert energy is transformed into a specific work form of energy, called awareness. The general electricity on entering a grinding machine, produces a specific work called grinding. The same general electricity on entering a cutting machine, produces a specific work called cutting. Awareness is the general nervous energy, which is obtained by the modification of inert energy in the brain-nervous system. If inert energy is a lump of gold, awareness is a specific golden jewel. Awareness is essentially inert energy, which can be seen as waves propagating through an electronic device and the Gita says that the individual soul or awareness mixed with thoughts can be seen by experts (Paśyanti Jñāna cakṣuṣaḥ– Gita, Dṛśyate tvagrayā buddhyā– Veda). The general awareness is called pure soul, which is aware of itself without grasping any other information and this state is possible in the state of meditation.

The awareness has two types of properties:- i) To be aware of itself and ii) To be aware of other objects than itself. Pure awareness is contaminated with several thoughts in awakened state. The same pure awareness is also mixed with several thoughts supplied from inside in dream state. In both these states, pure awareness (pure soul) is contaminated with several thoughts and is called as individual soul or Jiva. Soul is called Aatman, which is a drop of inert cosmic energy. Soul is qualitatively similar to cosmic energy and quantitatively different from cosmic energy. If cosmic energy is like a mighty ocean, soul is like a tiny drop. Cosmic energy generates the entire creation, maintains it and dissolves it. Inert energy generates matter and awareness. Inert energy, matter and awareness are the fundamental building materials of creation. Since matter and awareness come from inert energy, all this process of creation, maintenance and destruction of the world is possible and the inert, cosmic energy is likely to be treated as God tempting scientists to say that cosmic energy itself is God. But, it cannot be God since it is inert and non-aware. Creation, studied deeply shows that some intellectual element is doing the operation of creation, maintenance and destruction, which cannot be taken as randomness without awareness. Awareness by itself may have awareness (grasping information), but since matter and inert energy are inert, you cannot call the entire inert cosmic energy as God, who performs the actions of awareness like thinking, etc.

The general awareness is functionally divided into four faculties called mind, intelligence, basic-ego and storing capacity of information (Chittam). The mind proposes and disposes thoughts with alternate thoughts (Sankalpa and Vikalpa). The intelligence takes up sharp analysis of all these thoughts to give the final decision. The basic ego is the thought of self or self and body or body only. Chittam stores information in the form of pulses on the brain-information chip, which is like the hard drive of the computer. Awareness grasps information from the external world and also maintains information for some time like the temporary storage of information in the computer. You cannot call pure awareness without any thought as an individual soul. The individual soul is the pure awareness that is contaminated with worldly thoughts. In deep sleep, pure awareness is disappearing like the current when the computer is shut down. The current like awareness is not generated in deep sleep due to non-functioning of the nervous system, taking rest. You can call neither the information chip of the brain, which is inert nor the pure awareness as the individual soul. In deep sleep, the soul or inert energy is present that is activated by the rest part of the brain to carry on functions of all other biological systems. This activity of the brain is also due to mechanical signals only and you cannot claim awareness in these activities. The Advaita philosophers rigidly argue about the eternality of the individual soul in deep sleep also. The experience of all the souls in this world oppose such rigidity because there is no experience of even the total ignorance during deep sleep. As soon as the person awakens, the person is experiencing the freshness and happiness of the deep sleep by which the person says that he/she slept well. Since this is a daily experience, the inference is spontaneous looking like a perceptional experience.

Imaginable Awareness – Awareness of God

For the generation of awareness, both inert energy and a materialized brain-nervous system are essential. In this way, for the production of awareness, both inert energy and matter are required. The Veda says that the entire imaginable awareness is generated from inert food (Annāt Puruṣaḥ…). The Veda also says that God thought of creating this world (Sa īkṣāṃ cakre…). Before creation, there is neither inert energy nor inert matter. Without inert energy and matter, awareness shall not be generated. In such a case, how did God think about creating this world? Because for any thought, awareness is required, which can never be generated in the absence of matter and inert energy, but, this means that God thought even without awareness! God can think even without awareness because God is omnipotent. Omnipotent means that God can do any impossible action. You may say that awareness is produced even in the absence of inert energy and a materialized nervous system because the omnipotent God created awareness even though such creation is impossible based on normal worldly logic. But, you need not think that awareness is generated by omnipotent God so that the awareness can help in the formation of thought. You can directly think that the omnipotent God thought even in the absence of the generation of awareness. Omnipotence means the possibility of every impossible thing. You may argue that awareness is in thought like gold in a golden jewel. Even if you maintain your logic in this matter, we can’t call that awareness present in the thought as the imaginable awareness that can be only generated by the inert energy and a functioning materialized brain-nervous system. In such a case, you have to accept that the awareness present in the thought of God must be unimaginable. Now, we have to say that the unimaginable awareness of unimaginable God exists. Any number of unimaginable items result in one unimaginable item only. Hence, either you have to mention unimaginable awareness or unimaginable God and you cannot mention the existence of both unimaginable awareness and unimaginable God since any number of unimaginable items result in one unimaginable item only. You don’t have any common point between unimaginable awareness and imaginable awareness since unimaginable awareness means that you cannot imagine it as imaginable awareness. In such a case, there is no single similarity between unimaginable awareness and imaginable awareness.

If we go on analysing the cause-effect chain in which the imaginable cause generates an imaginable product, there will be no end to this infinite chain. In order to avoid this defect, Gaudapaada proposed the unborn world (Ajaativaada). This is not a good proposal. The best proposal will be that the ultimate cause of this creation must be an unimaginable item. In such a case, the chain will end at the unimaginable item, which is the ultimate cause terminating the endless chain of imaginable causes and imaginable effects.

When does an item become unimaginable? If an item is beyond space without spatial dimensions, certainly such item having no trace of volume, is unimaginable to any human brain. This means the ultimate unimaginable cause is not having spatial dimensions in it since it is beyond space. Space is generated as the first imaginable item from the unimaginable ultimate cause. Space means subtle energy and there is no nothingness anywhere. Space cannot exist in that unimaginable cause before its generation from that unimaginable cause. If space exists in the unimaginable cause even before its generation, the generation of space from the unimaginable cause becomes false. Space or subtle energy is the first product of creation that came from the unimaginable cause. Both space and inert energy are mentioned as the first item created by God as per the Veda (Ātmana ākāśaḥ…., tat tejo'sṛjata). This means that both space and energy are one and the same inert energy. Inert energy exists as subtle energy (space) and also as gross energy like fire, light, etc. First, subtle energy (space) is generated and later on, gross energy (Agni) was generated. In between space and gross energy, matter in gaseous state (Vayu) is also generated, which is essential for emitting energetic radiation. This energy on condensation becomes matter and the same energy is transformed into awareness while working in a brain-nervous system. Inert energy, inert matter and non-inert awareness become the fundamental building materials of creation.

The imaginable awareness produced from inert energy in a functioning brain-nervous system cannot generate the subtle inert energy (space) with the help of which all the creation can be created by God. Hence, imaginable awareness cannot be taken as God. Imaginable awareness may have some intellectual faculty (which itself is inadequate to create and manage this entire world) that helps in the plan of creation in a very limited way, but imaginable awareness cannot generate space and further elements to create the world, whereas God created space and other elements to create this inert and non-inert world.

Therefore, dreaming that imaginable awareness itself as God becomes a very laughable stuff! Moreover, the eternality of God becomes doubtful when you assume God as imaginable awareness, which disappears in deep sleep every day! Every day in deep sleep, imaginable awareness disappears and reappears when the awakened state starts. To maintain the eternality of God, the Advaita philosophers try to maintain awareness in  deep sleep also witnessing the ignorance of deep sleep. In the awakened state, a fellow totally ignorant in a subject can say that he is totally ignorant of the subject by experiencing total ignorance of that subject. In this case, awareness can be said to be experiencing ignorance. But, in deep sleep, there is no case of anybody on earth experiencing the total ignorance. You cannot establish anything odd that contradicts the experience of every human being in this world!

Parabrahman and His Incarnations

The original unmediated-unimaginable God or Parabrahman is beyond even imagination and cannot be even meditated by souls. In view of creating a facility of meditation and worship for future souls,  Parabrahman created some space (Paramavyoma) and some gross energy to create an energetic body with an energetic soul. Parabrahman merged with this first energetic form (containing energetic body with energetic soul) to become the first energetic incarnation called God Datta, who is also called Hiranyagarbha for creation, Naaraayana for maintenance and Ishwara for destruction of creation. Later on, God Datta incarnated as God Brahma (Hiranyagarbha), as God Vishnu (Naaraayana) and as God Shiva (Ishwara). God Datta became further energetic incarnations for the upper energetic worlds and became human incarnations for humanity on earth. The unmediated-unimaginable God became mediated imaginable God for the sake of worship of souls. Since God Datta is Parabrahman, all the incarnations of God Datta are only the incarnations of Parabrahman. There is no trace of any difference between Parabrahman and God Datta just like there is no difference between a naked person in the bathroom, invisible to everybody (Parabrahman is also invisible since unimaginable) but imaginable and visible to everybody since mediated or clothed when coming out of the bathroom. The Veda says two points while defining Parabrahman:- i) He is the creator, the maintainer and the destroyer of the world (Yato vā imāni…) and ii) He is one only (Ekamevā'dvitīyam…). Both these points are exactly correlated in the form of God Datta since He is only one personality and since He alone is the creator, maintainer and destroyer of this world as indicated by His three faces of God Brahma, God Vishnu and God Shiva. Therefore, God Datta is exactly the original Parabrahman without any difference and the only difference is that Parabrahman is unmediated and God Datta is mediated.

Everybody knows that there is no difference between an unclothed naked person in the bathroom and the same person, clothed coming out of bathroom and visible to everybody. Of course, energetic incarnation is relevant for the upper energetic worlds and human incarnation is relevant for humanity on earth. Hence, if the human being does a very long penance for an energetic incarnation, either it is not appearing or even if it appears, it stays for a few minutes only. Devotees are foolishly wasting all their time in penance to see the energetic form of God while God made the facility of seeing the human incarnation on earth without doing penance even for one minute. If the foolish devotee spends all the lifelong time in seeing the energetic form of God neglecting the human form of God standing before his/her eyes, where is the time to know the spiritual knowledge from God and to put spiritual efforts to please God?

How to detect the human incarnation of God Datta? You must remember that every incarnation is of God Datta only because God Datta along with His merged Parabrahman merges with the medium to become incarnation. Parabrahman merged with the first energetic form to become God Datta and God Datta merges with energetic media or human media to become further incarnations. In this way, you can call any incarnation as the incarnation of God Datta, who Himself is Parabrahman. The excellent spiritual knowledge with topmost clarification comes from the part of God Brahma. The wonderful love on true devotees comes from the part of God Vishnu. The miracles to give proof of existence of God to atheists comes from God Shiva. Devotees worship Vishnu and Shiva only because they want love from God so that they can use His miraculous powers for solving their worldly problems. They neglect God Brahma or  spiritual knowledge that is very useful to give the right direction in Pravrutti and Nivrutti. This is the reason why God Brahma is not much worshiped by humanity! Even a fool does not do anything that is not personally useful in the materialistic line!

Three Strongest Worldly Bonds

The three strongest worldly bonds (Eshanaatrayam) are the bonds with money, spouse and children. This concept is introduced by sages in the scriptures because in every house, only these three exist as the essence of worldly life. If the bond with God defeats these three bonds, the bond with God will be proved as strongest and full salvation (liberation) from all worldly bonds is attained. Since the sages mentioned the bond with spouse in this triad, they went to embrace God Raama by becoming females through their supernatural power. Raama asked them to be born as real females in the next birth so that all the three strongest worldly bonds will be tested. In the next birth, sages were born as Gopikas and God incarnated as Krishna. The bond with wealth and the bond with children are always joined together since parents give all their wealth to their children only. Krishna stole the butter (wealth) stored for their children so that the joint test (money and children) is conducted for ten years (5th to 15th year). Even though the Gopikas know that Krishna was God (Sage Naarada mentions this in His Bhakti Sutram), almost all the Gopikas complained to Yashoda failing in the joint test. Even sage Vyaasa failed in this test, who ran after His son Shuka on leaving the house and this is mentioned by Him in the beginning of the Bhaagavatam. Krishna conducted the test with spouse by dancing with the Gopikas (Raasakeli) for two years (16th to 18th year) and every Gopika passed in this test. Only 12 Gopikas passed both the tests and went to Goloka. The most laughable point is that king Parikshit questioned Sage Shuka about the test with spouse and in this test, all the Gopikas passed! He did not question the about stealing of butter (joint test) of Krishna in which almost all the Gopikas failed! Generally, people criticise the test in which most candidates failed and appreciate the test in which the majority get through. The soul always tries to blame God rubbing defects on Him and tries to protect self-defects! If the sages have any objection for the test of the bond with spouse, they should not have mentioned it in the triad in their scriptures. They were convinced about this triad, pestered God for testing this triad and did not go back even when Krishna threatened them about the horrible hell for dancing with Him. Why should others have stomach pain for Krishna testing the triad in the case of the sages born as Gopikas? God is omniscient and omnipotent and we misunderstand Him when He says to vote for Him even against justice if necessary (Sarvadharmān… Gita). If you do very sharp and deep analysis, you will understand that such appearing justice is actually injustice against which we have to vote, so that you will always understand God as the supporter of justice only!

Sage Atri along with other sages thought “The Veda says that one Brahman only creates, maintains and destroys this entire world. But, we are clearly seeing separately God Brahma creating, God Vishnu maintaining and God Shiva destroying the world”. With this doubt, he did serious penance on the Ruksha mountain for Brahman. The three deities (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) appeared by saying that they three together constitute Brahman. Atri denied these three since Brahman is one only and since then he was called Atri (A = no, tri = three deities). Then, God Datta appeared with three faces of creator, maintainer and destroyer of this world (faces of Hiranyagarbha or Brahma, Narayana or Vishnu and Ishwara or Shiva). Since the Vedic definition of Brahman is completely applied in this seen form, Atri cried saying “Dattah Dattah” (Brahman is attained or given). Thus, the first energetic incarnation is called God Datta. Later on, the wife of Atri requested God Datta to be born to her as human incarnation and thus, born human incarnation is called Dattaatreya (given to Atri as son). Datta Jayanti means the birthday of God Dattaatreya, which is the full moon day of Maargashira month.

(To be continued in Part-2…)


Theoretical Devotion and Practical Devotion

The Path:- What is the use of this creation to God? God wanted some entertainment with a second object called world as per the Veda (Ekākī na ramate, sa dvitīyamaicchat). The aim of the creation of God is very very excellent and highest and you shall not mistake this as cheap entertainment of a lazy person. God wants to enjoy the true love of a true devotee with climax of emotion and this climax scene is the aim of the creation in the mind of God. The aim of every soul must be to please God and get His grace before the human soul finishes its human life on earth. Such effort of the soul to please God becomes the path to become very close to God (Saayujyam). Such effort must be well decided by digesting the vast ocean of true spiritual knowledge completely as given by the divine preacher (Sadguru) in the most clarified way. This is the first step called knowledge (Jnaana Yoga). Such knowledge generates emotion that strengthens the inspiration to implement the knowledge in practice. Such theoretical inspiration that is capable of implementing the knowledge in practice is called theoretical devotion (Bhakti Yoga). When the knowledge is implemented in practice (Karma Yoga), there are two sub-steps:- i) Sacrifice of physical energy called service or Karma Samnyaasa and ii) Sacrifice of the fruit of hard work to God called sacrifice or Karma Phala Tyaaga. God says that He will grant theoretical boons for theoretical devotion (Jnaana Yoga by intelligence and Bhakti Yoga by mind) and practical boons for practice (Karma Yoga). Saints can do only Karma Samnyaasa whereas householders must do both Karma Samnyaasa and Karma Phala Tyaaga. Karma Yoga is the practical proof of theoretical knowledge and theoretical devotion. Truth is always decided through practice only and mere theory gives the doubt whether it is true or not.

Karma Yoga is like the mango plant, Jnaana Yoga is like the water and Bhakti Yoga is like the manure. Even if you have 100 tanks of water and 100 bags of manure, the final fruit comes only to the mango plant. This means Jnaana Yoga and Bhakti Yoga, which are theoretical are doubtful without Karma Yoga. But, without water, the mango plant will die and without manure, the mango plant will not grow to yield the fruit. Hence, all three are equally important, but, practice alone proves the truth of the concept. Jnaana Yoga gives all the correct theoretical details of God by which you develop theoretical inspiration or attraction to God, which is called Bhakti Yoga and this is also theoretical. Finally, you will enter practical efforts called Karma Yoga to please God and attain His closest association called Saayujyam. First, you hear the details of Mumbai city, then, you develop attraction to see Mumbai city. Finally, you will make practical efforts to go to Mumbai by walking up to the railway station (sacrifice of physical energy or Karma Samnyaasa) and then purchase the ticket from your purse (sacrifice of fruit of work or Karma Phala Tyaaga). After purchasing the ticket, all efforts on the side of the devotee complete to reach a full stop (Tyāgāt śāntiranantaram…Gita). Rukmini also heard details of Krishna from Sage Naarada (Jnaana Yoga) and developed a lot of emotional inspiration to marry Krishna (Bhakti Yoga). Then, she wrote a love letter to Krishna and sent it through the priest (Karma Samnyaasa). Finally, she rewarded the priest with her golden chain (Karma Phala Tyaaga). The omnipotent God does not aspire anything from any devotee because He is fully contented (Āptakāmasya kā spṛhā – Veda, Nānavāptamavāptavyam – Gita).

Karma Yoga is only to test the true love of the devotee and not for any need of God. A grandfather brought a packet of biscuits and gave it secretly to his daughter-in-law. She gave a few biscuits to her son and the son is eating those biscuits thinking that his mother bought the biscuits. Now, the grandfather begs his grandson for a bit of biscuit to test the true love of the grandson on him. There is no need of the biscuit for the grandfather. If the grandson knows that actually the grandfather bought the biscuit, he will give the full biscuit to the grandfather due to gratefulness, which is not true love. Gratefulness is business devotion. Devotees reject the human incarnation because God in human form will enjoy the offering of the devotee. Due to this inconvenience, people either worship formless God or God through statues and photos to save their offerings to be enjoyed by themselves. Their arguments are based on their hidden spiritual economics in their hearts. Another reason for rejecting the human incarnation is ego-based jealousy towards a co-human form. God does not interfere with the properties of the medium just like current does not interfere with the properties of the wire through which it is passing. This type of behaviour of God is to freely mix with human beings so that all human beings clarify their doubts without any excitation about God. But, since the properties of the medium of God and the properties of their bodies are one and the same, negligence comes due to misunderstanding the incarnation as an ordinary human being. One advantage and one disadvantage co-exist just like both divine nectar and horrible poison were created side by side while churning the ocean.

The Veda said that sacrifice of money to the Sadguru (the contemporary human incarnation of God) is the way to become close with God (Dhanenaike amṛtattvamānaśuḥ). Krishna modified this concept in a better way by saying that the sacrifice of fruit of hard work is the best way (Tyāgāt śāntiranantaram, prāhustyāgaṃ vicakṣaṇāḥ– Gita). The reason is that God competes with the strongest worldly-bond so that God becomes the strongest bond by defeating the strongest worldly bond. Bond with hard earned money is stronger than the bond with ancestral wealth. Apart from this sacrifice of fruit of hard-work, aspiration in return from God for the service and sacrifice done by the devotee is the worst leprosy spot. Hanuman used Himself in the work of God without aspiring anything from God and hence, Hanuman is worshipped as God having many many temples! In the case of Arjuna, you find that Arjuna used God in his work of fighting for property and hence, Arjuna has no single temple!

If the sacrifice to God is in its climax, one need not worry about the sins done by him/her because God will put that devotee on His head just like a diamond covered by dust will be cleaned and will be placed in the crown. God can reform the sinner and alternatively He can undergo the punishments of that devotee, if necessary. Even if a washed gravel stone without even a dust particle is seen by us, we neglect it and go by our way. The hunter in the forest has several sins with him by hunting soft natured animals every day, but, when he plucked his eye for the sake of the bleeding eye of God Shiva, God gave him His highest divine abode (7th upper world) since that hunter is a dusted diamond. Dharma Raja never did any sin and did not say a lie in the war even though God Krishna requested him. He is a washed pure gravel stone. He went up to the third world (heaven) only. God Krishna said in the Gita that His strongest devotee even though associated with sins will get reformation and reach Him (Api cet sa durācāraḥ…).

Common Media Repulsion Causing Greatest Loss

The Veda says that if the human incarnation is not recognised on earth by the soul due to repulsion between common human media, the devoted soul also does not identify the energetic incarnation in the upper world because after death, the soul goes to the upper world in an energetic subtle body due to which the same repulsion between common energetic media results and this is called as the greatest loss for the human soul (Mahatī vinaṣṭiḥ– Veda). The basic reason for such repulsion between common media is ego-based jealousy, which is to be removed first. Ego can be easily destroyed since if God gives the punishment of a severe sin, the ego (ahankaara) gets destroyed in a fraction of a minute. But, fascination (mamakaara) towards worldly bonds can’t be destroyed even if a thousand punishments are given at a time to the soul. Hence, there is no need to destroy fascination and simply you can turn that fascination towards God from worldly bonds. If fascination is developed to God, the worldly bonds drop spontaneously just like if the divine nectar is tasted, the liking for all worldly drinks is spontaneously dropped. There is no need of any trial for the detachment of worldly bonds since it spontaneously happens once the fascination to God reaches its climax. You must note that cutting worldly bonds by force is impossible and unnecessary also. Cutting worldly bonds is not a pre-requisite for attaining fascination to God. Without getting fascination to God, cutting worldly bonds is impossible because the mind always desires for fascination with some item. Without tasting the divine nectar, it is useless to drop attraction towards worldly drinks because you will be losing both the divine nectar and worldly drinks!

There are four types of devotion:- i) Prostitute Devotion (Veshyaa Bhakti), ii) Business Devotion (Vaishya Bhakti), iii) Issue Devotion (Apatya Bhakti) and iv) Fan Devotion (Unmaada Bhakti).

i) Prostitute Devotion:- The devotee gives theoretical knowledge and theoretical devotion to God aspiring for practical boons. The prostitute also speaks very wisely and also sings sweet songs to grab money from customers. But, God gives only theoretical boons for theoretical devotion.

ii) Business Devotion:- The devotee does practical devotion (Karma Yoga) aspiring for practical boons from God. God sanctions the practical boons without love to the devotee and here also, there is no true love in the devotee because some fruit is aspired from God. Of course, this is somewhat better than the above-mentioned devotion.

iii) Issue Devotion:- The devotee shows real love on God both theoretically and practically without aspiring for any return fruit. Parents do service and sacrifice of their property to their children whatever the treatment may be, given by them in old age. In this case, true love exists. Similarly, if you do theoretical and practical devotion to God without aspiring for any fruit in return from God, issue devotion results and every devotee shall try to achieve this devotion. You cannot say that it is impossible to develop issue devotion to God because nobody does any service or sacrifice without benefit in return. Since you are doing the same in the case of your issues, you cannot argue about the impossibility of this in the case of God. Can you say that you can lift a mountain in Mumbai and not in Delhi?

iv) Fan Devotion:- The devotee is attracted towards the personality of God and does both theoretical and practical devotion to God without aspiring for any fruit in return from God. The best example is the fan of a cinema hero, since the fan is spending from his pocket only for every inauguration function of release of new cinema of his hero. The hero does not pay anything to the fan and in fact, he may not even know the fan. The fan is not related to the hero in anyway. When the hero dies, the fan commits suicide! This much unimaginable love is developed in the mind of the fan by seeing various movies of his hero in which the personality of the hero is exalted to its climax. The devotion of the fan is good but the goal is not good since the personality of the hero projected in movies is not his real personality outside. If you replace the hero by God, how nice it will be, since God has that personality in reality! Here, the point of suicide on the part of devotee is mentioned only to show the unimaginable climax of true love and in fact, it is not liked by God since God said in the Veda that suicide is the highest sin.

True Interpretation of the Scriptures

The tradition was excellent up to the end of Dwaapara Yuga and it went to the grip of Kali when Kali age started. Several misinterpretations on the scriptures started giving misunderstandings in the minds of the innocent public. The follower of God Datta shall understand the truth of these traditions and shall follow the true meaning of the following traditions without falling into the clutches of kali.

1) Gaayatrii Hymn:-

Gaayatrii means protection from God to the singer of the praise of God (Gāyantaṃ trāyate iti). It is a mode of worship of God and not a particular hymn, which is present in Gaayatrii meter. It is clearly told in the scripture of sandhyaavandanam that Gaayatrii is the name of a Vedic meter and Savitaa is God (Gāyatrī chhandaḥ, savitā devatā). God Brahma Datta is the deity and Gaayatrii is the name of the meter of the hymn “Tat savituḥ…”. The Yajur Veda is in prose, the Rug Veda is in poetry and the Saama Veda is in songs. The attraction of the mind increases from left to right. God said that He is the Saama Veda (Vedānāṃ Sāmavedo'smi… Gita). Gaayatrii is universal since its sage Vishwamitra means the friend of this entire universe. It is beyond language, gender, religion and region. Any song in any religion, in any language is Gaayatrii. A Vedic hymn in Sanskrit, present in Gaayatrii meter, is now read as Gaayatrii without singing and excluding the Gayatrii, a female diety, to females is not correct. Then it is not Gaayatrii diety at all. Upanayanam, the ritual in which Gaayatrii is introduced, is also a misunderstood ritual because upanayanam means becoming close to God by climax devotion attained by singing a song and this relates to anybody in this universe. The three threads of the holy thread indicate three qualities (Sattvam, Rajas and Tamas) or creation or medium telling us that we shall worship any form of mediated God since Savitaa (creator) shall not be taken as unmediated-unimaginable God.

2) Sacrifice (Yajna):-

Ignorant people are burning ghee, a precious food, by pouring it in the fire going against the Veda, which says that food shall not be destroyed (Annaṃ na paricakṣīta). Fire is in three forms:- i) Loukikaagni or Bhautikaagni (fire burning on sticks), ii) Vaidyutaagni (fire that is generated from electricity) and iii) Devataagni or Vaishvaanaraagni (hunger fire present in hungry person). The first two types are instruments of sacrifice (Yajna saadhanam) used to cook ghee associated food (Ghrutam is not ghee but ghee-associated food by implied meaning or Lakshanaa.), which is served to a hungry person to burn it in his/her hunger fire (fire to be worshipped or Yajnopaasyah) and this fire is said to be God in the Gita (Ahaṃ vaiśvānaro bhūtvā). The first hymn of the first Veda (Rug Veda) says that fire is both receiver (Havaniiya) and supplier (Hotaa) of ghee-food. The inert fire can only be the receiver and not the supplier. The fire shall mean the hungry Sadguru, who can be the supplier of ghee food (eating with hand) and receiver (supplying ghee food to the fire in the stomach). Thus, even the first hymn of the first Veda is misunderstood! The Veda says that the hungry guest is called Vaishvaanara fire (Vaiśvānaraḥ praviśatyatithiḥ). God Kapila told that a fool burns ghee in fire. God Krishna asked the wives of sages to give the ghee-food to His hungry friends. Today, tons and tons of ghee are burnt in physical fire by ignorant devotees to pollute the atmosphere stopping rains. The Veda says that all deities are present in the Sadguru and if He is fed, god Indra present in the Sadguru is pleased to give rains (Yāvatīrvai devatāḥ…).

3) The Veda means knowledge and not blind recitation:-

Today, priests spend more than ten years in blindly reciting the Veda like inert tape recorders without knowing its meaning while the Veda itself means knowledge (Vidul jñāne). In the ancient days, when printing technology was absent, the Veda was preserved by recitation to avoid insertions and deletions, yet, they used to study the meaning of the Veda. Meaning (Jnaana Yoga) gives inspiration (Bhakti Yoga) leading to final practice (Karma Yoga) that gives the fruit. Puurvamimamsakaas say that the word itself is God (Shabdamaatra Devataa) having supernatural power and this is totally nonsense that made them to become atheists. Sage Yaaska told that the priest blindly reciting the Veda is like an animal carrying the gold on its back without knowing the value of gold (Svarṇabhāraharaḥ…). The Veda also says that such a priest is an animal used by the deities (Devānāṃ paśurahaha…). The scripture says that Adhyayanam (knowing knowledge) and Jnaanam (knowing knowledge) of the Veda is to be done and repetition of the same meaning gives a lot of stress on the concept (Vedo'dhyetavyo jñeyaśca). Here, recitation is not mentioned. The Hindu religion is not digested by the Hindus due to this Sanskrit-language problem, whereas scriptures of Christianity and Islam are written in their mother tongues so that they follow well their scriptures easily. Our priests themselves do not understand the Veda and not to speak about the Hindu audience! The Gita says that you shall do the Vedic rituals after knowing the meaning of the scripture, the Veda (Jñātvā kurvīta karmāṇi…).

4) The concept of Yoga:-

Yoga means joining or attainment of God to become close to Him. Even though this word can be used for attaining anything in the world in the sense of its root meaning, it is generally fixed (ruudhi) in the case of God only. The pre-requisite for such union with God is good physical and mental health. This health can be used in the service of God. But today, under the name of yoga, some steps (yama, niyama, aasana, praanaayaama and pratyaahaara) are taken for good health with a view to enjoy the worldly life more effectively. Controlling external and internal senses, physical exercises, breathing exercises and withdrawal of mind from  worldly affairs to have peace are these five steps mentioned above. Next, dhaarana is catching contemporary human incarnation. Next, dhyaana means showing and proving true love to God. Samaadhi means firm and full faith in the selected goal.

Kundalini or Mind or nervous energy traveling in the form of waves through the spinal cord must cross six wheels or lotus flowers by moving in a curved way and not in a straight way to clash with these wheels. Actually, these wheels represent various worldly bonds like whirlpools in the world-ocean dragging the swimmer to reach God, rotating the swimmer for sometime to give entertainment and finally drown him. These wheels are compared to the lotus flowers that drag the black bee like ignorant soul and bind it by closing petals. Wheels and lotus flowers are for comparison only and not really existing items. Ignorant people imagine the physical wheels and flowers dreaming that they have crossed these wheels or flowers to reach the top most 7th wheel (Sahasraara) where kundalini (mind) merges with God. All this is a pictorial presentation of the spiritual effort, which is that mind crossing these worldly bond-hurdles in a curved way to reach and merge with God. This means that you shall cross these bonds of world made of maayaa (illusion) using the curved way (maayaa) without direct conflict with worldly bonds that will appear certainly if the upper movement is straight. Muulaadhaara-wheel is bond with mother standing for earth, Manipuura-wheel is the bond with father standing for water from cloud and both (cloud raining on the earth indicates union of parents to produce children) represent the production of plants, animals etc. The next cakra is Swaadhishthaana-wheel, which is bond with spouse standing for fire that provokes union. The next cakra is Anaahata-wheel, which is bond with children standing for air situated in the heart. This is solidified fascination for children and this wheel (Anaahata) is not hit (crossed) by anyone as per the meaning of the word ‘Anaahata’. The next wheel, called Vishuddha Chakra, is in the throat standing for the bond with false preacher presenting space since his preaching is only the void without truth. Next is Ajnaa-cakra wheel standing for mind wavering with bonds of several forms of God. The sahasraara is a thousand petaled lotus flower in the place of intelligence on the top part of the head and this kundalini after crossing all the hurdle wheels merges here with the absolutely true God. The thousand petals indicate various analytical discussions to arrive at the truth. God Datta is called Yogiraaja (King of Yogis) and this is the explanation of Yoga given to the world by God Datta through Shri Datta Swami. Cheating the worldly bonds to avoid fight with them for the sake of God is not a sin (Sarvadharmān… Gita) and if any human being stands in the place of God, certainly this is cheating the justified worldly bonds and this leads to severe hell (Dushpravrutti).

5) Non-Vegetarian food:-

There is no sin in taking non-vegetarian food because the same ingredients exist in vegetables and in non-vegetarian food. The entire sin exists in killing the animal or bird for food when God created vegetarian food for all the living beings. God has given commandment that food must be from vegetables only (Oṣadhībhyo'nnam— Veda). The torture felt by the animal or bird when killed is unimaginable. Non-veg. food is criticized even by scientists because you get secondary proteins (once formed in the plants and second time formed in animals) and not primary proteins. The veg. food is digested in 5 to 6 hours whereas non-veg. food takes 72 hours for digestion. WHO says that more than 150 diseases are possible by non-veg. food. The punishment for killing an animal for food is that in the next birth the killer will be born as an animal and the killed animal is born as killer of that animal. The animal or bird during death thinks “as I am killed now by this fellow, in the next birth I will kill him” (Māṃ saḥ yathā hanti…). The punishment comes to the eater of non-veg. food also since consumption raises the demand. The highest injustice told in the scripture is the torture of the animal during killing (Ahimsā paramo dharmaḥ). Making the animal unconscious before killing is also not a remedy because killing certainly gives torture. It is said that you have no right to take away the life of a living being when you are incapable of giving life to it. You shall not argue that plants have life. Real life is defined as the awareness generated in a brain-nervous system. Mere respiration is mechanical and not life. Only zoological examples have life and even the unicellular amoeba has a nervous spot. Botanical examples have no life due to the absence of nervous material and even a very big banyan tree is a non-living item. The follower of God Datta must analyse this point to get clarity of action.

6) Divine administration:-

The follower of God Datta must have full faith in the administration of God Datta in this world and should not give scope to any type of misunderstanding. When you worship God Datta, people say that difficulties come. You are misunderstanding God Datta in this matter. If your difficulties are removed, you think that the punishments of your sins are cancelled by God. This is the wrong impression. When you pray God to remove difficulties, God removes the difficulties not by cancelling your punishments, but, by postponing them to a latter date or to a latter birth with accumulated interest. This is really happening when you pray to God to remove the punishments of sins done by you. When you pray for benefits, God brings back the good fruits of next birth to this birth with lesser values like a premature deposit. You think that you got good fruits even without doing good deeds. You worship God with immense love, but, that love is not on God and is on your desired fruit only. You think that God misunderstood your false love as true love due to which He cancelled sins and gave good fruits without doing good deeds. God is omniscient and He followed your thinking, but, the hidden truth is different. God does like this so that you may develop your devotion and become a reformed person in course of time. In the case of God Datta, He doesn’t like to postpone your sins with interest, and He clears your sins now itself by giving the due punishments without interest. You misunderstand that God Datta gives difficulties for your worship!

If you harmed somebody in the previous birth, he will harm you in the present birth. Due to the lack of knowledge of all births, you misunderstand God for not punishing that person harming you in this birth. This is a retort case and God will not punish the other person. By this, you think that there is no God. If it is a fresh case, God will compensate you for your damage done by that person and God will concentrate on that person to reform him. If the other person is punished by God, you will not be compensated by that. Therefore, even in the fresh case, if God delays the punishment, you shall not misunderstand God. In any case, the devotee of God Datta shall live believing that revenge is completely in the hand of God. If that person is not reformed even for a long time, God will punish him severely. The administration of God Datta is very deep.

7) Caste System:- is a big drawback in Hinduism compared to other religions. God Krishna said that the caste system is developed by Him based on the qualities and subsequent deeds. He clearly says that other basis like birth is not done by Him (Cāturvarṇyam… Gita). We have the Vedic references regarding Satyakaama Jaabaala and Janashruti in whose cases, the caste is decided based on their qualities and not based on birth. A pot maker called Romaharshana was made the president of a very big sacrifice by all sages indicating the significance of qualities over birth. A Brahmin lady changes her caste every day during the four days of her menstrual cycle, which proves that caste system is not permanent due to birth.

There are only four castes as per the Veda. The 5th caste called untouchables is framed because the serious sinners of all the four castes were boycotted from the village as the 5th caste. Such action is for reformation only just like an undisciplined student is boycotted from the school for some days. When the sins are not done by their issues, they cannot be untouchables. This blunder happened in the beginning of Kali age to split Hindus. Such a system does not exist in any other religion. The photo of the hunter (who plucked his eye for the sake of God Shiva) and the photo of Shabari (a scheduled tribe lady) are kept in the prayer rooms of Brahmins for worship. Shankara fell on the feet of an untouchable, when He questioned Shankara about the logic and philosophy in such blind caste system. Rama is not Brahmana, but, is worshipped as God by Brahmins and even though Ravana is a Brahmin, he is not worshipped.

Qualities are always worshipped and not caste and gender. The Veda says that all souls are not only females but also wives of God (Striyaḥ satīḥ puṃsaḥ…) and God alone is male. Wife or bhaaryaa means the maintained soul (Bhriyate iti bhāryā) and husband or bhartaa means the maintaining God (Bibharti iti Bhartā). Any devotee of God Datta shall respect qualities irrespective of caste and gender.

8) Guru Dakshina (Offering to divine preacher):- Charity is a double edged knife. It means if you give to a deserving person, good fruit is attained. If you give to an underserving person, you will receive punishment of sin. Hence, the Veda says that you shall do charity after clearly having the knowledge (Saṃvit) of deserving and undeserving (Saṃvidā deyam). You can give Guru Dakshina in the form of money to your spiritual preacher (Guru) provided he preaches the knowledge given by the Sadguru without any self-poetry since Guru has knowledge and does not misuse the money. The Sadguru is the contemporary human incarnation of God and does not require anything from you since he is the giver to all. The Sadguru begs you for offering, not for His need, but to test whether your love to Him is true or not. A grandfather begs his grandson for a bit of biscuit to see the true love of the grandson and is not in need. In fact, he purchased the biscuit packet and gave to his daughter-in-law telling her to keep it confidential so that he can test the true love of his grandson. If the grandson knows that his grandfather bought the biscuits, he will immediately donate the full biscuit due to gratefulness, which is not true love. Similarly, God gives wealth to you and keeping this as secret, He comes and begs from you to test your true love to Him. You must note that He is not a beggar in need.

When charity is done for the poor, you shall not think of deserving and undeserving since it is an emergency (āpat dharma). But, while donating to the poor, we must give first preference to beggars, who are the poorest. If no beggar is seen anywhere, then only, you shall select poorer and then poor. The first priority is in constructing beggar homes to give shelter, food, clothes and medicine. You shall always donate material to beggars and not money since they will wrongly use it for bad purposes.

The Gita says that after the sacrifice of fruit of work, nothing is leftover on the part of the devotee in the spiritual path (Tyāgāt śāntiranantaram– Gita). God Krishna did only one sacrifice of His entire wealth (Sarvakarmaphalatyāgam… Gita) to Sudaama in His entire life because he was most deserving. The Veda says two qualities for the deservingness of the receiver:- i) He should have all the spiritual knowledge and ii) He shall not aspire for anything from anybody. Only a climax devotee can do such sacrifice of total fruit. Hence, the devotee shall practice the most important practical concept of sacrifice following the principle of capacity and devotion, whichever is minimum. If your capacity is 100 and your impression on the Guru is 10, you shall donate 10 only. If your capacity is 10 and your impression on the Guru is 100, you shall donate 10 only. This is called “as per capacity and devotion” (Yathā śakti yathā bhakti). Without Guru Dakshina (offering to Guru), the Yajna or sacrifice is fruitless (Adakṣiṇa hato yajñaḥ). Practical devotion (service and sacrifice) is a proof of your theoretical devotion. Sacrifice involves offering of matter and service involves offering of energy and the former is far greater than the latter as per E=MC2. The devotee of God Datta shall be very wise in doing charity since it is a double edged knife giving good fruit if wisely done and giving bad fruit if blindly done.

9) Astrology:- In Astrology, inert planets are not referred, but, their presiding deities with some miraculous powers from God doing administration of the world as per the constitution of God are referred. They are the executive forces of the divine administration. The scriptures of astrology are written by ancient sages like Paraashara, Jaimini etc. These planets have their presiding deities, which are the incarnations of God. To pacify the bad effect of a planet, its presiding incarnation of God is to be worshipped and this is spiritual line only. Apart from this worship, the grains related to a specific planet are cooked and to be given as food to beggars and this develops practical charity. The planets give the results of your past deeds in the exact time whereever you may be present. Hence, it is called as Graha, which means that it catches you in the exact proper time (Gṛhṇāti iti grahaḥ). Astrologers should not think that the nine planets are ultimate and become atheists. The planets are the secretaries under the control of the chief minister-God.

10)Universal Spirituality:-

The follower of God Datta must respect all religions in the world and also all sub-religions in Hinduism. The God of every religion says that He has created earth and the entire humanity on it. Unfortunately, there is only one earth having humanity and therefore, Gods of various religions must mean that only one God exists, who came down to establish various religions in different languages convenient to the different cultures of different regions in this world. If the follower of a religion says that the scripture given by God in his religion alone will save the human being, our question is that why God, creator of the entire humanity, did not give the same scripture to the entire earth without a time gap? If you say that your region alone contains good people, are there no bad people in your region, who crucified your own divine preacher? Our country was disconnected with your country for 1700 years since you obtained your divine scripture. In this time gap, several generations went to hell and this is not their fault and as per you, they all have gone to hell! Had your God supplied your divine scripture in the same time to all countries, at least some of our past generations could have gone to God following your divine scripture! This will impose partiality on God and God is always impartial towards the entire humanity since He is the divine Father of all souls! There is no answer from your side, but, there is answer from our side that the same one God came to all regions in the same time in different media and wrote the scriptures in different languages while the syllabus of all universal religions is one and the same. Hence, from the beginning of the creation, those who followed their scripture reached God and those who did not follow the scripture went to hell. Now, God has no partiality because the souls were rewarded or punished as per their merit and sin. Hence, the follower of God Datta must respect the scriptures of all the religions and must respect the forms of all religions in the world.

Coming to Hinduism, which is a mini-cosmic world, there are several sub-religions in Hinduism and each sub-religion projects itself as the best and only one path to God. The follower of God Datta must respect all sub-religions and various forms of God of all sub-religions as said above. If you understand that God Vishnu and God Shiva are one and the same (Śivaśca Nārāyaṇaḥ— Veda), the Gods of all religions in the world can be one and the same in the similar way. Shankara tried to unite all sub-religions in Hinduism and Swami Vivekananda tried to unite all the religions in the world.

Nobody needs to change his/her religion or sub-religion because the same one God wrote the scriptures for all religions and sub-religions. In all religions and sub-religions, both merits and defects exist. Merits are due to the founders of religions and sub-religions and defects are due to bad followers. If you filter the defects from every religion and sub-religion, you will be surprised to see that the residue leftover on the filter papers is one and the same indicating that there is only one religion with one true spiritual knowledge. Anybody can reach and become close to that one God starting from his own religion and sub-religion. If all religions and sub-religions stand as points on the circle and the centre of the circle is the unmediated-unimaginable God, the wise devotee will reach the centre starting from his own religion or sub-religion. The forward movement is wise than changing one point to the other in the circle, which is changing one’s own religion to another religion. In India, there is a central government and various states exist with the corresponding state governments. Any citizen of any state government is simultaneously an Indian of the central government. You are already registered in your religion or sub-religion by birth (state) and you must register yourself in our centre by using little logic in your brain. This central government is our universal spirituality, which says that the one God, the one heaven and the one hell are common in any religion or sub-religion, which further says that you must follow your religion sincerely, simultaneously accepting the universal spirituality. The syllabus is one and the same in all schools and only languages are different. You must rise in your own school from your class to upper class, without changing to other schools in the same class because vertical motion is for progress, whereas horizontal motion is wasting time.

Correlation of Hindu Sub-religions

Coming to the sub-religions of Hinduism, correlation among Advaita of Shankara, Vishishtaadvaita of Ramanuja and Dvaita of Madhva can be done:-

1) When Shankara came down, He was fully surrounded by atheists (Puurvamimamsakaas and Buddhists). The atheist will never agree to the existence of God other than himself and there is no other way in the case of the very rigid atheist than to say that he is God. Shankara gave three step logic:- i) You are God, ii) You exist and iii) Hence, God exists. The atheist was told by mouth that God exists, but then asked why is he not getting miraculous powers of God? Shankara replied that the practical effect of illusion (Vikshepa-mala) for a long time spoiled the mind and therefore, the mind shall be purified by worshipping God. The atheist converted to theist became the devotee also and his 100% ego started reducing. Shankara convinced His close devotees not to follow this false philosophy meant for atheists, by drinking molten lead saying that He alone is God (Śivaḥ kevalo'ham).

2) At this stage, Ramanuja appeared and propagated theoretical devotion to God making the above devotee strong with more intensified devotion. Now, the ego of the soul is reduced to 50% to understand a better truth. He told them that every soul is not God, but a tiny particle of God (Whole-Part relationship). The souls thought that it is better to accept this having taken a long journey from atheism. These souls continued their devotion to God and their ego was reduced to 1% only.

3) Finally, Madhva appeared at this stage and found the souls eligible to absorb perfect dualism with God. He told that any soul is totally different from God like the pot is different from the pot-maker. Any soul can become the servant of God at the maximum. The soul is settled as a servant of God and this is the ultimate fruit above which a soul shall never aspire and God may give any higher fruit as per His wish.

In this way, the three philosophies are subsequent steps in the spiritual path. Therefore, Shankara came first, then Ramanuja and finally, Madhva in the same sequence. Shankara is God Shiva and hence, told that the soul is God. In fact, Shankara is correct in the case of human incarnation in which God becomes the soul by fully merging with it. Ramanuja is Adishesha treated by God as His eye or hand. Part does not mean in the physical sense. A father says to his two sons that both of them are his eyes. Hence, Ramanuja told that soul is a part of God (Shesha-Sheshi sambandha). He told that the soul is different from God but is inseparable from God. Unable to understand His comparative sense, ignorant people mocked at Him saying that by salvation, if the limb disappears, God will become handicapped! To avoid all this confusion, Madhva told that God and soul are completely separate items. Even though God and soul are made of the same awareness, this common point was neglected by Madhva. In fact, all the three divine preachers agreed that God and soul are made of awareness only. Awareness or Nirguna Brahman alone is God as per Shankara. Such imaginable awareness or individual soul is not God because the imaginable awareness is born from food as per the Veda. Hence, you must say that such awareness is unimaginable awareness and not imaginable awareness or individual soul. Unfortunately, imaginable awareness or soul cannot exist independently without a container and this rejects the point that the independent God is imaginable awareness or individual soul. Ramanuja and Madhva selected God Vishnu along with His divine body as the ultimate God because all of us are in the state of maintenance and ruling of God. Since God Datta along with Parabrahman merged with God Vishnu, there is no trace of doubt to say that God Vishnu is God Datta or Parabrahman. But, this condition applies to God Brahma and God Shiva also. All these three Gods are Parabrahman only in mediated state and hence, there need not be any quarrel about the ultimate God.


(To be continued in Part-3 …)


Some basic concepts from the philosophy of God Datta.

Three Spiritual Knowledge-Bead Garlands

The devotees of God Datta must be alert of the following points and memorize (Mananam) everyday just like doing Japam touching the beads of a garland. If a devotee does Japam of the name of God, both God and the devotee will get a severe headache. If any devotee does the Japam of these spiritual concepts, both God and the devotee will enjoy with bliss and finally, salvation with close association with God will be attained by the devotee.

GOD (Brahma Maalaa)

1. The actual original and ultimate God is invisible, unimaginable and unmediated, who exists beyond the world or space surrounding the world as per the Veda and the Gita (Sa bhūmiṃ viśvato  vṛtvā… Veda, Sarva māvṛtya tiṣṭhati- Gita).

2. For the sake of worship and meditation to be done by souls, the unimaginable God got mediated by the first energetic being created by Him and homogeneously merged with Him, making Him the first energetic incarnation.

3. There is no trace of difference between i) the unimaginable God like a naked person in the bathroom unseen by anyone and ii) the mediated first energetic incarnation called Datta (Datta means unimaginable God given to the world as mediated visible unimaginable God) visible to the souls like the clothed person coming out of the bathroom.

4. God Datta is called as the Father of heaven in other religions in different forms as per their liking like the same person in different dresses and this is the first step for Universal Spirituality.

5. Hindus may worship God Datta and followers of other religions may worship Father of heaven in different forms (dresses), but, everybody shall understand that the inner God worshipped by all devotees in the world is the one and the same unmediated-unimaginable God.

6. Nobody has taken the audio-video cassette when God of a religion in their form is dictating their scripture and hence, the present scripture of any religion is susceptible to insertions by bad followers. Therefore, by deep-sharp logical analysis, if you filter all the defective concepts of all religions, the residue leftover on the filter papers will be the one and the same spiritual knowledge proving that there is only one God writing one spiritual knowledge in different languages of all the religions in the world. This brings impartiality of God, who is the one and the same Divine Father of all humanity on this earth.

7. If the scriptures are different in subject also (I am putting this question to any religion and here, I took Christianity as an example), why was your real scripture not communicated to all disconnected countries in the same time so that the chance of following it is given to everybody in the same time of any generation? It took 1700 years to discover India and 17 generations went to hell for no fault of theirs since your correct scripture was not received by anybody in this gap of time and this makes the one God (creating this one earth with humanity) a partial Divine Father. But, the single Divine Father created all scriptures in different languages in the beginning of creation itself and there is no partiality with God.

8. The triad (God with scripture, hell to punish the sins and heaven to reward merits) is common in all religions and superficial cultural differences can be neglected. If your religion says that your God alone created this earth with humanity and since every religion says like this, the conclusion is that one God in different forms created this one earth with humanity because unfortunately, there is one earth only! The same God in different forms said in the scriptures of all religions that He alone created the earth and here, ‘He’ does not mean the form of God, but means the one ultimate God basically present in all the forms.

9. In the country of India, there are several states and every citizen belongs to the state and simultaneously to the country (centre) also. Similarly, every citizen shall follow his/her own religion simultaneously registering in our Universal Religion or Universal Spirituality, which says that you shall follow your own religion while respecting all other religions based on unity of God and scripture.

10. Change of religion is the climax of foolishness, and the centre-God can be reached by the path of every religion. It is a waste of time to change from one religion to another religion through a horizontal journey, instead of which, the vertical straight journey from your religion to God can be taken up. It is useless to change the school of one medium to the school of another medium in the same class and it is very wise to change from the lower class to the upper class in the same medium of the same school.

11. If any person, mad of his own religion attacks your religion in a vulgar way, you should also attack his religion in the same way because a bad person will be pacified by reverse fight (harming) only and not by peaceful words (helping). If the person approaches with peaceful words, you must talk peacefully speaking the above said points. You must speak the same above points also if the bad person is pacified and is ready to hear you.

12. God Datta (Father of heaven) became energetic incarnations (like Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva etc.) for the upper worlds containing energetic beings and human incarnations for the earth containing human beings. Human beings cannot worship energetic incarnations since they are irrelevant to earth. The soul cannot even see the energetic incarnation even though severe penance is done throughout life. Hence, the devotee fond of an energetic incarnation worships the energetic incarnation through a statue or a photo containing an imagined form, which is irrelevant as per the arrangement of God. There is nothing wrong in this since such worship improves the theoretical devotion of the devotee.

13. If you recognize the contemporary human incarnation, which is relevant to you, you need not do a lifelong penance to see God for getting true spiritual knowledge. You can immediately start learning the true spiritual knowledge from the contemporary human incarnation, so that you can spend your entire life practicing that final step of Karma Yoga and reach the goal before the end of this life. If you do penance for energetic incarnations or past human incarnations, nothing appears to you since they are irrelevant to you. You are hanging on the irrelevant form of God, which is not approved by God, rejecting the relevant form of God that is approved by God.

14. God Datta is God Brahma, God Vishnu and God Shiva. Shankara is God Shiva, Ramanuja is God Vishnu and Madhva is God Brahma. Shankara is directly God Shiva and hence, has full guts to say that every soul is God and formulated almost the complete program in His time itself. Ramanuja is the incarnation of Adishesha (as per His followers) and Madhva is the incarnation of Vaayu (as per His followers). Both being servants of God claimed that the soul is different from God (dualism). The program established by God is extended by His servants just like the lecture given by a professor is extended by his research scholar-students. The fellow seeing difference among the three deities (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) and among the three divine preachers (Shankara, Ramanuja and Madhva) will fall in to everlasting hell.

15. God knows all the past, present and future whereas we know very little of the present, which often can be concluded as erroneous. We don’t understand that Krishna is the human incarnation of God and Gopikas are sages, who did a lot of penance for God for millions of births. We also don’t understand that the three strongest worldly bonds are with wealth, issues, and spouse because in every house, only these three bonds exist. The Gopikas failed in the joint test of bonds with money and issues (since they complained to Yashoda when Krishna stole butter preserved for their issues), but, succeeded in the test with spouse (dancing with Krishna in the midnight). King Pariikshit questioned sage Shuka about the illegal dance of Krishna with the Gopikas and in this test, all Gopikas passed! He did not question about the joint test in which all the Gopikas failed! Pariikshit is also a soul and blamed God Krishna unnecessarily about the passed test, covering the defect of souls about the failed test! The Gopikas are the highest and wisest sages and he finds fault with them! About the passed test also, the Gopikas pressed God several times (Rama refused them when they requested for hugging by becoming females and even Krishna threatened them about the serious punishment of sin in  hell). i) The Gopikas were very wise in deciding the three strongest worldly bonds (Eshanaa trayam) about which we cannot criticize them, ii) They pestered God especially for this test and iii) they got the fruit of Goloka, which is higher than the highest abode of God. Why should Pariikshit develop a stomach ache about God Krishna? It is told that the Bhaagavatam is a test for scholars (Vidyāvatāṃ Bhāgavate parīkṣā).

16. The conclusion is that even though God Datta entered and merged in the energetic and human incarnations, actually, all these incarnations are the incarnations of Parabrahman only because Parabrahman already merged with God Datta. Hence, human beings need not doubt about any human incarnation because finally, it is the incarnation of Parabrahman only since all the created items other than Parabrahman are just media of Parabrahman only. You must realise that you are seeing, talking, touching and living with the Parabrahman only while you are in association with the human incarnation. The same facility is given to energetic beings also with whom an energetic incarnation exists.

SOUL (Vishnu Maalaa)

1) The soul is not the goal (God). If you are already Mumbai city, there is no need for the triad of Triputi (soul, goal and path) because you need not take up the journey on the correct path to reach the goal (Mumbai city). Then, there is no need of a Guru or the Sadguru since no guide is needed to reach Mumbai city since you are the very Mumbai city!

2) The soul is mentioned in creation (Prakruti) as Paraa Prakruti by the Gita (Prakṛtiṃ viddhi Me parām, Jīva bhūtām…) and hence, the soul cannot be the creator or part of the creator. If God wishes, any being can become the creator (incarnation) since God merges with that selected being homogeneously and this is the view of Shankara. Similarly, any soul can be made very close like a limb (part) by God and this is the view of Ramanuja. All other ordinary souls are separate from God as servants from their master as per the view of Madhva.

3) When a soul becomes a part of God, then also, it happens by the wish of God only, but, the part is not the actual limb of the actual divine body of God. The devotee becomes very close to God like the limb of His body. Actually, around the divine body of God, the world exists like an outer-coat on the inner shirt (His divine body) and every soul is like a woollen thread in the outer woollen coat. This woollen coat is the Vishvaruupa (the world treated as inseparable external coat of God as per the view of Ramanuja). When the soul becomes God by the wish of God, God merges with the human being perfectly to become the human incarnation as per the view of Shankara. Both these cases are special cases of souls and the leftover souls are totally separate from God (dualism) as per the view of Madhva.

4) As per Madhva, the soul is a servant totally separated from the master-God, which means that the coat is not treated as worn by God. In all these philosophies, the ordinary soul is treated totally disconnected to God unless God does a special favour to a particular soul to make the soul as God or as an assumed part of God.

5) Shankara told that the soul, which is imaginable awareness (Inert energy is transformed into a specific work form called awareness. When the inert energy, resulted by the digestion and oxidation of food, enters into a functioning brain-nervous system, the inert energy is transformed into awareness.) is God. When Shankara came down, all (Purvamiimamsakas and Buddhists) were atheists and any atheist will not agree to the existence of God other than him. There is no other way for Shankara (or anybody in the place of Shankara) than to say i) soul is God, ii) soul exists and iii) hence, God exists. People did not understand the background of Shankara and simply believed that every soul is God. Shankara exploited the unimaginable ambition of souls to become God without any effort!

6) Shankara thought that His close disciples shall not fall in this illusion created by Himself to turn atheists into theists. So, He miraculously drank molten lead saying that He alone is God Shiva (Shivah kevalo’ham). He wrote several prayers based on the dualism of the soul with God. In Kaivalyam (Monism), the soul becomes God or equal to God by becoming incarnation. In dualistic Saayujyam, God becomes a servant of the devotee! Both these happen by the will of God only and not by the aspiration of the soul.

7) In our three holy epics (the Ramayanam, the Bharatam and the Bhagavatam), only contemporary human incarnation (Rama and Krishna) is mentioned and its devotees Hanuman and Gopikas worshipped only their contemporary human incarnations and worshipped neither energetic incarnations nor past human incarnations in the form of statues. Hanuman and Gopikas got the highest fruits of Brahma Loka and Goloka respectively. Is this not the most powerful proof to say that by catching the relevant contemporary human incarnation alone, the highest divine fruit is achieved by human devotees?

8) Every atheist told that God exists because God is himself. But, he questioned Shankara about the absence of miraculous powers with him. Then, Shankara told that the obstacle is the long stay of practical ignorance (vikshepa) turned to very bad material (mala) that can be removed by the devotion to God to get pure memory (Chitta Shuddhi) for becoming God. The ambition-blind atheist turned to theist, became a devotee reducing his original 100% ego to 50%.

9) Ramanuja appeared at this stage and stressed on theoretical devotion (bhakti) saying that the soul is a tiny part of God and not fully God. The atheists-turned theists-turned devotees continued with devotion for a long time at least to become a part of God if not God. Due to the long devotion, the ego became 1% from 50%.

10) Madhva appeared at this stage saying that the soul is separate from God and is just the servant of the God-master. By this, the soul is reformed by reducing his ego from 100% to almost 0%. In this way, all the three divine preachers are one and the same, developing the one and the same program. Without understanding their background, their disciples are quarrelling among themselves even today!

11) The soul shall vote for justice against injustice in worldly life and this pleases God very much. In spiritual life, the soul must vote for God even against justice because such justice is actually injustice as per deep analysis. God is always correct but not the soul to whom the injustice appears as justice due to limited knowledge of the soul. For example, God told Dharmaraja to tell a lie in the war so that Drona can be killed. Dharmaraja refused it thinking that telling a lie is injustice. But, it is justice in the view of God Krishna because Drona is supporting injustice of the bad Kauravaas and the justice here is that injustice can be cut by injustice. Hence, God always does justice and protects justice, which surrendered to Him in the form of a cow.

12) The Brahmana male souls feel proud while doing the Gayatri mantra and Yajna sacrifice thinking that females and lower castes are prohibited from these two honourable facilities. If you think like this, you are the biggest fool. Gayatri actually means singing the praise of God in your mother tongue and you are ignorantly reciting a hymn in Gayatri meter thinking it as the only Gayatri mantra. The real Gayatri is with them whom you think as the unfortunate. Similarly, Yajna means feeding hungry people with food associated with ghee. The hunger fire is Vaishvaanaraagni or divine fire to be worshipped with ghee-food (Ahaṃ Vaiśvānaro… Gita). When the hungry person eats, he becomes Hotaa (supplier of food) and also Havaniiya (receiver of food) and this is told in the first hymn of the first Veda called the Rugveda (Agni mīḻe… hotāram). Hence, you are doing the highest sin by burning ghee in physical fire, which is to be used to cook the food with ghee. The Veda says that the Vaishvaanara fire is the hungry guest (Vaiśvānaraḥ praviśatyatithiḥ). The Brahmin male is proud of Gayatri and Yajna thinking that females and other castes are denied of these two facilities. But, on sharp analysis, it is clearly found that the females singing songs on God are doing the real Gayatri. Similarly, the females cooking food and serving to hungry people are doing the real Yajna.

13) People reciting the Veda blindly call themselves as scholars of the Veda (Veda pandita). This is wrong because they don’t have the knowledge of the Veda especially when the Veda means knowledge (Vidul Jñāne). They shall call themselves as the reciters of the Veda (Veda paathaka). In ancient India, when the printing technology was not existing, people preserved the Veda by recitation and this avoided insertions also. But, now, the Veda is well preserved by printing technology and recitation to preserve the Veda is meaningless and now, insertions are also impossible. Hence, people shall concentrate on the knowledge of the Veda and its propagation than to blindly recite the Veda. Since the knowledge of the Veda is placed in the Puraanaas (secondary scriptures), which can be heard by all, the blind male reciter is unfortunate and all the others (females and other castes) knowing the knowledge of the Veda through the Puraanaas are very fortunate. Brahmana males are ignorant of the knowledge of the Veda, blindly reciting the Veda (Veda Paathakaas). Females and other castes, who are forced to learn the knowledge of the Veda through secondary scriptures are becoming the real scholars of the Veda (Veda Panditaas). If anybody tries to harm others, he himself is receiving that harm by the will of God and others to be victimised are not receiving that harm and getting benefitted by the will of God.

14) The main nature of the soul is to use God for getting some solutions in practical worldly problems, which could not be solved by worldly efforts. The attention and love to God goes to a very high extent not because of the attraction to God, but, because the worldly problems to be solved are very tough. God is not the goal here but God is the instrument to solve the hard-worldly problems and this devotion is called instrumental devotion. If the attraction to God alone exists, such devotion is goal devotion since God is the goal here. Such devotion is possible in this world as we see in the example of fan devotion. The fan of a cinema hero or a political leader spends from his pocket only for all the functions of his hero and finally commits suicide when the hero dies. Unless such goal devotion (devotion due to the attraction to God only and not due to the attraction to solve worldly problems by God) develops, God will not even look at us. In  instrumental devotion also, God postpones the punishment of sins to the future with accumulated interests so that we are getting rid of the difficulties immediately. Similarly, He withdraws the good fruits from the future births for lesser values like pre-matured fixed deposits so that we think that God is brainwashed by our unreal devotion and granted good fruits without our meritorious deeds. All this is done by God with a hope that the soul will be reformed in course of time.

15) A liberated soul also takes birth along with the human incarnation of God to assist Him in His divine mission. In such rebirths, the soul is not entangled by worldly bonds. When people say that after salvation, there is no rebirth, it means the liberated soul will not take rebirth in which he/she is trapped by worldly bonds. The rebirth in which the soul is not trapped by worldly bonds is not called a rebirth at all. You should not say that the liberated soul shall not have any type of rebirth because when God Himself is taking rebirth, is the liberated soul greater than God? Liberated soul means liberated from worldly bonds due to the unimaginable attachment with God.

16) The human being on this earth must identify and catch the relevant human incarnation alone because God is coming down to earth in human form only and the human devotee can worship the statues of energetic incarnations and past human incarnations also in order to develop  personal theoretical devotion to God. The human soul must learn all the true spiritual knowledge and also respect theoretical devotion even though practical devotion or Karma Yoga is already implemented  as the final step. If knowledge and devotion exist, true love and true submissiveness exist along with Karma Yoga. If Karma Yoga alone is done believing that it gives final fruit without knowledge and devotion, such Karma Yoga becomes waste. The soul must be prepared for the tests of God Datta in practical devotion only since He never tests anybody in theoretical knowledge and theoretical devotion. The soul can avoid ego-based jealousy thinking that all merits belong to God and all defects belong to the soul. The devotee shall not insult any human being in this world so that if God is hidden in any human form, there will be no chance of the devotee insulting the hidden human incarnation.

PATH (Shiva Maalaa)

1) Before taking the journey in the correct path to reach God for permanent association (Yoga), you must know (Jnaana Yoga) the details of the goal, yourself and the in-between correct path. From this knowledge, you get the details of the goal and develop theoretical devotion (Bhakti Yoga) towards the goal. This attraction to the goal will make you to put practical efforts (Karma Yoga) to reach the goal.

2) Jnaana Yoga is compared to water, Bhakti Yoga is compared to manure and Karma Yoga is compared to the mango plant that finally gives you the mango fruit. Even if you have a hundred tanks of water and a hundred bags of manure, you cannot get a single mango fruit from them. But, if there is no water, the plant will die. If there is no manure, the plant cannot grow up into a tree to give the fruit because the plant alone yields the fruit. All three are important, but, the mango plant is significantly the most important. Hence, you must concentrate on Karma Yoga finally. Practical devotion (Karma Yoga) gives the practical results and theoretical devotion (Jnaana Yoga and Bhakti Yoga) yield only theoretical results as said by God Krishna in the Gita (Ye yathā Mām…).

3) Karma Yoga is of two types:- i) Karma Samnyaasa, the sacrifice of work or energy and ii) Karma Phala Tyaaga, the sacrifice of fruit of work, which is matter. Since E=mc2, a lot of energy is equal to a very small amount of matter, the second (m) is far far greater than the first (E). A householder must do both. A saint can do only the prior since he does not earn anything.

4) God is not a beggar, who is in need of money. Hence, you cannot throw Guru Dakshina on the face of God treating Him as a beggar. He is begging you just to test your attitude. In fact, He is the donor of everything in the case of any soul. Hence, you shall not believe that practical devotion alone is sufficient to get the final result. Spiritual knowledge and theoretical devotion are essential that make you to be submissive to the Lord while doing the sacrifice of fruit of work or service.

5) In fact, the Sadguru, the receiver of your offering has given to you the entire wealth you possess, without your knowledge. If you know this, you will donate to Him with gratitude, which is not true love. The grandfather bought a biscuit packet and gave it to his daughter-in-law secretly and the mother gave to her son a biscuit for eating. If grandfather now asks for bit of the biscuit to test the real love of the grandson on him, the grandson does not know that the biscuit packet was bought by his grandfather and is thinking that his mother bought the packet. If the grandson has real love on the grandfather, he shall certainly give a bit or even the whole biscuit.

6) In the initial stage of the sacrifice of fruit of work, you shall do it as per your capacity and as per your devotion, whichever is minimum. If your capacity is 10 and your devotion to the Sadguru is 100, donate Him 10 only. Similarly, if your capacity is 100 and devotion to the Sadguru is 10, then also donate Him 10 only. If both are same (10 or 100), donate the same tallied amount.

7) Do not imitate the climax devotee doing total sacrifice to the Sadguru with ego and jealousy when you are not the climax devotee. Other tests will easily expose your actual status.

8) Theory is the source of practice. If both theory and practice exist with devotee, the practical sacrifice will be with good manners and good dedication. If manners and dedication are absent, practical devotion becomes useless. Hence, theoretical knowledge and theoretical devotion are also essential in doing Karma Yoga or practical devotion.

9) Some people ignorantly say that the sequence is karma yoga, Bhakti yoga and finally Jnaana yoga! This is not correct because the sequence is Shankara, Ramanuja and Madhva but not Madhva, Ramanuja and Shankara. First, Narada gave details of Krishna (Jnaana Yoga) to Rukmini. Then, Rukmini developed a lot of love-pain (Bhakti Yoga) for Krishna. Then, finally, Rukmini sent the priest to Krishna with a love letter (Karma Samnyaasa). When the priest returned successfully, she gave her golden chain to the priest (Karma Phala Tyaaga). Karma Samnyaasa and Karma Phala Tyaaga make Karma Yoga, which is the ultimate step.

10) When you heard the details of Mumbai city (Jnaana Yoga), you developed a lot of attraction (Bhakti Yoga) to see Mumbai city. Then, you walked up to the railway station (Karma Samnyaasa). Then, you purchased the ticket for Mumbai (Karma Phala Tyaaga) and sat in the train. By this, the effort from your side is finished. The Gita says that after Karma Phala Tyaaga, your effort stops with a full stop (Tyāgāt śānti…).

11) In ancient days also, many were rejecting the human incarnation and were concentrating on formless God or worshiping the statues and five elements because of spiritual economics, which is that anything offered to the human form is consumed by the human incarnation and in the other way (worship of statues), it can be enjoyed by us after offering. Here, the greed is the fundamental cause. An additional factor is that every human being has ego-based jealousy towards any co-human form, which is greater than us. Certainly, the greatest human incarnation of God is repelled.

12) The repulsion between common media due to ego and jealousy is the first hurdle. If the human being rejects the human form of God due to repulsion between common human media here, it missed God on earth. When it dies and reaches upper worlds in an energetic body, God in energetic body is also repelled due to the repulsion between common energetic media and the soul misses God in the upper worlds also. Hence, this repulsion between common media makes the devotee to lose God on earth as well as in upper worlds. Hence, every devotee must overcome this repulsion based on ego and jealousy towards the co-human form. The Veda says that this is the greatest loss (Mahatī vinaṣṭiḥ…).

13) The strongest among the three worldly bonds is the fascination towards the bond of children due to which the soul is not satisfied with the earnings earned based on justice. Due to the over fascination towards children, the soul is doing the injustice-sin called corruption to earn more and more money to accumulate for children. Thus, in Pravrutti or worldly life, the soul must vote for justice against injustice by reducing the fascination to children by not crossing the justified limit of love on children to avoid unjust corruption.

14) Astrology is along with spiritual knowledge only. It introduces the nine planets, the executive authorities in implementing the cycle of deeds and fruits of souls. God gave miraculous powers to the planets to do their duties. Once you accept the planets, you are accepting the miraculous power that infers the existence of the unimaginable God. The inert planets in the sky are not these astrological planets because these astrological planets are the presiding deities of those inert planets. When the periods of planets are not good, worship of the deities of the planets and worship of the corresponding forms of God are recommended along with distribution of some food items (prepared by the grains corresponding to the planets) to beggars. Hence, astrology is an associated branch of spiritual knowledge only. If an astrologer denies God, keeping the nine planets in the place of God, it is his climax ignorance. The planets are doing the service of God following the divine constitution of God and therefore, the planets are the most sincere servants of God.

15) The best service that pleases God very much is to provide essential amenities to the poorest beggars. It is foolishness to help the poor and poorer sections without completing the service to the poorest. This means that unless no poorest beggar is found on the streets, don’t make any charity to the poor and the poorer. Don’t give money directly to the poorest since they may spoil it due to their vices. Therefore, you must always donate essential items other than money to beggars. Here, there is no need of enquiring the deservingness of the receiver, be the receiver an atheist. If his life is saved, he may become a theist in the future. The funds of temples, Government and rich people must be diverted to build beggar homes in which food, clothes, medicines and shelter are provided freely to them. Giving food to visiting devotees need not be forced by saying that it is the remains of eaten food by God (Prasaadam). Instead of this, service to beggars shall only be concentrated so that no beggar is seen on the streets of the country.

16) Spiritual knowledge and theoretical devotion must be respected because knowledge is the source of theoretical devotion and theoretical devotion is the source of practical devotion or Karma Yoga. Since the Lord told that He will give theoretical boons to theoretical knowledge and theoretical devotion whereas practical boons are given to practical devotion, mere theory without practical devotion is like a body without life. But, practical devotion needs very much the assistance of theoretical knowledge and theoretical devotion in absence of which practical devotion becomes a waste due to the appearance of ego based jealousy. All the three Yogas are important and essential, but, Karma Yoga alone can give the desired final practical fruit provided knowledge and devotion assist  Karma Yoga.
