Swami answers questions of Shri Jayesh Pandey

Shri Jayesh Pandey asked:- Padanamaskaram Swami Ji!

1. What is the Vigyan of Shakti?

Swami replied:- Vijnaan means scientific analysis. Shakti is inert energy and its forms are matter and awareness.

2. What is the Vigyan of Karma?

Swami replied:- Karma or action is a form of inert energy only.

3. What if a person forms a bond of enmity with God?

Swami replied:- Enmity is not called as a bond.

4. Why are the conversations with hellish deities very wild?

Swami replied:- Because they are hellish!

5. Who is the Ultimate Satanic form of God?

Swami replied:- Every form is only creation of God, which need not be His form. His form means that He should exist in it. Satan is actually the creation of devilish mind and thus, it is not a direct creation of God, but direct creation of a part of the creation that became bad in due course.

6. What is the relation between God Hanuman and Goddess Durga according to their origin of manifestation?

Swami replied:- Both are one and the same. Hanuman is the form of God Shiva and Goddess Durga is the joint form of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. In God Shiva, God Datta exists in whom the Parabrahman exists. Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati are the powers of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. There is no difference between the possessor of power and the power. Hence, the divine trinity containing God Datta contains Parabrahman. Finally, the essence is Parabrahman and all these names and forms are only external formal dresses only. All the deities are Parabrahman only (Ekamevādvitīyaṃ Brahma - Veda).

7. What does the prefix ‘Maha’ before the names of God signify?

Swami replied:- Maha means greatest, which applies to Parabrahman. Every divine form is ultimately Parabrahman only. Parabrahman is unimaginable and hence, the names and forms help us to see and worship Parabrahman expressed in various media or dresses.

8. Maha Brahma and Maha Rudra are the embodiments of Shiva and Maha Vishnu is the embodiment of Shakti. Is this statement correct?

Swami replied:- You cannot find any difference among Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra. All the three are the media of God Datta and God Datta is the medium of Parabrahman. Always try to develop the view of unity and not the view of difference as far as the divine forms of God are concerned.

9. Is Lord Hanuman the incarnation of Lord Shankar or the 11th Rudra?

Swami replied:- When there is no difference, how does this question find its place?

10. God approaches in the same way as the seeker does. Can You explain the Vigyan behind this statement?

Swami replied:- God has taken several media differing in names, forms and qualities so that the devotee can choose any form that suits to his/her liking.

12. Can You explain about the four Varnas in Macro Cosmic View with examples?

[Below Your Feet! Jayesh Pandey]

Swami replied:- The souls interested in developing spiritual knowledge in society are called Brahmanas (Not the reverse). The souls interested in administration by punishing injustice and establishing justice are called Kshtriyas (Not the reverse). The souls interested in maintaining the business are called Vaishyas (Not the reverse). The souls interested in production of food grains are called Shuudras (Not the reverse). ‘Not the reverse’ means, for example, the statement “the souls born as Brahmanas are interested in developing spiritual knowledge” – is wrong. Similarly, you can apply this to every caste. God said that caste is established by the professions and their concerned talents and qualities. This is the basis of classification of caste system as per God since this is told in the Gita.
