Swami answers questions of Shri Satthi Reddy

1. Will a debt bond develop with the girl when masturbation is done imaging her?

[Shri Satthi Reddy asked: Mee PaadaPadmalaku Namaskaram Swamiji. Swamiji, a person who is addicted to masturbation, is theoretically visualizing and creating the illusion of his or her opposite gender in mind, and with his or her hand practically releasing semen by doing so forcefully, it means he or she loses his or her energy. Will Runaanubhandha happen to that girl or boy. Please explain, Swamiji.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™]

Swami replied:- There is no debt-bond in such false imaginations.

2. Will there be a sin when masturbation is done even though physical contact did not happen?

[In the above question, theoretical sin is converted to practical action by releasing semen with the hand forcefully. Even though he or she does not come into contact physically, will there also be a practical sin? Please explain Swamiji.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™]

Swami replied:- There is no specific sin, but, the health will be damaged seriously.

3. If a wife influences her husband to do a sin, will she get a share of that?

[Mee PaadaPadmalaku Namaskaram Swamiji, Swamiji, I heard a story about Sage Valmiki, in which he asks his wife whether she shares his sins, which his wife rejects. As per the dharma, the wife won't get her share of the sin of the husband, for suppose if she influences her husband to do sin, then also she won't get part of the sin. Please explain, Swamiji.]

Swami replied:- Yes. As initiator (preraka), she gets equal fruit.

4. If the roles of wife and husband are reversed, will husband get the share of sin done by wife?

[From the above question, if roles were exchanged, like husband taking responsibility for household work and wife taking responsibility for earning, in that case, bharta will become bharya and bharya will become bharta. In that case, will the husband who is playing the bhaarya role also get sin even though he did not influence her to do sin. Please explain Swamiji.]

Swami replied:- Even in the case of the wife, she will not share the sin of the husband. She only shares the merit of the husband provided she is a perfect housewife. Hence, reversing does not change the picture in anyway.

5. Does sex have to be done only in a dark, isolated environment, even during the day or during asura Sandhya time?

[Mee PaadaPadmalaku Namaskaram Swamiji, This is not question. From below scenarios, the questions were asked. Swamiji, sex should not be done in asura sandhya time and in the daytime it should be daytime. Swamiji, in one context, a conversation happened between Satyavathi and Sage Paraashara while crossing the boat. Sage Paraashara got sexual feelings towards Satyavathi and asked her to come in contact, but she told him that it was a day and even her body was smelling. Sage Paraashara turned day into night miraculously and her body turned good again. Later, Sage Vyaasa was born to her. The questions are, Sex should be done only in a dark, isolated environment without disturbing anyone, even during the day or asura Sandhya time. In the above context, Sage Vyaasa was born, but in the Ramanaya context, Ravana, Kumbhakarna, etc., were born and in the Mahabharata, Hidimbha and Bhima primarily contacted Ghatokacha during the day. Please explain the administration of God, Swamiji. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ ]

Swami replied:- Sex during twilight is prohibited because it is auspicious time for worshipping God. Sex is prohibited in the daytime, but, Paraashara created darkness. You may say that anybody can create darkness by closing doors and windows. But, Paraashara is a great sage with a lot of power from penance for God. Great people should not be imitated by ordinary weak souls.

6. Does the bad odour from the body of Satyavati come from the fact that she was born from fish?

[Was getting bad odour from the body of Satyavati, as she was born from fish, the only reason or any related bad karma because the bad odour coming from her body could be smelled by people, even if they were a few miles. Sage Paraashara touched her forehead, she smelled like an angel. Bad odour comes from selfishness, too, because in my case, this happens. Please explain, Swamiji.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™]

Swami replied:- Yes. You said correctly.

7. What is the hidden yoga secret behind Sati Maata, with her toe scratching on earth?

[Mee Paadapadmalaku Namaskaram Swamiji, Swamiji, what is the hidden yoga secret behind Sati Maata, with her paadaguli (toe), scratching on earth? The fire came outside from earth automatically, and she burned herself. Not only that, elders say girls should scratch on earth with their toes, even in traditional ways. Please explain Swamiji πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™]

Swami replied:- Satii Maata is the incarnation of Adiparaashakti, the unimaginable power of Parabrahman or unimaginable God. Creation of fire is a very small thing in her case.

8. Draupadi loved Bhima and Arjuna more than Dharma Raja, Nakula and Sahadeva. Why?

 [Swamiji Draupadi loved Bhima and Arjuna more than Dharma Raja, Nakula, and Sahadeva. What were the reasons behind this? Please explain, Swamiji.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™]

Swami replied:- Draupadi loved Arjuna more than anyone because he actually won her.

9. Why were men not attracted by Lord Krishna even though Rama and Krishna were the Human Incarnations of the same Vishnu Himself?

 [Swamiji, in the context of the Ramayana, it is said that men were attracted by Lord Rama. In context of Mahabharatha, Gopikas were attracted by Lord Shri Krishna, who expressed 16 kalas, why were men not attracted to Lord Krishna even though Lord Rama and Lord Krishna were Human Incarnations of the same Lord Vishnu Himself? Swamiji, please explain SwamijiπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™.]

Swami replied:- Krishna means the beautiful personality that attracts every soul (KarαΉ£ati iti KαΉ›αΉ£αΉ‡aαΈ₯). Gopikas had to be tested by God Krishna for their worldly bonds and this may look to you that females were more attracted by God Krishna.
