What is the purpose of studying Ramayanam, Mahabharatam and Shrimad Bhaagavatam?

[Maha Shiva Raatri Satsanga on 8th March 2024 at Hyderabad]

[Ms. Thrylokya asked:- When the contemporary human incarnation is not caught, what is the use of studying Ramayanam, Mahabharatam and Shrimad Bhaagavatam?

Swami replied:- A scientist does experiment in the laboratory and draws a conclusion from the study of that experiment. Then, he applies that conclusion to the present practical situation to show benefit to the present society. Our spiritual people study these three epics with a lot of devotion accepting the concept of contemporary human incarnation. They also accept that Rama and Krishna were contemporary human incarnations for Hanuman and Radha. They also accept that Hanuman and Radha got the highest fruits by concentrating on their contemporary human incarnations. Up to this, the study of the experiment is done. But, they don’t draw the conclusion that the contemporary human incarnation must be caught to get salvation. They also don’t apply this drawn conclusion to search for the contemporary human incarnation. They were not present in the times of Rama and Krishna like Hanuman and Radha. They also know very well that Hanuman and Radha did worship of neither energetic incarnations nor past human incarnations. They start worshipping either energetic incarnation or past human incarnation in the form of statues, which was not done at all by Hanuman and Radha. Therefore, such devotees are learned stupids. They don’t approach the present living district collector for signature on a required form of application. They either proceed to the collector of another district (energetic incarnation of the upper world) or proceed to the late district collector (past human incarnation) for the signature while the present district collector is available in his office that is situated near their house!
