Will the tests remain the same irrespective of the form of God?

Smt. Priyanka asked: C) Is Madhura Bhakti possible for a woman, provided that a woman is devoted to Lord Kṛṣṇa only because Kṛṣṇa is the only incarnation of God, who displayed Madhura Bhakti with gopikas?

What if a female devotee is attracted towards Lord Śiva or some other form of God in the same manner? Will all the tests still remain the same, irrespective of which form of God a devotee is attracted towards, as long as they consider God as their real boy friend/ husband?

Swāmi, You are the Master of Logic and all other subjects in this universe. You also hold a sharp sword cutting away any any weeds growing on a fertile land. The weeds are the false knowledge and ignorance present today and the weed-filled land is like our mind. Swāmi, only You can plant the right seeds and help us grow. Your knowledge has the power to transform even the most infertile land to a fertile one. Your knowledge is also like a non-sugar coated antibiotic pill- the hard truth to swallow, which can cure all sorts of diseases present in us due to Your divine grace and will alone. It is the Highest Divine Truth pill, which only a doctor like You can give us. Jai Guru Datta Swāmi. At Your divine lotus feet, Priyanka

Swāmi replied:- C) All forms of God are one and the same. Even God Śiva tested the wives of sages in the same manner as Kṛṣṇa tested Gopikas. The wives of sages cursed God Śiva. This means that God is telling us the concept that unless the academic course is completed, annual examination shall not be conducted like a class test in the first month itself. Even if there is a single devotee reaching such final level as Gopikas, God will incarnate to conduct the final test. For God to take an incarnation as the examiner, it is not difficult at all, because God is always fond of coming as incarnation. It is very difficult for a soul to reach such a final stage of Gopikas. Examination will be conducted even if one candidate appears and the rule of examination of God Datta is that there are only two results, which are pass and fail. 100/100 is pass and even 99/100 is fail.

Kṛṣṇa told that He is born again and again, whenever there is a need for Him (Yadā yadā hi...- Gītā). Will the examiner, who has set question paper for March examination will not set another question paper for September examination? This examination is the most important final examination because salvation from all worldly bonds including bond with body, bond with life etc., are also tested. For such most important examination, the examiner is always ready and the question paper already set is also ready. Only the candidate has to be ready for which millions of births involved in serious penance are required. Every form of God is one and the same and every form of God is Kṛṣṇa Himself.

Quarterly examination is on 33% syllabus, half yearly examination is on 66% syllabus and annual examination is on 100% syllabus. There are three strongest worldly bonds, which are to be tested in the context of love to God. These are money, issues and life-partner. In quarterly test, money is tested by preaching sacrifice of fruit of work (Karma phala tyāga), which is stealing butter in general. In half yearly test, love to issues is tested along with love to money as a joint test of both strongest bonds by stealing butter preserved for issues. In the annual test that includes both quarterly and half-yearly tests, both strongest bonds (wealth and issues) are tested along with the third strongest bond (life-partner). Even though the third bond is tested in the final female-birth, the other two bonds are also tested in this birth since it is test for all the worldly bonds because if all the three strongest bonds are defeated before the love to God, it means automatically that all the worldly bonds are detached before the attachment to God. In this way, Madhura Bhakti is not test of one worldly bond, but, is the final test of all worldly bonds. One confines to one bond only and treats Madhura Bhakti as a duet song of cinema shooting! It is detachment of all worldly bonds in the final birth due to penance performed for millions of births of the devotee. There is lot of serious background in Madhura Bhakti.

Kṛṣṇa is God Viṣṇu, Rādhā is God Śiva and other Gopikas were the greatest sages worshipped by even angels! It is not simple surrender of the body to God, which can be done even by a prostitute for the sake of money. Even the life along with the body is sacrificed when Kṛṣṇa left His gross body. Earlier to this incident, their husbands died in mutual war, but Gopikas did not give their lives for them. Even when Kṛṣṇa opposed their surrender of bodies through dance, they threatened Him by saying that they will sacrifice their lives by jumping into Yamunā river if Kṛṣṇa is not interested in them! The love fire present in Rādhā or any Gopika is sufficient to destroy this entire world as final dissolution (Mahāpralaya). Rādhā being the incarnation of God Śiva has also hidden third eye, which is the spiritual knowledge (Jñāna netram) along with love to God as the fire. Without knowing all this background, Madhura Bhakti is misunderstood and hence, it is told that understanding the Bhāgavatam (Madhura Bhakti) is the real test for the real spiritual knowledge (Vidyāvatāṃ Bhāgavate parīkṣā), which alone gave salvation to king Parīkṣit in 7 days! Even the greatest sage Śuka could not follow the real background of the Bhāgavatam. When Parīkṣit asked Śuka that how Kṛṣṇa touched others’ wives through illegal sex being the protector of justice in this world, Śuka could not answer this question directly. The answer given by Śuka was irrelevant to the question asked because he said that others should not imitate Kṛṣṇa.

The reason for non-imitation was not given by Śuka and only God Datta gave the background reason recently through Datta Swami. The background is that it is the test of one strongest worldly bond (Dāreṣaṇā) along with the other two strongest worldly bonds (Dhaneṣaṇā and Putreṣaṇā) so that it is the final annual test covering all the three strongest worldly bonds (Eṣaṇā trayam) by passing which liberation from all worldly bonds due to love to God (salvation) is achieved by the devotee. If one understands the real meaning of salvation, the real meaning of Madhura Bhakti can be understood. So far, starting from the beginning of creation, millions and millions of years have passed away and so far only 12 devoted souls reached Goloka! Hence, there need not be fear that this concept will spoil the entire world. Even an ignorant soul cannot imitate Kṛṣṇa in this concept because the lifting the hill on finger is a visual miracle done by Kṛṣṇa standing as the compound gate of this concept!

We must remember one point very very seriously, which is that this Nivṛtti-field is not at all introduced by God at any time, who is always limited to the boundaries of Pravṛtti only regarding His creation by saying that His incarnation is only for the support of justice in Pravṛtti (Dharmasaṃsthāpanārthāya — Gītā). This Nivṛtti is discovered, developed and dragged to climax by the devotees only. In fact, God always opposed this Nivṛutti, Rāma refused sages to embrace Him as ladies and Kṛṣṇa opposed Gopikas threatening that they will go to hell if they love Him through the line of illegal sex. This Nivṛtti is already mingled with Pravṛtti and such Nivṛtti is the initial phase of interest (Śraddhā) by which even a soul can become human incarnation if God is willing so.

The sages sacrificed all the worldly bonds for the sake of God while entering the advanced stage of madness in Nivṛtti. One day they discovered that they could not surrender their body to God since they were males and that alone remains even though they have surrendered all the other items of their lives. Such discovery led to the birth of Madhura Bhakti. Immediately they decided to become females due to their miraculous power and embrace God by leaving their false life-partners for the sake of their real life-partner. Then, God Rāma told them that this leftover test will be done in their next final real female-birth. Hence, we shall not blame God in any way in this matter, who has taken sufficient care also for our discovery! This field is the most powerful field in the spiritual knowledge and at the same time, the most dangerous field if not understood properly and completely. Unfortunately, this field yields the highest fruit called Goloka (Nivṛttistu mahā phalā). This field shall be kept secret as far as possible for the possibility of its quick misinterpretation (Rahasyametaduttamam..., Ātmānaṃ rahasi sthitaḥ...—Gītā). Apart from this idea, another idea to maintain secrecy was not to develop unnecessary clash with the worldly bonds, who can never understand the climax importance of God and this point is well explained in Yoga by the curved serpent journey of the soul to avoid the rotating wheels like worldly bonds without direct clash by straight journey. This shall be explained in detail whenever there is a pressing need only. God Kṛṣṇa did this test only in the midnight and at a far place of forest called Bṛndāvanam. The secrecy was maintained by Him for its fast misinterpretation and exploitation only. He declared it as the sin (while threatening Gopikas) and underwent its punishment for the sake of Gopikas for their unimaginable madness of love in which they were prepared to take the punishment in hell. This path has the climax of fear and risk up to its last inch and the highest fruit is given by God since even God was astonished at the climax of madness of the love of devotees towards Him. This highest fruit is not ordained to this path by rule, but, was created by God since even God became mad of the love of devotee and sat at the feet of devotee as servant! God was so much pleased for this unimaginable love of the devotee so that the devotee is relieved not only from the sin committed in this mad path, but also relieved the devotee from all other sins by undergoing all the punishments (Ahaṃ tvā sarvapāpebhyo...).

My answers in which unimaginable concepts of true knowledge are preached are due to the God Datta merged with Me since the unimaginable God giving unimaginable true concepts is already merged with God Datta. These answers are coming from the unimaginable God or Parabrahman through God Datta and through Datta Swami because God Datta merged with Datta Swami. The entire credit shall go to God Datta only because the unimaginable God is merged with Datta forever eternally. Is this answer not a clean bold for the arguments on Madhurabhakti?
