Is knowledge of pot in human incarnation also due to His unimaginable power only?

Posted on: 09/08/2022

[Mrs. Priyanka asked: Even when the unimaginable God comes down as human incarnation, He "knows" about the pot due to His unimaginable power only and not because of awareness of the human incarnation right?]

Swami Replied: In the case of the human incarnation, the unimaginable God merged with God Datta, and God Datta merged with the human being component. Finally, it means the unimaginable God merged with the soul and body of the human being. Whenever the unimaginable God wants to express Himself, the body or the soul of the human being component behaves with unimaginable power. Because there was a perfect merge of unimaginable God...

Posted on: 09/08/2022

[Shri Bharat Krishna asked: The following question is from Shri. D. Subhas Chandra Bose.

Posted on: 08/08/2022

[Shri Balaji came from Bangalore exclusively to have Satsanga with Shri Datta Swami and other Devotees. Shri Balaji asked this question.]

Swami Replied:  The word Praana denotes Parabrahman or God Datta only because God is expressed as breath or life in the sense of simile expressed as metaphor. Madhva uses the word MukhyaPraana, which means...

Posted on: 08/08/2022

[Shri Balaji came from Bangalore exclusively to have Satsanga with Shri Datta Swami and other Devotees. Shri Balaji asked this question.]

Happiness is only a feeling in the mind. But humans seem to be craving for happiness all the time sometimes using even spirituality only as a means to attain happiness. Is it possible to get out of this craving for happiness and focus only on Love towards God like Sudaama whose Love for Lord Krishna was always High even in the time of extreme poverty? Currently, I feel if there is a difficult phase with...

God is said to be breath or life. Does this have the meaning that God is connected to Praanayaama or breathing exercises?

Posted on: 07/08/2022

[Shri Balaji came from Bangalore exclusively to have Satsanga with Shri Datta Swami and other Devotees. Shri Balaji asked this question.]

Swami Replied: If people understand the figure of speech called metaphor (rūpaka alaṅkāra) as a concentrated form of simile (upamā alaṅkāra) alone, all these misunderstandings would not have come. God is compared to breath or life in the sense that just like all the inert (heart functioning etc.) and non-inert (activities of brain) activities of the body take place as long as breathing is going on...

[Shri Balaji came from Bangalore exclusively to have Satsanga with Shri Datta Swami and other Devotees. Shri Balaji asked this question.]

Swami Replied: Karma Phala Tyaga means sacrifice of the fruit earned by your hard work. If you go to a shop to purchase an item, the shop keeper will not say that he will sell any item in the shop if you can pay only the fruit of your hard work. For the shop keeper, it is immaterial whether the money paid by you is the fruit of your hard work or the ancestral money got by you. God in the Gita...

Posted on: 07/08/2022

Swami Replied: Hanuman reached Brahma Loka and is given the boon that He will become the future Brahma (this means that God Brahma will merge with Him in the future since God Brahma or God Datta is the Eternal first energetic incarnation). Hanuman got monistic salvation because He is to become one with God. This is the highest fruit and Hanuman got this highest fruit...
