Are reservations provided by the constitution to backward castes justified?

Posted on: 18/07/2024

[Prof. JSR Prasad asked:- Sāṣṭāṅga namaskāram Swami, What is Your comment on the reservations provided by the constitution for the backward castes?]

Swami replied:- The basis for providing reservations for the backward castes decided by birth is that in the past time, these backward castes were suppressed by the upward castes due to which the backward castes did not have full encouragement in their studies and hence, did not get good jobs. We agree to this allegation because since the beginning of this Kali age (since about 5000 years onwards), Pravrutti did not proceed...

Posted on: 04/07/2024

Swami answers questions of Shri Vaibhav Pandey

Posted on: 03/07/2024

1. I want to know about myself.

[A question by Shri D. Vaibhav Pandey]

Swami replied:- There is nothing in you, which is not known to you. It is only an illusion to think that there is something in you, which is not known to you. If you search for something, which is not known to you because it does not exist in you, you may dig yourself to any extent, you’ll get nothing. It is a false thinking that you are God or God is in you. That may give some satisfaction and encouragement...

Swami answers questions of Shri Hrushikesh

Posted on: 03/07/2024

Shall we fix some amount to be donated to God throughout the life?

Posted on: 03/07/2024

[A question by Smt. Vaishnavi]

Swami replied:- My advice is that you keep something for present needs and save something for the future needs. Also, save something to give to your children. God does not need your money because really, there is no need for Him. God only tests you to know whether you possess only theoretical false love or practical true love also. Only in this angle, you can offer Guru Dakshina to God. Except this one angle...
