ATTACHMENT TO WORLD CHANGES TO ATTACHMENT OF GOD IN FINAL STAGE

Posted on: 26/10/2014

Dr. Nikhil asked about the pressures in the worldly life and their consequent effects on the spiritual life.

Swami replied: There are three stages. In the first stage, the human being is very much involved in the family life and is strongly bound by the family bonds. This deep attachment is the reason for disturbance and tension. You are watching a cinema. You are not attached to any role in the picture. You are totally detached from every role. You know that the whole story is...

GRASPING OF SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE DEPENDS ON INTENSITIES OF QUALITIES

Posted on: 23/10/2014

[Deepavali Day] Swami replied to the questions of some students of Dr. Nikhil Kothurkar, working in Amrita University, Coimbatore as Associate Professor. 1. How can imparting spiritual knowledge to society from childhood control sin in society?...]

Swami Replied: The possibility of grasping the spiritual knowledge exists in certain souls only based on the intensities of the qualities developed during millions of births. Certain souls become completely adamant without any possibility of the entry of the spiritual knowledge. You can sow the seed in soil but not in a rock. Such condemned souls are called as demons. Kauravas are such demons...

DON'T ATTRIBUTE SIN TO INCARNATION OF GOD

Posted on: 18/10/2014

Dr. Nikhil asked: “Swami Sampurnanda says that Sai Baba ate meat and hence, cannot be pious. He also says that Dattatreya is only the second son of sage Atri while the first son was Chandra or Moon and the third son was sage Durvasa. Hence, Saibaba as the incarnation of Dattatreya has no significance and calling Him as God is not correct.”

Swami replied: The first point was already answered by Me. Non-vegetarian food is certainly not justified since a co-living being is killed for that purpose. But, God follows the wrong culture also to become friendly with wrong people before diverting them from wrong path. The person, who jumps into the mud...

GOD COMES DOWN FROM HIS UNIMAGINABLE STATE TO IMAGINABLE STATE IN INCARNATION

For Scholars Posted on: 14/10/2014

Shri Phani asked: “You said that the Veda says that God created this (Tat) and God entered this (Tat). ‘This’ (Tat) means this entire world. The same word (Tat) is again used. This means God created this entire world and also entered this entire world. Therefore, all this world is God as stated in the Veda (Sarvam Khalvidam..., Eeshaavaasyamidam...).”

Swami replied: If somebody says that you have entered a house, does it mean that you have entered all the 100 rooms of the house? After entering the house, you may sit in one room. People will say that you have entered the house and are present in the house. Nobody says that you have entered...

ADI SHAKTI OR INERT PRIMORDIAL ENERGY IS THE FIRST ITEM OF CREATION

For Scholars Posted on: 03/10/2014

[Vijayadashami Day] Shri Ajay asked: “Lord Shiva is said to be the husband of Goddess Durga, Who is the primordial power (Adi Shakti) and from Whom Goddess Saraswati, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Parvati emerged out. Again, Lord Shiva is said to be the husband of Goddess Parvati only. How to reconcile this concept?”

Swami replied: This is a good question, which is relevant to Vijayadashami the festival of today related to Goddess Durga. We can understand anything perfectly provided you know the essential meanings for which these personified names stand. Adi Shakti means the first item of the creation...

HIGHEST GOD ACHIEVED WITH HIGHEST DIFFICULTY

Posted on: 15/08/2014

Shri Ramanath asked “What is the best way to please God? What is meant by sixth sense? I think that the best effort is that type of service for which the fruit is to become the human incarnation”.

Swami replied: What best pleases somebody should be expressed by that person himself. What best pleases you need not be the best that pleases God. People generally rub their liking on God and propagate that their liking is the best path to please God and hence, everybody should follow it. Suppose you are a good singer. You will propagate that God is always pleased...

SCRIPTURE ALONE IS PATH FOR MANKIND BELONGING TO THAT RELIGION ONLY

Posted on: 13/08/2014

Prophet Mohammad tried to bring the unity among religions in His region even facing terrible wars and hence, He should be praised as the pillar of the Universal Religion of the world. Similarly, Shankara tried to bring the unity of the religions in India and faced cruel fights like black magic and should be considered as another pillar of Universal Religion of the world. The concept of the Universal Religion is very important in the present days of violence created based on inter-religious splits. You can follow your religion sincerely without looking...

REALIZATION MAKES YOU ENJOY MISERY

Posted on: 13/08/2014

Shri Durga Prasad asked “You told that the realisation of unreal world with respect to the real God gives detachment, which forms the basis for the enjoyment of misery. But, You said that the intensive enjoyment of misery comes only from ignorance as in the case of Human incarnation. How to reconcile these two in the case of the human being, wishing to enjoy the misery?”

Swami replied: If you take the case of Human incarnation, It is a two component system in which the unimaginable God and imaginable human being co-exist. The nature of the human being is always ignorance and the intensive experience of the misery can be attained by God when God identifies with such ignorant human being...

MORE ELABORATE SCRIPTURE MEANS MORE QUESTIONS FROM DEVOTEES

Posted on: 12/08/2014

Mr. Tanweer Ahmad responded to a message given by Swami on 11th August, 2014 regarding the topic that Mohammad is the last Prophet. His main points are: 1) the word ‘last’ (Khatam) means perfect and Mohammad was perfect and hence, this does not mean that after Mohammad no Prophet comes. 2) Since Mohammad is perfect, even if the Prophets come in future, they are like His shadow-reflections only and not as another light.

Swami replied: I appreciate the sincerity and devotion to Mohammad in the case of Tanweer Ahmad. Since he has given the clarifications of the word ‘last’ in excellent way, I consider him also as a Prophet after Mohammad. His explanation itself is a scripture. But, doubts always come on every scripture and further clarifications...

DETACHMENT OF WORLD NECESSARY TO ENJOY MISERY

Posted on: 12/08/2014

Shri Durga Prasad asked “Enjoyment of misery is not possible for any human being without the grace of God. Atheists can never dream this since they cannot get the grace of God”.

Swami replied: Enjoyment of misery is possible to any human being including the atheist. The atheist is also one of the children of God. In fact, the father pays more attention to the wrong child and helps it also. Every human being, being the child of God is entitled to the grace of God just like every actor including the villain is entitled for the remuneration..
