After Adam committed the original sin, why did Jesus not immediately incarnate and redeem the sin?

Posted on: 14/06/2021

Śrī Anil asked: One of the teachings of the Christianity is the belief that sin entered into humanity through Adam. Jesus came to redeem the fallen humanity through His death—by shedding His pure blood. In an online discussion, a person asked that when redemption required pure blood, why did God come so late as Jesus? Had Jesus died right after Adam sinned, it would have been fine. Why did He delay and allow sin to spread in the world?

Swami replied: You should not take everything in the literal sense. The inner sense must be grasped. The deep sense...

How did the vengeful God of the Old Testament suddenly become the all loving God of the New Testament?

Posted on: 14/06/2021

Śrī Anil asked: In an online discussion, a person asked how Christians can believe in the tolerant, peaceful, and non-violent teachings of Jesus Christ and also believe in the wrathful and intolerant God of the Old Testament, who is full of condemnation and vengeful killing? Are the two views of God not incompatible? Before the arrival of Jesus, people in that region were obeying the laws of Moses...

God doesn't like self-imposed slavery but what about self-imposed ignorance by human incarnation of God?

Posted on: 13/06/2021

Shri Kishor Ram asked: Pādanamaskāraṃ Swāmiji. In Your recent answer to Nitin's question on the slavery of God, You explained the difference between self-imposed slavery and self-desired slavery. Self-imposed slavery is out of force and it is against one's desire whereas self-desired slavery is natural and is as per the desire of one self. But in the case of Human Incarnation, God self-imposed ignorance upon Himself based on the circumstances. In this case, the self-imposition of ignorance is against the desire of God? Because self-imposed...

Posted on: 13/06/2021

Smt. Sudha Rani asked: Pādanamaskāraṃ Swāmi, 1. Thank you Swāmi for everything. In Christianity, the first Energetic incarnation is called as the Father in the Heaven. Even Trimūrtis come from Lord Datta. So, can we call Lord Datta as the father of Trimūrtis?

Swāmi replied:- 1) Any incarnation of God Datta is God Datta Himself because God Datta is in another medium. God Datta Himself is a mediated God. A mediated God wearing another medium above the original medium...

1. Did Daksha perform Homa with Laukikagni contradicting the right meaning given in the Vedas?

Why is Lord Dattatreya not heard in any of the sects?

Posted on: 13/06/2021

Smt. Sudha Rani asked: In each sect in Hinduism (such as Śaivism, Vaiṣṇavism, Śākteyam, Gāṇāpatyam), other Gods are mentioned with lesser priority. Ex: In Śaivism, Lord Viṣṇu and Lord Brahmā are given lesser importance compared to Lord Śiva. But we don't get to hear about Lord Dattātreya with relation to any of these Gods in any of these sects. Please throw some light on this. - At Your Divine Lotus feet, Sudha.

Swāmi replied:- Vaiṣṇavas give importance to God Viṣṇu treating...

What is the 'Shakti patam' that happened in Shrisailam from Sun-god?

Posted on: 13/06/2021

Swāmi Replied:- Śaktipātam is only the transfer of power of God to a devotee without the entry of God into the devotee. Even demons attained the miraculous powers from God. Actually, the real background is that God is never separated from His power. When God transfers His power to a devoted demon due to his rigid penance, it only means that whenever the demon is performing a miracle, invisible...

Why doesn't God like to be recognised by every human being on the earth?

Posted on: 11/06/2021

Human Incarnation takes birth in every Yuga or human generation for His devotees who prayed for Him. And the devotees recognises Him. Why doesn't He like to be recognised by every human being on the earth? Are they not His children? He is the Father of every human being who takes proper care of all. Aren't the majority of present generation missing the divinity and true knowledge preached by Him? Swāmiji, do enlighten me and forgive me for my ignorance. At Your lotus feet 🌷🌹 Anita Renkuntla

Should the employees take rest while watching a shift?

Posted on: 11/06/2021

Śrī Ganesh asked: Pādanamaskāraṃ swāmiji, I am working in a manufacturing unit and I watch a shift at night at least twice a week. Most of my seniors at work believe that it is harmful for our health to be awake at night and do work. So they share the responsibility between two people and each takes rest for a specified time. This is against the code of conduct for employees within the company. Should the employees take rest while watching a shift? I am asking this to You because...

Is it that once soul is liberated, it is always liberated and goes back to God in the upper world?

Posted on: 11/06/2021

Smt. Priyanka asked: In the case of liberated souls, they have attained mokṣa due to the grace of God and have close association with God in the upper worlds as well. They are free from the cycle of births and deaths based on their karma. Having said that, when they are born again along with God, are they still prone to committing sins and accumulating merits and demerits for their actions and fall back into the cycle of Karma? Or is it that once liberated, they are always liberated and go back to God in the upper world...
