Message on Shri Ramanavami (10-04-2022)

Posted on: 10/04/2022

Rāma always doing human efforts without miracles stands for Pravṛtti or worldly life. Kṛṣṇa always doing miracles stands for Nivṛtti or spiritual life. First Rāma came and then only Kṛṣṇa came. This means that first you must concentrate on Pravṛtti to settle in worldly life and then build up for Nivṛtti. Rāma or Pravṛtti is the unseen foundation hidden in the earth on which the mighty multistoried mansion representing Kṛṣṇa is erected. If you jump straight...

Posted on: 04/04/2022

Shri Ganesh V asked: Padanamskaram Swamiji, As far as I understand from reading Your knowledge, I have understood that the reason for the Vedas being the top most authority for spiritual knowledge is due to the fact that it was preserved through oral recitation and superimposed with a Vedic meter so as to prevent any corruption in scriptures.
