Did Sudama have any desire while sacrificing to Lord Krishna?

Posted on: 18/06/2022

Smt. Chhanda asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, while going through the discourse of Approach to God, I got the following two doubts. In one place it is written that when approaching Lord Krishna, Sudama was prepared to undergo the result of his sins and suffer in poverty and at the same time he also did the highest sacrifice in the form of ahandful of rice. In this way a devotee should not ask or even think about the removal of his difficulties by God. He should be prepared to undergo the results of his sins. He should offer Guru Dakshina (donation) to the human form of God to his level best. Then God will remove his difficulties. In another place it is written that Sudama went back home without begging anything from the Lord. Yet Sudama...

Swami replied:- Satyabhama is the incarnation of Goddess Earth, who was tolerating the sins of demons. We shall not say that she is tolerating God indirectly because God gave several boons to demons. Demons did severe...

Shri Soumyadip Mondal asked: How can we find happiness from inside? How can we be happy with what we have? By Soumyadip Mondal

[By Shri K. Ravinder Reddy]

Today, I am going to briefly explain four miraculous experiences given by Swami to me. I understood from my real-life situations that love for/of God is superior to the worldly love and relations.

I was very satisfied and had a Divine feeling that the house was a shrine or a temple...

Posted on: 30/05/2022

[By Shri Ganesh Venkatesh]

This miracle happened when I was newly introduced to Swamy's knowledge. For a week I was thinking to myself that why don't I ask God for Bhakti rather than asking for materialistic boons and I kept on praying to God for that. The following week (17/11/2020) during the Satsang, I asked a question to Swamy. “Is having a desire to attain correct spiritual knowledge...

[Everybody prays to God for salvation because the actual meaning of salvation is not known. If the actual meaning is known, everybody will run away from praying God for salvation. Everybody thinks that salvation is enjoyment of divine bliss and this impression is created by cinemas, which show the soul after salvation with immense bliss moving in a beautiful garden! The actual meaning of salvation is liberation...

Divine Experiences of Shri Phani Kumar

[By Shri. Phani Kumar]

Shri Phani Spoke: Swami, I would like to talk about a miracle that happened in my life. This miracle happened not only in my life but in every devotee’s life who is present before a contemporary Human Incarnation of God. Identifying a Contemporary Human Incarnation of God (Satguru), approaching Him, talking to Him, discussing with Him and learning from Him itself is a greatest miracle. This happens in every devotee’s life who identified a Satguru. You perform so many miracles but identifying You as Human Incarnation is greatest miracle that is (Maya Mathiam Tharamtite...Gita). So, meeting Swami itself is a greatest miracle...

Jñeyaprakaraṇe bhinne, tattadanvaya ujjhitaḥ ||

[All the ancient philosophers, who developed various theories are quarrelling with each other because the concept of totality is missing. Every theory is correct when it is applied to a part of the total concept as in the case of blind people studying the form of an elephant by touching different parts of the elephant (Andhagaja nyāya). The elephant is like a pillar if its leg is touched. The same elephant...

[It is a very clear point that creation of energy was the first process of God and hence, energy was the first item that was created by God.  From energy, matter and awareness came out with the help of which various inert and non-inert items were designed by God resulting in this vast universe.
