BOOK OF SPIRITUALITY

Posted on: 01/01/2003

All the religions in the world are different feathers of the same bird i.e., different colors on the same God. There is only one God and there is only one universe. Similarly, man is also one. Man should aim for that one God. Man should belong to all the religions in the universe. He should pick up the diamonds of all religions and use them in his spiritual path. One can have love towards his nation. Every nation has some physical boundaries. All people living in that nation...

UNITY OF RELIGIONS IN THE UNIVERSE

Posted on: 09/01/2003

Conversation between Swami and a Christian Father:

Father: Those who do not have faith in Jesus Christ will be sent to the flames of liquid fire in hell. This is the declaration of our faith.

Swami: Does that mean that there is no salvation to all the generations of devotees who lived on this earth before the incarnation of Jesus Christ? If so, all those devotees were subjects of the partiality of God since they were...

BENEFIT OF JESUS AND WEEPING PEOPLE TO BE COMPARED AS DEATH BEING COMMON

Posted on: 17/11/2015

Shri Anil asked: What is the significance of death in the spiritual knowledge?

Shri Swami Replied: Death is spiritual and scientific requirement of the individual soul and its external body. Just like the dress on the external body, the body is also an external dress on the individual soul. Everyday, anybody leaves the dress for wash and the body is also subjected to bath. Similarly, death is the washing process of the body and after death the washing process of the individual soul takes place in the hell. The body is composed of...

Why does God allow people gathered for worship to get killed in terrorist attacks?

Posted on: 23/05/2019

Shri Anil asked: Padanamaskaram Swami! In the recent terrorist attacks, many people who had gathered for worship were killed. Some people are questioning why God allows such killings to take place in a place of worship. They are asking if God was sleeping while these people were being killed. Even if the killing were inevitable, God could have easily made it happen in some other place so that this blame would not come on God. At Your Divine Feet, Anil.

Swami replied: The time and place of punishment is decided by God Himself. God Himself is punishing the sinners by killing them. Krishna Himself killed several sinners and He also got several sinners killed. Prophet Mohammad also killed several sinners, who were creating violence by propagating the multiplicity of God. Of course, sometimes, even God gets killed by sinners! Jesus, Shankara, Daynanda Sarasvati etc., were Human Incarnations of God, who were killed in this manner. All these incidents have their own hidden backgrounds...

Why does Islam say that Allah is not the Father and that Jesus is not His son?

Posted on: 04/01/2021

Śrī Anil asked: A Muslim devotee said that Allāh is not Jesus and that Jesus is not God’s son. He gives the following explanation as reasoning: We all know that Jesus had a beginning. He ate food and slept like we do. He even prayed to Allāh. There is no doubt that these are created attributes. The Creator is not like the creation and does not have created attributes. We cannot attribute weakness to God. To say that God...

Swāmi replied: What the Muslim said is correct, but not complete. He has to accept that Mohammad is also not the son of God based on the same reasons given by him in the case of Jesus. He wants to say that both Jesus and Mohammad...

Why did Jesus fast 40 days and forty nights?

Posted on: 23/05/2021

[A question raised in internet discussion forum, sent through Śrī Anil]

Swāmi Replied:- He wants to show to the devotees that fasting improves the alertness of the mind. The food gives energy and this is the merit. But, it gives stoutness of the body resulting in laziness and dullness. Whatever Jesus did was only to show the divine path only and not to show His greatness. Of course, Jesus fasted beyond the limit of human range (40 days)! This is due to His divine power...

MESSAGE ON CHRISTMAS (2006)

Posted on: 25/12/2006

Jesus asked Peter about the opinion of public on Him. Peter told that some are looking Jesus as the Messenger and some are looking Jesus as Son of God. He told that he is looking Jesus as the God Himself. Three views about the human incarnation are always available and these are Dvaita, Vishishtaadvaita and Advaita. According to these three views, Jesus gave the three statements that He is the Messenger, that He is the Son of God and that He is not different from God. This does not mean that He is changing His state from one to the other in these three positions. His three statements about Himself...

Basic Aim of Bible and Quran is Not Nivrutti

Posted on: 07/08/2016

Shri Anil asked: Q3) There are lot of strong verses as mentioned below in Quran, in which Jesus Himself address Him as a mere messenger of God. Quran also vehemently criticise the concept of trinity 'Father-Son of God- Holy Spirit'. Kindly enlighten us. [Allah do not have son “O people of the Scripture, do not go to extremes in your religion, and do not say about God except the truth. The Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, is only a messenger from God and a word from Him (“Be” and it is), which He sent to Mary...

Swami replied: There are two points in this context: 1) The human being is a joint system of the soul with awareness and the inert body, which has awareness due to very close association with the soul. Both the light and the room in which light is present have illumination helping our perception. Jesus was also addressed as the human son (manushya kumara). Hence, it is a perfect truth that Jesus is the son of Mary only and very much deserving for the selection by God to become human incarnation. There are three components basically:..

RELIGION AND RATIONALITY

Posted on: 21/06/2005

[A person claiming to be a true Christian said that he does not believe in human rationality and the introduction of God through the human body]. Let us begin by asking what is meant by denying human rationality? Does it mean:

  • Whatever the human being says, rational (reasonable) or irrational (reasonless), should not be accepted?
  • Or whatever is reasonably said by the human being should not be accepted? [Implying that only that which is irrational and said by a human being should be accepted].

If you take the first case, since you are a human being, whatever you say should not be accepted...
