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...

MESSAGE ON MUHARRAM

Posted on: 22/02/2004

The Greatest Religion: Islam is the greatest religion in this world and I am not making this statement without reason. The reason is that Islam is the only religion, which deals with practical spiritual efforts without any trace of theoretical gossip. This religion shows excellent tolerance towards other religions. Islam says that you should even protect the non-believers of Islam if they pray for protection from you. After protecting them, you can give them the message of Allah and send them...

How according to you is Islam the greatest religion?

Posted on: 25/01/2019

Dr. V Jaganmohan asked: Would you please enlighten us on the following: How is Islam greater than any other religion? By Islam, do you mean the ideology as developed on the teachings of the Koran, Hadis, and Mohammed? Thanking you, Sincerely, DrVJ.

Swami replied: You must be knowing that in Hinduism we do some special rituals called vratams to worship God. Some examples are the Satyanaaraayana Swami Vratam, Varalakshmii Vratam, Nandikeshvara Vratam, Mangala Gauri Vratam and so on. You must have observed that a common verse is read out in each of these rituals. The meaning of the verse is that this ritual is the best of all...

Can devoted Muslims pray to God to excuse bad Muslims?

Posted on: 04/01/2021

Śrī Anil asked: A Muslim says that bad Muslims will get help from pious Muslims on the day of judgment. He states the following: Shafāh is a special help given to the bad Muslims from the pious Muslims on the Day of Judgment. Shafāh happens by the pious asking Allāh to help those bad Muslims by relieving them of their punishment. Allāh answers the prayers of the pious and lessens...

Swami replied: Atheists following ethics also are not punished by God. God’s minimum and maximum expectation is only that all souls should live peacefully...

WORSHIP OF WALL AND STATUE ARE SAME

Posted on: 31/01/2015

Shri Anil asked: “One Muslim devotee says that the worship of Allah is far superior to the worship of statues. Please enlighten”.

Swami Replied: The P.G. Course is far superior to L.K.G. course. This does not mean that you should blame the L.K.G. course and praise the P.G. Course. One day you were also a student of that L.K.G. course. The only point here is that you should not stop at the level of first step (L.K.G.) and you should climb to reach the last step...

Is it wrong for a born-Hindu to pray like a Muslim?

Posted on: 25/01/2019

Shri Hrushikesh asked: Dear Swami, One devotee asked the following question. Your servant, Hrushikesh.

[I was born into a Hindu family. But I have been following Islamic mode of prayer. Everyone says I have left my dharma. Have I done something wrong? My husband says a woman should follow her husband’s dharma and that if she can't, she need not pray at all. All she has to do is serve him and he is her God and that she needs no other prayer. My husband insists that following Islamic mode of prayer is wrong when its not his dharma...

Swami replied: Certainly, you are not wrong and certainly, all others who say that you are wrong, are wrong. There is no trace of doubt in this declaration. You have not changed your religion by following certain modes of prayer belonging to another religion. Any mode of prayer belonging to any religion is correct and good. You are not criticizing...

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 is Islam associated with violence, meat-eating and other defects?

Posted on: 25/01/2019

Shri Anil asked: Padanamaskaram Swami! Suraj Advaita asked the following doubts in a forum and is seeking their clarification from You. Kindly give Your reply. At Your divine feet, Anil. Why is Islam causing problems everywhere? Why is the Quran so negatively written? Why does Islam allow meat-eating, when Sanatana Dharma does not allow it? If meat eating is sin, why are Muslims allowed to eat meat? Is Islam the Devil’s religion? Also, please let me know what things on your channel I should propagate? I have read most of your articles and I have liked them. Where can I find all your articles?

Swami replied: Sin is sin irrespective of the religion a person follows. No divine scripture allows any human being to follow sin. But when a certain sin is inevitable and when no single person can change it among the people belonging to a certain religion or region, the divine scripture neglects for the time being. The scripture, in its preaching, concentrates on the control of other sins at least. Even in Hinduism, non-vegetarian food...

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...

MOHAMMAD DECLARED AS PROPHET TO BE INLINE WITH THE PUBLIC

Posted on: 22/08/2010

Mohammad was also human incarnation of God like Jesus, Buddha and Krishna. The unimaginable God possesses a human being, who is a deserving devotee, selected by God to become a member of His inner most circle. Just like the current enters a metallic wire, the unimaginable God enters an imaginable item of creation, which is always a human being. Here, the current is not transformed into the wire. Current did not become the wire. Current only entered the wire. The wire is the medium for current. Similarly, God is not transformed into human being or God did not become the human being (Avyaktam vyaktimaapannam—Gita). God only entered the human being, which is a medium only as said in the Veda (Tadevanupravishat…) and the Gita...

DOING SPIRITUAL WORK IS CRITERION THAT PLEASES GOD

Posted on: 10/06/2017

Shri Anil asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, A question from a Muslim devotee is enclosed. 1) A muslim devotee, Imran Ahmed, on Qoura commented on the divine knowledge of Shri Datta Swami on re-birth as given below.

[Kindly give Your answer to this. Imran Ahmed. Jai Shri Datta

Your articles are very insightful and whenever I read them, I feel that it contains only truth. Thanks for your beautiful messages. In this article you have mentioned that : “Some people think that cancellation of the rebirth in this world is salvation! This is climax of ignorance.” During my spiritual journey so far, I had a conclusion that the key effort in spiritual path is to attain Moksha/Liberation...]

Swami Replied: Salvation means relief from the worldly tensions for which the worldly bonds are always responsible. One should not try for salvation or detachment without attachment to God. A bond breaks only by another stronger bond. A stronger bond with God can only break the worldly bonds. Hence, salvation from the worldly bonds (worldly tensions) should be a natural consequence of the stronger bond with God. The aim shall be attachment to God...

Jihad to Stop Killing Each Other But Not to Use to Kill Each Other

Posted on: 07/10/2017

Shri Durga Prasad asked: Padanamaskaram Swamiji: 1) About the religious fighting at His time, what did the incarnation Prophet Mohammed said and how to interpret it regarding present Jihad?

Swami Replied: I have already explained this point. The human incarnation was totally negated because before Prophet Mohammed, Jesus claimed Himself as human incarnation and was bitterly crucified in spite of His best preached knowledge and exhibition of genuine miracles. He did not oppose the crucifixion by doing a miracle since such crucifixion...

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:..
