Regarding the piousness of pilgrimages
« on: June 21, 2017, 12:39:19 PM »


False commercial propaganda of certain places

Leave the illusion of place and time in spiritual efforts.



You think that a specific area on this earth is especially pious because a deserving sage has seen Me in that area. I surely tell you that there is no specialty in that area to treat it as very pious place to be visited as pilgrimage. I appeared in that area because the deserving sage was living in that area. You can attach importance to Me and that sage but not to that area. People come to that area in crowds thinking that that area has My special grace. This is the climax of ignorance. Priests have stressed some importance on that area to attract crowds so that they can be benefited by their offerings. It is all false commercial propaganda.

 Of course, the pilgrims coming with faith may be benefited in developing their theoretical devotion to God. But, the priests are lost for their double game before God. You may fool the innocent public, but, can you fool the omniscient God and escape punishment from the same omniscient God? All the false God-men and false human incarnations of today must note this point and avoid fooling public for benefits remembering the omniscient and omnipotent God standing in the background of the whole scene.

An owner awarded a sincere servant in a place. If you also do sincere service, you will be also awarded in the same place or in some other place. Without doing the service, if you stand in the place in which the sincere servant was awarded, will you get the award due to the power of that place? The owner might have awarded the sincere servant on Monday. You think that Monday is a very pious day, which can bring award to you. For your sincere service, God may award you on Monday or on Tuesday. Hence, leave the illusion of place and time in spiritual efforts.

The way to estimate your real love to God

The practical devotion alone is true provided it does not have aspiration for any fruit in return.

You are showing true love on your ignorant issues. But, you are showing false love on omniscient God and say that your love on God is true.

Always estimate your own devotion to Me by imagining that your service and sacrifice to Me are waste due to absence of any fruit in return and then observe the devotion leftover in you. Generally, after this no devotion is seen at all since it evaporates completely. However, if a trace of devotion remains in you that trace is the devotion present in you. This is the quarterly test of Brahma. If a trace of devotion still remains, conduct the next half yearly test of Vishnu by imagining that God has stolen away whatever you had already. That trace must have also disappeared. However, if a trace of that trace still remains in you that is really the real devotion. Then, conduct the third annual test of Rudra by imagining that God is subjecting you to intolerable suffering and now you can see that trace of trace must have also disappeared. However, if a trace of that trace of that trace remains, that is really and really the real devotion. These imaginary steps are useful in estimating your real devotion. If these imaginary steps happen to be the practical steps, it becomes the real practical spiritual effort and Datta will appear before you to embrace you and to merge with you finally. The essence of all this is only that the practical devotion alone is true provided it does not have aspiration for any fruit in return.

Do you say that such real love is impossible? If you say so, it is utter lie. You are having such real love on your own issues (children). Think patiently with careful analysis and then say what I told is true or not. I am not asking you to change your true love from your issues. You are showing true love on your ignorant issues. But, you are showing false love on omniscient God and say that your love on God is true. Either stop telling this lie to God or extend a trance of your true love shown on ignorant issues to the omniscient God also. For God’s sake (this is the issue of God only) stop your trial to fool the omniscient God. This is the fundamental issue in the spiritual knowledge.

The real love has no importance for place, time and procedure. You are not showing your true love on your issues in a specific place, in a specific time and through a specific procedure. Then, why do you worship God in a specific place, in a specific time and through a specific procedure? You are doing so because your love on God is not real. It is artificial only aspiring for some fruit in return. Are you repenting that you have not shown your true love on issues on some day? Then, why do you repent so much if you have not worshipped God on someday? Again the reason is that your love on God is not real. The real love is always beyond all these parameters and should be spontaneous and natural in expression. You must express your real love on God in any place, at any time and in any manner as is done in the case of your issues. If such real love exists, whatever qualities may exist in the devotee, such devotee is dearest to Me since there is truth in his love.

 Saraswati has rajas. Lakshmi has Sattvam. Parvati has tamas. Irrespective of these three qualities all the three are dearest darlings to Me. Always concentrate on achieving reality in devotion and don’t bother about your qualities. You may divert any quality to Me, it becomes sacred. Similarly, any quality diverted towards world becomes unholy. Even a thorny stick submitted to holy fire becomes holy ash. Even sweet sugar poured in drainage becomes unholy and useless.
