My servant has full faith in Me and hence will never ask Me to protect him/her.

You are always uttering “protect me, protect me”. I have not protected any other soul as much I protected you, the human souls. If you recognize the quantity of My love on you, you will become mad and hence I am hiding My love on you. Service to Me makes you to become servant in the beginning stage. In the latter stage, the same service makes Me to become your servant. Can you tell Me if there is any higher stage than this? My servant has full faith in Me and hence will never ask Me to protect him/her. Those, who don’t serve Me only utter such words. I surely tell you that I will not protect you since you have uttered these words.

If you propagate this knowledge to other human beings, who are your brothers and sisters, you will be blessed by God Datta


Both of you have heard all important points of spiritual knowledge. If you propagate this knowledge to other human beings, who are your brothers and sisters, you will be blessed by God Datta. If you analyze sharply, this propagation is neither the work for God nor the work for others. It is the work for your sake only. While speaking these points to others, these get digested by you and penetrate into your general consciousness and sub-consciousness also to purify your souls and reform you completely bringing eligibility for divine salvation. In every propagation, you must stress on two points: 1) Practical devotion alone is true love and 2) In the plane of your internal theoretical devotion, you must not have aspiration for any fruit from God. These two points confirm that your devotion is true.

You must preach about the highest place of God, which is higher than even justice. Anasuya and Sumati (mother of Shripadavallabha) got Me as their son since they voted for God against even justice. A true devotee treats Me greater than even social service and welfare of the world. Rama tested Hanuman in this point. Rama is expected to kill Ravana, who is disturbing the world and He was expected to do service to society and bring welfare for the world. But, on first day of the war, Rama told Ravana that He will go back if Sita is returned. It means that Rama is not bothered about the welfare of the society and is bothered only about His selfish family life! Hanuman should have left Rama, if He joined Rama for the welfare of society. Hanuman did not leave Rama because the creator of world is mostly concerned regarding the welfare of His creation. Hanuman understood that Rama spoke in that way only to test Him. The tests of Datta are always very subtle and very severe since the ultimate truth is brought out.

One day, Krishna got severe headache. Krishna told sage Narada that His headache has only one medicine, which is the feet-dust of a true devotee. When Narada asked for the feet dust, the wives of Krishna told “how can we give our feet dust to God? If we give, we will go to horrible hell”. When Narada approached Gopikas, they gave their feet-dust immediately. Narada said that they will go to hell for doing so. Gopikas told that they are prepared to go to hell if Krishna is relived from headache. This is the real devotion of Gopikas to Krishna!

Only one selected devotee recognizes Me and surrenders to Me
   


I appear in drunken state and associated with a prostitute. I repel majority of devotees in this way. Only one selected devotee recognizes Me and surrenders to Me. I preach the inner meaning of My vision in such state:- A fellow attracted to wine does not leave it even though it spoils health, wealth and social prestige. The prostitute is also exactly similar to wine. From this, you must also learn that a devotee attracted to God is unable to leave God even though God gives several losses and difficulties. I am preaching this important spiritual concept through such vision. Devotees do not take this message and leave Me after scolding Me. I am always in the state of preacher of spiritual knowledge (Sat Guru) only to humanity.

If you are involved in spiritual line, God will extend your lifetime to help you

Realize the value of time

Past will not come again

 Future is not certain, Only present is yours.


Realize the value of time, which is very little available for you. The ignorance does not allow you to note the value of time. Past will not come again. Future is not certain. Only present is yours. The deity of death is always following you and you are not sure of any minute in which the death is going to swallow you. This point will provoke you to concentrate on spiritual line as early as possible due to uncertainty of lifetime. If you are involved in spiritual line, God will extend your lifetime to help you. If you are living like an animal in the worldly life only without any hope of spiritual side, your lifetime is cancelled by God to throw you into births of animals.

 Eating, drinking, sleeping and sex are the common factors for an animal and a worldly person. If you are confined to these four activities only, you are already an animal in human form. In such case, this human form is unnecessary and you are given the form of animal since you are living like it only. One may argue that some people living like animals are seen having long life. Such exceptions are seen because you have not seen all the background of such people. They might be helping God’s program through some physical service or some practical sacrifice, which is not noted by you. You should not generalize your limited knowledge and misunderstand the concept.

Devotees living in Me get full protection here as well as there

Durga means the palace surrounded by big compound-wall with closed gates. People living in such palace have full protection. Similarly, devotees living in Me get full protection here as well as there. The protection is given for the real love of devotee. Today is the day on which I destroyed all the evil forces of devils and demons. I suppressed king Bali with My foot since he prayed Me to keep My foot on his head. King Bali represents ego. If you surrender to My feet, I will suppress it down forever so that it will not come up again. A demon called Somaka stole the Veda and got immersed in ocean. I became the fish to kill him. Somaka means wine, which is worldly attraction that steals your spiritual knowledge and you are immersed in the worldly ocean. Fish is in the form of eye, which is the third eye or eye of knowledge (Jnaana Netra) and its power is analysis that kills the ignorance-demon. I became tortoise to uplift the mountain in the sea. This is My support to you in this worldly sea. Like this, you have to take the internal meaning of every story, which alone helps you in your spiritual effort.

Have faith in Me that I will give you whatever is required for you


Eating excess food and earning excess money will certainly spoil you. Have faith in Me that I will give you whatever is required for you. A devotee having faith in Me eats little and earns little since he knows that I will give him always the required food and required money like ATM card. If you draw lot of money from Bank, it may be stolen and you will suffer for long time. If you have no money, suffering is little. Such devotee having faith in Me that I will attend him whenever necessary, lives without diseases and without mental tensions.

Your worship shall be for My pleasure and should not be for your pleasure by achieving some fruit. My pleasure shall be your pleasure.

Hinduism / The style of life is not different from spiritual effort
« on: June 21, 2017, 12:40:45 PM »
The style of life is not different from spiritual effort

The qualities attained in the life style get reflected in the spiritual effort



The style of life is not different from spiritual effort. The qualities attained in the life style get reflected in the spiritual effort. The life style is rehearsal of dance. Spiritual effort is the actual performance of dance. If you have ego and jealousy towards co-human beings in your worldly life, those both reflect in your spiritual life also and you will miss contemporary human incarnation. If you are greedy in the worldly life, same reflects in spiritual life also and you will worship God theoretically only and not practically. When some friend helped by you harms you in return, you are losing patience in the worldly life. Same attitude is reflected in spiritual life, when God harms you in return for your practical devotion to test you. Your Pravrutti reflects in toto in your Nivrutti. Hence, love your enemies also in the worldly life. This will help you in your spiritual life when God acts as your enemy in testing you. Such patience must be developed by you in the worldly life.

If you do not hate any human being, you will not miss the contemporary human incarnation. The process of learning a subject needs training for one year. But, the examination in that is done in one hour only in the end of the year. Your long worldly life is your long training period and your spiritual test takes very short time only. If you understand this point, all your worldly life becomes related to your spiritual effort. Spiritual effort is nothing but the test conducted by Datta. Training to succeed in the spiritual test is your long worldly life. If your concentration is on the test and on its result only, you fail in the test. Let your concentration be on the training only by which you will certainly pass the test. Without understanding this main point, what is the use of all these worships?

Today is the day of moon-eclipse. You are not understanding this main point because your minds are also eclipsed by ignorance. Always be careful about Pravrutti or worldly life since it will exactly reflect as the background of your Nivrutti. If you are greedy in Pravrutti, you will always stress on theoretical devotion saying that God, the giver, doesn’t need any sacrifice from anybody. By this you will avoid practical sacrifice done in the temples also. For this, you will accept that God is not in inert models to receive our sacrifice! If it is said that human incarnation receives your sacrifice, you will eradicate the concept basically asking how the unimaginable God can become the imaginable human being! Hence, all your philosophy is not based on real logic and scripture, but, it is based on your hidden background that got transferred from your Pravrutti! If your background is ego and jealousy and not greediness, you will sacrifice to idols in temples, but, never sacrifice to human incarnation based on the above said eradication.

If your background is full attachment to family, you will shout against sacrifice to God that leads to detachment from family! Hence, God always comes down for cleaning the Pravrutti only by which Nivrutti is also indirectly cleaned. The Gita says that God comes down to establish justice in Pravrutti (Dharma samsthaapanaarthaaya), but doesn’t say that His arrival is to establish spiritual knowledge or devotion.

The creator, ruler and destroyer of this world is only one unimaginable God. He gets mediated by energy or matter for the sake of devotees to see, to talk, to touch and to live along with Him. The names and forms of the media may be different, but, the unimaginable God pervading all these media is only one and one only. The oneness and universality of God can be realized by any devotee in the state of ripened spiritual knowledge. None and nothing is equal to God and not to speak of more than God (na tat samah… Veda). Identifying contemporary human incarnation takes place only in the final stage of spiritual effort. Practical devotion without aspiration for any fruit in return is the only spiritual path. Throughout the Gita, Krishna used first person indicating Himself as Krishna or contemporary human incarnation only. He didn’t use third person, God. “My devotee (mat bhaktah)” means Krishna Himself in first person. He didn’t use “Devotee of God (Daiva bhaktah) in third person. He stressed on the concept of contemporary human incarnation since He told the Gita while He is alive.

Datta Jayanti- pious day on which the unimaginable God is given to humanity in human form

Even if the pleasures approach you for enjoyment, if you sacrifice those pleasures, the poison of dog or Maya gets pacified

Sacrifice of pleasures is divinity and enjoyment of pleasures is death


Today is the festival of “Datta Jayanti”, which means that this is the pious day on which the unimaginable God is given to humanity in human form. Today, the tradition is to bite the bread and throw it to a dog. By this, it is said that the poison in the teeth of dog gets pacified. What is the meaning of this? Even if the pleasures approach you for enjoyment (bread approached your mouth for eating), if you sacrifice those pleasures, the poison of dog or Maya gets pacified. If the dog with poisonous teeth bites you, you will become mad. Similarly, when Maya bites you, you become mad. This tradition preaches you that sacrifice of pleasures is divinity and enjoyment of pleasures is death. You are involved in the worldly affairs like a mad man not knowing that he is mad. This is the message of Datta Jayanti.

(Swami sang the following song composed by Him on the spot.)


O soul! Abode of God is far still,
More and more far still, O Soul! (Chorus)

Kill your eyes, Kill your ears today,
Kill your tongue, these are enemies,
These senses attracted by the world
Disturb your mind fixed on Datta.

Your goal is to reach My abode,
But, your effort is quite opposite,
You want to lit fire on the sticks
But, you drench these with water!

Whatever you hear, whatever you see,
Whatever you speak, it is your blood,
If your blood is flowing towards Me,
I become yours, think well, think well.

Don’t bend to traditions, be firm always,
Follow the true path after analysis only,
Always see Me only, always hear Me only,
Always speak about Me only in the world.

Those are mad people, who call you as mad,
The scene in this world gets reversed there,
These mad people will cry and cry in hell,
Who is mad? It is decided in proper time.

Control your senses, do sharp analysis,
Let your intelligence be active always,
Your love to Me proved in your practice,
Without desire for any fruit is the path.

Salvation means detachment from world,
It is a consequence of attachment to Me,
Don’t try for detachment, always try
To attach yourself to Me everywhere.

Even if you control your mind, the senses drag the mind towards worldly items. The senses are like bottles of wine that drag your mind. If you are controlled by your senses, it is impossible to reach Me. In spite of this, if you think that you can reach Me, it is only deceiving yourself. Don’t postpone spiritual effort for tomorrow. There is no tomorrow. Only today is the truth. Yesterday will not come back. Today, now itself, get yourself attached to Me.

The Veda says (Striyah satih…) that God is male (Purusha) and all the souls are females (Prakruti or Shakti)

Shiva and Shakti represent God and devotee

Every soul is Prakruti or Shakti


(Shri C B K Murthy asked the meaning of “Ahamityeva vibhaavaye bhavaanim”)

Swami replied: The meaning of the line recited by you is that you should think that you are Goddess Parvati, who is Shakti. Every soul is called as Prakruti or Shakti. Shiva and Shakti represent God and devotee. This should not be taken in the sense of gender. The Veda says (Striyah satih…) that God is male (Purusha) and all the souls are females (Prakruti or Shakti). God is the husband of all souls. Husband (Bhartaa) really means maintainer and wife (Bhaaryaa) really means maintained. In this real sense God is husband and soul is wife and this is the exact meaning of the Veda. Hence, the ego of gender in the souls is meaningless in the spiritual field.






If you recognize the contemporary human incarnation, there is no need for you to go to any temple

If you recognize the contemporary human incarnation, there is no need for you to go to any temple. Any temple contains an inert representative model of the unimaginable God mediated either in energetic body or mediated in human body in the past time. The contemporary human incarnation means the unimaginable God mediated in alive human body. Spiritual aspirants in LKG class only go to temples. Spiritual aspirants in PG class approach contemporary human incarnation. The difference between these two types of spiritual aspirants is the gap between sky and earth.

Today, your house is better than the pilgrim-place

The real pious place is that, which has perfect peace and pleasant nature congenial for concentration provided such place is not visited for fulfillment of any desire

Today in these pilgrim-places desires, businesses and hypocrisy pervaded everywhere

In olden days the places of pilgrim existed on hills and in forests so that many people don’t visit. Such places were congenial with peace and good nature for developing the theoretical devotion. These foolish priests spoiled everything by saying that if one visits such place, their desired fruits are granted. This resulted in crowds visiting these places, spoiling peace and nature. The priests did like this for their personal earnings! The aim of development of theoretical devotion is totally lost. You can develop your devotion in your worship-room present in your house occupied by a few people only. Today, your house is better than the pilgrim-place.

A newly invented lonely place is better than your house. Sages preferred forests for this spiritual aim only. Thank God! The priests then did not say that those forests are pious to fulfill the desires of the public! Had they told so, the forests might have disappeared with full crowds of people! The real pious place is that, which has perfect peace and pleasant nature congenial for concentration provided such place is not visited for fulfillment of any desire. Today in these pilgrim-places desires, businesses and hypocrisy pervaded everywhere. Even a real devotee (Yogi) will not be there, can you expect God (Yogishwara) to be there? Once upon a time these places were really pious and these are not pious today. You may think that at least some good old scent must have remained in these places. Such trace of scent disappeared long back due to the accumulated bad scent of crowds.

Hinduism / 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.

Islam / Background of Quran shall be properly understood
« on: May 11, 2017, 11:51:43 AM »
Background of Quran shall be properly understood

Introduction: The human incarnation of unimaginable God or Father of heaven (called Allah), Prophet Mohammad gave comments on the situations of events existed in some old span of time. These comments exactly suit and were valid to that context of time and to that limited region of the world in which the pious Prophet appeared. If the same situations occur anywhere exactly, same comments can be applied at any time in the same region or in other regions of the world. If approximately similar situations occur, the essence of the comments of Prophet made can be applied to other events also provided there are some similarities at least. I will illustrate this with the following example.

Ex.: Some time back in My native place a case appeared before Me for judgement. There were two brothers. The younger brother earned a house by his own efforts while he was unmarried and not knowing the responsibilities of family. The elder brother had already his family. The clever elder brother influenced the mind of the innocent younger brother and got registered the younger brother’s house in his name. Later on, the younger brother also got married and had family. The younger brother requested the elder brother to give him at least half of the house for him and his family to live. The elder brother refused stating that the house was earned by him and was registered in his name. Both were devotees of this Datta Swami, whom they consider as human incarnation of God. This Datta Swami passed the Judgement: The elder brother must give the total house to the younger brother and can stay in that house as long as the younger brother allows.

The above Judgement should be restricted to that specific case only occurred in the past time and cannot be generalised to apply to all contexts and all times. Suppose in some other time and some other in place, a father gave two houses to his two sons. You cannot apply the above statement to this context also blindly and say that Datta Swami’s judgement is ultimate anywhere and anytime and the elder brother always should give his house to his younger brother. The background of this context was totally different from the background of the above context.

Similarly, in the time of the divine Prophet Mohammad, the atmosphere of a specific region was horrible in which several religions appeared with several Gods and all were fighting with each other. The fight brought climax of Chaos and people were killing each other based on the religious differences. Then, Allah appeared in human form called Prophet Mohammad. He established a religion which is the actual Islam proposing only one God called Allah. If this religion gets established, the quarrels will stop and killing each other will end. There was a vigorous necessity to establish Islam even by force to stop mutual fights. Naturally, those ignorant and blind religions opposed the Prophet. This means that their religions should continue and the killing also should continue without end. To bring them to the concept of one God and to avoid the mutual fights and mutual killing, the Prophet went to the last resort of even killing those leaders and rigid followers of various religions so that eternal peace will be established for future generations. Hence, orders like ‘fight non-Muslims’, ‘cutting off the hands and feet of those against Allah and His messenger’ etc., were passed in that context and in that specific region in which such worst situation existed. These comments of the Prophet were confined to that time and to that region only where people were fighting and killing with each other based on different religions. In normal situations same Prophet Mohammad advised the followers to protect anybody in problem and to become the escort up to his/her house. Then, preaching about Allah should be done and to leave him/her without any force. Here, in this context, the world Allah means one God only and not several Gods since He established His religion in the context of rejecting many Gods only. Similarly, Lord Krishna, a human incarnation conducted a mighty war to destroy the injustice completely in a specific region and in a specific old span of time. This does not mean that whenever injustice grows, a mighty war is always inevitable. In a specific region and in some span of specific old time, a divine human incarnation preached the required spiritual knowledge to that place and that context of time and underwent crucifixion silently so that the hearts of those people get reformed by repentance. This does not mean that any spiritual preacher of any time in any area should undergo crucifixion silently to reform the hearts of the people. Today, crucifixion is never allowed on the grounds of spiritual knowledge and even on the grounds of political issues.

Today, in all regions of the world all religions co-exist with mutual love and respect to each other. Even if there are differences in religions, situation is limited to some hot discussions and debates or at the maximum abusing each other very rarely. You can’t bring those comments of the divine Prophet confined to that context and that place to the present context and present world. You should not implement those punishments on non-Islamic religions because that situation was very serious and this situation is very normal.

The divine Prophet Mohammad means ONE GOD as the meaning of the world Allah because the entire lifelong context in which He was placed was horrible fights based on religious differences establishing different Gods. The punishments suggested by Him were in the context of forcible suppression of multiplicity of God by even wars to stop mutual killing based on wrong spiritual knowledge. Today also, many religions and many Gods based on wrong spiritual knowledge exist, but, the situation is not as worse as that of that time. In that context, wars and severe punishments were inevitable and in this context of today, propagation of right spiritual knowledge is sufficient. You should not extend the statement of one context blindly to other different context of the same event also. Today, the solution can come by cutting the wrong arguments with the help of right arguments and hands and feet need not be cut with knives. The whole problem arises by blindly bringing the comments of God made in one context to another different context due to ignorance without little common sense and a trace of analysis!

Similarly, issues of inheriting the property, control of women, concepts of marriage, the status of adopted sons etc., present in that context and in that region were analysed with justified logic and judgements were passed by the divine Prophet Mohammad. Everywhere, every time, we must not miss the basic point that these judgements were specific to those situations only. If the situation is exactly same, anytime, anywhere, you can simply extend and apply the same judgement word to word. But, if situations were different, the same judgement of past different situations should not be applied to the new situations without suitable modifications.

How to transform a terrorist

Even a terrorist has some logic by which only he is practically behaving in that particular way. By your sharp analysis, you have to change that logic and then only reformation and realization comes even in terrorist. You must enlighten the misinterpretation of the scripture like Jihad, which is the fight for justice in the context of killing each other due to difference in the religions existing in the time of Prophet Mohammad. The situation of killing each other can be controlled by fight and sometimes in extreme conditions by removing some limbs like hands, legs etc. Killing can be stopped by fights or such severe punishments. Today when such context of killing is not there, you cannot bring the concept of Jihad to the context of today.

Today, only oral arguments and oral fights are going on between religions. In this context, only perfect rational analysis is sufficient to rectify the situation. Like this, we must understand the word of the Prophet with reference to the then existing context. You should not generalize a specific context to all the times and all the regions. Then only harmony between religions and world peace is possible. You must also remember that the Prophet told to teach about Allah to a human being after helping it and the final decision is left to the free will of the human being.

Clarification on the some of the controversial verses in Quran
A woman inherits half of what a man inherits: Qur'an 4:11
A woman's witness testimony is half of that of a man's: Qur'an 2:282

Women(Qur'an 4:11, 2:282, Qur'an 4:34): In that old context, women were terribly suppressed in all aspects by the ignorant men. This situation existed in every religion and in every region of the world. When you suppressed by somebody, he/she will react and revenge in silent or open ways. Women couldn’t revolt in open ways due their weaker physical strength compared to men. Showing difference by caste and gender is the climax of ignorance and stupidity. Naturally, women revolted in silent ways by becoming more alert and intelligent than men. Women became experts in cold war. They were trying to retort injustice through curved ways called cheating. Men blamed women as cunning liars. This was true in that situation but such retort was not unjust since diamond should be cut by diamond only. You cannot blame those women in view of their unjust suppression. Hence, the witness of two women was felt necessary for the truth to come out because of the non-unity of women in those days. Wife being left half of the husband, witness of one man was said to equal to the witness of two women. Suppression of women from education and property made them to become weaker sex. The divine Prophet gave equal right of property to the women because wealth or money is the basic strength of the entire world. Even in Hinduism the Veda said (Putrebhyo daayam...) that issues (Putra) should divide the property equally. As per Sanskrit grammar (Ekashesha sutra) the word ‘putra’ means both son and daughter. But, the word putra was misinterpreted by men to have the only meaning ‘son’. Selfish souls always pollute the scripture and analysis is the filter to be used for cleaning.

Discipline of the family is essential and one head of the family should exist, be father or be mother. In the old context father (man) remained as head and the entire family including mother (woman) was obeying the head. In the case of disobedience, the family looses unity and discipline. In such case beating was recommended just to induce fear and control. In this way, if understood properly, this gives justified colour. If misinterpreted in wrong way, it shows atrocity against women. This topic should be carefully and patiently understood and everywhere misinterpretation drags you to side. Today, there are several families in which the woman is the only earning member and happens to be the head of the family. In such case if the husband or children become disobedient, she, as the head of the family can beat her husband or children. Headship is important and not gender. In the old context, the head was always male, it is said that a disobedient wife should be controlled even by beating. Here, head controlling others is real focus and man controlling women is misinterpreted false focus. If the discipline comes by punishment, the anger should no more continue and no injustice should be done to anyone in anyway keeping past in mind (‘do not seek a way against them...’).
A man may marry the wife of his adopted son: Qur'an 33:4

Adopted son(: This son is not given by God. This type of son is got by the man only. There is no blood relationship between father and adopted son. The widow wife of such adopted son can be married by the father provided both are willing. This applies to a case of mutual willingness and not force to be applied in every case. Extension of it to all cases is again misinterpretation of selfish people.
Turned into Apes: Qur'an 2:65

Apes: Those who oppose the word of God, become undisciplined criminals to be treated as animals and not at all human beings. Animals have no ethics at all. In the animals also apes are very much unstable in psychology. Hence, such unstable criminals doing various types of sins without ethics are best addressed as apes.
A man can have sex with prisoners of war: Qur'an 33:50

Prisoners: The widows of prisoners are to be supported by providing peaceful family life. Here, wedding means maintenance. Husband means he, who maintains a woman (Bibharti iti bhartaa) and wife means she, who is maintained by the husband (Bhriyate iti bhaaryaa). The wedding with Prophet or human incarnation means that such unfortunate widow shall be maintained and supported by God. The word wedding should be taken as in the sense of supporting the widow and her children. If the widow and the supporter (man) are mutually willing, both can get further children through the sex. This applies to specific cases only to avoid the secret sexual dealings of a widow with many men and marriage with a man is better than that bringing deceases. Rules of ethics differ from case to case and no single rule exists that should be applied to all the cases in all the contexts.
A man can marry a girl who hasn't reached puberty: Qur'an 65:4

Marriage before puberty: This existed in Hinduism also in a specific span of time and not necessary for all the times. The Manusmuruti says that a girl should be married in her 8th year (Astavarshaa bhavet...). The Veda says that the girl should be married after 16th year (Maa me dabhraani...). This difference is based on the different contexts. A time was there when the girls were forcibly taken away for marriage. But, if the girl was married, she was leftover. To this context the first scripture applies. The normal context of all times was that such danger of looting unmarried girls was absent, which is even in the present time and to this context the second scripture applies. In such normal span of time, a grown up girl has grown up mentally also to select her husband. This process called svayamvaram existed in which a grown up girl interviews various grooms directly and makes her own selection with full freedom. Hence, such rules are specific for specific contexts only and this is very very important point.
A man may marry four wives: Qur'an 4:3

Four wives: This rule again applies to a specific context of time and region in which a man was marrying many many girls based on his power of money and rowdy nature. Such infinite number is reduced to four and here one is also suggested. Hence, from case to case the number varies from one to four. A soul can’t do justice to more than four based on the condition of health in that time.
"Cut off their hands": Qur'an 5:38 & Qur'an 5:33

Cutting hands of thieves: This again differs from context to context. When the sin of stealing reached climax and not controlled by any punishment, the last resort of the punishment was this. This can’t be applied to another context where the sin is under control.
Sura 5:33 orders the cutting off of the hands and feet of those who wage war against Allah and his Messenger.

Cutting hands and feet of opponents of Prophet: Jesus was the Prophet before Mohammad as agreed by Islam also. His hands and feet were cruelly nailed. Such criminals opposing God should be given this punishment. Jesus indicated that He and His father are one and the same (Monism). The anger for crucifixion came at this point. Jesus told the absolute truth as said by Shankara. The ego and jealousy of other co-human beings reached climax and Jesus was brutally killed. To avoid this horrible crime from which no involved soul can ever be excused by God, Prophet Mohammad established dualism (God and soul are totally different) and separated Allah from His messenger. Though He was human incarnation of Allah, to avoid such anger of God on souls, He rejected monism based on the context. In fact, both theories are correct and one and the same. When current flows through wire, current (God) is inseparable from the wire (messenger) and the electrified wire shows the property of electricity (shocking) whenever and wherever touched. For all practical purposes though both are different, remain as one and the same. The electrified wire is called as electricity itself. Prophet Mohammad criticized Jews and Christians in old context only and not in all contexts of all times. The reason for such criticism was only in the context of crucifixion of Jesus, since He was crucified on twisted background of political offence of anti Government, though the hidden real reason was the disliked spiritual knowledge of Jesus. He was aiming at the religious leaders and their followers only, who plotted the crucifixion in most cunning way and hence friendship with such people should not be done. The latter generations should repent to do such act again and this was the main aim of criticising their latter generations after a long time and this criticism subsequently applies to all.

Killing animals for food is not at all sanctioned by Allah

A muslim devotee argues with following statements from Hadit and Quran that eating non-veg is allowed in Islam:

[The Prophet (SAWS) said (Sayings and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad Nawawi's 40 Hadith 17):
 "Verily Allah has prescribed excellent in all things. So if you kill then kill well; and if you slaughter, then slaughter well. Let each one of you sharpen his blade and let him spare suffering to the animal he slaughters.”
 Allah says in the Qur'an (The Noble Qur'an 22:36-37):
 And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah ; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when prepared; and when they are settled, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful.
 Their meat will not reach Allah , nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.
Kindly enlighten on the genuineness and correctness of above verses.
 Also animal sacrifices practiced in Hinduism is correct?]

Shri Swami replied: If you are emotional with very strong settled mind to eat non-vegetarian food by killing animals, you will always search for a supporting scripture only. For you only your favourable interpretation stands authentic. However, if you are searching for truth with open mind, you must go through My following comments without initial prejudice and bias.

There are two ways of examination: 1) Any concept should be analyzed with powerful logical analysis only and the concept should pass through this fire test. If it passes through this test, certainly it is the statement of God because God is never illogical. God is the creator of all the living beings. He loves all the living beings as His children. If one child kills the other child, the father will suffer with highest pain than even the child killed. The simple logic is that you should just think about the probable pain that you suffer, keeping yourself in the place of that animal being killed. No more logic is needed than this perfect experience. Experience is said to be the highest authority. You should not take every statement of the scripture as authentic since in every scripture there are insertions from exploiters. You have to filter such insertions by pushing the entire scripture into the fire of logical analysis. Then only, you can find which is told by God and which is told by a clever human being inserting wrong concepts in to scriptures to support its sins.

2) Assuming that the statement was said by God, you have to carefully analyze it so that the interpretation of the scripture taken by you is verified to be correct or not. If the interpretation opposes the logical analysis, you must try to search the possibility of a second interpretation of the same text, which is quite logical and is easily available in the text if the statement is really stated by God. Let us examine these statements carefully: God (Allah) has created precious (excellent) in every living being (thing). The excellent is precious life that is common in every living being. God is not telling “kill the living being”. He is only telling “if you kill, then kill well”. What does this mean? God is not willing to kill the living being. However, if you are rigid to kill it, at least you take the name of God and kill it so that one day or other the fear for God may control you from this sin. God is also saying that you should sharpen your blade so that the suffering of the animal being killed is spared. This again means that God is feeling pained about the suffering of the slaughtered animal. God is also telling to distribute the meat to needy and beggars. This charity is again suggested to reduce the seriousness of sin. If the killing is already a good deed, there is no sin and there is no need of any charity to pacify the sin at least to some extent. God is also telling that He will receive the piety (pity to be shown on the slaughtered animal as per the religious convention indicated by Allah) from you. The word piety is used since you are doing a cruel act of killing the living being just for food even though you have plenty of alternative vegetarian food.

If you have open mind, My interpretation will touch your heart. But, if you have closed mind and is very fond of eating meat, you will not agree with My interpretation that opposes this slaughter of animals. You will rigidly take your own interpretation because you can’t avoid meat and you badly need the support of the scripture for the slaughter so that you will not feel guilty of consciousness due to satisfaction arrived that the slaughter is acceptable to God. But, such satisfaction is artificial only and somewhere, sometimes, prick in the consciousness of every non-vegetarian is inevitable because self-analysis is the highest authority.

All this applies to the sacrifices in Hinduism also. The Veda, the scripture of Hinduism clearly says (Manyuh pashuh) that the animal to be killed in sacrifice is not the actual animal, but, your animal nature like ignorance, rigidity and stupidity. The goat represents innocence of ignorance. Killing of goat means killing of your ignorant innocence. If you are innocent, all the exploiters of the scripture will take undue advantage to make you a scapegoat in any activity. Killing of innocent goat means that you should be always active and alert so that no exploiter of the scripture can fool you in the name of the original scripture by forcing you commit the sin so that his sin gets support of majority. In spiritual path, majority is not appreciated as in the case of politics.

Islam / Negation Idol worship in Quran
« on: May 11, 2017, 11:50:12 AM »

Negation Idol worship in Quran


Swami replied: Worship of God represented by idol in the shape of a human form and worship of God in actual human form directly (as in the case of Jesus) are inter-linked with each other. Through worship of idol in the shape of human form, you are proceeding to worship God in human form in the advanced stage. The idol worship is a training before the actual worship of human form of God. Both these stages were seriously condemned by Prophet Mohammad because the advanced stage became very serious due to crucifixion of Jesus. The application of training is the employment. Training (idol worship) and employment (worship of God in human form) are abandoned to avoid such cruel crucifixions of divine personalities. Training is learning the shooting with the help of inert targets. Afterwards, employment is participation in the war to shoot alive enemies.

A mother objects her son from both training and subsequent employment since she heard that some person was killed by the alive enemies in the war. Allowing training (idol worship) as first stage leads to allowing the subsequent employment (worship of human incarnation). The kind mother loving her son very much does not allow her son even to participate in the training since the subsequent employment may kill her son in course of time. The Prophet decided to avoid the cruel crucifixions of human incarnations even though He Himself is the human incarnation of God. He reduced the human incarnation to the stage of a Messenger. If somebody writes a letter to you scolding you, you cannot punish the messenger (postman) for that letter. Hence, messenger will never be crucified. Even the energetic incarnation of God called as Father of Heaven (Divine Father) is negated because such form also is in the shape of human form only since Jesus told that He will sit on the lap of the divine Father. However, mere lump of energy (not having human form) was allowed by the Prophet as the medium of God for visualization. This is the ultimate aim of the Prophet to negate human form for the unimaginable God and He thought that it is better to negate even any form. Once the form is allowed, the best form (human form) will come into picture resulting in the human incarnation, which may be attacked by crucifixion by ignorant devotees. In this angle, you have to understand the concepts of the Prophet or Messenger of Islam. Avoiding practical effect (like crucifixion) is very important than establishing a theoretical concept even if it is truth. Truth is not climax of justice. Non-violence (ahimsa) is the climax of justice. To avoid killing of a good divine personality, you can suppress even a true theoretical concept in view of the stage of psychology of the followers in a specific region and in a specific period of time. The preacher should be practical also and should not be a mere theorist.


If you go back to the time of Jesus, the idol worship was discarded and not the worship of human form of God (Himself). The stage of His followers was different. The followers were involved in the idol worship (training) only and not entering the worship of human form of God (employment). In this time and in this region, the practical necessity is to divert the devotees of idols to the devotion of final human incarnation. A person is sitting in the training only throughout his life wasting a large number of bullets in shooting the inert targets only without entering the actual war. He never enters the war to use the bullets to kill the alive enemies. For such followers, Jesus objected the training and stressed on the employment, which is the participation in the war (serving the human incarnation). The real Christianity objects only the idol worship and not the worship of human incarnation since Jesus, the human incarnation declared that He is the truth and light. Jesus also told that He is the path, which means that one can worship the Father of Heaven (energetic incarnation of God that dissolved in Jesus) through Him. By worshiping Jesus, you are worshiping the invisible-imaginable Father of Heaven since Father (energetic form) merged with Son (materialized imaginable and visible form). By worshiping human form, you are worshiping the invisible-unimaginable God also, who merged with the Divine Father. The unimaginable-invisible God can’t be even thought and hence, can never be worshiped directly. The Father of Heaven is imaginable but invisible energetic form and also can’t be worshiped directly since He is invisible to all the ordinary human beings. Hence, by serving Jesus, you are serving the Divine Father in Jesus and also the unimaginable God present in the Father of Heaven. Hence, Jesus told that He is the path to worship both unimaginable-invisible God and imaginable-invisible Father of Heaven.

Christianity is like the mother advising her son to finish the training quickly and enter the actual war to kill the alive enemies. Islam is like the mother, who is very much shocked on hearing the death of her son in the war and not allowing her son to participate either in the training or in the subsequent war.

If you come to Hinduism, it is like the mother advising her son to spend any amount of time in the training period so that shooting the target is perfectly learnt before participating in the war. Somebody may learn the shooting in very less time and some other person may learn the shooting after a long time only. Hence, you cannot stipulate uniform period of time for training to all persons. This is the philosophy of Hinduism-mother. Once the shooting was learnt perfectly, the Christianity-mother appears saying that one should not waste bullets in shooting the inert targets for any more time and that the person should participate in the war immediately. Continuity of the person in the training (idol worship) is condemned by the Christianity-mother. Unfortunately, the person who participated in the war was caught by enemies and was crucified! Now, the Islam-mother appears saying that both training and participation in the war should be avoided in view of the cruel killing of her son. If you understand the sequence of practical effects, the modification of theoretical concepts by these three religions can be perfectly understood. If you are limiting yourself as an observer of a specific period of time only in this sequence, you will become a conservative Hindu or a conservative Christian or a conservative Muslim. If you become the observer of the total sequence of different periods and the necessity of modification of theoretical truths to avoid dangerous practical effects in the corresponding times of human incarnations, you will join the universal spirituality finding the uniform theoretical truth, which was sometimes exposed and sometimes hidden to suit the different psychologies of different times.

Islam / Meaning of partnership with Allah
« on: May 11, 2017, 11:49:41 AM »

Kindly enlighten us regarding the use of the word ‘partnership’ with Allah used in the following Quranic verses:
[Say: "O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah." If then they turn back, say ye: "Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah.s Will). (Surah Al-Imran, 64)
Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good- to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess: For Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious;- (Surah An-Nisa’, 36)
Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed. (Surah An-Nisa’, 48)
"How should I fear (the beings) ye associate with Allah, when ye fear not to give partners to Allah without any warrant having been given to you? Which of (us) two parties hath more right to security? (tell me) if ye know. (Surah Al-An‘am, 81)
This is the Guidance of Allah: He gives that guidance to whom He pleases, of His worshippers. If they were to join other gods with Him, all that they did would be vain for them. [6: Anam-88]
Follow what you are taught by inspiration from your Lord: there is no god but He: and turn aside from those who join gods with Allah. [6: Anam-106]]

Swami replied: If the human incarnation claims that It is God (monism of Shankara), it is objected by the persons crucifying Jesus. Suppose Jesus says that He is minor partner (special monism of Ramanuja) of God, then also, Jesus will be punished because the message coming from one partner involves the contribution of the second partner also. Both partners discuss and arrive at final conclusion. By this, the second partner is having contribution in the message and hence, becomes punishable as per the view of those cruel devotees. The Prophet wants to avoid the cruel punishment given by ignorant devotees in both ways (monism and special monism). The third possibility leftover is that Jesus (Son of Mary) remains as a separate human being becoming the servant of God to carry on the message like a postman (dualism of Madhva). This third possibility is emphasized by the Prophet in order to avoid the brutal reaction of ignorant devotees on divine personalities forever in the future.

Islam / Surah Sad 38-5
« on: May 11, 2017, 11:49:18 AM »
Surah Sad 38-5

What is the meaning of ‘Has he made the gods [only] one God?’ in the following verses.
And they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves. And the disbelievers say, "This is a magician and a liar. [38-4] Has he made the gods [only] one God? Indeed, this is a curious thing." [Surah Sad 38-5]

Swami replied: Even if Jesus is reduced to the lowest stage of Messenger, the ego and jealousy of brutal ignorant devotees may still punish the Messenger doubting the authority of the Messenger. A messenger himself may write a hot message in the name of somebody and may deliver it to you as a postman. What is the authority that the messenger is a postman? The messenger might be wearing a duplicate uniform dress of the postal department! This means that the miracles performed by the messenger (due to will of God) may be fraud like the magic, which appears as a miracle. This is the climax of ego and jealousy and for such devotees, nothing can be explained as the message of God. Such devotees are considered as demons, who will never agree with the greatness of others. Such souls are totally condemned and thrown into the liquid fire of hell forever. At least, they can examine the message and decide whether it is from God or the manipulation of the messenger. Sharp analysis will reveal the truth and if it is truth, it must be certainly from God.
