Posted on: 01/06/2024

[Prof. JSR Prasad asked:- Swami, Shankara said that God is attained by deep sleep (Suṣuptyeka siddhaḥ). You say that the fundamental awareness disappears there since the brain-nervous system is fully taking rest without functioning. How do You resolve this contradiction?]

Swami replied:- In deep sleep, the world is not at all grasped due to the disappearance of fundamental awareness that is to be produced by the inert energy in a functioning brain-nervous system. Since this system is taking complete rest without function...

Reply to the poem 'Swami-The Sweetest Scolder' of Smt. Chhanda

Posted on: 27/05/2024

Swami replied:-

1)  God in human form will help the real devotees by altering the punishment, which is very convenient to the devotee so that the devotee feels that he is not punished at all while undergoing the alternative punishment that is accepted in the divine constitution. The example for this is a rich business man pulling the railway chain is punished by a fine of 1000 rupees and a poor beggar doing the same is punished...

Swami, is there an alternative form for Your suffering the sin of Your real devotee?

Posted on: 26/05/2024

He was confused with the laws of motion...

What is Your answer to the pastor, who was scolding Manusmruti?

Posted on: 26/05/2024

[Prof. JSR Prasad asked:- Sāṣṭāṅga namaskāraṃ Swami, in YouTube, I saw a video entitled ‘Manusmruti Vs. Bible’  by a pastor (Aruna Kumar) in which he was scolding Manusmruti in which it is written that the Brahmana caste is greatest before which all others are treated as servants. By this, he was blaming the Hindu religion. What is Your answer to this pastor?]

Swami replied:- We have to sympathize with the pastor for committing a great error before he started this topic. British rulers projected the caste differences so that they can divide and rule the India. This pastor belongs to their religion...

Swami, why is Your spiritual knowledge attracting everybody very much?

Posted on: 24/05/2024

[A question by Ms. Thrylokya]

The third point is that modern preachers are preaching spiritual knowledge totally concentrated on worldly logic and the efforts of the souls without...

Swami answers questions of Ms. Thrylokya

Posted on: 20/05/2024

1. Can it also be inferred that the father of Satyakaama must be a Brahmana by birth?

[Ms. Thrylokya asked:- Paadanamaskaaram Swami. Swami, You told that Goutama inferred Satyakaama Jaabaala to be a Brahmana because he told the bitter truth about his birth. This inference may be in another way also, which is that the father of Satyakaama must be a Brahmana by birth.]

Swami replied:- Even if Goutama came to know from the mother of Satyakaama that the father of the boy was a Brahmana by birth, Goutama will not decide Satyakaama to be a Brahmana without testing the quality of speaking...

God will Respond in the Same Phase as the Devotee Approaching Him

Posted on: 16/05/2024

1. Suppose God in human form takes My suffering onto Him, shall I not be concerned and worried about it?

[A question by Smt. Chhanda]

This is called as Paraa Prakruti, which sustains everything. This individual soul grasps and sustains all the information and is called cittam or cit. Cit is in the context of grasping the information and cittam is in the context...

1. Can I always praise You in the following way?

[Ms. Thrylokya asked:- Swami, You are Parabrahman or God Datta, the absolute reality and this creation is only inherently relative reality becoming absolute reality due to Your gifted absolute reality. I like to praise You through this concept all the time. Is it okay?]
