Swami answers devotees' questions

1. I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude.

[Smt. Amudha asked: Padha Namaskaram Swami🙇🏻‍♀️🙏🏻 Thank You Swami, I experienced the unconditional love and guidance in video making. Even though, I have so much defects, ignorance, and I am incapable of it. I am 100% confident, and honestly saying that this whole process of video production happened because of Shri Datta Swami grace. Please make me do whatever makes You happy Swami. My effort is nothing and You are the Doer of any good things in the Universe. At Your Divine Feet Swami, I am writing this to express my sincere thankfulness.

On Sunday, October 1 – A draft version of Trailokya Gita chapter 5 is shared from my end. Later in a day, I got to know that a lot of modifications were required and there was a subtitle-audio sync up issue and the videos which I used were not relevant to the context. On Tuesday, we tried to incorporate the changes. Ms. Thrylokya sister provided the details on what video would be the relevant one and which can be placed, Mr. Diwakaro brother and Ms. Swathika sister literally did that audio and subtitle sync up. Somehow on the second time of rendering, there was a subtitle issue. Mr. Diwakaro brother found the root cause of the issue. And I felt bad that I don't have energy in mind and body to do more update in editing on Thursday. After a few changes again, I rendered the video praying Swami. I set alarm at 3 AM on Friday to watch the render status then I slept around 10.30 PM. On Friday morning, when I woke up at 3 AM, the laptop was drained out of battery again I started rendering at the time. Then around 11.30 to 11.55 AM the video got generated without any subtitle issue. Throughout the process, I learned that there are so many capable devotee sisters and brothers at Swami's feet. But I do not have any skill or capabilities to do it but still Swami who poured His kindness and unconditional love on me. Not only this, Swami saved me in a lot of troubles and accidents as well. Every day and second is His mercy. Thank You Swami, Padha namaskaram Swami 🙇🏻‍♀️ 🙏🏻 At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Amudha]

Swami replied:- I felt very happy to read your message.

2. Is standing next to a person drinking or smoking a sin?

[Shri Ganesh asked: Padanamaskaram Swamiji, At Your divine feet, Ganesh V]

Swami replied:- It is not a sin because you are not drinking and smoking directly. But, that will provoke you to catch that habit.

3. Is there Runaanubandha (clearance of loans done in previous births) within a family also?

[A question by Ms. Geetha Lahari]

Swami replied:- Certainly, the clearance of loans exists within the family and outside the family. Only to clear the loans, the souls take birth together in a family. When you allow others to spend for you, yourself and that other person will be born in a family in the next birth and the loan is cleared along with the interest.
