Swami answers questions by Shri Anil

1. Since the background is not known, the soul may say that it is not at fault for any retort from its side?

[Shri Anil Antony asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, Kindly give Your replies to the following questions. At Your Divine Lotus Feet-anil. “Due to the lack of the knowledge of the background that was related to previous births, sometimes, justice appears as injustice.” Based on this, since the background is not known the soul may say that he is not at fault for any retort from his/her side? Kindly clarify.]

Swami replied:- Though the details of the background are not known, at least the knowledge of the basic concept (that it may be a retort-case) exists within your mind. If you cannot rectify your damage by the retort, what is the practical use of your retort? Better leave the retort to God, who says that revenge belongs to Him.

2. Swami, is there any permanent solution for the Palestine–Israel conflict at Gaza, where millions of people are suffering?

Swami replied:- Suffering is the fruit of sin and enjoying is the fruit of merit as per the divine constitution. Of course, serving the suffering is also high merit.

3. Does God in human form use a devotee to convey a message to other devotees?

Swami replied:- If it is required so, even worldly people do so and God can also do that depending on the necessity of the program.

4. Is the following verse refer to Human incarnation of God and His mission?

[Revelation 21:1-4. A New Heaven and a New Earth: 1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Swami kindly give the inner essence of this, is this refer to Human incarnation of God and His mission?]

Swami replied:- The inner meaning of this is the total reformation of the present society by the propagation of spiritual knowledge of the incarnation.

5. If God had sent a daughter instead of His son Jesus, what might have been different?

[Questions from internet.]

Swami replied:- God has balance of mind and knowledge of factors that are suitable to the culture of the program.

6. Will God forgive for the sexual thoughts about God and the Holy Spirit?

Swami replied:- Such thought may lead to illegal activity in the world. You have to take more care about this angle.

7. In which religions, does Lord Krishna appear?

Swami replied:- If you take (you must take) Krishna as the unimaginable God or Parabrahman, then He appears as incarnation in every religion.

8. Where is God's home in this universe?

Swami replied:- The entire creation is God’s home only.

9. What is the importance of 7 generations in Hinduism?

Swami replied:- It only indicates that the sin done by you affects your past seven generations and your future seven generations.

10. Is it possible to mock God and still be saved?

Swami replied:- You can mock God with the basis of excess of love. Still, you can be saved.

11. Why did Yudhisthira go to heaven alone as he did sin by betting Draupadi and his brothers?

Swami replied:- Yudhisthira went to heaven for his excellent character of following justice throughout his life and avoiding always injustice. Some minor mistakes led him to hell just to see hell and not to undergo any punishment. Neglecting small mistakes is a good tradition also.

12. Where was God living or standing when He was creating earth and heaven?

Swami replied:- God is unimaginable and your brain cannot penetrate into the unimaginable domain. He is beyond the imaginable domain.

13. In Hinduism, why does God need a wife when He can create everything in the world by Himself?

Swami replied:- Just to show the path to be followed by the humanity, God practices all the justified human traditions (Loka saṅgrahamevā'pi…—Gita).

14. Why does God take away health from some people during old age?

Swami replied:- Everything depends on the deeds done by souls based on the cycle of deeds and fruits that is running on the basis of the divine constitution framed by God.

15. What does scripture say about Rukmini's thoughts after she learned that Krishna loved Radha more than her?

Swami replied:- There are good thoughts only in the mind of Rukmini because she knows well that Krishna is God and all the wives including Gopikas are only devotees of God. If Krishna and Rukmini are human beings, thoughts would have been as per your expectations.

16. Is Yoganidra found in God or a special soul like Yogi same?

[Shri Anil Antony asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, Kindly give Your responses to the following questions.-At Your Divine Lotus Feet, anil.

‘Yoganidra’ found in the case of God or a special soul called Yogi, is it the same? Kindly clarify?]

Swami replied:- In the case of God, God is aware of the administration. In the case of Yogi, he is aware of God. The day and night mentioned here are not in the physical sense. The day means the awareness of God and night means the awareness of world. The yogi is always having daytime, and the ordinary, ignorant souls are always in the night.

17. a) Is stoppage of breath death? Can we say if breath is not available, awareness is not produced?

Swami replied:- If breath is stopped the oxidation of food is stopped and production of inert energy is stopped due to which all the biological systems stop functioning. If the inert energy is not available the production of awareness is also stopped because it is the inert energy that is transformed into awareness in a functioning brain-nervous system.

b) Is the soul in deep sleep during death and awakened in energetic body after death?

[Can we say that during death, the soul is in the state of deep sleep (coma state) and after death, the soul awakens in a new energetic body and continue in that state thereafter?]

Swami replied:- The soul has nothing to do with the body in which it is present. During death, awareness exists as per the divine rule of God and such awareness mixed with the information drawn from brain-chip leaves the gross body after entering the new subtle body.

c) Is leaving of soul into another energetic body during death, a natural phenomena? Please clarify.

Swami replied:- It is the natural phenomenon because it is the divine rule. Every divine rule happens naturally and is called as natural phenomenon.

18. a) How can Chit and Chittam be same, when the former is a process and the latter is physical item?

[How Chit (awareness) and Chittam (Storage unit) can be the same, when the latter is physical item that is brain and the former is a process (work form of inert energy)? Kindly clarify this.]

Swami replied:- Chit is the awareness that stores the information for some time before it is recorded on the brain-chip. The inert materialized brain-chip is also storing the information for a long time. Both chit and chittam are said to be the same in view of this special capacity of storing information. It does not mean that both matter (brain-chip) and energy (awareness) are one and the same.

b) After death, how can a physical item like Chittam exist in the new energetic body?

[After death, when mass is absent in the new energetic body, how can a physical item like Chittam (storage unit) exist? Or can we say that in this state, awareness alone exists and it is both Chit and Chittam?]

Swami replied:- You have not read My message completely. I told that the awareness present in the subtle body draws the information from the brain-chip and stores in it. The awareness (chit) has both the capacities of grasping and storing the information. The individual soul (awareness with drawn information) exists in the subtle body and the brain-chip is always in the gross body only.

c) During death, is only the information chip transferred, not the awareness?

[Kindly clarify during death only the information chip is transferred not the awareness itself? Or the information chip embedded in the awareness is transferred from the dead body to the new body?]n

Swami replied:- The information chip is always in the gross body and never enters the subtle body. During the death time the awareness exists as per the divine constitution. Somebody dies in deep sleep and awareness is absent in deep sleep. Hence, the awareness is forcibly created by the functioning brain nervous system in such death. Such awareness draws information from brain-chip and becomes the individual soul, which on entering the new subtle body leaves the gross body during death.
