  1. Donation of food is said to be greatest The human race is the blessed category of the creation since the human being alone has the faculty of devotion to God. You must save the life of every human being if it is in need. Even if the human being is an atheist, you must save the life since the atheist has a chance of becoming a devotee in future. Therefore, donation of food is said to be greatest since it is the basis of life. But, you should donate it to the deserving people only. 'Deserving' means any human being suffering for food. The human being must work and earn the food without begging as far as possible. Otherwise, people become lazy without doing work. Hence, while donating the food to a person capable of doing work, you should analyze the background carefully. Generally, poor children, poor old persons, poor disabled and poor patients can be accepted as deserving receivers of your donated food. A rich person should be always avoided as far as possible leaving rare emergent occasions. Do not have any analysis in the occasions of emergency demanding immediate service. Such donation is called as 'Apat-dharma'. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  2. By wasting money you are displeasing God You are either wasting most of your wealth or donating it to the un-deserving people. You are under the illusion that you are pleasing God. You do not know that God is becoming more and more furious with you. You are wasting ghee and other materials by burning them in fire during rituals. The word 'fire' is misunderstood as the physical fire created by burning the wood. Such physical fire is only called as 'Yajnasadhanam', which means that it is the instrumental item used in the sacrifice since it is used in cooking the food. The hunger of a deserving person is the divine fire called as 'Vaishwanara agni', which is to be worshipped by supplying the food associated with ghee [Aham vaishwanaro bhutvaa..Geeta]. The hunger of a deserving person is the deity-fire, which is divine since it should be worshipped by surrendering food to eat. Feeding a hungry deserving person is the worship of fire-deity. The fire is in three forms: [1] Physical fire prepared by wood [bhautikaagni or Laukikaagni], [2] fire in the form of electrical energy [Vaidyutaagni] and [3] hunger-fire of a deserving person, which is divine called as deity-fire [Vaishwanaraagni or Devataagni] . While cooking the food, the first and second forms must be used and while worshipping, the third form should be selected. You should select the form of fire as per the context and then only you are the scholar of Veda. Veda means knowledge. You should do every step of the ritual with analytical knowledge [Jnaatvaa kurvita..Geeta]. Sage Yaska says that if you do the ritual without the knowledge, you will not get the fruit and it will be like cooking the food without fire [Anagnauviva..]. The fire given in the simile by Yaska itself is misunderstood! www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  3. Feed only hungry deserving priests The first hymn of the first Veda says that the fire is the deserving priest and not the physical fire [Agnimele purohitam]. Kapila in Bhagavatam says that fools only burn ghee and food in the fire. The word ghee indicates the best food prepared with ghee and not mere ghee. You have to understand this meaning through the concept of 'lakshana'. When you call the seller of apples by calling "Oh apples! Come", by 'lakshana', you mean the possessor of apples to come along with the apples and not mere apples. Similarly, the word 'ghee' means the food associated with the ghee. Both the words 'agni' and 'ghee' are totally misunderstood by the foolish ignorant priests, who are burning the ghee in physical fire. They mislead the devotees by saying that the angels eat the food through the fire [Agnimukhaah..Veda]. Here, the Vedic statement means that the angels eat the food through the hungry deserving priests. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  4. Priests are exploiting the weakness of the devotees Veda says that all the angels reside in the body of the priest, who is the scholar of the correct Vedic knowledge [Yaavatirvai..].The priests are exploiting the weakness of the devotees, which is the desire to fulfill their ambitions through rituals. The ignorant priest is doing all this foolish act to earn some money from the devotees. The devotee, instead of getting the good fruit is punished in the hell for burning the ghee and other materials in the physical fire. The priest is also severely punished in the hell and since he is the initiator of this sin, he is punished with poverty also in this life itself. The essence of all Vedic rituals in only to save the life of humanity suffering with hunger. The entire aim is misinterpreted and is mislead leading the devotees to hell. Lord Krishna asked the wives of sages to give food to his friends suffering with hunger even before the ritual thereby establishing the actual aim of the ritual, which is only to feed the hungry people. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  5. In temple should food should be given to beggars and poor deserving persons only The temple funds must be spent by the wise management of temple only in proper ways You are donating money to the temple after getting some benefit from God through a business-contract. The devotee says that if he gets 1 lakh rupees, he will donate 10 percent to God. Such business-contract is the worst way of love to God. You are giving your wealth to your children without such business- contract. God is not having even the value of your children! However, when you donate something to the temple, they are giving the food to all the devotees as the remains of offering to God [Prasadam]. Even the rich devotees, who are not in need of food also are forced to eat it due to fear. Therefore, your donation is not properly utilized. Let the capable rich devotees make their own arrangements for their food. The management of the temple should give food to beggars and poor deserving persons only. If there is extra money, let it be used in serving the poor people and beggars in other ways. It is also good to spend the money in propagation of devotion through several programs. Thus there is no proper utilization of your donation. The government is grabbing some of the funds of the temple for social service. Everybody knows the misuse of funds in every social work. Let the government spend the taxes and other revenues only in such social works. The temple funds must be spent by the wise management of temple only in proper ways mentioned as above. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  6. Who is the really deserving person to receive donation? You should approach God and not the other human beings for your needs Who is the really deserving person? Veda says that the person not expecting anything from anybody is the most deserving receiver of your donation [Akaamahatasya]. The deserving person must have full faith in God and should believe that God will give him all the required needs of the life. He should work and earn and if something is needed beyond the scope of the work, God is going to help him in the correct moment. He need not beg other human beings, who are beggars themselves, praying God to fulfill their desires. A beggar should not beg another beggar and should go to the house, which donated food to the other beggar. Similarly, you should approach God and not the other human beings for your needs, which are not covered by your work. In fact, a true devotee should not beg even God because God is omniscient and will act at the right time. Therefore, if one is expecting something from you, he is not a deserving person since his faith in God is not complete. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  7. A true deserving person do not expect anything… If you take the example of Kuchela [sudama], he never begged any person and did not beg even God. He was forced by his wife to beg Lord Krishna. He went to Lord Krishna but did not ask anything since he knows that Lord is omniscient. He stayed in the house of Krishna for a few days and returned back to his home. Krishna did not give a single rupee even though He observed the extreme condition of poverty of Kuchela. If you are in the place of Kuchela, you will certainly scold Krishna at least in your mind during your return journey. Kuchela did not entertain even a trace of such idea in his mind at any time. The omniscient Lord Krishna was constantly observing the mind of Kuchela during his return journey. The Lord was extremely pleased since no such idea could enter the mind of Kuchela. Therefore, the Lord gave immense wealth to Kuchela. The only donation done by Krishna in His entire life was this only. The Lord was waiting for such a deserving person. You compare yourself with Krishna. You do donations in hasty way without patience to catch a deserving receiver. You go to Varanasi on the day of Maha Shivaratri and you are in hurry to return back by next day. You think that your donation in a particular place at a particular time only becomes fruitful. You are captured by such false illusion and donate to an un-deserving person in that place on that day. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  8. The place and the time can never influence your donation Only the deservingness of the receiver decides the fruit of your donation The place [desha] and the time [kaala] can never influence your donation. Only the deservingness of the receiver decides the fruit of your donation. Krishna did not donate wealth to Kuchela at Varanasi on Maha Shivaratri. When the most deserving Kuchela was found, that place is Varanasi and that day is Maha Shivaratri. Krishna spent almost the entire life to search for a deserving receiver. You do not have patience to search a deserving receiver for your petty donation. Instead of purchasing sin by your petty donations on such foolish occasions, you better accumulate all those petty donations and donate the entire accumulated wealth when you find a real deserving receiver. You will get very high fruit for such accumulated donation. Instead of this, you are purchasing the sin in bits only through your petty donations on such foolish occasions in specified places. The deservingness of receiver [paatra] alone decides the result of your donation and there is no trace of influence of place [desha] and time[kaala] on the result. You must not do donation with emotion. Several beggars exploit you by kindling your emotion through false appearance by creating sympathy in your heart. You can find a beggar limping during the process of donation in the railway compartment. As soon as he gets down from that compartment, he walks straightly and more fast than yourself! He gets into the next compartment and starts again limping! Therefore, you should have patience and analysis to study the deservingness of receiver and you should not be fooled at any cost. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  9. The real meaning of Gayatri Mantra 'Gayatri' means the song of God that protects all the human beings irrespective of caste and sex [Gayaan traayate iti]. Thus, any song of God that attracts your mind provoking you to sing again and again so that the knowledge conveyed by it is constantly revised. Today, people are chanting some hymn of Veda present in a meter called 'Gayatri' without any trace of singing and which does not attract your mind to repeat and revise the knowledge again and again, is considered as 'Gayatri Mantra'! In view of the actual concept, it cannot be treated as 'Gayatri Mantra'. The foolish priests are stamping such hymn as 'Gayatri Mantra' and further say that the females and other castes are not eligible for it. First of all, what you say as 'Gayatri Mantra' is not 'Gayatri Mantra' at all in view of its actual concept. This is the first mistake. The second mistake is to deny such false 'Gayatri Mantra' to ladies and other castes. 'Gayatri' means any song of God in any mother tongue that protects any soul [Gaya] irrespective of caste and sex. The third mistake is to treat 'Gayatri Mantra' as a female deity, which actually means singing on God in any convenient language. The fourth mistake is to deny 'Gayatri Mantra' to females for which a female deity is super imposed and reject all the female souls as not eligible. Thus, the actual concept is totally buried and a chain of misinterpretations have buried the true concept resulting in blind tradition of ignorance. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  10. The real meaning of mediation The knowledge of God alone generates the meditation Surya asked Swami “ Some people are asking about the necessity of the preacher (Guru) since we can meditate upon God directly as Buddhists practice it.” Swami replied --- People are using the word ‘Meditation’ without knowing its exact concept. The word meditation means the intensified interest upon God. The interest on any item is generated by the knowledge of details of that item. Therefore, the knowledge of God alone generates the meditation. Knowledge cannot be obtained from scriptures directly without proper preacher. You cannot obtain the correct knowledge from books without going to the class room in which the teacher explains the knowledge present in the text book in a proper way. You cannot read the textbook straightly and obtain correct knowledge without the classroom and teacher. The knowledge also covers the other two aspects apart from the goal, which is God. The other two aspects are the concept about yourself and the concept about the correct path to please God. The knowledge becomes complete only when all the three aspects are correctly explained. The meditation is not the concept about the path to please God. It only means your interest about the details of the goal. After receiving the details about God, you will be interested in God. When this interest becomes very strong, it is called as meditation. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  11. Bhddha & Unimaginable God God is unimaginable according to Buddha The purpose of Bhddha’s dramatic meditation The process of meditation means the deep analysis about God The contemporary human incarnation is the only way to catch the unimaginable God Buddha is incarnation of God and does not require meditation. He behaved like an ordinary human being to show that how a human being should be deeply interested about God. The word meditation also indicates the process of effort to know the unknowable God. After spending a long time to know God, Buddha declared that God is unimaginable and the declaration was done through silence. Therefore, the silence about God means that God is unimaginable according to Buddha. Even before doing the long meditation under the huge tree, Buddha knows that God is unimaginable because He was the human incarnation of God. Then, what was the purpose of His dramatic meditation? He enacted the process of meditation to give a message to every human being that one should meditate upon God for a long time to realize finally that God is unimaginable. In this context the process of meditation means the deep analysis about God. Unless there is intensified interest on God, one will not think so deeply about God. Hence, even in this context, the word meditation means only intensified interest. Buddhism indicates the surrender to contemporary human incarnation through the first statement “Buddham sharanam…”. The contemporary human incarnation is the only way to catch the unimaginable God. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  12. The silence of Buddha- the secret Buddhists misunderstood Buddha by taking His silence for negation. The silence of Buddha about God was misunderstood and Buddhists felt that Buddha indicated the absence of God through silence. When you have concluded that God does not exist at all, then, what is the object of your meditation? If you say that the self is the object, there is no benefit in taking interest about yourself since you are always interested in yourself. Your interest on yourself is natural and spontaneous and there is no need of any effort for it. By such meditation you are not going to be blessed by yourself. Yourself is a part of the creation and is not the creator who, is beyond the creation. Veda says that one bird on the tree is eating the substance of the tree and other bird is shining without eating it (Dvaa suparnaa..). This is the context of human incarnation in which it is said that the human body is the tree, one bird is the individual soul and the other bird is unimaginable God. The human bird is a part of the creation. The soul is eating the substance of the human body or creation. This means that the creation, human body and the soul are made of the same common component, which is the inert cosmic energy. Since space is energy, the soul, human body and creation have spatial dimensions. The unimaginable God is not eating and this means that the unimaginable God is beyond energy or space. Therefore, there is no use when the soul, which is a part of cosmic energy meditates upon itself or even upon the entire infinite cosmic energy, which is this entire creation. There will be any use if the soul meditates upon the creator, who is beyond the cosmic energy. But, you may say that meditation upon unimaginable God is impossible. We agree to this point and the solution is to meditate upon the contemporary human incarnation with which you can directly interact. Otherwise, you can meditate upon any item of the creation as a representative model of the unimaginable God, but you cannot directly interact with God through this way. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  13. Shankara stressed on self analysis just to avoid grief Shankara advised meditation upon self, which means the deep analysis about self. The human being is under the illusion that the human body consisting of matter and energy is self. Shankara removed the concept of matter and concluded that self is only a bit of cosmic energy in essence. In fact, since matter and space are also different forms of cosmic energy, the self becomes a part of continuous ocean of cosmic energy only. In such situation the self cannot be isolated and hence the finite itself becomes the infinite ocean of cosmic energy. The word Brahaman used by Shankara denotes only this continuous infinite cosmic energy. This cosmic energy is the source, controller and dissolver of the entire creation consisting of various materialized forms. This picture concludes that all the materialized forms are unreal in absolute sense and removes all the worldly bonds and the subsequent grief. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  14. Shankara Vs Buddha Shankara told that absolute unimaginable God is Para Brahma Both Buddha and Shankara kept silent about the absolute unimaginable God The word Brahman in the philosophy of Shankara never means the unimaginable God, who cannot be indicated by any word. Shankara clearly told that absolute unimaginable God indicated by the word Para Brahma can be expressed through silence only (Maunavyaakhyaa..). The word Para Brahma means that which is beyond Brahman. Therefore, the word Brahma in the philosophy of Shankara clearly stands for the essence of the creation, which is cosmic energy only. The final use of this meditation is to know that you are this infinite cosmic energy (Brahman) and live without any worldly tension. Shankara was also human incarnation and never opposed Buddha. He opposed the Buddhists only, who misunderstood Buddha and became atheists. According to Shankara meditation always means the critical analysis about the self to get salvation from the worldly tensions. Due to the eccentric ego of the then atheists, Shankara did not go beyond this since the atheists will not accept God beyond themselves. This limitation is not due to limited knowledge of Shankara, but is due to the then existing situation of the psychology of the surrounding society. Even Buddha kept silent about God because the society dealt by Him consisted of Purvamimamsakas, who were strong atheists. Buddha told that everything including the self is only relatively real (Shunyam). This is correct because the self is a part of the cosmic energy or creation, which is relatively real with respect to the absolute unimaginable God. Buddha stopped at this point because the atheists cannot realize the existence of unimaginable God indicated through His silence. The point of Buddha is that if God is non-existent, the entire creation including yourself is non-existent. Shankara wanted to establish the existence of God. For this purpose, He made the infinite cosmic energy as the God. He brought out the identity of yourself with the continuous cosmic energy and made yourself the God. Since you will not negate the existence of yourself, you will accept the existence of God, who is yourself. Both Buddha and Shankara kept silent about the absolute unimaginable God. The same philosophy was dealt by them in different angles in different situations. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  15. The practical side and the proof of real meditation Meditation either means the analysis of an object to know its real nature or the attraction towards an item by remembering it again and again. All this is theoretical phase. The practical side and the proof of real meditation is the sacrifice of everything for the sake of it and continuous service to it. The practical meditation alone brings you the fruit. Meditation about self may give you salvation from the worldly tension. But, meditation about God brings you the eternal grace and eternal protection from God. Salvation can never be permanent and you may be bonded again. But the grace of God is always permanent. You can aspire salvation as temporary relief so that you can concentrate upon the meditation of God. Salvation from the worldly bonds based on self meditation is always temporary and by the grace of God alone it becomes permanent. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  16. The fall of Hindu religion People follow ritual due to fear Hindu religion is very fortunate that it is built up by ancient learned sages, who analyzed the philosophy to the climax and hence every concept is enlightened by the radiance of deep spiritual knowledge. This point was true in the past when Sanskrit language was the mother tongue of everybody so that whenever the scripture, Veda, in the form of Sanskrit hymns was recited, everybody understood it clearly. By this, every ritual was a revision of the spiritual concepts. Thereby the spiritual knowledge was strengthened repeatedly. But, today what is the position of this greatest religion? The Sanskrit hymns are recited in every ritual as usual. Neither the reader nor the audience, understand the meaning of the scripture even once. It is a blind recitation of sounds in Greek and Latin. Everybody is continuing the ritual with the fear that if the ritual is not performed, there may be negative results in the present worldly life and also in the life after death in the upper world. There is no interest in ritual since knowledge is absent and the driving force of the ritual is only fear. Due to this unfortunate situation, people are not even listening those sounds uttered by the priests and become busy in other activities. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  17. People are neglecting God during rituals For example, when the ritual of the marriage is going on, nobody even listens the sounds uttered by the priests even for fraction of minute because nothing is understood. Everybody is busy in other activities and conversations during the ritual. Can there be more unfortunate thing than this? All the hymns are speaking something about God. You are neglecting that means that you are neglecting God. Can there be more insult than this to God? Can you expect even a trace of grace of God from such ritual? The climax of misfortune is that even the priest, who is reading the scripture is unaware of the meaning. Do you find anybody who speaks something and does not understand the meaning of what he speaks and even the listener does not understand it? Even the birds and animals understand the meaning of the sounds generated within themselves. But here is the peculiar situation where even the human beings, who developed beautiful communication through systematic languages speak and listen some sounds without serving the real purpose of communication! By this, Hinduism, which was in the top position in the past is now in the lowest position. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  18. People are blindly continuing process of recitation The priest learns the hymns through recitation without knowing the meanings. He spends few years in learning this mechanical recitation of scripture and straightly enters the field of earning his livelihood. There is no need of mechanical recitation of the scripture, when the scripture is already printed. In those days, when the printing was not developed, there was no other way to preserve the scripture than through the mechanical recitation. Therefore, the process of mechanical recitation existed and hence the mechanical recitation was justified. People are blindly continuing that process of recitation even today when the actual need for such recitation ended. This is called as blind tradition in which you follow something blindly from the past without analyzing it. It is said that all old is not gold and all modern need not be correct. You have to decide the correctness based on sharp analysis of everything i.e., old or modern (Puraanamityeva…..). The priest should learn the meaning of the scripture without wasting his time on blind recitation of the printed book. The priest can recite the scripture by reading the book in ritual and explain the meaning of hymns to create interest in the audience. The priests of the other religion like Christianity, Islam etc., are reading the books of scripture in the rituals. You may say that one should only recite and not read the book as per the authority of the scripture (Tathaa likhitapathakah). This authority is not valid since it is only Smruti, that is created by the human beings, and not Shuruti, that is created by God. The same Smruti also says that you should know the meaning (Anarthajno…). The priest himself generated the authority because he found the mechanical recitation easier than learning its meaning. The priest has also created a false propagation that the sound of the scripture itself generates good even without knowing its meaning. This is again worst interpretation because the basic purpose of communication through language is murdered and hence the logic (Yukti) opposes such false concept. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  19. Scripture should be recited knowing the meaning Managements of temples should rectifiy this The sage Yaska said that the scripture recited without knowing the meaning is totally waste and will not give any result. The scripture also says that you should recite and also know the meaning (Adhyetavyo Jneyashcha). In fact, the first word ‘Adhyetavyo’ means actually knowing the meaning only according to Sanskrit grammar and hence recitation is not meant. Since you have forcibly super imposed the recitation as the meaning of the first word (Rudhi). The second word ‘Jneyashcha’ is introduced to negate the superimposed meaning of the first word. In fact, the very meaning of Veda is to know the meaning and it means knowledge of the scripture and not blind recitation. All the managements of the temples should come forward to rectify this unfortunate mistake that cropped up the Hindu religion. They should patronize the students to learn the meaning of the scripture and should discourage the blind recitation. They should also support the propagation of Sanskrit language in the Hindu public so that the people will understand at least the basic meaning of the scripture without translation by the priest and the priest may be involved in the elaborate explanation of the scripture. If this is done, God will be pleased to maximum extent since God Himself is the author of Veda. If this fundamental mistake is rectified, there is no need of propagation of spiritual knowledge since every priest propagates the spiritual knowledge in every ritual. This should be the primary activity of the temple. The next activity of temples should be to help the beggars and poor people and to adopt discrimination of poor and rich in the devotees while serving the devotees with the funds. If this is done God will be very much pleased with the managements of the temples. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  20. Omnipotence-the real meaning To achieve the knowledge and control of everything, God need not be present everywhere God does not want to confuse the people as far as possible You can use the point of omnipotence in this aspect of creation of a different thing other than God by God without the pre-existence of a second thing. Now, the sin is not God and hence the sin will be punished. Similarly, you need not say that God entered every part of creation. In such case, there should be something other than God for the process of entry. If there is nothing different from God, the process of entry is meaningless since there is only one God and God cannot enter God. Veda speaks about the entry of God in to creation (Tadavanupravishat..). In such case, Veda becomes false. If only God exists even after the creation, God cannot enter Himself. If there is God in everything, God exists in the sinner also and the punishment of sinner results in the punishment of God. People bring the concept of existence of God in everything so that God is aware of everything (Omniscient) and controls everything due to His omnipresence. To achieve the knowledge and control of everything, God need not be present everywhere. He can know and control everything through His omnipotence. Even a king, who is not omnipotent, knows and controls everything in his kingdom. Therefore, when we say that God entered the entire cosmic energy in the case of formation of Hiranyagarbha, it only means that God exists as milk in vessel. The vessel only contains the milk and milk is not pervading all the walls of vessel. If God pervades the entire cosmic energy, He will be present even in a sinner. Therefore, the point of omnipotence should be used in proper place and in proper angle so that there will not be confusion in the minds of the people. God will follow the rules of worldly logic only as far as possible so that people can understand Him and His actions easily. He does not want to confuse the people as far as possible by using His omnipotence everywhere as He likes. He uses the power of omnipotence only in a rare place, when it becomes inevitable. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  21. Past human incarnations Vs Present human incarnaton The human incarnation is most relevant for any human being Unless, the alive human form of God is caught, clear knowledge cannot dawn in the mind of a human being Today is Samkranti, which means transfer of sun from south to north. Sun represents the intelligence, which is the basis of logical analysis. The Gayatri mantra also says that sun provokes the intelligence. The south represents the path of rituals, which involves the worship of representatives of energetic forms of God like statues or formless models of Vishnu, Shiva, etc. and the worship of statues of past human incarnations like Rama, Krishna, etc. In this path, the statues or some formless representatives are selected for worship because the spiritual aspirant has not yet conquered his ego and jealousy towards contemporary human incarnation, which, in fact is the most relevant address of God for a human being. The three great epics of Hindu religion (Ramayana, Mahabharatam and Bhagavatam) preach about the two great past human incarnations called as Rama and Krishna. Even the Bible of Christianity is based on the past human incarnation called as Jesus. The Islam is based on another human incarnation called as Mohammed. The Buddhism is based on the human incarnation called as Buddha. Jainism is also based on the human incarnation called as Mahavir. The human incarnation is most relevant for any human being because God always comes in human form only to preach human beings. Even the energetic form is also in human shape only, which is relevant to souls in energetic bodies only and hardly there is any practical example that the energetic from of God preached the human beings. The human energetic form is again an indication to the human being to divert to the alive human form of God. Unless, the alive human form of God is caught, clear knowledge cannot dawn in the mind of a human being. But, the alive human form of God is recognized only when ego and jealousy are conquered. Hence, the path of knowledge (Jnana) is represented by the north. The diversion of the sun from south to north indicates the human being diverting from the path of rituals (karma) towards the path of knowledge, which is based on Satguru or the contemporary human incarnation. This diversion denotes the conquer of ego and jealousy by the spiritual aspirant towards a co-human form. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  22. The training of the human being in the ritualistic path The time to catch the contemporary human incarnation The path of rituals denotes the absence of knowledge due to the absence of alive human form of God. The rituals involved the sacrifice of valuable materials for the sake of God. These materials are either wasted or stolen by the priests, business men and managements. Valuable food materials like ghee is burnt in fire and milk, honey, fruit juice, etc. are wasted in bathing the statues. This clearly shows full ignorance but the merit is that sacrifice for God is developed. The wastage of materials is inevitable because the aspirant has not yet conquered the ego and jealousy to recognize the alive human form of God, who has come down to the earth to enjoy at your sacrifice of such valuable materials in His worship to bless you. Such sacrifice of materials is the proof of practical devotion. You are proving your deep love by such practical sacrifice towards your beloved family members and hence there is no debate in this point. In the first stage, such practical sacrifice is done by the human beings based on the business to give and take. The sacrifice of wealth and materials is for getting some benefits in return from God. In the initial stage, God also becomes a business man like Lord Venkateswara on seven hills. In course of time, the devotees are expected to develop real love to God by which the same practical sacrifice is done without aspiring anything in return. When this is achieved, the training of the human being in the ritualistic path is completed. Now, if the ego and jealousy towards a co-human form is also achieved by doing such practical sacrifice of materials to poor devotees, the time to catch the contemporary human incarnation has come. Now the human being should analyze the real and relevant address of God through reasoning. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  23. Bhudha’s statement regarding scriptures Buddha said that without analysis, blind acceptance of even scripture and tradition is of no use. The scripture is already a well-settled conclusion of long logical debates. But, unfortunately, the wrong interpretation of the scripture is always developed through bad logic. This bad logic must be rejected by good logic, which is the reasonable process of reasoning. Therefore, when Buddha said that you should not accept the scripture blindly, means that you should not accept blindly the wrong interpretation of the scripture. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  24. Rituals get dropped when you meet contemporary human incarnation The diversion of sun from south to north takes place in the middle of the year, which represents the middle age of your entire life. If you are coming to Satguru in the middle age, you will have sufficient energy and life to do practical service to God. Hanuman met Rama in His middle age. Radha met Krishna in Her earlier part of middle age. The people, who are not diverted towards Satguru continue to worship the models of energetic forms of angels and departed ancestors through the blind rituals. When the Satguru is achieved, these rituals (karma) naturally get dropped as stated in Gita (Jnate karma na vidyate). The ritual (karma) is converted into practical service to Satguru (karma yoga). www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
  25. Yoga means fortunate achievement of God in human form The norms for achievement of God The word yoga denotes the lucky achievement of God in human form. There can be no better yoga than this. Yoga means fortunate achievement. Putra yoga means fortunate achievement of children. Dhana yoga means fortunate achievement of wealth. Yoga means the real achievement, which is the fortunate achievement of God in alive human form. Geeta is called as Yoga Shastra because it is the real achievement of God in alive human form called as Krishna (any contemporary human incarnation). Therefore, the norms for achievement of God are: 1) The development of practical sacrifice without aspiring anything in return and 2) the victory over ego and jealousy to recognize the contemporary human incarnation. The first is achieved during the path of karma and the second is achieved during the path of knowledge just before the diversion from south to north. www.universal-spirituality.org Universal Spirituality for World Peace
