God takes different roles to preach



Shankara is the incarnation of God and Advaita is the angle of God. God only can explain the angle of God. Ramanuja is the incarnation of Adishesha who is one of the closest circle of God called as a liberated soul. The angle of a liberated soul can be best explained by the liberated soul only. Madhva is the incarnation of Vayu and claims himself to be the son of Vayu and as younger brother of Hanuman and Bheema. Among Dharmaraja, Bheema and Arjuna, Bheema is the best servant with full blind faith. After recognizing the Lord through thorough analysis, the logic must be stopped before the Lord because God is beyond logic. Logic helps only to eliminate the false forms of God.


When the Lord decided the war, Bheema ( a devotee of God) simply jumped into the war. But Arjuna asked for lot explanations from the Lord. When the Lord asked Dharmaraja, to tell a lie, he refused. Bheema told the same lie on the order of the Lord, even though it did not click. Vayu is an angel and one of the five elements and is only a soul. The angle of the soul can be best explained by a soul only. Therefore, if you understand the background of the personalities of three Acharayas, the theories in their respective angles are well understood. The whole spiritual knowledge from the angle of God, from the angle of the liberated soul and from the angle of an ordinary soul are explained and thus there cannot be any contradiction between these three philosophies since the angles of explanation are quite different but mutually coexist in the same time. The unimaginable God is like the invisible management of a college, which is not seen in the campus.


The visible principal is only one and represents the invisible management as the final authority in the college. The management and the principal are quite different but the principal must be treated as the management for all practical purposes. Similarly, the human incarnation stands for the unimaginable God and such God is experienced through a specific human incarnation like Shankara or Krishna. There will be a few vice principals like vice principal for administration, vice principal for academic affairs and vice principal for student affairs. These three vice principals constitute the total composite of the post of the principal. The vice principal can stand as a partial representative for the principal. Similarly, the liberated soul like Adishesha (Shesha means part) stands for the God as a part of the composite, who is incarnated as Ramanuja. Ramanuja stated that the soul is a part of God. The vice principal is not the total principal actually. Thus the difference is maintained and at the same time the closeness as a part is also maintained. This is the case of a liberated soul, which stands between ordinary soul and God.


The third state of Madhva is a lecturer working in the college as an employee without any power except doing service. Similarly Madhva represented Vayu who is an ordinary soul as a servant of God and established the complete difference between the master and servant. Therefore, the angles of principal, vice principal and lecturer exist simultaneously in the same college with mutual correlation and there is no trace of any contradiction, since principal, vice-principals and lecturers coexist in the college with mutual cooperation without any contradictions. Then I do not understand why the followers of these three philosophies are quarrelling with each other? You have to decide about yourself whether you are the principal or vice principal or lecturer and you speak and behave as per the corresponding angle without any contradiction with the other posts simultaneously in the same college and in the same time. If you are God in human form, behave like Shankara. If you are a liberated soul behave like Ramanuja as a part of God. If you are an ordinary soul behave like Madhva as a sincere servant of God.
