Difficulty in accepting Divine Knowledge


Accepting a particular human being as the Lord is very very difficult. Therefore, knowledge of the Lord (Brahma Vidya) is very complicated. The reason for the complication is not in the subject. But the reason is only the egoism and jealousy of human beings. Due to such jealousy several enemies opposed Lord Krishna in His time. Lord Rama was not opposed as much because Rama behaved just like any other human being. He never exposed His divinity and so nobody was jealous. Jesus revealed His divinity and so He was killed. Shankara revealed His divinity and He was killed. Swami Dayananda spoke the truth of Vedas and so He was killed.


Even a temple is a model of the body of the human incarnation. The statue in the temple represents the Lord. Thus, a temple is a model for the body of the Lord (Deho Devalayah Proktah, Jeevo Devah Sanatanah). The outer compound wall of the temple is the gross body (Sthula Shareera). The inner temple is the inner subtle body (Sukshma Shareera). The inner most chamber of the temple (sanctum sanctorum) is the cause body (Karana Shareera). The statue represents the Parabrahma with ‘Maya’.


If you take the human body of an incarnation such as Rama or Krishna, the external human body is the outer compound wall. The inner subtle body is Lord Vishnu. The innermost causal body is Lord Datta. The innermost statue is ‘Saguna Brahman’ (Brahman associated with Maya). The Nirguna Brahman (Brahman without Maya) can never be even imagined.
