14642How to get direction from the Lord?
- Jan 29, 2006Divine Message of His Holiness Shri Datta SwamiThe direction from God is always true. But then how to approach formless God? If you ask God, He will not reply from the sky. If you approach God in form, it must be human being only because only human form can reply. But in which human form God is present? God is present in a particular human form. Even some human beings in which, God is not present are also stating that they are God. The actual human incarnation some times is keeping silent, some times says that He is God and some times says that He is not God. Arjuna asked Krishna for direction. But Krishna may be or may not be God. Therefore, even though Krishna is preaching about the direction, Arjuna did not believe blindly. He asked questions at every stage and analysed the direction given by Krishna. Taking benefit of doubt, he considered Krishna as a human being only and discussed with Him at length and in depth. Even after seeing the vision of Viswaroopam, he continued the discussions for a long time. This means he did not give any value to vision.Even demons can give visions. Ravana showed a vision to Rama in which he appeared killing Sita. Rama believed and wept and wanted to stop the war. But Vibhishana told Him that the vision is false and is created by the demon Ravana. Therefore, one should not decide based on the visions seen by eyes. Saturn showed a vision to Jesus in which he showed the entire world offering to Jesus. One should not believe the mind with emotion. Sometimes the mind is also affected by the tricks of Saturn. When Rama went to catch the golden deer Sita heard the voice of Rama crying for help. Sita decided that Rama was in danger. But Lakshmana gave the argument that Rama can never be in danger. Finally Sita was proved wrong and Lakshmana was correct. Therefore, emotional mind will mislead but not the logical and analytical knowledge of the brain.Hanuman thought of committing suicide when Sita was not found in Lanka. But He analysed and dropped the idea. Therefore, logical and analytical knowledge and discussion can alone give the correct direction. In the beginning of Gita, Krishna told Dadami Buddhiyogam Te which means that only by logical analysis of brain, God can be achieved. After achieving God, logic must be closed and the heart must be opened. Sankra also told Jnanaadeva Tu Kaivalyam . which means that only through divine knowledge one can achieve God. After achieving God, devotion and service will come. One cannot achieve God through devotion, because unless you recognise the correct form of God, how can you devote yourself to that form? You must select one girl through analysis and fix her as wife and then only love her and serve her. How can you fix the best girl without analysis?At the time of Jesus priests were there who always think that old is gold and past is the last word. They hate the present. They have no logic. When they arrested Jesus, there were no proper discussions and logical analysis about His case. When there were no logical discussions, He was crucified based on simple emotional slogans. His death was not justified and therefore He rose and walked out. When the soldier was leaving finally, he pierced the stomach of Jesus with his weapon. Then blood came out. Blood will not come out from dead body. Jesus was alive and He was brought down by His disciples. Then He was kept in the cave. He knew the protection of His life. He walked into India and met the king Salivahana and talked with him. His conversation was recorded in Bhavishaya Purana of Vyasa. This scripture speaks about the future. Vyasa wrote this long back. The verse in scripture is Esa Putram Cha Mam Viddhi, Kumari Garbha Sambhavam, Mlechcha Dharmasya Vaktaram .., which means I am the son of the father of heaven. I was born to unmarried girl. I preached spirituality to Muslims. Thus spoke Jesus to Salivahana. He stayed in India till He attained the age of eighty-five years and died in Kashmir. You can find the buried tomb of Jesus there even today. On the tomb it is written Jesus in Hebrew language. Jesus disappeared from home at the age of 16 years. He returned at the age of 30 years. He was crucified in 32nd year. From 16th year He was in Himalayas in the association of several sages. He was a good Sanskrit scholar. He studied all the Hindu philosophy and this is the reason why the Christian and Hindu philosophies are almost similar in concepts. Krishna told that He is God. Jesus told that He and His Father are one and the same. Krishna told that He would come whenever there is necessity. Jesus told that He would come again. Krishna told that He is the only ultimate goal. Jesus told that one could attain God through Him only. All these are same concepts.There is difference between God in human form and human being posing as God. To differentiate both, analysis is essential like in the separation of original diamond from artificial diamond. Once you select the original diamond, no need of further analysis and you can kiss and love the diamond. Krishna was God in human form and Paundraka Vasudeva was human being posing as God. Krishna told Bhagavat Gita and the latter could not preach any knowledge. Except this difference, external dress and doing miracles were common in both.posted by: His servant
