Homogenity - Prayers & Actions
- Divine Message of His Holiness Shri Datta SwamiWhenever, you pray the Lord, be careful about the meaning of the prayer. You must utter that only, which you can really practice. In the prayer you say that the Lord is everything for you. You cannot practice this. You cannot prove this as long as the Lord remains formless or in the energetic form or as the statue. But when the Lord comes in the human form and asks you to sacrifice a little for His sake, you will go back. For this inconvenience only you deny the human form. You like the statue or formless aspect of or energetic form of God because they cannot ask you for any proof of your prayer. You want that God should believe your prayer and should blindly sanction whatever you ask. You think that God is innocent and should believe whatever you say without any practical proof or test. This is the main reason for the denial of human form of God. When you offer the food to the Lord, the formless God or the energetic form or the statue will not take even a single particle of your offered food. But if you offer the same food to the human form, you will not get back a single particle to eat. This is the reason for denying the human form of the Lord. First you must be sure of the extent of value you give to God. Then, you must be sure of the extent of your faith when you meet the human incarnation and in recognizing Him as the Lord. If you have full value for the Lord and if you recognize the human incarnation, the full value to God must be proved practically in the case of that human incarnation. If you have full value for God but do not recognize the human incarnation, then there is no opportunity for you to prove your full faith to God. In such case your full value to God is false and you are Hippocratic. Jesus gave full value to God and sacrificed His life for the sake of God. In the end He told the Lord that His will should be done. When He accepted the will of God to be done, He did not feel adversely in the crucification. Since the crucification was the will of the Lord He followed it sincerely because He told that His will must be done. Therefore, whatever is told must be practiced. During crucification He never asked the Lord to protect Him and stop the crucification. If He had asked for it, it would have been stopped immediately by the miraculous power of the God. Therefore, unless you have the determination of practice you should not utter any thing before the Lord. Once you utter you must follow it at least in the case of the Lord.Most of our prayers are lies only and even one percent cannot be practiced. By doing such false prayers one invokes the anger of the Lord only and not the grace of the Lord. Whatever value you have for the God should be proved in practice and such value only should be mentioned in your words while praying the Lord. Whatever, little love you have for God, mention that much only in words. The God will not be displeased for your little love. In fact He is more pleased because you are telling truth before Him. There are some people who call every greater human being as the Lord. The purpose of such usage is only to have some benefit from that greater human being. Thus, the word Lord has become means to achieve the selfish ends in the hands of clever materialistic people. The false human incarnations may be trapped by such clever people. But the real human incarnation will get reversed.People are always under the illusion of majority. People think that whatever is done by the majority is always good. They expect their son to study, earn a job, marry and have children. The sons of majority are doing like this. Therefore, people think that this is the good path. Therefore, they expect their sons also to follow the same good path. If any son tries to deviate from this path the parents are worried. Ofcourse the deviation from this path may be towards positive or negative side. If one is leaving this earth, he may fly to the sky or may fall into the downward pit called Patala. Both are deviations. Similarly, if the son deviates from this normal path and becomes a lazy fellow and is trapped by bad habits the deviation is negative. In such case the son should be forced to the normal path. He should be brought to the ground from the pit. But if the son deviates from the normal path and is turned towards God by becoming a monk, the parents should encourage and appreciate. If somebody is leaving the ground and is flying to the sky, it should be appreciated. Therefore, the negative deviation should be condemned and the positive deviation should be appreciated. The Scriptures say that if a couple is not having a son, they will go to the hell called Put (Punnama Naraka). Does this mean that Sankara, Rama Krishna Parahamsa etc., who did not have sons have gone to the hell? Does this mean the demons who had sons have not gone to the hell? This statement of the scripture has to be understood with reference to the negative deviation. This means that one should marry and get a son by leading a disciplined regular family life and one should not be unmarried and should not be trapped by bad habits like moving with prostitutes. Thus, with reference to this negative deviation only the normal path is appreciated. This means that you should be on the ground and should not fall into the pit. This does not mean that you should be on the ground and should not fly to the sky. This is not with reference to the positive deviation. Therefore, the production of a son is appreciated with reference to a debatcherous life. But it should not be appreciated with reference to the life of a monk. Earning one rupee is appreciated with reference to the loss of money. But it need be appreciated with reference to earning 100 rupees.The concept of majority is capturing the minds of even spiritual people. The spiritual preacher is encouraged to deliver the knowledge if a large gathering appears. When Krishna preached Gita there were lakhs of soldiers there. But He preached Gita only to Arjuna because he was the only deserving devotee. If any spiritual preacher is in the place of Krishna, he would have requested for a mike so that he can preach Gita to all the people in the war!! Datta is surrounded only by very few deserving disciples like Pingala Naga, Alarka, Parasurama, Skanda etc., Sankara preached the commentary only to the four deserving disciples. A Professor is surrounded by a very few research scholars engaged in discussions. If you visit a schoolteacher he is surrounded by a hundred children who are not listening anything.posted by: His servant
