      The generation and propagation of the divine knowledge is not a
      waste. Certainly, all will not change. A few will partially change.
      One or two in this minority will change completely (ManushyanamÂ…
      Gita). Majority remains as it is. They are always concentrating on
      the worldly bonds only. Their goal is money, family, comforts, fame
      etc., only. At the maximum they may attend some work shops to get
      relief from the stress because they are tired with the stress by the
      problems to attain their goals. For them work is worship. Their
      ultimate and utmost spiritual effort is only the participation in a
      work shop on stress relief so that they can be reactivated for fresh
      efforts to achieve the worldly goals by improving their professional
      skills. It is just a commercial advertisement!

      The spiritual preachers also changed according to the public because
      the tendency of today is that the ruler should go according to the
      needs of public in democracy. A king may do like that who is a
      politician aspiring for position, power and wealth. But a spiritual
      preacher should not come down to such level. He should guide the
      people to the right path without any compromise of the truth. The
      people should follow the knowledge. But today the knowledge is
      following people. The people need only fresh strength in the worldly
      work. The spiritual preacher limited himself to that particular
      lowest level only which is needed for the public. All the other
      higher levels are just mentioned as a formality. Here the spiritual
      preacher should impress on the life after death. He should preach
      about the unimaginable stress which is to be faced by the people
      after death in the hell. Islam and Christianity speak about the
      permanent hell. There is only one enquiry at the end of this only
      one human life. After that enquiry, either permanent place in the
      abode of God or permanent hell will be the result of the divine
      judgment. Such concept is absolutely correct and is also universal.

      The law of God is one and the same in any religion. God uses His
      special power in the case of exceptionally deserving devotees to
      grant the human rebirth and this cannot be generalized. In Hinduism
      this exceptional facility is extended to every human being and this
      caused a careless lenient view about the spiritual effort to
      concentrate on God. The president of the country can cancel the
      death punishment in the case of a deserving candidate using his
      special power. If this is generalized and if every human being is
      granted this facility, there is no fear for any one to do a murder!
      Due to this reason only, we can find most of the Christians and
      Muslims in Churches and Mosques to worship God and they are not
      found in the stress relief-work shops. We can find mainly Hindus in
      these work shops. Hindus feel that a number of chances of human
      birth will be available in future and going to hell is only a
      temporary visit. One must note an important point here. By
      concentrating on God through devotion, you will get the stress
      relief also, which is included in the devotion. Then why to spend
      time for mere stress relief from these temporary worldly problems?
      In the school all the subjects are taught. If you go to a single
      teacher, you can learn one subject only. Which is better? School or
      Tuition teacher?

      By the divine knowledge and devotion, you are getting stress relief
      in this world as well as in the upper world. In the workshop you can
      get stress relief from the problems in this world only. I am not
      criticizing these work shops because I am not in the competition
      with those preachers for fame or wealth. I am also not jealous with
      those preachers for their fame. I am only pained by the fate of the
      followers and those preachers also in the future. The Veda says that
      blind lead blind and fall in the well (AndhenaivaÂ…). Some preachers
      say that they know the truth, but they are doing like this for
      initial attraction. But the initial attraction is always continuing
      through out the human life. What is the difference between such work
      shops and cinema theaters, since both give stress relief? What is
      the difference between these work shops and hospitals since both
      give relief from illness?
