Devotee: Who is the Best Preacher?

Reply of Swamiji:

One should be very careful in taking spiritual knowledge (Jnanam) from the preacher and should be equally careful in giving money to a poor fellow. You should analyze the preacher and also the poor fellow. If the preacher is not correct, the wrong spiritual knowledge will destroy the soul forever. If the poor fellow has bad qualities, your donation will bring you sin. Therefore, getting Jnanam (spiritual knowledge) and giving Danam (donating money) are to be done carefully; only after deep analysis. Otherwise, instead of getting good results, bad results are inevitable.

God in human form is to be recognized through the spiritual knowledge preached by Him and not through His miracles. The main project of God to come to the earth is only to guide souls to the correct spiritual path, which leads the souls to their permanent welfare. Therefore, the Veda says that the real identity mark of God is the special spiritual knowledge (Prajnanam Brahma). Who will decide that the knowledge preached by a preacher is the best? Your own inner conscience is the real judge to give the certificate for the knowledge of the preacher (Pramanam antahkarana pravruttayah).

Whatever is the best for your level, should be best for you. The ultimate or the absolute best is not relevant to you. Therefore, the certificate given by others is not relevant to you since the levels of others differ from your level. The preacher gives the spiritual knowledge to souls in different levels according to their corresponding levels.

If you are in the highest level and if your conscience is satisfied, such spiritual knowledge is the ultimate and the preacher of that knowledge is the human incarnation of God. The highest preacher can give lower levels of knowledge also but the lower preacher cannot give the higher levels of knowledge. But if your level is low, the highest preacher is of no use to you and you can treat the preacher of your level as the highest. Even if you catch the highest preacher, He will anyway give you knowledge corresponding to your level.

The advantage with the highest preacher is that you need not change the preacher as you rise in your level. The highest preacher is only God in human form. You must filter Him not only from ordinary human beings but also from the other false human incarnations. The most important point is that you must identify your contemporary human incarnation, who alone can clarify all your doubts. Otherwise, you can only follow the text of the past human incarnation and only your other classmates will clarify your doubts. Then, you will certainly be confused further.

The absolute knowledge of Absolute God is impossible because Absolute God is unimaginable. Absolute God comes in human form to give you the experience of His existence, in absence of which, you may deny the very existence of Absolute God and may become an atheist (Astityeva"Veda). The identification of the human form in which Absolute God exists is by the knowledge of God (Brahma Jnanam or Brahma Vidya).

Identity mark to recognize human incarnation of God ... (Message of Shri Datta Swami)

Real characteristic properties of the Lord as declared by Veda are the Special Knowledge (Prajnana), the Love (Rasa or Prema) & Bliss (Ananda). Veda also says that these three characteristics must be experienced by others if the possessor is having really those characteristics.

The characteristic property of the fire is heat. Any person, who is near fire, should experience heat and then only we can say that fire is hot. Similarly, Lord in human form must make others to experience the Jnana, Prema and Ananda. Veda says "Esha Hyeva Anandayati", which means that God creates Bliss in the hearts of others. Lord should not be recognized merely by miracles because even demons performed these miracles. Miracles are only associated property like jewels.

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
