Pranam Swamiji,In this birth I don’t think I am able to control my indriyas with budhi because mind is over powering budhi due to past accumulated vasanas. Even if in the next birth if I am a human being, animal or bird I don’t think I am able to control myself. So If anyone ask what you want to become next birth I will suggest to become a tree through which I wish to reach paramatma because it has no indriyas and meditate all life, giving everything to others by taking nothing. Swamiji is there any sense for my absolute dreams?Posted by P RAJENDRAN NAIR, PUNE on March 20, 2018
If you are sure you will live off all your accumulated negative Vasanas in this life it does not matter what you become in next life. Otherwise, human birth is a blessing as it gives you the discriminatory intelligence to improve your karmic burden and reach liberation easily. Hari Om.
Your suggestion will be considered. Hari Om.
Pranamam Swamiji, A confusion arises when i read ur answers that God is not responsible for what karmas we are doing..If we do good or bad the same will effect in return then how about Ramadasu who was a devotee of Lord Rama got Moksha…The way he was punished for building a Temple.He prayed Lord Rama and atlast Rama helped him and released..Posted by Ram on March 20, 2018
Rama, Krishna and many divine souls have lived on earth and still live among us. They are able to uplift and help others in their spiritual pursuits in various ways. Several stories are told to make us understand this tawtam. However, ultimately each person is responsible for his spiritual development.
Dear swamiji അങ്ങയുടെ ഭാഗവതം ക്ലാസ്സിന്റെ വിഡിയോകൾ കാണുന്നുണ്ട്. വളരെ ഉപകാരപ്രദമായ കാര്യങ്ങൾ പറഞ്ഞു തരുന്നതിൽ നന്ദി. ആത്മാവും മനസും എനിക്ക് കൺഫ്യൂഷനാകുന്നു. ആത്മാവെന്നാൽ സർവ്വ ചരാചരങ്ങളിലുമുള്ള ചൈതന്യമാണ്. ഫിസിക്സ് പ്രകാരം എനർജി. മനസിനെ നിലനിർത്തുന്നത് ആത്മാവാണ്. മരണപ്പെടുമ്പോൾ ആത്മാവ് ബ്രഹ്മത്തിൽ ലയിക്കുന്നു. അപ്പോൾ മനസ് എന്താകും അതൊരു എനർജി അല്ലല്ലോ. രണ്ടും വേറെയായിട്ടാണ് സ്വാമിജി പറയുമ്പോൾ എനിക്ക് തോന്നിപ്പോകുന്നത്. അറിവില്ലായ്മ കൊണ്ടാണ്.ഒന്ന് ക്ലിയർ ആക്കി തരാമോ.Posted by പ്രവി on March 20, 2018
Mind is just 4 types of thoughts- emotions, intellect, ego and memory. Hence it is energy as well. These thoughts arise from the consciousness called Jeevathma. When you die the Jeevathma (mind and casual body) moves from one body to the next. Once your thoughts become subtle, divine and liberated,
Namaste Guruji, There are many contradictions stated in Bhagwat Gita..At one point of time Sri Krishna says one will get what one desires. At another time point he says one will get what one deserves .Then he says you get what you believe. Then he quotes just perform your duty without the attachment to the fruits of the result. My question is how does one get what one desires when it is said one gets only what one deserves..Thank you..Posted by Vidya on March 20, 2018
The whole purpose of Gita is to teach you how to live in a way that what you desire, what you deserve, what you work for, all becomes the same or at least complimentary. So there is no contradiction. Contradictions are felt now because you are not able to manage
Namaste swami ji, Whenever my mind is turning towards spiritual matters, my mind just gives most negative thoughts ever and it is more and more as I start reading more and more spiritual books Please help me out swami really feeling somewhat discouraged when experiencing those….Namaskaram swamiPosted by Raghuraman A on March 20, 2018
I don’t really understand what you mean by negative thoughts. Any thought can become negative it you attach to it. Thoughts should come and go in your mind like waves comes and go on the surface of an ocean without affecting the depths of the mind. That is the kind
Temples are constructed in Agama sastram paying attention to the point of maximum magnetic power in the given area. That point is the moolasthanam or the point of concentrated magnetic force. However, once the Temple is consecrated the ethereal energy field is maintained around the deity and sanctum sanctorum with
Namaskaram Swamiji, I had been married since 12 years and we were along with kids settled in Gulf. Now in India. I resigned my job. Looking out for a job now. Bit since 12 years our life was not at all stable. My wife’s positives are she is very goos in households like doing all works, taking care of children, going to markets, etc. But the problem is she never listens to, obeys me or give any consideration to what i say which would be helpful for the family on a long time basis like don’t be double standards (like if i do something for her on her request she is ok then but while making allegations against me in front of her people which is always does, she says I am treating her like a kid, etc, etc, etc); don’t gossip any family secrets or issues to any family members, relatives or friends; Take collective decisions and take the responsibility even its a wrong one. I have advised her a lot regarding a family life or post marriage life etc….Even her parents and people believe and support her blindly and many times they have insulted me, abused me and asked me to get out of the house…Recently with a fabricated or for an unimaginable scene, they all went for divorce, (saying I always beat her 24/7 which is not right…Yes I had done it few times, when she has insulted me or my people with her utter nonsense talks like saying me a drunkard in front of her people or completely misunderstanding my family during a few instance and using abusive words) but I thought not to and went for counsellor and made them also attend but still the same more or less…What should I do… ? How should I lead a life ? Kindly advice me in detail.Posted by SK on March 20, 2018
You feel your wife is not listening, not taking your advice, insulting you and even ready to separate from you. You have beaten her up and you feel it is for genuine reasons. You have no authority to physically abuse your wife. Marriage is not about correcting the other person
swamiji who controls our mind. why some people and children despite of good advice also they prefer to go in wrong way,but someone will listen to the advice and prosper in life.as your advise if god resides in our heart why god doesn’t prevent them from wrong deedsthank youPosted by Subhasree on March 20, 2018
Every mind is a part of the Divine mind (pure consciousness or Paramathma). But our minds are contaminated by the influences of our karma Vasanas to varying degrees like a mirror with dust on it. For the inherent Divinity to express and shine, we have to wash off the dust
Dear Swamiji, I lost my mother. Before that she told she wanted to keep Bagavtha saptham at our home. Someday I want to fulfill that wish for her. We are a middle class family. 1) Is it okay to keep Bagavatha Sapthamham at home? 2)How many days we need to reserve for that? 3) What all the things I need to get ready? My mother wanted to read the shloka while Sapthaham. I would like to do it. 4) Is it allowed? 5) Which book I need to prepare? (I have heard Bagavatha Saptham but not read).Posted by Krishna on March 12, 2018
You can conduct Sapthaham anywhere. It is done over 7 days. Please contact a suitable Acharya and they will guide you on the necessary arrangements. You can read Moolam Bhagavatham and prepare yourself. Hari Om.
