Messages Of Guru

  1. Hindu religion contains the principles  of all religions. For spiritual attainment  Hindu religion is more than enough.
  2. My religion is also Buddhism.  I am a Buddhist because I am an Adwaitin (believer in non-dualism).
  3. During Christ’s time love was a necessity. Christ, therefore, gave more prominence to love. One should have patience like Christ.
  4. Advice of Mohammed Nabi is also good. During Nabhi’s life feeling of brotherhood might have been a necessity. Islam is therefore giving more prominence to brotherhood.
  5. Do you know the meaning of  ‘Allah’? It means something that is different from this external universe. According to the standards of measurement and descriptions of this world, the entity expressed by this word  is non-existent.
  6. Wrong  knowledge gives rise to divisive tendency. This generates discriminatory and hierarchial feelings and leads to quarrels and confrontations. Such people can be reformed only by those who have immense spiritual strength and purity of the soul. Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Nabi succeeded in achieving this.
  7. God is pure consciousness or the embodiment of Absolute knowledge(‘chit purushan’) Who sees sans eyes, hears sans ears, feels sans skin, smells sans nose and tastes sans tongue.
  8. Our God is a divine ocean of enlightenment.  All that  perceive are the waves of that ocean.
  9. Those who are engaged  in the activities connected with God,  will always  be protected by God.
  10. The ritual of prayer should be performed by every heart, every home . Offer prayers every day without break. Sincere and dignified worship of God, is good.
  11. In my opinion it is good to inscribe inside the temples the words of truth, Dharma etc. to remind the people about these.
  12. The ways for developing  virtues like truth, Dharma etc should be informed to the people through  temples.
  13. There is not much   to learn from Vedanta. A wave is not different from the sea, similarly all that is perceived in this universe is not different from the Absolute truth. This knowledge is enough, but never forget it. Through daily practice, keep this knowledge alive and active within you .
  14. The essence of Vedanta  discloses the wisdom to have the sense of sacrifice, courage and power of discretion to  distinguish between truth and falsehood, which is essential for rendering beneficial service to the people.
  15. If one is aware that everything  perceived is none other than oneself(own self) then there is nothing to fear. That thought  or the experience is Adwaita.
  16. All human beings, without exception desire for happiness and contentment. All that is done materially or spiritually are meant for this objective.
  17. Atheism is the opinion of certain people. It never was the opinion of the entire human community.
  18. Denying rebirth may not be acceptable as per logic and experience.
  19. Human beings are of one specie(caste). That is my opinion. All human beings should live as belonging to same caste. Caste of all human beings are the same one. Difference in dress, language, country will not make any difference in caste.
  20. All should learn all the religions with equal interest. This will reveal that there is no essential difference in the main principles between different religions. This knowledge is the one religion propounded by me.
  21. All people attempt to follow any one religion, no one has two religions. In their perspective their religion is that one religion. There is no difference in opinion about this.
  22. Every one works for their own contentment. Religion inspires them to work for that. Therefore there is no doubt that everyone’s religion is the same.
  23. No religion says that the Gods are two or many. As the caste and religion are one, the God also is one.
  24. The difference amongst castes and religions should end. The people of West and East should  be able to come together.   Then the mankind will become one.
