श्लोकार्धेन प्रवक्ष्यामि. यदुक्तं ग्रंथकोटिभिः
परोपकारः पुण्याय पापाय परपीदनम् ।
PERSON’S OWN FEELING.
ABOUT THE ONE IF ANY.
AND, PERSON NAMES THAT AS THY.
WE DO NOT KNOW THY.
BUT, EACH LIVING BEING HAS NAMED THY.
EACH CULTURE- Faith CALLS THY WITH THE NAME.
ONE WHO IS SELF REALIZES (SOUL) DOES NOT NAME THY, YET ENJOY THY MENIFESTATION.
LOOK MR. GOYANKAJI AND HIS WORK, KNOWN AS “VIPASYANA” KNOWN IN EAST AND PRACTICE BY BUDDIST.
ADI SHANKARACHARYA AND MANY KNOWN GREAT THINKERS LIVED WITH ADVETYA AND DWETYA VADA.
LET US TRY IN OUR LIFE TO FIND THE TRUTH AND ABSOLUTE TRUTH.
LET US UNDERSTAND SOUL AND SUPRIME SOUL.
LET US UNDERSTAND SPIRIT AND WHERE WE CAN FIND IN US.
This sounds all right from the realm of faith. But when masses adopt simple faith, quitting reasoning, it gives birth to blind faith and forcing of one’s view on others. And blind faith has generated maximum no. of evils and miseries for mankind.
e.g. in this one. If somebody says- ‘ Krishna is the only Saviour and He only knows absolute trouth’ ; immediately christians wil say ‘No. Jesus.’ and muslims – “No. Mohommad.’ This is how religious kingdoms get established. Then it degenerates into pure and simple Politics and power game. The rich, the wealthy, the powerful and the Pundits have exploited the love and faith instincts of ordinary people like you and me.
The first need for anybody is education, satisfying basic needs and rational thinking. Faith , if founded on these basic paramaters can only be tolearant for other’s thinking.
Frankly, no religious leader is prepared to say this, as it is counter productive for his/ her vested interests.
I would love to discuss these issues with you, as much as I like humour and literature.
When our senses are imperfect, and we are thus prone to illusion, and we make many mistakes, and in a cheating mentality stubbornly claim to be perfect, how can we know anything for certain? We can’t. Are we destined then to remain in the illusory realm of relativity in which everyone takes their own subjective opinion as the so-called truth?
There is a way out of this quagmire. We can understand that Absolute Truth does exist because it is logically impossible to assert the non-existence of Absolute Truth. So how one who is captured by illusion can realize the Absolute Truth? He cannot do so on his own power. But by the power of the Absolute Truth it is possible to realize the Absolute Truth.
In the Bhagavad-gita it is clearly revealed that Krishna is the Absolute Truth:
param brahma param dhama
pavitram paramam bhavan
purusam sasvatam divyam
adi-devam ajam vibhum
ahus tvam rsayah sarve
devarsir naradas tatha
asito devalo vyasah
svayam caiva bravisi me
“Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the ultimate abode, the purest, the Absolute Truth. You are the eternal, transcendental, original person, the unborn, the greatest. All the great sages such as Narada, Asita, Devala and Vyasa confirm this truth about You, and now You Yourself are declaring it to me.”
