More development of Science and more harm to environment....

O Learned and Devoted Servants of God, [June 26, 2012] The development of any limb of a human being is desirable as it grows from the childhood onwards. But, the growth of any limb should be within the proper limits. The growth of the finger should not be equal to the growth of the leg. Similarly, the development of science should not cross the proper limits so that there is no harm to the global environment and the health of humanity. In ancient India, sages also developed sciences. But, the sages were strong devotees of God and hence, the development of the research in science and technology did not cross the limits of danger by the grace of God.

For example, let us take the ancient system of herbal medicines (Ayurveda). All these medicines were effective in controlling the corresponding diseases. At the same time, there was no side reaction to lead to another disease and no medicine damaged the tissue cells. The medicines were active in developing the resistance of the body to disease. Almost, no medicine was directly involved in attacking the disease. Today, the modern medicines are directly involved in attacking the disease and as a result, the resistance of the body decreases and the tissue cells get damaged by the negative effects of the medicines. What is the reason for this difference? The research in medical science in ancient India was under the supervision of God so that unwarranted sides were blocked. Today, the scientists develop the research in very fast way without the supervision of God. The scientists neglect God and slowly become the atheists, who negate God. Negligence in course of time becomes negation. Therefore, the development of science in the directions of safety of the humanity is very important. My criticism, about the dangerous directions of the growth of science and technology, should not lead to the conclusion that I am against the development of science and technology. I am a scientist, who worked in the Institution of Technology throughout My life period.

In fact, the knowledge of science was given by God (Vedaah shaastraani vijnanam etat sravam janaardanaat…). The knowledge of science and technology was used in ancient India for earning livelihood in various professions. The growth of science was limited so that the natural balance was not disturbed. For example, there were no synthetic chemical fertilizers. Only natural fertilizers like cow dung, etc. were used. The knowledge that the crop requires fertilizer was known, but, too much research leading to the manufacture of chemicals acting as fertilizers was not there. There was no danger to health due to natural fertilizers. But, there is a lot of danger to health due to the toxins entering the body from the present fertilizers. Therefore, in those days, research in science never developed in the harmful direction due to the grace of God. Today, a scientist does not like the name of God thinking that God is unaware of science! When you neglect God, He keeps silent about the research in science without any interference. As a result, science developed in all the ways without any supernatural control so that the ecological balance is disturbed.
The development of industries involving various applications of energy lead to the global warming. Scientists predict the global destruction, if the warming results in the increase of two degrees more. The applications of energy and the development of scientific research in various directions resulted in the discovery of several artificial amenities. These amenities have been stamped with the higher status of life. To maintain these amenities, more and more money is needed. To earn more and more money, unlawful ways are invented, which formulate the network of corruption. As of result of corruption, the poor becomes poorer and the rich becomes richer. As a result of this increase in the gap, social revolutions have come and terrorism is one of those.  

Sin is the basis of corruption and this spoils even the life after death in the upper worlds. The controlled growth of science in ancient India developed very few amenities only, which could be available to everyone even with little money. Hence, the very basis of corruption was absent in those days. Today, scientists find that these amenities are responsible for the environmental pollution, leading to global destruction. Therefore, all the steps of this analysis end in the uncontrolled growth of science and technology.
The growth of science leads to negligence of God, which is the basis for doing the sin without fear. In ancient India, very little development of science and technology was present, creating minimum number of amenities, which could be attained by everyone easily. There is no need of much argument in this topic because there is a clear practical resultant difference between the people of ancient times and the people of modern times that the ancient people lived with more longevity, with better physique and more mental peace and the exact contrast is seen in the modern people. The actual aim of science blessed by God was only to analyze the creation and realize that creator is beyond all this creation. Every item in this creation, including awareness was subjected to scientific analysis to arrive at the conclusion that no created item is the creator (neti neti… Veda). By this, it became easy to recognize that God was unimaginable. The faith in the existence of the unimaginable power, the God, was the basis of the establishment of the golden society without corruption and global destruction. Major portion of scientific analysis was only to understand that God is beyond this imaginable creation, rewarding the good deeds and punishing the bad deeds done by any human being in this society through His unimaginable power since God by Himself is unimaginable.

Duty of the Government:
 [Taken from Discourses of Shri Datta Swami] O Learned and Devoted Servants of God, [June 10, 2012] The modern world thinks that the ancient people have wasted lot of time in the analysis about the unimaginable God. This is the first foolishness because these people do not know that the realization of the existence of God in the mind of a citizen is directly linked to the resistance towards crime and corruption that establish the peaceful social balance. The concept of God is the tremendous basis of the self control of every human being to reject crime and corruption in the society. Without this inbuilt realization in the human being, thousands of police stations, courts and lokpals become totally waste since all these institutions are filled with the human beings only and not with the angels from heaven. Realizing this wonderful system of control, helping the balance of the society, kings have concentrated totally on the propagation of spiritual knowledge in temples, which were the present universities of highest learning.

The second foolishness of the modern people is to think that the ancient scholars were unable to investigate towards the development of science and technology. The ancient sages know all these sciences and technologies to such extent, which is not reached by scientists even today. In such case, what is the reason for their silence in propagating this scientific knowledge? The only answer is the fear of global destruction, finally resulting due to environmental pollution and also the other reason is that development of amenities will spoil the health of the human beings, leading to several physical and mental diseases. If one studies the subject of environmental science, all the scientific developments result in the pollution, finally leading to global destruction. The scientific development resulted in the discovery of several machines and techniques, which made the human beings lazy without hard work. The ancient women ground the paddy grains to prepare rice and flour from rice, but, today the electrical grinders do all this work. The ancient women washed the household vessels and clothes regularly. The present lazy women due to the machines do not do these works and are appointing servants. All these modern developments make the women to become fatty and finally become the victims of several diseases. The food grains were multiplied to a large extent due to application of chemical manures, which enter the human body as toxins leading to several incurable diseases. The present farmers have become ambitious to earn more and more for more and more amenities. They feel that the increase in amenities is a rise in their standards of life. They feel that their ancestors were ignorant and lived simple life with hard work, leading to low standards of life. They do not know that their ancestors were very wise and the present mentalities only travel from health to illness. These people think that they are wise and their ancestors were ignorant. Actually it is reverse.

The Veda says that you should not take food more than twice in 24 hours. If you take food more than twice, you should work like the animal (dvirahnaah manushyaah trirahnaah pashavah… Veda). But, you are taking the food three times and not working like the bull in agriculture. Due to this, the sugar levels rise in the blood leading to several calamities of the health. When you become rich, you like to eat oily foods and sweets, which are fast vehicles to death. Poverty controls all the desires and gives best health and best happiness in the life. Hence, Shankara told that the poor man is the most fortunate fellow (Kaupeenavantah khalu bhagyavantah). If you realize this wonderful truth, your ambition to become more and more rich even through corruption and crime disappears. Such realization comes only through spiritual knowledge and not through the study of science and management of business administration. Hence, the education system must be thoroughly rejuvenated to fill more with spiritual knowledge and less with materialistic line of learning. If this is done by the Government, there need not be any effort to bring balance in the society with peace and happiness in the humanity.

Ancient spiritual education system can only remove corruption, Not the LOKPAL

O Learned and Devoted Servants of God, [June 05, 2012, Divine message of Shri Datta Swami] In ancient times, the total education was concentrated on the establishment of the existence of God, heaven and hell. If justice is followed, God rewards you with heaven and if injustice is done, God punishes you in the hell. If you say that God exists, people may not believe and may commit sins by which the balance of the society gets disturbed. The existence of God is to be proved through very deep logical analysis and discussions. All the seminars and conferences in ancient India ran on single subject, which is about the existence and nature of God. Today, people think that the ancient scholars in India wasted lot of time on this useless subject. Today, scholars spend lot of time on seminars and debates dealing with developments of new materials, machines and applications of energy. In fact, the ancient scholars were highly wise and the modern scholars are highly foolish. The results of the present research in Science are leading to the improvement of several amenities of the humanity. But, these amenities are now realized to be the ways of destruction of the environment leading to global calamity in a very short period of time. Our ancient scholars did not encourage such research in science since the advanced knowledge of energy and materials will lead to the destruction of humanity. Moreover, they concentrated on the logical understanding of the existence of God so that the resulting balanced society without corruption and chaos will give immense happiness to the life of the humanity. We now realize that the ancient materials and technologies were far better for health and environmental balance of the world. Added to this happiness, a strong fear for God and hell were well established in the mind of every human being through long period of spiritual education.

Little knowledge of materials and technologies was sufficient for the happiness of humanity and to maintain the ecological balance. This aspect is at the external physical level. Regarding the internal intellectual level, intensified realization resulted in every human being regarding the existence of God. After a long period of learning, the human being came out of the ancient university with thorough realization of the existence of God, hell and heaven so that in the practical life, the human being perfectly followed the justice rejecting the injustice at any cost. People did not know even the word ‘corruption’ because everybody was afraid of God and hell. Today, after a long period of learning, the person coming out of the modern university is not at all in touch with the subject of God. Moreover, the person is well versed in the technologies of energy and materials and is dedicating the total life for increasing amenities, which ultimately lead to environmental pollution and global destruction. The present human being is well versed in the concepts of profit and loss and is a master of business administration. Everybody wants to improve the personal amenities even through corruption. Corruption has become a spontaneous global phenomenon. Metals undergo corrosion and the human beings undergo the process of corruption. The government has become corrupt. The government officials are corrupt. Even the judiciary system has become corrupt. In such atmosphere of powerful corruption and corrupt human beings, can you expect a system like lokpal to work perfectly to control the corruption? When all the human beings are corrupt, the members of the lokpal also become corrupt. You cannot bring the angels from heaven to appoint them as members of lokpal. After sometime, you will have to bring another control in the system to control the lokpals! There will be no end to this and the desired aim can never be fulfilled.

Only Solution for Present Day Corruption

The only solution for this is to revert back to the ancient system and concentrate on spiritual education. Today, the government does not spend a single rupee on the propagation of spiritual education. Only a few persons in private and personal sector like saints are taking interest in propagating the spiritual education. Atleast, the huge funds of very important temples like Tirupati should be spent on the propagation of spiritual education. You are starting colleges and universities with the funds of such temple, in which again the materialistic education is propagated. Kings used to construct huge temples and spend lot of money on temples. In fact, these temples were the universities in which learned professors of the spiritual education propagated the spiritual knowledge in the humanity. Lot of encouragement was given by kings to this spiritual knowledge, which controls crime and corruption from the basic level itself. Even if you spend 1/10th of what you spend on the control of crime and corruption for the sake of the propagation of spiritual knowledge, the crime and corruption will disappear from the root itself. The government should open its eyes on this basic issue and reform the education system in the light of this concept. The negligence of the present blind government on spiritual education is the main reason for the present crime and corruption in the society. The present system of education stressing mainly on science and technology for improving the amenities of humanity is the reason for the environmental pollution and the future untimely global destruction. If you revert back to the ancient education system, every human being will come out as a citizen with in-built aversion to corruption and crime. Such ancient education, concentrated on God, will also reduce the over attachment to amenities and this will lead to ecological balance and global safety.

For the sake of control of crime and corruption, the existence of God need not be accepted. Such acceptance will be based on falsehood and such realization is not real. Moreover, the result of such false realization will not be true also. It means that the control of crime and corruption cannot be achieved by forcing you to accept the existence of God for the sake of control of corruption and crime. The realization of existence of God should be independent and should not be for any purpose. Whether the crime and corruption are controlled or not, the existence of God should be realized on its own merit and truth. What I mean to say is that the ancient scholars did not create the concept of God for the sake of control of crime and corruption to achieve the balance of society. The existence of God was realized as the independent concept on the credit of its own merit.

The ancient education system is composed of several schools like logic (Tarka), grammer (Vyakaranam), analysis of sacred scriptures (Mimmamsa), etc. and all the schools aimed at the subject of God (philosophy) only. The student, after realizing the existence of God with the help of all the schools of education (Shaastras), comes out as a citizen fearing for crime and corruption. Therefore, the existence of God is primary basis and the control of corruption and crime is the secondary consequence. Hence, it is wrong, as some people say, that the concept of God by itself is not true, but, should be respected and maintained for the sake of control of crime and corruption. In such a way, the crime and corruption can never be controlled because one knows that the basic concept is only created story for control in crime and corruption.

Most Deserving Person is Scholar of Divine Knowledge
O Learned and Devoted Servants of God, [June 02, 2012 2nd Message] Whenever you want to do some donation, there are two important aspects, which should be well understood so that you can get good fruit for your good sacrifice. The first aspect is to detect the most deserving receiver and the second aspect is about the nature of your donation. What should be donated and to whom it should be donated are the two important enquiries. The Veda gives answers for these two enquiries. The Veda says that the most deserving person should be the scholar of divine knowledge, who shall not aspire anything from you (shrotriyasyachaakaama hatasya…). The concept behind this is that the scholar of the divine knowledge will have full faith in God and hence, does not aspire anything from any human being. The only ultimate donor is God and all the human beings here are His beggars only. A beggar need not aspire anything from another beggar. He can beg directly the ultimate donor from whom all the other beggars are benefited. Such a person is a real devotee and the most deserving for your donation. Kuchela did not beg and always remembered God only. Hence, Kuchela was the most deserving person for donation. Hence, Krishna donated the maximum to Kuchela. Krishna felt that the only real donation done by Him in His entire life was that only. Such a deserving person is very rare.

Today, the priests are fixing the rates of the donation in the beginning itself! Hence, they are the most undeserving for the donation. When you want to perform a ritual, the priest should come without aspiring anything from you. After all, the ritual is the worship of God only. This can be understood if you examine the meanings of the Vedic prayers recited in the ritual. The priest himself does not know the meaning of the prayers recited by him in the ritual! The priest should thank you for inviting him to the ritual because it is an opportunity created by you to participate in the worship of God. If the priests know the meanings of the Vedic prayers, the priest will have full faith in God that God will take care of all his needs. Therefore, the priest should not beg another beggar. He should accept whatever you donate. Certainly, you will donate your maximum for such deserving priest. If you donate to undeserving person, it will bring punishment to you since it is a sin. The present Hindu system should be totally transformed in the light of this truth.

 Regarding the nature of the donation, it should be always money and not any other material you desire. Donation should be based on the need of the receiver and not your desire. Money is the source of all materials. Hence, money will serve all the present and future needs of the priest and you will get the good fruit since you are helping the priest in providing the needs. You have given food to a deserving priest. You have purchased some clothes or some other material by spending say hundred rupees and you are donating the clothes to the priest after his meals. The priest may be having sufficient number of clothes in his house. Tomorrow, he may be in need of some food or some medicine etc. Now, he is selling the clothes donated by you for half rate to a local businessman. Your donation to the priest is only fifty rupees and not hundred rupees. You are getting half of the good fruit only though your donation is full. Therefore, it is better to donate hundred rupees to the priest instead of the clothes. Hence, the Veda says that the nature of the donation should be money (dhanena tyagenaikena…). Shiridi Saibaba used to collect money only and used to donate that money to the devotees.

The Guru Dakshnna means the donation in the form of money to be offered to your divine preacher. In every sacrifice (yajna), dakshna is the essence. Dakshina means the donation in the form of money. When Koutsa pressed his preacher for [accepting] the donation, his preacher, the sage called Varatantu, asked dakshina in the form of money only as fourteen crores for the fourteen subjects preached by him. If the receiver is a scholar, he will not misuse the money given by you. The ignorant person may misuse the money for some bad habits and hence, in such case, it is better to donate useful material to him. If you give money to a beggar, he may misuse it for some bad habits. Donate food to him and force him to eat it in your presence. The reason is that, even the food is sold. While donating the food to a hungry person, do not apply the above logic that he is aspiring [money] from you. It is an exceptional context since you are saving the life of a hungry person and it is the situation of emergency.
