Time and Matter

Time and Matter

Science in the Vedic Scriptures – Part 1

There is real scientific knowledge contained in the Vedic scriptures.

Based on the Vedic scriptures and the fact, time and matter are eternal. The scientists are in complete agreement with this. But the scientists also believe in creation of universe and thus creation of time and matter. The beginning of the universe and thus the beginning of time and matter. This does not make sense, because if time and matter are eternal, then how can there be a creation, the beginning of time and matter? The scientists have no answer on this very important scientific question.

Only the Vedic scriptures can answer this question. Time and matter are the energies of Lord Krishna (God). Since Lord Krishna is eternal, His energies are also eternal, and thus time and matter are eternal.

“My Self is the very source of creation..” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.5)

The above is confirming that Lord Krishna is the source of creation.  His energies of time and matter are the main elements of material manifestation (creation).

“Material nature and the living entities should be understood to be beginning less..” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 13.20)

The above is confirming that material nature (matter and time), and living entities (souls) have no beginning (are eternal). We (souls) are all eternal.

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Time I am.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.32)

The above is confirming that time is one of the energies of God.

The above knowledge is unique to Sanatan-Dharma and it comes directly from God. Even the scientists today cannot explain how time and matter are eternal.

Sanatan-Dharma – The Original Religion

Sanatan-Dharma – The Original Religion

In the business world, if someone establishes a business with a certain name and products. The business name is patented by international laws and nobody else can use the same name. The main concepts for making the products are also patented and nobody else can use those concepts without permission and royalty payments to the original product developer.

In a similar way, the first religion that was manifested in the world was Sanatan-Dharma, and thus nobody else has right to create another religion if we follow the international business laws. Thus real religion is one, Sanatan-Dharma. The name of the first religion itself establishes that it is the only religion that has always existed and it will always exist. ‘Sanatan’ means eternal and ‘Dharma’ means religion.

Based on the oldest documents on the planet, the Vedic scriptures. Sanatan-Dharma has been around since the beginning of creation of this universe, this was 155.522 trillion years ago. This also proves that Sanatan-Dharma is truly eternal.

All other so called religions which were created in the past 1000-3000 years are a violation of international patent laws on the ‘religion’ entity name and also the concepts of religion, which only belong to Sanatan-Dharma. But since Sanatan-Dharma preaches love and kindness towards all living beings. The followers of Sanatan-Dharma allows others to use the ‘religion’ entity and the concepts of religion. The other religions are also founded by man, this is another proof that only one religion is directly from God, and all other religions are from man.

“I am the compiler of the Vedas..” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.15)

From the above verse, it is clear that God Himself is the compiler of the Vedic scriptures.

In the original scriptures of Sanatan-Dharma, there were billions of verses of knowledge which were compiled by God Himself.  Only about a million verses remain today, due to loss of knowledge and destruction by the ignorant. In the original scriptures of other religions, they have less than 0.00% of the knowledge that is contained the original scriptures of Sanatan-Dharma. This is another proof that knowledge comes from Sanatan-Dharma, the first religion.

Since the Sanatan-Dharma scriptures (known as the Vedic scriptures) are the oldest and vastest, all the true knowledge that is contained in the scripture of recently created religions originate from the Vedic scriptures. All the truths found in the other non-Vedic scriptures can be found in greater detail in the Vedic scriptures.

“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion – at that time I descend Myself. To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.7-8)

From the above verse, it is clear that the principles of Sanatan-Dharma are repeatedly re-established. This is unique to Sanatan-Dharma. In the other religions, which are all recently created, the knowledge is delivered only once and less than 0.00% of the knowledge that is delivered by Lord Krishna.

The Vedic scriptures are repeatedly re-established/redelivered and not one off. The scriptures of other religions are one off creations.This is another proof that real knowledge is from the Vedic scriptures, and the original religion is the eternal religion, Sanatan-Dharma.

Another proof that religion is one, Sanatan-Dharma. Is that God is only described in the scriptures of Sanatan-Dharma. In the scriptures of recently created religions, God is just a name. There is ZERO information on God, on His description, appearances, qualities, and pastimes. God is invisible, unknown, and unknowable based on the non-Vedic scriptures.

“I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who know this perfectly engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.8)

Everything comes from Lord Krishna, the only seen and proven God.

Give Up Wicked Mentality

Give Up Wicked Mentality

People go to places of worship many times, read the scriptures many times, worship many times. But despite all this, they remain the same in terms of their behavior and mentality. They are still engaged in sinful activities, or they treat others badly, or they are miserly and so on. They basically have a wicked mentality.

  1. It is wicked to deny others the same rights that you want. Just as you want to practice your beliefs freely. You must also let others practice their beliefs freely.
  2. It is wicked to accept gifts from others but not give any gifts to others. You must take less and give more .
  3. It is wicked to waste other people’s time. You do not want others to waste your time. You should not waste other people’s time either.
  4. It is wicked to want the highest price for your items and expect others to give you their items free. You should put yourself in their shoes and pay for items appropriately.
  5. It is wicked to want the highest pay when you work and when it comes to paying others for their work, you want to bargain and pay the lowest amount.  Put yourself in their shoes and pay reasonably.
  6. It is wicked to visit the homes of people and eat their food and when they come to your home, you wonder why they came. Eat from others but you must also feed others when they come to your home or whenever possible.
  7. It is wicked to live off others. You must pay your share of the costs or help out based on your resources (effort, give time, give money).
  8. It is wicked to take from the poor. You must give to the poor and not just take from them.
  9. It is wicked to want others to listen to you when you don’t want to listen to them. Listening should be both ways and not one way.
  10. It is wicked to think your way is the only way. People are different and thus there are different ways for everyone.
  11. It wicked to think that you know everything. Knowledge is not limited to what you know. Listen and learn from others. The variety of people have variety of knowledge and thus one must learn from all to learn the most.
  12. It is wicked to expect others to follow your orders when you follow nobody’s orders. If you want to give orders, you must also obey orders from others.
  13. It is wicked to expect others to tell the truth, when you are a liar. Speak the truth, stand up for the truth, and side with those who are truthful.
  14. It is wicked to expect from others everything and you expect to give nothing to others. Expect from others but also realize that others are expecting from you. Take and also give.
  15. It wicked to expect cheap labor. You would not work cheaply, so why should others? Pay others what you would expect if you were doing it.
  16. It is wicked to only contact others when you are in need. You must stay in contact with everyone on a regular basis.
  17. It is wicked to take from others and not give. You must take take take and give give give give give give. Take one and give double.
  18. It is wicked do onto others what you wouldn’t want done onto you. Treat others the same as you want others to treat you. Thus treat everyone nicely.
  19. It is wicked to be miserly. Be miserly with yourself but never be miserly with others. Be very generous with others.
  20. It is wicked to live in other peoples homes when you have your own home.  Be satisfied with what you have, and use what you have, don’t live off others.
  21. It is wicked to use other peoples things when you have your own.  You must live with what you have.

All the above is based on a realization of the Vedic knowledge.

 

God Appears Unlimited Times

God Appears Unlimited Times

The real God appears unlimited times in various forms.

“Although I am unborn and My transcendental body never deteriorates, and although I am the Lord of all living entities, I still appear in every millennium in My original transcendental form.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.6)

This verse has to be combined with the teachings from the Srimad-Bhagavatam, in order to properly understand it. In the above verse translation, the word ‘millennium’ is used to describe the Sanskrit word Kalpa. Since this is the closet word that can be used to describe a very long time in the English dictionary, but it does not mean 1000 years in this verse.  Kalpa means one complete day of Brahma, this is 8.64 billion years. In this verse, Lord Krishna is stating that He appears in His original ‘Krishna’ form once every 8.64 billion years.

“To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.8)

In the above verse, ‘millennium’ refers to the Sanskrit word ‘Yuga’, meaning Krishna appears in His other forms in every Yuga, meaning era or age. There are four Yugas: Satya, Tetra, Dvarpa, Kali.  We are currently 5000 years into the Kali Yuga. Lord Krishna will appear in the form of Lord Kalki at the end of Kali Yuga, which will be in 427,000 years’ time. This does not mean that Lord Krishna is not present here today. He is present everywhere, always. But He will specially appear at the end of Kali Yuga to destroy the demonic and start the new Yuga, Satya Yuga.

“I am everywhere..” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.5)

“O son of Kunti, at the end of the millennium all material manifestations enter into My nature, and at the beginning of another millennium, by My potency, I create them again. (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.7)

This verse has to be combined with the teachings from the Srimad-Bhagavatam in order to properly understand it. In the above verse translation, the Sanskrit word ‘Maha Kalpa’ is translated as ‘millennium’, and this refers to a time period of 311.040 trillion years.  At the beginning of each cycle, Lord Krishna in the form of Maha-Vishnu appears and creates this and millions of other universes. The duration of each cycle is 311.040 trillion years.

Based on the non-Vedic beliefs, God only has one appearance and that too invisible, unknown, not describable, and unknowable. This essentially means no appearance.

Lord Krishna has appeared unlimited times and in each and every appearance, He very clearly proved that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Lord Krishna has no competitors. The so called other gods are claimed or created by man, and have yet to appear and prove it.

We are All Sparks of God

We are All Sparks of God

“The living entities in this conditioned world are My eternal fragmental parts. Due to conditioned life, they are struggling very hard with the six senses, which include the mind.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.7)

“Having obtained real knowledge from a self-realized soul, you will never fall again into such illusion, for by this knowledge you will see that all living beings are but part of the Supreme, or, in other words, that they are Mine.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.35)

We are all part of God, His sparks. We are all divine. All living beings are equally valuable to God. All living beings belong to God. These teachings are unique to Sanatan-Dharma.

Based on the other religions: We are not sparks of God, we are not divine, all living beings are not equally valuable to God. All living beings do not belong to God.

Be Kind

Be Kind

Give up Hate
Give up Jealousy
Give up Greed
Give up Anger
Be Kind and Friendly to all living beings

“One who is not envious but is a kind friend to all living entities is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13)

What is Purity?

What is Purity?

Purity is measured by the actions taken by a person. This includes behavior with everyone.

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Fearlessness; purification of one’s existence; cultivation of spiritual knowledge; charity; self-control; performance of sacrifice; study of the Vedas; austerity; simplicity; nonviolence; truthfulness; freedom from anger; renunciation; tranquillity; aversion to faultfinding; compassion for all living entities; freedom from covetousness; gentleness; modesty; steady determination; vigor; forgiveness; fortitude; cleanliness; and freedom from envy and from the passion for honor – these transcendental qualities, O son of Bharata, belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.1-3)

All the above means the following from a practical life perspective:

One does not become pure just by visiting holy places. One does not become pure just by chanting mantras. One does not become pure just by performing Pujas. One does not become pure just by reading the scriptures.

One must practice what they read, show and say by actions:

  • A pure person will always speak the truth, stand up for the truth, and side with the truth. Keep your word, never mislead or cheat anyone.
  • A pure person will be charitable according to the best of his/her  capacity.
  • A pure person will always work for the well being of others, including the animals.
  • A pure person has given up sinful activities of taking alcohol, drugs, gambling, outside marriage relationships, animal killing (meat eating).
  • A pure person does not have a wicked mentality. Don’t do onto others what you wouldn’t want done to you. You wouldn’t work for nothing, why should others work for nothing? You have to eat, others also have to eat. You want the maximum price for your items, others also want the maximum price from you. You wouldn’t give anything free to others. Why should others give you free?
  • A pure person treats everyone nicely.
  • A pure person sees the good in others and not just the bad.
  • A pure person takes the good values from others and leaves the bad ones.
  • A pure person will always serve others.
  • A pure person will always be humble. Knowledge is not limited to what you know. Your way is not the only way for everyone. You have different abilities, so does everyone else.
  • A pure person is free from pride and personal ego. Every hour, set your ego and pride meter to 0.
  • A pure person never looks down on others.
  • A pure person sees everyone with equal vision, but at the same time realize the differences which are caused by ignorance.
  • A pure person never curses anyone.
  • A pure person is always grateful for the good others have done for him. Even if one gives you one grain of rice, never forget it.
  • A pure person will forgive and forget the mistakes of others.
  • A pure person is not materialistic, has no interest in sight seeing.
  • A pure person knows God as a Person, realizes that God is everywhere and always thinks of Him and works to spread His instructions.

Give up Man-made Ideology and Take up God Ideology

Give up Man-made Ideology and Take up God Ideology

Give up Hate
Give up Violence
Give up Cursing
Give up Jealousy
Give up Envy
Take up loving all living beings

“One who is not envious but is a kind friend to all living entities is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13)

The above are the beautiful words from the only person who has proven Himself to be the real God. The above proves that He is truly the most merciful. The real seen and proven God.

The real God does not incite hatred in His followers. He incites love.
The real God does not incite violence in His followers. He incites love.
The real God does not incite cursing in His followers. He incites love.
The real God is never jealous, because He is complete with everything.
The real God is never envious of anyone, nor does He incite envy in His followers. He incites only love.

Follow the only proven God of love and mercy.

Full Description of God and ZERO Description of God

Full Description of God and ZERO Description of God

If one reads all the scriptures on the planet. He/she will find full description of God in the Vedic scriptures. In the non-Vedic scriptures there is ZERO description of God.  He is not described in the non-Vedic scriptures. This is because God is One and thus He is only described in the scriptures of one religion, Sanatan-Dharma.

To say God is great is certainly good but this does not help us to know Him. To say X is the only God is a non-sensical  statement. It means absolutely nothing to those who have some intelligence. To say Zoko is the greatest cricketer, means absolutely nothing, because Zoko is just a word and not a real, seen, and proven cricketer. To say Yuca is the greatest swimmer, means absolutely nothing to those who have some intelligence, because Yuca is just a word or a character in a book. Unless Yuca appears, competes with others, performs, and has a history of performance. Only then he can be accepted as the greatest swimmer.  In a similar way, unless the contender for the position of God, appears, competes with others, and proves it. He cannot be accepted as the real God.

Only the foolish and less intelligent will accept a contender as God. Who is unproven, unseen, with no record of competing with others, no history, and no performance record.

The intelligent will only accept a contender as God, if He proves it by competing with others, has a history, and performance record.

In the Srimad-Bhagavatam, full description, history, and performance record of Lord Krishna (God) is given.

  • His complexion is dark-blue, like that of a rain filled cloud
  • His eyes are like lotus petals
  • He is ever youthful
  • He is full of bliss
  • His beauty excels that of thousands of cupids
  • He likes to play the flute
  • He wears a peacock feather in his crown
  • He wears the Kaustubha jewel around his neck
  • He wears yellow garments

If you know God’s name, address, description, qualities, pastimes, history of when He appeared in the past, when He will appear in the future, how He creates and maintains, how He witnesses all our actions. Then you know God, otherwise you don’t know God. You will find all this information, only in the Vedic scriptures like the Bhagavad-Gita and the Srimad-Bhagavatam.

“His mouth expresses His happiness. His eyes spread like the petals of a lotus, and His garments, yellowish like the saffron of a kadamba flower, are bedecked with valuable jewels. His ornaments are all made of gold, set with jewels, and He wears a glowing head dress and earrings. His lotus feet are placed over the whorls of the lotus like hearts of great mystics. On His chest is the Kaustubha jewel, engraved with a beautiful calf, and there are other jewels on His shoulders. His complete torso is garlanded with fresh flowers. He is well decorated with an ornamental wreath about His waist and rings studded with valuable jewels on His fingers. His leglets, His bangles, His oiled hair, curling with a bluish tint, and His beautiful smiling face are all very pleasing.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.2.9-11)
