A very fundamental question which can only be answered by the Vedic scriptures.
A very fundamental question which can only be answered by the Vedic scriptures.
Many people follow a particular religion but they don’t realize that their religion contradicts their core beliefs.
1. Is this our first life?
If one believes that this is not our first life, we have existed before this life, then they cannot follow Christianity and Islam, because both these religions teach that this is our first life, we never existed before this life.
“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment” (Hebrew 9:27)
The Bhagavad-Gita teaches that we (souls) never die, the body dies but the soul is eternal. Just as we exist now in this body, we existed before in another body and after this life, we will continue to exist in another body.
“As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, similarly, the soul accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.22)
“For one who has taken his birth, death is certain; and for one who is dead, birth is certain. Therefore, in the unavoidable discharge of your duty, you should not lament.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.27)
2. Belief in Ghosts
If one believes in ghosts then they cannot follow Christianity and Islam, because both these religions teach that this is the only life. A ghost is someone who is dead but they are seen in the same body even though they were buried and the body is destroyed due to decay.
The existence of ghosts proves that we don’t cease to exist when the body dies. This is not the only life.
The Bhagavad-Gita and other Vedic scriptures, give a very clear understanding of everything. Ghosts are real and they are basically people who are too much attached to their life before death. At death, generally the soul moves onto another body, but these people do not get a new material body, they remain in a ghostly body, which is not a material body but a gross body (no matter) and they try to enjoy as if they were still alive, but cannot and so they cause a disturbance to others. This is a punishment for too much attachment. There are also other reasons for becoming ghosts, The ghosts are temporary, after some time, the soul is released from ghostly existence and enters into the womb of a mother for his next material body and life.
The reason why the Vedic followers cremate the dead, is so that the soul is forced to completely forget his current body and life, because cremation instantly destroys the body and forces the soul to forget and move onto the next body, which the person gets exactly according to what they deserve, based on the actions taken by the person in their lives (karma).
When the body is not cremated (it’s buried), this increases the chances of the soul remaining near the burial ground or near it’s former family members and home, due to attachment to the body and previous life. Eventually the soul is forced to move onto it’s next body and life.
3. Belief in the Eternality of the Soul
If you believe that the soul is eternal, then you cannot follow Christianity and Islam, because both these religions teach that the soul is not eternal. They teach that the soul was created along with this body, this is our first life, we never existed before this life.
Based on Hebrew 9:27, we die once. If we only die once, then this means we only live once, we never existed before this life, thus the soul is not eternal. There are many other verses in the Bible which proves that based on the Bible, the soul is not eternal.
“The soul who sins will die..” (Ezekiel 18.4)
“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt 10:28)
“That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured some females and intended to have sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interrupt us. The Prophet said, “It is better that you should not do it [no coitus interrupt], for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa`id saying that the Prophet said, ‘No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”
(Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari 7409, Book 97, Hadith 38. Vol. 9, Book 93, Hadith 506)
In this Hadith, the followers of Muhammad have captured some women and are asking him if they should have sex with them and release the semen into them or just have sex and not inject them (pull out before releasing). The Prophet authorizes his men to have sex with the captured women and inject them with their semen, because the creation of souls is ordained by Allah and so by having sex, if the women become pregnant, then it’s the will of Allah. This Hadith is off course advocating sex slavery and there are many verses in the Koran and Hadith which advocate sex slavery (forced sex).
It is clear from this and many other verses from the Hadith and Koran that the soul is created for the first time with this body and we never existed before this life. Thus the soul is not eternal, based on the Islamic teaching.
The Bhagavad-Gita and other Vedic scriptures give a very clear explanation of everything. We (the soul) are eternal.
“For the soul there is never birth nor death. Nor, having once been, does he ever cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.20)
“The soul can never be cut into pieces by any weapon, nor can he be burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind. This individual soul is unbreakable and insoluble, and can be neither burned nor dried. He is everlasting, all-pervading, unchangeable, immovable and eternally the same.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.23-24)
4. Are we this bag of dirt and stool?
If you beleive that we are not this body, then you cannot follow Christianiry and Islam, because these religions teach that we are this body, which is full of all kinds of chemicals, stool, urine, flesh, and blood. They teach that when we die, the body is buried and on the day of judgement, this same body will rise from the grave. Thus based on these religions, we are this bag of dirt (this body).
“You shall indeed be raised up after death..” (Koran 11:7)
Based on the Koran and Bible, we are this body, based on their teachings, the dead body will be raised on day of resurrection.
5. This is our only body?
If one belives that this is not the only body we have had or will have, thus one belives in reincarnation. Then you cannot follow Christianity and Islam, because both these religons teach that this is the only body we have had and on the day of judgement, we will rise from the grave in this body. That’s why they bury the dead, thinking that the body will rise from the grave on the day of judgment.
“He said: ‘Therein you shall live, and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out (i.e.resurrected).’ ” (Koran 7:25)
The word resurrected is used many times in the Koran, Hadith and the Bible. This means the body we live in now will be resurrected, this is the Islamic and Christian teaching.
The Bhagavad-Gita teaches that just as we exist now in this body, we existed before in another body and after this life, we will continue to exist in another body (Bhagavad-Gita 2.22). This is reincarnation, transmigration of the soul from one body to another.
Common sense also tells us that after the body is buried, it decays and there is noway it’s going to rise from the grave. These religions teach that the body will rise from the grave and eternally go to heaven. Some people may not want to live eternally in their current body and when is the day of judgment? Absolutely no idea. These teachings pose many issues.
The Vedic scriptures teach that the day of judgement is immediately at death and every single soul (you too), will eventually go back to the spiritual creation with a brand new body that is completely beautiful, full of knowledge, eternal, and live in complete bliss/love, with no trace of misery. Lord Krishna does not send anyone to eternal hell, because He is truly the Lord of all beings, and He loves everyone.
“I envy no one, nor am I partial to anyone. I am equal to all. But whoever renders service unto Me in devotion is a friend, is in Me, and I am also a friend to him.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.29)
6. God is Merciful and Forgiving?
If one believes that God is merciful and forgiving then, they cannot follow Christianity and Islam, because these religions teach that we only get one chance, only one life, and on the day of judgment, we are either sent to hell eternally or heaven eternally. If someone is atheistic or does not follow these religons then they are sent to hell for ever, thus God cannot be called merciful nor forgiving, based on their teachings.
Only the Bhagavad-Gita teches that we get unlimited chances and not just one. Lord Krishna does not send anyone to hell eternally, Even the most sinful person will eventually get liberation. This is because Lord Krishna is truly most merciful and forgiving.
Lord Krishna is for justice and fairness, He judges us based on the actions (deeds) we take in life and not just a religious label. Those who do good to others, are rewarded and those who bad are punished.
“One who does good, My friend, is never overcome by evil.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 6.40)
“One who is not envious but who is a kind friend to all living entities,. – he is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13-14)
We should be kind to living beings, the followers of Lord Krishna are vegetarian, because we consider the animals as our borthers and sisters, and thus we don’t eat them. Lord Krishna wants justice for all living beings, and not just the humans. This is because Lord Krishna is most merciful and loving to all living beings.
“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)
Those who have the above listested qualities are blessed and those who don’t can develop them and become blessed. Lord Krishna is most merciful, forgiving, and loving to all living beings.
7. Animals are made for killing and eating?
Those who believe that animals have the right to exist, cannot follow Christianity and Islam, because these religions teach that animals are just food for humans. The worlds biggest slaughter house is in Saudi Arabia and the world’s biggest killing spree takes place during the main Islamic festival of Haj, when millions of cows, goats, camels, sheep and other animals are killed in the name of their God.
“And the Budn (cows, oxen, or camels driven to be offered as sacrifices by the pilgrims at the sanctuary of Makkah.) We have made for you as among the Symbols of Allah, therein you have much good. So mention the Name of Allah over them when they are drawn up in lines (for sacrifice). Then, when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat thereof, and feed the beggar who does not ask (men), and the beggar who asks (men). Thus have We made them subject to you that you may be grateful.” (Koran 22:36)
“The humble sages, by virtue of true knowledge, see with equal vision a learned and gentle brāhmaṇa, a cow, an elephant, a dog and a dog-eater [outcaste].” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 5.18)
The truly educated are those who see with equal vision, all living beings. Only the animals see other animals as food.
“If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a ﬂower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.26)
Lord Krishna will accept a leaf, flower, fruit, or water, and not the flesh and blood of animals.
There are many who cut the throat of animals and bleed them to death, in the name of their God. They think that God becomes pleased by killing. Lord Krishna is not that kind of a God, He wants the animals to exist alongside the humans. The followers of Lord Krishna are pure vegetarians, they do not kill nor eat animals.
8. God is invisible, unknown, unseen?
If one believes that God has to be real, seen, proven, and known, then they cannot follow Christinaity and Islam, because these religions do not describe God. They believe God is invisible, unseen, and unknown. Based on their teachings, nobody has seen God.
“Whoever claims that Muhammad saw his Lord. Then he has uttered one the worst lies against Allah, Allah says: No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision.. ” (Vol 1, Book 44, Hadith 3068)
It is very clear from the above Hadith that even the founder of Islam did not see God, thus God is not described and unknown, based on Islam.
“That the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).” (Sahih al-Bukhari 5133 Book 67, Hadith 69)
“I used to play with dolls when I was with the Messenger of Allah, and he used to bring my friends to me to play with me.” (Sahih Vol. 3, Book 9, Hadith 1982)
The Prophet of Islam lived to 63, thus he married the 6 year old Aisha when he was 51 and started to have sex with her when she was 9 and he was 54.
“The Messenger of God said, ‘The only two things I cherish of the life of this world are women and perfume’” (Tabaqat, volume 1, page 380)
The Muslims say the Prophet of Islam was the best human being.
The above and many other similar Hadiths (actions of the Prophet), very clearly show why for the founder of Islam and his followers, God will be unknown.
God is not cheap, He does not appear to anyone. Only the most pious souls who are sincerely serving God and have a very strong desire to see Him, can know and see God, face to Face.
God is eternal and the human beings have exited for billions of years at the very least, so why should He remain unknown, and unseen?
“My dear Arjuna, only by undivided devotional service can I be understood as I am, standing before you, and can thus be seen directly. Only in this way can you enter into the mysteries of My understanding.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagaavd-Gita 11.54)
We cannot see God with our blunt eyes, only if He wishes, then can we see Him, not otherwise. God is not our servant that He will appear on our command, no. We are the servant and God is the Master, and only when the Master is statisfied that the servant is qualified, then He will be known and Seen, face to Face.
“But you cannot see Me with your present eyes. Therefore I give to you divine eyes by which you can behold My mystic opulence.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.8)
For those who are engaged in wars, violence, hatred, stealing, lust, slavery, rape, animal killing, materialism. Such persons can never know God, what to speak of seeing Him. For them, God will be invisible and unknown.
For those whose eyes and mind is closed. God will be invisible, unseen, and unknown. Those who follow the blind, will also become blinded.
“I am never manifest to the foolish and unintelligent.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 7.25)
God is One, and thus He only describes Himself in one place, the Vedic scriptures. Only Lord Krishna has declared and proves Himself as the Supreme Person, this is because only He is God. All other so-called Gods are just names in books, completely unknown.
Based on the oldest documents on the planet, the Vedic scriptures, God is very much real, seen, proven, and completely known. God has also been seen by millions of His followers.
“Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.11)
Lord Krishna has appeared more than 18,000 tmes in His original form, and millions of times in His other forms, right here on this planet, and each and every time, He proved that He was God. He appeared 5000 years in His original form and very clearly proved He was God. The foolish will keep looking for God or will follow a name in a book as God and not the real proven Lord Krishna. The Bhagavad-Gita is not a one off scripture like the Bible and Koran, it has already been spoken millions of times in millions of universes, by the same Person, Lord Krishna.
How brilliant does God look in a particular universal form?
“If hundreds of thousands of suns were to rise at once into the sky, their radiance might resemble the effulgence of the Supreme Person in that universal form.” (Bhagavad-Gita 11.12)
Only Lord Krishna has declared Himself and proved that He is the one and only God.
“The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)
“Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being – moving or nonmoving – that can exist without Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.39)
“But what need is there, Arjuna, for all this detailed knowledge? With a single fragment of Myself I pervade and support this entire universe.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.42)
9. Human Slavery?
If one believe that making humans into slaves is wrong, then they cannot follow Islam and Christinaity, because the scriptures of both these religions advocate slavery and they have a history of making humans into slaves.
The christians have a history of making humans into slaves and the Bible clearly advocates it.
“Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.” (Ephesians 6:5)
The Koran not only advocates slavery but also sex slavery.
“And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess..” (Koran 4:24)
“O Prophet! We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have given their dowers; and those ladies whom your right hands possess (from the prisoners of war) whom Allah has assigned to you.” (Koran 33:50)
The above 2 verses basically means that Muslim men can have sex with their wives and also with those they take capture in wars. This means making women into sex slaves (rape), because no women would voluntarily have sex and especially with those who have killed her husband in war. This also means adultery, because the women and/or the Muslim men are married. The captive women also includes the daughters of married women.
The founder of Islam himself took non-Muslim women captive and had forced sex with many of them.
“Muhammad selected Safiyyah because of her beauty, made her his wife and gave a banquet at the wedding; then he had sex with Saffiyah at Sa`d-AsSahba..” (Sahih Bukhari 4.52.143)
Safiyyah was only 17 when she was taken captive (sex slave), after her husband was killed by the Prophet (57 at the time), and on the same day, he had sex with her. The Prophet is the best human being based on the Koran.
The followers of the Vedic religion, have NEVER made humans into slaves. The vast Vedic scriptures do not have any verses which advocate slavery. Slavery is considered barbaric based on the Vedic knowledge.
Based on all the World religions, there is only one religion where God is actually completely described and known. In all other religions, God is not described, thus completely unknown. This is because God is One, and only those who follow His religion have the right to know Him.
|Above is the God of the Bhagavad-Gita, Lord Krishna||Above is the God of Islam (unknown)||Above is the God of the Bible (unknown)|
The Christians say ‘Jesus is the only way’. Thus the non-Christians go to hell.
The Muslims say ‘Islam is the only way’. Thus the non-Muslims go to hell.
The Vedic followers wish for all living beings to go to the kingdom of God. This is the result of following the religion created by God and not man, the real religion of mercy, peace, and love.
Before 2000 years ago, there was no such thing as the Bible or Jesus. So did the zillions of humans who lived for millions of years before Jesus, all went to hell through no fault of their own as they did not follow Jesus?
It’s impossible for Christianity to exist beyond this Planet. So do the zillions of living beings living on millions of other Planets all go to hell as they don’t follow Jesus?
Before 1400 years ago, there was no Islam, no Koran, no Muhammad. So did the zillions of humans who lived for millions of years before Islam, all went to hell as they did not follow Islam?
Islam is a one off religion created 1400 years ago on this planet only. Thus it’s impossible for Islam to exist beyond this Planet. So do the zillions of living beings living on millions of other Planets all go to hell as they don’t follow Islam?
The Vedic scriptures state that this is the smallest Universe and there are trillions of other Universes. Within each Universe there are numerous Planets with living beings. Just think how insignificant this tiny Planet is in God’s creation. And how insignificant are a group of people who have existed for a few hundred or few thousand years out of the trillions of years that humans have existed on this Planet.
“It should be understood that all species of life, o son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed giving father” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.4)
There is only one real person who states He is the father of all living beings, that person is Lord Krishna. Every second, God is creating the Hindus/Vedic followers. This is simple proof that God wants the Hindus to exist. Thus it’s dumb for Christians and Muslims to say their way is the only way. The existence of non-Christians and non-Muslims clearly proves that it’s Gods will that they exist. And God has been creating the Hindus for millions of years and the non-Hindus (Christians and Muslims) for less than 2000 years. Thus it’s God’s will that Hindus exist and God wants the Hindus to exist much more than the non-Hindus. This means that by the will of God, the Hindus have eternally existed and the non-Hindus are not eternal.
if you read the history books, you will know that except for the Hindus. No other race, religion or creed of people have existed for more than a few thousand years. But the Hindus have existed for millions of years. This is the will of God.
Thus it’s absolutely ludicrous for the Muslims and Christians to say their way is the only way.
The Koran is based on Muslims Verses Non-Muslims
“Slay the unbelievers wherever you catch them.” (Koran 2:191)
“I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them” (Koran 8:12)
God is the father of all living beings, God is the most responsible person. How can the most responsible father make these kind of statements? What kind of a father would order some of his children to hate and behead their other brothers and sisters?
It’s God who is creating the variety of humans every second. If God didn’t like certain humans then why would he create them in the first place?
Those who have no faith in God see humans as believers and un-believers. The simple fact is that the above statements are made by a man who wants to control others and not by the most responsible person, God, who is in full control.
“Fight them, until there is no more dissent and religion is that of Allah” (Koran 2:193)
The existence of the non-Muslims clearly proves that the all mighty God very much wants the non-Islamic religions to exist. And the fact that the non-Muslims have existed for millions of years and the Muslims for only 1400 years, clearly proves that the all mighty God wants the non-Muslims to exist more so than the Muslims. It’s God’s will that Muslims are not eternal and non-Muslims are eternal. Every second the Jews, Hindus, Christians and others are being created by God by his will, thus the above statements cannot be made by God.
Who Are The Unbelievers?
“And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.” (Koran 3.85)
It’s God who is creating the Jews, Hindus, Christians and others every second and this is simple proof that God wants the various religions to exist. Freedom of religion is a basic human right which is given by God Himself and thus those who don’t allow freedom of religion everywhere in the World are the faithless. They have no faith in God as they are against the will of God, and thus they are the real enemies of God, the unbelievers.
The forefathers of all Muslims were followers of other religions for millions of years, and thus for the Muslims to think that their forefathers all went to hell as they did not follow a recently created religion (Islam) is evil mentality.
God Does not Incite Hatred or Violence
The real God, Lord Krishna, is the father of all living beings and thus He loves all living beings and orders His true followers to be kind and loving to all living beings.
“I hate no one. I am equal to all living beings…” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.29)
“…One who has no enemies among all living beings comes to me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.55)
“One who is compassionate to all living beings … – These are some of the qualities of those born with divine nature.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.1-3)
God’s Scriptures are Eternal
According to the scientists this universe is at least 15 billion years old and the simple fact is that God already created his religion (Sanatan-Dharma – The Eternal Religion) at the beginning of creation and not 15 billion years after creation (1400 years ago). The Vedic scriptures state that the Vedic religion was re-established in the current cycle, when the Vedic knowledge was given to a person called Brahma, some 155.522 trillion years ago when this universe was created in the current cycle. The Vedic scriptures like the Bhagavad-Gita was first spoken on this planet some 155.522 trillion years ago and it has also been spoken on millions of other universes by Lord Krishna himself. Thus the position of religion and God was filed by Sanatan Dharma and Lord Krishna respectively, trillions of years ago and not recently.
“The whole cosmic order is under me. By my will it is manifested again and again, and by my will it is annihilated at the end” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)
“Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being, moving or unmoving, that can exist without me” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.39)
Trillions of years before Islam, Lord Krishna appeared, declared, and proved Himself to be the one and only God. Lord Krishna has appeared in His original form more than 18,000 times in the current cosmic cycle on this planet, and each time He clearly proved that He was God. He has also appeared in millions of other universes, this is how great the real God is.
“Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship shall become one of their numbers. Allah does not guide the wrong-doers.” (Koran 5:51)
The existence of Jews and Christians is proof that God very much wants them to exist. The all mighty God is in full control and thus every second he is creating the Jews, Hindus, Christians, and others by His own will.
The Muslims should have faith in God, who is creating the non-Muslims every second and has been doing so for millions of years. Thus it’s God’s will that non-Muslims exist and by the will of God, the non-Muslims will eternally exist.
The fact that humans have existed for millions of years and the Koran for only 1400 years is simple proof that the Koran cannot be the only way.
The fact that Islam is created by one man who appeared on this planet, is proof that it’s impossible for Islam to exist beyond this planet.
The Vedic scriptures state that there are millions of other planets with living beings. And none of the living beings on other planets can be Muslim, thus there is no Islam beyond this tiny planet.
The Koran forbids image worship, but it’s the all mighty God who wants to be worshiped in the image form. That’s why He has been creating those who worship Him in the image form for millions of years (the Hindus).
Muhammad was the Last Prophet of God?
Millions of prophets came before Muhammad and millions of prophets will come after Muhammad, as God is great and thus he sends unlimited prophets and not just one.
Just go to a science museum and you will see the bones of humans dating back to millions of years and thus it’s foolish to think that our forefathers all lived in ignorance as they did not follow recently created man made religions which have existed for less than 2000 years(Islam and Christianity). Also, how can they say Muhammad is the last prophet of God, when it’s impossible for Islam to exist beyond this planet. Is there no religion or God beyond this planet?
The Vedic scriptures state that there are millions of planets with living beings beyond this planet and only the Vedic scriptures can exist beyond this planet, as they are based on unlimited prophets. The Bhagavad-Gita has already been spoken by Lord Krishna in millions of universes. One of the main differences between Sanatan Dharma (The Eternal Religion) and the other religions which are based on one man, is that the followers of Sanatan Dharma (Hindus) have complete faith in God. We do not hate others and we understand that people have different mentalities and thus not everyone can understand everything.
The founder of Islam married more than 20 times after the age of 50. His marriages included marrying the 6 year old Aisha (his brother’s daughter) when he was 51. Women taken captive in war, including the 17 year old Safiyyah, when he was around 54 and the 20 year old Juwairiya, when he was around 58. He even married his son’s wife (daughter in law). He was also engaged in wars. If one thinks such a person is qualified to be called a prophet of God then it’s your choice. We have free will, which is given by God and so we are each responsible for our own actions (karma) for which we will suffer or enjoy in the future. God allows the variety of religions to exist, to satisfy the variety of mentalities that humans have. The recently created religions are based on one prophet, one planet, hatred of others, one off scriptures, and a few thousand years history at most.
The Vedic religion is based on unlimited prophets who are not lusty nor violent, millions of universes, love for all living beings, eternal scriptures, and trillions of years of history. This is the difference between man made and God made. The Muslims can become peaceful and full of love if they accept the will of God by living in harmony with all of God’s creation. The Jews,Christians, Hindus, others, and animals.
Despite so many merciless statements in the Koran, the compiler of the Koran finally cools down and admits there is only one God who is worshiped by the Muslims and the non-Muslims.
“We believe in that which has been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our God and your God is One, and unto Him we surrender.” (Koran 29:46)
All humans should reject hatred, violence, and man made ideologies. Embrace love, peace, follow a God who is loving, responsible, not a bully, who is visible, and known eternally to man. That great all loving God is Lord Krishna.
“One who is not envious but is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor and is free from false ego, who is equal in both happiness and distress, who is tolerant, always satisfied, self-controlled, and engaged in devotional service with determination, his mind and intelligence fixed on Me — such a devotee of Mine is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13-14)
The End is Near?
For 2000 years, the Christians have been saying the end of time is near and so we should become one of them, and the Muslims have also been saying the same thing and that’s why they say Muhammad was the last prophet. The less intelligent will buy this, as they have no knowledge, nor do they esquire. Those who are inquisitive, the real human beings, will not buy this. The fact that they cannot say exactly when the end will come is simple proof that they are only fooling themselves and the fools who follow them.
According to the scientists this planet has existed for at least 15 billion years and the Vedic scriptures state the age of this planet and universe to be 155.522 trillion years and this universe will be destroyed in 155.518 trillion years time. So whether you accept the authority of recently created scriptures which give incomplete information or the eternal Vedic scriptures which give complete information, the choice is yours.
The Bible is based on Christians Verses Non-Christians
“Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” (Exodus 34.14)
Man can be jealous because man is not in control, but how can God be jealous?
“Whoever sacrifices to any god other than the LORD must be destroyed.” (Exodus 22:20)
“Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.” (Ephesians 6:5)
Would the all merciful and loving God order humans to be enslaved?
It can be seen from the above verses from the Bible that it’s based on us verses them. Thus these and other similar statements are the words of man and not God. It’s obvious that the above and other merciless statements in the Bible are man made concoctions and not from the all loving God.
Think how insignificant are a race of people who have existed for only 2000 years out of the billions of years that humans have existed on this Planet.
“Animals are food for humans” (Bible and Koran)
Why should the animals be food for the humans? The animals also eat, sleep, mate, defend and so what is the difference between the humans and animals? The humans have a soul and so do the animals. God is the father of all humans and also of the animals. So what kind of a father would order some of his children to eat their unfortunate brothers (the animals)?
The followers of the Bhagavad-Gita, consider all living beings to be brothers and sisters and thus do not kill and eat their unfortunate brothers and sisters (the animals). They are pure vegetarians.
“It should be understood that all species of life, o son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed giving father” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.4)
The Bhagavad-Gita is not based on Hindus Verses Non-Hindus
“I envy no one, nor am I partial to anyone. I am equal to all.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.23)
“Nonviolence; freedom from anger; compassion for all living entities. These qualities belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.1-3)
“Thus I have explained to you knowledge still more confidential. Deliberate on this fully, and then do what you wish to do.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.63)
These are the beautiful words of God. He loves us all equally. Lord Krishna is not a bully, He does not incite hate, anger or violence towards any living being. God means the all-merciful, all loving person. Only Lord Krishna full fills these qualities. After speaking the Bhagavad-Gita to Arjuna, Lord Krishna gives Arjuna freedom to do whatever he wishes. Lord Krishna doesn’t tell Arjuna that he will go to hell or hell fire if he doesn’t follow him. Lord Krishna is the real God of love, mercy, and forgiveness.
The Bible is based on Christians verses Non-Christians, the Koran is based on Muslims verses non-Muslims. But the Bhagavad-Gita is not based on Hindus verses non-Hindus. There is no mention of Hindu or Hinduism in the Vedic scriptures including the Bhagavad-Gita. As God is the creator of all living beings and thus he does not discriminate between living beings.
The Bible and Koran are man made and thus it’s based on us verses them. The Bhagavad-Gita was spoken by God himself and written by God himself and thus it’s not based on us verses them. Lord Krishna states in the Bhagavad-Gita that he is equal to all living beings. This proves that he is the God of all living beings, the God of love and peace and he is in full control.
A father may have several children, only an evil father would tell some of his children to hate the others. Lord Krishna is the father of all living beings and thus He preaches that we should not even kill our unfortunate brothers and sisters, the animals (be vegetarian). The so-called God of the Bible and Koran orders the killing of animals and humans who don’t follow their religion. What kind of a father would order the killing of some of his children?
From the above statements and pictures, it can be seen and understood that there is only one known God, Lord Krishna. And Lord Krishna is not a bully or hater of anyone, He loves all His creatures including the Hindus, Christians, Muslims and the animals. Lord Krishna is most loving and caring, He doesn’t hate anyone. He is the God of love, the real God.
God Is Not Christian, Not Muslim, And Not Hindu. God Is for All Living Beings
It’s God who creates the Christians and it’s the same God who creates the Muslims, and the same God who creates the Hindus and others.At his own will. It’s God’s will that every second Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and others are born. Before 2000 years ago there was no Jesus, no Christianity, and no Islam. Did the zillions of humans who lived before 2000 years ago live in ignorance and went to hell, as they did not follow these religions, as they did not exist? Thus how can they say their way is the only way? It has been scientifically proven that Humans have existed for millions of years. The Hindus have existed for millions of years. The Christians have existed for 2000 years and the Muslims for 1400 years. This is proof that God created his religion millions of years ago and not just 2000 years ago or 1400 years ago. And he very much wants the Hindus to exist more so than the non-Hindus. Thus it’s ludicrous for the Christians and Muslims to say their way is the only way.
So Why Does God Allow Different Religions To Exist?
God created his religion at creation, trillions of years ago. But recently in the last few thousand years. Many religions have been created by man. Although God would like all humans to follow the religion created by Him (Sanatan Dharma). God allows the man made religions to exist due to the differing desires and mentality of humans.
“Those who are devotees of other gods and who worship them with faith actually worship only me, O son of Kunti, but they do so in a wrong way. I am the only enjoyer and master of all sacrifices. Therefore, those who do not recognize my true transcendental nature fall down” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.24)
Does everyone drive the same make and model of car? Does everyone like the same color clothes? Does everyone like the same food? The answer is No. People have differing tastes in cars, clothes, food, and beliefs (religion). To satisfy everyone, God allows different religions to exist.
Human life means freedom and thus God allows humans to create and practice whatever religions humans want. Even though the teachings may be against God’s will. However, when the humans become too degraded. God incarnates himself to again establish the correct principles of religion and to destroy the demonic.
“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 reestablish the principles of religion, I myself appear, millennium after millennium.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.7-8)
What Determines The Religion A Person Is Born Into?
A person is born into a particular religion according to the mentality of the person (the soul) at the time of death.
A person who believes killing and eating animals pleases God and does not care to know God as a person who is completely described, has the mentality of a Muslim, thus the person (the soul) resides in a Muslim body. The Muslim mentality is that God is formless and thus can never be known. The Muslims follow Islam so they can go to heaven and enjoy women and wine.
“In them will be bashful virgins neither man nor Jinn will have touched before” (Koran 55.56)
“Here is a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, a joy to those who drink” (Koran 47.15)
A person, who believes killing is totally wrong, has the body of a Hindu. The Hindu mentality is that if there is a God then I want to see him. It’s pointless to believe in something without proof. The Vaisnava sect of the Vedic religion go to the temple to worship God for no material desires, just to give love to God. They offer food to God (bogh)then eat the offered food (parsadam). The Hindus believe in giving love to Guru and God and not their sins or the blood of living beings.
A person who believes killing and eating animals is ok and he can sin, and the reactions will be taken on by God’s one and only son has the mentality of a Christian. The Christians go to the Church on Sunday and ask for their daily bread and to give their sins to Jesus. The Christians want to live in sin, so that Jesus can live in pain.
The Hindus offer food to God and then eat the remnants called parsadam, the Muslims slaughter animals in the name of God as they think this pleases him, and the Christians offer their sins to God.
At the time of judgment, a sinful Hindu says ‘I will pay for my own sins (karma)’. A sinful Christian says ‘I will let Jesus pay for my sins’. A Muslims says ‘regardless of the deeds (no karma), since I followed Islam I will go to heaven and enjoy wine and women as promised by Allah’.
These are some examples of the mentality of Christians, Muslims, and Hindus. The particular mentality of a person at death determines what his religion will be in his next human body. The mentality may change after birth, that’s why people change religions.
“According to one’s existence under the various modes of nature, one evolves a particular kind of faith. The living being is said to be of a particular faith according to the modes he has acquired.” (Bhagavad-Gita 17.3)
“The living entity in the material world carries his different conceptions of life from one body to another as the air carries aromas. Thus he takes one kind of body and again quits it to take another.” (Bhagavad-Gita 15.8)
The non-Vedic religions don’t preach the theory of karma and reincarnation. They believe everything happens by chance. Thus it’s just too bad if one is born diseased or suffers more than others. It’s by chance that one is born into a particular religion in his only life and so on. Those who have some intelligence will not buy this.
Anyone Who Surrenders Unto God Can Be Liberated
“When one’s intelligence, mind, faith and refuge are all fixed in the Supreme, then one becomes fully cleansed of misgivings through complete knowledge and thus proceeds straight on the path of liberation.” (Bhagavad-Gita. 5.17)
“By following his qualities of work, every man can become perfect.” (Bhagavad-Gita 18.45)
“By worship of the Lord, who is the source of all beings and who is all-pervading, man can, in the performance of his own duty, attain perfection.” (Bhagavad-Gita.18.46)
“One can understand the Supreme Personality as He is only by devotional service. And when one is in full consciousness of the Supreme Lord by such devotion, he can enter into the kingdom of God.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.55)
How Can A Dog Go To The Kingdom Of God?
Every living being, including the plants and animals are souls covered in a particular material body. The plants and animals are on an evolutionary process of transmigration of the soul from one body to the next. Eventually they will get a human birth. Then if they surrender and engage in devotional service onto God, they will attain the kingdom of God at death. Those humans do not surrender and engage in devotional service onto God, will fall down in the animal kingdom at death.
“When one dies in the mode of ignorance, he takes birth in the animal kingdom.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.15)
This is a scientific analysis of how beliefs of humans are related to the environmental conditions where the ideologies originate.
The Middle East is essentially a desert which compared to other regions of the world is devoid of greenery, devoid of most species of animals, devoid of natural beauty, scorching heat during the day and cold in the night. The ideologies which originate from the desert are also barren like the desert.
India is a fertile country with greenery, many species of animals and plants, natural beauty including water falls, and moderate temperatures. The ideologies which originate from India are fertile like the land.
Knowledge on God based on the ideologies which originate from the desert is barren like the desert. He is completely unknown, unseen, and unproven.
God is completely known and described in the Vedic scriptures.
The plants which grow in the desert are devoid of any juices. The concept of God based on the ideologies which originate from the desert makes God devoid of any juices. He is devoid of any personal relationship with the living entities.
All the living entities can enjoy the juice (rasa) of a personal relationship with the Supreme.
There are five main ways of enjoying the juice (rasa) of a relationship with the Supreme:
1. One can worship Krishna and enjoy the affection of service unto Him (santa-rasa)
2. One can be a personal servant of Krishna, enjoying the affection of personal service unto Him (dasya-rasa)
3. One can be a friend of Krishna, enjoying the affection of friendship (sakhya-rasa)
4. One can be a guardian or parent of Krishna, enjoying parental affection (vatsalya-rasa)
5. One can dance with Krishna, enjoying His personal affection (madhura-rasa)
Lord Krishna is very merciful and loving and He proves this by satisfying the desires of His devotees to associate with Him in a personal relationship.
The plants in the desert have a short lifespan. The ideologies which originate from the desert also have a short lifespan of at most a few thousand years.
The knowledge which originates from the fertile land of India is eternal. The Vedic knowledge is eternal and existing in this universe since its creation, some 155.522 trillion years ago. The Vedic knowledge was last written down more than 5000 years ago. Except for the Vedic civilization, no other civilization has existed for more than a few thousand years. All the non-Vedic civilizations existing today will become extinct like the millions of others civilizations before them in the 155.522 trillion years since creation.
There are very limited species of living beings in the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert also have limited knowledge, only one book.
There were billions of verses in the Vedic scriptures, but most of the knowledge has been lost due to a number of reasons including destruction by the followers of desert ideologies (invaders in India). Currently there are more than 810,000 verses left in the Vedic scriptures. The essence of all Vedic knowledge is the Bhagavad-Gita, the words of a proven and seen God in person.
The plants in the desert are limited to the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert are limited to this tiny planet.
The Vedic knowledge is universal, existing in millions of other universes. Lord Krishna has appeared and performed His pastimes in millions of universes. He last appeared in His original form just 5000 years ago, and in His form as Lord Caitanya, 500 years ago.
Many species of plants in the desert are annuals, they only appear once. The ideologies which originate from the desert are annuals, they are only created once and never to be re-created/re-spoken.
Lord Krishna has appeared more than 18,000 times so far in the current cosmic cycle and in each and every appearance He performed His transcendental pastimes, including speaking the Bhagavad-Gita.
The desert is the ideal home for cold blooded living beings like lizards. The ideologies which originate from the desert are also cold blooded. They advocate slavery, adultery, rape, and stealing.
The Vedic scriptures DO NOT advocate slavery, adultery, rape, and theft. The Vedic followers have never made humans into slaves, never stolen any property belonging to others, and have never attacked other nations. In fact, the desert ideology followers have attacked India, raped the women, destroyed Temples, and stolen her land.
The desert living beings like lizards and plants are devoid of color. The desert ideology followers are also devoid of color. Their women are covered in darkness (black).
The Vedic followers are most colorful, and only in the Vedic culture there is a festival of colors which is celebrated once a year.
The desert has very limited supply of vegetables and fruits, and so the species of living beings in the desert are mainly carnivores. One animal is food for another animal. The ideologies which originate from the desert are only for the carnivores, flesh eaters.
In the fertile land of India, there are many varieties of fruits and vegetables. There is absolutely no need to eat flesh. The Bhagavad-Gita advocates only a vegetarian based diet for humans. The animals are food only for other animals.
In the desert, there is no point in looking far out, because there is nothing but sand. The species of living beings in the desert are short sighted, they can’t see too far out. The ideologies which originate from the desert are also for short sighted humans. They can’t see anything beyond their own tiny well. They think that their tiny well has all the water on the planet.
The Vedic followers are far sighted, they know that there is a vast ocean full of water on this planet, and also a vast ocean outside this planet. The Vedic scriptures contain historical information on this universe dating back to 155.522 trillion years and also give information on other universes. Lord Krishna has already appeared in millions of universes and the Vedic scriptures give information on what transcendental activities He performs in each of His appearances.
The desert is very harsh, and this is infused into the mentality of the species living in the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert also infuses harshness. The followers of these ideologies are full of hate, anger, and violence.
The Vedic followers are very fertile, full of love for all living beings. The Bhagavad-Gita is the only scripture on the planet which preaches that all living beings are brothers and sisters. Even the animals like cows are considered mothers, because they give humans their milk. In the Eyes of Lord Krishna, there is justice for all living beings, and this is administered through the Law of Karma. An eye for an eye is the punishment. If a human kills and eats an animal, the soul from that same human will be placed in the body of the same species of animals and then it will be his turn to be killed and eaten.
The harshness of the desert makes the living beings think they will die very soon. The ideologies which originate from the desert preach that the end is very near, these are the last days. They have been saying this for hundreds of years.
The Vedic scriptures give exact timing of the start and end of the universe and this information comes from the person who has created millions of universes, Lord Krishna. The Vedic followers follow the information passed down in disciplic succession, starting from Lord Krishna, and not base it on their own perception and life experiences. The total lifespan of the universe is 311.040 trillion years, of which 155.522 trillion years has passed and we have 155.518 trillion years left before the complete destruction of the universe.
In the desert there is no sound of the birds singing, because there are no singing birds. Mainly flesh eating vultures can be found in the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert, are also soundless. They are against the beautiful sound of music, which softens the heart. The ideologies which originate from the desert ban music, making its followers stone hearted. Inducing them to wickedness, and barbaric acts of hate, rape, and murder.
In the fertile land of India, there are many species of birds which make beautiful sounds everyday. In particular, peacocks and sparrows. Lord Krishna is the best musician, He plays the flute. Music softens the heart, and is the element of love. Those without music are without love for others.
