If you say that He is this and – He is not that, it means
That you have understood God, – None knows God,
Gita says this, – only God knows God, Veda says.
If you say that you know God – you must be God.
You say that you are awareness – and that awareness is God.
Yes, you are only awareness – you know yourself, we agree.
But awareness is not God – since you know awareness, yourself.
Every one is awareness like you, – if God is awareness,
Every body knows God, – then, how Gita said that
None knows God, – then, how Vedas say that
If any body says that he knows God, – he does not know
God at all, if any body says that – he does not know God
He knows God, – this means God is unknowable.

Advaitins have misunderstood – even the theory-class,
Advaita or monism is limited – to human incarnation only,
It should not be extended to – every human being here.
Advaita applies to Shankara, – He is human incarnation.
He swallowed molten lead, – followers could not do so.
He clearly filtered human beings – from Him by this miracle.
He told “Shivah Kevaloham”, – it means that He alone is God.
You have misunderstood Advaita – in the very first step itself
By extending it to all humanity – so that you become God.
This shows your ambition – to become omnipotent God.
Soham means that you are God, – this is the final eternal fruit.
It is possible but you have to – travel in a special path, it is
Dasoham, which means that – you are humble servant to God.
The address of God to serve is – the human incarnation here.
The care in service is that – you should never aspire for soham.
Hanuman studied Gita from Sun, – God told Gita to Sun, first,
He understood that Advaita is fruit, – Dvaita is the path to reach it.

With utmost care, He served His - contemporary human incarnation.
He received the fruit, – Ramayana is the practical procedure,
After understanding theory, Veda, – from Sun, returned to earth.
Advaitin has not understood – even the theory told by Shankara,
The Sun of knowledge on earth, – but follower is not Hanuman!
The follower is only a monkey – jumping quickly from right
Interpretation to wrong interpretation, - how can he come to
The practical procedure? – Ramayana is just a story for him.
Rama is Datta testing devotees severely, – first He masked Himself
With thick ignorance to impress that – He is a common man.
All His life is only examination of devotees, – no preaching here.
All the preaching was over – in the upper world for devotees.

He never showed miracles, – Lakshmana left his wife for Rama.
He acted as a watchman – while Rama enjoyed Sita in hut.
Rama showed climax of love to wife – by running for deer.
Rama overacted by weeping for wife, – all this is to divert
Lakshmana towards his wife, – Lakshmana was firm and never
Misunderstood Rama for His lust, - Rama acted as incapable
In several occasions, – Hanuman solved all His problems,
Some times Hanuman showed – miracles to help Rama,
But Hanuman always praised Rama – as omnipotent God,
Hanuman never thought himself – as God, only servant.

Every step of Ramayana – is a message for Pravrutti externally,
But internally every step is – a test in the end of Nivrutti.
Similarly Bhagavatam is a test – of Nivrutti for the sages.
Krishna acted as a thief and – over showed lust for ladies.
But the sages recognized Him – and surrendered totally to Him.
Mahabharatha shows the failures – of Pandavas in Nivrutti.
Even Dharma Raja, a leader in Pravtutti – could not succeed.
The places of failure are also important – to know for avoiding.
These three epics are – the laboratory – manuals after theory.

God is unknowable

It is agreed by the vedas.
Again it is stated that whatever you want to become, you can become that.
So if you want to become God, you can become God.
on God realisation it is stated in the Vedas that, you can be free if two things are there,
1. your own sadhana
2. The blessings of god.

Whatever have been written in Ramayanas and the Mahabharatas, are not to be treated as a story. The story is for the Gross. The finer element lies in Pinda Brahmanda philosophy.

As we say Rama : "Raw" and "Maw" Beeja, similarly all others are to be analysed in the yogic perspectives.
Miracles do not exist. Everything is a science. This is told by Mahavatara Babaji.

So keep away from persons who talk of miracles.
All scriptures are to be understood from the Yogic perspectives.
You can get such inspiration from Viveka Chudamani from the stanza : "Sabda Jaalam ........." written by Adi Shankara.
