Lord is Above Qualities

The ultimate God, Datta appears as the pious scholar with all good qualities. Sometimes, He appears as a person drinking the wine and at times with a prostitute. The reason for such different and opposite qualities is that He is indicating that any person with good or bad qualities can reach him. The three faces of ‘Brahma’ ‘Vishnu’ and ‘Shiva’ indicate ‘Sattva’ ‘Rajas’ and ‘Tamas’ qualities. This means that God is associated with all the qualities, and He is called as ‘Saguna Brahma’. The word ‘Saguna’ means all the qualities. Since Rajas and Tamas represent bad qualities, two-thirds are only bad qualities. It means that people with bad qualities are more in number. The fans of Vishnu think that Vishnu is good because He is associated with Sattvam, Rajas is worse and Tamas is the worst. So, they say that Vishnu is the best and highest. They think that Brahma is lower and Shiva is worst.

These three forms are only the three dresses of the same ‘Lord Datta’. The [internal] God is the same and is untouched by these three qualities. The Gita says the same. The Veda says that Vishnu is Brahma and also Shiva. These three qualities are the three colored clothes of the same Lord. The colour of the cloth is not the colour of the person. A person is not touched by the colour of the cloth and the colour of the person is not affected. Sattvam is white, Rajas is red and Tamas is black. So the colour of Vishnu should be white and colour of Shiva must be black. But the colors are interchanged. Vishnu is black and Shiva is white. This means Vishnu and Shiva have exchanged their qualities. Shiva is sitting in meditation with a good quality. Vishnu is dancing with the Gopikas and it is a bad quality. Now tell me who is greater? So, Datta is the single God present in all these three divine forms.

He is not touched by any quality. Therefore, He is called as ‘Nirguna Brahma’. The colorless person is looking red, white and black due to those colors of his clothes. This form of Datta indicates that Bhakthi is untouched by good or bad qualities. Pure water is present in three glass cups with three different colors. The water is not coloured but appears to have a colour. Similarly the Bhakthi i.e., love on God appears to have the colour of the quality. But it is always pure and colourless.

So the person whether good or bad can reach the God through any path. When Bhakthi is present in the person and also present in the path, it is the driving force beyond good and bad qualities. Shiva with Tamas as a bad God invites the bad people in a bad path. Vishnu with Satva as good God invites all good people through good path. But remember onething, Vishnu and Shiva are one and the same. A good person and a bad person reach the same God because their Bhakti is one and the same. The three faces denote creation, administration and destruction of this universe by one and the same God. The Veda says that these are the three activities done by one and the same God called ‘Parabrahman’. So Datta is Parabrahman as per the Vedas. We have three Gurus Shankara, Ramanuja and Madhva. They are the incarnations of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma [respectively].

That means Datta came down as these three Gurus. So Datta indicates that He is the single Parabrahman present in the three divine forms called Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Datta further indicates that He is the Sadguru present in all the three Gurus. The voice of Datta is the single theory present in the commentaries of the three Gurus. Datta indicates that any living being is eligible to reach Him and get the salvation irrespective of his/its good and bad qualities. Datta also indicates that whether the path is good or bad, only the Bhakti is given value by Him. The Bhakthi should be real and pure without aspiring anything in return from Datta. A beggar comes to you and praises you a lot.

You are asking him to move away. But a guest is given all the comforts with special love. What is the difference between these two? The intention of the beggar is to get food from you but the intention of the guest is to see and talk with you. Since the intention differs the treatment differs. So come to Datta as a guest and not as a beggar. If your intention is only to love Datta without aspiring anything in return, Datta will give everything to you, as you are His guest.

So any human/living being in this world is eligible to have the admission into our Datta Religion irrespective of his good or bad qualities. Whatever qualities may be present in him or his path, he need not feel embarrassed when the quality is bad and need not feel proud if quality is good, provided he does not disturb the peace of the World. After entering into our Datta religion, you will be imparted knowledge (Jnana) by Lord Datta directly. This generates and also develops the devotion. This devotion real, selfless, proved love on Lord Datta will make you attain Datta.
The unique speciality here is Datta donates Himself to you and merges in you while you are alive. Datta means He who donates Himself to you. In other religions, you are merging with God after death. But here God merges with you when you are alive. ‘Datta religion’ is the actual material present in all the religions in the universe.

It is the water present in all the rivers and also exists separately as the ocean. All the rivers have to merge in the ocean. All the religions merge in this universal religion. Datta is the universal God and the Universal Guru. Datta is the universal love present in all the living beings and in all the spiritual paths. Datta is called the ‘Digambara’ which means the actor himself, who removed all the dresses of his roles and is present in his original and natural dress. Datta is also called as ‘Avadhoota’, which means if you taste Datta, all your bonds in this world with all the people and all the things will be thrown away.

Shirdi Sai Baba used to ask everybody for Guru Dakshina, which is only teaching ‘Karma Phala Tyaga’. Patil is the highest devotee, who used to give all the crop of the year, which is his required minimum. Baba used to give him some part back. This means, he left to the Lord to decide the quantity of minimum also! Baba told a rich person, who came in quest of Parabrahman ‘you could not give Rs.5/- to your Guru from your pocket. How can you know the Parabrahman? That rich man could not recognize the Lord before him present in human form. He was prepared to give one crore of rupees to his children, but not Rs.5/- to the Lord. The value of the Lord in his eyes is almost nothing. In his heart, there is no trace of love for Parabrahman. This is proved clearly by his karma phala (money).

The family bonds of Indians are very strong and they store money even for their grand grand children. They can donate only their mind (meditation), intelligence (logical discussion) and words (chanting and singing etc.,). Their love stored in their hearts like water in tanks flows into their bonds that are like side tubes. Not even a drop is left over in the heart for the Lord. Only Karma Phala Tyaga proves your love on the Lord. Atleast, luxuries can be cut and that can be subscribed as Guru Dakshina.

Saibaba used to distribute the Guru Dakshina to the devotees who are in need as he can only know who the deserving is. The human devotees err and waste, many a time. Guru is only Parabrahman and so Guru Dakshina means the fruit of your work (Karma Phala) offered to the Parabrahman in human form. Human form of God is only full form of God as it alone can give Darsanam (you can see), Sparsanam (you can touch), Sambhashanam (you can talk) and Sahavasa (you can live with Him). The Gita says ‘I come in human form’. All the four Vedas (Mahavakyas) say that the Parabhraman comes in human form and you have to recognize him by his special blissful knowledge and not by miracles. No devotee is greater than Hanuman and Radha. Hanuman became future Brahma.

Radha became the queen of the 15th uppermost Goloka. Both worshipped the human forms available in their time only viz. Rama and Krishna. Are you greater than Hanuman and Radha? He is impartial and so comes in human form for every generation to give the full satisfaction to devotees. Other forms like statues etc., which are useful to see only are only the intellectual means to avoid real Karma Phala tyaga, because you can show the food to a statue with your hand and eat the whole.

Guru means the human form of Lord Datta. Purnima means full moon. The Veda says, as in Shrisuktam ‘Chandram Hiranmayeem’ meaning Moon is the money that is Goddess Lakshmi and that is Karma Phala. Full moon also represents strong mind by which you have to sacrifice that to the Guru, who will utilize it correctly. Money in another form is the essence of work. Returning the stolen extra money back to the Lord can cancel that sin. Otherwise, ‘A camel may pass through the eye of the needle but a rich man can never reach God’.
Datta means He who donates Himself to undergo the sufferings of His deserving devotees. If you are ordered to pay fine by a judge, your father can pay that fine and can get you relieved from that punishment. Datta takes the human form for this purpose and undergoes sufferings really.

During the suffering, He should not use His power and avoid the experience of suffering. If He does so, it amounts to cheating the God of Justice. To get the real experience of the suffering, the human body he takes, should be following all the rules of the nature. His suffering process is continuous from birth till He leaves this human body. During this continuous process, His human body is continuously damaged. A high voltage current flows in His body when He gives divine visions that further damages the body.

You are associated with a few Karma Phalas only. But He is associated with several Karma Phalas of His devotees continuing from several births. You can weep while suffering but He should smile. If He leaves the suffering even for a minute He is not Datta in that minute. But Datta remains Datta always. He sits on the thorny throne. You see only the throne but not the thorns.

Datta is the practical aspect of God. ‘God is infinite bliss’ is the theoretical aspect of Brahman. The philosophers of Advaita attracted by the theoretical aspect, but once they come to know this practical aspect, they will like to remain in Dvaita only as servants of Datta.
