Norms of world & serving alive human form of God

To know that you are not God is as important as recognizing the contemporary human incarnation. If you feel that you are also God, there is no use of catching the alive human form of God. As a human being, you should follow the norms of the world and at the same time you should serve the alive human form of God after recognizing it. The first part of your behavior towards world is called as pravrutti and the simultaneous second part of your behavior towards the contemporary human incarnation is called as nivrutti. To preach both these aspects to the human beings, God Himself has taken simultaneous dual roles called as Rama and Hanuman.

Both are the incarnations of God but none felt that He is God. Even though the sages recognized Rama and praised Him as God, Rama denied their praise by saying that He is only a human being and knows Himself as Rama, the son of Dasaratha (Aatmanam manusham manye...). This indicates that you should never feel that you are God even though some ignorant preachers preach that you are God. Rama followed all the ethics, which are the commandments of God to the human beings regarding their behavior in the creation.

You should recognize the contemporary human incarnation

Rama preached all the values of the family life regarding the mutual loyalty of wife and husband, regarding the love to brothers and regarding the respect to be paid to the parents. Hanuman showed the path of nivrutti or spiritual line. The first and foremost point indicated by Hanuman is that you should recognize the contemporary human incarnation and serve Him with top most loyalty. Hanuman served Rama in His worldly affairs. This indicates that you should serve the human incarnation in the worldly affairs also.

You will be severely tested by the God in the human form

The next point is that you should serve the human incarnation in any state of worldly life since Hanuman served Rama, who was a householder. Rama exhibited His blind love towards His wife by running after golden deer in spite of the warning from Lakshmana. Rama showed His blind love towards His wife on another occasion also by saying that He will go back without killing Ravana if His wife was returned back to Him. This showed that Rama was not bothered about the atrocities of Ravana that would continue after returning Sita.

This showed that He was not interested in the welfare of the world and was only interested in His wife. Hanuman did not misunderstand Rama in such situation. Rama felt unconscious, when He was hit by Nagaastra and Hanuman got Him relieved by bringing Garuda from Heaven. Even after this, Hanuman did not mistake Rama as an ordinary human being. All this shows that you will be severely tested by the God in the human form regarding your faith in Him.

Another important aspect that you have to learn from Hanuman is that you should not feel yourself God by achieving some miraculous powers. Hanuman has all the miraculous powers by jumping the ocean, by bringing the huge hill by hand, etc. Rama behaved as a helpless human being and crossed the sea by a constructed bridge only. Hanuman did not mistake Rama as a human being. Therefore, miracles should not be the identity mark for recognizing God in human form. Even demons perform miracles. Therefore, you should behave like Rama in your family life and you should behave like Hanuman in your spiritual life. Both are perfect examples simultaneously in the dual roles of Rama and Hanuman.

Krishna performed several miracles but every miracle was for a serious need only. Demons perform miracles for exhibition of ego. Arjuna could not recognize Krishna as God even though He witnessed the miracles of Krishna. Arjuna recognized Krishna as God only after hearing ‘Gita’, the special knowledge. Arjuna knows even some miracles and also witnessed several demons performing miracles. Miracles are only for beginners in the spiritual line to show the existence of un-imaginable God through un-imaginable acts called as miracles.

Human incarnation will test your faith through severe activities
The impression of Arjuna was very much distorted due to the acts of Krishna in the childhood like stealing the butter and dancing with the girls. Arjuna openly criticized Krishna mentioning these activities in the context of protecting Gaya. All this indicates that the human incarnation will test your faith through severe activities. At any cost, your faith should not be shaken. Dharmaraja was always praising Krishna as God. But when Krishna asked him to tell a lie, Dharmaraja refused and failed in the test. Justice is not greater than God. In pravrutti, since there is no God, justice should be voted against the injustice. But, in nivrutti, God should be voted even against justice. Gopikas voted for God against the justice and reached a higher position than the highest.

God is greater than justice since He is the protector of the justice. You have to follow justice because it is commandment of God. In pravrutti, since there is no reference to God, justice stands in the highest position. You should keep Rama as an example for pravrutti. You should keep Hanuman and Gopikas as examples for nivrutti. Arjuna believed Krishna as God by hearing Gita. But, just after seventeen days, Arjuna did not get down from the chariot even though Krishna ordered to do so. This means that you should maintain the faith that was created by the special knowledge.
