Somewhat it is a personal question, .................. Pls consider me as your child (asking questions to you)........... reply me.......... i request if you post my question in your page........... post my words about your page and my question alone............ hide another things and my name too.............. REPLY: Thanks for yr appreciations. Only because of this sincerity of this page, it has more number of serious followers and is making records. If we serve sincerely, Krishna will be with us. I have to give some bold replies for this questions without hiding the facts. Our every scripture has great messages in them. So, how to classify them according to my tastes? It is a difficult task because for a devotee every word of praise about Lord must make him excited. The aspects that I like in every scripture is: 1. Sri Rama Navami Coincides today with this message. In Ramayana, the humbleness of Lord Rama towards parents, seniors , guru, etc. Obeyance of all His brothers to His words. The true example for a humble wife - Sita. If all husbands and wives are like that, how this world will be? Oh, unimaginable. And, the fall of a king though he is a learnt devotee of Lord Shiva. Rama’s acceptance of Vibeeshana. The role of birds, animals, etc to serve Lord Rama. The role of Hanumanji as a perfect example for a humble devotee who is always in the smaran of his master Rama. The approach of all other characters towards Sita - great. So, Ramayana is always great to learn how to lead a life full of dharma and peace. 2. Mahabharatha - This is full of the preaching of dharma with interesting incidences. In Mahabharatha, I have wondered an aspect that many do not reveal outside. Though Krishna who is the Supreme Lord was present in person, the kshatriyas, gopis, etc, worshipped Lord Shiva, Kali, etc in so many places. They did not shy to worship other gods though they were living with Krishna’s association. EVen gopis worshipped Shiva and Durga to get the association of Krishna. How wonderful this is! If we follow this culture in Mahabharatha, we will never insult Lord Shiva or Durga Devi or any other gods. This culture was established by Krishna in His Bhagavad Gita by explaining His vibhoodhis as Shiva, Karthikeya, etc. So, the credit of Mahabharatha is UNITY IN DIVERSITY AND NO HATRED AMONG WORSHIPPING GODS. 3. Then, you have asked about Puranas. I have some reservations about Puranas because, there are serious doubts about the original scripts of puranas. The original scripts have beed added with many interpretations, additions etc in later stage during Mohammedan or English period by some learnt brahmanas. Because, it is doubted that some predictions were believed to have been added after those incidents happened to show their authenticity. Because, these puranas are existing for hundreds of years ONLY THROUGH ORAL PREACHING, not in writing. So, many zonal brahmanas were believed to have added some extra and favourable descriptions in them. Saivaites, vaishnavaits, and loyalists of British rule added some additions giving superiority to their beliefs/ paths. These additions stopped only after Printing technology was started to be used because they were recorded. In spite of these doubts, we have to take the positive side of puranas. The puranas never encouraged conflict among diferent beliefs. Every purana was written to glorify a particular deity to keep the people engaged with that particular god and then come up in their devotional status. Puranas are just simplified versions of Vedic preachings. So, we need not bother about the doubts related to them. However, we can not deny that the parts of puranas could have been fabricated. Let it be. Let us get the extract of the message revealed by Puranas - Unity in diversity. So, If you like to folow Krishna, do not read all the puranas that will confuse you. Just read Bhagavatham that is the king of all the puranas. 4. However, Four Vedas remain without much fabrication even now though many parts of vedas have been lost. I just went through the contents of Vedas that made me wonder. Why? Because, the people are fighting among themselves claiming that only their god is supreme. But, Vedas, that are considered to be real authorities of the creations, creator, supreme truth, etc, and that gives both positive as well as negative effects of our every action, speak in a voice that will ensure peace in the society. vedas try to create a humble mindset because they praise every member of this creation like Agni, Trees, sky, water, seas, Vayu, etc. This creates harmony in our approach towards the creations and creators. Yes. Instead of getting confused, just read this PRIMARY ADVICE OF VEDAS that appears in both Rig and Sama vedas: SUPREME TRUTH IS “ONE”. THE PEOPLE CALL IT IN DIFFERENT NAMES. Wow....How wonderful this is! Why should not we follow this ultimate conclusion of vedas? This will avoid misconceptions, hatred, etc in the process of spiritual practices. So, you are calling that Supreme Truth as Krishna. be relieved. Do not ill-speak about other names. Because, if we speak against others’ beliefs, it is clearly against the ultimate vedic instruction mentioned above. So, though vedas describe some fruitive sadhanas, as far as Supreme Truth is concerned, they tell in an univocal voice: Supreme truth is One. I like this particular aspect in Vedas though I discourage following some of their fruitive advices. That is why, I never write against any other Gods, beliefs and paths. When I read this conclusion again and again, I feel a kind of PEACE in my heart. 5. As far as your other references are concerned, there are thousands of writings about spiritual practices by different acharyas. Though they give bliss while reading I get peace while reading the conclusion of vedas: SUPREME TRUTH IS “ONE”. THE PEOPLE CALL IT IN DIFFERENT NAMES. Let us follow it because, vedas are authorities based on which all puranas originated.'
