LET US NOT BE SELECTIVE IN OUR SPIRITUAL ANALYSIS - PART 3
There are many more examples of selective spiritual interpretation.
AS A CASE STUDY, in this third and final part of this 3 articles-series, let us take a look at some of the following glaring examples from Rampal’s books ‘PREBHAASHAA PRABHU KEE’ and ‘GAHAREE NAZAR GITA MAEN’:
1] Rampal quotes from Bible that the Prabhu ( Almighty) made Adam and Eve. He says that the Prabhu (Almighty) fools the devotees. But, he also says that the very fact that “the Bible tells that on the sixth day of the creation, PRABHU [GOD] made human being as his [Prabhu’s] own copy” proves that the Prabhu (Almighty) exists in a form similar to human beings! According to Rampal, his (Rampal’s) Almighty is Kabira, the saint…! He says that BHAGAWAN made human being his own copy and it proves that BHAGAWAN (ALLAH) IS IN AAKAAR [FORM] AND IS LIKE MANUSHYA [HUMAN BEINGS].
NOW JUST THINK: Rampal is trying to prove the existence of the Almighty in human form by quoting the statement from the Bible “that on the sixth day of the creation, PRABHU [GOD] made human being as his [Prabhu’s] own copy”. It means Rampal has accepted that the God/Almighty mentioned in Bible is his Almighty (Kabira)…! But, he says that the Prabhu (Almighty) fools the devotees. It means that his Prabhu (Kabira) fools the devotees…! WHY SHOULD ANY DEVOTEE FOLLOW RAMPAL’S KABIRA IF RAMPAL HIMSELF IS ADMITTING THAT KABIRA FOOLS THE DEVOTEES?
Rampal points out that the Prabhu mentioned in Bible wasn’t able to find Adam and Eve, so the Prabhu asked Adam and Eve as to where they were hiding. Rampal has shown this behaviour of Bible’s God to show that the God worshipped by the Christians isn’t the real God…! Nothing remains hidden from the real God…! At the same time, he selectively quotes the Bible that “on the sixth day of the creation, PRABHU [GOD] made human being as his [Prabhu’s] own copy” to prove the existence of the Almighty in human form…!
2] Rampal quotes the story of Naarada Munee in which Lord Vishnu makes Naarada Munee realize that he [Naarada] had yet not overcome the barrier of ILLUSION [MAAYAA], by confusing Naarada Munee by making him live a life as a woman...! In support of this story, Rampal quotes a couplet in Hindi saying that RAAMABALEE [RAAMA THE POWERFUL] confused Naarada Munee. The second line of this couplet says that Dhruva, Prahlada, Kabira, Namdeva, went to the marked/identified abode. Rampal has interpreted this line as follows: All saints went to the abode of their deities.
NOW JUST THINK:RAAMA and VISHNU refer to the same person. Kabira’s couplets refer to the Almighty as ‘RAAMA.’ That means the Lord Vishnu only is Kabira’s RAAMA…! The interpretation of the second line of the couplet by Rampal himself shows that Kabira went to the abode of his [Kabira’s] deity [RAAMA/Lord Vishnu]…IT’s REALLY AMAZING TO SEE RAMPAL AND HIS PRECEDING KABIRA-PANTHA GURUUS CLAIMING THAT KABIRA WASN’T A WORSHIPPER OF LORD VISHNU…!
SINCE KABIRA WAS A GREAT DEVOTEE OF LORD VISHNU, IT SEEMS LIKELY THAT THE LORD VISHNU HIM SELF ONLY MANIFESTS AS KABIRA TO THE DEVOTEES/FOLLOWERS OF KABIRA AND KABIRA-PANTHA GURUUS….!
3] Rampal quotes extensively from Garibadas’ book “Granth Saahaeb” to show all other spiritual masters and religions/sects as being inferior to Kabira/Kabira-Pantha…! I HAVE READ CAREFULLY ALL THESE EXAMPLES AND STORIES QUOTED FROM GARIBDAS’S BOOK BY RAMPAL. IN THE LIGHT OF MY OWN SPIRITUAL EXPERIENES, I CAN SAY WITH FULL CONFIDENCE THAT IT IS CLEAR THAT THE BOOK WRITTEN BY GARIBDAS IS A CURIOUS STRANGE MIXTURE OF FACTS AND FICTIONS…!
(i) GARIBADAS HAS TRIED TO MALIGN PROPHET MOHAMMAD AND ISLAM BY NARRATING CURIOUS STORIES LIKE THE ONE SAYING THAT MOHAMMAD HAD THE SKIN OF HIS PENIS PEELED OFF ON THE ORDERS OF HIS WIFE BECAUSE OF ADULTERY BY MOHAMMAD. GARIBDAS GOES ON SAYING THAT THE FOLLOWERS OF ISLAM WERE MISLED INTO THE PRACTICE OF PEELING OFF THE SKIN OF PENIS BY MOHAMMAD TO HIDE HIS OWN ADULTERY.
(ii) Garibadas reduces RAABIA/RABIA, the great Islamic lady-saint to nothing by narrating a false story that Rabia underwent 4 births: first as a lady saint, then as a wife of an officer, then as a female prostitute, finally as a small girl named KAMAALEE whom Kabira the saint brought back to life after she had been put into the grave yard by her father Shaikh Taki…
NOW JUST THINK: IT SEEMS TO BE A FACT THAT ALL GREAT MUSLIM SAINTS WHO DIE FOLLOW TWO OUTCOMES:
(i) THEY CONTINUE TO WORSHIP THE ALLAH/ALMIGHTY IN THEIR OWN TOMBS/GRAVES, WAITING FOR THE DAY OF THE FINAL JUDGEMENT.
(ii) OR ELSE THEY ATTAIN ETERNAL LIFE BY MERGING WITH THE SUPREME DIVINE LIGHT…!
RAABIA WAS A GREAT ENLIGHTENED SOUL AND AS SUCH THERE WAS NO CHANCE OF HER GETTING REBORN…! STORY BY GARIBA DAS IS JUST A PLAIN IMAGINERY WORK…!
 Rampal says that the KAAL/GOD OF EVIL FORCES spoke GITA from the mouth of Lord Krishna. In support of this conclusion, he says that Krishna had shown VERAAT SWARUUPA in Duryodhana’a court dazzling the eyes of all the courtiers, but (1) same Krishna later showed a VERAAT SWARUUPA on the battlefield of Kurukshetra also and tells Arjuna that no one except Arjuna had seen it before. (2) Same Krishna later after battle of Kurukshetra rebuked Arjuna, on being asked to repeat Gita and told Arjuna that he[Krishana] had shown him VERAAT SWARUUPA on the battlefield of Kurukshetra with the help of YOGA-POWER and that now it seemed near impossible to recollect the same…!
Rampal and his preceding Guruus have argued that it should have been possible for Krishna to repeat the Gita message later also when a writer like Ved Vyas could write about it in full details centuries later…! They impatiently hasten to add that it was the KAAL OR THE GOD OF EVIL FORCES WHO HAD ENTERED THE BODY OF VED VYAS AND WRITTEN ABOUT GITA MESSAGE…!
NOW JUST THINK:
(i) We all know that we don’t remember exactly what we said or did a few months back. So, it was quite natural if Krishna expressed his inability to repeat the same exactly as it was.
(ii) ANY TRUE SAINT WHO UNDERSTANDS THE CONCEPT OF THE TATTAVA [ABSOLUTE] KNOWS THAT the Individual’s level of consciousness does not remain on the same level all the time. Krishna had spoken Gita in a state of a very high level of consciousness with the help of YOGA-POWER [KUNDALINI SHAKTE]. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT AT A MUCH LATER TIME, KRISHNA’s LEVEL OF INDIVIDUAL CONSCIOUNESS HAD GONE DOWN BECAUSE OF WHICH IT BECAME NEAR IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO RECOLLECT EXACTLY THE GITA MESSAGE…! THIS EXPLAINS AS TO WHY KRISHNA AS A GROWN UP PERSON HAD TO FLEE TO DWARKA FROM MATHURA DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE AS A CHILD HAD DEFEATED AND KILLED MIGHTY DEMONS…!
(iii) Ved Vyas could centuries later write exactly the Gita message as it had been spoken by Krishna at Kurukshetra. POSSIBLY, VED VYAS COULD DO IT BECAUSE HIS INDIVIDUAL CONSCIOUSNESS LEVEL HAD RISEN UPTO SUCH A HIGH LEVEL WHERE IT BECAME POSSIBLE FOR HIM TO GO IN THE PAST AND SEE THE EXACT DETAILS OF THE BATTLEFIELD AT Kurukshetra…! Ved Vyas WAS A SAINT WRITER. MANY SAINTS THOSE DAYS DID HAVE THE POWER OF OMNISCIENCE – THE SUPERNATURAL ABILITY TO LOOK INTO PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE…!
5] Rampal has selectively quoted from Islamic literature like Quran and FAJAAELAE AAMAAL, where the word Kabira seems to have been used for the Almighty, to try to prove that the saint Kabira only is referred to as Allah.
NOW JUST THINK: Many children today have the name Krishna. It does not mean that the mention of the word Krishna in Puraanas and Mahabharata refer to these children whose name is Krishna. IT IS SIMPLY A COINCIDENCE. SIMILARLY, THE MENTION OF THE WORD KABIRA IN ISLAMIC LITERATURE IS PURELY A COINCIDENCE AND DOES NOT REFER TO THE SAINT KABIRA OF THE KABIRA-PANTHA…!
6] Rampal says that the saints having a great heart do not say bad words about others. BUT, he himself has shown disrespect to the monks of GIRI sect in India by referring to Bhasmasura the demon as BHASMAGIRI. HE TELLS THAT ONCE UPON A TIME A GREAT DEVOTED GIRI MONK WORSHIPPED LORD SHIV, APPEASED HIM, GOT THE BOON AND BECAME A DEMON TURNING INTO BHASMAGIRI…!
NOW JUST THINK: Everyone knows that Bhasmasura was a demon and that he was not a follower of the GIRI sect of the Indian monks. Yet, Rampal has shown meanness of heart by associating Bhasmasura with the much respected GIRI sect of Indian monks…!
7] Rampal quotes a 1991 incident when thousands of KAAWANREEYAS [who bring holy water from river Ganges] who had gathered at the NEELAKANTHA temple were crushed to death under the falling rocks. HE SAYS THAT LORD SHIV WOULD NOT HAVE LET THIS INCIDENT HAPPEN IF SHIV LIKED BRINGING OF GANGES WATER BY KAAWANREEYAS.
NOW JUST THINK: RAMPAL’S OWN AASHRAMA AT KARONTHA WAS RAIDED BY HARYANA POLICE IN THE PAST ON SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS OF NUMEROUS SERIOUS MISDOINGS…! APPLYING RAMPAL’S OWN LOGIC, SHOULD WE SAY - HIS ALMIGHTY KABIRA THE SAINT WOULD NOT HAVE LET THIS INCIDENT OF POLICE RAID ON KARONTHA AASHRAM HAPPEN IF KABIRA THE SAINT HAD LIKED SPIRITUALLY THE SELECTIVE MISANALYSIS AND MISINTERPRETATIONS BEING DONE BY RAMPAL HIMSELF?
8] Rampal quotes from the imaginary Kabira-literature that the Goddess Durga [Ashtaangee] was a beautiful young girl with whom KAAL OR THE GOD OF EVIL FORCES wanted to have sex. Knowing KAAL’s intention the girl entered his [KAAL’s] stomach and prayed to Kabira to save her honour. Kabira came as Jogjeeta, took the girl out of KAAL’s stomach. KAAL got banished to a farther more distance and Jogjeeta returned. Again, KAAL became tempted. The young girl requested not to spoil her honour. She pleaded that she was his own daughter and sister. But, KAAL did not listen to her. Till then, Durga had no vagina or sex-organ. He made or dug vagina in Durga’s female body using nails of his own hands. He forcibly had sex with the young girl against her wishes. She conceived and gave birth to Brhma, Vishnu and Shankara.
NOW JUST THINK:
(i) IF KABIRA THE SAINT, CLAIMED TO BE THE ALMIGHTY BY RAMPAL, WERE REALLY LOVING, AFFECTIONATE, CARING AND PROTECTIVE, HE [KABIRA] WOULD AGAIN COME BACK AND SAVE THE YOUNG GIRL FROM BEING RAPED BY KAAL…! BUT, KABIRA DID NOT COME AGAIN AND DID NOT SAVE DURGA AGAIN FROM BEING RAPED BY KAAL…! IS THERE ANY REALLY AFFECTIONATE, LOVING, CARING AND PROTECTIVE FATHER IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD LET HIS OWN DAUGHTER BE RAPED AGAINST HER OWN WISHES? ...NONE!
(ii) THE KABIRA-LITERATURE IS A BLEND OF FACTS AND FICTION OR IMAGINATION….THAT’s WHY IT HAS SHOWN FALSELY THE GODDESS DURGA [ASHTAANGEE] IN POOR LIGHT…KABIRA AND HIS FOLLOWERS HAVE FAILED TO UNDERSTAND THE DURGA TATTVA…!
WHY HAVE I QUOTED SO EXTENSIVELY FROM RAMPAL’S BOOKS?
……..WELL, I don’t wish false imaginations about the Supreme Consciousness or Almighty or the ABSOLUTE [TATTVA] to prevail and fool the genuine spiritual seekers.
AS POULUS THE INSPIRED SAYS IN HIS SECOND LETTER IN THE NEW TESTAMENT [10.5, page number 264, Nayaa Neyam (The New Testament)’, Hindi – O.V., 1968 Edition, published by the Biblical Society of India A/I Mahatma Gandhi Road, Bangalore for Gideons International], “…….SO, WE REFUTE (THOSE) IMAGINATIONS AND EACH THAT TALL TALK THAT COMES UP AGAINST THE (TRUE) IDENTITY OF THE ALMIGHTY (SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS)….”
THE TRUTH IS: YOU CAN ATTAIN SPIRITUAL LIBERATION BY FOLLOWING ANY SPIRITUAL PATH, SECT OR RELIGION IF YOU HAVE UNDERSTOOD PROPERLY THE CONCEPT OF THE TATTVA [ABSOLUTE]…! I HAVE ALREADY EXPLAINED THE CONCEPT OF THE TATTVA IN ONE OF MY ARTICLES EARLIER.
SUFFICE TO SAY – LOVE EACH HUMAN BEING AS YOUR OWN. DO RESPECT THE EXISTENCE OF OTHERS. DON’T BE SELECTIVE IN YOUR SPIRITUAL ANALYSIS…!
