None is greater than the creator, ruler and final destroyer of this universe. I am the creator, ruler and destroyer of this creation. You can worship Me in different ways as per the convenience of your mind. Don’t go against your mind in selecting the mode of worship since all modes are one and the same worship.

Reading divine books, singing divine songs, dancing with divine modes, saluting God, going round the statue of God, seeing divine cinemas, looking My photos, hearing My stories, participating in divine debates and discussions, writing about Me, speaking about Me to others and propagating Me and My knowledge in the world are the different modes of My worship. Do not insult any divine form of God including formless God since a formless lump has also a form. Formless God is also a lump form and is the medium of God only since God is unimaginable beyond form and formless media.

Do not criticize any divine preacher or divine human incarnation in anyway. Think about your level before criticizing others. You should not criticize any mode of worship. Selection of mode of worship depends upon the specific liking of mind, which differs from one person to the other. If somebody is defective in the spiritual path, explain the truth by friendly discussion and don’t enter into hot arguments. Forms of God may be different and paths to reach God also may be different, but, God is only one and the same in every sub-religion or religion.

The quantity (weight) of gold submitted by you matters for sanction of your loan by bank and not the variety of golden jewels submitted. How much fruit of work is sacrificed by you? How much energy is spent by you in the service? How much time could be allotted by you in His work?—are the various branches of your spiritual tree and the main stem of the tree is how much you are withdrawn from the aspiration of fruit in return from God?

Generally, mind requires variety because it is unstable in one mode. It is a flowing stream of nervous energy with constant motion of waves. It likes different forms of God and different modes of worship in different times. Since the ultimate value depends on practical service and practical sacrifice only, as long as the value is maintained, variety does not matter at all.

For the same amount of money, you may purchase one item or many items as per their individual rates. As long as the mind is interested, you can continue with a specific form in a specific mode of worship only for any length of time. Whether you are towards north direction (God) or towards south direction (world) - is the most important point. In each direction (North or south) there are different sub-directions ranging from east to west and each sub-direction is in different levels.

Variety doesn’t matter since change of variety is the nature of mind. If you maintain the quality of devotion (Non aspiration for fruit in return), quantity of devotion (allotting more time, energy and fruit of work), direction of devotion (theory transforming in to practice), relevance of devotion (concentrating on the relevant contemporary human incarnation) and level of devotion (ability to sacrifice anything and anyone for the sake of God), the spiritual path becomes fruitful.

Any path directed towards Me is the best and any path diverted towards the world is the worst. No path by itself is good or bad. The paths directed towards world may differ within themselves as relatively good (justice) or bad (injustice) and this relative difference is limited to the area of the world (Pravrutti) only as long as the direction to God (Nivrutti) doesn’t come into the picture. God is greater than even the welfare of the world and this point is tested by God in the case of divine servants working for the welfare of the world.

You must work for welfare of the world since such welfare is liked by God. As a Nivrutti-devotee, you should not keep the welfare of the world above God. The Veda says that nothing and nobody is even equal to God and not to speak of more than God (Natatsamah…). In the earlier stage, try to serve Me adjusting yourself to the external atmosphere (your family and society) and the varying nature of mind.

You should not hurt any soul for My sake and you should reach Me rejecting everything and everyone by not hurting anyone even a little. You can adopt the method of dramatic action for this purpose like anesthesia in performing surgery, which is not a sin at all since I am the goal.

Universal Spirituality or Universal Religion is like the central government of India and the specific religion followed by any person, is like the state government of any one state in India. The citizen belongs to both the central and state governments simultaneously. This means that you can be a follower of Universal Religion while still being a follower of your own religion. Universal Religion pervades all religions in the world. It means that you can continue to follow your own religion. There is no need to convert to any other religion. The important point you have to learn from Universal Religion is that you should never criticize other religions. The same God appeared in different forms at different places, in different times. Each time the form taken up by Him was according to the specific culture of each place. He preached the same spiritual knowledge in different languages. All religions have some merits and some defects. The merits are due to the original preaching of God whereas the defects are due to wrong ideas introduced by the followers later on. You have to be selective and pick only the merits of all religions.

Each religion has its own special merits that are seen prominently in that religion. It does not mean other religions do not have those merits but it is just that they are more prominently seen in a certain religion. Spiritual knowledge is the merit of Hinduism. Knowledge is the intellectual part of the spiritual effort which is called jñāna yoga. Devotion to God, which is known as bhakti yoga, is the merit of Islam. It is the emotional part of the spiritual effort. The practical part of the spiritual effort is service and donation.

Donation of one’s hard-earned money is said to be the sacrifice of the fruit of one’s work. Service and donation together are called karma yoga and it is the merit of Christianity. Purifying one’s devotion to God by making it free of any worldly aspiration or desire is the merit of Buddhism. Practicing non-violence towards all souls is the merit of Jainism. Apart from the various religions, science too has its merit and it has a place in Universal Spirituality. The sharp analysis of any concept without blind belief is the merit of science.

Thus, on your spiritual journey towards God, you must pick the merits of all religions. Universal Religion or Universal Spirituality is not a specific religion to be listed along with the religions of the world. It is meant for the establishment of peace and harmony in this world. Since I am born as Hindu, I follow My religion. But I realize that all other religions are the equally-correct paths starting from different directions but all leading to the same God at the center. The six religions or philosophies mentioned above are like six bottles containing the same medicine of spiritual knowledge. Secularism means consuming the medicine-like spiritual knowledge from any one of the six bottles, realizing that the same medicine is present in all the six bottles. But the so-called secularism of today is false secularism. It rejects all religions. It is like saying that since all the bottles contain the same medicine, there is no need to consume the medicines from any of them!

Universal spirituality is the solution for these problems.. The Universal Spirituality is the basic universal knowledge or philosophy. The one God, who created this entire creation and who is the kind Father of all humanity, preached the same common universal knowledge to people in different places and times. The Universal Religion is the universal practical path of worshipping that one God and maintaining justice and peace in the world. The mode of worship is a part of culture and the variations in it are a matter of personal choice. The spirituality and religion are thus the theoretical and practical parts of the spiritual path and both are universal.
Universal Spirituality and Universal Religion have been established by God Datta now through this Datta Swami. Earlier, Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa had experienced the unity of all religions by practicing every religion for some time. Śaṅkara had similarly, established the unity of all the sub-religions within Hinduism. Shri Shirdi Sai Baba and Shri Satya Sai Baba too had established the unity of world religions. Every religion will lead a person to the same God. So, conversion to another religion is the biggest foolishness that any devotee can do. When all roads lead to the same center, is it not the height of foolishness to leave your road and laterally cross over to another road that leads to the same center? Good times for this entire world are very near. This Universal Spirituality and Religion will bring tremendous unity among all religions. You said that you are following the philosophy of Hinduism. In the spiritual knowledge or philosophy there is no name of any religion since knowledge is always universal.

Parents take complete care of their children during their childhood. The efforts taken by the parents for their children is service, which is also known as the sacrifice of work. Finally, the parents also transfer all their wealth to their children through their will. This transferring of the wealth is called the sacrifice of the fruit of their work since wealth is the fruit of work. So, the sacrifice of the parents for the sake of their children in terms of the sacrifice of work and the fruit of work is complete. Yet most parents save some wealth for their own old age believing that they will live until they become old. They feel there is a risk in sacrificing their entire wealth to their issues while they are still alive. There is a possibility that if their children are not good, they might not take care of the parents in the future when the parents become old. Sometimes, even if the children are good they could be incapable of serving their parents due to some unfortunate circumstances.
The case of God is different from one’s children. God is not bad; He is extremely good. He is also never incapable. In fact, He is omnipotent. Another important difference is that while one’s children are seen with one’s eyes, God is not seen.

There is insecurity for those who depend on the children who are seen by their eyes. But there is complete security for those who depend on the unseen God. Ignorant souls only believe in perception. Giving more importance to their unreliable children who are seen, they shower their real love upon the children. The proof of real love is karma yoga. The sacrifice of work and the fruit of work together are called karma yoga. It is the proof of real love since we practically serve and sacrifice our money only for those whom we truly love. Ignorant people truly love only their children and so they do this karma yoga only for their children who are unreliable. They do not truly love God and they do not do karma yoga for Him even though He is supremely reliable, just because He is unseen. Real devotees are the ones who believe in God through inference. They believe in the unseen, unimaginable God by observing His miracles which are visible but unimaginable. Inference, of course, includes perception since the miracles are perceived. This mentality of the majority of human beings is the climax of blind ignorance. Such blind ignorance is actually not based on either perception or inference but is based only on solidified worldly fascination!
Not only can one adopt any mode of worship, but one can also pray to any form of God belonging to any religion, based on one’s personal liking. The different forms of God of various religions are not different since the one and only God exists in every one of them. When this is the truth of even the forms of God in different religions, then what to speak of the different modes of prayer in religions?
One can adopt any mode of prayer of any religion if you like it. This is the basic right of every person in the Universal Religion, which is based on Universal Spirituality.

Doing the ritual-sacrifice (feeding hungry devotees with ghee-fried food and not burning ghee in the physical fire), singing divine songs, meditation, reading spiritual books, participating in spiritual discussions, seeing My pictures, etc., are various ways of My worship. You can engage Yourself in any way as per the convenience of Your mind and external atmosphere. Similarly, You can worship any form of Me as You like.

Whatever may be the form and whatever may be the way, Your interest should be spontaneous love and not by force due to desire for some fruit. I like such natural devotion only. The devotion due to interest in fruit is not natural and I hate it. Such devotion for fruit is like the false love expressed by a prostitute for Your money. As Your love appears on Your life partner and children in natural and spontaneous way without any force, such true love is liked by Me. For the expression of true love, there is no specific place, specific time and specific way of expression.

As You are expressing Your true love on Your beloved issue in any place at any time and in any way using spontaneous words, You shall worship Me in the same way. Are You reciting any previously written dialogue before Your issue to express Your true love? Why are You reciting previously written prayers before Me? As You are not aspiring any fruit in return from Your issue, so also, if You don’t aspire any fruit from Me, Your worship will be natural and spontaneous.
All the above ways please Me. But, participation in My service by doing propagation of My spiritual knowledge is directly the salvation itself. Hence, only a salvated soul can participate in My service. Today, the right direction to be obtained by true knowledge is missing and hence, the need of this hour is propagation of My spiritual knowledge. My service is not an effort to please Me, but, it is the fruit given by Me for Your spiritual effort!

The unimaginable God and His unimaginable power (māyā) are one and the same, whereas God’s imaginable power is different from Him. It has undergone modification to become creation (prakṛti) or it appears to be creation. How the unimaginable God possesses an imaginable power, which is different from Him, is unimaginable. Such a wonder is possible only due to His unimaginable power! Our logical analysis and entire knowledge are limited only to this creation, which is the imaginable domain. Hence, it is a waste of time to think about any aspect of the unimaginable domain.

This world, which is the imaginable domain, has plurality. The plurality supplies different media for the unimaginable God for His expression. It enables Him to enter into various selected human devotees in order to become Human Incarnations of God. The human devotee becomes a medium for the entry of the unimaginable God. Thus, God has incarnated in this world in different regions in different times to establish the different religions in the world. Of course, the unimaginable God does not directly enter any medium.

At the very beginning of creation, the unimaginable God first created subtle energy or space. He created the first form or body out of that subtle energy and entered into it to become the first Energetic Incarnation. This first energetic form became the first medium of God. This first mediated form of God or the first Energetic Incarnation is called as Datta or Īśvara in Hinduism and Father of heaven in other religions. There is no trace of difference between the unimaginable God and the first Energetic Incarnation, except that the former is unimaginable while the latter is imaginable. The energetic form of Datta is visible to energetic beings in the upper worlds.

For humans on earth, Datta is invisible but still imaginable. The first Energetic Incarnation, Datta, is also eternal like the unimaginable God; i.e. both have no end. The only difference is that Datta had a beginning from the point of view of His energetic medium, while the unimaginable God has no beginning. It is this Datta that enters a selected human devotee to become a Human Incarnation. The unimaginable God is permanently present in the energetic medium of Datta. That Datta, containing the unimaginable God, enters into the physical medium of a human devotee. Thus, the unimaginable God is equally present in the Human Incarnation.

God incarnates in human form on earth in every human generation. The human media into which God Datta enters each time is different as a result of the plurality that is inherent in the imaginable domain. In other words, one Incarnation looks different from another Incarnation. One Incarnation may appear in a place where people follow say Hinduism, while another Incarnation may appear in a place where people follow a different religion. The Incarnation’s external dress, language, and manners will naturally be according to the culture of the place where He has appeared. This enables Him to mix freely with the people He has come to preach and uplift. But these differences are only external.

From the point of view of the first Energetic Incarnation, Datta or Father of heaven, present in each of them, all Incarnations are one and same. From the point of view of the unimaginable God present in all the Incarnations too, they are one and the same. Thus, all these different mediated Gods are actually one in essence. If you look at the medium, which is part of the imaginable domain, there is plurality. If you look at the internal God Datta or the unimaginable God present in all of them, then there is only one. This truth applies equally to the sub-religions within Hinduism or the different world religions. This analysis is the fundamental basis for bringing unity among the sub-religions of Hinduism and among the various religions in the world.

The unimaginable God is beyond space and time and He remains unimaginable due to this reason only. From the unimaginable God, imaginable space etc., were generated, which form this entire imaginable world. In the worldly logic, there is no single example of generation of imaginable item from unimaginable item because in the imaginable domain (world), there is no unimaginable item at all — like this, if one realizes, let him belong to Eastern religion or Western religion, such a person is omniscient. This is My logical conclusion.

The unimaginable God created subtle energy or space so that an energetic body is created from subtle energy and remaining subtle energy is in the form of space, which is occupied by the created energetic body to be called as absolute space since such first energetic body will never disappear. The unimaginable God enters this first energetic body called as first energetic incarnation or Eshwara or Lord or Father of heaven (Allah/Narayana/Yahewah etc) called as Datta meaning that the unimaginable God is ‘given’ to the world for clear vision. Such incarnation is called as descended God because the omnipotent unimaginable God can alone cross the unimaginable link between God and space to come down. This first energetic body bound by space can’t cross this link to become ascended body. This first energetic incarnation enters other energetic bodies and human bodies to become energetic and human incarnations respectively in future.
This Father of heaven merged by unimaginable God creates the five elements and souls gradually due to His unimaginable power, which form this entire world — like this, if one realizes, let him belong to Eastern religion or Western religion, such a person is omniscient. This is My logical conclusion.
The first energetic incarnation along with merged unimaginable God is the common item in every medium and thus, same God is common in all religions even though media differ. Hence, only one God exists in all religions. Religion is the path to please the same one God. Religions differ due to the difference in the level, language, culture, etc., of different souls in different regions. The starting point or soul and ending point or God are same in every religion. Hinduism with many sub-religions is a mini representative model of world with various religions and in both (sub-religions of Hinduism and religions of world), we find internal unity in external diversity — like this, if one realizes, let him belong to Eastern religion or Western religion, such a person is omniscient. This is My logical conclusion.


Unity of Worldly Religions:

The unimaginable God gets mediated by different imaginable media (items of imaginable creation) becoming different mediated Gods of various worldly religions. The difference is only in the external imaginable media and not in the internal unimaginable God. This is the unity in diversity. When two countries are disconnected in the past time, let us assume that a religion came in one country, which didn’t reach the other disconnected country immediately in which several generations have gone without knowing the religious Gospel of God in the other country. The souls of these generations have gone to hell unnecessarily for their no fault since the other religion didn’t reach them. The other religion says that the people, who didn’t follow their Gospel will go to hell. Is it not partiality of God to a specific country? The other religion says that their God created this earth and all the humanity on it. Then, why is this partiality of Divine Father to a specific country without reason? Good and bad people exist in every country. The other religion can’t answer this question. But, we answer this, removing the rubbed partiality on God.

Our answer is—the unimaginable God came to every country in a specific imaginable medium and preached the same syllabus of spiritual knowledge in their languages. Those, who followed the syllabus (not language) go to God and those who deviate from syllabus go to hell. By this, no injustice happened to anybody of any generation in any disconnected country due to lack communication. Hence, there is no partiality of the one unimaginable God! Every religion says that their God (by virtue of a specific medium of God) alone created this earth. Unfortunately, there is only one earth!, which means that only one God must have existed. That one God is the inner unimaginable God, who is not seen (not even imagined) by any religious soul since the soul sees only the different external media and gets clutched in the false concept of different Gods.

One can follow own religion, even in conservative way, without criticising other religions. To avoid this split, ‘Universal Religion’ stands as the Central Government and every human being is in its own religion only as under the State Government (one’s own religion is the state). Being in your own religion, you can affiliate to Universal Religion since both are complimentary to each other. Swami gave correlation of the Veda, the Bible and the Quran in detail as can be seen in the above referred website.



? Every human being is having a bad habit of looking at his own merits and looking at the defects of others. This is egoism mixed with ignorance and is very difficult to be cured like diabetes associated with blood pressure! Anybody looking at his own defects and looking at the merits of others will always rise up. Similarly, any human being always looking at his merits and looking at the defects of others will go down only.

Every religion shall avoid the self-praise and criticism of other religions. All religions have both merits and defects because any human being in any country belonging to any religion has both merits and defects. Every human being shall belong to the universal religion to pick up only the merits from each religion and progress towards God in the spiritual path that contains only merits. Truth is always bitter and the preacher following truth can’t avoid the simultaneous bitterness. Saint Kabir says that the enemy scolding you is your real well-wisher whereas the friend praising you is not your real well-wisher!

Why preachings of various divine personalities seems to be different?


All the divine preachers are incarnations of the same God. Then, why differences appear in their preachings? The differences are due to the differences in the receivers (disciples) existing in their times. If simply, the same truth is announced in all the times to receivers of different mentalities, such preachings are not heard by the disciples like the deaf not hearing the conch shells blown! The disciples will listen only if the preachings are liked by their defective psychologies. Without listening the concepts, realization can’t come like without eating, digestion can’t take place! A scholar simply bothers about preaching the truth only, whatever may be the result. A preacher (Guru) twists the concept for the sake of listening and subsequent assimilation in the disciples. Twist is temporary and the string twisted comes back to the original state in no time. Gradually, the truth comes back to its original stage as the receiver climbs upper step. Unless these twists made due to different psychologies of receivers are explained in view of the times in which divine preachers appeared, the twists will continue as permanent deformations of the truth and this leads anybody not to believe that all these divine personalities are incarnations of same God. The Veda says that the same truth is spoken in several ways (twists) by preachers (ekam sat vipraa bahudaa vadanti).

The reasons and circumstances for such variation in the speeches of the preachers are explained by God Datta to bring unification in the divine preachers resulting in the unification of all concepts of spiritual knowledge for the sake of welfare of entire humanity (Sutras 32 and 33 are in the context of the criticism of Shri Datta Swami by one advaita philosopher).]

While preaching spiritual knowledge, one preacher gives a simile to explain a certain point for the sake of the receiver’s effective understanding. The disciple of another preacher, who has come later on, criticizes that simile,pointing at the inapplicable side of that simile. Whenever a simile is given, one should only take the applicable side of the simile. Otherwise, it brings misunderstanding and leads to confusions, differences, and quarrels.


Every divine preacher in this world belonging to any religion is My Incarnation alone. I incarnate in every generation to remove the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the concepts in spiritual knowledge made by the followers of previous religions. As I remove the misinterpretations by the proper correlation of concepts, the followers of every religion invent some new misinterpretations of other religions. This makes Me come again and again into this world in the form of Incarnations.


There are two levels, which are the level of God (paramārthadaśā) and the level of the soul (vyavahāradaśā). Both these levels should be studied independently. They should not be mixed since the imaginable soul is not the unimaginable God. My Incarnation shows that the unimaginable God becomes the imaginable soul for the purpose of expressing Himself to the imaginable souls. The Incarnation serves the purpose of preaching the true spiritual knowledge to souls, which is especially necessary in the context of such misunderstanding due to misinterpretations.

There is only one God for this entire universe
The universal religion


Difference is only due to external parameters, but, basically unity exists.


[All major religions like Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Science must be appreciated for contributing the major concepts of universal religion. There is only one God for this entire universe, who is unimaginable being the creator of space and hence, existing beyond space. Plurality is accepted only in imaginable items and it can’t be accepted in unimaginable items. Any number of unimaginable items result in one unimaginable item only. You can’t say that one unimaginable item is fighting or co-existing with another unimaginable item. Hence, there can be only one unimaginable God in all the mediated Gods of all religions.

Unimaginable God gets mediated by different media (parts of creation) for expression for the sake of different people speaking different languages and following different cultures. To become close to all the souls, the unimaginable God speaks different languages and follows different cultures when He gets mediated by different media in different places at the same time. All the people should recognize the same unimaginable God (unity) in different media (difference). The philosophies of all religions are spoken by the same unimaginable God and hence, must be same basically. These philosophies also differ externally because God follows the different psychologies of receivers in different places in different times resulting in multiplicity of external philosophy of different religions in various places. In the same religion also, different external philosophies appear in different times. Due to different psychologies of different types of people of the same religion, in the same place and in the same time also, different external philosophies appear.

A wise person must understand all these external parameters to realize the cause of difference without leaving the basic unity.]

Welcome back dattaswami1, its been quite some time since you've posted here. On your posit below, no rebuttal from me.


None is greater than the creator, ruler and final destroyer of this universe. I am the creator, ruler and destroyer of this creation. You can worship Me in different ways as per the convenience of your mind. Don’t go against your mind in selecting the mode of worship since all modes are one and the same worship.

Reading divine books, singing divine songs, dancing with divine modes, saluting God, going round the statue of God, seeing divine cinemas, looking My photos, hearing My stories, participating in divine debates and discussions, writing about Me, speaking about Me to others and propagating Me and My knowledge in the world are the different modes of My worship. Do not insult any divine form of God including formless God since a formless lump has also a form. Formless God is also a lump form and is the medium of God only since God is unimaginable beyond form and formless media.

Do not criticize any divine preacher or divine human incarnation in anyway. Think about your level before criticizing others. You should not criticize any mode of worship. Selection of mode of worship depends upon the specific liking of mind, which differs from one person to the other. If somebody is defective in the spiritual path, explain the truth by friendly discussion and don’t enter into hot arguments. Forms of God may be different and paths to reach God also may be different, but, God is only one and the same in every sub-religion or religion.

The quantity (weight) of gold submitted by you matters for sanction of your loan by bank and not the variety of golden jewels submitted. How much fruit of work is sacrificed by you? How much energy is spent by you in the service? How much time could be allotted by you in His work?—are the various branches of your spiritual tree and the main stem of the tree is how much you are withdrawn from the aspiration of fruit in return from God?

Generally, mind requires variety because it is unstable in one mode. It is a flowing stream of nervous energy with constant motion of waves. It likes different forms of God and different modes of worship in different times. Since the ultimate value depends on practical service and practical sacrifice only, as long as the value is maintained, variety does not matter at all.

For the same amount of money, you may purchase one item or many items as per their individual rates. As long as the mind is interested, you can continue with a specific form in a specific mode of worship only for any length of time. Whether you are towards north direction (God) or towards south direction (world) - is the most important point. In each direction (North or south) there are different sub-directions ranging from east to west and each sub-direction is in different levels.

Variety doesn’t matter since change of variety is the nature of mind. If you maintain the quality of devotion (Non aspiration for fruit in return), quantity of devotion (allotting more time, energy and fruit of work), direction of devotion (theory transforming in to practice), relevance of devotion (concentrating on the relevant contemporary human incarnation) and level of devotion (ability to sacrifice anything and anyone for the sake of God), the spiritual path becomes fruitful.

Any path directed towards Me is the best and any path diverted towards the world is the worst. No path by itself is good or bad. The paths directed towards world may differ within themselves as relatively good (justice) or bad (injustice) and this relative difference is limited to the area of the world (Pravrutti) only as long as the direction to God (Nivrutti) doesn’t come into the picture. God is greater than even the welfare of the world and this point is tested by God in the case of divine servants working for the welfare of the world.

You must work for welfare of the world since such welfare is liked by God. As a Nivrutti-devotee, you should not keep the welfare of the world above God. The Veda says that nothing and nobody is even equal to God and not to speak of more than God (Natatsamah…). In the earlier stage, try to serve Me adjusting yourself to the external atmosphere (your family and society) and the varying nature of mind.

You should not hurt any soul for My sake and you should reach Me rejecting everything and everyone by not hurting anyone even a little. You can adopt the method of dramatic action for this purpose like anesthesia in performing surgery, which is not a sin at all since I am the goal.

Universal Spirituality or Universal Religion is like the central government of India and the specific religion followed by any person, is like the state government of any one state in India. The citizen belongs to both the central and state governments simultaneously. This means that you can be a follower of Universal Religion while still being a follower of your own religion.

The important point you have to learn from Universal Religion is that you should never criticize other religions. The same God appeared in different forms at different places, in different times.

Knowledge is the intellectual part of the spiritual effort which is called jñāna yoga. Devotion to God, which is known as bhakti yoga, is the merit of Islam. It is the emotional part of the spiritual effort. The practical part of the spiritual effort is service and donation.

Donation of one’s hard-earned money is said to be the sacrifice of the fruit of one’s work. Service and donation together are called karma yoga and it is the merit of Christianity. Purifying one’s devotion to God by making it free of any worldly aspiration or desire is the merit of Buddhism. Practicing non-violence towards all souls is the merit of Jainism. Apart from the various religions, science too has its merit and it has a place in Universal Spirituality. The sharp analysis of any concept without blind belief is the merit of science.

Thus, on your spiritual journey towards God, you must pick the merits of all religions. Universal Religion or Universal Spirituality is not a specific religion to be listed along with the religions of the world. It is meant for the establishment of peace and harmony in this world. Since I am born as Hindu, I follow My religion. But I realize that all other religions are the equally-correct paths starting from different directions but all leading to the same God at the center.

Every religion will lead a person to the same God. So, conversion to another religion is the biggest foolishness that any devotee can do. When all roads lead to the same center, is it not the height of foolishness to leave your road and laterally cross over to another road that leads to the same center? Good times for this entire world are very near. This Universal Spirituality and Religion will bring tremendous unity among all religions. You said that you are following the philosophy of Hinduism. In the spiritual knowledge or philosophy there is no name of any religion since knowledge is always universal.

Parents take complete care of their children during their childhood. The efforts taken by the parents for their children is service, which is also known as the sacrifice of work. Finally, the parents also transfer all their wealth to their children through their will. This transferring of the wealth is called the sacrifice of the fruit of their work since wealth is the fruit of work. So, the sacrifice of the parents for the sake of their children in terms of the sacrifice of work and the fruit of work is complete. Yet most parents save some wealth for their own old age believing that they will live until they become old. They feel there is a risk in sacrificing their entire wealth to their issues while they are still alive. There is a possibility that if their children are not good, they might not take care of the parents in the future when the parents become old. Sometimes, even if the children are good they could be incapable of serving their parents due to some unfortunate circumstances.
The case of God is different from one’s children. God is not bad; He is extremely good. He is also never incapable. In fact, He is omnipotent. Another important difference is that while one’s children are seen with one’s eyes, God is not seen.

There is insecurity for those who depend on the children who are seen by their eyes. But there is complete security for those who depend on the unseen God. Ignorant souls only believe in perception. Giving more importance to their unreliable children who are seen, they shower their real love upon the children. The proof of real love is karma yoga. The sacrifice of work and the fruit of work together are called karma yoga. It is the proof of real love since we practically serve and sacrifice our money only for those whom we truly love. Ignorant people truly love only their children and so they do this karma yoga only for their children who are unreliable. They do not truly love God and they do not do karma yoga for Him even though He is supremely reliable, just because He is unseen. Real devotees are the ones who believe in God through inference. They believe in the unseen, unimaginable God by observing His miracles which are visible but unimaginable. Inference, of course, includes perception since the miracles are perceived. This mentality of the majority of human beings is the climax of blind ignorance. Such blind ignorance is actually not based on either perception or inference but is based only on solidified worldly fascination!
Not only can one adopt any mode of worship, but one can also pray to any form of God belonging to any religion, based on one’s personal liking. The different forms of God of various religions are not different since the one and only God exists in every one of them. When this is the truth of even the forms of God in different religions, then what to speak of the different modes of prayer in religions?
One can adopt any mode of prayer of any religion if you like it. This is the basic right of every person in the Universal Religion, which is based on Universal Spirituality.

Doing the ritual-sacrifice (feeding hungry devotees with ghee-fried food and not burning ghee in the physical fire), singing divine songs, meditation, reading spiritual books, participating in spiritual discussions, seeing My pictures, etc., are various ways of My worship. You can engage Yourself in any way as per the convenience of Your mind and external atmosphere. Similarly, You can worship any form of Me as You like.

Whatever may be the form and whatever may be the way, Your interest should be spontaneous love and not by force due to desire for some fruit. I like such natural devotion only. The devotion due to interest in fruit is not natural and I hate it. Such devotion for fruit is like the false love expressed by a prostitute for Your money. As Your love appears on Your life partner and children in natural and spontaneous way without any force, such true love is liked by Me. For the expression of true love, there is no specific place, specific time and specific way of expression.

As You are expressing Your true love on Your beloved issue in any place at any time and in any way using spontaneous words, You shall worship Me in the same way. Are You reciting any previously written dialogue before Your issue to express Your true love? Why are You reciting previously written prayers before Me? As You are not aspiring any fruit in return from Your issue, so also, if You don’t aspire any fruit from Me, Your worship will be natural and spontaneous.
All the above ways please Me. But, participation in My service by doing propagation of My spiritual knowledge is directly the salvation itself. Hence, only a salvated soul can participate in My service. Today, the right direction to be obtained by true knowledge is missing and hence, the need of this hour is propagation of My spiritual knowledge. My service is not an effort to please Me, but, it is the fruit given by Me for Your spiritual effort!

The unimaginable God and His unimaginable power (māyā) are one and the same, whereas God’s imaginable power is different from Him. It has undergone modification to become creation (prakṛti) or it appears to be creation. How the unimaginable God possesses an imaginable power, which is different from Him, is unimaginable. Such a wonder is possible only due to His unimaginable power! Our logical analysis and entire knowledge are limited only to this creation, which is the imaginable domain. Hence, it is a waste of time to think about any aspect of the unimaginable domain.

This world, which is the imaginable domain, has plurality. The plurality supplies different media for the unimaginable God for His expression. It enables Him to enter into various selected human devotees in order to become Human Incarnations of God. The human devotee becomes a medium for the entry of the unimaginable God. Thus, God has incarnated in this world in different regions in different times to establish the different religions in the world. Of course, the unimaginable God does not directly enter any medium.

At the very beginning of creation, the unimaginable God first created subtle energy or space. He created the first form or body out of that subtle energy and entered into it to become the first Energetic Incarnation. This first energetic form became the first medium of God. This first mediated form of God or the first Energetic Incarnation is called as Datta or Īśvara in Hinduism and Father of heaven in other religions. There is no trace of difference between the unimaginable God and the first Energetic Incarnation, except that the former is unimaginable while the latter is imaginable. The energetic form of Datta is visible to energetic beings in the upper worlds.

For humans on earth, Datta is invisible but still imaginable. The first Energetic Incarnation, Datta, is also eternal like the unimaginable God; i.e. both have no end. The only difference is that Datta had a beginning from the point of view of His energetic medium, while the unimaginable God has no beginning. It is this Datta that enters a selected human devotee to become a Human Incarnation. The unimaginable God is permanently present in the energetic medium of Datta. That Datta, containing the unimaginable God, enters into the physical medium of a human devotee. Thus, the unimaginable God is equally present in the Human Incarnation.

God incarnates in human form on earth in every human generation. The human media into which God Datta enters each time is different as a result of the plurality that is inherent in the imaginable domain. In other words, one Incarnation looks different from another Incarnation. One Incarnation may appear in a place where people follow say Hinduism, while another Incarnation may appear in a place where people follow a different religion. The Incarnation’s external dress, language, and manners will naturally be according to the culture of the place where He has appeared. This enables Him to mix freely with the people He has come to preach and uplift. But these differences are only external.

From the point of view of the first Energetic Incarnation, Datta or Father of heaven, present in each of them, all Incarnations are one and same. From the point of view of the unimaginable God present in all the Incarnations too, they are one and the same. Thus, all these different mediated Gods are actually one in essence. If you look at the medium, which is part of the imaginable domain, there is plurality. If you look at the internal God Datta or the unimaginable God present in all of them, then there is only one. This truth applies equally to the sub-religions within Hinduism or the different world religions. This analysis is the fundamental basis for bringing unity among the sub-religions of Hinduism and among the various religions in the world.

The unimaginable God is beyond space and time and He remains unimaginable due to this reason only. From the unimaginable God, imaginable space etc., were generated, which form this entire imaginable world. In the worldly logic, there is no single example of generation of imaginable item from unimaginable item because in the imaginable domain (world), there is no unimaginable item at all — like this, if one realizes, let him belong to Eastern religion or Western religion, such a person is omniscient. This is My logical conclusion.

The unimaginable God created subtle energy or space so that an energetic body is created from subtle energy and remaining subtle energy is in the form of space, which is occupied by the created energetic body to be called as absolute space since such first energetic body will never disappear. The unimaginable God enters this first energetic body called as first energetic incarnation or Eshwara or Lord or Father of heaven (Allah/Narayana/Yahewah etc) called as Datta meaning that the unimaginable God is ‘given’ to the world for clear vision. Such incarnation is called as descended God because the omnipotent unimaginable God can alone cross the unimaginable link between God and space to come down. This first energetic body bound by space can’t cross this link to become ascended body. This first energetic incarnation enters other energetic bodies and human bodies to become energetic and human incarnations respectively in future.
This Father of heaven merged by unimaginable God creates the five elements and souls gradually due to His unimaginable power, which form this entire world — like this, if one realizes, let him belong to Eastern religion or Western religion, such a person is omniscient. This is My logical conclusion.
The first energetic incarnation along with merged unimaginable God is the common item in every medium and thus, same God is common in all religions even though media differ. Hence, only one God exists in all religions. Religion is the path to please the same one God. Religions differ due to the difference in the level, language, culture, etc., of different souls in different regions. The starting point or soul and ending point or God are same in every religion. Hinduism with many sub-religions is a mini representative model of world with various religions and in both (sub-religions of Hinduism and religions of world), we find internal unity in external diversity — like this, if one realizes, let him belong to Eastern religion or Western religion, such a person is omniscient. This is My logical conclusion.


Unity of Worldly Religions:

The unimaginable God gets mediated by different imaginable media (items of imaginable creation) becoming different mediated Gods of various worldly religions. The difference is only in the external imaginable media and not in the internal unimaginable God. This is the unity in diversity. When two countries are disconnected in the past time, let us assume that a religion came in one country, which didn’t reach the other disconnected country immediately in which several generations have gone without knowing the religious Gospel of God in the other country. The souls of these generations have gone to hell unnecessarily for their no fault since the other religion didn’t reach them. The other religion says that the people, who didn’t follow their Gospel will go to hell. Is it not partiality of God to a specific country? The other religion says that their God created this earth and all the humanity on it. Then, why is this partiality of Divine Father to a specific country without reason? Good and bad people exist in every country. The other religion can’t answer this question. But, we answer this, removing the rubbed partiality on God.

Our answer is—the unimaginable God came to every country in a specific imaginable medium and preached the same syllabus of spiritual knowledge in their languages. Those, who followed the syllabus (not language) go to God and those who deviate from syllabus go to hell. By this, no injustice happened to anybody of any generation in any disconnected country due to lack communication. Hence, there is no partiality of the one unimaginable God! Every religion says that their God (by virtue of a specific medium of God) alone created this earth. Unfortunately, there is only one earth!, which means that only one God must have existed. That one God is the inner unimaginable God, who is not seen (not even imagined) by any religious soul since the soul sees only the different external media and gets clutched in the false concept of different Gods.

One can follow own religion, even in conservative way, without criticising other religions. To avoid this split, ‘Universal Religion’ stands as the Central Government and every human being is in its own religion only as under the State Government (one’s own religion is the state). Being in your own religion, you can affiliate to Universal Religion since both are complimentary to each other. Swami gave correlation of the Veda, the Bible and the Quran in detail as can be seen in the above referred website.



? Every human being is having a bad habit of looking at his own merits and looking at the defects of others. This is egoism mixed with ignorance and is very difficult to be cured like diabetes associated with blood pressure! Anybody looking at his own defects and looking at the merits of others will always rise up. Similarly, any human being always looking at his merits and looking at the defects of others will go down only.

Every religion shall avoid the self-praise and criticism of other religions. All religions have both merits and defects because any human being in any country belonging to any religion has both merits and defects. Every human being shall belong to the universal religion to pick up only the merits from each religion and progress towards God in the spiritual path that contains only merits. Truth is always bitter and the preacher following truth can’t avoid the simultaneous bitterness. Saint Kabir says that the enemy scolding you is your real well-wisher whereas the friend praising you is not your real well-wisher!

Why preachings of various divine personalities seems to be different?


All the divine preachers are incarnations of the same God. Then, why differences appear in their preachings? The differences are due to the differences in the receivers (disciples) existing in their times. If simply, the same truth is announced in all the times to receivers of different mentalities, such preachings are not heard by the disciples like the deaf not hearing the conch shells blown! The disciples will listen only if the preachings are liked by their defective psychologies. Without listening the concepts, realization can’t come like without eating, digestion can’t take place! A scholar simply bothers about preaching the truth only, whatever may be the result. A preacher (Guru) twists the concept for the sake of listening and subsequent assimilation in the disciples. Twist is temporary and the string twisted comes back to the original state in no time. Gradually, the truth comes back to its original stage as the receiver climbs upper step. Unless these twists made due to different psychologies of receivers are explained in view of the times in which divine preachers appeared, the twists will continue as permanent deformations of the truth and this leads anybody not to believe that all these divine personalities are incarnations of same God. The Veda says that the same truth is spoken in several ways (twists) by preachers (ekam sat vipraa bahudaa vadanti).

The reasons and circumstances for such variation in the speeches of the preachers are explained by God Datta to bring unification in the divine preachers resulting in the unification of all concepts of spiritual knowledge for the sake of welfare of entire humanity (Sutras 32 and 33 are in the context of the criticism of Shri Datta Swami by one advaita philosopher).]

While preaching spiritual knowledge, one preacher gives a simile to explain a certain point for the sake of the receiver’s effective understanding. The disciple of another preacher, who has come later on, criticizes that simile,pointing at the inapplicable side of that simile. Whenever a simile is given, one should only take the applicable side of the simile. Otherwise, it brings misunderstanding and leads to confusions, differences, and quarrels.


Every divine preacher in this world belonging to any religion is My Incarnation alone. I incarnate in every generation to remove the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the concepts in spiritual knowledge made by the followers of previous religions. As I remove the misinterpretations by the proper correlation of concepts, the followers of every religion invent some new misinterpretations of other religions. This makes Me come again and again into this world in the form of Incarnations.


There are two levels, which are the level of God (paramārthadaśā) and the level of the soul (vyavahāradaśā). Both these levels should be studied independently. They should not be mixed since the imaginable soul is not the unimaginable God. My Incarnation shows that the unimaginable God becomes the imaginable soul for the purpose of expressing Himself to the imaginable souls. The Incarnation serves the purpose of preaching the true spiritual knowledge to souls, which is especially necessary in the context of such misunderstanding due to misinterpretations.

There is only one God for this entire universe
The universal religion


Difference is only due to external parameters, but, basically unity exists.


[All major religions like Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Science must be appreciated for contributing the major concepts of universal religion. There is only one God for this entire universe, who is unimaginable being the creator of space and hence, existing beyond space. Plurality is accepted only in imaginable items and it can’t be accepted in unimaginable items. Any number of unimaginable items result in one unimaginable item only. You can’t say that one unimaginable item is fighting or co-existing with another unimaginable item. Hence, there can be only one unimaginable God in all the mediated Gods of all religions.

Unimaginable God gets mediated by different media (parts of creation) for expression for the sake of different people speaking different languages and following different cultures. To become close to all the souls, the unimaginable God speaks different languages and follows different cultures when He gets mediated by different media in different places at the same time. All the people should recognize the same unimaginable God (unity) in different media (difference). The philosophies of all religions are spoken by the same unimaginable God and hence, must be same basically. These philosophies also differ externally because God follows the different psychologies of receivers in different places in different times resulting in multiplicity of external philosophy of different religions in various places. In the same religion also, different external philosophies appear in different times. Due to different psychologies of different types of people of the same religion, in the same place and in the same time also, different external philosophies appear.

A wise person must understand all these external parameters to realize the cause of difference without leaving the basic unity.]

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
Life is a poem, love is the pen.
