1)Is it not true that a Mahapurush's children are also mahapurushs.How can otherwise an ordinary soul become so fortunate to get a mahapurush's association as his/her parent?. 2(a)If beggars come to our door and beg for something(money,clothe,food etc),since we don't know that person(patra/apatra), we have to say a'no' to him & close our door even if it hurts him.Will it be a paap from my side to hurt him?Iam really confused of how to practically deal with such people (b)There are also people who come for the collection on some special occasions(festivals,celebrations,constructions).How to deal with such people?

       know that person(patra/apatra), we have to say a'no' to him & close our door even if it hurts him.Will
      it be a paap from my side to hurt him?Iam really confused of how to practically deal with such people
(b) There are also people who come for the collection on some special
      occasions(festivals,celebrations,constructions).How to deal with such people?
Answer: 1) In general, it would be logical to assume that the children of a Mahapurush would also be Mahapurush.



2.a) Giving food and clothing is the best option in these cases. Every human has a right to these basic necessities. Giving money is risky because the money could be used for something else other than the intended purpose of the donor. Then you would share in that pap if something bad is done with the money.



2.b) When it comes to donating to organizations, this is one way you could approach it: find an organization(s) that you trust and give charity through them in order to support their philanthropic activities. In God's eyes, He expects us to give charity according to our means. We should give what we can to help those in need. It does not matter whether all of those donations go through one single organization, or through many organizations. Thus, if someone comes to your door and you are already donating as much as you can through other reputable organizations, there is nothing wrong with telling them this fact and saying that you cannot give any more right now. However, if you happen to know and trust the organization being represented by the people at your door, then you may also choose to give to them. That is up to you.

How does hari and guru test us? How will we know it?

Answer: We should understand what this idea of getting tested by Hari and Guru actually means. In the world when someone tests you, it is to find out your level of understanding or advancement. Hari and Guru already know our inner state, so they don't need to test us to find out how far we have progressed on the path. However, when we face difficult situations in our day, it helps us to understand what is our true inner status of heart purification.
 
When things are going easily for us in the world, then there is no reason to get angry or dejected. We may think that we are very far advanced and are beyond things like anger, etc. But when we face an undesirable or frustrating situation, then we see our "true colors". In other words, the anger and negativity that was lying just under the surface manifests itself when given the required stimulus. Then we realize that these things still reside within us and we still have more work to do. It is a humbling experience that motivates us to try harder in our sadhana.
 
At the same time, we may realize that our negative reaction has reduced as compared with before, when given the same negative stimulus. This is a sign that we are making progress and that our heart has purified to some extent. This knowledge inspires us to keep doing more sadhana, because we see that we are moving ahead. 
 
Thus, the difficult situations we face in a day can be seen as challenges or tests set up for us by Hari and Guru. Some may be little tests and some may be big tests, but they are all to humble us and inspire us on our path of devotion.

Shree Maharaj Ji beautifully described how to recognize a God realized saint. We often see those characters (Asht Satvik bhavs, Love for God etc.) in some preacers of Shree Maharaj Ji, considering them a God realized saints (We wish to consider them as "GURU", as we easily get their association & can take advantage of it. But Shree Maharaj Ji instructed in one of his lecture in1989, not to consider any preacher as GURU, as they all are under the bondage of maya. Now thinking against Shree Maharaj Ji’s instruction would make a naamapradh. Please suggest in what way we should see the preachers of Shree Maharaj Ji either God realized sain or as high class Sadhak.

Answer: Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj often stated that none of his preachers are God realized, they are under maya, and should not be thought of as Saints. He trained his preachers to be able to speak on the devotional philosophy and thereby guide people towards the path of devotion, but they should not be thought of as Gurus. Having the association of any sadhak who encourages you towards devotion is good association and will help you, whether it is a preacher, or a so-called "normal" devotee.



As far as the asht sattvik bhav goes, there is a big difference between the sattvik bhav revealed by a Saint and the sattvik bhav seen in a sadhak. The Saint's sattvik bhav are true Divine expressions of the ocean of Krishna love that resides in his heart, whereas the sattvik bhav of a sadhak are the sign that he has some heart purification and has developed some feelings of love for Krishna, but he may still have a long way to go. 


 


Radhey Radhey,

Why does krishn only write down the actions of humans, but not animals?

Answer: Humans have the ability to discriminate between right and wrong, whereas animals behave according to their instincts. So animals cannot be held accountable for their actions, but humans can. That is why Krishna keeps track of all the actions a human does and also gives them the reward or punishment according to their good or bad actions.

how can you guarentee/know you will go to narak after your birth?

Answer: There is no way to know where you are going to go after death until that time comes. Then you will see all your life's actions, and will understand where you are going and why.

Whenever you have full faith in god,and do not surrender do you still go to golok

Answer: Full faith in God means 100% surrender. When you say you do not surrender, it means your faith is still not 100%, it is lacking somewhere. Once you have full faith in God, it will mean you have surrendered to Him completely and only then you will qualify to go to Golok.

if you are really sorry for doing nam aparad can your guru forgive you?

Answer: We should know that God and Guru do not look to punish someone who has done a namapradh. The damage is done by our own mind. We pollute our own mind with our wrong thinking and then we suffer the consequences. But God and Guru know that as long as we are under the bondage of maya, we will continue to make such mistakes. They are more than willing to forgive us and to help us overcome the negative consequences of our mistake. All a sadhak has to do is admit his mistake, sincerely ask for forgiveness, and resolve never to make that mistake again. When you do that, your Guru will forgive you and will help you recover your lost devotion so that you can go ahead on the path.
