Who Is Allah?

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

CAN RELIGION, SCRIPTURE OR PROPHET LEAD TO THE SUPREME TRUTH?

Religion, scripture and Prophet make tall claims that are simply what they are - tall claims and nothing more - and so they cannot lead to the Supreme Truth since they're evidently more a source of falsehood, fanaticism and suffering.

The wise person collects gems of wisdom from every source and after thoroughly reviewing them in an intellectual way to find out if they could have some positive effect in his life goes about practicing the same and gets direct evidence about the efficacy or inefficacy of the wisdom teachings.

When it comes to yoga, one should be very careful since it can turn life-threatening or lead to insanity or yo injury to the organs or to megalomania as it opens up the consciousness to various subtler forces of consciousness that one is unaccustomed to in the ordinary mode of life and besides it takes loads of patience and one must be prepared for immense suffering in the form of attacks from the adverse forces and illnesses or pains in the body in the beginning when the dormant higher forces take hold of the nervous system which takes time to get acclimatised to the new range of awakened forces in the being.

REASON OUT BEFORE ACCEPTING ANYTHING & THEN TEST ACCORDINGLY

In this age of information glut, the way to staying the course in a meaningful manner and of making inner as well as outer progress in life is to accept nothing at face value.

Question everything and only if a claim passes the test of reason should it be accepted as a plausibility.

By reason I do not mean the superficial logic of a scientist who sees everything exclusively in terms of crass materialism with his idea of reality of the crass materialistic kind being more a surface effect of deeper supramaterial causes than self-sufficient material causes by themselves.

By reason I mean a deep scrutiny of every claim by getting into the core of its meaning and seeing its interconnectedness with other well-tested phenomena to make an integrated whole and its value in terms of making life more meaningful.

If a claim can pass the test of reason as stated above then one may accept it as a plausibility while all the time being aware of the possibility of its deeper aspects (either positive or negative) that may have been missed in the initial round of perusal.

Above all, one should aim at practicality and not remain stuck on the level of shallow precept or of mere intellectual assent.

The subtler a claim is the more consciousness, including the yogic consciousness, would be required to inquire into its actual existence and benefit.

BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS LIKE KRISHNA & JESUS CLAIMING TO BE THE SUPREME BEING:

Beware of False Teachers whether Krishna, Jesus, Osho or anyone else who make the spurious claim of being the Supreme Being incarnated in a human body.

Everything in the cosmos is a manifestation of the Supreme Source and has at its core the Supreme Presence.

To recover one's supreme nature that lies at one;'s core, one cannot call the Supreme Nature down into the limited vehicles of one's mind, emotions and body but one has to rise in consciousness through all the intervening planes until one re-merges with the Supreme Consciousness and thereafter to act from that poise on the lower planes in an attempt to transform their inferior or unregenerate movements.

For the Supreme Source itself to incarnate on earth is an impossibility since its Supreme Presence, Supreme Knowledge and Supreme Power are so immense that gross matter, being just a feeble manifestation of it, would simply not be capable of accommodating its supreme immensity without being unbalanced or destroyed in the process.

A typal being from any of the lower cosmic planes can partially manifest itself on earth as prophet or as avatar but for the Supreme Source itself to manifest on the terrestrial plane appears impossible for the reasons mentioned above.

Besides, the Supreme Reality is more a featureless or attributeless field of potentiality in terms of consciousness and energy than a personality of any kind.

Totally self contradicting arguments ... On one hand you are supporting the claims of "Krishna" and "Jesus" by saying

<<Everything in the cosmos is a manifestation of the Supreme Source and has at its core the Supreme Presence.>>

Precisely that is what both "Krishna" and "Jesus" claimed. They have (especially "Krishna") clearly defined themselves as that "Supreme Reality" or, "Absolute Truth".

Your other argument is totally the product of your own imaginations ..... How can you say that the Supreme Power can not manifest itself on earth??? Even if it is immense, it will have full power to control its effects while on earth. The potentiality will be there, but it will not be fully active. Both "Krishna" and "Jesus" displayed a glimpse of their power while on earth.

How can you say that the Supreme Reality is featureless or, attributeless?? Have you reached the Supreme Reality already??

You argument is totally baseless and self contradictory.

My Friend JOEL,

With this post you have confirmed your supreme Ignorance about "Krishna", GOD, "Bhagavad Gita" and Material Manifestation ......

"Krishna" himself had stated in Gita that the Three modes of material nature (Goodness, Passion & Ignorance) are integral part of this material manifestation. All living beings are born with different degrees of this three modes. Hence, no one can erase evil from this world.

It is only an individual living entity who can beat the three modes by constant practice of YOGA and getting himself connected to the supreme ..... One needs to be beyond the mode of Goodness to able to see and reach Supreme Brahman ....

THE SUPREME SOURCE & FALSE TEACHERS LIKE KRISHNA/JESUS

1) The Supreme Source is a field of pure potentiality in terms of consciousness and energy and as such has the correct answer and the correct solution to every question and to every problem embedded in its essence.

2) The Supreme Source is not a Person but a transcendent reality beyond Personality in which inheres the totality or the complete potentiality of the whole of existence.

3) The Supreme Source cannot descend on to earth since its sheer supreme immensity would simply destabilize the feeble terrestrial nature or bring about its destruction.

4) When megalomaniacal lunatics like KRISHNA/JESUS make false claims of being the Supreme Source on earth the glaring fact remains evident to anyone with a little intelligence that neither of these spiritual pygmies could cure humanity of any of its problems nor could they transform any of the flaws of material nature both of which should be child's play for the Supreme Source to execute.

STEFANO: "I don't have to clear my conscience because I don't have it."

JOEL: Any normal human being feels guilty when he is about to commit an act of evil or he may feel it later after indulging in evil. It is a deep sense of regret that overcomes the consciousness and a need to make amends. You don't have a conscience or an inner instinct that intimates you of right or wrong or which makes you feel guilty since you're too crude and too unintelligent to be capable of listening to it and so this conscience or instinct in you remains smothered under dense layers of evil. Take care, otherwise you're heading for self-destruction. You're more than half way there.
Spotted well and that was an excellent response to Stefano, who admits not having any conscience at all.

These teachings has correct answer and correct solution to every problem that could be presented to humanity ....

KRISHNA THE SEMI-DEMON & THE CORRECT SOLUTION

TS: "Krishna" himself had stated in Gita that the Three modes of material nature (Goodness, Passion & Ignorance) are integral part of this material manifestation. All living beings are born with different degrees of this three modes. Hence, no one can erase evil from this world.

JOEL:

KRISHNA stole that bit of information about the triple modes of material nature from the Vedas and from the Sankhya that predate Krishna.

If the Vedic literature speaks about Jivan Mukta persons, or about those few capable persons who've attained to perfection while in the body, then, it stands to reason that these superior human beings achieved perfection by transforming the lower triple modes of nature working in their mind, vital and body by bringing down a higher transforming consciousness-force that transcends the triple modes of nature - satva (righteousness or balance), rajas (impetuous action) and tamas (ignorance or inertia).

In the Ramayana, we are told to transcend the triple modes of nature by becoming trigunatitha but what the book forgot to tell us is that once one rises to a plane of superior consciousness-force exceeding the workings of the triple modes of nature one should not remain stuck up there but cause the Power of that higher plane (that lies beyond the triple modes) to descend into the lower planes so as to transform their workings and to perfect things in the lower planes where the triple modes are at action.

This hint holds the key to Jivan Mukti and to Perfection while in the body.

If this can be done in a person via the transforming Power of a Superior Plane at work in the lower unregenerate planes, then, by causing the same Power of a superior plane to descend at least partially into the common unregenerate nature of humanity, one can cause human beings to become fitter and more regenerate and in this manner many of the old problems plaguing humanity can be overcome.

No one has been capable of solving a single problem of humankind in this yogic manner and so the old teaching of escapism prevails and human beings suffer and evil is spreading like wild fire.

Krishna, the false teacher, claimed that he keeps descending onto earth each time the load of sins increases phenomenally in order to rid the world of evil but this is simply another of his false claims since the world instead of becoming a better place by his so-called frequent advents has instead turned into a worse habitat where evils of every kind have taken root and are increasing at a phenomenal rate.

It is you Muslim that needs to stop your bull-shit stupidity and stop lying about what Jesus taught in the Gospels.

Read this Muslim and understand what it is saying about Jesus.

Jesus is a A Special Prophet raised up by God.

Moses was the most powerful figure in the history of the Hebrew people. Many factors constitute this claim. A few samples include:(1) the infancy stories which compare with Jesus [see: Chart 3],(2) the drama,(3) the miracles,(4) the Exodus,(5) the law,(6) the wilderness journey, and (7) the typology 9. This same Moses predicted that a special prophet was predestined to arise in the future.

The first of two prophecies states:
The Lord your God will raise up unto you a Prophet from the midst of you, of your brethren, like unto me; unto him shall you hear (Dt 18:15).
The second text is similar, though expansive. It identifies "the Lord" as the original source for the prophecy. This additional text adds authority and emphasis. In biblical terms it fulfills the role of a double witness10. The text says:
...the Lord said..."I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him" (Dt 18:18).
Notice the characteristics of this prophet. Moses tells in v.15 that he is:(1) a Prophet,(2) from the midst,(3) of brethren,(4) like me [Moses], and (5) hear him [you must]. The additional elements specifically stated by God in v.18 are:(6) God will put his words in the prophet's mouth, and (7) he will speak everything God tells him. Observe the similarity with Moses' own situation (Ex 4:10-12). Just two texts provide the complete database about "the prophet." Exactly seven characteristics are given. Nothing else is said about "the prophet" in the OT.
That Special prophet is Jesus Christ the Son of the living God.
Meaning Jesus is God come to earth in the flesh.
You are stupid Muslim.
You have no respect for God!

Read what Jesus says in the Gospels.
Jesus says the words I speak are from My Father who sent Me.
Jesus is that special prophet of Deuteronomy 18:15-18.
Both God and Man.

God sent Jesus to save you Muslim, but your rejection of Jesus as God-Man condemns you to the fires of hell.
A few points for your knowledge, Shamma.

The LORD never said, "I will raise up a son unto you and he will be a God to you".

According to Christianity, the Christian God created Jesus a sin and he was sent to die.

So, please keep in mind that Jesus was not sent to save anyone.

That Jesus was sent to save others, is rubbish!

Neither you nor any cognizant Christian has answered the following question yet. PLease give it a try:

Question: Who came up with the silly and absurd characters God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost? I don't see Jesus even mentioning God the Father.

Not worth responding JOEL as you are no authority to make the tall claims that you are making. Where as the fact remains that almost all the acclaimed authorities in Vedas & Upanishads have accepted "Krishna" as an Ultimate authority on these scriptures and majority of them accepted him as the Supreme Lord including men like Swami Vivekananda. I have already quoted a section of his speech where he has ascribed the tile of Lord who inspired the Shrutis (Vedas & Upanishads)... Hence, my argument is already well placed and concluded ...

You please continue with your meaningless gibberish...

Doesn't matter ..... Krishna was not an incarnation but the Supreme Brahman himself in his manifested form with full 6 opulences of "Bhagavan". He is the Supreme Personality or, Absolute Truth.

Why would "Krishna" mention himself in Vedas / Upanishads in his real form?? The real form is only revealed to the purest devotees. In vedas, he is known as "Narayana" ... "Narayna" is non different from Krishna or, vasudeva...

KRISHNA THE THIEF

So, Krishna finds no mention in the Vedas or Sankhya that predate him and from which he stole all his knowledge.

Krishna also stole butter.

Besides, being a thief by nature, Krishna stole the title Narayana, the name of the Ishwar Principle or the Personality of Godhead when seen on the Cosmic Mind Plane, and cunningly applied it to himself.

What a thief he was!

You are stupid like the Muslims.
You know nothing about Christianity.
Did you notice that the first link has no citations concerning the need to make things right with others? It merely the opinion of the author. You are a Catholic. Surely if there was a requirement to make amends for sins against others the Catholics would have an official pronouncement on the subject.

On the second link, did you notice it doesn't requires making amends with the person sinned against. The remedy is merely prayer. The act of contrition is merely prayer. Does it say that when you tell the priest you stole from someone who must repay the money?
