ANALYSIS IS A MUST FOR IDENTIFYING THE HUMAN INCARNATION
[Mr. Anil asked: ‘One person says that the details of human incarnation are given in the scripture itself so that we need not search for the human incarnation through our analysis’. Given below is Shri Swami’s response.]
Divine Knowledge is always with God Alone: The scripture does not give the detailed address of any specific human incarnation since God is not bound by any official schedule and can incarnate anywhere and anytime as per the justified necessity. In the Gita, the Lord said that He will incarnate whenever there is necessity (Tadaatmaanam srujamyaham… Gita). In the Bible also, Jesus said that He will come again, which means that the God will come in human form again as per the necessity. Jesus did not give any specific address of the future human incarnation. Every generation of humanity must be blessed with the human incarnation. Otherwise, God will be subjected to partiality since only one human generation was only blessed. You should not say that the particular human generation blessed by the presence of the human incarnation alone is deserving and not other generations. This is not correct because Jesus was crucified by the people of that generation only. Every generation contains both good and bad people. Therefore, God comes in human form to give satisfaction to the good people and reform the bad people.
The human incarnation never declares itself as God in human form. The scripture also does not declare the specific details of any human incarnation in advance. Those people, who were anxious about God in human form, should recognize the contemporary human incarnation. By the grace of God, such people do recognize the human incarnation of their generation. It is a secret affair between God and a specific group of devotees, who were anxious about the human incarnation. The devotees are of several types and all do not accept the concept of human incarnation. Only the top most devotees accept the concept of human incarnation. Several of these top most devotees do not accept the concept of contemporary human incarnation even though they accept the concept of human incarnation by limiting to a specific past human incarnation only. The devotees of Krishna accept the concept of human incarnation in general but limit the concept to Krishna only even though Krishna Himself told that He will come in the human form again and again. Similarly, the Christians consider Jesus only as God.
The real identity mark to recognize the human incarnation is only the exceptional spiritual knowledge as said by the Veda (Satyam Jnanam, Prajnanam Bramha). The reason is that the true spiritual knowledge alone can give a right direction in the field of Nivrutti, which is permanent, related to the soul tramsimitting through several births. Pravrutti is temporary, related to the issues of a particular birth only. Therefore, the permanent benefit of the soul lies in Nivrutti only. For Nivrutti, the right direction can be given by the true spiritual knowledge only. Miracle is not the identity mark of the human incarnation since even devils perform the miracles. Miracles are related to the solutions of the issues of Pravrutti only and hence, mislead the soul from Nivrutti.
Long Logical Debates Reveal Truth
You should not give much importance to the scripture because the original scripture spoken by God is always polluted with the insertions of various middle people, who meddle with the scripture. Therefore, you cannot differentiate the original scripture and the inserted portions of the scripture. You have to examine every statement of the scripture through very sharp and powerful logical analysis. The logical analysis is the basis of the justice. Long logical debates take place in the court to find out the true justice. God always represents the true justice. The devotees desire God to appear in human form so that they can clarify their doubts in the spiritual line. Such desire is justified and people cannot wait till a specified human incarnation comes since they are not immortal. Some people got clarifications from Krishna and Jesus.
Today also, there are some devotees, who are equally deserving or even more deserving to get clarifications from the human incarnation directly. If these present devotees are not given the same chance, God’s impartiality is not justified and therefore, the whole issue becomes illogical. Therefore, any statement of the scripture should be logical and justified, which alone can be the statement spoken by God. You have not seen God speaking this present scripture. The scripture is handed over to you by your forefathers and nobody might have noticed the adulteration of the scripture that happened somewhere and sometime in this very long ancestral chain.
One person told that since Kapila told a specific concept, it must be true. Shankara rejected this logic by saying that some other name also might be considered as the authority and only logical analysis should be the torch light to find out the truth. Hence, Shankara introduced the necessity of the sharp analytical power to discriminate truth from falsehood for every devotee (Sadasat vivekah…). The physical indications can never be the signs of the human of incarnation since such signs were never told by the Veda. Only the true Divine knowledge, which is exceptional and unimaginable, indicates the unimaginable God. This knowledge always stays with God and is never transferrable like the beauty of a lady. The miracles are like the jewels of the lady, which are transferrable to others.
