Its really Strange and mysterious world
« on: July 08, 2010, 06:33:34 PM »
It is no wonder sri ramakrishna says inscrutable are the ways of god.

We really cannot know him with our small intellect.

Few Examples

1)
Noble Winner C.V Raman believes in God while Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar who had a Nobel laureate in physics and who was the nephew of Indian Nobel Laureate Sir C. V. Raman does not believe in god

2)
P.Chindambaram who graduated from harvard and who is our home minister does not believe in god while Abdul Kalam believes in god!!!!!!!

There is a also book written on those athiests  :-)

Tamil Atheists: Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Periyar E. V. Ramasamy, M. Karunanidhi, P. Chidambaram, P. Jeevanandham, E. V. K. Sampath

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tamil-Atheists-Subrahmanyan-Chandrasekhar-Jeevanandham/dp/1155287177

3)
Great Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan believes in god and He often said, "An equation for me has no meaning, unless it represents a thought of God."

Ramanujan credited his acumen to his family Goddess, Namagiri of Namakkal, and looked to her for inspiration in his work.

While Bhagat Singh, one of the most well-known figures in the Indian independence movement, was an atheist.

4)
Periyar E. V. Ramasamy (1879–1973), the leader of self-respect movement was a vocal critic of rituals, supersition and the concept of God.

His words

“   There is no god, there is no god, there is no god at all. He who invented god is a fool. He who propagates god is a scoundrel. He who worships god is a barbarian   ”

are written on his statues in various parts of Tamil Nadu.


But Saint Annamayya sings 32,000 songs in praise of Lord Venkateswara when periyar is busy scolding people who believe in god :-)

5)
While Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India is an atheist and Kamal Haasan, filmmaker and actor is known for making films having themes of both Atheism and Brahminical Hinduism but mahatma gandhiji believes in god and he follows our dharma very well.


Conclusion: Inscrutable are the ways of god!!  inscrutable are the ways of god.!!!!!!  What can we understand with our little intellects.Wonder of wonder is how are the subtle body(sukshma sarira) so different for every gross body.

Just unimaginable and wonder!!!!!!

Dear prasanth,

Both proclamations of theism and atheism are the products of the ego.

Bhagavan Ramana used to say that even atheist should have a guru
if not a god.  Because he acts as per someone who has told him about atheism.  So he is the Guru for atheist.

Brahmasri Nochur Venkataraman says:  One theist and another
atheist [in the olden days] were arguing their points to the point
of fist fight.  But, after food and rest, they slept together keeping
one man's hand on another.  The sleep or absence of ego, keep them
together!   

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Prasanth,
                   If an atheist says that there is no god, it is absurd because unless there is a power within him which makes him to say that  statement , he will not be able to say anything and that power is called by various names such as consciousness,atma, allah, rama, krishna etc..If the same athesist is dead , can he still say that there is no god?Where is that  power  which made him to say while he was alive now(after death)?

I feel that believers and nonbelievers are in the same boat of Self-ignorance.Only Self-knowledge makes a difference.

Dear Dr. Raju, viswanthan, prasanth,

There is an old joke that I read a long time before:

In Germany, in a college lavatory, there was once a charcoal
writing on the wall which read as under:-

God is dead

    - Frederich Nietszhe  (the Germany philosopher)

Next day, there was another writing under the first one:

Nietzshe is dead

      - God

On the third day, there was one more writing beneath the
first two writings:

      - Both Nietzshe and God are ever unborn, ever free, no
birth and no death.

       - Gaudapada

Arunachala Siva.
