The Shoa
« on: December 07, 2016, 05:14:44 PM »
We know that for Bhagavan there was nobody born, nobody dies, nobody ever killed anybody.
But for me the world is real, people are real, events are real.
When Bhagavan resided at Arunachala, the world suffered from World War II - especially the Jews underwent terrible sufferings.
Even if for Bhagavan nothing ever happened, I cannot help but wanting to know if He ever said something about the Shoa.
Does anybody know?

"We know that for Bhagavan there was nobody born, nobody dies, nobody ever killed anybody."

Then why did Bhagavan spend long hours in the kitchen for many years preparing food?   Was it to feed nobody?   Time to question our so called (mis)understanding.


"But for me the world is real, people are real, events are real."

The key question is whether the 'me' itself is real? And who is this me?  Everything else is peripheral to the me.


"When Bhagavan resided at Arunachala, the world suffered from World War II - especially the Jews underwent terrible sufferings."

Even many of his devotees suffered.  His answer was to enquire who is suffering or alternatively to surrender to the Divine will.
