Miracle is a very dangerous hurdle to all human beings in the spiritual path.

Miracle is a very dangerous hurdle to all human beings in the spiritual path.

The main aim of unimaginable events called as miracles is only to prove the existence of unimaginable God to the atheists, who are always fond of experimental proof for the existence of God

Lakhs of miracles are performed by thousands of human incarnations in presence of millions of human beings of all countries in the world.

Devotee told: Swami! What can I do? I am always surrounded by the worldly problems.

Shri Swami Continued: I am not blaming you for this present stage, which is inevitable in the beginning for any devotee in this world. I am only blaming you for sitting in this beginning state only throughout your life. I do not tell that this beginning state is wrong and should not exist in this world. I do not tell that LKG class is wrong and should be removed from every school. The beginning stage is always associated with defect like the fire in the lit state is always associated with black smoke (Sarvaarambhaahi ... Gita). But, after some time, the black smoke disappears and the fire burns with its real radiation. I blame the fire if it continuously burns surrounded by the black smoke. You should fan the fire with hand fan to remove the black smoke.

My message to you is like that hand fan to remove your ignorance so that you will go to the UKG class. If you sit in LKG class only throughout your life, it is not correct. I do not tell that the LKG class is wrong and should be removed from all the schools. LKG should not be removed and should be maintained in all the schools forever so that fresh students join it every year as the old students pass and leave the class. You should not sit in it forever. It is mentioned as the beginning state, in which people seek solutions from God for their problems and this state is called as Aaarta, the first step (Aaarto Jijnaasuh ... Gita). The second state is called as Jijnaasu, which is the stage of analysis to find out the truth.

This is the reason to say that the miracles spoil the devotees on one side and the performer also on the other side like a double edged knife cutting both sides. As the worldly problems are solved, more and more aspiration rises in the mind, which is not subsided by the solutions of some initial problems. The rising aspiration brings more thirst for solutions of more problems. If you pour ghee in fire, the fire will not be satisfied and get subsided. Instead, the fire rises above more and more (Na kaamah kamaabhogaanaam ...). Hence, the miracles solving your problem encourage your aspiration and attachment to the worldly bonds more and more. This is in the direction of spiritual fall of the devotees.

After getting some solutions through miracles, these devotees surround the performer more and more worshipping and praising him as God. If the performer is not strong in his realization, he will be gripped by the ego. The performer may be a devoted human being or human incarnation. The devotee or the human being-component of the human incarnation can be caught by the ego and falls. Thus, the miracle leads to the fall of devotee on one side and fall of the performer on the other side. Hence, miracle is a very dangerous hurdle to all human beings in the spiritual path.

The main aim of unimaginable events called as miracles is only to prove the existence of unimaginable God to the atheists, who are always fond of experimental proof for the existence of God. Lakhs of miracles are performed by thousands of human incarnations in presence of millions of human beings of all countries in the world. These atheists without careful examination and analysis of these genuine miracles, always reject these miracles in one stroke by calling them as cheap magic. This is due to solidified rock of their rigid ignorance, ego and jealousy.

Even God can not change them and God said that you should not move them and no transformation is possible in them at any time (Nigrahah kim karishyati ... Gita). If you throw stone on mud pond, the mud jumps back and falls on you only. These few dozens of atheists think that these millions of theists are fools without proper observation and correct analysis. In fact, these atheists actually do not observe these genuine miracles with patience to find out the truth through analysis. They are never in search of the truth with open hearts like true scientists. They are always prejudiced with conservative ignorance and always search the ways to prove the genuine miracle as petty magic. Of course, they can try to do so, but, if they fail in such effort, they should accept the truth, which stands opposite to them. They force the truth to come to their side only and like to always see the success of their side only by defeating millions of people of the other side. This is the only purpose of miracle. Of course, apart from this, a genuine miracle is also performed by God in the case of true devotees, who do not aspire any fruit from God. The miracle in such a deserving case will not spoil the true devotee in any way.

You must know that the performer of the miracle does not repeat it in the case of undeserving devotees. The actual secret is that the performer can not do the miracle by His will and pleasure unless God in Him permits to do any miracle. If the current is switched off, the fan can never move. People do not know this and blame the human incarnation for its partiality. It is not partiality, but, it is the inability of the human being component of the human incarnation.

 A human incarnation by name Pundi Baba (near Arunachaleshwaram) turned an iron rod in to golden rod by just looking at it and gave to a poor deserving devotee. Other rich and bad devotees forced Baba to do the same miracle for their sake. Baba refused and was beaten by them seriously and Baba's hands were wounded deeply. In the place of Baba, if a pure human being without possessed God exists with ability of such miracle, he will repeat the miracle to save his life from the cruel devotees!

Of course, the devotees worshipping the human incarnations must not see this inability of the human being-component and should feel that the human form of God is not willing to do that miracle because God is identified with the human form. At the same time, the human being component should realize in His mind the truth of His inability without God's permission and should not be gripped by ego at anytime. The human being component should not express His inability to its devotees, which will spoil their faith in the human incarnation. However, sometimes, the God component may express this inability to test the faith of His devotees! Hence, in the case of any devotee, devotion without aspiration for any miraculous fruit from God is very much essential in the spiritual path.
