People used to ask me, “Foreigners are asking us….’We have only one god. Why you people have so many gods?’…. We don’t know how to answer them.” I tell them, “Don’t hesitate to answer. Tell them , “Your religion gives a T Shirt with size 44 and asks all the people to wear it, whether they are slim or fat, boy or girl, short or tall.. .All should wear the same size shirt. What Hindu religion does is, it gives the cloth and tells “You can stitch anything…kurtha pujama or shirt or T shirt. You can stitch anything you like according to your size. So Hindu religion seems to be more rational because it gives you clothes and makes you stitch the attire according to your fascination. Otherwise if all are given the same 44 size T Shirt, how can this girl or that boy or a child or an old man wear it? Can a three year old child wear that T Shirt? So we are more rational. Logo binna rusi. You are given the choice to choose any format of divine energy in which you will be interested. So Hindu religion is more rational. Hindu religion says, “God is an electricity. You can use that electricity for a tube light or light or air cooler or toaster or heater, air conditioner or fridge. Do anything with that. It depends on your capacity to pay the bill for the current. If you can’t pay the bill, just be satisfied with a single bulb”. We have variety of utilities which other countries don’t have. We can do more pujas because we are given choices. You can’t have the same curd rice everyday. We should have varieties like tamarind rice, lemon rice, coconut rice, idli, dhosa and so on. When a physical moleculer body comes, it gets connected to the planets through its nine holes. They like the format of god according to the planet which is powerful in them. If Mars is powerful in a particular person’s horoscope, they will worship Lord Muruga. If Venus is powerful, they will worship Ambal. If Mercury is powerful, they will worship perumal. If Moon is good, they will worship Lord Shiva. Jupiter means they will go for guru puja like Lord Narasimma and Lord Venkatachalapathy. If Saturn is good they will worship Lord Aiyappa, Maa Kaali, Lord Narasimma, Lord Anjaneya…. they will worship saturn based gods. So which form of god we like is also decided by the planets in our horoscope. If we have more than one powerful planet, we will like two gods also. If they have all the planets powerful, like in my horoscope, they will like all the gods. Not only me, even Ramakrishna paramahamsar liked all the gods. He even tried christianity and Islam. Then Adhi Shankarar… he used to sing Panduranga ashtagam about Panduranga, Sivanantha lahari, Saundharya lahari, then Ganesha, Muruga, Sun and Ambal. He divided religion into 6 parts..and made Shanmatha sthaapanam. He has sung about all gods… Subramanya bujangam, Karavalamba Stotram, Runa vimochana Stotram. He sang on all gods, because even in his horoscope all planets were good. My horoscope is also like that. So I like all gods. Its a question of vaasanas. So all gods are good.
