Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
Had God not possessed special traits, how would have they been inherited by beings? A particular trait of the seed is found in that tree which grows from that seed. How will any special trait, which is not in the seed, be possessed by the tree? The poetic talent of a poet comes from God, the power of oration of an orator comes from God, the power of charity in a donor comes from God. He is the origin of all these powers. Salvation, knowledge and love etc. - all have been bestowed upon us by God. This is not the evolute of nature. If `I am an embodiment of salvation' - this is true, then how was I bound, when was I bound and why was I bound? If 'I am knowledge personified' - this is true, from where was ignorance emanated, how was it emanated, when was it emanated and why was it emanated? How can the darkest night of `amavasya' stay in the sun?
- Knowledge or the power of knowing is not there in prakrti. Prakrti never uniform but it is kaleidoscopic. If there is knowledge in Prakrti, that knowledge also instead of being uniform, will be kaleidoscopic. The knowledge which is born, will not stay forever but will be transient. If anybody holds that there is knowledge only in prakrti, we call that prakrti God, there is difference only in words. It means that there is no knowledge in prakrti, if there is, then that (prakrti) is God.
