Srimath Seetharama Sathgurvae Namaha :


 Dear Sri Bagavathas,

   I have a very fundamental question to ask.

   Why is not required to attribute GOD with personal qualities (i.e., the
Kalayana Gunas etc),
because I feel HE has more important work like creation/destruction of the
cosmos..

   I am one among the confused lot unable to strike a balance between modern
scientific theories
and religion/philosophy.. I agree that our own Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas
and etal, talked about
highly abstract concepts such as Moksha, which no other religion haven't
spoken.. All the other religions speak Heaven (sorgaloga prapthi) as the
highest attainable abode, whereas our Vedas,
Idhihasas, Purnas etc talked about the highest abode for jivas as the
Paramapadha..

   Why is it required for HIM to look into the needs of mortal humans (who
are nothing more
than specs of cosmic dust) (dushta nigraha and sishta paripalana).. I feel
that we are missing something or being too "human" specific in our
description of ultimate reality.. There may be
many other intelligent species apart from this human race. Then the needs of
these other life forms else where (ie apart from this earthlings needs to be
taken care)..

   I humbly pray unto the feet of all the holy bhagavathas in this group to
forgive me for my ignorance for my language and for hurting the feeling of
any of the list members.

  I know this is the only source in which I can get out of this confusion.

 Seeking refuge unto the feet of all Bhagavathas in this group..

dasAn
Badrinath. D
