    Whether Topmost divine knowledge can be given to all?

    Shri Ramanath asked that whether the top most knowledge given by Swami should be confined to top most devotees only and not to general core of devotees.

    Swami replied: It is true that the preacher should give the knowledge corresponding to the level of devotees only. But if the top most level knowledge is given to all, there is no harm because a theoretical goal can be set up at any level. The goal must be always highest. The effort for highest goal will be certainly better than the effort for higher goal. Every human being is eligible for the highest goal. If the teacher announces hundred out of hundred as the pass mark, then even the below average student gets forty out of hundred and passes the test. If the announced goal is only forty, the below average student will certainly fail. You may fear that the below average student may be discouraged by the highest goal. But we say that if the soul is in the path of constant spiritual efforts, God will give any number of human births till the highest goal is achieved. Therefore, every soul is sure to reach the highest goal one day or other if the effort is maintained constantly (Na me bhaktah….Gita). Even if the goal is not achieved in this birth, the Samskara (concept) of the highest divine knowledge follows the soul in every birth, if at least the soul is convinced with the highest knowledge in this birth. In the next birth, the rare chance of getting this highest knowledge may be or may not be possible. But the highest knowledge kept in the brain only follows the soul as a weak samskara to the next birth and cannot help in any effort. But in this birth if the highest knowledge is associated with constant effort (even though it fails) to be put in practice, the highest knowledge will at least follow the soul as a strong samskara. Therefore, you need not worry about the failure or success of your spiritual efforts in practicing the highest knowledge. Even the failed efforts have their own value because even if practice is a failure, the failed efforts will strengthen the samskara for the next birth, which will have a definite possibility of practical implementation.

    The Father does indeed make it so that it is not so easy to fail, when one actually decides to take on their cross to bear, as the Holy Son did when He died on the tree for our sins, unto our salvation.

    And I do believe that certain knowledge is given according to the level of the faithfully devoted, for we must be nurtured as babes, and grow into the strong meat of the Holy Doctrine, as we have been taught.

    One must start by having faith and believing in the Father and the Son for all their Holy works done, such as the resurrection from the dead on the 3rd day, the healing of the sick, the casting out of the unclean spirits, and so on, and must trust in the Father, that in our faith we shall be salvaged from the fire and redeemed to His Way forevermore.
