    Then, all those believing in Spirit vanish because of the covid scare?!
    You all have no Spirit!
    Doesn’t it look to you like the “covid” is a magic thing, or no thing at all?
    Have you gone behind your masks?
    Have you taken the human-modifying RNA “vaccine”?

    Then you have no place talking about Spirit!
    You all are bubbles.

    1. I am not sure, how this old comment came back here at this time, one year later.

      Everything that happens in the world is governed by the global destiny of the universe, and can be exactly predicted long before things happen by any seer yogi with high level power of third eye vision. Destiny and Yogic power are two chapters in this free ebook on Soul Theory. Individual destiny is derived or dependent on this global destiny.

      You may want to take a look at the article:

  2. In spite of omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence, The Supreme Soul wished to re-discover Itself. Hence, in order to experience the journey of Self-realization, The One decided to split Itself into millions of souls. However, the Supreme retained It’s true nature and did not diminish one bit despite splitting Itself into many parts.

    As souls, our ultimate destiny is to re-discover the divinity within ourselves and rejoin the Supreme Soul. We are all inherently divine, but we forgot this fact so that we traverse the experience of Self-realization. All the religious books repeat the same; humans were created in the image of God and, only we have the intellect to observe, question and appreciate.

  3. Hello,

    As you said, its just about soul and there no GOD. Who created the soul then and the universe?

    I could not find the answer to that.

    1. Sonali Malik, Thank you for visiting the soul theory ebook site. All your questions are answered in the book in many different places and in many different ways. The book has a chapter on Soul Theory also, Cahpter-10. Another name for that chapter should be Samkhya Karika. Mahabharat says – Samkhya has the highest level knowledge in Vedas. In Gita Krishna also compares himself with Kapil Muni, the author of Samkhya.

      Therefore any part of Vedas that contradicts Samkhya must be wrong. In particular most of the Upanishads are all wrong. Not anybody can write Vedas. Thus, you and I cannot write Vedas. Only Seer Yogis (Drashta) can write Vedas. Balmiki, Byasdev, KapilDev, Vrigu, Agasthya, Krishna, etc., were all known to be Seer Yogis. The book has a chapter on Yogic power.

      “As you said, its just about soul and there no GOD. Who created the soul then and the universe?” – Samkhya defines soul as the root cause of all causes. Therefore soul cannot have any cause, that is, soul must be causeless. Samkhya says – soul is, therefore, eternally existent. Universe is not an object, it is a collection of all objects. Therefore nobody created the universe. All individual objects are created by their own individual souls. More later.

  4. Hi Subhendu,

    Like your detailed study of the fallacies of science and your attempt to give a brief overview of Vedas to the audience through your writings. It is interesting and definitely a nice work.

    Some thoughts/ suggestion –

    (1) Free will is there but it is mostly limited. Let me give you an example – if you fly from SFO to NY on a flight, your choice in the flight are limited. You can choose to work in your laptop, watch a movie, make friend with person sitting next or create a ruckus. All these will change your future choices once you land in NY.

    Consider another example – when you go to amazon.com the home page is customized according to your past karma (browsing history) and decides what recommendations and search results you see. You are greatly influenced by them but most people choose the top-3 of the results shown to them.

    To be able to exercise freewill properly, is actually not easy for the bound soul. The higher the ignorance and passion, the more bound he is. Therefore, Gita recommends cultivating goodness lifestyle and thoughts in general and to surrender to Supreme Lord Krsna in particular. Then, one becomes free of all his papa karmas or sins and can make free choices (beneficial to the soul).

    (2) In Vedic times, people could see devas and even Vishnu in sacrifices because they had lot of goodness in them. Now, we are full of ignorance and passion and hence they are inaccessible.
    However, that doesn’t mean that Ram/Krishna/Vishnu are special humans. Rather they are Supreme Lord as explained in all Vedas particularly GIta.

    Hope my post encourages you to read detailed commentaries of Gita from Vedic authorities who come in guru-shishya parampara and become clarified of remaining little misconceptions.

    Once again, appreciate your insightful writeup particularly exposing the fallacies of modern science.

    1. For Singla Amit: Let me try to analyze your example: “if you fly from SFO to NY on a flight, your choice in the flight are limited. You can choose to (A) work in your laptop, (B) watch a movie, (C) make friend with person sitting next or (D) create a ruckus.”

      It is quite obvious that you cannot analyze all your options simultaneously, because our minds work only sequentially. You must analyze option A first, then B, then C, etc. Now let us see how you analyze option A. You have to either select A or reject A. You first find your reasons and then you decide. That means your reasons controlled your actions. So your action was not freewill based. Since reasons came before you took action, you can see that your past is controlling your present. So you cannot have freewill at the present moment.

      You have to break your activities in very small time intervals, of the order of 200 to 500 millisecond intervals to see how your mind is working. This is Newton’s action-reaction law. There is always a time gap between the two events: action and reaction. But destiny is lot more complex than this law. This book has the theories in the chapter on Truth and in the chapter on Destiny. The book soul theory is free. If you do not have the time to read the book, you may look at the smaller paper – https://www.academia.edu/38590496/A_COMPARISON_OF_MODERN_SCIENCE_WITH_VEDIC_SCIENCE

      I will address your other concerns later when we come to a stable point on the freewill issue. I prefer to deal with one thing at a time, in shorter discussions. I will appreciate your thoughts against my logic.

    2. For Singla Amit – Part 2 of 2.

      YOU WROTE – “HOWEVER, THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT RAM/KRISHNA/VISHNU ARE SPECIAL HUMANS. RATHER THEY ARE SUPREME LORD AS EXPLAINED IN ALL VEDAS PARTICULARLY GITA.”

      What do you mean by “Supreme Lord”? Do you mean they are the God that created the entire universe? If so, then that is not correct.

      Both Mahabharat and Gita say, Samkhya – written by Kapila Muni, has the highest level knowledge in Vedas. Take a look at the Soul Theory chapter of the book for the exact quotes. That chapter details Samkhya theory. In Gita Krishna says,

      [G.10.26] “Of all trees I am the banyan tree, and of the sages among the demigods I am Narada. Of the Gandharvas I am Citraratha, and among perfected beings I am the sage Kapila.”

      Observe that Krishna did not say he created banyan tree, Narada, etc. He also says he is as perfect as Kapila. Thus Gita does not say Krishna is the supreme lord. If you replace {Krishna, Super soul, Iswar, I, Me, My, etc.} by soul then you will find Gita will become more consistent and meaningful.

      Smakhya essentially says – You have a soul and that soul has created you. Bible says the same thing – “God is spirit” and spirit is same as soul. Every object in the universe has a soul, and that soul has created that object. Thus there is no supreme lord who created the universe. The Soul Theory book also has a chapter on Reincarnation, which gives an observational real example to show that you are created by your soul.

      Therefore to understand Vedas, one must have a thorough understanding of Samkhya and Yogic power. The book has a chapter on Yogic Power also. There is an example in this yogic power chapter, which shows you can take out your soul and enter into a dead body and continue living there, if you are a high level yogi. One must also understand destiny concept, and therefore the lack of freewill. Gita has a verse that says:

      [G.3.5] “Everyone is forced to act helplessly according to the qualities he has acquired from the modes of material nature; therefore no one can refrain from doing something, not even for a moment.”

      Note the word “helplessly” that means you cannot have freewill, you are guided by destiny. The book has a chapter on Destiny. Thus in reality you are guided by destiny, and therefore God does not or cannot have any role in our life. Destiny can be precisely predictable, before the events happen, by any yogi with the power of third eye.

      YOU ALSO WROTE – “…READ DETAILED COMMENTARIES OF GITA FROM VEDIC AUTHORITIES WHO COME IN GURU-SHISHYA PARAMPARA…”.
      Why would you read the commentaries of commentaries, when you have the access to the original source? How do you know that they have read Samkhya, and have the knowledge of Yogic powers? You will find most spiritual people denounce yogic powers.

      Here is a Gita verse that says you cannot know the truth about the universe without acquiring yogic powers:
      [G.11.8] “But you cannot see Me with your present eyes. Therefore I give you divine eyes. Behold My mystic opulence!”

      You know that Byasdev also gave the same divine vision (third eye, dibya drishti) to Sanjoy, who then described the battle to his blind King Dhritarashtra. So if you are a high level yogi, like Krishna or Byasdev, you can transfer your yogic power to anybody. But using yogic meditation you can also acquire that same power on your own.

      You may want to take a look at the following article, 25 pages long, which is a brief summary of the book. https://www.academia.edu/38590496/A_COMPARISON_OF_MODERN_SCIENCE_WITH_VEDIC_SCIENCE You probably know that the Soul Theory book is free.

      Again, thank you for your comments; and let me know if you have any more questions.

  5. thank you for your thoughts but I and my spirit guides disagree, after all, if all things were Destiny, then why bother to make any choices at all, life would simply happen as it is supposed to without any way to change it. But you do have “choice” and free will that guides you. You are not a slave of your past choices. I can choose to make a different choice, the same choice, or no choice, if it were simply destiny then I would have no power over it to choose. We do have great power to change things in our lives. We have free will. Your writing this book was a choice, Destiny did not make you do it. When the idea came into your mind you could just as easily have ignored it and then nothing would have ever come of it. The book would not have suddenly popped into your hand fully formed because Destiny said you would write a book and you had no choice.

    And While I do appreciate your comment on my site, and respect your opinion and right to have it differ from mine, I would ask you not to use your free will and choice to promote your book on my website http://www.groundedpsychic.com
    Thanks. 🙂

    1. Thank you for visiting my site. I am glad that you accepted my comment on your site. Tagore, a Nobel Laureate poet said – “Let me not advertise my work, allow Your wishes get expressions in my life”. English translation does not carry complete feelings. Destiny theory shows that we have two roles in our life “(1) For my own emancipation (2) Help others to emancipate.” All objects in the entire universe are continuously and simultaneously interacting with each other for all time. This simultaneity law makes our activities precisely and uniquely defined. You can see how the destiny works inside our corporations, where hundreds of people work simultaneously and interactively. You know exactly what you will be doing tomorrow when you go to your work. This is because there is a project plan, and you have a precisely defined role in that plan. You cannot use your freewill or choices there; if you do then the company project will be destroyed. Similarly, there is a global plan for the universe and it is created by all the souls of universe, trillions of them. So it is very accurately planned for all time, past, present, and future. Interesting thing about destiny is that any high level yogi with the power of third-eye, will be able to describe all future events or any event accurately with all details, long before the events happen. There are many such examples in the book and also on the internet.

      In your site, I explained why we cannot have freewill. It is now clear that it was not understandable. If destiny gives me an opportunity, I will try another time in another way. Now I will give a logical proof that we do not have choices either.

      Mind works only sequentially, that is only one thought at a time. You may have sensed that. That is, in every time interval or time slice, we can think about one idea only. You decide your action based on your reasons, and therefore you do not have freewill in that interval, because past reasons controlled you. Thus you cannot have choices in any interval. In the next interval you take another choice and process it using no freewill again. So, in every time slice you have only one choice and that is unique. Thus freewill and choices are both illusions only. It happens so fast that we do not recognize that we are being guide by destiny. A time slice can be as small as half a second. The destiny chapter and the yogic power chapter give all the details with many examples.
