Smart Quote of the Day, October 28, 2015

Complexity: 
Easy

" . . . both those who declare themselves to be God and those who accept them as God will have to suffer for it. Anyone can claim to be God, and any foolish person can accept, but no one will benefit by serving a false God."

Today's Smart Quote is from the A Second Chance, Chapter Two, in the section entitled, "Spiritual Form and Spiritual Pastimes."

Sometimes a so-called incarnation of God declares, "I am God." He should be tested to determine whether or not he is actually God. The Mayavadis are claiming, "I am God, I am Krishna, I am Rama."

Everyone becomes "Krishna," everyone becomes "Rama," yet people do not challenge their claims: "If you are Rama, exhibit your supreme potency! Rama constructed a bridge over the Indian Ocean. What have you done? At the age of seven, Krishna lifted Govardhana Hill. What have you done?"

When they are challenged by Krishna's pastimes, these rascals say, "It is all fiction; it is all legend." Therefore people accept an ordinary person as Rama or Krishna. This nonsense is going on, and both those who declare themselves to be God and those who accept them as God will have to suffer for it. Anyone can claim to be God, and any foolish person can accept, but no one will benefit by serving a false God.
