Frequently asked questions by our readers
1. We are living a very comfortable life and so did our parents and grandparents. We do not suffer from any symptoms of ancestral problems as mentioned on your website. Should we and our children still chant Lord Datta’s Name?
Ans.: It would still be advisable to chant Lord Datta’s Name as it is extremely rare for one not to have distress due to subtle bodies of departed ancestors. Besides not doing any form of spiritual practice is itself a kind of distress. One is so engrossed in and attached to worldly life that one is consequently far away from God. One experiences the full measure of pain when the people and things we are attached to are taken away from us.
2. Is it true that children are protected by keeping photos of their ancestors in their bedroom?
Ans.: No, this is a misconception. In fact they are prone to experience a variety of distress due to the negative vibrations of the subtle bodies of the departed ancestors.
The reason is as follows. A rule of Spiritual science says that ‘the word, touch, form, taste, smell and the energy of any object co-exist.’ According to this rule, wherever there is a picture of our ancestors, their spiritual energy co-exists. As explained earlier, most ancestors experience distress in the subtle realms due to their lower spiritual level. Therefore there is a very high likelihood that their distress is transmitted through their photographs. These distressful vibrations can affect children adversely.
