Resp. Velukkudi Swami,
We are blessed to have several sacred texts like Vedas, upanishads, Bhagavatham, bhagavat gita, divya prabandham etc., They help us to get Spiritual knowledge on self, Creator and many more things. Reading them enhances our Spiritual knowledge and enlightens us. It gives lot of details on atmas, various ‘sareer’, gunas, karmas etc., Regular reading keeps one in constant remembrance on Him which helps in Spiritual journey. Learned Acharya’s / exponents spread the message to the common man also.
I am putting up this query without any intention of hurting any one and just for the sake of getting clarification.
Whether the knowledge gained through these texts will be carried by the atman when it leaves the body?. If it is not so what is the extent to which one can go through them, means whether regular reading and deep analysis is required?. Or is it enough to read and grasp the essence only for the sake of understanding and concentrate on karma as mentioned in the texts.
Expect the query will be cleared.
