Praise of God Is Absolute Truth without Trace of Lie
#1
1) God do not require our worship. But, there are lot of Vedic hymns which praises God in different ways. These verses also authored by God Himself?
 
Shri Swami replied: Praise of God does not have any exaggeration. Every praise of God is absolute truth only. It is said that any praise of God is statement of reality only though it looks like a praise (yathaartha vyahrutih saahi nastutih parameshtinah…). Praise is the result of either total lie or at least partial lie. In the case of praise of a human being, this applies. Since every praise of God is truth only without any trace of exaggeration, there is no fault at all in praising God. When you praise yourself or other human beings, sin results due to total or partial lie existing in it. In the praise of God, since there is no lie and hence there is no sin, there is no place of criticism of such statement of truth from anybody. Knowledge of truth is the meaning of the word ‘Veda’.
 
God, the author of the Veda has given the knowledge of absolute truth without any trace of lie or exaggeration in it. Communication of truth to the humanity is the basic idea of God. If a human being has written a prayer on himself, which generally consists of total or partial lie, the objection posed by you may have some value. Even in the case of human being, it is not necessary that every human being writes praise of himself consisting total or partial exaggeration always. He may write a statement of truth about himself without any exaggeration.
 
If somebody writes that he is born in 1947, there is no exaggeration or praise in it. In the case of God, the case is totally different. Any extent of praise stated by God or stated by devotees is only absolute naked truth without even a trace of lie. Therefore, no statement of God about Himself or no statement on God by any devotee can be criticized in any context. There is nothing which God cannot do (omnipotence) and nothing which God cannot know (omniscience). Therefore, God is beyond the criticism of any created soul. The Gita says that one just knows the factual concepts of God from all the Vedas (vedaishcha sarvairahameva vedyah...).

God is absolute and eternal he is not in need of us but we are in need of God... He likes to see us being greatful and thankful to his favors.... the opening chapter of Quran Chapter 1 starts with full praise to the creator....  "1. In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
2. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;
3. Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
4. Master of the Day of Judgment.
5. Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
6. Show us the straight way,
7. The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray. (quran ch1 v 1 to 7)
