Mandeep: Swamiji namskar mujse dhyan nahi lagta or mujhe raat ko daily alag trah k sapne aate h plg help me.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.
In this connection, I paste my articles below:-
Dhyan Ashtang Yog kee 7th manzil hai aur dhyaan mein baithney wale ko dhyan kee pehlee 6 manzil ka gyan hona zaroori hai. Dhyan lagane wale ko rozana ved mantron se hawan karna bhi zaroori hai, tabhi labh hoga. Aap ekant mein swachchh asan par siddhasan lagakar, khechadi mudra banakar arthat jheebh ko ulti karke talu par lagaakar munh band karein, hathon ko ghutnon par sthir kar, dono bhovon ke beech agya chakra par dhyan sthir karein aur mann mein Om athwa Gayatri mantra ka chintan karte rahein. Parantu zyada achchha yah hoga ki dhyan lagane kee is vidhi ko kisi vidwaan se personally seekhein.
About dreams, Atharvaveda kand 16 sukta 5 throws light. Conclusion of the mantras is that one who weeps for those who have gone to heavenly abode, his age is also reduced.
Atharvaveda mantras 16/5/1,2,3 states that the dreams is the reason to create early death. Dreams is sorrowful like death. Next mantra 4 also states that dreams creates early death. Next mantra 5 states that dreams minimizes the wealth. Again, mantra states that dreams causes loss. Dreams is the reason for defeat. Atharvaveda mantra 7/100/1 states that impious dreams create sins in mind. Atharvaveda mantra 7/101/1 states that dreams are not true yet create above quoted problems. So, in several ved mantras, dreams are stated to be harmful.
The dreams are mostly false. Dreams are based on the scenes, stories listened in previous life as well as in present life. Samveda is upasana kand and tells worship for one immortal formless God, Who is Almighty, Omnipresent, Omniscient. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates, Vedas say that no one was equal to God and neither no God took birth in the past at present and will never take birth in the future too. There was one God, is one and will ever remain one. He is only everlasting eternal and unchageable king/lord of the universe. So we all must worship him only. In this connection guidance from a learned acharya of Vedas is necessary.
It is true that dreams come on the basis of the scene which we have seen in present as well as previous lives’. For example- if a person has never seen a fountain and he sees fountain in dream, it means he had seen the fountain in his previous life, the effect of which was imprinted on his chitta (mind).
Secondly, dreams are false. Dreams may give some pleasure but become painful sometimes. If a business man observes that he was a king in the dream but when he will wake up, he remains business man only and not the king. Vedas state that one should try to do worship of God to remove the occurrence of dreams in sleep.
Future is always based on past birth’ deeds or is based on present pious deeds. future is therefore in own hand, he who discharges his moral duties faithfully does hard deeds, pious deeds with full concentration, devotion and dedication, his future is always bright. One should attend satsang making time available to learn truth and know pious deeds to make future bright.
Prahlad: Namaste guruji kya insaan ki mrityu aur shaadi pehle se hi tey rehti hai?

R: Pujya Guruji, pranaam n charan sparsh from all of us. Regards to every body at ashram. Guru ji maharaj i want to share an incident with you. I was speaking to one of my friend she is suffering from endometry. I advised her to do sarvang sana it will help and before doing yogaasana recite gayantri mantra and remember God. She said gayantri mantra is not chanted every time. You have to chant specific mantra for specific problem, for clearing each chankra you have to chant specific mantra. If you have cough, you have to clear vishuddhi chakra. She once told me No body was able to open sahrashra chakra, when Jesus took birth, he only opened it. Krishna also did not achieve salvation, she is following Mata Nirmala ji. I said its wrong, I said Rishi Patanjali clearly talked about all this. She was telling me i have crossed all that gayatri mantra chanting and deep yajana. Its very difficult to remove falsehood and spread true knowledge. Every body is in their convenience zone no body wants to explore truth and follow it.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to you all my daughter for a long, happy life. Again convey my blessings to your husband to spend pleasant time in Bombay while discharging his duties. No doubt, that your advise is totally based on eternal Vedas’ knowledge and is fruitful to everyone but problem arise when the person to whom you are advising has been entangled in illusion by other self made worship/path. So, in this mater, your friend has also been effected with the preach which is against Vedas. As a result, Vedic preach is not accepted by your friend until she becomes able to listen Vedic preach for long time.
However, we must never be demoralized but try every time to preach vedic philosophy. Gayatri mantra or daily hawan mantra is quite enough to praise, pray and worship Almighty God. In Gayatri mantra we pray that our intellect must be purified and purified intellect will never do sin and will never be indulged in illusion. Similarly, in agnihotra mantras we worship God to obtain His blessings and He blesses in return for all types of benefits. So, no need of specific mantra for specific problem of chakra. Chakra matter is also related to prannayam. Your friend has, as I told above, her own views based on the preach against vedas otherwise our ancient Rishi-munis, Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj, Sri Ram attained Samadhi i.e., opened sahastra chakra.
So, you are right that those who are indulged in illusion, based on self made path which is against Vedas, their illusion cannot be destroyed until they prepare themselves to know Vedas.
