Doug: There is only man by which we can have relationship to God. That man Is Jesus Christ. He was given to us from God as a sacrifice for our sins and as our mediator between God and men. Please Repent and turn from your old way of thinking and doing in your life and ask Gods Forgiveness for your sins and ask for him to live inside inside you. Without Christ there is no hope of Glory. In him we move and have our being. Without him our spirits ar lost to perdition because of unbelief.

Because of his love for all human beings he is calling us worthy to repent and to be forgiven and start afresh in God. So please dear sir take a leap of faith humble yourself and call on him who knows you better than yourself be honest with all your heart and he will answer you.
Swami Ram Swarup: It is your thought that Jesus can make contact of a person to God but what about other thoughts please like Vedas etc. Vedas state that only a learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy has been given the divine knowledge of spiritualism, has been showing the divine path of spiritualism to release the God. In this queue, several rishis like Brahma, Manu, Surya, kshipt, Vikshipt, VyasMuni, Atri Rishi, Vasishth Guru, Patanjal Rishi, Pannini Muni who were born before respected Jesus Christ, are there to consider. So, the path to realize the God is eternal. Old way of thinking becomes old. It remains always new and everlasting whereas the whole universe gets destroyed one day. One will have to think that the Almighty God who is independent and alone controls the universe. He creates, nurses and destroys and again creates the universe alone, whether He needs any assistance? If without Christ there can be no glory then before Christ who had been awarding glory in the heart of Sri Ram, Sri Krishna, Rishis and Munis. Your views are appreciated and my blessings are with you. Please go ahead with your path and let me follow my eternal path of Vedas.

Rajendra Vijayvargia: Why the dead body is cremated before sunset? Is there any scientific reason behind this? I came to know of one incident when the dead body was cremated midnight because there was some religious ceremony next morning in the ashram where the dead body was lying. Is it right action?
Swami Ram Swarup:
Ans. According to 39th chapter of Yajurveda, the dead body is placed on pyre and is burnt while offering the aahutis of desi ghee and havan samagri chanting the Ved mantras. Vedas state that when havan or the said act is being done in sunlight then every atom of samagri and ghee goes to the place of sun along with rays and becomes fruitful and beneficial to the universe. In the absence of sunlight, it does not happen. So, better if we follow the Vedic path advised by God Himself for the benefit of human-beings and burn the dead body in the sunlight adopting the eternal process.
Chittaranjan: Poojaya Swamiji, Namaste, Please tell me If the 18 mantras of Ishopanishad can be recited to offer ahutis in Hawan.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. The eternal philosophy of Vedas states that the havan/Yajyen is performed only with Ved mantras. However, most of the eighteen shlokas of Ishopnishad tally with 40th chapter of Yajurveda. So, aahutis of 40th chapter of Yajurveda may be offered, please.
