Arun: Swamiji gives complete education of Ashtang Yoga philosophy right from Yam, Niyam, Asan, Prannayam, Pratyahar, Dharna, Dhayan and Samadhi, to the aspirants to enable them to follow the eternal path as was followed by dignitaries like Sri Ram, Sri Krishna Maharaj and several ancient Rishis. Swamiji I know you are a nirakarwadi scholar. I have visited your site and I was hurt after reading the above line. I know you don’t feel Shri Ram and Shri Krishna were avtars of God.

Swamiji I know you are a nirakarwadi scholar. I have visited your site and I was hurt after reading the above line. I know you don’t feel Shri Ram and Shri Krishna were avtars of God. But you have no right to use their name in above lines and hurt others feelings who know that they are avtaars of God. It is your own feeling and you cannot force it on anyone. Hare Krishna (I apologize for this bad question).
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, my dear, I try to spread the eternal knowledge of Ashtang Yoga and Vedas’ Philosophy. Please see that I try to spread only. But the knowledge originally has been given by the Almighty God in the shape of four Vedas. So, it is Gods’ knowledge and not mine or that of any ancient Rishi-muni. Vedas’ speak about the God’s knowledge only. It is not my personal matter to accept Avtarwad. Who am I to accept matter or not accept. Actually, it is Vedas’ knowledge where Almighty God does not promote the Avtarwad. He says in the Vedas that I am Almighty i.e., “I contain unlimited knowledge, so I have Myself control over whole universe and need no assistance of anyone.”
I only try to spread Vedic truth. If others’ follow the path of Avtarvad, I never tell them to leave their path. Representative of every religion has a right to promote and spread his views whether others accept or not.
I too worship the divine qualities of Bhagwan Ram and Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj in the absence of whom, the Indian culture is incomplete. Dignitaries like Bhagwan Ram, Bhagwan Krishna, king Dashrath, Harishchandra, Yayati , Sagar and several other Rajrishis are the true pillars of ancient eternal Indian culture because they adopted the Vedic Philosophy in their lives otherwise what other reference about the followers of Vedas can be given by us before the world. Now, we straight away say with pride the names of above quoted dignitaries who despite being kings adopted and spread Vedic path under guidance of Rishis and Munis.
During that time, only Vedas were in force and no present sects existed. Yet, I appreciate your views and I am sorry if I have written anything which has hurt you.
Pankaj: Sir, Charan Sparsh, I am doing havan twice a week for last 5 or 6 months as per your directions , and offering ahutis more than 500 times I start havan at 11 AM and uptil 12.30Pm will it be ok and offcourse doing gayatri mantras same time for more than 500 times and also increasing ahutis and chanting gayatri mantras every week,in ahuti I use havan samagri, dal, aata, chawal, badam, kishmish, Nariyal guggal, gandhak,loban etc. Will this dilute my bad karmas? I need your guidance is it I am on right track.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, my dear son, your performance of hawan is extra ordinary and God will sure give you its benefit. Yes, Samveda mantra 735 states right away that the bad karmas are burnt and our antahakaran becomes purified day by day.
Some spiritual books based on Vedas’ knowledge have been written by me which will sure be beneficial for you if you study the same. The books can be sent to you on receipt of your postal address. Again, my blessings to you.
Rajesh: Charanshaparsh guruji. I do not go to religious places and do not light jot or dhoop. I accept that God is not bigger than our mind. any knowledge in this world whether written in books or not whether touched by someone yet or not is always in every mind. need is only to explore our mind. social respect and honesty is must for every human being. when one thinks deeply he/she gets reply to all answers. I think God and our brain are similar things. Rather to go mandir/masjid we should give justice to our mind. we should do/see/touch/thought or feel what gives us power spiritually, mentally, physically, socially. we should reject anything that harms us or weakens us. What if we follow all above and not go to religious places? What if someone not lit jot at his residence? What if we do not say prayers daily?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You do not go to temple and you do not lit jot or dhoop, may not be some what wrong but please do not say that God is not bigger than our mind. As Vedas and experienced Rishi-Munis have told God is more minutest than atom and is bigger than (unlimited in dimension) than universe. Every atom of the universe has been created by the power of God. So is our mind which has been created from prakriti by God’s power. In fact, the divine qualities, powers, actions and knowledge of the God are unlimited i.e., beyond calculation, beyond imagination and beyond description say the Vedas and experienced Rishi-munis. Problem is this that we never look into the eternal culture of Vedas which emanates direct from God in the beginning of the creation. So, naturally we say about the God, whatever our mind states we do not control our mind and senses in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, shastras, etc.
Please, consider an example. Take care of a newly born baby in a dense jungle in a cave but never give him any knowledge. You see when he’ll even reach 25 years of age, he shall remain ignorant. Let him allow to use his mind at his level best yet he’ll remain ignorant. Because he was nursed in a cave of dense jungle continuously for 25 years therefore he’ll even not be able to tell the names of sun, moon, any tree, mother, father then what to talk about any other knowledge of science, world etc. Even if anyone will try to explore any kind of knowledge, he’ll listen and then try to gain. Suppose, the new knowledge was already in his mind then he could say, Oh! I think that it was already in my mind, I have only explored it. But, uptil now no student of any school, college or university has passed such remarks. So, I think you must change your thought, please otherwise it is upto you to change it or retain it. But fundamental law of universe can not be changed that knowledge is only gained when it is given by somebody.
How God and our mind can be similar things when God creates our mind? Whether robot’s mind is higher than the mind of the engineer who has made it. God is omnipresent. Can mind of anyone be omnipresent? God has created the universe. Can mind of anyone have the ability to create even a leaf of a tree?
It is a law of science created by man’s mind regarding to see/touch/feel/ think etc. whereas whole science has been created by Almighty God. Ability to reject and accept has also been awarded by God. When something (soul) goes out of the human body then eye, skin, ear, mind etc., remain in dead body but are of no use.
If we follow all above, as you told, and not go to religious places then it implies that we are thankless persons in the matter of Almighty God who has provided us with all comforts but we are denying Him. I have already told that it may be somewhat right of not lighting jot but it is not good if we do not pray or worship God daily according to the Vedas.
