Rekha Nautiyal: Swami ji Pranam, what is Sharap? Whatever we have heard in Ramayana that Shavaran Kumar parents had given to Sharap to Dasrath? Is it true? If somebody is a nice person. He has not illness and suddenly by heart attack he dies and leave behind two small kids. What kind of karma he may have done in his previous life and what yoni he will receive in his next birth?

Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you , my daughter. In Vedas, the meaning of shaap is to abuse. So, the word shraap has been created from shaap. However, Rishi-munis never used to give shaap/shraap to anyone. In Ramayan, the word is ‘shapet’ in Sanskrit , the meaning in Hindi of which is ‘Kosana’ i.e., curse. The muni actually uttered his voice full with sorrows and grief stating that Oh King Dashrath! As I am in grief due to the separation of my dead son similarly you will also suffer grief and would leave your breath accordingly. The said words can be told as “Shaap”.

The karma cannot be done because karmas of all the living beings are controlled by God Himself but certainly he must have done some bad karma which resulted in his early death and if he had not worshipped the God truly, definitely he would not get human body in his next birth.

Rashmi Sahu: Guru ji, Pranaam and charan sparsh, Guru ji i have read that Rishi Charak was an atheist is it true. Further Lord Krishna (who was a born siddha, means a liberated soul manifested with all astha siddhi) has said in Geeta that anybody who worships me (a formless God) or any other God, both atheist and theist will finally come to me. This can be co-related with Vedas as eternal laws are unchangeable. Further, can you give me full mantra from Vedas which say ekam sat viprah vadanti and vasudaiv kutumbakkam with meaning? Who should be considered sanatan dharmi?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. No, my daughter. When there is a title Rishi, it means he is mantadrishta/philosopher of Vedas. So, how can a philosopher of Vedas be an atheist? No doubt, Atheist will also go the formless God. It means the justice will have to be done by God only in the matter of either atheist or theist.

INDRAM MITRAM VARANNAMAGNIMAAHURATHO DIVYAH SA SUPARANNO GARUTMAAN.
EKAM SAD VIPRA BAHUDHA VADANTYAGNIM YAMAM MATRISHVAANMAAHUHU. (Rigveda mantra 1/164/46)

Rig-Veda mantra 1/164/46 says,” EKAM SAD VIPRAH BAHUDHA VADANTI,” i.e., EKAM SATAM means truth is one i.e., God is one but VIPRAH = Rishis, Munis who were/are learned of Vedas, BAHUDHA VADANTI utter so many names of God mentioned in Vedas like AGNIM YAMAM MATRISHVANAM AAHUHU meaning-the name of God are Agni, Yam, Matrishva and AAHUHU means “says”. In Yajurveda mantra 32/1 the names of God stated are AGNI, ADITYA, VAAYU, CHANDRMA, SHUKRAM, BRAHM, AAPAH, and PRAJAPATIHI ETC, ETC, ETC. I would explain the meaning of above all the names of God in brief due to shortage of time and space.

AGNI= agrini i.e., at the top or who comes first or who was before the creation and according to the said qualities, here the meaning of Agni pertains to God i.e., God is eternal and therefore exists always before the creation etc. that is why Rigveda mantra 1/1/1 says AGNIM Eedey – in the said mantra the meaning of Agni is God according to the qualities and situation. Meaning of Eedey means desire. Therefore the meaning of Agnim Eedey is , “I am desirous of God. Similarly YAM means controller of universe, Matrishva means air i.e., like the air God gives life to human beings. Aditya means which can not be broken into pieces, Chandrma means like moon God gives calm/peace, Shukram means Almighty, Braham means the superior/the biggest/the greatest etc., in the universe, Aapah means omnipresent, Prajapatihi means one who nurses the universe. So all the said meanings have the qualities of God and hence the name of God in the
Vedas, but these are always uttered by Rishis Munis, who are learned of Vedas, as mentioned in Rig-Veda mantra quoted above. Therefore only Rishis Munis who are learned of Vedas, utter or tell the holy name of God mentioned in Vedas and those who do not know Vedas can never utter the above holy names of God. But the said holy names, on the other hand, are even of surprising nature to them.

One thing more, the holy names of God in the Vedas are according to the nature, knowledge and deeds (God creates, nurses, destroys and controls the universe etc.) of Almighty God. Therefore those names are eternal and countless. So I am not able to mention here infinite names of Almighty God being beyond imagination, beyond calculation and beyond description etc., and we have to worship the said Almighty God whose description is in four Vedas, whose study has mostly been made stopped by the present saints who were against the Vedas and speak only charming stories etc., and never tells about Vedas. Whereas the description of Vedas is in Geeta, Ramayana,
six shastras, Upnishads and all ancient holy books. The reason why the present (most of them) saints do not quote Vedas is that they do not study the Vedas, do not do Yajyen and do not obey Ashtang Yoga Philosophy mentioned in Vedas which was too adopted by Shri Ram, Shri Krishna, Mata Sita, King Harishchandra, king Dashrath and their subjects/ public etc. Therefore we must be aware of false prophets.

As regards “Vasudev Kutumbakam” it does not appear. Sanatan means eternal, immortal, away from birth and death and the said qualities are of Vedas. So, he who adopts the eternal and divine path of Vedas, he has adopted sanatan path and can be told sanatani.

Harish: I am an addictive of tea, I have been practicing to leave it for 1.5years but it is very difficult for me to leave that. Can you please tell me anyway to leave it?
Swami Ramswarup: If you take tea twice a day then please take once and slowly-slowly minimize it. One day, you leave even one cup of tea. When you desire to take the tea then take Illaichi, sounf, (cardamom etc) mishri and then chew it slowly-slowly for a long time. I think your firm decision to leave the tea will give you success.

Shiv Shankar: Janm patri me kis grah ka kaun sa ghar hota hai.
Swami Ramswarup: Because Janam patri etc., has not been mentioned in Vedas. So, the learned of Vedas do not believe in it. However, you are advised to make contact with local pandit to get the information.
