Niyati: Pranaam guruji… Dukh or Sukh kya he? Indian philosophy, Ved or Shrimadbhagwatgeeta me jo dukh k prakaar bataaye gye he kya wo vartmaan jeevan ke yathaarth me dukh he bhi ya nahi? In dukho ka kaaran kon he or inse nitya k liye mukti kese sambhav he?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you my daughter.

Pichhle janamon ke kiye paap karmon ka phal dukh ke roop mein bhogna padta hai, jaise gareebi , beemariyan , pareshaniyan, janam mrityu ke kalesh, raag-dwesh itiyadi.shareerik dukh jaise saanp (snake) , bichchhu ne kaat liya, bukhar ho gaya, kisi nein shareer ko hinsa karke dukh diya itiyadi. Mansik dukh mann kee pareshaniyan chinta aadi ko kehte hain. Daivik dukh hain jaise earthquakes, cyclones, floods etc. pichle janamon ke kiye punnya karmon ka phal sukh ke roop mein bhoga jaat hai, usmein upar likhe dukh nahin bhogne hotey.aur jo vedon mein aur Bhagwad Geeta mein kaha hai, weh satya hai. Dukhon ka karann apne hee kiye pichhle janam ke pap karma hain. Dukhon se mukti pane ke liye hee manushya ka shareer mila hai. Jab koi jigyasu kisi acharya ke ashraya mein rehkar, vedadhyayan, nitya ved mantron se Yajyen, Ishwar ke naam ka jaap aur vedon mein kahi Ashtang Yog Vidya kee sadhna karta hai to weh Samadhi mein Ishwar kee anubhuti karke dukhon se chhoot jaata hai aur moksha pad prapt kar leita hai. Aisa hee karma aajkal munshya ke liye kathin se kathin aur achchha na lagne wala karma ho gaya hai kyunki manushya bhautikwad kee chamak -damak mein, dhan, kaam-krodh, mad, lobh aadi ke vishyon mein phansa hua hai.

Aur usey upar kahi sadhna achchhee nahin lagti. Yahi karann hai ki aaj manushya hamesha dukhi rehta hai.

Manish: Kya bili (cat) palna shubh hota h?
Swami Ramswarup: Vedon mein billi (cat) palne ke vishya mein kuchh nahin kaha hai.

S: I have a lot of badhayen in my life.
Swami Ramswarup: Badhayen pichhle jeevan ke kiye karmon ka phal hotee hain. Unhein hataane ke liye jeev ko vedic sadhna karnee chahiye. Badha hatane ke liye Ishwar kee bhakti advise karta hoon.

Shubh Karma

Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.

One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.

GAYATRI MANTRA

The Gayatri mantra is as follows —

OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA
DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT

Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on
Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.

Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three
names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which
Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar,
Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigveda mantra 1/164/46 says
God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only
being explained.

VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore
Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus
Viraat is the name of God. Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter
makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti.
Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the
visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form.
Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed
and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible
but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction
is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.

AGNI = From dhatu, “ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its
meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., Omniscient. That is,
knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be
known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.

VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is He
in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being
omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.

HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base
of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.
VAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vayu word is made. Its meaning is
He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name
of God is Vayu.

TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made meaning He who is self
made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take
light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken,
unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun,
moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.

ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is
whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune
and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to
mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas
God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.

ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the
one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name
is Aditya.

PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made
meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who
knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So
God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion
can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.

BHUHU = “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe,
is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.

BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow,
and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the
name of God is Bhuvaha.

SWAHA = i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is
holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.

SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.

DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.

VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme
and acceptable for worship.

BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable
English word of Sanskrit word, “SHUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)

TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.

DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because

YAHA = the God

NAHA = our,

DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)

PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)

MEANING
“We meditate the God who is the base of lives’ of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration”.

Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things —-

Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.

Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.

Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.

HOW TO DO HAVAN

Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.

Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.

Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.

Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand’s finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajna. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.

Procedure of Chanting

Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any. After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.

Tantra mantra kuchh nahin hota hai aapko ussey darne kee koi zaroorat nahin. Achcha ya bura jo kuchh hota hai weh sub apney kiye hue karmon ka hee phal hota hai. Jo kisi ka bura karte hain usmein uska khud hee bura ho jaata hai isliye hum kisi ka bura na karein aur jo hamara bura karne kee sochtey hain, unka bhi hum bura na sochein kyunki unke burey karmon ka phal Ishwar unhein de deita hai, isliye kyun kisi ka bura sochna.

Jo kuchh aapne ankh, baal, hath aadi ke bare mein likha hai, ussey sukh-dukh ka koi lein-dein nahin hai. Isliye bhagwan nein jisko jaise karmanusaar shareer diya hai, uske liye weh shareer hee achchha hai. Us shareer se hum sadaa vedic shubh karma hee karein. beti, aap upar kahi Ishwar bhakti karein, Ishwar aap par kripa kareingey.

Kishore: Please send me:
1. Manav Dharma Shiksha
2. Sandhya Mantra
3. Mrityu – Ek Katu Satya
4. Aatmik Udgar
Swami Ramswarup: Books are being sent to you, please.

Sanjay: पूज्य स्वामीजी, प्रणाम !! वेद अनुसार आत्मा न जन्म लेता है, न मरता है । मेरा प्रश्न है – आत्मा कहाँ से आते है, जबकि पहले इतनी मात्रा मे सृष्टि पे जीव नहीं थे । क्या पहले से ही आत्माओ की संख्या निश्चित थी ? अगर थी तो सभी आत्मा कहाँ थे?
Swami Ramswarup: My heartiest blessings to you.

In this connection, I paste my article below:-

QUALITIES OF SOULS (JEEVATAMA)
Soul is alive. Soul has to face the result of his deeds. Soul takes body of human beings, animals, birds, trees etc., according to deeds of past lives. Soul feels sorrow, happiness etc., through body. When soul leaves body, it feels nothing but carries all karma to be faced in next birth through his chitta’s (chitta) vritti (vritti).

Souls are innumerable but are constant in number having similar qualities like being pure, immortal, alive etc. Soul is infinitesimally small, is invisible. The bodies of all living beings contain souls.

Not God but soul has desire, hatred/malice, merriment, sufferings, attachment etc. While attracting itself towards materialistic articles made of prakriti soul forgets his original form. As a result, soul recognizes himself as body. This is the stage of soul being unwise.

“NA TAM VIDATH YA IMA JAJAANANYUDYUSHMAKAMANTARAM BABHOOVA,
NEEHAREINN PRAVRITA JALAPYA CHASUTRIP UKTHASHASCHARANTI.”

(RIGVEDA MANTRA 10/82/7)

(TAM) that God (NA) not ( VIDATH) known (YAH) who (EMA) all worlds (JAJANN) creates and (YAT) from you (ANYAT) separate from other souls(YUSHMAKAM) from you (ANTARAM) with in all (BABHOOVA) is (NIHAREINN) fog like smoke (YAT) that God (PRAVARITAHA) covered (JALAPYAHA) baseless discussion (ASUTRIPAHA) satisfied only in Prann [breathing system] (UKTHASHASAHA) only paying lip service (CHARANTI) deals or behaves.

Meaning: Like an invisible matter which is covered with fog similarly dealing in only lip service and indulging in baseless discussion and are satisfied in their breathing system, Oh! Man-woman, you do not know the God who creates the five matters/universe and the God who is separate from other souls and who is within all.

Number of souls

All souls are immortal and constant in number. We see only bodies, either of human beings or living beings, though counting of ants, mosquitoes and other insects living in dense jungle, is not possible. Moreover the bacteria in air and in a drop of water even cannot be counted. So there is no problem in decreasing or increasing of bodies because souls are always constant in numbers having invisible shape.

Though the souls are countless in number but they are constant in number. Actually first of all every soul does not become capable to follow the path of Vedas. Secondly, the salvation time is fixed. So, it makes no difference whether one soul in a yug or more souls in a yug get salvation.

Ajit: Namaskar Yogacharya ji aur charan sparsh, How to analyse an incident which has happened, that it was according to prarabdha karma or kriyamana karma. Thank you so much for answering all my previous questions.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my son. In Atharvaved God states that accidents floods, cyclones, earth quakes etc., are His Yamdoots i.e., death as regards said incidents is based on Prarabdh karmas.

No doubt, some incidents other than those stated above, may be based on kriyamann karma.

However, the best judge in the matter of kriyamann karma is Almighty God because death and birth is also controlled by God.

You are welcome, please.

Dharmendra: Number ko short me no kiyno likte?
Swami Ramswarup: No., is the abbreviation form of word number, please. For example Rep is representative of representative.

Jaanu: YAJURVEDA 32:3 Tell me the meaning of verse NA TASYA PRATIMA ASTI
Swami Ramswarup: This mantra exist in Yajurved. Its meaning is that the God can not be measured, being Formless and above the universe (unlimited); idea being- God does not have idol.

Kundan: Swamiji bhagwan krishna ke guru dev ka name kya tha?
Swami Ramswarup: Yogeshwar Sri Krishan Maharaj ke Guru Sandeepani Rishi they.

Phatahchand: Please divine the difference between gyan and bhuddi. Thank you.
Swami Ramswarup: Gyan i.e., knowledge. Knowledge of agriculture, mathematics, science, mother, father and several other matters and knowledge is gained by buddhi(intellect). So Gyan is separate matter and buddhi is separate matter. Buddhi attains gyan i.e., knowledge. It is a
fundamental law that knowledge (gyan) is gained by buddhi when it is given by someone else.

Shubhangini: Radhe krishn guru ji kya radhe radhe bolne se hum jo chahte h wo hume mil jayga?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Vedon mein aisa nahin kaha hai par aap apne mann kee baat maan kar aisa kar sakte ho. Vedon mein kewal Ek Nirakar Parmeshwar kee bhakti karne ko kaha hai. Jo sansaar kee rachna, palna aur sanhaar karta hai.

Arya: Swamiji some sites spreading falsely there was beef eating in vedas.
Swami Ramswarup: In Vedas, there is no mention about eating of any kind of flesh etc., then what to talk about mother calf. In this connection, I would advise you to read my book “Protect The Holy Cow, Say Vedas”. So, it is unfortunate that people take beef, against Vedas. Let the people say or do what they want, based on their self made views because truth always prevails. My blessings to you.
