Vishal: Namaste Guruji, Guruji few days before I have listen on T.V. from a Ramayan Scholar a Doha of Tulsidas “Ishwar ansh jeev avinashi chetan amal sahaj sukh rashi.” As I take meaning of Doha is “Human being is part of Ishwar”. But according to Veda God, Soul, & Matter(Prakariti) are separate entity. & I think soul is not part of Ishwar. Please put some light on it.

Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji, Yes, soul is not part of Ishwar. In this connection, I paste my article below:-

God is formless, omnipresent, omniscient, unchangeable, unchallengeable and when we would see a part of His creation i.e., air then we will know that even the air which is a part of His creation, cannot be fragmented into pieces. You see, even sky (space) is a part of His creation which cannot be broken into pieces. Now, you see, formless God is so subtlest and minutest that He resides within air, space as well as everywhere, due to His quality of being omnipresent. Yajurveda mantra 40/8 states His divine qualities that He is “Akaya” i.e., has no shape, “Avrannam” i.e., no kind of hole can be pierced into the God. So, learned will never think that God can be broken into parts. Then how can soul be part of Almighty God. Vedas state about traitwad- Alive God, Alive souls and non-alive matter prakriti.

The said three matters are eternal, everlasting and always separate from each other.

B: Pranam Guruji, Charan sparsh at your pious feet from all of us.I had sent below mail on 06.03.11 but have not yet received reply of the same. So kindly request you to please reply for the same. After that I will write further for your guidance & teachings. Yesterday afternoon we reached home from Ved Mandir with comfort. Guruji, we are very thankful and grateful to you and all member of Ved Mandir for taking such a great care of all of us. Our feeling cannot be described in words. Guruji, Aap atyant kripalu aur dayalu hain jo aap ne humain diksha di aur hamari prarthna swikar ki. It was our great pleasure to listen Vedas from you and its explanation. My wife is also very pleased to listen Vedas from you and has expressed her desire to follow Vedic path and do worship with utmost faith and dedication. We will do daily worship as suggested by you. We are also very thankful to Babluji/Ripuji and their family for their warm welcome and all help. We all had good time with their family members like one family only. We will look forward to such visits at Ved Mandir in future to take your darshan & listen Vedas. I will continue my visit at Ved Mandir every six months with your blessings. With Charan Sparsh from all of us.
