Anonymous: My son feels that I have done bad to him, So he is not progressing and blaming me for his failures. Where as I done best possible for him? Who is mistaken 1) my self 2) My son 3) It is his or my fortune?
Swami Ram Swarup: Actually, most of the boys are in the habit of blaming the parents but it is very much clear that no wise parents would create any obstacle or disturbance in the future of his children. Boys are ignorant and parents have to forgive them always. So, it is neither you or nor fortune which is to be blamed. It is only ignorance of boy. Please ask him to continue his study with full concentration to make the future bright.
Gopal: Swamiji Pranam, It is believed that , while telling Bhagwadgeetha the Almighty God shows Arjuna his “Vishwaroop”. Now I would like to know When God is formless how could Arjuna see him in Form?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. In this connection, I would first advise you to read detailed comments on “Vishwaroop” in Bhagwad Geeta chapter 10 and 11; briefed in my book, Bhagwad Geeta -Ek Vedic Rahasya Part II (in Hindi) worth Rs. 400 excluding postal charges. If not then send your question again to explain the answer in short. However, I would like to mention that Almighty, Formless, Omnipresent God does not take Avtar. In this connection, I paste my article below:-
God is only one who creates the universe and no other can create the universe except God. Please think deeply is any one except God empowered for creation, etc.? The pious qualities of God are unlimited whereas qualities of soul, which resides in human body, are limited. That is why He is God. This fact is also mentioned by Rishi Patanjali in his Yog shastra sutra 1/24, “KALEASHKARAMVIPAKASHYAIHI APRAMRISHTAHA PURUSHVISHESHAHA ISHWARAHA” i.e., He who is not indulged in any sorrows/sufferings (kalesh), in any kind of deed (karma) and result thereof (vipakya), He is supreme in souls and is called Ishwar (God), whereas, soul is indulged in all the said matters according to deeds done in previous, and in the present life. So this is also a difference between God and souls and therefore soul can never be God based on the different qualities.
Amongst unlimited qualities of God, few may be enumerated-that God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent and Almighty, beyond description, beyond imagination, and beyond calculation. Nobody on the earth can deny such qualities, but these qualities are to be discussed and considered deeply and he who does the same is called MUNI as per Vedas and shastras.
Let us think over one quality of God – Being Almighty. Almighty means God has all powers and thus God, to control the universe and to do any kind of deed for the same, can not be dependent on another, at any cost, being Almighty. Again shastras say, which is a true saying too, that there must be reason behind for any creation, matter etc. God is a reason to create the universe. Parents are the reason to give birth to a child. Ravana took Sita forcefully which became a reason for war between Shri Ram and Ravana etc. So as per Vedas there must be a reason of avtar and after studying eternal knowledge of Vedas and thinking deeply, there seems no reason to take avtar by Almighty God. As in Yajurveda mantra 2/26, so is in Shwetashwaropnishad shlok 6/8 wherein it is mentioned that there is no reason to form a God and thus God is also formless i.e., nobody can make God but God creates universe from non-alive prakriti. Secondly the said Upnishad says that the deeds of God of creation, nursing, and destruction of universe are eternal, natural, and automatic. So naturally God needs no avtar to destroy Kalyug, earth, or devils etc., being Almighty i.e., God has all powers and is independent. Not God but only His powers are enough to control, create, nurse, destroy the universe. That is why Upnishad says that God has no desire to create etc., but it is eternal and natural and this sort of desire is named “IKSHAN” and not desire to create etc.
Suppose God has to kill a devil and He takes avtar and God kills the devils by arrow etc. It means God is not Almighty and independent because God has taken help of Avtar (Human body) and arrow, gun, etc., which is impossible.
This all I have told based on fundamental law of eternal knowledge of four Vedas. Yet if anybody says about avtar then it is their own views and they are satisfied with their views and can not be commented because they could have been realizing at their own but so far as eternal knowledge of Vedas is concerned, Avtar is not possible.
Anonymous: Meri Shadi shuda jindagi disturb ho gayi hai aur baat divorce tak pahuch chuki hai. Kya hamara divorce hoga ya nahi?
Swami Ram Swarup: Shadi shuda zindagi barbad hone ka zyada tar karann shak karna, vicharon ka na milna, ya pati aur patni mein se kisi ek ke dil mein burai ka aa jaana hota hai. Aisi gadi mein patni ka vishesh dharma yeh hota hai ki weh pati ke vicharon se apne vichar milaye aur ghar ki baton ko dharti ke samaan hokar sahey. Chotee badee sabse meethee bhasha mein boley aur jahaan tak ho sake ghar ko tootne se bachai. Aapko apna aatmik pyar pati par bakherna chahiye aur uski galtiyon ko hamaisha ke liye bhool jaana chahiye. Tabhi ghar bachega. Nahin to ghar tootne par zyada nuksaan naari ka hee hota hai. Roz ke takrarein, ladayiyan band karke meethee bhasha mein bolna shuru karo chahe pati kadwa hee boley. Iske ilawa ghar tootne ka aur koyi vishhesh karann ho aur weh karann aap likh saktee hain to E-Mail se likh kar bhejo. Khas bat yeh hai ki apne pati-patni ke rishte ko mat todo.
