Rakesh: Pranam guruji:mera swaal hai aap se, ki jab hamaray sherir ka koi ang fad fada ta hai ,chahai wo eye,face right or left,ya koi be ang ,kya ye hamai kisi gatna ka sankaat kar tay hai.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Ghatnayein achey-burey karmon ke phal ke anusar achhee buree ghattee hee rehtee hain. Ismein ang fafadane aadi ko na jodein, kyunki vedon mein aisa nahin kaha hai. Hum vedic shubh karma hee karein jisse ashubh ghatne ka khud hee nash ho jaata hai.
Byron: Dear Guruji! You teach that we should worship only the formless God. Then my question is what should be our relationship with the incarnation of that formless God in Shri Rama. Again how do we relate with devas like Lords Hanuman, Ganesh etc or Goddesses like Maha Lakshmi, Ma Durga and so on. My best regards! Byron PH, Nigeria
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. Incarnation is not permitted in Vedas. I paste my article in this regard-
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 Shwetashwataropnishad 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.
However, Vedas tell that God is everywhere but manifest in the heart of Yogi and such Yogis like Sri Ram, Sri Krishna Maharaj, Hanuman and Rishi-Munis etc., become equivalent to God and not God. Goddess Pooja also does not exist in Vedas.
