Swami Ram Swarup: Jab God Sarvashaktimaan hai arthat usmein unlimited sabhi shaktiyan hain aur uski Shakti ka ek ansh matra sansar kee rachna, palna aur pralaya kar raha hai toh ussey avtar leikar kuch karne kee zaroorat nahin hai. Jab bina avatar hee weh poorey sansaar mein pralaya kar deita hai toh uske samne Ravanna, Kansa etc., ek tinke ke samaan bhi nahin hai. Jab Charon ved kehtey hain kee Ishwar avtar nahin leita tab aapke yeh prashan ki Ravanna ko marne ke liye Ram nein avtar kyun liya, yeh apne aap samapt ho jaata hai arthat Ishwar nein Ram ka avtar liya hee nahin.
Isee prakar Ishwar nein Krishna ke roop mein bhi Avtar nahin liya kyunki usey zaroorat nahin hai. Ved Ishwariya vanni hai aur Ishwar se niklee hai aur Ishwar vedon mein keh rahaa hai ki main avtar nahin leita tab is-sey aagey kya kaha jaaye. Han! Jo avtaarwad apnee ichcha se maantey hain weh maanein aur pooja karein.
Shiv, Brahma, Vishnu aadi ke vishaye mein main apna article neechey paste karta hoon.
Are Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh Gods?
Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh are not God. Vedas tell that there is only one formless God who never takes birth. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe. His power is enough to create and control the whole universe. He is Almighty i.e., He has all unlimited powers and therefore He does not need any assistance to create, nurse and destroy the universe by Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. If God needs assistance then He will not be called Almighty. So God does not need any support but we all humans as well as all living beings need His support and blessings every time. However, in Vedas, there are innumerable names of Almighty God according to His divine qualities. So Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh etc., are also the names of the formless Almighty God. Brahma means the greatest. Vishnu means omnipresent and Mahesh means the greatest.
It is the personal matter of worship or not to worship. So atheists are also there. But it is very clear that God in Vedas as clarified that He Has blessed the human being with human body to worship and realise God. Nobody can attain happy life in the absence of worship of God. One more thing is clear from Vedas in which God states –Oh man/woman you live on the earth given by God and all comforts provided by the God. And if you do not remember/worship God then it is sin and punishment is awarded by the God.
Very few persons know that present science has also come out from Vedas, especially Rigveda. The knowledge of Vedas also emanates from God. So, it is clear that scientist also enjoy science which is given by God. God is not only the matter of blind faith. It is the matter of discussion with a learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga philosophy who from Vedas, shastras and Upnishads etc., and scientifically also prove the existence of God. For example- we see the creation and can think deeply that who has created it or is it a job of man/woman, scientist etc., then automatically after long discussion we would reach on the conclusion that men/women/scientist have not created the universe and then He who has created is called Almighty God.
Vishnu is also a name of formless, Almighty God based on quality. Quality is a sunder- “Vishnu” word is made from “Vishlari” Dhatu and the sense of Vishlari” is omnipresent. So he who has the quality of being Omnipresent at all times without a second’s break, He is Vishnu and no other Vishnu exists equivalent to this God. Similarly, Brahma= “Vri Vridhau” i.e., the biggest amongst the universe. Naturally, He is Almighty God. So, the name of Almighty God is also Brahma. Similarly, according to Yajurveda mantra 16/41 shiv means he who is beneficial/causes welfare, is shiv. The most beneficial, who creates and nurses the universe is Almighty God. So, Shiv is also name of Almighty God.
Doosra, Vedon mein zinda Mata, Pita, Atithi, Vedon ke Gyata Acharya aur panchva Swayam Nirakar Parmeshwar Poojaneeya kaha hai. Vastavik pooja toh sirf nirakar Parmeshwar kee kahee hai, kisi devi-devta kee nahin. Han! Jo apnee marzi se jaise bhi pooja karte hain, weh karein jahan tak ved ka prashan hai, ved ke manne wale sirf nirakar Ishwar kee hee pooja karte hain.
Ashwin: Swamiji,my pranams to you. Q1.I don’t know whether I have asked this question before. Where can I get the authentic Mahabharatha and Valmiki Ramayana books of the original shlokas alone and with English translations?
Q2.Why Yajur Veda is divided into Shukla and Krishna and when this happened?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. 1.) Original Mahabharat and Valmiki Ramayan can be obtained from M/S Vijay Kumar Hassanand, Nai Sadak, Delhi-110006. The website of M/S Vijay Kumar Hassanand is – www.vedicbooks.com.
2.) There are several branches (divisions) of Vedas. Division (branches) means description of Ved mantras by Mantradrishta Rishi.
