K P: My husband is not trusting me and is not fulfilling the family responsibility for his son or me specially finance related. He is scared of younger brother and sister and also of parents and depend on them for even a small decision. He is having affairs with other girls also. So, I am not happy in my married life.
Swami Ram Swarup: My daughter, this is a family matter. Family life smoothly runs like a cart whose movement is based on its two wheels. If one wheel fails then the cart will not move. In the family life, the lady is like earth who has to bear to some extent so that the family life runs smoothly. At this juncture, it is also our duty to shower your love on your husband so that he starts looking towards you, your son and family. Please do not loose patience, be brave and then bravely and happily try to mold your husband in a loving manner. This is only you who can discharge your duties to mold your husband.

Vidya Sagar: Namaste Guruji, in page 425 before sloka 4/8, and in last line of explaination of sloka 4/7 “Thretha yug me sharir dharan kiya tha” I think Thretha should be Dwapara. If I am wrong please excuse me for taking your time. kshama chahatamu.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you all. The sequence of the yugas is Satyug, Treta, Dwapur and then kalyug.

Vivek: Swami ji, sadar pranam. Mai nashe ki lat se pareshan hu. Bhut chah kar bhi nai chor pa raha hu. Bhagwan se bhi prarthna karta hu par wo bhi lagta h mukh mod liye h. Padhai me maan nai lagta hai. Maan ashant rehta h. Krodh mera picha nai chorta. mai bhut pareshan hu swami ji. Kya bhagwan ki sharan me in chezo se mukti mil jayegi. Mujhe rasta dikhane ki kripa kare swami ji.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Actually, jahan chah hai wahan raah hai. Isliye jyada se jyada nashe ke case mein log iske aadi ho jaate hain, himmat chhod dete hain, iske against ladte nahi hain, pakka irada chhodne ka nahi karte. Bas yahi dohraate hain ki hum chhodna chahte hain par nasha chhutta nahin hai. Mera kehne ka matlab yeh hai ki jab aap isey chhodne ka pakka irada kar loge, pakki kasam kha loge to koi bhi takat tumhein mazboor nahin kar paayegi. Doosri baat yeh hai ki aap Doctor kee salah bhi lo aur isey jaldi se jaldi chhod do. Yeh nasha bahut see zindigiyon ko kha chukka hai, yeh barbaadi hee barbaadi karta hai, iski buraiyon par dhyan do aur isey chhod do. God helps those who help themselves. Isliye jab tak tum khud isey chhodne kee koshish nahi karoge tab tak Bhagwan bhi tumhari madad nahi karega. Student hokar jiska padai mein dhyan nahi lagta woh nishchit hee paap karam karta hai.


Concentration is not made on mind, but mind has to be concentrated on particular point or subject etc. It requires practice of Yam, Niyam, Asan, Prannayam, Pratyahar, Dharnna and Dhyan then one attains Samadhi. In this path, guidance of a spiritual master who knows Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy is needed. Holy name jaap of God helps a lot. I have written a book on Yoga which can be sent on receipt of your postal address. However, personal guidance as stated is essential. It is a moral duty of a student to concentrate on hard study and to look after his health. Avoid bad society always concentrate on your Brahmacharya. Awake early in the morning and after bath-brush etc., do holy name jaap of God at least for fifteen minutes. Go for morning walk and light exercises daily. Take plenty of water i.e., 15-20 glass in a day. Always respect your parents, elders and teachers. Must be soft spoken, Avoid TV to see bad scenes, films etc. This all will help you to concentrate in you study. Whatever, you study and learn, try to write on rough book a lot without seeing books etc. Please refer to the book- “Brahmacharya-Dukh Nivarak Divya Mani”.

How to obtain success as a student

A student must do hard study with firm mind to get success. However, ‘WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY’ AND IT IS ALSO SAID THAT “NEVER BECOME NERVOUS AND TRY, TRY, TRY AGAIN.”

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

One must awake 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.
