Kapaldev: THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY SWAMIJI,BUT I AM NOT SATISFIED FROM YOUR ANSWER.BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN IN TV SERIAL THAT LORD KRISHNA HAD THREE WIVES LIKE RUKMANIJI,JAMVANTIJI AND ANOTHER I FOGETED HER NAME.THE QUESTION WAS THAT IN PHOTOES AVAILABLE IN BAZAR ALL PHOTOES WITH HIS GIRL FRIEND RADHAJI AND NOT WITH RUKMANIJI OR WITH OTHER WIFFE WHY? KINDLY CLEAR.
Swami Ram Swarup: You are welcome, please. My dear, people are misled only because they either do not listen Vedas, Shastras and ancient Sanskrit holy books from any learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang yoga or they themselves also do not try to study the said culture. Our ancient Rishis have clarified that to reach the truth, one will have to tally the views in question, with Vedas, Shastras and spiritual books written by Rishis-Munis etc. If the views tally with the said culture, then they are true otherwise false.
I mean to say that the true character of Sri Krishna Maharaj is mentioned in ten thousand shlokas of Mahabharat written by Vyas Munji. In the said book, Sri Krishna maharaj had only one wife named Rukmanni. The learned do not accept the statements of Purann or any other stories which do not tally with our true culture. Sri Krishna Maharaj was a great warrior and Yogeshwar. He maintained his best character at that time. He even observed Brahmacharya in his married life. What is being spread about Gopis, Radha etc., is not mentioned in Mahabharat.
Before Mahabharat war, Ashwathama came to Sri Krishna Maharaj, to ask for his Sudarshan chakra, which was a great weapon. Sri Krishna maharaj told Ashwathama to take the same from the ground but Ashwathama could not even move it upto an inch, forget about lifting it. Then Sri Krishna maharaj stated to Ashwathama that his mind was fickle and not steadfast due to lack of Brahmacharya.
Sudarshan chakra could only be controlled by a Brahmachari. It could only be used by two persons- one himself (Sri Krishna maharaj) and other one was Arjun. I mean to say, what kind of Brahmcharya was maintained by Yogeshwar Sri Krishan Maharaj.
Secondly, Radha was his distant relative. So, how a great Brahmchari like Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj could involve himself with any gopi or Radha etc.
When Purann has spread the stories have tarnished the character of Sri Krishna Maharaj involving him with Gopis and Radha then what can we do and who can stop making of such photographs.
Raakesh: Dear swamiji hariom,guruji i love to do havan at home daily.as you have given the procedure on your site,shall i start to do at the time of sunrise,and before that is it compulsory to take agya from all 9 planets.also can i start from any day as shravan is going on.thanks pranam.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. To do yajyen/hawan and to study Vedas under guidance of a learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yoga has been told by God Himself in Vedas. So, no other permission of anyone (including nine planets) is required, please. Yes, time of sunrise is the best time to begin hawan in the morning and before sunset, hawan should be completed in the evening. Yes, you may start at any day, at your own wish because all days and time are made by God, as God is the purest, so are the days and time etc.
Again, my blessings to you.
