Maganlal: 1.आज सम्पूर्ण पृथ्वी पर मनुष्य जाति सर्वश्रेष्ठ और बुद्धिमान मानी गयी है , फ़िर भी धर्म के नाम इसी मनुष्य जाति द्वारा सम्पूर्ण पृथ्वी पर अशांति फैली हुई है , जबकी अन्य जीव – जंतुओं मे कम बुद्धि होते हुए भी उनके द्वारा कोई अशांति पृथ्वी पर नही फैलाई जा रही है , ऐसा क्यों ? 2. पृथ्वी पर सबसे पहले धर्म की शुरुआत कब , क्यों , कैसे हुई और किसने की?
Swami Ram Swarup: (1) Sampoornna manushya jaati ko sarvashreshtha aur buddhimaan nahi kaha ha sakta. Yajurved mantra 40/3 ke anusar bhi asur, manushya aur dev, yeh teen prakar ke manushya kahe gaye hain arthat jub mata ke garbh se jeev janam leta hai tub weh sadharann manuhsya kehlata hai, badaa hokar jub weh asur vritti ke dusht, paapi janon ka sang karta hai to weh asur kehlata hai aur jub weh ved ke vidwaan ka sang karke vedic sadhna dwara satya path par chalta hai, indriyan sanyam rakhta hai, satya vachan bolta hai to weh dev ya devta kehlata hai. To aap devta warg ke nar nariyon ko to sarvashreshth, buddhimaan keh sakte hain, doosron ko nahi. Isliye asur vritti wale aur sadharann manushyon se hee maanvata ka nash hua hai, insaniyat ka nash hua hai, chori-dacaitee Vishay-vikar, hinsa failee hai etc.
Anya jeev –jantuon mein kam buddhi avashya hai parantu Parmeshwar ne karmanusar unko kewal pichhle janam ka karmon ko bhogne kee saamarthya dee hai, naye karma pashu-pakshi apnee marzi se nahi kar sakte, isliye weh limit mein rehte hain, manushya kee tarah unlimited ya had se badkar, apnee had langhkar bure karma nahi kar sakte. Isliye pashu-pakshee se to burai phailne kee sambhavna nahi hai. Burai jub bhi failtee hai, manushyon kee hathdharmi se hee failtee hai.
(2) vedon mein dharma ka arth kartavya karma karna hai jaise Manusmriti 2/6 mein kaha-
“Vedaha Akhilaha Dharma Mooolam.”
Arthat sab dharma kartavya karma vedon se utpann hote hain aur ved Ishwar se utpann hote hain. Spasht hai ki srishti rachna anadi kaal se hai aur sadaa rahegee aur isee tarah char ved bhi Ishwar se utpann vaani hai jo anadikaal se hai aur sadaa rahegee. Ved evam srishti rachna kee koi tareekh fixed nahi hai, shuruaat nahi hai, yeh anadi, anant aur avinashi hai. In this regard, I paste my article:-
The creation is eternal and automatic. There is no date of creation of the following:
(A) Almighty God who is alive, immortal, formless, creates, nurses and destroys the universe. He never indulges in any maya, mahamaya, illusion and deeds (good or bad. Yajurveda Mantra 40/8 and Yog shastra Sutra 1/26 also refer)
(B) Soul: Soul is alive, the purest, away from sins etc. but illusion covers the soul due to which soul forgets his original form and hence remains in sorrows, problems etc.
C) Prakriti: Non-alive and has three qualities. i.e., Raj, tam, Satva. At a proper time, the power of God acts in prakriti and the universe is created. So the creation is eternal and automatic.
Raj, Tam and Satva are the three qualities of prakriti. When the said gunnas remain idle dormant i.e., do not work, then combination of these three gunnas(qualities) in dormant stage is called prakriti and this time is called “final destruction” of the universe. When an appropriate time comes, the creation is to be started again. Then the power of God works in the above three gunnas i.e., in the prakriti and immediately the creation starts. Rajo gunn is a sign of sensuousness etc., Tamo gunn signifies laziness and sato gunn signifies ego, pride. Our human body is also made of the said three gunnas.
Vedas tell that there are three eternal/immortal matters- first: Almighty God, second: souls, third: prakriti. Almighty God creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates it. The said process of creation is eternal/immortal/everlasting. Almighty God creates the universe from prakriti. When the raj, tam and satva gunnas of prakriti remain idle (dormant condition/inactive) then creation does not take place. At an appropriate time, a power of Almighty God acts in prakriti (i.e., in Raj, tam and satva gunnas). Immediately the process of creation starts and the first matter of prakriti is made which is called –Mahat i.e., mind; from Mahat- ahankar is made, from ahankar panch (5) tan matrayein, from panch (5) tanmatrayein, panch (5) mahabhoot are created. From panch mahabhoot, the entire matter of universe i.e., Sun, Moon air, water, our bodies, bodies of other living beings etc., are created. The whole creation is thus created from prakriti and remains still (in active) like a statue. This creation is called non-sexual creation. In the said creation, the young human bodies are created which are neither old nor babies. Then by the power of God, in the said bodies, breathing system (prann vaayu) starts operating. At last, God enters into the universe and immediately all the humans and other living beings become alive and start functioning. Similarly, the non-alive matters like Sun, moon, earth, air, water etc., start their respective functions.
Creation, Science, worldly matters etc., is not possible until the same is created by someone. Secondly, knowledge is attained when knowledge is imparted by someone.
Rigved mantra 10/129/ 1-6 throw light about creation that at that time, there was nothing and no living beings did exist. So there was no learned acharya who could give the knowledge to the newly created living beings like parents who educate the children to make them able to speak language and to know about the matters like crow, animals, chapati, ghee, sun, moon i.e., all matters of the world. See, if a newly born baby is managed to live in dense jungle and nursed well but he is not given education about the worldly matters etc. i.e., mathematics, science, animals, sun, moon etc., then even at the young age of 20-25, 30 years, he will not be able to speak any language and when he will be brought out of the cave of dense jungle and will be asked about the sun, moon, animals, birds before him, then he will not be able to reply because he was not given the said knowledge.
When we see towards sun, moon, air, space, human body etc. It is clearly understood that the said creation has not been made by any human being but Almighty God, from whom the knowledge of four Vedas emanates. In Vedas, the knowledge right from straw to Brahma has been mentioned. So in the beginning of non-sexual earth, the Vedas originated in the heart of four rishis: Agni, Vaayu, Aditya and Angira, and from the rishis the knowledge of science, deeds and worship along with every matter is being given to the public by which the public became educated scientist and wrote books, etc.
In Vedas as well as in fourth chapter of Yog Shastras of Rishi Patanjali, it is mentioned that those who do not believe in God are provided more and more facilities by nature and such people get spoiled etc.
On the contrary those who worship God, they naturally try to kill their desires and accordingly under the law, nature, help them to follow the true path to realize the God.
It is also pertinent to mention here that in Vedas, there is no mention of avtarwad or any proper noun, please. Vedas do not even contain any story or past, present or future life of anyone. Vedas contain knowledge i.e., entire science, form of deeds/duties and worship of God. Actually Vedas give knowledge right from straw to Brahma (God) of entire universe.
All four Vedas tell to worship a formless, Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God was one, is one and shall ever remain one. He is unchangeable, unchallengeable and beyond description. He has unlimited qualities and thus unlimited names but is one. Because He is Almighty and needs no help of anyone to create, nurse and destroy the universe therefore no need to take avtar.
Yeh duniya anadi kaal se bantee aur bigadtee aa rahee hai aur aisey hee chaltee rahegee. Yeh duniya anadi, shashwat aur avinashi hai. Ishwar isko rachta hai, iskee palna karta hai, phir isey nasht karta hai aur punaha iskee phir rachna karta hai. Aur yeh cycle anadi kaal se chala aa raha hai aur chalta hee rahega, kabhi samapt nahi hoga. Isliye jab is duniya ke banne kee shuruaat hee nahi hai aur iiska ant bhi nahi hai, to yeh kaise kaha ja sakta hai ki sabse pehle kaun aaya. Duniya mein teen tatva hain – Chetan Parmatma, chetan jeevatmayein aur jad Prakriti. Teeno tetva shashwat aur avinashi hain. Jad Prakriti se Parmeshhwar sansar kee rachna karta hai aur karmanusar jeevatma ko shareer pradaan karta hai.
Gyan diye bina gyan nahi hota. Jub tak hamein koi gyan dega nahi tab tak hamein gyan hoga nahi. Isliye jab srishti rachee jaatee hai tab sabse pehle Parmeshwar se utpann gyan hee rishiyon mein prakat hota hai aur Rishi gyanee bante hain, punaha rishi aage agyaniyon ko gyan dete hain jisse agyani bhi gyani ban jaate hain aur yahi silsila aaj tak chala aa rahaa hai.
Hamein yeh yaad rakhna hoga ki jo cheez bantee hai arhat jis cheez ke banne kee tareekh taya hui hai, weh vastu ek din nasht avashya hogee. jaise shareer banta hai to ek din nasht bhi ho jaata hai. Parantu jo cheez bantee hee nahi weh nasht bhi nahi hotee. Jaise Parmatma, jeevatma aur prakriti, yeh avinashi tatva hain, yeh kisi bhi vastu se bante hee nahi. Isliye yeh kabi nasht nahi hote, sirf apna roop budly karte hain.
