PB: Respected Swamiji, Namaskar, I feel honoured in receiving from your holiness,answers to my various querries regarding religion and metephysics.Accept my sincere grateful thanks to you, sir. Again I wish to putforth a few of disputed beliefs and understandings, as
COSMOLOGY;- according to uptodate scientic researches;
(1) HIRANYAGARBHA; A cosmic Egg burst open (Big-Bang-Theory) and thus
Ever-expanding Universe came into Existence.
(2) From innumerable Galaxies, in one of them (ours) a Star “Sun” created our
present Solar System and Earth is one planet of estimated life of 10.7 billions
(3) Earth’s dry lands separated with each other due to internal shifting of
plates forming different Continents and seas of present day, and India
camenout of African continent.
ORIGIN OF HUMAN RACES & LANGUAGES:-
(4) The oldest human-like fossil found is about 7 millions years old, in Africa.
(5) Oldest known Civilisations found all over the world are many but oldest
among them (developped) is Harrappan or
Sindhu-Saraswati Valley, now in Pakistan, it is about 7000 years BCE.
(6) ARAYANS:- are from middle Asia,south of Baltic sea,Ukrine,Persia(Iran), when
one Tribe came to North-West India and another proceeded to Europe. Indian tribe
settled down around Sindhu river and developped early Sanskrit language from
Indo-European-Persian language. And the first ever written document (ompiled) in Early Sanskrit wa RIG-VEDA, then came others.
(7) Elite Sanskrit grammar was developped by sage PANINI, around 1500 years BCE.
(8) Vaidic is the oldest one. With one God., which developped into six Darshan
Shastras believing in one Creater, the God.
(9) Jainism and Buddhism came soon after, believing in No Vedas and No God but
(10) Dvaita, Advaita, Vishishtha-advaita etc are later philosophies of great
thinkers., Manifestation of several Yoga Systems such as Gyana, Karma, Bhakti
even Ashtanga etc. are in practice according to convinience of followers.
(11) And at the same period in the West…Zionism, Zoroastrianism,Christianity
and Islam came into play and spread according to
their Might (muscle power)___ but believing in only one God.
(I)Now with above scientic reseaches how,one can believe in so called 4xYugas?
(II) Do each Yuga begins after complete elimination of that Yuga or is it a simple transit between Yugas ,leaving their relics ?
(III) If so then , present Yuga Kalyug is very much advanced in all respects, i.e; Health, Wealth, and Happiness, untill Nature or Humans bring about some of extinction of the race?
(IV) There are living things without eyes, throat and heart, then where does Atman live orreside? in Kosha?
(V) Sankhya Darshan believes only in Prakriti & Purush,—but Patanjali/yoga shastra brings in God and gives us eight-fold system to experience Nirvikalp Samadhi?
(VI) What happens to Jains and Buddhists who do not believe in Vedas & God, but only in Prakriti?
Swamiji, for an orthodox follower of any religion, faith or phiposophy, life is very easy., but others find it very hard to live by? I wonder on what Gautum Buddha, Mahavir Swami or Rammanna Maharshi meditated upon to receive Enlightenment! My most humble Namaskar..
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Thanks and you are always welcome, please.
The pious word “Hirannyagarbha” is used in divine ved mantras. For example-
“OM HIRANNYAGARBHAHA SAMVARTATAGREY BHOOTASYA JAATAH PATIREK ASEET,
SA DADHAR PRITHIVEEM DYAMUTEMAAM KASMAI DEVAIYE HAVISHA VIDHEMA”
(Yajurveda mantra 13/4)
(Hirannyagarbhaha) form of jyoti i.e., God. God manifests the world, God gives light to sun, moon and others but He does not take light from anywhere since He Himself is a divine, perennial source and form of light, (bhootasya) of ‘bhoot’ i.e., from five bhoot or matters i.e., agni(fire), vayu(air), jal(water), akash(space), prithivi(earth), so bhootasya means the world made of five bhoots quoted above. (jaatah)eternal famous (patihi) Lord (ekah) only one (aseet) was i.e., the God who is form of light was only one eternal famous Lord of whole world made of five matters. Again (agrey) before this creation i.e., after final destruction of previous creation (samvartat) He was present, (sah) the said God (imaam) this (prithiveem) earth, (ut) and, (dyam) dyulok = celestial bodies emitting light, (dadhar) holds (kasmai)form of pleasure i.e., the God – It should be noted here that God has unlimited qualities whereas we the souls have limited qualities. So the God as said above is (hirannyagarbhaha) i.e., form of light as well as (kasmai) i.e., form of pleasure. Kasmai word is made from root word (dhatu) ‘kam’ which means pleasure, (devaiye) for the dev, i.e., God (Havisha) by offerings i.e., aahuti, yaj/yogabhyas (practice of ashtang yoga) it should be noted that worship of God means the offering of aahuti only with ved mantras in burning fire of havan kund, doing yajyen and ashtang yoga practice, (vidhema) ‘vi’ =special ‘dhema’= worship, in this way we do the best worship of God.
Oh! God, You are the source of the eternal light given to this universe, You have created the sun and the moon who give light to us. You are the Supreme Master of this universe. You were there before the creation of this universe, and will remain there even after this universe ceases to exist. You are the giver of all the happiness and pleasure. We pray to you by offering aahutis only with ved mantras in the Havan, by doing Yajyen and practice of ashtang yoga.
In this mantra qualities of the God have been described. God has numerous qualities. There is limit to the qualities of living beings but God has unlimited qualities. So, He is beyond imagination and beyond calculation.
In this mantra God has been described as a Creator and the source of eternal light to this universe and there is no one else with such qualities. The God, who has within Him, the sun and the moon-the sources of the light to the earth and who was there before the existence of this universe, is holding this universe after creating it, He takes care of this entire universe.
In this mantra it is said that, we should pray to such God, who has countless qualities and there is no one like Him.
We should not pray to the creations of the God but only to the God by means of agnihotra/yajyen, practice of ashtang yoga, etc.
Oh! God you are the perennial and divine form of light by which you manifest the whole universe. You are Almighty that is why You need not to take light from anywhere. You are only one formless Lord of the universe which has been created by Your power through five matters of prakriti i.e., agni(fire), vayu(air), jal(water), akash(space), prithivi(earth). You are the only creator of the previous creations. It is pertinent to mention here that process of creation is eternal and before this creation unlimited creations had taken place, nursed, destroyed and again created. Oh! God you are the creator of present earth and above quoted celestial bodies and, will always remain so. You alone shall destroy and create the universe in future too. You are the form of pleasure. We worship You by means of aahuti, yaj and practice of yoga philosophy, which is the best worship of God stated by God Himself in the Vedas. This worship includes chanting the holy name of God observing celibacy (brahamcharya), wielding good qualities, discharging of moral duties by students, families, vanprasthis and sanyasis according to Vedas and other holy books. God is one and only one and no other entity is equivalent to this God. He is the ultimate form of pleasure and we get pleasure in return when we worship the said God who creates, nurses, destroys and again creates the universe.
So, the matter of creation is very well described in Vedas by the creator i.e., Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient, formless God and the meaning of Hirannyagarbhaha is Almighty God who is form of divine light. You see, the whole universe is enlightened due to the divine light of Almighty God, who is residing in every atom of universe, His nature being omnipresent. So, the authentic creation of the Almighty God as mentioned in Vedas, in short, is as appended below-
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.
Rigveda 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.
(2) The life of the present universe is four Arab twenty nine crore forty lakh and eighty thousand years.
Out of which about One Arab ninety-seven crore years have lapsed.
(3) Creation has been clarified as above, please.
(4) may be that the oldest human like fossil was found about seven millions years old in Africa but as the fact quoted above states that human life started about One Arab, ninety seven crore years ago.
(5) Whatever has been searched/found is not enough. Because based on the Vedic principles, creation began about One Arab, ninety seven crore years ago. If science had been satisfied with its present result then the scientists would have stopped further research. But research is continued. Science is appreciated because it emanates from Vedas but it is our bad luck that we are after the research of only materialistic articles like creation (sun, moon, earth etc.) .but the main motto of the life to realise God and spread peace has been left behind and hence corruption, blind faith, early death, problems, tensions, diseases, turmoil everywhere in world.
(6) Aryans never migrated from Middle Asia, south of battle sea etc., in this connection my article is appended below:-
The Vedas’ knowledge is generated in the heart of four Rishis about one arab, ninety six crore, eight lakh, fifty three thousand years ago. Uptil Mahabharat war, i.e., before 5,300 years ago, the said knowledge was obtained traditionally, heart to heart. That is by listening from an acharya and was memorized by heart as well. That is why, Vedas are called ‘Shruti’ also. ‘Shruti’ means the knowledge was listened from the mouth of the said four Rishis by disciples, then disciples became Rishis and they spread the knowledge of Vedas and so on. So, uptil Mahabhart war, the said knowledge of Vedas spread heart to heart, by listening method and no book was published. Now, a great Rishi named Vyas Muniji, who also listened to four Vedas from his acharya and remembered it by heart, decided for the first time to write the knowledge of Vedas on Bhoj patra. Finally, he wrote the four Vedas on Bhoj patra, in his hand-writing. In sixteen century, the printing press came into existence and four Vedas were printed and produced in the shape of four samhitas.
So, he who studies Vedas has control on senses, mind and intellect, does daily Yajyen and practice of Ashtang Yoga Philosophy keeps himself away from sins, is called “Arya” otherwise “Unarya i.e., devil. So, Arya did not come from outside. They were living right from the beginning of the earth. And Vedic period starts at the time of beginning of each creation. Now, most of the saints lack the knowledge of Vedas and have made their own path of worship that is mostly against the Vedas. So, how can they oppose the illusion. Only, Arya samaj has been trying but their efforts are like cumin seeds in the mouth of camel because rest of the saints and public do not know about Vedas.
Instead, they promote the foreign spiritualism and culture. They visit abroad and thus collect huge amount from there i.e., Indian future has been made miserable. I am not against to promote foreign culture but not at the expense of our own Indian culture.
Aryans, as I have stated above, never came from outside. As regards, the oldest book, most of the people are in dark (ignorant). As stated above, the knowledge of Vedas originated in the heart of four Rishis, but the sequence was first Rigveda in the heart of Agni Rishi, second Yajurveda in Vayu Rishi, Third Samveda in Aditya Rishi and fourth Atharvaveda in Angira Rishi.
Manusmriti shloka 1/23 And Rigveda Mantra 10/181/1,2 states that there was an aspirant who obtained the knowledge of four Vedas from the above quoted four Rishis and is called “Brahma”. Vedas state that he who has knowledge of four Vedas is always called ‘Brahma’. That is, the same law is applicable in the present also. Now, you please think that Brahma got the knowledge from the above four Rishis, it means the Four Rishis were alive at the same time, then it is baseless to say that most ancient book is Rigveda, infact we should state that four Vedas belong to the same time period. For example- Twins take birth and their time of birth can differ for about few minutes but it cannot be told that the first born baby was more ancient than the second one. Vedas are not book, it is a formless knowledge like God. The handwritten books by Vyas muni were also written in same time period, because writer was one i.e., Vyas muniji. So, the four Vedas written by Vyas muni and the printed books of Vedas at present also, are not called Vedas but are called “Samhitas”. ‘Samhita’ means collection of ved mantras which have been printed in the shape of a book. Vedas are the preach which comes out from the mouth of learned acharya of four Vedas. The preach (voice) of the learned acharya is also formless and unseen.
Before Mahabharat, Manu Smriti (in Satyug) and thereafter Valmiki Ramayan (in Treta) had been written by Manu Bhagwan and Valmiki Rishi ji respectively wherein great events have been mentioned.
Study of Valmiki Ramayan reveals that those days, the science was at much advanced stage then that of today.
Yes, the knowledge of Vedas emanates direct from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis of non-sexual creation in the beginning of each universe. Yes, Rigveda comes first then Yajurveda, then Samveda and then Atharvaveda. In this regard, my article on Vedic philosophy is pasted below-
God has made universe and blessed us human body to do pious deeds only. He has not made any heaven or hell. All have to face the result of their deeds, good or bad here only, even by taking rebirth. (Rigveda mantra 10/135/1,2)
God has not only made universe but has also given knowledge of four Vedas where answers to your and everyone’s questions have been given. There are four Vedas:
1. Rig Veda – gives knowledge of science, matter of the universe like sun, moon, air body etc., etc.
2. Yajurveda – gives knowledge of all the deeds and duties to be performed by men or women, students, leaders, king, agriculturist etc., etc., etc.
3 Samveda – gives knowledge how to worship God who gives peace and long happy life etc. In this way, details of Yoga philosophy, qualities, supreme deeds and nature of the God are also given.
4 Atharvaveda – gives details of God, medical science and details of medicine etc.
Actually in four Vedas there is unlimited knowledge. Yajurveda mantra 40/8 says that God is everywhere, is Almighty, formless, devoid of nervous system, purest, away from sins and away to face any result of any karmas (deeds), knows every soul, knows what is in everyone’s mind, no body has made God, but God creates universe, has given the eternal knowledge of four Vedas and always gives the said knowledge at the beginning of every universe to know the science and deeds to all concern. Similarly four Vedas say about God that God is an omnipresent, omniscient, formless, beyond imagination and beyond calculation. Actually God has unlimited qualities. There is only one God who creates, nurses, destroys the universe and again creates. Atharvaveda mantra 4/1/1 also says that God gives the knowledge of Vedas at the beginning of the earth to four Rishis of unsexual creation. And thereafter only public listens Vedas through Rishis Munis as yet and become learned. Rig-Veda gives knowledge of Almighty, Yajurveda gives knowledge of karmas (deeds), Samveda tells about worship-Yoga philosophy and Atharvaveda about medicines and God. Actually all Vedas commonly says about God also, so this is about Vedas in short. But the knowledge of Vedas is endless.
It is a fundamental law that knowledge is always given by somebody otherwise knowledge can’t be gained at any cost. If a new born baby is nursed well in a dense jungle and is not educated then he will not be able to gain any knowledge. So we have to think about the origin of the knowledge prevalent in the world today. In this connection all Vedas themselves say that God gives this knowledge to four Rishis. As has also been said by Rishi Patanjali in yoga shastra sutra 1/26, God is first Guru of the four Rishis.
Yajurveda mantra 31/7 also refers. This is all in short about Vedas.
The Vedas are not a book, rather it is a knowledge originated in the heart of Rishis. At the time of beginning of the earth those Rishis preached Vedas by mouth and all others remembered the same by mouth at that time there was no pen, pencil, paper, etc. This process of studying Vedas by mouth remained till Mahabharata time. Muni Vyas too remembered Vedas traditionally by mouth. Then Muni Vyas first time wrote the Vedas on Bhoj patra about 5300 years ago. In 16th century when printing press came into existence then the Vedas were printed. Still Vedas are not those which have been printed but Vedas are those which are preached by mouth by an Acharya/yogi and the printed Vedas are called Sanhita.
Now if somebody worships a statue etc., i.e., its their own creation please but Vedas deny. According to Vedas the best worship of the God is Yajyen (Yajna) for which all Vedas are self-proof. Yajurveda mantra 31/16 says that the learned persons worship God by Yajyen.
So many people have asked me that most of the scholars/preachers of different religion state that their religion incorporates all matters of the world including science. What about Vedas? I wrote so many Ved Mantras describing science matters therein. For example, Yajurvaveda Mantra 3/6 states “Ayam Gauhu Swaha Pitram Puraha Prayan Mataram Prishnihi Aakrameet Asadat”.
Meaning= This earth revolves around the Sun in the space and it also rotates on its own axis. Vedas are eternal like God because Vedas emanate from God. Now, according to Vedas, this present creation is about 1 Arab, 96 crores, 8 lakh and about 53,000 years old. So are the Vedas but as said in Rigveda Mantra 10/191/3 the present creation is same as was the previous one and this process of creation is eternal. So are the Vedas which emanate from eternal God. This all concludes that Vedas are the oldest in this creation also and no other book of science, maths or pertaining to spiritualism is written before Vedas.
Like the above example of rotation and revolution of earth, the significance of whole present science is mentioned in Vedas. We can see that whatever is happening in the universe, is all according to the Vedas. For example, occurance of six seasons, actions of Sun, moon, process of death, birth, worship, yoga philosophy, atomic energy, agriculture, animal husbandry, knowledge of politics, administration, architecture, solar energy, knowledge of home appliances like mixer, grinder, business rules, about men, women, children, marriage, Brahamcharya, education, clothes etc., etc., i.e., knowledge right from a straw to Brahma is all in Vedas. God is Almighty and has unlimited powers. So through His power He is able to originate the knowledge of Vedas in the heart of four Rishis without pencil, paper, help of mouth or any other worldly assistance.
We, i.e., the whole world depends on Almighty God but God is forever independent. That is why, He is God. We are the souls who reside in human bodies. We need assistance of senses, perceptions, mind and body to do deeds but not God.
Nowadays, so many saints are writing books. What is the background to right their books? Background is clear that they have first studied or listened the preach from their Gurus, keeping aside the matter of truth or falsehood. And after studying or listening the same, they became able to write the books. So this is also fundamental law, based on which, the ancient Rishis first listened Vedas and when they became learned then only they wrote the Vedic books like Valmikee Ramayana, six shastras, Mahabharata (Bhagwad Geeta), Upanishads, etc., etc. So, first the knowledge of Vedas is initiated in the universe and afterwards other books come into existence.
Somebody may say that human beings have knowledge by their nature to create anything like books etc., but we see that the newly born baby who is nursed in a jungle, in the absence of knowledge of a learned person, he becomes incapable to do anything. Thus, he can’t be M.A, M.Sc, doctor etc. So there are two types of the words and meanings. First, eternal which are from Almighty God and second, natural made by human beings. Eternal word meanings are always from Vedas i.e., from God. After listening/studying Vedas, human-beings become learned and then too based on their own natural knowledge, they make their own words and meanings, literature etc. But it is very much clear that in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, no one can become learned. Nowadays, also people live in dense jungle and do not lead a civilized life because they are not learned as cited above. Vedas are not sects because they emanate direct from God and God is one for all human beings. God creates sun, moon, air, water, food etc., which are meant for the best use of all human-beings for their long, happy life. So are the Vedas.
So all human beings must accept Vedas as an eternal knowledge from God, for the benefit of whole creation.
7. Vedas themselves contain complete knowledge and even beyond. I mean to say, Grammar also emanates from Vedas and philosopher of Vedas, Rishi Pannini, based on Vedas’ knowledge, has written Sanskrit grammar book named Astadhyayi and Mahabhashya first time on the earth. Otherwise, study of Vedas was done traditionally through Vedas only and no assisting literature was required.
8. Vedic knowledge is eternal, everlasting and is the oldest one (most-ancient) in the present universe.
Six Darshans have been written by six Rishis who first studied Vedas and accordingly based on Vedas’ knowledge they became capable of writing six Darhsans (shastras). I would like to add that Vedanta shastra, Sankhya shastra, Nyaye shastra, Vaisheshik shastra, Mimansa shastra, Yog shastra written by Vyas Muniji, Kapil Muni, Gautum Rishi, Kannad Rishi , Gemini Rishi and Patanjali Rishi respectively.
9. Yes, Buddhism and Jainism have come into existence within 2,000 years.
10. Yes, dvait, advaita and vashishth advaita are later philosophies but the said philosophies do not tally with eternal and true knowledge of Vedas which emanates direct from God because Vedas only advocate ‘Traitwad’.
I would advise you to study at least one of my books written in English, named Vedanta and eternal Vedas’ philosophy worth Rs.31/- , excluding postal charges. The book may be sent to you on receipt of your postal address, if you desire.
In addition, a list of Vedic books written by me, with the blessings of God is also available on the website, for your information and selection of the books.
Yes, you are right that at present there are several yoga systems such a Gyan, karma, bhakti etc., but study of Vedas reveals that the said are against the Vedas. Vedas tell only about Ashtang Yoga philosophy and education as under-
There are three educations/preach about
(i) knowledge – science etc(Gyan) in Rigveda,
At the time of every creation, knowledge of four Vedas emanates direct from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis in non-sexual creation. In the said process, first of all, the knowledge of Rigveda advents and originates in the heart of Rishi Agni. In this veda though the description of every worldly matter right from straw to God has been mentioned but it speaks especially about matters concerning science of the world. God has described qualities/nature of all materialistic articles of the universe. Therefore, the entire mankind must get the benefit of eternal knowledge of Vedas by knowing about right from straw to Brahma i.e., God. The meaning of “Ric” is that wherein the qualities and nature of all matters have been described and the meaning of veda is knowledge i.e., true knowledge. These words are used in making the pious word “Rigveda”.
(ii) In Yajurveda, the form of true, pious deeds have been preached . So, in the absence of listening of Yajurveda, we can’t know about real moral duties of students, married persons, vanprasthis and sanyasis. Even the moral and social obligations of King, parents, children etc., can’t be known.
(iii) In Samveda there is preach about eternal true worship of God like yajyen, name jaap, practice of ashtang yoga by following which an aspirant realises God/attains salvation.
(iv) Atharvaveda authenticates the above three vedas’ preach. It also contains comprehensive knowledge of medical science.
So, Almighty God who is formless, creates, nurses, destroys and again creates universe. This process is eternal and everlasting. So, at the time of beginning of each non-sexual creation, the knowledge of above four Vedas emanates direct from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis. The knowledge is given by the God to the human-beings for their welfare/benefit because until the knowledge is given by somebody, no one can attain the knowledge. In the beginning of the creation, no preacher, guru, acharya, teacher is present there to teach. So, God gives the knowledge.
11. No comments, please.
I.) Description of yugas based on Vedas and Manusmriti, is as under-
Manusmriti gives the proof in its chapter one that present time of the earth is 7th Manvantar. Uptil now 6 manvantar have passed. Those are Swayambhar, Swarochisch, Ottmi, Tamas, Ryivat and Chakshash, now its 7th manvantar. 71 chaturyugi = 1 manvantar.
There are four yug – Satyug, Treta, Dwapur and Kaliyug.
Satyug = 17 lakhs 28 thousands years
Treta = 12 lakhs 96 thousands years
Dwapur = 8 lakhs 64 thousands years
Kaliyug = 4 lakhs 32 thousands years
The total of four Yugas comes to be 43 lakhs and 20 thousands years which is equal to one Chaturyugi. 71 Chaturyugi i.e., 30 crore 67 lakhs and 20 thousands years equal to one Manvantar and 6 Manvantar have yet passed whose calculation comes to one Arab 84 crore 30 lakhs and 20 thousands years. This is 7th Manvantar and 28 Chaturyugi and the present Kaliyug has passed its time of 5002 years. So, uptil now the age of the earth and Vedas is one Arab 96 crore 8 lakhs 53 thousands and 2 years. Bhagwad Geeta shlok 8/17 also says about this fact.
14 Manvantar= 1 Kalp.
II). After completion of the stipulated period, the next yuga starts and the process continues.
III). No, please. Present kalyug is not an advanced period. Study of ancient granths of Rishis like Mahabharat, Valmiki Ramayan etc., reveals that ancient time was more advanced.
IV). The soul lives in the body of those living beings who do not have heart, eyes or throat. Soul would still vary its position in the body i.e., while being awake, in the space, by which the soul becomes able to fulfill the function of looking.
V). Not only Sankhya Darshan but all six Darshans believe in God. It is our bad luck that we do not listen to Vedas from learned acharya of Vedas and yoga philosophy who is only able to make the students understand the truth. In this connection, Vedas themselves state that listen to Vedas and spiritual preach only from a learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy (Yajurveda mantra 40/10 and Atharvaveda mantra 7/2/1 refer).
Now, people listen to shastras etc., from uneducated saints i.e., from saints who never study Vedas and never practised Ashtang Yoga philosophy and hence the problem. You see, six Darshans have been written by those Rishis who first studied Vedas. On the other hand, those saints are teaching Darshan who donot have even elementary knowledge of Vedas. Even several saints are against Vedas and shastras and such so called saints are declaring that Sankhya shastra does not believe in God. As stated in Bhagwad Geeta where Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj state that Oh! Arjun, you are not able to see me with your naked eyes and the said statement of Sri Krishna Maharaj is true because all Vedas like Yajurveda mantra 40/4 states that no organ like ear, eye, nose, skin or tongue and mind/intellect is able to realise or know the Almighty God. To know the God, Vedic education and Ashtang Yoga Philosophy mentioned therein, is to be practised and when such practice will be done then the above quoted all senses will become dead, the Yogi will attain Samadhi to realise God. At this juncture only, Yogi/Rishi becomes able to know the eternal reality of Vedas and ashtang yoga philosophy. I mean to say, Sankhya shastra sutra 1/57 is being used as proof that Sankhya Darshan does not believe God, which is totally man made false theory. Worldly meaning of the sutra is thus the existence of Almighty God will not be proved.
Secondly the meaning of the previous sutras relates with the creation. Creation is created from non-alive matter prakriti when small part of the power of alive God acts in non –alive prakriti. Sutras tell that creation is not made from God but the creation is made from prakriti. To clear the same Sankhya shastra state that if somebody will tell that creation is made by alone God then “Ishwarasiddhehe” i.e., then the existence of the formless and alive God can’t be proved.
There are several Sankhya Shastra sutras exist which state about the formless omnipresent God. For example- Sankhya shastra sutra 3/56 states –
“Sa Hi Sarvvit Sarvkarta” ,
Meaning= (Hi) because (Sa) He i.e., God (Sarvvit) omniscient/knower of everybody and (Sarvkarta) creator of the world i.e., God is omnipresent/omniscient and creator of the universe.
Next sutra 3/57 states
Meaning = (Idrisheshwarsiddhihi) thus the existence of God (Siddha) has firmly been proved.
Atharvaveda mantra states that those who take only a portion of any mantra/shloka/sutra etc., for their own benefit, I (God) punish them. I mean to say, if a learned Rishi of Vedas’ philosophy would teach Sankhya shastra, he will teach the above quoted sutra with reference to context of previous sutra which states that if somebody would ask about the existence of Almighty God to be seen with eye, then Kapil Muni quoted above sutra- “Ishwarasiddhi”.
That thus, “God will not be there” because as briefed above from Bhagwad Geeta that God cannot be seen or realized with any sense organ like eye etc.
VI). In this connection, nothing can be told except that Vedas’ knowledge is self-proof and every statement, views etc., are required to be tallied with any ved mantra. The views etc., which tally with Vedas are accepted as true only.
My blessings to you.
