N G Gupta: Pujya Guruji Sadar Charan Sparsh, Mere Pitaji ka Dehaavsaan pichle mahine ko hua hai. Mere Pujya pitaji Hindi Bhasha ke Professor the. Unki umar 82 Saal thi. Ab unka dasva aur terva vidhi ke liye har ek jan apni rai de raha hai. Maine unke jite ji unki jitni seva ki wo mai, meri Pujya Mataji aur mera parivar (patni aur bachhe jante hai). Kya sirf ek sidhi sadi puja aur hawan karke garibo ko Khana khud mai mandir ja kar khiladu to kya sab vidhi jo Pujya Brahman log kah rahe hai wo na karu to chalega. Kya sach me gau daan karne se atma vatarni nadi par karta hai ya apne karmo se swarg prapt karta hai
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.
Apney jeetey jee jo apne pitaji ka putra honey ke naatey seva kee wahi mahaan hai. Usey hee shastra Shradh evam tarpann kehtey hain arthat apney shraddhdha se seva kee weh shraddha aur seva se apke pitaji tript hue weh tarpann kehlata hai. Mrityu par to sabhi ka shareer yahin agni mein bhasma ho jaata hai tab Shradh aur tarpann kaisa arthat Shradh aur tarpann nahin kiya ja sakta kyunki iska varnann ved-shastra mein nahin hai.
Agar aap ved-shastra par shraddha rakhtey hain to Yajurveda mantra 40/15 ke anusaar bhi mrityu ke baad shareer bhasma kar diya jaata hai aur uske baad koi karma karna shesh nahin rehta.
Manushya vartmann ke jeevan mein kiya hue vedic shubh karmon ke adhar par hee moksha ka sukh prapt kar sakta hai aur koi rasta vedon mein nahin kaha.

Anna Daan/Shradh to departed soul
Vedas are eternal knowledge which emanate direct from God at the beginning of every universe. Being the knowledge direct from God, each statement of Ved mantra is also eternal truth.
Thirty-ninth chapter of Yajurveda states about death. The soul when leaves the human body remains under control of a divine air named “Sutratma vayu”. Mantras tell that after wandering unconsciously for thirteen days in the space and planets like Sun, moon, etc., soul comes again on this earth inside the vegetation. Then either the soul enters the male living being’s body according to pious deeds and sins through pores or is duly mixed within vegetation and taken by a male person. Then the soul takes rebirth through parents.
This process is an eternal truth. However, if soul is religious and has done hard tapasya then the soul gets salvation. Only soul has to face the result of previous lives’ deeds through living being’s body. Since soul is alive whereas body is non-alive matter. So body does not face the result of deeds. When soul has gone out of body then how the soul will see, hear, taste, smell or touch or will be benefited of any pious deed etc.? therefore Vedas do not tell about the present system of shradh etc.
However, the pious deeds done to remember the departed soul by means of devotion or organizing the holy Yajyen with Ved mantras, its result never goes in vain and the family is benefited.
Departed soul never meets again please. Even departed soul, when take rebirth, forgets every event of his previous life. As regards dreams Atharvaveda states that dreams of departed soul are not good so it is in your interest and welfare that you do not see dreams.
Rebirth and different yonis
Idea of Yajurveda mantra 39/6 is that after leaving the human body, the soul goes to several matters in the space etc., and then according to good or bad deeds takes next birth. Yajurveda mantra 39/7 states that those souls who do sins they take birth with violent nature like wolves, bear and those who give fear to others in human body, they take birth in body with dangerous nature like crocodiles, poisonous snakes, tigers, lions, wild boars etc., those who give fear to others, they will be of timid nature also like rabbits, deer etc. Those who give justice and make others fearless, they will take next birth in a fearless nature. Those who are indulged in illusion, they will take birth in a place where the atmosphere will be full of illusion (Yajurveda mantra 40/3 also refers).
Those who are learned Yogis but are not yet attained salvation, they will take next birth in a place where there will not be any illusion but divine enlightenment. Those who have not controlled their five senses, five perceptions and mind then in the next birth they will be of restless nature. But those who have controlled their senses etc., will be of calm, peaceful nature. Those who have followed eternal knowledge, they will also be of peaceful nature in the next birth.
Atharvaveda mantra 9/10/16 states that those who are not learned in this birth, they will get the birth as “sthavar” rooted plants etc., as birds and as animals etc., and those who are learned they take next birth as rishi-munis. So the soul based on his sins or pious deeds takes birth in upper class or lower class. The above said Atharvaveda mantra also states that the soul in the human body knows each and everything that is each outer matter of the world but due to involvement in illusion, soul does not know himself.
As Manusmriti states in shlok 1/43-46 the soul according to deeds takes birth as animal, non-violent deer etc., carnivores like tiger, leopards etc., devils, human beings. The said are of “jarayuj” type i.e., those who take birth from their skin i.e., tissue. Soul takes birth as “undaj” type i.e., those who hatch from eggs like birds, snakes, crocodiles, fish, tortoise, etc. Soul takes birth in “Swedaj” type i.e., those who take birth from sweat, humidity, moisture, for-example, lice, mosquitoes, flies, bed-bugs, etc.
Soul also takes birth in Udbhij i.e., who takes birth from within the earth like plants who emerge from seeds etc., and are stable at one place like trees etc. So there are four above quoted main origin (yonis) of which the total number comes as 84 lakhs.
Avinash: What do Vedas say about same gender relationships of today?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. Whatever you asked, is an unnatural act and has not been mentioned in Vedas. You see, the definition of pious deeds and sins has been defined by learned acharya and Vedas themselves state that to do the deed according to Vedas is pious act and deeds done against the Vedas are sins.
