Jothy: Hello swamiji as per Wikipedia Spiritual Intelligence means “Spiritual intelligence is the central and most fundamental of all the intelligences, because it becomes the source of guidance for the others.” Swami ji I would like to know in which part of our 4 vedas “Boons” & Boon giving by Rishies or Rajarishies are mentioned. Not as an event or characters in reference to our puranas & ithihasas. But as a reference as a hymn or verses where it directly talks about the qualities of a Rishis, his powers or abilities of granting boons to others with his power of tapas with the help of that supreme one.
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, spiritual vedic knowledge is central and fundamental of all intelligences. God has told in Vedas that all human should follow vedic knowledge, to gain knowledge and thereafter intelligence. All Vedas state that after following vedic path and doing daily Yajyen, name jaap and hardest practice of ashtang yog, a rishi attains Samadhi and realizes God. Atharvaved mantra 4/11/7 states that such Rishi becomes equivalent to God but not God. The Rishis bless the deserving devotees. For example- Shringi Rishi blessed King Dashtrath in Yajyen and inturn King Dashrath got four sons.

Priti: If child born in pitru paksha its good or bad?
Swami Ram Swarup: The matter of pritu paksh/teva/navgrah pujan/manglik and kaal sarp yog, etc. do not exist in Vedas. So learned of Vedas and Yog philosophy do not accept it, being unauthentic and being against the eternal knowledge of Vedas. Therefore, you need not to worry.
