Pankaj: Sir, Charan Sparsh, Yajurveda mantra 7/48 state that every human being is free to do any deed good or bad but result will be awarded from the God. Now I have one question that is, Suppose some body use to destroyed our entire family’s happiness shall we wait for the result which come from God. Or let them destroyed the happiness or should we teach them lesson to understand what they are doing. As you have stated the life to small. If we loose 4-5 years in that only means we have loose 15% of life in that case of waiting of God’s result.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, human being is free to do any deed but their
results thereof are awarded by God. There are three types of deeds: Sanchit, Prarabhdh and Kriyaman, as given below:
1. Prarabdh deeds are those which we did in our previous lives. The result of these deeds has been fixed by God and is to be faced in present life. However, the effect of bad deeds of such Prarabhdh deeds can be destroyed by doing pious deeds/true worship in present life, keeping ourselves away
from all sins. That is why, it is said that Prarabhdh (Luck) is always in our hands and is changeable, as said above. Now if in present life, a new Kriyaman deed is created by anybody, as stated by you regarding destroying family’s happiness, etc., then either one must seek the help of administrative authorities and if time does not permit then one must try protect himself and his family.
My blessings to you. You may send any query again if it arises please.
Heeranand: Is there any emergency or quick management to control non-brahmcharya act during feeling of bad thoughts?
Swami ramswarup: Yes please. To maintain the Brahmacharya quickly, adorable Bhisham Pitahmaha himself said to Yudhishthir that one should try for not entering the bad thought in his mind. For example, if the bad thought is to enter the mind, but still it is outside the mind, then the devotee should immediately cut off the bad thought outside so that it does not enter the mind. You are also advised to read my book “Brahmacharya – dukh nivarak divya mani” in which immense knowledge has been given on the subject based on Vedas. Book can be sent on receipt of your postal, if you so desire. I also paste one of my articles for your knowledge:
Controlling the flow of negative thoughts
Though it is a very difficult task to control the inflow of negative thoughts but yet it is not impossible for a brave aspirant. In Mahabharat, Bheeshma Pitamah also states that Oh Yudhishthir! There is an easy way to control the incoming bad thoughts that the person when thinks that the bad thought is about to come then immediately he should stop the same outside and must start to think or reflect over the pious views.
Most of the saints based on mere bookish knowledge also state that it is very easy to stop bad thoughts that one must keep his mind pure, he should not think bad or he should start name jaap of God etc., etc., but Vedas as well as experiences of learned Rishi-munis donot agree with the said statement.
Though the statement of Bheeshma Pitamah has got power and effects based on the hard tapasya of Bheeshma Pitamah. So to stop the negative/bad thoughts, one will have to control his senses, perceptions and mind. To control the same, he requires to listen to Vedas and do asan, prannayam and meditation. He must also do daily havan even with Gayatri mantra. The said knowledge will be gained through the advise of learned acharya of Vedas.
Otherwise, mere statements of the saints and others based on bookish knowledge has gone in vain as yet and will go in vain in future too. Selfless services are also done by those who have become desire free by adopting the above said knowledge because the said knowledge makes man to control the senses and mind and makes man desire-less.
Anonymous: Swamiji charansparsh! Please forgive me for I am writing to you after a very long time. I think I have come to a point where I realised that there is nothing above Vedas philosophy in my search of understanding the eternal truth. I wasted 3 precious years in researching more and caught up in misunderstanding and wrongpath. I have now decided to indulge completely into practicing what I gained as knowledge from you. Please bless me to concentrate and practice the real worship of God. I want to do daan, pooja, and sangtikaran. I will be regularly in touch with you swamiji once again please forgive me.
Swami Ram Swarup: Your views are highly appreciated please. I want to inform and congratulate you that Almighty God is really pleased and I too. The sunlight destroys the darkness. Similarly, proper knowledge of Vedas destroys all the illusion and generates light/wisdom in the mind/intellect and thus the devotee attains Arth (finance), dharma(religion), Kaam (fulfillment of pure desires) and Moksha (and attains salvation). Thus he really attains the real target of human life.
My heartiest blessings to you to get progress at every step of your life. Some spiritual books written by me, VCDs & Audio CDs are available, which will give you immense spiritual knowledge. The books/CDs, etc. can be sent on receipt of your postal address please.
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.
