Aaquib: Please send me all books. I am from Bhopal.
Swami Ram Swarup: Books are being sent to you by V.P.P (By post).
Manwar: Swami jee, Sat sat Pranam! To leave all works and to see your article on Vedas is the first and foremost duty I have. I know you have the fire in your belly, to practice Truth and propagate to masses as how they can be super human being through Vedic knowledge. But Swamiji, it is not only difficult but also impossible to motivate them as their basics are not clear. It says, “as long as evils are with you, Truth can not touch you”, so Vedic knowledge is difficult for them to understand and which is impossible task. One of the million may be in search of Truth in this earth. Kalyuga is not for Vedic knowledge but without Vedas Dharma can not exist. How to make them Vedic scholar is a biggest challenge? The ultimate aim of Vedas is to liberate your soul through great knowledge and there is no short cut! Your last mail on Almighty God Shiva the creator made me delighted after your deep research ! In fact I am practicing the same with His personal divine order to me. I have seen His manifestations in close quarters when He said, you have to bear pains of your bad actions past or present and I will only help after that. He is right, if we have seen Him then what else, you have achieved what you want in any life. It is difficult and impossible to listen His voice, sermons and order but I am lucky to have His Blessings! Every body comes to Him Devi, devta, bhoot, pret, jin, sayyad, peer, paigamber, kali, mahakali, Vishu bhagwan, Shri Krishna , shri Ram, Hanuman, Kalyug Maharaj, Sani Maharaj, ….you name it…OMG !!! The universe is full of evils ..it’s mind boggling! He also changes the destiny if some body really deserve it instantly
after praying and begging. He is so kind! Hope my new research may be thrilling but the Truth I have encountered through True knowledge of Vedas and interfacing with Lord Shiva is truly incredible. I am blessed! Thanks you so much swami ji, please keep me posted on your new ideas and research. Best Regards Manwar.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. I thank you that you pay your personal attention to read Vedic articles on this site. I’ve nothing in myself, it is all due to grace of God that He inspired me to do Ashtang Yoga Practice under the guidance of my spiritual acharya in the cave in
dense jungle of Rishikesh for a long time. My spiritual master was kind enough that he heartily taught me about Yoga philosophy practically. So, with the blessings of God and my spiritual master, I was enlightened. Now, all my divine deeds, working, service to mankind, writing of books, singing of spiritual songs and cds, daily Yajyen with ved mantras, Vedic preach to devotees/aspirants are dedicated to Almighty God. Because, knowledge is gained only when it
is given by someone, God made me able to understand it very well that the eternal knowledge of Vedas which emanates directly from God in the beginning of earth is the only truth, so the truth is realized by listening of Vedas from acharya, doing daily Yajyen /hawan with ved mantras, name jaap of God and hard practice of Ashtang Yoga under the guidance of learned acharya. So, whatever I speak or write or sing is based on my realization(enlightenment) because mere bookish knowledge
creates several vices/shortcomings like kaam, krodh,mad, lobh, ahankar etc., whereas practical worship as quoted above, is really a bliss awarded by God Himself (Atharvaveda mantra 4/30/3 also refers). Yajurveda mantra 7/48 and Bhagwad Geeta shloka 2/47 preach us that we the human-beings are free to do deeds either pious or sins but result is awarded by Almighty God in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively.
So, it is duty of all learned acharyas to spread Vedic knowledge at their level best, amongst those humans who are desirous of the same. Vedas tell that the learned must destroy the illusion from society. So we’ve only to do our level best to spread knowledge, to destroy illusion which generates problems, tensions, diseases, sorrows, injustice, blind faith etc., in the society. So, we must work without having desire of the result thereof. Let the result be left in the hands of God Who as stated in mantra above awards it. Evil means illusion and illusion (evil) is destroyed by knowledge. Except knowledge, there is no other way to destroy the same. If a student
desires to pass examination, but he does not study hard then his only desire will be of no use. So, million or one in million, if desire then only desire will also be of no use. In several replies to
questions, I often write that you’ve put the question only but you would not try hard to worship or make contact with learned acharya of Vedas to learn spiritualism, to decide to take firm unchangeable decision to know that Who is God. Nowadays, I’ve experienced that people often do not work hard to first decide the Eternal, Immortal, Formless, Unchangeable, and unchallengeable God Whom he should worship. They follow others and start worshiping directly i.e., without confirming that Who is God and hence the problem.
Satyug, treta, dwapur, kalyug are calculation of time period and is also non-alive matter. In this connection, I paste my article below:-
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
So, non-alive matter can never cause any obstacle/hurdle in worship or in any action – good or bad, which is being taken or will be taken by anyone. So, we can’t blame any time-period. In this connection, Vedas-shastras tell that blame yourself, your mind (mann) or your intellect(buddhi) who are after materialistic articles of world, pomp and show, pride etc., due to which often a person becomes helpless, lazy and becomes unable to spare time and to do hard tapasya, to do real worship, while discharging all our moral duties towards family, society and nation (Yajurveda mantra
40/2, 40/14 etc., refer) so, our duty is to spread Vedic knowledge through yajyen, preach, books if possible by Vedic spiritual Cds, let rest is in the hands of God.
As Napoleon, used to tell that there is no word as ‘impossible’ in his dictionary similarly all learned of Vedas never lose heart and try their level best to spread Vedic knowledge. Vedas tell that deeds done by anyone will never go in vain i.e., it will sure give effect to those who are desirous of gaining. If we become nervous then we will be declared by God as lazy and selfish etc. Vedas have unlimited knowledge but main knowledge are three educations-
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.
Main objective of all four Vedas is to destroy the illusion to realize God, while discharging all our moral duties. Meaning of Shiv or Sadashiv is benevolent God who is Formless, Almighty, unchangeable, unchallengeable and who alone has power to create nurse and destroy the universe and again create it. Because God was one, is one and shall always remain one. Amongst several Ved mantras, Yajurveda mantra 27/36 also states- ‘Na Jataha Na Janishyate’ i.e., equivalent to this
God, neither other God was born, nor shall be born in future. Rigveda Mantra 7/104/14 also states that those who worship false God and Goddesses, God punishes them. So, we have to follow Vedic preach and not preach which is against the Vedas.
As Yajurveda Mantra 40/8 also states that God is ‘Shukram’ i.e., He was Almighty, has all power and needs no assistance to control the universe or to do any divine deeds. He alone is enough to do divine deeds. I mean to say He needs no assistance like Yamraj to award death etc., no Indra devta to cause rain etc. He is ‘Akayam’ without body, ‘Asnaviram’ i.e., without nervous system, ‘Avarnam’ i.e., no hole cannot be made into Him, ‘Shuddham’ i.e., He is the purest, it means
there is no illusion which can overcome God. ‘Apaapvidham’ God is always away from all sins and from facing result of any deed etc. So, He cannot speak, because He has no mouth, tongue etc.
Actually, being Almighty when He is able to tell or to inspire the people or to make them understand about any matter without any tongue, so its necessity is not required by God. We are souls who needs assistance like tongue to speak, eye to see etc. That is why, when in the beginning of every earth, God gives knowledge of four Vedas to four Rishis then the knowledge of God with the power of Almighty God automatically is originated in the heart of four Rishis. In Vedas,
there is no existence of Devi-Devta, bhoot, pret, jin, sayyad, kali, mahakali, Kalyug Maharaj, Sani Maharajji etc. Vedas only tell to worship one Formless, Almighty God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. Yet, those who believe it and worship it they may go ahead on their own.
Luck (destiny) is always in our hands, say Vedas i.e., who works hard towards right path i.e., according to Vedas, Shastras etc., and worships God daily, he destroys the effect of previous lives’ deeds and makes his future bright. For example- Samveda mantra 830 states that he who daily offers aahutis in the yajyen/Havan with Ved mantras, he makes his future bright. Rigveda mantra 10/135/4 states that those who make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and under guidance of
acharya, they destroy their sorrows and attain salvation. Again, my blessings to you.
