J P S: Pratah vandaniya Guruji Maharaj ko sashtang pranam. Param pujya maharaj ji with your tremendous blessing and undue favour, I have got a pious occasion to attend the Annual Yajyen for the 64 days complete. I have got a tremendous spiritual knowledge and pleasure. I can not express my complete views due to my weakness of explaining capability but I think these are just like “Goonge ka gud” which taste also can not be explained by him. I have no words to express here my pleasure and achievements. Maharaj ji, I request your self to guide me how I can extend my Agnihotra at my home. May I add Ahutis repeating with Gayatri Mantra or with Ved Mantras. The Yajyen done by Arya Samaj Purohit May be some fruitful while he is not a Brahma or a Rishi. Kindly guide me how I can extend the pious deeds of Yajyen in the absence of yourself i.e. a Brahma or a Rishi. In the anticipation of your valuable blessing.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to you all, my son. It was your efforts and faith in Vedas and acharya that as a result Almighty God blessed you to attend annual yajyen to obtain best pious result of your deeds. My blessings are always with you and your family.
You must do daily agnihotra at your home both times, name jaap and yogabhyaas, which you learnt here. God has preached everything in Vedas. God has preached about Pooranmasi and amavasya Yajyen to be done at the residence of acharya which gives the benefit of agnihotra done in your homes to be converted into yajyen. So, twice or once in a year or as many as time you can come to ved mandir are enough to gain further knowledge and complete yajyen. In the old age i.e., reaching at the age of 75 years , one should try to take sanyaas or try to dedicate whole day , while residing in family, in doing only tapasya. So, you can do, as it suits you. You can repeat aahutis of Gayatri mantra remembering its meaning in heart. Again, my blessings to you.
Ayesha: During ganesh chathurti or any other festival made by man prasad is distributed so should we eat that or not? as this festival is against Vedas.
Swami Ram Swarup: I’m happy that you know that Ganesh chaturthi has not been mentioned in Vedas.
So, being against Vedas, one should try to avoid to participate in it. Anyhow if for one or the other reason, sometimes it happens then to take Prasad and to eat it is not bad because Prasad is anna (food) and we should never disrespect food.
Ayesha: Who was ganesh actually? Whom people think as godl ike Ram, Krishna was king.
Swami Ram Swarup: Ganesh has been told as the son of Shivji Maharaj in Puranns. However, the said matter is not mentioned in Vedas. So, being against the Vedas, learned never worships Ganesh because Vedas tell only to worship a Formless, Almighty, Omnipresent, immortal, unchangeable, unchallengeable God, Who creates, nurses and destroys the universe.
Amit: Swami ji I want to know which mantra is good for my education?
Swami Ram Swarup: You are advised to do daily jaap and hawan with Gayatri mantra
along with its meaning. In the end you should pray to God in heart to make your education better.
Mukesh: Why Tiger is unsafe?
Swami Ram Swarup: Man is after the jungles i.e., forests are being exploited, trees
are being cut randomly which is the house of tigers. Poachers are also killing tigers and other animals of jungle for their skin. So, tigers are unsafe.
