Rishi: Swamiji ko mera naman, Swamiji jaisa ki gita main likha hai insan is janam main apne pichle karmo ka phal bhogta hai. Agar kisi ke mata pita shharirik roop se dukh bhog rahe hain to ye kya unke pichle karmo ka phal hai ya is janam main kiye gaye unke karmo ka phal hai.Is janam main kiye gaye galat karmo ka phal kya agle janam main milega. is baat ki kya guarantee hai ki is janam ke karmo ka phal isi janam main mile. Jaisa ki itne saare log corruption phaila rae hain, in sab ko is janam main saza milegi. VED kya kehte hain.krypa margdarshan karen iska koi
answer nai mil raha hai?? OM…..
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Vedon mein kaha hai ki beta weh hai jo apne maa-pita ko sukh dey. Agar kisi ke map-baap pichley burey karmon ke karann is janam mein dukh bhog rahein hain, to betey ka farz hai ki sirf unkee sewa karey aur Shrawann kumar ki tarah un maa-pita kee sewa kartey hue Yajyen, Yogabhyas karta hue jo bhee unhein medicine chahiye, weh deiney ki koshish karey. Vedon mein kaha hai ki is janam mein kiya hua karmon ka phal is janam
mein nahin milta. Kewal is janam mein kiye un burey karmon ka phal is janam mein milta hai jo vedon ke khilaf aur ved ke gyata Rishi-muni ke khilaf burey karma kiye hon. isliye corruption aadi burey karmon ka phal bhee agley janamon mein milta hai. Is janam mein to aisey log dhan aadi kamaa kar shareerik nashwan khushiyan batorte hain. Yeh Sab karamaphal ki baatein Rigveda mantra 10/135/1,2 mein kahin gayee hain.
Rishi: Swamiji charan sparsh, Is janam main jo log paise wale hain aur bhautik sukh bhog rahe hain kya ye sab inke pichle karmo ka phal hai? aur ye inke is janam ka purusharth hai..agar koi insaan is janam main gharib hai to kya wo agle janam main amir ban sakta hai.. agar han to kaise?? Vedon mein iska varnan hai kya? Agar koi insaan khub hard work karke bhi result nai prapt kar ra hai to iska matlab kya? Pichle karam ya poor planning or GOD’s wish?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Answer has been given as above. Agar koi insaan khoob hard work karke bhi result nahin prapt karta to iska matlab yeh hai ki weh pichle karmon ka bhog bhog raha hai aur is janam mein is karann uska concentration of mind (ekagrata) nahin ban pa rahee. Han, Vedic bhakti se pichle karma khatam hote hain aur achcha phal milne lagta hai parantu aise purush ne is janam mein Vedic bhakti nahin ki. I now paste my answer to this:-
Both deeds i.e., past deeds and the present life’s deeds make the future bright. Duly influenced by the effect of past deeds, the environments to go ahead in the right path are made available and the
present hardworking encashes it. For example- due to the result of past pious deeds, an individual
takes birth in a well to do family where he can achieve worldly progress as regards science, wealth etc., as well as spiritualism which is the main motto of human life but several persons avail only wealth and get indulged in illusion i.e., do not encash the result of previous lives’ pious deeds. Also anyone gets good marks in examination due to both deeds.
Secondly, if a person has got human life, it means he has sure some treasure of pious deeds of previous lives and is entitled to get progress in life by doing hardest effort presently. So, if we have been provided with an opportunity as human being by the God then we should do hard work following the Vedic path which makes our future bright.
Similarly, it covers the situation of job. So, if an individual still struggles hard to seek the job based on his qualification etc., he can get good job either it is mentioned in his luck or not.
Bholi: Nowadays I have completely lost my peace of heart please tell me when will i get the complete bliss and peace?
Swami Ram Swarup: Complete bliss and peace resides within ourselves. Being indulged in illusion, people see dreams, make plans, increase desires and try to seek peace etc., in materialistic articles, pomp and show, pride and wealth etc. The said vices help the people to continue daily worship according to Vedas and holy granths to control senses, perceptions and intellect. So, the person who while discharging all his duties mentioned in Vedas and holy granths, does daily worship, hard practice of Yoga and thus tries to realise God also, he attains, health, wealth and permanent peace. So, I would advise you to do Gayatri Jaap and hawan.
Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.
After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.
The Gayatri mantra is as follows —
OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA
DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT
Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.
Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar, Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigveda mantra 1/164/46 says God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained.
VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus Viraat is the name of God. Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti. Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form. Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.
AGNI = From dhatu, “ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., Omniscient. That is, knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.
VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is He in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.
HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.
VAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vayu word is made. Its meaning is He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name of God is Vayu.
TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made meaning He who is self made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken, unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun, moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.
ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.
ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name is Aditya.
PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.
BHUHU = “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe, is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.
BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow, and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the name of God is Bhuvaha.
SWAHA = i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.
SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.
DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.
VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme and acceptable for worship.
BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable English word of Sanskrit word, “SHUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)
TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.
DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because
YAHA = the God
NAHA = our,
DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)
PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)
“We meditate the God who is the base of lives’ of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration”.
Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things —-
Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.
Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.
Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.
How to do havan
Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.
Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.
Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.
Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand’s finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajyen. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times
And read some of my books if possible.
Ramesh: 1) Can tulsi sticks be used in gayatri havan?
2) Can we directly start gayatri havan eg like not taking water for 3 times and all other things?
3) What all should be offered in havan at last what is composer like coconut and what all will it be ok if we don’t offer coconut in havan? Kindly guide.
Swami Ram Swarup: (1) Yes, please, Tulsi sticks can be used in Gayatri hawan but
only those sticks are used which are completely dry i.e., green Tulsi sticks should not be used.
(2) Yes, you may start Gayatri hawan directly but in this way, one would loose the benefit of pious deed of aachman. Aachman also purifies a man and enables to do hawan traditionally.
(3) In a Yajyen performed at large scale, purohit and other learned acharyas tell to offer coconut in Poornnahuti, within which desi ghee and sweetened material like jaggery, gud etc., are put otherwise in daily agnihotra at home it is not needed but those who can afford, they can also offer coconut in the end of the hawan.
