Deepak: I also want to know how we can know our ishta deva from our kundli
Swami Ram Swarup: There is only one Ishta dev of the universe, which is formless, omnipresent, Almighty God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe and no horoscope or kundli is required to know the God because unlimited knowledge has been preached in Vedas and other holy granths.

Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. The creator of the universe is Almighty, formless and omnipresent God. He has showered blessings upon us in the shape of giving us the knowledge of four Vedas. He has made some rules and regulations and has also given the orders/instructions to be obeyed. To obey his orders, is the observance of religion or pious act otherwise a sin. God has told all human-beings to take vegetarian food besides He has given order not to take non-vegetarian food. So, to take vegetarian food is not a sin. Secondly, every crop, vegetable etc., has its short span of life. That is why, when the crop gets ripened, then it becomes senseless and can be consumed. I also paste one of my relevant articles in this regard.
Vegetarians and non-vegetarians are two categories. Accordingly the construction of body i.e., teeth, small intestine and large intestine, and digestive system has been made by God.
Human beings come in vegetarian category. Our teeth and digestive system always differ from cat, dog, lion etc. Some animals like cow, buffalo, goat, elephant etc., also come in Vegetarian category. We take water by sipping but the animals who are non-vegetarian i.e., meat eater they do not sip but lick. Whatever we eat, that food develops our mind and body and creates natural behaviour. For example if we take a cub who is newly born and nurse him by giving milk and thereafter vegetarian food only and on the other hand to another cub we provide him meat, then when they will be younger their habit will differ. The cub taking vegetarian food will be as violent as the cub who took meat.
Now medical science also says that the energy in vegetarian food is more than that in non-vegetarian food. Vegetarian food gives long and ill free life. Vegetarian elephant is stronger than non-vegetarian lion.
Nobody can take meat until one gives violence to animals or birds etc., which is a sin. Our stomach becomes a graveyard where we gather meat by eating. As regards life in vegetarians it does not harm to them while plucking from plants etc. because every vegetarian plant has short life and is meant to give food to the human life. But to us meat is not entitled. Science has recently told that non-vegetarians are more susceptible to cancer disease and teeth degeneration as compared to vegetarians.
Non-vegetarian food is prohibited as per Vedas, shastras, Upnishads and all the ancient holy books. In vegetarian food an ocean of calories and vitamins is available by the mercy of God. Please check from a dietician about the same. Because it is lengthy one and I cannot explain here. For example dal, is full of proteins, soyabean has more protein than any non-vegetarian food, which has ability to inhibit cancer also where as non-vegetarian doesnot. Green vegetables like palak, methi, etc., are the richest source of iron and vitamin A. So is the case of milk, curd, rice, fruit, etc., -etc.
The knowledge of Vedas emanates direct from God at the time of beginning of earth. So in this creation, the Vedas are the oldest knowledge originated about one Arab 97 crore years ago. In all four Vedas, God has prohibited non-vegetarian, please.
Atharvaveda mantra 6/140/1 also states that Oh God! May my teeth, like the teeth of wolf not take non-vegetarian. Non-vegetarian has only some limited energy and vitamins whereas cow-milk is a complete food. Dry fruits, vegetables, curd, fruits etc., i.e., all other vegetable food has been made by God for us which are more beneficial than non-vegetarian food. Manusmriti shloka 2/177 strictly prohibits to take non-vegetarian food and any type of addiction. The nature of the animals or human beings who take non-vegetarian food is more violent than those who take vegetarian food. In this connection, you may consider lion, tiger, wolves, jackals etc. As regards power of vegetarian you may think about elephant who is the most powerful than other human/living beings and is vegetarian.
Onion and garlic are included as vegetarian food and full of vitamins, they protect from heat stroke, make stomach strong and make strong eye sight etc., but both are of Tamogunni nature and therefore only Brahmachari must not take the same.
Anonymous: I have a daugther who is born deaf. However now due to intense Therapy and the use of hearing aid she is now able to talk a bit. I believe in Karmas,but guide me if there is any specific mantras or any sound therapy I can do to ameliorate the situation of my daughter. She can chants OM and can say Twamewa mata Chabita twamewa..but with wrong pronunciation. Is there any specific pujas I can do? I’m doing gayatri Yajyen @ home. Bless us. Awaiting for a reply from you. Pranaam.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to your loving daughter for a long, happy life. In addition, I pray “May Dyutima beti be alright soon.” It is really good thing you daily perform havan with Gayatri mantra. If you had happened to come here then I could have given you more spiritual education. Otherwise, you may study my spiritual Vedic books. It will give you immense knowledge and further progress in spiritualism.
