Vinayak: Dandvat pranam swamiji, my name is Vinayak. 1st time I visit the site I asking only one question who is superior in this bramhand which is Gayatri/Bramha/Shiv. Who is Parbramha?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Parbrahma is formless, omnipresent, omniscient and Almighty God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. Yajurveda mantra 27/36 states “Na jataha na janishyate” i.e. no one equivalent to God, has either been born or shall be born.”
So, He is only the supreme in the universe. Rigveda Mantra 10/129/7 states that “God is the lord of universe and all souls and prakriti always remain under his control and work under Him. Gayatri is a chchand and Gayatri is also a Ved mantra. Ved mantras emanate direct from God at the beginning of every non-sexual creation (Rigveda mantra 10/129/1,2,3 refer), Brahma is also learned acharya who knows four Vedas but somewhere its meaning is also formless, Almighty God as reported above. Shiv means he who is beneficial to all universe and He is only formless Brahma.
Question can arise that Shiv, Brahma, Gayatri, Par Brahma are being considered one, formless God. Yes, Please. Yajurveda mantra 1/164/46 states- “Ekam Sadrupa Vipraha Bahuda vadanti” i.e., God is one but based on His divine qualities and deeds, His names are innumerable.
NK: Namaste swamiji, I always wanted to ask this. can a women participate in haven when she is having monthly activity. can she put samagri in the haven kund. please let me know.I hear different things from different people. Swamiji, thanks for your help. Your guidance has always helped me.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. I have given the answer several times on website, the article regarding which is pasted below.
God has given knowledge of four Vedas to the souls which reside in human body. God has not given the knowledge to bodies. Soul realizes God and attains salvation and not bodies. Soul is unchangeable and immortal whereas bodies are changeable and are destroyed. So souls either in the body of man or woman is entitled to chant all the mantras, to listen preach and to worship God. According to Yajurveda mantra 31/11 there is no any caste system except humanity based on good or bad qualities.
Almighty God is the purest matter in the universe. You see God is omnipresent therefore also is present in our stomach, stool, urine, blood, etc., but no any matter is able to touch Him. He (God) thus always remains the purest. So woman can continue her daily hawan also.
P: Sir, charan sparsh, sir day by day my family problems has been increasing I don’t know where as I am doing havan twice a weak Saturday and Sunday for so long what would be the reason .
Swami Ram Swarup: My several blessings to you. Problems are due to one’s own previous lives’ and present lives’ deeds and we must never be worried due to this. You know, life is a struggle which we have to face. So, we must try our level best to solve the problems happily. You do havan, this is great pious deeds and one day you will get its return in the form of great pleasure. My blessings are always with you. You are also advised to brief the problem to me to get advice to solve it, if possible.
Anonymous: Beti ka vivah kab hoga? Vivah me problems aa rahe hai.uski umar 25 ho jayegi.plz aap hame batao ki kya upasana karnese uska vivha ache ladke se hoga?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, upasana minimizes and rather helps us to solve the problem. You are therefore advised to do daily havan both times. In the end of the havan, all the members of the family must pray to God to make the match earliest. However, you know that God helps those who help themselves. Therefore, the parent must try their level best to seek a suitable match.
