Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste. I always try to send the answers to the questions of the loving readers immediately. I send the answers to the site which is controlled by my loving disciple Kapil who sends the serial wise answer to concerned persons. However, he being busy sometimes delays answers which is not his fault. I now paste my reply below-
1(a). The next birth is given by God based on the sanchit karmas. There are three types of karmas- Sanchit, Prarabdh and Kriyamann for which my article is pasted below and if you have still some query, you may send again.
Three types of Deeds
There are three types of deeds (karmas) – sanchit, prarabhadh and kriyamann. Suppose one soul has to take birth (body). It means he has to face total number of deeds of his all previous lives and these deeds are called sanchit karmas but sanchit deeds are huge/unlimited and cannot be faced in one life. So the karmas which can be faced in one life are called prarabhadh (luck-destiny). So God has not made our luck at His own but Almighty God has taken the deeds which we have already done.
Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clarifies that human being is free to do any deed good or bad but God only awards the result. Now the balance deeds from sanchit deeds will be counted in the next life. Now the deeds which we do in our day today present life are called kriyamann.
If we do pious deeds according to Vedas, shastras and holy books and based on pious preaches of Rishi, Muni/learned saints then our all sanchit deeds are burnt and we can get salvation. Human beings are free in the matter of doing deeds good or bad. But result will be awarded by God. So we must worship and do pious deeds under guidance of a learned Guru. One should go always ahead for hard working, pious deeds, worship to make future bright himself. One should always work hard towards a right path.
Worship does not mean that we are free to discharge only our family duties, education, etc., but rather it is a sin. We have to get progress in both way at a time i.e., spiritualism and worldly progress i.e., science, education, duties towards family etc. God creates the universe according to His eternal law framed in Vedas which are always unchangeable and unchallengeable. So we have to follow the law of God always to get long happy life.
Rebirth and different yonis
Idea of Yajurveda mantra 39/6 is that after leaving the human body, the soul goes to several matters in the space etc., and then according to good or bad deeds takes next birth. Yajurveda mantra 39/7 states that those souls who do sins they take birth with violent nature like wolves, bear and those who give fear to others in human body, they take birth in body with dangerous nature like crocodiles, poisonous snakes, tigers, lions, wild boars etc., those who give fear to others, they will be of timid nature also like rabbits, deer etc. Those who give justice and make others fearless, they will take next birth in a fearless nature. Those who are indulged in illusion, they will take birth in a place where the atmosphere will be full of illusion (Yajurveda mantra 40/3 also refers).
Those who are learned Yogis but are not yet attained salvation, they will take next birth in a place where there will not be any illusion but divine enlightenment. Those who have not controlled their five senses, five perceptions and mind then in the next birth they will be of restless nature. But those who have controlled their senses etc., will be of calm, peaceful nature. Those who have followed eternal knowledge, they will also be of peaceful nature in the next birth.
Atharvaveda mantra 9/10/16 states that those who are not learned in this birth, they will get the birth as “sthavar” rooted plants etc., as birds and as animals etc., and those who are learned they take next birth as rishi-munis. So the soul based on his sins or pious deeds takes birth in upper class or lower class. The above said Atharvaveda mantra also states that the soul in the human body knows each and everything that is each outer matter of the world but due to involvement in illusion, soul does not know himself.
As Manusmriti states in shlok 1/43-46 the soul according to deeds takes birth as animal, non-violent deer etc., carnivores like tiger, leopards etc., devils, human beings. The said are of “jarayuj” type i.e., those who take birth from their skin i.e., tissue. Soul takes birth as “undaj” type i.e., those who hatch from eggs like birds, snakes, crocodiles, fish, tortoise, etc. Soul takes birth in “Swedaj” type i.e., those who take birth from sweat, humidity, moisture, for-example, lice, mosquitoes, flies, bed-bugs, etc.
Soul also takes birth in Udbhij i.e., who takes birth from within the earth like plants who emerge from seeds etc., and are stable at one place like trees etc. So there are four above quoted main origin (yonis) of which the total number comes as 84 lakhs.
1(b) As has been clarified above that rebirth in human-life is given when sins and pious deeds to be faced, become equal. Once a person follows Vedic true path and attains salvation by doing daily Yajyen, havan, name jaap of God and hard practice of Ashtang Yoga, then no deed (karma) is left behind to be borne and thus he attains salvation i.e., destroys the cycle of death and birth etc. Due to lack of knowledge of Vedas now people have become habitual to pursue blind faith and falsehood and as a result being ignorant, they do not bother to face the tension, problems, sorrows, sickness etc., (duly indulged in illusion).
In this regard, Vyas Muni in Mahabharat epic has written a shloka meaning of which is-
“We see that daily dead bodies are being burnt on pyre but the remaining persons who burnt the relatives or friends etc., on pyre, they get indulged again in illusion/worldly affairs, so deeply that they forget the fact of their own death”.
So rebirth will take place in human life if the said law is fulfilled otherwise rebirth is in other living beings bodies. So, the present sins quoted by you will be faced according to the law.
1(c) As above.
2. The present human life is blessed by God to destroy the effect of all the previous deeds. So, if a person does not follow the Vedic law even in the present life – to get up early in the morning for exercise, walk etc, daily hawan, name jaap of God and practice of Ashtang Yoga Philosophy, it means he is inviting several diseases, tensions, problems and early deaths in the present life. So, such diseases etc., mainly involve present life’s bad deeds otherwise in human-life by following the Vedic path/worship etc., as quoted above, a person can destroy the said diseases, sorrows etc., and get salvation.
3. The exact reason is due to result of previous lives deeds as well as present life’s sins as also quoted above.
4. Pure mind etc., is not involved to listen the prayer by God but the true eternal method of praying God is involved. I mean to say God says in Vedas that He listens while performing hawan/Yajyen with full concentration.
5. The soul is eternal and everlasting and takes birth under command of Almighty God based on his previous lives’ good or bad deeds. So, present birth either of human beings or other living-beings is not the first birth but is itself eternal and therefore based on previous lives’ deeds i.e., present souls have already taken innumerable births previously and will ever be taking rebirth until they attain salvation in human life.
Yes, plants, trees are living souls.
6. I could not understand your sentence of “changing the present faith of life”.
Human life is attained when sins and pious deeds become equal. So, it is blessed by God after long, long time. In human life only are we entitled to destroy the previous lives’ deeds/sorrows and can attain salvation. So, we must faithfully, honestly, earnestly, pleasantly and humbly thank the God that He has blessed us with such a invaluable human life and follow His preach of Vedas faithfully to destroy the sorrows.
1. You see, a person feels it very difficult to remember formulae of Maths, Physics, Chemistry etc., and really after passing the exam, he forgets almost all those. He also forgets the instances of his childhood and young age.
Suppose, God could have given us the power of not forgetting the same, then a person could’ve become mad by remembering and repeating the past. Moreover, if a person in his present life, does not forget his past, he would be indulged in past sorrows etc., and would be an idle man due to the effect of same happenings/sorrows. You see, several such persons have committed suicide.
Being indulged in illusion and due to lack of the eternal knowledge of Vedas human do not realise purpose of human birth. Nowadays, most of the people are after the money, property, pomp and show. So, who will listen to Vedas and do worship of God to attain salvation whereas God has preached in vedas that in human life, a person should attain progress simultaneously in both paths i.e., spiritualism as well as in worldly pious matters.
My heartiest blessings to you.
Rishi: Respected Swamiji, Thanks a heaps for your blessings. The lines are extremely powerful and inspiring. Can you give me the same in Sanskrit? I was thinking to have a Sanskrit line. Pranam
Swami Ram Swarup: ‘VYAM SYAM PATYO RAYEENNAAM CHA VIDYAM’
Aneel: Why has God created so many religions? i.e. why God has sent so many priest (one preaching Christian other Isalm and other Hinduism…). I am unable to get the point. Why not one eternal religion? Please Swamiji, explain.
Swami Ram Swarup: God never creates any religion, please. God has only created human –beings –living beings. Thereafter, based on deeds, pious or sins, God has created four varnnas – classes ; Brahmin, Kshatriye, Vaishya and shudra. So, the said classes are not based on birth but on deeds, so, can be altered. The present sects have been made by us i.e., they are man-made and not God made.
God has only made one eternal Vedic religion i.e., knowledge of Vedas which is universally applicable.
I paste my article on Vedas’ philosophy.
God has made universe and blessed us human body to do pious deeds only. He has not made any heaven or hell. All have to face the result of their deeds, good or bad here only, even by taking rebirth. (Rigveda mantra 10/135/1,2)
God has not only made universe but has also given knowledge of four Vedas where answers to your and everyone’s questions have been given. There are four Vedas:
1. Rig Veda – gives knowledge of science, matter of the universe like sun, moon, air body etc., etc.
2. Yajurveda – gives knowledge of all the deeds and duties to be performed by men or women, students, leaders, king, agriculturist etc., etc., etc.
3 Samveda – gives knowledge how to worship God who gives peace and long happy life etc. In this way, details of Yoga philosophy, qualities, supreme deeds and nature of the God are also given.
4 Atharvaveda – gives details of God, medical science and details of medicine etc.
Actually in four Vedas there is unlimited knowledge. Yajurveda mantra 40/8 says that God is everywhere, is Almighty, formless, devoid of nervous system, purest, away from sins and away to face any result of any karmas (deeds), knows every soul, knows what is in everyone’s mind, no body has made God, but God creates universe, has given the eternal knowledge of four Vedas and always gives the said knowledge at the beginning of every universe to know the science and deeds to all concern. Similarly four Vedas say about God that God is an omnipresent, omniscient, formless, beyond imagination and beyond calculation. Actually God has unlimited qualities. There is only one God who creates, nurses, destroys the universe and again creates. Atharvaveda mantra 4/1/1 also says that God gives the knowledge of Vedas at the beginning of the earth to four Rishis of unsexual creation. And thereafter only public listens Vedas through Rishis Munis as yet and become learned. Rig-Veda gives knowledge of Almighty, Yajurveda gives knowledge of karmas (deeds), Samveda tells about worship-Yoga philosophy and Atharvaveda about medicines and God. Actually all Vedas commonly says about God also, so this is about Vedas in short. But the knowledge of Vedas is endless.
It is a fundamental law that knowledge is always given by somebody otherwise knowledge can’t be gained at any cost. If a new born baby is nursed well in a dense jungle and is not educated then he will not be able to gain any knowledge. So we have to think about the origin of the knowledge prevalent in the world today. In this connection all Vedas themselves say that God gives this knowledge to four Rishis. As has also been said by Rishi Patanjali in yoga shastra sutra 1/26, God is first Guru of the four Rishis. Yajurveda mantra 31/7 also refers. This is all in short about Vedas.
The Vedas are not a book, rather it is a knowledge originated in the heart of Rishis. At the time of beginning of the earth those Rishis preached Vedas by mouth and all others remembered the same by mouth at that time there was no pen, pencil, paper, etc. This process of studying Vedas by mouth remained till Mahabharata time. Muni Vyas too remembered Vedas traditionally by mouth. Then Muni Vyas first time wrote the Vedas on Bhoj patra about 5300 years ago. In 16th century when printing press came into existence then the Vedas were printed. Still Vedas are not those which have been printed but Vedas are those which are preached by mouth by an Acharya/yogi and the printed Vedas are called Sanhita.
Now if somebody worships a statue etc., i.e., its their own creation please but Vedas deny. According to Vedas the best worship of the God is Yajyen (Yajyen) for which all Vedas are self-proof. Yajurveda mantra 31/16 says that the learned persons worship God by Yajyen.
So many people have asked me that most of the scholars/preachers of different religion state that their religion incorporates all matters of the world including science. What about Vedas? I wrote so many Ved Mantras describing science matters therein. For example, Yajurvaveda Mantra 3/6 states “Ayam Gauhu Swaha Pitram Puraha Prayan Mataram Prishnihi Aakrameet Asadat”.
Meaning= This earth revolves around the Sun in the space and it also rotates on its own axis. Vedas are eternal like God because Vedas emanate from God. Now, according to Vedas, this present creation is about 1 Arab, 96 crores, 8 lakh and about 53,000 years old. So are the Vedas but as said in Rigveda Mantra 10/191/3 the present creation is same as was the previous one and this process of creation is eternal. So are the Vedas which emanate from eternal God. This all concludes that Vedas are the oldest in this creation also and no other book of science, maths or pertaining to spiritualism is written before Vedas.
Like the above example of rotation and revolution of earth, the significance of whole present science is mentioned in Vedas. We can see that whatever is happening in the universe, is all according to the Vedas. For example, occurance of six seasons, actions of Sun, moon, process of death, birth, worship, yoga philosophy, atomic energy, agriculture, animal husbandry, knowledge of politics, administration, architecture, solar energy, knowledge of home appliances like mixer, grinder, business rules, about men, women, children, marriage, Brahamcharya, education, clothes etc., etc., i.e., knowledge right from a straw to Brahma is all in Vedas. God is Almighty and has unlimited powers. So through His power He is able to originate the knowledge of Vedas in the heart of four Rishis without pencil, paper, help of mouth or any other worldly assistance.
We, i.e., the whole world depends on Almighty God but God is forever independent. That is why, He is God. We are the souls who reside in human bodies. We need assistance of senses, perceptions, mind and body to do deeds but not God.
Nowadays, so many saints are writing books. What is the background to right their books? Background is clear that they have first studied or listened the preach from their Gurus, keeping aside the matter of truth or falsehood. And after studying or listening the same, they became able to write the books. So this is also fundamental law, based on which, the ancient Rishis first listened Vedas and when they became learned then only they wrote the Vedic books like Valmikee Ramayana, six shastras, Mahabharata (Bhagwad Geeta), Upanishads, etc., etc. So, first the knowledge of Vedas is initiated in the universe and afterwards other books come into existence.
Somebody may say that human beings have knowledge by their nature to create anything like books etc., but we see that the newly born baby who is nursed in a jungle, in the absence of knowledge of a learned person, he becomes incapable to do anything. Thus, he can’t be M.A, M.Sc, doctor etc. So there are two types of the words and meanings. First, eternal which are from Almighty God and second, natural made by human beings. Eternal word meanings are always from Vedas i.e., from God. After listening/studying Vedas, human-beings become learned and then too based on their own natural knowledge, they make their own words and meanings, literature etc. But it is very much clear that in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, no one can become learned. Nowadays, also people live in dense jungle and do not lead a civilized life because they are not learned as cited above. Vedas are not sects because they emanate direct from God and God is one for all human beings. God creates sun, moon, air, water, food etc., which are meant for the best use of all human-beings for their long, happy life. So are the Vedas.
So all human beings must accept Vedas as an eternal knowledge from God, for the benefit of whole creation.
