AC: Namaste Swamiji. I am very thankful to you for giving me valuable suggestion. I need your ASHIRWAD everytime. Swamiji, can I mail you anytime whenever required?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste, my daughter. You are always welcome, please. My blessings are with you my daughter and you may send E-Mail anytime you require.
Usha: Namaste Swami Ji, Thank you for your response. I already have several Vedic Yagna books but am a bit confused about the sequence of the procedure. Some book says that Rigvarnam and aachman should be formed after Eeshwar stuti, Swasti Vachan and Shanti Prakaran while some say that they should be at the beginning. Please clarify which is the correct one. Thank You.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste, my daughter. You are welcome please. The correct sequence is as stated first by you. However, I would again advise you to read my book named “Yajyen karma- Sarvashreshth Ishwar Pooja” the book will sure give you additional knowledge. If you desire, the book will be presented to you free of cost. My blessings to you.
Anil B: Swami ji namaste, can you help me in getting to know our own Vedas book’s in Hindi? I have a great interest in it to learn and try to follow it.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste ji. I appreciate your views to study Vedic books. As you know, Vedas’ knowledge emanates direct from God in the beginning of each creation wherein God has given three educations-
There are three educations/preach about
(i) knowledge – science etc(Gyan) in Rigveda, At the time of every creation, knowledge of four Vedas emanates direct from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis in non-sexual creation. In the said process, first of all, the knowledge of Rigveda advents and originates in the heart of Rishi Agni. In this veda though the description of every worldly matter right from straw to God has been mentioned but it speaks especially about matters concerning science of the world. God has described qualities/nature of all materialistic articles of the universe. Therefore, the entire mankind must get the benefit of eternal knowledge of Vedas by knowing about right from straw to Brahma i.e., God. The meaning of “Ric” is that wherein the qualities and nature of all matters have been described and the meaning of Veda is knowledge i.e., true knowledge. These words are used in making the pious word “Rigveda”.
(ii) In Yajurveda, the form of true, pious deeds have been preached . So, in the absence of listening of Yajurveda, we can’t know about real moral duties of students, married persons, vanprasthis and sanyasis. Even the moral and social obligations of King, parents, children etc., can’t be known.
(iii) In Samveda there is preach about eternal true worship of God like yajyen, name jaap, practice of ashtang yoga by following which an aspirant realises God/attains salvation.
(iv) Atharvaveda authenticates the above three vedas’ preach. It also contains comprehensive knowledge of medical science.
So, Almighty God who is formless, creates, nurses, destroys and again creates universe. This process is eternal and everlasting. So, at the time of beginning of each non-sexual creation, the knowledge of above four Vedas emanates direct from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis. The knowledge is given by the God to the human-beings for their welfare/benefit because until the knowledge is given by somebody, no one can attain the knowledge. In the beginning of the creation, no preacher, guru, acharya, teacher is present there to teach. So, God gives the knowledge.
So, before entering into the knowledge of Vedas, I would advise you first to read the following Vedic books-(in Hindi)
S. No. NAMES OF BOOK COST TOTAL PAGES
(1) VEDIC PRAVACHAN SANGRAH 51.00 119
(2) VEDIC PRAVACHAN SANGRAH PT II 100.00 124
(3) YAJ KARAM SARVSHRESHTH ISHWAR POOJA 65.00 132
(4) BRAHAMCHARYA DUKH NIVARAK DIVYA MANNI 100.00 173
After studying the books, you may send E-Mail to get further Vedic knowledge.
Deepak: Swamiji charan sparsh should one person donate blood regularly?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son.In this connection, you are advised to seek medical opinion.
TNK: Three kinds of donors according to ChooDamani NiGhantu
Swami Ram Swarup: Donation should be given to the needy, at right places and to Rishi-munis. Nighantu is a separate book from choodamani book. Please, clarify your question again.
Himashu: This is in continuation with my previous question. I sit straight on Asana (simple sitting posture of both legs folded and keeping my whole body straight).First of all I do pranayam for sometime then i do meditate. I started just 3 weeks back and I am seeing some changes on me (like not to criticize anyone and talk limited). First few minutes I recite mantras by mouth and suddenly I stop and recite mantras internally and concentrate on my breath. Some people told me do not concentrate on mind while meditating concentrate on heart. I do not know where i am concentrating. I can concentrate for half an hour maximum. Please suggest. Also I need to work in shifts so I am managing time whenever it permits. Thanks for all this knowledge of Vedas. As soon as I get both the books I start reading them.
Swami Ram Swarup: As regards concentration, it is done mainly on any part of body amongst three- i.e., between two eyebrows which is called agyachakra with closed eyes; Nasagre (tip of nose with half closed eyes) i.e., with half closed eyes the devotee should continuously see the tip of his nose and third is heart.
My advise is that agyachakra is the best place to concentrate. It has been also told by Sri Krishna Maharaj in his Geeta Shloka 8/10 .But anybody can concentrate on any one part of body. But Vedas as well as Yog shastra Sutra 3/1 state not to concentrate out of body. You are welcome, please.
My blessings to you.
Ashwini: Respected sir first of all I want to say charan sparsh to you now. In Shrimad Bhagvatgita chapter ten lord Krishna tells Arjun that he lies in”peepal, cow, sarpraj basuki, etc.. “but please justify the statement that “Arjun:.chal karne walon mein main jua (gamble) hun”.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.You see, Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj first studied Vedas with Sudama in the ashram of Rishi Sandeepan. He did hard practice of Ashtang Yoga Philosophy mentioned in Vedas. Then he got the supreme title of Yogeshwar in the world. Secondly, the contemporaries of Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj named adorable Vyas muniji wrote Mahabharat epic and Bhagwad Geeta is an extract of eighteen chapters of Bheeshma Parv of Mahabharat epic. So, Bhagwad Geeta is not a separate holy granth being extract of Mahabharat, it is written by Vyas muniji, who was also a philosopher of Vedas and Ashtang Yoga Philosophy. Now, we should think deeply that how a person who is not aware of eternal knowledge of Vedas, which emanate direct from God can comment on shloka of Geeta. Whereas, Geeta’s Shloka have been written by the learned of Vedas, Vyas muniji and orated by Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj who was also a philosopher of Vedas. I mean to say that in entire Geeta, Sri Krishna Maharaj has not stated himself as God. So, how can he state that he is in Peepal, cow, etc. Vedas tell that Almighty God Who is Formless, Omniscient, Creates, Nurses and Destroys the universe is only Omnipresent and none else. Rigveda Mantra 6/50/14 states “Ajah Ek Paat” i.e., He is away from birth and death and is ever unchangeable. So, He was, is and shall always remain Formless and away from death and birth.
I’ve written detailed comments on each shlokas of Bhagwad Geeta which clarifies the underlying idea and meaning of each shloka. The books named Bhagwad Geeta- Ek Vedic Rahasya Part I and II(in Hindi) is worth Rs .400/- each excluding postal charges.
These books are completely based on the knowledge of Vedas. I’ve also explained about the chal and gambling etc., in detail, in shlokas. So, please study my book which can be sent from here, on receipt of your postal address, if you so desire. Otherwise, I’ll explain the same on receipt of your E-mail.
