Sanjay Bharti: Sri Krishn ki mirtu kaise ho gayi?
Swami Ram Swarup: Sri Krishna Maharaj went to a jungle and lied down under a tree. When he at his own wish tried to leave the body, immediately a poisonous arrow struck his toe. The hunter went near Sri Krishna Maharaj and told him that he had erroneously hit Sri Krishna Maharaj with the arrow, for which he apologized to Sri Krishna Maharaj. Sri Krishna Maharaj in turn told the hunter that he himself wanted to leave the body and then he left the body accordingly.
Aneel Kumar: Swami Ji, I have some confusions about AHIMSA. Does it mean non-voilance? How it is kept? If a scorpion is about to sting a person who keeps Ahimsa, what should he do? Should he kill the scorpion to protect himself or let the scorpion sting him to keep Ahimsa? Please explain.
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, the meaning of Ahinsa is non-violence but in the case of kings, police, administrators and warriors who save the country from enemies and national miscreants etc., the concept of non-violence does not apply to them. The judges when give justice, they are also empowered to give severe punishment to the defaulters based on their crime.
In the case of self-defence also it does not apply. But law and order must not be violated.
As regards, snakes, scorpions, flies, mosquitoes i.e., poisonous living beings or carnivores who cause harm to the valuable life of human-beings, Yajurveda mantra 1/7 states that if such harmful living beings come in your premises or attack anywhere, then they should be killed immediately because the life of human beings is more valuable.
Rajan Bhargava: Which havan do Raja Dashrath (father of Ram) to get son?
Swami Ram Swarup: Raja Dashrath arranged to perform Putreshti Yajyen i.e., Garbhadhaan Sanskar under the supervision of Rishi Shringi. It is our bad luck that in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, we do not know the importance of performing holy Yajyen by ved mantras and hence pious sanskar cannot be given to our generation. As a result, our generation is devoid of sanskars.
