Vishal: Namaste Guruji, I forget to ask in my previous question that for doing Havan Ghee is required. I live in Delhi And we use Ghee of Market. You know this Ghee is not as pure as Cow milk Ghee found in villages. So, can I use the ghee as available in market. I am bit confused. Because whatever found in City is less pure than villages commodities. Please guide me.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, no doubt, that the pure ghee is hardly available in the market. But, if animal fat or other non-vegetarian material is not mixed in the ghee then it can be used. Otherwise any pure oil can also be used.
Sourabh: charon me aadar aur prem bhaav bhara pranaam swikaar karein Gurujee. Eeshwar paida nahi hue na mrityu ko prapt ho sakte hain. Har cheez kabhi na kabhi aati hai… Jaise yug aata hai. Nayee shrishti aati hai. Vaise hi eeshwar bhi kabhi na kabhi aaye honge.? Pehli bar shrishti bhi rachi gayi hogi? Kripya apne vichar prakat karein. Dhanyawaad. Charan sparash
Swami Ram Swarup: Mera aapko ashirwad. Ishwar kabhi na kabhi nahin aaye or na hee pehli baar kabhi srishti rachee gayee hai. Ishwar to anadi, anant aur kabhi na nasht hone wali shakti hai jiske anant samarthya aur anant gunn hai. Isliye Yog shastra sutra 1/24 mein kaha ki Ishwar na karma bhogne wala hai aur na kabhi mrityu ko prapt hota hai. Agar kabhi na kabhi Ishwar aaye hoge tub to kabhi na kabhi Ishwar mrityu ko bhi prapt ho jayega parantu Ishwar ko anadi, anant kehte hai, anadi ka arth hai kabhi na janam leiney wala aur kabhi na mrityu ko prapt hone wala. Issee prakar sansar prakriti se banta hai aur prakriti bhi Ishwar ki tarah anadi aur kabhi na nasht hone wali hai. Prakriti se sansar banta hai aur ek samay sansar nasht ho jaata hai. Nasht kyun hota hai, Kyunki banta hai. Parantu Ishwar aur prakriti kabhi nahin banti isliye kabhi nasht nahin hote.
Salim: Namaste Swamiji, I have heard many times that giving of Tithe (105 of ones income) is mentioned in Vedas. However I have not been able to find a claer reference to it. I was wondering if you can help? My reason for asking is that I am doing a comparative study of giving in various religions.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Walekum-salam, my brother. I am glad to know that you are doing comparative study of various religions. Vedas tell about doing hard work to earn the money, to donate some portion of it to the real needy persons. Vedas also tell about math’s, trigonometry, algebra, about buying and selling i.e., doing business but I have not read about Tithe (105 of one’s income). I request you to quote the meaning of Tithe to which language does it relate.
Naveen: I wanted to become yogi .. how can i find guru in himalaya .. how to do dyanna ..pls tell me guruji paranaam guruji
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. one has to do hard struggle himself to seek a learned Vedic Yogi. As regards dhyan, it is the seventh stage of ashtang Yoga mentioned in Vedas. Before dhyan, Yam, Niyam, asan, Prannayam, Pratyahar and dharnna are required to be learnt and practised sincerely under the guidance of above quoted Yogi. I would first advise you to read my book- Patanjali Yog Darshan- I and II in which Ashtang Yoga is mentioned in detail. The books are in Hindi worth Rs. 131/- and 300/-, if you desire. After studying Yog shastra, you should seek learned guru yourself by following his advice then by practising ashtang yoga, anyone can become a Yogi.
