Edward: Pranam Swamiji, Rig Veda 06/09/04 states that God and soul reside within the human body, if God reside in all human body can you please prove that God is one since he is in all individual body.
And my second question is vanar in Sanskrit is monkey, also vanar is a name of Hanumanji’s tribe in south India and it is also said that he was a great brahamchari, why Hanuman is having a monkey tail.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. 1.) We must remember that in the previous yugas, several Rishi-Munis attained Samadhi and used to realise God at a time. If God had not resided within human-body then how God could simultaneously manifests within hearts of number of Rishi-Munis at one time. You see, fire is omnipresent and resides in every matter similarly God is omnipresent.
2.) Hanumanji was a Yogi. He was a man and not monkey. Hanumanji has been declared as monkey by some people at their own accord. When Sri Ram and Laxmanji were wandering in jungle in search of Sita Mata and suddenly they mat Hanumanji. After discussing for some time, Sri Ram told his brother Laxman that Hanumanji is learned of four Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. You see, monkey does not study vedas but a man or woman does so.
Suvratadev: I want to meet you and take blessings. I am Saam Vedi and sing Saam Gaan as well as Raag Sangeet in the ancient Dhrupad tradition. I want to contribute to your ashram by my capacity to teach sangeet and Saam Gaan. Will you please guide? Also, I am slowly trying to get ready to leave my body as and when Ishvar has planned it, but my preparation is to ensure that my atma does not suffer any pangs of separation from the world. I need your guidance.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to you, my son. You are always welcome here but nobody is available to learn sangeet etc. here, daily Yajyen is performed and vedas are preached only.

Anonymous: What is the meaning of yajurved charter number 32and verse no 3?
Swami Ram Swarup: He Who is the greatest, worshippable and is most glorious, He is called God and if an aspirant follows His (God’s) orders/preach mentioned in vedas, it cannot be measured and therefore He is Formless. His idol does not exist. So, we should worship God Who is Formless, does not take birth and is always away from death. He is Almighty.
