Anchit: Pranaam Swaamiji, Aaj vishwa mein jo ho rahaa hai woh bahut hi daraavanaa hai. Mujhe toh lagataa hai ki Gitaa mein bhi jhooth hi kahaa hai.
yadaa yadaa hi dharmasya glaanirbhavati bhaarata
abhyutthanamadharmasya tadaatmaanam srijaamyaham
paritraanaaya saadhunaam vinaashaaya cha dushkritaam
dharmasansthaapanaathaaya sambhavaami yuge yuge
Agar yeh sab sach hota toh musalmaan paidaa hi nahi hotey. Bhrashtaachaar kahi nahi paayaa jaataa. Kahi koi bhi aparaadh nahi hota. Kahi kuchh galat nahi hotaa. Karmaphal ke siddhaant (jaisi karani vaisi bharani) aur prakriti ke niyam bhi sab fail ho rahe hai. Yeh ho kyaa rahaa hai? Kyaa iss samasyaa kaa koi samaadhaan bhi hai yaa yeh mahaapralay par hi samaapta hogaa?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessing to you. Aaj jo bhi kuchh vishwa mein ho rahaa hai, weh hamare khud ke karmon ka phal hee hai. Ismein Ishwar ka koi role nahin hai. Jaise Rigveda mantra 10/135/1,2 aur Yajurveda mantra 7/48 mein kaha, usey hum theek se samjhein. In mantron mein kaha ki Insaan achhey ya burey karma karne ke liye azad hai lekin karmon ka achha ya bura phal bhagwan deita hai. Isliye, dukh ho ya sukh, weh Ishwar dwara diya hamare karmon ka phal hai. Isee Vedic philosophy se yeh sansaar anaadi kaal se chal rahaa hai aur hamesha chalta raha hai, ye system eternal aur everlasting hai. Isliye na bhagwan nein pehle avtar liya na ab leiga kyunki Ishwar nein hamein toh kewal karmon ka phal deina hota hai. Geeta ke in shlokon ka kuch aur hee vedic arth hain. Isliye main advise karoonga ki aap Ishwar kripa se mere dwara likhee Bhagwad Geeta Part I, II, III worth Rs. 400, Rs. 400/-, Rs. 250/-, excluding postal charges, padein. The book can be sent to you on receipt of your postal address. Han! kuchh karma kriyamann hotey hain is vishya mein mera article neeche pasted hai.
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 considered 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 simultaneously 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.
REMOVING BINDINGS OF KARMA (KARMA BANDHAN)
Pain or suffering of karmas is unlimited since the load of sanchit karmas is uncountable. But all karmas (deeds- good or bad) can be burnt in the present life by doing real worship of God. It may take next birth also according to the amount of time and dedication with which an aspirant pursues his worship.
So the real remedy is to follow the eternal path of four Vedas. One should listen Vedas from an experienced Acharya who knows Vedas as well as Ashtang Yoga philosophy, which also exists in Vedas. Regular guidance of learned Acharya is needed by the aspirant.
Who says that God is sitting idle? Otherwise, who else is controlling the universe? Who is giving justice to human-beings in this divine court of law? How the wind is blowing, earth is moving, sun is revolving, sun and moon are bringing about the production of crops, who is controlling birth and death, who is laughing with in the blooming flowers? Who awakes us in the morning and under whose power do we retire to our beds to sleep and under whose supervision our digestive system works? Who has created the whole universe and matters etc.
We are taking rest but God never does so. He is our commander and He showers mercy on us by donating the whole world to us along with knowledge of four Vedas to make us learned but most of the people get indulged only in materialistic articles of the world and forget Almighty God and hence the sorrows, problems, tensions, diseases etc., devolve over them.
As regards war, hatred, terrorism, etc. it is man-made problem created because of lack of knowledge of Vedas. Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clearly states that human beings are free to do good or bad deeds but result is awarded by God accordingly in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively.

Surendra: What is the medicines for gas & high BP?
Swami Ram Swarup: In this connection, you are advised to please contact any experienced doctor. In addition, daily practice of some Yogasan and Prannayam will be beneficial for you.
Basant: Namaste adarniya swami ji, yog darshan is against vedas because 1. as per Yajurveda 40.6 and 40.7 one should view the entire living world as equivalent to himself but yog darshan kahta hai ki hame ANATMA ME AATM BUDDHI nahi karna chahiye. is prakar yog darshan ved virodhi hua. kyunki ham sabko apne atma ke sadrish arthat aatm buddhi karenge. pl clarify which philosophy should be followed?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. It is a blunder mistake and misunderstanding for those who insult our shastras to say that any shastras (out of six shastras) like Yog Shastra is against vedas. I would advise you to read comments by Vyasmuniji on Yog Shastra or comments given by me with the grace of God, on Yog Shastra then the misunderstanding will be removed forever.
However, I would advise you that knowledge is attained when is given by someone. In the beginning of earth, all non-sexual human beings are ignorant, then, Almighty God originates Vedas’ knowledge in the heart of four Rishis. So, base of knowledge uptil now, is our Vedas. I mean to say, all Rishis first studied Vedas’ traditionally and then became learned of Vedas. Thereafter, based on Vedas’ knowledge, they wrote shastras, Upnishads etc. So, how any shastra can be against Vedas. Actually, problem is this that such persons tell only those misleading views which they’ve heard but without studying Vedas whereas shastras have been written based on Vedas. So, how those persons etc., who do not study Vedas but give comment on shastras are telling truth? In this connection, I paste my article below:-
REVERT BACK TO VEDAS
It is the essence of Vedic spiritualism that whenever an aspirant enters into it then learned acharya preaches him that Vedas are the divine voice of God, which by the power of God, are originated in the heart of four Rishis, at the beginning of each creation. Learneds who indulge in deep study of Vedas know that Vedas are alive knowledge which emanate directly from God and hence they have not been written by anyone on the earth, in the shape of a book. Since, the said knowledge is applicable to all humans right from the beginning of earth hence Vedas are not sects.
Infact, Kapil Muni, after traditionally studying Vedas and realising the truth after hard practice of Ashtang Yog, also states the said truth in his Sankhya shastra sutra 5/51 that Vedas are alive knowledge hence ved mantras wield the power and self-capability to make such faithful aspirants, who are involved in deep and sincere study of Vedas, to understand the meaning and idea of ved mantras. This is the reason that Kapil Muni states that Vedas are self-proof to justify the truth. To elaborate, knowledge given in ved mantra or any fact stated through ved mantras does not require to be validated/authenticated by other shastras or any other book [but like our Rishi-Munis, Rajrishis
and their public used to study Vedas traditionally with faith and sincere efforts, process being the Vedic order of Almighty God, for all human-beings, the said practice is not in vogue at present
times].God knows when inhabitants of India would be able to adopt the said moral duties, entrusted by God, of studying and following the Vedas, which destroys all the effects of sorrows and makes our future bright with long life and also spreads international brotherhood along with other unlimited benefits.
Secondly, universe has been created about one Arab, ninety six crore, eight lakhs, fifty three thousand and one hundred and thirteen years ago.
So, logically, Vedas have also been created at this time-period. Rishi-Munis acquired Vedas’ knowledge by listening to Vedas traditionally from acharya and did agnihotra/yajyen, name jaap of God and Ashtang yog practice as preached in Vedas. In turn, they realised God and got the knowledge by doing pious deeds while leading the family life, making their future happy and bright, according to Vedas. Then they further educated people about the same because it has been
the benevolent nature of every learned person, who gains Vedic knowledge and experiences, divine pleasure, to share it with others. About five-six thousand years ago, Rishis wrote six shastras,
upnishads, Mahabharat (including Bhagwad Geeta) and Valmiki Ramayan much before all these books, based on the knowledge of Vedas. All these great writers – the Rishis, have eulogised Vedas in their literary works and based on their experience have admitted that Vedas are the divine voice of God.
That is why, Kapil Muni in his Sankhya shastra sutra 1/66 and Patanjali Rishi in his Yog shastra sutra 1/7 have shared their experience to educate us that the preach of any Rishi (Mantradrishta
Rishi) is also considered as a proof to reach at truth. And also the holy books written by the Rishis based on Vedic culture are also considered as proof called ‘Partah Pramann’, Vedas being Swatah
Pramann. Is it not our bad luck that the said secrets of Vedas are now mostly unknown to people and at this juncture, so called preach of any modern saint (sant who is against the Vedas) which does not tally with Vedic culture and which is definitely considered by learned of Vedas as totally false/unauthentic, is being accepted happily by the innocent public? If we consider impartially then we would find that the said matter is definitely harmful to the society, being against the Vedas because it does not come within the parameter of Vedic authenticity. Now, question is that who will bell the cat?
Duly indulged in illusion and mostly intention being after the materialistic articles etc., hardly anybody spares the time to study the literary works of Rishis like Upnishads, Shastras, Nighantu,
Ashtadhyayee, Shatpath Brahmin Granth and above quoted holy books which contain abundant proofs of ved mantras. Hence, when one will fail to study these great literary works of Rishis, under the guidance of learned acharya of Vedas. Then naturally anyone will cast doubt over the Vedas which implies non-awareness of Vedic knowledge. Nowadays, people study the so-called spiritual books written by ordinary people but not those written by Rishis. It shall not out of place to mention here that Atharvaveda mantra 7/105/1 preaches us to study Vedas or to study the spiritual books written by Rishi-Munis. The mantra strongly stresses not to study such books which are written by ordinary people. This secret has been made unknown to the public by several saints, that Vedas, Yajyen and yogabhyas are difficult and need not to be studied/performed. People do not know that God states to study Vedas and perform daily agnihotra/Yajyen, name jaap of God and practice of Ashtang yog under the expert guidance of learned acharya.
Due to ignorance of the same, people are not able to understand that they are doing sins by not obeying the God’s order of studying Vedas and doing yajyen etc. On the other hand, they are accepting the juicy lecture of saints, who are against the Vedas and who are mostly professional. Moreover, all the present sects along with their pious books have emerged about two thousand to two thousand and five hundred years ago. As compared to this, Vedas have been on this earth since
One Arab, ninety six crore, eight lakhs, fifty three thousand and one hundred and thirteen years ago. As mentioned above, Vedas are not a book. That is why, it has become difficult to repose faith in Vedas, in the absence of deep study under guidance of learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yog.
Yet, it is a well-known fact spread by the tapasvis, Rishis-Munis by their preach and above quoted spiritual books that Vedas are eternal and immortal knowledge which emanate directly from God. This fact is even supported by renowned scientists like Maxmuller and many others who believe in authenticity of Vedas. It is further a well-known fact that Vedas have been preserved in world libraries with respect and honour, accepting Vedas as first and the most ancient literature. I mean to say that Vedas are the first knowledge which came on the earth. It was spread orally through the tradition of acharya and disciple, right from the beginning of the earth, as mentioned above.
So, Vedas were remembered by heart by everyone. About five thousand three hundred years ago, for the first time, Vyas Muniji, who himself remembered the Vedas by heart traditionally, wrote them on Bhojpatra for the benefit of mankind. He completed the said pious task on the day of poornnima, about five thousand three hundred years ago. Since, then the poornnima has been named and remembered as Vyas Poornnima. Further, when printing press came into existence in sixteenth century, the Vedas written on Bhoj patra by Vyas Muniji were printed in the form of book which is called “Samhita” and not ved. Samhita means collection of ved mantras which has been printed. Half of the intellectuals of the world believe Vedas to be the divine voice of God and yet half of the intellectuals believe that Vedas have been written by some great scientist who has no parallel to himself in the entire world. But learned of Vedas know that God is the scientist of all scientists and no one is born even equivalent to such God nor shall be born in future. Then what to talk about being above the God. It is also pertinent to mention here that eighteen chapters of Bheeshma parv of Mahabharat have been secluded, named and printed as Bhagwad Geeta. Infact, Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj has praised and eulogised Vedas in Bhagwad Geeta. The above stated facts are known only to learned of Vedas. The saints who are ignorant of the knowledge of Vedas are naturally ignorant of the Vedas’ knowledge contained in Bhagwad Geeta and are therefore compelled not to explain the shloka of Bhagwad Geeta, briefly and truly wherein the reference and truth of Ved mantras exists. Why? Because they have not studied Vedas.
However, most of the present literary works and most of the saints are reiterating the fact that Vedas are divine voice of God. In this connection, Almighty, omnipresent, formless God has already stated in Atharvaveda mantra 12/5/40 that those who do not study Vedas but take a piecemeal (portion) of Ved mantras, only which suits them, by means of studying other books etc., or listening from anywhere else [not based on traditional study of Vedas] will be punished by me (God). Isn’t it surprising that yet no one is taking the initiative to study Vedas. On the contrary, those deeds which are against the Vedas and promote blind faith are being done on large scale. To experience the truth, we will have to revert back to Vedas.
Idea of Yajurveda mantra 40/6 is learned who see all alive and non-alive matters i.e., souls and non-alive creation within God after studying Vedas and hard practice of Ashtang Yog and who also see the Formless God within all non-alive matters of world, made of Prakriti, then the learned never indulge in misunderstanding.
Here, the most important word in this mantra is “ Anupashyati” Anu means after studying Vedas, following its preach and hard practice of Ashtang yoga i.e., learned see/experience the above quoted matters after studying Vedas traditionally following its preach in life and doing hard practice of Ashtang Yog. Thus, they attain Dharammegh Samadhi as per Yog Shastra Sutra 4/29, 30, 31 and hence realise God.
So, now it is sad that deep meaning of Anu (afterword) is not being understood due to lack of vedas’ knowledge and hard practice of Ashtang yog. Yajurveda mantra 40/7 also tells the same idea as is mentioned in mantra 6. Mantra 7 states that such Rishi-yogi treat the others living beings equal to themselves i.e., the yogi wants his welfare similarly, he will think about other’s welfare.
Jo Yog Shastra mein aisa likha kaha kehte hain ki-
“ANATMA ME AATM BUDDHI nahi karein”
Unse Yog shastra ke weh sutra poochhne chahiye jismein aisa likha haii. Kyunki Yog shastra ved ke khilaf keh hee nahin sakta. Mushkil yeh hai ki zyadatar log, jaisa upar kaha, vedadhyayan aur yogabhyaas aadi nahin karte, weh kewal pada likha ratta gyan kehte hain jo haani karak hai.waise yeh hamara shareer anatma hee hai arthat chetan nahin hai, jad hai aur is anatma arthat jad shareer mein hee hum chetan jeevatma rehte hain aur is shareer mein rehne wali chetan jeevatma mein hee Chetan Parmatma niwas karta hai. Isliye, yeh kehna anatma mein atma buddhi nahin karnee chahiye, yeh ved shastra se miltee jultee baat nahin hai.
