T: How to improve my studies (B.Com.) and business?
Swami Ramswarup: I am O.K, please and wish you a long, happy life. It is good that you are doing B.Com (Prog.) and doing business as well. Hard-working, honesty always pays award. So, try to spread your business at your level best by making contacts and establishing ,market. Please, do not lose confidence, your hard-working will never go in vain. One thing is clear in Vedas that money is either earned based on the previous lives’ pious deeds or hard-working in present life along with daily worship of God. So, I would also advise you to do the following needful tasks.

Shubh Karma

Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.

One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.

Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.

After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.

GAYATRI MANTRA

Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.

After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.

The Gayatri mantra is as follows —

OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA

DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT

Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.

Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar, Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigveda mantra 1/164/46 says God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained.

VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus Viraat is the name of God. Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti. Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form. Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.

AGNI = From dhatu, “ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., Omniscient. That is, knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.

VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is He in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.

HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.

VAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vayu word is made. Its meaning is He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name of God is Vayu.

TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made meaning He who is self made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken, unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun, moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.

ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.

ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name is Aditya.

PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.

BHUHU = “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe, is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.

BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow, and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the name of God is Bhuvaha.

SWAHA = i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.

SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.

DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.

VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme and acceptable for worship.

BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable English word of Sanskrit word, “SHUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)

TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.

DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because

YAHA = the God

NAHA = our,

DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)

PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)

MEANING
“We meditate the God who is the base of lives’ of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration”.

Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things —-
Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.

Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.

Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.

How to do havan

Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.

Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.

Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.

Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand’s finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajyen. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times

STUDENT LOSING CONCENTRATION

Concentration is not made on mind, but mind has to be concentrated on particular point or subject etc. It requires practice of Yam, Niyam, Asan, Pranayaam, Pratyahar, Dharnna and Dhyan then one attains Samadhi. In this path, guidance of a spiritual master who knows Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy is needed. Holy name jaap of God helps a lot. I have written a book on Yoga which can be sent on receipt of your postal address. However, personal guidance as stated is essential. It is a moral duty of a student to concentrate on hard study and to look after his health. Avoid bad society always concentrate on your Brahamcharya. Awake early in the morning and after bath-brush etc., do holy name jaap of God at least for fifteen minutes. Go for morning walk and light exercises daily. Take plenty of water i.e., 15-20 glass in a day. Always respect your parents, elders and teachers. Must be soft spoken, Avoid TV to see bad scenes, films etc. This all will help you to concentrate in you study. Whatever, you study and learn, try to write on rough book a lot without seeing books etc. Please refer to the book- “Brahamcharya-Dukh Nivarak Divya Mani”.

V: Parnam Maharaj: maharaj apka beta bahut pareshan hai, apni sharan main bolalo mere gurupitama.
Swami Ramswarup: V betey My blessings to you. Aap chinta no karo, tension jaldi hi nikal jayegi aur tum to hameshha meri sharan mein ho phir kyon ghabrate ho. Manushyon ko janwaron se bhi zyada adhik dheeraj rakhna chahiye.

S: Someone cheated us. Our actions were completely legal. What should we do?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you all, my daughter. As I told you, it is a tedious matter and I think nothing can be done at this juncture. If there is scope to register the FIR then only they can be arrested and amount can be taken back.
Dear daughter, yes your action is legal as well and you can lodge legal proceedings against them. Now, you will have to produce the proof of giving the money to the culprits. Please, peacefully try to collect the proof etc., and try to initiate legal action against them. My blessings are with you.

G: I am facing lot of problem. I am getting lots of marriage alliance, but nothing is working out as nothing is getting finalized. Can you please check my horoscope and provide me you kind advice and tell me when will I get married? i really need your help. Thank You!
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you . Kaal Sarp Yog & other such defects in astrology

Vedas are eternal and knowledge direct from God wherein such horoscope, kaal sarp yog etc., are not mentioned, please. So you need not to worry. Please try to do havan daily even from gayatri mantra, which is a great worship of God and will give you benefit. The meaning of kaal is also time. So death comes according to time for which the God has given life to us. This is all based on our previous lives’ pious deeds and sins. So there is no effect of kaal sarp yog etc., in the life, but effect of deeds (karmas) only. So, one must do always pious deeds to be happy. Present pious deeds can burn our previous deeds also.

The darkness of night gets obliterated only when the sun rises. Similarly, illusion is wiped away by gaining the knowledge of Vedas because in Rigveda, it is said that knowledge of Vedas is like a sunlight which kills the illusion. Knowledge of Vedas emanates direct from God. So the knowledge of Vedas is immortal, eternal like God and takes care of the aspirants just like God. This fact is mostly not known by the public due to lack of listening of Vedas from learned Acharya of Vedas. Hence, the preach delivered by most of the present saints does not tally with the knowledge of Vedas. Therefore, self-made worship and illusion has spread everywhere.

Vedas contain the knowledge of all the matters of the universe right from straw to Brahma (God). The matters mentioned in the Vedas or the truth mentioned in the Vedas is always authentic. Therefore nowadays as well as in the ancient times, the self-made path or the views against the Vedas spread by any king or any person like Ravann, Kansa, Duryodhan, Hirannyakashyap, Shroopnakha etc., has led to origination of militancy, injustice, dictatorship and great damage to the public. Because their self made views were/are totally against the Vedas. Similarly, the mangalik or mangal dosh matter has not been mentioned in Vedas. So, one should never be afraid of the same being unauthentic. So, you may go ahead, neglecting mangal dosh issue. To know the truth regarding any matter, our ancient Rishis have advised to tally the matter with Vedas. Since, in Vedas there is no mention of word manglik so you need not to worry. The people who are not manglik are also suffering from the problems suffered by normal married people. Shri Ram married Sita after breaking the bow. And nobody saw Shri Ram’s teva to tally it with that of Sita. In Mahabharat Yudhishthir married Draupadi by piercing arrow in the eye of a fish (the eye was pierced by Arjun the younger brother of Yudhishthir) and there was no matching of teva or determination of mangalik status etc. Savitri married Satyavan at her own wish without any teva matching etc. Pandu married Kunti and Madri without teva matching or determining manglik dosh.

S: Pranam sawami ji..actually hamari family ne ab un logo ko mana kar diya hai..or wo log bhi khush hi hain shayad..agar khush na hote to kam se kam 1 baar to baat karte hi.ye sunkar.par unlogon ne aisa kuch bhi nai kiya sawami ji..koi baat nahi sawami ji shayad issi me sab logon ki bhalayee thi..jo bhi hua acchha hi hua..or jo bhi hoga acchha hi hoga hai na sawami ji geeta saar to yahi bolta hai waise aapke sujhav par amal karte hue gaytri mantara ka jap jrur krungi. dhanyawaad.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you , my daughter. Yes, my daughter, issee main hi sabki bhalai hai. Aapko mera baar-baar ashirwad. Dono samay Gayatri mantra ka jaap shuru kar dein aur ho sakey to Gayatri mantra se aahuti bhi dal dein. Ishwar bhala hi kareiga.

M: Can you explain my future please?
Swami Ramswarup: No doubt, that Amavasya is a pious day as stated in Atharvaveda mantra 7/79/1, 2, 3. on this day especially, the aspirants assemble before the learned acharya and perform holy Yajyen with Ved mantras and get pious blessings of Almighty God and Guru Maharaj.
Future is based on pious deeds, hard working towards a right path and God helps those who help themselves.

It depends on your hard working and pious deeds. One should worship God daily to get His blessings in every matter. Good job, education, richness, happiness etc., is the result of previous life’s pious deeds and present life’s hard working, dedication, devotion, hardworking, honesty etc. And in this life one should always also do real worship of God to finish the obstacles if any which may be due to previous life’s bad deeds. So worship is always required along with hard working, devotion, dedication towards right path to get progress in the life.
