Chiransh: Swami ji. A Muslim frd of mine had asked me a ques. which I am copying and pasting it here. Please send me its reply as soon as possible.
मै जब छोटी सी थी तब मैंने मुर्ख ब्रह्मिनो के कॉमिक्स बुक से एक हनुमान की कहानी सुनी थी !उस कहानी में ये बताया गया था की छोटा हनुमान तपते हुए सूरज के गोले को हाथ में लेकर खेल रहा था ,फिर जब मुर्ख ब्रह्मिनो के हनुमान का खेलते खेलते दिल भर गया तो वो उस सूरज को फल समझ कर खा जाता है !
तब मुझको साइंस के बारे में ज्ञान नहीं था , अब मै उस कहानी के बारे में सोचती हु तो ब्रह्मिनो के मुर्खता और हनुमान जी पर बहूत ही हंसी आती है ! पता नहीं क्यों आज के इस वैज्ञानिक युग में भी अब तक इन ब्रह्मिनो के मुर्खता भरे कहानियो पर करोड़ो लोग आँख बंद करके विश्वास कर लेते! ये अन्धविसवासी लोग ये भी नहीं सोचते के वो लोग जिन को भगवान समझ कर पूजा करते है वो असल में भगवान है ही नहीं, अगर ऐसे लोगो में अभी भी थोडा सा भी बुद्धि है तो एक बार ज़रूर खुले मस्तिस्क से इस बात पर विचार जरुर करे ! क्या आप लोगो को अभी तक ये नहीं समझ नहीं आया के ये ब्राह्मण लोग धर्म को धंधा बनाकर सदियों से हमलोगों को मुर्ख बना रहे है और अपनी तिजोरी भर रहे है?
खैर, आज के इस वैज्ञानिक युग में आजतक अमेरिका भी सूरज के आस पास तक नहीं जा सका लेकिन इस भारत भूमि का दुर्भग्य ही कहा जा सकता है के ऐसे ब्राह्मण इस भारतवर्ष में जनम लेकर करोड़ो भारतीयों को मुर्ख और अन्धविसवासी बनाया और हनुमान के मुह से सूरज तक को खिला दिया!
आज इस बात पर विचार जरुर करना के आप अपने बच्चो को वैज्ञानिक सिक्षा देना चाहते है या इन मुर्ख ब्रह्मिनो के लिखे हुए कहानियो को सुनाकर उनको भी अंधविश्वास और मुर्खता के खाई में धकेलना चाहते है !
अब ज़रा आप ही सोचे ऐसी कहानियो को हम विदेशो में जाकर किसी को सुनायेंगे तो वो लोग हमपर कितना हँसेंगे??
Swami Ram Swarup: Agar koi suraj aur chand par daag lagaye to ussey suraj chand ko koi pharak nahin padega. Veer Hanumanji ek yoddha, charon vedon ke gyata , Yogi mahaan purush thei. Is baat ko Valmiki Ramayan mein Sri Ramji nein khud Laxman bhai ko kaha hai. Han! Yeh Ved aur satya ke virudh baat hai ki koi suraj aur chand ko apne munh (mouth) mein rakh lei. Aisa kabhi nahin ho sakta. Ab agar koi Hanumanji par yeh tohmat lagaye to ismein Hanumanji ka kya kasur. Hum Hanumanji ko poora adar dein. Weh hamaree vedic sanskriti/culture ke mahaan path pradarshak hain.
Sita: How do I speak with my baby which is in my womb and it should understand what I am talking.
Swami Ram Swarup: There is no way to talk with baby in the womb. However, all kinds of your deeds are making effect on him. So, if you follow pious path of doing Yajyen and havan daily and study vedic culture then it also make pious and positive effect on your baby and your baby will be brave having long, happy life and bright future. So, I advise you to do the following-
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
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
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)
“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 Yajna. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.
Procedure of Chanting
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.
Tips for Pregnancy
It is said in four Vedas that “Mother is the creator of child’s future.” It is in her hands that how she builds her child’s future by adopting good spiritual preaches, which are all mentioned in four Vedas. Some of the aforesaid preach are written here.
Always be cheerful, wear pious ornaments, wear quite light coloured clothes and not dark, should keep peace in her mind, think welfare of others, should serve her Acharya/Guru (who knows Vedas), avoid such things which can cause anxiety to her.
She should not take stale food, dry food like fried vegetables etc. She should not go in haunted house, cremation ground, shouldn’t stand under the tree at night, shouldn’t get annoyed, or shout. Try to be in happy-pleasant mood all times because this all affects the baby.
When a baby is in womb then mother’s every action plays important role in building child’s physique. For child’s physical and mental growth, a mother should be careful about her eating habits and way of living so that it should not affect the child in anyway.
At this stage, simple living and high thinking counts. At this stage mother should recite Gayatri mantra and repeat the name of God both times and read spiritual books because it makes the future of baby bright. Good sceneries and spiritual photos must be seen and baseless photos, baseless talk must be avoided.
Don’t sit on heels. Do not go up and down. Asan on which you sit should be soft. Don’t try to restrain the flow of bathroom, toilet, gas etc. Do not work hard. Do not take hot and heavy eatables, also do not starve yourself. Don’t see the shallow regions like trenches, gorges, pits anything which is deep like well etc.
Pregnant lady should not put her body to motion frequently. Her body should be kept at rest position as far as possible. Always look at good things and not ugly sights, listen to good preach etc. Do not lie on back, lie on body side.
Do not take non-vegetarian food. Food having addiction should be avoided. Such deeds which our perceptions and organs restrain to do, immediately leave that deed in all respect. Food should be simple, juicy and tasty.
When mother enters in 5th month the mind of child is more active, in 6th month intellect, in 7th organs are developed. So a mother should do pious deeds because every action of mother affects the unborn baby unknowingly.
In 8th month, a pregnant lady has two hearts. One heart is her own and the other is of the baby. In this month special attention is to be given so a mother should be very much careful about it.
For good growth of child and a mother following things can be adopted:
1. In 1st month plain, cold milk should be taken. Take beneficial and nutritive food.
2. In second month lady should take milk having medicinal qualities (in which you can put elayachi, chhuara etc.) after sieving you can have it.
3. In 3rd month take 2 small tablespoon of honey and 1 small tablespoon of ghee in milk. NOTE —-NEVER TAKE IN EQUAL PROPORTION BECAUSE IT IS FATAL.
4. In 4th month mix one tola (app. 10gms) of fresh butter in milk.
5. In 5th have milk with ghee in it.
6. In 6th and 7th month have milk with kishmish, elayachi, chhuara etc. (these all are applicable if digested, otherwise take advice from physician to take better food.)
7. In 7th month, the pregnant lady experiences itching in her skin specially on her womb’s skin. As far as possible she should tolerate it and should restrain from using her nails over the effected area. She should apply the extract of sandal wood and lotus over her breast and stomach. Other option is that she may apply the mustard oil prepared by boiling sirs’s peel, flower of guava, mustard seeds, mulathi, (these are all medicinal herbs mentioned in Atharvaveda.)
In case itching is not tolerated then she may casually apply her hand over the effected area. Restrain eating sour, bitter, fried food, use less of salt, have sweet food and lot of water (at least more than 15 glasses a day). Do not let yourself be suffered from constipation. So to avoid constipation have milk with Gulkand.
Please pay attention to these advices because these lead to formation of sanskars on the child, which have a great importance to make child’s future. There are 16 sanskars in human life which are mentioned in our eternal four Vedas.
Human body is blessed by God to attain the salvation during family life and while discharging all duties of family. We should do pious deeds such as Yajyen, yoga practice. In the past three yugas dignitaries like Vyas Muni, Shri Ram, Mata Sita, Shri Krishna, all did yajyen, yoga practice while living in their family life and doing their respective duties towards Acharya, family, nation etc., and at last they achieved their goal of salvation. So we too should adopt this eternal, Vedic and pious path to achieve the same. Again it is in the hands of a mother to build a good and shining future for her child.
Neeraj: स्वामीजी नमस्ते, आपको दीपावली की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें।
मेरी दो शंका हैं जिनका मुझे समाधान चाहिए।
1. सब आर्ष ग्रंथो मैं हम पढ़ते हैं कि पांच तन्मात्राओं से पांच स्थूल भूत बबंते हैं जिसमे आकाश भी एक होता है, मेरा प्रश्न ये है कि यदि आकाश इतने बाद मैं बनता है तो इससे पहले बन्ने वाले पदार्थ कहाँ रहते हैं क्योंकि बिना आकाश के कुछ ठहर नहीं सकता है इसी प्रकार प्रलय अवस्था मे भी अव्यक्त प्रकृति के परमाणु आकाश मैं ही ठहरते होंगे। इससे सिद्ध होता है की आकाश का कभी निर्माण नहीं होता।
2. शास्त्र के अनुसार आत्मा के छ गुण होता हैं जिनमे सुख और दुःख भी हैं अब यदि आत्मा दुःख का पूरी तरह से अंत कर दे तो केवल पांच गुण ही बचेंगे तो फिर वो पदार्थ आत्मा कैसे कहलायेगा। धन्यवाद
Swami Ram Swarup: Aapko bhi mera ashirwad evam shubh kamnaye halanki deepawali tyohaar beet chukaa hai. 1.) main samajhta hoon ki main iska answer aapko pehle de chukaa hoon. Yadi answer nahi milaa toh kripa question dubara bhejein.
2.) Koi bhee jeevatma jab vedic sadhna dwara dukhon ka ant kar detee hai toh uska moksh ho jaata hai aur uska jeena marna (baar-baar) samapt ho jaata hai.
