Sachin: Namastey ji. do you consider Swami Vivekananda as a perfect yogi like Shri Krishna?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Vivekanandji was the follower of present Vedanta philosophy. So, as quoted above, no comments can be offered.
Sachin: Namastey ji. I read your book on yoga, I want to thank you for giving us real knowledge of yoga. My question is that what is soma? Do all yogis are equally powerful or does it depends person to person?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namsateji. You are welcome, please. In Vedas, the meaning of Som is decided according to the respective mantra. However, the main meaning of Som is the divine pleasure which is experienced by a Yogi when he realizes God in Samadhi. When a Yogi attains Dharammegh samadhi, as mentioned in Yog shastra sutra 4/29, 30, 31 it means he has attained the last stage of samadhi and has realized God. So, all the Yogis who attain the said stage are equally powerful, otherwise not.
S R: Pranam Swamiji,swamiji mera naam sachin hai mai ek ladki se shadi karna chahata hu aur WO bhi muzhe shadi Karne ko taiyaar hai mere ghar ke log bhi is rishate se razi hai aur usse pasand bhi karate hai lekin shayad uske ghar wale razi nahi honge to muze kya karna chahiye.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Aapkee shadi ke matter main jub aapke ghar wale raazi hain toh aap sabka bas yahi ek farz hai ki kisi bhi tarah ladki ke ma-baap ko pyar se manaa lein. Beech mein koi samajhdaar mediator dal lein, yeh bahut achha rahega. Issey pyar aur khushi dono badeinge.
A: Charan sparsh Swamiji. Swamiji, kia shadi-shuda hote huwe bhi jab ek stree ke man mein kisi aur purush ke liye prem aur sammaan ki bhavnayein utpan howe to kia ye ek bura karma mani jati hai? Aur jab eisi bhavnayein hon to uss stree ko kia karna chahiye? Please note Swamiji, ki ye bhavnayen physical hone se koi matlab nahin hai, lekin donon bahot gehre dost ki tarah aapas mein milte hai to bahot baat aur charcha karte hai, sath samaye bitana chahate hai. Kindly give your views and advise Swamiji. Bahot dhanyavaad.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Shadi- shuda hokar bhi yadi kisi istree ke mann mein pusrush ke prati prem aur sammaan utpann hota hai toh pehle yeh check karna padega ki weh prem aur sammaan vishaye-vikari to nahin hai. Agar vishaye-vikari hai to yeh us istree ke liye maha-paap hoga jiska phal ussey bahut dukh ke roop mein bhogna hoga. Yeh Ishwar ka banaya niyam hai.
Aisee istree ko turant aise gandey vichaar chhod deney chahiye. Kyunki jitna time uske yeh gande vichaar rahe utna to ussey dukh bhogna hee padega. Isliye jitnee jaldi yeh gande vichaar woh nari chhod degee utna hee kum dukh uthana padega.
Yeh niyam purush par bhi lagoo hota hai. Doosree baat yeh hai ki chahey weh dono gehrey dost hon, kewal samay saath bitana chahtey hon parantu iskee permission vedic dharma bilkul nahin deta. Apitu isko upar kaha paap kehte hain. Ashirwad.
Swami Ram Swarup: You are welcome please.
