Harish Arya: Please guru ji can you tell me some verses of holy Vedas that are controversial with holy Geeta like at many places Krishna is saying that I am God, I know that it is the mistake of translators that have translated the saloks of Geeta but I want to know the Vedic verses which prove that incarnation does not exist.
Swami Ram Swarup: Bhagwad Geeta has been written by Vyasmuniji and orated by Sri Krishna Maharaj. Both the dignitaries were learned of Vedas and Yoga Philosophy. So, it is not possible to comment over Geeta by those who do not know about vedas’ eternal knowledge and do not practise Ashtang Yoga Philosophy, which is part and parcel of vedas. With the blessings of God and My Guru Maharajji, I’ve written detailed comments on each Shloka of Bhagwad Geeta upto chapter 12 in part I and II books. Both the parts are available at M/s Vijay Kumar Govindram Hasanand, Nai Sadak, Delhi.
You are advised to purchase the book from the said shop and you’ll find there is no controversy between Bhagwad Geeta shloka and Vedas and where Sri Krishna Maharaj has declared himself as God, it is the deepest statement of Sri Krishna Maharaj to be understood according to vedas that he is not declaring himself as God because Avtarwad is not possible.
Regarding incarnation, I paste my article.
God is only one who creates the universe and no other can create the universe except God. Please think deeply is any one except God empowered for creation, etc.? The pious qualities of God are unlimited whereas qualities of soul, which resides in human body, are limited. That is why He is God. This fact is also mentioned by Rishi Patanjali in his Yog shastra sutra 1/24, “KALEASHKARAMVIPAKASHYAIHI APRAMRISHTAHA PURUSHVISHESHAHA ISHWARAHA” i.e., He who is not indulged in any sorrows/sufferings (kalesh), in any kind of deed (karma) and result thereof (vipakya), He is supreme in souls and is called Ishwar (God), whereas, soul is indulged in all the said matters according to deeds done in previous, and in the present life. So this is also a difference between God and souls and therefore soul can never be God based on the different qualities.
Amongst unlimited qualities of God, few may be enumerated-that God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent and Almighty, beyond description, beyond imagination, and beyond calculation. Nobody on the earth can deny such qualities, but these qualities are to be discussed and considered deeply and he who does the same is called MUNI as per Vedas and shastras.
Let us think over one quality of God – Being Almighty. Almighty means God has all powers and thus God, to control the universe and to do any kind of deed for the same, can not be dependent on another, at any cost, being Almighty. Again shastras say, which is a true saying too, that there must be reason behind for any creation, matter etc. God is a reason to create the universe. Parents are the reason to give birth to a child. Ravana took Sita forcefully which became a reason for war between Shri Ram and Ravana etc. So as per Vedas there must be a reason of avtar and after studying eternal knowledge of Vedas and thinking deeply, there seems no reason to take avtar by Almighty God. As in Yajurveda mantra 2/26, so is in Shwetashwaropnishad shlok 6/8 wherein it is mentioned that there is no reason to form a God and thus God is also formless i.e., nobody can make God but God creates universe from non-alive prakriti. Secondly the said Upnishad says that the
deeds of God of creation, nursing, and destruction of universe are eternal, natural, and automatic. So naturally God needs no avtar to destroy Kalyug, earth, or devils etc., being Almighty i.e., God has all powers and is independent. Not God but only His powers are enough to control, create, nurse, destroy the universe. That is why Upnishad says that God has no desire to create etc., but it is eternal and natural and this sort of desire is named “IKSHAN” and not desire to create etc.
Suppose God has to kill a devil and He takes avtar and God kills the devils by arrow etc. It means God is not Almighty and independent because God has taken help of Avtar (Human body) and arrow, gun, etc., which is impossible.
This all I have told based on fundamental law of eternal knowledge of four Vedas. Yet if anybody says about avtar then it is their own views and they are satisfied with their views and can not be commented because they could have been realizing at their own but so far as eternal knowledge of Vedas is concerned, Avtar is not possible.
Raja: Pranaam Guruji, I am blessed with a baby boy on 4th December and I suggested his name as Ranveer. Please guruji let me know about the meaning of this name and will this name be good for him?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. “Ran” means battlefield. “Veer” means “brave warrior”. So, meaning of the name of your loving son would be a “brave warrior” who always stands and fights in battlefield to kill the enemies or to kill the illusion.
Yes, the name is good for your son however, according to Vedic procedure, name is awarded by performing holy Yajyen of naam karan sanskar. So, try to perform holy Yajyen to bless your baby.
Also, my blessings to your loving son for long, happy life.
Anonymous: My son does not want to read and write. Please give suggestion.
Swami Ram Swarup: Love generates love. Child expects love from parents. So, please always advise your son with loving words and not by commanding words. The child may take some time to understand your advise but after sometime, he’ll obey you and begin his study with full concentration of mind. So, please have patience, do not loose temper and then go ahead.
I would also advise you to do daily hawan with Gayatri mantra with your son and all family members, in the end of hawan pray God for the betterment of your child.
