Anonymous: Aadarneeya swami ji, Saadar namaste! Maine kuchh sthanon par padha hai ki ishwar ka dhyan karne karne ke liye mann ko donon netronn ke beech ke sthaan arthat agya chakra me sthit karke tab ishwar ka chintan karna chahiye. Lekin jab main aisa karti hoon to pura dhyan to agya chakra me hi laga rahta hai tab phir ishwar ka chintan kaise ho. Kripaya samadhan karen. Dhanyawaad!
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Dhyan aur chintan karne ka sthan agyachakra, Nasagreh aur Hriday ka sthan hai. jahan jisko achcha lagey, dhyan karey aur chintan karey. Jaise school mein ek teacher lecture deita hai tub student uske munh kee Taraf dhyan rakhte hain aur saath-saath uske lecture sunkar samajhte hain waise dhyan agyachakra mein rekho aur mann se chintan karo. Dheere-dheere abhyas karte-karte perfection aa jayegee.
Tushar: Swamiji, Namaste. I want to know that how can we know that the deed which we do is effect of purva janam or not. Or the present situation is due to our purva janama. This may be helpful to improve our present deeds which may prevent us to commit Sin or may improve our this janam.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. The effect of previous lives’ deeds cannot be known by anyone. Vedas tell if a person follows the vedic path under the guidance of learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yoga, then he can destroy the bad effect of his sins of previous life, so in the shape of human life it is our duty to worship God to kill the sins of previous life. Nobody should waste his time to kill the previous lives’ sin. The above worship concludes that a person becomes automatically able to take himself away from any kind of sins. Effects of bad deeds of previous lives’ may be seen in the world at every moment by seeing problems, sickness, tensions, early death etc., etc., i.e., thousands of sorrows being faced in every family life. The fundamental law of Vedas tells that a person has to face the effect of previous lives’ bad deeds/sins then he is indulged in problems, sickness, tension, accident, early death etc., and when he has to face the effect of pious deeds of previous lives. Then he experiences pleasure/happiness.
Mithin: Samaj mein sambav ki anivarya hai
Swami Ram Swarup: Samaj mein samaanta kee avashyakta to hai hee, iske bina to rashtra unnatti nahin kar sakta. Hum chote-badon mein koi antar na samajhein. Sab ko ek samaansamjhein aur sab hee apas mein mil-jul kar rahein. Is vishya mein Rigveda mantra kehta hee hai-
Arthat hum sath-sath milkar unnatti karein.
Ashwin: Swamiji, my pranams to you. I read an article that the Vedas are corrupted and hence not authentic. Please clarify me. Thank you.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. In this regard, I paste my article. In case of further doubt, you can always put forth your query.
Could Vedas too have been corrupted by wrong insertions?
Actually Manusmriti, Ramayana, Geeta and Bhagwad geeta etc, were not condemned by the arrogant they tried to add false shlokas to change the real meaning only. Whereas directly or indirectly, the arrogant tried to spread a fear regarding Vedas that Vedas are difficult/hard and must not be studied. So they did not touch the Vedas.
Secondly, when the propaganda was being made against the Vedas, many learned of Vedas were alive and could oppose but the learned were not much interested to study other holy books except Vedas, as Vedas are complete knowledge.
Thirdly, the language of the Vedas was typical for them being divine Sanskrit language and not man-made. So less than a complete Yogi is not able to make any change in Vedic eternal mantras because first mantras will have to be learnt for which Sanskrit knowledge was to be gained which was a typical job for arrogant. You see, even at present no false prophet or arrogant has tried to change the idea of Ved mantras, yet they are creating fear that Vedas are not needed to be studied. However, Maxmuller and other persons still tried to change the real meaning of Ved mantras but those people did not dare to add any Ved mantra etc.
You will see that at one place, a truth is seen in the above Manusmriti shlokas etc., and thereafter the false shlokas added therein, contradict the truth but as far as Vedas are concerned, still the truth begins right from the beginning till end. There is no contradiction. So no false mantras are added in eternal knowledge of Vedas which emanates direct from God. In India, there are so many learned Brahmins who have the knowledge of all Ved mantras by heart and any change if made, which is even impossible, being divine Sanskrit language, they will come forward against it.
Vedas, are still originated in the heart of a Yogi as I have already stated giving the proof of Kapil muni’s Sankhya sutras 5/48 to 51 and Atharvaveda mantra 4/30/3 wherein it is clearly stated that the mantras are now also originated in the heart of a Ashtang yogi but on the contrary, Manusmriti or any other granth written by Rishi is never originated in the heart of a yogi or anybody else. So in the said holy granths comparison of false or true shlokas is mostly not possible.
As you know, at the time of final destruction of universe, all the granths including the true granths will be no more and the printed copies of the Vedas will also be destroyed. But as per the rules of the God vide Yajurveda 31/7 and Shwetashwataropnishad 6/8 eternal knowledge of the Vedas will automatically be originated in the heart of four rishis.
