Sushma: Pranam Guruji, my friend died. I feel sad because of this. I don’t know how to overcome this. I feel depression. Please help. Pranam Guruji.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Sudden and early death is really matter of sorrow. But on the other hand Vedas tell that in case of any death one must not weep and must not feel sadness and the matter is vast. In this connection, I have written a book named “ vedon se mrityu rahasya jaano” you are advised to send your postal address to post the book for your knowledge if you desire. The price is Rs.140/- excluding postal charges.
S: Pranam Guruji Guruji I have started to go to Gym where I do regular exercise to take care of my health. Besides I have applied for a job that requires me to totally fit. So I joined the nearby gym. But Guruji after the exercise I feel very active and energetic for whole of the day. So I am planning to continue the exercises and gym even after my exam. I just wanted to know that there is no SIN in going to gym for exercises in the morning. Pranam Guruji. Aapke Charnoon main mera pranam.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. To keep the health good daily exercises and joining the gym is necessary. So, you should continue the same.
Deepak: Swamiji charan sparsh. I was with few another guru s before I met you. I keep doing your given mantr, but one thing I want to ask. Sometimes when I feel no way of some solution mainly finacially, I start to chant mantra of devi devta which previous guru gave me. I feel like vibrations in my body, or some times I start to feel like warmness in my back. Does that mean that mantra is working? Then few months back I met to one group. Followers of that group said that all guru are not right and if you feel hotness with their mantras thats mean they are false, and you should feel coolness when you do meditation. I know these all things not written in ved but sometimes we can feel hot ness or coolness in body or in hands what is that? Even we feel like vibration on agya chakra also when we follow them. Thanks your loving son, Deepak.
Swami Ram Swarup: According to Vedas, there is only one formless, Almighty God is to be worshipped and other devi-devtas do not exist . So the false could never effect.
Kedar: Pranam swamiji, can you refute Evolution theory, chemical theory of origin of life?
Swami Ram Swarup: Rigved mantra 3/56/1 states that nobody can change the fundamental laws of creation made by God. So, according to four Vedas like Rigved mandal 10, sukta 129 and Sankhya Shastra sutra 1/26, I’ve several times quoted , the process of creation by God is unchangeable.
Surya Pratap Rathor: Pranam baba, God is just a philosophy but in actual, he is just an imagination. Vedas are written by rishi munis. Even if there is God, He is so weak that He can not change his own laws. God never protect his devotees. All devotees suffer. Bad people always wins. Why is that so?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. God is Lord of souls, prakriti and prakriti made creation. Vedas are not written by any Rishi-muni, man-woman etc., but knowledge of Vedas, in the beginning of every creation, emanates directly from God and originated in the heart of four rishis. Nothing more I can write here because you have already neglected the existence of Almighty, omnipresent God Who creates, nurses and destroys universe. However, such doubts are clarified in front of learned Acharya and not on e-mail because it requires a long discussion. Now problem is this that mostly people devote time to fulfill their requirement and selfishness, but not for God. Hence, atheism. I would like to paste my article below:-
REVERT BACK TO VEDAS
It is the essence of Vedic spiritualism that whenever an aspirant enters into it then learned acharya preaches him that Vedas are the divine voice of God, which by the power of God, are originated in the heart of four Rishis, at the beginning of each creation. Learneds who indulge in deep study of Vedas know that Vedas are alive knowledge which emanate directly from God and hence they have not been written by anyone on the earth, in the shape of a book. Since, the said knowledge is applicable to all humans right from the beginning of earth hence Vedas are not a sect.
Infact, Kapil Muni, after traditionally studying Vedas and realising the truth, after hard practice of Ashtang Yog, also states the said truth in his Sankhya shastra sutra 5/51 that Vedas are alive knowledge hence ved mantras wield the power and self-capability to make such faithful aspirants, who are involved in deep and sincere study of Vedas, to understand the meaning and idea of ved mantras. This is the reason that Kapil Muni states that Vedas are self-proof to justify the truth. To elaborate, knowledge given in ved mantra or any fact stated through ved mantras does not require to be validated/authenticated by other shastras or any other book [but like our Rishi-Munis, Rajrishis and their public used to study Vedas traditionally with faith and sincere efforts, being the Vedic order of Almighty God, for all human-beings, the said practice is not in vogue at present times].God knows when inhabitants of India would be able to adopt the said moral duties, entrusted by God, of studying and following the Vedas, which destroys all the effects of sorrows and makes our future bright with long life and also spreads international brotherhood along with other unlimited benefits.
Secondly, universe has been created about one Arab, ninety six crore, eight lakhs, fifty three thousand and one hundred and thirteen years ago.
So, logically, Vedas have also been created at this time-period. Rishi-Munis acquired Vedas’ knowledge by listening to Vedas traditionally from acharya and did agnihotra/yajyen, name jaap of God and Ashtang yog practice as preached in Vedas. In turn, they realised God and got the knowledge by doing pious deeds while leading the family life, making their future happy and bright, according to Vedas. Then they further educated people about the same because it has been the benevolent nature of every learned person, who gains Vedic knowledge and experiences divine pleasure, to share it with others. About five-six thousand years ago, Rishis wrote six shastras, Upnishads, Mahabharat (including Bhagwad Geeta) and Valmiki Ramayan much before other holy books, based on the knowledge of Vedas. All these great writers – the Rishis, have eulogised Vedas in their literary works and based on their experience have admitted that Vedas are the divine voice of God.
That is why, Kapil Muni in his Sankhya shastra sutra 1/66 and Patanjali Rishi in his Yog shastra sutra 1/7 have shared their experience to educate us that the preach of any Rishi (Mantradrishta Rishi) is also considered as a proof to reach at truth. And also the holy books written by the Rishis based on Vedic culture are also considered as proof called ‘Partah Pramann’, Vedas being Swatah Pramann. Is it not our bad luck that the said secrets of Vedas are now mostly unknown to people and at this juncture, so called preach of any modern saint (sant who is against the Vedas) which does not tally with Vedic culture and which is definitely considered by learned of Vedas as totally false/unauthentic, is being accepted happily by the innocent public? If we consider impartially then we would find that the said matter is definitely harmful to the society, being against the Vedas because it does not come within the parameter of Vedic authenticity. Now, question is that who will bell the cat?
Duly indulged in illusion and mostly intention being after the materialistic articles etc., hardly anybody spares the time to study the literary works of Rishis like Upnishads, Shastras, Nighantu, Ashtadhyayee, Shatpath Brahmin Granth and above quoted holy books which contain abundant proofs of ved mantras.
Hence, when one will fail to study these great literary works of Rishis, under the guidance of learned acharya of Vedas, then naturally anyone will cast doubt over the Vedas which implies non-awareness of Vedic knowledge. Nowadays, people study the so-called spiritual books written by ordinary people but not those written by Rishis. It shall not out of place to mention here that Atharvaved mantra 7/105/1 preaches us to study Vedas or to study the spiritual books written by Rishi-Munis. The mantra strongly stresses not to study such books which are written by ordinary people. This secret has been made unknown to the public by several saints, by stating that Vedas, Yajyen and yogabhyas are difficult and need not to be studied/performed. People do not know that God states to study Vedas and perform daily agnihotra/Yajyen, name jaap of God and practice of Ashtang yog under the expert guidance of learned acharya.
Due to ignorance of the same, people are not able to understand that they are doing sins by not obeying the God’s order of studying Vedas and doing yajyen etc. On the other hand, they are accepting the juicy lecture of saints, who are against the Vedas and who are mostly professional. Moreover, all the present sects along with their pious books have emerged about two thousand to two thousand and five hundred years ago. As compared to this, Vedas have been on this earth since One Arab, ninety six crore, eight lakhs, fifty three thousand and one hundred and thirteen years. As mentioned above, Vedas are not a book. That is why, it has become difficult to repose faith in Vedas, in the absence of deep study under guidance of learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yog.
Yet, it is a well-known fact spread by the tapasvis, Rishis-Munis by their preach and above quoted spiritual books that Vedas are eternal and immortal knowledge which emanate directly from God. This fact is even supported by renowned scientists like Maxmuller and many others who believe in authenticity of Vedas. It is further a well-known fact that Vedas have been preserved in world libraries with respect and honour, accepting Vedas as first and the most ancient literature. I mean to say that Vedas are the first knowledge which came on the earth. It was spread orally through the tradition of acharya and disciple, right from the beginning of the earth, as mentioned above. So, Vedas were remembered by heart by everyone. About five thousand three hundred years ago, for the first time, Vyas Muniji, who himself remembered the Vedas by heart traditionally, wrote them on Bhojpatra for the benefit of mankind. He completed the said pious task on the day of poornnima, about five thousand three hundred years ago. Since, then the poornnima has been named and remembered as Vyas Poornnima. Further, when printing press came into existence in sixteenth century, the Vedas written on Bhoj patra by Vyas Muniji were printed in the form of book which is called “Samhita” and not ved. Samhita means collection of ved mantras which has been printed. Half of the intellectuals of the world believe Vedas to be the divine voice of God and yet half of the intellectuals believe that Vedas have been written by some great scientist who has no parallel to himself in the entire world. But learned of Vedas know that God is the scientist of all scientists and no one is born even equivalent to such God nor shall be born in future. Then what to talk about being above the God.
It is also pertinent to mention here that a part of Bheeshma parv of Mahabharat have been secluded, named and printed as Bhagwad Geeta (eighteen chapters). Infact, Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj has praised and eulogised Vedas in Bhagwad Geeta. The above stated facts are known only to learned of Vedas. The saints who are ignorant of the knowledge of Vedas are naturally ignorant of the Vedas’ knowledge contained in Bhagwad Geeta and are therefore compelled not to explain the shloka of Bhagwad Geeta, briefly and truly wherein the reference and truth of Ved mantras exists. Why? Because they have not studied Vedas.
However, most of the present literary works and most of the saints are reiterating the fact that Vedas are divine voice of God. In this connection, Almighty, omnipresent, formless God has already stated in Atharvaved mantra 12/5/40 that those who do not study Vedas but take a piecemeal (portion) of Ved mantras, only which suits them, by means of studying other books etc., or listening from anywhere else [not based on traditional study of Vedas] will be punished by me (God).
Isn’t it surprising that yet no one is taking the initiative to study Vedas. On the contrary, those deeds which are against the Vedas and promote blind faith are being done on large scale. To experience the truth, we will have to revert back to Vedas.
So, if you have some time to devote here with me, to discuss matter personally, I shall welcome you.
Dr. Sharma: Pranam swamiji, we read at vedas that there are two margs – Devyaan marg and Pitriyan marg. but we never learned from Vedas that Lokaishna Vitteshna and putreshan should be stopped. Can you show me that mantra where the aforesaid mantra is given? Sharp analysis required.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Knowledge of Vedas is vast and deep and requires more and more time to understand including the idea of ved mantras. Lokaishna, Vitteshna and putreshan are not required for a sanyasi ascetic and naishthik brahmachari but those who follow the Vedic path and worship God accordingly they need to understand the deep meaning of Yajurved mantra 40/14 that after performing Yajyen and doing practice of Yog vidya, while discharging all family duties etc., the aspirant must be capable to indulge his mind and intellect in God and all pious deeds and moral duties should be performed simultaneously.
Vidya Sagar: Guruji Namaskar, need your ashirwaad to clarify this doubt. If we are YES MAN to Moorkha, then are we not responsible for the sin of saying YES to Adharma even though you do not believe? (Asathya may be, cause your nature is as per dharma but accepting other person adharma).
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskarji. Nobody is indulged with a moorkha for all the time. To avoid talk with moorkha, we’ve to make talk with him as he desires.
Raju: Yadi hum krishna bhagwan ki jagah hote to maiya yashoda se sawere batchit kis prakar kaarte?
Swami Ram Swarup: We can only imagine such event but it can never be true.
