Anurag Nath: What Vedas say about Messengers of God?
Swami Ram Swarup: God is Almighty i.e., He has unlimited powers to create, nurse and destroy the universe at His own. He needs no assistance.
Gabriel: I intend to place an order for all English books. Please provide an invoice to enable me arrange payment.
Swami Ram Swarup: Dear Gabrielji, My blessibgs to you for a long, happy life. I appreciate your views to study the eternal Vedic culture. The books are being sent to you.
Harshad: My friend is the follower of a popular sampraday. He said me that Lord Swaminarayan is the ultimate. He said me the following with reference to Vachnamrut book? The book is about questions and answers with Lord Swaminarayan (who is referred as Shriji Maharaj in the book). He said me that in the book, at many places Shriji Maharaj says that I am the ultimate and my figure (swarup) is exactly same as it is in akshardham (the place where the ultimate god stays). He also said me that Shriji Maharaj had sent many people into akshardham merely by his power. How can anyone prove that Shriji Maharaj is not the ultimate (the creater), as the creater never takes birth? Who was really Shriji Maharaj? How he attained such knowledge? On what basis, he can say that I am the ultimate? What is the truth about Lord Swaminarayan? Does that SAMPRADAY misguide the general public?
Swami Ram Swarup: In Vedas, God has preached Traitwad. There are three matters in the Vedas which is called “Traitwad” first Almighty God, second – souls, third – Prakriti.
Almighty God and souls are alive whereas Prakriti is non-alive from which God creates universe. So, there is not only atma (souls) but Almighty God and Prakriti are also there.
Souls (Atma) are several but God is one. Soul takes living being’s body based on his previous lives’ Karmas – good or bad so human being’s bodies , animals and birds’ body etc., are taken by souls.
So, God states in Vedas that services to mother, father , learned atithi, learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga philosophy are required to be rendered when they are alive only and not after death.
So, according to Vedas, which is knowledge direct from God, soul can never be God and God can never be turned into soul.
So, we must always beware of falsehood, which is against Vedas. However, those who make their own way of worship, they may go ahead at their own but when question of Vedas arises then there is only one Formless, Almighty, Omniscient, Omnipresent God who creates, nurses and destroys universe. He never comes in the cycle of death and birth.
