P: Swamiji Namaste, Thank you for your reply to my questions regarding the position of women regarding lighting of funeral pyre and other things. The reason why I had asked whether women can help parents if necessary is because it comes back to the same thing that we don’t want daughters because we cant seek any help from them. i.e we will die/suffer but we will not ask help. I speak of help/concern only to the extent of one human to another, without forgetting one’s duty. Swamiji, I understand that many women are going to another extreme by ill treating their in-laws, husband etc. I certainly do not advocate such things. I only believe in helping from the humanist point of view only to the extent humanly possible. It is the living being that is important. Swamiji kindly reply and I once again thank you for enlightening me on my questions. Regards, P.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You are most welcome, please. I think I have told you that God has stated in Vedas- Bhasmantang Shareeram i.e., dead body must be burnt so it may burnt by son, or daughter or anybody else. So, why can’t daughter help the parents? She can help. You know, in the ancient times all the kings with their public used to live a life of hundred years. They used to go to jungle at seventy five years of age and never thought as to who would give them Agni at their death. Only sanyasi/Gyani left their bodies in dense jungle, from there nobody wanted to go. Sanyasi never thinks that his family members shall come from cities, villages etc., to do cremation. So, the belief that son will be supporter to the parents to cremate them is not Vedic tradition.
Sandeep: I am having problem of extreme pain in stomach for two years due to nabhi hatna. I am not recovering for the last two years. Please suggest a remedy using Yoga.
Swami Ram Swarup: Uttanpaad asan will be beneficial for you, please. Also, please make contact to the place where wrestlers do practice daily (Akhada). When you will tell your problem to the wrestler, he will guide you then and there to do something and you will be O.k.
S: I am having problems conceiving.
Swami Ram Swarup: I would advise you to take medical opinion immediately in this matter. If still it is not solved then write to me again with medical opinion.
K A S: Please suggest a Vedic solution for a chronic medical problem that has no solution. I am also contacting a homoeopath.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. In the solution, I also added some asan and prannayam in addition would be beneficial for early recovery. Now, asan and prannayam and some tips can only be explained in person. So, I again suggest you that either you come with the patient or you come alone or send any nearest relative to learn and then teach your wife to do so. You know, Almighty God has clearly instructed in Atharvaveda and Yajurveda to take medicines immediately. So, people who are now taking medicines are actually conforming to Vedas but nobody knows it since people do not listen to Vedas nowadays. So, to take a medicine is also a blessings of Almighty God.
And to do asan and prannayam is also wonderful blessings of God because yoga philosophy has been briefed first in Vedas by God and then Rishi-Munis have told us in shastras.
Two mantras are important-
1. Gayatri mantra.
2. Yajurveda mantra 3/60.
But I would like to tell you the truth that first of all, the way to do Yajyen/havan must be learnt then after ending the Yajyen (which takes about twenty minutes daily) the above two mantras are added and Almighty God blesses and fulfills the desires. That is why, I am telling you to either come here or seek a learned acharya there locally, who knows Vedas and ashtang yoga philosophy.
