Deepak: स्वामीजी चरण स्पर्श ,, क्या कोई विशेष दिन होता है हफ्ते में यां महीने में कुछ भी शुभ कार्य करने के लिए, जेसे बहुत लोग कोई नया काम यां शुभ कार्य करने के लिए मुहुर्त देखते है
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessing to you, my son. Ved vidya ke anusar har din har pal shubh hee shubh hai. Isliye hum kisi bhi din jo hamein suit karta hai, shubh karya prarambh kar sakte hain. I also paste my article-

Shubh Din

All the days, week, month, years, minutes, seconds have been created by God and thus are always pious. Regarding the philosophy of deeds, Vedas tell that we have come here to face the previous lives’ deeds (good or bad) according to Rigveda mantra 10/135/1,2 and we have to face the said deeds in the shape of pleasure and pain respectively. So, the days are not concerned with auspiciousness or bad omens. If we do pious deeds today then one day we will enjoy pleasure and if we do bad deeds then in the future on any day we will have to face sorrows awarded by God. So, the day becomes full of pleasure or full of sorrows when we face our deeds as said above. So days are never good or bad but always pious and gifted. So days are never good or bad, but always pious and gifted to us by God to always do pious deeds to enjoy life.

Also the days, nights and times are never ashubh (unfortunate) being created by the purest God. only deeds done by us are bad or good. And based on the previous lives’ deeds we have to face the result thereof accordingly on one particular day and time. So days are not good or bad. It is our own deeds done by us which are bad or good.

So one can enter at one’s own convenience or suitability in his newly constructed house, shop etc., or start any pious work at any time. However, one should perform havan with Ved mantras before ensuing any of those works. It does not depends on any name and date of birth etc. because it is not mentioned in Vedas. We must be always away from blind faith.

O.K., my son, open your new stitching unit during July and my blessings to you, to get success.

Anil S: I want to know the vasus mantra
Swami Ram Swarup: Vaasu or Vasu means the God Who gives shelter to everyone and provides all goods to live upon and His name is OM. If the meaning of Vaasu or Vasus is other than Formless God Who creates, nurses and destroys the universe, then I’m sorry, such name has not been mentioned in Vedas.
