Anonymous: Paranam Swami Ji….
Mai yeh puchna cahati hun ki death ke baad kayin log garur puran apne gharon mai sunte hain kya voh sach hai jo uss gurur puran mai likha hua hai aur kya ishwar sach mai karmo ke hisab se khun ki nadiyon se par karwata hai?
Swami Ram Swarup: Beta garud puran vedon ke khilaf hai isliye vedon ke gyata vidwan isey nahi mante, yeh insanon ke dwara khud banaye marg hain ismein koi sachai nahi hai. Beti mera aapko bahut bahut ashirwad. Parivar sahit sukhi raho.
Anonymous: Guruji Pranam, even after very hard work, I do not get desired result and this demotivate me. Friend and colleague who worked less than me have progressed a lot compare to me. This is demotivating me and I am on verge of depression. Please advice me.
Swami Ram Swarup: Facing ups and downs in life, and overcoming problems
Sometimes childhood is spent in happiness and youth or old age faces trouble etc. In other cases sometimes childhood is spent in troubles and youth or old age becomes happy. All this is due to the result of our previous good or bad deeds. But our present deeds are valuable. Present pious deeds remove all previous deeds and one becomes happy obliterating all his sorrows. Expectations generate problems if they are not fulfilled. So, one must always work hard to a right path.
He may seek help from others when needed but he must never expect that the help will be continued or will give good result. So your hard working, earning, pious deeds, daily worship etc., will sure make your family happy.
Hindrances always come in life and will remain too but the learned hard worker never cares for the same. He faces the hindrances and problems happily to overcome the same. If a sailor takes across his boat from one bank to other bank of river safely, in the absence of a storm, then he will not be considered as efficient as the sailor who takes across his boat safely through a stormy river.
So those who are afraid of problems/interferences in life, they can never attain final liberation. They will always be indulged in problems and will always remain worried. So please be brave, take care of your health, try to make contact with the learned to seek advice, follow the Vedic religion, do daily hawan.
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science and simultaneously in spiritualism, daily havan, to make contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and kill the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.
One must awake early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises. Must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-veg. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future. All these stated above, (pious deeds) will solve your problems.
To be happy from within, one has to feed the soul with eternal knowledge of Vedas through the speech of an alive Acharya. So always try to make contact with learned Acharya and follow his preach. Whatever, you or the world is doing in the matter of earning money, that all is a food of human body only and not of soul which resides in the body. Eternal knowledge of the God when given to the soul through five senses all that is the food of soul and then only permanent peace is attained. So Yajurveda Mantra 40/14 states that human body is meant to get progress in both spheres (materialistic and spiritual) simultaneously. Please be brave and go ahead to attain both worldly and spiritual progress.
IN THIS BIRTH NO SUBH KARMA BUT ENJOYING LUXURIOUS LIFE
The peace it is a result of previous lives’ good deeds that the lady is enjoying wealth. But, you see, at the time of enjoying such wealth, in the absence of worship and good manners naturally, the pious deeds are not being added, as a result, the store of good deeds is being minimized day by day.
When the effect of pious deeds gets exhausted completely one day, the person will have to face the sorrows. We’ve the example of Ravanna, Kansa and Duryodhan etc., who enjoyed all matters of world but one day, they had to repent when the effect of previous lives’ deeds ended. So, we should judge our lives’ deeply whether we worship and make our character good to please Almighty God, Who showers His blessings with a long, happy life on us.
So, we should start doing pious deeds like worship and control over our senses, mind and intellect to refrain from sins, to earn the good effect of pious deeds i.e., punnya which only helps us in this life as well as in future births.
This birth, in the shape of human beings is blessed by God, to know present and future rebirths and main motto of this life is to attain salvation by following Vedic path.
Shouting on parents etc., is naturally a sin, which is to be faced by the wrong- doer and if a person gives respect and serves parents/elders naturally, he’ll get good award in return, though it may take time but fundamental laws of God are unchangeable. So, the person will sure get award.
