SS: Will I do better in a job or a business? How will be my life and marriage?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. You must first be earning well and then should think about marriage. If your qualification is good, then you should apply for IAS exam or engineering etc. Then you should do service. Otherwise, you must make your future bright by doing business of your aptitude.
Malu: Pranam swamiji, I have doubt about after death life that came from mahabaharatha , I read droupathi and four pandavar’s excluding Yudhishtir cannt able to reach “Bhagaval Padam” becouse of their deeds. And suffered Narag life for a peroid left four pandvas and Dhroupathi reached Bhagaval Padam. When Yudhistir reached devalokam he saw Dhuryodan sitting there..eventhough going through a life of evil.. how can we justify that?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. In this regard, I paste my relevant answer-
How do we know that only 10,000 verses of the Mahabharata are the real?
There is a statement by King Bhoj in his book “Sanjeevini” about which Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati too states:
“Vyasji wrote 4400 shlokas of mahabharat to which another 5,600 authentic shlokas were added by the disciples of Vyasji. During the reign of Maharaja Vikramaditya another 20,000 shlokas were added. Further Maharaja Bhoj says that during the reign of his father 25,000 and during half of his life time 30,000 more shlokas have been added to the Mahabharat book. If this process of addition of shlokas continues then the time is not far when Mahabharat book would have to be compared to the burden loaded on a camel.”
There have been false additions to Mahabharat epic from time to time. Regarding this Kashinath Rajvade writes:
“The present Mahabharat is a corrupt and enlarged edition of the ancient Mahabharat. This ancient work has been diluted from time to time with all sorts of additions and has grown in proportion on that account.”
However, it is a deep research of the learned persons, which is logically also true, that Vyas Muni only wrote ten thousand shlokas of Mahabharat. Now Mahabharat contains more than one lakh twenty thousand shlokas i.e., one lakh ten thousand shlokas have been added afterwards by some foolish.
After studying this, you may send your query again, if any. But it is quite clear that God gives punishment to those who do sins. So, everybody must save themselves from committing sins. Then there shall be no fear of death. But to know about pious deeds or sins, one should listen Vedas, in the absence of Vedic knowledge, fact cannot be known. I would advise you to read some Vedic books written by me, which can be sent on receipt of your postal address, if you desire.
B: Pranam, Guruji. Charan Sparsh. As confirmed I will come to Ved Mandir ffor three days. Further, Guruji, I have one cousin brother who is interested to follow vedic path. We have regular discussion on Vedas, I have also given your books to him for reading. He has expressed his desire to come with me to Ved Mandir on these dates. So initially I have just tried to know intensity of him to really follow this divine path and I told him that please come if you have firm desire else it should not be only due to temporary curiosity. But he said that he wants to follow this and wishes to come, so Guruji please advice can he come with me to Ved Mandir on these dates. Awaiting for your guidance please. With Charan Sparsh.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. You both are always welcome, here. So, bring your cousin brother, who seems to be blessed by Almighty God to come here to Ved Mandir. Again, My blessings to you.
