Sid: Pranam Guruji Guruji how should an aspirant proceed his life
1. Gain the knowledge of vedas (I am getting it from your books)
2. Take a firm decision that he will follow the preach no matter what happens. (Isn’t this firm decision hatyog please explain this)
3. He may commit some errors but should not get demoralised, stressed.
4. I will not give any attention to any wrong thought that comes in my mind and will not be afraid of these thoughts and will further try to purify my self with yoga and havana, naapjap. Guruji to follow the said path I require self determination. please tell me how is it different from hatyog or what is this hatyog.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.
1.) Yes, Vedas tell that right from the age of 6-8 years, boy or girl should start getting vedic knowledge from a learned acharya, to follow the same in the life.
2.) Vedic knowledge is always gained by a Brahmachari with full determination, devotion, dedication and too by a firm decision. This is not hathyog, being the vedic preach. Hathyog means you are doing an act against nature.
3.) Obstacles always come in life which are destroyed by hard practice as quoted above.
4.) Yes, one should never pay attention towards negative thoughts. Instead, one should continue his vedic worship and discharge daily moral duties. When a person is following vedic path, preached by God, Himself in vedas then it may never be considered as hathyog. Even the hard deed to overcome bad deeds etc., are not considered hathyog, as I quoted above. For example- we have to take water from mouth but several also take water from nose and so on.
Sid: Pranam guruji, In few of your answers you have mentioned hatyog as against Vedas. Guruji I read your books and try to implement them in life. -trying to speak truth, do asan , naam jap, havan, etc. Guruji this not hathyog na?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. No, my son, as I have quoted above. The type of worship and deeds that you are doing are not hathyog, being vedic preach.
sanjeev: Swamiji,can you tell me the procedure of menka apsara sadhna?
Swami Ram Swarup: Menka apsara sadhna is not mentioned in Vedas. So, no comments, please.
