Mantsha: Raja Dashrath ke pita ka nam kya tha?
Swami Ram Swarup: Aj
Hanuman: Hanuman‘s caste brahman, yes or no?
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes though his race was vaanar but according to Yajurved mantra 31/11 he can be called Brahmin because he was learned of all four Vedas and Ashtang yog philosophy.
If nowadays somebody has got his name as Hanuman, Sri Ram Chandra, Sri Krishna etc., then it is a different kind of situation because question arises whether such people have same divine qualities as quoted above or not.
Shyam: Swamiji can you mention in which Hindu scripture prophet Muhammad (PUBH) is MENTIONED? Are ther any other religious books! Sounds prophecy about MUHAMMAD sahib?
Swami Ram Swarup: No, please there is no such religious book.
Mitesh: Namakar swamiji. Mera Question ye hai ki Atharvaveda me kuch aese Kaand hai jisme natural powers (like magic) ke baare me kaha gya hai. to kya ye satya hai?. kya black magic jesa kuchh hota hai?.
*Dusra Que : Bhagwan to param kripalu parmeshwar hai. unko kisi ke aadhar ki avashyakta nahi hai. to fir iss shrishti ka sarjan kyu kiya unhone?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskarji.
(1) Nahi, yeh sattya nahi hai ki Atharvaved mein magic kand ka varnnan ho. Nahi black magic jaisa koi matter sansaar mein nahi hai. Yeh swarthvash manushyon ke banaye hue mannghadant batein hain. Aap theek kehte hain, Ishwar ne srishti kee rachna nahi kee hai, apitu Yajurved mantra 31/4 Ke anusar, Ishwar ke ek ansh matra Shakti arthat ek atom is bhi bahut hee kam Shakti, jub jad prakriti mein karya kartee hai(Ishwar nahi karta) tub prakriti se yeh sari srishti ka nirmann ho jata hai. Isliye srishti rachna mein prakriti upadaan karann hai aur Parmeshwar nimit updan karann hai . In this regard, I paste my article below:-
Why God has created the universe?
It is usually asked as to why God should create all this at all. Why indicates “mark of interrogation” i.e., question, that is, what is the reason behind? So, actually the above question will be what is the reason behind creation of the universe? Its answer will be that creation is eternal. A deep study of four Vedas reveals that God, prakriti and souls are called “Swayambhu”. Swayambhu means which has not been made by anyone. The universe is created from prakriti but prakriti is non-alive and God is alive. At a stipulated time (which is eternal) power of God (not God) acts in prakriti and universe is created. This creation is eternal then the power of God nurses the creation and automatically at a stipulated time, the final destruction takes place. So creation, nursing and destruction take place automatically at a fixed time. It means creation, nursing and destruction is eternal and God has not to decide or even think for the same. So question does not arise to put question that why God should create all this at all.
Freedom to the human beings to do good or bad deeds is also eternal and thus everlasting but God awards the result of deeds. So naturally, here also the question of grading etc., does not arise because such process is eternal and everlasting. It is only for the person to decide whether he follows true path of Vedas for long, happy life and to attain salvation or he wants to be indulged in illusion to do sins etc. God has nothing to do for the same, being eternal law. Keeping the above views in mind, to give or not to give freedom is now not a question please.
God has not only given the freedom to do good or bad deeds but he has blessed us with the knowledge of Vedas wherein other pious rules and regulations to live a long, happy life have been mentioned. For e.g.: In Yajurveda, God states that the best pious deed is Yajyen, to be performed by all. Then moral duties have been mentioned to be discharged. In Vedas, God has warned that if anybody will not obey the preach of God mentioned in Vedas then only the God will punish the defaulter.
So naturally, the sins are done when people do not listen to Vedas or do not make contact with learned Acharya. Yes, if God could not have preached us in Vedas to follow pious path. Then it would have been the fault of God only. But really, God is merciful and has showered all blessings upon us in Vedas to follow.
