Aniket: Dear Swamiji, I have done Vipassana Meditation course. It was wonderful meditating for such long periods. I had a profound experience which I wanted to discuss with you . After a few days of meditating I slowly drifted into this state where it felt like a very tick and dense beam of extremely powerful light passing from the top of my head right through all my chakras and at the same time as I was sitting in Padmasan the whole body started vibrating like a tuning fork and I lost sense of where I was or what was going on . Pure Bliss. I wanted to asked you what would you describe this experience as? What do you think of Vipassana. Please Advice.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Whatever you have experienced, if it has been giving you regular divine pleasure and helping you to control your five senses, mind (mann) and intellect (buddhi) and giving you physical and mental strength and peace regularly and inspiring you to do meditation etc., daily to realize God then it is O.k. Otherwise, it would be a part of worldly matter. Because, the base of worldly pious deeds and spiritual path is four Vedas which are eternal and emanates directly from Almighty God in the beginning of each creation. In Vedas, daily yajyen/agnihotra with ved mantras, name jaap of God- Om and hard practice of Ashtang Yog under guidance of learned acharya of Vedas and Yog have been preached as upasana i.e., worship of God.
Simultaneously, science matters and form of pious deeds have also been preached to be done. In Ashtang yoga philosophy, the authentic dhyan i.e., meditation is the seventh stage because its six stages i.e., Yam, Niyam, asan, Prannayam, Pratyahar, Dharnna have also to be learnt and performed completely otherwise meditation will be of no use, say Vedas.
Truth Seeker: Respected swami ji , I hope you’re fine. My question- One scholar said to me
that this world will never change. It will remain in same condition always. So we should not work to change this world. Is it true according to vedas? If it’s true then why Krinvanto Vishwam aryam is mentioned in vedas?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Here change means creation of world will always remain same i.e., God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. After destroying, God again creates, nurses and destroys the universe. The said process is eternal and everlasting so, every
creation will always remain same, as is being seen now. You see, the soul takes living body based on his karmas. There are learned called dev or devtas or Aryas, devils called asurs or Anarya. The said category is still been seen at present. So, Vedas tell- ‘Krinnvanto Vishwam Aryam’.
