Basant: Pranaam Swami, I hope you stay healthy and keep on doing this great fantastic work by answering questions of people like me. Swami ji my experience says that We and god both cannot change the laws of physics. Dear swami ji do you think that Intention always matters ?
Hamare pas to Hriday hai lekin kya Parmatma ke pas bhi Hriday hai? Taali ek hath se nahi bajti. Yadi parmatma ke pas Hriday hai to Hriday to galatiyan karata hai. kya parmatma bhavnaon mein bahkar galti nahi kar sakta? Parmatma ke pas hriday nahi hai to vo Robot jaisa hua. Ham parmatma se Prem kyun karen? I will be obliged if you answer my question. Thanks.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Thanking you, please. With the blessings of Almighty God and good wishes of all loving readers like you, I will always try my level best to serve the people and country. Fundamental laws of Almighty God are unchangeable and unchallengeable. But to know the said fact, one has to study Vedas, do daily Yajyen/Agnihotra with ved mantras and practice of Ashtang Yog under the guidance of learned acharya. You see, nobody pays attention towards the said tapasya and hence the problem. So, we the human-beings and other living beings have to follow the preach of Vedas and laws of Almighty God. Physics also emanates from Vedas. However, in any matter of science, if the Vedic science is not applied and instead man-made theory is considered then man-made theory is always changeable.
Yes, good intention gives good result and bad intention gives bad result. So, intention always matters. Person who follows Vedic path and does daily worship/Yoga practice etc., his senses are controlled and his intention always remains pious i.e., for everyone’s benefit.
Agar Parmatma ke paas hriday, ankh, naak hoti to weh hamare jaisa aadmi hee hota, Parmatma nahin hota. Hum alive souls hain jo shareer mein rehtey hain. Hum indriyon/organs par dependent hain arthat hamein dekhna hai to ankh chahiye, sunna hai to kaan, sochna hai to dimaag chahiye. Parantu Parmeshwar ko kisi saharey kee zaroorat nahin. Weh Nirakar evam Sarvashaktimaan hai, isliye Weh bina ankh ke dekhta hai, bina kaan ke sunta hai aur bina mind ke sochta hai. Parmatma paap aur karma bandhnon se parey hai. Isliye galti nahin kar sakta. Parmatma ko jaanne ke liye, vidwaan se vedon ko sunna avashyak hai. Koi bhi kewal apne dimaag ke aadhar par bhagwan ko nahin jaan sakta. Parmatma se isliye prem karein ki sansar mein bhi agar koi kisi kee madad dil se karta hai to weh pyar ke vash mein hokar hee kar sakta hai. Jahaan pyar nahin wahaan nafrat aur dikhawa aadi hota hai. Ishwar to sabse prem karta hai. Ab hamara farz hai ki hum Ussey prem karein. Weh sansar kee dhan aadi sub cheezon ka data hai, hum Ussey prem aur Uski pooja kareingey to weh hamarey sub bhandar bhar deita hai. Lekin ek baat yaad rakhein ki jub tak vedon ko sunkar hamein Parmatma ke gunn, karma, shakti ka gyan nahin hota to hum Parmatma se sachcha prem nahin kar sakte. Kewal dikhawe wala prem kareingey. Iisliye hum vedon ko sunkar sabse pehle Ishwar ke swaroop ko jaanein.Yahi hamara dharma/kartavya bhi hai.
Seeta Tiwari: Which state called brahmrishi desh in vedic kaal?
Swami Ram Swarup: Whole of the world used to call us Brahmarishi desh/Vishwaguru, based on Vedic knowledge.
Tasha: Namaste Swamiji, Could you explain: how did life and the earth come to be according to Hinduism? As in, what is the creationism story according to Hindu religion? Thank you!
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste, my daughter.
In this connection, I paste my article below after reading it, you can put query, if any.
The creation is eternal and automatic. There is no date of creation of the following:
(A) Almighty God who is alive, immortal, formless, creates, nurses and destroys the universe. He never indulges in any maya, mahamaya, illusion and deeds (good or bad. Yajurveda Mantra 40/8 and Yog shastra Sutra 1/26 also refer)
(B) Soul: Soul is alive, the purest, away from sins etc. but illusion covers the soul due to which soul forgets his original form and hence remains in sorrows, problems etc.
C) Prakriti: Non-alive and has three qualities. i.e., Raj, tam, Satva. At a proper time, the power of God acts in prakriti and the universe is created. So the creation is eternal and automatic.
Raj, Tam and Satva are the three qualities of prakriti. When the said gunnas remain idle dormant i.e., do not work, then combination of these three gunnas(qualities) in dormant stage is called prakriti and this time is called “final destruction” of the universe. When an appropriate time comes, the creation is to be started again. Then the power of God works in the above three gunnas i.e., in the prakriti and immediately the creation starts. Rajo gunn is a sign of sensuousness etc., Tamo gunn signifies laziness and sato gunn signifies ego, pride. Our human body is also made of the said three gunnas.
Vedas tell that there are three eternal/immortal matters- first: Almighty God, second: souls, third: prakriti. Almighty God creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates it. The said process of creation is eternal/immortal/everlasting. Almighty God creates the universe from prakriti. When the raj, tam and satva gunnas of prakriti remain idle (dormant condition/inactive) then creation does not take place. At an appropriate time, a power of Almighty God acts in prakriti (i.e., in Raj, tam and satva gunnas). Immediately the process of creation starts and the first matter of prakriti is made which is called –Mahat i.e., mind; from Mahat- ahankar is made, from ahankar panch (5) tan matrayein, from panch (5) tanmatrayein, panch (5) mahabhoot are created. From panch mahabhoot, the entire matter of universe i.e., Sun, Moon air, water, our bodies, bodies of other living beings etc., are created. The whole creation is thus created from prakriti and remains still (in active) like a statue. This creation is called non-sexual creation. In the said creation, the young human bodies are created which are neither old nor babies. Then by the power of God, in the said bodies, breathing system (prann vaayu) starts operating. At last, God enters into the universe and immediately all the humans and other living beings become alive and start functioning. Similarly, the non-alive matters like Sun, moon, earth, air, water etc., start their respective functions.
Creation, Science, worldly matters etc., is not possible until the same is created by someone. Secondly, knowledge is attained when knowledge is imparted by someone.
Rigved mantra 10/129/ 1-6 throw light about creation that at that time, there was nothing and no living beings did exist. So there was no learned acharya who could give the knowledge to the newly created living beings like parents who educate the children to make them able to speak language and to know about the matters like crow, animals, chapati, ghee, sun, moon i.e., all matters of the world. See, if a newly born baby is managed to live in dense jungle and nursed well but he is not given education about the worldly matters etc. i.e., mathematics, science, animals, sun, moon etc., then even at the young age of 20-25, 30 years, he will not be able to speak any language and when he will be brought out of the cave of dense jungle and will be asked about the sun, moon, animals, birds before him, then he will not be able to reply because he was not given the said knowledge.
When we see towards sun, moon, air, space, human body etc. It is clearly understood that the said creation has not been made by any human being but Almighty God, from whom the knowledge of four Vedas emanates. In Vedas, the knowledge right from straw to Brahma has been mentioned. So in the beginning of non-sexual earth, the Vedas originated in the heart of four rishis: Agni, Vaayu, Aditya and Angira, and from the rishis the knowledge of science, deeds and worship along with every matter is being given to the public by which the public became educated scientist and wrote books, etc.
In Vedas as well as in fourth chapter of Yog Shastras of Rishi Patanjali, it is mentioned that those who do not believe in God are provided more and more facilities by nature and such people get spoiled etc.
On the contrary those who worship God, they naturally try to kill their desires and accordingly under the law, nature, help them to follow the true path to realize the God.
It is also pertinent to mention here that in Vedas, there is no mention of avtarwad or any proper noun, please. Vedas do not even contain any story or past, present or future life of anyone. Vedas contain knowledge i.e., entire science, form of deeds/duties and worship of God. Actually Vedas give knowledge right from straw to Brahma (God) of entire universe.
All four Vedas tell to worship a formless, Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God was one, is one and shall ever remain one. He is unchangeable, unchallengeable and beyond description. He has unlimited qualities and thus unlimited names but is one. Because He is Almighty and needs no help of anyone to create, nurse and destroy the universe therefore no need to take avtar.
