Anonymous: Prabhu ji aapke charno m mera shat-shat pranam. Last year i m unable to clear my one exam of graduation of 2nd year due to my mother’s illness so it became acase of compartment, so this year i gave the exam with full prepration but secured only 20 out of 158 which i had never expected . what should i do now i can’t understand.Although every year university gives a golden chance as last one but i m not sure about this time.If i doesn’t get that chance my three years will be wasted & then everything go in vain,my future ,my parents dream.Please,guruji show me the path.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. One should never be nervous in life. Instead, should try, try, try again to get success. So, please contact the university, if it may be possible to avail the chance by you. Also, please try to do daily hawan with Gayatri mantra. In the end of hawan, pray to God to give you success. You know, the obstacles of life are always destroyed by worshipping God only and simultaneously by doing hard work.
Arun: Swami ji,charan sparash ,iwant to know whether there is any way given in Vedas about how to focus on work that we are doing, and remain tension free while doing work, is there any way of improving concentration level given in Veda, I also want to know how to do work as per given in veda so that all the work is done as per instruction of God that was given in Veda. Please advice me.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, Vedas preach on every matter of universe. You see, as mentioned in Rigveda Mandal 10, the human body has been blessed by God to us to fulfill two purposes-
(i) to face the result of previous lives’ pious deeds and sins in the shape of happiness and sorrows.
(ii) We are free to do pious deeds or sins but it has been clearly preached in Vedas that a person who follows Vedic path and does deeds according to Vedas, he would be able to destroy the previous lives’ sins and would not face the sorrows etc. thus, he would be able to get long, happy, ill free, tension- free life.
Vedas thus tell that to have effective concentration over any pious deeds and to simultaneously get success a person should listen to Vedas, do name jaap of God, practise Ashtang Yoga and hence follow Vedic path. Otherwise, he is liable to spend his life according to above Rigveda mantra.
So, to start any job or to begin every morning, a person should at least do daily hawan; both times and name jaap OM with its meaning.
