Sushma: Namaste Swamiji. I would like to know if the vedas available for download or in bookshops are the original version. And is there any ancient literature that is lost during Muslim and European rule. Kindly let me know Swamiji.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Vedas are available with M/S Vijay Kumar Hassanand, Nai Sadak, Delhi-110006.
The website of M/S Vijay Kumar Hassanand is –
And knowledge about downloading may also be got from the same shop. They are original. I also paste my article in this regard-
Could Vedas too have been corrupted by wrong insertions?
Actually Manusmriti, Ramayana, Geeta and Bhagwad geeta etc, were not condemned by the arrogant they tried to add false shlokas to change the real meaning only. Whereas directly or indirectly, the arrogant tried to spread a fear regarding Vedas that Vedas are difficult/hard and must not be studied. So they did not touch the Vedas.
Secondly, when the propaganda was being made against the Vedas, many learned of Vedas were alive and could oppose but the learned were not much interested to study other holy books except Vedas, as Vedas are complete knowledge.
Thirdly, the language of the Vedas was typical for them being divine Sanskrit language and not man-made. So less than a complete Yogi is not able to make any change in Vedic eternal mantras because first mantras will have to be learnt for which Sanskrit knowledge was to be gained which was a typical job for arrogant. You see, even at present no false prophet or arrogant has tried to change the idea of Ved mantras, yet they are creating fear that Vedas are not needed to be studied. However, Maxmuller and other persons still tried to change the real meaning of Ved mantras but those people did not dare to add any Ved mantra etc.
You will see that at one place, a truth is seen in the above Manusmriti shlokas etc., and thereafter the false shlokas added therein, contradict the truth but as far as Vedas are concerned, still the truth begins right from the beginning till end. There is no contradiction. So no false mantras are added in eternal knowledge of Vedas which emanates direct from God. In India, there are so many learned Brahmins who have the knowledge of all Ved mantras by heart and any change if made, which is even impossible, being divine Sanskrit language, they will come forward against it.
Vedas, are still originated in the heart of a Yogi as I have already stated giving the proof of Kapil muni’s Sankhya sutras 5/48 to 51 and Atharvaveda mantra 4/30/3 wherein it is clearly stated that the mantras are now also originated in the heart of a Ashtang yogi but on the contrary, Manusmriti or any other granth written by Rishi is never originated in the heart of a yogi or anybody else. So in the said holy granths comparison of false or true shlokas is mostly not possible.
As you know, at the time of final destruction of universe, all the granths including the true granths will be no more and the printed copies of the Vedas will also be destroyed. But as per the rules of the God vide Yajurveda 31/7 and Shwetashwataropnishad 6/8 eternal knowledge of the Vedas will automatically be originated in the heart of four rishis.
Handwritten Vedic literature written by ancient Rishis along with Vedas was burnt in Nalanda and Takshila universities of Bihar under the instructions of Aurangzeb.
ABC: Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Karmanusar Jeevan mein dukh-sukh to aate hee hain. Manushya ko dhairya rakh kar har situation ka saamna karna chahiye. Meri bhi situation aisee nahi hai main aapkee koi madad kar sakoon aur 1000/- , 500/- rupees kee madad se aapka kaam nahi chalega. Isliye aap dheeraj rakhkar koi na koi mehnat karke paise kamaane ka sadhan karo aur phir jab aapke paas paise nahi hain to bank bhi aapka kya kar lega. Han! Yadi aapne kuchh mortgage kiya hai to usmein to bank ka adhikar ho jayega. Isliye agar kuchh chala bhi jaata hai aur parivar ka Jeevan bach jaaye zindagi chaltee rahe bus aisa kaam karo, Jeevan se ghabrao mat, burey din kabhi tikte nahi hain, yeh bure din bhi nikal jayeinge aur achchhey din aayeinge. Pooja –path mat karo. Sirf ek, yadi kar sakte ho to Gayatri mantra se hawan kar liya karo aur OM ka jaap kiya karo. Isse mushibatein door hoyengee. Ishwar kripa karega.
