Anonymous: Difference between spirituality and religion? Is inter religion marriage accepted?
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes Vedas accept inter religion marriage because Vedas have not made any religion. Spirituality to follow Vedas path is true because it emanates direct from God so it is eternal and everlasting. Whereas religion have been made by human being which is not everlasting but destroy at the time of final destruction.
Ashwani: पाप की परिभाषा क्या है?
Swami Ram Swarup: Jab hum eternal everlasting knowledge vedon ke gyata Guru se prapt karte hain. Sri Ram, Sri Krishna, Rishi Muniyon ityadi ki tarah Vedic shubh karam karte hain to weh pratyek karam punyawan karam hota hai, aur jab hum ved na janne ke karan jane ya anjane mein ved viruddh karam karte hain to weh pratyek karam paap wala karam hota aur hum paapi kahlate hain.

Anonymous: What does solah shringar actually means according to vedas.

Anonymous: Swami ji please put some light on ISKCON. They say that by simply chanting Hare Krishna mahamatra one can be freed from all sinful activities. Please guide.
Swami Ram Swarup: This custom is also made by human being and not by God therefore not mentioned in Vedas.
Anonymous: How can we determine a womens character? I have suffered by accepting a women who wasnt and got cheated. Swamiji please reply as you can help a lot of youth through your immense knowledge.
Swami Ram Swarup: Every character of everybody is just on daily dealing etc., if a person doesn’t know Vedas. He knows Vedas they apply Vedic knowledge to judge character but you have already judged the lady so your judgement is correct. In this connection Atharvaveda preaches several advices including that the such women should be abandoned. Atharvaveda states that lady who abuses her husband, if her husband has no fault should vanish away from house. Unchaste (ill-charactered) lady deserved to be turned out of the house.
Anonymous: Pranam Swamiji.Swamiji, aapka swasth theek hai na.It has been many years since I first wrote to you via email, I have also done many mistakes and broke aagya during these times. I heartily beg sorry.I will always remain grateful to you.Jaane anjaane mein agar meine koi galati ki hain to mujhe kshama kare Gurudev. I have faced challenges in life and I want to live my life in Vedic maarg.
May I get inspiration Gurudev. Apki deerghaayu ki kaamna karta hu.
I am fortunate that I have found You in my life. Thank You. Pranam.
Swami Ram Swarup: Dear son, my heartiest blessings to you for your long happy life. Please always follow Vedic knowledge in your life, do daily hawan as advised by God in Vedas and study Vedas.
Arvind: Namaste Guruji,
My heartfelt gratitude for your reply and for your benevolent blessings. I know it is a very personal aspect of your life but I had to ask that question in the context of your Vedic teachings that GOD does not take avatars in any form nor does he have any human form and it is not HIS job to help us mortals in any manner whatsoever.But by performing Vedic Havans and other prescribed Ashtanga Yoga practices, our Karma will get reduced and Liberation can be achieved either in this birth or next birth. That is why even great Yogis like Shri Rama or Shri Krishna had to fight their own battles using their own talents without any miracles from God..
Therefore, when such is the case, can you kindly explain how was the marking of your attendance done by the Grace of God. Because I very well remember that in that interview You had told that your CO himself told you the next day that he had seen You physically attend the parade and that your attendance was marked. The only conclusion is, somebody had taken Your Physical Form, if not God then some Yogi and had helped You out. Or in the alternate, You yourself could have manifested your physical Form by using your mystical yogic powers.
but the issue does not stop there. If some other Yogi or You yourself had used yogic powers and done it, then it could also mean that GOD can also do the same and even more, if GOD decides to help That will give justification for the Puranic Avatars, is it not?
Please don”t mind my obstinate insistence for reply on the above matter. I feel it is one of the most important aspect for understanding our Vedic dharma namely whether GOD helps deserving Yogis in any manner HE deems fit including taking Avatars.
Guruji, please pardon me if I am over stepping my limits in my Ignorance but I take your Teachings seriously and I want to know the Truth.
Thank You and Pranaams Guruji,,
Swami Ram Swarup: Dear son neither it is a miracle nor misuse of power if yogi but it is mercy by almighty God and He helps every yogi by using His unseen powers. You see, Vedas have neither written nor spoken by God but by His capability and power the knowledge of Vedas in the beginning of every creation emanates from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis. My blessings to you again.
