Surya P Ianala: Namaskar, Swami Jee! Same thought continues- Prophets, God does not need prophets to preach, so it is very clear now as per Vedas, there is nothing like a follower of GOD in human flesh. You said, If GOD had a desire to preach to people, since he has unlimited power, he can preach his teachings directly to one and everyone, but he does this to only four unsexual rishis, every time the universe is created and destroyed.

Surya P Ianala: Namaskar, Swami Jee! Same thought continues- Prophets, God does not need prophets to preach, so it is very clear now as per Vedas, there is nothing like a follower of GOD in human flesh. You said, If GOD had a desire to preach to people, since he has unlimited power, he can preach his teachings directly to one and everyone, but he does this to only four unsexual rishis, every time the universe is created and destroyed. I agree, but let us discuss the point,” If GOD had desire he would have taught everyone at the same time”, OK this is possible only when everyone or every soul is 100% pure like four unsexual rishis, but the reality is every soul is loaded with bad Karma and the soul is not pure enough to receive the instructions of the GOD directly, so GOD having or not having any desire to preach or to have any human as his prophet does not make any sense, because as per Veda, if I have understood it well, these are instructions which are available as eternal knowledge, it is up to the Human to prepare himself by Sadhana so that he can acquire that eternal knowledge from some guru or directly also, as you have said, “Ved apne aap mann mein prakat hote hain”, and for this a Guru of high stature is required, I agree. Now, let us discuss Prophet. What does a prophet do, preach, direct a misguided community or people towards a proper direction, like Mohammad, or Jesus, or Sai Baba, Guru Nanak, Buddha, Jain, Gandhi, Sivananda guru or many more have done, and these are at a very high level. And at a very mundane level, in a day to day life, every human being plays this role of a prophet, to a son, daughter, grandchild, sister, brother, wife, father, mother, friend, colleague, and also to a stranger, and everyone of these people are in a way a prophet for the other person who receives the direction, and that direction could be for life, money making, spiritual sadhana, love, etc. and if that person elevates himself to higher level, such a person is called by the people who follow him or her, as Prophet, the best example, for all those people who ask you questions to find an valid answer so that they can bring that change in their life, you are a Prophet for all of them, so here, Is GOD telling you to do this service?, which is free of cost and is full with knowledge and love, who is behind you to bring you to such a position so that people around you kneel in front you with respect, love and devotion, is it not the GOD himself, who happens to reside in your heart, again is it not this GOD who is omnipresent taking the role of a prophet called Swami Ramswaroop Ji, to answer millions of questions of millions of people who otherwise lack the purity of the soul which, Swami Ramswaroop has achieved, and this purity makes easy for the GOD who is omnipresent to manifest himself through swami Ramswaroop ji, to preach, Eternal knowledge of Vedas, etc. GOD does have unlimited power to give the knowledge to one and everyone , but each and every person does not have the purity of soul to receive it, simple example, the radio waves of various channels are already available in the atmosphere, but only people with functional radios receive the signal, others do not, the knowledge from GOD is exactly like this, the knowledge is all out there, it is up to the human to bring himself to such a level ,where he or she can connect with that divinity and receive the knowledge, and once such a human receives
that precious eternal knowledge, he finds himself much obliged to preach it to the fellow humans, and this has nothing to do if GOD wants it or not, it is the human heart which can not stop preaching, when he or she reaches that level, OK here there many different people, few do for money, few for popularity, few for self satisfaction, few for social service, few think it is their duty, so who is behind all these thoughts, who is the thought giver to this thinker, is it not the GOD who gives us everything in the form of nature, then why it cannot be GOD who wants to give?
Swami Ramswarup: The knowledge of the four Vedas is applicable to the entire universe after getting the same by the said first four Rishis of non-sexual creation and its result is seen in the shape of several spiritual minded Kings like Manu, Dashrath, Sri Ram, Sri Krishna etc., and Rishi-Munis like Vyas muniji, Atri Rishi, Vashishth Muni, Kapil Muni i.e., millions of Rishis who became the purest and got salvation only after getting the Vedic knowledge traditionally. So it does not mean that God gives knowledge only to purest soul but the system of creation which is eternal and unchangeable that God gives only Vedic knowledge to non-sexual creation once and thereafter the Rishi-munis have been giving the Vedic knowledge to the public to make them the purest persons in the shape of Rishi-munis, etc.

The said system is eternal, automatic and unchangeable and contains no question of desire please. God gives the knowledge and inspires in the Vedas to spread it in the public. As you know, God helps those who help themselves so those who try to gain knowledge from acharya, God helps them and those who do not desire, God does not help them. Deeds are ours whether Good or bad but result is awarded by God.

So God tells about the Vedic knowledge and not about the other preach please. The preach away from Vedas is not recommended by God in the Vedas. So, please try to read four Vedas. For example Gandhiji taught to remember Ram name but Vedas do not. Vedas tell about OM. However, it is upto the person as to which path he adopts. He is always free to adopt any path.

Yes, please. God tells in the Vedas-Krinnvantam Vishwam Aryam i.e., try to make the whole world Arya and the definition of Arya is “Aryaha Ishwar Putraha” i.e., Arya is the son of God. The other definition of Arya is who has controlled his five senses, five perceptions and mind, who is always kind to every body, who always speaks truth, Who is God fearing and has known the reality of God by studying Vedas and doing Ashtang Yoga Practice. Here it shall not be out of place to mention that every person is son of God. But difference is to be noted between corruption and gentleness. We should try to make every person gentle.

God is everywhere and resides in every heart but He is not experienced until a person does true worship etc. For example –If we study that mango is sweet and has several good qualities then it will not be of any use until we consume the mango and gets its experience. So is the case of Almighty God that if we study, listen etc., about the divine qualities of God being omnipresent, almighty etc. It will be of no use until we realise God following the eternal path. Vedas say that He who experiences God, always becomes away from all types of sorrows whereas we see that the person who talk about the God and even worships the God are not away from corruption , dishonesty, injustice , fraud etc and are indulged in tension, sickness, sorrows , anger, greed, pride, ego, etc.

Knowledge is given to like the illusion by which the pure soul is observed. So it is not a matter whether a person has purity or impurity. All are eligible to listen the Vedic knowledge and worship, etc.

Yes, the people who are interested to receive the radio waves and simultaneously to listen the program switch it on and not others. So here the question arises too become the aspirant or to become deserving first. That is why, in the whole world, every one is not a God fearing man.

It is our own thought behind such activities mentioned by you and not God. God inspires only in Vedas, please.

Harish Arya: How the camphor is used in celibacy? Is it not harmful to normal functions?
Swami Ramswarup: Camphor is not used in celibacy please.

Lalita: Please tell me whether I have mool dosh? How will be living my future life, health,career & marriage?
Swami Ramswarup: Mool dosh , kaal sarp dosh, manglik, pitri dosh etc., are not mentioned in Vedas please. Hence, no need to be afraid of them. Please, do your pious deeds fearlessly.

Prem K. Sachdeva: Swamiji,Sadar Pranam, How we can prepare ourself for meditation? What are steps during the entire meditation process? Being follower of Vedas I am at the same wavelength to perceive your guidance.
Swami Ramswarup: As mentioned in Vedas the aspirant as mentioned by you should make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and yoga philosophy. The acharya guides him because it is the fundamental law of nature that knowledge is only gained when it is given by someone. I appreciate your views heartily and I bless you to achieve success in the matter. You are also advised to read two of my books:
(1) Patanjal Yog Darshan (part I and II) Comments (with Hindi translation)
(2) Vedic Satsang Sangrah
It will give you enough knowledge. Books can be sent on receipt of postal address if you desire.

Vinod: I have a problem in my kundli.
Swami Ramswarup: The description of such kundli is not mentioned by God in the Vedas. So, one should not fear for the same. Everybody must do the real worship of God. You are also advised to chant Gayatri mantra daily and do hawan with Gayatri mantra. This worship of Almighty God will give you inspiration, strength and blessings.

Rashmi: How to keep Sunday fast? Kindly guide me. Say somthing about the importance of Sunday fast too.
Swami Ramswarup: Vedas do not tell about any kind of fast relating to spiritualism please. However, for the betterment of health and to give rest to digestive system one can observe fast for a day, once a month or as he likes. Fast must be broken by taking fresh juice, fruits or lime water and then one should take very light meal.

Rajeshwari Pandya: I want mantra of “Jatvedse”. It is written in the book related to Nakshatra. Mine is Vishakha Nakshtra. Some one has told me that the above mentioned mantra is from Rigved. I do not know the same. Please help me.
Swami Ramswarup: Yes, the word “Jat Vedse” has been mentioned in Vedas. However, the meaning of a word differs when is used in other mantras . For example Agni when used in Rigveda Mantra 1/1/1 then mostly its meaning is omnipresent God. But in some other mantras, its meaning becomes fire.

Similarly, the meaning of “Jatvedaha” are several, like God, learned Acharya of Vedas etc. So please quote the correct Ved mantra number to enable me to give correct answer.

In Yajurveda mantra 3/2 the meaning of word “Jaatvedse” i.e., Jaatvedaha is fire wherein ghee and other samigri are offered while performing agnihotra/yajyen.

Anup:Why do people commit suicide? What happens to them/their soul after death? Can we bring them back again?
Swami Ramswarup: Suicide occurs in respect of those who indulge in illusion. Due to illusion, they are demoralised, lose patience. When the creation starts then at the beginning of every creation, God gives the knowledge of four Vedas to Rishis/human beings, to become learned by destroying the illusion. But those who due to one or the other reason, do not listen Vedas, they become unable to understand the motto of the human life and therefore the illusion effects them. As a result, they lose heart and commit suicide which is the greatest sin of human life. They even do not understand that due to their said act of sin, they will have to face more and more sorrows in the next birth. Even they are devoid of best human body which is meant to achieve salvation while doing all moral duties under the guidance of learned acharya of Vedic philosophy.

Pankaj: What to do with rakh (ashes) after doing havan?
Swami Ramswarup: Burnt material must be thrown in roots of plants or trees or in flowing river.

Harish Arya: Should a person be sanyasi or grahasthi?
Swami Ramswarup: At the age of seventy-five years sanyas is necessary as mentioned in Vedas. However, a real ascetic can take sanyas at any age. But it is a bad luck that due to lack of study of Vedas, people are not interested to take sanyas even after crossing seventy-five years of age.

Harish Arya: Why do we give fire to dead body?
Swami Ramswarup: Chapter thirty-nine of Yajurveda states to give fire to dead body so that the bacteria do not harm the living beings and thus to burn the body becomes a pious deed for those who help to burn the same. Of course, we have to obey the Vedas i.e., orders of Almighty God.

Sushma: I have arthritis in hand, leg, please help.
Swami Ramswarup: First of all, I would advise you to seek medical opinion from ortho-paedician. Secondly some teachings of Yoga Philosophy may also help but it must be learnt in person from an experienced Yoga teacher locally since I am away and I can’t teach you.

Hananim: __________
Swami Ramswarup: Yes, the queries are infinite in the life, please. We have to control the unnecessary desires to become happy. However, your query has not been received.

Anand Sharma: Brahm dosh kya hota he aur ese door karne ke upay kya he
Swami Ramswarup: There are two meanings of Brahma- first meaning is Ved mantras which is also called shabda Brahma and second meaning is Almighty God which is also called Par Brahma. In Shanti parv of Mahabharat , Bheeshma states to Yudhishthir that Oh Yudhishthir! Who listens Vedas from learned acharya and gets perfection in Shabda Brahma, then only he realises Par Brahma i.e., Almighty God.

So Brahma dosh is not to listen the Vedas from learned acharya of Vedas and not to obey the preach mentioned therein. Another Brahma dosh is to speak against the Vedas and learned acharya of Vedas.

Actually, at the beginning of creation of every universe, the knowledge of four Vedas emanates from God and originates in the heart of four Rishis. The said knowledge of Vedas is given by God for human beings to make their lives happy and to get salvation. For such purpose, God gives human body to us. But mostly human beings have failed to follow the order of Almighty God to listen Vedas and to do Yajyen and hence Brahma dosh.

Definitely, Brahma dosh is overcome by studying and following Vedic knowledge as stated above. All above knowledge is based an eternal philosophy of Vedas.

Now several pandits etc., have made their own ways and created Brahma dosh at their own. So , it depends on a person whether he obeys Almighty God or Pandits, etc.

Gisele Beaupre: Dear Swami Ramswarup, what authors did you use to study the vedas? Did you use books or did your teacher have them all memorized? Do you have a list of the best verses? You are right that some teachers sublty do not encourage their students to study the Vedas, which is somewhat curious but at the same time I can understand due to the sheer volume of verses that seems to be very excessive and a bit tiring…for example… In Swami Shyam’s interpretation of Ch 2, V 42 – 46 B. Gita… ” V 42-44: Arjun, you should not follow the knowledge taught by those who, full of duality are devoted to the words of the Vedas, preach that the purpose of man’s life is to gain heaven. These unwise ones utter flowery speeches recommending all kinds of rituals for the attainment of pleasure and power in this world. Since their minds are carried away by the ideas of pleasure and power, they cannot attain the pure intellect which can be
tuned-in to the Self. If you are to establish your intellect in your true Self, you must follow what I say. V45: …The subject matter of the scriptures, or Vedas, creates in the mind dualistic impressions which contain the ideas of either of loss and gain, or pleasure and pain. These impressions are the result of actions performed in the light of doership, which is always mental and is always based on the ego-mechanism. The ego, or “I”, is the product of the three gunas. Since the three gunas never allow any man’s mind to be free from the ignorance of his own true Self, one must transcend this field of the gunas and become established in pure, eternal existence, the state of freedom in which duality can never exist. Once establsihed in Pure Consciousness, you are Pure Consciousness. The nature of that “You” will not then be doubtful or forgetful, dualities belonging to the ordinary “you” which is man’s individual consciousness . You will be your real Self, forever free from all struggles and all ideas of acquiring and preserving possessions. You will be the Pure Self which alone perceives the source of thought, action and the results of action are one. That source alone is completely free from the interruptions which are the ideas and considerations recorded in the Vedas, for the Vedas are based on mental consciousness, which is a product of the three gunas. Transcending the considerations of your own mind, or of any mind, you will attain freedom from the influence of the three gunas. You will be Aatmaawaan, that perfectly independent Consiousness, the name of which is Self.

I will have to reread all those passages again from your books, and make a list of the actual verses you quote so I can look them up and consider the knowledge etc.. (Q&A’s)
(I know that this knowledge is important because when I came upon the part in your book about the British burning the Vedas and I spontaneously erupted in tears…and I am not normally an emotional person! I was shocked myself at this emotional reaction!) Anyway that is more than enough from me today, Thanks!
Swami Ramswarup: My author is Almighty God, please because the knowledge of Vedas emanates from Almighty God. However, Vedas have not been written by any author i.e., neither God nor Rishis, saints , man /woman etc. However, mostly I have read the best description of Ved mantras by Swami Dayanand Saraswati Ji. I think yogeshwar Sri Krishna has not said in his original shlokas of bhagwad geeta to go against the Vedas because to go against Vedas is itself the greatest sin in the universe say Vedas, please. In this connection one should study the 12th kand of Atharvaveda. I can clarify the situation if you are able to send the comments of Swami Shyam as mentioned by you. Manusmriti states “NASTIKAHA VED NINDAKAHA” i.e., who insults the Vedas is atheist even if he worships God. I have also written detailed comments on Bhagwad Geeta shloka upto six chapters. The description is totally based on ved mantras. Book contains 739 pages worth Rs/. 400 excluding postal charges and the description of whole chapter 2 of Bhagwad Geeta includes therein.

But my description which is totally based on Vedas differs from several present writers please. The main problem is this that Yogeshwar Sri Krishna learnt Vedas with Sudama from Sandeeepan Rishi. Then only he preached Arjun the Vedic knowledge only to enable Arjun to fight the religious war. So, the description of the shlokas of Bhagwad Geeta must be written by those who have learnt Vedas from learned acharya of Vedas as Sri Krishna Maharaj did. It is said that the description is being mostly done by those who have never studied Ved mantras from an acharya traditionally.

The views mentioned by you do not tally with the shloka 45 of Bhagwad Geeta told by Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj who was a philosopher of Vedas and Ashtang yoga.

Naturally the views of those who are not philosopher of Vedas and yoga knowledge will differ from Sri Krishna Maharaj . Such person is free to say anything about Bhagwad Geeta and other granths being their own concept.

As mentioned about the three gunas by you the said gunas are never known until a person studied four Vedas please. Sri Krishna maharaj was a philosopher of Vedas. When a person comments on 45th shloka of chapter 2, he must keep the views of chapter 3 and 6 of Bhagwad Geeta also, which are telling about Ved mantras. Actually, Bhagwad Geeta tells about the study of four Vedas ,which is known by learned of Vedas only.

Now I tell you, if Sri Krishna Maharaj wants to tell about three gunas in shloka 45 of chapter 2, then how he will tell about the entire knowledge of four Vedas wherein the details of three gunas are mentioned. In 45 shloka, there is little knowledge about three gunas,. The immense knowledge of three gunas is mentioned in all four Vedas. The person who is telling only about shloka 2/45 can never know the idea of Yogeshwar sri Krishna maharaj that what he wants to explain about three gunas.

Pure consciousness was originated in the shape of Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj, Sri ram, Vyas Muni, Guru Vasishth and unlimited several ancient Rishis and other Rajrishis. The pure consciousness has also originated in several learned acharyas of Vedas and Yoga Philosophy. One should make personal contact with them to know about real knowledge of Bhagwad Geeta and not with those who have never learnt Vedas and have never practiced Ashtang Yoga Philosophy as practiced by Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj. So one must please note that whether he is preaching based on study of Vedas and practise of Ashtang Yoga Philosophy or mere bookish knowledge. For example- Sri Krishna Maharaj did not study Bhagwad Geeta, he studied Vedas. So, those who want to study Bhagwad Geeta must first study Vedas.

Ayush: Was Anand Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s appearance already predicted in the Vedas? I have heard that it has been indirectly predicted in Bhagvat Purana and also in Atharva Veda and in many other places like Chaitanya Upaniasad. So sir please do clarify it whether its true or has been framed by some of his followers Awaiting your reply
Swami Ramswarup: No please. Vedas never tell any story, history or proper noun. It tells about knowledge, form of deeds and worship including several subjects like creation etc i.e., Vedas are eternal knowledge before the birth of Chaitanya mahaprabhu also. So name of Chaitanya mahaprabhu has never been written in Atharvaveda or any Veda please.

Manish Shastriji: Thanks for your reply. could you please send me the Yajyen karma- Sarvashreshth Ishwar Pooja book which you mentioned in the last answer. We have already started performing daily yagya at my home.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you for a long, happy life. God as well I am also pleased to listen that you have started doing daily hawan at your home which is the best pious deed of the universe as mentioned in Yajurveda mantra 1/1 and Yasjk Muji in his Shatpath Brahmin Granth. The book is being sent to you, please.

Gisele Beaupre: What is Soma?
Swami Ramswarup: The word ‘Som’ has been defined in Vedas as “divine pleasure” experienced by a yogi when he realizes God in the Dharam-megh Samadhi. Dharam megh Samadhi is attained after deep study of Vedas and hard practice of Ashtang yoga philosophy doing holy Yajyen, regular contact with learned acharya of Vedas. It is sad that due to lack of study of Vedas, the meaning of pious word “Som” has been defined as intoxicating drink as one’s own discretion. Also the meaning of Som is green vegetation. Som is also the name of Almighty God and we offer aahuti in Yajyen reciting “Om Somaye Swaha” for God. The literal meaning of Som at this juncture is “Form of divine pleasure”. Present Vedantism is totally against Vedas please. In this connection, I will advise you to read my books Question Answers on Vedanta & Eternal Vedas’ Philosophy.

Pankaj: Namaskar one more question that is that if person born without mind (mota dimag jo kuch sochney samajhney key layak nahin hai ) would you please define woh karm kaise karega?
Swami Ramswarup: The present human life is meant to face the result of previous deeds which are called “Praarabdh karmas” as well as to do present deeds which are called “Kriyamann karmas”. The weak mind is due to previous lives’ deeds (Prarabdh karmas) but the present pious deeds like study of Vedas from an acharya, practice of yoga philosophy, Yajyen, name jaap, etc., kills the prarabdh and the weak mind can be converted into brilliant one.

Sanjay: I ask you about Ramayan and other Puran, Vedas that time manav was very developed according to Ramayan so asking you why they are not giving a specific date of Ramayan if they mention the date in Ramayankal. Why that is not proof by any guru, swami and astrologers?
Swami Ramswarup: Valmiki Ramayan was written about 1 crore, 81 lakh, 49 thousand years ago. In samvat 1631 Tulsiji started writing Ramayan and in samvat 1633 it was completed.

K D Gupta: Swamiji pranam Gita shloka 9/15 states that the atma has feelings. We also say that physical sufferings are not felt by atma. How is it possible?
Swami Ramswarup: Physical sufferings are always felt by Atma (soul) please. The soul has been provided with human body or living body to face the result of previous lives’ deeds-good or bad in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively. Soul is alive matter and that is why, soul feels whereas body is non-alive matter and can’t feel.

Raj Kumar: How to get rid of Piturdosha and what it is?
Swami Ramswarup: This subject is not mentioned in Vedas please. Yajurveda mantra 7/48 states that we are free to do pious deeds or sin but result is always awarded by God. And we have to face the result in the shape of happiness or sorrows respectively. However, pitr means alive, in Vedas there are five alive devs, i.e., mother, father, atithi, acharya and God. We have to serve the first four and must worship one formless God only, whose description exists in four Vedas. He is almighty, omnipresent, creates, nurses and destroys the universe.

Sanjay Mudgal: Om, I would like to know about Mantra “hon joon sah” is this a complete mantra in itself. from where I can have full information of this mantra?
Swami Ramswarup: The mantra quoted by you is not a Vedic mantra please but is tantric mantra. Vedas do not accept tantrism, please.

Veeresh: How yoga can change the life of students in daily life? How can it help them?
Swami Ramswarup: Practice of yoga philosophy increases memory to a great extent and gives mental as well physical strength. It gives long, happy life. The hard working continuously for long hours gives no exertion, it keeps the practiser away from all diseases and thus yoga philosophy helps the student to make him brilliant.

Nishant: What do we mean by Atithi Devo Bhava exactly as per our Vedic sanskruti? Thanks.
Swami Ramswarup: In Vedas, there are five alive Devas- Matri devo Bhava, Pitri Devo Bhav, Atithi devo bhav, Acharya Devo Bhava and the fifth dev is Almighty God who is actually called “Mahadev” in Vedas. Dev means he who gives us something. Mother gives birth, father nurses that is, earns money for family’s sustenance, atithi means he who knows at least one Ved. Acharya means in whose life, the entire Vedic preach is in action. So, atithi when will visit anyone, will give the knowledge of Veda (at least one Veda) and we must respect him and serve him with food, bedding. Atithi can’t reside in any family’s house for more than one day.

Navin Chandra: I find your answers very helpful. Please explain which part of the body does the soul reside. If it is the heart, then where does soul go during heart operation when at times the heart is taken out of the body during heart operation and then placed back in the body?
Swami Ramswarup: While awake, soul resides in left eye, while in stage of experiencing dreams, it is in throat and while taking sound sleep, it is in heart. You know, at the time of heart operation, several veins etc., still remain in the heart itself then why not soul which can never be touched by any weapons, blood, fire, water etc.

Harish Chander: What do you mean by God? Who is nastik and who is astik?
Swami Ramswarup: He who creates, nurses and destroys the universe is called Almighty God. He who insults the Vedas, he is nastik and who listens Vedas from any acharya and follows the teachings thereof is astik.

Rajwant: Can you tell me when did Guru Nanak yug start?
Swami Ramswarup: About 500 years ago, please.

Dr. Janak Mehta: I am convinced we are here on this mother planet to fulfill a project and the progress of our soul. How do I know why am I here in this birth? Who is my Guru? When and how shall I get rid off material life?
Swami Ramswarup: We are here to reach our goal that is to get salvation while discharging all our moral duties according to Vedas. Everybody can know the reason of being here on this earth by listening/studying Vedas from a learned acharya of Vedas, please. First guru of four Rishis at the time of this non-sexual creation is almighty God Himself and thereafter Rishi-munis have been our gurus, We must go to such Rishis-acharay to realize the truth. It is upto you that while listening Vedas, doing hard practice of ashtang yoga, doing Yajyen and name jaap you become ascetic.

Nilesh B. Vaidya: Is Shabri Vidya exists today along with the power to the Shabri Mantras?
Swami Ramswarup: No, please. But anybody by doing pious deeds like Shabri can become Shabri, please.

Jaywant:Dear Sir, Namaskar I have following questions in my mind till date unable to find the answer . Hope you will resolve the same.
1. Can one see God? Would you help me in seeing God?
2. How and Why world was created?
3. Is it wrong to worship different deities?
4. In the present schedule it is difficult to fix one time for meditation in such cases what is the solution. What are the rules of meditation? Awaiting your reply.
Swami Ramswarup: (1) Yes, please. God can be realized and actually the motto of human life is to realize the God. Yes, any acharya who is philosopher of Vedas and ashtang yoga philosophy can be contacted for the same.

(2) Creation is automatic, please. Please read the article on Creation.

(3) ACCORDING TO VEDAS, YES IT IS WRONG because Vedas state to worship only one, eternal God who is Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient, formless and who creates, nurses and destroys the universe.

(4) There is no “impossible” word in the human life please. Where there is a will there is way but most important thing is this that which subject is given priority by a person. However, as per Vedas, the priority is spiritualism. So while discharging all moral duties, one should worship God otherwise he will have to face the consequences of his deeds, say Vedas.

Irfan: What is Swar Yoga?
Swami Ramswarup: Swar are Sanskrit alphabets like A, aa, e, ee, u, uu etc. Swar also means musical notes i.e., Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni, Sa. Please intimate which Swar yoga has been quoted by you.

Arpita: I have been suggested many pujas by pandits. These include 1) Ganpati Puja 2) Maa Gauri Puja 3) Grha puja for house 4) Puja for our ancestors. 5) And Havan – I specially asked him here to perform havan with Gayari Mantra as I really believe in it. Please confirm to me if the above is proper thing to do.
Swami Ramswarup: First four pujas mentioned by you are not in the Vedas so as per Vedas, the same are not required. However, the decision to do the same lies with you, please. As regards havan/Yajyen, it must be performed properly with ved mantras for which help from an Arya Samaji purohit must be taken. Arya Samaj purohit will perform it properly with Ved mantras. Yes, the Gayatri anushthan will also serve the purpose if you yourself perform the havan with Gayatri mantra for 1, 2 or 3 days, both times. After havan, all must sit in siddhasan and chant the holy name of God- Om.

Actually due to lack of knowledge of Vedas, to live in a united family, has become difficult. Knowledge of Vedas unites otherwise people drift apart. That is why, Rigveda mantra states :”Samgachchadhvam samvaddhavam” that is, we all must get progress together, live together and our pious thoughts must be same. I think all efforts to unite the family will go in vain now because everybody wants freedom but does not want to control senses, perceptions and mind, say Vedas.

N K: How to prevent a person from using bad language?
Swami Ramswarup: Rigveda says “Vachavadami madhumat” i.e., one prays to God that Oh God! I speak sweetly. Then mantra says “Bhooyasam Madhusam Drishaha” that is I must be so sweet like honey. You see, if honey is kept open in a pot, several flies would stick to it. Similarly, a man/woman who speaks sweetly, then others would like to be in his company more and more. Atharvaveda strictly preaches the law of God that he who abuses or uses rough language etc., it actually effects the orator himself and not to those to whom it was directed. So, due to lack of knowledge of Vedas, one makes his future dark by using abusive, insulting language. Knowledge only makes man wise. Vedas contain unlimited knowledge which people have not been attaining and hence the problems. A person himself thus destroys himself. Your cooperation with the person and loving talk to him will sure make him wise. You must never lose patience. Then you will get success.

Preeti: First of all, I would like your blessings on me and on my family. I really want to attain God’s darshan, could you please tell me more specifically about the divine light inside us and the sounds we hear. when I try to meditate I try to look for these things but it is always blank. How shall I concentrate hard? How can I improve my studies and be more positive?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you for a long, happy life. Actually, it depends on the worship of an aspirant who wants to realize God and wants to see divine light and voice. I have been teaching Vedas and performance of Yajyen. I also teach to do name jaap of Almighty, formless God and practice of ashtang yoga philosophy. I now have obtained the result thereof that my several disciples male and female have been seeing divine light and hearing divine sounds within them and not outside. But see that I have taught them the said path totally based on Vedas and they have been doing practice thereof for the last 20, 25-30 years. Recently, one of my disciples has experienced the divine light etc., and has been interviewed by local TV channels. She has been appreciated a lot since it is a surprising case. So, the question is this that what type of worship we have been doing and from whom we have been inspired and whether the aspirant is really interested to do tapasya as quoted above. A student must do hard study and must take care of his health. You must also do daily havan with Gayatri mantra with its meaning. Really, it will help you.

Smitty: I am trying to interview someone for a class I am taking. Would you let me ask you questions? If yes, below are my questions Where do you currently live State or Country? What is your purpose or goal in life? Do you act a certain way based on an afterlife? Where you raised in your religion or were you a convert? The Hindu believe discusses reincarnation. Do you believe in this? Are you a certain caste? Is there a temple locally that you can go to pray and meditate? I appreciate any assistance you can give me for the interview. I thank you very much for your time.
Swami Ramswarup: I live in India. Purpose of every human-being is to realise God. I have been blessed by God and now my purpose of life is to spread the knowledge of Vedas, yajyen and yoga philosophy all over the country to promote international brotherhood which has been preached by God in Vedas.

We must do pious deeds which always help to give us pleasure here in present life as well as after this life. So the importance is to be given for present pious deeds which I have been giving.

I am not a convert, please. I am Indian Hindu by birth. My ancestors were also Hindus.
Rebirth is not a matter of belief. Actually, it is a fact which one must find in Vedas and then trust. However reincarnation i.e., avtar of God is quite impossible. In this regard, my article on avtarwad is available on www.vedmandir.com.

Caste system although is not in Vedas please. Yet, I am a Brahmin by caste. No, please. I respect temples but I have never visited temples for worship because God never takes avtar. Secondly, God is formless. Yajurveda mantra 32/3 states that God can’t be measured that is there is no statue of formless, Almighty God. Vedas tell like Yajurveda mantra 40/1 that God is omnipresent, omniscient. So I need not to go to temples, please.
I have studied Vedas, shastras, upnishads, Geeta and number of holy granths, done name jaap and hard practice of ashtang yoga mentioned in Vedas.

Anonymous: Guruji namaste. I have heard that some disciple put a question to his guru maharaj about creation. Disciple told guruji that why the God created universe? Guruji replied lovingly to the disciple i.e.,. God was alone at the beginning of creation. Why He desired that He should be loved by someone? Hence He parted Himself into pieces converting the same as souls and hence creation?
Swami Ramswarup: Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 and other Vedas state that after final destruction of universe as usual the three matters remain existent- Almighty God, Prakriti and souls. Souls who are unlimited in number and prakriti i.e., Raj, Tam and satva gunnas (qualities) take shelter in God. So God never remains alone.

Secondly, as the air can’t be parted, so the God cannot be broken into pieces that is why, in Vedas, the name of God is Aditya. Aditya means He who cannot be broken into pieces.

Yajurveda mantra 40/8 states that God is Avrannam i.e., can’t be pierced nor hole can be made into Him. So if we say that soul is the separated part of God, it would be totally against the fundamental law of Vedas.

Moreover, God has no desire. So He has no desire that people must love Him. However, God has preached in Vedas to love every living being and to love and worship God. But the said preach is automatic. Shwetashwaropnishad shloka 6/8 in this connection states, “Swabhaviki Gyan bal Kriya Cha” i.e., knowledge, power and deeds of God are automatic/natural. It means God does not have the desire but the said knowledge, deeds and power act at a stipulated time automatically. Even God has no desire to create the universe and God does not create universe, say Vedas and Aiteryopnishad. The said eternal knowledge of Vedas says that creation, nursing, and destruction and again creation is automatic. In this connection, Upnishad mentions a word “Eekshan” and not desire.

Ajit Chepe: Is there mention or recommendation of NON VEG food in Vedas/kuran?
Swami Ramswarup: Vegetarians and non-vegetarians are two categories. Accordingly the construction of body i.e., teeth, small intestine and large intestine, and digestive system has been made by God.

Human beings come in vegetarian category. Our teeth and digestive system always differ from cat, dog, lion etc. Some animals like cow, buffalo, goat, elephant etc., also come in Vegetarian category. We take water by sipping but the animals who are non-vegetarian i.e., meat eater they do not sip but lick. Whatever we eat, that food develops our mind and body and creates natural behaviour. For example if we take a cub who is newly born and nurse him by giving milk and thereafter vegetarian food only and on the other hand to another cub we provide him meat, then when they will be younger their habit will differ. The cub taking vegetarian food will be as violent as the cub who took meat.

Now medical science also says that the energy in vegetarian food is more than that in non-vegetarian food. Vegetarian food gives long and ill free life. Vegetarian elephant is stronger than non-vegetarian lion.

Nobody can take meat until one gives violence to animals or birds etc., which is a sin. Our stomach becomes a graveyard where we gather meat by eating. As regards life in vegetarians it does not harm to them while plucking from plants etc. because every vegetarian plant has short life and is meant to give food to the human life. But to us meat is not entitled. Science has recently told that non-vegetarians are more susceptible to cancer disease and teeth degeneration as compared to vegetarians.

Non-vegetarian food is prohibited as per Vedas, shastras, Upnishads and all the ancient holy books. In vegetarian food an ocean of calories and vitamins is available by the mercy of God. Please check from a dietician about the same. Because it is lengthy one and I cannot explain here. For example dal, is full of proteins, soybean has more protein than any non-vegetarian food, which has ability to inhibit cancer also where as non-vegetarian does not. Green vegetables like palak, methi, etc., are the richest source of iron and vitamin A. So is the case of milk, curd, rice, fruit, etc., -etc.

Ajit Chepe:Are Muslim, Hindus and people of all faith doing correct by eating animal flesh?
Swami Ramswarup: Vedas are eternal knowledge which emanates direct from almighty God. In this creation, the knowledge emanated about one Arab, ninety –seven crore, eight lakh, fifty three thousand years ago. You see at that time, no sects existed. Secondly, the knowledge of almighty God is applicable to entire universe as air, water etc., which are universally beneficial to all. In Vedas, non-vegetarian is strictly prohibited.

Ajit Chepe: Nowadays EGG is also promoted as VEG food, do you agree with this?
Swami Ramswarup: No, please. Because egg grows when soul enters in it, otherwise growth and eggs remaining flesh is not possible.

Ajit Chepe: Is alcohol and tobacco allowed as per Vedas?
Swami Ramswarup: No, please. Alcoholism and all addictions are strictly prohibited. I have written two books –(1) Brahamcharya – Ek Dukh Nivarak Manni (in Hindi) and (2) protect the holy cow-say Vedas ( in English) worth Rs, 100/- and Rs. 40/- respectively. If you so desire, books can be sent to you on receipt of your postal address.

Ajit Chepe: IndiaTV- a news channel showed a video of Shirdi Sai Baba appearing from a tree and various accounts of his appearnce were discussed. Sri Sai Baba is having huge following due to him omnipresence. Ramparamkrishna hans also got the darshan of maa kali. There may be n number of saints in India who must have seen god. Swamiji, have you ever got the opportunity to see/feel the Almighty?
Swami Ramswarup: In this connection, I can only say that God is never seen by the naked eyes as mentioned in four Vedas, six shastras, upnishads and Bhagwad Geeta etc.

Ajit Chepe: What is the opposite of VEDAS? like dev vs demon?
Swami Ramswarup: Illusion/ignorance.

Gisele Beaupre: Is there life on other planets? What is the difference between Ishwaar and purush?
Swami Ramswarup: Yes, please, there is life in other planets. Ishwar means He who creates the universe and purush means who has all the powers and is independent to do all divine deeds for universe.

Bharat: I am really thankful to you for getting the book on brahmacharya. I do not know if i am following it completely or not but I am trying to do so. Can you please suugest me how can i control my senses deviating from the right at times. There are moments when my brain takes over my intellect and momentarily mistakes are done and it takes time to correct them.
Swami Ramswarup: Thanking you, please. It is good that you are trying to observe Brahmacharya and you know God helps those who help themselves. To control the senses one has to do practice of asan, pranayam and meditation daily. Daily study of Vedic books is also necessary please. So, you try to seek a learned acharya locally for the same. If you so desire, Vedic books can be sent from here.

Surya P Ianala: Namaskar, Swami Jee! Same thought continues- Prophets, God does not need prophets to preach, so it is very clear now as per Vedas, there is nothing like a follower of GOD in human flesh. You said, If GOD had a desire to preach to people, since he has unlimited power, he can preach his teachings directly to one and everyone, but he does this to only four unsexual rishis, every time the universe is created and destroyed. I agree, but let us discuss the point,” If GOD had desire he would have taught everyone at the same time”, OK this is possible only when everyone or every soul is 100% pure like four unsexual rishis, but the reality is every soul is loaded with bad Karma and the soul is not pure enough to receive the instructions of the GOD directly, so GOD having or not having any desire to preach or to have any human as his prophet does not make any sense, because as per Veda, if I have understood it well, these are instructions which are available as eternal knowledge, it is up to the Human to prepare himself by Sadhana so that he can acquire that eternal knowledge from some guru or directly also, as you have said, “Ved apne aap mann mein prakat hote hain”, and for this a Guru of high stature is required, I agree, Now, let us discuss Prophet. What does a prophet do, preach, direct a misguided community or people towards a proper direction, like Mohammad, or Jesus, or Sai Baba, Guru Nanak, Buddha, Jain, Gandhi, Sivananda guru or many more have done, and these are at a very high level. And at a very mundane level, in a day to day life, every human being plays this role of a prophet, to a son, daughter, grandchild, sister, brother, wife, father, mother, friend, colleague, and also to a stranger, and everyone of these people are in a way a prophet for the other person who receives the direction, and that direction could be for life, money making, spiritual sadhana, love, etc. and if that person elevates himself to higher level, such a person is called by the people who follow him or her, as Prophet, the best example, for all those people who ask you questions to find an valid answer so that they can bring that change in their life, you are a Prophet for all of them, so here, Is GOD telling you to do this service?, which is free of cost and is full with knowledge and love, who is behind you to bring you to such a position so that people around you kneel in front you with respect, love and devotion, is it not the GOD himself, who happens to reside in your heart, again is it not this GOD who is omnipresent taking the role of a prophet called Swami Ramswarup Ji, to answer millions of questions of millions of people who otherwise lack the purity of the soul which , Swami Ramswarup has achieved, and this purity makes easy for the GOD who is omnipresent to manifest himself through Swami Ramswarup ji, to preach, Eternal knowledge of Vedas, etc. GOD does have unlimited power to give the knowledge to one and everyone, but each and every person does not have the purity of soul to receive it, simple example, the radio waves of various channels are already available in the atmosphere, but only people with functional radios receive the signal, others do not, the knowledge from GOD is exactly like this, the knowledge is all out there, it is up to the human to bring himself to such a level ,where he or she can connect with that divinity and receive the knowledge, and once such a human receives that precious eternal knowledge, he finds himself much obliged to preach it to the fellow humans, and this has nothing to do if GOD wants it or not, it is the human heart which can not stop preaching, when he or she reaches that level, OK here there many different people, few do for money, few for popularity, few for self satisfaction, few for social service, few think it is their duty, so who is behind all these thoughts, who is the thought giver to this thinker, is it not the GOD who gives us everything in the form of nature, then why it cannot be GOD who wants to give?
Swami Ramswarup: The knowledge of the four Vedas is applicable to the entire universe after getting the same by the said first four Rishis of non-sexual creation and its result is seen in the shape of several spiritual minded Kings like Manu, Dashrath, Sri Ram, Sri Krishna etc., and Rishi-Munis like Vyas muniji, Atri Rishi, Vashishth Muni, Kapil Muni i.e., millions of Rishis who became the purest and got salvation only after getting the Vedic knowledge traditionally. So it does not mean that God gives knowledge only to purest soul but the system of creation which is eternal and unchangeable that God gives only Vedic knowledge to non-sexual creation once and thereafter the Rishi-munis have been giving the Vedic knowledge to the public to make them the purest persons in the shape of Rishi-munis etc.

The said system is eternal, automatic and unchangeable and contains no question of desire please. God gives the knowledge and inspires in the Vedas to spread it in the public. As you know, God helps those who help themselves so those who try to gain knowledge from acharya, God helps them and those who do not desire, God does not help them. Deeds are ours whether Good or bad but result is awarded by God.

So God tells about the Vedic knowledge and not about the other preach please. The preach away from Vedas is not recommended by God in the Vedas. So, please try to read four Vedas. For example Gandhiji taught to remember Ram name but Vedas do not. Vedas tell about OM. However, it is upto the person as to which path he adopts. He is always free to adopt any path.

Yes, please. God tells in the Vedas-Krinnvantam Vishwam Aryam i.e., try to make the whole world Arya and the definition of Arya is “Aryaha Ishwar Putraha” i.e., Arya is the son of God. The other definition of Arya is who has controlled his five senses, five perceptions and mind, who is always kind to every body, who always speaks truth, Who is God fearing and has known the reality of God by studying Vedas and doing Ashtang Yoga Practice. Here it shall not be out of place to mention that every person is son of God. But difference is to be noted between corruption and gentleness. We should try to make every person gentle.

God is everywhere and resides in every heart but He is not experienced until a person does true worship etc. For example –If we study that mango is sweet and has several good qualities then it will not be of any use until we consume the mango and gets its experience. So is the case of Almighty God that if we study, listen etc., about the divine qualities of God being omnipresent, almighty etc. It will be of no use until we realise God following the eternal path. Vedas say that He who experiences God, always becomes away from all types of sorrows whereas we see that the person who talk about the God and even worships the God are not away from corruption , dishonesty, injustice, fraud etc and are indulged in tension, sickness, sorrows , anger, greed, pride, ego etc.

Knowledge is given to like the illusion by which the pure soul is observed. So it is not a matter whether a person has purity or impurity. All are eligible to listen the Vedic knowledge and worship, etc.

Yes, the people who are interested to receive the radio waves and simultaneously to listen the program switch it on and not others. So here the question arises too become the aspirant or to become deserving first. That is why, in the whole world, every one is not a God fearing man.

It is our own thought behind such activities mentioned by you and not God. God inspires only in Vedas, please.

Prem K. Sachdeva: How we can prepare ourself for meditation? What are steps during the entire meditation process? Being follower of Vedas I am at the same wavelength to perceive your guidance.
Swami Ramswarup: As mentioned in Vedas the aspirant as mentioned by you should make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and yoga philosophy. The acharya guides him because it is the fundamental law of nature that knowledge is only gained when it is given by someone. I appreciate your views heartily and I bless you to achieve success in the matter. You are also advised to read two of my books:
(1) Patanjal Yog Darshan (part I and II) Comments (with Hindi translation)

(2) Vedic Satsang Sangrah

It will give you enough knowledge. Books can be sent on receipt of postal address if you desire.

Sunil: If somebody doesn’t have kids then what karm have they done in the past life? What can be done to get kids?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. The result of the karmas is controlled and awarded by God Himself, please. You know, we are kept free by God to do sins or pious deeds. But the result is awarded by Him in the shape of sorrows and happiness respectively, according to the deeds. So, it is not easy to say as to which particular karmas is responsible for a person not having kids.

God has given vast knowledge also in Vedas to inspire the people to do only pious deeds, to become happy always. However in the Vedas, God has also advised to take medicines and to worship Him (God) according to Vedas and God thus fulfils the desires also. You are always advised to seek medical opinion and to take the shelter of a learned acharya who knows Vedas and yoga philosophy. His advice would be sure beneficial for you because I am away and I can not teach you from here.

K D Gupt: Swamiji pranam. Swami Shivananda introduces a word sacrifice in explaining ATMANEVEDINAM in chapter 3 of Gita. No word can be placed as Sanskrit translation in English. A simple man may misunderstand it. In Sanskrit no space is for sacrifice.
Swami Ramswarup: My dear, you know I am very much busy at present since seventy-one days long Vedanushthan of four Vedas has begun here. So I would like you to quote the shloka number of chapter three of Bhagwad Geeta where the word “ATMANEVEDINAM” has been mentioned, to enable me to give you the correct answer.

Anonymous: I am facing serious problems in life. I have nothing which in my life which even force me to dream for my future except my dedication toward God. I don’t know if we are going on the right path in my worship?
Swami Ramswarup: First of all, a man should not feel discouraged/nervous. You know, life is a struggle which we have to face happily to get success. To be a simple Bhakta of God will never serve the purpose because God helps those who help themselves. Therefore hard working, honesty, dedication, firm decision to get the target are necessary. Please try to do daily hawan with Gayatri mantra and the whole day is with you to seek the opportunity to start business and get success. I also bless you for your early success, please.

As regards worship of God, I would advice you to study my some spiritual books based on Vedas. Books can be sent on receipt of your postal address, free of cost please because you are not earning. Regular study of books will also give you mental and physical strength to face the problem and to worship God.

Deen: Dandot vandana! Swamiji, I feel very sad about the way things are going in the country. Government is doing its best to promote evils in our society. Our armed forces are treated badly. Superstitions are increasing. Hindus are getting away from their Vedic heritage. What should be our motto? How should we live our life? Should we try and dedicate ourselves to do something for our nation or should we first try and improve ourselves spiritually? As in, focus more on learning about our culture, perform Yajyen and Yogabhasy or should we try and promote Hindu cause?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you for a long, happy life. Our motto must be to attain Vedic preach first ourselves and then to spread the same, at our level best. However, in such process, the person must be independent and earning well, please. To destroy the darkness in the night, arrangement of light is necessary, similarly to drive away illusion from the country, the light i.e., wisdom is necessary.

A brave, wise person who knows Vedic culture like Sri Ram, Sri Krishna, Bheeshma etc., can end the illusion all over the country. So first of all, knowledge/wisdom i.e., progress in science, pious deeds, responsibilities, nationality and real worship of God is to be attained and then to spread the same.

To spread the above knowledge of the Vedas i.e., to make the people understand about their moral duties and to end the illusion would be the best dedication towards nation, please. In this way, we would be able to promote Hindu cause (humanity) automatically.

Viji: Please tell the history of bidhan gotra.
Swami Ramswarup: Sorry, please. This relates to caste system. In Vedas, Caste-system is not based on birth but is according to present deeds. Please also see the article/questions on caste system.

Sunil: If someone does not have kids then it is the result of what karm of the past life? What should one do to have kids?
Swami Ramswarup: The philosophy of all karmas (deeds) is controlled by Almighty God and the deeds are done by us but the result is awarded by God. So it is not possible to state that what type of deeds were done with the result the person does not have kids. However, medical advices also at present are available and they tell the reason of not having kids. Hard tapasya of Ashtang yoga, performing of Yajyen may burn the previous bad deeds and a person can get the kid but it is my experience that at this juncture, no one can do hard tapasya as mentioned in Vedas. So satisfaction is the best solution please. Bheeshma Pitamah did not marry and had no kids but he got salvation based on his tapasya, several Rishis and public also had no kids but did tapasya and got satisfaction. So the person who does not have kids must discharge his moral duties and simultaneously he must study Vedas, do Yajyen with Ved mantras and do practice of Ashtang yoga philosophy. Men or women are considered based on their bodies and not souls. Souls in the body of the bird would be told to be a bird, that in the body of elephant would be elephant. But in reality, their bodies are bird, elephant etc., but not souls. Souls are alive whereas bodies of living beings are non-alive matter. Soul is immortal whereas bodies get destroyed. Therefore at the time of death, soul comes out of body and at stipulated time, soul goes in womb of mother to take next body. Soul does not become powerful until soul gets corporeal (sthool) body. When soul comes out of body, then soul goes out with suksham body because based on suksham body i.e., Mann, (mind, intellect), buddhi, soul gets the next birth. If soul gets final liberation, then soul enjoys divine pleasure through suksham sharer that is why soul after leaving the present corporeal body goes out with suksham sharer. Impure intellect is indulged in illusion due to lack of wisdom whereas pure intellect is free of illusion based on Vedas knowledge, Yajyen and practice of yoga philosophy.

Purity means Almighty God and original form of soul because both are always away from illusion naturally. Otherwise in the world, there is influence of Raj, Tam, Satva qualities of Prakriti, all over which is maya (illusion) and generates kaam, krodh, mad, lobh and ahankar.
Intellect and mind is made of prakriti. I would advise you read my book, comments on “yog shastra- Part I” and “Vedas- A divine light” wherein details of God, Prakriti and souls has been briefed. It will also be more beneficial if you also read my book- Comments on Bhagwad Geeta- 1 to 6 chapters. Books can be sent on receipt of your postal address if you desire. We have five senses i.e., ears, eyes, nose, skin and tongue. Whatever information is collected by the senses from outside world, such information is immediately passed on first to Mann. Mann reflects over the same and then transmit it to Buddhi (intellect). Buddhi decides and sends the information to soul to get orders. So mind is separate from buddhi.

Amit Kumar: I wanted to know whether we all are just one soul? If we are just one soul then why did we get trapped in illusion? Are souls of male and female different? Is the human body meant to be enjoyed? Why does suksham body go with soul if its all powerful and pure? What is intellect? Pure and impure intellect?
Swami Ramswarup: The soul is trapped in illusion because he has forgotten his original form that he is alive matter, the purest, immortal and always away from illusion etc. The said illusion is due o involvement in the materialistic articles as at this juncture soul remains ignorant. When a person makes contact with learned acharya of Vedas and philosopher of ashtang yoga the Vedic preach of acharya removes his illusion. Secondly, we are not one soul please. You see corresponding to the numbers of bodies of living beings present in the world, are the number of souls. That is why, idea of the Yajurveda mantra 31/1 is that all the heads, eyes and legs etc., of living beings are of the God because God lives therein being omnipresent. You see, if we are one soul then if one man would be a learned yogi then all the souls would be yogi similarly if one soul of a body would be sleeping, it means all the living beings of the world would also suffer sleep which is not being seen and which is not even true. Therefore, God is one but souls are several.

Amit Dua: Namaste Swamiji, thanks for answering my questions. I want to ask one more question from Mahabharata. The story of birth of Danveer Karn confuses me a lot from many years. The popular story is that Karn was born through Sun from womb of Mata Kunti which does not seem to be possible. What is the actual story of Karn birth?
Swami Ramswarup: Due to lack of study of Vedas, mostly people do not know the facts. Vedas throw light mainly on three subjects – Almighty God, souls and Prakriti.

God and souls are alive matters whereas Prakriti is non alive. Sun, moon, air, earth and space are also non –alive matters being made of prakriti. So, the non-alive sun which is shinning in the sky is not capable to give birth to anyone. However, the Surya (who was a Rishi at that time) was father of Karnna.

Anxious: Pranam Swamiji, can you give the solution of a situation? If a man is from Arya Samaji family and his wife is however of good nature but is an idol worshiper and is prejudiced about idol worship, than what is the way to take her in Vedic fold and convince her to act according to Vedic system? Will preforming regular hawan at home and giving her Vedic literature to read work in this matter? Secondly, in that case how to give Vedic Sanskars to children?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. Nowadays, mostly human-beings are not aware of the fact that knowledge is gained only when it is given by someone. If we study Vedas, it will be revealed that after final destruction of the earth, when new creation starts, at that time the entire non-sexual human creation was ignorant. They were like the people of the dense jungle who still are ignorant and live in the jungle without clothes, without houses and without science etc. They are uncivilized. Because, the knowledge has not yet been attained by them. Vedas are knowledge, which contain science, form of deeds and real eternal worship of formless God. So, if you can arrange the system under which your wife could be able to listen the preach of Vedas also, then only she will be able to leave the idol worship. She must not be asked again and again to leave the idol worship but happily and lovingly she must be made ready to listen to Vedas by a learned acharya. The acharya at the first instance must not condemn idol worship but he must preach the reality of Vedas and the result will be very convincing.

I would also advise you to give her my two books:
1. Vedas- A Divine Light (in English) and
2. Srimad Bhagwad Geeta- Ek Vedic Rehasya (in Hindi) to study and discuss the contents of the book along with you. You may also see my spiritual VCD based on Vedas’ preach and which contains spiritual songs as well CDS and books can be sent on receipt of your postal address if you desire. In this matter, the books and CDs can be sent on half the rate or free of cost, as you deem fit.

Please also do havan with her daily but first of all with gayatri mantra, only along with its meaning. Thereafter, complete mantras can be recited in near future but not now.
Since she will accept gayatri mantra readily at this juncture but not other mantras.

Please also read the articles on Vedas Philosophy, Trinity, etc.

Prathima: When the bride and the groom are turning around the fire, the poojari recites certain mantra’s. I want to know all those mantra’s in Sanskrit, translated in English.
Swami Ramswarup: The mantras are recited in two ways: First Ved mantras, Second self-made shlokas, etc. Marriage is a sanskar and should be performed according to Vedic customs by a learned purohit. As regards translation of the Ved mantras, it is a big task and is not possible. However, you can send your postal address and the mantras can be sent in batches slowly-slowly and it may take at least four to six months.

Avtar: Can you tell me the mantra of bhramcharya raksha for the unmarried children?
Swami Ramswarup: There is no such mantra. However, preach to maintain brahamcharya is there in the Vedas. I have written a book on brahamcharya in hindi, named- Brahmcharya- Ek Dukh Nivarak Divya manni.It is useful for children as well as adults. The book contains 173 Pages and is of price worthRs.100/-. It has proved very useful for the public. Book can be sent on receipt of your postal address if you desire. Book actually contains Ved mantra’s preach on Brahamcharya.

Kasi Viswanath: It seems I was a yogi in my previous life [yoga brasth]. Astrologers said this on seeing me. So I want to know whether yogies keep chanting gayatri mantra always for salvation or any other mantra? If we chant gayatri for 24 lakh times, will what ever we wish happen?
Swami Ramswarup: Astrologer can’t declare about the previous birth of any person being against the eternal knowledge of Vedas. However, if a person was a yogi then he could have attained salvation and as such no rebirth is required. Secondly, if a person was not a yogi but was doing practice of yoga philosophy then he would take rebirth in a family where facilities to continue Vedas and yoga philosophy becomes available. So you must please recite gayatri mantra daily both times and must also perform daily havan which is a real worship of Almighty God. The worship must be performed selflessly, please. Then automatically God helps the aspirants.

Ayush: If a person has performed some sin knowing well its consequences but later on prays to God to forgive his mistakes will he forgive him?
Swami Ramswarup: No, please. The sins are not excused by God. In, Vedas, God states that one should do worship as Yajyen according to Vedas philosophy. Then only the sins are burnt.

Bipin K Badheka: First of all I would like to thank you on behalf of all readers of this website that you are putting efforts to reply in detail for each and every question asked by readers. Swamiji, since our childhood we have heard and read that Shri Krishna had lifted “Govardhan Parvat” on his small figure to save people from heavy flood. Moreover he had lifted this continuously for few days. Whether this was true. Whether practically this was possible that time through Yoga. How Shri Krishna could have done this? I am curious to know this. Please enlighten.
Swami Ramswarup: Thank you very much please. I always feel personal pleasure to serve them. I bless you all for a long, happy life and bright future. Vedas never appreciate unnatural stories. Secondly, Vyas muni wrote the Mahabharata epic. He and his disciple wrote only 10,000 shlokas of Mahabharata whereas nowadays it contains about one lakh, twenty thousand shlokas i.e., one lakh ten thousand false shlokas have been added.

In ten thousand original shlokas, there is no mention about such story that Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj lifted Govardhan Parvat on his small fingure. Actually, Sri Krishna Maharaj knew every safe path of that area of Govardhan Parvat and when a dangerous storm started then immediately Sri Krishna Maharaj ordered his companions to fetch all the cows to a safe place in Govardhan Parvat which was a big cave. So, all the cows along with milkmen were saved. So in symbolic way it can be told that Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj saved the cows and milkmen by lifting the Govardhan Parvat but the story can never be considered true, that he lifted the Govardhan Parvat on his small finger. Through yoga also it is quite impossible. So, we must listen/learn Vedas to overcome the illusion in India.

Dharmendra: Swamiji, what is the future of India in spiritualism? Why we need God and where goes soul of great yogi like Krishna, Ram after death? And what is your view on UFO?
Swami Ramswarup: India is a religious country. True/eternal religion (Dharma) is established by Almighty God and not by man. So at the time of beginning of the earth knowledge of Vedas emanates from the God for the benefit of all living beings. So, the religion (Dharma i.e., the pious deeds/duties etc.) have been briefed by the God in Vedas. Therefore, the order of Almighty God mentioned in Vedas when are obeyed faithfully, it means we are following eternal religion. In this connection Rigveda mantra 10/85/1 states that the earth is situated on the eternal true religion i.e., base of the earth to exist is the eternal true religion. Mantra states the permanent peace and pleasure is maintained on the earth when human-beings observe the eternal religion. In the Vedas, it is stated that people must do daily Yajyen, services to parents, learned acharya etc. Moral duties mentioned in the Vedas must be discharged faithfully. Such pious deeds are also called Dharma (religion) which will maintain the permanent peace stated above.

Now, please note that every human-being wants peace, pleasure and ill free, long-life. This pleasure etc., would only be got by following the above all pious deeds mentioned in Vedas. Please also note that it is an eternal unchangeable rule of Vedas/God that without worshipping God according to Vedas, nobody can get peace, pleasure, long, happy life and worship of God means to follow Vedic path and to do all above pious deeds, moral duties mentioned in Vedas, So worship is not merely to go to temple etc. So the need of God is to maintain peace and to get long, happy life not only India but in entire world. All liberated souls enjoys divine pleasure with the God. Souls therefore remain in the space and no bindings of any kind remain on them, they being liberated souls. Yes, Vedas state that in all planets human-beings exist but I have not taken any interest uptil now in U.F.O.

K D Gupta: Why did yogis suffered from physical sufferings at last?
Swami Ramswarup: Physical suffering means it relates to body only but not with soul. Soul is separate, body is separate. So, either a yogi observes physical sufferings if he has to face the result of his deeds left or those who claim themselves a yogi but are not a real yogi, they suffer more physical sufferings.

Kinkad: Explain about fourteen brahms. Also gagan mandil and sun sikhar of our body.
Swami Ramswarup: There is only one brahma as mentioned in Vedas. Vedas state- “It Raja Jagato Babhoov” i.e., there is only one Almighty God who is the lord of universe.

Guru Sharma: Pranaam Swamiji, I am bit confused about Sukshma Vyayama, Asanas & Pranayama. Can you please educate me what should be the correct sequence of the above?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. In Ashtang yoga, the sequence is Yam, Niyam, Asan, Prannayam, Pratyahar, Samadhi please. When aspirants listen Vedas and practice ashtang yoga philosophy then one day all his practice becomes suksham i.e., “sahaj” i.e., he gets perfection.
