A: Guruji pranaam death nischit h to phir suicide kya h suicide karne wale death se pahle chale jate hai kya?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Death to nishchit hai beta, woh paap nahin hai lekin suicide karmna to paap hai. Kyunki suicide mein bhi mrityu hotee hai. Parantu weh mrityu Ishwar ke niyam anusaar nahin hotee, apitu marne wala khud suicide karta hai.
Gaurav: Pranam guruji Maine kafi sare equation pade aur answers bhi par jab geeta padi toh mujhe malum hua ki ishwer nirakar hai aur hum jis rup mai unhe chahenge wo usi roop mai prakt honge aur Krishna ji un ishwer ka hi Dakar swaroop hai isme kya confusion hai aur log kyu is yatharth satya ko nahi mante mai thoda SA Janna chahunga?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Dear Gaurav, actually Bhagwad geeta Vyas muniji ne likhee hai aur yeh Mahabharat ke Bheeshma parv ka extract hai. Bhagwad Geeta totally ved vidya/gyan par adharit hai kyunki iske writer Vyas muniji aur isko bolne wale Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj dono hee charon vedon ke aur vedon mein kahee vidya ke gyata hain. Isliye Bhagwad Geeta par sachchey comments to kewal weh hee likh sakta hai jo VyasMuniji aur Sri Krishna Maharaj jaise charon vedon ke gyata hon. Vedon mein Avtarwad nahin hai. Parantu lagbhag ninety five percent se adhik Geeta shloka par comments Avtarwad par hee likhein hain kyunki jo writers hain woh mostly charon ved aur Ashtang Yog vidya ke gyata nahin hain. Vedon mein Ishwar ko ‘Ajah ek Paat’ kaha hai, Jiska arth hai ki Ishwar janam-marann mein nahi aata aur apne gunn, karma, swabhaav aur nirakaar swarup ko kabhi badalta nahi hai, sadaa ek ras rehta hai.
Jaise vedon mein Ishwar ko- Hirannyagarbhaha arthat Jyoti swarup kaha hai, ab uska jyoti wala swarup change nahi ho sakta, atah jis bhavna se hum Ishwar ko prakat karna chahein, woh us roop aur bhavna se prakat nahi hota,apitu jub koi sadhak poornna roop se kisi vidwan ke ashray mein rehkar ved aur Ashtang yog ka Adhyayan karta hai aur vidya ko Jeevan mein dharann karta hai tabhi us nirakaar, sarvavyapak, sarvashaktimaan, srishti rachayita Parmeshwar kee anubhuti sadhak ko uske hriday mein hotee hai. Yahaan hamare paas Bhagwad Geeta kee vyakhya vedanusaar kee gayee hai. Yadi aapkee ichcha ho toh aap apna postal address bhejein tub chaar bhagon mein chappee Bhagwad Geeta aapko mil jayegee.
Varadarajan: Swamiji I am not a science freak, but raising smoke by crones of devotees will be great atmospheric pollution. Am I wrong?
Swami Ram Swarup: If in Yajyen, mango wood is used then hardly some pollution is raised which is not harmful instead the hawan samagri and pure ghee used in performing Yajyen is thousands times more beneficial than smoke. Actually in the absence of performing Yajyen, God is not pleased. It is the best worship of God, say all four Vedas. Secondly, God himself orders all human beings to perform daily Yajyen. So we must obey God and the benefits of Yajyen are unlimited. I paste my article, wherein some benefits are enumerated:-
Benefits of Yajyen
Yajurveda gives knowledge to do pious deeds. The first mantra of Yajurveda (1/1) says that human beings must perform Yajyen in which offerings are put in burning fire with Ved mantras. Then mantra says it will prevent the infectious disease and will give constant pleasure. Samveda mantra 534 says that the ingredients like ghee and samagri when poured in fire while performing Yajyen, then these matters go in sky and cause rain and purify the atmosphere.
Samveda mantra 536 says that in YAJYEN, the matters (aahuti/offerings) go up to sun and give strength to sun to cause rain. Samveda mantra 537 tells the offerings in a Yajyen must touch the ray of light of sun. Samveda mantra 539 says that the offerings in a Yajyen, go to the sky to create rain so that the animal, birds etc., are increased in number. Samveda mantra 1379 says that Yajyen must be performed while chanting Ved mantras and mantra 1380 says that age is increased by Yajyen.
Samveda mantra 1363 says that one who loves Yajyen, he only concentrates/meditates. Samveda mantra 1270 says that the offerings in Yajyen go in the sky through ray of light of sun. Yajurveda mantra 1/2 says that Yajyen purifies the earth. It reaches to ray of light of sun and goes to sky and sun through air. Yajyen purifies the air and holds the universe spreading pleasure all over. When Yajyen is performed then air touches the burning fire and scientifically is purified just as water is boiled on fire and becomes purified. Then the pure air goes up (on being heated) and the impure air starts touching the fire and after becoming purified goes to sky and this procedure is continued till the end of Yajyen.
Yajyen is basically performed by using wood of mango tree. A scientist named Trelle of France did experiments on Yajyen. He found that Yajyen is mainly performed by using mango tree. When the wood is burnt then a gas, “formic aldehyde” is liberated which destroys the harmful bacteria and makes the atmosphere pure. Then only, the scientists made “formalin” from “formic aldehyde” gas. He also did experiment on jaggery/Gur (in Hindi raw sugar) and found that on burning the jaggery, jaggery also generates “formic aldehyde” gas.
A scientist named Tautlik came to know that if we stay in a Yajyen and its smoke for half an hour then the germs of typhoid are destroyed and all these matters are used in Yajyen.
Yajurveda says that four types of things mainly used to prepare offerings for a Yajyen:
1. Sweet Like honey, jaggery, raw sugar etc.,
2. Antibiotic herbs like gyol, etc.,
3. Nutrition like pure ghee, dry fruits etc.,
4. Fragrant materials like elaichi (cardamom) dried petals flowers etc.
When all these are offered then it happens that just as a household lady in her kitchen fries chilli in ghee then you know the effect of the chilli through air even goes to a far distance like drawing room and other rooms too. So is the case of Yajyen and similarly the offerings of all the things goes to the sky and to sun making contact with air and ray of light of sun.
Chilli leaves its bad effect to the nose whereas the above said things used in Yajyen leave the best affect in atmosphere according to the qualities of each thing. That is why Samveda mantra 3 says that burning fire is like messenger/ambassador which does work to carry the effect of all above things to the sky i.e., spreads them in atmosphere. Everybody knows that things/matters are never destroyed but change their shape only. There is also a misunderstanding that in a Yajyen/havan, carbon dioxide gas is generated. Carbon dioxide is available in whole of universe. Its huge quantity is harmful but when carbon dioxide comes out from havan, duly mixed with ghee and other things it becomes beneficial to all human beings. Secondly, burning of mango does not liberate much of carbon-dioxide. Scientists also say that carbon dioxide is taken by human beings in soda lemonade which becomes digestible. Therefore the holy Yajyen in addition is a scientific action which is beneficial to the whole universe.
Dr. Kundanlal (M.D.) was an allopathic doctor, he took twelve test tubes made of glass, duly purified scientifically, six sets of two test tubes each made and each set was filled with milk and food i.e., six were filled with milk and six were filled with food. In six test tubes, there was air of
Yajyen/havan. In other six test tubes there was only ordinary air of garden filled. Now Dr. Kundanlal started regular watch on each set of test tubes. He found the result that the food which was filled by ordinary air of garden started decaying and giving bad smell quickly whereas the food with air of Yajyen/havan started decaying slowly. This experiment was based while performing a single havan but a spiritual havan containing all things (minimum 21 herbs) will give the best result.
Therefore there are unlimited benefits of Yajyen which cannot be explained in full, being very lengthy. I have forgotten about an article I read in a leading newspaper of India about ten years back, in which it was mentioned that in a country, a jungle up to the area of 30 miles started getting dried up due to a disease in herbs and trees. The Govt. tried level best to nurse the jungles but all in vain. The country came to know from somewhere about Yajyen and not Yajyen but a simple havan without Ved mantras was started there and slowly, the whole jungle was recovered and became green, duly free from disease. Yajyen in the night will contain only spiritual effect but the physical effect for causing rain and purification of atmosphere will be decreased as all the things used in Yajyen/havan will be unable to go to sky and even to sun in the absence of ray of light of sun as mentioned in above mantras.
