Suheal: Pranam Guru ji. In many ashrams and spiritual organizations, people say that the gurus who have left their physical bodies are still guiding the students. Is it possible that after leaving their physical bodies, the gurus guide their students? Further it is said that the sidhas can retain their bodies for thousands of years. How is it possible when vedas give a maximum life of 400 years?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Your above statement only applies to a learned of Vedas and Ashtang yog philosophy and not others. So, when a person knows fundamental of Vedas then he needs not to think about falsehood. I mean to say, whom you are telling, they were not learned of Vedas and Ashtang Yog and moreover they did not attain Samadhi. When you know fundamental of Vedas to retain the body for not more than 400 years then to think against it, is of no use.
MeiKam: Dear Guruji, Vedas is self-proof – it is the knowledge and the truth. What if someone said book of their sect is self-proof and it is the truth. How could we justify? Thanks!
Swami Ram Swarup: Blessings beti. Knowledge of Vedas emanate directly from God whereas other sects and connected religious books have been made by us. So, it is a lot of difference.
MeiKam: Dear Guruji, If some other people said he/she has attained Samadhi/ realized God, how can we make an assessment whether it is true or not? Thanks!
Swami Ram Swarup: Blessings beti. If the claimant has studied Vedas fully, has practiced Ashtang Yog philosophy fully, traditionally under the guidance of learned Acharya of Vedas then possibility to attain Samadhi arises but nowadays everybody claims to have attained Samadhi, claim to have realized God but are totally ignorant as well as are against Vedic culture. We must save ourselves from falsehood. Yes, if somebody has attained Samadhi, then all would must respect and serve him, say Vedas.
