MeiKam: Dear Guruji It is said that yoga is not meant for curing any diseases. Then how about the yoga therapy in Ayurveda, which is also originated from Vedas? Thanks.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. People are using the asan, prannayaam to cure the diseases but you see, my daughter, the aim of human-life is not only to get good health. You see, good health can’t be maintained forever and one day everybody has to face death and thereafter soul wanders and takes several births, based on his deeds in the bodies of insects, animals, parasites, birds etc., and he faces unlimited sorrows but by following Vedic path and doing practice of Ashtang Yog, we get permanent peace divine merriment and salvation.
So, use of asan, prannayaam only to take care of health is misleading thought because main aim of Ashtang Yog is to attain salvation. So, use of Yog vidya in Ayurved or in anywhere else only to cure health is against the Vedas.
Mukesh Kumar: Maine jana ki Maa mahalaxmi hi sampooran sristi ki swamini hai abum Maya ki bhi. unhone apne sareer we hi maha Kali abum mahasaraswati maata ka avtar karaya aur unse shiv Vishnu Brahma saraswati laxmi kaali adi ka pradurbhav hua. un Maa mahalaxmi ki pooja aur dhyan kaise karu?
Swami Ram Swarup: Sampoornna srishti ka Swami kewal ek niraakaar, sarvashaktimaan, sarvavyapak srishti rachayeeta, paalan karta evam sanhaarkarta Ishwar hai. Iske atirikt aur koi doosra nahin hai Vedon ne clearly kaha hai- “Na Jatah na janishyate” ki hey! Parmeshwar! Tere jaise na koi paida hua hai aur na paida hoga. Doosra Charon ved kehte hain ki kewal yahi Ishwar sab rattan, dhan, sampada aadi ka swami hai anya koi nahin. Ishwar ke paas anant Shakti, vidya aur anant rattan, dhan, aishwariya hai, Issee Ishwar kee Pooja kee jaatee hai, anya kee nahin. Baaki jo kuch shesh aapne likha woh vedon mein nahin hai, isliye Rishi-Muni, Tapasvi, Yogi isko nahi sweekar karte.
Tushita Nepal: Namaste ! Thanks a lot for your attempt. Of course all know about th 4 four Vedas and was written by Veda Vyasa who was born in Damauli Nepal . But there is 5 th veda too which is being used by the Almighty GOD himself now and the spiritual vibration can be found at Daman Inareshwor temple where 3 OM appeared during our grand pooja.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. According to Atharvaved kand 19, sukta 6 and Yajurved mantra 31/7 and Rigved mantra 10/181/1,2, Samved mantra 388, it is proved and learned of Vedas of the world know that the knowledge of four Vedas i.e., Rigved, Samved, Yajurved and Atharvaved emanates directly from God, in the beginning of every creation. So, question of fifth Ved does not arise. Secondly, knowledge of Vedas emanates from God but it is not in the shape of book or note altered by God etc. In this connection, I paste my article as under-
God has made universe and blessed us with human body to do pious deeds to attain salvation only. He has not made any heaven or hell. All have to face the result of their deeds, good or bad here only, even by taking rebirth. (Rigveda mantras 10/135/1,2 refer)
God has not only made universe but has also given knowledge of four Vedas where answers to your and everyone’s questions have been given. There are four Vedas:
1. Rig Veda – gives knowledge of science, matter of the universe like sun, moon, air, body etc., etc.
2. Yajurved – gives knowledge of all the deeds and duties to be performed by men, women, students, leaders, king, agriculturist etc., etc., etc.
3. Samved – gives knowledge how to worship God who gives peace and long happy life etc. In this way, details of Yoga philosophy, qualities, supreme deeds and nature of the God are also given.
4. Atharvaved – gives details of God, medical science and details of medicine etc.
Actually in four Vedas there is unlimited knowledge. Yajurveda mantra 40/8 says that God is everywhere, is Almighty, formless, devoid of nervous system, purest, away from sins and does not have to face any result of any karmas (deeds), knows every soul, knows what is in everyone’s mind, no body has made God, but God creates universe, has given the eternal knowledge of four Vedas and always gives the said knowledge at the beginning of every universe to know the science and deeds to all concern. Similarly four Vedas say about God that God is an omnipresent, omniscient, formless, beyond imagination and beyond calculation. Actually God has unlimited qualities. There is only one God who creates, nurses, destroys the universe and recreates. Atharvaved mantra 4/1/1 also says that God gives the knowledge of Vedas at the beginning of the earth to four Rishis of non-sexual creation. And thereafter only public listens Vedas through Rishis- Munis as yet and become learned. Rig-Veda gives knowledge of Almighty, Yajurved gives knowledge of karmas (deeds), Samved tells about worship-Yoga philosophy and Atharvaved about medicines and God. Actually all Vedas commonly says about God also, so this is about Vedas in short. But the knowledge of Vedas is endless.
It is a fundamental law that knowledge is always given by somebody. Otherwise knowledge can’t be gained at any cost. If a new born baby is nursed well in a dense jungle and is not educated then he will not be able to gain any knowledge even if he becomes young or old. So we have to think about the origin of the knowledge prevalent in the world today. In this connection the Vedas themselves say that God gives this knowledge to four Rishis. As said by Rishi Patanjali in Yog shastra sutra 1/26, God is the first Guru of the four Rishis. Yajurved mantra 31/7 also refers. This is all in short about Vedas.
The Vedas are not a book, rather it is a knowledge originated in the heart of Rishis. At the time of beginning of the earth those Rishis preached Vedas by mouth and all others remembered the same orally. At that time there was no pen, pencil, paper, etc. This process of studying Vedas orally remained till Mahabharata time. Muni Vyas too remembered Vedas traditionally by heart. Then Muni Vyas for the first time wrote the Vedas on Bhoj patra about 5300 years ago. In 16th century when printing press came into existence then the Vedas were printed. Still Vedas are not those which have been printed but those which are preached by mouth by an Acharya/yogi and the printed Vedas are called Sanhita.
Now if somebody worships a statue etc., then it is their own creation please but Vedas deny. According to Vedas the best worship of the God is Yajyen for which all Vedas are self-proof. Yajurveda mantra 31/16 says that the learned persons worship God by Yajyen.
So many people have asked me that most of the scholars/preachers of different religion state that their religion incorporates all matters of the world including science. What about Vedas? I wrote so many Ved Mantras describing science matters therein. For example, Yajurved Mantra 3/6 states
“Ayam Gauhu Swaha Pitram Puraha Prayan Mataram Prishnihi
This earth revolves around the Sun in the space and it also rotates on its own axis. Vedas are eternal like God because Vedas emanate from God. Now, according to Vedas, this present creation is about 1 Arab, 96 crores, 8 lakh 53,111 years old. So are the Vedas but as said in Rigveda Mantra 10/191/3 the present creation is same as was the previous one and this process of creation is eternal. So are the Vedas which emanate from eternal God. This all concludes that Vedas are the oldest in this creation also and no other book of science, maths or pertaining to spiritualism is written before Vedas.
Like the above example of rotation and revolution of earth, the significance of whole present science is mentioned in Vedas. We can see that whatever is happening in the universe, is all according to the Vedas. For example, occurance of six seasons, actions of Sun, moon, process of death, birth, worship, yoga philosophy, atomic energy, agriculture, animal husbandry, knowledge of politics, administration, architecture, solar energy, knowledge of home appliances like mixer, grinder, business rules, about men, women, children, marriage, Brahmacharya, education, clothes etc., etc., i.e., knowledge right from a straw to Brahma is all in Vedas. God is Almighty and has unlimited powers. So through His power He is able to originate the knowledge of Vedas in the heart of four Rishis without pencil, paper, help of mouth or any other worldly assistance.
We, i.e., the whole world depends on Almighty God but God is forever independent. That is why, He is God. We are the souls who reside in human bodies. We need assistance of senses, perceptions, mind and body to do deeds but not God.
Nowadays, so many saints are writing books. What is the background to write their books? Background is clear that they have first studied or listened the preach from their Gurus, keeping aside the matter of truth or falsehood. And after studying or listening the same, they became able to write the books. So this is also fundamental law, based on which, the ancient Rishis first listened Vedas and when they became learned then only they wrote the Vedic books like Valmiki Ramayana, six shastras, Mahabharat (Bhagwad Geeta), Upanishads, etc., etc. So, first the knowledge of Vedas is initiated in the universe and afterwards other books come into existence.
Somebody may say that human beings have knowledge by their nature to create anything like books etc., but we see that the newly born baby who is nursed in a jungle, in the absence of knowledge of a learned person, he becomes incapable to do anything. Thus, he can’t be M.A, M.Sc, doctor etc. So there are two types of the words and meanings. First, eternal which are from Almighty God and second, natural made by human beings. Eternal word meanings are always from Vedas i.e., from God. After listening/studying Vedas, human beings become learned and then too based on their own natural knowledge, they make their own words and meanings, literature etc. But it is very much clear that in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, no one can become learned. Nowadays, also people live in dense jungle and do not lead a civilized life because they are not learned as cited above. Vedas are not sects because they emanate direct from God and God is one for all human beings. God creates sun, moon, air, water, food etc., which are meant for the best use of all human beings for their long, happy life, so are the Vedas.
So all human beings must accept Vedas as an eternal knowledge from God, for the benefit of whole creation.
So, in every creation, right from beginning the knowledge of Vedas is listened from Vedas from Rishi-Munis traditionally and is remembered by heart. So, Vedas is not a book and has never been written by any Rishi-Muni, man-woman etc. Before five thousand three hundred years ago, Vyas Muniji was born and traditionally he also learnt Vedas from Rishi-Munis, he also remembered Vedas by heart. Once, he decided to write down Vedas which he remembered and he wrote. So, Vedas have not been written by Vyas Muniji also. Vedas’ knowledge as quoted above emanates directly from God. So, nowadays, the ved mantras printed in the shape of books from Bhoj patra written by Vyas Muniji are called Samhitas and not Ved.
