Ajit: Namaste Yogacharya ji aur charan sparsha….. If I am going to die after 30 minutes…then which is the best deed, is it havan or Naam jaap?. Since Yajyen is the best deed among all, still I wanted some clarification on this.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. First of all, you see, there are three types of sins. First, if bad views are generated in mind, secondly, if the bad deeds are spoken by mouth and third, if the bad deeds are brought in action. So, according to Vedas, even to think about suicide is a great sin. Please, avoid such thinking. Ultimately, the name jaap and havan for such person will always go in vain. I also paste the following-

SUICIDE

Yajurved mantra 7/48 ke anusaar hum jeevatmayein manushya kee yoni mein aakar paap athwa punya karma karne ke liye poornataha azad hain parantu hamare kiye hue karmon ka phal kramshaha dukh evam sukh ke roop mein Parmeshwar deta hai. Artaht karmaphal hamare haath mein nahin hai. Doosra Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2,3 ka bhaav hai ki Parmeshwar nein hamein manushya ka shareer pichhley janamon mein kiye hue paap aur punnya karma ka phal dukh aur sukh ke roop mein bhogne ke liye diya hai aur ab jo paap aur punnya karma kareingey uska phal agley janamon mein bhogeingey. Bhaav yeh hai ki atmahatya ek mahapaap hai isliye jo atmahatya roop paap karta hai, weh bhi janam lekar avashya is paap ko mahadukh ke roop mein bhogega hee kyunki yeh Ishwar ka banaya hua srishtee ka niyam hai. Aur woh janam Rigved mantra 10/51/3 ke anusaar manushya ke shareer ka nahin hoga apitu kutta, billi, gadha, ghoda, saanp, bichchhu athwa keet patang ka shareer wala hoga.
Asal mein to Ishwar nein hamein manushya janam vedic sadhna karke Moksha prapti ke liye diya hai yadi hum vishya-vikaron mein padkar shareerik aur mansik pareshaniyon ka khud shikaar ho jaatey hain aur yeh Ishwar kee dein, jo manav shareer hai, uska dharamyukta istemaal na karke atmahatya jaisa paap karma karte hain to iska matlab yeh hua ki hamne Ishwar kee yeh sundar den thukra dee aur Ishwar ko naraaz kiya. Issey to, karza aur pareshaniyon mein bhi zinda rehney wala Mirza Galib hee achchha tha, jo keh gaya:-

‘Mujhe kya bura tha marna,

Gar ek baar hota.”

Yahaan Galib keh raha hain ki Pareshaniyon se ghabra kar koi marega to iska matlab yeh thodi hai ki weh pareshaniyon se azad ho gaya. Weh aur paapon ke saath is mahapaap ko bhi bhogega. Satya yeh hai ki hum sansari vastuyon aur maya mein phans jaatey hain, jo ki Raj, tam aur satva gunn se banee hotee hain aur sadaa vishaye vikari aur dukh dene walee hain. Inka istemaal to vedic bhakti karne ke sath-sath tyagpoorvak kiya jaata hai tab yeh vastu sukh detee hain anyatha nahin detee hain, is vishya mein main apna ek article paste kar raha hoon.

Ajit: Namaste Yogacharya ji aur Charan sparsh…. When 100 % benefit of Yajyen comes. OR Is it like this, if a person is 30 % clean. Then he gets only 30% benefit of Yajyen. Could you please clarify on this?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. There is no matter of percent. Actually, in the beginning every person has no control on senses, mind and intellect. When the devotee starts listening to Vedas, doing agnihotra/Yajyen, name jaap, practice of Ashtang Yog under the guidance of learned acharya then slowly and steadily he gets command on his senses and always avoids the bad deeds, bad society and sins etc. However, when he starts listening to Vedas under guidance of an acharya, its result in the shape of pious blessings from God and acharya starts.
