Arya: Hello swami ji, I have heard about Muslims they do always a pray example they enter the house or want to drive car they say Bismillah or they want to do anything they say Bismillah. What can we say is there a special Vedic mantra for it?
Swami Ram Swarup: Vedas state that when you start any pious deed like marriage, construction of house, sanskar of children etc., then perform Yajyen with Ved mantras. When you do daily deeds for example- student goes to school, his father goes to office or business etc., then chant either Gayatri mantra or only holy name of God – OM.
When the task gets finished, then also chant OM or Gayatri mantra. The said is eternal philosophy and is most beneficial to entire mankind.

Jagannathan S: Is it correct to say we are born, enjoy and suffer based on our past thoughts & actions otherwise known as karma? If so, what emanates thoughts which lead to action? Can our thoughts and actions in this birth be related to the shaping of our next birth or to be construed as result of our thoughts & actions in the previous birth?
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, please Rigveda mandal 10 sukta 135 states that human body is blessed by God to bear the result of previous lives’ deeds good or bad in the form of happiness and sorrows and whatever we will do in present life, it will be faced in next births. But who makes contact with learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga Philosophy and thus obey the preach of Vedas, they destroy their previous lives’ as well as present life’s deeds and get long, happy life and even salvation.
Thoughts emanate based on bad or good sanskaars of previous lives and present life’s deeds. When a deed (karma), which is called Vipaak karma, is ready to give its result then automatically the situation will arise and the person will be indulged to bear its result.
Three types of Deeds
There are three types of deeds (karmas) – sanchit, prarabhadh and kriyamann. Suppose one soul has to take birth (body). It means he has to face total number of deeds of his all previous lives and these deeds are called sanchit karmas but sanchit deeds are huge/unlimited and cannot be faced in one life. So the karmas which can be faced in one life are called prarabhadh (luck-destiny). So God has not made our luck at His own but Almighty God has taken the deeds which we have already done.
Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clarifies that human being is free to do any deed good or bad but God only awards the result. Now the balance deeds from sanchit deeds will be counted in the next life. Now the deeds which we do in our day today present life are called kriyamann.
If we do pious deeds according to Vedas, shastras and holy books and based on pious preaches of Rishi, Muni/learned saints then our all sanchit deeds are burnt and we can get salvation. Human beings are free in the matter of doing deeds good or bad. But result will be awarded by God. So we must worship and do pious deeds under guidance of a learned Guru. One should go always ahead for hard working, pious deeds, worship to make future bright himself. One should always work hard towards a right path.
Worship does not mean that we are free to discharge only our family duties, education, etc., but rather it is a sin. We have to get progress in both way at a time i.e., spiritualism and worldly progress i.e., science, education, duties towards family etc. God creates the universe according to His eternal law framed in Vedas which are always unchangeable and unchallengeable. So we have to follow the law of God always to get long happy life.
