Jayesh: Respected swamiji, sometimes in our life we do not get the results as we expect even after working hard but other people get it easily even after not applying much efforts . please guide me. What should I do?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. in this regard, I paste my answer-

Only prayers are of no use until the vedas knowledge is gained from the acharya and hard-working is done to obtain the good results of prayers. I meant to say that mere prayers will do nothing. Those men or women who gets comforts are enjoying the results of their previous life deeds but Vedas state that if those persons are away from the true worship of God then they are minimizing their balance of previous lives’ pious deeds and one day sure they will be like a bankrupt and their time will start to face to sorrows, problems etc., still I am telling you that those who have all materialistic comforts are not fully happy being indulged in several problems, tensions, sickness etc., etc. So, we must follow the Vedas wherein it is stated that one should be satisfied with his own earnings and comforts and should know that in the absence of real worship of God no one can attain peace and long happy life whether he is rich or poor.

It is a fundamental law of nature that until and unless knowledge is given by anybody else no knowledge can be obtained and no one can be learned and happy person. So, I, you or any person independently is unable to get the God’s grace, guidance and confidence etc., because nobody can change the fundamental law of nature.

Human-being want help and cooperation that is why, we are social human-being.

So, I would advice you to chant the Gayatri mantra mentally both time sitting on any suitable asan with closed eyes and concentrate between the points of two eyebrows. Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning. To obtain the more and more benefit of Gayatri mantra, one should do havan daily with Gayatri mantra both times. Cassette/Cd/Hindi book to do havan is also available in which guidance to perform the havan have been mentioned. The same can be sent to you on the receipt of your postal address, if you so desire.

Anonymous: Despite my family being religious, we have a family member who is a drunkad. We are very sad. He doesn’t change despite us requesting him many times.
Swami Ram Swarup: Mera aapko ashirwad. Is Baare mein itna hi kahoonga ki karma aur uske phal apne-apne hote hain. Aap sab kewal samjha sakte hain aur kuch nahin kar sakte hain. Samjhate rahiye.

P R: Namaste Swamiji. Please note that I will feel grateful to you if you can advise me how to pray to Shive Shankarin order for me convene the god to bless me and my family and the whole world. Note that I am seeking to have a good life partner specially.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. As the present worship of Shiv Shankar is not mentioned in Vedas, so, I’m sorry that I am unable to say anything on the same. Vedas only tell to worship a Formless, Almighty, Omnipresent God Who creates, nurses and destroys the universe.

Nidhi: Swamiji Pranaam, With your blessings my friend who was sick is slowly recovering… thank you. Hoping that with your blessings the hardships in my life are also reduced.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. You are welcome, my daughter. My blessings are always with you both.

Sagar: Mantra drishta rishi(swamiji) 4vedas are in sanskrit ,i mean the mantras are in sanskrit right from the creation..that means god originated the 4 vedas in the heart of 4 rishis in sanskrit if it so then sanskrit is the language given by god to mankind.if it is true then learning sanskrit will be a pious deed.swamiji pls clarify.
Swami Ram Swarup: No doubt, learning of Sanskrit language is the most pious deed. In this connection, Rishi Pannini states-“ Aksharam Naksharam Vidyat” i.e., the alphabets of Sanskrit language are never destroyed. So, everybody must know it. In another shloka, Pannini Muni states-“ Varnna Gyanum Vagvishya

Yatra Cha Brahma Vartate”

i.e., through the knowledge of Sanskrit language, the Almighty God is known. He adds that those who know the Akshar Gyan i.e., knowledge of Sanskrit language, they make their family full of happiness.
