Ritesh: Swamiji Pranaam Recently someone asked you question regarding gang rape, in your response you said ” Matlab jo yeh gangrape hua hai, aur jinhonein yeh kiya hai, yeh unke is jeevan ke paap wale karma hain.”My question is like the one this gentleman has that, it is difficult
to imagine that God would be that tough on the victim girl to have her go through such agony even if she had done bad karma in her this or previous life. You said, these are kriyamann karm of these people who did rape. How could God let this happen? Why he did not came in some form and protected her from such horrible thing? Why would he let her go through such hideous thing?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. As stated in Rigved mantra 3/56/1 that fundamental laws pertaining to universe, made by God in Vedas are unchangeable and unchallengeable. I mean to say, all Vedas like Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2 state that we have been blessed by God with present human body to face the result of previous lives’ deeds and the deeds
which are being done now, those will have to be faced in future lives. Secondly as per Yajurved mantra 7/48, we all human-beings are free to do pious deeds or sins, at our own discretion but result will be awarded by God. In view of above quoted both the mantras, culprits cannot escape from punishment, according to vedic law. I’ve also recently written the book named “Vedic punishment for criminals (women offenders)” (in English) and “Naari Dushkarmiyon Par Vedon Dwara Dand” (in hindi) in the backdrop of said recent rape case. You are advised to read the book, if you desire.
The price of the book is worth Rs. 25/- each excluding postal charges. The book can be sent to you on receipt of your postal address, if you desire.
Reshma: Does kalki avatars exists is there mention of this in Veda?
Swami Ram Swarup: No, please. Vedas never promote avtarwad. In this connection. I
also paste my article:-
God is only one who creates the universe and no other can create the universe except God. Please think deeply is any one except God empowered for creation, etc.? The pious qualities of God are unlimited whereas qualities of soul, which resides in human body, are limited. That is why He is God. This fact is also mentioned by Rishi Patanjali in his Yog shastra sutra 1/24, “KALEASHKARAMVIPAKASHYAIHI APRAMRISHTAHA PURUSHVISHESHAHA ISHWARAHA” i.e., He who is not indulged in any sorrows/sufferings (kalesh), in any kind of deed (karma) and result thereof (vipakya), He is supreme in souls and is called Ishwar (God), whereas, soul is indulged in all the said matters according to deeds done in previous, and in the present life. So this is also a difference between God and souls and therefore soul can never be God based on the different qualities.
Amongst unlimited qualities of God, few may be enumerated-that God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent and Almighty, beyond description, beyond imagination, and beyond calculation. Nobody on the earth can deny such qualities, but these qualities are to be discussed and considered deeply and he who does the same is called MUNI as per Vedas and shastras.
Let us think over one quality of God – Being Almighty. Almighty means God has all powers and thus God, to control the universe and to do any kind of deed for the same, can not be dependent on another, at any cost, being Almighty. Again shastras say, which is a true saying too, that there must be reason behind for any creation, matter etc. God is a reason to create the universe. Parents are the reason to give birth to a child. Ravana took Sita forcefully which became a reason for war between Shri Ram and Ravana etc. So as per Vedas there must be a reason of avtar and after studying eternal knowledge of Vedas and thinking deeply, there seems no reason to take avtar by Almighty God. As in Yajurveda mantra 2/26, so is in Shwetashwataropnishad shlok 6/8 wherein it is mentioned that there is no reason to form a God and thus God is also formless i.e., nobody can make God but God creates universe from non-alive prakriti. Secondly the said Upnishad says that the deeds of God of creation, nursing, and destruction of universe are eternal, natural, and automatic. So naturally God needs no avtar to destroy Kalyug, earth, or devils etc., being Almighty i.e., God has all powers and is independent. Not God but only His powers are enough to control, create, nurse, destroy the universe. That is why Upnishad says that God has no desire to create etc., but it is eternal and natural and this sort of desire is named “IKSHAN” and not desire to create etc.
Suppose God has to kill a devil and He takes avtar and God kills the devils by arrow etc. It means God is not Almighty and independent because God has taken help of Avtar (Human body) and arrow, gun, etc., which is impossible.
This all I have told based on fundamental law of eternal knowledge of four Vedas. Yet if anybody says about avtar then it is their own views and they are satisfied with their views and can not be commented because they could have been realizing at their own but so far as eternal knowledge of Vedas is concerned, Avtar is not possible.
In Vedas, Avtarvad does not exist. Instead, the knowledge is given in the matter that God is Almighty i.e., He has all unlimited powers, so there is no reason to take avtar when God is Himself empowered to do any deed and is empowered to command and control the universe, then
why would He require an assistant.
Kalki avtar ke vishaye mein apne-apne vichaar hain isliye is avtar ke vishaye mein janta kehtee hai. Parantu vedon ke anusaar avtar leina sambhav nahin hai.
