Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. In Vedas, no proper noun has been used, so name of any saint, Rishi-Muni etc., has not been mentioned therein. Vedas only give knowledge. So, the shloka mentioned by you has not been written in Vedas, please.

Aruna: What is the mean of water polluted?

Aruna: What is the mean of water polluted?
Swami Ramswarup: The meaning of water being polluted is that it does not remain fit for consumption etc. It gets polluted (dirty) by various means like-bathing, putting industrial waste in it, washing etc.

Niranjan: I am working hard but result are not according to us.
Swami Ramswarup: There may be some shortcoming/flaw in your hard working, otherwise the result of hard working given by God is always good. Please consult with any local learned person about the same and he will guide you properly.

I am away and can’t judge your shortcoming from here. However, I also paste one of my relevant articles to be followed, to get best result of hardworking.

Concentration
Concentration is not made on mind, but mind has to be concentrated on particular point or subject etc. It requires practice of Yam, Niyam, Asan, Pranayaam, Pratyahar, Dharnna and Dhyan then one attains Samadhi. In this path, guidance of a spiritual master who knows Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy is needed. Holy name jaap of God helps a lot. I have written a book on Yoga which can be sent on receipt of your postal address. However, personal guidance as stated is essential.

Increasing concentration and devotion towards God
Your views on spiritualism and interest there in is appreciated. This human body is meant for the same while discharging all moral duties. Avoid bad society, always concentrate on your Brahmacharya. Awake early in the morning and after bath- brush etc., do holy name jaap of God at least for 15 minutes. Go for morning walk and light exercises daily. Take plenty of water i.e., at least 15 -to 20 glasses in a day. Always respect your parents, elders and teachers. Must be soft spoken, avoid TV so as not to see bad scenes, films etc. This all will help you to concentrate in your study. Whatever you study and learn, try to write on rough book a lot without seeing books etc. I have written a book on Brahmacharya in Hindi, which can be sent, to you on receipt of your postal address if you so desire, please. The book is specially meant for students.

Please try to study Vedas and holy books which throw light on worship and moksh. I’ll also advice you to study my 2 or 3 books on spiritualism based on Vedas, shastras etc., in Hindi, if possible. Always do pious deeds and try to recite Gayatri mantra both times and do havan from Gayatri mantra. Try to learn asan, pranayaam and meditation locally. I am away and can’t teach you. For any problem you may send e-mail.

Shubh Karma
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.

One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.

Rajesh Kumar Kaushal: Parnam the name of great Rishi Parshuram ji appears in Ramayana, he was guru of Bhishma, Guru Drona and Karna in Mahabharata. What age he attain?
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. If nowadays, you see, you will find common name of several persons. So, the respected Parshuramji of Treta Yug of Ramayan period, was not the same who was in the Dwapur period of Mahabharat period.

Krishna: I was told recently by an astrologer that I am having kalasarpa dhosa in my chart. Thus I would like to get your advice what should I do to reduce the ill effect.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you.
Kaal Sarp Yog & other such defects in astrology
Vedas are eternal and knowledge direct from God wherein such kaal sarp yog etc., are not mentioned, please. So you need not to worry. Please try to do havan daily even from Gayatri mantra, which is a great worship of God and will give you benefit. The meaning of kaal is also time. So death comes according to time for which the God has given life to us. This is all based on our previous lives’ pious deeds and sins. So there is no effect of kaal sarp yog etc., in the life, but effect of deeds (karmas) only. So, one must do always pious deeds to be happy. Present pious deeds can burn our previous deeds also and life’s time can also be extended wide Yajurveda mantra 3/62.

However, you can arrange a Yajyen with Ved mantras here, if you so desire.

S: I am general manager of a multinational company. Our office is facing North. My cabin is in the front. Which direction should I face for better growth of the company and myself? All our colleagues are generally facing east or west. Is it ok?
Swami Ramswarup: In Vedas, there is no such provision of facing particular directions. From the health point of view only cross ventilation system must be there. So, the present situation of your office is O.K. if it contains cross-ventilation system, please.

Angad Madan: Pranaam Swami Ji, My question is: Since the Almight Paramaatma is formless, how exactly do we meditate on Him? How do we visualize during meditation of OM?
With utmost respect..
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. If an aspirant will concentrate over mouth of idol then for sometime he will concentrate on chin, nose, head etc., but concentration on one point will not be achieved. Secondly, Vedas do not preach to concentrate outside the body. Yog shastra sutra 3/1 also states, “DESHBANDHASYA CHITTASYA DHARNA” i.e., concentrate on a point of body like agyachakra, tip of the nose or heart. So we cannot go against the Ved-shastras. Yes, idol worship has been started within two thousand and five hundred years. That is why, Vedas do not tell for idol worship but if people desire, they can go ahead.

Pictures, drawings etc., may not be considered idols but it is an art and not worship of God. We must know that knowledge of Vedas emanates direct from God and idol worship has been made by human beings. So now we have to decide whether we obey God or human beings. If we still follow the path made by humans then no problem, one must go ahead. On the other hand, follower of Vedas must continue his own path.

S S: At present I am doing MBA and its my first semester. I want to become a successful business man. So is it possible or not?
Swami Ramswarup: Yes, it is possible that you can be a successful business person. It only requires hard working and blessings of God. You first please try hard to clear your MBA semesters. After clearing the semesters you may send E-Mail again, please for further guidance.

Indira Saxena: Why do we put tilak on forehead?
Swami Ramswarup: Between the two eyebrows, there is a point which is called “Agyachakra”. While doing prannayam and meditation some warmth is felt here so Rishi-munis used to apply here sandalwood paste which is soothing.
