Kalpesh: Why did Mahabharat war start?
Swami Ram Swarup: Mahabharat war was started between Kaurava’s and Pandavas. It was totally a family dispute and especially was fought to establish the truth.
Rohit: Pranam Swamiji, parmatma ke bare meine janana chahta hu? kuch gyani log batate hai ke parmatma nirakar hai woh ho ham sab Ka pita hai usi Ka dhyan karo use shiv kahete hai, woh ek jyoti swaroop sthit hai. Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh , krishna yeh sab pahele ke yug ke sarvagun sampan manushya or ek raja hai. sirf parmatma ko yaad karo. hame. koi pooja, archana,diya, agarbatti ya koo mandir meine jaane ki avshyakta nahi hai. Gita Bho krishna bhagwan ne nahi likhi hai woh to parmatma ki den hai. krishna, laxmi Narayan yeh to manyush yoni me se janme hai woh to ek satyug ke raja hai. kai log kahete hai shiv or shankar bhinna hai. kai gyani log kahete hai hare krishna ka mantra karo or kai gyani upar ki baat batate hai Toh Guruji aap bataye kiski Puja or dhyan kare . kaun sabse upar hai means sanna pita hai?hum bahut confuse hai kiska saccha mane aur kiska nahi! Toh yeh parmpita ya parmatma kaun hai Brahma,Vishnu ya Mahesh(shankar)? pls satya par praksh dale.
Swami Ram Swarup: This is eternal truth based on the eternal knowledge of the Vedas that Pramatma Nirakar hai. Pita weh hota hai jo palan poshan karta hai, aap khud hee dekhein kee sansaar ko zameen, bhojan paani aur har tarah kee suvidha dekar Parmeshwar hee to palna kar raha hai. Isliye Parmeshwar hee hamara sachcha param pita hai. vedon mein Parmeshwar ko “ Hiranayagarbha” kaha hai jiska arth hai Jyotiswaroop. Isliye Ishwar ko Jyotiswaroop kaha hai. Ishwar se hee jyoti lekar suraj, chand, sitaare sabhi chamak rahe hain. Use kee hee jyoti se yeh sara sansaar prakriti se prakat hokar chamak raha hai. vedon mein avtarwad nahin hota. Isliye prithivi par koi bhi manushya Ishwar ka avtar ban kar nahin aaya hai. Haan, Shri Ram, Krishna aur anek Rishi muniyon mein weh Jyotiswaroop Parmeshwar prakat hua tha. Parantu weh mahan purush Parmeshwar nahin theiy, Prameshwar ke samaan theiy. Is Jyotiswaroop Parmeshwar se hee har ek srishti rachna ke shuru mein Charon vedon ka gyan nikalta hai aur “Amathuni Srishti” ke char Rishiyon ke hriday mein prakat ho jata hai. yeh sabhi manushya jaati ke kalyaan ke liye prakat hota hai. isliye hamara yeh kartavya hai ki hum vidvanon se ved vidya ko sune, apnayein aur vedon ke anusaar gyan, upasana aur karam ko jankar tarakki karein. Yahi Bhagwan kee pooja hai ki hum vedon mein kahi pooja karein admiyon kee kahi na karein.
Bhagwad Geeta Granth, Mahabharat granth ke Bheesham parv se liya gaya hai aur mahabharat granth “Vyas muni” ji nein likha hai. Isme sara vedic gyan hai. hamein Geeta ved janne wale vidwan se sun-ni chahiye anya se sun-ne par bhranti paida hogi. Is vishya par main apna article neeche paste kar raha hoon.
God is formless
Being formless there is no need of statue or temple of God according to Vedas. As a matter of fact, you, I or every human being, lives in a body. Body is separate, we are called souls. Vedas say soul has no form even. Then also we know each other. For example even if you have not seen the photograph of King Akbar then, you can know Akbar by means of the study of his qualities. So is the case with the God. If an aspirant really goes to his Guru and listens Vedas like Shri Ram, and ancient kings and their public then he will be able to know hundred percent about formless God. Then comes realization for which Vedas (especially Samveda) says that he who performs Yajyen, does jaap (according to Vedas) and practises Ashtang Yoga Philosophy while remaining in family like Shri Ram etc., he sure realizes, being eternal law.
If we will meditate concentrating outside our body which is also against Vedas/Ashtang Yoga Philosophy, then our attention will always naturally remain outside i.e., attached with outer world i.e., decoration/music/dances etc. In that case subject matter of God will be over. It will be converted into spending fun, doing dances and singing attractive songs by ladies and gents, which is totally against Vedas. Thus the chapter of praising God, True Acharya, Rishi-Munis, performing Yajyen, practice of Ashtang Yoga, eternal knowledge of Vedas etc., will be over.
It is also baseless to say that study of Vedas and practice of yoga philosophy is difficult. It is self made story because Vedas are also called Shruti i.e., Vedas are to be listened first and not to be studied. So to listen to the Vedas, a learned Acharya is needed. The Acharya will explain the Ved mantras in the Yajyen in your own language i.e., in English or Urdu etc., and for an aspirant to do asan, pranayaam, meditation etc., is also not difficult. It is all difficult for those human beings, including present false prophets, (who are against the Vedas), who are lazy, can’t awake early in the morning to listen Vedas and fail to do practice of yoga philosophy. Those people are always after money, materialistic articles and pomp and show etc.
Vedas are not written or spoken by God. This knowledge is emanated from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis as stated above. God is Almighty i.e., He has all powers. So He needs no assistance to do deeds of universe. In human body alive soul resides and soul is dependent, soul requires mouth to speak, eye to see, hand to write etc., etc. but not God. From His power God originates the knowledge of Vedas in the rishis without writing, or speaking etc. Vedas’ knowledge is divine. The fundamental of the Vedas is this that it was not written or spoken. The knowledge by the power of God was originated about one Arab 96 crore, 8 lakh and 53,111 years ago. Then first time the four rishis of nonsexual creation started pronunciation of the mantras by the power of God. God wanted them to know word meanings and sense of the mantras and therefore the rishis knew all. Then first time the four rishis started pronunciation of the mantras. They taught the mantras to other ignorant people. Then more rishis were produced who knew the Vedas by heart by listening only. There was no paper, ink or pen there. The Vedas were being learnt orally and traditionally this process is yet in force. But mostly not by heart but taking help of the printed book. So printed books are not called Vedas but these are called samhita.
Samhita means the collection of Ved mantras. Therefore Present printed books cannot be considered as Vedas and will never be in future, but samhita. Kapil Muni throws light on this point in his Sankhya Shastra sutra 5/48 that when a rishi does tapsya in the shape of Yajyen, study of Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga then the Ved mantras still (now also) originate in heart of the Rishi and the rishi pronounces the mantras. Those mantras are called Vedas, which emanate from God. So Vedas must first be listened (study) from alive Acharya (Guru who knows Vedas). Then only Samhita (books of Vedas) can help.
Names of God
In the Vedas there is only one God but has so many names according to His qualities. For example His name is OM which means the God is the saviour of all. His name is SURYA (sun) i.e., sun has light but sun takes light from God because God has the supreme and Divine light of His own. His name is Chandrma (moon). Moon gives peace, calm, cold and charming light so the name of God is also Chandrma (moon) because God gives peace, calm etc., to those who worship etc., etc. we all people do not worship thirty three Goddesses as briefed above. Shiva means Kalyan i.e., happiness, welfare, good fortune and benediction etc., i.e., He who does welfare to human beings, He is Shiva and He is only one Almighty God said above. Vishnu means He who is everywhere and He is only one Almighty God.
Rig-Veda mantra 1/164/46 says,” EKAM SADRUPA VIPRAH BAHUDHA VADANTI,” i.e., EKAM SATAM means truth is one i.e., God is one but VIPRAH = Rishis, Munis who were/are learned of Vedas, BAHUDHA VADANTI utter so many names of God mentioned in Vedas like AGNIM YAMAM MATRISHVANAM AAHUHU meaning-the names of God are Agni, Yam, Matrishva and AAHUHU means “says”. In Yajurveda mantra 32/1 the names of God stated are AGNI, ADITYA, VAAYU, CHANDRMA, SHUKRAM, BRAHM, AAPAH, and PRAJAPATIHI ETC, ETC, ETC. I would explain the meaning of above all the names of God in brief due to shortage of time and space.
AGNI= agrini i.e., at the top or who comes first or who was before the creation and according to the said qualities, here the meaning of Agni pertains to God i.e., God is eternal and therefore exists always before the creation etc. that is why Rigveda mantra 1/1/1 says AGNIM Eedey – in the said mantra the meaning of Agni is God according to the qualities and situation. Meaning of Eedey is desire. Therefore the meaning of Agnim Eedey is , “I am desirous of God. Similarly YAM means controller of universe, Matrishva means air i.e., like the air God gives life to human beings. Aditya means which can not be broken into pieces, Chandrma means like moon God gives calm/peace, Shukram means Almighty, Brahma means the superior/the biggest/the greatest etc., in the universe, Aapah means omnipresent, Prajapatihi means one who nurses the universe. So all the said meanings have the qualities of God and hence the name of God in the Vedas, but these are always uttered by Rishis Munis, who are learned of Vedas, as mentioned in Rig-Veda mantra quoted above. Therefore only Rishis Munis who are learned of Vedas, utter or tell the holy name of God mentioned in Vedas and those who do not know Vedas can never utter the above holy names of God. But the said holy names, on the other hand, are even of surprising nature to them.
One thing more, the holy names of God in the Vedas are according to the nature, knowledge and deeds (God creates, nurses, destroys and controls the universe etc.) of Almighty God. Therefore those names are eternal and countless. So I am not able to mention here infinite names of Almighty God being beyond imagination, beyond calculation and beyond description etc., and we have to worship the said Almighty God whose description is in four Vedas, whose study has mostly been made to be stopped by the present saints who are against the Vedas and speak only charming stories etc., and never tell about Vedas. Whereas the description of Vedas is in Geeta, Ramayana,
six shastras, Upnishads and all ancient holy books. The reason why the present (most of them) saints do not quote Vedas is that they do not study the Vedas, do not do Yajyen and do not obey Ashtang Yoga Philosophy mentioned in Vedas which was also adopted by Shri Ram, Shri Krishna, Mata Sita, King Harishchandra, king Dashrath and their subjects/ public etc. Therefore we must be aware of false prophets.
Sri Ram aur Shri Krishna raja bhee thei aur Brahamleen Yogi bhee thei Shivji maharaj bhee ek Pooran yogi hue hain. Sabhi ne Us Nirakar, Sarvashaktimaan, Parmeshwar kee pooja kee thee. Pooja aur dhyaan karne ke liye kisi ved ke gyata aur Ashtang Yog vidya ke gyata ke paas ja kar ved kee shiksha grahann karni chahiye. Weh hee tumhein yag, hawan, Ishwar ke naam ‘Om’ ka jaap aur Yog vidya ka gyan dega. Iska abhyaas karna hee Ishwar kee pooja kehlati hai. ya to mere paas aa jao shiksha lene ya kisi nazdeek local acharya ko dhoondh kar unke paas jao. Parampita “Parmatma” hee hai. Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh ke bare mein main apna article neechey paste karta hoon-
Are Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh Gods?
Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh are not God. Vedas tell that there is only one formless God who never takes birth. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe. His power is enough to create and control the whole universe. He is Almighty i.e., He has all unlimited powers and therefore He does not need any assistance to create, nurse and destroy the universe by Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. If God needs assistance then He will not be called Almighty. So God does not need any support but we all humans as well as all living beings need His support and blessings every time. However, in Vedas, there are innumerable names of Almighty God according to His divine qualities. So Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh etc., are also the names of the formless Almighty God. Brahma means the greatest. Vishnu means omnipresent and Mahesh means the greatest.
It is the personal matter of worship or not to worship. So atheists are also there. But it is very clear that God in Vedas as clarified that He Has blessed the human being with human body to worship and realise God. Nobody can attain happy life in the absence of worship of God. One more thing is clear from Vedas in which God states –Oh man/woman you live on the earth given by God and all comforts provided by the God. And if you do not remember/worship God then it is sin and punishment is awarded by the God.
Very few persons know that present science has also come out from Vedas, especially Rigveda. The knowledge of Vedas also emanates from God. So, it is clear that scientist also enjoy science which is given by God. God is not only the matter of blind faith. It is the matter of discussion with a learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga philosophy who from Vedas, shastras and Upnishads etc., and scientifically also prove the existence of God. For example- we see the creation and can think deeply that who has created it or is it a job of man/woman, scientist etc., then automatically after long discussion we would reach on the conclusion that men/women/scientist have not created the universe and then He who has created is called Almighty God.
Vishnu is also a name of formless, Almighty God based on quality. Quality is a sunder- “Vishnu” word is made from “Vishlari” Dhatu and the sense of Vishlari” is omnipresent. So he who has the quality of being Omnipresent at all times without a second’s break, He is Vishnu and no other Vishnu exists equivalent to this God. Similarly, Brahma= “Vri Vridhau” i.e., the biggest amongst the universe. Naturally, He is Almighty God. So, the name of Almighty God is also Brahma. Similarly, according to Yajurveda mantra 16/41 shiv means he who is beneficial/causes welfare, is shiv. The most beneficial, who creates and nurses the universe is Almighty God. So, Shiv is also name of Almighty God.
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.
D: Swamiji mujhe aapki madad chahiye maine jisse prem kiya woh mujhe ab yeh kehker chod raha hai ke gharwaale nahin maan rahe hai jabki pehle se use pata tha aur woh tab tayaar bhi tha iske liye , lekin achanak se ek din woh mujhe aaker bola ke ab woh mere saath nahin ho sakta woh bhi dukhi hia aur main bhi maine bahut koshish ki use bhholne ki , per aisa hi nahi raha hai please meri madad kero i really need help
Swami Ram Swarup: D beti, aapne khud hee galat step lekar us ladke par vishwas kiya, isliye is ka phal ant mein dukh to hona hee hai. Sirf aap ke hee case mein nahin balki saari duniya ke liye Ishwar nein vedon mein yeh aagya dee hai ki koi bhi shadi se pehle opposite sex ko dil na dein. Jis- Jis nein Ishwar kee is aagya ko nahin jaana aur nahin maana to un sabhi nein aasal mein badaa dukh payaa hai aur aap jo keh rahe hain ki woh ladka bhi dukhi hai ya uske mata pita nahin maan rahe hain, to yeh sab us ladke ka banaya hua bahana hai. weh tumse safaid jhooth bol rahaa hai. ab aap ko usko dimaag se nikaal deina chahiye, woh aapka dushman tha. Agar ussey dimaag se nahin nikaalogee to aur maha dukh paogee Kyunki usne to kabhi na tumhe dil mein rakha tha aur na chaha tha woh to jhootha, vishya-vikaari, bahanebaaz ladka tha. Ab ya to usey koi aur ladki mil gayee hai ya uski shadi taya ho rahee hai. Deepti beti, usey dimaag se nikaal kar bahar karo aur jeevan mein dobara aise galati kabhee na karna nahin to phir lut jaogi.
Aman Singh: Namaste Swami ji I had no intention of insulting you. I was just trying to find out the motive behind the money being asked for. The words have been deleted. I believe you, but is’nt it your responsibility also to see that nobody takes undue advantage of your reputation.If your disciple has added the word donation then some amount must have come in your bank account. From your answer i guess that you have not asked for any account of that amount.
Well i think the mere fact that my question is not published in your Q&A section clearly shows the intention of your disciples. Regards.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. You have stated that the word donations have been deleted, it is I think enough to satisfy you, please. Secondly, donation has been advised in all the four Vedas, even Rigveda mantra 8/6/48 especially states that if there is any learned of Vedas and Ashtang yoga philosophy, then King should donate to him, four camels loaded with gold, though, I have never asked for any donation and have never printed even a single slip of donation etc., but if my disciple has asked for donation, I think it is under Vedic culture, preached by God. Donation becomes poison if it is misused and my disciples I believe has never misused it. Even first two- three books costing about two lakhs Rupees were printed independently by him, so, I always advise everyone.
“ Bura jo dekhan main chala Bura na miliya koi
jo dil khoja apno, mujhsa bura na koi.”
2. Kabira khada bazar mein, sabkee mange kher.
Na kahu se dosti, na kahu se bair.
i.e., Kabir Das says that he is living in the public and pray God for the well being of all human beings. He adds that he is living in the public day and night at a stage where neither he has friends nor enemy (so we must apply the said preach in our life).
3. Kabira teri jhonpadi gal katiyon ke pas,
Karenge so bharenge tu kyun bhayo udas.
i.e., Kabir Das ji states he is residing in a hut nearby butchers but still he remains always happy and worship God because he knows that everybody have to face the result of his bad deeds in the shape of sorrows personally i.e, he who does sin he only has to bear its bad results awarded by God himself and not others. So what is the use of criticizing others.
This site is meant only to spread Vedic knowledge and not for misuse. My disciple requested me several times to open this site but is always refused being busy in my daily spiritual routine. After several months at last he made me to open this site. Thereafter really I have been also feeling personal pleasure and peace to satisfy the readers and think about the blessings of Almighty formless God that He inspired me to serve the people and he has been always given me the power due to which I always think to serve the mankind. May God give me the mental and physical power alongwith His blessings to discharge my duties to the entire satisfaction of Almighty God and the human being. I think you’ll also be satisfied otherwise please write your any type of comments again.
My blessings to you.
