Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Basic principle in Vedas teaches us that the sorrows in the shape of several types of troubles like illness etc., comes due to the result of our own deeds done in previous lives’ and in the present life, we have to face them. Dear daughter, the divine qualities of dharma (moral duties) are ten.
TEN SIGNS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Our Vedas, Shastras, Upnishads, Geeta, every true granth and ancient Rishis have first advised not to be demoralized, at any step of our lives. Manusmriti shlok 6/92 states ten pious qualities in man/woman who is religious/virtuous. Those are-
1. Dhriti (patience).
2. Kshama (forgiveness to those who are in pitiable condition).
3. Dum (control on senses, perceptions and mind so as to refrain from doing sins).
4. Asteya (not to steal).
5. Shauch (purity-external i.e., food, place of living body, surroundings etc., should be clean).
Second purity is (internal) regarding purification of mind and intellect by virtue of following Vedic path wherein daily yajyen, havan with ved mantras, listening of Vedas, doing name jaap of yoga, practice of ashtang yoga is done. We must never think about bad subjects. Our thoughts must always be pure, then only will we ever be happy.
6. Indriya Nigraha (i.e., to control one’s organs of action and perceptions (sense) as well as mind (mann) and channelizing them towards pious deeds following true path of Vedas.
7. Dhee (i.e., to make the intellect pure for which above quoted Vedic path is required to be adopted. Intellect becomes pure by attaining Vedic knowledge. So, one should try to listen Vedas as to obey the same.
8. Vidya (there are two matters- vidya and avidya. Yog shastra sutra 2/5 states four signs of avidya-
(i). Anitya-Nitya:- If we consider the destructive matters of the world including our body as eternal yet due to indulgence in avidya, we try to gather worldly articles and keep them forever.
(ii). Ashuchihi- Shuchi:- To consider impure matter as pure. For instance, the human body is not pure as it contains excretory materials like sweat, urine, filth in eyes, ears, nose etc., yet, we love our body and do not use it to do true worship of God, explained in four Vedas.
(iii). Dukhaha- Sukhaha:- In the absence of the worldly as well as spiritual education people always remain unsatisfied, worried and sorrowful. But when they meet anyone, they state that they are fine etc. here, the person tries to show that he is fine/alright. That is, in reality, he is sad. But shows as if he is fine etc.
(iv). Anatma- Atma:- Soul is eternal and never takes birth but takes body in the womb of adorable mother. When any death occurs everybody starts saying in ignorance (indulgence in illusion) that man-woman etc., has died. Infact, soul comes out and the body as quoted above is already destructive. Then why do we people weep. It is due to lack of knowledge of Vedas.
The reverse knowledge of above quoted avidya is called vidya i.e., to think about reality only and not illusion.
9. Satya:- to be truthful. Shastras state- mansa, vacha, karmanna i.e., true thoughts must always be in mind. Similarly, true speech must be there and the action must always be true. So, accordingly in the matter of faith i.e., God, listen eternal truth, think truth and our action in the shape of worship must be true. You know, God is eternal truth. He has blessed us with eternal knowledge of four Vedas, so until and unless we listen to Vedas and obey them, how would we be able to think/listen, speak and act in true manner.
10. Akrodh:- always to avoid anger which is the most harmful for human-body. Several sins are committed when a person indulges in anger. Bhagwad Geeta states that he who indulges in anger, he will be destroyed very soon.
You see, the above ten pious signs of righteousness (Dharma) have been stated by Manu Rishi who did hard study of Vedas and practised Ashtang Yoga Philosophy mentioned in Vedas. Then only he became able to write Manusmriti, wherein above quoted ten signs of righteousness have been stated. So, is the case in respect if Sri Ram, Sri Krishna Maharaj, Yudhishthir etc., and their public.
So, first of all, I would advise you to avoid tension and saying that you are in mental state. Everybody must always be brave which is first sign of religious matter. I mean to say, he is religious person who by virtue of above quoted Tapasya has attained above quoted ten qualities of righteousness in his conduct, otherwise not.
So, try to listen to Vedas, which is eternal religious path made by God. Some religious books based on Vedas, can be sent from here, if you so desire. The books will be sent on the receipt of your postal address. It will enable you to understand Vedic philosophy.
So, he is the religious person who has patience (dhriti). Secondly, God preaches in Vedas that the said problems, sorrows can be destroyed if the person follows Vedic path and does daily worship of God. I therefore, advice you my daughter to destroy problems, you must do the following-
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.
The Gayatri mantra is as follows —
OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA
DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT
Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.
Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three
names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which
Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar,
Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigved mantra 1/164/46 says
God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained.
VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus
Viraat is the name of God. Rigved mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti.
Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form.
Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.
AGNI = From dhatu, “ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., Omniscient. That is, knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be
known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.
VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is He
in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being
omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.
HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base
of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.
VAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vayu word is made. Its meaning is
He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name
of God is Vayu.
TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made meaning He who is self
made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take
light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken,
unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun,
moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.
ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is
whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune
and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to
mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas
God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.
ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name
PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who
knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So
God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion
can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.
BHUHU = “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe,
is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.
BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow,
and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the
name of God is Bhuvaha.
SWAHA = i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is
holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.
SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.
DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.
VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme
and acceptable for worship.
BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable
English word of Sanskrit word, “SHUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)
TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.
DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because
YAHA = the God
NAHA = our,
DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)
PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)
“We meditate the God who is the base of lives’ of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration”.
Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things —-
Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.
Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.
Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.
HOW TO DO HAVAN
Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.
Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.
Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.
Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand’s finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajna. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.
In the end of hawan, please pray to God to fulfill your desires. I hope God will sure listen to you.
PROCEDURE OF CHANTING
Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.
Again, my blessings to you, my daughter.
In this connection ,one of my answer is pasted below-
First of all, one should have patience. One must always control one’s anger and other shortcoming. These are signs of great men/women. I hope you will take care. Secondly, if there is no sign of compromising the matter then still you should not leave job until you have been selected for another job. Suppose, you remain jobless even for a month, that will be a very bad period for you without money. I would advise you that a person only becomes happy when he gets progress both in spiritualism as well as in worldly pious deeds, science technology, agriculture etc., etc.
Above worship will give you peace, wealth, health and better future.
Again, my blessings to you, beti. I am sure that you will face problems with patience and happily.
