Falgun: Jai shree krishna guruji , I want to know about para and apara vidya. Can a normal person get it with chanting mantra in bramh muhart? What this vidya about?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste ji. To gain knowledge of materialistic articles only (science) after studying four vedas is called apara vidya and to gain knowledge and by following the said knowledge in daily life to realise God, from vedas, is called para vidya (spiritualism). When a normal person makes contact with learned Acharya of vedas to follow the vedic path then he attains the said both vidyas.
MeiKam: Dear Guruji, what is the proper age for performing Karnavedh Sanskar and Upanayan Sanskar? Thanks!
Swami Ram Swarup: Blessings beti. Both sanskars can be performed when a child enters 3rd year of age.
