Vinay Arya: A so-called saint, Sant Rampal ji Maharaj has alleged that Maharashi Dayanand was addicted to bhang. Arey aisey dushton koi tou khatma karo? Maharshi per aarop kya aap sahan kar saktein?
Swami Ram Swarup: You see, several criticisms are passed on to Sri Ram and Sri Krishna maharaj, Yudhishthir, mata Sita etc., but you know truth prevails. Swami Dayanandji was a great Rishi who awakened the people about learning eternal knowledge of Vedas. He also awakened the people to be away from blind faith.
Maharishi kee satyata aur dayaa kai baton se pataa chalti hai. Main thode mein hee kahunga ek baar Swami Dayanandji, nadi kinare dhyan mein baithey they ki do agyani aadmiyon nein unhein pakad kar nadi mein phainkane ki koshish kee. Dayanandji nein dono ko bagal mein dabaya aur un dono ko lekar nadi mein chchalang lagaa dee. Swamiji khud bahar aa gaye aur bahar aakar jab dekha kee woh dono aadmee doobne lagey hain aur mar jaayeingey tab nadi mein phir koodkar unhein bacha liya . issee prakkar, jis aadmi nein unhein jahar diya tha ussey faurn bhaga diya ke tu bhag jaa warna duniya tujhe maar dalegi. Iske baad main itna hee kahunga kee Yajurveda mantra 2/23 mein kaha ki jo ved aur vidwanon ka tyag kar deita hai, Ishwar bhee unhein dukh deney ke liye tyag deita hai. Doosra kee Atharvaveda mein kaha hai ki Vidwaanon aur vedon ki ninda karne wale ko Ishwar kathor dand (sazaa) deta hai.
Vishal Kumar: Namaste Guruji, I, humbly would like to ask that You have said in a reply of question as I read your replies on website that Shri Krishan had two wives and in other reply you have said he had only one wives. Although I think Krishna was a scholar of Veda and He had only one wife named Rukmani. Please clarify your views on the subject.
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, one wife named Rukmanni of Sri Krishna Maharaj has been stated by Vyasmuniji in Mahabharat which is authentic. But other wife Satyabhama has been told in Puranns etc., which is unauthentic. So, in reality Sri Krishna Maharaj had only one wife named Rukmanni.
