Shobha: Tell me about my future and health
Swami Ram Swarup: Future is in our hands and health is also maintained by maintaining Brahmacharya, daily morning walk, light exercise and taking nutritive food. Future is made when a person works hard and also follows Vedic path.
Gopalakrishnan: When you are talking in terms of 1 Arab, 86 crore years, you are still putting a time limit..since God is beyond time and the creator himself, my understanding is that there cannot be a a specific time, when God passed on the Vedas to the four rishis…Or, is the time in years mentioned anywhere in the Vedas themselves?
Swami Ram Swarup: According to Vedas, time never stops. Even during final destruction, it is counted. However, God is always above all. The origin of Vedas is eternal, automatic and everlasting. Atharvaeda also tells about the time. When new creation starts then time is calculated.
Ashwin: Swamiji,my pranams to you.I have some doubts regarding free-will and fruits of action. If A kills B,then we can say A has done it by it’s will. Can we say that B has faced it’s fruit of it’s past action given by God or just that A alone is responsible for the death of B? What are the meanings of these names: Ashwin,Viswesh, Arvind, Arun? Thank you.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yajurveda mantra 7/48 states that we all human beings are free to do good or bad deeds but results are awarded by God Himself in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively. I paste here my article as under:-
Three types of Deeds
There are three types of deeds (karmas) – sanchit, prarabhadh and kriyamann. Suppose one soul has to take birth (body). It means he has to face total number of deeds of his all previous lives and these deeds are called sanchit karmas but sanchit deeds are huge/unlimited and cannot be faced in one life. So the karmas which can be faced in one life are called prarabhadh (luck-destiny). So God has not made our luck at His own but Almighty God has considered the deeds which we have already done.
Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clarifies that human being is free to do any deed good or bad but God only awards the result. Now the balance deeds from sanchit deeds will be counted in the next life. Now the deeds which we do in our day today present life are called kriyamann.
If we do pious deeds according to Vedas, shastras and holy books and based on pious preaches of Rishi, Muni/learned saints then our all sanchit deeds are burnt and we can get salvation. Human beings are free in the matter of doing deeds good or bad. But result will be awarded by God. So we must worship and do pious deeds under guidance of a learned Guru. One should go always ahead for hard working, pious deeds, worship to make future bright himself. One should always work hard towards a right path.
Worship does not mean that we are free to discharge only our family duties, education, etc., but rather it is a sin. We have to get progress in both way simultaneously i.e., spiritualism and worldly progress i.e., science, education, duties towards family etc. God creates the universe according to His eternal law framed in Vedas which are always unchangeable and unchallengeable. So we have to follow the law of God always to get long happy life.
Study of above karma’s theory would reveal that we are also free to do present karmas’- good or bad. As regards matter regarding A, who kills B, it is A’s present sin. Atharvaveda states that when Almighty God wants to kill any living being, God kills through earthquakes, cyclones, accidents, floods etc., they all being His “Yamdoots” . The meaning of Ashwini – first nakshtra amongst 27 , Arvind – lotus(kamal) , Vishnu and Arun – red colour, morning time
Ayush: Swamiji,i want to ask you what is the meaning of the verses of Rigveda 10.61.5 to 10.61.7.I go some book that translated by some western scholar vulgarly and that disturb me. So, I will be grateful if you tell the actual meaning of verse.
Swami Ram Swarup: Will be replied later.
