Anonymous: Pranaam guruji, I recieved your book Vedas a divine light 3 and your Ramayan CD Vol1. It was superb! . To that extent I have made some donation so that more CD’s on Valmiki ramayan can be created and published. Bahaut Dhanaywaad..
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. I appreciate your views on Valmiki Ramayan which is a Vedic culture written by Rishi Valmikiji. At that time, the present sects did not exist so entire world used to listen to Vedas and the said culture. Now, I thank you for your donation and I would try to release the next Cd as early as possible.
Basant: How many upanishads are authentic? Maharshi dayanand quoted sentences in satyarth prakash other than 10 main upanishads.
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, please. Learned of Vedas accept only eleven upnishads whereas total number of Upnishads are 108.
Basant: What is the age of Maharshi patanjali, Maharshi kanaad and Maharshi gautam? I heard that Maharshi vyaas wrote a commentary on patanjali’s yog sutra. Is it true?
Swami Ram Swarup: Sorry, Ages of Rishis quoted by you is not known, please. But, it is definite that mostly Rishis crossed hundred years of age, due to maintaining their Brahmacharya, tapasya and simple life style. Yes, Vyas Muni has written commentary on Patanjal Yog Darshan but it is not yet clear in the view of some learned acharyas whether Vyas Muni was the same who wrote Vedanta shastra and Mahabharata epic. Mostly the learned say that Vyas Muniji only wrote the said two holy books and not any other book like Bhagwad purann etc.
