Deepak: Swamiji charan sparsh i will always follow ved’s way as you taught us, but still i would like to ask that i firmly beilve that we should not belive in janam patri etc, but somewhere i wan to ask that how come some pandit see janam patri and they say that in this age such person will get job or go abrod or will get good chance, or one will get married in such age and mostly so many times it happens,, like in my case few years back one pandit had told that i should stay away from share market any how, and really i tried so many times i always got loss.. i know you are busy , swamiji whenever u free please reply and excuse me to ask this kind of question but it will give benifit to so many persons your son Deepak
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. I appreciate your views to follow the eternal Vedas’ path because in Vedas, janampatri, teva etc., have not been mentioned, so the said matter is unauthentic. Yes, as you have told that “Mostly so many times, it happens”, is correct. I mean to say, in few case it happens but in more than ninety nine percent cases, it does not happen. So, it is clear that they tell on their own prediction and also their prediction is not based on eternal knowledge of Vedas. Their cases are on guess work. When they in addition tell some treatment/means to avoid mishappenings, it is further surprising that how a person can go against the law and order of Almighty God. I mean to say that our sorrows and happiness are based on our previous lives’ bad and good deeds respectively and the said sorrows and happiness are awarded by Almighty God based on the deeds. Then, how a person alone has any power to tell any means to not to face the sorrows. However, it is further law and order of God in Vedas that sorrows, problems, difficulties and death etc., are destroyed by a devotee who follows the eternal Vedic path and he only gets long, happy life.

Similar is the case of your share market. Such pandits, from the present happenings, guess about the share market and tell the individual accordingly. Otherwise, in Vedas gambling, drinking, non-vegetarian etc., are strictly prohibited and matter of share market has not been mentioned in Vedas. So it is totally unauthentic. Therefore who can predict about share market etc., only those can predict who do not know the eternal Vedic culture. Again, my blessings to you, my son.

AKL: Pujya Gurudev, Sadar Pranam Does VEDAS mention about the aahar (food) first eaten in beginning by the 4 Rishis and by other human beings later was the knowledge of food process given or is it a slow evolution from grains to chapati?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Vedas tell generally to all human beings to take vegetarian food like milk, curd, honey, vegetables, fruits, ghee, butter, flour, food grains etc. Yajurveda even tells the method to prepare vegetables, chapatti, juice, the method to make flour from rice, to prepare chutney, how to handle mixie(sil-batta, okhli etc.). Naturally, the four Rishis know all about the said food because every knowledge was generated by Almighty God in their heart.

Kiran R. Das: Namaste yogacharya charna sparsh. Why do we pray may his soul in rest(uss atma ko shanti dedo) some one passed away ? Because soul is pure ,eternal, out of illusion & divine qualities
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. No doubt, the soul is eternal, everlasting and is pure but soul takes body in the womb of mother, to face the good and bad deeds of previous lives. When soul gets body, he also gets five senses i.e., eyes, ears, nose tongue, skin along with mann and buddhi, through which soul gets attached to the materialistic articles of the world made of prakriti. Atharvaveda tells that the nature of the soul is “Parishvangdharmi” i.e., of attachment. Soul is attached to materialistic articles through senses and thus forgets his original shape of being eternal, immortal, everlasting, alive and being pure and hence the problem arises. For the said problem, he always remains in sorrows, depression, sickness and faces cycle of death and birth again and again which is also a great sorrow.
