Swami Ram Swarup: STUDENT LOSING CONCENTRATION
Concentration is not made on mind, but mind has to be concentrated on particular point or subject etc. It requires practice of Yam, Niyam, Asan, Pranayaam, Pratyahar, Dharnna and Dhyan then one attains Samadhi. In this path, guidance of a spiritual master who knows Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy is needed. Holy name jaap of God helps a lot. I have written a book on Yoga which can be sent on receipt of your postal address. However, personal guidance as stated is essential. It is a moral duty of a student to concentrate on hard study and to look after his health. Avoid bad society always concentrate on your Brahamcharya. Awake early in the morning and after bath-brush etc., do holy name jaap of God at least for fifteen minutes. Go for morning walk and light exercises daily. Take plenty of water i.e., 15-20 glass in a day. Always respect your parents, elders and teachers. Must be soft spoken, Avoid TV to see bad scenes, films etc. This all will help you to concentrate in you study. Whatever, you study and learn, try to write on rough book a lot without seeing books etc. Please refer to the book- “Brahamcharya-Dukh Nivarak Divya Mani”.
Student not getting success
Manu has quoted ten signs of dharma (eternal religion) which is only made by God in Vedas. It’s first sign is Dhriti i.e., patience, tolerance. So one should always be brave and never be demoralised. Then only he/she will be called religious person. Secondly, a student must try, try, try again. He has mainly two duties to perform- First to attain Brahamcharya and look after his health. Second is he must do hard study. Now, the less or more marks also be the result of our deeds which become obstacle inspite of hard study. So to overcome the situation we must always remember God. If you are in home with your parents then you must daily do havan with Gayatri mantra and chant Gayatri mantra along with its meaning before going to bed. If in hostel then you should chant Gayatri mantra in mind with its meaning daily both times. It will be beneficial to you.
A student must always be away from bad societies. He must also do daily light exercises in the morning, must take plenty of water daily i.e., at least fifteen glasses of pure water a day which will help the student to overcome the said sins and to make full concentration on his studies.
Every student must be brave and not coward. He must be a hard worker. So you must always struggle and do hard work to get success in life. And the word that student has become extremely distressed in life should not be used. Please try, try again to get success.
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.
One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.
Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.
After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.
Alvin Lal: Pranaam Guruji, I have some science questions, which I hope you can clarify, please… A)What is the true scale of time? Vedas mentions time as eternal, so what did the ancient rishis based their measurement of time upon before years, months, days, hours, seconds was conceived?
B) How may dimensions is the world /space atmospehere we are living in consist of, 2, 3, or 4 or possibly more ? What does the Vedas say about this ? If there are 4 or more dimensions how to explain this?
C) Is the atom a particle or wave, research from scientists are now stating that rather then original thoughts of particle, it may be more of a wave now ? Is the atomic model correct as per Vedas?
D) What does Vedas say about the Higgs Boson particle, also known as the god particle ? If it is proven The Higgs will have a mass about 125 times the mass of the proton, making it as heavy as a medium-sized nucleus, and it will “fill in” the last missing piece of a puzzle involving the solution of one of the great outstanding problems in physics of the 20th century: the origin of all mass. If the properties of the Higgs are confirmed, the picture of fundamental particle forces will have been completed. That picture is known as The Standard Model.
Is this particle prakirti as Vedas states? Bahaut Dhanaywaad Guruji… Alvin
Swami Ram Swarup: A). My blessings to you. Time was being calculated from sun. Sun makes years, months, days, hours and seconds.
B). There are ten deeshyan stated in Vedas. Answer is lengthy and therefore cannot be briefed here.
C). Atom is a minute particle possessing the characteristics of waves. Atomic model is correct as per Vedas. But its detailed knowledge still requires deep study of Rigveda.
D). you see, the present scientists declare their own name of a matter like atom, electron, proton etc., but the said names are not mentioned in Vedas. If Higgs-Boson particle is related to atom then definitely it is made of prakriti but itself is not prakriti.
Alvin Lal: Pranaam Guruji, Scientists are saying that the universe is constantly expanding. They can tell this by measuring the distance between two distant objects in the universe with time. IS this possible according to Vedas and if so what is the universe expanding into? Also after creation in Vedas does it state that all the created brahmand’s (galaxies) were together and they are now getting further apart? Bahaut Dhanaywaad guruji.. Alvin
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. At every moment changes in each matter of universe takes place. As a result Brahmaand may expand in shape or decrease. But the matter as a whole will always remain constant.
