Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Main theek hoon, beti.
(A)If consciousness means soul then soul is immortal and pure. Soul resides in the human-body in eyes, throat and heart in awaken, dreaming stage and sound sleep stage respectively.

(B) No, please. Rigved gives knowledge of all the matters of universe like sun, moon, water, medical science, physics, chemistry etc.

(C) At the time of beginning of the earth, the knowledge of four Vedas emanates directly from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis in Divine Sanskrit Language(Rigved mantra 10/181/1,2 refer). So, on the earth, first time, everybody spoke Divine Sanskrit Language.

(D) Pannini ji was a Rishi and he wrote Mahabhashya and Ashtadhyayee , the two said famous Vyakarann Shastra granths. He studied Vedas and after hard practice of Ashtang yog, attained Samadhi and then wrote the said two books.

(E ) Yes.

(F) No please, within the Vedas.

(G) There are two meanings of atma. When it is used to create, nurse and destroy universe etc., and several other divine deeds, knowledge, power etc., then it is called God and when it is used that he faces the result of previous lives deeds, several yonies based on karmas, faces sorrows and happiness based on karmas etc., then here it means that meaning of atma is soul. So, God is different from soul. Definition of atma is quoted above.

(H) In Atharvaved there is no mantra which indicates about Surya upnishad. Sun is a matter made of Prakriti and God is swayambhu i.e., cannot be made from any matter and God has no mother and father. Infact, He is like our mother and father. Description of both (Sun and God) is very well mentioned in vedas.

(I) Human heart is the wealth of every human being because till such time, it palpitates,life of a human exists otherwise death.

Secondly, the realization of Divine light of God is realized by a Yogi in the heart.

(J) Memory is based on maintaining brahmacharya and taking nutritious food and water. Single water debarring the food will do nothing.

(K) Energy is maintained in the human body both physical and mental energy from which a person becomes capable to think, right, read, work, earn, laugh, cry etc.

(L) thoughts in the shape of Chitta Vritti (faculty which receives knowledge from five senses and passes the same to intellect is called Chitta and Chitta stores the effect of various karmas to be faced by soul in future at a proper time) exist on chitta.

(M) Sorry.

(N) Light carries water.

(O) No, please.

(P) No, please. Every cell in human body is applied with the pave of soul only which resides in human-body.

(Q) Human heart does not receive information. Five senses and perceptions receive knowledge from worldly matter and send the same to mind. Mind sends the same to intellect and intellect to soul.

(R) Here Brahma means formless, Almighty God Who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. Rigved mandal 10, sukta 129, mantra 1-7 states that the formless God creates all human beings and he originates first time, the knowledge of four Vedas in the heart of four Rishis. Rishis further educate Brahma with vedic education. Then Brahma spreads it to Manu and Manu to others. So, first creation in the shape of man is not Manu.

(S) Soul does not choose body at his own but based on good or bad deeds, the soul under the administration of Almighty God enters the body which can be of human or of other living beings.

(T) Om is not the sound of sun. It is pious name of God says Yajurved mantra 40/15.

(U) No doubt, love is power of universe when love is based within soul and is not physical charm or on wealth etc.

(V) No.

(W) Garud purann is not accepted by learned of Vedas, being against the Vedas, so unauthentic.

(X) No, please, it is against the Vedas. In this regard, I paste my articles below:-

After death

Yajurved mantra 3/55, says, “DEVAIYAH JANAH NAH PUNAH MANAH DADATU” i.e., by blessings (preach and true education of Vedas) may learned Acharya give us next birth of human being so that we may again be able to learn the truth of Vedas and to get salvation. So one must always adopt true path by which he gets rebirth of human being to continue the real spiritualism to get salvation etc., because Atharvaved mantra 9/10/16 further says that human being who has done pious deeds and adopted true path they get pious human body in the next birth, otherwise soul gets the lowest/contemptible body, like animals, birds etc. Mantra is APAANG PRAANGETI SWDHAYAA GRIBHITAH AMARTYO MARTYENAA SAYONIHI. TA SHASHVANTA VISHUCHINA VIYANTA NYA NYAM CHIKYURN NI CHIKYURNYAM.

Soul according to its good or bad deeds(APANGETI) takes bodies of animals, birds, insects etc., and (PRANG) bodies of Rishis, Munis, i.e., (uuch Yoni) best bodies after leaving the present body. The soul (SWDHAYAA GRIBHITAH) duly attached with its own power of taking birth according to pious deeds and sins, enters other bodies (AMARTAYAH) though the soul is away from death, being immortal but after death of bodies, takes new bodies. These ideas of Vedas has very well been mentioned in Bhagwad Geeta shlok 2/20 wherein Yogeshwar Shri Krishna says (AJO NITYAH SHASHWATOAYAM PURAANNO NA HANYTE HANYAMANNE SHARIRE ) i.e., the soul is (AJAH NITAYAH SHASHWATOH) never takes birth and is eternal (NAHANYATE HANAYMANNE SHARIRE) in fact after death of body too soul is never dead being immortal. (TASHASHVANTA) this process of death and birth of bodies and souls is eternal.

(VISHUCHINA VYANTA) soul and bodies go far away to different directions [soul goes to Savita etc., {given below} according to Yajurved chapter 39 and then takes birth and gets another body and five elements of body go to space and are mixed within air, fire etc., according to Yajurved mantra 40/15] (ANYAM NICHIKYHU) many learned know about this fact (ANYAM NICHIKYHU) another who lack knowledge of Vedas, do not know the fact, i.e., we mostly know our body but not ourselves, i.e., soul. Death is sure i.e., the body will have to be cremated one day.

In Atharvaved mantra 8/8/11 ‘Yamdut’ means = ‘YAM’ means God, and ‘dut’ means storm, cyclone, flood, earthquake, heavy rains, etc., etc., in mantra the air is Yam. So when a soul is to leave the body then by the power of God, sutratma air enters the body and takes the soul out of it then goes to Savita, etc.

In 39th chapter of Yajurved the process of this cremation is mentioned. This process is also called as “NARMEDH YAJYEN”, “PURUSH MEDH YAJYEN” and “DAH KARAM” and “ANTEYESHATI KARAM”. Atharvaved mantra 10/8/26 says “YEH CHAKAR SAH JAJAR” means He (God) who makes the body, He destroys the same one day. Sense of Yajurved mantra 39/5 is that when the soul leaves the body then the soul wanders in so many places, takes another body according to its previous deeds (karmas). Yajurved mantra 39/6 says that the soul after leaving the body, on the first day goes to Savita (sun), second day agnihi (fire), third Vaayu (normal air), fourth Aditya, fifth chandrma (moon), sixth ritu (seasons), seventh marutah, eighth brihaspati (tiniest air), ninth mitrah (breathing), tenth varunah (udan air), eleventh indrah (electricity), twelfth Vishvedevah (in all divine qualities). Then, after wandering in sky, gets body according to previous deeds. So these twelve days are completed, then after 13 days the soul takes another body. Rigved mandal 10 sukta 135 says that normally soul after getting body faces the result of its past lives’ deeds and under influence of illusion (duly attracted towards illusion) does sins and again gets birth to face the sins. The soul is immortal and always separate from body. When an aspirant meets with a learned Acharya and gets spiritual education, then the fourth mantra says that the soul gets salvation.

QUALITIES OF SOULS (JEEVATAMA)

Soul is alive. Soul has to face the result of his deeds. Soul takes body of human beings, animals, birds, trees etc., according to deeds of past lives. Soul feels sorrow, happiness etc., through body. When soul leaves body, it feels nothing but carries all karma to be faced in next birth through his chitta’s (chitta) vritti (vritti).

Souls are innumerable but are constant in number having similar qualities like being pure, immortal, alive etc. Soul is infinitesimally small, is invisible. The bodies of all living beings contain souls.

Not God but soul has desire, hatred/malice, merriment, sufferings, attachment etc. While attracting itself towards materialistic articles made of prakriti soul forgets his original form. As a result, soul recognizes himself as body. This is the stage of soul being unwise.

“NA TAM VIDATH YA IMA JAJAANANYUDYUSHMAKAMANTARAM BABHOOVA,
NEEHAREINN PRAVRITA JALAPYA CHASUTRIP UKTHASHASCHARANTI.”
(RIGVED MANTRA 10/82/7)

(TAM) that God (NA) not ( VIDATH) known (YAH) who (EMA) all worlds (JAJANN) creates and (YAT) from you (ANYAT) separate from other souls(YUSHMAKAM) from you (ANTARAM) with in all (BABHOOVA) is (NIHAREINN) fog like smoke (YAT) that God (PRAVARITAHA) covered (JALAPYAHA) baseless discussion (ASUTRIPAHA) satisfied only in Prann [breathing system] (UKTHASHASAHA) only paying lip service (CHARANTI) deals or behaves.

Meaning: Like an invisible matter which is covered with fog similarly dealing in only lip service and indulging in baseless discussion and are satisfied in their breathing system, Oh! Man-woman, you do not know the God who creates the five matters/universe and the God who is separate from other souls and who is within all.

Offerings to departed soul

According to Yajurveda mantra 40/15, the last religious deed is daah karma (cremation) i.e., when dead body has been placed on pyre and burnt thereafter only the ashes are to be thrown in a flowing water. After that no deed is left to be done. However, Vedas tell that one should perform Yajyen. So, for the departed soul, we can only perform Yajyen every year which gives pious result and which is even the best worship of God. Next birth is totally based on our good or bad deeds as is also stated in Rigveda mantra 10/135/1 to 6. We are free to do good or bad deeds but the result is awarded by God as per Yajurveda mantra 7/48.

There is no other way to provide any offerings such as water, til, food, etc. to the departed souls as per Vedas. You see soul is totally dependent. Soul eats with mouth, sees with eyes, listen with ears, etc., and when whole body of the departed soul has been burnt on pyre and soul has taken next birth according to deeds then how the water , til or food can be taken by the departed soul. As stated above, after cremation, no deed is left to be done.

So pitr pooja, etc. is not according to Vedas. However, amongst five Yajyen –a daily Yajyen named Balivaishvadev Yajyen is performed in married life by the family. In the said Yajyen, a small portion of prepared food is placed on paper and is placed in open space where any bird/animal takes the same easily.

Anna Daan/Shradh to departed soul

Vedas are eternal knowledge which emanate direct from God at the beginning of every universe. Being the knowledge direct from God, each statement of Ved mantra is also eternal truth.

Thirty-ninth chapter of Yajurved states about death. The soul when leaves the human body remains under control of a divine air named “Sutratma vayu”. Mantras tell that after wandering unconsciously for thirteen days in the space and planets like Sun, moon, etc., soul comes again on this earth inside the vegetation. Then either the soul enters the male living being’s body according to pious deeds and sins through pores or is duly mixed within vegetation and taken by a male person. Then the soul takes rebirth through parents.

This process is an eternal truth. However, if soul is religious and has done hard tapasya then the soul gets salvation. Only soul has to face the result of previous lives’ deeds through living being’s body. Since soul is alive whereas body is non-alive matter. So body does not face the result of deeds. When soul has gone out of body then how the soul will see, hear, taste, smell or touch or will be benefited of any pious deed etc.? therefore Vedas do not tell about the present system of shradh etc.

However, the pious deeds done to remember the departed soul by means of devotion or organising the holy Yajyen with Ved mantras, its result never goes in vain and the family is benefited.

Departed soul never meets again please. Even departed soul, when take rebirth, forgets every event of his previous life. As regards dreams Atharvaved states that dreams of departed soul are not good so it is in your interest and welfare that you do not see dreams.

(Y) No doubt, charity and donation is important but Vedas tell if a person does not follow Vedic path, does not make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yog then his donation will not provide peace and salvation etc. So, first of all, person must make contact with learned acharya to follow Vedic path as quoted above. Then his aahuti/ donation will be meaningful.

(Z) No, please Arya means who follow Vedas and rightly adopts non-violence.
