J S B: Chransprash Swami ji, I ordered some of your books few days back and was expecting reply from your side to get payment details (such as postal charge etc.). But I got the books and CDes directly! I can understand these books , CDes and your each word are precious and can not counted in form of money. I read Vedmandir website and it gives revolutionary move to my search of TRUTH(God, me). I had great desire to do every thing for my country, I worked hard two years in this direction, then I thought what I can do for other if they do not have willing to improve and was confused i.e. If God want good society, just change every body mind like Ghandi ji and every thing would solve just on one click. Then from last two year trying hard to realise truth. At last with God Marcy I got this website and now the illusion are removing with the light of your written knowledge. I have decided to live my life as per Veda. I am busy this time to discharge family duties but have complete faith in God Justice and believe soon will get chance to sit under your fit to listen Veda. I have transferred Rs. X to vedmandir through Internet banking as this time I can not manage more than this. But I have strong desire to use my whole life in this holy path. Please inform me if you have any plans to come to Pune.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my son. Your views are highly appreciated and I am also thankful to you to send Rs. X for the books and Cds. If I am not mistaken, you have sent more money than due. In Yajurveda mantra 22/22, there is a prayer that Oh! God, may our country be blessed with learned acharya to spread knowledge; young, brave persons to save the country; the hard-working agriculturists to grow sufficient food-grains to feed each citizen of the country and the people who can serve the human-beings. Nowadays, there is requirement of learned acharya of vedas to spread the Vedic knowledge to create more learneds, brave persons and hard working agriculturists because knowledge is only gained when it is given by any learned otherwise no one can become learned, honest, hard worker etc., in any field. Vedas give complete knowledge of all fields like science, agriculture, married life, pious deeds, animal husbandry, engineering, technology, atomic energy etc. So, we must serve the country to first spread the knowledge of Vedas everywhere as was in the ancient times. As a result, India was adorned with the title of “Vishwaguru” i.e., learned acharya of entire world and “Sone Ki Chidiya” i.e., Golden Bird.
So, please try to be learned and thereafter try to spread the knowledge of Vedas, as much as you gain, while discharging all family duties and continue to gain Vedas knowledge for whole of your valuable, long life. Though, I am very busy in spiritual routine deeds and writing books yet whenever I will come to Pune, then sure I will come to you, also.

Swami Ram Swarup: Beti chhotti se chhotti bhi buri aadat jeevan ko barbad kar deti hai jaise ki Vedon mein bhi kaha hai ki tat mein manah shivsankalpamastu arthat hey! Parmeshwar mera mann sadaa achhey vicharo wala hi ho. Mere mann mein kabhi bhi koi bhi gandaa vichar na aane payey.Isleiy kaha hai ki hansi mazaak mein bhi koi kabhi jhoot tak na bole. Jeevan mein koi bhi achha kaam karna mushkil nahi hai keval mazboot irada evam mehnat karne ki bhavna honi chahiye. Jo insaan aalasi hota hai uski bhagwan kabhi sahayta nahi karta. Aapne padaa hi hoga God helps those who help themselves arthat Ishwar unki madad karta hai jo apni madad apne aap karta hai. Bhav yeh hai ki Ishwar ya main aapki madad Kya kar payengey yadi aap apni madad apne aap nahi karengey. Ishwar ka kanoon yeh hai beti ki guru evam Ishwar bachon ko theek marg par chalne ki shiksha dete hain aur jo bachey theek marg par chalet hain aur buraee ko theek karne ki koshish karte hain aur vo buraee hamesha ke liye choot jati hai Isley aagey badon, dhaeraye rakho har buraee ko chodne ke liye, Us Buraee ka naash karne ke liye aur paap se bachne ke liye pakka Irada karke mehnat karo. Mann ko control karo. Jab Buraee aayey to mann ko kaho ki buraee nahi karni hai. Mann mein bura vichar aane hi na do. Iske liye baar-baar koshish karti raho. Ishwar tumhari madad karega aur mera bhi ashirwad hai tumhe ek din tum vijay prapt kar logi.
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.
The Gayatri mantra is as follows —
OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NHA PRACHODYAT
Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.
Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three names of God are built,Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which Hiranyagarbha, Vaayu and Tejas names occur andMa = makaar from which Ishwar, Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigveda mantra 1/164/46 says God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained.
VIRAAT= Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus Viraat is the name of God. Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti. Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form. Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of finaldestruction is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.
AGNI = From dhatu, ” ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its meaning is — He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., omniscient. I.e., knows even every atom of universe and even beyonduniverse too. He who is to be known, to be gained and worshippable. So agni is the name of God.
VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is in whom the universe is entering or He is entering the universe. So being omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.
HIRANGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.
VAAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vaayu word is made. Its meaning is He who holds, gives life and destroys and the mightiest amongst all. So the name of God is Vaayu.
TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made who is self made and self-enlighted and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take light from anywhere else but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken, unobstructed/unproduced and eternal shape of light is Almighty God and not sun, moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.
ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and has unlimited wealth, fortune and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.
ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name is Aditya.
PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who knows every Manner and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it not out of place to mention that illusion can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.
BHUHU= “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe, is most beloved, even more than Pran i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.
BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow, and with whose contact, the soul removes his all sorrow. So the name of God is Bhuvaha.
SWAHA= i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.
SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.
DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.
VARENYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme and acceptable for worship.
BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable English word of Sanskrit word, “SUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)
TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.
DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because
YAHA = the God
NAHA = our,
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.
Devendra: Can rahu bad effect is avoided by gayatri mantra? Regards.
Swami Ram Swarup: Gayatri mantra protects us from all worries, problems etc. However, Rahu is not a problem because it has not been mentioned in vedas. So, learned of vedas do not accept navgrah pooja, mangal dosh, rahu dosh, Pitr dosh, kaal sarp yoga etc.
