Manishankkar: Pranam swamiji IF SOMEONE GETS IMMENSE WEALTH IN HIS LIFE WITHOUT DOING ANY KARMA ONLY BEING BORN ON PROSPEROUS FAMILY .WHAT IS THE LOGIC BEHIND THIS THEORY PLEASE TELL ME IN DETAIL. THANKS.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2,3 states that God gives us the human body to face the result of previous lives’ good and bad deeds in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively. That is why, in one case, a baby takes birth in a rich family or as a prince of kingdom and in other cases, babies are born in poverty etc. Secondly, the deeds done in present life are to be born in next birth. In this connection, I paste my article below:-
IN THIS BIRTH NO SUBH KARMA BUT ENJOYING LUXURIOUS LIFE
The peace it is a result of previous lives’ good deeds that the lady is enjoying wealth. But, you see, at the time of enjoying such wealth, in the absence of worship and good manners naturally, the pious deeds are not being added, as a result, the store of good deeds is being minimized day by day.
When the effect of pious deeds gets exhausted completely one day, the person will have to face the sorrows. We’ve the example of Ravanna, Kansa and Duryodhan etc., who enjoyed all matters of world but one day, they had to repent when the effect of previous lives’ deeds ended. So, we should judge our lives’ deeply whether we worship and make our character good to please Almighty God, Who showers His blessings with a long, happy life on us.
So, we should start doing pious deeds like worship and control over our senses, mind and intellect to refrain from sins, to earn the good effect of pious deeds i.e., punnya which only helps us in this life as well as in future births.
This birth, in the shape of human beings is blessed by God, to know present and future rebirths and main motto of this life is to attain salvation by following Vedic path.
Shouting on parents etc., is naturally a sin, which is to be faced by the wrong- doer and if a person gives respect and serves parents/elders naturally, he’ll get good award in return, though it may take time but fundamental laws of God are unchangeable. So, the person will sure get award.
Ajit: Shree Swami ji Ram Ram. I am 47 year old and I want to know Hanumanji deeply and also want his blessing and your guidance for talking Hanumanji face to face how I can do
Swami Ram Swarup: Aapko mera ashirwad, sukhi raho. Vedas tell us to worship only one Formless, Almighty, Omnipresent God Who never takes birth/avtar etc., and Who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. So, I cannot say about the worship of Hanumanji. However, he was a great warrior, brahmachari, he studied four Vedas, he was a yogi and has several divine qualities.
Ankush: How we do meditation? How we control our mind during meditation?
Swami Ram Swarup: Matter of meditation is the 7th tedious stage of Ashtang Yoga which is mentioned in Vedas. So, nobody can know about meditation truly until he has done hard practice of first 6 parts of Ashtang Yoga viz., Yam, Niyam, Asan, Prannayam, Pratyahaar, Dharnna under guidance of learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yoga. So, you can please seek a learned acharya for the same.
