Van: So you want to say that Krishna is not God?
Swami Ram Swarup: Those who consider him God, they go ahead and should go ahead but the learned of vedas know that Avtarwad is not promoted in vedas, so learned of vedas never accept avtarwad.
Anonymous: Namastey Swamiji! Thank you reply. Probably I didn’t put across my concerns in a better way. My concern is it making me depend on it. As far as my knowledge is concern we have solution to every problem in Ayurveda which doesn’t make us dependent on it for life long.
Looking for your help to solve this issue where in I don’t won’t to rely on something. Hope you understand and my concern. Regards
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste beta, parivar sukhi rahe. You are welcome, beta. Beta, I do not know any Ayurvedic doctor here to treat hair loss problem. You may seek there. My blessings are with you.
R Arvind: Swamiji During Creation, all beings, both animate and inanimate, are made by Asexual process., By God ACTING on the matter called as Prakriti.But at the same time, God infused Praanaa on all his First Creations right from a cell to planets, sun, moon, stars, etc.
Western Science now says even Stones can move and breathe . Stones also give knowledge in the form of C4 carbon dating. So, stones are also living organisms. So, my question is, is not Praana Pratishta already done by God directly on Rocks and Stones when they werr created either during the First Creation or subsequently? And if so, then the stones also have souls inside them waiting for salvation, is it not?
It is a different matter that Idol Worship, is prohibited, as per Vedas.
Thanks Swamiji, R.Arvind.
Swami Ram Swarup: During creation, all living beings are alive, created by non-sexual process. Sun, moon stones, water, air, planets and several other non-living matters are without prann(non-alive).
In this connection, I paste my article below:-
The creation is eternal and automatic. There is no date of creation of the following:
(A) Almighty God who is alive, immortal, formless, creates, nurses and destroys the universe. He never indulges in any maya, mahamaya, illusion and deeds (good or bad. Yajurveda Mantra 40/8 and Yog shastra Sutra 1/26 also refer)
(B) Soul: Soul is alive, the purest, away from sins etc. but illusion covers the soul due to which soul forgets his original form and hence remains in sorrows, problems etc.
C) Prakriti: Non-alive and has three qualities. i.e., Raj, tam, Satva. At a proper time, the power of God acts in prakriti and the universe is created. So the creation is eternal and automatic.
Raj, Tam and Satva are the three qualities of prakriti. When the said gunnas remain idle dormant i.e., do not work, then combination of these three gunnas(qualities) in dormant stage is called prakriti and this time is called “final destruction” of the universe. When an appropriate time comes, the creation is to be started again. Then the power of God works in the above three gunnas i.e., in the prakriti and immediately the creation starts. Rajo gunn is a sign of sensuousness etc., Tamo gunn signifies laziness and sato gunn signifies ego, pride. Our human body is also made of the said three gunnas.
Vedas tell that there are three eternal/immortal matters- first: Almighty God, second: souls, third: prakriti. Almighty God creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates it. The said process of creation is eternal/immortal/everlasting. Almighty God creates the universe from prakriti. When the raj, tam and satva gunnas of prakriti remain idle (dormant condition/inactive) then creation does not take place. At an appropriate time, a power of Almighty God acts in prakriti (i.e., in Raj, tam and satva gunnas). Immediately the process of creation starts and the first matter of prakriti is made which is called –Mahat i.e., mind; from Mahat- ahankar is made, from ahankar panch (5) tan matrayein, from panch (5) tanmatrayein, panch (5) mahabhoot are created. From panch mahabhoot, the entire matter of universe i.e., Sun, Moon air, water, our bodies, bodies of other living beings etc., are created. The whole creation is thus created from prakriti and remains still (in active) like a statue. This creation is called non-sexual creation. In the said creation, the young human bodies are created which are neither old nor babies. Then by the power of God, in the said bodies, breathing system (prann vaayu) starts operating. At last, God enters into the universe and immediately all the humans and other living beings become alive and start functioning. Similarly, the non-alive matters like Sun, moon, earth, air, water etc., start their respective functions.
Creation, Science, worldly matters etc., is not possible until the same is created by someone. Secondly, knowledge is attained when knowledge is imparted by someone.
Rigved mantra 10/129/ 1-6 throw light about creation that at that time, there was nothing and no living beings did exist. So there was no learned acharya who could give the knowledge to the newly created living beings like parents who educate the children to make them able to speak language and to know about the matters like crow, animals, chapati, ghee, sun, moon i.e., all matters of the world. See, if a newly born baby is managed to live in dense jungle and nursed well but he is not given education about the worldly matters etc. i.e., mathematics, science, animals, sun, moon etc., then even at the young age of 20-25, 30 years, he will not be able to speak any language and when he will be brought out of the cave of dense jungle and will be asked about the sun, moon, animals, birds before him, then he will not be able to reply because he was not given the said knowledge.
When we see towards sun, moon, air, space, human body etc. It is clearly understood that the said creation has not been made by any human being but Almighty God, from whom the knowledge of four Vedas emanates. In Vedas, the knowledge right from straw to Brahma has been mentioned. So in the beginning of non-sexual earth, the Vedas originated in the heart of four rishis: Agni, Vaayu, Aditya and Angira, and from the rishis the knowledge of science, deeds and worship along with every matter is being given to the public by which the public became educated scientist and wrote books, etc.
In Vedas as well as in fourth chapter of Yog Shastras of Rishi Patanjali, it is mentioned that those who do not believe in God are provided more and more facilities by nature and such people get spoiled etc.
On the contrary those who worship God, they naturally try to kill their desires and accordingly under the law, nature, help them to follow the true path to realize the God.
Anonymous: Guruji, Namastey ! This question is also regarding the previous question I asked about my son being allergic which you kindly answered, its due to kriyaman karm. Swamiji, just a little bit of confusion in my understanding, please forgive me. My son is very young. His allergy has been from the time of his birth. At what age does kriyaman karm begin? Please forgive me. Regards
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste beta. Beta Kriyamann karam begin right from childhood but if your son is suffering from allergy since the time of his birth then it is due to prarabdh.
My blessings to you all. My love to your son and I shower my blessings on him for early recovery.
