Anil: Namashkar guru ji , main +2 ka student hun or main pdhai me kamjor hun. Kya koi samadhan ho sakta hai ki main achee numbron se pass ho jaoon?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskarji. Student ka padai mein kamjoor hona is itself a sin. Student ka kaam brahamcharya rakhkar sehat ka dhyan dena aur kewal padna hai.
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, Prannayam, 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 Brahmacharya. 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- “Brahmacharya-Dukh Nivarak Divya Mani”.
How to obtain success as a student
A student must do hard study with firm mind to get success. However, ‘WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY’ AND IT IS ALSO SAID THAT “NEVER BECOME NERVOUS AND TRY, TRY, TRY AGAIN.”
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharge moral duties to get progress simultaneously in education, science and in spiritualism, do daily havan, to make contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and kill the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.
One must awake 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.
THE HARD STUDY DONE BY STUDENTS AND THEIR GOOD HEALTH WILL SURE GIVE THEM SUCCESS TO MAKE THEM A GOOD EARNING HAND. THE STUDENT MUST ALSO CHANT GAYATRI MANTRA DAILY.
Suri: Namaste Swamiji! One of my friend is having severe pain in her stomach for first time since two weeks. She is now admitted in the hospital, however doctor cant find out the whats wrong with her. If she eats something then pain is getting more. Please advice.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. You continue with medical treatment in addition you should make contact with local learned acharya to learn asan and prannayam. Practice of asan and prannayam will sure be fruitful for your friend’s health.
Ajay: Namaste Swamiji I have three questions , I will be grateful if you can enlighten a) When Soul is subtler than evenprakriti , then how does soul get jailed in gross human body , it can easily pass through the subtle and gross body , what is the mechansim that hold soul inside body ?
b) As per sanskrit logic , “an attrbute of a substratum is reflected in its action” by this logic , If GOD can see , hear , taste , smell then somewhere he has these qualities in him , then why is he not the object of our senses i.e, why is he not percievable ? basically , I am unable to understand the concept that an entity can see and here etc when these are not its inherent qualities..these senses and its qualities are unique to matter , then does GOD use matter to see and hear? please let me know … Regards. Ajay S.
Swami Ram Swarup: (a) Under the eternal and everlasting process made by God the soul enters the body of living being based on his previous lives’ good and bad deeds. Soul if has not attained the salvation remains always in binding due to his previous lives’ deeds which are to be faced in present life. So due to the effect of deeds the soul is not free, he is under binding and is under control of Almighty God. If the soul is not bound then he can cross human body etc. As a prisoner can’t cross the jail at his own. So, the soul is a prisoner due to the effect of his previous lives’ deeds. I also paste my article below:-
Idea of Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2, 3, 4
Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2, 3 we’ve been blessed with the human body to face the result of our previous lives’ deeds – good and bad, in the shape of happiness and sorrows. When we’ve to face bad deeds then naturally everybody says that it is our bad luck but mostly people do not think that God has done justice and the sorrows/problems given by God is the result of our said deeds. Further, the ved mantra 4 state that if a person makes contact with learned acharya of Vedas and yoga philosophy and becomes able to gain knowledge of Vedas and obey preach of Vedas then the effect of bad deeds is automatically destroyed and future becomes bright. Secondly, God helps those who help themselves. So, hardworking, devotion and dedication also makes future bright.
(b) God has unlimited powers whereas all living beings have limited power. You see, if a person sees, hear, experiences, smells, tastes etc., from his senses then it is sure that he will get the said experience from his senses in limitation. Who experiences? Here, the alive matter soul which resides in human body requires assistance of senses to get worldly knowledge and assistance of organs of action (karmendriyan) to do deeds. At the time of death, when soul gets out of body, he (soul) becomes unable to experience worldly knowledge in absence of senses and is unable to do deeds in the absence of organs. On the other hand, God is Almighty, He is Formless. Being Almighty He has all unlimited powers within Him. So, He needs no assistance of eye, ear or organs etc. So, He sees, hears, smells, tastes etc., without any senses.
Therefore God is not perceivable because He has no shape and secondly He is subtlest. He is so subtle that He resides in unseen air and most unseen soul also. Only the minutest/subtlest matter can be present within every matter whether smallest or largest. Yajurved mantra 40/4 already states the said divine quality of Almighty God that God is not seen or attained through our senses or organs etc. Chchandogya upnishad also states, “Tatsrishtva tadevaanupraavishat”
i.e., the Almighty God creates the universe, and after creating the universe enters therein, due to His nature of being Omnipresent.
Shwetashwaropnishad also states “Devatmashakti Swagunnairnigoodham”
i.e., the God is hidden in the universe due to His own divine quality.’ It concludes that the Formless, Almighty, Omnipresent God Who creates, nurses and destroys the universe, cannot be seen through human senses. As is also stated by Yogeshwar Sri Krishna Maharaj in Bhagwad Geeta shloka 11/8 that Oh! Arjun, you cannot see me with your corporal eyes.
