Shiv: Parnam I was searching a teadher like you who can impart knowledge of Vedas. Thanx God I read some Q and A of some people in your column and found Vedas is really the eternal only one way to God but we have 18 puranas and where we have incarnations which is denied by Vedas as I read from your answers. It means we should not believe those “MATASYA, KURMA, RAM, KRISHNA, NARSIMHA. It is proved that GOD is all powerful then how possible that GOD(all powerful) cant come into being to show us the way. Please answer.
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, eternal knowledge of vedas which emanates direct from God which is a truth. As regards purann, Learned of Vedas do not accept. Therefore, mostly the matters in puranns are against the fundamental laws of Vedas. Actually, as said in Patanjal Yog shastra sutra 1/7 the proof of Ved mantras is required to prove the truth of any statement. As regards Purann, its study reveals that mostly the statements mention there in do not tally with the Vedas. Yet, this is democracy and whosoever recommend purann , he with his followers go ahead at his own.
Vedas totally deny about Avtarwad. As you know, Almighty God does not need any assistance or help to do His divine deeds etc. Needs means need of eye to see, ear to listen, tongue to taste/speak, mouth to eat, skin to touch. Leg to walk and hands to work etc. He was formless, is formless and will ever remain formless since He is ever unchangeable, when He is Almighty and when He has all powers and with those powers He can make understand everything without speaking, can see etc., then why would He require any senses, organs etc., and when He would depend on any senses, organs etc. Then how would He be called Almighty God?
To show us the way, there is eternal, unchangeable law of God that in the beginning of every universe, knowledge of four vedas emanates direct from Him (God) and with God’s power, is originated in the heart of four Rishis. God is Almighty and wants that the ancient four Rishis of non-sexual creation should know each ved mantras with its words-meanings and ideas etc., so, the rishis came to know everything. Further, the knowledge of vedas is spread by Rishi-munis and not by God. yet, the God inspires and helps those devotees who do hard deeds to understand vedas from spiritual master and practice of Ashtang yoga Philosophy etc. That is why, in Yog shastra sutra 1/26 – Rishi Patanjali states that God is the Guru of our ancient four Rishis of non-sexual creation. I also paste my article on Avtarwad.
God is only one who creates the universe and no other can create the universe except God. Please think deeply is any one except God empowered for creation, etc.? The pious qualities of God are unlimited whereas qualities of soul, which resides in human body, are limited. That is why He is God. This fact is also mentioned by Rishi Patanjali in his Yog shastra sutra 1/24, “KALEASHKARAMVIPAKASHYAIHI APRAMRISHTAHA PURUSHVISHESHAHA ISHWARAHA” i.e., He who is not indulged in any sorrows/sufferings (kalesh), in any kind of deed (karma) and result thereof (vipakya), He is supreme in souls and is called Ishwar (God), whereas, soul is indulged in all the said matters according to deeds done in previous, and in the present life. So this is also a difference between God and souls and therefore soul can never be God based on the different qualities.
Amongst unlimited qualities of God, few may be enumerated-that God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent and Almighty, beyond description, beyond imagination, and beyond calculation. Nobody on the earth can deny such qualities, but these qualities are to be discussed and considered deeply and he who does the same is called MUNI as per Vedas and shastras.
Let us think over one quality of God – Being Almighty. Almighty means God has all powers and thus God, to control the universe and to do any kind of deed for the same, can not be dependent on another, at any cost, being Almighty. Again shastras say, which is a true saying too, that there must be reason behind for any creation, matter etc. God is a reason to create the universe. Parents are the reason to give birth to a child. Ravana took Sita forcefully which became a reason for war between Shri Ram and Ravana etc. So as per Vedas there must be a reason of avtar and after studying eternal knowledge of Vedas and thinking deeply, there seems no reason to take avtar by Almighty God. As in Yajurveda mantra 2/26, so is in Shwetashwaropnishad shlok 6/8 wherein it is mentioned that there is no reason to form a God and thus God is also formless i.e., nobody can make God but God creates universe from non-alive prakriti. Secondly the said Upnishad says that the deeds of God of creation, nursing, and destruction of universe are eternal, natural, and automatic. So naturally God needs no avtar to destroy Kalyug, earth, or devils etc., being Almighty i.e., God has all powers and is independent. Not God but only His powers are enough to control, create, nurse, destroy the universe. That is why Upnishad says that God has no desire to create etc., but it is eternal and natural and this sort of desire is named “IKSHAN” and not desire to create, etc.
Suppose God has to kill a devil and He takes avtar and God kills the devils by arrow etc. It means God is not Almighty and independent because God has taken help of Avtar (Human body) and arrow, gun, etc., which is impossible.
This all I have told based on fundamental law of eternal knowledge of four Vedas. Yet if anybody says about avtar then it is their own views and they are satisfied with their views and can not be commented because they could have been realizing at their own but so far as eternal knowledge of Vedas is concerned, Avtar is not possible.
Makayla: Who is my ancestor?
Swami Ram Swarup: In this connection, nothing can be told, please. However, done is done. That is, our forefathers have already left for heavenly abode so we may only pray for them.
