Mahesh: My query is as follows – After understanding and reading all the available read material and the available proofs I have come to the conclusion that this particular world in which we live is the world created by some advance society who can be termed also as demi gods and the
only purpose of this world is to extract energy which is evolved because of our movement. This energy is drawn till the last breadth of the human being and again it is recycled. This observation also defines to me that there is a superpower which is the supreme GOD but we are quite far from
his realm though he has full mercy on us as well. Such as chicken / fish farming for food for us but that does not mean that GOD does not care for Fish/chicken. If my observation is right till here I would like to add another understanding that when we utter the name of supreme GOD thru
mantras like Gayatri or others we create lot og energy which is again utilised by the semi GOD but it also increase our conscious levels to upper stages to go beyond the semi gods and be liberated or be one with the supreme GOD.there is noother meaning or purpose of life and there is no
other secret or else we would not be multiplied to 6.5 billions. Multiplication of humans is a prrof that we are utilised by the advance society and this world is just a maya created for us humans to actively involve in movement to create energy. need your inputs for the same
Swami Ram Swarup: God creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates. The said process is automatic, eternal and everlasting and takes place at a stipulated time. When the creation starts, then the knowledge of four Vedas emanates directly from God. In this connection, I paste my article as under-
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.
Rigveda 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.
It is also pertinent to mention here that in Vedas, there is no mention of avtarwad or any proper noun, please. Vedas do not even contain any story or past, present or future life of anyone. Vedas contain knowledge i.e., entire science, form of deeds/duties and worship of God. Actually
Vedas give knowledge right from straw to Brahma (God) of entire universe.
All four Vedas tell to worship a formless, Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God was one, is one and shall ever remain one. He is unchangeable, unchallengeable and beyond description. He has unlimited qualities and thus unlimited names but is one. Because He is Almighty and needs no help of anyone to create, nurse and destroy the universe therefore no need to take avtar.
God has made universe and blessed us with human body to do pious deeds to attain salvation only. He has not made any heaven or hell. All have to face the result of their deeds, good or bad here only, even by taking rebirth. (Rigveda mantras 10/135/1,2 refer).
God has not only made universe but has also given knowledge of four Vedas where answers to your and everyone’s questions have been given. There are four Vedas:
1. Rig Veda – gives knowledge of science, matter of the universe like sun, moon, air, body etc., etc.
2. Yajurveda – gives knowledge of all the deeds and duties to be performed by men, women, students, leaders, king, agriculturist etc., etc., etc.
3. Samveda – gives knowledge how to worship God who gives peace and long happy life etc. In this way, details of Yoga philosophy, qualities, supreme deeds and nature of the God are also given.
4. Atharvaveda – gives details of God, medical science and details of medicine etc.
Actually in four Vedas there is unlimited knowledge. Yajurveda mantra 40/8 says that God is everywhere, is Almighty, formless, devoid of nervous system, purest, away from sins and does not have to face any result of any karmas (deeds), knows every soul, knows what is in everyone’s mind, no body has made God, but God creates universe, has given the eternal knowledge of four Vedas and always gives the said knowledge at the beginning of every universe to know the science and deeds to all concern. Similarly four Vedas say about God that God is an omnipresent, omniscient, formless, beyond imagination and beyond calculation. Actually God has unlimited qualities. There is only one God who creates, nurses, destroys the universe and recreates. Atharvaveda mantra 4/1/1 also says that God gives the knowledge of Vedas at the beginning of the earth to four Rishis of non-sexual creation. And thereafter only public listens Vedas through Rishis Munis as yet and become learned. Rig-Veda gives knowledge of Almighty, Yajurveda gives knowledge of karmas (deeds), Samveda tells about worship-Yoga philosophy and Atharvaveda about medicines and God. Actually all Vedas commonly says about God also, so this is about Vedas in short. But the knowledge of Vedas is endless.
It is a fundamental law that knowledge is always given by somebody. Otherwise knowledge can’t be gained at any cost. If a new born baby is nursed well in a dense jungle and is not educated then he will not be able to gain any knowledge even if he becomes young or old. So we have to think about the origin of the knowledge prevalent in the world today. In this connection the Vedas themselves say that God gives this knowledge to four Rishis. As said by Rishi Patanjali in Yoga shastra sutra 1/26, God is the first Guru of the four Rishis. Yajurveda mantra 31/7 also refers. This is all in short about Vedas.
The Vedas are not a book, rather it is a knowledge originated in the heart of Rishis. At the time of beginning of the earth those Rishis preached Vedas by mouth and all others remembered the same orally. At that time there was no pen, pencil, paper, etc. This process of studying Vedas orally remained till Mahabharata time. Muni Vyas too remembered Vedas traditionally by heart. Then Muni Vyas for the first time wrote the Vedas on Bhoj patra about 5300 years ago. In 16th century when printing press came into existence then the Vedas were printed. Still Vedas are not those which have been printed but those which are preached by mouth by an Acharya/yogi and the printed Vedas are called Sanhita.
Now if somebody worships a statue etc., then it is their own creation please but Vedas deny. According to Vedas the best worship of the God is Yajyen for which all Vedas are self-proof. Yajurveda mantra 31/16 says that the learned persons worship God by Yajyen.
So many people have asked me that most of the scholars/preachers of different religion state that their religion incorporates all matters of the world including science. What about Vedas? I wrote so many Ved Mantras describing science matters therein. For example, Yajurveda Mantra 3/6 states “Ayam Gauhu Swaha Pitram Puraha Prayan Mataram Prishnihi Aakrameet Asadat”.
This earth revolves around the Sun in the space and it also rotates on its own axis. Vedas are eternal like God because Vedas emanate from God. Now, according to Vedas, this present creation is about 1 Arab, 96 crores, 8 lakh 53,111 years old. So are the Vedas but as said in Rigveda Mantra 10/191/3 the present creation is same as was the previous one and this process of creation is eternal. So are the Vedas which emanate from eternal God. This all concludes that Vedas are the oldest in this creation also and no other book of science, maths or pertaining to spiritualism is written before Vedas.
Like the above example of rotation and revolution of earth, the significance of whole present science is mentioned in Vedas. We can see that whatever is happening in the universe, is all according to the Vedas. For example, occurance of six seasons, actions of Sun, moon, process of death, birth, worship, yoga philosophy, atomic energy, agriculture, animal husbandry, knowledge of politics, administration, architecture, solar energy, knowledge of home appliances like mixer, grinder, business rules, about men, women, children, marriage, Brahamcharya, education, clothes etc., etc., i.e., knowledge right from a straw to Brahma is all in Vedas. God is Almighty and has unlimited powers. So through His power He is able to originate the knowledge of Vedas in the heart of four Rishis without pencil, paper, help of mouth or any other worldly assistance.
We, i.e., the whole world depends on Almighty God but God is forever independent. That is why, He is God. We are the souls who reside in human bodies. We need assistance of senses, perceptions, mind and body to do deeds but not God.
Nowadays, so many saints are writing books. What is the background to write their books? Background is clear that they have first studied or listened the preach from their Gurus, keeping aside the matter of truth or falsehood. And after studying or listening the same, they became able to write the books. So this is also fundamental law, based on which, the ancient Rishis first listened Vedas and when they became learned then only they wrote the Vedic books like Valmiki Ramayana, six shastras, Mahabharat (Bhagwad Geeta), Upanishads, etc., etc. So, first the knowledge of Vedas is initiated in the universe and afterwards other books come into existence.
Somebody may say that human beings have knowledge by their nature to create anything like books etc., but we see that the newly born baby who is nursed in a jungle, in the absence of knowledge of a learned person, he becomes incapable to do anything. Thus, he can’t be M.A, M.Sc, doctor etc. So there are two types of the words and meanings. First, eternal which are from Almighty God and second, natural made by human beings. Eternal word meanings are always from Vedas i.e., from God. After listening/studying Vedas, human beings become learned and then too based on their own natural knowledge, they make their own words and meanings, literature etc. But it is very much clear that in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, no one can become learned. Nowadays, also people live in dense jungle and do not lead a civilized life because they are not learned as cited above. Vedas are not sects because they emanate direct from God and God is one for all human beings. God creates sun, moon, air, water, food etc., which are meant for the best use of all human beings for their long, happy life. So are the Vedas. So all human beings must accept Vedas as an eternal knowledge from God, for the benefit of whole creation.
Hence, the study of four Vedas reveals that innumerable benefits have been contained in the Cow by God for the human-beings. The study of Ved-shastras, Upnishads, Valmiki Ramayan, Bhagwad Geeta, Mahabharat reveals that non-vegetarian food and addiction by human-beings, has strictly been prohibited by Almighty God. Why the views of the said books are true. In this connection I would like to mention that the knowledge is only obtained when it is given by someone else. Otherwise, the people would remain ignorant, indulged in illusion. So a deep consideration would force us to think that the first holy book named Valmiki Ramayan written by Valmikiji about one crore eighty-one lakh years ago could be written when Valimkiji had studied Vedas first. Otherwise, ignorant person would not be able to write such a great epic. So is the case of writing Mahabharat epic, six shastras, Upnishads and other ancient and present holy books. Therefore the said holy books written by Rishis totally based on Vedas are considered authentic by the learneds. Yog Shastra sutra 1/7 educates the human-beings by saying that to come to a conclusion/truth. The views must tally with Vedas first then the above said books. It is sad that most of the saints who are preaching and writing the books never produce proof of Vedas supporting their respective views.
Sins are committed due to ignorance. Nowadays Vedas are not been listened properly, hence ignorance prevails. Therefore the grave sin of consumption of non-vegetarian food is increasing day by day. It has led to cause of number of diseases and laws of nature then we will find that carnivorous animals like lions, leopards, tigers etc., hunt the herbivorous animals. But herbivores like deer, rabbits, elephants never take non-vegetarian food.
Similarly, God has created bodies of human-beings to take only vegetarian food but it is sad that several human-beings are in the habit of taking non-vegetarian food and thus break the laws of universe made by God Himself in the Vedas. You see defaulter of such laws is always punished and God has also stated in several mantras to award punishment to people who take non-vegetarian food.
This habit as quoted above in due to ignorance/illusion. If our Government draws its attention towards the eternal knowledge of Vedas which emanate direct from God, then no doubt the people will gain long, happy life with all assets, say the Vedas.
It is our bad luck nowadays that we waste our time to listen and study the literature which does not tally with the Vedas whereas Vedas are the divine knowledge which emanates directly from Almighty God and rest of the spiritual literature has been written either by ancient/present Rishi-
Munis or by others. While over sighting the Vedic literature, which is invaluable culture blessed by God to us, we have been studying the literature which is against the God’s knowledge, i.e., Vedas. Now, how would we be able to decide right and wrong matter/views. I would like to mention
here a real event which occurred about thirty years ago-
Once, I was going in a bus with my respected guruji. One of the passengers sitting at his back seat told guruji that he (the person) has studied several books and has reached the conclusion that there is no God. My guru maharajji uttered only few words to him peacefully that Oh! My dear,
why did you study those books? The person did not answer.
So, why do we study such books which cannot tell us about the process of eternal creation. You see, the knowledge is only obtained, if it is given by somebody. When non-sexual creation starts in the beginning of the earth, there resides no Rishi-Munis, guru etc. All the people are ignorant. So, how do human-beings become learned later on? Who gives them knowledge? The answer is available in the Vedas and ancient Six shastras, Upnishads, Mahabharat, Valmiki Ramayan etc., that knowledge of Vedas emanates directly from God. Based on Vedic knowledge, it is clear that there are no demi gods or devi-devtas etc. Only one formless, omnipresent, Almighty God creates the universe. Only purpose of this world is not to extract energy which is evolved because of our movement. We must learn that how do we move. That is, from where does the movement come? How the earth and other planets rotate and revolve in space? Who is that power who creates and enters the universe? Main aim of human-life is to realize Almighty God and to get salvation. Breathing system
is also not independent. There is a power who facilitates breathing. Otherwise, why does the dead body not breathe? What has gone out of the body, so that no organ works?
Unlimited divine qualities of the supreme God are mentioned in the Vedas out of which one is that He never takes any assistance to control the universe. He is always independent. So, how can demigods or any advance society, whose existence is not there in Vedas, can create world. We
are far from the realm of God due to our weakness of not doing hard work to realize God. One thing is there in Vedas that energy is given by Almighty God. There is no advance society etc., which has any power to utilize us. Only formless, Almighty God who creates, nurses and destroys
the universe has full control on us as well as on entire creation. As regards happiness and sorrows, the said is the result of previous lives’ deeds- good and bad. To nullify the effect of deeds, God has advised us to listen to Vedas, do daily havan, yajyen, name jaap of God and practice of Yoga philosophy which is not being done and so the problem arises.
Creation of world is base of Raj, Tam and Satva Gunnas (qualities) of non-alive matter Prakriti. If anyone gets attracted towards the materialistic articles of this world, including attraction towards opposite sex etc., then he is indulged in illusion (Maya) and looses his prudence/judgment
Actually, every article of the creation like sun, moon, plants, vegetation, air, water, food, gold, silver and thousands of other materialistic articles are only meant for us (souls) to live upon. The person who indulge in illusion, due to lack of Vedas’ knowledge start blaming the created material
and persons etc. Because such persons never listen to eternal and everlasting truth of Vedas and never follow it. They forget the main aim of human life which is to realize God and to attain salvation while discharging all moral duties towards family, society, nation and all human-beings.
One of the fundamental law of Vedas mentioned in Yajurveda mantra 7/48 made by God is also this that all of us are free to do pious deeds or sins but result will be awarded by God in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively. So, when we are entirely free to do any pious deeds or sin,
then we cannot say that maya is created for us to actively involve in movement to create energy.
Reena: JAI GURUDEV, Luv u toooo much!! My Question is can we plant a BRAHMA KAMAL Plant at home. I had already planted it and there are 3 buds in it after almost 2yrs. Someone had told me bad experiences they faced after planting it, so I kept it in our society’s garden and now I am confused should I bring it back home?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. If there is Brahma kamal plant (which I do not know, please) then happily you can plant it in your home, being a natural beauty. Everything which has been made by God is for our benefit. When it is a plant then it can never harm you if its buds, leaves, stem are not poisonous.
