Swami Ram Swarup: To help the needy is considered a great donation in Vedas. So, you should carefully check yourself and the persons working under you that the power/means of service entrusted to you are utilized the maximum for victims. So, exercise your power at your level best. You should also remember the God daily by performing small havan with even Gayatri mantra and should also chant Gayatri mantra both times, daily. This will give you power/blessings of God to discharge your duties satisfactorily.
Satish: Thank you very much for all the replies Swamiji. Can you please answer my other questions regarding Prophet Mohammed mentioned in Vedas. I also have some more questions.
1) Where will the names Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva appeared for the first time? Does they appear in Vedas? If they can you please give the verse numbers?
2) Can you please suggest books or website which has the explanation of verses of Vedas?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you and you are most welcome, please.
1. Regarding Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, my article is pasted below.
There is only one God who is formless, creates, nurses and destroys the universe. He is Almighty and supreme, beyond description, beyond imagination and beyond calculation. He is omnipresent and omniscient. Divine qualities of Almighty God are described in eternal knowledge of Vedas. Vedas emanate direct from God. So all Hindus and others too believe in Vedas.
Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are the names of one said God. God has no wives please because He is Almighty and needs no assistance etc. No one is above God please. All religions tell to worship God.
Are Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh Gods?
Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh are not God. Vedas tell that there is only one formless God who never takes birth. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe. His power is enough to create and control the whole universe. He is Almighty i.e., He has all unlimited powers and therefore He does not need any assistance to create, nurse and destroy the universe by Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. If God needs assistance then He will not be called Almighty. So God does not need any support but we all humans as well as all living beings need His support and blessings every time. However, in Vedas, there are innumerable names of Almighty God according to His divine qualities. So Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh etc., are also the names of the formless Almighty God. Brahma means the greatest. Vishnu means omnipresent and Mahesh means the greatest.
It is the personal matter of worship or not to worship. So atheists are also there. But it is very clear that God in Vedas as clarified that He Has blessed the human being with human body to worship and realise God. Nobody can attain happy life in the absence of worship of God. One more thing is clear from Vedas in which God states –Oh man/woman you live on the earth given by God and all comforts provided by the God. And if you do not remember/worship God then it is sin and punishment is awarded by the God.
Very few persons know that present science has also come out from Vedas, especially Rigveda. The knowledge of Vedas also emanates from God. So, it is clear that scientist also enjoy science which is given by God. God is not only the matter of blind faith. It is the matter of discussion with a learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga philosophy who from Vedas, shastras and Upnishads etc., and scientifically also prove the existence of God. For example- we see the creation and can think deeply that who has created it or is it a job of man/woman, scientist etc., then automatically after long discussion we would reach on the conclusion that men/women/scientist have not created the universe and then He who has created is called Almighty God.
Vishnu is also a name of formless, Almighty God based on quality. Quality is a sunder- “Vishnu” word is made from “Vishlari” Dhatu and the sense of Vishlari” is omnipresent. So he who has the quality of being Omnipresent at all times without a second’s break, He is Vishnu and no other Vishnu exists equivalent to this God. Similarly, Brahma= “Vri Vridhau” i.e., the biggest amongst the universe. Naturally, He is Almighty God. So, the name of Almighty God is also Brahma. Similarly, according to Yajurveda mantra 16/41 shiv means he who is beneficial/causes welfare, is shiv. The most beneficial, who creates and nurses the universe is Almighty God. So, Shiv is also name of Almighty God.
2. I would advice you that to enter into the knowledge of Vedas, you should first read some literature like- especially Yajyen- Karma sarvashreshth Ishwar Pooja (in Hindi) worth Rs.65/- and Vedanta and eternal Vedas’ Philosophy Part I and II (in English) worth Rs.31/- and Rs.20/-, excluding postal charges.
You may select any, if you desire to read the same. It can be sent on receipt of your postal address, if you desire.
G M: Namastay swami ji, Thank you for answer, what happens if we keep ashes at home, if we decided not to flow ashes of my relative. Namaste, with regards.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. You are welcome, please. We have to follow the Vedic advise. Vedas and shastras do not permit to keep the ashes of dead body at home.
