Sharma: Shat Shat Parnam Guru JI, Thank you very much once again for clearing doubts.
Once again your last line touched my soul: “my blessings to you , my son” really feeling very good. Do we need some beej mantar before we say gayatari mantra? Please bless me that i come along with my family to have your blessing I need your blessing & pls pray for me during your prayers.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You are welcome, please. There is no need of any beej mantra to start Gayatri mantra. My blessings to you and your family members for the fulfillment of your desires.
Dhun: Dear guru ji. Namaskar and very happy to hear from you you have given clear answer but may be my question was not clear to you. I have a curiocity to know that why people have names with female and male words together? Why female words comes first? For example Gaurishankar, Laxminarayan, Radheshyam, Sitaram, etc. Is there any Vedic reason?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskar. In the Vedas, lady has been given utmost respect. For example- Vedas states Rigveda mantra 8/33/19 it is stated-
“ISTREE HI BRAHMA BABHOOVITH”
i.e., a woman is like a Brahma. Rigveda further states- Mata Nirmatri Bhavti i.e., a mother makes a child’s future bright. Shastras also consider woman/mother first stating matri devo bhav then pitri devo bhav. So, traditionally, the name of woman is considered first.
Amar Singh: Pranaam and Charan sparsh Swamiji. Thanks for the answers.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. you are welcome, please.
