02. How to remove karma complete, what are the procedures should I follow to be good to free from all Karmas…? Kindly reply to my question, I am waiting for your good reply.
Swami Ram Swarup: You are welcome please.
(i) Good/pious karmas are those which are done according to Vedas and deeds done against the Vedas are bad karmas/sins. I also paste my article in this regarding-
Three types of Deeds
There are three types of deeds (karmas) – sanchit, prarabhadh and kriyamann. Suppose one soul has to take birth (body). It means he has to face total number of deeds of his all previous lives and these deeds are called sanchit karmas but sanchit deeds are huge/unlimited and cannot be faced in one life. So the karmas which can be faced in one life are called prarabhadh (luck-destiny). So God has not made our luck at His own but Almighty God has taken the deeds which we have already done.
Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clarifies that human being is free to do any deed good or bad but God only awards the result. Now the balance deeds from sanchit deeds will be counted in the next life. Now the deeds which we do in our day today present life are called kriyamann.
If we do pious deeds according to Vedas, shastras and holy books and based on pious preaches of Rishi, Muni/learned saints then our all sanchit deeds are burnt and we can get salvation. Human beings are free in the matter of doing deeds good or bad. But result will be awarded by God. So we must worship and do pious deeds under guidance of a learned Guru. One should go always ahead for hard working, pious deeds, worship to make future bright himself. One should always work hard towards a right path.
Worship does not mean that we are free to discharge only our family duties, education, etc., but rather it is a sin. We have to get progress in both way at a time i.e., spiritualism and worldly progress i.e., science, education, duties towards family etc. God creates the universe according to His eternal law framed in Vedas which are always unchangeable and unchallengeable. So we have to follow the law of God always to get long happy life.
REMOVING BINDINGS OF KARMA (KARMA BANDHAN)
Pain or suffering of karmas is unlimited since the load of sanchit karmas is uncountable. But all karmas (deeds- good or bad) can be burnt in the present life by doing real worship of God. It may take next birth also according to the amount of time and dedication with which an aspirant pursues his worship.
So the real remedy is to follow the eternal path of four Vedas. One should listen Vedas from an experienced Acharya who knows Vedas as well as Ashtang Yoga philosophy, which also exists in Vedas. Regular guidance of learned Acharya is needed by the aspirant.
Who says that God is sitting idle? Otherwise, who else is controlling the universe? Who is giving justice to human-beings in this divine court of law? How the wind is blowing, earth is moving, sun is revolving, sun and moon are bringing about the production of crops, who is controlling birth and death, who is laughing with in the blooming flowers? Who awakes us in the morning and under whose power do we retire to our beds to sleep and under whose supervision our digestive system works? Who has created the whole universe and matters, etc.
We are taking rest but God never does so. He is our commander and He showers mercy on us by donating the whole world to us along with knowledge of four Vedas to make us learned but most of the people get indulged only in materialistic articles of the world and forget Almighty God and hence the sorrows, problems, tensions, diseases etc., devolve over them.
As regards war, hatred, terrorism, etc. it is man-made problem created because of lack of knowledge of Vedas. Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clearly states that human beings are free to do good or bad deeds but result is awarded by God accordingly in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively.
(ii) To destroy all previous lives’ deeds, knowledge of Vedas has been blessed by God to the human-beings. Those who follow the Vedic path and thus do hard study of Vedas, name jaap of God, hawan/Yajyen and hard practice of Ashtang Yoga Philosophy under guidance of learned acharya of Vedas, they attain Dharmamegh Samadhi mentioned in Vedas and Yoga shastra.
In the Samadhi, they realise Almighty God and attain salvation. Salvation means destruction of all previous lives deeds.
Abhilash: Swamiji thanks for your response to my questions. However, I am more confused now.You quote from shastras and puranas.you said Vyasdeo was the knower of vedas yet in his Shrimad Bhagwatam he described Shri Krshna as the supreme god,the beginning,the middle and the end.He also described the appearance of Sri Krshna befor Deoki and Vasudeo in his cosmic form.From the childhood to the event of Mahabharat he presented him as the supreme god.How does this compromise with the Vedas. Please you said there are 8 chakras.Could you please tell where in the body they are placed and their names please.Namaskaar.
Swami Ram Swarup: You are welcome, please.
Vyasmuniji has never described Yogeshwar Krishna as supreme Lord etc., in Bhagwad Geeta (Mahabharat). Bhagwad Puran has not been written by Vyasmuniji.
Names of Chakras in human body
Muladhar chakra, swadhishthan chakra, manipurak chakra, anahat chakra, kanth chakra, lalna chakra, agya chakra, sastrar chakra. Hard study of Vedas, daily havan with Ved mantra, regular contact with learned acharya, and hard/daily practice of Ashtang yoga philosophy is essential to activate the charka. Yet the mercy of Almighty God is too essential in addition. (Atharvaveda mantra 10/2/31 also refers).
