Hitesh: Types of knowledge according to “shanti sukh, santushti”?
Swami Ram Swarup: Shanti and Sukh lies within Almighty God. So, until we worship according to eternal knowledge of Vedas, we cannot get peace or happiness. Rigveda states that without worship of God, there can be no peace. Without knowledge of Vedas, no knowledge of almighty God. Similarly, in the absence of learned acharya, nobody can gain Vedas’ knowledge.
Anamika: Pranam swamiji .. I have two daughters. Could you please tell me any mantras for having a son?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. There is no mantra to acquire a son. However, Vedas tell that he who worships God daily by performing havan/yajyen then his pious desires are fulfilled. In addition, both husband and wife should also maintain Brahmacharya for at least one year to fulfill the desire of getting son. In this connection, I would advise you to study my book named- Brahmacharya- Ek dukh nivarak divya Manni (in Hindi) worth Rs.100/-, excluding postal charges. It can be sent on receipt of your postal address, if you desire. In case of further doubt, you may send your query, again.
Chaand: Swami jee Parnam, I have a question that bothered me! I have a friend who very much believes in Lord Hanuman and he is a beefeater, Please let me know your opinion about this
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You see, Hanumanji was a Brahmachari and a worshipper of Almighty, formless and omnipresent God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe.
The said truth is known by studying Valmiki Ramayan written by Rishi Valmikiji and Valmikiji was contemporary to Sri Ram. Sri Ram when met Hanumanji in dense forest while searching for Sitaji, it is stated in Valmiki Ramayan, he after conversing with Hanumanji told Laxman, that Oh! Laxman, Hanumanji is learned of Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda and Atharvaveda and he also knows Sanskrit grammer well. You see, in Vedas, non-vegetarian and any addiction is strictly prohibited. Further, when Hanumanji did not take any non-vegetarian, then his followers should follow the path pursued by Hanumanji, Hanumanji was a learned and ardent follower of Vedas and he worshipped above quoted formless, omnipresent God. Therefore, Hanumanji’s followers should also adopt the same.
