Anonymous: What is human body called in the Vedas?
Swami Ram Swarup: Manav sharer ko ved mein Ishwar prapti ka sthan kaha hai. Atharvavedmantra 10/8/43 mein isey Pundareekam arthat punnya karma karne ka sadhan kaha hai. Is mein hee parmeshwar aur jeevatma dono ka nivaas hai aur jub yeh shaerer ved marg par chalta hai toh is shareer dwara hee Brahma arthat moksh prapti hotee hai.
SS: Can women meditate during periods?
Swami Ram Swarup:
God has given knowledge of four Vedas to the souls which reside in human body. God has not given the knowledge to bodies. Soul realizes God and attains salvation and not bodies. Soul is unchangeable and immortal whereas bodies are changeable and are destroyed. So souls either in the body of man or woman is entitled to chant all the mantras, to listen preach and to worship God. According to Yajurveda mantra 31/11 there is no any caste system except humanity based on good or bad qualities. Almighty God is the purest matter in the universe. You see God is omnipresent therefore also is present in our stomach, stool, urine, blood, etc., but no any matter is able to touch Him. He (God) thus always remains the purest. So woman can continue her daily hawan also.
