Sagar: Swamiji pranam. Last year I visited Mount Abu where Vaishist munis ashram is located (Arbudaanchal). There the purohit told me that the havan kund is still in existence. Swamiji my question is after so many years there were so many geographical changes lands moving continents drifting how come this kund is still in existence and the ashram as well?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You are very much correct, please. The statement of the Purohit to say about hawan kund and ashram’s existence is not authentic and therefore not acceptable. Reason to popularize such places is only to earn the money from the public. Vasishth muni period is more than one crore years ago. So, to maintain hawan-kund etc., intact is quite impossible, please.
C K Vatsa: Poojaya Swami ji,Namaste. I am studying Mandukyaupanishad these days. It is very tough. Could you, please give me the gist of the 12 Mantras, in simple language. Dhanyawad.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, please. I shall try to write the gist of 12 shlokas of Mandukya Upnishad slowly-slowly, being busy in my routine of Yajyen, hard Tapasya, writing commentary of Bhagwad Geeta shlokas upto 12th chapter and other writing works. So, please repeat this question after 15 days.
Anil: Pujya Guruji Pranam, Thankyou for your answers. Please let me know whether we can give ahutis in Hawan with Guru Mantra even if it is not a Vedic Mantra.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You are most welcome, please. Aahuti is always offered by chanting Ved mantras only in hawan kund and not by any other mantra, says Samveda. It means other aahutis are not acceptable by God. We’ve to obey only Vedas’ rules which are framed only by Almighty God and not by man.
