A: I was waiting for your arrival in my city but your visit got postponed. Please forgive me if I made any mistake. Please visit my city.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. I am sorry I could not come to your city. I also made a small visit and could not contact you. I hope next time I will sure come to you for performing Yajyen. I appreciate your pious desire to perform Yajyen.
Navin: Pranam Swamiji Jai shree Krishna, We have four yug, and 24 avtars of god or 10 avtar of vashnu. I wish to now about satyug which I presume was the beginning of the yug after samudra manthan and manu and satrupa were first human soul.I shall be pleased if you can give us more details of all yug, how many avtar has taken in each yug, i shall be pleased if you can give us name of avtar as per yug wise and also what was the reason for such avtar. We know from gita that when ever there was need for dharma, I will take birth. Once again pranam and jai shree krishna
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Avtarwad is not mentioned in Vedas and not possible also. So, learned of Vedas never accept it. So, question does not arise of avtarwad in this yug. In this connection, I paste my article-
God is only one who creates the universe and no other can create the universe except God. Please think deeply is any one except God empowered for creation, etc.? The pious qualities of God are unlimited whereas qualities of soul, which resides in human body, are limited. That is why He is God. This fact is also mentioned by Rishi Patanjali in his Yog shastra sutra 1/24, “KALEASHKARAMVIPAKASHYAIHI APRAMRISHTAHA PURUSHVISHESHAHA ISHWARAHA” i.e., He who is not indulged in any sorrows/sufferings (kalesh), in any kind of deed (karma) and result thereof (vipakya), He is supreme in souls and is called Ishwar (God), whereas, soul is indulged in all the said matters according to deeds done in previous, and in the present life. So this is also a difference between God and souls and therefore soul can never be God based on the different qualities.
Amongst unlimited qualities of God, few may be enumerated-that God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent and Almighty, beyond description, beyond imagination, and beyond calculation. Nobody on the earth can deny such qualities, but these qualities are to be discussed and considered deeply and he who does the same is called MUNI as per Vedas and shastras.
Let us think over one quality of God – Being Almighty. Almighty means God has all powers and thus God, to control the universe and to do any kind of deed for the same, can not be dependent on another, at any cost, being Almighty. Again shastras say, which is a true saying too, that there must be reason behind for any creation, matter etc. God is a reason to create the universe. Parents are the reason to give birth to a child. Ravana took Sita forcefully which became a reason for war between Shri Ram and Ravana etc. So as per Vedas there must be a reason of avtar and after studying eternal knowledge of Vedas and thinking deeply, there seems no reason to take avtar by Almighty God. As in Yajurveda mantra 2/26, so is in Shwetashwaropnishad shlok 6/8 wherein it is mentioned that there is no reason to form a God and thus God is also formless i.e., nobody can make God but God creates universe from non-alive prakriti. Secondly the said Upnishad says that the deeds of God of creation, nursing, and destruction of universe are eternal, natural, and automatic. So naturally God needs no avtar to destroy Kalyug, earth, or devils etc., being Almighty i.e., God has all powers and is independent. Not God but only His powers are enough to control, create, nurse, destroy the universe. That is why Upnishad says that God has no desire to create etc., but it is eternal and natural and this sort of desire is named “IKSHAN” and not desire to create etc.
Suppose God has to kill a devil and He takes avtar and God kills the devils by arrow etc. It means God is not Almighty and independent because God has taken help of Avtar (Human body) and arrow, gun, etc., which is impossible.
This all I have told based on fundamental law of eternal knowledge of four Vedas. Yet if anybody says about avtar then it is their own views and they are satisfied with their views and can not be commented because they could have been realizing at their own but so far as eternal knowledge of Vedas is concerned, Avtar is not possible.
Manu was the first king of the entire earth. samundra manthan is a purann’s story which is not accepted by the learned of Vedas being against the Vedic culture.
Also, suppose, samundra manthan takes place then naturally samundra (ocean), earth etc., i.e., creation existed then how can the question arise regarding creation.
As regards, yug, my article is pasted below-
Manusmriti gives the proof in its chapter one that present time of the earth is 7th Manvantar. Uptil now 6 manvantar have passed. Those are Swayambhar, Swarochisch, Ottmi, Tamas, Ryivat and Chakshash, now its 7th manvantar. 71 chaturyugi = 1 manvantar.
There are four yug – Satyug, Treta, Dwapur and Kaliyug.
Satyug = 17 lakhs 28 thousands years
Treta = 12 lakhs 96 thousands years
Dwapur = 8 lakhs 64 thousands years
Kaliyug = 4 lakhs 32 thousands years
The total of four Yugas comes to be 43 lakhs and 20 thousands years which is equal to one Chaturyugi. 71 Chaturyugi i.e., 30 crore 67 lakhs and 20 thousands years equal to one Manvantar and 6 Manvantar have yet passed whose calculation comes to one Arab 84 crore 30 lakhs and 20 thousands years. This is 7th Manvantar and 28 Chaturyugi and the present Kaliyug has passed its time of 5002 years. So, uptil now the age of the earth and Vedas is one Arab 96 crore 8 lakhs 53 thousands and 2 years. Bhagwat Geeta shlok 8/17 also says about this fact.
14 Manvantar= 1 Kalp.
Again, my blessings to you.
B C S: Hindu religon create mainly VED but Ved is totally unknown for me but why? If possible please send Vedas from India to Bangladesh.
Swami Ram Swarup: After Mahabharat war, knowledge of Vedas diminished by selfish persons. The selfish persons are now also trying to keep away the public from Vedas’ knowledge. That is why, mostly the people have starting saying that they are ignorant of Vedas’ knowledge. Swami Dayanandji has done a great job to revive the knowledge of Vedas. Without Vedas’ knowledge, it is not possible that person can attain peace. So, it is our duty to listen to Vedas and spread its knowledge all over the world. I would therefore, advise you also that at least start listening to Vedas. However, before entering into knowledge of Vedas, I would further advise you to study my following books and Cds which you would be able to know the fundamentals of Vedas including creation, souls, Almighty God and Prakriti.
Thereafter, you may make contact locally with an acharya to listen to Vedas or you may contact with this site to learn Vedas slowly through e-mail.
A list of books and Cds is available on the site and you may select some books or Cds (1, 2 or more), if you desire. The books can be sent on receipt of your postal address. After receiving payment, you will be provided with the publications with appropriate rebates.
