Shilpa: Namaste swamiji, Aaj Bharat ki jo sthiti hai, eske liye aam insanne kya karana chahiye. sabhi chahate he swiss bank me pada kala dhan wapas aai. jisase ki Bharat desh viksit desho gina jayaga. Ho sakta hai es kala dhan aur apni science aur technology se duniya me no
1 rashtra kahalye. jo puri duniya ko apni udartase shanti ke marg par chalna sikhayega aur sab jagah khushali hi hogi. kyonki Bharat ek hi esa Desh he jisne itihas. me kisise apne swarth ke liye ladai nahi ki aur usme hi wo shamta he ki sab deshose ki leader ship bina bhedbhav aur swarth rakhake kare. to Parameshwar sabhu bharatwasiyo ki iccha kab puri karaga? Aap bata sakate iske liye hume ishwar ki kis tarah seva karni chahiye. Aur ishwar itna shakishali he to wah kyon duniya me shanti nahi la raha? kyonki hum apne jivan me kitne bhi sukhi ho lekin duniya me chal rahi garibi, antakwad maan ko dukhi kar dete hai.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste, my daughter. Yeh bharatvarsh Rishiyon kee bhumi hai. Yahaan, vedon ka adhyayan, Rishi-Muniyon kee kripa se hota tha aur ghar-ghar mein yajyen aur
havan hota tha. Yajurveda mantra 19/40 mein kaha hai ki is vidhi se arthat Rishi-Muniyon kee sewa aur unse vedon ka sunna aur yogabhyas aadi karna vedon ke updesh anusar grihasthashram ke liye mehnut kee kamai karna aur sadaa shubh karma karna, isse prayaha sabhi nar-nari ke hridaye shudh rehte the isliye kala dhan ikkatha karna, jhoot bolna ya vishaye vikaar aadi karne ka us samay prashan hee nahi uthta tha. Aaj hum vedon kee shiksha, Rishi-Muniyon kee sewa, mata-pita kee sewa, mehnut karna aadi prayaha chhodkar manghadant pooja aur andhvishwas aaadi mein phansa kar apne hridaye kale kar baithe hain. Aalsi banker baithkar khane kee ichha aur doosron ke dhan harann karne kee ichha mann mein hone se bhrashtachar aadi mein vritti chali gayee hai.
Yeh kaala dhan bhi to doosron kee kali kamai hai jo nahin honee chahiye thee. Lekin jab tak hum sab ka man upar kahi puratan bhakti se saaf nahin hoga, tab tak na kaala dhan wapis ayega aur agar koi dhan thoda bahut ayega bhi to uska adhik se adhik bhag kale mann kee kali kartooton ko karne walon ke beech mein bant jayega. Yeh bhi to ek doubt hai. Isliye hum sab bharat wasiyon ko vedic vidya se ghar mein hawan karne se apna mann saaf rakhna chahiye. Is cheez ka prachar bahut zaroori hai. Kyunki paap wahi karega jis ka mann saaf nahin hai. Hum yahaan ardhvarshik patrika nikalte hain. Maine is patrika mein apne sampadkiye lekh mein is kale dhan aadi par bahut kuchh likha hai. Main aapko is patrika ko padne ke liye advise karta hoon. Patrika aapko aapka postal address milne par free bhej dee jayegi agar aapkee ichchha hai. Yahaan prithvi par koi birla hee parivaar sukhi hai . Ishwar kee sachchi saaf dil se bhakti kiye bina sabhi dukhi hain.
Jaise upar kahaa hamein vedon ke vidwaan (rishi-muniyon) se ved vidya sunkar aur apna kar pehle apna mann saaf karna chahiye. Ishwar to tabhi hamaree madad karega , warna nahin karega.
According to Rigveda mantra 10/135/1,2 we’ve been blessed with the human body to face the
result of our previous lives’ deeds – good and bad, in the shape of happiness and sorrows. When we’ve to face bad deeds then naturally everybody says that it is our bad luck but mostly people do not think that God has done justice and the sorrows/problems given by God is the result of our said deeds. Further, the ved mantras state that if a person makes contact with learned acharya of Vedas and yoga philosophy and becomes able to gain knowledge of Vedas and obey preach of Vedas
then the effect of bad deeds is automatically destroyed and future becomes bright. Secondly, God helps those who help themselves. So, hardworking, devotion and dedication also makes future bright.
H P: Guru JI namshkar. I am not satisfied with my health. Little bit problem is always there. I am an architect and leading a very stressful life. Please suggest.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskarji. Health is actually our wealth and carelessness towards health may amount to disaster. Everything in the world has been provided by God to us, including delicious fruits, vegetables, milk, ghee etc., but an unhealthy person is totally unable to enjoy
the same. So, we have to take care of our health ourselves. It includes to wake up early in the morning for long, morning walk and light exercise daily; one should also daily perform yogasans and prannayam for long, happy life. Always take vegetarian food. Take plenty of water, daily i.e., a person must take fifteen to twenty glasses of boiled, cooled water daily, should maintain Brahmacharya. I would also advise you to get yourself medically checked up. Everything
is really in the hands of Almighty God and our human life is meant to do His worship along with discharging all our moral duties simultaneously. Worship will also enable you to concentrate your mind and become stress free. Sure, then he gives his blessings for good health etc. So, you are advised to do the following-
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.
One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.
The Gayatri mantra is as follows —
OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA
DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT
Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on
Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.
Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three
names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which
Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar,
Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigveda mantra 1/164/46 says
God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only
VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore
Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus
Viraat is the name of God. Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter
makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti.
Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the
visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form.
Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed
and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible
but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction
is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.
AGNI = From dhatu, “ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its
meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., Omniscient. That is,
knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be
known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.
VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is He
in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being
omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.
HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base
of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.
VAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vayu word is made. Its meaning is
He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name
of God is Vayu.
TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made meaning He who is self
made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take
light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken,
unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun,
moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.
ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is
whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune
and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to
mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas
God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.
ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the
one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name
PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made
meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who
knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So
God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion
can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.
BHUHU = “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe,
is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.
BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow,
and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the
name of God is Bhuvaha.
SWAHA = i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is
holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.
SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.
DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.
VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme
and acceptable for worship.
BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable
English word of Sanskrit word, “SHUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)
TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.
DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because
YAHA = the God
NAHA = our,
DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)
PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)
“We meditate the God who is the base of lives’ of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration”.
Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things —-
Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.
Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.
Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.
HOW TO DO HAVAN
Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.
Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.
Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.
Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand’s finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajna. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.
Procedure of Chanting
Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any. After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.
A: Swamiji… I want to know about my previous birth sin and do something towards it.. I am suffering a lot. There is no end to my pain and sufferings.. Now I am in a state of depression. With my prayers, I am not getting any answer for this. Please tell me a solution for this.
Swami Ram Swarup: Nobody can know about his/her previous births. Present life has
been provided by God to us to make it a long, happy one by doing pious deeds and hard working and daily worship of God. We have to get progress in worldly pious affairs like education, science etc,. And spiritual deeds simultaneously which make our life ill free, tension free giving us permanent peace and making us healthy, wealthy and wise. Those who fail to discharge duties and follow the said spiritual path carefully, they only blame God and others for their downfall etc.
So, this is the only time to do something in your life utilizing your present time of present life.
I paste my article below for your guidance. Health is actually our wealth and carelessness towards health may amount to disaster. Everything in the world has been provided by God to us, including delicious fruits, vegetables, milk, ghee etc., but an unhealthy person is totally unable to enjoy the same. So, we have to take care of our health ourselves. It includes to wake up early in the
morning for long, morning walk and light exercise daily; one should also daily perform yogasans and prannayam for long, happy life. Always take vegetarian food. Take plenty of water, daily i.e., a person lust take fifteen to twenty glasses of boiled, cooled water daily, should maintain Brahmacharya. I would also advise you to get yourself medically checked up. Everything is really in the hands of Almighty God and our human life is meant to do His worship along with
discharging all our moral duties simultaneously. Worship will also enable you to concentrate your mind and become stress free. Sure, then he gives his blessings for good health etc.
