Deep: Gurudev pranam. Mera ek aur prashna hai. Gurudev Maine ek meditation program me Dekha k waha k acharya ne kaha k hum Jo thoughts create karte hai, jiske liye create karte hai, woh thoughts untak pohochti hai, in fact humare thoughts unko khudko, unke thoughts ko influence karti hai, agar hum unke bare me acha soche WO v humare bare acha sochte hai and vice versa. Guruji yeah bat kahatak sach hai? Humare thoughts kisi k thoughts ko kaise badal sakti hai? Is statement ka asli MATLAB kya samjhaya gaya hoga guruji apke vichar se?kya yeah sirf positive and negative energy k exchange hai. Ya sach me hum Jo soch Te hai wohi thoughts, jinke bare me so cha jata hai untak pohoch kar, unki soch badal deti hai? Mujhe ye logic kuch ajeeb laga, kyunki agar aisa hota to yudhistir ji ki thoughts ya to duryodhan k saman hoti ya vice versa, magar hum dekhte hai k yudhistir ji aur duryodhan k soch me zameen asma ka fark hai, bilkul opposite poles, Fir ye logic inpar apply kyu nahi hua?? Ya Fir mere hi samajh ne koi vul hui hai? Humare created thoughts k sath kisi aur k thoughts , destiny in Sab ka kya relation hai guruji? Kyunki is logic se to agar Hume koi na pasand hua to WO v hume na pasand karenge, humne kisi k bare me kuch bura ya vala socha, to WO v exactly same sochenge, magar guruji practical life me iske contradictory cases to hai hi, to guruji sampurna sach kya hai? Hey guruji aap to khud vedon k gyata ho, meditation k master ho aap, to guruji kripaya kar is vishay me mera marg darshan Kare, sach aur soch k bich ka relation mujhe batane ki kripa kare guruji, yeh meri hardik vinti hai aapse..
Guruji ek aur nivedan hai aapse, main ne kahi par pada tha k manusmriti me ye kaha gaya hai k ” a guru who teaches true knowledge is more important than ten teachers, a father is more than 100 such gurus and a mother is more than 1000 such father, there is no greater guru than mother.. ” guruji kya ye shloka ya aisa koi shloka, jiska ultimate meaning yehi nikalta ho, manusmriti me hai? Agar hai to kya aap kripaya mujhe WO shloka vej sakte hai guruji? To apki bohot kripa hogi.
Guruji teacher aur guru me difference kya hai? Kripa kar mera marg darshan karke mujhe uddhar kare guruji.
Apka ashirwad deke mujhe dhanna kare guruji. Aapko mera koti koti pranam..
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Han! Weh thoughts pahunchati hain aur isko telepathy kehte hain. Is statement ka yahi matlub hai ki jaise Yajurved mantra 34/1-6 mein kaha ki hamare vichaar sadaa apna aur doosron ka kalyann karne wale hon. Yeh Ishwareeya niyam hai ki jiske baare mein tum achcha sochoge to uskey paas achchey vichaar chale jayengey anyatha burey. Yudhishthir kee soch kauravon ke prati kalyaankari rahee lekin kauravon kee soch pandavon ke prati kalyankari nahin rahee. Iske beech Rajya hadapne ka lobh aur Raja bane rehne ka ahankar ka prabhaav tha. Duryodhan aur Dhritrashtra aadi ke mann mein lobh aur ahankar tha jo Yudhishthir kee soch ko grehan nahin karne deta tha. Isliye hum sadaa buraiyon ka tyaag hee karein tabhi kisi kee achcheee soch ka hamein achcha phal milega. Destiny ka beech mein koi question nahin hai. Parantu jaise maine upar kaha, Yeh Ishwar ka niyam hai. Contradictory cases mein kai matters relate hote hain, jaise maine upar kahe abhimaan, ahankaar, swarth, lobh etc. Isliye sadaa doosron ke prati achchey vichaar rakho, bhaichara, prem badao to tub aapko koi hani nahi hogee. Jaise Pandavon ko nuksaan nahin hua, nuksaan kauravon ko hee hua. Aapne jo likha hai, uska varnnan Mahbaharat ke Shantiparv mein hai. Shantiparv mein kaha- Vidya guru dus(10) acharayon se adhik mahatva rakhta hai, Pita to vidya guruyon se badkar hai aur mata ka mahatava to Pita se bhi adhik hai. Mata ke samaan doosra koi guru nahin hai. Iska bhaav yahi hai ki mata-Pita bachchey ko janam dete hain, isliye inka mahatva adhik hai aur mata chahe anpad hee ho, weh bachchey ko chalna-bolna aadi sub kuchh seekhatee hai. Parantu Bheeshma Pitamah Yudhishthir se kehte hain ki mera vishwas hai ki Guru ka pad mata-pita se bhi badkar hai kyunki mata-pita to kewal is shareer ko janam deney ke hee upyog mein aatey hain parantu acharya ka updesh prapt karke jo doosra janam prapt hota hai weh divya hai, ajar-amar hai. Aagey Bheeshma Pitamah kehte hain ki jo log vidya padkar Guru ka aadar nahin karte, nikat rehkar mann, vachan, karma se Guru kee sewa nahin karte, unhein Bhroona hatya se bhi badkar paap lagta hai. Sansaar mein unse badaa paapi doosra koi nahin hai. Atah Hey Yudhishthir! Jo vedic dharma ka phal paana chahte hain, unhein chahiye ki weh Guru ka sammaan karein aur prayatna poorvak unhein avashyak vastuyein laakar dein. Guru ko English mein teacher kehte hain, yeh baat aap bhi jaante hain parantu Guru ka doosra arth hai, vedon ka gyan dene wala acharya aur teacher ka doosra arth hai jo school, college aadi kee bhautik padai karata ho. Mera aapko hardik ashirwad.
Vasava: Maine graduation pura kiya hai..main gov.job karna chahti hu..swamiji main gov.job karu aisa assirvad chaiye..abhi Maine binschivalay ki exam Di hai..kya me pass ho jaoungi?
Swami Ram Swarup: Beti, mera aapko ashirwad. Aap jaanti hee hain God helps those who help themselves. Isliye sadaa hard-work, mehnut kartee raho, Ishwar aapkee madad karengey. Ishwar ka ashirwad paaney ke liye nimnalikhit karein-
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yog, 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. Rigved mantra 1/164/46 says
God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained.
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. Rigved 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.
In the end of hawan, please pray to God to fulfill your desires. I hope God will sure listen to you.
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.
