Ashish Ranjan: Smya suman viksane bala ka kya abhipraya hai?
Swami Ram Swarup: Kripya jo shloka aapne likha hai weh kahan se likha hai, is baare
AD: Swamiji Namaste, Recently my cousin made some changes in her house according to vastu shashtra as per the advice of one Jyotishi. She told me that after renovation they have observed changes in their life and profit in their business, and they feel very good now Swamiji my
question is what is the logic behind this; and what is the reason that many people say that as per vastu shashtra they get lots of benefits in their life; is this just a co-incidence ? Regards Ashish
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Matter of vastu Shastra does not exist in Vedas, Shastras, Bhagwad Geeta, Upnishads, Mahabharat, Valmiki Ramayan and other ancient as well as present Vedic holy granths. So, learned of Vedas do not accept it, being against the Vedas. You see, Vedas like Yajurveda mantra 7/48 and Rigveda Mantra 10/135/1,2 tell that happiness and sorrows are the result of our own deeds-good and bad of previous lives and the said deeds which are being done in present times, its result will be borne in next births. So, in happiness and sorrows, what vaastu shastra or navgrah poojan, mangalik, kaal sarp dosh, pitra dosh, Nadi dosh, bhoot pooja etc., will do? So, learned of Vedas do not accept it, being against the eternal knowledge of Vedas which emanates directly from God.
You see, ancient Yogis, Rishi-Munis used to live in a natural cave where they used to do worship/meditation and got final liberation. In natural cave, where vaastu shastra exists, where there is no window, door, cross-ventilation,etc? Instead, there also live several snakes and other wild animals etc., but they never cause harm to anyone and live in harmony with each other. If they are experiencing changes in their life, it is not due to vaastu but due to time of experiencing result of pious deeds of previous lives. Otherwise, everybody who has adopted changes in their houses, due to vaastu shastra should feel changes of happiness like in your cousin’s case, which is not there.
One thing more, it is not sure that the changes which occurred due to their own pious deeds will remain forever, if your cousin has some other deeds to face in future then happiness will get over. So, one should always do daily havan with ved mantra and name jaap of God to make permanent change to feel happiness in life because the said worship destroys the previous lives’ bad deeds and one should also therefore, should make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang yog to learn the process of doing daily Havan/Yajyen and name jaap of God, etc.
