S K: Aum,Namaste swami ji. I am very enthusiastic about your invitation to the ashram. But I have a big doubt I don’t know Sanskrit. 10 yrs ago I have written on this subject. I agree to spend brahmchari life in gurukul Awaking in brahm muhrat, for meditation, for seva, live in maun & total discipline. I have spent whole life in aabhav, spiritual word just like Jitendriya. Please tell me will you will teach me Sanskrit from starting. I am fresher. I have talked to another gurukul & ashrams they are teaching Vedas to Brahmcharis in Sanskrit language. Please tell me in my point of view. Lastly I have listen & feel that there are no prophet, avtar born in the earth therefore not Sri Radhe only. Aum.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Your views are appreciated to learn Sanskrit. My process to teach you Sanskrit will be very slow because I am always busy in daily spiritual life. Though, I would teach you Sanskrit and Vedas, Yog philosophy but again I may tell you that this process will be very very slow. So, you are advised to make contact with any gurukul which is run by Arya samaj. I hope that you will gain Sanskrit knowledge there quickly, if you try hard to learn. As regards Avtar, I paste my article below-
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 Shwetashwataropnishad 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.
Khushi: My respects to you, Please for the time being I’m performing parvati swayamvar mantra daily. The pitr season has started as from today, I’m a bit confused whether I can continue reciting this mantra during this period or not. Thanking you in advance for your help.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Parvati swayamvar mantras are not mentioned in Vedas, please. So, learned of Vedas do not accept it. God is Formless, who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. We have to worship Him only by following the Vedas. However, you may go ahead at your own. The Ved-mantras are recited in all season. But, sorry, I
do not know Parvati swayamvar mantras.
Brijesh: Please tell me the sandhi vichade of bhavishya.
Swami Ram Swarup: Sandhi-vichched is as under- Bhavishya= Bhu+Lrit= Shatri, Sya.
