JP: Jay Shri Krishna Swami! Thank you very much for reply me for my last question. Swami ji! Few weeks ago my elder brother has died due to heart attack so me and my family were upset due to funeral of him, again we faced one more Durghatna that my younger brother died on last month and he was in his early 30s. Actually he went for a picnic with his office staff at Sea
side, they were five person who drawing, two person died and three are alive. In two one is my brother. Please tell me as my brother died in sea water, is their any dosh? Please reply me soon I shall be very grateful.
Swami Ram Swarup: I am sorry to listen the sudden death of your elder brother. May
God give peace to departed soul. No doubt, it is a sad news but the soul which has gone to heavenly abode can’t come back. So, Atharvaveda states not to weep and must have maintained courage. Everybody should pray God in a Yajyen to give the peace to soul as well as peace to the
family. As regards any dosh of the soul who left the body in sea (water etc.) the said matter is not mentioned in Vedas, Shastras and other true granths. So, learned of Vedas preach not to worry about the same. About death, I paste my article for your information-

After death

Yajurveda mantra 3/55, says, “DEVAIYAH JANAH NAH PUNAH MANAH DADATU” i.e., by blessings (preach and true education of Vedas) may learned Acharya give us next birth of human being so that we may again be able to learn the truth of Vedas and to get salvation. So one must always adopt true path by which he gets rebirth of human being to continue the real spiritualism to get salvation etc., because Atharvaveda mantra 9/10/16 further says that human being who has done pious deeds and adopted true path they get pious human body in the next birth, otherwise soul gets the lowest/contemptible body, like animals, birds etc. Mantra is APAANG PRAANGETI SWDHAYAA GRIBHITAH AMARTYO MARTYENAA SAYONIHI. TA SHASHVANTA VISHUCHINA VIYANTA NYA NYAM CHIKYURN NI CHIKYURNYAM.

Soul according to its good or bad deeds(APANGETI) takes bodies of animals, birds, insects etc., and (PRANG) bodies of Rishis, Munis, i.e., (uuch Yoni) best bodies after leaving the present body. The soul (SWDHAYAA GRIBHITAH) duly attached with its own power of taking birth according to pious deeds and sins, enters other bodies (AMARTAYAH) though the soul is away from death, being immortal but after death of bodies, takes new bodies. These ideas of Vedas has very well been mentioned in Bhagwad Geeta shlok 2/20 wherein Yogeshwar Shri Krishna says (AJO NITYAH SHASHWATOAYAM PURAANNO NA HANYTE HANYAMANNE SHARIRE ) i.e., the soul is (AJAH NITAYAH SHASHWATOH) never takes birth and is eternal (NAHANYATE HANAYMANNE SHARIRE) in fact after death of body too soul is never dead being immortal. (TASHASHVANTA) this process of death and birth of bodies and souls is eternal.

(VISHUCHINA VYANTA) soul and bodies go far away to different directions [soul goes to Savita etc., {given below} according to Yajurveda chapter 39 and then takes birth and gets another body and five elements of body go to space and are mixed within air, fire etc., according to Yajurveda mantra 40/15] (ANYAM NICHIKYHU) many learned know about this fact (ANYAM NICHIKYHU) another who lack knowledge of Vedas, do not know the fact, i.e., we mostly know our body but not ourselves, i.e., soul. Death is sure i.e., the body will have to be cremated one day.

In Atharvaveda mantra 8/8/11 ‘Yamdut’ means = ‘YAM’ means God, and ‘dut’ means storm, cyclone, flood, earthquake, heavy rains, etc., etc., in mantra the air is Yam. So when a soul is to leave the body then by the power of God, sutratma air enters the body and takes the soul out of it then goes to Savita, etc.

In 39th chapter of Yajurveda the process of this cremation is mentioned. This process is also called as “NARMEDH YAJYEN”, “PURUSH MEDH YAJYEN” and “DAH KARAM” and “ANTEYESHATI KARAM”. Atharvaveda mantra 10/8/26 says “YEH CHAKAR SAH JAJAR” means He (God) who makes the body, He destroys the same one day. Sense of Yajurveda mantra 39/5 is that when the soul leaves the body then the soul wanders in so many places, takes another body according to its previous deeds (karmas). Yajurveda mantra 39/6 says that the soul after leaving the body, on the first day goes to Savita (sun), second day agnihi (fire), third Vaayu (normal air), fourth Aditya, fifth chandrma (moon), sixth ritu (seasons), seventh marutah, eighth brihaspati (tiniest air), ninth mitrah (breathing), tenth varunah (udan air), eleventh indrah (electricity), twelfth Vishvedevah (in all divine qualities). Then, after wandering in sky, gets body according to previous deeds. So these twelve days are completed, then after 13 days the soul takes another body. Rigveda mandal 10 sukta 135 says that normally soul after getting body faces the result of its past lives’ deeds and under influence of illusion (duly attracted towards illusion) does sins and again gets birth to face the sins. The soul is immortal and always separate from body. When an aspirant meets with a learned Acharya and gets spiritual education, then the fourth mantra says that the soul gets salvation.

When soul leaves the body at the time of death, the soul in the “sushupt” stage (i.e., like coma) wanders for thirteen days in the sky and thereafter based on his karmas acquires a new body in the womb of mother. In case of liberated soul, the soul remains always with God and enjoys the divine pleasure of salvation. (Yajurveda chapter 39 refers).

In this time, I am with your family and pray God to give peace to everybody. My blessings to you, also.

M: Swami ji, I am a Hindu and I have been married to a Muslim guy for 2 years. Before marriage everything was fine but now we are on the verge of divorce. We keep fighting all the
time. He does not acts like a husband and is not all concerned about my well being and still behaves like he is not married. His family also doesn’t likes me and they keep asking for divorce. I don’t want to divorce him please help me and save my marriage.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. In this connection, I would only advise you that if you feel that your relation with your husband will never be faithful in future and
they shall be harmful to your peace and life then immediately you should keep yourself separate from him and apply for divorce. On the other hand, if you still want to maintain your relation with
husband then obviously you’ll have to bear the consequences and every situation, happily. In most of cases, such relations do not remain stable.
