DSS: गुरुजी को मेरा दंडोत्वत चरण स्पर्श। स्वामीजी क्या यह possible है यदि ब्रह्मऋषि focus करें for exp. सुशांत का murder या suicide? कहने का मतलब उसकी यथा स्थिति क्या है यह ब्रह्मऋषि जान सकता है। दूसरा सवाल है, suicide करना वेद विरुद्ध है? मरने के बाद उनकी क्या punishment होती होगी? मार्गदर्शन करें।

Swami Ram Swarup: मेरा आपको हार्दिक आशीर्वाद, बेटा। बेटा, ब्रह्मऋषि जान सकते हैं लेकिन उन्हें समाधी में बैठना पडेगा। यह punishment तो भगवान ही देता है।

(Rigved mantra 7/59/12)

“TRIYAMBAKAM YAJAMAHE” is the Rigved Mantra number 7/59/12. Its meaning is (TRIYAMBAKAM) whose knowledge remains constant in past, present and future. Actually “AMBAKAM” means eyes, TRI means three i.e., He who has three eyes. Here three eyes means past, present and future, the three phrases of time i.e., whose knowledge remains unchangeable in past, present , future times and who is present and sees past, present and future.

(YAJAMAHE) do daily worship ((SUGANDHIM), who makes us the best and the purest (PUSHTIVARDHANAM) who increases the strength of our body and soul.

Meaning:- We must daily worship the God whose knowledge remains unchangeable in past, present and future and who is present and sees the past, present and future. He makes us the best and the purest and increases the strength of our body and soul.

Idea:- Yajyen and Ashtang Yog Practice is the best worship of God. So, we must daily do Yajyen and Ashtang Yog Practice.

(BANDHANAAT) connected to (LATAA) creeper (URVARUKMIV) like a ripened cucumber (MRITYOHO) from death (MUKSHEEYA) get liberated.

Meaning:- With the grace of God, may I get liberated from death like a ripened cucumber which gets released from the creeper.

Idea:- The cucumber automatically gets separated from the creeper when it gets fully ripened. It becomes tasty even. Similarly, by the worship of God i.e., while performing Yajyen and Practice of Ashtang Yog Philosophy, I may also attain full disease free age i.e., hundred years or more and get free from the death automatically.

(MA MUKSHIMAHEE) may we never be separated from faith, belief (AMRITAM) from supreme, divine pleasure of final liberation.

Idea:- This human body is blessed by God to do daily Yajyen wherein knowledge of Vedas is also listened from Brahma i.e., learned acharya who is a philosopher of four Vedas and Ashtang Yog. Our faith and belief must never diminish from following the said path of worship to get final liberation.

Main Idea:- In the above mantra , we pray to God. There are two types of prayers-

Prayer emanates direct from God in the shape of Ved mantras like above mantra which are eternal, true and the best.

Prayers which are man-made in the shape of so many shlokas etc., written by human-beings i.e., saints etc.

No doubt that the prayers which emanate from God are the best. So, the human being must know the deep philosophy of the Vedas and must worship God and must do prayer of God as mentioned in Vedas which will ever be beneficial for all mankind, we must only worship the God whose description has been given in the Vedas by God Himself. Who can know God as God knows Himself? So, description of God in Vedas is eternal, true and the best.

Secondly, prayer is not enough. God states in Vedas (Refer Rigved mantra 1/10/5) that one must also do hard, pious deeds to fulfil one’s prayer otherwise prayer will not help the person. Based on the Philosophy of Vedas, nowadays the true phrase is famous-“God Helps Those Who Help Themselves”. So we must ourselves do hard, pious deeds according to our prayer. Worship for the God/Gods against the Vedas are always sorrowful.

So the idea of the above mantra is clear wherein it is mentioned “TRIYAMBAKAM YAJAMAHE” i.e., Oh! God, we do Yajyen (worship) ourselves. So we can never depute any other person to perform the Yajyen from the above ved mantra because mantra states to perform the Yajyen ourselves. Mostly, due to lack of knowledge of ved mantras, we engage some other person to perform Yajyen which according to Vedas, can never be beneficial.

Because “YAJAMAHE” is “ATMANEPAD DHATU”. Dhatu means root word. It means YAJAMAHE word is applicable to personal matter. So we will have to perform Yajyen, personally. In Vedas its name has not been mentioned as “Mahamritynjaye mantra”.

However, if somebody has stated its name as Mahamritynjaye jaap then it makes no difference if we are aware of the truth-

That it is Rigved mantra 7/59/12 (quoted above) and also Yajurved mantra 3/60. So the study of Vedas and above quoted mantras reveals –“TRIYAMBAKAM YAJAMAHE” i.e., we must perform Yajyen with Ved mantras ourselves and do hard pious deeds i.e., listening of Vedas , performing of Yajyen and practice of Ashtang Yog Philosophy daily to fulfil the prayer mentioned in above mantras i.e., Oh! God may I be liberated from death and get divine pleasure of final liberation. The hard, pious deed must be carried out while discharging all our moral duties as mentioned in Yajurved mantra 40/2.

Anonymous: प्रणाम जी। जब मैं सुबह उठता हूँ तो उठते ही मेरे सामने उन लोगों के चेहरे आ जाते हैं जो कई साल पहले expire हो चुके। मेरे दिन की शुरुआत बहुत ही अशुभ होती है। बहुत परेशान हूँ जी।

Swami Ram Swarup: मेरा आपको आशीर्वाद, बेटा। सामने चेहरे का दिख जाना कोई अशुभ नहीं है। यदि आप सुबह और शाम थोड़ी साधना में बैठेंगे, नाम जाप करेंगे, daily दोनों time अग्निहोत्र करेंगे और पूर्णाहुति के बाद परमेश्वर से प्रार्थना करेंगे कि ईश्वर मुझे यह चेहरे दिखाई ना दें, तो यह दिखने बन्द हो जाएँगे। मेरा तुम्हें आशीर्वाद है कि जल्दी ही यह चेहरे दिखने बन्द हो जाएँगे।
