Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Sitting of owl anywhere or anytime has no good or bad effect on anyone. Owl is a bird as God has given it also the wings to fly. Therefore, it may fly anywhere and sit anywhere. So, it has no concern with karmas (deeds) theory. A false custom has been made by somebody. For example- Yajurveda mantra 7/48 clearly states that we the human-beings are free to do good or bad deeds but result is awarded by Almighty God in the shape of happiness and sorrows respectively. Similarly, Bhagwad Geeta shloka 2/47 states that we have to discharge our duties and do the deeds only without considering the result thereof because result is awarded by God. Rigveda mantra 10/135/1, 2 states that we the human-beings have been blessed with human-body by God to face the result of our previous lives’ deeds (good and bad) and deeds done in the present life will be borne in the future births.
According to mantra 3, those who make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga, they can destroy the effect of their previous lives’ deeds and can attain a long, happy life. Therefore, the sitting of owl on house has no relevance. We must beware of false prophets, pandits etc., who tell us such false self-made theories, which are not mentioned in Vedas.
It has been named as Mahamritunjaya jaap by somebody which makes no difference. But, we must know that it is Yajurveda mantra 3/60. You may recite the same as many times as you can. It is a ved mantra. So, it gives good result and never bad result. However, in addition, if you do daily havan both times with this mantra, it will give you more benefit. You are also advised to study my book, Vedas- A Divine light Part-II in which detailed description of mantra has been given. It can be sent on receipt of your postal address, if you desire, excluding postal charges.
S: Sat Shri Akal Swamiji . Thank you for replying me. Now iam feeling relieved regarding the manglick thing. But like you said Vedas preach not to give heart to opposite sex before marriage. I understand it little. According to me it is said so because a man and woman relationship is a pious one and one must have some mann maryada. May be it is said because one then will get a habit even after marriage of a a having extra marital affairs. I mean then one will not know ones limit and will not respect the said relationship Please correct me if iam wrong. I want to know what are the 4 vedas./ how can i do that? Since its written in the vedas that one must not give heart to some guy before marriage. I don’t hate him. I know my limits that there are certain things which are to be done after marriage. and it is something I adhere to it. Even he adheres it What if the couple are sincere towards each other n repect their parents. and do what ever they say.. So according to the Vedas , i have committed a big crime then . And then I guess will be punished 2 ..
Swami Ram Swarup: Sat Sri Akalji and my blessings to you, my daughter. Yes, one should never give heart to opposite sex before marriage otherwise it is a sin to go against the Vedas. Not only Vedas, but every religion does not allow any boy and girl to meet, touch and give heart to the opposite sex, before marriage. But, due to lack of deep study of Vedas, shastras and other holy granths, the earth is bearing the burden of such kind of sins, at present nothing can be done. Yes, man and woman relation is pious one, this is one thought. But how to maintain purity is another thought. That is why, the Vedas, to make the relation pious and religious for entire life, have preached to maintain celibacy properly before marriage. You see, the time of Mahabharat and before that also, it was Vedic time and family life was happy, by maintaining and following the preach of Vedas. Regarding Vedas, I paste my article below-
God has made universe and blessed us with human body to do pious deeds to attain salvation only. He has not made any heaven or hell. All have to face the result of their deeds, good or bad here only, even by taking rebirth. (Rigveda mantras 10/135/1,2 refer). God has not only made universe but has also given knowledge of four Vedas where answers to your and everyone’s questions have been given. There are four Vedas:
1. Rig Veda – gives knowledge of science, matter of the universe like sun, moon, air, body etc., etc.
2. Yajurveda – gives knowledge of all the deeds and duties to be performed by men, women, students, leaders, king, agriculturist etc., etc., etc.
3. Samveda – gives knowledge how to worship God who gives peace and long happy life etc. In this way, details of Yoga philosophy, qualities, supreme deeds and nature of the God are also given.
4. Atharvaveda – gives details of God, medical science and details of medicine etc.
Actually in four Vedas there is unlimited knowledge. Yajurveda mantra 40/8 says that God is everywhere, is Almighty, formless, devoid of nervous system, purest, away from sins and does not have to face any result of any karmas (deeds), knows every soul, knows what is in everyone’s mind, no body has made God, but God creates universe, has given the eternal knowledge of four Vedas and always gives the said knowledge at the beginning of every universe to know the science and deeds to all concern. Similarly four Vedas say about God that God is an omnipresent, omniscient, formless, beyond imagination and beyond calculation. Actually God has unlimited qualities. There is only one God who creates, nurses, destroys the universe and recreates. Atharvaveda mantra 4/1/1 also says that God gives the knowledge of Vedas at the beginning of the earth to four Rishis of non-sexual creation. And thereafter only public listens Vedas through Rishis Munis as yet and become learned. Rig-Veda gives knowledge of Almighty, Yajurveda gives knowledge of karmas (deeds), Samveda tells about worship-Yoga philosophy and Atharvaveda about medicines and God. Actually all Vedas commonly says about God also, so this is about Vedas in short. But the knowledge of Vedas is endless.
It is a fundamental law that knowledge is always given by somebody. Otherwise knowledge can’t be gained at any cost. If a new born baby is nursed well in a dense jungle and is not educated then he will not be able to gain any knowledge even if he becomes young or old. So we have to think about the origin of the knowledge prevalent in the world today. In this connection the Vedas themselves say that God gives this knowledge to four Rishis. As said by Rishi Patanjali in Yoga shastra sutra 1/26, God is the first Guru of the four Rishis. Yajurveda mantra 31/7 also refers. This is all in short about Vedas.
The Vedas are not a book, rather it is a knowledge originated in the heart of Rishis. At the time of beginning of the earth those Rishis preached Vedas by mouth and all others remembered the same orally. At that time there was no pen, pencil, paper, etc. This process of studying Vedas orally remained till Mahabharata
time. Muni Vyas too remembered Vedas traditionally by heart. Then Muni Vyas for the first time wrote the Vedas on Bhoj patra about 5300 years ago. In 16th century when printing press came into existence then the Vedas were printed. Still Vedas are not those which have been printed but those which are preached by mouth by an Acharya/yogi and the printed Vedas are called Sanhita.
Now if somebody worships a statue etc., then it is their own creation please but Vedas deny. According to Vedas the best worship of the God is Yajyen for which all Vedas are self-proof. Yajurveda mantra 31/16 says that the learned persons worship God by Yajyen.
So many people have asked me that most of the scholars/preachers of different religion state that their religion incorporates all matters of the world including science. What about Vedas? I wrote so many Ved Mantras describing science matters therein. For example, Yajurveda Mantra 3/6 states “Ayam Gauhu Swaha Pitram Puraha Prayan Mataram Prishnihi Aakrameet Asadat”.
This earth revolves around the Sun in the space and it also rotates on its own axis. Vedas are eternal like God because Vedas emanate from God. Now, according to Vedas, this present creation is about 1 Arab, 96 crores, 8 lakh 53,111 years old. So are the Vedas but as said in Rigveda Mantra 10/191/3 the present creation is same as was the previous one and this process of creation is eternal. So are the Vedas which emanate from eternal God. This all concludes that Vedas are the oldest in this creation also and no other book of science, maths or pertaining to spiritualism is written before Vedas.
Like the above example of rotation and revolution of earth, the significance of whole present science is mentioned in Vedas. We can see that whatever is happening in the universe, is all according to the Vedas. For example, occurance of six seasons, actions of Sun, moon, process of death, birth, worship, yoga philosophy, atomic energy, agriculture, animal husbandry, knowledge of politics, administration,
architecture, solar energy, knowledge of home appliances like mixer, grinder, business rules, about men, women, children, marriage, Brahamcharya, education, clothes etc., etc., i.e., knowledge right from a straw to Brahma is all in Vedas. God is Almighty and has unlimited powers. So through His power He is able to originate the knowledge of Vedas in the heart of four Rishis without pencil, paper, help of mouth or any other worldly assistance.
We, i.e., the whole world depends on Almighty God but God is forever independent. That is why, He is God. We are the souls who reside in human bodies. We need assistance of senses, perceptions, mind and body to do deeds but not God.
Nowadays, so many saints are writing books. What is the background to write their books? Background is clear that they have first studied or listened the preach from their Gurus, keeping aside the matter of truth or falsehood. And after studying or listening the same, they became able to write the books. So this is also fundamental law, based on which, the ancient Rishis first listened Vedas and when they became learned then only they wrote the Vedic books like Valmiki Ramayana, six shastras, Mahabharat (Bhagwad Geeta), Upanishads, etc., etc. So, first the knowledge of Vedas is initiated in the universe and afterwards other books come into existence.
Somebody may say that human beings have knowledge by their nature to create anything like books etc., but we see that the newly born baby who is nursed in a jungle, in the absence of knowledge of a learned person, he becomes incapable to do anything. Thus, he can’t be M.A, M.Sc, doctor etc. So there are two types of the words and meanings. First, eternal which are from Almighty God and second, natural made by human beings. Eternal word meanings are always from Vedas i.e., from God. After listening/studying Vedas, human beings become learned and then too based on their own natural knowledge, they make their own words and meanings, literature etc. But it is very much clear that in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, no one can become learned. Nowadays, also people live in dense jungle and do not lead a civilized life because they are not learned as cited above. Vedas are not sects because they emanate direct from God and God is one for all human beings. God creates sun, moon, air, water, food etc., which are meant for the best use of all human beings for their long, happy life. So are the Vedas. So all human beings must accept Vedas as an eternal knowledge from God, for the benefit of whole creation.
Guru Granth Sahib also tells- Omnkar Ved Nirmaye i.e., Vedas knowledge emanates directly from God.
When you both know your limits and have not done any deed against the Vedas, then no question of sin, please. Again, I bless you, my daughter.
