Dave: Dear swamiji pranam! Swamiji I hope you are well, and I would just like to ask you a question that you have said that god has limited prakriti (nature) for the creation. Where in vedas does it state that there Is a finite amount of prakriti that god has? Why cant he have unlimited prakriti? What is the evidence?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. I’ve never used word “limited prakriti”. I’ve only used the word prakriti and no doubt, the prakriti means Raj, Tam, Satva gunnas, is in its limit whereas God has unlimited divine powers and qualities etc. In this connection, you may study Rigved mandal 10, sukta 129 and Yajurved chapter 31.
Ashish: Swamiji Namaste, Swamiji, i was born in an Arya Samaji family, so I know that Murtipooja is Ved-virudh, and we all do Sandhya and Hawan. But persons who are not born in an Arya Samaji Family might never know in life that Murtipooja is ved-virudh. If such persons are doing Murtipooja by their Ignorance, than in that case also it will become a Sin? Because they dont do Murti
Pooja purposely, but by ignorance. Kindly let me know what type of Karma is SIN or PAAP.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji.
To remain as ignorant person is itself a sin because you know the God has created this universe and in the beginning of creation, He originates the knowledge of four Vedas in four Rishis to spread the same to all human beings. In Vedas it is clearly preached by God that all human beings must make contact with learned acharya to study Vedas and to follow it’s preach in life. You, see, if anyone who due to the attraction towards worldly affairs, materialistic articles and duly indulged in illusion, does not obey the Vedas preach, he is declared defaulter in the Vedas and God punishes him. So, it is not a matter that those born in Arya Samaj family, do idol worship, due to ignorance, it is a matter of fundamental law of Vedas that every person should obey Vedas.
