Vishal: Namaste Guruji, Have you got state of Samadhi in your life yet? Has Veda revealed to your goodself in the state of Samadhi? Which Veda gets revealed in the state of Samadhi? Please satisfy me with a detailed answer to understand all events happens with a yogi.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my son. Infact, the samadhi matter is not discussed on e-mail please.
Pavan: Swami ji pranam Tulsidas ji rachit ramcharit manas “Sunderkand” me kitne prakar ke “Bhaav” hai? For example.. Love, separation, hate, anger, etc.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. It is a long, time that I read Tulsikrit Ramayan. Most of the portion of the Ramayan I have forgot.
Jo koi bhi Shraddha poorvak vidwaan se vedon ka adhyayan kar leta hai, Vedic shiksha ko Jeevan mein dharann karta hai, yogabhyaas, yajyen karta hai, naam simran karta hai to uske paas samay nahi bachta ki dubara dubara Tulsikrit Ramayan padey. Samay ki kami se main bhi nahi pad pata or kai baatein Tulsikrit Ramayan mein ved virudh hone se, jo vedon ke vidwaan hain , woh isey zyada nahi padte . Jaise apnee apnee shraddha ke anusaar sundarkand ko sab maante hain, parantu vedon ke vidwaan jab padte hain ki sursaa ka munh 100 yojan arthat 500 meel ka ho gaya to yeh scientifically aur Vedic vichar se theek nahi hai, itiyadi. Isliye main aur zyada comments nahi kar sakta kyunki mujhe ab Tulsikrit Ramayan zyadatar yaad hee nahi rahee.
Har Narayan: Maharaj ji sabse bade bhagvan kaun hai vishnu ya Shankar? Shristi ki rachna kaun krta hai? Shiv Putnam me shristi ki rachna shiv krte hai aur Vishnu Puran me Vishnu bhagvan. Kya hamare dharm grantho se chherkhani ki gayi hai? Mahoday must reply plz. And give me suggestion for some books for it.
Swami Ramswarup: Bhagwan ke Vishay mein bade chhote ka prashan nahi hai. Prashan yeh hai ki Bhagwan kisko kehte hain? Ab aapke baare mein aap hee theek tarah se jaante ho koi doosra nahi jaanta. Jab aap bataoge to doosra bhi jaan jayega. Isee tarah Ishwar ke bare mein jab tak Ishwar nahi batayega to Ishwar ko kaun jaan sakta hai arthat koi bhi nahi jaan sakta. Short mein bus itna samajh lo ki jab nayee nayee srishti bantee hai, tab us srishti mein koi gyani athwa guru nahi hota. Janta sab agyni gotee hai. Us samay Parmeshwar hee manushya ko vedon ka gyan deta hai. Un vedon mein arthat Yajurved 40/8 mein Ishwar apna swaroop bataa rahaa hai ki Weh – “ Pariyagaat’ sab jagah hai arthat srishti ke kann- kann mein hai.
Shukram arthat sarvashaktimaan hai, Usey sansar ka koi karya karne ke liye jaise srishtee rachna ka karya , karmanusaar karma phal deney ka karya, varsha aur rituon ( seasons) laney ka karya , mrityu ke samay jeevatma ko shareer se bahar nikalne ka karya kisi ko mrityu – kisi ko janam deney ka karya itiyadi karne ke liye Usey kisi kee help kee zaroorat nahi hai. Kyunki Weh sarvashaktimaan hai, sab anant shaktiyon ka maalik hai. Isliye Ravann, Kansa aadi ko maarne ke liye bhi Usey kisi kee sahayta kee zaroorat nahi hai. Uskee matra Shakti hee kaafi hai.Weh Parmeshwar “Akaya” arthat shareer rahit hai, nirakar hai, uskee murti nahi hotee; “Avrannam” Usmein chhed nahi kiya ja sakta, itna suksham hai, “ Asnavirum” Uskee antadiyaan, heart, liver nervous system itiyadi kuchh nahi hota “ shuddham” arthat Parmeshwar shuddh hai hamesha shuddh rehta hai Usey nahane itiyadi kee zaroorat nahi hai. “apaap viddham” arthat paap se pare “kavihi” arthat krantdarshi hai. “Manishi” sabke mann kee janne wala hai. “Paribhuhu”paapiyon ko dand dene wala hai, “Swayambhuhu” anadi swaroop hai arthat Ishwar ko kisi ne nahi banaya aur na Ishwar aisa padarth hai ki Ussey kuchh baney. Weh ajar, amar, avinashi hai. ‘Yathatathyato arthan” yatharthta se vedon ka gyan “shashwatibhayaha” anadi kaal roop “ samabhayaha” praja ko deta aaya hai. Jo Ishwar ne yeh apna swaroop vedon mein prakat kiya hai aur bhi apne anant gunn vedon mein prakat kiye hain, agar manushya Ishwar ke bataye in gunnon ko nahi manta aur nirakar Parmeshwar ki Pooja nahi karta to isme Ishwar ka dosh nahi hai. Har insaan vidwanon se pehle yugon ki bhanti vedon ka Adhyayan kare tabhi weh Ishwar ko jaan payega aur Uski theek theek Pooja karke sukhi ho payega. Isliye Ishwar murti nahi hai aur murti roop brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh nahi hai. Is Vishay mein neeche article paste hai .
Are Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh Gods?
Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh are not God. Vedas tell that there is only one formless God who never takes birth. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe. His power is enough to create and control the whole universe. He is Almighty i.e., He has all unlimited powers and therefore He does not need any assistance to create, nurse and destroy the universe by Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. If God needs assistance then He will not be called Almighty. So God does not need any support but we all humans as well as all living beings need His support and blessings everytime. However, in Vedas, there are innumerable names of Almighty God according to His divine qualities. So Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh etc., are also the names of the formless Almighty God. Brahma means the greatest. Vishnu means omnipresent and Mahesh means the greatest.
God is formless
Being formless there is no need of statue or temple of God according to Vedas. As a matter of fact, you, I or every human being, lives in a body. Body is separate, we are called souls. Vedas say soul has no form even. Then also we know each other. For example even if you have not seen the photograph of King Akbar then, you can know Akbar by means of the study of his qualities. So is the case with the God. If an aspirant really goes to his Guru and listens Vedas like Shri Ram, and ancient kings and their public then he will be able to know hundred percent about formless God. Then comes realization for which Vedas (especially Samveda) says that he who performs Yajyen, does jaap (according to Vedas) and practises Ashtang Yoga Philosophy while remaining in family like Shri Ram etc., he sure realizes ,being eternal law.
If we will meditate concentrating outside our body which is also against Vedas/Ashtang Yoga Philosophy, then our attention will always naturally remain outside i.e., attached with outer world i.e., decoration/music/dances etc. In that case subject matter of God will be over. It will be converted into spending fun, doing dances and singing attractive songs by ladies and gents, which is totally against Vedas. Thus the chapter of praising God, True Acharya, Rishi-Munis, performing Yajyen, practice of Ashtang Yoga, eternal knowledge of Vedas etc., will be over.
It is also baseless to say that study of Vedas and practice of yoga philosophy is difficult. It is self made story because Vedas are also called Shruti i.e., Vedas are to be listened first and not to be studied. So to listen to the Vedas, a learned Acharya is needed. The Acharya will explain the Ved mantras in the Yajyen in your own language i.e., in English or Urdu etc., and for an aspirant to do asan, pranayaam, meditation etc., is also not difficult. It is all difficult for those human beings, including present false prophets, (who are against the Vedas), who are lazy, can’t awake early in the morning to listen Vedas and fail to do practice of yoga philosophy. Those people are always after money, materialistic articles and pomp and show etc.
Vedas are not written or spoken by God. This knowledge is emanated from God and is originated in the heart of four Rishis as stated above. God is Almighty i.e., He has all powers. So He needs no assistance to do deeds of universe. In human body alive soul resides and soul is dependent, soul requires mouth to speak, eye to see, hand to write etc., etc. but not God. From His power God originates the knowledge of Vedas in the rishis without writing, or speaking etc. Vedas’ knowledge is divine. The fundamental of the Vedas is this that it was not written or spoken. The knowledge by the power of God was originated about one Arab 96 crore, 8 lakh and 53,111 years ago. Then first time the four rishis of nonsexual creation started pronunciation of the mantras by the power of God. God wanted them to know word meanings and sense of the mantras and therefore the rishis knew all. Then first time the four rishis started pronunciation of the mantras. They taught the mantras to other ignorant people. Then more rishis were produced who knew the Vedas by heart by listening only. There was no paper, ink or pen there. The Vedas were being learnt orally and traditionally this process is yet in force. But mostly not by heart but taking help of the printed book. So printed books are not called Vedas but these are called samhita.
Samhita means the collection of Ved mantras. Therefore Present printed books cannot be considered as Vedas and will never be in future, but samhita. Kapil Muni throws light on this point in his Sankhya Shastra sutra 5/48 that when a rishi does tapsya in the shape of Yajyen, study of Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga then the Ved mantras still (now also) originate in heart of the Rishi and the rishi pronounces the mantras. Those mantras are called Vedas, which emanate from God. So Vedas must first be listened (study) from alive Acharya (Guru who knows Vedas). Then only Samhita (books of Vedas) can help.
Srishti kee rachna upar gunn yukt formless God karta hai. Is Vishay mein bhi neeche article paste kiya hai:-
The creation is eternal and automatic. There is no date of creation of the following:
(A) Almighty God who is alive, immortal, formless, creates, nurses and destroys the universe. He never indulges in any maya, mahamaya, illusion and deeds (good or bad. Yajurveda Mantra 40/8 and Yog shastra Sutra 1/26 also refer)
(B) Soul: Soul is alive, the purest, away from sins etc. but illusion covers the soul due to which soul forgets his original form and hence remains in sorrows, problems etc.
C) Prakriti: Non-alive and has three qualities. i.e., Raj, tam, Satva. At a proper time, the power of God acts in prakriti and the universe is created. So the creation is eternal and automatic.
Raj, Tam and Satva are the three qualities of prakriti. When the said gunnas remain idle dormant i.e., do not work, then combination of these three gunnas(qualities) in dormant stage is called prakriti and this time is called “final destruction” of the universe. When an appropriate time comes, the creation is to be started again. Then the power of God works in the above three gunnas i.e., in the prakriti and immediately the creation starts. Rajo gunn is a sign of sensuousness etc., Tamo gunn signifies laziness and sato gunn signifies ego, pride. Our human body is also made of the said three gunnas.
Vedas tell that there are three eternal/immortal matters- first: Almighty God, second: souls, third: prakriti. Almighty God creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates it. The said process of creation is eternal/immortal/everlasting. Almighty God creates the universe from prakriti. When the raj, tam and satva gunnas of prakriti remain idle (dormant condition/inactive) then creation does not take place. At an appropriate time, a power of Almighty God acts in prakriti (i.e., in Raj, tam and satva gunnas). Immediately the process of creation starts and the first matter of prakriti is made which is called –Mahat i.e., mind; from Mahat- ahankar is made, from ahankar panch (5) tan matrayein, from panch (5) tanmatrayein, panch (5) mahabhoot are created. From panch mahabhoot, the entire matter of universe i.e., Sun, Moon air, water, our bodies, bodies of other living beings etc., are created. The whole creation is thus created from prakriti and remains still (in active) like a statue. This creation is called non-sexual creation. In the said creation, the young human bodies are created which are neither old nor babies. Then by the power of God, in the said bodies, breathing system (prann vaayu) starts operating. At last, God enters into the universe and immediately all the humans and other living beings become alive and start functioning. Similarly, the non-alive matters like Sun, moon, earth, air, water etc., start their respective functions.
Creation, Science, worldly matters etc., is not possible until the same is created by someone. Secondly, knowledge is attained when knowledge is imparted by someone.
Rigved mantra 10/129/ 1-6 throw light about creation that at that time, there was nothing and no living beings did exist. So there was no learned acharya who could give the knowledge to the newly created living beings like parents who educate the children to make them able to speak language and to know about the matters like crow, animals, chapati, ghee, sun, moon i.e., all matters of the world. See, if a newly born baby is managed to live in dense jungle and nursed well but he is not given education about the worldly matters etc. i.e., mathematics, science, animals, sun, moon etc., then even at the young age of 20-25, 30 years, he will not be able to speak any language and when he will be brought out of the cave of dense jungle and will be asked about the sun, moon, animals, birds before him, then he will not be able to reply because he was not given the said knowledge.
When we see towards sun, moon, air, space, human body etc. It is clearly understood that the said creation has not been made by any human being but Almighty God, from whom the knowledge of four Vedas emanates. In Vedas, the knowledge right from straw to Brahma has been mentioned. So in the beginning of non-sexual earth, the Vedas originated in the heart of four rishis: Agni, Vaayu, Aditya and Angira, and from the rishis the knowledge of science, deeds and worship along with every matter is being given to the public by which the public became educated scientist and wrote books, etc.
In Vedas as well as in fourth chapter of Yog Shastras of Rishi Patanjali, it is mentioned that those who do not believe in God are provided more and more facilities by nature and such people get spoiled etc.
On the contrary those who worship God, they naturally try to kill their desires and accordingly under the law, nature, help them to follow the true path to realize the God.
It is also pertinent to mention here that in Vedas, there is no mention of avtarwad or any proper noun, please. Vedas do not even contain any story or past, present or future life of anyone. Vedas contain knowledge i.e., entire science, form of deeds/duties and worship of God. Actually Vedas give knowledge right from straw to Brahma (God) of entire universe.
All four Vedas tell to worship a formless, Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient God who creates, nurses and destroys the universe. God was one, is one and shall ever remain one. He is unchangeable, unchallengeable and beyond description. He has unlimited qualities and thus unlimited names but is one. Because He is Almighty and needs no help of anyone to create, nurse and destroy the universe therefore no need to take avtar.
Han hamare dharam granthon se chhedkhani kee gayi hai aur kai swayam manushyon ne ved virudh asatya granth likhey hain. Kyunki hum kareeb 800 varsh mugulon ke aur 200 varsh angrezon ke gulaam rahe hain. Is beech bhi hamari sanskriti ko nasht karne ke liye hamare granthon se chhedkhani kee gayi hai.
