Anonymous: Namaste Guruji. Please translate &explain the said Verses word by word some Arabi fanatic to destroy the Indian culture & demean Veda are translating it like this Chandogya Upanishad 8:12:3 says Aivamevedh samprasado-Asma chacchsharira….param jyotirup
sampadh……….prano yukt. Thus does that serene being, arising from this body, appear in its own form, assoon as it has approached the highest light. He is the highest person (uttamapurusha). He moves about there laughing, playing, and rejoicing, be it withwomen, carriages, or relatives, never minding that body into which he was born.”
Swami Ram Swarup: Being a lengthy task of translation and I’m also busy in doing daily spiritual routine. Word to word translation is not possible, please. However, you can send your postal address along with this question, I shall send the translation by post soon on receipt of your postal address. However, entire meaning of the shloka is as under:-
This,the soul is also without body (a shareer). The soul resides in the body. But when the soul makes contact with Param Jyoti i.e., The Supreme Light Brahma,then the soul also starts knowing Him. For example:- the air residing in thespace is not seen with the eyes but when air makes contact with the sun and itsrays, the air starts blowing. Then it seems as if it is visible because the air produces its pure form. It reaches at the state which is called “Uttam Purush”when the man reaches at this stage then even residing in the body, the soul always feels that it is without body.
At this stage, the soul with the body, while eating, playing, enjoying with the ladies (mother, wife, sister etc.,) walking moves about in such a way as his body, his relatives people surrounding him are not remembered. Whatever the deeds are performed by the soul in the world, he does as if it
has no connection with the body. Due to the contact with Supreme Light i.e., Almighty God, the soul always sees himself separate from the body. Soul feels separation as horses are yoked to the chariot. Similarly the respiratory system of the soul and the soul himself is yoked to the
body in the form of chariot soul is not himself a body and there is no relation of the soul to body.
Anonymous: In Rigved ishaan was called what
Swami Ram Swarup: Esh means Ishwar i.e., God. In rigveda mantra 8/1/20 it is stated (Eeshanum)Eeshan karne wale Parmatma ki ; of the God, the Lord (kaha) who (na) not (Yachishut)prayer i.e., who is there, who would not pray to God i.e., there is no one onthe earth who would not like to pray to God i.e., everybody likes to pray God .So eeshan means the Lord, i.e., God.
Sushant: Swami ji,…I want to know that are there any ghost or spirits in the world, if yes the for what purpose they are in our world?
Swami Ram Swarup: No, please. There is no ghost spirit in the world. In this connection, I paste my article.
There is no existence of ghosts. But mostly the people who want to earn money or try totake enjoyment make it popular through falsehood and self-made frauds. They only spread such false worship of ghosts. They only promote the said worship by giving false proof of existence of ghosts
and people are attracted and accept the same as if it is true.
In short I give two instances:
A poor man met me. He was suffering from acute stomach pain. He told me that his relative had taken him so many times to a baba who used to do treatment of ghost. The man was beaten badly there number of times, to accept that there was a ghost in him. The poor man said to me that at
last helplessly, he (poor man) accepted that the ghost is within him, only to save himself from beating. But the fact was that he was having acute stomach pain. When such person accepts existence of ghost under pressure then the people who are present there, accept and start saying that
they are eye-witness when the person accepted the existence of ghost.
This is what the false worshippers of ghosts want. They actually thus achieve the result of beating of the poor people. I suggested him some medicine and yoga asan and he became all right soon.
Second instance is that one of my followers brought a gentleman to me. He told that his friend’s daughter is caught by five witches. He further told the story that when the girl goes to bathroom in the morning, there the five witches slap on her upper arms and the sign of slaps of fingers exist on
arms. The girl faints. So this story also looks a true one. But a learned person of Vedas, who is aware of the fundamental law of nature never accepts such stories at any cost to be a true one.
According to Yajurveda chapter 39, the fundamental law states that when alive soul leaves the human body, the soul remains under control of sutratma Vaayu by the power of God. At this time the soul always remains in sushuptwastha i.e., like in comma till rebirth. So how a soul can be a
ghost? And in a stage of comma (sushuptwastha) how a soul can give harm to anybody?
I thought if I will straightaway refuse the existence of ghost, then the problem will not be solved, because the father of the girl was firm believer of ghost. So I told that this girl must come to me along with her parents daily at least for 10-15days then she will be okay.
When first day the girl came to me, I asked her to tell all about the witches/ghosts etc. She repeated the story and told that her parents had spent lot of money to cure her. Her parents used to take her to such persons who dealt with such cases of ghosts. The persons used to ask her parents to offer wine, chicken etc., which her parents provided. She used to sit before them continuously for full night also. She was beaten by them with iron chains a number of times.
The second day I started giving her preach of Vedas. After one week, with the result of preach of Vedas, I was able to make her understand that there is no existence of ghost on the earth and she agreed.
Based on fundamental law of God I already knew that there is no ghost on the earth and the girl is telling all lies. Then in a friendly and pleasant atmosphere I told her that O daughter! When you have understood the fact of non-existence of ghosts then tell me truly about the story of witches and the signs of slaps with five fingers on the upper arms and what about fainting. I myself made a promise to her that I shall never tell her statement to anybody. Then she told that she is a student of class 9th and she never wants to go to school. But forcefully her parents used to send her to school then she thought to play such game.
When she was about to go to school in the morning she used to enter the bathroom and used to beat herself on both the upper arms leaving the signs of fingers thereon. She used to do the acting of fainting and afterwards she used to tell her parents that in the bathroom she saw five witches who beat her. With the result of such drama she used to enjoy the remaining day as holiday.
Then I told her that if she does not want to go to school, whatever may be the reason, I will make her parents agree, but she should stop doing such acting. And I will not tell anything to anybody. She agreed.
Next day I called her parents without girl and told them that I have cured their daughter. Now the witches will not come again but in this process they should stop their daughter from going to school. I asked them to arrange her education privately. Now she is married having sons and
After a lapse of six years I told the above true story in one of my regular preach where my follower who brought the case to me, was sitting in the public. Now he is a retired Govt., servant from a higher gazetted post. He was very much surprised after listening the fact.
So we must follow the fundamental law of nature only then there will be no problem to understand the truth
