Swami Ramswarup: Shraadh ka matter vedon mein nahin hai. I paste my article as under-

SHRADH

At the time of death, the soul comes out of the body and when a person is dead, his body is burnt on pyre. When soul resides in human body, person uses his mouth to eat, ear to listen, eye to see, hand to work, legs to move etc. Now the body has been burnt and the soul remains alone. Alone soul can do nothing but remains in the stage of Sushupt i.e., like in coma. Then after thirteen days, the soul takes rebirth. So how the dead person would eat the food which is made for him during Shradh. So Shradh is not mentioned in Vedas. Vedic meaning of Shradh is to serve the alive parents and elders by providing them with food, bedding and necessary goods etc., faithfully and lovingly.

Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. Sansaar mein kisi bhi padarth kee rachna pranniyon ke kalyan ke liye kee gayi hai. Pathar ke pahaad na hon to baraf na Jamey aur nadiyan na niklein. Phir to manushya pashu-pakshi aadi ka jeena hee mushkil ho jaye. Patharon kee apne aap banee gufaon mein bahut se jantu apna Jeevan nirwah karte hain. Patharon se makaan, dukaan, sadakein aadi bantee hain. Patharon se hee bajari,reta, cement adi banta hai. Yaani Patharon se bahut cheezein bantee hain jo hamare sabke ke laabh ke liye hain. Railgariyon kee patariyon ke beech mein bhi pathar hee daaley jaate hain, ityadi. Parantu Ishwar ne yeh nahin kaha ki pathar se kisi ka sar phod do. Pathar barsa kar insaanon ko maar do ya ghayal kar do, kaala jaadu etc. bhi pathar se nahin banta kyunki kaala jaadu naam kee koi cheez vedon mein nahin hai.
