Anupam: गुरुजी सादर प्रणाम।गुरुजी आपसे प्राप्त ज्ञान को मैने अपने विद्यालय मे छात्र छात्राओं को देना प्रारम्भ किया है गुरुजी ऐसा करना गलत तो नही होगा क्योंकि अभी आपको सुनकर ओर आपकी पुस्तके ओर लेख पढ़कर जो ज्ञान हुआ है वही मेरे ज्ञान का आधार है पर हां अज्ञानता का अंधेरा काफी छट गया है।गुरुजी इन दिनों कई आर्यसमाज धर्म को मानने वालों से मिलना हुआ उन्हें तो वह ज्ञान था ही नही जो आपने हमे दिया है ।गुरुजी मुझे किसी ने बताया कि वैदिक गुरुकुलों मे अवकाश इतवार को न होकर पढ़वा व दौज को होता था क्या यह सही है।
Swami Ram Swarup: Ashirwad beti. Nahin beti, vedic gyan phailanaa galat nahi hai parantu jahaan desh mein adhiktar ved-virodhi mat-mataantar hain wahaan seedha-seedha ved ka gyan dena kathin hai. Isliye yeh gyan is tarah do ki na to kisi ka dil dukhe aur na koi objection kare. Sabkee bhaavnaon kee kadra karein. Vastutaha gurukulon mein avkaash ravivaron ko hee hota hai. Parantu avkaash kaal mein bhi samasta gurukul adhik se adhik parishram karne mein hee samay guzaartey hain.
Dwivendra: Namaste guruji , 1)is the story of durga , Kali , ganpati ,Shiva false ?
2) Did the Shiva has son name ganpati ?
3) Who wrote puranas? Why it is not accepted.
4) Are the present Vedas adulterated ? Thank you guruji
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste.
1.) To achieve truth, self proof i.e., proof of ved mantras is essential. (Kapil Muni’s sankhya Shastra sutra 5/51 refers). Therefore, when the matter of worship of Durga, Kali, ganpati etc., is not mentioned in Vedas. So, being unauthentic, learned of Vedas do not accept it.
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.
2.|) According to purranns, which have been written by man, the name Ganpati exists but as far as eternal knowledge, vedas which emanate directly from God and not from any man, Rishi-Muni etc., the matter of Shivji, ganpati etc., do not exist.
3.) As mentioned above, about sutra of Kapil Muni, similarly, all the ancient and present Rishi-Munis who realised God after studying vedas and doing hard practice of Ashtang Yog philosophy, have stated that to achieve truth, the views of any book or person must tally with ved mantras i.e., evidence of ved mantras is required. Because the matter of puranns does not tally with Vedas, so the learned leave it being unauthentic.
4.) No, in present vedas, there is no adulteration.
