Vivek: Can old works be continued in pitru paksh like making of houses and other which are coming from before?
Swami Ram Swarup: Yes, please you may go ahead.
Pitr means those who look after us to educate, to nurse, and to protect us etc. So the said dignitaries are mother, father, grandfather, elders, acharya, etc. Hence, the pitr who have gone to heavenly abode, for those no pitr dosh is there.
Vedas are eternal knowledge direct from God wherein such kaal sarp yog, pitr dosh etc., are not mentioned, so you need not to worry. Daily havan even with gayatri mantra, which is a great worship of God will give you benefit. The meaning of kaal is also time. So death comes according to time for which the God has given life to us. This is all based on our previous lives’ pious deeds and sins. So there is no effect of kaal sarp yog, pitr dosh etc., in the life, but effect of deeds (karmas) only. So, one must always do pious deeds to be happy. Present pious deeds can burn our previous deeds also and life’s time can also be extended wide Yajurveda mantra 3/62.
Prahlad: Namaste guruji vedo me 1. cow ko mother kyun kaha gaya hai 2.vedo ko bhi edit kiya gaya hai vedo me bhi kayi mantra milaye gaye hai hame ye kaise pata chalega ki kaunsa mantra galat hai aur kaunsa sahi dhanyawaad guruji to u and almighty god for changing my life.
Swami Ram Swarup: Dear son Prahalad, my blessings to you. Vedon mein Cow ko mother kehne ke bahut se karann hain, jo yahaan lekh lamba honey ke karann nahin likhe ja sakte. Cow ke upar maine Ishwar kripa se ek kitaab likhee hai. Aap apna address bhejein aur detail mein padein.
Ishwar ne khud vedon mein cow ko ‘vishwasyamatraha’ arthath vishwa kee mata kaha hai. Aap kitaab mangwa kar pad lein wahaan aapko is kitaab mein cow ke barey mein bahut ved mantra milengey. Vedon mein aaj tak kisi ne koi bhi mantra mix nahin kiya hai. Yeh jhuthi bhranti phelayee ja rahee hai. Issey door raho. Yeh ved sanskriti ko nasht karne ka jaal phelaya ja raha hai, isliye Ishwar ne khud vedon mein kaha hai ki vedon ko kisi poorna Yogabhyasi vidwan se hi sunna, kisi pakhandi se nahi.
