Prerna: Pranaam swamiji ……. parmeshvar ne sansaar ki rachna kaise ki thi? sansaar kaise bana?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. In this connection, I paste one of my articles, please. After studying the article, you may send doubt, if any.
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.
Rigveda 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
L: Respected Swamiji, Charan Sparsh, thanks for replying my question. I am well-qualified but at present I am not having any job. I lost my previous job and I fail in all the interviews. I feel very low and depressed, I even don’t like to study my subject I try hard but not getting success, now I have started feeling as if I am lazy.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. You are always welcome.
A person should never lose patience and must never be demoralized. Otherwise, the world would laugh on him. A deed done by us will never go in vain- either good or bad. It gives result. So, you please always try to do pious deeds and hard working with full concentration and devotion to seek your job. Obstacles may be there and may be due to forgetting holy name of God who destroys the obstacles. So, I would advise you to chant Gayatri mantra both times and do hawan with Gayatri mantra, both times. Sit on asan, with closed eyes, concentrate between the two eyebrows and chant – OM, daily both times. OM should be chanted in heart and not orally. Your hardworking and the said worship would give you fruitful results soon. Otherwise, you will remain tense and would destroy your future and the world would never help you but laugh at you. Please be brave. Stand up and go ahead.
Shashikant: Swamiji, sadar pranaam. Thank you for giving me such a great answer-there is another query of my mind is about arya samaj that, in Aryawarta (India) maximum population are idol worshipper and these activities affecting our nation or society negatively. So, as a Arya Samaji what we have to do – option 1.Doing public debates on idol worship or for evils of society. 2. Taking soft stand and try to compromise all activities which are going in our country/following middle path. So, please guide me what is our social responsibilities for our religion and nation.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. You are most welcome, please. Yes, no doubt our country is indulged in vast illusion due to lack of knowledge of Vedas. That is why, corruption, dishonour of females, blind faith, poverty, pollution, injustice, starvation and out break of diseases exists all over the country. Very few know that its cure lies only in adopting Vedas’ knowledge. So compromise with illusion means we forego the truth and this itself becomes a sin. Vedas’ knowledge is like a sunlight. Sun removes the darkness similarly knowledge of Vedas, which is the light of wisdom removes illusion. So, first of all, we must learn the Vedas deeply to either become like a light of wisdom or like a ray of light of wisdom. Then only the darkness of illusion can be removed from the public. Thereafter, we must try our level best to spread the knowledge of Vedas by organizing Yajyen all over India. When we will try our level best to make people understand about Vedas then people would automatically leave the Idol worship.
In public debate, idol worship must neither be condemned nor accepted but only we’ve to preach what Vedas’ say, knowledge of which will automatically remove the idol worship.
Its stated in Vedas-“krinnvanto Vishwam Aryam” i.e., establish the Vedas’ knowledge in the world to make human-beings, Arya. So, this is our social duty to obey the Vedas to spread its knowledge all over the world, but first in our country.
Lata: Respected Swamiji, Charan Sparsh, Swamiji in your books you always advise womens to be patient if they have some problems and always guide them to be calm and quite and at the same time in one of your response to some male you have written if the wife is not good the male can give divorce to such wife.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Yes, please. Vedas tell if wife is not good then she can be divorced similarly Vedas apply the rule to the man as well that if man is not good then wife can give divorce. Therefore Vedas state that man and woman both must’ve good character. They must be hard working, should know their moral duties towards family and society, maintaining the house and taking care of children etc. I would also advise you to read my book written in English – Vedas A Divine light part III, in which duties of women have been mentioned.
Other wife can be obtained in case first wife is characterless, creates , quarrels, ignores in-laws, does not take care of her husband but another mother-father can not be obtained. I may tell you the fact of Vedas that every happiness, pleasure of the world can only be obtained by serving the parents but not wife. I mean to say, not that wife of the above quoted category. Atharvaveda mantra 1/14/1 states that a wife should remain in her husband’s house like a mountain stands firmly on ground i.e., she should make herself busy in household duties that she has no time to go out of the house baselessly.
