Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, beti. Beti, Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2,3 mein kaha ki

Idea of Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2, 3, 4

Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2, 3 we’ve been blessed with the human body to face the result of our previous lives’ deeds – good and bad, in the shape of happiness and sorrows. When we’ve to face bad deeds then naturally everybody says that it is our bad luck but mostly people do not think that God has done justice and the sorrows/problems given by God is the result of our said deeds. Further, the ved mantra 4 state that if a person makes contact with learned acharya of Vedas and yoga philosophy and becomes able to gain knowledge of Vedas and obey preach of Vedas then the effect of bad deeds is automatically destroyed and future becomes bright. Secondly, God helps those who help themselves. So, hardworking, devotion and dedication also makes future bright.

Rigved 10/135/1, 2, 3, 4 ka yahi bhaav hai ki manushya ka yeh janam pichhley janam ke kiye punnya paap karmon ka phal bhogne ke liye mila hai. To jitni deir punnya karma ka phal mahina, do mahina, saal ,do saal rahega, utnee deir tak to weh manushya, is janam mein kiye paap karmon ko karta hua bhi pichhley janam ka punnya phal sukh ke roop mein hee bhogega . Jab punnya phal ka time samapt ho jayega tab weh manushya paap karma ka phal dukh ke roop mein bhogega. Yeh ved mantra, yeh bhi kehta hai ki jo is janam mein hum paap karte hain uska phal dukh ke roop mein agley janamon mein bhoga jaata hai. Isiliye log zydatar yahi sochtey hain ki kitne hee insaan paap karma karte hain lekin sukhi dikhayee deite hain. Unhein yeh maaloom nahi ki weh pichhley janam ke kiye karmon ka sukh bhog rahe hain. Iska example Ravanna bhi hai ki jab tak uska paap ka ghada nahin bhara, usnein sukh bhoga aur jaise hee paap karne ka time khatam ho gaya uskee sone ki Lanka ujad gayee.

Doosree baat yeh hai ki Ishwar bhakti ke bina koi bhi sukh prapt nahi kar sakta. isliye jo insaan aaj pichhley janamon ke punnya phal se dhan –parivar aadi ka sukh bhog rahey hain, weh bhi yadi Ishwar ki ved anusar bhakti nahi karte to dikheinge to weh sukhi par mansik dukh unhein andar hee andar sataata hee rehta hai. Isliye ved kehte hain ki manushya ka yeh janam pakar vedon ke anusar Ishwar bhakti karte hue pichhle janamon ke dukh dene wale karmon ko nasht kiya ja sakta hai aur is prakar ek lambi sukhmayee aayu prapt kee ja saktee hai.

Upar likhey se aap swayum samajh saktee ho ki jo bhi is janam mein kashta aatey hain woh pichchley janam ka karmon ka phal hai. Ismein hum Bhagwan ko dosh kabhi nahin lagaa sakte. Usnein to jo karma hamne kiye uska phal hee dena hota hai. Han! Jaise upar chaar mantron mein kaha ki jo ved ke gyata vidwanon kee sharann mein aakar kewal ved marg par chalta hai, anya marg chchod deta hai, tub pichchley karmon ka prabhaav to nashta kiya jaa sakta hai.

Aap kahin local Arya Samaj mandir mein jaana prarambh karein aur kisi achchey vedon ke gyata acharya se Vedic shiksha lena prarambh karein. Ishwar aap par kripa kareingey. Meantime, agar kar sakte ho to yeh karein-

Shubh Karma

Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yog, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.

One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.



GAYATRI MANTRA

The Gayatri mantra is as follows ---

OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA
DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT

Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.

Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar, Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigved mantra 1/164/46 says God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained. VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu 'Rajrideeptau' i.e., manifest. Therefore Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus Viraat is the name of God. Rigved mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti. Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form.

Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.

AGNI = From dhatu, "ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO" the word "AGNI is made. Its meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. "SARVAJAYEN" i.e., Omniscient. That is, knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.

VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, "VISHPRAVESHANE". Its meaning is He in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.

HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., " JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM". Its meaning is, who is the base of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas. VAYU = from dhatu, "VA GATIGANDHANYOHO", vayu word is made. Its meaning is He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name of God is Vayu.

TEJ = from dhatu, "TIJA NISHANE", the word Tej is made meaning He who is self made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken, unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun, moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.

ISHWAR = from dhatu, "ISH ASHWERIYE", the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.

ADITYA = from dhatu, "DO AVAKHANDANE", Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God's name is Aditya.

PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, "JYEN AVABODHANE", Prajayen word is made meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So God's name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.

BHUHU = "BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA" i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe, is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.

BHUVAHA= "BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA" i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow, and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the name of God is Bhuvaha.

SWAHA = i.e., "SWAHA ITI VYANAHE" who is omnipresent in the universe and is holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.

SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.

DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.

VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme and acceptable for worship.

BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable English word of Sanskrit word, "SHUDH SWARUPAM" the word entity has been used.)

TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.

DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because

YAHA = the God

NAHA = our,

DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)

PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)

MEANING

"We meditate the God who is the base of lives' of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration".

Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things ----

Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.

Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.

Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.

HOW TO DO HAVAN

Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.

Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.

Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.

Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand's finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajna. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.

In the end of hawan, please pray to God to fulfill your desires. I hope God will sure listen to you.

PROCEDURE OF CHANTING

Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.

After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.

Jeevan mein niraash nahin hona chahiye. Ishwar ne vedon mein pratyek niraash nar-naari ko poorna ashavaan hone ka updesh kiya hai parantu aaj durbhagya yahi hai ki manushya vedon ko bhool gaya hai isliye dukhon mein doob gaya hai.

Yash: Namastey guru ji me ye janna chata hu ki hamare granth ke hisab se manushya ka dincharya kesa honna chahiye jese ki kab sona chahiye kab jagna chahiye pure din me kon kon se niyam ka palan karna chahiye me apna din charya puri tarah se badlna chata hu kripya karke mujhe ye bataye ki ye niyam kanun dincharya ka ullekh mujhe kis kitab me milega takki me apne jivan ko us me dhal saku
Swami Ramswarup: Namasteji. Manuhsya ka shareer paakar manushya ko ved gyata vidwanon ka sang karna chahiye. Yeh vidwan hee vedon ka updesh dete huye kehte hain ki manushya shareer dharann karke sabko sabse pehle Parmeshwar par aur ussey utpann Charon vedon ke gyan par shat-pratishat Shraddha-aastha lanee chahiye. Iske bina koi bhi shiksha poorna nahin hotee. Yeh bharat bhoomi Rishiyon kee bhumi hai, yahaan anek Rishi-muni aur Rajrishiyon mein Harishchandra Raja, Aj Raja, Dashrath Raja, Sri Ram Raja evum Pandav jaise anek Rajaon ne ved vidya par acharann karke aur janta se karaakar sampoornna prithvi ko dhan- dhaanya se paripoorna karke tatha praja ka apne beta-beti kee tarah palaan karke sukh diya tha jo ab ved vidya nahi hone ke karann sukh nahin hai. Ab main aapko yeh Vedic updesh deta hoon ki manushya ko Charon pehar arthat prataha chaar baje uth jaana chahiye. Shauch aadi se nivrit hokar kisi ved ke vidwan se seekha hua dhyan yog aur Ishwar ke naam ka simran aur yogabhyaas karna chahiye, iske pashchaat jub surya kee kiran prithvi ko chchuye to Sandhya mantron se Ishwar kee upasana, stuti evum prarthna karke agnihotra karna chahiye. Iske pashchaat jo vidyaarthi hai woh apne school, college etc., mein jaye aur jo grihasth mein rehte hain unko mehnut kee kamayi karne ke liye jaana chahiye aur din mein bhi Ishwar kee yaad bhoolnee nahin chahiye. Jub grihasthwaasi sham ko ghar pahunche to mooh haath dhokar upar kahee upasana repeat karnee chahiye. Yeh satya hai ki isko birla hee koi kar paata hai. Issee se sukh-smridhi prapt hotee hai. Main aapko yeh bhi advise karoonga ki aap kisi local vidwan se ya Arya samaj mein jaakar ved sunein kyunki main bahut door hoon aur aapkop ved nahin suna sakta. Aap ek pustak jiska naam Brahmacharya- dukh nivarak divya manni (in hindi) hai iska awashya adhyan karein. Agar aapkee ichcha ho to apna postal address bhej dein. Kitaab bhej dee jayegee. Price of the book is Rs.100/-, excluding postal charges. Yeh pustak bhi aapko aahaar-vihaar, dincharya, Brahmacharya ke aur bhi anya gyaan degi.
