Questions & Answers: April 2007

Alvin Lal: When Vyas Muni wrote the Vedas on Bhoj Patra for the first time, how did he choose what knowledge from which of the four Vedas Agni, Vayu, Aditya, and Angira goes where? i.e. How did it come to be four books and not five (for example), Rigveda, Samved, Atharvaved, and Yajurved? How was the original knowledge division/ correlation done into four books? How was it categorised, if at all? Meaning from the original 4 Vedas, whose knowledge was transferred by mouth, how was that knowledge divided up into 4 books? Hopefully swamiji you can enlighten me once more..

Questions & Answers: February 2008

Kripa: Why don't we remember incidents of previous births?
Swami Ramswarup: In the present life, even we do not remember about the events of our childhood. We forget so many events which take place some years back. It is difficult to say that what vegetable, dal or fruit, we took in the dinner just 10-15 days ago. So, what to talk about the remembrance of past life? We can only say that it is all under the administration of Almighty God that we forget about previous lives' events. This matter has already been placed on the article entitled After Death.

Questions & Answers: June 2008

Surya P Ianala: Namaskar, Swami Jee! Same thought continues- Prophets, God does not need prophets to preach, so it is very clear now as per Vedas, there is nothing like a follower of GOD in human flesh. You said, If GOD had a desire to preach to people, since he has unlimited power, he can preach his teachings directly to one and everyone, but he does this to only four unsexual rishis, every time the universe is created and destroyed.
