Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you.

Mann isliye nahin dikhta kyunki weh Prakriti se bana sukshma tatva hai. I also paste some of my articles –

Our inner system of body is made of mann( mind), buddhi(intellect), chitta ({faculty which receives knowledge from five senses and passes the same intellect is called Chitta and Chitta stores the effect of various karmas to be faced by soul in future at a proper time}) ahankar(feeling of existence) all made from Raj, tamo, sato gunn of Prakriti. So, mann is also a sinner, being made of Prakriti.

Mind i.e., mann collects the data from five senses and sends it to intellect (Buddhi). The buddhi then sends it to soul to decide action etc. So mind and intellect both are necessary to observe each matter of universe, to study, the Vedas, to do worship etc., to realise God.

Hriday is heart where palpitation occurs. Mann is the minutest matter which can’t be seen but whatever thinking is being created, is the job of mann and we can control the bad thinking, thoughts etc. since everybody knows about his/her good or bad thinking. The control is possible only by real worship of God based on Vedas especially practise of yoga philosophy.

Antakaran

Antakaran-mann (mind), buddhi (intellect) Chitta Vritti {(faculty which receives knowledge from five senses and passes the same intellect is called Chitta and Chitta stores the effect of various karmas to be faced by soul in future at a proper time), Ahankar( feeling of one’s own existence). So by studying Vedas, performing Yajyen, name jaap of God and Ashtang Yoga practice, the Antakaran is purified.

Harsha: I received the email from Vedmandir saying that they have sent me the copy of the book. But I did not pay for it, please let me know the method of payment for the same.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. Thanks to purchase the books, please. The payment may be deposited in the account of Ved Mandir Prakashan.
V: I am practicing brahmacharya since 8 years seriously, but unable to control bad dreams. Please help me. Thank you all.
Swami Ramswarup: I appreciate that you are maintaining Brahmcharya. Now, please try to do havan daily. I also paste the procedure to do havan-

How to do havan

Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be performed in sunlight then it is more beneficial. 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 kept on mat.

Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. 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.

Now, put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gaaytri 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 fingers 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 Yajyen. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.

The daily havan will sure help you to minimize and one day to destroy occurrence of dreams.
