The Ultimate Truth Seeker: Namaste swami ji. Is not maintaining brahmcharya necessary for achieving Nirvikalp Samadhi?
Swami Ram Swarup: Without maintaining Brahmacharya and other vedic fundamentals like listening of Vedas, daily agnihotra with ved mantras, name jaap of God OM daily and hard practice of Ashtang yog under the guidance of learned acharya, nobody can attain any samadhi and no body can even gain knowledge about God, souls and Prakriti etc. so, we all must follow vedic path which was followed by our ancient Rishi-munis, Sri Ram, Sri Krishna Maharaj, other Rajrshis etc.
Rahul: Pranam swami ji earlier also I asked the question and I got the answer now I wanted to know the procedure as I am doing hoong hoong mahakaal prashide prashide hring hring swaha — I started seeing skulls and other things as its bhairav mantra please tell me the exact procedure … Thanks swamiji.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Mantra quoted by you does not exist in Vedas so, I’m sorry to say anything about it.
Harish Choudhary: Guru Ji, Please accept my Parnam, as when ever open www.vedmandir.com i get my answers without asking any question. Again Parnam Guru Ji.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Thank you. You are always welcome here.
Ashok: Swami ji…. from last two months I am chating gayatri mantra and feeling some pressure in the mid of both eye bros and also I felt few things took place during this period which has increased my faith in the gayatri mantra. Since I have no guru to guide me, can you please guide my way ahead? How many malas in a day? Right now I am doing 5 in the morning and 4/5 in the evening?
Swami Ram Swarup: It should be assured that Gayatri mantra should be chanted with its meaning of every word. I also paste my article in this regard as under-
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.
Gayatri mantra should be chanted, as advised above. Actually, no mala is required for it. It will be better if proper time is set up to recite Gayatri mantra i.e., ten minutes or fifteen minutes or half an hour daily, as time suits, instead of taking mala. Yet, if you need it, you may go ahead. I will also advice you to make contact with any local Arya Samaj Mandir to gain the knowledge to chant gayatri mantra properly. Gayatri mantra gives extra-ordinary benefit to worship God if a devotee performs daily agnihotra from it, both times.
