Deepak: Dear Swamyji, Can you please inform us the significance of Beej Sounds and benefit of chanting them. I have also heard about Kundalini and Chakras within the Body. What do our Vedas say about them? Looking forward to your response. Kind Regards, Deepak
Swami Ram Swarup: Beej sound do not exist in Vedas and other ancient holy granths. In this regard, I paste my articles as under-
Names of Chakras in human body
Muladhar chakra, swadhishthan chakra, manipurak chakra, anahat chakra, kanth chakra, lalna chakra, agya chakra, sastrar chakra. Hard study of Vedas, daily havan with Ved mantra, regular contact with learned acharya, and hard/daily practice of Ashtang yoga philosophy is essential to activate the charka. Yet the mercy of Almighty God is too essential in addition. (Atharvaveda mantra 10/2/31 also refers).
Mantras to awaken kundalani
Mere study of Vedas and other holy Granths does not correct the purpose until we put into practice the preach given therein, in daily life. And realization is only possible after Tapsya like Yajyen, daily worship, brahamcharya and daily hard yoga practice etc., according to four Vedas and Patanjal Yog Darshan. Based on my personal experience, it is not an easy task to awaken the kundalni. I can only tell here that kundalni is a part of body and it reaches at murdha to open the path of brahmrandra, where a yogi realizes God.
Murdha is a point at forehead, between two eyebrows, where ida and pingla nadi meet. Kundalni is awakened after long Ashtang yoga practice. Some say that it is a matter of three months. See that God is called Atithi in Vedas. Atithi means He who has no date of His visit i.e., you can not fix date for appointment. If we say for three months or so, it means we have ordered God to be present before us within three months where as Atharvaveda mantra 4/30/3 states that after seeing the good quality and Tapsya etc., of an aspirant God Himself makes the aspirant able to realize Him at any date which is fixed by God and not by man. Hence time bound Kundalni Jagran is not possible as no one can give order to God.
Geeta book says, “BAHUNAAM JANAMNA ANTE” means after so many births aspirants realizes God. So yoga should be learnt and practised faithfully. It is up to God and Yogeshwar Acharya when kundalini is awakened because awakened means realization of God. So one must listen to Vedas, must do the pious deeds according to Vedas, must do daily hawan, Yajyen, must recite holy name of God daily and must do hard practice of Ashtang Yoga under guidance of learned Acharya so that his kundalini gets awakened.
PM: Swamiji namaskar. What is Vedic mathematics? Does it have origins in Atharvaveda?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskarji, Vedic mathematics is mentioned in all four Vedas. The
present maths, algebra, statistics, trigonometry etc., also exist in Vedas. A detailed account about science and maths in Vedas is being given in my book- Vedas- A Divine light- Part V which shall enhance your knowledge to a great extent.
