Brijesh: Kya mahilao ko Hanumanji ki pooja karni chahiye?
Swami Ram Swarup: Vedon mein to kewal ek nirakaar, srishti rachyitaa, paalankarta aur sanhaarkarta ek Ishwar kee hee Pooja ka vidhaan hai. Mahabharat kaal ke baad hum manushyon ne Pooja-paath ke anek raaste khud banaa liye the parantu Ishwar ka banaya vedic marg ek hee hai aur weh kabhi nahi badalta. Phir bhi aap Hanumaan jee kee Pooja karna chahte hain to karein. Lekin vedon mein to ek nirakaar Ishwar ke ilawa kisi aur kee Pooja karne ka vidhaan nahi hai. Naari ko Pooja karne ka adikaar hai.
Lakshmipathi: Gurudevo Bhava, Guruji I’m Lakshmipathi and have a question that, shell I perform simple havan at home. I request your good self to mail me the method and proceedure about simple havan. I do sandhyavandanam daily morning only as I am working in private institution. I would like to learn simple havan to perform at home. Please let me know the method. Thanking you, Yours faithfully, Lakshmipathi.
Swami Ram Swarup: Many-2 blessings to you , my son. Yes, you must perform simple havan with ved mantras daily in your home. If you do not know how to perform it then I paste my requisite articles regarding procedure – To perform daily such havan is preached by God Himself in vedas. However, I paste my articles as under-
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.
Again, my blessings to you, my son.
