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.


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.

The Gayatri mantra is as follows —

Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on
Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.

Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three
names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which
Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar,
Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigveda mantra 1/164/46 says
God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only
being explained.

VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu ‘Rajrideeptau’ i.e., manifest. Therefore
Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus
Viraat is the name of God. Rigveda mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter
makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti.
Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the
visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form.
Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed
and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible
but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction
is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.

AGNI = From dhatu, “ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO” the word “AGNI is made. Its
meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. “SARVAJAYEN” i.e., Omniscient. That is,
knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be
known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.

VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, “VISHPRAVESHANE”. Its meaning is He
in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being
omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.

HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., ” JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM”. Its meaning is, who is the base
of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas.
VAYU = from dhatu, “VA GATIGANDHANYOHO”, vayu word is made. Its meaning is
He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name
of God is Vayu.

TEJ = from dhatu, “TIJA NISHANE”, the word Tej is made meaning He who is self
made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take
light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken,
unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun,
moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.

ISHWAR = from dhatu, “ISH ASHWERIYE”, the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is
whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune
and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to
mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas
God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.

ADITYA = from dhatu, “DO AVAKHANDANE”, Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the
one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God’s name
is Aditya.

PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, “JYEN AVABODHANE”, Prajayen word is made
meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who
knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So
God’s name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion
can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.

BHUHU = “BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA” i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe,
is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.

BHUVAHA= “BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA” i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow,
and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the
name of God is Bhuvaha.

SWAHA = i.e., “SWAHA ITI VYANAHE” who is omnipresent in the universe and is
holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.

SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.

DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.
VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme
and acceptable for worship.
BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable
English word of Sanskrit word, “SHUDH SWARUPAM” the word entity has been used.)
TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.
DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because
YAHA = the God
NAHA = our,
DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)
PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfill the mind with wisdom)

“We meditate the God who is the base of lives’ of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration”.

Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things —-
Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.

Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.

Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.

I’ve also written a book named Yajyen Karma Sarvashreshtha Ishwar Pooja which contains all the mantras along with description and method of doing hawan, there is ACD also regarding this process of doing hawan . Both can be sent to you, if you desire, on receipt of your postal address, price is Rs. 65/- and Rs. 40 /- respectively excluding postal charges.

B V: Respected Swami Ram Swarup Ji, I am a resident of Chennai (Madras) and an Advocate in the Madras High Court. I came to know about Ved Mandi Ashram through the Book Exhibition held at Chennai during the first two weeks of January 2012. I got the telephone nos.of Bangalore and Delhi. I saw from the list of your Publications, the English Books — Vedas a Divine Light and the C.Ds. of your Ashram. I spoke to Mrs.Anupama of your Bangalore Branch and I got all the books and C.Ds. available with her. She said she will send the Vedas Divine Light part 5 and the C.Ds. shortly. I am having some health problems. In my conversation with Mrs. Anupama yesterday, she informed about the Annual Yagna being conducted in your Ashram from April to June 10th, 2012 and she also appraised me about the details of the Yagna. I am interested in coming over to your Ashram, to witness and participate in the Yagna from the last week of May 2012 till ‘Purnahuti’. Can I come over to your Ashram and participate in the Annual Yagna this year? I await to hear from you. With respects, Yours sincerely, B. V.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessing to you. I appreciate your hard work of taking education and becoming advocate,Mmadras high court. Rigveda tells that a girl or a lady and men of society should be learned to give justice to the public. Yes, you are welcome to participate in this annual yajyen as stated by you. During that time, I’ll also try to teach you about yoga philosophy and spiritualism which may be beneficial even in your physical problem.

Ganesh: Pranam
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.

Tithi: What is family relation between Dashrath & Dashanan?
Swami Ram Swarup: There was no family relation between King Dashrath and Dashanan (Ravanna)

A: Pujya Guru Maharajji aapke charno mei mera karodo baar Dandwath pranaam!
Aapke ke apaar kripa se hum sab hamesha theek rehte hai. My husband was saved from a potentially troublesome situation with your blessings. I want to ask you few questions about my daughter:
1) Usko kitne ghanto ki neend sona hai raat mei? Guruji din mei toh woh nahi soti, agar woh tired hai jo ke woh bahut jaldi hojaati hai toh kya woh so sakti hai aur agar so sakti hai toh kitni dher tak?
2) She bahut jyaada tired hoti hai aur hamesha uske shoulders, hands and legs mei hamesha pain rehta hai. 2 months pehle Doctor ne VITAMIN D ka test karvyaa jiska result tha ke VITAMIN D bahut insufficient hai. Doctor ne kaha issi wajah se dard hai usse aur bola ke dhoop mei roz subaah aur shaam bethe ek ghanta. Toh GURUJI mujhe ab usko kaisi diet deni chahiye aur diet ke alavaa aur kya karna chahiye? Sirf 3 meals ek din mei dena chahiye? ya phir beech mei bhi khilaana chahiye? Aapke kripa se she is active. Jitna mei ne suna hai aap se pravachan mei baccho keliye who sab karne ki kosish jaari rehti hai. Uska stamina bhi kam hai GURUji and woh tez bhaag bhi nahi paati baaki baacho ke muqaable. Mujhe kya karna chahiye taaki mei usko physically strong banaau? Agar likhaawat koi galti huyi hai toh mujhe kripa karke shramaa kar dijiye GURUDEV. Aapke charno mei DANDWATH pranaam. Aapki sishya.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to you all, my daughter. The event that has occurred with your husband is only due to his and your faith in your acharya and Vedas. I bless you all for a long, happy life, my daughter.
(1) Your daughter should take sound sleep of 6-7 hours daily. If she is tired in daytime then she should take rest in daytime also for 20-30 minutes . But you should always take care about her balanced diet, daily.
(2) Dhoop to Vit D ke liye best hai. iske ilawa har two hours ke baad usko kuch-kuch khane ko dein jaise sprouted chane, paneer, curd, milk products etc. Doctor kee bhee medicine lein.

Ek baat aur hai kee din mein kam se kame k baar uskee sarson ke tel se halki massage sar se lagaakar peir ke souls tak kee arthat sare shareer kee malish zaroor karein.

Again, my blessing to you all.
