N.S.Venkateshwaran: Swamiji. Namaskar. Would kindly refer me to some good teacher in Delhi who can teach vedic chanting (Shukla Yajurved) correctly with all the swaras etc??
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaskarji. You may contact any local Arya Samaj madir where you will sure find a purohit who can teach you very well, please.
Sangeeta: Sadar Pranam Swamiji. I have a question about chakras in our body. Each chakra has a beej mantra and number of petals with sanskrit letter/akshara in each petal. I want to know what is the significance of each letter. What it means. What chakra relates to skin or which one to meditate to cure skin disease. Dhanayawaad Swamiji
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter.
As per Atharvaveda mantra, there are eight chakras and nine dwaras in human body. In this connection, I paste my article below:-
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).
Atharvaveda mantra 10/8/43 tells about nine dwar but by the present sant mat, 10th dwar is also told which is between two eyebrows(Agyachakra).
Chakra does not cure skin disease. One should take medicine and do daily morning walk, light exercise, asan, prannayam to take care of whole body. In our life the base to live long is to maintain celibacy (brahamcharya) and perform daily yajyen/hawan with ved mantras. In this connection, I would advise you to read my book ”Brahamcharya – Dukh Nivarak Divya Manni” if possible.
