Siddharth: Can we practise maha bandha with antar kumbhaka (internal breathe retention)?
Can we practise uddiyana bandha with antar kumbhaka (internal breathe retention)?
Swami Ram Swarup: The practice of prannayam and bandh must first be learnt from an acharya, personally. Otherwise, it may be harmful, please. This is also the fundamental law of God in Vedas that such knowledge is gained in person. I’m away and can’t teach you personally, from here. So, you are advised to learn the same from a local acharya.
D S: Thank you swami ji… Please tell me what else i can do other than reciting gayatri mantra to solve all the problems….I have a strong faith in God,so please guide me. You have given a positive motivation to me by replying..thanks a lot swami ji.. your daughter, D.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. You are welcome, please.
Now, I would like to advise you to study other Ved mantras for hawan given in my book “Yajyen Karma Sarvashreshth Ishwar Pooja” (in Hindi). In the book every Ved mantra along with its words and meaning and detailed explanation in Hindi has been mentioned. Secondly, Cd of hawan, reciting all mantras can also be sent from here. The book and CD will be sent on a very low rate. Yet, if you feel problem in sending the money then the book and Cd will be sent free of cost at the receipt of your postal address, if you so desire.
Prashant Kulkarni: Namaste swamiji, I want to know that what is the difference between Devi (Goddes ) and Devss, which are very well known in hindu dharma? Ma shakti and gods?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Actually, in Hindu Sanatan Dharma, as per the Vedas, only a formless, omnipresent , Almighty God is worshippable Who alone creates , nurses and destroys the universe. However, in the absence of knowledge of Vedas, for the last about two thousand five hundred years ago people have made their own path of worshipping Devi and Devtas. So, it is very difficult to say, who is greater from other. However, the greatest Almighty God who creates, nurses and destroys and again creates the universe was, is and will ever remain one and the most supreme.
