Ramneet: Namaste swami ji and thanks for the answer. I have a question is it ok to do kapalbhati for 20 minutes a day? Please answer it as soon as possible thanks. And I am sorry to say but just want to make sure that can I trust you that you are swami Ramswaroop because its a matter of health.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. You are welcome, please. With the blessings of Almighty God, the questions received on www.vedmandir.com are always replied by me and you can trust it, please. I always explain the fundamental law of the Vedas that asan, prannayam etc., must first be learnt from an experienced acharya, personally. Then, the same should be practised. Otherwise, it may be harmful. If you have already learnt then I would advise you to do kapalbhati only for 2-3 minutes in family life. A Brahamchari/Yogi may increase time at their own.
Vidya: Namaste , Revered Swamiji, I thank you very much for your Blessings to my family and me.I will cherish this Blessings for ever.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. You are most welcome, my daughter.
Omprakash: Dhanyawad Swamijee. Omprakash
Swami Ram Swarup: You are most welcome, please.
Anonymous: Pranaam Swami Ji, How can one stop the disease known as night fall?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. the patient should also contact a qualified Ayurvedic doctor. Secondly, he should wake up early in the morning at about 4 o’clock and after going for bath, he should chant the holy name of God, sitting on siddhasan or padmasan, with closed eyes, duly concentrating between the two eyebrows. This practice should be repeated also before going to bed at night.
One must always try to stop the entering of bad thoughts but such thoughts should be cut off immediately before entering into mind. Neither should he see obscene photographs nor study obscene material. The following pious deeds should be held in life.
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.
One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.
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 Gaytri 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 AMRTO 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 Gaytri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gaytri 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 —
OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NHA PRACHODYAT
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.
In the above mantra we pray to God but mere prayer does not solve the purpose until we do hard work according to the prayer.
