Whatever, I preach is totally based on eternal knowledge of Vedas and also on Yog shastra, Bhagwad Geeta etc.

So, sure one should do the worship according to the Vedas, shastras etc.

Your views are highly appreciated that you’ve made up your mind to do the worship. You are always welcome here to gain the knowledge to do worship. It is said “shubham sheeghram” i.e., the pious deed should start immediately. Rest lies on your situation/circumstances as to when you may come here. I would also advise you to read my books:-

(i) Yoga- A divine Vedas Philosophy (In English)

(ii) Vedic satsang sangrah part I (in Hindi)

You are also advised to start Gayatri mantra jaap daily both times and do hawan with Gayatri mantra daily both times. The process to do hawan is pasted below:-

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

One of my disciples is coming to me from your city in the next few weeks. The books can be sent through him also if you desire.

I shall be available here too after few weeks and you may stay here in ved mandir for as many day as suit you. Boarding and lodging is free for everyone, here.

Again, my blessings to you for a long, happy life.

Kailash: Pranam acharyaji..can anyone wear janeu…or there is any procesure for wearing janeu?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.

Anyone can wear janyeu after performing a Yajyen with ved mantras under guidance of learned acharya of Vedas because no caste system has been preached by God in Vedas.
