Poonam: DANDOOT VANDANA TO MY RISHI
BABAJEE IN LECTURE ON SWAR YOGA LOM & VILOM ARE MENTIONED FURTHER IT IS ADDED ANDAR SE “H’ BAHA SE “S” TOGETHER MAKES “HANS”
FURTHER SAID “SUSHMANA IS SHIVA AND SHIVA IS HANS” PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS FURTHER MORE IF I DESERVE IT.
MY NEXT QUESTION IS FROM LECTURE3 WHERE IT IS MENTIONED THAT ONE WHOSE CHITTA IS NOT UNITED WITH YOGA EDUCATION,HE DOES NOT GET SIMILARITY IN INTELLECT ie. SIMILARITY IN MIND IN DEALING WITH HUMAN BEINGS AS A RESULT HE CAN’T BE AN IMPARTIAL PERSON.
PLEASE CLARIFY “SIMILARITY IN MIND”HERE.
Swami Ram Swarup: As regards “HANS” an aspirant may continue practice as follows-
When we breathe inside(inhale) then we must recite “SA” in our mind & not by tongue.And when we breathe outside we must recite the word “HA” .Actually this is only practised in presence of spiritual master.It is better if you remember “O” in mind while breathing inside &”M” while breathing outside.This is the name of Holy God.It is remembered early in the morning & secondly before going to the bed in the night.From 15 minutes to hour or so on as is suitable .Secondly in Lom &Vilom one should learn Pranayaam properly from a spiritual master.In this condition one hole of nostril is kept closed & from other the outer air is taken inside & vice versa etc.It requires presence of spiritual master.
It is mentioned in four Vedas that whose Chitta (Mind) is not capable to learn Yoga or practise Yoga then he is not able to keep similarity in intellect,i.e.,dealing with human beings.”Similarity in mind “means he cannot love humanity and cannot promote even brotherhood at national or international level because Vedas says that only Yoga Practice controls the ill. It is also mentioned in Upnishad that when man/woman will try to realise God through his organs then is failed and when he will try to a virtue of controlling the breathing then he will be able to overcome the breathing then he will be able to overcome the Chitta’s Vritti and will realise God .Please see heading “SEE MAHABHARTA: FOR DESCRIPTION ABOUT YOGA
Where it is mentioned in Mahabharta in in Shanti Parva Chapter 57 Shalok 8 that whose Chitta is not united with Yoga education he does not get Similarity in Intellect.Here Similarity in Mind or Intellect means he will favour the person whereas there must be no difference between poor,rich and even in birds and animals etc.,while dealing with humanity.
Question: What is Yoga?
Swami Ram Swarup: It is a learning
which enlighten us of creation and the creator himself. Why should
we not devote some time to learn Yoga. Let us now go in depth and
see what yoga actually is: The Patnjali Yoga Darshan says :
CHITTA VRITTI NIRODHAH”
Meaning : Yogah=Yoga
chitta = Combination of intellect,Egotism and Mana, i.e. faculty
which receives knowledge from five senses and passes the same to
intellect. Vriti = effect of Various forms, Nirodhah = stoppage.
In whole of 195
Sutras of Yoga Darshahana “Chitta ” has been used for a
combination of intellect ( Budhi ), Ahankar (Ego) and Mana (Mind)
Total stoppage of various forms of ‘Chitta’ is called Yoga
.(we can also say stoppage of total activity of Chittah.
Study of word Chittah Vriti and Nirodhah etc will be defined
and clarified in respective lessons.
Question: What is Swar Yoga?
Swami Ram Swarup: It is a well known fact on the Earth that the most ancient holy Books viz., four Vedas/six Shashtras are quoted as proof by the wisers .So in Vedas there is no Swar Yoga.But nin Vedas there is a description of surya Naadi(vein) a nd Chander Naadi(vein).For example, Atharva Veda Mantra 2/15/3 states that the left hole of nostril is called Chander Swar and right is Surya Swar (warm).Surya (Sun) is an indicator of fire/hotness whereas Chander (moon) is an indicator of Som matter Cold/Peace.
The breathe (Pran & Apan) is moving through both holes of the nostril in two main veins , Ida vein and Pingla
vein. Left nostril contains Ida vein and right contains Pingla vein. Between both eyebrows where these two veins(Naadi) are connected that point is called Murdha from where third Naadi(vein) Shushumna starts.Shushumna is Shiva and Shiva is
Hans. When we breathe inside then the Swar is Sa and when we breathe outside then the Swar is Ha ,i.e.,Hans.
Gayatri Mantra or Guru Mantra is practised by knowing this Swar
knowledge. Secondly, Lom and Vilom practice of Pranayam is also done.But all this knowledge must be fully taken by a wiser Yogi first.So Swar Yoga can also be considered a part of Ashtang Yoga which is faithful to all .This is a vast knowledge and requires brief description which is not possible
here. It is to be learnt from an experienced Yogi. However, if required this knowledge containing 10 lectures can be delivered on this subject of Swar Yoga. Please confirm. Any question on Yoga or spiritualism by readers or anybody else is highly appreciated and I shall feel personal pleasure to reply.
