Purify food through Balivaishwa and Pranagnihotra yagna

Balivaishwa Yagna

Balivaiswa has been considered important ever since the ancient days when the procedures of yagna came into being. Param pujya Gurudev Pt. ShriRam Sharma Acharya propagated Balivaiswa along with yagna. This is a simple process but very effective.

The five ahutis in Balivaiswa have been described as Panchamahayagna by Param Pujya Gurudev. One should understand why the prefix of ‘Maha’ has been given by Gurudev for such a simple process. Offering ahutis to Brahma, Devata and Rishi mentioned in Pachamaha yagnas is not to appease them by offering food. Instead, we should strive to imbibe the noble qualities that are symbolized by these Divine beings. We should invest our time and resources in developing the divine qualities.
1.    Brahma Yagna : Inspires us towards Brahma Jnana or Atma Jnana. It symbolizes the give-take processes between the Jeevatma (Individual) and Paramatma (Almighty)      .

2.    Deva Yagna: The objective of Deva yagna is to accelerate the process of evolving from animal instincts towards human beings. One should mould their Guna (characteristics)-karma (actions)-swabhava (inherent nature) according to Divine principles. Purity and generosity should be imbibed.

3.    Rishi Yagna: The main principle behind Rishi yagna is to uplift the downtrodden. This involves the penance to enhance nobility and good-naturedness. One should derive inspiration from the ancient rishis and sages and imbibe their noble ideals.      

4.    Nara Yagna: The meaning of Nara yagna is to create an atmosphere in the society which reflects the glory of human nature. One should maintain the dignity of human life and abide by the rules set for a man’s behavior. He should strive to evolve from human to Divine state (Nara to narayana). He should live like a global citizen and develop an all-encompassing nature towards other beings.

5.    Bhoota Yagna: The emotion behind Bhoota yagna is to extend one’s sympathy and feelings towards other lower beings as well. One should strive for even maintaining the flora and fauna inhabiting this planet. 

The first morsel of cooked food should be offered to fire along with jaggery and ghee with the following mantras being chanted

Om bhur bhuvah swah tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat | swaha idam brahmane idam na mama||

Om bhur bhuvah swah tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat | swaha idam devebhyah idam na mama||

Om bhur bhuvah swah tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat | swaha idam rishibhyah idam na mama||

Om bhur bhuvah swah tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat | swaha idam narebhyah idam na mama||

Om bhur bhuvah swah tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat | swaha idam bhutebhyah idam na mama||

Pranagnihotra Yagna

Vedic scriptures describe our body to comprise of five tatvas, namely prithvi, jala, agni, vayu and akasha (Earth, water, fire, air and space). Hence body is also known by the name Panchabhautik sharer. The air that we breathe (pranayama with 7 vyahrutis) in conjunction with the food that is partaken with the mantra of swaha transforms into divine energy and creates favorable conditions for upasana, sadhana and aradhana of the sadhaks. When we eat food with this awareness and with this procedure, it becomes yagna. Mudras or the positions of fingers play an important role when we eat food in this manner. When we eat food with the associated mudras, the food is accepted by the respective divine energies who will in return bestow us with complete health.

1st step – Bhushuddhi : cleanse the area where you plan to eat food by sprinkling water along with chanting of Gayatri mantra.

2nd step – Dehashuddi: Clean your hands and legs before you eat. Perform moolabandha 7 times before commencing eating. This will help easy digestion of food.

1. Prana Ahuti

Mudra – Join the thumb, index and middle fingers

Take few grains of rice with ghee with your hand in the above mudra.

Meditate on: Color – Golden color; Rishi- Kshudagni; Devata – Sun; Chandas – Gayatri

Chant ‘Om pranaya swaha’ and put the rice in your mouth (preferably without touching the lips. Utter ‘idam aadi devaya na mama’. Lord savita accepts this ahuti and bestows us varchas. Our body will get tuned for doing Gayatri mantra japa. Good appetite is created. Anahata (Heart) chakra is activated.

2.     Apana Ahuti

Mudra – Join the thumb, middle and ring fingers

Take few grains of rice with ghee with your hand in the above mudra.

Meditate on: Color – milky white; Rishi- Shraddhagni; Devata – Soma; Chandas – Ushnik

Chant ‘Om apanaya swaha’ and put the rice in your mouth (preferably without touching the lips. Utter ‘idam somaya na mama’. Lord Soma or Moon accepts this ahuti. When pranashakti merges with Moon, we should feel that it is getting transformed into peace and health. Mooladhara (Base) chakra is activated.

3. Vyana Ahuti

Mudra – Join the thumb, ring and little fingers

Take few grains of rice with ghee with your hand in the above mudra.

Meditate on: Color – Lotus color; Rishi- Hutashanagni; Devata – agni; Chandas – Anushtup

Chant ‘Om vyanaya swaha’ and put the rice in your mouth (preferably without touching the lips. Utter ‘idam agnaye na mama’. The food received in Vyana mudra influences the Swadhistana chakra. The energy flows from navel to the toe and protects us from any diseases related to these body parts.

4. Udana Ahuti

Mudra – Join the thumb, little and index fingers

Take few grains of rice with ghee with your hand in the above mudra.

Meditate on: Color – Arudra; Rishi- Agni; Devata – Vayu; Chandas – Brihati

Chant ‘Om udanaya swaha’ and put the rice in your mouth (preferably without touching the lips. Utter ‘idam vayuve na mama’. This mudra affects vishuddhi chakra. The food along with mantra shakti works from throat to head upwards and gives good voice.

5.  Samana Ahuti

Mudra – Join the tips of all the five fingers

Take few grains of rice with ghee with your hand in the above mudra.

Meditate on: Color – Red; Rishi- Agni; Devata – Parjanya; Chandas – Pankti

Chant ‘Om samanaya swaha’ and put the rice in your mouth (preferably without touching the lips. Utter ‘idam parjanyaya na mama’. This ahuti activates the manipuraka chakra because of which the entire region from the heart to navel remains healthy. This also ensures good breathing process.

By following the rules given above and eating food as per the procedure given ensures that you enjoy a healthy and peaceful life. This procedure targeted for your spiritual progress also transforms you into Divine Man. This is what has been described as the true Brahmanism by Param Pujya Gurudev.

Why should we live in the present?

Q&A with Mohanji

pocket_watch

Why do we think about the Past, Concerns about the future and forget to live in the Present ?
Thinking about the Past is not wrong since we have examples of how past information avoided world war 3. Concerns about the future is also not a sin because that may have an element of future goodness in that. But why and how we can live in the PRESENT? Every moment we live are connected by a past (GOOD OR BAD) which infact is not there, and a future which again we are not sure about. So what is PRESENT? Does it not have its own identity?

Thinking about the past is the nature of the conscious mind. It keeps oscillating between past and the future, refusing to stay in the present. This can be minimized only through awareness or witness consciousness. Being a witness to your own thought process will help in keeping the mind in the present. The usual reason for energy loss and resulting tiredness is the same thing. Mind uses much more energy than the body uses. It tires the man.

There is no absolute right or wrong. Mind constantly takes references from the past to handle the present. For example, a boy who slipped and fell in the rain, could always have that memory and related fear. Sometimes,a news paper report about an air crash could give an impact to the reader which could develop into the fear of flying. So, impressions that we store into our sub-conscious mind will cause us such realties. Taking reference from the past is being done, whether we like it or not. The only problem is carrying the garbage from the past and refusing to throw them away. Garbage need to be trashed. If not trashed, it affects the man. The guilt that we carry from the past is the problem. It is not a sin. Sins does not exist. If at all it exists, according to me, the biggest sin is not understanding your true nature could be considered as a sin; because one life time got wasted for nothing. Or one life time was spent in ignorance.

Past is dead. You cannot go back and change anything in the past. So, leave the dead. Future is still unborn. You have only the NOW, to perform. This is the Present, the gift, from relativity. When you sleep at night, there is no past, present or future. Its all one. So, past, present and future exists only during waking hours or conscious mind. Be aware of that. When you exist in the present, when your mind stays with your current activity, there is limited energy loss. It is very minimal. It helps save energy. Save Energy, Save life. It means, the lesser the energy you spend, more you have in your possession. This keeps you fresh. This is why people say, that if you love your profession and always feel inclined to go for work, without any other consideration or pressure, you will never be tired.

So, understand that nothing is a sin. Mind does oscillate between past and future. It also nurtures guilt from the past and fear.of the unknown or future, which saps away energy. It also creates tremendous anxiety. So, the remedy is in being in the present. Mind should be present with all activities. This saves energy and also saves you from guilt and fear. You need to practice this only during waking hours, because, while sleeping, anyway, the time does not exist for you. You have to wake up to be aware of the time.

God Bless All

Love and only Love
