Sarva Jana Sandhya Vandanam – For everyone

Background

Life on this planet becomes more complex as intelligence evolves. This poses a challenge to the evolution of intelligence itself, as mind aspires far beyond the capabilities of our body and the environment.

Every individual including kids are under tremendous pressure to achieve something these days. When faced with tough, challenging situations our mind loses its balance, spreads negativity all around and pushes our body beyond its limits.

Tri-Kala Sandhya Vandanam is a daily procedure to synchronize our mind and body with our environment. It is supposed to be done three times a day to achieve this perfect synchronization. In my personal experience, doing it one or two times a day is also highly effective.

This synchronization of body and mind helps to reduce the Blood Pressure caused by anxiety and distress. When practiced continuously with understanding, one can clearly notice a ‘decline’ in their ‘anxiety levels’ and ‘stress levels’.

The procedure over a period had acquired a religious and a ‘class’ tone restricting its practice to few sections of populations. As happens to anything that get stagnated or limited, the practice is on death-bed.

In modern life-styles we give more importance to tuning the body muscles rather than the thoughts of our brain. If we spend ten minutes in the procedure daily we can tune the thoughts of our brain which actually influences our body.

I have attempted to provide a SJSV procedure (Sarve Jana Sandhya Vandanam) that requires very less time and at the same time effective. It is also a procedure that would not violate your religious beliefs and dis-beliefs.

Practise SJSV and Enjoy!

The Concept behind SJSV

A real meditation is a process of positive thinking when our body and mind are tamed down and synchronized. In such a state positive thoughts enter our deepest conscience and start guiding us from our inside during our normal times. This is the concept behind TSV, LSV and SSV.

When this SSV is done three times a day, the positive qualities ingrain in our deep conscience and one can feel the bliss ever.

If one is interested then they can think of the meanings of the mantras. It would be more beneficial. It is optional depending on the outlook.

The steps of SJSV

1.       Taming down our mind by Refresh, Calm down, Invoking Self-arousing property and Self-Confidence

2.       Taming down our body by Pranayama

3.       Synchronizing body and mind by Meditation, Goal-Setting, Salutation and Submission

 

Disclaimer on SJSV

There is no vedic sanctity for SJSV. It is a procedure that I follow when I am faced with time crunch, though I regularly try to do TSV. I have seen SJSV very effective on me.

 

Sarve Jana Sandhya Vandanam for Everyone (410 seconds)

Refresh and Reset (Time 20 seconds)

 

 If possible to sit in a half-sitting posture, please do so. Else in any seating posture, think of the following properties of Universe, as you sip the water.

 

Imperishable (Sip water once)

Infinite (Sip water twice)

Ever Evolving (Sip thrice)

 

Sipping small quantities of water refreshes us physiologically. Thinking of these properties of the Universe as you sip the water lifts us mentally into a different world. Now we are able to concentrate better.

Recite the following with action as stated here. Recite the wording and action synchronously and slowly. Do not hurry up in your action. Let the word and action synchronize and sink in you.

Let my expressions (touch the right cheek with right thumb)

Have soul in them ( touch the left cheek with right thumb)

Let me deeply reflect (touch the right-most end of right eye  with right ring finger)

And Seek my actions (touch the left-most end of left eye  with right ring finger)

Let me work ever (touch the right nose with right index finger)

Slaying my inactions (touch the left nose with right index finger)

 Let me establish order(touch the right ear lobe with right little finger)

In smallest of my actions (touch the left ear lobe with right little finger)

Let me have healthy heart (touch the right shoulder with right middle finger)

Let me have Joyful mind  (touch the left shoulder with right middle finger)

Let my instincts be open (touch the navel with all fingers pointed)

Let my emotions be controlled (touch the top of the head with all fingers pointed)

The above actions synchronize our thoughts and actions in brain. With this synchronization we are able to focus better. Do this with full concentration. In fact this procedure will help you in concentration.

Calm down (Invoke peace in our mind) (Time 10 seconds)

Think of the following now as it is or the meaning of it in your mother tongue, while gently tapping the both temples with knuckles.

 

 “With pure (Shuklam), protecting (BhaRtram), ever-working (Vishnum), reflecting (Sasi-varnam), pleasantly expressed (Prasanna vadanam)  thoughts (dyayeth), I invoke peace in all my actions”

 

Or simply

 

“With pure and pleasant thoughts Let me be at peace in all my actions”

Invoke the Self-arousing property (Time 30 seconds)

 

In this procedure we offer water to a guest (argyam).

 

Water is one of the places where that Self-arousing happens. Life arises from water. Hence we offer water or think of water, when we think of self-arousing property. Join both hands together and take hand full of water taking care not to join both thumbs with other fingers.

 

Think of the meaning provided here  or the meaning of it in your mother tongue.

Visualize the Respected ‘Self-arousing’ property of Sun. Visualize the radiance of Sun. Visualize that property comes into us as Self-confidence and we becoming ready to radiate.

That respected Self-arouser

Causing that Divine Radiance

I invoke that Self-arousing in me

 

Recite the above 2 or 3 times, each time offering water.

Invocation of Self-Confidence (Time: 10 seconds)

Close your eyes. Recite the following mantra, thinking of its meaning in the morning.

Think of the following now “Let me arise over all my dis-beliefs. Let me be self-confident”

Close both the eyes. Touch the middle of chest with both hands. Recite the following mantra

Meditate on the following now “Let me be aligned to the creation and become Originator”. To be aligned to the creation and be an originator one has to develop the ability to accept the results and continue.

Ten times Breathe Control (Time: 150 seconds)

 

Think of the following mantras as you inhale through the left nose, while keeping the right nose closed with right thumb, slowly till the end of the mantra.

 

Inhaling breath

Here we  visualize the evolution of planet earth by going back and the property that caused the evolution, as we inhale the breath.

 

 We visualize Earth first. Then we Visualize the Galaxy in which Earth exists. Then we visualize the space in which the Galaxy exists. Then we visualize the other stellar systems that fill the space. Then we visualize the matter and dark-matter in the Galaxy. Then we visualize the Energy that brings up the matter. Then we visualize the Universe which has all these components. Then we think of the self-arousing property.

 

The property that caused the evolution of Earth is Self-Arousing. We invoke that property in us while inhaling breath.

 

Think of the following words as you inhale through the left nose, while keeping the right nose closed with right thumb, slowly till the end of the mantra.

 

Earth, Galaxy, Space, Stellar systems, Matter, Energy comprising the Universe  caused by self-arousing property – I invoke that Self-arousing property in me

Visualize the above or think of the above as you inhale breath.

 

OR

 

Simply wish that you want to be self-arousing

Exhaling breath

Here we visualize the evolution of life and the property that caused the evolution of life as we exhale the breath.

We visualize the Water first. Then we visualize how the water flames the life from one form to another which causes the multiplication and evolution of life. We visualize how this ‘flaming’ property has created a perpetual life-creation mechanism.  We visualize how this flaming property is the basis of life in this planet, in other planets of this galaxy and anywhere across the space.

Now exhale the breath slowly through your right nose , while blocking the left nose with ring and middle fingers,  while thinking of the following mantras in such a way that u exhale completely when you finish the mantra.

 

Universe’s base medium or water due its flaming property becomes the immortal creator of life in Earth, Galaxy and across the Cosmic space

 

OR

Simply wish that you are able to ‘flame’ yourself or Radiate your light unto others

 

Do the inhaling and exhaling slowly without pressurizing yourself, without getting into a breatheless situation. The idea here is not quick breathing or deep breathing. It is very slow breathing. You inhale slowly till the inhaling mantra is recited. You exhale slowy till the exhaling mantra is recited.

Repeat the above 10 times (inhaling and exhaling).

Recite the following mantra one by one This is extremely important to stabilize our breath and make it normal.

Peace (touch the right ear with right hand and take it off)

Peace (touch the right ear with right hand and take it off)

Peace (touch the right ear with right hand and take it off)

Meditation – 1(0)8 times Invocation of Self-arousing (Time: 120 seconds)

Close your eyes. Concentrate and Recite the following Mantra atleast  18 times.

Think of the meaning provided here, at the end of  every line, as given here or the meaning of it in your mother tongue.

Visualize the Respected ‘Self-arousing’ property of Sun. Visualize the radiance of Sun. Visualize that property comes into us as Self-confidence and we becoming ready to radiate.

That respected Self-arouser

Repeat the above 18 to 108 times as you wish, thinking of the meaning.

Peace (touch the right ear with right hand and take it off)

Peace (touch the right ear with right hand and take it off)

Goal Setting (Time 20 seconds)

Close your eyes and think of the following or the meaning of it in your mother tongue

“ Let me acquire illuminance and regenerate the divine forces and create the best of best through evolution”

Salutation (Time 10 seconds)

Think of the following or the meaning of it in your mother tongue

Provider of the desire to create, Remover of our indignation (against creation), the one who resides in its creation, I salute thee

The one who resides in its creation could be simply nature or a supreme power. It just does not matter here. When we salute we acknowledge the superiority so that we can learn from that superiority and become best of best.

Again here the creation and desire for creation does not refer to just sexual prowess.

Desire to create (Kama)  is the desire to create beings of higher intelligence through radiating whatever we have without fear. It could be knowledge, wealth, love etc. Similarly our indignation against creation refers to our withholding of knowledge, wealth, love that would block the evolution.

Hence it is not just about progeny or sexual activity for creation. The fundamental principle is we radiate what we have fearlessly and that creates higher intelligence beings. It is applicable for sexual prowess as well as knowledge, wealth, wisdom, kindness, love etc.

Submission (Time 20 seconds)

Do a physical or Mental Namaskara to symbolize the bodily submission to that one.  Then recite the following mantra, while pouring water. If water is not available, then with all humility recite the mantra.

Now think of the following or the meaning of it in your mother tongue

Let me dedicate actions that are performed knowingly and those out of my control to the evolution. Let my direct and indirect actions be aligned to the goals of evolution”
