From Sri Rangaraj Ramaswamy

Dear All,

0ne of the most important daily routines among the Brahman (Brahmin) is a prayer called SandhyaVandanam i.e. Nithya Anushtanam(Daily routine).

There are three types of Karmas- Nithya, Naimithika, and Kamya karmas. Kamyakarma is one which is done with a desire to achieve, like a yagya for long life etc .Even if kamya karmas are not done , there is no sin. Naimithikakarma is one which is not shastra bound and not niyamic, i.e., a necessary duty , such as taking bath after an eclipse.

Nithya karma is one which is `niyata nimitta' meaning ` that which is one which is shastra bound' . Sunrise and sunset are the reason for doing Sandhya vandanam. Hence this is classified in the Nithya karma, which has to be done daily .These are the spiritual and profoundly scientific value which one gets by performing thrice a day, regular SandhyaVandanams.

This prayer is offered thrice everyday, once before sunrise, again at Noon and third at the time of evening before Sunset.

This prayer is a combined subject of Religion, Health, Concentration, Yoga,Meditation, Exercise and Prayer. In one topic, 'Sandhyaa Vandanam' is just the ancient Vedic scripture that has pictured the core element of healthy living.

Even in today's polluted environments of air, water and the ecological factor, this practice of daily Sandhyaa Vandanam can be a relief from many a disease that affects the Brahman society.

Modern science has evolved the above conception as just and perfect for a healthy living. Many Yoga centres, that have spread all over the world now, teach and preach this today, even in the Western countries, where once they considered these Hindu practices as blind faith and foolish.

The practice of SandyaVandanam in itself is daily performed without fail at a calm peaceful atmosphere. This enabled the learners to control their emotions, temperament and anger to a larger extent and made them tolerant to others. Thus, a person doing this ritual never gets angry even in the worst of circumstances.

As everyone knows, the Sun being a Star, passes its rays all the time, whether day or night. Without its power, none on the earth can exist.Using these power for the good of human kind is taught in the Vedic scripts. The solar energy can be used not just to produce electricity for batteries etc., but also to recharge ones own body mechanism. As the body too produces electricity and magnetic phases, it is no wonder that ancient Brahman found it to live in his fittest way, healthier and longer.

During the noon prayer or Maadhyaanika Sandhyaavandanam, they used perform Soorya Namaskaaram (Worshiping the Star Sun), and there is a methodical way to seeing the Sun and to absorb the rays (solar energy ?) into their body.
It is widely believed that Surya Namaskaram cleanses the eye lenses. This practice prevents from early blindness. (Mind it, looking at the Sun directly may blind your sight and damage your eye lenses, so please learn it from a person who knows it well). While doing this too, they had to chant a prayer dedicated to the Lord and Star Sun, and this vibration, combined with
viewing the Sun in a methodical way, increases ones physical strength.

Unless practicing these Vedic systems, one cannot just feel and experience its highest values. What one needs is a simple commitment to the ethos evolved in the ancient Vedas and strict adherence to it in his day to day life. Then only can one gain the full value of peace, health and mental happiness.
