There are three types of Karmas- Nithya, Naimithika, and Kamya karmas. Kamya karma 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.
Naimithika karma is one which is not shastra bound and not niyamic, i. Sunrise and sunset are the reason for doing Sandhya vandanam. Hence this is classified in the Nithya karma, which has to be done daily , lifelong. Sri Abhinava Theertha swamigal says whatever be the grade, it is always best to do it regularly.
The nadis ida and pingala are the paths of flow of Prana or life force. They are in a continued state of agitation during the daytime but, tend to follow a uniform path during the sandhya periods.

The mental effects are subtle. Lowering of heat gives tranquility. Achamanam being the starting point of Sandhyavandanam, this must be a preparation of the Sadhak for further kriyas. Every action in sandhyavandanam is an offering to Parameswara. Astra prayoga of Argya should be done. Then Gayatri japam has to be done. This is know as sankalpa.
Marjanam mantra to be said and water to be sprinkled on head. Pranayamam is the main activity in the entire sandhyavandanam. We do sin by thought, speech, and body. We have to get rid of the reaction arising out of these sins. So we do karma to get rid of these sins through the Sandhyavandanam. We utter mantras speech do gayathri japam thought , do marjanam and others bodily actions. Persons who do sandhyavandanam must have individual vessels.
Sandhyavandanam has to be done using those vessels. Sandhyavandanam should not be done hurriedly. Singing means to utter Her name with devotion and Bhakti. One who sings Gayathri mantra with devotion and bhakti would be ever protected. Chapter 3, Section 12 of this upanishad explains meditation of aditya through gayatri.
It also explains that the sun in the horizon outside and the sun element inside us are one and the same and there is no difference. The identity should be kept in mind while meditating through gayatri. Agasthya explains to Sri Rama, the merits of worshipping Aditya. Aditya protects everyone, helps them in their duties, gives lustre, removes ignorance and provides happiness. He is friend of water and resides in every living thing. It is said that one who does not perform Sandyavandanam is ever impure and is thus rendered unfit to perform the vedic rites — the nitya daily or naimithica occasional duties prescribed in the scriptures.
If however he did perform the duties once in a way in spite of self inflicted impurity due to non performance of sandyavandanam regularly the said performance will not yield any result. The purification covers both inside and outside of our body. Hence the format includes the purification process. Vedas recognize varuna snanam is not possible everywhere and under all circumstances.
Hence vedas recognise several alternative forms of bath. All forms of bath are equal in merit. Whenever conventional bath i. Recite the hymn below and sprinkle water over your head. Incidentally, this has been included in the sandyavandanam process itself.
This can be done under extraordinary circumstances like a long journey etc. Even those who have performed sandyavandanam normally but not within the prescribed limits should offer Arghyam mentally at the Sandhhya time, wherever he is irrespective of dress etc.
It is supposed to posess mystic and super natural powers. For best results correct recitation of the mantras is necessary.
By reciting a mantra either orally or mentally, we tune ourselves to receive this energy. This is very similar to tuning a radio receiver to receive the electromagnetic waves around us. The vibration characteristics of a mantra is very important. The words and alphabets have been chosen to achieve this objective. This is akin to combining the seven notes to produce different ragas or tunes. This is referred to as bio-electricity. Electric currents pass through10 sets of lines corresponding to 10 fingers and toes.
Finger tips and top of head constitute terminal points of these electric lines. Bio-electricity gets charged through water, earth, ether etc. Further if the flow of bio-electricity is normal the body remains fit and healthy. Every person has a natural aura around him an invisible body of charged particles also called bio-plasmic body. Flow of electricity within our body causes emission of electrons which in turn causes the aura. This field has been photographed through a process known as kirilian photography.
This was known in ancient India and was used for health. This ancient science has been developed by one Choa-kuk-sui The ancient science and art of pranic healing Cho-kuk-sui pub.
Health Accecories Manila, Phillipines for curing diseases also known as pranic healing. Detailed investigations and kirilian photography have shown that any disease first enters the bio-plasmic body and then our visible physical body.
Hence the healing process attempts to rectify the bio-plasmic body through induction of bio-energy at specific points of the body known as chakras. Remedial measures also include use of energised water. Brain cells are known to produce electric waves of different frequencies. This system also recognises the existence of electricity which is responsible for our health. This system recognises our palm and finger tips as control boards for manipulation or alteration of bio-electricity.
Healing is achieved by applying slight pressure to specific points. Modern scientists by passing sound waves through water have produced gas bubbles emitting blue light with very high temperature inside. These studies indicate the capacity of sound waves to energise water. Punyahavchanam is another vedic rite where in water is energised through vedic hymns. This approach in a miniature has been used in Sandyavandanam i.
Hence while performing these rituals sound waves must be produced emnating from the mouth. Electro cardiograms taking in a normal state, during pranayanam and during pranayanam mantra japam have been taken and they indicate substabtial changes during prnanayanam and japam confirming the fact that we absorb bio-electricity during these rituals. Though god realization is the main objective the importance of healthy body and mind have been duly recognized.
Apart from reciting hymns it also includes karanas — namely stance, touching different parts of the body etc. They help to achieve the twin objectives of god realization and health. Sandhya Vandanam. Powered by Coherendz.
