Comments on: "Swara Gnyana !" (30)

  1. Shri Chiraanji,
    I have been interested in swara shastra(swami sivananda rishikesh fame).
    I am happy to have located your website.The purpose of writing this query is to know your comments on personal experimental observations.
    My experience suggests that movement of prana/breathing through sushumna has either been not properly understood or not properly explained in clearly understood terminology.
    My understanding right or wrong (your comments needed) is thatwhen ida and pingala are equal and balanced it is sushumna alright.Since I practice kumbhak, I designate kumbhak as ida kumbhak, pingala kumbhak
    and sushumna kumbhak.Generally sushumna kumbhak degenerate into ida or pingala which I call as weak sushumna.When sushumna sustains itself
    even after few kumbhaks (60 t0 65)the degre of awareness one experiences
    is distintly different.There are three such regions of distinct awareness
    before one experiences unimaginable stage of pleasing and fulfilling intoxication .Perhaps these three stages of different degrees of awareness
    are referred as Vajra, Chitra channela of prana movements.(pl do comment on this also)
    Sushumna phase of prana /breathing movement with kumbhak has been found by me to be very very precios step towards deepenig awareness to most pleasing experience.
    With warmest regards


  2. Respected sir,

    thanking you for Providing divine knowledge Of swara.
    I gone through swara shastra, swara
    chintamani, shiva swarodaya.
    But so many my doubts are cleared through your article.
    But guruji, still I have Some doubts about tattvas and relation between our food. how it will effect?
    relation between birth star and swara tattava.
    relation between tamil pancha pakshi shastra and swara shastra.


  3. “Getting up early in the morning and touching the face with the palm of active swara gives desired goal”
    I guess this is one reason why we recite ‘Karagre vasate Lakshmi…..’ in the morning by looking at our palms and then touch our face with it.


  4. sudhendra said:

    Guru ji

    what do u mean my length of prana?

    is it length of our breath?

    har vaishnavuttam , vayu jeevuttam , hari sarvottam.


  5. Raguraman said:

    Om Om Namo Narayanaya Om
    Om Shri Gurubhyo Namaha
    Om Shri Raghavendraya Namaha

    Dear Guruji,

    I never heard of this thing (teaching in “Swara”) before this day.

    Consequently I have not an iota of idea what is Swara even after reading it many times?

    “by placing the palm below the nostrils about half afeet , one can notice the swara”

    I placed my palm, just as you said and all I could feel is my own breathing and nothing else…may be I do not understand what you said..

    In the entire article I could NOT figure out what is the definition of Swara.

    Is Swara different from Kundalini shakti which I keep hearing?

    For a total know-nothing like me with regard to yogic practices, please advice sir what is it that we should do. I mean please suggest what people like me can do to have a start in yogic practices?

    Can “Swara” be used to control mind and purify ourselves? If yes, how can I do this?


    • restricting swara is yogic practise , once swara is in control so is destiny , keeping swara in sushumna controls and purifies mind , but it gives detachment to worldly life .


      • karthik said:

        respected sir,
        i have a small doubt if controlling swara leads to control of destiny then will laws of karma apply to him ? will he be able to attain suzerainity over all of universe ? will lord’s will prevail / his will ? ( i know its lord’s will alone from depths of my heart but still i want explanation on this matter )


        • if we correlate between time and swara and jyotish you will see verything is related to prarabdha .
          there is the Saavana day that is equivalent to the period of time from one day’ssunrise to the next day’s sunrise. The divisions of that day are based on the time taken for
          one long syllable called Gurvaakshara (Guru + Akshara), given as:
          10 Gurvaaksharas = 1 Prana (Time taken for one respiration)
          6 Prana = 1 Vinadi
          60 Vinadi =

            1 Nadi

          60 Nadi = 1 Savana day
          30 Saavana days = 1 Month
          12 Saavana months = 1 Saavana year
          It is this Savana measure of time that is to be used for calculation of Dashas in Jyotish.

          “A combination of two Paramaanu constitutes an “Anu” (atom); and three “Anu” (atoms) make one


          . Trasarenus are visible [to the naked eye] when seen floating upward in the air while viewed through rays of sunlight which enter a room through a latticed window.

          2 Paramaanu= 1 Anu [sub-atomic particle, idivisible and cannot contain life]
          3 Anu= 1 Trasarenu –
          3 Trasarenu= 1 Truti – time the Sun takes to cross 3 Trasarenu is called Truti (8/13,500 parts of a second)
          100 Truti= 1 Vedh (8/135 parts of a second)
          3 Vedh= 1 Lav (8/45 parts of a second)
          3 Lav= 1 Nimesh (8/15 parts of a second)
          3 Nimesh= 1 Kshan, or Pal, or second (8/5 parts of a second)
          5 Kshan= 1 Kaashthaa (8 seconds)
          15 Kaashthaa= 1 Laghu (120 seconds or 2 minutes)
          15 Laghu= 1 Naadikaa*, or 1 Dand, or 30 minutes

          There are other finer and larger measures of time involved in Hindu astronomy and it may not
          be out of place to look at them:
          Krati =34,000th of a second
          Truti =300th of a second
          2 Truti =1 Luv
          2 Luv = 1 Kshana
          30 Kshana =1 Vipal
          60 Vipal = 1 Pal
          60 Pal = 1 Ghati (24 Minutes)
          2.5 Ghati = 1 Hora (=1 Hour)
          24 Hora = 1 Divas (1 Day)
          7 Divas = 1 Saptah (1 Week)
          4 Saptah = 1 Maas (1 Month)
          2 Maas = 1 Ritu (1 Season)
          6 Ritu = 1 Varsha (1 Year)
          100 Varsha = 1 Shatabda (1 Century)
          10 Shatabda = 1 Sahasrabda
          432 Sahasrabda = 1Yuga (Kali Yuga))
          2 Kali Yuga = 1 Dwaapar Yuga
          3 Kali Yuga = 1 Treta Yuga
          4 Kali Yuga = Kruta Yuga
          10 Kali Yuga = 1 Maha Yuga (4,320,000)
          1000 Maha Yuga = 1 Kalpa
          1 Kalpa = 4.32 Billion Years

          So a closer look will show that movement of planets at the rate of respiration of a particular person determines his fate . there are 86400 seconds in a day .
          an event in a life of a man changes least in 48.6 vighatis . or 19.44 minutes is the pranadasa .
          a situation changes every in 60 breathes . human requires 12 more such breath exercises to realise the impact of the event .

        thank you guruji for the reply


  6. Dear Chiraan Ji,
    I heard about this swara shastra and it was mentioned that it is a secret knowledge which will not be known unless you are destined. Is some core part of the swara shastra still reamins as secret?
    Does that mean all the readers of this article are good hearted and destined to know this? 🙂
    Observing swara and acting accordingly sounds as a simple procedure. How does GURU help in this? Please excuse my ignorance.



    • only guru will help know a swara as empty or full or in which tattva swara is flowing . etc .. many parts of it has not been revealed


  7. Chiraanavre,

    This is fantastic information.

    I wanted to ask a few queries? Please clear these doubts.

    1) I notice the whole article talks about observing swara; so if somebody wants a specific task done, can he control the swara to flow accordingly; or should a person wait until he has the right swara before he does the task?
    2) How can I practically know whether swara is in Ida or Pingala or Sushamna ?
    3) What is the relation between Pranayama and Swara shastra?
    4) Your past experiences talk about Swarato. What should be the swara while predicting horoscopes or advising others about God?

    Jai Bharateesha,


    • swara shashtra comes only by austerities , it took ten years for me to know exactly what is swara ? [ in the initial years of practise , my guruji used to say ” nadi nadiballudu ” i never understood , partially because i had deviated nasal septum , but slowly this dissappeared with time and my swaras were active , but mostly i had trained my initial years in complete kumbhaka , it gave total dissemination of life , my teacher told to abandon kumbahak ] swara changes every 2.5 ghati , swara can be changed by sleeping on the side of swara within minutes . so those who can change can change or others have to wait .
      2 by placing the palm below the nostrils about half afeet , one can notice the swara . pranayama helps regulate swara and increase sushumna .
      4 . while predicting swara should be accroding to the day .
      past few years i am always in solar swara .


      • Respected Achary Namaskars,

        My personal experience is when pingala is active person becomes rash,but for the betterment.Some days back i became so rash on my close elderly relative as he was consuming alcohol.The person could not imagine me becoming so rude to him.



  8. Acharya,

    Sastang Namaskars.
    You have given a great treasure of knowledge.
    I always feel the articles which you write is for me.
    I feel iam your favourite student.



  9. respected sir,

    can you please explain the terms ” reducing the length of prana ” ?

    you have mentioned about the types of acts a man can perform with women in this article is it analogus to chandrakala ?


  10. Dear Chiraanji
    I was planning to ask you which feet to put forward when leaving the house when I saw the article.From what I understand stepping out when breathing in the left nostril and with left foot forward is auspicious.
    About entering the work place [eg hospital] the same applies,am I right.
    Also you have mentioned various works in ida and pingala.Do you mean beginning of the work or the work in entirety.eg Surgeon should start surgery with breathing from left nostril or should breath from left nostril throughout the surgery.
    Kindly advice
    Thank you
