May 25, 21 Comments For the spiritual progress of a Human Being, both internal austerity as well as external austerity is quite essential. While noble thoughts and devotion to God constitute the practices such as Gopichandana Nama Mudra Dharana constitute the external austerity. Many of our holy scriptures proclaim that both of these are very essential for a person. Procedure for Mudradharana for Men What you need: 1. A block of Gopichandana 2. Two separate vessels one containing water for achamana and other for Vishnu nirmalya 3.
The Upendra form of Vishnu is to be remembered while wearing clothes. Inspite of all our efforts to keep oursevles pure, we knowingly or unknowingly become impure by our deeds and thoughts. He will, at once, render you pure, both internally and externally.
Importance of Achamana From ages, our ancestors have been giving great prominence to saucha or purity? Achamana is a simple and effective process prescribed in our scriptures for internal purification. This is necessary while performing any religious act.
One must look at the episode of uttanka from mahabhArata to understand the significance of purity achieved through Achamana. The story runs thus: After completing his studies at the gurukul, uttanka wants to offer gurudakshina to his guru. But his guru is reluctant to specify anything and asks him to request his wife if she has any desire to be fulfilled. Uttanka asks his guru patni but she is also initially reluctant. But after repeated persuasion, she expresses her desire to wear the ornament of the queen while serving the Brahmins in an upcoming religious function.
Uttanka sets out for the palace of king paushya to fulfill the wish of his guru? En route, with an intention to test him, indra deva appears and asks him to eat cow dung because his guru has also done so. Uttanka believes him and partakes the cowdung and urine.
He proceeds to the king? He meets king paushya and tells him about his need to fulfill his guru dakshina. The king asks him to see the queen who is inside the palace. But amazingly the queen is invisible to uttanka. He returns to the king and says? I cannot find the queen inside?. To this the king replies? The queen being a devoted wife a pativrata cannot be seen by impure persons?.
Uttanka realizes his mistake. He says to himself —? I did not perform Achamana after partaking the cowdung?. Immediately, he sits facing east and performs the Achamana as prescribed in the scriptures. He goes inside the palace. To his surprise he finds the queen there. Look at the profound effect of sipping three drops of water and the greatness of pAtivratya!
In this age we cannot totally comprehend the level of purity our ancestors used to maintain. At the least, we get an idea of how low we are in terms of purity when compared to our ancestors. Detailed information about Achamana, Pranayama and Sankalpa would be given in a separate article. Here it is assumed that the reader is familiar with these procedures. O gopichandana, born from the body of Vishnu, the remover of sins, O chakrAnkita, I salute you.
I smear you on my body, do lead me to salvation. Say the following prayers.

Gopi Chandana Naama Mudradharane Vidhaana
It is perhaps not yet three generations since Brahmins gave up the Gayatri. So they still may be called Brahmins. There are prayascittas expiatory rites by means of which the corrupted Brahmins will be remade true Brahmins. But there is no such hope for a Brahmin in whose family Gayatri has not been chanted for three generations. A member of such a family ceases altogether to be a Brahmin and cannot be made one again. The spark I mentioned earlier must be built into a fire.
Done scientifically, pranayama improves oxygen supply, expels carbon dioxide, helps blood circulation, improves concentration, memory power and general health. Bhasma and Gopeechandana grahanam - this is done as a means of protection, purification, Bhasma contains salts that have salutary effect on our body progression and as a symbol of brahminisam. This point is considered very central to the awakening of the thought process. Hence, kumkum, gandha and bhasma are applied here.
