Sandhya Vandan

My nephew Varun, learning to do the Sandhya Vandan, a service in preparation for reciting the Gayatri Mantra. It was about 3 weeks since his Upanayana (thread ceremony) during which he was invested with the sacred thread (see it on his left shoulder) and had his head shaved, marking his "re-birth" as a student of the scriptures, seeking the ultimate truth.

Can you please provide a video clip for how to do sandhya Vandan. I want to learn it again at this age ( 36) but absolutely no time to go to Guruji. If there is a videoclip , I can learn the uchchaaraas and Mudras from it.

Hi Prasanna:
Sorry I don't have a video clip of the Sandhya Vandan.

But its a great idea and something that I will consider preparing in the future.

In the meantime, you may want to consider talking to a local Bhat-maam and he could walk you through the steps of the Sandhya Vandan.

Best Wishes
