A unique Sadhana for getting rid of spirits!
Home is the basis of life - the basis of progress in life and the resting place. On the occasion of Navratri we present here a wonderful article that reveals a very important aspect related to one's home.
The title of the article might seem a bit strange, for one often comes to hear that a person is afflicted by spirits but very few people know that even a house could be troubled by ghosts and might be haunted. But this is a truth. And most people remain oblivious of this fact. The evil effect of the spirits that haunt the house can so influence the mental process of a person living in it that he could become perturbed without seemingly any reason and may not ever know what the reason is.
If we go through the history of mankind then we find that it is replete with such instances in which houses have been haunted by evil spirits due to which those living in them have even lost their lives. The list of such haunted houses is very long. And not just ordinary houses even palaces and mansions have been under such evil influence. Wordsworth house and Tower of London have become famous because of such influence. Many times ghosts have appeared and they simply walk through living human beings. Many times guards have sworn that they saw a rider on horse back. Sometimes bells start to toll even though no one has ever touched them.
In general life such things are not discussed because they are thought to be a taboo or a part of fiction. But it is a fact that if a family is living in such a house then the safety, the future and the progress of all family members is in jeopardy. In my own life I have seen many such houses which are haunted and the families living in them have had to go through strange experiences. And the amazing thing was that they hardly realised that the reason for this was the evil influence over the house.
Long time back I was living in a house as a tenant. Within a week of shifting into the house I started to realise that I felt disturbed without any reason. I did not even feel like doing Sadhana or any work. I thought it was because I had shifted to a new place that I was not able to concentrate in any work.
But then after a few days I discovered to my amazement that things that I left at some place would later be found lying elsewhere. I never moved them and yet they would be displaced. This did not perturb me much but then I started to realise that as soon as I would sit for Sadhana some dark shadows would start to dance around me. As I was living on the ground floor I thought that it was due to lack of natural light. I had a new tubelight installed but nothing changed. In fact slowly I became mentally disturbed and strange thoughts started to enter my mind. I approached the owner of the house and tried to know from him and his wife about the land on which the house had been built. But strangely enough they were not forthcoming with any information.
Another strange thing was that the owners were a childless couple and although the husband was perfectly healthy he had had an attack of paralysis and had been confined to the bed for past several years.
Then one day I came to know from the man who used to deliver milk that the house had been built on land that was once part of a graveyard. Under the very spot over which I had my room a grave had been discovered when the land was dug. But the owner did not pay heed to warnings and he built a house. Later there were problems and on the advice of a Muslim Fakir he had an alcove built in a wall.
The facts revealed by the milk man seemed authentic for there sure was an alcove in my room. Moreover some distance from the house there still was a graveyard. It seemed to me that someone had sold the land from the graveyard after misappropriating it and the owner had bought it because it came at throwaway price.
If a person is infatuated with his wealth, possessions, land or house then after death his spirit keeps haunting the place. One can know of the ghostly presence from strange noises, sound of someone walking about or whispers.
Once I lived in a house whose dead owner used to take a bath several times in a day. Many times in the night and some times even at night one could hear water falling in the bathroom and water flowing out of the drain that came out of the bathroom. Once the family living there stayed away from home for two months but water would still come out of the bathroom.
Many times the spirits are harmless and they haunt houses because they feel deeply attached to them. They do not harm anyone. But sometimes the spirits might become evil because they cannot tolerate anyone living in their former homes. A spirit could be harmless or evil it does have an adverse effect on the psyche of an individual.
I have had another experience of living in a haunted house. I had been living in the house for about one month when around midnight one day I heard strange noise as if someone was falling to the ground. I got up and ran out to find my younger brother lying unconscious. When he recovered his senses he said that he had got up to go to toilet when he saw a ghostly figure dressed in a British suit and hat trying to see the hour in his watch in the moonlight. The sight made my brother lose consciousness. I told him that maybe he was in sleep and might have been dreaming.
From that night onwards he started to sleep with me and he never went out during the night. It was clear that he had not been convinced by my reasoning.
About fifteen days later the owner of the house came to inspect his home. I asked him about his family history. From a room he fetched an old photo album and started to show it to us. On the very first page was the photo of the person my brother had seen. The owner said that it was the photo of his dead father. When we heard this we were left dumbstruck and within a few days we decided to change the place of our residence.
There are many indications that can tell that a person is living in a haunted house. Strange sounds, sound of foot steps, a feeling of strange fear, feeling that someone is standing nearby, a feeling of strange darkness in the house, feeling of sadness, illness without any reason, frequent quarrels among family members etc. are some indications which tell that a house could be haunted. Some times the situation could become worse and there could be danger to life of the person living there.
Houses are not bought everyday. An ordinary man cannot purchase and sell houses daily. It is after years of labour that one saves enough to be able to build or buy a house. And if the house or the land turns out to be haunted then such a person has no option but to bear with the disturbance.
However living in a haunted house is a great misfortune for oneself as well as for one's children. The best course in such a situation is to try some Sadhana while there still is time.
For Sadhanas the days of Navratri are very powerful and effective. I am presenting here a Sadhana for warding off evil influence from a house which is very quick acting and powerful.
Moreover one can also try this Sadhana even if there is no such influence. Navratri is a time when success in every Sadhana becomes assured.
For protection of a house from evil, for warding off evil, for protecting the family members and to get rid of ghosts and spirits the best Sadhana is that of Lord Hanuman. Lord Hanuman being one of the eleven Rudras is very easy to please and he is the master of all spirits and ghosts.
The house graced by the presence of Lord Hanuman can never be troubled by any ghost or spirit. The Sadhaks should make the best use of this wonderful occasion by trying Shree Hanuman Sadhana for the good of their families.
One can start this Sadhana on the first night of Navratri at 11 pm. Wear red clothes and sit facing South. On a wooden seat covered with red cloth place a Hanuman Yantra in a plate of copper.
Place as many Tantrokt Nariyals before the Yantra as the number of doors to your house. Also place before yourself a picture of Lord Hanuman seated in Veer Aasan or carrying a mountain.
Offer vermilion and red flowers on the Yantra. Also offer jaggery and pure ghee to the Lord. Do not use fragrance in this Sadhana. After this make marks of vermilion on the Tantrokt Nariyals. Light an oil lamp and with a red coral rosary chant one round of the following Mantra.
||| Om Shree Mahaanjanaay Pavan Putra-aaveshay-aaveshay Hoom Shree Hanumate Phat |||
The above Mantra might appear difficult to pronounce but this is a very powerful Mantra in each alphabet of which divine energy is instilled. One might feel during the Sadhana that some external power is trying to shake one's body. The rosary might for example fall from the hand. But this is because of the tremendous power of the Mantra. So do not be afraid. If the Mantra chanting is disrupted start again.
After the Mantra chanting place one Tantrokt Nariyal on each main door in the house. Next day leave the Tantrokt Nariyal and Yantra and rosary in some sacred place or bury these articles in the South direction from your home.
Due to the above Sadhana not only is the house purified rather due to the grace of Lord Hanuman one makes quick progress in life. If one regularly performs Sadhanas of Lord Hanuman then one gains a lot.
The day you try this Sadhana eat only fruit and milk, avoid useless talk and maintain celibacy. If one is not pure in one's thoughts then one cannot benefit from Hanuman Sadhana.
