It was my unquenched desire to provide Ghana
Paathaa in script form to people, who, either did not have opportunity to
pursue formal Vedic studies or has not reached Vikruti Paathaa during their
studies, but have enthusiasm to recite some part of Ghana paathaa. Now a day,
finding a qualified Ghanapathi is a very difficult task, since it takes a very
long time to undergo the difficult part of their curriculum, like enormous
portion in Samhita itself, and different kinds of rules (Lakshanaa) for Vikruti
Paathaa etc. Hence to become Ghanapathi in Veda would take more years.
After writing Ghana Paaatha for Sri Rudra,
Chamaka, Pancha Rudra, Yajur Asirwada Ghana Patha (Vol-1,2,3) I decided to
write this Special Suktas from Rig Veda, which is having more meaning, easy to
recite and understand, so that learners can recite these mantras in any
occasion for blessing.
also important to note, many people asked for these after above-mentioned works
was released, because they have interest in learing. As I said in my earlier
books, it is my duty to consider all your valuable feedback to improve as much
as possible. Futher it is my duty to disseminate the knowledge God has given me
on this subject.
