SWASA PRASNA OR SWARA PRASNA:
The astrologer has to observe his breathing. The left side breathing is called Ida and right side breathing is called Pingala. Ida Swasa is good on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Pingala Swasa is good on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.
When the breathing (Swasa) is favourable, the person will get good health, monetary gains, good food and fructification of desired deeds. When the breathing is not favourable, the person will get adverse results.
CHESTA PRASNA OR TOUCH OF LIMBS:
If the person asks the question while touching his chest, the person will get favourable result immediately. Similarly, if the person asks the question while touching auspicious items, the desired result can be fructified soon.
Naval, nose, face, hair, nails, teeth, secret parts, feet, ring finger are considered to be bad parts of the body. Hence when the person is asking the question he is not supposed to touch these parts.
