Dear Bhagavathas,

1) I have few questions regarding sandhyavandanam. 

How to perform sandhyavandanam during inconvenient times like
long distance travelling, bed-ridden illness and hospitalization ( I
beleive grahasthas have to do sandhyavandanam only after taking bath )
etc. Is there any alternate method of performing this.  can
we do only japam without performing other rituals prescribed in the
books like ( arkyam, avAhanam). Rather than skipping sandhyavandanam
during inconvenient times will reciting Gayathri alone be sufficient and

Other than sandhya kalam, can we recite Gayathri within our mind in
between our daily works ( when we have free time )

Is it prescribed that we should do japam in standing posture only during
PrAdhas sandhya kalam? 

I request respected members to clarify my doubts.

Om Namo Narayanayah
