Veda Purusha Saptaha Jnana Yajna commences in Prasanthi Nilayam

Are the age-old sacred traditions of Yagand Yajna getting extinct from the face of the Earth? …And how about the Vedic Lore of the holiest of the holies -The Vedic tradition of yore?If carrying the burden of doubts galore, one must focus on sacrosanct Sri Sathya Sai Prasanthi Nilayam, the Holy Abode Of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, and here, one is sure to experience a natural feel of the golden greatness of the immaculate Vedic past that was rich with Yagas and Yajnas. Yes, Sri Sathya Sai Baba has come as The Avatar Supreme with His Mighty ‘Mission Sri Sathya Sai’ that includes the epochal Vedic Renaissance. 

At a time when righteous rituals like Yaga and Yajna are seemingly getting extinct from the face of the Earth owing to the ill-effect of the Kali, when the holiest of the holies, the sacred Vedic tradition is seemingly pushed to the backstage, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba with His Divine fore-vision rightfully initiated the Veda Purusha Saptaha Jnana Yajna in Prasanthi Nilayam in the early sixties, precisely in the year 1962, for the most selfless cause of Universal Harmony.

Continuing the sacred tradition, today, on the 3rd morning of the ongoing Devi Navaratri celebrations in Prasanthi Nilayam, the seven-day holy Veda Purusha Saptaha Jnana Yajna commenced on a religious note, amid holy Vedic reverberations.

The proceedings began shortly after 0900 hrs with a ceremonial procession carrying the Kalasha, which represents the Divine Mother, to the venue at Poornachandra Auditorium amidst Vedic chanting. The Ceremonial ‘Yajna’ Fire ever evinces greater interest among devotees, which emerges out of friction of twin wooden logs churned on each other. The generated sacred Fire soon set aflame the holy fire pit at the Yajna Kunda, marking the commencement of the holy Yajna at 0936 hrs. With the holistically fragrant smoke engulfing the venue amidst Vedic chanting, with the venue shining in splendour in His ever incomparable Divine OmniPresence, the auspicious session was truly nostalgic of those golden days of Bhagawan in the physical, Who would officiate the proceedings with His Personal Presence.

The Yajna continued post the Mangala Arathi offering to Bhagawan at 1045 hrs. Devotees were permitted to file past the venue at Poornachandra Auditorium for the most blessed sight of the Holy Yajna, partaking blessings.
