SRI DEVI NAVARATRI BEGINS Sri Durga(Chandi) Saptasati

Wednesday September 24th - Friday Oct 3rd ,2014
What exactly is a Yagnam?The cycle of creation starts with Akshara (the Word indestructible); from Akshara emanates Brahma who is thecosmic reality. Yagna (Sacrifice) comes from Brahma, and from yagna comes Karma (Action). From Karma comesParjanya (Clouds and Rain), and from Parjanya comes nourishment (food). There is no life without food. During Yagna , evil thoughts and tendencies are sacrificed given up.
The sponsors, as yajamana, will reap all benefits:health and vigor, peace and lasting happiness, relief from evil spirits, and achievement for the lasting joy of realization of the true Self.
The yagnam is performed for the Universal Welfare. Surmount your difficulties, and be guided in the journey of life.
