Nine Planet Yagyas ($75)
This month's yagya program focuses on the Nine Planets (Navagraha). Astrologically, this is going to be a busy summer and fall!
Mercury is retrograde through 6/22. Saturn is retrograde through 10/11, Jupiter will be retrograde from 6/20 through 10/18.
In addition we have a solar eclipse on Thursday, June 10th. Eclipses are ideal from a spiritual perspective because the power of mantras is dramatically greater during an eclipse. We intend to take full advantage of this with a full day of yagyas and mantra repetitions.
Because this is an active time astrologically, it is ideal for performing remedial measures to enhance the positive qualities of the planets and to reduce qualities that are negative and undesirable. When planets are retrograde or making the transition from one sign to another, they are most receptive and our yagyas have added power and effectiveness.
This summer and fall are going to be especially sensitive because Jupiter will be retrograde and will reverse into Capricorn from 9/14 through 11/20.
Jupiter's positive energies are diminished in Capricorn because we consider him to be debilitated in that sign. While in Capricorn, Jupiter's positive and protective energies will be further diminished by the presence of Saturn. The main goal of this yagya series is to strengthen Jupiter and pacify Saturn.
We begin each day with a Ganesha puja followed by Rudra Abishekam, the recitation of Vedic hymns, pujas for the goddesses Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, plus Shiva, Vishnu, the Navagraha (nine planets) and the twenty- seven lunar constellations called Nakshatras.
After the abishekam is complete, the priests light the yagya fire and repeat the recitations along with offerings of ghee and other ingredients. The daily ritual performances take place from 8 AM to 1 PM.
When planets are out of balance, life has obstacles, troubles compound and solutions are difficult to find. When the planets are in balance, we experience fewer obstacles, troubles get resolved without delay and life is generally lived in a state of balance and contentment.
In short, these yagyas will help add smoothness to life, reduce negativity and enhance our enjoyment of the upcoming year.
We will continue our Daily Mrytunjaya Yagyas throughout the month.
Please join this unique and timely opportunity!
