Rig, Yajur, Sama, and Atharva Veda Yagyas
Advancing toward enlightenment
Includes our Annadanam (food) Yagyas
Daily Mrytunjaya Yagyas through August
The Vedas are the original source of the knowledge of yagyas, mantras and how to use them to support and protect all areas of life. Our yagya program will feature the recitation of the complete Rig, Yajur, Sama, and Atharva Veda so that we gain the benefit of every yagya and every mantra contained within.
Rig Veda is the oldest of the Vedas and contains over 10,000 powerful verses and dates back to 1,500 BCE. Yajur Veda dates back to about 1,000 BCE and consists of the procedures and details for most yagyas including two versions of the Soma Yagya, the Agni Hotra, Ashvamedha Yagya, the Sarva Medha Yagya and special yagyas for our ancestors.
Sama Veda is the Veda of devotion. It consists primarily of Rig Veda verses recited in a special melody and rhythm in order to facilitiate the expansion of the heart and enliven the presence of the divine within.
Yajur Veda contains Rudram and Chamakam - the special hymns for Shiva, as well as the famous and powerful Mrytunjaya and Gayatri Mantras. There are many yagya rituals in this Veda.
The Atharva Veda is a wonderful source of useful mantras and rituals to protect health, family, wealth, etc. It is based in part on the Rig Veda and contains many hymns from that text.
The effects of this yagya are both subtle and profound. They continually increase our ability to realize our goals and aspirations; both spiritual and material. The series has a naturally positive influence on our family and previous generations (Pitr Yagya) and our spiritual growth (Soma Yagya), health (Rudram and Mrytunjaya Yagya) and overall success in life (Ashvamedha Yagya).
The yagya will be performed over a 10 day period with vedic recitations following the Rudra abishekam ritual in both the morning and evening. The combination of all four Vedas is quite rare because it is so difficult to assemble the highly qualified pundits needed for this procedure.
These spiritual texts have been carefully maintained with precision and accuracy by the lineage of Brahmin priests in India. This yagya not only benefits us directly, but is also a way to preserve and protect this profound and invaluable knowledge for all of humanity.
This program of vedic recitation is supplemented by our Anadanam Yagya
and Daily Mrytunjaya Yagyas though mid-August.
Please join us and enjoy the yagya blessings!
