Shraddha and Pitri Yagyas

The Vedic tradition assumes that the soul passes through a series of incarnations on its way to moksha or liberation from rebirth. The tradition also holds that support from previous generations of a family are vital to our enjoyment of success and happiness in this life. There are specific yagyas that can be performed for previous generations to provide them with comfort and protection.

We are very fortunate to have a staff of highly qualified pundits in Varanasi, traditionally the very best place for these yagyas to be performed. The rituals use special mantras to dissolve accumulated karmas. These mantras are performed by priests who have spent many years mastering them and who have also received training in the performance of the traditional rituals themselves. They can be perfomed as a 5 priest/5 hour yagya, a 1 priest/3 hour yagya.

Private yagyas are performed at our facilities in Varanasi (North India) or Kanchipuram (South India) by our teams of exceptionally qualified priests and pundits. For the one and five priest yagyas we take photos of your event and forward them to you afterwards.

During the puja or yagya, your name and nakshatra (vedic star) is read aloud in the sankalpam (statement of purpose) along with your intention for the yagya performance. After you have made payment for the yagyas, please click here to send us your birth time/date/place so that your nakshatra can be calculated.
