Yagna (Havan) is claimed to be one of the highest act a man can perform as per the Vedic culture. We have built yagnashala where yagnas are performed daily 365 days a year with precise Vedic chants and all required offerings. Apart from the spiritual benefits there are innumerable other benefits of performing a yagna. Everyone gets benefit of pollution free environment, which we preserve by yagna.
Yajna means Lord Visnu, or sacrificial performances. All sacrificial performances also are meant for the satisfaction of Lord Visnu. The Vedas enjoin: yajno vai visnuh. In other words, the same purpose is served whether one performs prescribed yajnas or directly serves Lord Visnu.
If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.:- Krsna accepts even a little flower from His pure devotee. He is not in need of anything from anyone, because He is self-sufficient, and yet He accepts the offering of His devotee in an exchange of love and affection. Without the basic principle of bhakti, nothing can include the Lord to agree to accept anything from anyone. Bhakti is never causal. The process is eternal. It is direct action in service to the absolute whole.
He clearly requests that a leaf, fruit, flowers and water be given to Him, and He says of this offering, “I will accept it.” In the Third Chapter, verse thirteen, Sri Krsna explains that only the remains of sacrifice are purified and fit for consumption by those who are seeking advancement in life and release from the clutches of the material entanglement. Those who do not make an offering of their food, He says in the same verse, are eating only sin. Krsna has no need of food, since He already possesses everything that be, yet He will accept the offering of one who desires to please Him in that way. The important element, in preparation, in serving and in offering, is to act with love for Krsna.
Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer or give away, and whatever austerities you perform – do that, O son of Kunti, as an offering to Me.:- In Hinduism, Yajña (Sanskrit यज्ञ yajña; also anglicized as Yagna, Yagya or Yadnya) is a ritual of sacrifice (Monier-Williams gives the meanings "worship, prayer, praise; offering, oblation, sacrifice") derived from the practice of Vedic times. It is performed to please the gods or to attain certain wishes. An essential element is the sacrificial fire - the divine Agni - into which oblations are poured, as everything that is offered into the fire is believed to reach the gods.
A Vedic yajña is typically performed by a priest, with a number of additional priests, next to their dozen helpers, by reciting or singing Vedic verses. Usually, there will be one or three fires in the centre of the offering ground and items are offered into the fire. Among the items offered as oblations in the yajña include large quantities of ghee, milk, grains, and cakes. The duration of a yajña depends on the type; some can last a few minutes, hours or days and some even last for years, with priests continuously offering to the gods accompanied with sacred verses. Some yajñas are performed privately, others with a large number of people in attendance. There are 400 yajñas described in the Vedas. Of these, 21 are theoretically compulsory.
Yagya is The Most Effective Remedy
For a remedy purpose Yagya is most influential. There are three energy sources in this universe - Light, Sound & Magnet. Light is very good system but it has limitation; it can't reach beyond the wall or a non-transparent medium. Magnet is also very effective but it needs a metallic-medium to pass its energy through. But the sound is everywhere reachable that's why it has been used most. As Mantra is based on sound system, it guarantees the best effect of Yagya. Moreover the Yagya is absolutely natural process and thus peaceful and long-lasting too. The most important benefit of Yagya is that it is 100% positive. It means, it shall give result in any case, whether 99% or 40% but always positive. It never gives negative result. One more benefit of Yagya is, that, it has no reverse effect even you do wrong Yagya; because, in every Yagya (at least with Ved Bhawan, others practice tantra too on name of Yagya) only Vedic Mantras are chanted and spiritual rituals are performed. Reversely, if you chant a Tantrik Mantra in wrong / incorrect method, you get reverse influence. Therefore a Yagya can be called - FOOLPROOF. Not only this, in case if you do not to see the expected benefit of Yagya, still it's a devotion and donation and has eternal influence for your soul and karma. This is the most important reason why we choose Yagya to promote as remedy because more or less, correct or incorrect, however you do, it has always result and positive result. This is the reason why Yagya was 10000 years ago too popular and now too is popular.
A Puja is a ritual where of course mantra is also recited and fire sacrifice is also done, but all are voluntarily. It means you are not bound by the regulations and the quantity of mantras.
It has certain target and certain procedure which must be completed exactly to get the result. The result of Yagya is mostly experienceable and definite. You do a Yagya for a particular purpose and the Pandits are bounded with the rules of Yagya. The Mantra quantity is very high and is a must.
Types of Yagyas
Yagya can be divided in 2 groups
1. Nishkaam (without intention)
Nishkaam (without intention) or Nishkaam Yagyas are very broad. For example, devotion or our regular prayers, agriculture and education all these are one or another kind of Yagyas. For example if you are a teacher, you give knowledge, so it is called Gyan Yagya. The basic symptom is that these Yagyas have no certain desires for doing this and become fruitful after a long time in an uncertain manner which you can't identify. For example if you give a donation, you get this money or perhaps more back in shape of profit in your business or a discount in a purchase. If you study, or if you teach, you get helped by that knowledge in a certain situation. Only thing is that you can't expect immediate or certain result by these Yagyas.
2. Sakaam (with intention)
Oppositely you have a problem and you want help, or you have certain desire and you want to fulfil that, than you do Yagyas for intentions or Sakaam Yagya. These Yagyas too have 4 types
This Yagya helps you minimizing evil influences of the planets to survive in a period with un-favorable planets.
- Yagya for Prevention
These Yagyas are to prevent any danger that you feel or see in coming future or it is predicted by your astrologer.
- Yagyas for Cure
