Optimal benefits from specialty yagyas performed at celebrated temples

We've been traveling to India regularly the past 20 years - more than 80 times. Over the years, working with pandit groups associated with different temples, we've found that some temples (dedicated to a particular God or Devata) specialize in certain yagyas. While they may perform a variety of yagyas, some work better than others. This is due to the God or Devata of the temple and its relevance for particular yagyas. Over the years we've explored and cultivated working relationships with a number of temples specializing in particular yagyas. It has been our experience and more important our clients' experience - this approach works well.

India is "Dev Bhumi": land of the Gods. It has many places where the Devata value is lively and accessible. Devata or deeper, Universal reality (God or presiding impulse of natural law) is lively and accessible in and around certain special locations. From one perspective, we can say Devata, land and families living on the land are not seperate. Although they appear as seperate entities, they are, in fact, part and parcel of the same reality. It can also be said the reality of the Devata (universal, eternal Law of Nature) has permeated these places since time out of memory. Accordingly, temples are constucted to serve as a focal point. The deeper universal reality (Devata) is not separate from the land, the temple or indeed the families who have lived there for generations. And the pandits born of these families perform the yagyas.

While pandits are integral to the Yagyas - because they recite the mantras and perform the ceremonies - they are not separate from Devata. So the land, temples, families and pandits born of the families - are an expression of Devata: the deeper Eternal Universal reality - the greater wholeness. Therefore it's fair to say the influence of the Devata (grace, blessing) operates through the temple and the pandits who service the temple. In this way, speciality Yagyas performed at celebrated Temples deliver optimal benefits .

Yagya relieves the suffering due to malefic planets.

Our joys and sorrows in this life are the fruits of actions (karmas) done in previous births. The fruits of our past actions are mediated or delivered to us by the planets. Their arrangement in the heavens at the time of birth is a karmic map of our life. Vedic astrology interprets this ‘star map’ (horoscope) and makes predictions based on it. Planets activate during the period of life allotted to them. A malefic or afflicted planet in the horoscope will deliver problems in the life period ruled or influenced by it. Yagya relieves suffering due to malefic planets.

Navaratri 9 Days Yagya invokes the totality of Mother Divine - the wholeness of which Maha Laksmi is one aspect.
