Somayag 2017 - 6th Day

On the path to the bank of the sacred Narmada river everyone was filled with joy, there was music and dancing. Sarvajit Paranjpe gave a short talk and thanked the priests and all present for culminating this planetary healing event successfully.

"This Yajnya is called Somayag because of the juice from the herb Somavalli is used as the main oblation.

Somayag 2017 - 4th Day

       "There are some special Yajnyas (HOMAS) like SOMAYAG which are to be performed based on astronomic conditions. They are performed for purification of the environment, reducing the burden on the mind, making mind full of LOVE. In such Yajnyas chanting of Mantas and offerings to the fire goes on for several days."

Each act, each gesture, each oblation, each Mantra of the Rutvijas is in accordance with the Vedic knowledge.

Somayag 2017 - 2nd Day

          "Vedas are the source of all knowledge. Vedas gift us the science of Yajnya (Bio-energy) which has the power to heal much of the horrific effects of man's inhumanity towards his fellow man and towards Nature, which is now reeling from poisons, pollution, violence and violation of every kind."

Somayag 2017 - 1st Day

     The Rutvijas (priests) had arrived for the beginning of the Somayag.
"For every Somayag four groups of rutvijas are necessary, each well-trained in one of the four Vedas. The training takes at least 10 years and must begin at a young age for a person to be able to master all the mantras. They work as a precision-trained team, chanting for many hours daily and carrying out varied procedures, using an array of special Yajnya implements. They also perform a number of other tasks necessary to the Somayag, such as moving equipment, carrying wood, cleaning implements and helping to build some places needed during the Somayag."

The priests' guide was

Somayag 2017 - Arrival of Fire

          "The ancient science of bio-energy given through the Vedas describes certain energy processes which have the power to effect a change in the functioning of PRANA (life-force which pulsates through us and connects us with the cosmos). These energy processes come under the category of YAJNYA. Somayag is one such Yajnya.
         The beneficial effect of each Somayag lasts for several decades. The atmosphere becomes medicinal, nutritious and disease-free. Somayags yield a qualitative and quantitative improvement in the psyche. By using this Supertechnology we can eradicate pollution factors on a large scale."

On February 6, the Yajaman Dikshit Achal Apte arrived with his wife Bhakti and his son Sudaksha of 4 years of age, bringing the energy of the Tretagni Fire, which is being practiced in their home since generations.
