Sapthaha Jnana Yagna’, the week-long sacrificial
ritual conducted in Poornachandra Auditorium,
for the welfare of the whole world.
The week-long sacrificial ritual
coinciding the Navarathri Festival, Veda Purusha
Saptaha Jnana Yajna commenced in Prasanthi
Nilayam this morning marked with great spiritual
The legend has it that Dasara signifies the
victory of Devas over Asuras, i.e.,
Righteousness over the forces of evil. The
festival of Dasara, atypical in Prasanthi
Nilayam by its conduct and style, brings
nostalgic memoirs of the grand festivity of
olden days in the immediate Divine Presence.
This morning’s proceedings began at 0830 hrs.
with a ceremonial procession carrying the sacred Kalasha to the venue, Poornachandra Auditorium,
amidst Vedic chanting.
Proceedings at Poornachandra began by generating
sacred fire by friction, churning of two wooden
pieces. The fire generated was subsequently
placed at Bhagawan’s Lotus Feet, before
depositing in the sacred sacrificial pit,
marking the beginning of the Yajna.
Earlier, Kalasha Puja and Kumkumarchana and
other affiliated rituals were done at the Bhajan
Hall and Yajna Sankalpa (intention) was taken
before taking the Kalasha out for procession.
Even as the Yajna continued, students set out,
proceeding for Grama Seva. Today being the 3rd
day, villages in and around Puttaparthi would be
covered serving thousands.
A jampacked Poornachandra Auditorium attentively
witnessed the sacred proceedings in the morning.
Mangala Arathi was offered to Bhagawan at 1025
hrs. Yajna would continue after the Mangala
