What is Yagya


The meanings of yagna are vast and varied, enough to fill a book by themselves. Yagna can refer literally to the havan/fire ceremony, where we sit around a fire, placing offerings into the flames. It can also be used to mean seva or sacrifice. The most common usage, though, is the yagna which refers to the havan ceremony, involving a large fire. This is one of the most common rituals in Indian culture. It is used on most important occasions, ranging from weddings to the opening of new businesses to graduations to prayers for someone's health. The offering which is placed into the fire consists of several elements, including jav, sesame seeds, rice, ghee, incense and sandalwood. Each element has a different significance. It has been said that simply inhaling the smoke of a holy yagna fire has the ability to cure ailments of the lungs or respiratory system. Yagna is, in essence, a purifying ritual. Just as fire purifies everything it touches, so we perform yagna that we may made pure.

The ahuti (offering) is made up of a variety of seeds. These seeds symbolize our ego. Just as a seed planted in rich, fertile soil will flower, blossom and grow its roots into the ground, so will our egos grow and strengthen if we nurture and nourish them. Yet, a seed that has been roasted can never germinate. So, we offer our egos to God - to the divine Fire - and pray that He will burn our egos in the fire of His grace.

We sit around the yagna to remind us to keep God and purity in the center of our lives. Too often, we want to be the center of everything; we want to be the most important; we want offerings to be made to us. That is the root of our unhappiness. So, in a yagna, we sit around the fire and place our offerings inward. This reminds us that in life we should be on the outside, with God in the center, and we should just offer in, offer in, offering our every breath, every thought, every action at His holy feet, praying for Him to purify us. In yagna, if you listen to the slokas, you will hear that many end with "idam namamah." This means, "not for me, but for you." It means that whatever I do, whatever I have, whatever I give, it is not for me, but, God it is for you.

The Sanskrit word Yagya is derived from the verb - "Yaj" = Fire Sacrifice. Yagya is a combination of Traditional Vedic Rituals perfomed for getting nature support in a particular direction. In a YAGYA with us, 6 duties are performed - Bhakti (devotion), Puja (worship), Jap (recite of Vedic Mantra or Vedic Verses for a particular purpose), Hawan (fire sacrifice), Daan (donation) & Brahman Bhojan (Daily eating of Pandits). This whole process together is called - 'Yagya' and because we strictly follow hard Vedic regulations of singing, chanting, using Vedic Mantras in rituals, we call it Vedic Yagya. Yagyas are performed for individuals and for societies or for a nation for several purposes and targets.
