SRI SRI MAHA VISHNU MAHA LAXMI YAGNA 2007
“All beings are evolved from food; production of food is dependent on rain; rain ensues from yagna, and yagna is rooted in prescribed action. Know that prescribed action has its origin in the vedas, and the vedas proceed from the Indestructible (God); hence the all pervading Infinite is always present in Yagna.”
The above sloka from Srimat Bhagabad Gita, gives the perspective on the necessity and purpose of a Yagna . This is what the ancient Rishi's of the Vedic age believed in and the same is endorsed by the god-head Sri Krishna himself in the Gita.
In keeping with with the Vedic tradition and spirit Gurudev Shri Shri Mohanananda Bramhachari Maharaj instituted and himself performed Sri Sri Mahavishnu, Mahalakshmi Yagna for more than 20 years. This yagna that he performed is also known as “Vishwa Kalyan yagna” since the purpose of this Yagna is to seek welfare of the entire humanity, cutting across caste, creed, religion and nationality. The purpose is also to seek protection and sustenance of the Nature, animals & birds and the mother Earth.
The invocation of the divine is best done through the medium of Fire or Yagni as its said that Yagni is symbolic representation of the Mouth of the divine.
Gurumaharaj had chosen the holy pilgrimage centre of Sri Badrinath dham as the place for performing the Yagna as this is the Vishnu khetra and most importantly this is the highest place for performing Sadhana ( spiritual practice ), Narayan himself practiced his Sadhana and Sri Krishna had is initiation ( diksha) in this holy place. The difficult terrain of the land and the ardous journey one has to undertake to reach this holy place perhaps makes this a preferred choice for the Muni's & Rishi's…. It is said that any Yagna or Sadhana performed in Sri Badrinath dham results in getting the grace of Sri Narayan comparatively quicker than other holy centre's. The natural environs of Badrinath in between the Nar and Narayan mountains with the Nilkantha peak overlooking the valley gives the environment a divine setting.
Gurumaharaji performed the Yagna till his last years even when he was well passed 90 . For him welfare and well being of the humanity was of utmost importance and for this purpose he was always prepared to undertake the arduous journey and Strain even when his health was not keeping well.
In keeping with his Guru's spirit and wishes Srimat Kalyanananda Brmahachari had the divine inspiration of performing the Yagna at Badrinath dham. His strength of divine blessing and Gurumaharji's constant guidance in his astral form enabled the Yagna to be restarted and performed with divine success in Sept 2007 inspite of number of obstacles .
This year the Sri Sri Mahavishnu , Mahalakshmi Yagna will be performed at Sri Badrinath Dham between 12 -15 th Sept 2008.
Guru Maharaji's devotee's and bhakta's in general are welcome to participate in the event and experience the divine presence of Guru Maharaji and be bestowed with grace and kripa of Sri Vishnu and Sri lakshmi .
