A yagya (Sanksrit: संस्कृत Yajna; also anglicized as Yagya, Yagna or Anushthan) is a Vedic fire ceremony that connects humans with the divine. Various offerings are made to the sacred fire along with prayers and chanting. The sponsor of the yagya requests favors such as a good crop, cattle, good weather, progeny, good health, happiness, etc. Yagya is often called “Homa” or “Havana”, however these are different rituals.
It is a great joy to write to you about how my health has improved dramatically since you started the yagnyas!
My heartfelt gratitude to the VedicYagya Center. My husband’s first surgery was very rough, so I ordered Daily Rudrabhishekam Yagyas for him. During the second surgery, you held three days of Ganapathy Tarpanam yagyas for him. This surgery went much better. He is now home and recuperating well. I trust he will continue recovering well, thanks to the yagyas.

I am very pleased with the results and I thank you very much. In fact, my nephew, this baby a few days is still hospitalized because of an alarming drop of his blood platelets. Today, these platelets have doubled in quantity without any medication. Punditji thank you, Thank Punditji, Thank Punditji and JAI GURU DEV
Dear Pt. Samavedula, I had some yagyas done by your organization this past January. You gave me a wonderful mantra at that time that I have been using ever since. It is ” On hreem zoom Saha”. (I think that is the correct spelling.) Does this mantra have a translation into English, or is it done simply for the sound value? I am eager to know this
What is a Homa/Yagya, and how do they work?
As spiritual beings living a human experience, We can choose to rely exclusively on material resources, or we can petition the aid of our divine friends. A Vedic priest contacts the deities through the yagya and seeks their grace through divine energy on behalf of the person requesting the yagya. Improved health, prosperity, spiritual enlightenment, etc. are achieved with support of the divine and nature.
The Divine’s response is naturally mysterious, however this is not magic. Dramatic results such as recovery from terrible disease are possible, However the yagya itself does not remove the disease, but clears away karmic obstacles to allow the medical treatments to work. Think of an umbrella in the rain. If rain is forecast, it can’t be changed. However, just as an umbrella protects you from the rain, yagyas reduce negative karma’s effect by reducing the intensity of any misfortunes. The situation is then brought to a bearable level for the patron.
We don’t claim to cure every condition, We merely do all that is possible to allow Divine intervention to ease life and make it more positive. Think of it as an individual, family or business insurance policy. Global welfare and world peace are possible as well.
Just like pouring water on the roots of the tree will help it to blossom and produce beautiful flowers and fruit, prayers and offerings to the God of Fire during Yagyas/Homas help achieve the desired result. The results vary depending on the person’s negative or positive karmic level, their faith, dedication and other factors. According to the Shastras: “Depending on the karmas of the previous birth, one will endure difficulties in life such as diseases, financial troubles, disappointments etc. These can be reduced in intensity or neutralized through treatments, charity, performance of Japa, Homa/Yagyas, or other such good deeds.”
“पूर्व जन्म कृतम् पापं व्याधिरूपेण बाधते । तच्छांतिः औषधैः दानैः जप होम क्रियादिभिः ॥ “
“Poorva Janma kritam papam vyadhi roopena badhatey I
Tat shanthihi aushadaihi danaihi japa homa kriyadibhihi II”
How can one save him/herself from severe difficulties? How to find out when one needs help?
Sanskrit says – “हेयम् दुःखमनागतम् “
“Heyum dukham anagatham II” “avert the danger that has not yet come.”
Astrology is the Divine Shastra (Divine Subject) that has evolved from Sacred Vedic Texts for the purpose of predicting the future. This Astrological science is based on the date of birth, time of birth, and place of birth, and is connected directly with one’s natal chart and moon constellation. An astrologer uses this information, along with calculations to predict a person’s future based on the planet’s movements in his/her natal chart. Astrological Science in Sanskrit is known as ‘Jyotishya Vidya’ – ‘Jyoti’ means light, and ‘Isya’ means ‘Ishwara,’ or ‘Lord.’ Together, We get ‘The light that leads towards the Lord’. Light comes from peace, happiness and contentment which leads one to the Lord through self-realization. Astrology with the help of Homas/Yagyas helps one to avert danger before it arrives.
Purpose of a Yagya/Homa
Yagyas and Homas use the laws of nature to assist or reduce any tendency before it manifests. They work to reduce negativity while bringing support for success and fulfillment. Past negative karma is counteracted, creating positive karma for the present and future. Yagyas and Homas in combination with astrological analysis are the most reliable and proven remedial measures to avert danger and reduce negativity.
Yagyas counter specific health issues, financial difficulties, relationship worries and difficult astrological life periods. They also encourage protection, support in personal/business ventures and spiritual development. The Vedas prescribe many kinds of Yagyas and Homas to tackle just about every situation. Similar to modern medicine, one must follow a combination of prescriptions to deal with the situation and return to good health. Yagyas and Homas work in a similar fashion, using a variety of rituals depending on the nature of the problem, the time and intensity of the situation. Finally, a well-qualified person who has thorough knowledge and experience in Jyotish, Yagyas and Homas is paramount to success.

How to proceed with yagya services?
In addition to the prescribed Yagyas, we also offer customized ones. The proper date and time are vital to any Ygaya. Once the Yagya is ordered, we will contact you via email or phone to get the date of birth, time of birth and birthplace location. Your gotra (Sanskrit for ancestral lineage or ancestral clan) is also necessary. All of this information then helps us select the proper day for your Yagya.
The Importance of Yagya/Vedic Remedies and Their Origins
A Yagya is a process prescribed in the Sacred Vedic Texts and practiced by saints and sages throughout the ages yielding verifiable, positive results. The natural laws are vitalized for a specific effect. Through Yagya humanity has benefitted through harmony with all the forces of nature and the Divine Power of the Five Natural elements.
The Vedas are India’s ancient, sacred texts. They are composed in the world’s oldest language, Sanskrit. Hindu culture and essence, along with Yagyas stem from these texts. They are living and vital proof of Dharma (The Eternal Order, or Eternal Religion)
Sanskrit refers to the Vedas as ‘Apoorusheyyam’ (not written or composed by any human- Purusha). Their Origin is divine and pre-human and thus were called śruti (“what is heard”) by the Ancient Rishis immersed in their deep Yogic states (Samadhi ). Furthermore, they were revealed in a specific tone (Swaram) and wavelength.
The Ancient Rishis then passed the traditional Vedic teachings just as they had heard on to their disciples for generations.
How Do Yagyas Influence Us?
Vedic Yagyas have a deep influence on one and all. Vedic science uses the support of nature, wisdom, the Vedas, Astrology and Mantras.
The Different Vedic Yagya Remedy Processes
Pooja, Homa, Japa, Tarpana, Dana and Yagya are the common forms of Vedic remedies. Westerners know these all as “Yagya”, however differences do exist.
This is a simple form used in daily practice for everyone. A Lord is worshipped by 16 forms (Upacharas) of deities. The pooja ranges from a simple, short daily ritual at home to an elaborate one in a temple.
Homa (also known as Homam or Havan) is a small fire to which offerings are made.
Japa is the regular meditative repetition of a Sanskrit mantra of name of God for a specific number of times. The time period for Japa ranges from brief to very long. Japa enhances the spiritual strength of the person chanting.
Tarpanam is the recitation of the related mantra done to a Deity while placing some grains of rice along with holy water on a plate. The plate sits in front of a picture or statue of the Deity. The water is then left in a river or near any plant or tree where it then merges into the environment and blends with the overall level of consciousness. Nature supports the intention (Sankalpa) and achieves the desired effect.
Dana is making an offering at the end of the Yagya to a deity or planet. The Yagya’s energy is then transmitted to the sponsor.
Yagya is a very powerful fire ceremony and comes in many different forms. A specially trained vedic pandit chants sacred mantras and prayers over the fire. This is a very Saatvik (peaceful,balanced) and divine way to eliminate future worldly difficulties or to fulfill a particular wish.
