My experience of Yagyas from CS Samavedula and the Vedic Yagya Organization.
“I think I have known Pundit Samavedula since 1999, but didn’t actually do any yagyas with him until 2002. At that time, I was in great misery for many reasons, and didn’t really see any way out. Samavedula was building a temple in the town I was living in, and I had the extreme luck to be living right next to the temple building.
Because of being a long time practitioner and teacher of the Transcendental Meditation Technique, and because I also had done many other courses of study with the TM organization, I knew quite a lot about the area of Vedic Technology called yagyas. I had also done yagyas with the TM organization as well as other pundits in India. I always had good results from the little yagyas I did, and knew that if done correctly they could do wonders in ones life. I didn’t continue with the yagyas from the TM organization or the other pundit, because they were too expensive; doing just a little yagya from these folks was very expensive, and in order to have the desired results, for the most part, one can’t just do one little yagya.
Well, I guess that depends on what a person wants. My life was in shambles, and I was looking for a complete transformation. I was feeling depressed, anxious, fearful, and the list goes on. I was feeling as though all the laws of nature had gone off to help others, and left me all alone to hold the very awful bag that my life was feeling like. Samavedula took me under his wing, and started doing some pretty amazing things. I am not saying that the changes took place over night, but now I hardly recognize myself. It wasn’t cheap, but because he was willing to do what ever was necessary to get me straight, with out continuing to ask for vast sums of money, I was actually able to afford the whole. As well, he did work on both my children, who also (especially the little one) were having great difficulties.
Samavedula did many yagyas for me in India, but first he started work for me in the little temple next door to my house. He said that the best place to start was on the planet Mars; a yagya called Kuja Shanti, which mitigates any difficult placement of that planet in ones Vedic astrology chart. I remember that yagya very well. Samavedula did the chanting, and he had me do the offerings. It was the first time I had taken part in anything like that, and what I remember is this feeling of great tenderness that surrounded me as the yagya progressed. It definitely felt as though a very soft, gentle feeling was entering my life for the very first time.
Not only did he do yagyas for me in India while I was here in the USA, but he invited me to go to India, stay with his family, so I and my children could be present while our yagyas were performed, and as well be part of many major yagyas that he did for the world. I was invited to a major Mother Divine yagya that took place at a Kumba Meela held in Kovur, Andra Pradesh, and to Varanasai, Uttar Pradesh to attend a very large yagya that went for 9 days and culminated in the MahaSivaRatri celebrations. We have stayed with his wife and children, and parents, and he has had us taken to many temples with a team of his pundits so when we were there, we could do the appropriate performances for that temple. Specifically what have I gained from this association that my family and I have had the honor to be part of? Well, my children seem to be more increasingly stable and happy as time goes on, and my little one who started on a very destructive path seems to have taken her life in both her hands and turned herself around. And for me? Well, I think the results have been stunning. I find myself doing things that bring me such joy. The anxiety, depression, etc. that I was feeling has dispersed, and I begin to feel the Laws of Nature coming up to support me, allowing me great fulfillment and happiness. If someone had asked me even 10 years ago whether I could imagine being this pleased with life, the answer would have been a simple no. I am more than satisfied with the results of my yagyas, and with the care that Samavedula has taken to make sure that the yagyas for me and my children were done with care and integrity and with the best possible results.”
