I would just like to let forum members know that Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is holding a very large yagnam for world peace over the next 12 days. According to sidereal astrology, this is an extremely auspicious time. To read more about why, I recommend the following link: http://www.lunarplanner.com/LunarMonths2006/lunarmonth.06.07.24.html#Saturn

Swami's yagnam, named the Atri Rudra Maha Yagnam, will cause any prayers, meditation or any other kind of spiritual work done by any of us over the following 12 days to be more efficacious than usual.

With the Middle East blowing up as an external reflection of our own inner battle for light to overcome darkness, my own view is that this yagnam could not have come at a better time.

About the ARMY (Ati Rudra Maha Yajnam)

Sage Satapatha in his treatise “Maharnava Karma Vipaka” listed four types of Abhisheka procedures compatible with Vedic and scriptural lore. Those are Rudram, Ekadasa Rudram, Maha Rudram and Ati Rudram – each being more potent than the preceding one. Of these, the most potent form of Ati Rudram involves 14641 Rudrams (Rudram is a combination of Namakam and Chamakam given in Rudradhyayam in the 5th Prapathakam of the 4th Kanda of Krishna Yajur Veda Samhita). Namaka recited once along with recital of Chamaka once constitutes one Rudram. Recital of 11 Namakas along with one Anuvaka of Chamaka at the end of each Namaka, thus completing one Chamaka constitutes Ekadasa Rudram. Recital of 11 Ekadasa Rudrams is Laghu Rudram or Rudraikadasini. Recital of 11 Laghu Rudrams is one Maha Rudram. Recital of 11 Maha Rudrams is one Ati Rudram. Therefore, in Ati Rudram 14641 Rudrams include 14641 Namakams and 1331 Chamakams. Simultaneously with Rudrabhisheka, Rudra Homas are conducted by 121 priests well versed in Vedic rituals in 11 Homa Kundas erected for the purpose. A Linga is being installed especially for the purpose of conducting Rudrabhishekam daily. Side by side the Rudra Parayanas and Rudra Homas, other related rituals such as Sri Sai Gayatri Homas, Lingabhisheka Poojas, Kramarchana Parayanas and Tarpanas will also be performed.

This Maha Yajna is being performed for Loka Kalyana and good of all mankind as well as to ensure universal peace and prosperity. It is, indeed, our good fortune that such a grand Vedic ritual is being performed in a selfless manner in the Divine Presence of Bhagawan, the very embodiment of Siva-Sakti form of Absolute Cosmic Energy in its entirety.

For a streaming video presentation of the recent ARMY conducted by Baba at Chennai, visit this link:

The video is of excellent quality and creates the feeling of being there.

There was also a mass rendition of Adi Shankara's Saundarya Lahiri in Bangalore on 29 Jan 2007, which was recited by over 60,000 women, 100 shlokas, one raga and one voice.

Two major Hindu Spiritual events in the New Year. And then the miracle of the world's largest dredging devices breaking at the efforts to destroy the Rama Sethu bridge. Are these signals of an approaching spiritual renaissance? Let us hope for the best and be prepared to contribute our mite and enjoy the benevolent, spiritual might.

Dear Saidevo

Sai Ram.

I'm so glad you're enjoying Swami's yagnam. So am I. I am watching it on my computer, and the chanting of the monks is so powerful, it is changing the vibrations in my room. I've been watching it for several hours in the evenings of the last 11 days, and I can already feel massive benefits to my state of my being, in that I feel much calmer, much more centred and much more in tune with Spirit. I hope you are also having equally beneficial results.

All best wishes to you,
