Yajmaans take part in the Vishvashanti Mahayagna

    As a part of traditional murti pratishtha rituals, a Vishvashanti Mahayagna, or a World Peace Prayer was conducted in the early morning by learned Brahmins from India. In this second yagna held in two weeks in North America, hundreds of yajmans performed the rituals in one of 84 yagna pits.

    Swamishri also graced the yagna and took part in the vidhi, during which he bathed Shri Harikrishna Maharaj with panchamrut, a combination of honey, ghee, yogurt, milk, and sugar. He also performed pujan of all the murtis to be installed during the murti pratishtha. In his blessings to the yagna yajmans, Swamishri described the importance of conducting such a yagna for peace within families, within society, and all throughout the world. He explained that, "such a yagna should be performed to please God, in fact, all of our actions should be done with this goal in mind."
