YAJNA ASH

TANGIBLE BLESSINGS

YAJNA ~THE SACRED FIRE CEREMONY

A yajna is a fire ceremony in which mantras from the ancient Vedas and Puranas are chanted to invoke the presence of the Supreme Lord. The purpose of all yajnas held in the ashram is to uplift all humankind. During the ceremony, many offerings are made to the fire. These offerings thank the Lord for what he has given us, and are a way of returning a small part of his bountiful grace. The yajna ash is what remains of the offerings once the ceremony ends, and this ash is permeated with the sankalpa of that particular yajna.

HOW TO USE YAJNA ASH FROM SIDDHA YOGA MEDITATION YAJNAS

 

Yajna ash can be used in many ways so that these blessings can flow into many different areas of our life. Traditionally in India, yajna ash is often taken orally on the tip of the tongue or with a little honey or water.

Here are some other ways, recommended by our Brahmin priests, that yajna ash can be used:

FOR MEDITATION
Apply a little on your body before meditation. The best places to apply the ash are on the main chakra points: the ajna chakra between the eyebrows, the heart chakra, or the navel chakra just below thenavel.

FOR SANCTIFICATION
To sanctify your garden, house or office you can use some yajna ash. The simplest way to do this is to place some ash in the palm of your hand and blow over the area.

FOR PROTECTION
You can keep yajna ash with your valuables or in any place you seek protection. To bring blessings and protection to your home, place some ash in a special container and put it above your doorway, this will give blessings and protect the house.

FOR UPLIFTING & PURIFYING THE ATMOSPHERE
Take a seat in the area you want to uplift and chant the Shiva Mahimnah Stotram while holding a little yajna ash in your right hand. Then distribute the ash in that location.
