DUE TO CUSTOMS RESTRICTIONS THIS ITEM CANNOT BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE OF U.S.A.

yajna is a sacred fire ceremony during which offerings are made of mantras and special materials such as clarified butter, fragrant wood, and perfumed oils. The purpose of all yajnas held in Siddha Yoga ashrams is to uplift humankind.

For each yajna, the offerings are made in honor of a chosen deity and with a specific sankalpa, intention. The ash that remains after the completion of the ceremony retains the blessings of that particular yajna. By keeping this sacred ash on your puja or applying it to your body in preparation for meditation, you invite the intention and blessings of that yajna to manifest in your life.


A limited number of yajna ash packets are available from fire ceremonies that were held in either Gurudev Siddha Peeth, the Siddha Yoga ashram in Ganeshpuri, India, or Shree Muktananda Ashram, the Siddha Yoga ashram in South Fallsburg, New York, USA.

Sacred ash is available from the following yajnas:
Shata Chandi Yajna—Gurudev Siddha Peeth, October 1993
Shri Gauri-Shankara Yajna—Shree Muktananda Ashram, October 1993

Shata Chandi Yajna
In the Shata Chandi Yajna, performed in Gurudev Siddha Peeth in October 1993 on the anniversary of Swami Muktananda’s mahasamadhi, the sankalpa, intention, was that by the grace of the goddess Chandi the six inner enemies (desire, anger, greed, delusion, pride, and jealousy) are destroyed. As it manifests through the yajna, the grace of Chandi, the goddess Shakti, supports our efforts to manifest the great virtues in our lives.

Shri Gauri-Shankara Yajna
In the Shri Gauri-Shankara Yajna, performed in Shree Muktananda Ashram for Swami Muktananda’s mahasamadhi anniversary in October 1993, the sankalpa, intention, was that everyone experience devotion, knowledge, and dispassion. The yajna offerings were made with a focus on the dissolution of the six inner enemies (desire, anger, greed, delusion, pride, and jealousy). The grace of Gauri-Shankara, as it manifests though the yajna, supports our efforts to manifest the great virtues in our lives.
