There will be two kinds of प्रयोजनम् for this (or any other such) याग -
दृष्टम् and अदृष्टम् ।
There were heavy rains on three days during and after the याग ।
It was a काकतालीयम् / coincidence --
the temperature had come down from 43 C to 17C within 2 hours on 7th day
and the जन्झावात brought down a large portion of महावेदि - on one or
two channels there was the discussion in progress between साम्प्रदायिक s
and हेतुवादि s .
Again there was thunderstorm on 10th day and the 13th (within 15hours of
As was predicted गरुड s (vultures) made प्रदक्षिणम् , on and around
यागशाला and it was beamed live by many channels .
The people thronged and enjoyed the य़ाग because the Andhra Pradesh Govt
spent many millions of bugs for Cloud Seeding , which did not yield any
result even once .
The य़ाग would have its effect on crops , atmosphere , on the minds of
people and universal शान्ति ।
The याग is meant for universe and not for the State etc. .
There is nothing wrong in trying to have a so called Scientific Study but
you may note the following --
responding to a question - how Veda is प्रमाणम् ? - अक्षपाद , the author of
न्यायदर्शनम् - offers this सूत्रम् (2-1-68) --
मन्त्रायुर्वेदप्रामाण्यवच्च तत्प्रामाण्यम् (go thru the Bhasyam and
Prasannapadaa , ग्रामकामो यजेत etc is discussed)
During ancient times (even today it is there in some places across India )
मन्त्राः were being employed as antidotes , i.e. against the poisons of
The other one is आयुर्वेद - take up just one solution to deformed limbs ,
offered by Susruta and being followed by Surgeons across the globe -
Plastic Surgery .
Aksapada asks - when you accept Ayurveda as authoritative then why not
Veda , which is also offered by
ऋषयः who are मन्त्रद्रष्टारः ?
In this context I add a similar thing - Patanjali's योगानुशासनम् is being
followed by billions of people across the Globe and they are not blind .
How come these Scientists could / can not compile a matching work ? Where
is the Science ?
Today the Science , including Medical , became more destructive rather than
Let us not discuss the false Economy , especially in Europe and Western
During the याग some TV channels asked me to prepare for चर्चा with
हेतुवादिन्s - okay , चर्चा , विवाहः and युद्धम् can be with equally
qualified . Unless they study वेदाः , वेदाङ्गाः, दर्शनानि and without
considerable command upon संस्कृतम्, what do they discuss ?
I also asked their policy on आयुर्वेद and योग ।
If everything can be decided on प्रत्यक्षम् how come the Scientists have
not been able to stop aging and death till today ?
There were some Scientists who did some experiments , for example - what
kind of effect will be there on seeds / saplings etc. . The results may
take some more time to see .
In Panjal , Kerala(2011 April) also it was proved by Scientists that
pesticides / insecticides etc can be replaced by यागधूम ।
It means you are controlled and cannot control !
The result will be of two types - दृष्टम् and अदृष्टम् ।
The result for the यजमान will be अदृष्टम् - cannot be seen now and here .
Please go thru any श्रौतसूत्रम् - सत्याषाढस्य / कात्यायनस्य / बौधायनस्य ...
you will have answers to some questions .
Please do not trust so called scholars like Max Muller , who are cheats and
Believe in ऋषि s who are ascetic .
I cannot advise anybody to approach any बाबा / स्वामी etc. , . They do
not sit down with Gurus and learn Veda etc. but try to eke out their
livelihood thru unfair means .
If one is really serious about such an investigation then he should become
a योगी and things can be perceived thru योगिप्रत्यक्षम् |
