Derived originally from yajdhatu, the word Yadnya means offering worship. It is interesting to note that the first word of the Rigveda is “Agni”.

It is difficult to create an image of God’s consciousness. The Vedas consider this God’s energy, knowledge and light. According to the Vedas, God is an enlightened energy that is present in the atoms and molecules of creation.

All living and non-living creation emerge from God’s energy. This is why the Vedas have given godship to nature in panchamahabhuta form. 

Two main sources of energy in nature are the sun in the sky and fire on the earth. This is the reason they are considered a reflection of God. The rhythmic cycle of nature is controlled through these two sources.

Yadnya is closely related to nature and life, so burning masandi in the sacrificial fire creates an attitude of negativity and destruction, and burning natural herbs, etc creates positivity, happiness, harmony and sanctity.

 In 1969, after thousands of years, Paramsadguru Shri Gajanan Maharaj once again revived the tradition of Shuddhikar Yadnya by organising the pure Vedic Mahasomayaga at Shivpuri, Akkalkot.
