YAGNAS AND YAAGAS (sacrificial rituals) PERFORMED  and practiced in the ancient Aarsha-Bhaarata for various reasons had been doubtlessly very effective. At this time of crucial CORONA -19 VIRUS   pandemic,   we should seriously think of performing such YAAGAS  &  YAGNAS to eradicate the dreadful disease. These Yagnas & Yaagas have been scientifically proven to bring environmental cleanliness through the fumes emanated from burning various medicinal Oils such as Ghee, Gingelly Oil, and herbs. I am humbly requesting all our Devaalayas (Temples) religious establishments like Sankarachaarya Peedams to advise their followers to conduct such Yagna and Yaagas aiming to bring a permanent solution to completely eradicate the killer virus from the earth.

Especially the great-great pilgrimage centers of Aarsha-Bhaaratam, such as Chidambaram Nataraja Temple, Kaashi Viswanaatha Temple, Tirupati Venkateswara Temple, Poori Jagannaatha temple, Guruvaayur Krishna temple, Sabari Ayyappa Temple, Padmanabha Temple  (to a name few)  may immediately start performing these Yaagas for the welfare of the world.


IN CONTINUATION of my suggestions on performing Agni Homa(fire sacrifice) Ygana & Yaaga, etc, the bell sounds emanating from the  Church bells and Aalayamani ( temple bells) are done to ward off evils or viruses. The Veda Shastra Puranas tell us the effect of Naada or vibrations of Oom kaara or Pranava mathram. The pooja mantras say “Kurve Ghantaravam Tathra Devataahwaanachanam ” (sounding of well-made bells brings auspiciousness or ward off all evil elements).
So it is earnestly suggested that all our temples and Churches ring their bells and gongs continuously for some time in the morning and evenings. This will certainly bring a good effect on the atmosphere and environments to eradicate the killer virus.
Please don’t treat this as superstition.
This is a humble prayer and request suggestions from a lover of world welfare and well-wisher of humanity at large.

  1. Spend the money to donate to the fees, midday meals, uniform etc of poor Hindu children & to Hindu old age homes instead of pouring ghee, Gingelly oil etc in the homa kunda for our own benefit when 400 million people are hungry in this country. Others will be taken care of by their missionaries. God will take care of us.
    Perform group prayers in temples for God to save Hindus all over the world from their innumerous enemies everywhere who are only waiting & watching like vultures to finish them. That is the need of the hour. Unite if you do not want to meet the fate of the Kashmiri pandits or the dalits of Mewat, Haryana. Pray for our progeny. Do not put money in the money boxes of the temples or buy archanas from the temple offices which will go to minorities to buy the temple land. Give the archakas money secretly outside the temple because the money given to them by the bhakthas are snatched away from them by the office bearers on the command of politicians. Spread awareness & save our posterity from annihilation, torture etc. Om Namah Shivaayah.
