Sai Ram Dear National Presidents,
Please forward to all members:
The Ati Rudra Maha Yagna is a most powerful, sacred Vedic ceremony that is performed for the benefit of the entire planet and all of its inhabitants. During the first Ati Rudra Maha Yagna performed in Prasanthi Nilayam, Swami in his discourse on the 9th of August of 2006 explained:
“The Vedas are the gift of God for the welfare of the entire humanity. The Vedas make no distinction whatsoever on the basis of religion, caste, nationality, etc. The Vedic mantras can be chanted by one and all. It is Swami's wish that the Vedas be spread to every country, so that every human being, irrespective of religion, caste, nationality, etc., learns Vedas and chants them.”
“This Yajna is being conducted for the welfare of the world. There is a very important aspect of this Yajna. The Athi Rudra Maha Yajna protects and fosters the divine nature in the human beings, while rejecting and diminishing the demonic qualities. Thus, it works for the welfare of humanity. This Yajna can be undertaken by anyone interested in the welfare of humanity”
The Sacramento Sai Center, part of our SSSGC family, taking Swami's message to heart and placing it into action, with the help of numerous dedicated devotees from around the world, are conducting this most sacred event from April 10th – 16th, 2022. The timing could not be more auspicious as it is occurring during the holy month of Ramadan in Islam, the holy week containing Palm Sunday and Easter in Christianity, the holy holiday of Passover in Judaism, and the start of the holy Ugadi New Year of Subhakritu (excellent virtuous deeds)!
