Agnihotra Sadas Held
22-24 July 2011

24 July 2011, Kanchipuram

Sri Adi Shankara Bhavadpadacharya in his advisory sloka Sopana Panchakam stated forty advises for up-lifting the humans and the first two primary advise there in is Vedo Nityamadeeyataam Taduditam KarmaSwanushteeyatam. This means a person should repeat the Vedas learnt by him regularly and also perform the Vedic injunctions specified in them as well. In todays world, this upadesha of Sri Shankara is adhered to especially by the Agnihotries.

With the grace of Their Holinesses Pujyasri Shankaracharya Swamijis of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam a Sadas (congregation) of Agnihotries from all over India was conducted at Srimatham, Kanchipuram for three days. Their Holinesses of Kanchi strongly believe that the pursuit of performance of the Agnihotra and the associated Yagnas protect one and all and hence this Sadas is a very important activity that Srimatham is associated with Year after Year. This Sadas is the 7th annual Sadas. Every day, the Sadas is comprised of two sessions - one in the morning and one in the evening, spanning over 2 hours each, in the divine presence of the Acharyas. The sessions involved intense discussions on the understanding and interpretation of the details of the Vedic Injunction proceedings as stated in the texts called Sutras(methodologies) of various Rishis of the yore.

On the concluding day , sambhavana was given to the Agnihotries who also received the bountiful blessings of Pujyasri Acharya Swamijis.
