“Brahman is all: the act of offering, the offerer, and the fire."—Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 4 verse 12

In India, a Yagya is (also spelled Yajna) is an ancient Vedic fire ceremony that is very potent prayer infused with the ancient vibration of Vedic chants composed by the ancients Rishis. Yagyas came into existence from Vedic seers (or Rishi's) who lived according to the ancient Vedic principles of silence and meditation. It was through their deep silence that they could actually "see" the nature of karma and how it affects the individual and what actions could help burn away this karma as well as support a deeper understanding of their karmic lessons.

Five Vedic priests will conduct this ceremony, while chanting the Vedic hymns composed by the Rishis in ancient India. Due to depth and complexity of these mantras, it can take an entire lifetime to learn them and it is not uncommon for children begin preparing to become a priest at the age of ten or even younger. This Yagya will be performed not far from the convergence of the Kosi and Ganga rivers in the Uttar Pradesh area of India.

The purpose of this Yagya is to offer the powerful vibration of this ancient Vedic ceremony as the deepest support for ending extreme poverty in India as well as offering prayers for the people of Bihar India and all the charitable programs created by Sri Amma Karunamayi (Please see inset video created by Kosi called The Awakening). This is a high ceremony that also offers prayers and blessings for Sri Bhagavan Ramana Marharshi and Sri Amma Karunamayi.

Kosi also views this Yagya as a celebration of the mysterious appearance of Sri Amma Karunamayi in her life, while honoring the significant role that Gangaji had played in her awakening before the appearance of this world renowned Saint and Avatar. The omniscience of Sri Amma Karunamayi combined with the purity and Grace of Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi—the unending presence of the Living Truth of the Heart—is constant support for the satsangs Kosi is offering throughout world.

The vibration of the ancient mantras used in this Yagya act like a laser sword to cut away or remove any obstacles for those who choose to participate in this prayer. Kosi invites everyone who feels called to participate in this Yagya to simply light a candle and meditate for a few minutes at any time during the day on either October 30th or October 31, 2012 depending on where you live.

Kosi recognized the miraculous power of the Yagya and views this ceremony as an opportunity to turn our awareness to the infinite Peace of the Heart as a Great Beacon of Light for the Great Awakening that is occurring around the world.

"This Yagya represents an opportunity to offer our prayers in support of ending extreme poverty in India and around the world. When we turn the our limited minds to the infinite realm of the Heart in Prayer—Miracles Happen." —Kosi
