Yajna (Sanksrit :संस्कृत Yajna; also anglicized as Yagya, Yagna or Anushthan) is actually a fire ritual, performed to attain a number of wishes. Yajna is often also called ‘Homa or Havana’, however, these are totally different rituals.
Yajnas — the sacrificial rituals were instrumental to establish the human-divine link. Different offerings are made in sacred fire along with chants of Vedic hymns for the attainment of divine favours such as good crop, cattle, good weather, progeny, good health, happiness of any kind, etc.

It is a great joy to write to you about how my health has improved dramatically since you started the yagnyas!




My heartfelt gratitude to the VedicYagya Center. My husband’s first surgery was very rough, so I ordered Daily Rudrabhishekam Yagyas for him. During the second surgery, you held three days of Ganapathy Tarpanam yagyas for him. This surgery went much better. He is now home and recuperating well. I trust he will continue recovering well, thanks to the yagyas.

I am very pleased with the results and I thank you very much. In fact, my nephew, this baby a few days is still hospitalized because of an alarming drop of his blood platelets. Today, these platelets have doubled in quantity without any medication. Punditji thank you, Thank Punditji, Thank Punditji and JAI GURU DEV


Dear Pt. Samavedula, I had some yagyas done by your organization this past January. You gave me a wonderful mantra at that time that I have been using ever since. It is ” On hreem zoom Saha”. (I think that is the correct spelling.) Does this mantra have a translation into English, or is it done simply for the sound value? I am eager to know this

What is a Homa/Yagya, and How do they work?

A Homa/Yagya is a Vedic ritual performed to enliven the Natural Law for a specific desired effect. A Yagya is a Sacred Vedic elaborate ritual with a specific intended result, which is performed in a precise manner and at a specific time as prescribed in the Sacred Vedic Scriptures. These rituals can only be performed by trained Vedic priests/pundits. The knowledge and procedures of performing Yagyas were passed down by ancient Maha Rishis and Saints to their disciples, and this Divine knowledge was further passed down to us from generation to generation. Yagyas were a regular part of the individual and community life in ancient Vedic civilization.

As spiritual beings living in the human experience, we can choose to rely exclusively on our worldly resources, or we can petition the aid of our allies in the divine realms. By contacting the celestial field of life through the Yagya, the Vedic priest appeals to Deities for their intervention, seeks their help through this Divine energy, and asks for grace on behalf of the person requesting the Yagya to yield the desired effects. With the support of the Divine, and with the support of nature, one is able to easily achieve desired results, such as improved health, prosperity, spiritual enlightenment, and so on.

The response from the Divine is mysterious by its very nature, but it is not magical. Results are sometimes dramatic, as seen in people who suffer from terrible diseases. However, the Yagya/Homa itself does not take away the disease—it helps to clear away karmic obstacles so that the doctor’s treatments can be effective. For example, Yagya/Homa remedies work like an umbrella in the rain. If rain is destined to come, no one can change it. However, just like an umbrella is used to protect your body from the rain, Yagyas help in reducing the effect of negative Karma by reducing the intensity of any disasters that life brings to a bearable level, thus saving one who performs the Yagya/Homa.

So, we don’t claim that we can change every condition. We do all that we can so that the infusion of Divine intervention can help to make life smoother, easier, and more positive. These Vedic rituals work like, as one may say, an insurance policy for an individual, family or businesses and can even be done for the benefit of the world like global welfare, peace & tranquility.

Just like pouring water at the roots of the tree will help it to blossom and produce beautiful flowers and fruit, offering prayers and offerings to the God of Fire during Yagyas/Homas can help achieve the desired result. Do sagittarius and aquarius make a good match. However, the results may vary depending on the person’s personal ‘Negative or Positive Karmic level’, their faith, dedication, and many other factors. Like it is said in the Shastras – depending on the karmas of the previous birth, one will endure difficulties in life such as diseases, financial troubles, disappointments etc. These can be reduced in intensity or neutralized through the methods of treatments, charity, performance of Japa, Homa/Yagyas, or other such good deeds. The same concept has been quoted from the sacred scriptures below –

“पूर्व जन्म कृतम् पापं व्याधिरूपेण बाधते । तच्छांतिः औषधैः दानैः जप होम क्रियादिभिः ॥“
“Poorva Janma kritam papam vyadhi roopena badhatey I Tat shanthihi aushadaihi danaihi japa homa kriyadibhihi II”

How can one save him/herself from severe difficulties? How to find out when one needs help?

Well, there is a saying in Sanskrit – “हेयम् दुःखमनागतम् “
“Heyum dukham anagatham II” “avert the danger that has not yet come.”

Astrology is the Divine Shastra (Divine Subject) that has evolved from Sacred Vedic Texts for the purpose of predicting the future. This Astrological science is based on the date of birth, time of birth, and place of birth, and is connected directly to one’s natal chart and moon constellations. Using this information, along with some Astrological calculations, an astrological expert can predict the future of a person depending on the planet’s movements in his/her natal chart. Astrological Science in Sanskrit is known as ‘Jyotishya Vidya’ – ‘Jyoti’ means light, and ‘Isya’ means ‘Ishwara,’ or ‘Lord.’ Together, it means ‘The light that leads towards the Lord’. Light by the means of peace, happiness and contentment leads one to the Lord through self-realization in life. So, with the help of Astrology, one can avert danger before it arrives with the help of Homas/Yagyas.

Purpose of a Yagya/Homa
The purpose of a Yagya/Homa is to create life-supporting effects using the laws of nature and to help amend or avoid any unwanted tendency before it manifests. They help to eliminate or reduce negativity in life, while at the same time bringing additional support for maximum success and fulfillment. By counteracting past negative karma (which is the result of actions we have taken in the past), the Yagyas help in creating positive karma for the future. Therefore, one can say that Homas/Yagyas are the most reliable and proven remedial measures through which one can avert any possible danger or reduce negativity in life.

Yagyas provide remedies to help resolve problems in various spheres of life. They are designed to solve specific health problems, financial problems, relationship problems, to balance a difficult Astrological/Jyotish period, to encourage a good event to occur, for protection, to gain support for the fulfillment of a specific personal or business-related desire, or to enhance evolution and spiritual growth. Depending on the nature of the difficulties that could exist in nature, the Vedas have prescribed many kinds of Homas/Yagyas to tackle almost all kinds of situations. Sometimes, just like in medical science, one must do a combination of multiple things to deal with the situation and yield desired effects. This is the same with Homas/Yagyas, in that sometimes, multiple of these rituals need to be performed to get the best results. This, as mentioned before, depends on various factors like the nature of the problem, the time, and the intensity of the situation. These must also be conducted only by a well-qualified person who has thorough knowledge and experience in these matters.

If you need more information on Yagyas details, please contact Pundit C. S. Samavedula through his email: [email protected]

How to proceed with yagya services?
Apart from the prescribed Yagyas, we also offer customized Yagyas. Good day and time are very important to perform any Yagya. After ordering the Yagya, you will be contacted via telephone or email. Some of the vital information like date of birth, time of birth, place of birth, and gotra will be collected. The Yagya will be performed on the day you have selected.
The Importance of Yagyas/Vedic Remedies and its Origin
A Yagya is a Vedic process (prescribed by the Sacred Vedic Texts and practiced by Saints and Sages over a long period of time with proven positive results) for the benefit of humanity through bringing them into harmony with all the forces of nature by using the Cosmic Power of the Five Natural elements, Nature’s support, Divine intervention, and blessings. Yagyas/Homas enliven natural law for a specific desired effect.

Yagyas originated and evolved from the Vedas. The Vedas (Sanskrit वेद véda, “knowledge”) are a large body of sacred texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vydic Sanskrit (the world’s most ancient language), these texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism forming the culture’s very soul and essence. Vedas are the living and never-ending proof of the Sanathana Dharma.

Vedas are known in Sanskrit as ‘Apoorusheyyam’ – meaning that which were not written or composed by any ‘Purusha’ (means any man or mankind). It is of Divine Origin, Eternal Truth and hence their origin is impossible to trace as they existed even before the origin of mankind. Vedas have been directly revealed by God Himself to mankind, and thus are called śruti (“what is heard”) and were heard by the Rishis when they were in their deep Yoga / Tapas or Samadhi in a specific ‘Swaram’ or certain special Tone (Sound with specific defined wavelength rhythm).

These were then passed on by these Rishis to their Disciples in the exact way as they were heard. The Most Sacred Vedas have been passed on traditionally for innumerable generations from the time unknown.

How do Yagyas influence us?
Yes, Yagyas can and will have an influence on one and all. It is a specific Vedic Science where Vedic Scientific Technology is applied to attain certain positive results using the support of nature, Vedic Wisdom, and different branches of Vedic texts such as Vedas, Astrology, Mantras, etc.
What are the different Vedic Yagya Remedy Processes?
There are many forms of Vedic processes like Pooja, Homa, Japa, Tarpana, Dana, and Yagya (and more that are less known to the public). Commonly, the people in the west know all these different processes by the name of ‘Yagya’ only. But there are differences between them all

This is a much simpler form used for daily practice for all. In this form of ceremonial worship, Lord is worshipped by 16 forms of ‘Upacharas’ to the Deities. This could range from a simple and short daily rite in common households to an elaborate one such as in established Temples.

Homa (also known as Homam or Havan) is a ritual in which offerings are made into a consecrated fire. This is a Fire Ceremony done on a smaller scale.

Japa is a Vedic process involving the meditative repetition of a mantra or the name of God for a certain number of times as a regular practice. The time period for doing a Japa could vary from a short brief one to a very long time. This will enhance the spiritual strength of the doer.

Tarpanam is the recitation of the related mantra done to the relevant Deity, leaving some rice grains with some sacred water in front of the picture or statue form of the related Deity in a plate. This water is left in a river or near any plant or tree. This will then merge into the environment and blend with the level of consciousness, thus gaining the support of nature for the Sankalpa and helps in achieving the desired target.

Dana (giving a specific offering)
This step of the process comes at the end of Yagya remedies to unfold and transmit the Yagya’s energy to the sponsor in the form of giving a specific offering to a specific deity, or a specific planet.

This is a very powerful one and has many different forms of offerings that are made to the Sacred fire accompanied with many sacred chantings, simultaneously. There are many kinds of Yagyas. This can be done only with the help a Vedic Pandit, one who has been specifically trained for performing these Yagyas. These Yagyas can fulfill a particular desire or eliminate any upcoming problems in one’s life. This is a very Saatvik and divine way of remedy to help one with worldly problems.

In the practice of astrology, there are two main types: Western, also known as tropical astrology, and Vedic, also known as sidereal astrology. This article explores the main differences between the two traditions.

Calculating the Positions of the Planets and Stars

The Sidereal Method

Although Western astrology traces its roots to the cultures of Ancient Egypt and Greece, the practice of astrology was going on in India long before these civilizations came into being.

Traditionally, Indian astrologers calculated planetary positions based on the fixed locations of the stars in the sky. In the same way that the pole star has always been used to determine true North, various constellations were used to measure the movement of the planets along the ecliptic.

However, due to the precession of the equinoxes, Indian astrologers adjusted their calculations to keep in sync with the stellar positions. Thus, their system is known as sidereal, or star-based.

The Tropical Method

Around 285 B.C, the Greek astronomer Ptolemy introduced a simplified method of calculating the movements of the planets. He noticed that each planet moved in a fixed rate relative to the Sun. By noting the precise times of the fall and spring equinoxes, and the winter and summer solstices, Ptolemy was able to derive the positions of all the other planets.

In this way, Ptolemy conceived what is now known in Western astrology as the tropical method, or judging planetary positions based on the Sun’s movement from the equator to each of the tropics.

At the time, it so happened that in India, there was a perfect alignment between the Sidereal and Tropical methods. Nowadays, however, the corrective adjustment used in Sidereal astrology is about -24 degrees, or almost an entire sign of the zodiac.

Another major difference between Vedic and Western astrology is which planets and stars are included in a horoscope. Here’s a list showing what is commonly considered in each of the two systems:

  • The Sun
  • The Moon
  • Mars
  • Mercury
  • Jupiter
  • Venus
  • Saturn
  • Rahu
  • Ketu
  • 27 different Nakshatras, or Lunar Mansions
  • The Sun
  • The Moon
  • Mars
  • Mercury
  • Jupiter
  • Venus
  • Saturn
  • Uranus
  • Neptune
  • Pluto
  • Asteroids such as Ceres, Juno, and Vesta, and the comet Chiron

Notice that the list starts to diverge after the planet Saturn. The Nakshatras, for instance, are a unique feature of Vedic astrology. These are the “lunar mansions,” or specific sets of stars that the moon passes through in its orbit around the earth. Each one is said to possess a different personality, as well as different strengths and weaknesses, much like the individual zodiac signs themselves.

In addition, Vedic astrologers track the movement of “shadow planets” Rahu and Ketu, which are believed to cause eclipses.

In Western astrology, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are used in place of Rahu and Ketu to signify such qualities as obsession, rebellion, and chaos.

Both Western and Vedic astrology split a chart into twelve houses, with the first house located on the eastern horizon. However, beyond this point, the traditions each take their own approach. In this section, we’ll look at two aspects of the houses: measurement, and planetary lordship.

How the Houses are Measured

In Vedic astrology, each house is assigned an equal 30°. Generally, Vedic astrologers use what is known as the Whole Sign method of determining houses. This means that if Cancer is the predominating sign in the third house, then a planet that falls anywhere within Cancer’s thirty degree range will be considered a tenant of the third house.

By contrast, in Western astrology, there are several competing ways of measuring out the twelve houses, and they may not all be given an equal number of degrees. Some astrologers follow the Vedic method of equal division, while others adjust the size of the houses based on various factors, such as latitude and the number of daylight hours.

Which Planets Rule Each House

Here is a breakdown of which planets rule each sign according to both systems:

The Moon
The Sun

The Moon
The Sun

Note that in the Western system, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Pisces are assigned to Pluto, Uranus, and Neptune respectively, whereas in the Vedic system, these planets aren’t included at all.

Another significant difference between Western and Vedic astrology is in how each offers predictions of a person’s future life. First we’ll take a look at the core philosophical differences which undergird each system, and then at the methods of predictions themselves.

Different Philosophies

For most practitioners of astrology in the western world, Vedic astrology is viewed as a rather harsh system. Traditional Vedic astrological texts often list terrible outcomes for specific planetary positions and combinations, and a person unfamiliar with the system might be understandably put off.

For example, the textbook outcome of a somewhat common planetary combination known as Daridra Yoga is that the person will “contact huge debts, will be very poor, will suffer from auditory troubles, and will commit sinful and criminal deeds.” (see B.V. Raman’s book, 300 Important Combinations)

However, a skilled astrologer does not take one single piece of information alone, but is instead very careful to analyze the chart as a whole in order to see the overall tendencies of the person.

Vedic culture in general takes what could be termed a “realist” approach to human life — the Vedas do not encourage blind optimism. It is considered far better to have a sober assessment of one’s risks and weaknesses than to naively pretend such things simply aren’t there.

Western astrology, on the other hand, prefers to focus on positive messages and outcomes, emphasizing a person’s strengths, rather than shining light on their weaknesses. Unlike Vedic astrology, which classifies both planets and houses as either “malefic” or “benefic,” Western astrologers prefer to take a neutral view.

Methods of Prediction

In Western astrology, personal predictions rely primarily on what are known as planetary transits. A transit refers to when a given planet passes through a specific sign. In a person’s horoscope, each house is occupied by a single sign. When a planet crosses into that sign, then it will exert greater influence on that house.

In Vedic astrology, predictions follow what is known as the vimshottari dasha system. This system divides a person’s life into nine planetary periods based on their birth nakshatra. For example, if a person is born under Hasta nakshatra, then they would begin life in their Moon period, because Hasta is ruled by the moon. The dasha periods always follow a specific order, and each period lasts a set number of years:

  • The Sun (6 years)
  • The Moon (10 years)
  • Mars (7 years)
  • Rahu (18 years)
  • Jupiter (16 years)
  • Saturn (19 years)
  • Mercury (17 years)
  • Ketu (7 years)
  • Venus (20 years)

Vedic astrologers analyze the positions of each planet in the birth chart in order to determine what major life events are likely to take place during a specific planetary period.

In addition to the major distinctions between Vedic and Western astrology covered above, here are a few more differences which play a significant role in interpreting an astrological chart:


A planetary aspect occurs when one planet is directly across from another planet in the chart (180°). They can also occur when planets are a set angle from one another, such as 60°, 90°, or 120°.

In Western astrology, aspects are measured based only on degrees. For instance, if Jupiter is 15° into Leo, and Venus is 16° into Scorpio, then it would be considered a strong aspect.

In Vedic astrology, aspects are measured by the entire house. It doesn’t matter how many degrees a planet has traveled through the sign. For example, if Saturn is in the first house, and Mercury is in the third house, then Saturn would aspect Mercury. In addition, Vedic astrologers only consider certain aspects, depending on the planet. The following table shows the houses over which each planet has full and partial aspects:

In Vedic astrology, an important element of judging the strength of a chart and the overall quality of a person’s life are planetary combinations, known in Sanskrit as yogas. These are special combinations are believed to produce positive or negative results in a person’s life. Some yogas indicate material happiness, others foretell spiritual growth, while some warn of obstacles that may impact different spheres of life.

Western astrology does not incorporate this feature of Vedic astrology.

Directional Strength

Another element of Vedic astrology that doesn’t appear in the Western practice is what is known as directional strength. Each planet performs at its best on a certain side of the chart. Below you can see the table of where each planet is at its strongest:

This is up to you! Different people prefer Vedic or Western astrology for different reasons, and the debate over which one is “correct” is unlikely to be conclusively resolved anytime soon.

On our website, we provide astrological information based on the Vedic approach, as we find it to be more accurate, more in-depth, and more consistent across practitioners. This is because the tradition of Vedic astrology has remained intact for thousands of years, whereas Western astrology only regained popularity in the early 20th century.
