SYSTEMS OF VEDIC KNOWLEDGE

Yajnas, Pujas and Temples

Vedic Yajnas or sacrifices were not mere primitive rituals but sophisticated and scientific ways of harnessing the secret powers of nature to affect changes in our karma, both individually and collectively. These yajnas center on fire rituals and fire offerings. Fire is the elemental force through which we can connect with all the powers of nature. As the central of the five elements it mediates between the formless spiritual realms above (air and ether) and the formed material realms below (earth and water).

Hindu devotional rituals or pujas are precise practices to connect us with the higher worlds of intelligence, joy and creativity that oversee this lower, limited physical realm. Pujas generate subtle influences (tanmatras) that link us with the deities or cosmic powers.
