Maha Rudra Yagya

Om Sai Ram,


We are pleased to share the details about the Maha Rudra Yagya on the occasion of Shirdi Saibaba Centennial celebrations. As per earlier announcement, we wish to strengthen Guru Parampara Movement and the importance of Guru in one’s life.


Meaning and Significance of Yagya:


The word Yagya is derived from “yaj,” meaning divine worship in the form of fire sacrifices involving the use of various rituals. The objects of that worship are various Bhagawans (Gods) and divinities. From the ancient times, Yagyas are performed to commemorate important events and occasions.  Vedas suggest that life itself should be led as a sacrifice in which every action should be an offering. 


The purpose of yagya is to harness divine power to fulfill desires, overcome difficulties or achieve the four main goals of life, namely Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.  The mantras and hymns which are sung during the sacrifices are meant to appease the gods and help the worshippers to fulfill their desires and seek divine protection. It is the means by which human beings can ensure their wellbeing upon earth ensuring discharge of karmic debts.  


The essential purpose of any Yagya is the preservation of the world in a happy and peaceful state. Yagyas not only help gain higher spiritual state but also worldly objectives.


Keeping in mind the current crisis of the world, economic state of Canada and our own city Calgary, Sri Anagha Datta Society decided to perform Maha Rudra Yagya for the well-being and prosperity of all of us. This event is planned to align with Shirdi Saibaba Centennial celebrations.


This will be a massive event.  We cannot succeed without generous support and participation from community. 




  1. Ekadasi Hawans:  There will be 16 Hawans on Ekadsi days starting from the month August 2017 to October 2018.  Participants’ gotras will be recited by the priest on all of these 16 Ekadasi havans, regardless of their physical presence.  Exact dates are provided below. 


Donation:  $501 for couple for all 16 Hawans (willing participants can register as soon as they can to join from the first Hawan on August 2, 2017)


  1. 5 day Maha Rudra Yagya in July 2018.  This will include the Pratahkala puja, Rudra Ekadasi puja, Rudra-abhishekam, and Shiv Parvati Vivhah.


Donation:  $1001 for couple to participate in Maha Rudra Yagya (willing participants can register as soon as they can)


Event registration form is provided below


Everyone is welcome to attend this auspicious event, join on the occasion of the Shirdi Sai Baba 100th Maha Samadhi year and obtain blessings of the Guru. We will pray to recover from the challenges due to current economic situation faced by everyone.
All Calgary organizations are requested to support this event by sharing this information to all their devotees and encourage them to attend the event throughout next 16 months.


We are also looking for all Rudram chanters to join this occasion, and chant Rudram on every Ekadasi.
