Ramnathi (Goa) – On the advice of Maharshi Bhrugu on May 5, 2019 a Saura yag was performed in Sanatan’s ashram. Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil and Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal, the spiritual successors of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale blessed with the grace of ‘Shri Satyanarayan’, made a resolve at the venue of the Saura yag to grant Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale a long and healthy life, to remove obstacles in establishing a Hindu nation, to alleviate the physical, mental and spiritual distress of seekers and devout Hindus and to grant them a long life. The series of yadnyas commenced on October 21, 2019 on the advice of Maharshi Bhrugu was completed on May 5, 2019.

After a resolve was made for Saura yag the Saurasukta in which the Sun Deity is praised and Its missions are narrated, was recited. Sacrificial firewood (samidha), ghee and boiled rice (charu) were offered as oblations in the yadnya. Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil performed ritualistic worship of the masters of the eight directions (dikpal) viz. Indra, Agni, Yama, Nirutti, Varun, Vayu, Som and Ishan. The fire sacrifice culminated with the final oblation (purnahuti). Priest seeker from Sanatan Mr. Siddhesh Karandikar hosted the yag along with Mr. Damodar Vazhe Guruji.


Shri Suryanarayan – controller of life on the earth

In the Navagraha (nine planets) the Sun Deity is the chief Deity. Just as Shrivishnu controls the universe so also the Sun Deity controls the earth. Hence He is referred to as Suryanarayan. The Saura yag is worship of Shri Suryanarayan. This fire sacrifice is performed to prolong life by overcoming physical disorders of breathing, eyes and heart, to lead a healthy life and to receive grace of Suryanarayan.
