Annual Agnihotra Sadas to be held
1-3 Aug 2014

With Blessings of His Holiness Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Shri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, the Annual Agnihotra Sadas will be held at Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam - Srimatam from 1 to 3 August 2014. A large number of Agnihotris from different parts of the country are expected to take part in the Sadas. The three day event is held every year during the Chaturmasya Vrata Anushtanam at the place of camp of Their Holinesses. The Sadas will be the 10th Annual Sadas.

Sri Adi Shankara Bhavadpadacharya in his advisory sloka “Sopana Panchakam” stated forty advises for up-lifting the humans and the first two primary advise there in is Vedo Nityamadeeyataam Taduditam KarmaSwanushteeyatam. This means a person should repeat the Vedas learnt by him regularly and also perform the Vedic injunctions specified in them as well. In today’s world, this upadesha of Sri Shankara is adhered to especially by the Agnihotries.

Their Holinesses of Kanchi strongly believe that the pursuit of performance of the Agnihotra and the associated Yagnas protect one and all and hence this Sadas is a very important activity that Srimatham is associated with Year after Year. Every day, the Sadas is comprised of two sessions - one in the morning and one in the evening, in the divine presence of the Acharyas. The sessions involve intense discussions on the understanding and interpretation of the details of the Vedic Injunction proceedings as stated in the texts called Sutras(methodologies) of various Rishis of the yore.

Last year, the Sadas was held at Shrimatam, Kanchipuram from 26 to 28 July 2013. The report is hosted at
