Agnihotra Sadas Held at Shrimatham
13-15 July 2012 

16 July 2012, Kanchipuram 

Sri Adi Shankara Bhavadpadacharya in his advisory sloka “Sopana Panchakam” stated forty advises for up-lifting the humans and the first two primary advises there in are 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.

With the grace of Their Holinesses Pujyasri Shankaracharya Swamijis of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam a Sadas (congregation) of Agnihotries from all over India was conducted at Srimatham, Kanchipuram for three days. 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. This Sadas is the 8th annual Sadas. Every day, the Sadas is comprised of two sessions - one in the morning and one in the evening, spanning over 2 hours each, in the divine presence of the Acharyas. The sessions involved 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.

On the concluding day, the Agnihotries received Sambhavana and blessings of Pujyasri Acharya Swamijis.
