Yagyas: Harness the Cleansing Power of Sacred Fire Ceremonies
Based in the ancient Vedic science of fire ceremonies, yagyas—or yagnas—offer healing on all levels of your being, activate success for your endeavors, and energize your intentions for what you want to achieve in an area of your life. These sacred ceremonies, specially activated by Sai Maa, offer the opportunity to move beyond limitations, so you can feel free to create a new reality anchored in the energies of vibrant living and abundance.
By its very nature, fire is purifying, cleansing, powerful. Yagyas can help clear unconscious energies that may be blocking you from creating transformation or success in specific areas of your life, such as your health, career, relationship, spiritual path, or finances. It’s a way to energetically impact your Karma, which means action in Sanskrit, and can transmute the residual impact of past actions we have taken in our current and past lifetimes, including our thoughts, emotions, and physical actions. This frees us up and allows us to more effortlessly create anew, unencumbered by the past.
Yagyas can also empower us in areas of life where we wish to grow. Often done during auspicious times of our lives—like birthdays, weddings, or when we’re launching a new business—yagyas have been practiced for thousands of years in India. Some of the most highly revered Vedic pundits (priests) perform the ceremonies, during which they chant mantras (sacred sounds) while making offerings into a fire located at Sai Maa’s Ashram, in the sacred city of Varanasi in India.
Awakened Life Yagyas
Sai Maa New Year’s Yagya

This yagya, specially designed by our Pundits (priests) in Varanasi for our global community, will take place over 6 hours with 11 Pundits.
The Hindu holiday of Navaratri is a time of dedicated sadhana (spiritual practice) and immersion into the sublime qualities of Mother Divine, honoring the power and grace of the Divine Feminine through Goddesses Durga/Kali, Lakshmi, and Saraswati. During the Navaratri Yagyas, Sai Maa will activate the power of Divine Feminine energy to initiate cleansing and healing on multiple levels. The yagya sets of Navaratri support us in removing obstacles and enhancing a vibrant life, receiving abundance, and remaining focused on our spiritual awakening and enlightenment. Sponsor a Navaratri Yagya for yourself or a loved one—or sponsor all three yagya sets.

Starting or expanding your own business is almost like a rebirth—it’s most certainly a time of great challenges and changes.

Opportunity to sponsor coming soon.
Yagya for the Deceased
One of the most powerful and important ways we can serve those who have left the body, a Yagya for the Deceased is sponsored on behalf of someone who has passed away in order to serve the evolution of that soul. Yagyas may be sponsored for those who have passed from natural causes or those who experienced a traumatic death, such as suicide or murder.
Mother’s Day or Father’s Day Yagyas
Perhaps no other relationship is more important in your life than the one you share with a parent. Sponsoring a yagya for your mother or father is the greatest gift you can give them, whether you want to uplift your relationship, honor their contribution to your life, or clear past grievances.
