Ashwamedha Yagam in city

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: A ritual that is termed by Vedic literature among the most powerful and beneficial yagams, the Ashwamedha Yagam, will be performed in the city from December 11 to 18.

The event, titled Vishwa Santhi Vishwa Kalyana Yagna, will have the founder of Aananda Ashram P.V. Sesha Sai taking responsibility as the `yaaga kartha'.

To be performed with the blessings of Sri Ganeshanada Bharthi Mahaswami and several other `peetadhipathis' and Mutt pontiffs, the Ashwamedha Yagam will be on the bright eleventh day of Margasira maasam, coupled with Sunday and the Revati star, which falls on December 11, 2005.

Contrary to popular perception, the said yaagam will have no animal sacrifice. Instead, it will be a "satvik" yagam where animals will be worshiped, according to the organisers.

Individuals and organisations interested in participating in the yagam and other related activities can contact P.C. Sesha Sai over phone numbers 27661613, 55581368 and 94404 22613 or email him at shodasisai@rediffmail.com, shodasisai@yahoo.com and shodasisai@hotmail.com.
