Vedic Temple conducts Mega Prayers for
Peace & Harmony
Once again as in all previous years, the sky over Atlanta Vedic
Temple echoed with Vedic Mantras for peace and the environment
filled with the healthy herbal molecules for purification on
AtharVeda-MahaYajnya day of April 29.
The enthusiastic 300+ crowd assembled around 51 Hawan-kunds for
mega-scale worship, was proficiently guided by Vedic scholars
and the dedicated volunteers. They prayed for guidance, energy
and inspiration so that henceforward may their body, mind and
senses always work for peace, harmony and joy in their family,
society, nation and the whole world.
The prayers were followed by the Ground-Breaking ceremony for
the new Yog-Meditation Center & Vaanprasth Aashram at Vedic
Temple premises. All past presidents of Vedic Temple and members
of Board of Trustees led the Ground-Breaking Hawan.
After the mega-scale Hawan, Dr. Hariprasad – a renowned Vedic
scholar explained that we are all Arujna (hesitants) of Gita and
the only way to achieve true success is the performance of
Yajnya in life.
After a short prasad break, the youths of the temple (Arya Veer
Dal) awed the audience with their recitation and explanation of
selected Vedic Mantras plus singing of Bhajans.
The Chief Guest- Hon. Consul General Ajit Kumar thanked the
devotees of the temple for propagating Vedic Dharma and culture
in the west.
Finally came, for the waiting audience, the electrifying
discourse by internationally famous Vedic speaker Dr. Devbala,
radiated out that the Vedic civilization in one word is Yajnya and for true Peace and Joy, one need to practice the
following ten-vital disciplines: 1) Purify self; 2) Love God
within; 3) Love humanity; 4) Serve society; 5) Be content; 6)
Respect and Serve elders; 7) Be devoted to Vedic Sanatan Dharma;
8) Worship one God; 9) Observe only good qualities; 10) Think &
act for the wellbeing of others.
At the end, after enjoying the sumptuous food (courtesy of
devotees from Aashiana Restaurant), the now brightly enlightened
crowd, left with a prayerful heart wishing that may they always
be on Vedic path of humanity and worship.
