Maharishi revived and restored a Vedic technology for peace—available for the first time in thousands of years—the Maharishi Yagya program. We can take advantage of Maharishi Yagya performances to improve our own destiny, and help create a world of harmony and peace.

Interview with Leslie Frieder, Maharishi Jyotish Services Administrator for the USA Western Region.

People everywhere often wish that there was something they could do to reduce fear and hostility in the world. Maharishi emphasized that to remove darkness we must first bring in the light.

Maharishi revived and restored a Vedic technology for peace—available for the first time in thousands of years—the Maharishi Yagya program. We can take advantage of Maharishi Yagya performances to improve our own destiny, and help create a world of harmony and peace.

How does the Maharishi Yagya program create an influence of peace?

The Maharishi Yagya program creates “Graha Shanti”—a more peaceful relationship with the Grahas or planets, which are the universal Laws of Nature that deliver the results of our past actions. Graha Shanti Yagyas bring individual life in tune with Natural Law.

They reduce the influence of negativity that is returning to us from the planets, helping undo the mistakes of the past. And they maximize a planet’s positive influence and improve our destiny. Fear and tension can be transformed into more peaceful and productive tendencies. Enemies can become friends.

During a Graha Shanti Yagya, the Maharishi Yagya Pandits recite Vedic sounds—the vibrations which structure the universe—to awaken specific qualities of Natural Law that are capable of materializing our desires.

Every Maharishi Yagya performance operates from the all-powerful, silent level of unity at the basis of all creation, which is an eternal state of peace and invincibility. Graha Shanti Yagya performances stir cosmic intelligence, the Unified Field of Natural Law, to create a specific effect, such as an influence of peace and happiness.

So, one individual can actually make an important contribution to world peace?

Yes. By improving our individual destiny with Maharishi Yagya performances, we inevitably change the destiny of our family, nation, and the entire world.

For example, if an individual is experiencing tension, this creates tension for their whole family. Preventing that tension will create a more peaceful and harmonious life for the individual, and for those near to them as well.

In addition, the same planetary influences which govern our own life administer the destiny of the entire world. By enlivening these Laws of Nature regularly with Maharishi Yagya performances, we also contribute a peaceful, evolutionary influence for collective consciousness.

What is the difference between Maharishi Yagya performances for individuals and the large Maharishi Yagya performances for world peace?

Yagyas for both individuals and society are important, it’s just a difference in scale. First of all, every individual should take care of their own destiny through Maharishi Yagya performances. But in addition, to change the destiny of the entire world and create permanent peace, very large Maharishi Yagya performances are required.

When tension in a society is high, it’s like a field of dry grass—the tiniest spark can ignite the whole field instantly. Yagyas for World Peace are like gentle rain that restores the green grass, which is resistant to flames.

When we sponsor a Graha Shanti Yagya we are not only helping ourselves, we are supporting the creation of large groups of Maharishi Vedic Pandits whose sole focus is on creating and maintaining peace in the world.

How can Maharishi Yagya performances protect us from negativity and danger?

Prevention is always the best protection, helping us avert the danger that has not yet come. It’s important to make sure that the planetary influences coming to you are as positive and peaceful as possible, and that they nourish and support your life. Planetary influences change with the cycles of time. The influence can be short or long, hidden or obvious, sudden or slowly developing.

The planets continually affect you, like a stream of water flowing through a pipeline. Maharishi Yagya performances act like water filters to purify that influence. If the water is quite polluted, you will need to change the filter more frequently. If you want an especially high quality of water, you must use a stronger filter.

That’s why Maharishi Jyotish Pandits recommend Graha Shanti Yagyas at least once a year for every planet that is currently having a strong influence on your life. In most cases this will remove the sharp edge of danger, so that there is no lasting effect on your life. But if some greater danger or stronger negativity is predicted, then more Yagyas should be done, including special performances for specific problems.

Those who desire an exceptional quality of life should sponsor Maharishi Yagya performances at least quarterly, or even monthly. However, even one Graha Shanti Yagya can begin to fulfill your desire for a more secure and peaceful life, and at the same time help contribute to peace on earth.
