Maharishi dedicated years to the careful and systematic revival of Yagya performances to restore this ancient technology to its full purity, power and effectiveness. He explained that the Yagya Pandits should perform their Vedic recitation from a settled level of awareness that is grounded in the silent transcendental value of speech. Only on this level is the link between sound and form—between the desire and the fulfillment of desire—intimately connected and enormously powerful.
To create this effect, it is essential that the Maharishi Yagya Pandits incorporate the practice of Yoga—the Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced techniques including Yogic Flying—to enliven the transcendental source of speech prior to their recitation and performance of a Yagya. Only Yagya Pandits trained by Maharishi have this crucial training and skill.
Maharishi’s restoration and revival also includes a far more comprehensive training of the Yagya Pandits in proper recitation and pronunciation of the Yagyas. This extensive training over many years was developed and instituted under Maharishi’s close personal guidance in collaboration with the most respected master Pandits from across India.
Planetary Maharishi Yagyas are also referred to as Graha Shanti. The word “Shanti” means peace or harmony. The word “Graha” is generally translated as Planet. However, a more accurate definition of Graha Shanti would be “Aligning our life to the forces of Nature that govern our progress and evolution.”
Another meaning of the word “Graha” is “that which grasps or seizes.” This is because the Planets are continually influencing us based on our past actions. A Maharishi Yagya performance helps release any negative hold of the Planets or Grahas, freeing us from the effect of potential dangers and allowing us to achieve greater success in life.
Modern science verifies the intimate connection between the Planets and our daily experience of life. Dr. Tony Nader (MD, PhD, MARR) has shown that the Planets are correlated with key components of our body and brain, our cells, and even our DNA, all of which structure our daily experience of life. On this basis, we can understand how the Planets can color our feelings, thinking, and activity in either a positive or negative way, day after day, year after year.

The Maharishi Vastu architecture program offers Fortune-Creating homes that promote good health, family harmony, peace and abundance. These positive effects can be further enhanced by a Royal Vastu Maharishi Yagya performance.
In the Vedic tradition, there is a formal ceremony performed on the occasion of entering a Maharishi Vastu house for the first time. Whether you have built a Maharishi Vastu home or purchased one from someone else, it’s recommended that you sponsor a Yagya for entering a new Vastu home, which promotes the most auspicious support of Natural Law for the new inhabitants.
In the past, the Yagya for entering a home was performed only at the auspicious time or Muhurta of the inauguration, and just for a few hours. The Royal Vastu Maharishi Yagya performance includes a larger number of Pandits, who perform the Yagya over several days or longer.
This Yagya is unique because it brings maximum support of Nature over a long period of time. The performance is done in a secluded environment with the least disturbance from outside. The Vedic Pandits are completely dedicated to focus only on this one Yagya in order to generate the most powerful results and maximum fortune for the owner of the home.
