Surya Yagya starts on Sunday but it may end on some other day in accordance with the time required by the pundits to complete the enchantment of Surya Vedic Mantras. Procedure in Surya shanti Yagya is called Surya Yagya Vidhi that will be discussed in the article.
The most significant step in whole Yagya is the enchantment of the whole jaap that may go as high as 7,000 in count. All the other procedure in Surya Shanti Yagya Vidhi is based around these chants. Pundits generally take 1 Day to complete the Yagya. To begin any Yagya “a Sankalpam” or “resolution” is taken by head Pundit on behalf of other assistant pundits. In this Sankalpam it is mentioned that they are performing Surya Yagya on behalf of the native (his name), his father’s name, Gotra, name of assistant pundits, time duration for the completion of Yagya is proposed and it is mentioned that they shall perform enchantment of 7,000 Surya Vedic mantra in order to pacify the malefic sun or avail benefits from the already benefic sun and for the native to be blessed on the successful completion of Yagya. Additional requests and wishes made by the natives are also mentioned in this step.
After the Sankalpam, all the Pundits keep on chanting Surya Vedic mantra. When the Yagya is completed, all the Vedic Mantra’s being enchanted, a completion ceremony is organized in which deities, and members of lord Shiva family are worshipped with many offerings like flowers, fruits, sweets, halwa, dhoop, Deepak, milk, curd, honey, desi ghee, sugar and other things. In this completion ceremony head pundit keep on repeating that he has completed the Yagya in given time and the native has also followed all the procedures so he should be blessed with the benefic sun or removal of malefic sun by the blessings of the god and goddess. It is to be noted here that significant planet in navgraha is also offered and donated with offering in the completion ceremony. These offerings include copper, sugar, wheat, rice, milk, oil, utensils, pulses, lentils, moles and other specific things. After this Yagya, the blessings are taken from the gods and goddess to start the final ceremony of next step is performing Havana.
This is an important and powerful procedure and this Yagya should be performed by trained pundits only. In this Havana a direct connection between the corresponding planet and natives is established by the mantras from pundits. It is a bit technical step and involves accuracy and precision in practice. A holy fire is lit which is called Yagna. In this process after the enchantment of each mantra, an offering is donated to the holy fire of Havan Kund. With the end of each mantra a sound of “Swaha” is produced and then offering is devoted to the fire. This process goes in sync for long and is repeated again and again. These things offered to the fire form Yagya samagri, and may differ for different Yagyas. At the end a dry coconut filled with specific fillings recommended by pundits are offered to the holy-yagna and mantras are chanted by pundits on native’s behalf. After which the native is asked to go circles around the havan-kund. Circle may be of 1, 3 or 7 in number according to the nature of Yagya and this step is called “Parikrama”. This marks the end of Surya Shanti Yagya.
All the above mentioned steps are to be performed in specific manner recommended by the Pundits in accordance with the Vedic Jyotish Rituals. You may not get the desired result if you log behind in some procedure and do not perform it in prescribed manner. Other than these processes, there are some guidelines and precautions for the native which he/she should follow during the running time of Yagya. One is prohibited to consumption of alcohol and should refrain from smoking. The native is advised to have good conduct and should not take part in any act of violence. One should not eat non-vegetarian food till the end of Yagya. One is refrained to get involved in physical or sexual contacts with his partner whether married or unmarried. One should rise early morning, take bath and pray to. He or she should try to connect with Surya Yagya and pray to be blessed by the gods.
The point to note here is that Surya Yagya can be conducted with or without the presence of Native. This is that the Yagya can be conducted by pundits on native’s behalf if he is unable to be present due to certain circumstances. A photograph is kept as a symbol of the native and head pundit mentions the name of the pundit who shall perform mantras on native’s behalf and the native should be blessed. The pundit designated first performs the native’s mantras and then his. This way with the help of assistant pundits, Surya Yagya can be conducted with or without the presence of the native.
