India, (Bangalore), October 13:

Sri Sri explains the significance of yagyas (pujas) performed during the ongoing festival of Navratri.  


There are three levels of existence - Outer world, subtleworld of different energies and Divinity or God. All the yagnas being performed here aim to achieve both spiritual andmaterial benefits. When you go deep inside yourself, from where everything hascome from, you experience the Supreme Peace. Only when you are in deepmeditation, these mantras have effect. These are very powerful and beautiful andenrich the subtle creation. We are so fortunate to be able to be a part of this.


There are pundits from all Vedas, and they will chantmantras. It is happening from thousands of years. These are done to benefit thewhole world. We have gathered here as one body, one mind and one spirit,totally immersed in what is happening. Even if we don’t know the meaning, weknow these are doing something good at subtle levels of our life, and for thewhole mankind.


The intellect may not understand but the subtle bodyunderstands the depth. And the vibrations that are produced are doing good toall the subtle layers of existence. This energy creates benevolence, benefitsthe whole mankind, washes away our bad karma, promotes harmony in the world anddesires get fulfilled. Desires get fulfilled when there is strength in thesubtle. These bring us close to self- realization and also to achieve successin the world.


As one body, one mind, established in the Ultimate Truth,fulfilling your worldly duties and relax in the depth of peace. Immerse in thislove and devotion with the feeling that everything is happening well,everything is being done for you. Like corn – when it is little warmed, itbecomes pop-corn. In the same way, consciousness is all Divinity, and with thechanting of mantras, it blossoms and manifests. This is a beautiful occasionfor letting the consciousness to blossom. OmShanti! (Let there be peace)
