Once again, Paramahamsa Vishwananda expressed a wish to perform a Maha Yagna with 108 yagna kunds for His Appearance Day celebration. Through His Grace, He is providing the opportunity to take part in this very special event by sponsoring one of the 108 smaller kunds. In essence, Guruji's kund will be like the Guru bead on a mala of 108 smaller kunds.

Did you know?

A yagna is an ancient Vedic fire ceremony which has been practised for millennia. Yagna means to selflessly sacrifice for noble purposes. Performing yagna is an act of worship where offerings are made into the holy fire which becomes an aspect of God – the mouth of Lord Narayana.


What to expect

Each individual or spiritually-married couple will be seated in front of their own mini-yagna kund. Everything you need will be provided for you, including a puja plate with all the necessary offerings. No previous experience is required as Guruji will guide you every step of the way so that you can perform your own yagna.

What to wear

The Maha Yagna is a worship ritual and appropriate Indian dress is required. Women must wear saris and cover their heads with their sari or a shawl to participate in the yagna. Men must wear kurtas and dhotis. Tilaks are also required.  


This very special event is limited to 108 registrations and the kunds will be assigned on a first-come-first served basis. Be sure to read the restrictions below to make sure you are eligible before reserving your kund. Please note, your non-refundable payment is required at the time of registration. If for any reason you are unable to attend the event, you may make your own arrangements to pass on your kund to someone else if you like.
