30 March 2022

Sivam Sundram Vishwa Kalyana Yajna—a Vedic ritual for world peace—was held at the Amritapuri Ashram of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math, led by 108 female monastic priests, the sanyasinis and brahmacharinis. At 5 am, Swami Turiyamritananda Puri and Swamini Krishnamrita Prana lit the lamp and started the yajna.

The event was led by Amma, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi witnessed Ganapati Homa, Navagraha Homa, and Mrityunjaya Homa. At the conclusion of the yajna, Amma led everyone in meditation for world peace, asking the participants, who were from around the world, to imagine white flowers of peace falling from the sky all over the world onto the seas, rivers, mountains, forests, animals and human beings. “In this time of war and the epidemic, we all need to recharge our minds so that good may come to all and that peace may prevail throughout the world,” Amma said.

The yajna was completed with Amma leading everyone in chanting the peace prayer om lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu [“May all beings everywhere be happy”] and distributing prasad to the thousands of participants.

The Sivam Sundram – Vishwa Kalyana Yajna, conceptualized by Amma, was not held only in Amritapuri Ashram, but involved participation from all the centers of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math throughout the world.
