my 47 page PRAYING WITH FIRE - AGNIHOTRA VIJNANA ebook  which is especially sensitive to Vegans

(ok now its 49 pages incl the 2 covers -  i split the ebook into 3 parts - sorry it was too big for some uploads !  however i did conveniently split it into part 2 : method and part 3 : support materials, so it is kind of nice this way.   if you still want it in one piece message me - it can be done with patience.)  inneryajnya@gmail.com

i am including a 4th upload which is a photo of Paramashree Satguru Gajanana Maharaj - the reviver of the Sacred Fire.

you will have access to me by messaging for resources and updates.

i am an Interfaith Minister with a personal practice in Vedic Fire rituals for 14 years.   i am Vegan for 19 years.  i studied in NY and India and i am currently still living in India as a result, i am the managing director and the Amma of a small Ashram on a holy River.  this ebook compiles a long and interesting journey into a teachable sadhana that will bring peace and healing to anyone with a sincere practice, even if you are Vegan.

note that while this practice has no substitute for pure cow's ghee and dung, it does require that the cow products used are Ahimnsa (cruelty free) and this book sources and details exactly what that strictly means. please dont email me with objections about the ghee.  we cannot use 'normally obtained ghee'.  how this works for an ethical Vegan (and why) is very well explained in this ebook.

research is being conducted as to what plant based fuel may be substituted but for now, what we know for sure is that coconut oil, sesame oil, soya oil and most woods except for a few rare ones found only in India are unacceptable.  i am personally continuously inquiring for years at the highest levels of priesthood in India and by studying every available text.  (i am managing director of a Vedantic Esoteric Library.)  this has further revealed to me the extreme value of an extraordinary relationship with the cow in the manner of a beloved family member.

the basis of Vedic culture rests on the protection and care of cows.  this ebook spells that out.  the Vedanta / Sanatana Dharma requires the human / cow relationship to be mutually beneficial.  the reason being is that cow's are crucial for the well-being of our earth ecosystem.  this is why cows are so revered in India.  in these times i recommend to not take cow or any animal products for food.  in this day and age a pure vegan diet is recommended for those wishing to follow a path of non-violence (ahimnsa, do no harm)  the special relationship of the Go Mata, Mother Cow with an Agnihotri is one for a higher purpose to protect and heal the atmosphere.  humans must put her needs before our own.  with this relationship she is truly providing the basic atmospheric nourishment for the planet and must not in any way be forced in that role, but rather made to be so happy and content that she supplies a bit of surplus for yajnyas after her calf's needs are met.

the ebook includes: 

* how exactly to perform agni hotra foundational sunrise / sunset yajnya
* basic yajna for meditation, peace and healing
* several Sanskrit mantras designated for yajnya and their meanings
* how to make ghee and dry cow dung patties needed for correct performance of the yajnas
* where to purchase ghee and dry cow dung patties online if you dont want to make them
* background and insight into the meaning behind these rituals

VEGAN ABHISHEKAM EBOOK - by Rev Amma Niradhara Mari
this is a totally animal-free version of Abhishekam for Shivalingam.  it details a plant based Panchamrit.  $10.08

you get the vijnana of VEGAN ABHISHEKAM - a 10 page ebook of detailed instructions, photos and mantras to perform Abhishekam with no animal / dairy products and still keep the integrity of the Puja. i perform vegan abhishek on all of my shivalingams. with this listing i will include the story of the Shivalingam (digitally) and one of my digital photos of Narmada.

the Abhishekam is the puja of washing the lingam with Panchamrit (5 sweet nectars) and holy river water.

all of the mantras and their English translations are included in transliterated Sanskrit. full instructions are given step by step.

please see listings for Shiva Lingams and other tools for performing pujas  HERE.

SHIVA LINGAM Supports Kundalini Activation Electromagnetically, works with prana – the body’s electromagnetic field. this is a fire - water relationship which is what empowers the chakra system.
Shivalinga are an object of worship to be placed on a special altar. you may have a less traditional approach as shown here. with your plants or in a meditation space. in a bowl with other special stones. no matter where they go, these stones create a place of honor in your environment wherever they are bringing mystery, antiquity and sacred resonance with electro-magnetic fields.

All Shiva Lingam connect by magnetic energy to all others by the pranic field anywhere in the world, in all places and times. this intense magnetic intelligence is what makes this stone, in my opinion, the most powerfully accurate dowser.

SHRI LAKSHMI PUJAN 25 PAGE EBOOK
by Rev Amma Niradhara Mari  -8 pages of instructions and inspirational pictures.  $11.11

 this is a comprehensive book of worship for Goddess Lakshmi. it is 25 pages - illustrated an including support materials. Lakshmi Puja is an important form of worship for Hindu women at various stages in life. Married women continue to perform Lakshmi Pujan on Diwali and in times of marital stress. The older married women join the newlyweds to support them in their first Gangaur after marriage. Diwali and Gangaur are the 2 main festivities for unmarried women to seek divine help in procuring the perfect mate. These 2 pujas together form a seasonal and cyclical tribute to Divine Mother in her 2 most popular forms – Lakshmi and Parvati. The roles of these Divine Archtypes are deeply entrained in the consciousness of the participants of these festivals.

Worship, in the form of offering flowers and bowing your head and praying, reciting shlokas is only the facade of a true devotee. The real offering is your self. Goddess Mahalakshmi is all-pervading in all forms of nature therefore we can worship by using our natural resources wisely. As you become ready, purified by Her Grace, the way to achieve care of Nature is made known to you according to what your personal and local needs are.

SHIVA BHAIRAVA PUJA - EBOOK
by Rev Amma Niradhara Mari  - 21 pages of instructions and inspirational pictures.  $21.11

you get a vijnana of SHIVA MAHADEV IN THE FORMS OF BHAIRAVA - PUJAS AND SADHANAS - a 21 page ebook of detailed instructions, photos and mantras to perform as a vegan with no animal / dairy products and still keep the integrity of the Puja.

Bhairav means the one who inspires Bhay / Bhaya or fear. By invoking this energy, we put aside our “fear of fear” and worship fear instead so that we may become Abhaya - fearless. It is this manifestation of Shiva who is seen as being fearsome and terrible. Once we have survived the experiences in life that most people fear, we become fearless of them, stare them right in the eye and give thanks for the blessing of that lesson. Hence, we need not experience that again, having conquered that fear.

Kala/ Kaal Bhairav and his boy form Batuk are detailed in this ebook with Puja instructions and mantra sadhana.

 Pitru Tarpanam is the main Puja for Kaal Bhairav's Ashtami day and it is also detailed in short and long form in this ebook. also, the 8 Ashtang Bhairavs are included along with bij mantras.

all of the mantras and their English translations are included in transliterated Sanskrit. full instructions are given step by step. the ebook is illustrated with vinage murtis and my own puja photos.

please see my other listings for ebooks and tools.

Hindustanis are quite nature sensitive and worship all of nature as God. ALL things are God - all nature, all people, every and all are part of the ONE. as our feet, hands, face and heart are all parts of our one body.

GURU DIKSHA AND DISCIPLESHIP - EBOOK
by Rev Amma Niradhara Mari  - 22 pages of instructions and inspirational pictures.  $11.07


“Initiation is like that extra burst of energy which is required to propel you into infinite space between you and the self.”  -Swami Satyananda Saraswati

this is an introduction for those seeking diksha from a Guru and what that entails. it is 22 pages - illustrated and including a procedure.  details will vary from lineage to lineage and a bit about that is covered here too.

Diksha is given in a one-to-one ceremony, and typically includes the taking on of a serious spiritual discipline. It can be done as a group ceremony among Initiates of the same Teacher but even in that setting, the one-to-one relationship of Shishya (Student) to Guru (Master/Teacher) is key.

Sadhana, in the form of offering flowers and bowing your head and praying, reciting shlokas is only the facade of a true devotee. The real offering is your self.
