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.

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 cows produce unique ingredients that are crucial for the well-being of our Earth ecosystem.  this is why cows are so revered in India.  Gau Mata, Mother Cow nourishes the planetary atmosphere.  in these times, i recommend to not take cow or any animal products for food.  because of rampant human consumption of cow's products, factory farming developed and has gotten out of control.  when the Vedas were written, cows lived in homes and goshalas in a similar manner as you would house your beloved dog or cat.  unless you are able to live with cows as in ancient days, in this day and age, i recommend a pure vegan diet for those wishing to follow a path of non-violence (ahimnsa, do no harm) and that includes Gau Raksha (Cow Protection).  the special relationship of  Gau Mata with an Agnihotri is one for a higher purpose to protect and heal the atmosphere.  humans must put her needs before our own.  She 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

for tutorials to preview and use along with the book, see my youtube channel

for a preview video of creative yajna and much more info go to the first page of my blog

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. a few sources and ways to do it yourself are provided. we do not 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 sacred woods found only in India are unacceptable.  i am personally continuously studying every available text.  (i am managing director of a Vedantic Esoteric Library.) 

if you wish to start your own practice you would need some household items and a copper kit available below:

-a brick, stone or 2 pieces of tile stacked up to protect the surface you practice on.  if you are outdoors you can place the kunda directly on the earth. 
-a satellite clock or mobile phone with seconds shown OR the iagnihotra app provided by Parama Maha Shree's Vedic Society.
-ghee (from a local or online ethical crueltry free source)
-rice (akshat, unbroken whole grains)
-glass or metal containers for ghee and rice
-dried cow patties (which you can make locally or get online from agnihotra goshalas) 
-a metal tray is a nice thing to put the whole set-up on for easy moving outdoors if it becomes too smoky indoors or just to display and store it easily.
and most important:
-the specific copper pyramid kunda OR the basic copper kit OR the complete boxed kit
(when purchased here you will get this ebook included at no additional charge).

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  or donate as you are able

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 or donate as you are able

 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.

any questions? message me.

SHIVA BHAIRAVA PUJA - EBOOK
by Rev Amma Niradhara Mari  - 21 pages of instructions and inspirational pictures.  $21.11 or donate as you are able

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  or donate as you are able


“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.

RUDRAKSHA - EBOOK
by Rev Amma Niradhara Mari -  3 pages  $5.55  or donate as you are able

this is a short 3 page ebook jam packed with valuable information on why sadhus, yogis and holy people in india wear Rudraksha.  (and you may want to wear it too)

The word ‘rudraksha’ is two Sanskrit words ‘Rudra’, a synonym for Lord Shiva, and ‘aksha’, meaning "eyes".   It is said that the seed pods of Rudraksha contains the secrets of the entire evolution of the cosmos within it.

i have several available here

Rudraksha has been found to boost the confidence, courage and inner strength of the wearer significantly. When a person has traumatic shock or just plain bad habits, the body picks up samskaras. When regularly wearing Rudraksha, it becomes part of body and the seed begins the healing. Rudraksha brings grace in life. Generally after 40 days of wearing, one can feel the the changes in him or herself and attitude towards life but some changes are observed immediately.

AARTI - ABSOLUTE LOVE EBOOK
by Rev. Amma Niradhara Mari  -  19 pages $11.11

The aarati (pronounced ‘arti’) is the most regularly performed ritual of Hindu faith. It is a short ceremony performed in greeting and gratitude, usually with mantra and shloka. It consists of a lighted lamp in the right hand, which we wave in a clockwise circling movement to light the entire image of the Lord. As the earth moves in the clockwise direction, it is the path of least resistance and the flame and our intentions are supported by the frequencies and electromagnetic currents already in motion since the time of Creation.

it is a very simple ceremony but so rich and filled with meaning that it took quite some time to make this ebook. aarti can be as simple or as elaborate as you make it. this book gives you the spectrum.

the ebook includes everything you ever wanted to know about aarti and how to do it. both step by step and in story format. history and traditions are included. support materials include aarti shlokas and hymns, how to perform a simple purification beforehand and about prasad.

if there are any tems that are hard for you to find, they are available through me as well.

TILAK - A BLESSING
by Rev. Amma Niradhara Mari  - this is a 5 page ebook - $4.44 or donate as you are able

Tilak (Sanskrit tilaka, “mark”) is applied at the Ajna Chakra, the space between the two eyebrows. On a devotee, the tilak takes the form of a line or lines and/ or a dot and usually indicates sectarian affiliation according to the type of paste used and the way the marks are drawn.

Tilak indicates the point at which the spiritual eye opens. Lord Siva has a third eye at the Brumadhya. When he opens the third eye, the three worlds (Triloka: Bhu, Buvah, Svar) come to completion and all is transformed.

When the third eye of the Jiva (living being) is opened, the three kinds of afflictions – Adhyatmika, Adhidaivika and Adhibhautika - are burnt to ashes.  The three Karmas - Sanchita, Prarabdha and Agami - and also all the sins committed in the countless previous births, are burnt.
