In the Vedic period, various principles of nature were worshipped as gods. Among these gods, Sun, Fire, Wind, Rain, Earth, Water etc. were prominent. Various Vaishvins of nature were worshipped as gods. For example, Sun was worshipped as Sun God, Fire as Agni Dev, Wind as Vayu Dev, Rain as Varun Dev, Earth as Prithvi Dev and Water as Vasu Dev. Reverence and respect for nature was depicted. In Vedic religion, nature was considered the basis of life. Cow was worshipped as mother.

In auspicious works, gaudaan, shivabhishek and yagya programs were performed in Vedic manner. Therefore, it was considered necessary to depict reverence and respect towards nature. Stress was laid on conservation of nature. The importance of preserving nature has been explained in Vedic religion. Only by preserving nature can a perspective of human life be formed. Due to the worship of nature in Vedic religion, a rich and diverse culture developed in India. The worship of nature developed a feeling of love and respect for nature in Indians.

Significance of Vedic rituals

In our Vedic rituals, sacrifice, penance and charity have a special place. In the Vedic era, ritual means the performance of various rites of sacrifice. In these Vedic Rituals, various types of Vedic sacrifices were performed for the worship of various gods. Milk, ghee, food and Soma were offered as sacrifices by lighting fire in the yagya kund.

It was believed that the offerings made in the fire reach the gods and the fire acts as a vehicle for these offerings. At various places in the Vedas, there is mention of offerings in the form of ghee, food and soma in the yagnas. In the Vedic scriptures. For example, if we talk about Vedic Rituals, then Yagya is a very important activity for Hindu religious people. It provides them an opportunity to honor the gods, thank them for everything and ask for forgiveness for any sins they have committed throughout their lives. This is a special religious process through which man can attain not only material happiness but also spiritual wealth. Yagya is the lifeblood of Indian culture and the essence of Vedic religion. 'Yagya' according to Bhagavad Gita: According to Bhagavad Gita, any work done for the sake of God is called Yagya.


Why to do Vedic rituals

In the modern scientific age, the number of people who ridicule Vedic rituals like yajna and havan as superstitions is increasing day by day. Actually, such people do not have even the slightest knowledge of the scientific nature of rituals like yajna and havan. If such people had knowledge, they would not have made a hue and cry about their ignorance in the context of these rituals. In the last few years, Western scientists have done many experiments to test the rituals of yajna and havan on the touchstone of science. The results of these scientific experiments have clearly revealed how scientific the knowledge that Indian sages and saints had revealed thousands of years ago was. For example, the research done by French scientist Trille in the context of yajna and havan rituals is eye-opening. According to Trille, the wood that is burnt in yajna and havan produces a gas called formic aldehyde. According to Trile, this gas is fully capable of keeping the atmosphere-environment clean by destroying bacteria.

Apart from India, fire is considered sacred in countries like China, Japan, Germany and Greece. In these countries, there is a practice of burning different types of incense. In fact, the form of any object that is burnt in fire becomes more and more subtle. Modern nuclear scientists have now completely assimilated the fact that subtle is much more powerful than gross. When any substance is burnt in fire, its form undergoes a qualitative change to a great extent. For example, if a person consumes any poison in its gross form, he will die soon. On the other hand, Ayurveda says that if the same poison is made subtle through Agni Sanskar and consumed in proper and appropriate quantity, then the same poison in its new form will make the person healthy and strong by making him disease-free.


Shivabhishek: Significance, Types, Puja  Vidhi & Online Shivabhishek

Lord Shiva is especially worshiped in Hindu religion. Performing Rudrabhishek is considered fruitful. Lord Shiva is very fond of the stream of water and hence the Shivling is worshiped and anointed, which is called Rudrabhishek. Devotees please Lord Shiva by worshiping him through Rudrabhishek. According to the ancient story, Lord Brahma was born from the lotus that grew from the navel of Vishnu. When Brahmaji asked the reason for his birth, Vishnuji told the secret of Brahma's origin. He said that you were born because of me, but Brahmaji was not ready to accept this and a war started between the two. Angered by this war, Lord Shiva incarnated in the form of Rudra Linga. When Brahma and Vishnu did not know the beginning and end of this Linga, they accepted defeat. Then both of them together anointed the Linga, which pleased Lord Shiva and from then onwards Rudrabhishek started.

Yagya : Significance, Types and Puja Vidhi

Yagya is considered to be the best ritual in human life. Yagyas have been an integral part of human life from the ancient Hindu Sanatan tradition to the modern era. In Hindu society, if any auspicious work is done in the house, it is mandatory to have a Yagya. In such a situation, whether it is a simple worship, home entry or naming ceremony of a child, or even if it is an important tradition like marriage, Yagya is very important.

In Hinduism, any ritual or practice performed in front of a sacred fire is a Yagya. Yagya is derived from the Sanskrit word “yag”, which means worship, prayer, offering and respect. The process of Yagya looks similar to Havan or Homa, but these are two different Hindu rituals. Yagya is considered a part of Sanatan culture. But, this is not just any religious work, Yagya is an important science. In today's time, where everyone is struggling with physical, mental and financial crisis, many people are seen wandering to get peace of mind. The chanting of mantras during the Yagya generates a vibration. This releases a positive energy that purifies the chakras in your body. The body and mind are purified by the smoke emanating from the Yagya. This gives peace of mind.

Yagya is performed by four types of Vedic priests, Adhvaryu, Hotra, Udgatra & Brahmin. Mainly five types of Yagya have been described and their description is also found in Hindu mythological texts. Brahma Yagya, Dev Yagya, Pitra Yagya, Vaishva Devyagya, Atithi Yagya.There is a scientific reason behind the Yagya because only herbs are used in the Yagya. When Yagya is performed, not only do they become more powerful through the chanting of mantras, but the chanting of mantras and the smoke of these herbs also lead to internal, external and mental purification of the yagya performer and the patient. Along with this, mental and physical strength and positive energy is also available. All plants contain some liquid, oily substances which are called alkaloids in scientific language. Today, scientists are researching these alkaloids and making many new medicines from different plants. In comparison to all types of medicines given to humans, medicinal herbs and medicinal havan smoke are more beneficial in many diseases.


Gaudan : Significance, Types, Puja Vidhi and Online service

There is no virtue greater than charity in this world because nothing goes with the soul after death, only the virtue of charity done by hand goes with it. The person who has neither donated nor helped any helpless person, nor has he ever given food to a Brahmin, has never given water to a thirsty person, nor has he ever donated clothes to anyone, that creature wanders from birth to birth.

In Hinduism, the glory of the cow is immense. It is a symbol of Hindu culture. The holy feelings of Hindus are directly related to the Desi cow. The highest eternal abode of God is also associated with the cow and is called ‘Golok’. In Hinduism, there are many sacraments - one of which is the Gaudan sacrament. Gau + Dan = Gaudan This is a Sanskrit word that has become Gaudan in common parlance. The cow has been given the title of “mother” in Hinduism. It is believed that in earlier times, after mother’s milk, cow’s milk was considered nectar. The tradition of Gaudan in Hinduism is because Hinduism believes in moving forward with the past, present and future together. We have to endure the fruits of our deeds in the past, today and our future generations tomorrow. In Hinduism it is believed that “by donating a cow, a person gets rid of his ancestors’ bad deeds and his own sins.” Among all donations, Gaudan is considered to be the greatest donation. Donating a cow began to be considered an extremely meritorious act. No Yajna kriya was considered completely successful until there was a donation of a cow in it. At the time of donation, the horns of the cow were covered with gold and its hooves were covered with silver and its body was covered with expensive silk cloth. The special glory of donating a cow along with a calf has been told in Dharmasutras, Dharmashastras and Puranas and this method is still prevalent today. Donating a cow on the occasion of an eclipse is an extremely necessary method. For a Hindu lying on his deathbed, donating a cow to cross the difficult Vaitarani of Yamlok is still an essential practice today.
