Final Word

Dear all,

You started witnessing some of the important photographs which were procured by me after a lapse of nearly 10 years after the yaagam.  

These are the rare photographs and they speak of the pleasant days when the entire team was together for over a year with a sole aim of completing the task to the best of our abilities. 

Yes, FINALLY WE DID. 

Hence, We have shown to the world that the team work is always result oriented. 

Yes, We have also shown to the world that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A HUMAN BEING. 

Yes, we made our lives purposeful, eventful, and we contributed our best to the society in the hardest days of the society.  

Yes, Miss Marian Pinzi - an Italian who did research on this event, specified that this Yaagam helped INDIA - ECONOMICALLY; SOCIALLY; POLITICALLY; CULTURALLY; IN TIMELY RAINS; STRONG FINANCIAL BASE   AS COMPARED TO 1-1-2005 TO TODAY.  

Everyone has to accept these basic details and facts. 

Now, it is upto you to decide and believe whether HOLY SHRI ASWAMEDHAYAAGAM is the main event that brought unusual changes in the country or some other factors.  It is your choice. 

The team is ready to perform SHRI VISWAJIT YAAGAM for overall prosperity of the country in due course of time.  I do not know where I stand financially for this great and UNUSUAL EVENT. 

Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah. 

Affectionately, fraternally 
Yours 
HARA HARA MAHADEVA

End of the Yaagam


I am fortunate I have been honored as ASWAMEDHAYAAJI after the event and at the end of the event.  This honor is not simple for ME but for the entire team/  If the dedicated team did not contribute to their mighty, perhaps as a LONE person, I could have been a failure.  

My Small Team for the Yaagam



This great historical event was performed by a small team as shown in the first photo.  The last photo is another great and rare photograph where one can see Shri Prakasa Rao ( Called as TATA Garu) who recently died.  He is from Narayan Khed in Adilabad District and a very good guide and path shower to several hundreds of people.  Unfortunately, he died in a accident in the recent times. 

Dampati Pooja - Worshiping of Couples

It is a great opportunity for me and my wife when we could honor aged couples to the tune of atleast 200 in the Event.  It was a great pleasure and we did not restricted ourself to caste or religion in this aspect. 

Shri Arvind Rao IPS

Shri Arvind Rao IPS was the Chief of Intelligence of AP State who visited the Yaagam.  He is one of the sanskrit scholars and a most eminent personality of the State.  

Shri Mahant Narayana Giri


Shri Mahant Narayana Giri Swamiji is one of my closest associates.  He retained several positions in the SADHU SANT Society of India and abroad.  We used to visit several places and the saint with a long beard is another great personality who made the vedic scholars dance to the tunes with his melodious bhajan.  

Honor to the Great Personalities

Perhaps 200 plus awards were given to great personalities who have contributed their best to the society in various fields during the Holy Yaagam.  

It is pertinent to mention that so far Myself, my wife  and our only son P Maruti Rama Raghav together honored or distributed awards to various personalities till now exceeding to 500 and the most relevant was MAHAA KAVI KALIDAAS GNANA RATNA AWARD.  Please take pains to visit another blog with documentary details in awardsgivensofar.blogspot.in and surely you will enjoy the most enjoyable matters.  Getting a award is a reward to our contribution, giving a award indicates our talent to identify the greatness in others.  I trust this concept. 

Uregimpu or public celebrations - procession


Daily procession is one of the events that attracted the mass and public 

Reception

We took pleasure of inviting the personalities in a befitting manner by garlanding them at the entrance and taking with the band to the tents provided for them in the venue or direct to the dais for addressing the gathering.  Sometimes, horse pulled chariot was used and it was driven by me and my wife while the dignitaries sit on the chariot. 

A Saint from England

This is a great personality from England specially came to India for the purpose of witnessing the Holy Event.  

Several Saints from different parts of the country visited




Highly learned scholars visited the Yaagam and they are from different parts of the country. 

Cow Worship in the event




It is a pleasant event to worship Holy Cow  every day before the start of the rituals and Yaagam.  Cow and calf were specially brought for this purpose.  Over a period of time, during the yaagam several cows were also brought to the venue.  Cow Donation was done several times during the event. 

HH from Haridwar / Rishikesh

When I visited Haridwar and Rishikesh I was fortunate to meet this great personality and I met him in his ashram as well in my North Indian Tour in different places.  He is a great saint and he has sent his disciples for the Yaagam. 

HH Shri Shri Shri Jagadguru Shri Abhinavoddanada Shri Vidya Nrusimha Bharati Mahaswamiji of Pushpagiri Mutt


What else is great in this event when HH himself handed over the Yaaga Danda and started the Akhanda Deep.

We are fortunate HH Shri Vishwa Yogi Vishwamji Maharaj readily accepted  our invitation to the Yaagam and he visited while another great personality is that HH Shri Shri Shri Swamiji of Pushpagiri Shri Jagadaacharya Peeetham.  These two great personalities made the Yaagam venue most memorable by their visit and presence.

Great and fortunate HH Susamendra Swamiji of Shri Raghavendra Mutt Mantralayam










If I wish to say whether some one is fortunate in the event, surely I say " I am fortunate and my family is fortunate and those who attended and witnessed the Yaagam are fortunate particularly those who took darshan of HH and blessings of HH Shri Swamiji.  

The reason, it was a tough time for me to arrange for funds for the Yaagam and I was to put my house for sale as already circulated to all in the Holy Event itself. One of such forms are already uploaded in the exhibits.  I was to decide whether I should drop or continue the idea of performing the Holy Historical Yaagam.  I went to Mantralayam along with some friends particularly along with Shir Venkateswara Rao of Guntur and his associates.  I stood far away from HH and sent the invitation written in Sanskrit.  HH was offering Teertha and Prasadam to the devotees.  On seeing the most beautifully decorated Invitation as was used in the olden days by Maharaajas etc.  He went through the entire script carefully.  He asked his associate, who is the person who brought this to him, and that gentleman showed me.  HH called me to come close to him.  HH said that he is coming to the Yaagam unfailingly as he said " it is the only one Yaagam which gives Moksham - salvation to any soul by just seeing the Havan Kund" He was so great and he could notice the importance of the event.  I felt really proud and just then I decided to complete the Yaagam what ever are the hurdles and difficulties I face. 
\
HH visited the Yaagam and got down from the Car in front of the gate and he refused to sit in the Horse cart specially arranged and driven by me and my wife.  He walked all the way to the entire area with the support of myself and my wife.  Ultimately, he addressed the gathering from the dais and blessed those who were present.  

We are in one word "fortunate" as Lord Raghavendra Swamy Himself walked to the Yaagam.

Shri Jana Reddy, the then Home Minister visited the Holy Event and worshiped the Holy Horse.  It is really strange to see that Shri Jana Reddy stood all the way without any security for him in the Venue till the Poornahuti is completed and till the Avabridha Stanam is completed.  It is quire memorable that he paid lot of respect to the Holy Event. 

Honorable the then Chief Minister Shri Y S Rajasekhar Reddy visit to the yaagam


Shri Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, the then Chief Minister of AP State attended the Holy Event and received the blessings of the Lord besides Honor by me personally.  A unique symbol of Holy Event was presented to him.  

Daily cultural events

Daily cultural events are of special attraction in the venue.  Continuous day and night events were arranged and no one who attended the Yaagam was given free time to pay attention to the worldly affairs.  Only devotional and only devotional utility of the time was focused for the event taking several pains by me. 

Lord Venkateswara Idols from Prakasam District

These idols were brought from Prakasam District for this purpose as NITYA KALYANAM is done for this Lord and it is believed that daily kalyanam brings laurel to the event.  Daily Kalyanam was performed to the Lord besides hundreds of Shri Satyanarayana Vratams all the days of the Yaagam.
