'The Jyotish and Yagya Programmes are for the development of enlightenment—life free from dependence on surroundings and circumstances, and mastery over one's own destiny. It is possible to live life free from suffering and problems through the preventive influence of Yagya performances. Yagya is a means to accomplish perfection in life.'


The Jyotish Programme

'Jyotish is a precious discipline of Vedic Science. It is the science and technology of consciousness and commands authority over the whole range of the ever-expanding universe. It's contribution is enlightenment, self-sufficiency, invincibility and all possibilities in the life of any individual and nation.'


The Jyotish Programme is a precious discipline of Maharishi's Vedic Science. Jyotish represents the 'all-knowing' quality of self-referral consciousness. It is the value that sees the past, connects with the present, and foresees the future.

Jyotish has been applied from time immemorial to help foresee future trends in all areas of life through the mathematical science of prediction. Prediction of future events is possible because the same orderly and sequential Laws of Nature which govern the evolution of the universe also govern the life of the individual. Knowing any one point in the sequence of life, such as the time and place of birth, a Jyotish expert can mathematically calculate forwards and backwards in time, and can prescribe Yagyas to ensure a bright future.

The Yagya Programme

'Through the Yagyas, everything is possible. Underline the word: everything is possible. . . . Yagyas are all powerful; Yagyas are all powerful; Yagyas are all powerful.'


Yagyas are ancient precise performances by specially trained Vedic Pandits of India, which create specific life-supporting influences from the field of pure consciousness, the source of Natural Law.

The system of Yagya is the profound knowledge and technology of the reverberations of the Unified Field of Natural Law—the sounds of the Mantra of the Veda—that have been preserved for countless generations in the most ancient living tradition of knowledge on earth—the Vedic Tradition of India. Maharishi has revived the system of Yagya in its purity and effectiveness, and he has trained thousands of Vedic Pandits of India in their performance, to neutralize negativity in world consciousness and restore balance in Nature.

Maharishi's Vedic Science teaches that every thought and action creates influences which spread throughout the universe from where they ultimately reflect back to the originator. This is the principle of, 'as you sow, so shall you reap,' which tells us that our thoughts and actions create influences which always return to us at some later time. With the help of Jyotish, it is possible to precisely calculate at what time what kind of influence, created by our past thoughts and actions, will return to us.

Maharishi explains that through the Yagya Programme we can take responsibility for our past actions and neutralize their effect, because Yagya performances are from that transcendental level from where the result of an action emerges. Through the Yagya Programme, individuals and whole nations can be saved from the influence of their past actions.

Yagya performances are the reverberations of the transcendental reality, and they produce specific effects. They can help avert undesirable circumstances and enhance the success of any undertaking, because they are the performance of total Natural Law, the performance of the Will of God, which is much more powerful than any destructive power that exists in the world.

Yagyas performed for the individual and his family bring Support of Nature for health, wealth, and happiness. Yagyas performed for a company, a college, any organization, or for the nation as a whole, enlivens Natural Law bringing fulfilment to all.
