Tantra means a technique for awakening. The Sat Chandi Mahayajna is a very powerful tantric yajna. It is conducted for two purposes. Firstly, I wish to give the villagers, who are my neighbours, the opportunity of taking part in such a ceremony. Secondly, only the Divine Mother will help the downtrodden. Nobody else helps them. These poor people elect the government, but the government forgets them. There is a lot of talk, but not even the most basic amenities are provided. I know because I live here. I am the witness. Only the force of God can help those who are helpless and neglected, and it is with this hope that I have organized the Sat Chandi Mahayajna.
Sarve bhavantu sukhinah,
Sarve santu niramaya,
Sarve bhadrani pashyantu,
Maa kashchit dukha bhagabhavet.
May God make them prosperous,
May God make them free from disease,
May God remove all the sickness and ills from their family,
And let them enjoy bliss, peace, happiness and health.
This is my sankalpa, and it is the reason I am performing the Sat Chandi Mahayajna. Until the villagers receive the grace of the Divine Mother, their sorrows will not be removed.
God told me, “Love thy neighbour. Just as I have given you the comforts of life, so will you give the same to your neighbours. I have given you a place to live and food to eat, so you will do the same for your neighbours.” This was a clear mandate.
Since that time the people of this area have received a great deal of inspiration, help and encouragement. More than anything, they have received an identity. Rikhia, the name of their village, is now on the world map. I welcome you all to the yajna on behalf of the lowly and humble people of Rikhia.
