Creation Of Panchbati
Creation of Panchabati
The Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer can all be approached through fire. Fire is said to be the mouth and messenger of all divine forces. We are all made from the five elements-earth, fire, water, air and ether. The fire within us comes out of and dissolves into Shiva. Prithvi, Agni, Jal and Vayu interact as our physical body in the presence of the Consciousness within and outside our physical bodies in the presence of the Larger Consciousness that is Shiva. When we pray or meditate or perform any worship, deities come into our internal fire and accept our prayers. Our internal fire regulates our metabolic processes and thereby all the activities essential to preserve life. Without our internal fire, we would not exist in our physical body. However, most people are not conscious of their internal fire and even for those who are, their internal fire consciousness is weak. Havans solve this predicament by invoking various deities into the external fire in the yagna-kund and enabling the aspirant to make offerings to the deities through the fire. As the aspirant chants mantras and utters swaha while pouring offerings into the fire, all sins/ bad karmas keep getting burnt up. Havan is thus one of the most effective ways for human beings to get connected to the divine. The advantages of Havans range from resolving planetary influences, solving various problems, getting success in career and business, health issues and general well-being and prosperity. When performed by pandits well-versed in the scriptures, Havans inevitably yield tangible results.
