KANSAS CITY, U.S.: The Hindu Temple and Cultural Center of Kansas City is holding a special spiritual ceremony, “World Peace Maha Yagna,” through May 16 at the temple. An elaborate fire pit has been created, and each day during the ceremony, priests make offerings of grain, fruit and other items to the fire God while chanting mantras from the Vedas.

Maha Yagna is performed on a grand scale, where the whole community takes part in seeking peace and harmony for the common good of humanity, said Debabrata Bhaduri, a member of the temple board.

“Yagna is a Sanskrit word derived from the root ‘yaj,’ which has a three-fold meaning: worship, unity and charity,” said Arvind Khetia, a member of the Hindu community. “As the Yagna begins, fire is ignited, and the mantra is chanted, ‘Into you I place fire that consumes the oblation that will be offered, so that everywhere all who are sustained by food are nourished and live in happiness’ ” he explains.
