O! Brahmin Priests rise: Part-5
Even the form of yajna also got destroyed due to the ignorance of the meaning of the Veda. Fire is of three forms. 1) Laukikaagni 2) Vaidyutagni and 3) Vaishwanaragni. Laukikaagni means the physical fire made of wood.

Vaidyutagni means that is related to electricity and it is electric power. Vaishwanaragni means the deity form of the fire of hunger present in stomach (Aham Vaishwanaro bhutvaa …Gita). The first two forms of fire are instrumental to cook the food and perform the yajna practically. Serving this cooked food to the people suffering from the fire of hunger is the real Homa. This fire of hunger is the deity form of fire, called as Vaishwanaragni or Upasyagni and is being worshipped. The serving of the best form of food i.e., ghee/oil and cooked food to the hungry man is called as Yajna. Interpreting the fire as the physical fire and burning the food in it is the climax of foolishness as per the preaching of sage Kapila, who is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, in Bhagavatam.

This bad tradition of burning of food in physical fire is also due to ignorance of the Vedic meanings and is one of the reasons for their poverty of food. The present day Science proves that the smoke coming from such Yajna stops the rains. It is highly foolish to say that the smoke from these Yajnas causes rains! All the deities reside in the body of satguru, who is God Himself (Yaava teervai …) and if such satguru priest is satisfied, all the deities get pleased and rains will come. The present day Yajnas result in atmospheric pollution and consequently causes famine, floods as per Science.

In the olden days, ghee was used for lighting the fire, which is called as Chakshushi Homa. Remaining ghee was used to feed the hungry and this is only the real Yajna. Soma Yajna means serving drinks/tea etc. Haviryajna means serving the snacks. Serving the food is the Paka Yajna. The hungry priest is the fire as per the first mantra of the first Veda (Agni meele …). The meaning of Agni is to worship such hungry priest first and so the word Agni generated from the word Agri. Such guru priest, who is said to be the fire of knowledge (Agne yaavai brahmanah …) accepts the food and preaches the divine knowledge. Sage Yaska says that the karma performed with simple recitation of hymns does not carry any fruit (Anagnaa niva …). Hence, simple Vedic sound does not do anything.

So, the priests should stop by-hearting the Veda and should change to the level of guru by analyzing and preaching the meaning of the Veda, which is called as Jnana Yajna. In the olden days, documentation facility was not available and so, the sages recited the Veda to pass it on to the next generations. This was the requirement during those times for the Vedas to maintain for future generations and such people really deserve a praise! The ancient sages not only recited the Veda but also enquired its meaning and so they are remembered not only as Veda Pathaka but also as Veda Pandita. When the very meaning of the Veda is knowledge, it can be understood that how much important are the Vedic meanings (Vidul Jnaane …).
