The Ati Rudra Maha Yagnam impressed lots of people all over the world. Obviously not many were able to be physically present in Puttaparthi at that time. However our impression is that many – from a distance – participated in this powerful ceremony. Sathya Sai Baba has given a powerful mantra to maintain the energy flow for the benefit of the world.
Ohm namo bhagavate sadguru sri sathya sai shankara narayana swamine namah
Furthermore, Baba stated that reciting this mantra over some period of time, would grant you the full benefit and power of the ritual without being physically present at the ceremony.
On the 12th (last) day of the ceremony in August 2006 was announced that the next Ati Rudra Maha Yagnam will be held in Chennai, shortly after the Tamil festival Pongal on 14 January 2007.
