Shri Prakhar ji Maharaj

Kanpur, INDIA 2011


The Journey begins………..

The Vedas have identified two major stream of Mahayagya:

  • Smaartha Mahayagya - Where Yajnas are performed with the blend of literature from Vedas, Purans and Tantras

  • Shroth Mahayagya - Where yajnas are performed only with the guidance of Vedas

The Mahayagya throws light on the Markandeya Puran which is one of the major eighteen Mahapuranas, a genre of Hindu religious texts.
The 13th Chapter of Markendeya Puran gives a creative description on the virtues, knowledge and the power of Rajrajeshwari Maa Durga in the form of 1000 mantras. The powerful reservoir of these 1000 mantras and shlokas is compiled into Durga Saptashati paath.

The mentioned mantra gives us the best description of Maa Durga

“Vidyas samastastava Devi bhedah Striyas samastah sakala jagatsu
Tvayaikaya puritamambayaitat Kaa te stutih stavyapara paroktih”

Mother, all arts and sciences, all branches of knowledge, are your modifications; all women in the world are your manifestations. You alone pervade the entire creation.
The enchantment and practice of the exclusive and the very scared Durga Sapstshati Paath empower us with positive energy and results in building of healthy attitude towards life and accomplishment of our desires.

When 9 Durga Saptashati Paath are enchanted and aahuti is offered for one paath it is defined as Navchandi.
When 100 Durga Saptashati Paath are enchanted and aahuti is offered for ten paath it is summed up as Satchandi
When 1000 Durga Saptashati Paath are enchanted and aahuti is offered for one hundred paath it is known as Sahasra Chandi
When 10000 Durga Saptashati Paath are enchanted and aahuti is offered for one thousand paath it is recognized as Ayut Chandi
When 100000 Durga Saptashati Paath are enchanted and aahuti is offered for Ten thousand paath it is identified as Laksh Chandi

The rare Lakshchandi Mahayagya is not any ordinary effort; it can be done only with the grace of Maa Bhagwati. Any fortunate person can have sight of this pious orchestration. Mahayagya is not only associated with the development of country but also with the upliftment of people and self.The first Lakshchandi Mahayagya is performed in Kanpur (U.P.) with the sincere efforts of Swami Shri Prakhar ji Maharaj and guidance of Maa Rajrajeshwari Durga with an objective to build corruption free nation and make the lives of people happy, prosperous and blissful
The yagya is scheduled to be held from 16-01-2011 to 02-02-2011 on the banks  of Holy Ganga river at Kanpur where 2500 learned Brahmins from all over the country are enchanting 1,00,000 Durga Saptashati Paath and offering ‘AAHUTI’ for 10,000 Paath. The powerful Spiritual energy produced by this Mahayagya will certainly result in CORRUPTION FREE INDIA.

May the whole world be benefitted through this holy mahayagya

AN ALARM TO THE RISING CORRUPTION…..!! Is what I have been wondering?

India Is flourishing in most of the aspects like strong economy, better infrastructure, more number of Indians in Forbes Richest people list, technology, education, industrial growth, strong and powerful media, excellent performance by private players on the positive note but when we see the flip side of the coin, there is one word i.e corruption.

Living in a corrupt country for decades, what was it that finally led to explosion of volcano called corruption? What facilitated India to suddenly wake up against corruption? What force imprisoned political leaders, industrialists and business tycoons for their evil deeds?

The surprising disclosure of scams and scandals has badly shaken the roots of India. Pondering over the title of this article, I am definite that there prevails a spiritual connection, some divine power which allowed us to unveil the fraudulent activities which were being carried out very effortlessly in our country for the past few years

In this context I take this opportunity to introduce you to the TAPASWI, GREAT Very Respectable Saint SWAMI SRI PRAKHAR JI MAHARAJ who has dedicated himself completely to bring an end to the widespread corruption by 2016.
To accomplish this motto Swami Prakahar Ji Maharaj has intended to perform four Lakhshchandi Mahayagya in four different parts of India i.e. Kanpur, Indore, Delhi and Varanasi in the respective years 2011, 2012, 2014 & 2015, under the blessings and inspiration of Maa Rajrajeshwari. The first Lakshchandi Mahayagya of the series performed at Kanpur (U.P) from 16/01/2011-2/02/2011 was a tremendous achievement. 


Lakshchandi Mahayagya is not any ordinary effort, it can be done only with the grace of Lordess Bhagwati. Mahayagya is not only associated with the development of country but also with the upliftment of people and self.
The end result of the first Lakshchandi Mahayagya was highly miraculous and prominent. The spiritual energy generated through the Mahayagya resulted in revelation of many hidden scandals and frauds existing in our country. It would come up to your surprise but during the tenure of the first Lakshchandi Mahayagya, the biggest Scam was confronted widely amongst the citizens of India i.e. 2G spectrum scam.  Soon after this various other scams as listed below were brought to the limelight.

2G Spectrum Scam – January 2011 Commonwealth Games Scam – April 2011

We have had a number of scams in India, but none bigger than the scam involving the process of illegally allocating unified access service licenses.

At the heart of this Rs.1.76-lakh crore worth of scam is the former Telecom minister A Raja – who according to the CAG, has evaded norms at every level.

Another feather in the cap of Indian scandal list is Common wealth Games Loot. Yes, literally loot! Even before the long awaited sporting bonanza could see light of the day, the grand event was soaked in the allegations of corruption. It is known to involve large scale misappropriation of money during the preparatory phase and conduct of the 2010 Commonwealth games held in New Delhi. It is estimated that out of Rs. 70000 crore spent on the Games, only half the said amount was spent on Indian sportspersons.

Swiss Bank- Black Money

"A shocking report published by Global Financial Transparency said that India's Rs 20 Lakh Crore have been deposited with Swiss Banks. We have even written a letter to the Prime Minister in this regard. But we have not received a reply so far." - A senior BJP leader L K Advani said black money of a staggering amount of Rs 20 lakh crore stashed in Swiss banks should be brought back to India and a law must be enacted in this regard. 
The money which belonged to the nation and it’s citizens, was stashed in the illegal personal accounts of corrupt politicians, IRS, IPS officers and industrialists. An amount which is 13 times larger than the nations foreign debt. Every year this amount was increasing at a rapid speed but the Indian government seem to be silent over this matter from a very long time. The total black money accounts for 40% of GDP of India, if all the money comes back to India then that could result in huge growth burst for India.
Others like IPO Scam, Electronic Voting Scam and goes the unending list. The scale and magnitude of corruption has brought a shame to the ‘India shining’. 
The impact of the First Mahayagya was enormously unanticipated. All the major scams and fraudulent actions which were so far undisclosed to the common man soon became apparent after the purna aahuti of the yagya on 2nd Feb’2011. The positive energy and vibes generated through this Mahayagya had started playing its role and to the accomplishment of the objective of conducting such Mahayagya on the first place.


This Mahayagya had created an environment of commotion and chaos. The complete scenario had drastically changed. The headlines of the newspaper, news channels, radio and other sources of media all had one common thing to discuss –RISING CORRUPTION..!!AND JUST CORRUPTION. Unfortunately these scams were unveiled by media rather than any of our proud investigating agencies or people who are responsible to monitor our financial activities.  The common middle man became the ultimate sufferer and thus the people of the largest democracy on the globe came to streets organizing rallies and taking pledge against Corruption. The conscious citizens started demanding more participation in the governance.
Soon, The civil society activist Kisan Bapat baburao Hazare (Anna Hazare),72 started a fast unto death on April 5, 2011, in order to exert pressure on the government to ratify a strong anti-corruption act. The act is basically in the Jan Lokpal bill (literally meaning Citizen's Ombudsman Bill).

It ignited the media and the civil societies of India. Hence more and more individual and activist groups around the country joined the movement extending their whole hearted support for the cause.
There is also the spiritual yoga guru Ramdev raising the issue of the growing menace of black money and building a political party named Bharat Swabhiman (Proud India) to clean up the bane of corruption in India.
There are several other NGOs, institutions, social youth Groups, Colleges etc. who have performed a commendable job to fight and stand against corruption.
The esteemed BJP leader L.K. Advani took out an extensive Jan Chetnarath yatra (38-day long, 12,000-km rally)on corruption. "We want to remove despair and frustration among the common people and create confidence in them about a brighter India," declared Advani while starting the Yatra.
These campaigning have given a hope for wider political awakening in the country and hopefully these struggles against the corporate corruption, massive loot of natural resources and larger institutional corruption will gain strength from this.
The Judiciary System has definitely played a very crucial role. It has used the best of its powers and allowed the evil doers to be behind bars irrespective of their designation. No criminal was liberalized until there was some concrete evidence in favour of them. Immediate actions were taken against them. We owe the judiciary system for their support and praiseworthy contribution made in order to wipe off the corrupt people and practices.



The very honorable Swami Prakhar Ji Maharaj has made an open challenge to bring an end to widespread Corruption by 2016. He believes that the end result of these four Lakashchandi Mahayagya will be a new birth To India- Glorifying India.

Swami Prakhar Ji Maharaj states the First LakshchandI Mahayagya (Kanpur, 2011) was a process of sowing a seed, the seed to erase corruption The Second mahayagya (Indore, 2012) will result in the fertility of the seed. The third Mahayagya (Delhi, 2014) will yield flora and finally the Fourth Mahayagya (Varanasi, 2015) will harvest fruits and this fruit will be an origin to Corruption-free India. The positive vibes generated through this Mahayagya will provide nourishment to the growing seed and will present desired results. Finally by 2016, corruption would be wiped away from the roots of India.

Swami Sri Prakhar ji Maharaj believes that positive Adhyatmik vigor generated by these Mahayagya will subdue the negative thoughts running in the minds of people. He believes that the spiritual energy that will be created through these four Lakshchandi Mahayagya will vibrate through the cosmos and will help elevate the thoughts of people from self.

Let’s stand together with the Maha Mandeleshawr Param Pujya Swami Prakahr ji Maharaj and support his very motive because this esteemed gentleman is fighting for us, is struggling to make our lives better. The great Tapaswi is making innumerable sacrifices and facing hard-hitting challenges to make this place a healthy and joyful for the common man.
