“ Dharma projita kaitavo atra paramo nirmatsaranam satam vedyam vastavam atra vastuh shivatam tapatrayah unmoolanam” All the three types of miseries are destroyed by pure devotional service to LORD KRISHNA INTRO-Srimad Bhagavatam
In this Kali Yuga, it is difficult, or even impossible, to perform the yajnas the way they were performed in the previous yugas. Therefore, What do we do then ???????
We should perform Japa Yajna or Mantra Meditation.
(However, Meditation as described in the Bhagavad-Gita is quite difficult to practice in this Yuga, because it is difficult to control the mind. This was confirmed by Arjuna, 5,000 years ago, when the world was devoid of the turbulence, which is part of life now!)
“………… .Of yajnas I am the chanting of the holy names (Japa), and of immovable things I am the Himalayas ” Bhagavad Gita - Ch.10 Txt 25
