The Divine Life Society Maryland has received numerous e-mails from around the world expressing gratitude for organising this auspicious Japa Yajna of the sacred Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra, and The Divine Life Society Headquarters fully endorses this noble undertaking. The root cause of all fear, sorrow and suffering, religious intolerance, terrorism and war is ahamkara or ego, which separates us from God and our fellow human beings. Coming togetheróto sincerely and earnestly pray for the welfare of allónot only benefits the world at large, but is a powerful weapon against our own selfishness and ego. Constant repetition of such prayer and the harbouring of positive thoughts towards all can bring about an inner transformation in the one who prays, so that one becomes a centre of peace and goodwill that radiates to all beings. Chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra will also be immensely beneficial to the participating individual devotee and can also finally grant liberation from the ego foreverówhich is the highest good than can be offered to all of mankind. We therefore hope that all Branches and devotees will fully participate to make this 5th Japa Yajna a grand success.
