👉 QUERIES ABOUT ANUSTHANS (Part 5)

Q.10. What is the significance of Havan (Yagya) in an Anusthan?

Ans. Jap and Havan are basic ingredients of an Anusthan. After initiation (Dikcha) the worshipper (Sadhak) makes a total surrender to Gayatri and Yagya (his spiritual parents), which are inseparable. Invocation of both is done through specified procedures during the Anusthan.

Q.11. What are the number of ‘Ahutis’ prescribed for various types of Anusthans?

Ans. In ancient times, it was convenient to oblate one tenth of the total number of Japs in the Havan in an  Anusthan. In the present circumstances, it is sufficient to offer one hundredth number of ‘Ahutis’. The number thus amounts to :-
  
(a) Small Anusthan - 240 Ahutis.  
(b) Medium Anusthan - 1250 Ahutis.
(c) Big Anusthan - 24000 Ahutis.    The number may however, be varied depending on circumstances.

Q.12. How are the number of Ahutis distributed during the Yagya (Havan) in course of Anusthans?  
Ans. Havan may either be performed each day or on the last day of the Anusthan. Oblations required each day are equal to the number of ‘malas’, (cycles of rosary) whereas on the last day the number of ‘Ahutis’ should be equal to one hundredth of the total number of Japs (recitation of Mantras).
                          
When more than one person participates in the Havan, the cumulative number (number of persons multiplied by number of Ahutis) is counted. (e.g. 100 Ahutis by 5 persons will be considered as 500 Ahutis; for 240 Ahutis 6 persons may offer together 40 ‘Ahutis’ each etc.).
