Malika varnita (as described in Maalike by Sri Achyuta ~550 years ago) Yajna at Khandagiri hills. ++Details' page
This year Baba's Birthday (Bakul Amavasya; a new moon day per the lunar calender) falls on the 24-Dec-2011.
Baba has instructed through Pothi to observe this day, with obligations to his Gurus (PanchSakhaa). Accordingly, it will be performed in Garoi. Initia instruction is to make 10000 Ahuti
(obligations) with Pancha-Aatma Mantra (mantra of the five souls of the supreme Lord). If devotees can, they are hereby urged to meditate and chant the mantra, according to their capabilites.
A few round of chanting and one incense stick with Shradhaa (fondness and faith) will reach him- His ethereal presence is eternal. ++Details' page
Baba's Birthday, which is on the Bakul Amavasya (lunar calender) falls on the 4-Jan-2011.
Although after Gaya Shraadhha, it is not observed as corlofully as before, Baba has instructed Mata (in vision) to make ArnaDaana (offer food) to people of nearby villages.
Accordingly, it will be performed in Garoi and all the nearby villagers have been invited to come to Ashram on that day and have food. Devotees, like on any other day, may also remember Baba,
staying far or near. One incense stick with Shradhaa (fondness and faith), and a few minutes of your time, is enough- as Baba always used to say.
Jobra Ghat Yagna, 22-May-2010 to 27-May-2010. This is the one, the much-awaited Yagna where Anakaara test will be performed and Shri Achyuta will indirectly reveal himslef via the test. Devotees and believers are urged not to miss this one. ++Details of this planned Yagna, information added on 8-Mar-2010.
Shialidah Karma, West Bengal, India :
June end - July beginning, 2007. This was one of the most important and
much awaited karma, which was accomplished successfully in June-July,
2007. The mention about this Yagna is made 500 years back in Shri
Achyuta's malika, where Saint Arakhsita Das
was supposed to take part in his ethereal form and provide his spiritual
support and power for the future Yuga Karmas.
This Yagna's realization required some support from the locals (temples,
priests) of Sialdah, West Bengal and was somewhat difficult to manage.
However, with his grace, everything worked out well. Thanks to the
'friends' at Kali Ghat and Sialdah who helped us in sorting out this
issue and achieving our planned tasks. Yagna was held at 2 different
locations: a) near Kali Temple in Kali Ghat, and 2) in Sialdah
as was written in Malika. Along with the purpose of the Yagna, Mother
Kali's grace and blessing was also obtained in form of a 'Shakti'
(details cannot be elaborated) which was brought back to one of the
pitha's (spiritual location) of Shri Achyuta (we cannot provide more
details). This 'Shakti' will be a protector in the future Karma.
This Sialdah Yagna was a sequel to Jobra Yagna, Cuttack, 1995 (see
below). Amidst some confusion (or deliberate play of Achyuta), in the
final hour it was instructed by Tamrapothi
(copper oracle), to perform the Ahuti (offering) in "Water"
instead of "Ghee", same as in Jobra Yagna in Cuttack. A specific
mantra, obtained from pothi and given by
Achyuta, was applied to "Water" to lit the holy Yagna fire. -
Strange are Achyuta's ways, where fire burns in water instead of
getting extinguished!. Our beloved Baba
(Shri Buddhanath Das) left his mortal body
last year (Sep,2006) but he had his presence in this Yagna fully. On
occasions, he himself answered via the Taamrapothi also (when
there were some faults - dosha) and via other medium (we can't
disclose more now). A photo of him, which was chosen by him before, was
placed near the Yagnasthala (spot of Yagna) as his representative.
This game is a combined sport of Guru Achyuta and Shishya Ram Das (Buddhanath
Das), both playing from Shunya. They execute there tasks via
their devotees, remaining in Shunya and out-of-reach of any human
interference, but constantly protecting and blessing their devotees and
Below we provide links to few 'Amateur video clips' of Sialdah Yagna
where Jalahuti (water offered to fire) is performed. These are amateur
clips of very low resolution in '3GP' format - make sure to download the
required 'codecs' available free in net, for visualizing theses clips in
windows media player. Links to Sialdah Yagna video clips:

offered to fire 2)
clip two: water offered to fire with different view, 3)
clip three: in front of
mother Kali where a 'shakti' was received.
The follow-on to this Yagna will again be in Jobra Ghat (Tatwa bata),
Cuttack, when Mahapurusa Achyuta will instruct; the third Yagna will be
a sequel to this and the three together will complete the purpose of
this particular type of Yagna. - apart from several other ones.
Rath yatra at Garoi. The chariots were
taken to newly constructed Gundichha temple at Garoi (19 June 2004). The
festival was celebrated with the usual norms and ceremonies.
Rath yatra at Garoi. The chariots were
taken to newly constructed Gundichha temple at Garoi (1 July 2003). In
earlier years, the Rath Yatra was celebrated symbolically, but from this
year, proper chariots (though small) were constructed and the
car-festival was celebrated completely.
Jobra Yagna, Cuttack, Orissa, India (1995): The yagna of the five
elements. It was one of the rare yagnas, which invoked the power of the
five elements and various forms of God, demigods, and Rishi Munis. At
the end of the five days Yagna, the area witnessed the power of all the
five elements working strongly together with heavy wind, strong shower,
and sunlight. As per the instructions of the Oracle (Mahapurusa
Achyuta), using a specific mantra, the obligations were given with
mantra-energized water from the nearby Mahanadi river instead of butter
(ghee). The astonishing fact was witnessed by thousands. The Jobra-yagna
marked the beginning and towards the end another major yagna
(Anakaara test) will also be
performed there, where Shri Achyuta will reveal himself indirectly.
