Dear members,
  As many of you by now would have come to know, in our country states like 
Rajasthan, Gujarat, AP are facing very severe drought conditions that has so far 
led to death of people and many cattles. A manifestation of mother nature's 
fury. The reason is said to be monsoon failure in these regions in the last 
season. In this regard I recollect some 15 yrs. back when I was a kid, back in the 
agraharam where we were staying then, prohits conducted a yag~nam to bring rain. I 
don't remember exactly all the pujas they did. But I remember they immersed the 
deity's mUla murthy in water fully for whole day while the pUja and veda 
recitation was done. The very next day it rained without fail to everybody's 
  Even in this present situation, prohits in those states and the neighbouring 
states can come forward and conduct a yag~nam to bring rain which will help the 
mankind and cattles.
  Do Vaishnavas see anything wrong in this notion ? Let Sriman Narayana's 
compassion shower in these regions and benefit the living beings there soon.


Was the salesman clueless? Productopia has the answers.
