Abstract: Vedic knowledge states that yajñas have effects on the environment and people. Yajñas of various kinds are elaborated in the Vedic literature. Among Soma yajñas, the Apthoryama Yajña is the chief and the largest. From 17 - 26 April 2007, an Apthoryama yajña was organized in Bangalore and evaluation of its effects on the environment, society and human beings was encouraged. Our study used a Random Event Generator (REG) placed 12 m from the site of the yajña to evaluate its effects on the consciousness-field. Significant increases in REG values were found on several occasions on all days, compared to control days with no yajña. Particularly significant changes occurred on the following days: the second day during Vedic chanting (p<0.001); the third day on four occasions, Agni Prasthapana (p<0.05), Soma Kriya (p<0.05), Shainchitti (p<0.001) and Pravargya (p<0.01); the fifth day during Pravargya (p<0.05); the sixth day during Subramanyam Ahwan (p<0.001) and Garun Chayana (p<0.05); the eighth day during Garun Cayana (p<0.05), Agni udbhava (p<0.05) and Subramanyam Ahwan (p<0.05); and the ninth day during Soma yajña (p<0.05) and the final Puja (p<0.05).
