Features of the Yagnya (yajna or sacrifice). This is the opportunity for all those who have not done even a single Yagnyam so far in their lives to start the Agnyādānam. By performing this we will be doing the Prāyahchitham of not doing the Yagnyam so far in our lives. This Agnyādānam is due to Gruha Agni which brings prosperity to the family and protects from all calamities. All families/individuals will be given opportunity to do this karma.
