No special sacrificial altars or priests are necessary to perform Yajnas and Yagas in their true spirit. The external Yajna is only a reflection of the internal Yajna. Through the performance of the external Yajna by rituals, religious practices and righteous deeds, the inner Self is purified. At the time of Poornahuti (final oblations), many sacred and fragrant articles are offered in the sacrificial fire. Precious gems like diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc., are also put into the fire. Even pure silk cloth is offered. The significance of this is that man should offer to the Divine his pure unselfish heart and such noble qualities as Sathya, Dharma, Santhi, Prema, compassion and equal love for all beings.
