A six-day prayer event called Ati Rudra Maha Yagna that originated from India will be held for the first time in Kuala Lumpur next month.

The world’s third Ati Rudra Maha Yagna, considered by followers of religious guru Sathya Sai Baba as the highest form of worship to Lord Shiva, will be held in Batu Caves from Aug 7 to Aug 12.

Sri Subramaniam Swamy temple chairman Datuk R. Nadarajah said this would be the first time that the event had been held outside India.

“We are expecting about 5,000 participants in the six days,” he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur recently.

Organising chairman Jullius Tan, who is also Persatuan Sathya Sai Nivas chairman, added the ceremony was to promote universal peace through the finding of oneself in meditation, mantras and prayers.

Also present at the press conference was former Malaysia Hindu Sangam president Datuk A. Vaithilingam.

The occasion will see 140 priests conducting the chants. There will also be cultural songs and other performances in the evening.
