Amazing... I just read this and posting for all of you to see. The ancient Hindu ceremonies named "yagyas" could be called a "scientific" kind of prayer because they are able to influence something directly. Yagyas are also used as a remedy measure in the Jyotish astrology system, to shield from karmic situations which are on its way to an individual.
BTW In the Vedic tradition, the Sun represents the quality of administration and government, which was a quality that needed improvement back then!
Near the end of World War II, 2000 Hindu priests and ten thousand of their followers gathered outside New Delhi by the sacred river Jumna to pray for world peace. For 10 days, the murmur of their prayers and the smoke of their fires rose like incense from the great thatch-and-bamboo pandal build on the plain. For ten days, austere Brahmins under the leadership of His Holiness Shri Jagadguru Shankaracharya chanted a master verse from the 3000 year old Vedas: “The sun is the centre of the entire universe; all intelligence, all energy, all health are derived from the sun.” In all, during this Mahayagya or great sacrifice, more than 10,000,000 prayers of praise and supplication were recited. It was probably the greatest demonstration of mass praying in modern times, and, as reverend Hindus believe, helped to defeat the Axis powers. -Life Magazine, 1944

That is amazing Demi, I had no idea this ever happened, so thank you for passing this on :-) Out of interest, prior to the Nazi plans for the invasion of Britain, a coven of witches in the New Forest did a ritual to hold back the Germans. They raised a 'cone of power' to prevent the troops from crossing the English channel. Apparently bad weather came out of nowhere and thwarted Hitler's plans. There must have been a lot of 'light workers' at that time praying for peace and doing other magical intentions, stories that few of us know about today. :-)
I’m astounded by people who want to ‘know’ the universe when it’s hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.
Wow. Thank you for sharing this with us. That is a wonderful story, as is the one that Liz shared about the coven doing their defensive part as well. It is great to see that even within the vast darkness that was bred during that time that there was still a lot of light coming up against it. Which is what we all need to keep doing....bringing light to the darkness that was created back then. At least people like the ones mentioned here gave everyone a good headstart in nurturing that balancing light.
