Pundit Sharma C.S. Samavedula is the founder of the Vedic Yagya Center.
He is a 6th generation Sama Veda pundit and also a Shri Vidya Upasaka.

Pundit Samavedula Sharma has been performing Vedic yagyas for clients
throughout the world for over 20 years.

His father is Brahma Shri Samavedula Trinadha Lakshmi Narasimha Murty, a
Sama Veda Pandit and an expert in Shri Vidya (Shri Vidya Upasaka – A
pundit who performs Shri Vidya pujas and yagyas).

His grandfather, the late Brahma Shri Samavedula Narayana Shastri was a
renowned Sama Veda Pundit and received an award from the President of
India. He was employed by the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam in Andhra
Pradesh, India.

Pundit Samavedula Sharma began his training in the Vedas at the young
age of seven, under the tutelage of his grandfather.
When Pundit Sharma was fifteen, his grandfather became a professor
(acharya) at Shri Sarva Raya Veda Patha Shala, a Pundit training school
in Andhra Pradesh, India, and it opened up an avenue for Pundit Sharma
to enhance and extend his Vedic education.

After twelve years of study, Pundit Sharma received his Master’s Degree
in Vedic Studies in 1990 and the title Ganapati Pundit was bestowed upon
him. During this time, besides learning the Vedas, he also learned the
grammar and other aspects of Sanskrit and the Art and Science of
performance of different kinds of Pujas and Yagyas. In addition, he
completed his secular studies through the 12th grade.

Pundit Sharma studied two more years and learned the Ashta Brahmana and
Grihya Sutras under the tutelage oflate Shri Shankar Shrauti Gal, who
was a professor (acharya) at the Veda Mimansa Anusandhana Kendra school
in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India.
After such extensive and in-depth education, Pundit Sharma became a
professor (acharya) of Sama Veda at Maharishi Veda Vigyana Vishwa Vidya
Peeth, a charitable trust that trains Vedic Pundits throughout India. He
rendered services to the community as a professor from 1991 to 1995.

Pundit Sharma wanted to spread the knowledge of Vedas far and wide; this
prompted him to travel abroad.

He served as a Vedic priest from 1995 to 1997 at the Vishnu Temple
(Voice of Vedas) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; in 1998 at Shiva Vishnu
Temple in Cleveland, Ohio; from 1999 to 2001, as the chief Vedic priest
at the Hindu Mandir of Quebec in Montreal, Quebec, Canada; and in 2001,
as the officiating chief priest at the Maharudra yagya in Atlanta,
Georgia, which was performed by 50 Vedic Pundits.

In 2002, Pundit Sharma founded the Vedic Yagya Center.

Pundit Sharma has also assisted in the founding, organizing, fundraising
and building of many temples in North America, including the Austin
Hindu Temple, in Austin, Texas, where he served as the head Vedic
priest, and the Sri Devi Mandir in Fairfield, Iowa.

Pundit Sharma’s grandfather, the late Brahma Shri Samavedula Narayana
Shastri, towards end of his life, instructed Pundit Sharma that he
should start a Vedic school to preserve the Vedas and that through God's
Grace, channels will open up for him to do so.
The Vydic Yagya Center was founded in 2002 by Pundit Sharma C.S.
Samavedula, a 6th generation Sama Veda Pundit

The Center has facilities near Vijaywada, Andhra Pradesh, India (close
to the holy Krishna River and Divine Mother Kanaka Durga Temple) and in
Fairfield, Iowa, U.S.A.

Vydic Yagya Center employs a core group of over 20 Vedic Pundits
representing all four branches of the Vedas. We are proud to say that
these Pundits are experts in different kinds of Yagyas, Homams and
Pujas, including Sri Vidya Navavarana Pujas, Maha Vidya Homas, Surya
Upasana, and Maha Chandi Yagyas.

Large Yagyas sometimes utilise services of as many as 100 to 150
Pundits. Our Center is resourceful and is able to provide expert Vedic
Pundits as needed even in such large numbers. Yagya of such a magnitude
just took place in Japan.

The Center offers to Individuals, homes, businesses, Corporations,
Consortiums, Firms, Institutions, Associations, Agencies, and
Societies, the most authentic and effective traditional Vedic Yagyas
(sacred ceremonies), Homams (ancient fire ceremonies), and Pujas as
prescribed in the Vedas and Shastras, the holy Indian scriptures.

By utilizing the sound vibrations of specific Sanskrit Mantras, these
Vedic ceremonies can help alleviate many problems of our modern times.

All Pundits of the Center begin their day with meditation, followed by
performance of the Rudrabishekam and then only start their daily duties.

Pundit Sharma and his Vedic Pundits have traveled all over India, Canada
and the U.S., as well as to many other countries in the world, including
New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, and England,
performing their services.

The Center also provides Vedic astrology (Jyotish) consultations for
individuals and businesses; Vastu consultations and Vastu rectification
yagyas, as well as Vastu designs for temples, homes, and businesses.
Proper Vastu harmonizes the positive flow of energy in buildings.
