The Pancha Maha Yagna are:
Deva Yagna (worship of Devas)
Pitr Yagna (worship of ones forefathers)
Manushya Yagna (worship of fellow humans)
Bhuta Yagna (worship of other beings)
Bramha Yagna (worship of knowledge)

Every Family should perform
the Pancha Maha Yagna everyday!!

Pancha Maha Yagna consists of the five yagnas to be performed by Grahastas or householders. People in other three stages of life Brahmacharya, Vanaprastha and Sanyasa depend on the fruitful completion of Pancha Maha Yagna by Grihastha. The five yagnas are Brahmayagna, Pitruyagna, Devayagna, Bhutayagnam and Manushayagna.

The Pancha Maha Yagna is also known by the names of Ahutam, Hutam, Prahutam, Brahmahutam and Prashitam.

Chanting and teaching the Vedas is Brahma Yagna.

Providing food and water to dead ancestors or Pitrus is Pitru Yagna.

Propitiating Devas through homa and yajna is Deva Yagnam
