What is Jaap yagna?
A japa yajna is a fire ceremony in which mantras are chanted to invoke the presence of the Lord. Usually during the ceremony many offerings are made to the fire. These offerings thank the Lord for what He has given us, and are a way of thanking for His grace.A japa yajna can be seen as the performance of a religious duty involving Agni, the sacrificial fire, with the chanting of the mantras. A yajna is generally an act of worship or showing reverence to God and Nature through invocations, prayers, songs, fire ritual, mantra recitation, and Holy offerings. It is the process of praying and making offerings to the Deities and other aspects of Divine Power through worship for their blessings for a happy, peaceful and prosperous life, or any other material or spiritual benefits that a person may desire.

It burns an individual's or a community's karma. Ultimately the real meaning of yajna is unity of God and humanity.
How to practice Mantra Jap?
Sit in your prayer area a little before the period you have decided to practice the Japa; try to become calm and remember your Guru (if you have one). After this, dedicate some other time thinking about the people or situation you're repeating the mantra for and imagine him/her/them completely free from their problems. Then let every thought go and start repeating the mantra; this can be done silently, whispered or aloud, with
japa mala or without. Maybe during repetition many thoughts will come and go through your mind; just don't worry about it; it's really a normal thing to have a perturbed mind. When you finish repeating the mantra simply sit for a few minutes calmly, and feel the effects and vibrations in your body and mind. Please, do not strain! You don't have to repeat continuously for 24 hours! Simply repeat for a period suitable for you! But please.. do not exaggerate! Mantras are powerful, so be careful.
