The Five Brahmins (Hindu Priests) of a Yajana:

This is my article about the five brahmins (Hindu Priests) of a yajana.
Whenever a yajana is conducted there are always five flags which are black, green, red, white, and yellow.
These five flags represent the roles of the five brahmins. As in the olden days in India they would always have five brahmins conducting the yajana. One brahmin would chant the mantras, another would correct the mantras that the brahmin is chanting, a third brahmin would the security guard so that the yajana isn’t interrupted, a forth brahmin would do the hawan (fire ritual prayer), and the final brahmin would be meditating.
Unfortunately in the twenty first century we cannot have brahmins to conduct the yajana. So instead to represent these five Brahmins we use the different coloured flags.
