This is well documented & mentioned in our Shastras (The Holy Vedic books).

Whoever performs Ashvamedha Yagnya the entire worldly resources are easily available and the doors to Heaven too open where Lord Vishnu himselfstands and blesses. Such a personenjoys all the success, power & wealth at his command to become a King in his next birth.

That is Ashvamedha is validated as a symbol of Nation’s peace & prosperity.
“Raja va aish Yagnyaanaan yadashvamedhah”
That is Ashvamedha is the King of all the Yagnyas.

The evidence of the origin can be found in “Taittiriya Samhita” (5-4-12)
The Ashvamedha Yagnya procedure is outlined in “Satyashad Shroutsutra” This is an Emblematic Yagnya and in Rigveda it has been mentioned multiple times. In Rigveda Ashvamedha Yagnya has also been referred to as Yama, Aditya, Trit and Soma (r. 1-163-3)

In Rigveda, one can find Ashvamedha Yagnya’s description with lots of enthusiasm and all relevantdetails. (r. 1-162-20-21)

ASHVAMEDHA YAGNYA SUBSTANTIATION

The mention of Ashvamedha Yagnya accomplished by King Dashrath and Lord Shri Ramchandraji is there in “Ramayana” and “Ashvamedha-Gemini (Holy Puraan book)

In 2nd Century B.C. during Brahman reawakening period the Brahman King Pushyamitra of “Shringa Dynasty” twice conducted the Ashvamedha Yagnya. Introduction of the same is found in the Seal depicting Ashvamedha activities & gestures.

In South the “Chalukyaas” and “Dravidas” and in North the “Aryan Kings” kept alive the tradition of Ashvamedha Yagnya.

In Great King Yudhishthir’s“Ashvamedha Yagnya” Lord Shri Krishna rendered his service in the dining hall by picking up the dirty dishes (plates/pattals), Since then the pot used to collect & keep dirty dishes (plates/pattals) is still called “Krishnapaatra” (Krishna Pot)

So if Lord Shri Krishna himself can offer the service of picking up of dirty plates then one can very well understand the value& greatness of the “Ashvamedha Yagnya”

LEGISLATION OF ASHVAMEDHA YAGNYA

In reality Ashvamedha’s meaning is “Ashva + Medha”

A yagnya, when performed helps one sharpen & strengthen his memory power & speed just like a horse.

The chanting of various Mantras during the Ashvamedha Yagnya are so pious & effective that the one who performsthe Yagnya his fortunes start changing for better by merely listening to it. The organization of the Ashvamedha Yagnya is over a period of two days, this is rare and happens once in many centuries and performed by blessed souls.

Upon completion of oblation of the Ashvamedha Yagnya symbolically a horse is made to run/gallop which gives evidence & signifies the fact that like the horsefortune of those performing the yagnya will rise continuously.

ASHVAMEDHA YAGNYA DEDICATED TO THE NATION

“Shreeh vai Rashtram vai Ashvamedhah I
Ashvamedhyaajah sarv disho vijayai bhavati II
Ashvamedha Yagnya is considered as a sign of a Nation’s happiness & prosperity. The one who performs Ashvamedha Yagnya is victorious & will attain the pinnacle of glory.

“Ashvamedhah sarv Yagnyanaam raja I
Ashvamdehah Mahayagnya paavan sarv papanaam II
Ashvamedha Yagnya is the King of all Yagnyas. Ashvamedha Yagnya can rid one from all the sins as it is the most pious Mahayagnya.

BENEFITS

RESULT OF DOING ASHVAMEDHA MAHAYAGNYA

In this Universe every appropriate/inappropriate act manifests in some or other one or more appropriate/inappropriate result.
“Karma pradha vishva kari raakhaa” I
Nobody can stay without doing an act/karma so its result is also sure to manifest. The act of Yagnya is unique.
“Yagyo vai shreshtatam karm” I
Yagnya is the best karma (act) in the whole universe

Hence the result is also bound to be the best.
In Vedas there is a mention of many types of Yagnya and amongst all of them “Ashvamedha Mahayagnya” has been mentioned as the greatest. The Shastras are full of the mention of the benefits of Ashvamedha Mahayagnya. In Ashvalayan Shrout Sutra there is a statement which says that a man who in this world wants all the things in life, wants to be victorious in everything and wants all the riches & abundant prosperity, that person has the right/authority to do “Ashvamedha Mahayagnya”

IMPORTANCE OF ASHVAMEDHA MAHAYAGNYA

Many times we do see people around us that are not pleasant, presentable, don’t have attractive personality and are not from any high/noble clan and yet they are very well to do, prosperous and have all the worldly pleasures just like a King.

This can be a surprise and one can wonder how is this is possible, but the supreme truth isthat this is only possible if the person has performed Ashvamedha Yagnya in his previous birth. Whoever performs Ashvamedha Mahayagnya, everything becomes easy for him and all the resources in the world are available to him.

Every second we are working towards making our lives full of happiness, sometimes we succeed and sometime we don’t. But we don’t get tired and continue with our efforts. If we want our next birth to be full of happiness andperform one Ashvamedha Yagnya today, it is sure that we will get success at every step & stage and there is no doubt that it will leadus to a blissful & privileged life in the next birth. 

SPECIALTY OF ASHVAMEDHA MAHAYAGNYA

In Ashvamedha Mahayagnya it is important to have elephants and horses because in Shastras the “Elephant” is considered as the symbol of “auspiciousness” and the “Horse” is considered as the symbol of”Speed & Power”

The performer of Yagnya comes riding the Elephant & Horse to the pious Yagnyavedi (where Yagnya Hom takes place). This indicates that the performer of Ashvamedha Mahayagnya is akin to a King, manifesting the sentiment of “As is the King So are the Subjects” with constant sound of conch shells, wooden drums, dundubhi (a musical instrument likekettle drum) used to extol the glory of the king. All this is important to awaken the sentiments of regality in the hearts& minds of the performer of the Yagnya so that he just feels like a King and without hesitation in totality imbibes the supremely mysterious sentiments of the “Ashvamedha Mahayagnya”.
