is a healing fire ritual from the ancient Ayur-Veda. It is a process of purifying the atmosphere through fire prepared in a copper pyramid tuned to the biorhythm of sunrise and sunset. Anyone in any walk of life can do Agnihotra and heal the atmosphere in his/her own home.

Agnihotra is performed all around the world by young and old. 

 Agnihotra is the 'solution for pollution' whether atmospheric, environmental, physiological, emotional, mental or spiritual.  

Agnihotra restores balance wherever needed, naturally.

 Agnihotra is a process involving quantum super-science and Grace. It is for us, now.

AGNIHOTRA is a gift given to all humanity which resets and balances the energy cycles of Earth, and fills the atmosphere with vibrations of Love. So simple, even children perform Agnihotra.

Thousands of people all over the world have experienced that Agnihotra reduces stress, leads to greater clarity of thought, improves overall health, gives one increased energy, and makes the mind more full of love. It is a great aid to drug and alcohol de-addiction.  Agnihotra also nourishes plant life and neutralizes harmful radiation and pathogenic bacteria. It harmonizes the functioning of Prana (life energy) and can be used to purify water resources.

Through materials vaporized in the Agnihotra fire, extremely nutritive and fragrant substances are released, completely restoring and re-balancing all elements and life forms, allowing a superlative state of growth and creation to exist, just as Nature intended.

Sitting in Agnihotra atmosphere, you can experience greater emotional and mental balance, physical health, peace and spiritual support.



Agnihotra - Homa - Yajnya

Homa and Yajnya are Sanskrit terms that have similar meaning. Yajnya is the technical term from the Vedic science of bioenergy denoting the process of removing the toxic conditions of the atmosphere through the agency of fire.  Yajnya also replenishes the nutrients that pollution robs from our environment,

Homa Therapy is totally a revealed science as old as creation. Over time this knowledge was lost but it is now being resuscitated to give people guidance about how to correct the polluted conditions we find ourselves in on the planet today. 

The central idea in Homa Therapy is:

You heal the atmosphere and the healed atmosphere heals you.

The most basic Homa is called AGNIHOTRA

Purify Your Environment

 Performance of Agnihotra on a regular daily basis establishes the healing energies necessary for a healthy environment.

The process involves preparing a small fire in a copper pyramid of fixed size and putting some grains of rice and ghee (clarified unsalted butter) into fire exactly at sunrise and sunset accompanied by the chant of two simple mantras. You can practice Agnihotra in your apartment, garden, office or car. It takes only a few minutes of your time daily.

Existence is Vibration 

 Sanskrit is a language of vibration. We can make changes in the atmosphere with Sanskrit mantras. 

Exactly at sunrise or sunset the mantras are spoken and a small amount of rice and ghee is given to the fire. There is not just energy from the fire; subtle energies are created by the rhythms and mantras. These energies are generated or thrust into the atmosphere by fire. This, in addition to the qualities of the materials burned, produces the full effect of this healing HOMA (healing fire). Much healing energy emanates from the Agnihotra pyramid.

Bio-Energetics of Agnihotra

Tremendous amounts of energy are gathered around the Agnihotra copper pyramid just at Agnihotra time. A magnetic-type field is created, which neutralizes negative energies and reinforces positive energies. Therefore, a positive pattern is created by one who does Agnihotra merely by his/her performance. 

Agnihotra purifies the atmosphere of pollutants,  neutralizes harmful radiation and mitigates EMF pollution.

Agnihotra and Plants

The ghee is thrust into the atmosphere and attaches itself to the molecular structure of the soil, allowing the soil to retain more moisture. Plants grown in Agnihotra atmosphere are better able to withstand droughts. Agnihotra causes a change in the cellular structure of the plant which sends more nutrients to the fruit of the plant and less to the leaves, stem and roots. Many people have found that the size, taste, texture and yield of fruits and vegetables grown in Agnihotra atmosphere are superior. Performance of Agnihotra in the garden reduces pest problems and organic gardening and farming are made easier by using Homa (healing fire) techniques.

Health Benefits of Agnihotra

Agnihotra renews the brain cells, revitalizes the skin and purifies the blood. It is the holistic approach to life. Many people who are normally allergic to smoke experience a healing effect by sitting in Agnihotra atmosphere. The healing effects of Agnihotra are locked in the resultant ash. Thousands of people in different parts of the world have experienced wonderful healings of all types of ailments by using Agnihotra ash.

Every Part of Agnihotra is Medicinal

The ash remaining in the pyramid is powdered and used for healing in every way conceivable: mixed with ghee and applied topically; in water for purifying; ingested to restore balanced health; as a vegetable wash to remove chemicals and radioactivity; made into eyedrops, etc..

Agnihotra ash is also used for animal health, beekeeping, and in the agricultural application called Homa Farming.
