Manmohanjit Cheema, Principal of “Holy Child English School” Dhule, Maharashtra, India

     I started Agnihotra 12 to 13 years ago. However, after participating in a Somayag several years ago, I have been doing Agnihotra regularly.
I am enjoying doing Agnihotra every morning, be it winter, rainy season or summer.
I even carry the Agnihotra equipment with me when I go on a trip.
My wife and daughter do the sunset Agnihotra.
 In our school, we have 425 plus students from junior kindergarten up to 10th standard.
Our family lives on the school grounds and since we do Agnihotra every day, there is a benefit for all the children.

Somayag 2018 – Kharagpur

     In Kharagpur, West Bengal, India, birthplace of Maha Shree (Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj), a Jyotiruktha Somayag was performed in May 2018 to celebrate Maha Shree’s 100th birth anniversary.

The Yajaman, in this case, Achal Apte, represents the element of fire during the Somayag. Only someone who performs Tretagni Agnihotra regularly can become a Yajaman. He carries this Tretagni fire to the place where Somayag is to be performed and from this (Tretagni fire) the Somayag is started. Continue reading “Somayag 2018 – Kharagpur”

Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Animals – Bees

In Agriculture, there are three helpers from the animal kingdom.
First helper is the cow. Without cows Organic Farming is difficult and Homa Organic Farming is not possible.
Then we have the bees and the earthworms.
About cows we already have talked, so let us now concentrate on the role of bees in agriculture and all Nature.
Of course honey bees are important for producing honey which is a very nutritious substance which also has a lot of healing applications. Even more important though is the role of bees in pollination.

Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Animals – Cows

     In this series of articles we have covered so far the effects of Agnihotra on our environment (atmosphere, soil, and water resources) and also the use of Agnihotra in agriculture / horticulture.
Now let us look into the effect Agnihotra has on animals and how it can be used for animal husbandry. The first animal which comes to mind are cows.
Cows supply us with cow dung and milk from which we prepare cow’s ghee. Without cows there would be no Agnihotra, no Vedic Yajnyas. Can cows also benefit from Agnihotra?

Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Agriculture – Biodiversity (Part II)

      How does Homa Organic Farming help to calm down this “storm on the horizon”, to bring Nature back to Harmony, to restore biodiversity?
Reports from farmers and scientific studies give some answers.
Let us start with an observation Rita and Thomas Hirt made on their Homa Farm in Rippistal, Switzerland. When they started the farm one big problem was that the meadows were widely covered with a tall growing weed, the broadleaf dock (Rumex obtusifolius). A few of these plants are o.k., they can even be used as medicine. But as these meadows are used for cows who graze there in summer and hay is made for winter, it was a problem that large areas were covered by broadleaf dock, making these areas useless.
All neighbouring farmers had the same problem – but they used herbicides to control the broadleaf dock. Not possible on a Homa Farm – and as we have seen this may solve one problem, but create more other problems as it brings Nature more away from Harmony.
Interesting what happened after some time of performing the Homa fires and spraying Agnihotra Ash water: Green dock beetles (gastroidea viridula) arrived in large number and controlled the broadleaf dock.
These beetles were not found on the meadows of neighbouring farms. This is an example how on a Homa Farm biodiversity is restored and automatically beneficial insects arrived. This also reminds on the experience which Abhay Mutalik Desai had on his farm where woolly aphid was controlled by two natural predators – Micromus igorotus and Dipha aphidivora (see Homa Health Newsletter # 136).

Greendock beetles arrive in large numbers.

Finishing broadleaf dock. Continue reading “Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Agriculture – Biodiversity (Part II)”
