What is HOMA Therapy?

HOMA is a Sanskrit word used here synonymously with YAJNYA. 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. This means healing and purifying of the atmosphere with fire as the medium. The central idea in HOMA Therapy is:

You heal the atmosphere and the healed atmosphere heals you.

Effect of Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on Seed Germination

SCIENTIFIC ASPECTS OF
AGNIHOTRA

By Dr. Ulrich Berk

Effect of
Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on Seed Germination

           Earlier we have covered beneficial effects of Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on air, soil, and water resources, as well as on radioactive radiation. As environmental pollution naturally also affects plants as it affects us humans, it can be expected that both Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash have beneficial effects on the growth and health of plants as well as their resistance against pests.

Agnihotra and Radioactivity

SCIENTIFIC ASPECTS OF AGNIHOTRA

Agnihotra and Radioactivity

When Agnihotra is performed, the Agnihotra smoke gathers particles of harmful radiation in the atmosphere and, on a very subtle level, neutralizes their radioactive effect. Nothing is destroyed, merely changed.

Effects of Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on Soil

Earlier we had discussed how Agnihotra purifies our atmosphere and the water resources. Now let us have a look into the effect of Agnihotra on soil. Mostly people are not aware of how important soil is – although it is obvious that our lives depend on the thin layer of topsoil as we all feed on plants (even non-veg people do indirectly), and most plants need soil for growing.

How Can Agnihotra Help People who Live in Cities?

Jessica Auza
Lima, Peru

Certainly city life can be comfortable and quite convenient in different ways and fun. Usually people have their family, friends, jobs and schools there. Of course, also there can be many challenges. Whether one is aware or not, one has to deal with rising levels of pollution, life occurring at an accelerated pace, health issues, increasing family and job responsibilities, violence and security concerns, emotional upheaval and much stress, to name a few. All this I have seen happening often, as I was born in a big city and lived in big cities most of my life, in Peru and in the United States.

If you are going through some type of struggle in any of these areas; if you enjoy living in the city but are willing to further improve the quality of your life; or if you would like to do something very simple, yet significant, for yourself, your loved ones and at the same time for the environment, AGNIHOTRA can help you very much.

Purification of the Atmosphere by Agnihotra

Purification of the Atmosphere by Agnihotra

The main statement of Homa Therapy is: Agnihotra heals the atmosphere – and the healed atmosphere heals the environment, plants, animals, and humans. How can we understand that statement in terms of modern science? And then, as a second step, see whether modern scientific research can either confirm or refute such statements?
