The New Almanac - Importance and Significance of Dassera

The dawning of the new Golden Age (Satya Yuga) will be accompanied by the gradual adoption of a new almanac, a new calendar. Just as 25th December and Easter are important Christian festival dates in the west and Krishna's birthday and Buddha's birthday are important festivals for the Hindus and Buddhists respectively of the east, so too will certain dates assume greater significance in later times.

One of these dates of new significance will be the birthday of Kalki Avatar (Parama Sadguru Shree Gajánan Maháráj of Akkalkot, India). In 1918, the year of Shree's birth, this day fell on 17th May. May 17 is also the day on which Jesus delivered His sermon on the mount. This date is already assuming some significance in western countries at places where Shree's message of Agnihotra and Fivefold Path are followed. Also, December 25th, traditionally celebrated as Jesus's birthday, was the day in 1941 when Shree's universal mission was revealed to Him by Divine will.

Indore, India

I am assistant professor in the Indore Institute of Science and Technology in the civil engineering department. I am 22 years old. 2 years ago I came to know about Agnihotra from Dr. Ulrich Berk and I started practicing it. In the beginning I was not regularly doing it, but after some time I did.

Agnihotra at Freeform Arts Festival

We received the following story from Josh Maltby:

Freeform Arts Festival was founded in order to tie together the vast East Coast creative arts community and increase diversity in our local artistic landscape.

Freeform Arts is intended to serve as a connection point and a meeting place for the numerous cells and pockets of East Coast creative arts communities to unite and interact with each other. The goal is to create a more tightly knit, well-connected culture across the region.

The festival was held in Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, from June 12-16th. Dozens of workshops were held on numerous topics, from the practical, the creative, the spiritual to the bizarre. Agnihotra seemed a good fit.

My Visit to Australia and Om Shree Dham

We received the following story from Patty Powers:

In March, 2014 I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Australia and visit Om Shree Dham in the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia.

I found that the longer I stayed at Om Shree Dham, the more I felt its similarity to our Homa community in Madison, Virginia, as if the two were sister communities. The routine of morning and evening Agnihotra, Homas at 10 A.M., noon and 3 P.M., and an hour of Yajnya daily helped me feel right at home.

Peace Within the Storm



On April 26th, 2014, I woke up from the following dream:

I was sitting on a simple wooden bench in the middle of a small roofed boat with a few other people, sailing somewhat near some city's sea-shore. Suddenly the ocean showed its fierce strength and tidal waves began swallowing the city as well as all other vessels in the ocean. These were huge waves of water and mud, nothing to survive from!

I felt this was it, closed my eyes, focused on Shree's image and started saying ‘Om Shree.’

Agnihotra - An Amazing Journey

Agnihotra!

Where do I start? What an amazing journey and adventure.

Agnihotra is an experience that I have been looking for my entire adult life; I had no idea that it would come in the form of a FIRE! Agni landed on our doorstep just 3 months ago on March 14, 2014 when Lisa and Richard Powers came to our home to share with me and my husband about the practice.

Somayag 2015 Update

Dear friends,
We are pleased to announce that the next Somayag will be held at the Homa Therapy Goshala, Maheshwar India, between 3rd and 8th February, 2015.

This will be the sixth in the series of seven Somayags, the inspiration for which came from Shree Vasant Paranjpe.

For the past seven years a small group of people from various countries has kept this vision of conducting a series of seven Maha Somayags on the banks of the River Narmada in Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh, for the healing of our planet.

To date, five of these Somayags have been completed successfully. There are still two remaining.

This 6th Somayag is known as Atiratra. Amongst other benefits its purpose is to give nourishment and longevity to all living things on the planet.

Exciting Developments in Bhrugu Aranya Eco-village, Poland


I am almost at the end of my stay here in Bhrugu Aranya. I have witnessed the results of the inspired continuous effort of maintaining Yajnyas and the dynamic interchange on the part of each member of this close-knit community.

Conscious effort in self-study, ongoing community meetings, sharing areas of responsibility according to the nature of each individual member, and dedication to improving areas of communication between members has resulted in the blossoming of a well-honed working Homa-Organic eco-community.

The added benefit of following exact Guidance given through Paravti from Masters and Light Beings, has created a haven of peace, love and Light which can be felt by everyone who steps foot in this place.

Agnihotra - Greatest Material Aid


"When we are born in a human frame, everything that is required to make a human life fruitful is automatically endowed to us."

This is how the great Master, Shree Vasant, began His introductory talk on Agnihotra and Homa Therapy in Sydney, Australia, July 1989.

Shree Vasant continues:

Agnihotra in the Harijan colonies of Kharagpur, West Bengal, India

In February, 2014 Abhay Paranjpe and Sanjay and Manisha Patil (photo right) visited the birthplace of Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj in Kharagpur, West Bengal.

Two families (the families of Gauri Shankar and Subodh Das) maintain the practice of Agnihotra in the Railway Quarter where Sonamata (mother of Parama Sadguru) used to stay with her father when she visited Kharagpur.

This Railway Quarter is quite close to the colony of Harijans (so-called 'Untouchables') in whose houses the great Saint Upasani Baba was residing in the year 1913. Part of His mission was to eradicate the curse of Untouchability which was destroying the fabric of Hindu society. Sonamata used to go with her father to this Harijan colony to feed and care for the poor. It was there at the age of thirteen, that Sonamata met her Guru, Upasani Baba. Five years later on May 17th 1918 she gave birth to the Light of the World.
