Beneficial Effects of Agnihotra on Brain Waves

Homa-Hof Heiligenberg, Germany

Agnihotra has a significant effect on brain waves; it relaxes and can generate such peaceful states of consciousness that are otherwise detectable in deep meditation only!

Agnihotra Purifies Water

A simple experiment: We sterilized two bottles of water, kept one in the lab and one in an Agnihotra hut. After three days we brought the bottle back from the Agnihotra hut into the lab. Then one drop of contaminated water was added to each bottle, and then count of coliform bacteria was measured for three days.

Agnihotra on Bali

Robert Bagnall

Bali is a place where much of the ancient ways are still honored and practiced, yet much has also been forgotten, and the westernization of the culture seems to be gaining momentum among the youth here. As Smart Phones and the internet are having a major impact on the culture, the ancient knowledge of the Vedas has also returned and today we are blissfully witnessing a resurgence of interest in Agnihotra by locals and foreign visitors who come to Bali to partake of the beauty and reconnect with nature.

Tips for Practicing Agnihotra Correctly

     Following are answers to the most frequently asked questions by people beginning the Agnihotra practice.
     It is important to practice this technique correctly in order to receive all its wonderful benefits:

* The shape, size and measurements of the pyramid are specific for Homa Therapy.
* The Agnihotra Mantra needs to be chanted at the exact time to the second specified in the time table.
* People who perform Agnihotra or any other Homa need to remove their shoes (do not place your feet on top the shoes either). Also, people who just participate in a Homa Fire are asked to remove their shoes during this healing process. It is something similar to ‘grounding’ used in electricity.

Agnihotra and Homa Fires Give Protection against Eathquakes and Other Natural Disasters

         Mrs. Rocío de Obando wrote:
" Due to the earthquake that we experienced, we asked the Agnihotris of Ecuador to intensify the practice of all the Homa fires we know, especially Agnihotra.
  
 The day of the quake, we were in Huaquillas, El Oro (in the hacienda of Mayor Vivar) expanding the knowledge of the sacred fires. It was Mr. José Yaguana, who invited us. From that day on, we meet at the home of Marianita Pazmiño, at the River Club (invited by Mr. Paul Segura), in the Iluminaris Institute with its Director Jimmy Paredes and various private places to help the atmosphere of our beloved planet. In our home, we are practicing daily one hour of Tryambakam Homa. Let's stay connected through the healing fires of Homa Therapy. Om Shree Om."

      Daniel writes:
"Dear Abel, after making the 3-week trial, you proposed to me, I have to tell you something:
       The day after your departure, I got up to do Agnihotra. During that day I was looking for work, hoping that something comes to me soon. Two days earlier, I had been in an interview, where things really went wrong.
After finishing Agnihotra, I checked my email in order to see whether I had received any proposal for work and I actually found one. It was an email asking for more information on my experience.

Effect of Agnihotra on Air Pollution

We had a lot of experiments which show that Agnihotra reduces pathogenic particles in the air.

We did a new experiment in March in North Maharashtra University in Jalgaon (one hour away from Tapovan), measuring particulate matter in the air plus SOx and NOx using a High Volume Air Sampler.

See results below.

It was expected that during and right after Agnihotra there would be more particles in the air; any fire produces some smoke.

More Experiments with Agnihotra

More experiments regarding the effect of Agnihotra on purification of polluted air.
One was done at Vikram University in Ujjain, M.P., India, the other in North Maharashtra University in Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India.
Still waiting for the results of the Ujjain experiment - but the results of the Jalgaon experiment are there, showing that particulate matter is reduced by Agnihotra (although the count is little higher during and right after Agnihotra - which is expected, we are adding some smoke to the air). Same with SOx and NOx.

Homa Therapy Helps Children

How to help children with Homa Therapy?

Parvati Rosen-Bizberg explains:
Agnihotra has a calming effect on children. Hyperactive Children respond to Agnihotra immediately and, with time, they become much more calm and focused. The Agnihotra has very positive effects on the nervous system and also assists with respiratory disorders. Especially asthma! My son was raised in a Homa household and was always a calm, alert and kind child. Now all children are very similar, children are naturally creative and peaceful. It's amazing how Agnihotra works wonderfully with the health and well-being of children.
