Agnihotra in Delhi

Before leaving Mother India, we spent a few days in New Delhi with Mother Saroj Malik and her daughter, Akanksha, who was our wonderful hostess. Both organized meetings and presentations for Homa Therapy.
Mrs. Umang, neighbor of Akanksha and now Agnihotra practitioner, also took initiatives to inform people about Homa Therapy in their home and workplace.

Agnihotra Goes to Sewadham Ashram, Ujjain, MP, India

            We had the honor of meeting Mr. Sudhir Bhai Goyal, through Sarvajit Paranjpe, during the Somayag in early February 2017 at the Maheshwar Goshala. He invited us to visit his Ashram in Ujjain and teach Agnihotra and the Homa Therapy Fires. The time had come to follow the call of this humble man.
      Guided by Mrs. Vidya Didwania we arrived at the Sewadham Ashram.

Effects of Homa Organic Farming on Soil Quality

       In my previous blog I quoted reports of FAO (the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) saying that farming only 60 years of farming would be left if conventional farming would continue like today.
Also we quoted Shree Vasant Paranjpe stating that the soil has to be rejuvenated first by Homa Therapy, thus creating a healthy micro-flora and micro-fauna. This is the claim based on Vedic Knowledge. To which extent could this claim be validated by modern agricultural sciences?

Purification of Water by Agnihotra

Scientific experiments have shown Agnihotra purifies the air of pathogenic bacteria, reduces harmful chemicals in the air such as NOx and SOx, and also reduces the quantity of particulate matter in the air (which is harmful for our respiratory system.)

Scientific experiments also show that Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash purify water. We are advised to add Agnihotra Ash to our drinking water, and many of us are doing so regularly. Why is that recommended? The reason is: Agnihotra Ash removes pathogenic bacteria from water. This has been tested a number of times. One impressive experiment was done by Dr. John Matlander of Cuenca, Ecuador.

Relationship of Agnihotra to Soil and Agriculture

     Previously we talked about the experiments on Homa Farming done at Palampur Agricultural University, Himachal Pradesh, Northern India. The experiments showed increased yields, better disease resistance, and better quality of the produce.
The second part of their research was about soil health, a very important factor for future production.

Homa Therapy in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India

     Through Dr. Ashish K Jha, Zoologist, Hislop University, (on the right side), and his student and assistant professor, Dezling Chaitanya Danta (on the left side), Homa Therapy came to Nagpur city. We had met in Indore at an International Conference, where answers to Global Climate Change and its Impacts were sought.

Agnihotra Helps Children with HIV/AIDS

We are so delighted with this news! Agnihotra is helping children with AIDS.

Agnihotra at Festival of Vibration, Serock, Poland

Representatives of Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya attended the 3 day FESTIVAL of VIBRATION in Serock. Present were Parvati, Jarek, Asia and Suwindi. Agnihotra was performed at sunset before an interested group of people.

Effect of Agnihotra Atmosphere and Agnihotra Ash on Plant Growth and Soil Health

     Previously we have discussed the effects of Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on the growth and disease resistance of plants – both under lab conditions and in a greenhouse. But what are the effects in field conditions?

     The first systematic study on Homa Organic Farming was done in the CSK Agricultural University in Palampur (photo left), Himachal Pradesh (a Northern State in India, at the edge of the Himalaya mountains).

     Interesting how this research project started. In 2006, Karin Heschl and Bruce Johnson, both experts on Homa Organic Farming who live in India, gave presentations at a conference on organic farming.

Homa Therapy Represented at International Conference on Global Environmental Changes in Indore, MP, India

         In Indore, there was an International Conference on "Ecosystem Responses to Global Environmental Changes and their Impact."
               

Homa Therapy was present with the speakers: Dr. Ulrich Berk from Germany photo right) , Prof. Abel Hernández from USA, Mrs. Karin Heschl from Austria, Mr. Arun Anand from India, Mr. Jarek Bizberg from Poland and Aleta Macan from Canada/Austria (photos below).
All offered solutions and showed achievements with the practice of Homa Therapy, through presentations and research done in Ecology, Agriculture, Livestock and Health.

Growth of Plants in Agnihotra Atmosphere and with Agnihotra Ash

     Previously, we saw that Agnihotra Ash helps seeds to germinate better. The same result we get when seeds are kept for germination in a room where Agnihotra is performed regularly.
These are very simple experiments which everybody can easily perform at home also. We again suggest that you try yourself – and then please also send us photos of your results.

    Definitely the germination stage is very important for the life of plants. But unless we are just interested in sprouts it is important to see how plants grow further until they are harvested. Will plants also grow faster in the later stages, will there be a stronger resistance against diseases and pests, etc.? What about the quantity, the quality of the produce, the nutritional value, the shelf life?
       There were a lot of observations and reports from people performing Agnihotra in their gardens as well as from farmers who performed Agnihotra in their fields and used Agnihotra Ash for irrigation and for preparing different sprays.

   One relatively simple "experiment was done in Fergusson College, Pune, India".
Two plants were maintained providing same amount of water, light and other environmental conditions. One was kept in a room where Agnihotra was performed and another was kept in another room where Agnihotra was not performed. See the difference in growth of these two plants:

Homa Beekeeping

Rory Maher,
Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya, Poland
Spring has arrived at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya in Poland and it’s a joy to see our bees flying busily back and forth, returning to their hives laden with yellow pollen to feed their new emerging brood. Activity is high now as they rapidly build up strength after a long Polish winter where temperatures dropped to as low as -30 Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit).

The barely audible hum that the tight cluster of bees emits during those winter months gives way to a roaring song of communal joy as they energetically get to work on housekeeping, collecting pollen, nectar and rearing young. As the days warm up, there are few things more comforting to a beekeeper than that healthy buzz emanating from a hive.

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. The easiest way to experiment about that is by examining the germination of seeds, both in Agnihotra atmosphere and using Agnihotra ash.

Somayag 2017 - Aptoryam

Somayag Series Successfully Completed!

Bruce Johnson, Lisa Powers and the Somayag Committee

Agnihotra at 'MaYu' Natural Nutrition Center, West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Arriving in Miami, Florida, Vet. Dr. Carla Cossyleon picked us up and took us to West Palm Beach, where we arrived just in time for Agnihotra, which could be shared with some members of the Homa tribe at 'MaYu' Natural Nutrition Center.

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.
(Vasant V. Paranjpe, Homa Therapy – Our Last Chance, p. 21)
Till now we have covered beneficial effects of Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on air, soil and water resources. But there is one more environmental threat which affects all these areas and is especially dangerous as we do not detect it without senses: This is radioactivity.

Agnihotra in Australia

Lee and Frits Ringma

March 2016 North New South Wales and Queensland
In March this year Lee and Ana Ringma took to the road to share the graceful healing and blessed relief that Agnihotra and Homa Therapy brings into people’s lives. We drove up the New South Wales coast starting from Om Shree Dham in the Hunter Valley NSW, giving Agnihotra workshops all the way up to Brisbane Queensland across to Toowoomba and then down the New England Highway. Highlights were well-attended workshops in Wingham, Byron Bay area, Toowoomba and Armidale.
