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.

Agnihotra - An Amazing Journey

The following testimonial is from Heather Penny, Virginia, U.S.A.

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.

40th Anniversary of Parama Dham Fire Temple, Madison, VA, USA

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013 marked the 40th anniversary of the Parama Dham Fire Temple in
Madison, Virginia. Inaugurated by Shree Vasant in 1973, Parama Dham was the first Fire Temple in the world established under Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj’s dispensation of resuscitation of the ancient science of atmospheric purification for the New Age. The name Parama Dham, which means House of Almighty Father, was chosen by Maharaj Shree.

In a Fire Temple there is no priest and nothing is worshipped. Agnihotra atmospheric purification technique is performed there twice daily at sunrise and sunset. Also, a fixed set of Mantras is chanted after Agnihotra. With the exception of the Mantras, silence is observed in the Fire Temple at all times. The atmosphere becomes surcharged with healing energies.

Johanna Jenisch writes from Heiligenberg, Germany:

"This summer, numerous visitors from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland and Poland joined at the Homa-Hof Heiligenberg, European Centre for promotion of Agnihotra. Also a couple from South India, on a visit to their children in Europe, found their way here and were pleased about the activities for distribution of Agnihotra.

"The summer meeting carried out for the third time was also a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Homa-Hof. After a warm welcome at the information point, the more than 200 visitors could read up on the development since the acquisition of the farm."

Agnihotra in Panama

I received the following letter from Rev Mike Menkes:

I stayed in El Valle, a picturesque mountain town just two hours from Panama City in Panama from July to December, 2012 with Agnihotra performed several times a week. My property manager complained to El Corregidor (town magistrate) that I had damaged my rental casita.

I performed Agnihotra the morning of our hearing. Following my suggestion, El Corregidor visited the property, where the manager had complained that I had ruined the gas stove. She pointed out that the plastic rings around the oven dials had melted and that I was an irresponsible tenant.
