Agnihotra is Always Taught Free of Charge

As Homa Therapy teachers, people sometimes ask how much we charge to teach Agnihotra. The answer is the same all over the world. Agnihotra is always taught free of charge. It is one of the principles which we follow. And people recognise bonafide Homa Therapy teachers by this one distinguishing feature, that they never charge for the teachings. We were given these teachings, Divine knowledge, free of charge. So, we cannot charge for it!

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.

Application of Agnihotra Ash for Enhancing Soil Fertility

Excerpt from the International Journal of Science, Engineering and Technology Research (IJSETR), Volume 4, Issue 7, July 2015

Chanda Berde, Arvind Kulkarni, Arati Potphode, Anand Gaikwad and Snehalata Gaikwad
Department of Biological Sciences, Gogate Jogalekar College, Ratnagiri.

The effect of addition of Agnihotra ash to farm soil was analysed. Four farm soil samples and one soil sample from newly purchased land were selected for the study. Initial microbial count was taken before addition of ash. Ash supplemented soil was analysed after incubation of one week. The microbial count of soil before and after ash addition was enumerated. A marked difference in the count was observed. Addition of ash results in increase in the overall bacterial flora, including the effective bacteria i.e nitrogen fixers and phosphate solubilisers while reduction in the fungal flora was seen.

"I am doing Agnihotra for the last 5 years. I found that, before joining my college in Dhamnod, the students were very undisciplined and they did not want to study in the classrooms. They were just wandering here and there in the campus. We have over 1,000 students here.            (Photo  right Dr. Sharma with his wife and daughter.)
