In April, 2000 I was in Uruguay, my country of origin, in which I visited different cities. First I passed by Montevideo, the capital, and just a few kilometers away I passed by Canelones, a very pretty place called El Pinar. There I stayed with the Lincoln family as well as Raquel Lopez. She had learned about Agnihotra two years ago. In her garden she has huge plants of hydrangea with big beautiful flowers. She mentioned that the only reason they are so big and beautiful is because she puts Agnihotra ash on them. The incredible thing is that her garden is located under pine trees, which usually make the soil very acidic and nothing grows, but not in this case. She performs Agnihotra, then puts Agnihotra ash on her plants. Also, she added that in the winter her garden is the only one without frost. She has medicinal herbs year round!
Then I visited a place called Rincòn de la Bolsa in the Department of San Jose. There they have a university of music called Artesofia, which is also a Homa farm with a resonance point activated. They have around three hundred fruit trees in forty hectares, a place of silence in a building that is dedicated exclusively to women, a house and school for the children, milk cows, and they make their own honey. Their agriculture is based upon the Homa fires. You can feel an atmosphere filled with peace and harmony. They have ten papaya trees, which don’t normally grow in Uruguay; nevertheless, they all have wonderful fruits. The residents of the farm are very simple and generous people, willing to help others at any moment. They live in a community run by a man from Spain, Manuel Serrano. He and his wife are very devoted to Shree Vasant and all of his teachings. They are very open-minded when it comes to practicing Fivefold Path. Not only Uruguayans live at this farm; there are people from Spain, Chile and Colombia.
From there I went to the center of the country to the Department of Durazno to Sarandí del Yi. There I met a lady who doesn’t perform Agnihotra but had put Agnihotra ash only on two of her hibiscus because she had run out of ash to put it on the third. The hibiscus that didn’t receive any ash grew to be a dwarf. The other two grew tall and look beautiful.
My trip ended in Paysandú, the city where I was born. There I met a woman who, for four months in the upper part of her foot close to the toes, had a wound infected with staphylococcus dorado. The pain was unbearable because the infection went all the way to the bone. All the treatments she tried didn’t work. We applied ghee with Agnihotra ash. The wound started to close and after five days the doctor told her that the staphylococcus dorado was completely gone and the wound was fifty percent closed. After fifteen days she was able to wear shoes on her wounded foot. Also, she has two granddaughters who live with her and perform Agnihotra and do fifteen minutes of Om Tryambakam. Their behavior has changed dramatically. The granddaughters treated each other with more love and they would help with the house chores even when they weren’t asked to.
Another lady, Marina Caraccio de Maya, performs Agnihotra but not on a daily basis. She teaches yoga and gymnastics and noticed that every time she doesn’t perform Agnihotra she is unable to complete her schedule of classes because of her pregnancy. On the other hand, when she does the Agnihotra she can give classes all day long without fatigue.
Josefa Maza de Capelli is a lady who had surgery for breast cancer. For four months her arm had been swollen and had a red coloration like erysipelas and was warm. We put Agnihotra ash with ghee on the wound and after an hour the erysipelas was completely gone and it wasn’t warm anymore. She learned how to perform Agnihotra and she feels much better now.
Additionally, my aunt, Luz Nuñez de Maya, is 72 years old and has been doing the Agnihotra for two years and feels great because of it. In result of this, she teaches Agnihotra to everyone. She has had incredible results with the fires. For example, my uncle was very antisocial, bad tempered, and wouldn’t participate in any social event. Now, he is a changed man! He is very friendly and attends all social events.
Everywhere I went, I saw the Grace of SHREE GAJANAN. Thank you Holy Father for giving us the opportunity to serve.
