It was a gorgeous, sparkling, full moon day at Bhrugu Aranya, the lovely Homa Organic farm in Wysoka, Poland. With a lot of dedication and commitment, the healing fires of Agnihotra and Yajnya have been performed there daily for nearly thirteen years. Jarek Bizberg, president of Terapia Homa Foundation, and his wife, Parvati, began the farm in 1995. Since then, others have joined them, their families have grown, and they have a thriving international Homa community. Continue reading “Conversations with Trees”
Here in rural, western Massachusetts, about two and a half hours from Boston, we live on 6.4 acres of land that has a large vegetable, flower, and herb garden. For the past few years here I have been doing Agnihotra and other healing fires while caring for the land, growing vegetables and some fruits using Homa fires.
A new program is being implemented by the Agricultural Department (at Municipality level) in the whole state of Madhya Pradesh. The different departments have to conduct at least two farmer’s gathering programs every year in the Monsoon (Kharif) and in the Winter (Rabi) season to make farmers aware of the new technologies, methods and practices to solve the problems faced by the farmers. The Agricultural Department from Maheshwar invited Fivefold Path Mission to address the gathering, as this year the District Khargone faced a huge crop loss due to seasonal changes and pest attacks.
Abel Hernandez and Sarvajit Paranjpe addressed the gathering and talked about HOMA Farming and Homa Therapy and explained how agricultural and health problems can be overcome with the help of this ancient healing method.
A circle of healers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland met to perform together the Agnihotra healing fire.
“We are One” is the message! We live in One world! One Humanity! One eternal truth!
Again many visitors from around the world and from India attended this year’s Somayag. It was a mixture of languages, colors, tastes, forms of being, etc. but above all, there was the feeling of having come together to share the PEACE and LOVE emanating from these Ancient Holy Fires, to seek UNITY behind the cultural and historical differences and to UNITE all our forces and strength in the name of Mother Earth, who is in dire need of healing.
The Yajamana (chief priest), Mr. Haribhau Apte, his wife Shraddha and their son Achal brought the Sacred Fire and their group of priests again this year to Maheshwar to perform the Somayag according to Ancient Vedic tradition. There were constant offerings of ghee, Soma, milk, sweets, etc. Before any action is taken, Mantras are chanted. Several times during the Somayag the fire is being offered a certain mixture of ghee, cows’ milk and goat milk with Mantras and the flames shoot up high, creating a special atmospheric effect and purification.
During the 5 days of Somayag, many Agnihotras were performed at sunrise and sunset by the many visitors.
The Homa family is growing day by day, more wonderful loving, young and young at heart beings from all over the planet join in to receive and send healing energies through Agnihotra to Mother Earth, to places of: war and disaster, hunger and famine, violence and crime. Agnihotra heals one heart at a time!
The end of the Somayag was celebrated by putting the instruments used during the 5-day Fire into the river Narmada and everyone immersing and bathing in this Holy River.
A 2 day conference sponsored by the National Planning Commission of India was conducted in Tapovan on the subject “Bringing Homa Organic Farming into the Mainstream of Indian Agniculture System.”
Sarvajit Paranjpe gave a short introduction to this important meeting:
“We have gathered here in the midst of environmental catastrophe where the farm lands and farmers are the direct victim. Farmers are finding it difficult to survive where the per acre production of food grains is decreasing and soil is deteriorating.

Margaret More from UK writes:
“Looking through my photos I would like to share this picture from a weekend teaching fire at the invitation of keen Agnihotri Maria Rosenlind who lives near Eksjoe in Sweden. It shows the happy faces at the group’s first Agnihotra fire. Much love, Margaret”
Devy Johnson, M.D. from Chile (fifth from the left) visited Buenos Aires and thanks to Mr. Gabriel Rugiero was able to teach Agnihotra to a wonderful group of people.
Also a Women’s Healing Circle was established in the house of Mrs. Ilda.
Mr.Diego Castañon writes from Vancouver, Canada:
Here are some nice pictures of Agnihotra being performed in Vancouver. My dear friend Josh is in charge of the web site www.agnihotracanada.org and we would be very happy if we could include our activities and results in the English Homa Health Newsletter sent monthly.
I practice Agnihotra for about 5 years and really love the fire and I had amazing experiences with it. For me, its something special to be able to perform such an ancient holy technique and thus heal myself and the environment.
I worked on different organic farms in different countries and experienced that the performance of Agnihotra and Homas create a special atmosphere and really is a way to happy living in peace and harmony with Nature.
