I was in the health food store and a gentleman came up to me and said, “I would like to show you something. May I come to your home?” His name was Kibwe Bey and he did come one evening, sat down on the living room floor and proceeded to make a smoky little fire. I fell in love with the fragrance immediately and so began my Homa-centered life. This was 32 years ago in 1976. Continue reading “Making the Fire the Center of Your Life”
Dr Henry Gregory writes from Baltimore, MD, USA.
On May 15th, Jannette and I went to Accra, Ghana in West Africa for a dual purpose trip. I had been commissioned by an agency that I work with to train young psychologists in Accra, and as representatives of the Baltimore Homa Community we were to connect with Agnihotra practitioners in Ghana and identify a site for a Homa farm.
To have the opportunity of visiting this planet’s three Points of Light is undoubtedly a wonderful experience, a marvelous opportunity for exploring our thoughts, our feelings and also for clearing any doubts that we may have–those doubts that just assault us, from time to time, without warning!
I would like to share my very personal views and experiences of each of these points. I want to explain how they have helped me not only to confront my demons, but also to almost touch the divine with my senses—the divine inside of each of us that sometimes (or most of the time) in our life we escape from.

In May I visited Sri Lanka to teach Agnihotra and Homa Therapy. I stayed with Mr. Leel Randeni and his family in Kumbaloluwa, about 40 km from the capital Colombo. Leel works for the Ministry of the Environment and he is very environmentally conscious.
I gave several talks and demonstrations to farmer groups with Leel assisting with translation into local language. Several people purchased pyramids to start Agnihotra. Leel and his colleague Wijesinghe are actively working on preserving the traditional rice varieties of Sri Lanka.
Many Homa Therapy Centres in various countries hold Women’s Healing Circles regularly on Thursday evenings. Here are two such groups.
Women’s Healing Circle in Golan Heights, Israel (top) and in Piura, Peru (bottom), where Homa fires are performed and devotional singing, dancing, lots of laughter and good feelings are shared between the sisters.
During the month of July, a course on Sanskrit was held at the Eco Homa Farm of Luis and Kika Valenzuela in Olmue, Chile. Carlos Bustamante was the instructor; he is a University professor of Physics and a Sanskrit Scholar. He teaches at various Universities in Chile.
Several hours of Om Tryambakam Homa, are being done during weekends and holidays at the Eco Homa Farm (see photo of Japanese bridge on the farm), by a group which is increasing day by day.
Rita Hirt did an Agnihotra tour through Kazakhstan with much success. There is lots of interest and many more pyramids are needed.
Special effect due to Yajnya
(Here we use the terms Yajnya and Homa interchangeably)
Message from Shree Vasant Maheshwar, India 6 July 2008:
“Ancient tradition of Vedic knowledge states that due to performance of Yajnya
ÁPOORVA comes about. Apoorva means: ‘that which was not there before.’ Some special effect comes about: ‘something which was not there before.’
