‘Creating Homa Farm Communities’ Workshop

In November 2010, my husband Jarek and I gave our first workshop on ‘Creating Homa Farm Communities’ at the Resonance Point, the center for Baltimore Homa Community (BHC) in Baltimore, Maryland. What follows is the gist of what we shared in the workshop.

In the workshop everyone had an opportunity to envision a Homa Farm community and share those visions with each other. We also focused on how to find a farm, which was of particular interest to the people there. It was fun and dynamic. We look forward to offering this workshop in various countries.

We are grateful to BHC for hosting us and giving us the opportunity to come and share our experiences. Many thanks to Henry and Jannette Gregory for letting us stay with them, and to the whole BHC community for their heartfelt welcome home!

10th Anniversary of Round-the-Clock Fire at Tapovan

Bruce Johnson writes about the 10th Anniversary of Round-the-Clock Fire at Tapovan
On 25th March 2011 we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of 24 hour round-the-clock Om Tryambakam Homa Fire at Tapovan in north Maharashtra state of western India. Several places in various countries have witnessed similar round-the-clock fire over the past 30 years or more.
With ceaseless effort a small group of dedicated people, inspired by the teachings of the Great Master Shree Gajanan Maharaj and His humble disciple, Shree Vasant, have maintained this blessed Fire for the benefit of Mother Earth and the whole of humanity. And as the natural and man-made catastrophes intensify in both magnitude and frequency this fire will assume greater importance now.
Shree Vasant once said, "Only through FIRE can the planet be healed. Through intense practice of YAJNYA (Homa) a reverse trend can take place. IT IS A RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK." For those wishing to offer their support please contact:

Photos above show Mr. Tryambak Kankhare (Bua) and Mr. Prabhakar Patil (Nana) who anchor the round-the-clock fire by doing the night-time hours. Each night, each man does 6 hours Yajnya and has done this continuously for the past 10 years.

Other photos above show Mr. Abhay Paranjpe with his wife Anjaly, Mr. Sanjay Patil with his wife Manisha during the ceremony and Bruce Johnson with his wife Anne Godfrey, the Tapovan care takers at Agnihotra time.
