3 Day Live–in Agnihotra Teacher Training Australia

Vyahruti Homa at 10am, 12pm and 3pm

In February this year we held our first Australasian Agnihotra Teacher Training course at Om Shree Dham, Homa Therapy Centre in the Hunter Valley NSW.

There are many people desirous of sharing Agnihotra with others but invariably we find that they struggle with how to describe Agnihotra often ending up using terms such as ceremony, ritual or Indian practice. And then suddenly the gift of environmental healing for all ends up reaching a very limited audience.

In response to the need we put together a 3 day live-in course that we will conduct yearly. We are not talking about Homa Therapy Teacher Training, a much larger field of knowledge and application and which has very specific requirements such as a commitment to an Ahimsa lifestyle (practice of harmlessness) which includes vegetarianism and other subtle requirements. We are talking simply about assisting others to confidently share Agnihotra in the way Shree Vasant taught us – primarily as a universal environmental healing tool from the ancient knowledge base of Ayurveda.

Agnihotra in the Harijan colonies of Kharagpur, West Bengal, India

In February, 2014 Abhay Paranjpe and Sanjay and Manisha Patil (photo right) visited the birthplace of Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj in Kharagpur, West Bengal.

Two families (the families of Gauri Shankar and Subodh Das) maintain the practice of Agnihotra in the Railway Quarter where Sonamata (mother of Parama Sadguru) used to stay with her father when she visited Kharagpur.

This Railway Quarter is quite close to the colony of Harijans (so-called ‘Untouchables’) in whose houses the great Saint Upasani Baba was residing in the year 1913. Part of His mission was to eradicate the curse of Untouchability which was destroying the fabric of Hindu society. Sonamata used to go with her father to this Harijan colony to feed and care for the poor. It was there at the age of thirteen, that Sonamata met her Guru, Upasani Baba. Five years later on May 17th 1918 she gave birth to the Light of the World. Continue reading “Agnihotra in the Harijan colonies of Kharagpur, West Bengal, India”

Fire, Art & Sound – Homa Therapy Workshop (Lima, Peru)

On April 12th, 2014 a full day Homa Therapy Workshop: “Awakening our healing and creative power through Fire, Art and Sound” was given by Jessica Auza and Giada Di Giammarco, in Lima-Peru.

As one of the beauties of this ancient science is that it can be applied to every aspect of life today, we dreamed of a workshop which combined the healing power of Homa Therapy fires with art and sound. As it manifested we felt grateful for the opportunity to share with an enthusiastic group of people and inspire a self discovery journey to believe in ourselves and awaken the potential in all of us to put our love into action and be the change we want to see in this world. We enjoyed the dreaming as much as the manifestation. Continue reading “Fire, Art & Sound – Homa Therapy Workshop (Lima, Peru)”
