What is HOMA Therapy?

HOMA is a Sanskrit word used here synonymously with YAJNYA. YAJNYA is the technical term from the Vedic science of bioenergy denoting the process of removing the toxic conditions of the atmosphere through the agency of fire. This means healing and purifying of the atmosphere with fire as the medium. The central idea in HOMA Therapy is:

You heal the atmosphere and the healed atmosphere heals you.


Shree Vasant describes Homa Therapy

Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Agriculture - Food Quality

      For good health, proper diet with nutritious vegetables, fruits, and grains is of great importance. But it seems that with the food produced nowadays our bodies often do not get all the micronutrients they need to maintain good health. Several recent studies show that there is a decline in nutritional value of vegetables, fruits, and grains.

Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya Summer 2017

Summer at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya was rich with visitors from many countries, including United States, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, China, Hungary, India, Turkey, Thailand, Israel, Chile, Brazil, Holland, Italy, Romania, and Poland! As always, there was a lively interchange of ideas and experiences, as well as healing received from the many fires performed here daily. We truly are One World.

Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Agriculture - Pests and Diseases

      Vedic Knowledge says that when we perform Agnihotra, a channel is created above the pyramid, going up 12 kilometres.
Prana energy - Life Energy – which lies above our atmosphere comes down through this channel. Because of pollution this flow of Prana energy might be blocked otherwise.

Ancient Oaks Children’s Program 2017–Another Success!

Patricia (Patty) Norton and Maria Broom

It was one of Shree Vasant’s greatest dreams to bring children from the heart of Baltimore city out to our Homa farm where they could experience green open spaces and a healing atmosphere saturated with Homa fires. With a generous grant from the Krieger Fund, the Baltimore Homa Community was able to offer a second year of their Children’s Summer Farm Program at Ancient Oaks Homa Farm in Westminster, Maryland. Eight groups–over 300 children–came to enjoy a half-day of hiking, drumming, dancing, yoga, sound healing, storytelling, tasty vegetarian lunches and quiet meditation with Homa fire, not to mention lots and lots of free time to just run and play without fear of traffic, violence or bullets. With wonderful, flexible facilitators and plenty of Shree’s grace we were able to do all of this and it is extremely humbling.

Scientific Aspects of Agnihotra: Agriculture - Crop Yield

       In the previous blog we summarized four M.Sc. theses from Dharwad University, Karnataka, India, which give ample evidence that with Homa Organic Farming a healthy micro-flora and micro-fauna in soil is created, thus rejuvenating the soil. This is of utmost importance as nowadays conventional farming which uses a wide range of agrochemicals is destroying this micro-flora and micro-fauna, thus leaving behind a soil which is more and more exhausted, no longer a rich living soil.

Agnihotra in Delhi

Before leaving Mother India, we spent a few days in New Delhi with Mother Saroj Malik and her daughter, Akanksha, who was our wonderful hostess. Both organized meetings and presentations for Homa Therapy.
Mrs. Umang, neighbor of Akanksha and now Agnihotra practitioner, also took initiatives to inform people about Homa Therapy in their home and workplace.

Agnihotra Goes to Sewadham Ashram, Ujjain, MP, India

            We had the honor of meeting Mr. Sudhir Bhai Goyal, through Sarvajit Paranjpe, during the Somayag in early February 2017 at the Maheshwar Goshala. He invited us to visit his Ashram in Ujjain and teach Agnihotra and the Homa Therapy Fires. The time had come to follow the call of this humble man.
      Guided by Mrs. Vidya Didwania we arrived at the Sewadham Ashram.

Effects of Homa Organic Farming on Soil Quality

       In my previous blog I quoted reports of FAO (the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) saying that farming only 60 years of farming would be left if conventional farming would continue like today.
Also we quoted Shree Vasant Paranjpe stating that the soil has to be rejuvenated first by Homa Therapy, thus creating a healthy micro-flora and micro-fauna. This is the claim based on Vedic Knowledge. To which extent could this claim be validated by modern agricultural sciences?

Purification of Water by Agnihotra

Dr. Ulrich Berk

Scientific experiments have shown Agnihotra purifies the air of pathogenic bacteria, reduces harmful chemicals in the air such as NOx and SOx, and also reduces the quantity of particulate matter in the air (which is harmful for our respiratory system.)

Scientific experiments also show that Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash purify water. We are advised to add Agnihotra Ash to our drinking water, and many of us are doing so regularly. Why is that recommended? The reason is: Agnihotra Ash removes pathogenic bacteria from water. This has been tested a number of times. One impressive experiment was done by Dr. John Matlander of Cuenca, Ecuador.

Relationship of Agnihotra to Soil and Agriculture

     Previously we talked about the experiments on Homa Farming done at Palampur Agricultural University, Himachal Pradesh, Northern India. The experiments showed increased yields, better disease resistance, and better quality of the produce.
The second part of their research was about soil health, a very important factor for future production.

We are so delighted with this news! Agnihotra is helping children with AIDS.

Agnihotra at Festival of Vibration, Serock, Poland

Representatives of Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya attended the 3 day FESTIVAL of VIBRATION in Serock. Present were Parvati, Jarek, Asia and Suwindi. Agnihotra was performed at sunset before an interested group of people.

Effect of Agnihotra Atmosphere and Agnihotra Ash on Plant Growth and Soil Health

     Previously we have discussed the effects of Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash on the growth and disease resistance of plants – both under lab conditions and in a greenhouse. But what are the effects in field conditions?

     The first systematic study on Homa Organic Farming was done in the CSK Agricultural University in Palampur (photo left), Himachal Pradesh (a Northern State in India, at the edge of the Himalaya mountains).

     Interesting how this research project started. In 2006, Karin Heschl and Bruce Johnson, both experts on Homa Organic Farming who live in India, gave presentations at a conference on organic farming.

Homa Therapy Represented at International Conference on Global Environmental Changes in Indore, MP, India

         In Indore, there was an International Conference on "Ecosystem Responses to Global Environmental Changes and their Impact."
               

Homa Therapy was present with the speakers: Dr. Ulrich Berk from Germany photo right) , Prof. Abel Hernández from USA, Mrs. Karin Heschl from Austria, Mr. Arun Anand from India, Mr. Jarek Bizberg from Poland and Aleta Macan from Canada/Austria (photos below).
All offered solutions and showed achievements with the practice of Homa Therapy, through presentations and research done in Ecology, Agriculture, Livestock and Health.

Growth of Plants in Agnihotra Atmosphere and with Agnihotra Ash

     Previously, we saw that Agnihotra Ash helps seeds to germinate better. The same result we get when seeds are kept for germination in a room where Agnihotra is performed regularly.
These are very simple experiments which everybody can easily perform at home also. We again suggest that you try yourself – and then please also send us photos of your results.

    Definitely the germination stage is very important for the life of plants. But unless we are just interested in sprouts it is important to see how plants grow further until they are harvested. Will plants also grow faster in the later stages, will there be a stronger resistance against diseases and pests, etc.? What about the quantity, the quality of the produce, the nutritional value, the shelf life?
       There were a lot of observations and reports from people performing Agnihotra in their gardens as well as from farmers who performed Agnihotra in their fields and used Agnihotra Ash for irrigation and for preparing different sprays.

   One relatively simple "experiment was done in Fergusson College, Pune, India".
Two plants were maintained providing same amount of water, light and other environmental conditions. One was kept in a room where Agnihotra was performed and another was kept in another room where Agnihotra was not performed. See the difference in growth of these two plants:

Homa Beekeeping

Rory Maher,
Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya, Poland
Spring has arrived at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya in Poland and it’s a joy to see our bees flying busily back and forth, returning to their hives laden with yellow pollen to feed their new emerging brood. Activity is high now as they rapidly build up strength after a long Polish winter where temperatures dropped to as low as -30 Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit).

The barely audible hum that the tight cluster of bees emits during those winter months gives way to a roaring song of communal joy as they energetically get to work on housekeeping, collecting pollen, nectar and rearing young. As the days warm up, there are few things more comforting to a beekeeper than that healthy buzz emanating from a hive.
