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.

The Effect of Energy Field of Agnihotra on Water Purification

Dr Ulrich Berk from Germany has conducted several scientific experiments with Agnihotra.

One experiment was conducted at the Homa Therapy Goshala in Maheshwar, MP, India in 2013. The experiment is important because it shows that there is an energy field around Agnihotra which causes the purification effect in water and this energy is not of the known electromagnetic type. So it poses the question:

"What is this energy, if it is not electromagnetic?"

The paper describing this experiment in detail has now been published in the peer-reviewed Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge, Vol. 1 (1), January 2015, pp. 63-68.

Below are some excerpts from the paper.

Agnihotra and The Spiritual Ecologist

Agnihotra and The Spiritual EcologistAs I sit still and look out across the gardens and fields, there is so much going on! The sights, the smells, the sounds, the fragrant flowers being warmed by the early morning heat of the sun, the bees busy with their daily activity, the singing of birds, the flapping of wings, the buzzing of a multitude of insects.

Beyond the fields, a forest of lush green trees is swaying in the breeze. So much life, so much dependence on one another, and everything stands in delicate balance - layer upon layer upon layer of mutuality and interconnectedness - the sun, the seasons, the rain. The wildlife, earthworms, microbes and fungi. Life, decay, rebirth.

Mr. Anand V. Gaikwad writes:
"My wife Lata and myself decided to buy the farm land sometime in the year 1993 in Dahagaon, Taluka Kalyan, District, Thane.

The New Almanac - Importance and Significance of Dassera

The dawning of the new Golden Age (Satya Yuga) will be accompanied by the gradual adoption of a new almanac, a new calendar. Just as 25th December and Easter are important Christian festival dates in the west and Krishna's birthday and Buddha's birthday are important festivals for the Hindus and Buddhists respectively of the east, so too will certain dates assume greater significance in later times.

One of these dates of new significance will be the birthday of Kalki Avatar (Parama Sadguru Shree Gajánan Maháráj of Akkalkot, India). In 1918, the year of Shree's birth, this day fell on 17th May. May 17 is also the day on which Jesus delivered His sermon on the mount. This date is already assuming some significance in western countries at places where Shree's message of Agnihotra and Fivefold Path are followed. Also, December 25th, traditionally celebrated as Jesus's birthday, was the day in 1941 when Shree's universal mission was revealed to Him by Divine will.

I am assistant professor in the Indore Institute of Science and Technology in the civil engineering department. I am 22 years old. 2 years ago I came to know about Agnihotra from Dr. Ulrich Berk and I started practicing it. In the beginning I was not regularly doing it, but after some time I did.

Agnihotra at Freeform Arts Festival

We received the following story from Josh Maltby:

Freeform Arts Festival was founded in order to tie together the vast East Coast creative arts community and increase diversity in our local artistic landscape.

Freeform Arts is intended to serve as a connection point and a meeting place for the numerous cells and pockets of East Coast creative arts communities to unite and interact with each other. The goal is to create a more tightly knit, well-connected culture across the region.

The festival was held in Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, from June 12-16th. Dozens of workshops were held on numerous topics, from the practical, the creative, the spiritual to the bizarre. Agnihotra seemed a good fit.

My Visit to Australia and Om Shree Dham

We received the following story from Patty Powers:

In March, 2014 I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Australia and visit Om Shree Dham in the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia.

I found that the longer I stayed at Om Shree Dham, the more I felt its similarity to our Homa community in Madison, Virginia, as if the two were sister communities. The routine of morning and evening Agnihotra, Homas at 10 A.M., noon and 3 P.M., and an hour of Yajnya daily helped me feel right at home.

Peace Within the Storm



On April 26th, 2014, I woke up from the following dream:

I was sitting on a simple wooden bench in the middle of a small roofed boat with a few other people, sailing somewhat near some city's sea-shore. Suddenly the ocean showed its fierce strength and tidal waves began swallowing the city as well as all other vessels in the ocean. These were huge waves of water and mud, nothing to survive from!

I felt this was it, closed my eyes, focused on Shree's image and started saying ‘Om Shree.’
