Agnihotra Purifies Water

A simple experiment: We sterilized two bottles of water, kept one in the lab and one in an Agnihotra hut. After three days we brought the bottle back from the Agnihotra hut into the lab. Then one drop of contaminated water was added to each bottle, and then count of coliform bacteria was measured for three days.

Scientists Can Set Up Experiments

Following is an excerpt from the book "Homa Therapy - Our Last Chance" by Vasant V. Paranjpe. Scientists have already made a beginning with some of these suggestions.

Ancient science tells us that there is a sound which emanates from Agnihotra pyramid.

Scientists should begin looking at Agnihotra with respect to its ability to neutralize pathogenic bacteria.
Effect of Agnihotra on Aerial Microflora

Scientists can test Agnihotra performed using no vessels, different shaped vessels, different shaped vessels of copper.

People with professional backgrounds can easily document the surprising effect of Agnihotra atmosphere on the neurological system of man.

Effect of Agnihotra on Air Pollution

We had a lot of experiments which show that Agnihotra reduces pathogenic particles in the air.

We did a new experiment in March in North Maharashtra University in Jalgaon (one hour away from Tapovan), measuring particulate matter in the air plus SOx and NOx using a High Volume Air Sampler.

See results below.

It was expected that during and right after Agnihotra there would be more particles in the air; any fire produces some smoke.

Application of Agnihotra Ash for Enhancing Soil Fertility

Excerpt from the International Journal of Science, Engineering and Technology Research (IJSETR), Volume 4, Issue 7, July 2015

The effect of addition of Agnihotra ash to farm soil was analysed. Four farm soil samples and one soil sample from newly purchased land were selected for the study. Initial microbial count was taken before addition of ash. Ash supplemented soil was analysed after incubation of one week. The microbial count of soil before and after ash addition was enumerated. A marked difference in the count was observed. Addition of ash results in increase in the overall bacterial flora, including the effective bacteria i.e nitrogen fixers and phosphate solubilisers while reduction in the fungal flora was seen.

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.
(Now also available in Spanish)

Below are some excerpts from the paper.

Effect of Agnihotra Ash on Impurities in Drinking Water

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.

Prof. Haber: The basic premise was to neutralize radioactivity with ancient technologies or techniques.

Agnihotra and Radioactivity

One Eastern European scientist said:
“Normally scientists will not understand easily how radioactivity can be neutralised by doing AGNIHOTRA. They always think of burning something as a chemical process only. But if it is only a chemical process then the nuclei of the atoms would not be changed. And therefore radioactivity could not be affected at all.

Radioactivity and Homa Therapy

"There was a report from East of Poland that after Chernobyl Agnihotra and Tryambakam Homa helped to reduce the radiation level. The mode of measurement was with a pendulum. The report was published in a Journal for Radiestesia.

Agnihotra Ash and Water Soluble Phosphates

Dr Tung Ming Lai, Denver, Colorado.

I did some lab testing on Agnihotra ash. The results are interesting. 0.1g of ash was shaken with 25 ml of water for forty-eight hours and then the water-soluble phosphate content was measured. The same amount of ash was shaken with two different soils (5g) from Colorado (also 25 ml of water) and phosphate content was measured after forty-eight hours of being shaken.
The results are as follows. (The values are the average values of duplicates.)
