Agnihotra is the Vedic Solution to Climate Change

Shanti Atlanta Agnihotra Meditation

THE AGNIHOTRA VEDIC SOLUTION HAS BEEN ACKNOWLEDGED AS A POSSIBLE SOLUTION THROUGH RESOLUTIONS BY THE STATE OF GEORGIA, THE STATE OF ALABAMA (MACON COUNTY OF ALABAMA), AND THE CITY OF TUSKEGEE The Heal the Atmosphere Association, founded by my teacher, Sri Charles Davis, has received these honors as the primary advocate of Agnihotra/Homa Therapy. Go to the link below to see the official papers.

Agnihotra is a healing fire from the ancient science of Ayurveda. It purifies the atmosphere through a specially prepared fire performed at sunrise and sunset daily. Anyone, from any faith or non-faith, can do Agnihotra and heal the atmosphere in his/her own home. Agnihotra/Homa Therapy is a Vedic science that has been scientifically proven to reverse pollution. Search Google Scholar to see the numerous scientific studies.

Millions of people all over the world have experienced that Agnihotra:

  • Reduces stress
  • Improves thoughts & mental health
  • Improves health
  • Increases energy
  • Fills the mind with love
  • Helps with drug and alcohol addiction
  • Helps with PTSD
  • Helps plants grow
  • Purifies water
  • Neutralizes harmful radiation and pathogenic bacteria
  • Harmonizes Prana (life energy)

Agnihotra is an ancient science given in Sanskrit language at the time of creation. Sanskrit was never anyone’s mother tongue; it’s a language of vibration. We can make changes in the atmosphere with Sanskrit mantras and fire prepared with specific organic substances, timed to the sunrise/sunset biorhythm.

Shanti Atlanta Agnihotra Meditation

How to Perform Agnihotra:

The fire is prepared in a copper pyramid of specific size and shape. Brown rice, dried cow dung (manure), and ghee (clarified unsalted butter) are the substances burned. Exactly at sunrise or sunset, the mantras are spoken, and a small amount of rice and ghee is given to the fire.

Subtle, powerful heal energies are created by the biorhythms, mantras, and pyramid. These energies are generated or thrust into the atmosphere by fire. This, in addition to the qualities of the materials burned, produces the full effect of this healing HOMA (healing fire).
Tremendous amounts of energy are gathered around the Agnihotra copper pyramid at Agnihotra time. A magnetic type field is created, which neutralizes negative energies and reinforces positive energies. Therefore, a positive pattern is created by one who does Agnihotra. Agnihotra purifies the atmosphere of pollutants and neutralizes harmful radiation. The resultant atmosphere nourishes plant life.

Agnihotra and Plants: The ghee is thrust into the atmosphere and attaches itself to the molecular structure of the soil, allowing the soil to retain more moisture.

  • Plants grown in an Agnihotra atmosphere withstand droughts better.
  • Agnihotra plants have more nutrients.
  • Agnihotra fruits and vegetables have better size, taste, texture, and yield.
  • Performance of Agnihotra in the garden reduces pest problems.

Medicinal properties of Agnihotra: Agnihotra renews the brain cells, revitalizes the skin, and purifies the blood. It’s a holistic approach to life — many people who are normally allergic to smoke experience a healing effect by sitting in an Agnihotra atmosphere. The healing effects of Agnihotra are locked in the resultant ash. Thousands of people in different parts of the world have experienced wonderful healings of all types of ailments by using Agnihotra ash.
