I have been a naturopath/homeopath for over 30 years. I was first introduced to Agnihotra in the late eighties at a workshop facilitated by Bruce Johnson and Anne Godfrey. I was immediately impressed with the ‘fire purification’ process.

When I came to Ancient Oaks last December, while in Baltimore for a visit, I felt as though the land was calling out to me, asking me to come be here, to be part of it. On that trip I was only able to stay for a few hours at the farm. When I left the feeling stayed with me and I knew I would be back. A few months later I was able to return in the dead of winter when nature was silent and sleeping under a blanket of snow. Still I felt as if something were speaking to me, quiet though it was. As the weather warmed and the snow melted away the voice grew stronger, growing with the pasture, the forest and the garden as they took on new life and became green again. Now, just past the summer solstice, that quiet voice has turned into a joyous song, a song sung by all of the beings that have made Ancient Oaks their home: the people, the plants, the cows, the wildlife, the nature spirits, devas and spiritual beings. A song those of us living here and everyone who visits or helps from afar are wrapped up in and are part of.

On May 17th 2015, Shree Gajanan Maharaj’s birthday, we performed a powerful Rudra Yajnya with all the community and close friends present. Afterwards, on this beautiful spring day we officially broke ground. One by one, we took shovels and dug into the earth where the Centre of Light will stand. Two days later, contractors arrived to begin the excavation work.

In 1999 a plot of land was acquired by Fivefold Path Mission on the north bank of the Narmada River about 4 kilometers east of Maheshwar. This is the site of the Homa Therapy Goshala (goshala means cow refuge). At the instigation of Shree Vasant Paranjpe, preparations were begun in 2007 for conducting a series of seven Maha Somayags at the Goshala.
