Agnihotra-Questions and Answers
Homa at Indigenous Healing Event in Colombia
While Homa farming has been found to yield excellent and sometimes amazing results, not everyone can have a Homa farm; a number of disciplines must be observed, and at least several people will be needed to meet the requirements. However, home gardeners have experienced wonderful results when Agnihotra and other Homa fires have been done in or near their gardens.–Ed.

The harvest in the area goes between April and August-September. The second harvest begins at the end of the year and runs until February-March. This year the harvest in the surroundings here is not very productive; it is rather poor. It is scarce. However, our mango benefits from the fact that Agnihotra is done every day at sunrise and sunset. Also, Tryambakam Homa is being performed.
In addition, part of the Homa ashes are applied to the surrounding trees and ornamental plants. Our mango tree is so loaded with fruits that the branches reach the ground. The harvest is abundant and homogeneous and the flavor of the mangoes is exquisite. This variety is called sugar mango.
I would like to share this technique, which I found:
If we place water near where we practice the Homa fires, that water is very healing. So, in addition to the Agnihotra ash, the water with which this ash is going to be consumed by people, plants or animals, accelerates the healing process. OM SHREE

I have been an Agnihotri for 12 years. I have been living in this house since a year and a half. I decided to build a mini garden. It is just about 3,5 x 3,5 meters, which are approximately10 square meters. I am doing the Homa fires regularly and there is always something to harvest in this little garden. I have seen incredible results.
For example, I have some swiss chard that gives me giant leaves with a delicious taste, and the plants continue to grow more and more leaves.
The zucchini plant I have produces so many fruits. Although the plant is almost dead, because it has completed its productive cycle, it continues to bear fruits in large quantities. That is because my plants are receiving all the energy of the Homa fires and also Agnihotra ash (whatever is left over after sieving it).
Practically within the city, at a height of 2500 meters, I cultivate a lot of things:
kale, 3 types of lettuce, chives, coriander, parsley, zucchini, swiss chard, beet, celery, dandelion (which grows wild), and also some medicinal and aromatic herbs such as mint, nettle, and other local herbs. I take some of the herbs from here to prepare plant-based cosmetics, which is my job.
I also have some flowers such as lavender, sunflowers, and a flower called ataco. The results are incredible. In such a small space, practicing the Homa fires, we can obtain results and feed ourselves from this.
I have a small composting area where I gather all the thicker branches of the plants and raw waste of vegetables and fruits from the kitchen, covering them with soil and adding Homa ash. It has no bad smell; it is clean and well cared for and that compost helps me to continue planting.
(It is recommended to spread Agnihotra ash on the soil when planting and transplanting. Ash from Om Tryambakam and Vyahruti Homa may be used on existing plants and spread on the lawn or over larger areas.-Ed.)
Agnihotra-Questions and Answers
Q. How do people use Agnihotra ash for healing?
A. People all over the world use Agnihotra ash to make home remedies. Many people have shared their experiences on homahealth.com.
Monika Koch, a German pharmacist, has written a book which tells how to make these home remedies. It is available in English for free online at:
Shree Vasant Paranjpe taught that when a person ingests Agnihotra ash from an Agnihotra that they performed, the Agnihotra ash becomes especially healing.
When making home remedies, it is recommended to use the best Agnihotra ash. The Agnihotra ash should be collected from Agnihotras when:
–the performer bathed and put on clean clothes before doing Agnihotra
–Agnihotra timings exactly to the second were observed
–the fire burned quickly and completely
Shree Vasant advised that Agnihotra eye drops should be prepared by a pharmacist.
Agnihotra ash and Agnihotra ash home remedies are never to be sold.
Please note: Homa Therapy teachers and centers do not prescribe or make claims or promises regarding Agnihotra ash preparations.
Q. Should I clean my Agnihotra pyramid?
A. Normally, we don’t need to clean the pyramid. It’s okay if a thin layer of black ash builds up on the inside of the pyramid. The most important thing is not to alter the pyramid shape, so we don’t want to scratch or bend the inside of the pyramid by scrubbing or scraping.
Agnihotra–Spreading the Word
Many of us who have experienced beneficial effects from Agnihotra would like to make it available to others. Homa Therapy Teacher Reiner Szcypior of Austria writes:
We have a few ways to promote Agnihotra in Austria.
- Our car is carrying the message.
- The car of one of our friends from last month also. Both cars run in Austria.
- MAGIC CARDS . This is a game which we give free at random to everybody. We may just meet any person on the street and ask him or her if they like to play a little game. Then we gift it to them. We do not talk about Agnihotra, only if they ask.
- Stickers in German
- Flags, like the Tibetan flags, but with Homa Fire
- Big sign boards
Sarvajit Paranjpe of Fivefold Path Mission, Maheshwar, India writes that recently they made this design for stickers to promote Agnihotra.
Walk in Light
The following messages were received in meditation by Parvati Rosen-Bizberg of Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya, Jordanow, Poland.

(Following our gathering, ending with a Vyahruti Homa at precisely the time of Shree Gajanan Maharaj’s birth, I heard these words spoken quietly):
Walk in Light.
Through the darkness.
Walk in Light.
Light. Only Light.
Once the hand is held, you do not walk alone.
We are ever with you all.

May 17, 2022 Shree Vasant
(During the wonderful Rudra Yajnya performed in Parashuram Temple at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya in Poland, I received this lovely message from Shree Vasant detailing Fivefold Path.)
For those who follow on FIVEFOLD PATH, the answers become known through your own
effort to walk the path with sincerity and purpose. Every step is guided. Every step is
blessed by Grace. So simple, yet if one follows step-by-step, realization dawns.
One cannot think one’s way to realization.
One cannot read one’s way to inner peace and harmony.
One cannot buy it.
One cannot sell it either.
What is given is given by Grace, as a blueprint for a life lived in peace.
Sincere efforts to practice daily YAJNYA is a natural start to living a life in a conscious
manner. But one must address the concept of sharing one’s assets in a spirit of humility.
Without practice of DAAN, in life, it is easier to fall victim to jealousy, envy, greed and to
become obsessed with the pursuit of wealth. The accumulation of possessions can harden
one’s heart—unless it is given, unless it is shared.
Currency is fluid, as the current of the sea. To give without expectation of reward or
recognition opens the doors to Grace. It is the second step on Fivefold Path. It is to reduce
the hold of material possessions and attachment to worldly goods.
The third step on Fivefold Path is TAPA, self-discipline. This is to train the wayward mind
to learn to establish clear parameters to follow in life. One can affect discipline in the mind
by practicing discipline of physical body. One can gain control over one’s taste buds,
bringing the mind into a more disciplined state of being.
Tapa is an individual effort. For every person there is a Tapa or set of Tapas that will be
most effective for that person’s life. If one begins with reducing attachments to certain
foods, for example sweets, one can begin to gain control over errant thoughts, irrational
fears, and untamed desires in the world. TAPA is the way to discipline the muscle of MIND
and strengthen one’s resolve on Fivefold Path.
KARMA follows as fourth step on Fivefold Path. Every action has a reaction. Thus, sow
seeds of good Karma every day. No matter what your past was in this life, you can create
a new cycle by consciously sowing seeds of love, kindness in words and in actions. Find
ways to SERVE in every blessed day given to you by Grace. Karma opens the doors to
And lastly, there is SWADHYAYA, the fifth step on Fivefold Path.
Who am I? What am I here for?
It is beyond the concept of career or family or goals in the material world—though that can
also be benefitted.
By practice of Swadhyaya, one bravely faces oneself—the Light, the shadows, the joys,
the sorrows, the longings, the grace. One faces oneself with a clear, honest approach. The
answers to the question, “Who am I?” may not be immediate nor may they always make
logical sense to the mind.
Through meditation, one begins to open the doors to clarity, to vision and to the ushering
in of TRUTH.
Walking FIVEFOLD PATH is a lifetime of uncovering the many layers of the human being.
The Joy that can be uncovered is like no other.
Walk in Light.
This is the Path of Light, as revealed by Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj.
All love and blessings be with you all.

Homa at Indigenous Healing Event in Colombia
On Saturday, June 11, I participated in a national initiative of women who walk different paths of ancestral medicines. This took place in Plaza Bolivar, in the center of Bogota.
We came together in prayer and with the intention of creating a brighter reality for this country and the world.
We are experiencing a unique and powerful planetary moment. We are the ones called to make the transition from an ending, dense and challenging era into a new, glorious one with each being who expands consciousness and joins love and service. The sacred Homa fires cleanse and clarify the mind and heart of each being and fills them with truth and eternal light.
Experiences with Homa Therapy
Diego Walberto Lastra Rendón
In May 2016, after taking tests at Solca (Society to Fight Cancer), I was diagnosed with prostate cancer with tumor marker PCA 272, when the normal value is up to 4.
Three years after I had been diagnosed with this cancer, in 2019, I started practicing Homa Therapy. Although I had known it years before in Carondelet for its extraordinary results in agriculture, I had not practiced it. Thank God, Homa Therapy Teachers Abel and Aleta and Mother Sofía, Homa Therapy came into my life again. I began to practice the Homa healing fires regularly in the company of my wife.
Since 2019, now almost four years, I have not taken any medication. My only medicine is Agnihotra ash and the practice of the healing Agnihotra fire and additional fires such as Om Tryambakam Homa.
I regularly visit the doctor and in my last exam this year 2022, the PCA tumor marker was 1.1.
I thank God for the people who initiated me in the practice of Homa fires, the love of my family, and especially I am grateful to Homa Therapy.
From Shree Vasant’s Teachings
On Taking Responsibility
For all of you, learn to look for what is your part in a disagreement. Don’t be so swift to blame. Take responsibility for your part as soon as you become aware of it. If you become aware and say nothing, then it is like withholding evidence in a trial. Better to incriminate yourself. You cannot get away with the crime. Ultimately, all criminals get caught, at least in the web of karma.
On Fear and Desire
Fear is like a cancer. If it takes hold of the heart, there is no room for faith. Then never would the person truly believe what he experiences. Fear breeds doubt and ultimately if left unchecked it destroys one’s spiritual growth. One has to learn to be fearless.
One cannot rid oneself of fear by focusing on the fear or trying to reason with fear or find its origin. Certainly it is helpful to understand oneself but this mental exercise is not enough to uproot deep-seated fears. Fear can truly be extinguished by strengthening one’s faith in the Almighty Power. Practice of Swadhyaya (Self Study) will be helpful. Practice what we teach:
- Agnihotra-for purification of the atmosphere
- Daan-to bring about non-attachment through the sharing of assets in a spirit of humility and without expectation
- Tapa-for fruition of thy affirmations, one gets rid of lust, anger, greed, envy, pride and attachment
- Karma-the performance of right action
- Swadhyaya-Self Study, Who am I? Why am I here?
If you are truly consciously practicing these FIVE CONCEPTS your fear will loosen its hold.
When the fears come, they are only thoughts. Allow them to come and go. Do not support them. Understand that you have these fears. Allow for them to come up and then release them. Absolutely do not hang onto them. Do not focus on the fears. Just as in meditation, breathe in, breathe out. Thoughts come in, thoughts go out. Return to the Name of the Lord, the Mantra, Name of the Master or His Holy Feet. Then fear will go.
The same exercise can be done with desire. Do not suppress it. Let it come to mind, then release. If you pay no attention, it will not take root. It will be released until at last it is gone and you are free of it.
We have to be patient. It is a process of development which usually takes even many lifetimes. However, because the SUN HAS RISEN ON A NEW ERA we are given the greatest opportunity for getting rid of anger, fear and desire quickly, thus enabling us to reach the state:
Not my will, but Thy will be done.
I and my Father are One.
Fivefold Path for Happy Living
HOMA Therapy is the science of purification of the atmosphere through the agency of FIRE. AGNIHOTRA HOMA (YAJNYA) is the basic HOMA. It is tuned to the biorhythm of sunrise/sunset and gives nutrients to the plant kingdom, removes diseases in a certain area and removes tension on the mind. This is the basic process in the Vedic sciences of medicine, agriculture, climate engineering and interplanetary communication.
Sharing of your assets in a spirit of humility. This corrects imbalance in financial matters and creates non-attachment to worldly possessions.
Self-discipline of body and mind. This is conducive to a change in attitudes of mind and body. It results in a harmonious state of mind.
“You reap as you sow.” Always practicing good Karma (actions) diminishes the burden of negative Karma and one begins to invest in his own future. This means that what you do today will bring its fruits. Sowing seeds of love and kindness will bless my garden with plenty of love. Do Karma for self-purification.
Practice Swadhyaya (Self-study) for liberation. Who am I? Why am I here? My work on this planet is to learn to react with total LOVE with each opportunity given to me.
This is the Fivefold Path for happy living on the planet. By practicing the Fivefold Path you become better members of your society, group, religion, community, etc.
