What is Agnihotra?

Agnihotra, a simple healing fire from the ancient science of Ayurveda, is the antidote for all the problems we have created for ourselves and for the whole of Nature.

Agnihotra is a process of purifying the atmosphere through a specially prepared fire. It is the smallest and basic Yajnya or Homa (Sanskrit terms for healing Fires).

The process involves preparing a small fire with dried cow-dung in a copper pyramid of fixed size and putting some grains of rice and ghee (clarified unsalted butter) into the fire exactly at sunrise and sunset accompanied by the chant of two simple mantras.

Who can practise Agnihotra?

Anyone in any walk of life can do Agnihotra and heal the atmosphere in his or her own home. Thousands of people all over the world have experienced that Agnihotra reduces stress, leads to greater clarity of thought, improves overall health, gives one increased energy, and makes the mind more full of love.
