What is HOMA Therapy?

Simple things that we do have a great effect on the atmosphere. Burning generates energy. Man has known this for
thousands of years. But it helps generate even more subtle energies. By putting certain materials such as medicinal herbs
for example into specially prepared fires accompanied by certain word combinations, it is possible to remove toxic
conditions from the atmosphere, thereby healing and purifying it. That healing effect is then passed on to all life-forms
which are sustained by that atmosphere. This is HOMA THERAPY.

HOMA is a Sanskrit technical term from the Vedic science of bioenergy. The Vedas are the most ancient body of knowledge
known to mankind and describe several sciences including bioenergy, psychotherapy, medicine, agriculture, biogenetics,
climate engineering and inter-planetary communication. The central idea in HOMA Therapy is:

You heal the atmosphere and the healed atmosphere heals you.

Of all the HOMA fire practices given in the Vedas the basic one is known as AGNIHOTRA which is tuned to the biorhythm of

How Does Agnihotra Work?

• The sun brings or takes the energy, which makes all conditions conducive to an anti-pollutionary change. It calms
the world. The pyramid is the generator, the fire, the turbine. The cow dung, ghee (clarified pure cow's butter
without any additives) and rice then interact to form a composition which is thrust, surrounds, neutralizes and
nutritionalizes the material. Then, with organic substances, this provides the nutrients for survival, yield and
propagation. This is how the Agnihotra fire physically heals the atmosphere.
• Just at morning Agnihotra all the electricities, energies, ethers are attracted to the pyramid in its shape. At sunset
these energies are thrust out in same shape.
• This flood of energies at sunrise creates strong purifying effects on all levels wherever it touches the Earth.
• Agnihotra amplifies these purifying effects in the following way:

Page 1 of 24
o This flood of subtle energies carries music with it. The morning Agnihotra Mantra is the quintessential
sound of that flood.
o If you then prepare the fire in the prescribed copper pyramid, utter these mantras and offer the rice mixed
with ghee to the fire, then a channel is being created through all the atmosphere and PRANA - life energy,
is purified.
• Tremendous amounts of energy are gathered around the Agnihotra copper pyramid just at Agnihotra time. A
magnetic type field is created, one which neutralizes negative energies and reinforces positive energies.
• When Agnihotra fire is burnt there is not just energy from the fire. The rhythms and Mantras generate subtle
energies which are thrust into the atmosphere by fire. Also consider the quality of materials burnt wherein lies the
full effect of this healing HOMA.
• Therefore a positive pattern is created by one who does Agnihotra merely by his/her performance.

Effects of Agnihotra
• Agnihotra reduces tension on the mind.
• Agnihotra renews the brain cells. It revitalizes the skin. It purifies the blood. It provides the holistic approach to
• Agnihotra has the ability to neutralize pathogenic bacteria.
• You sit at Agnihotra fire and breathe in the smoke, which goes quickly into the bloodstream and lungs. This has
excellent effect on circulatory system and even more so if Agnihotra ash is ingested. The smoke has a good effect
on the brain and nervous system.
• If plants are kept in Homa atmosphere where vibrations of Agnihotra pyramid fire are maintained, one subtle
enough can actually see growth, communication etc. Plants receive nutrition from Agnihotra atmosphere, become
happy and grow well.
• Just as Agnihotra pyramid fire gives nourishment to plants, it provides the same for human life and animals.
• When Agnihotra is performed, the Agnihotra smoke gathers particles of harmful radiation from the atmosphere
and on a very subtle level neutralizes their radioactive effect. Nothing is destroyed, merely changed.
• Much healing energy emanates from the Agnihotra pyramid.
• An aura energy field is created around plants during Agnihotra. Thus plants become stronger and disease resistant.
• When the flame dies the energy is locked in the resultant ash. This ash is used for preparing various folk medicines.
• Thousands of people on all continents belonging to different races, languages, religions and spiritual groups who
practice Agnihotra have remarked that simply by performing daily HOMA, (i.e. Agnihotra sunrise/sunset) they feel
like a protective film surrounds them.

Materials Required for Agnihotra

• Copper pyramid of fixed size and shape
• Ingredients:
o dried cow dung cakes
o pure cow's ghee (clarified unsalted
o unpolished rice
• Mantra (vibration)
• Timetable of sunrise and sunset for your
particular place

Page 2 of 24
For Agnihotra you require a copper pyramid of specific size and shape. Copper is a conductor for subtle energies. Just at
morning Agnihotra all the electricities, energies, ethers are attracted to the pyramid in its shape. At sunset these energies
are thrust out in same shape.

Uncooked, unbroken pieces of rice preferably less polished or whole brown rice should be used for Agnihotra. If the rice is
broken the chemical analysis of both pieces may be the same but the subtle energy structure is broken and hence, it should
not be used for Agnihotra healing fire, states the ancient science of bioenergy.

Ghee (Clarified Butter):

Place pure UNSALTED, unadulterated butter from cow’s milk in a saucepan and bring it to a slow boil over low heat.
Remove and discard the white substance that rises to the top. Strain the liquid through a fine strainer. What passes
through is ghee. Store the ghee in a container. It does not have to be refrigerated. Please note ghee must be made from
only 100% pure cow’s milk.

Dried Cow Dung:

Dried cow dung cakes are used to prepare Agnihotra fire.
How to prepare dried cow dung: Make pancake-like patties from fresh cow dung and let them dry in the sun on a window
screen or similar material. Store the dry dung patties for daily use. Cow dung is medicinal. In all ancient cultures, like the
native Indians of North and South America, Scandinavians, Asians and Africans, cow dung applications are used for a variety
of ailments. In books of folk medicine practiced in Europe, one finds many references to cow dung as a medicinal
substance. When we use the words cow dung, we mean dung from the male or female progeny of the cow species only.

Morning Agnihotra mantra:

sooryáya swáhá, sooryáya idam na mama

prajápataye swáhá, prajápataye idam na mama

Evening Agnihotra mantra:

agnaye swáhá, agnaye idam na mama

prajápataye swáhá, prajápataye idam na mama

(Accented "á" is pronounced as the ‘a’ in father. Unaccented "a" is pronounced as the 'a' in mature.)

After each word swáhá offer one portion of rice/ghee to the fire.

Listen to the Mantras:

Sunrise Agnihotra
Sunset Agnihotra

Sunrise/Sunset Timetable:
Agnihotra is practised at exactly sunrise and sunset every day. Only at these two timings is it possible to catch the flood of
life-sustaining energies emanating from the sun and use them for the benefit of all living things. If you miss the exact timing
it is not Agnihotra and the powerful healing effect will be missing.

Page 3 of 24
How to Perform Agnihotra
Prepare the Fire

• Place a flat piece of dried cow dung at the bottom of the copper pyramid.
• Arrange pieces of dried cow dung, which have been coated with ghee in the pyramid in such a manner as that
allow air to pass.
• Apply a little ghee on the small piece of cow dung and light it. Insert this lighted piece of cow dung in the pyramid.
Soon all the dung in the pyramid will catch fire.
• You may use a hand fan to help the flame. However, do not blow through the mouth to avoid bacteria from the
mouth getting into the fire.
• Do not use any mineral oil or similar material to start the fire.
• At the exact time of sunrise and sunset when the offerings are made the fire should be fully ablaze in the pyramid.

Agnihotra Process

• Take a few grains of rice in a dish or your left palm and apply a few drops of ghee.
• Exactly at sunrise utter the first Mantra and after the word SWAHA add a few grains of rice from your right hand
(as little as you can hold in the pinch of your fingers will be sufficient) in the fire.
• Utter the second Mantra and after the word SWAHA add a few grains of rice from the right hand in the fire.
• At sunset do the same by using evening Mantras.
• Agnihotra Mantras are to be recited only once and only two offerings given at each Agnihotra performance.
• If you miss the timing it is not Agnihotra and you will not get the healing effect on the atmosphere or in the ash.
• After each Agnihotra try to spare as many minutes as you can for meditation. You can sit quietly at least till the fire
extinguishes itself. Agnihotra creates a medicinal and healing atmosphere.
• If possible the Agnihotra pyramid and the energy resulting from the Agnihotra process is best left undisturbed
until the next Agnihotra time. Just before the next Agnihotra you can empty the ash using your right hand and
store it in a bag, box, glass jar or clay pot. The ash from the Agnihotra fire is extremely medicinal. It can be ingested
daily. Several ash medicines have been developed in Germany. The ash is also a powerful fertilizer for the garden or
farm and beneficial in any water source to purify the water.

Agnihotra Mantras
Mantras are given in Sanskrit language which was nobody’s mother tongue at any time on Earth. All languages of the world
have words coming from Sanskrit. But there is not a single word in Sanskrit which comes from any other earthly language.
There are vibrations that exist everywhere. It is only vibrations when you go into it. Where there is vibration there is also
sound. When we do these Mantras, the sounds we utter activate these special vibrations that will create certain
atmosphere or effects. Then the desired results are realized. These vibrations exist for everything, so anything can be
activated, controlled or changed by Mantras.
When one utters the Mantra with a pure mind into the Agnihotra pyramid at Agnihotra time, the ash retains that energy
and the healing properties of the ash become more powerful.

Agnihotra Mantras
At Sunrise

sooryáya swáhá, sooryáya idam na mama

(after the word swáhá, add the first portion of rice/ghee into the fire)

prajápataye swáhá, prajápataye idam na mama

(after the word swáhá, add the second portion of rice/ghee into the fire)
This completes morning Agnihotra.

At Sunset

agnaye swáhá, agnaye idam na mama

(after the word swáhá, add the first portion of rice/ghee into the fire)

prajápataye swáhá, prajápataye idam na mama

(after the word swáhá, add the second portion of rice/ghee into the fire)
This completes evening Agnihotra.

(á is pronounced like a in 'father')

Discplines Associated with Agnihotra

• It is better to take bath and put on clean clothes before doing Agnihotra and other Homas but if not possible then
at least wash hands, feet and mouth.
• Avoid unnecessary talk around the pyramid (magnifies the energy).

Menstrual Period Discipline

• For 4 days from the commencement of the menstrual period or until flow of blood ceases, ladies should abstain
from practice of Agnihotra and other HOMAS.
• This is a time of cleansing for the woman.
• The woman can spend more time in meditation and others can prepare food for her.
• Also, she need not work in the garden as the energy may affect the plants.
• These practices are a part of many ancient cultures, including native American cultures, Jewish culture, etc.

Nature heals, but what do we do when Nature Herself needs healing... due to saturated levels of pollution in
Her atmosphere, water and soil?
Agnihotra is a super science from ancient wisdom, given in these times as an antidote to pollution.

AGNIHOTRA is the pivotal Healing Fire of HOMA THERAPY

Agnihotra is a gift to humanity from the ancient most Vedic sciences of bioenergy, medicine, agriculture and climate
engineering. This super science from Ayurveda, involves a small fire burnt in a seamless inverted copper pyramid of specific
Page 5 of 24
dimensions. A Sanskrit mantra (the correct resonance) is uttered while placing a small amount of unpolished brown rice
and ghee into the fire at the precise moment of sunrise and sunset. It is a simple 10-minute process, yet it is healing entire
environments, including farmland and crops and is also restoring the mental, emotional and physical health of people all
over the world.

By performing Agnihotra regularly a biosphere is built wherein pollution is neutralised, the environment is vitalised and
nourished and a special peaceful atmosphere is created. Sitting in an Agnihotra atmosphere heals the mental, emotional
and physical bodies from stress and tension so nicely, delicately, effortlessly.

The more people who perform Agnihotra the better for the environment
If each person does their own Agnihotra they receive maximum benefit personally while at the same time the more people
who perform Agnihotra in a particular place the more healing energy generated for the area. In this way each person is
taking responsibility for the environment and receives maximum positive feedback from all that dwells in the environment
and is benefiting from your effort. For example, each family member may like to have their own pyramid in which to do
their own Agnihotra. One can breathe in the healing smoke, which quickly enters into the bloodstream and lungs
introducing prana into the body. This has an excellent effect on the respiratory system and circulatory system. These
effects are magnified when the ash is ingested. A scientist from Eastern Europe who has worked with Agnihotra for several
years informed us that if one ingests Agnihotra ash first thing in the morning, then even if one ingests radioactive food
thereafter the damage will be minimal.

The ash from Agnihotra fires is potent with life-force / Prana. It can be used as effective healing medicine.

AGNIHOTRA: Daily detox of our environment and ourselves

There is a super science from Ayurveda that can reverse the polluted conditions and lack of Love in this world. Let me
introduce you to HOMA THERAPY, for healing of Nature, ourselves and for sanctuary during the ecological turbulence
over the years to come.

Due to pollution the planet is deteriorating rapidly. The 2005 Stern Report revealed that 2/3 of the planets ecological
systems are disturbed and states that we have less than 10 years before total ecological and economic catastrophe. Such
reports leave the public feeling powerlessness and not knowing what to do or how to feel. Our sensitive youth faced with
such a future often turn to drugs and denial in consumerism.

The good news is that there is a solution – easy to apply and with fast results.
Homa Therapy is a super science from Ayurveda that heals nature.

We have forgotten how to give back to nature. We consume and consume – air, water, the plant, animal and mineral
kingdom – for food, shelter and energy resources. It is only natural.

Page 6 of 24
What is not natural is the over- consuming and polluting at the same time. We have forgotten how to grow food naturally.
The use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides is destroying the delicate ecosystems of nature, creating
disturbance in nature and us as we daily accumulate the chemicals in our body from the food we eat. And now with the
growing of genetically modified crops we are disturbing the very fabric of life itself.

Homa Therapy is able to reverse the effects of pollution. Even radioactivity can be neutralised with this ancient science.

So what is this simple technology we call Homa Therapy?

The key is a healing Fire called AGNIHOTRA.

A small fire is burnt in a small inverted copper pyramid accompanied by specific Sanskrit resonance at the exact moment of
sunrise and sunset. It takes 10 minutes to perform yet the results are awesome.

It works according to the principles of resonance.

"At sunrise the many fires, electricities, ethers and more subtle energies [or pranas] emanating from the sun extend all the
way down to the coordinates where the sun is said to rise. It is awesome. The flood enlivens and purifies everything in its
path, destroying what is impure in its wake….." (Vasant Paranjpe)
Performance of Agnihotra draws life sustaining energies, from this flood to the copper pyramid. Healing is thrust into the
atmosphere. Prana in abundance is drawn down from the solar range enabling nature to heal itself.

Everything is enlivened by life force called PRANA in Sanskrit .The source of prana is the sun. A polluted atmosphere blocks
and distorts prana. Distorted prana produces distorted mental states. To sit for Agnihotra is to experience stress melting

If Agnihotra is performed as prescribed the basic effect reaches up to 12 kilometers into the atmosphere and a ¾ km
diameter around the copper pyramid.

Who benefits?

• The individual who performs the Agnihotra.

• One’s household.
• One’s veggie garden or organic farm, one’s animals.
• One’s neighborhood within the ¾ km area.
• It has been observed that crime rates drop in areas where Agnihotra is performed regularly by several people.
• The planet: Agnihotra de-toxes nature and us and helps to keep the energy cycles of the planet in harmony.

Homa Organic Farming is one of its practical applications at a very intense time in the world where shortage of clean
food and water is rife.

On our Homa farm in the Hunter Valley NSW we dramatically improved the quality of our bore water through Agnihotra
and ash application. When we first sank our bore the water tested highly saline and far too alkaline for growing plants. We
performed Agnihotra by the bore a few times and placed Agnihotra ash down the bore hole. With each successive
laboratory test over a period of some months the bore water showed improvement until we had high quality potable

In Peru farmers who were at the point of abandoning their diseased crops and land are experiencing total rejuvenation of
their crops through the application of Homa Therapy.
There are literally hundreds of reports of wonderful results for every sort of crop and also for animals, bees, etc.
It was noted by Agronomical engineers employed by the Peruvian Govt. that neighboring plantations also registered
rejuvenation in their crops as Agnihotra covers a large are, while locals, sick with diseases such as breast cancer, asthma

Page 7 of 24
and skin problems were sitting for the Fire applying ash medicine [Agnihotra ash mixed with ghee] and experiencing all
kinds of remarkable healing including healing of cancer.

In fact there are several GP’s in South America whose practice revolves around Homa Therapy as they are having
excellent results with all kinds of physical diseases including the so-called incurables. Please see

The most wonderful reports regularly come in from all over the world in relation to mental and emotional healing.
Here is a report that demonstrates how the medicinal atmosphere created by Agnihotra improves all areas of life.

A middle aged woman in Sydney, Australia took up Agnihotra. She practiced regularly in her garage. Her husband was not
supportive or involved. He spent little time with the family and when home just wanted to be undisturbed with his TV and
meal. After about a month of practicing Agnihotra this woman could not help observing great changes in her husband. He
started emailing her love letters from work, he started requesting fresh, vital food , started drinking water and taking more
time out with the family. One of the most beautiful things that happened was he started communicating with his teenage
children and one evening at the dinner table tears came into his eyes as he apologised for being so remote throughout their
upbringing. His feeling nature was healing. He also experienced healing of dysentery after a trip to Asia just by drinking
water charged with Agnihotra ash medicine

Agnihotra's effectiveness is because it goes to the core of the problem – the mind. As mentioned before prana and mind
are inextricably linked. By healing the atmosphere the mind receives healing; so much so, that de-addiction has been
known to occur in Homa atmosphere without withdrawal symptoms.

Finally I would like to address the issue of earth changes, the reality of which confronts us every night on the news and for
many, tragically, very directly through floods, earth quakes, famine, wars, plagues, violence etc all of which are occurring
on an unnaturally intense level. There is definitely personal healing and awakening happening for many however the planet
is still shuddering under the weight of pollution. Nature is throwing off this burden through what we call natural disasters.

I would like to leave you with an account of the protective power of these Homa biospheres.
The Bhobal [India] tragedy in 1984:
On Dec.2 1984 there was a massive toxic leakage of Methyl Isocyanine gas from Union Carbide factory killing 10s of
thousands and maiming even more. In the midst of this horrendous occurrence, a miracle happened which made
researchers all over the world sit up and think: 5 families in the middle of it all remained unaffected. The only factor that
was different for these people was that they had been regularly practicing Agnihotra for several years.

How to Perform Agnihotra

Preparing the Agnihotra fire:

Place one piece of cowdung on the bottom of the pyramid, and place more pieces with ghee on them around the inside
of the pyramid, leaving an opening in the middle. For fires done in apartments and other indoor locations a small fire
will suffice, but for agricultural purposes where a lot of ash is desired, it is preferable to build a larger fire.

Page 8 of 24
Apply ghee to both sides of the piece of dung which will be placed in the center.

The rice offering consists of two pinches of raw brown rice (a pinch is the amount you can hold in your fingertips). Place
in a dish and remove the broken pieces.

Page 9 of 24
Add enough ghee to moisten the rice. Separate the rice into two portions.

Light the fire several minutes before the time on the timesheet, so the dung will be fully ablaze at the exact time. A large
fire will need to be started earlier than a small one. Thicker dung needs more time to fully ignite.

Page 10 of 24
At the time on the sheet, begin the mantra, adding one of the portions of rice and ghee after "Swaha". Continue
the mantras, adding the second offering after "Swaha"

Page 11 of 24
This completes Agnihotra. It is preferable to sit quietly or meditate until the fire goes out.

For the maximum effect of the interplay of subtle energies of Agnihotra, one should not disturb the pyramid or add ghee
after the mantras has been chanted and rice and ghee have been added to the fire. If circumstances permit, it is best
not to disturb the pyramid until it is time to set up for the next performance of Agnihotra.

Agnihotra & Homa Therapy as Medicine

Agnihotra Heals the Mind and Emotional Body.
When sitting for Agnihotra stress dissolves and the mind is effortlessly brought into balance, harmony and centeredness.
Meditation comes very easily and deeply in the atmosphere of Agnihotra.
All the subtle bodies are instantly aligned when the mantra is uttered at the correct time of Sunrise or Sunset. Because of
this it is an optimum time to visualise, affirm, pray, meditate, send healing etc.

Om Tryambakam Homa is good psychotherapy.

When combining Om Tryambakam [eg 1 hour per day] with daily performance of Agnihotra, you will find it is an effective
means to ‘process stuff’. You can sit down to perform Om Tryambakam Homa in a troubled, anxious, disturbed, shattered
or scattered state of mind and get up an hour later, for example having reached some resolve or balance and peace. Try it!
However it should be noted that one never replaces the performance of Agnihotra with Om Tryamabakam Homa as
Agnihotra is the energy generator for all other Homas making them effective.

Deep Healing of the subconscious.

Agnihotra transforms the mind. Physical and emotional health depends on one’s thought patterns and karma. True healing
starts in the mind. It is said in the bible- “Be ye transformed by the renewal of the mind”.
This is precisely what Agnihotra helps to do and this renewal is quickened when adding Om Tryambakam Homa to your
daily disciplines. Agnihotra creates a good foundation for self-enquiry, the foundation of a happy mind, when all stress and
tension on the mind are dissolved.
Agnihotra is highly conducive to the ‘witness state’ or non-attachment.

Generational Patterns
In fact when Agnihotra and Homa Therapy is seriously incorporated into ones daily life, healing of generational patterns
takes place, releasing 7 generations before us and 7 generations ahead of us.

Page 12 of 24
Any form of addiction, whether to drugs, cigarettes, coffee, alcohol, food, sex, obsessive thoughts, destructive behaviour
etc, is an attempt to find some relief in life, some happiness.
Repeating this behaviour forms grooves in the mind which are very difficult to erase.

Agnihotra transforms the mind. As such Homa Therapy lends itself to de-addiction. It is known in Homa Therapy that
detoxification of addictive substances takes place without painful withdrawal symptoms.

A De-addiction program has been developed utilising Homa Therapy which involves:

• A live-in period in Homa atmosphere.

• Twice daily sitting for Agnihotra.
• 1 Hour of performing Om Tryambakam daily.
• Work in Homa atmosphere in Nature. Working in nature is very healing for the mind and
body and is immensely so in Homa atmosphere.
• Healthy vegetarian diet including 1 week of juice fast.
• Evening program to help the mind to develop positive patterns – similar to the 12 step Program of
Alcoholics Anonymous.


There are 100’s of documented reports from medical doctors in Sth America re the healing of all sorts of problems including
the so-called incurable diseases. See

Agnihotra and its Ash

The ash from Agnihotra is highly medicinal. It is full of Prana and all micro nutrients in perfect balance for health. Only the
ash from Agnihotra is medicinal. The ash from Om tryambakam or other Homas is not medicinal. The ash must be fully
consumed by the Agnihotra Fire. If the burning is incomplete the ash is not medicinal. You will notice the rice remains as
black granules. That is still fully consumed.
The ash is more efficacious when taken in combination with regular performance of Agnihotra.

Also it is more beneficial when actually performing Agnihotra than simply just sitting in.
If there are several people in the family or community open to Agnihotra it is optimal for the healing of the environment
and for the healing of the individuals to each have a pyramid and to each do Agnihotra. The more Agnihotras performed in
an area the greater the healing on all counts.

To Detox, Maintain Health and for Treatment of Illness:

See Monica Koch’s book ‘Homa Therapy, The Ancient Science of Healing’.

In General:

1. Perform Agnihotra twice daily or as often as your life style will allow.
Sit with spine straight and directly square with the pyramid on the East or West side. A sick person or
animal should sit as closely to the Eastern side of the pyramid as possible. Just before Agnihotra take a
pinch of ash on its own or in water.
2. Take ½ tsp ash at least 3 times per day.
3. Put a tsp of ash in a jug of water. Stir around and let settle. Allow the ash to charge up the water for 3
days. Let that be the water you and your family drink. Thereafter keep topping up with water and every
now and then add more ash. The jug needs to be of glass or ceramic, not plastic or metal other than
Page 13 of 24
4. Put a couple of handfuls of ash regularly in your water tank or water supply eg once a week.
5. Make a ready supply of ash and ghee ointment or crème and apply to any problem area such as a bruise,
a twisted ankle, skin problems like psoriasis or eczema, over a painful organ or in the area of a tumour, on a sore
throat etc. Apply ash and ghee on an open wound, except a ‘wet’ oozing wound, then apply dry
Agnihotra ash powder,. The ghee will conduct the healing qualities of the ash into the body
where it is required.
6. Purify and magnify the healing properties of any natural remedy by placing on the Eastern side of the
pyramid at Agnihotra sunset and leave there to receive the benefits of Agnihotra sunrise.

How to produce Agnihotra Ash medicines eg. suppositories, crèmes, eye drops etc – see Homa Therapy the Ancient
Science of Healing.

Types of Homa

"Agnihotra Hut, Om Shree Dham" "Om Tryambakam Homa on the Farm"

There are several different types of Homas utilized in Homa Therapy. Below are the most frequently utilised Homas for
Homa Therapy.
Each type of Homa has a specific Sanskrit mantra that is recited during the fire. All the Homas in Homa Therapy are
performed in an inverted copper pyramid of specific size, the same size as utilised for Agnihotra.
It is best to reserve one copper pyramid for Agnihotra and another for the other Homas.
Select the mantra (AUDIO) link below to hear and read the mantras.

Agnihotra (AUDIO)
The primary Homa fire. This Homa is only performed at the exact moment of sunrise and sunset .
Agnihotra is the "energy generator" for all of the other Homas.

Vyahruti Homa AUDIO

This can be practiced any time except at Agnihotra time (sunrise/sunset) to:

• Innitiate all other Homas other than Agnihotra

• Harmonise the Atmosphere
• Innitiate new activities with a foundation of good energy eg a healing session, a meeting, a class etc.
• Help Resolve Conflict

This Homa is particularly beneficial to bring balance to the atmosphere. Wonderful to start a meeting, gathering, project,
class etc. It helps to centre people in the Heart and bring clarity to the mental atmosphere. Vyahruti Homa is particularly

Page 14 of 24
useful to perform when there is disharmony or conflict between people. Stop and perform Vyahruti. More often than not,
clarity, harmony and solutions arrive after the Vyahruti Homa.

Om Tryambakam Homa AUDIO

This can be practiced at any time except at Agnihotra time:

• to fortify the atmosphere created by Agnihotra

• to maintain mental and emotional balance
• to help process ones issues

This Homa is an ongoing Homa. It may be practiced for as short or as long a time period as desired. Practice of this Homa is
a great aid in maintaining healthy states of mind as it helps to surface unresolved or suppressed issues. Depending on the
issue it can often be an automatic process of purification, like mind-maintenance. When the issues run deep, the Fire brings
them to our attention so we can work towards resolving them. This Homa has had tremendous benefits for those
struggling with psychological conditions or addictions.

This Homa is also very beneficial in clearing stress and mental pollution in the atmosphere. Hence on Full and New Moons,
times when it has been witnessed that emotional disturbance and crime are more prevalent in society, it is recommended
that people who perform Agnihotra gather together to perform 24 hours of Om Tryambakam Homa, around the peaking of
the moon cycle, as a service to their community.

Om Tryambakam Homa is also utilised for Organic Farming as it fortifies the biosphere created by Agnihotra and further
saturates the atmosphere with the ghee particles carried on the smoke. Ghee is a carrier agent for the uplifting resonance
of the mantras and the micro-nutrients.

Both Vyahruti Homa and Om Tryambakam Homa derive their potency from the energetic foundation created
by the regular practice of Agnihotra.

How to Perform Vyahruti Homa:

Build a small Fire in the pyramid, chant the mantra once and from one full spoon add a drop of ghee after swaha for the
first 3 swahas and then the remaining ghee on the spoon is added to the Fire after the final swaha.

How to Perform Om Tryambakam Homa:

After the Vyahruti Homa is performed, chant the Om Tryambakam mantra. At the end of Om Tryambakam mantra is a
‘swaha’ After the word ‘swaha’, add a drop of ghee into the Fire. Repeat the mantra and add another drop of ghee into the
Fire. Thus you can go on doing the Homa for hours together. People can take turns doing this Homa. This way one can keep
continuous Homa Fire going which strengthens the atmosphere created by performance of sunrise/sunset Agnihotra.

Homa Psychotherapy & De-addiction

Homa Psychotherapy & De-addiction

By practice of Agnihotra you will notice that tension on the mind

disappears and you begin to experience peace. The mind is reshaped so
nicely, so delicately, so effortlessly by sitting in Agnihotra atmosphere.

Our mind is dependant upon a harmonious flow of Prana energy which

connects us with the cosmos. But because of today's pollution, especially
thought pollution (negative thoughts and emotions which permeate our
atmosphere) this flow of energy is blocked and we feel pressure on the

Resonance Point

A Resonance Point is a special arrangement of 10 pyramids which have been activated with Mantra. The Resonance Point is established
on a Homa farm to magnify the power and increase the coverage of Agnihotra.
The Resonance Point Technique is a part of HOMA Therapy, where simple practices are used to heal bigger areas of diseased plantations

in a short time. The same human effort is required to heal one or one hundred acres. Therefore one Resonance Point can be used to heal
up to 200 acres of land.
For this, two simple huts are needed, built with locally available, economical and natural material, found in the area like: wood, adobe
bricks, mats, bamboo, stone, cane, etc. Nobody will live there. They are simply to protect the person performing the healing fires of

HOMA Therapy from the sun, rain and to prevent animals like dogs, cats, chickens, horses, etc. from entering. It should be quite
inexpensive to build these huts or cabins.
Also four Resonance Columns are installed on the boundary of the farm in each of the four cardinal directions from the main Resonance

Page 17 of 24
Agnihotra Hut

One hut, the main hut or Agnihotra hut, is where the AGNIHOTRA fire is performed daily at sunrise and sunset. It is ideal to build this hut
in the centre of the farm, if possible. Size should be approx. 3 x 4 meters, the longer side aligned with the EAST/WEST axis. Entrance has
to be from the WEST and one will sit down facing EAST to do the fires.

Om Tryambakam Hut

This hut is to be little larger than the Agnihotra Hut (4x5m). We call it the OM TRYAMBAKAM HUT. The fires are done for agriculture, yet

the whole area becomes full of nutrients and a healing area is created for sick plants, animals and human beings. In this OM
TRYAMBAKAM HUT or "HEALING HUT", 2 pyramids are installed on small columns of mud. The one on the left is for AGNIHOTRA, and the
one on the right is for OM TRYAMBAKAM HOMA.
It is better to construct this hut near the entrance of the farm so that outsiders can come and go without disturbing the privacy of those

who live and/or work on the farm.

You have to face EAST while doing HOMA

Resonance Pillars

There are four resonance pillars which are installed on the north, south, east and west points directly from the Agnihotra or "Resonance"
Hut in the center of the farm.

To heal sick plants, to rejuvenate the earth and to improve the quality of the water, AGNIHOTRA should be carried out daily on exact
schedule, given by computer according to the longitude and latitude of the specific farm, and besides a minimum of 4 hours of OM
TRYAMBAKAM HOMA should be performed daily. On full Moon or new Moon, 24 hours or the most possible number of hours of OM
TRYAMBAKAM HOMA should be performed. These guidelines are to be followed in order:

* to heal plants from fungi, bacteria, harmful insects, nematodes, weevils, viruses, etc.

* to control weeds
* to produce abundant and healthy crops.

Om Tryambakam Homa

With the Tryambakam Homa, same as with the Vyahruti Homa, it is important to
practice regularly Agnihotra.

In this HOMA there is only one Mantra and after the word Swaha you add a drop of
ghee to the fire. Repeat the Mantra and again add a drop of ghee. You can do this for
any period of time continuously. However, if it is sunrise or sunset time while you are
doing this HOMA then actually at that time you utter Agnihotra Mantra and add the
mixture of rice and ghee ot the fire as stated in Agnihotra HOMA procedure.
It is good if one can do this HOMA at night in a room where a child is sleeping. It has a
good effect on the child. There are thousands of people in all continents who practice
this HOMA regularly in the evening for fifteen minutes in their homes.
For HOMA Farming this HOMA is done for four hours consecutively by people taking
turns. If a new person sits for fifteen minutes he would like to sit for a longer period
next time as he experiences the healing effect. As stated before this HOMA can be
done in a place where Agnihotra HOMA fire is practiced regularly.
In U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia there are hundreds of places
where this HOMA fire is kept for several hours a day. This HOMA fire can be maintained
round the clock continuously and the atmosphere becomes very healling.
If there are enough people available they can perform twenty-four hours Om
Tryambakam HOMA on full moon and no moon days. Full moon, no moon is a very
special cycyle which has terrific impact on the mind. The word 'lunatic' meaning a mad
persona comes from luna meaning moon.

Vyahruti Homa

In order to practice this HOMA, one should regularly practice AGNIHOTRA at sunrise
and sunset, since it is AGNIHOTRA, which creates the Basic Healing Cycle.

This HOMA can be done at any time of the day or night except at AGNIHOTRA time, i.e.
basic fire at sunrise and sunset.
We prepare the fire in the same way as Agnihotra. There are four
Mantras. After each of the first, second and third Mantras add a few drops of ghee to
the fire. After the fourth Mantra add a spoonful of ghee to the fire.
This HOMA can be done before you start any gathering or meeting. It creates a nice
atmosphere for the people who attend.
This HOMA can e done by a single person, a family or a group of people. Try to
meditate or at least sit in silence till the fire is
extinguished or a little longer if you wish.

Following are the materials needed:

1) copper pyramid of a prescribed size
2) dried cow dung patties
3) clarified unsalted cow's butter (ghee)
4) integral rice (unbroken grains)
5) timetable for your place (is sent free of charge)
6) a watch showing hour, minutes and seconds
(check your watch on radio)
7) matches (no lighters)
8) instructive Homa Therapy tape with Mantras

Ghee Preparation:
Ghee is the only fuel allowed for the practice of the HOMA HEALING FIRES.
Take pure cow's butter without salt and without any additives. It is important that the
butter is WITHOUT SALT. Please do not use any aluminum pots to prepare the ghee. It
should be heated on low fire and when the white foam starts coming up remove it with a
wooden ladle.
Once this white foam no longer rise to the surface and you can see the bottom of the pot
clearly (the liquid becomes transparent, golden), you can turn off the fire. Sometimes
there are remains, which stay at the bottom. After cooling down pour only the golden
liquid through a fine strainer of cloth or paper towel. The strained liquid is GHEE (clarified

age doesn't matter in the process of the HOMA fires. Ghee, according to AYURVEDA, is a
very special medicinal substance when used in the fire of AGNIHOTRA. The Ghee acts as a
carrier of subtle healing energies.

Preparation of dried cow dung:

It is ideal to pick up the fresh cow (bull or

calf) manure and to immediately prepare
"patties" and dry them in the sun. You can
allow them to dry first on one side and later
turn them to the other side. You can also use
a net, attached to a frame, so that they can
dry at the same time on both sides. If the
patties are completely dry, pick them up and
use them for the healing fires. It is
recommended to store big quantities of
dried cow dung patties in order to have Preparing patties from fresh cow manure.

the right hand. Apply a little ghee to the body of rice.

How to read the timetable?

The timetable has a column on the very left, showing the days of the month (1 to 31). In
continuation the different months are mentioned and under every month there are two
columns of numbers. One column says SR = sunrise, the other says SS = sunset. When
there are 5 numbers, the first number indicates the hour, the next two numbers indicate
the minutes and the last two numbers indicate the seconds. When there are only 4
numbers, only minutes and seconds are indicated.
Shown on the timetable is the exact time for each day of sunrise and sunset for a certain
place. Exactly at that indicated moment you begin to sing the Mantra (evening/morning
Agnihotra Mantra) and put the two portions of rice into the fire with the word "Suaha".

With what to light the fire?

Use wooden matches. Do not use lighters. If one needs more time to light a piece of dried
cow dung with Ghee, use a candle and light the cow dung above the flame of the candle;

Page 22 of 24
do not lift the candle over the pyramid. These healing fires cannot be polluted with wax,
burned matches or other substances. ONLY THE INGREDIENTS (dried cow dung, integral

Anybody who is able to utter the Mantras can and should perform the Agnihotra.
reason is very simple: these techniques work with subtle energies coming from the sun. In
the process these energies are thrown up into space (12 km). Women's energy during
menstruation is connected with the element earth that is a descending energy. When
women in period do the fires, the energies collide and diminish the healing effect. For this
reason it does not recommendable to practice the fires in these days. In the first 4 days of
menstruation the energy flow is directed downwards.
Normally on the fifth day, after taking a complete shower (from head to feet) the woman
is ready to do the healing fires. (Exception, when the flow after the 4th day is heavier than
in the first days. Then better to wait, till the flow stops completely.)
During menstruation women do not prepare or handle the Ghee, cow dung or any other
of the materials and ingredients necessary for Agnihotra and other healing fires. We
recommend strongly that another person living in the same household, who does the fires
during this time, takes a shower right before Agnihotra time in order to take maximum
advantage of the healing effects.
There are copper accessories available that make the handling easier, like spoons,
spatulas, plates, tweezers, base, covers, etc. but some of these items can be substituted
with wooden, porcelain, glass or clay materials.
NO other metals than copper are used in connection with these Ayurvedic healing fires.
