YAGNA (Fire Ceremony): Homa Therapy
In ancient times the balance of nature and the well-being of its human inhabitants was maintained by communities practicing Vedic healing fires. Remnants of these fires are found in historical records of the Celts, Inca and Native American cultures, to name only a few. Some surviving indigenous cultures still practice fire ceremonies today, although much of it’s science is lost.
There are two basic energy systems in the physical world: heat and sound. In performing Yagna, these two energies, namely, the heat from Yagna’s fire and the sound of the chanting of the Gayatri and other Vedic Mantras, are blended together to achieve the desired physical, psychological and spiritual benefits.
By offering substances and volatile oils like sandalwood, camphor, clove, pine (just to name a few) to the fire and singing the Mantras, we will cleanse the air, the soil and our human bodies and refresh the whole eco system with new energy. Performing this ritual together with an experienced facilitator has a strong potential to bring us together as a group, reminding us of the connection between us as a human family and the environment.
