When thousands of people died in the union carbide gas leak disaster in the year 1984, five families living near Bhopal Railway station, survived in the above disaster only because they had been performing Agnihoma regularly for several generations now.
Agnihoma is the process of purifying the atmosphere through specially prepared fire. This healing fire comes down to us from the Vedas, the most ancient body of knowledge known to man. When the mantras are chanted energies are created by the rhythms of mantras. These energies generated are thrust into the atmosphere by fire. This, in addition to the qualities of the rare Herbal Homa Sambirani burned, produces the full effect of this healing HOMA (healing fire).
Agnihoma renews the brain cells, revitalizes the skin and purifies the blood. Many people who are normally allergic to smoke feel comfortable and experience a healing effect from the smoke emanating from the Agni Homakuntam. The healing effects of Agnihoma are locked in the resultant ash. Thousands of people in different parts of the world have experienced wonderful healings of all types of ailments by using Agnihoma ash.
Agnihoma also nourishes plant life and neutralizes harmful radiation and pathogenic bacteria. It harmonizes the functioning of Prana (life energy) and can be used to purify water resources.
