Homa therapy is a vedic science dedicated to restoring the natural purity and balance of the atmosphere by way of fire. Homa therapy utilizes the yajnya of Agni Hotra and it’s attunement to the biorhythm of sunset and sunrise to replenish the atmosphere with nutrients to promote healing. The Agni hotra as I discussed in another blog utilizes the preparation of a small fire in a copper pyramid in which one places grains of rice, cow dung and ghee (clarified unsalted butter). Along with this burning ritual, two different vedic mantras are chanted to create certain energies in the environment that promote it’s revitalization and healing process.
Experimentation in places like Venezuela and Peru with Homa therapy in agricultural settings has produced pretty significant results. Apparently, when the Homa is performed in a garden or around trees, the leaves are the first to receive the smoke and then stimulates the generation of chlorophyll.
In Homa atmospheres, areas in which the precise sunset, sunrise rituals are practiced, the metabolism of the plant is activated causing the plant to receive more of the nutrients it’s in need of so that it can yield these same nutrients, healing the plant itself as well as the ecology around.
The basis of the concept of performing the ritual of homa therapy has to do with the susceptibility of plant life and all life in general to more subtle forces. Through the use of innovative, though ancient practices like homa therapy, we may actually have a chance at regenerating and restoring our denatured soils and plant life so that it can yield us the things that we need to sustain and be healthy.
