What is Agnihotra?


Agnihotra is a Vedic fire technique that is based on the biorhythm of sunrise and sunset. It is the fundamental Homa fire technique and can already be found in the ancient Vedic scriptures. The ritual has also been mentioned in the Bible (Daniel 8.26).

“The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given you is true, but seal up the vision, for it concerns the distant future.”

The revival of Agnihotra took place with the aim of providing special help for the severe problems of our time: for purification of water, air, earth, and for the regeneration and harmonization of body, mind and soul.

The easily learned fire technique can be performed in a few minutes, regardless of religious affiliation or beliefs.


Agnihotra is performed at sunrise and sunset. During those times, a number of specified ingredients are burned in a pyramid-shaped copper vessel while particular sounds (mantras) are recited. These mantras match the particular vibrations of sunset and sunrise precisely.

At sunrise and sunset, nature is in an energetic state of perfectly balanced power. A serendipitous flood of subtle energies pours upon earth during this time.

According to the principle of resonance, a variety of valuable purifying and building energies are created when Agnihotra is performed. These energies are released into the atmosphere via the smoke and can be inhaled. They provide human beings and nature with supportive healing powers and enable the restoration of ecological balance.

Its beneficial effects extend over a radius of about 1.5 km and up to 12 km altitude.

We use the remaining highly vibrational Agnihotra ash very successfully in Homa agriculture and in Homa therapy.

Agnihotra Praxis

Agnihotra follows the principle

“Heal the atmosphere and the atmosphere will heal you.”

In this context, atmosphere does not only mean the aerial envelope of the earth. Moreover, it also intends to convey the subtle atmosphere that notably influences our moods and actions. A very strong harmonisation and purification takes place through the practice of Agnihotra – on subtle levels as well as in physically measurable fields.

Only when Agnihotra is performed properly will it reach its full effectiveness. Agnihotra is not an invention that can be improved through changes; it is revealed knowledge. It is already perfect in itself. Therefore, please do not alter Agnihotra. Here at the Homa-Hof Heiligenberg we spread Agnihotra in the original way in which it was given for the present time.

Agnihotra is easy to perform and takes only takes about ten minutes if properly prepared ... Read more
