Agnihotra is a millennia-old Vedic fire ritual that - if correctly executed - has a beneficial impact on people, nature and the atmosphere. It is based on the biorhythm of the sun and the earth and can be carried out twice a day, exactly at sunrise and sunset.

Its revival, especially in Europe and North America, is like a gift. It offers special help for the serious problems of today: cleaning of water, air and earth as well as regeneration and harmonization of body, mind and soul.

In earlier times, cleaning or energizing fires were part of the everyday life of many cultures, also here in Europe, such as the Celts.


Agnihotra is easy to learn and can be done in a matter of minutes - regardless of religion or belief.

You need the exact times for sunrise and sunset for the respective position (place of execution), you can calculate and print them out using the link on this page, or you can find it on various other pages on the net.

A fire made of dried cow manure and clarified butter ("ghee") is ignited in a precisely defined copper pyramid ("Havan Kund"). When the time is right - the fire should burn well- two portions of uncooked rice are added to the fire (about half a fingernail mixed with a drop of ghee), while two mantras (Sanskrit verses) are recited aloud or in thought.

Application & effects

When performing Agnihotra, the principle of resonance creates a variety of valuable, powerful and cleansing energies. They give healing, constructive powers for people and nature and enable the ecological balance to be harmonized and restored.

Its beneficial effects extend within a radius of approximately 1.5 km and up to 12 km in height. (see lots of information from Homa Hof Heiligenberg)

Frequently confirmed effects are: nearby plants grow in the direction of the shell, watering with ash water starts the reproductive cycle of the plants immediately, neutralization of proven harmful radiation of any kind up to radioactivity. Agnihotra also removes all kinds of toxins and is used to detoxify the body and mind as well as to clean the soil, air and water.

Anyone who practices it seriously and regularly has something to report. I personally know experiences / successes with chemtrails, for the overall atmosphere in the yard and garden, in fruit and vegetable growing and with the personal development and harmonization / healing of people ... cold-blooded people became softer and warmer over time, which has a big impact in life.

The remaining high-energy ash can be reused well, e.g. in agriculture (added to irrigation water or potting soil) or as white ash in cosmetics and food or for home therapy.

White ash is calcined ash, which means that all organic components have been burnt white at high temperatures, i.e. they are purely inorganic, purified components that can be safely used internally and externally in humans and animals.

You will find other numerous and very creative applications on the Internet.

Agnihotra has only properly carried out its full effectiveness. Components, dishes and timing are precisely coordinated. It is not an invention that can be improved by changes or adapted to personal preferences, but rather revealed knowledge.

Agnihotra - a little field trip

Agnihotra is the basic of a total of four rituals, which are summarized under the name Yajnya Homa.

Yajna originally means worship, devotion, prayer. With a yajna, as in all sacred rites, the blessing of the gods was requested - especially here about Agni, the sacred energy of fire. The offering, usually ghee or rice, was seen as a microcosm that was intended to bring man into line with the macrocosm. Yajna also means contacting the offerer with his true self (Atman). Making a real sacrifice means doing something with gratitude, humility and joy that helps other people in their development.

Homa or 'Havan' is a Sanskrit word that refers to all rituals in which offerings are placed in a blessed, holy fire. They are an important religious practice in Hinduism, where they play a role in most sanskar (samskara) ceremonies, but also in Buddhism (especially in the Tibetan and Japanese Vajrayana traditions) and Jainism.

General procedure for a homa

  • · Lighting and blessing the sacrificial fire
  • · Invoking / calling one or more (protective) deities
  • · Making offerings (whether real or visualized) for the respective gods in the fire as a transport medium to them, together with reciting the prescribed prayers and mantras.

The terms "Veda" and "Vedic" are also used in India in a broader sense with the meaning "knowledge" and refer not only to the tradition of Vedic chants, but also to religious and secular knowledge par excellence.
