What is Agnihotra?
Agnihotra is an ancient technology
in the Vedic life sciences.
Its practice induces a harmonizing resonance to heal the environment and self, through the element of fire.
The healing fire is prepared in a copper pyramid using gomai (cow dung) and ghee, the only suitable organic fuel for Agnihotra.
At the precise transitions of sunrise and sunset,
an Agnihotri (practitioner) chants Mantra
while giving whole brown rice mixed with ghee,
a representation of Self, to the fire.
Why practice Agnihotra?
Agnihotra attunes you to nature's Circadian rhythm,
bringing a sense of joy, mental clarity, and connection with nature.
Agnihotra in combination with Ayurvedic applications have been shown to:
Promote Wellbeing by:
increasing mental clarity

"Agnihotra has become a positive addition to my daily practice. The stillness and clarity it has brought has expanded my awareness, supporting balance and connection to myself and the world around me.
