“I am 39 years old. I started with the practice of Agnihotra because I had a varicose ulcer on my leg. The ulcer was a hole about 3 cm deep. I was afraid, so I started Agnihotra in the morning and afternoon. Taking the Agnihotra ash orally and applying itwith ghee, the wound healed completely after 4 months. I did not take any other medicine.
But the first change I felt with the practice of Agnihotra was in my character. I had a very impulsive nature. I was easily upset by anything. When I spoke, I did not care if I hurt the other person. I lost so many jobs because of this. I would get angry and leave. I would raise my voice and I would not listen to anyone. If a car passed by me, I got angry easily and began to argue.
Agnihotra changed all this. Also, my dad taught me to repeat the “OM SHREE” Mantra mentally and breathe deeply before reacting. All this is very effective and I feel that my character has changed about 90 percent. Now I lead another way of life.
If I stop doing Agnihotra, I notice the change in my character. When I get angry, I feel something coming up inside of me. But now I can control it; before I could not. The next morning, I do Agnihotra fire and feel the calmness. Now I live a very happy life. For example, I was walking and a lady’s dog bit me, thanks God, it just grabbed my pants, but I remained always quiet. The lady apologized and I said I was OK and kept walking. Without Agnihotra, the situation would have been different. That is when you realize you’ve changed. Before, people told me to calm down, now I tell the people to calm down. I am doing Agnihotra for almost 2 years.”
