I heard about Agnihotra and its effects in a talk by Dr Pramod Basarkar from Dharwad Agricultural University, Karnataka. After hearing about it, I started to practice Agnihotra. But I didn’t think more about the benefits that were told in the talk.
Near to my house, there is a small garden which has a lemon tree and which is about ten years old. It gives good fruit. This year again there were a lot of flowers but during flowering the tree was attacked by an insect pest and it lost all its flowers. People gave various advice for chemical treatments. Then I remembered Dr. Basarkar telling about the Agnihotra ash watersolution. I decided to mix some Agnihotra ash in water and after letting this sit for 3 days, the Agnihotra ash water solution was ready for use. I sprayed the lemon tree only once with this solution. After 8 days, I checked the tree and found the insects had all disappeared and the tree had started to flower again. Thanks to Dr. Basarkar for his good advice about Agnihotra!
