Our Tea Garden
“We used to have several types of infection on the tea leaves, ranging from fungal to bacterial to various types of pests. In addition, when the tea bushes were pruned to the roots, the new sprouting leaves were infected by pests which used to roll the leaves and we used to lose a lot of good leaves. Since we started doing Homa Therapy and applying Biosol made with Agnihotra ash, our tea leaves are without infection. We have not had any crop loss due to pests or disease. We pruned our bushes recently and there has been no infection at all. The new leaves are green and lush. All tea leaves have a healthy sheen (glow). The leaves remain fresh even hours after picking. And the quality of leaves has improved greatly!
Our silver oak trees which give shade to tea plants, have almost doubled in girth (circumference) in the past two years and seem to attract a lot of queries from timber merchants, much to our amusement. To everyone’s surprise, our silver oak trees have also started flowering! No one here seems to have seen such flowers before! All these are very encouraging changes.
Our Green Tea Liquor
We have also started producing manually green tea liquor (extract of green tea, does not contain alcohol), which we receive from our garden and it is found to be top class by all who have tasted this liquor. We get golden green liquor without any bitter taste and it is taken preferably without any sugar, honey or similar sweeteners. It is a labor intensive method of producing tea. We enrich it additionally with herbs we grow on our Homa farm. Our health has improved a great deal and we are always at peace and content.
We also have a flower garden where we grow several kinds of plants. Due to use of Homa Therapy and the Agnihotra ash, the colors of the flowers are deeper and brighter and they attract many kinds of birds and butterflies. The number of birds in our garden and their variety and seems to grow every day.
We also discovered by chance that wilting plants revive when fed with Agnihotra ash water. Nowadays, whenever we make a new cutting for planting, we soak the cutting in Agnihotra ash water for several hours and then plant them. The new leaves sprout faster and establish roots more easily.
Our ornamental flower trees started showing flowers already in their first year and that has surprised a lot of people, including our workers.
There was one more tree whose name we don’t know and which grew from a small cutting to about 3.5 meters tall in one year and produced a crown full of flowers (see photo right). Another cutting of this was planted by us in a pot and then was passed on to my wife’s sister who lives about 8 Kms from our house. It grew to about 0.5 meter at the end of one year and there were no flowers…
We also noticed that the water retention of the soil in the entire garden has increased and even when there are heavy rains, we have no water runoff and no soil erosion.
Plants react to Homa Therapy
More than anything, the most noticeable feature of our tea garden is the overwhelming feeling of happiness, as if the plants are trying to reach out to us telling us how happy they are.”
