“I have been doing Homa Therapy for 8-10 years. We have not stopped. We do it with our kids at least 5 times a week. Our home has a Homa atmosphere.
We have had many countless health experiences. Among these, there is one related to our neighbor, who was pregnant. She had a very problematic and difficult pregnancy. She was 33 years old. She was medically treated for 10 years to have a child. She had 3 miscarriages. Though I invited her for Agnihotra in the morning and evening every day. She came and began taking Agnihotra ash.Little by little, she saw that her pregnancy got better. She could move without many aches and pains. And little by little, without medical treatment, she began to stabilize and eventually ended her pregnancy nicely. She completed the normal nine months and gave birth to a boy named ‘Aaron Homa’. He is a child of fire and is now 2 years old. And everybody calls him “Homa”.
But I also want to share what happened on Sunday, June 23rd, the day of Saint John. I showered with special water and herbs and then I did sunrise Agnihotra. We do the Homa fires in the center of our house. When the flame extinguished, I remained sitting there peacefully. Then I began to perceive a very pleasant smell. This Perfume was very strong and wonderful. It was a very indescribable fragrance, which began to emerge from the pyramid. The burned cow dung pieces moved by themselves in a way that it looked like a flower opening up. I was amazed about this gift I was receiving. I stood still and the fragrance came like a spring, a waterfall, an ocean. The smell was truly impressive. Then my wife came down the stairs and started talking about the smell. She also began to breathe it deeply. Then our boys woke up. All smelt the fragrance. The whole house was flooded with this perfume smell. Then, the neighbors also came and asked “what flowers have you brought?” I opened the doors and windows to let out the fragrance. With such irresistible beauty, I began to cry. It was something I had never experienced before and it is difficult to narrate without losing objectivity. I reached into the pyramid, but there was no more fire. The perfume emanated for over an hour. The word perfume seems very short and limited to describe the royal scent of this fragrance.
What I want to say is that I did not go out to seek this experience. It came and I really feel it was a gift. It moved me, my whole being, my physical body, my mind – only through smell. I just wanted to smell, to catch that fragrance. It came in through the sight, the eyes, the ears, the mouth, the skin, through the organs. It was so pervasive, so strong. I felt bathed in mercy. In that moment I understood what the scriptures call “the perfume of sanctity”. It was alive and new with every breath. I wished I could bottle some of that fragrance. We were just breathing. We were like 20 people there, everyone silent, smelling, breathing until it was gone. We all were left very happy.
My family, my home, we have been able to survive only thanks to the Homa fires. We had many problems, but we have been able to solve them. My whole family has a deep respect for the Homas. Sometimes we have up to 5 pyramids lit. Those who have come and learned it, they have taken their pyramids to keep practicing it wherever they are. It’s like a legacy.
To us, here on earth, we are given infinite pleasures, but we do not realize it for our focus is on money. We think that money is happiness. We need money to live, but there are things infinitely beautiful, infinitely unique, and they do not need money. We must cultivate an interior presence that allows us to see an unforgettable moment or in this case, smell something infinitely beautiful. It was almost impossible to bear the burden of beauty. We are so used to the material world, to what lasts so little and is disposable. When we see something so beautiful, we are not prepared. We say that this is not possible, everything should be disposable – friends, homes, life itself. But the real things do not have an expiration date, they are not disposable, they are there for you and me. No need to be a superman, just work on oneself. This experience will be with me for the rest of my life.”
