“In a Homa farm, cows are very healthy. But the main thing is that the fat content in the milk is higher. We have desi cows; we started our Goshala (stable) with 7 cows only, but now we have 32 cows and bulls in all ages.
Regarding the water, the water wells of the people around us, which they have been using for the last 10 years, are dried up. Some rich people drilled deeper and still they have not gotten water. So this shows that in Homa atmosphere there is a better water retention. Many officers, who pass by our Homa farm, driving from Amalner to Parola, notice that it is raining in the area of Tapovan, but 2 to 3 km further away there is no more rain. They asked me why and I told them that this is because of the Homas we do here. This year the Jalgaon district, which has 119 villages, suffers from drought. But here in Tapovan, everything is still green and we have a good quantity of water.”
Here in Tapovan Homa farm, in March 2013, we completed 12 years of doing Om Tryambakam Homa for 24 hours daily. Every day in the morning there are several Agnihotras being done and in the evenings we have approx. 20 Agnihotra fires with the participation of the workers. Because of this we have lots of benefits.
Tapovan update Oct. 2013:
“After 6 years of drought and failed monsoons, we have had the best monsoon ever here in Tapovan. All our wells are full and also our rainwater harvesting ponds. This is not normal in October. Tapovan looks very lush and green. We harvest lots of delicious fresh fruits and vegetables from the gardens. One of our papaya trees collapsed in a recent storm under the weight of 70kg of fruit.”
