“Twenty years ago, a friend named Maria came from India and was standing in the waiting line for lunch at the ‘Universidad de los Andes’. She was joyfully talking about her experiences with the Homa fires, the benefits of the resonance of the Mantras, the sunlight in the morning and the afternoon. In short, she told us about Homa Therapy. In addition, when Maria grabbed a mangy street dog, who was eating the student’s leftovers, we learned also about the benefits of the Agnihotra ash. She rubbed the dog with clarified butter and Agnihotra ash and it got healed. While Maria explained the benefits of the Fires, we planted little trees in the desert like gardens of the faculty where we studied. Today this area is converted into a beautiful forest, where the students sit with their books, their music instruments, they play football and enjoy the shadow of these large trees. After one month, I was with a lady friend doing Homa fires in her back garden. I was gradually learning more about Agnihotra, which is done at sunrise and sunset. Later, I continued practicing the Homa Fires on my own for a while longer, but then I dedicated myself to other activities. Now I’m thinking about producing food because there are many farms that have been abandoned. Don Ismael and his son Alberto (photo left) live in the plains of Barinas (5 hours from Merida). Don Ismael’s mother is the owner of the farm. She has been very careful not to allow poisons on her farm. Don Ismael, following the wishes of his mother, sought and asked around until he got my phone number. He called me to learn this organic technique of removing Black Sigatoka in bananas. Gradually I was training him with Homa Therapy. He got the butter, dried cow dung, brown rice, the matches and the coordinates of the farm. After some time, during the Carnival 2016, I took a pyramid to this plantain farm. Already at Easter time, he was reporting with great joy that his plantains did not die this summer from the extreme heat and not from the Black Sigatoka. They were healthier than ever, giving many offsprings and fruits free of fungi stains (Black Sigatoka). We can go and see this farm as a testimony today.”
