According to Hindu Dharma, India’s ancient religious practice, certain ritual practices such as homas and abhishekas have the power to attract divine cosmic energy. These sacred ceremonies purify the earth’s atmosphere, uplift the community, and contribute to the health and prosperity of the person.

 A Homa is a holy fire ritual in which various forms of the Divine are invoked into the fire according to Vedic procedure. Special offerings are made into the fire while Sanskrit mantras are chanted. The combination of the powerful energy of the fire and the mantras creates purifying vibrations that are beneficial to all present and also to the entire world.

 Even the damaging effects of natural disaster can be reduced through the performance of homas. Every kind of negative karma can be purified by the sacred fire due to divine grace

Each homa  should be performed strictly according to the Hindu vedic scriptures. Homas are conducted by fully learned and experienced priest/scholars. The ingredients required for each homa is different, but the basic things will be ghee, coconut.

Each homa should be  performed after conducting sankalpa for the specific relief/benefit desired for each individual. During Sankalpa, one must tell their gothra, nakshatra, rashi & name to the vedic pundit/priest so that they can start chanting the mantra. The smoke, which comes out of the homa, is good for health as many ailments associated with breathing, gets cured.
