18:00 Agnihorta Purifying Ritual and Mantra Chanting with BR Indra Udayana

     

At precisely local sunset, two pinchfuls of uncooked rice grains, smeared with a few drops of cow’s ghee are offered into the Fire. The Fire is prepared in a semi- pyramid shaped copper pot. While offering the two portions to the Fire, two simple Vedic Mantras are chanted. The positive effects of Agnihorta are an outcome of the simultaneous functioning of many scientific principles, such as the effect of chanting specific sounds on the atmosphere and mind, energies emanating from the pyramid shape, nutritional effects of burning the medicinal ingredients and the effects of the biorhythms. Agnihorta balances the cycle of nature and nourishes the human life. It creates a pure, clean & medicinal atmosphere.
