A homa, or fire offering, is a sacred ceremony in which the Gods are offered oblations through the medium of fire according to Vedic scriptual injuctions while special mantras are recited. A Homa is performed during specific auspicious occasions for the benefit of the entire world as well as the participants.


One must understand that the actions of the Homa are a nourishment for the Devatas, who all correspond to basic principals of nature. By nourishing those energies one gets the support of nature. All objects which are offered into Agni refer to specific deities. These deities who are governing different main aspects of Nature, bless us with overall health and well being.

You can consult the concerned priest for the items to be brought for the particular homa of your choice. Contact Manager for more details.

Please note
Identification of a specific solution requires in-depth knowledge of the subject and the systems. Seeking advice from knowledgeable and experienced vedic scholars is very crucial. Performing Puja/Homa/Japa with all devotion to God and not as a ritual is the key to utmost satisfaction.
