GermanySurrounded by the hum of the peaceful bees
I worked in the garden under the heat of august sun
Burying my hands in fertile soil
With templefire ash between my fingers
Feeling the pure soul of this ground.
Mountains, magical and majestic on the horizon
Brought me down to my knees in the morning sun
Being humble before this nature beauty.
Charmed by the ritual of the agnihotra fires
Delighted by the crystal bowls sound
I purified myself, mind and soul.
Here, in the healing homa atmosphere
I found my love to Poland again,
The country I was born 50 years ago and
Had forgotten for a long time.
The community people, open in their heart and spirit
Made my spiritual journey unique and unforgettable.
I can still hear the hum of the bees in my dreams.
“The first thing I noticed when I arrived at Bhrugu Aranya was the peaceful yet vibrant atmosphere and magical feeling of the land. It is in the air, in the ancient apple orchard, the colorful gardens and sacred fire temple. A wonderful community of people look after this place and I was blessed to develop many deep and lasting friendships during my time as a volunteer- with the people living here as well as the animals; who are all so sweet and affectionate.
I learned valuable lessons about myself, community, Homa Therapy, gardening and spiritual ecology during my stay. I ate delicious meals, played music with friends, went for walks through the woods and- most importantly, got to experience what it is like to contribute to a project and place that serves our planet, humanity and all the beings of nature. What a great group of humble, dedicated and funny people!
It is a heart-centered place of spirituality, ecology and community centered around the deep healing power of the fires.
I thank everyone at Bhrugu Aranya for making my time there so special.”Dan Konzman:
“When I had a free summer between years of studying at university, I wanted to seek out an opportunity to get more in touch with nature and sustainable farming. I found Bhrugu Aranya and it sounded like a great place to be a part of.
I learned about Agnihotra and organic gardening. Through both meditation and hard work, I ended up learning far more than I had expected about spirituality and about myself.
Homa therapy opened my eyes to a world of possibilities and gave me new perspective on the world. Due to the great people and transformative spiritual practices, the summer I spent at the farm is full of memories I will always hold dear.”
“I intended to stay at Bhrugu Aranya for 2 weeks and ended up staying for 3 as I found myself totally enveloped by the love, care and spirit of the community.
For me, the healing atmosphere created by the community’s dedication to Homa Therapy practice was very tangible and facilitated some wonderful personal transformations during my time there”
