Agnihotra is derived from the Vedas, an ancient body of knowledge recorded in Sanskrit. Sanskrit is a highly evolved and complex language and the mother of all Indo-European languages. The information in the Vedas is said to be revealed knowledge, which was passed down orally for thousands of years before it was recorded into the written version of Sanskrit in a later era, around 1500 B.C.
Thousands of years ago the intricate physics of our universe was described in the Vedas, even down to an exact description of the Atom. Methods for attaining higher states of consciousness, living in harmony with the earth and techniques for purifying the atmosphere were given.
It is from this body of knowledge that the ancient science of fire purification originates. In those ancient times special fire ceremonies were performed by many ancient cultures across the planet, including the Hopi Native Americans, Mayans, Shamans of Siberia. Agnihotra is the resucitated fire science which can be performed by anyone from any walk of life.
he fire is prepared in a small copper pyramid of specific size and shape. Brown rice, dried cowdung cakes and ghee (clarified unsalted butter) are the substances burned. Exactly at the time of sunrise and sunset the mantras are spoken and a small offering of rice and ghee is given to the fire.
During Sunrise/ Sunset the many electricities, ethers and more subtle energies emanating from the sun extend to the earth and produce a flood effect at the coordinates where the sun is said to rise.
One of the key elements of Agnihotra is the uttering of Sanskrit mantras when the fire is performed. Sanskrit is a language of pure vibration which has never been the mother tongue of any culture. When the Sunrise/ Sunset mantras are sung, there is a resonance created within the pyramid which is thrust out by the fire into the atmosphere.
