Can one person help heal the planet? Absolutely!
The simple healing fire ceremony known as Agnihotra provides an authentic solution for our distressed planet. A fundamental fire ceremony of the ancient Vedic science known as Yagnya, it is conducted in a small copper pyramid. Infused with vibrational frequencies of short, specific Sanskrit chants, it creates an extended energy field of harmony. Within that space, negativity dissolves, allowing life forms to return to a natural state of wholeness. Scientific evidence indicates that with regular and sustained practice, toxins are neutralized, dis-ease is diffused, distress is dissolved… and a sense of well-being is established.

In 1997 I sat in the living room of a friend's home in Texas, attending a house blessing led by a revered Kriya Yoga saint from the Himalayas of India. As he lit fire in a small copper pyramid and began deep resonant chanting, overwhelming warmth enveloped me and unexpected tears rolled down my cheeks. Something significant was happening. I felt I was returning to a divine “knowing” I had yearned for my whole life. This was the first experience acquainting me with the loving power of Vedic fire ceremony. Already a dedicated meditator, I vowed to add this sacred fire ceremony to my life’s purpose. This book is the result of that commitment.
Agnihotra: Havan on Earth is the book I wanted and needed when learning agnihotra. Once I felt confident with my own practice and observed transformational benefits, I began teaching it to others. I assembled notes to hand out to students to support their practice. Within a few months, during meditation, I was guided to write it so that anyone sincerely desiring to heal the planet could learn this simple and profound scientific practice. Writing this book was an act of love for four years. The global response has been humbling and heart warming. I only wish I had published it sooner!
