In order to empower this, Homam or Havan, an energetic ritual had been performed and taught by the Sages, who were the masters in the Vedas, since 5000 years.
Imbalance in any one of the five, leads to chaos. These 5 elements of the nature exist in our body too.
So fire or agni, one of the essential elements, which represents the absorption and digestion, is taken as deity for this practice.
Procedure of the Homam or Havan:
Experiences of Homam or Havan :
Sookshma sareera or Subtle body is one of the bodies of us (Casual Body or Karana Sareera, Subtle Body or Sookshma Sareera, Visual Body or Sthoola Sareera ).
Sookshma sareera or Subtle body extends beyond the Visual Body or Sthoola Sareera by penetrating internally. The root cause of any disease originates from the Sookshma sareera or Subtle body. So healing a disease is complete by treating the Subtle body.
It tunes the consciousness of the performers to the Supreme consciousness, as our levels of consciousness get nourished and enlightened in the presence of fire.
After reaching to the certain level of the consciousness, doing meditation at the end of the homam raises the consciousness even more.
It has been said that performing 30 minutes homam and meditating for 10 minutes as a consequence to it at the fire helps to gain the cosmic energy and burn the blockages even more than the cosmic energy gained by doing 2 hours of meditation.
But all these types cause the inner transformation, even though they work in a different manner. Appropriate type is selected according to one's purpose.
