“The effect of one Agnihotra fire is equivalent to a healing balm so powerful, the entire nervous system is relieved and tranquilized. However, it is in the true performance of an extreme act of kindness toward Nature and toward one’s own nature – inner nature, that one shall find it’s most healing, transforming benefits”

Atmosphere is healing
First of all just being in Homa atmosphere is healing. The moment you step onto the land the healing begins. Agnihotra and other Homas have been performed on a daily basis in this beautiful valley since 1987. A visiting yogi and master of Kriya Yoga from India commented that the heightened atmosphere of this Homa Therapy Centre is as potent as that of an ancient ashram of centuries of spiritual practice.
Attending Daily Homa program
The Retreat consists of partaking in the daily Homas. Sunrise and sunset Agnihotra is a must. The other Homas can be attended at your leisure but we highly recommend attending the entire Homa program.
Daily Healing Program
- Sunrise Agnihotra – 20 min. meditation. Required to attend.
- 10.00 am – Vyahruti Homa – 15 min. meditation.
- 12 Midday – Vyahruti Homa followed by Gayatri mantra – 15min

This program is complimented by some hours of continuous Om Tryambakam Homa daily. Those who perform Agnihotra also partake in the performance of Om Tryambakam Homa contributing approximately an hour a day. All are welcome to sit in. It creates a soothing and deeply healing atmosphere. Agnihotra is the main energy generator while the other Homas fortify and strengthen the biosphere created by twice daily Agnihotra. Om Tryambakam Homa in particular helps to shift deep seated issues in the psyche and is a wonderful way of maintaining mental and emotional well being. On full and new moons, equinoxes and solstices, we perform as many hours of Om Tryambakam Homa as possible. It is a powerful time to visit.
Regular meditation in heightened atmosphere
Attending the Homas places you directly in a potent purifying energy field. It is highly conducive to meditative states which often occur with surprising ease and depth. Being exposed to a heightened energy field on a regular basis can bring clarity, insights, solutions to problems, revelations about one’s direction in life, etc.
Service work, especially in the garden, helps one to integrate and ground the heightened energies and resultant processes. Some possible experiences may include an energetic and physical detox. You may feel very tired for example for a couple of days or there may be inexplicable aches and pains, etc. Or you may simply experience more vitality and peace. Usually it is a combination of experiences as you go through your healing and transformational journey. It is different for everyone.
Om Shree Dham is an organic farm and retreat Centre nestled in a valley surrounded by native bush and backing onto a vast national park. The hills surrounding us are full of caves with an ancient, sacred feeling. Exploring the surrounds through bush walks is a perfect way to enjoy solitude, commune with nature and integrate your processes.
Integrating Homa Therapy in your life
If you wish, you can learn how to do Agnihotra and perform it while here. Simply observe and when you feel ready approach Lee or Frits for instruction. On Sundays we can give talks on Homa Therapy on request.
