Let us explain a little about our Homa Organic farm and Centre.

Lee and Frits Ringma are your hosts at Om Shree Dham. We have been running this Homa Therapy Centre and organic farm for over 24 years. Om Shree Dham is different from most organic farms that are working towards sustainability. We incorporate Agnihotra and other Homas into our farming practice and daily life. It specifically helps in the rejuvenation of the environment, creating a vital and nutritious foundation for nature. It also creates a peaceful, transformative atmosphere for people. Agnihotra is a pivotal practice here on the farm and a pivotal part of the daily program. Guests attend Agnihotra twice daily and partake of it’s relaxing, healing and rejuvenating atmosphere. The atmosphere itself is healing!

The attendance of Agnihotra twice daily is a requirement for your stay at Om Shree Dham.

 

Because of the transformational momentum created by Homa Therapy one would need to be open to such things as meditation and healing processes. The structure of the day is there to help this process. You may wish to learn Agnihotra and Homa Organic farming practices while here – please contact us for more information.

More about Agnihotra

 

Homa Therapy Guests

There are multiple benefits to staying at Om Shree Dham- learning about Agnihotra and Homa Therapy, being in a transformational Homa atmosphere, enjoying the unique and palpable peace, harmony and natural beauty created by years of Homas and mantras, enjoying a healthy vegetarian, mostly organic diet, participating in organic farming and other practical projects, gaining skills thereby and the good vibes of service. Surrounded by hills and bush there are wonderful bush walks.

It is worth mentioning that the transformational atmosphere created by daily Homas is highly conducive to freeing oneself from unwanted habits. It has been the experience of many that cravings for example for cigarettes, coffee, sugar, alcohol, etc, surprisingly have a much lesser hold over a person in the Homa healing atmosphere. Om Shree Dham is happily and easily an alcohol, drugs and cigarette free zone. If you need to smoke tobacco you can do so outside of the boundaries of the farm.
