About Homa

A homa is a fire ritual. It is a puja that involves offering various materials into a specially designed fire pit. Homa is an ancient ceremony and celebration of the Divine performed to keep us in harmony with cosmic forces, thereby helping us to overcome the sorrows of life, advancing our spiritual growth, and promoting World Peace.

Homa confers both spiritual and material welfare. It is done to restore balance in the environment and bring peace within us and the world. It balances the malefic effects of planets.
