According to our Vedic Scriptures, Havan should be the most important rite of our daily activities. As brushing your teeth and taking a bath is the first thing we do in the morning, Havan should also be done regularly. It is basically the power of Deva Yajna. In this way, we pay off our debt for the blessings received from the devas. Let this yajna be the fulfiller of all your desires.

After the Shrouta Homa, Smaarta Home be performed too. Some persons perform Smarta Homa earlier. In the context of Aadhaana and Punadaadhaana, Homaarambhas are always performed in the Saayankaalas only. The homaas in the morning and the evening are to be done only by the same Homa Dravyaas. However, the Kartha might not be the same.
Vishwaani na, place the Samidha in Agni and offer hundred rice grains to Agni saying Suryaaya swaaha as the Prathamaahuti. After the Upasthana, the Karta is to be seated and would recite Maanastoka etc. Some Vidwaans however believe in the reciting of Tantumtanvan in the Suryopasthaana in the morning. Then recite: Aditenvamaggasthaah Anumtenvamaggastaah Saraswaten -maggahthaah Deva Savitah praasaavih and perform prokshana or sprinkling water in all the directions circularly.
Udyutyam and Chitram Devaanaam etc. That is all the difference and the rest would be as in the case of Hiranya keshi vidhana. In the morning the Homa is performed with the Mantra: Suryaaya swaahaa, Prajapataye swaha. The Upasthaana in the evening is done with Samastwaaya and in the morning with Vibhraat. If Homa and Aahutis are performed together, then the Mantra Yatra vetta vanaspatey be recited. When there is Ashoucha or any such unavoidable situations, then also similar praayaschittaas need to be observed.
While this is the manner in which Hiranyakeshis observe, Aapastamba Sutris obereve Prayaschittha for three days. As Agni naashana occurs for more than twelve days, the Kartha himself has to perform the Homa but not by proxies. After executing a homa, if Agni is produced by Arani method or with a feeling of the same by reciting the Mantra Ayam tey yoni- whose Rishi is Vishwamitra, Agni is Devata, Anushtup Chhanda- then that process is called Agni Samaaropa.
The Samaaropa and Pratyavaroha are to be executed by the Karta himself and not proxies except by his wife who might perform the Pratyavaroha part.
Punaraadheya Prayaschitta: As the samidhaas of Agni are spent away, the procedure of its revival is known as Punaraadheyana with prayaschitta. In the following Parva, Atineshti and Pathikrut could be performed then. In the third Praatipada too if the Anvadhana and Ishti were not done, then Ardha kruccha Prayaschitta is possible but in the fourth attempt there would not be further prayaschittha is not possible and there would be Agni Naasha. Thus the only alternative would be Punarodhaana but this type of Punarodhaana is different from Punaradheya in the context of Vivahas demanding far sterner measures.
Purnahuti is done in such a way that when water is poured on the ferocious Agni it sounds like a hissing flame! Let there be Sarva Prayaschittha as though the main Ahutis merge into the swishtakrut Ahutis.
Also, in connection with actions like Sharanaa Karma, Sarpa bali, Ashwiyuji, Aagrayana and Pratyavarohana are not perfected, then Praajaapatya kruccha must be done. If Ashtakaa is not done then the person concerened should observe Upavasa. If Purnendu Shraaddha is not done then too Upavasa be observed or in place of that provide a good Bhojana. If Anvaashtaka is not achieved then there should be a Japa by hundred times of the Rucha viz.
Yebhirdubhi Sumanaa Yebhirundubhih etc. Purnahuti be done when- ever Charu homa is done. On getting bad dreams, the Rucha of yo mey Rajanyujyo vaa be recited after Sun set. Either the husband or wife of a family should be present at the nearness of Agni at the time of Sun rise and Sun set. If frequent lapses of Agni occur, then Agni gets the risk of Naasha or destruction.
If a Karta has more than one wife and if neither of the wives looks after the Agni,then also Agni naasha is expected.
When the husband is away and wife neglects the Agni, then the latter gets extinguished. Rigvedis opine that after Vivaha homa or Griha pravesha homa, the Nityaagni Kartaas ought to perform punaraadhana of Grihaagni. Further, Aahitaagnis do not eat food cooked by others except jaggery and milk. However, they eat as an exception of what is cooked with milk and ghee only without water.
There can be no lofty Dharma higher than that of knowledge and devotion either in the days of yore or in the contemporary Society! It is difficult to assess whether charity of gold measuring Meru Mountain and as much of all Oceans put together might or not be equal to the fruits of executing the Morning and Evening Homa Vidhi with sincerity and faith! Among all the Purushardhaas viz. That is why the validity of Anna daana in the remote past and of distant future! Then He created Earth and Life to Praanis.
The Nakshatraas constitute your Celestial Formation. And Ashvini Devatas are the full visage of yours as flower blooms! The last of the Ruchas is tuned with the Hridaya and the last of the of the Ruchas are recited with the rest of the body parts. The Puja materials include Kalasha, Shankha, Ghanta etc. All the Sixteen Services need to be done with the accompanying recitals of the concerned Ruchas of Purusha Sukta, while performing Aachamana at the end of each Service and Anna-Aahutis and Pushpas.
Shialagrama -shila jala should be taken in but not sprinkled on head. If a person sits before a Sala -grama and listens to Vishnu Kathaa, that person is certain to escape the fear of Yama!
Krishi or farming and cottage industries or Seva vritti have social stigmaas. However for the sake of the Upkeep of family, Kusula dhaanya or Saving for the next twelve days or Kummi Dhanya or Saving for six days ahead would be essential. As against these feelings aginst Vaanijya, Krisha and Seva Vritti in view of the dilution of Brahmanatwa, the contempoary Society has witnessed a Sea Change and lost relevance now.
After Aghamarshana ie. In the night the Arghyapradaana be done with Aakrishnena Mantra. Kartiyanaas also recite Aapah punantu as stated earlier; one Arghya to Gayatri; Upasthaana is with Udvaayana and other Ruchas; and if possible with Vibhraat etc Anuvaka after Japaanta as in the case of the Pratah kala Sandhya.
To women including mother, only one palmful of offering be given. Brahma Yagna is preferably performed near a water body. Tarpana is required to be done on Darbhas spread on Bhumi but not in water. Or it can be done in a vessel and latter in a watery ditch but not on plain Earth.
The vessel should not be an earthen pot. This Prakarana of Vaishvadeva commences from the mornings but not as in the Agni Karyaas in the evenings. Rigvedis consider three Yagnas viz. Therefore there would be one Vaishvadeva in a family unit of undivided brothers.
In case the Kartha leaves station then he should commission a Ritvik to perform the needful. Alternatively he could observe the Karya wherever he goes out of his house.
Rigvedis and Taittiriyaas consider it necessary to perform Vaishvadeva both in the day time and the night; they observe it by preparing the Lokaagni Paaka or at Vivahas etc. This query is replied that it is no doubt observance of Pancha Ratraas etc. This is the procedure of Deva Yagna. Deva Yagna included there would then be Five Yagnas viz. Deva-Pitru-Bhuta-Manushya and Vaishvadeva.
Both Yajurvedis and Saama vedis perform Vaishvadeva before the others, Atharva Vedis perform during the course of the Pitru Shraddha while Bruhvachas or Rigvedis perform at the Shraddha sesha. Ahitaagnis perform Vaishvadeva at the beginning itself on the Shraddha Dina. This is Vaishvadeva Vidhana all about. Thereafter, the Karta would assume Pracheenaaveeti and offer Pirtru Tirtha through the thumb and fingers stating Pitrubhyassvadhaanama idam Pitrubhyo na mama ; this is theKaakatiya way of Pitru Yagna.
After cleaning up the vessel with water and in Savya position the Karta would offer this water stating Yakshmaitatthey nirneyjanam and drop the water; this is the Manushya Yagna vidhaana. In the event of the Kartha not possessing Grihagni, then he could carry one Agni Kaashta from Lokagni, install it saying Prushthodivi and other Saavitra Mantras viz. Tatsavituh taag savituh; Vishvaani devaa.
Sarva Saadhaarana Bhojana Vidhi: The best way of taking Bhojana is to use a golden or silveren plate failing which a plate of stitched mango leaves. Without doing Achamana, one should not go for ablutions. One should not have his bhojana without serving the old members of the family and also to young children. Excepting at the time of Vivaha, the Karta and his wife are not to take food together. Food consumption should not be done seated with extended legs.
Ghrita Paayasa shoud be consumed in full without leaving even small quantity. Milk, Curd and Honey must be consumed daily. Such items are to be consumed only at lunch or dinner but not in between. Like wise, food material touched by crows or othe birds, cat, dogs or other animals should be discarded.
Food cooked with hairs, ants, flies etc. Normally food cooked on the previous day should not be recycled but the carry forward fried food, curd or its layers are consumable on the next day. Milk of camels, sheep or other forest animals is forbidden for consumption. Page load depends on your network speed. Thank you for your patience. Toggle navigation Kamakoti. Essence Of Dharma Sindhu.

Fire Rituals by the Queen of Siddhas
Homa is Sanskrit for a ritual, wherein an oblation or any religious offering is made into fire. It is rooted in the Vedic religion ,  and was adopted in ancient times by Buddhism and Jainism. A homa ritual is known by alternative names, such as yajna in Hinduism which sometimes means larger public fire rituals, or jajnavidhana or goma in Buddhism. Homa traditions are found all across Asia, from Samarkand to Japan , over a year history. Therefore the first food which a man may take, is in the place of Homa. And he who offers that first oblation, should offer it to Prana , saying svaha!
