Agni means healing and hotra means fire.
Agnihotra is an excellent companion to Kambô as it prepares and cleanses the mind, body and environment for receiving.
Agnihotra comes from the Vedas and is a simple offering performed at precise timings for sunrise and sunset.
A fire is made in a copper pyramid using cow dung, and an offering of rice and ghee is given with a short Sanskrit mantra. This copper pyramid is a fixed size and shape, tuned to the biorhythm of sunrise and sunset. It comes from the ancient most Vedic Sciences of Bioenergy. Medicine, Agriculture and Climate Engineering. This knowledge has been revived and practiced all over the world. “At sunrise, the fires, electricity, ethers and more subtle energies emanating from the sun extends all the way to the Earth and produce a flood effect at those coordinates where the sun is said to rise. The flood enlivens and purifies everything in its path, destroying what is impure in its wake. This torrent of life-sustaining energies causes all life to rejoice. At sunrise that music can be heard. The morning Agnihotra Mantra is the essence of that music. It is the quintessential sound of that flood. At sunset the flood recedes.” A magnetic-type field is created, which neutralizes negative energies and reinforces positive energies These energies are generated or thrust into the atmosphere by fire. This, in addition to the qualities of the materials burned, produces the full effect of this healing HOMA (healing fire). Much healing energy emanates from the Agnihotra pyramid. Performing Agnihotra provides a tranquilizing effect on your mind and it unburdens it from the various strain and stress of daily duties. It instills the presence and feelings of love in the mind and your life.

Breathing the smoke of the fire circulates the medicine directly into the blood steam and lungs. Making this treatment an excellent lung tonic for grief. It enhances the circulatory system by purifying the blood, and nervous system. It has a profound effect on the renewal of brain cells and revitalizes the skin.
