Since thousands of years, sages have been performing havan or homas to get rid of all negativity and calm your minds. During such homas, a holy fire is ignited where the divine is invoked and all sacred Vedic scriptures are followed by priests. Many offerings are given by the natives to priests and it is believed that through these offerings they are giving away the negativity of their lives and gaining positive energies in return. There are many other essential benefits of vidhis and the samagri that are used in the havan.
The main element of the homa is the holy fire on which all the samagris are offered for the god and goddesses. Most of the homam needs mango wood for lighting the fire but it can vary with different deities. The offerings are made while chanting the mantras so the combination of the strong energy of the sacred fire and the Sanskrit mantras makes the environment more auspicious and purifying. It doesn’t only help you to connect with the divine, but also cleanses your soul and environment of the home where the havan is performed. Each and every homam has different benefits that can bring a huge change in your life.
