What is Homa?
Homa, also known as Havan, is a Sanskrit word referring to sacred fire ritual in ancient Vedic tradition. The science of Homa is a Vedic ritual that invokes fire, one of the five sacred elements of nature – earth, water, fire, air and ether. In Hinduism, Homa is a religious ceremony, consisting of offerings that vary depending upon the intended outcome, to the consecrated element of fire invoking one or more divinities while chanting powerful mantras (sacred sound vibrations). For instance, Ganapati Homa is done to overcome obstacles in one’s life, Chandi Homa for Victory in all endeavors, and Vishwa Shanthi Homa for universal peace and harmony, as also harmony between the self and the universe.
Rudra is one of the many energies of Shiva. Lord Rudra is a ferocious aspect of Lord Shiva, who is the embodiment of destruction, rejuvenation and unlimited love. Rud means sorrow. Ra means destroyer. Rudra is the “One who destroys our sorrows” and eliminates all negative influences in our life, purifying our system enabling us to see reality more clearly.
Rudra homa connects us to the fire (agni) element while awakening the inner fire (jataragni) within each of us – this is responsible for proper digestion and dissemination of food energy in our system. Performing Rudra homa cleanses our deep rooted disorders and rejuvenates our energy as well as the surrounding environment by allowing an abundant flow of prana (life-force) into the atmosphere.

Sri Rudram – Answer to Anti Aging
Science of Sri Rudram is a powerful Vedic hymn on Lord Shiva. Found in the ancient Yajurveda, Sri Rudram is renowned for its healing vibrations. It is chanted to invoke Lord Shiva’s energy, intelligence and blessings. In Sri Rudram, the Cosmic form of Shiva is described.
Rudra is the Deity of anti-ageing. It is the form of Shiva’s rejuvenating energy which makes us younger day after day. Sri Rudram is also called the Namakam. In it there are 300 repetitions of the word Namaha which means ‘salutations’ in Sanskrit. It has another interpretation, which is ‘not me’. Again and again repeating the word ‘not me’ – namaha – directly hits at the root of the ego, which is the sole culprit responsible for all our problems. Our brain is designed to respond differently to different words. Whatever word we repeat in our inner space gets recorded in our brain and bio-memory and also decides the circuit of brain signals. Repeating the word namaha in your inner space breaks the unconscious part of our mind where the root cause of all the health problems resides. Simply chanting the Sri Rudram with awareness can directly destroy the root of all mental and physical health problems.
Rudram & Nadis
The human body has over 72,000 subtle energy channels known as nadis. The nadis are closely linked to the functioning of the nervous system. Negative energies can block the full flow of prana (life-force) in these nadis, resulting in many ‘incurable’ or so-called ‘karmic’ diseases, including nervous and mental disorders. When performed with devotion and awareness, the energy of Rudra Homa can directly penetrate our deepest energy layers, energize the nadis and flush out the negative samskaras (engraved memories) which influence our health and mental states. Most importantly, the high consciousness pervading the atmosphere in an energy field put us naturally into a meditative state.
Meditation directly activates the self-healing mechanism of the body and acts as both a curative and a preventive remedy for disease. Rudra Homa will make healing happen in you, adding joy and peace and good health to you and your family.
