Let’s continue our series of self study – Swadhyaya.
For many people life is like a battle field. They experience fear for the enemy can appear anywhere. They experience resentment for the past painful experiences and so on. This is the situation for most people in the mental arena. There are certain situations which are pleasant and others which are unpleasant. There are some avoidable and some unavoidable situations. They are simply part of life. Is there a day without night?
In this battlefield the enemy is throwing arrows which can be toxic to the mind-body. When these toxic arrows hit the mind, it becomes unstable. Some arrows can be deviated and some cannot. You can prepare for this battle by:
a) training and strengthening your physical body and mind
b) protecting (covering) your vital organs
c) gaining courage to fight d) others
Chances are you will get wounded.
Who is the enemy? Who are the friends? We might be deceived to perceive the enemy/ friends as foreigners. There might be some enemies / friends around, but the greatest one is closest to us – our EGO. It can generate other enemies like selfishness, envy, greed, etc.


The Ego changes like a chameleon trying to deceive us. It wears different masks to fool us. It can pass through our physical, emotional and mental filters.
How to recognize and neutralize these enemies?
Is there a military strategy to win this battle?
Which are the tools and weapons to use?
Is there a practical, simple and effective tool to make the mind steady?
The warriors who have won this battle, the heroes from the past tell us:
The answer is Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes. The practice of the Fivefold Path, i.e. Agnihotra, Daan, Tapa, Karma and Swadhaya can help us to destroy the enemy and bring Peace into our land (mind-body). We can start with Agnihotra. This is the easiest way to start winning the battle. Yes, yes, yes. Agnihotra is an instrument to establish inner and outer Peace. Anyone can become an instrument of peace by practicing and sharing the loving energies of the sun with the Agnihotra fire. Anyone can be an Agnihotra Light Warrior. Let’s do Agnihotra to fill the atmosphere with unconditional love.
Let’s become love.
“Let Thy will be done and not mine.” Let’s be love.

Homa Healing Stories

Carmen Proanio, Guayaquil, Ecuador, South America

"Homa Therapy for me has been very good, magnificent, healing. It has cured us in several occasions. In one occasion, I fractured my forearm and injured a tendon in the right hand. The Doctor put  a cast and I was in pain more than 6 months even though I was  taking lots of medicines. The doctor of the Naval Hospital was planning to operate me. My daughter Adriana Lucio, who attended the Agnihotra sessions in the Homa Center with Ms. Sonia, told me: "Mommy, why don't you go to the Homa Therapy? You only take and take medicines." So she brought me  to the Homa Center. After putting my arm over the Agnihotra fire for 2 weeks, the pain disappeared. I no longer had any problem and my arm was healed. Thanks God I could stop taking the medicines.

Ms. Carmen Proanio

On another occasion, my left foot was very painful. The doctor in the hospital told me that an operation was necessary in order to remove this over calcification (spur) or I could use insoles. I bought myself insoles but they bothered me a lot. Again, it was my daughter who reminded me saying: "Mommy the fire, the Homa fire." So we started again practicing Agnihotra and I took the Agnihotra ash 3 times a day, morning, noon and night. Then the spur  disappeared. What a relief! I thank God for that.
My son, Carlos Lucio Proanio, had Psoriasis on the forearm. Every night, while he was sleeping, his wife put  Agnihotra ash on his forearm, because he didn't believe that the ash could help him. Soon he realized that he was cured of his Psoriasis problem. His wife told him that she had been applying the Agnihotra ash. He was astonished and said to me: "Mommy, tell me what is in the ash? I have been cured, look." And my son could not believe it. Now every time he has some pain, he requests the ash.
Now we are practicing Agnihotra at home and we take the Agnihotra ash and also save some. We do have a lot of faith in Homa Therapy. "


Ms. Cecilia Cepeda Evangelista
Guayaquil, Ecuador

"About one and half months ago, I came to learn about Homa Therapy in the Homa Center here in Guayaquil. Since I am participating in the Agnihotra sessions my health has improved a lot. I now feel more tranquility and harmony. I am also taking Agnihotra ash, which is given for free in the Homa Center.
My husband's health has also improved; he has more energy.
Truly, it astonishes me that in such a short time we have received so many benefits with this Therapy. Some medicines are so expensive that one cannot get enough money to buy them.

The best is that there is so much harmony in our family. Now there is a stronger sense of brotherhood among my children. We all do take the Agnihotra ash. I am very happy and so is my family.
My granddaughter is 5 years old and she was diagnosed with asthma. In the Homa Center, I was told that I could  give her half a spoonful of Agnihotra ash with juice. I did that and what a surprise!. She has no longer those attacks at night; she does not cough any more till she vomits. That cough truly scared me. Now thanks God she is very well. I continue giving her the Agnihotra ash in the juices she drinks in the morning, noon and evening. The ash doesn't have any flavor and she takes it without any problem.
I have seen that Homa Therapy truly works and  I thank God and I am very happy for that."

Homa Farming Technology in the Hacienda "Fuente de Alegría"
("Source of Joy"), Vinces, Ecuador, South America

More and better Production with Homa Farming Technology. This photo shows the banana bunches coming from the plantation into the packing area, where they are received with a smile.

Eng. Hernan Posas has a 100 ha banana plantation which is in Transition from conventional to organic agriculture. With the implementation of Homa Agricultural Technology, it was possible to avoid using the  insecticide stripes, which are usually attached  to the plastic bags covering the bananas in order to protect them from insect attacks. He also reduced the Black Sigatoka  fumigations in 50%.

Eng. Hernan Posas explains:
“This graph (left) compares the years 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. In 2008, applying Homa Super-Technology, we observe an increase in the ratio  in the banana production. The ratio is the result of converting banana bunches (racimos) into boxes.
In the previous 3 years (2005, 2006, 2007), one banana bunch filled an average of 1,2 boxes. This year (2008)  the average of boxes filled  with one bunch is 1,65. In spite of the strong rainfall this year, the ratio is higher than in the previous years. We have an increase in production and in productivity. In 2007, we had 2,968 boxes per ha. Our projection  is over 3,400 boxes per ha for this year 2008"

"Our farm suffered the consequences of the rains in previous years. This year (2008) the rains were comparable to the "El Niño" in 1998 when 60 hectares of our farmland were completely destroyed. But this year, practicing Homa Technology, the rains have hardly affected 2 hectares . Other farms have suffered a lot this year due to the excessive rains. Note:In our Province 'Los Rios',  8,000 ha of banana plantations have been destroyed this year 2008.”

The farm  administrator, Mr. Cristobal Macias observed with Homa Technology, the following: "There is a bigger production in quantity and a better production in quality this year with Homa Technology, compared to previous years without Homa. Undoubtedly we are very happy with the results of Homa farming Technology.
It also has helped with the attitude of the workers, who are now more dynamic and cooperative. There are also less complaints.

Dirty Secrets of the Food Processing Industry

By Sally Fallon
(Part I)

In the past, processing was carried out by farmers and artisans such as bread makers, cheese makers, distillers, millers and so forth. This type of processing resulted in delicious foods and kept the profits on the farm and in the farming communities where it belonged--food processing should be a local cottage industry.
Most importantly, traditional processing enhances or increases the nutrient value of our foods. Traditional bread making neutralizes anti-nutrients in grains to make the minerals more available; lacto-fermentation of cabbage to make sauerkraut increases the levels of vitamin C and many B vitamins many fold; and the making of yoghurt, kefir and similar products from fresh milk makes the nutrients in the milk more available and more digestible.
Industrial Processing
Unfortunately, in modern times we have abandoned local artisanal processing in favor of factory and industrial processing, which actually destroys the nutrients in food rather than increasing them, and makes our food more difficult to digest rather than more digestible. Furthermore, industrial processing depends upon products that have a negative impact on our health, such as sugar, white flour, processed and hydrogenated oils, additives, synthetic vitamins and an extrusion processing of grains. These are the tools of the food processing industry.
Packaged Cereals
Dry breakfast cereals are produced by a process called extrusion. Cereal makers first create a slurry of the grains and then put them in a machine called an extruder. The grains are forced out of a little hole at high temperature and pressure. Depending on the shape of the hole, the grains are made into little o's, flakes, animal shapes, or shreds (as in Shredded Wheat or Triscuits), or they are puffed (as in puffed rice). A blade slices off each little flake or shape, which is then carried past a nozzle and sprayed with a coating of oil and sugar to seal off the cereal from the ravages of milk and to give it crunch.
In his book Fighting the Food Giants, Paul Stitt tells us that the extrusion process used for these cereals destroys most of the nutrients in the grains. It destroys the fatty acids; it even destroys the chemical vitamins that are added at the end. The amino acids are rendered very toxic by this process. The amino acid lysine, a crucial nutrient, is especially denatured by extrusion. This is how all the boxed cereals are made, even the ones sold in the health food stores. They are all made in the same way and mostly in the same factories. All dry cereals that come in boxes are extruded cereals.
The only advances made in the extrusion process are those that will cut cost regardless of how these will alter the nutrient content of the product. Cereals are a multi-billion dollar business, one that has created huge fortunes.
With so many people eating breakfast cereals, you might expect to find some studies on the effect of extruded cereals on animals or humans. Yet, there are no published studies at all in the scientific literature.
A unpublished experiment was carried out in the 1960s. Researchers at Ann Arbor University were given 18 laboratory rats. They were divided into three groups: one group received corn flakes and water; a second group was given the cardboard box that the corn flakes came in and water; the control group received rat chow and water. The rats in the control group remained in good health throughout the experiment. The rats eating the box became lethargic and eventually died of malnutrition. But the rats receiving the corn flakes and water died before the rats that were eating the box! (The last corn flake rat died the day the first box rat died.) But before death, the corn flake rats developed schizophrenic behavior, threw fits, bit each other and finally went into convulsions. The startling conclusion of this study is that there was more nourishment in the box than there was in the corn flakes.
This experiment was actually designed as a joke, but the results were far from funny. The results were never published and similar studies have not been conducted.

             One can find endless sources for creating misery in one's life. People can become dependent because they have no money or because they have a lot of money but no one to share the money with. They can be unhappy traveling or unhappy because they are in one place all the time. If everything started to run smoothly still the mind starts to create a new reason for misery. Mind becomes addicted to it. It is a never ending cycle.

              So one has no choice but to remove oneself from the constant manipulation of the mind. Go more into Mantra, chant Mantras, repeat personal Mantra in Silence. When the mind begins to become uneasy utilize the tool of Mantra to both, transform the state of mind as well as have a positive effect on whatever circumstance is posing as an obstacle to your own liberation.
