Yoga and Agnihotra

Yoga and Agnihotra

 * Yoga – Yoga is popular for quite many years in many parts of the world. It is popularly taken as a combination of some body exercises. As such there is nothing wrong in doing these body exercises. But what needs to be explained is that only this is not Yoga and then , of course, it should be explained what it is. It is a difficult task indeed because the subject is quite intrinsically difficult and the second person is not quite ready to grasp its meaning properly.

* Agnihotra cleans the environments – People everywhere have much greater concern about the environment pollution. Most of the present thinking is concentrated on reducing the amount of pollutants from its sources ( power plants etc.) and its dispersal to human population. These efforts should of course continue. But it should be realised that wherever there is a human being there will be pollution of the surrounding environment due to his natural waste products and also due to the activities he may engage himself in. Therefore, there is a need of a technique to clean the environment once the pollutants have been discharged into it ( and that will always happen in a finite amount ). Agnihotra (अग्निहोत्र) should be presented as the answer. Agnihotra cause a mechanism which cleans the air and, through it, the water also.
