A Place for Reiki Education Based on USUI System of Reiki
Reiki Vidya Welcomes You 


A few minutes before the actual time of sunrise and sunset you should start to prepare the Agnihotra fire as follows:

Place a flat piece of dried cow dung at the bottom of the copper pyramid. Arrange pieces of dried cow dung, which have been coated with Ghee in the pyramid in such a manner as will allow air to pass. Apply a little Ghee to a small piece of cow dung and light it. Insert this lighted piece of cow dung in the the middle of the pyramid. Soon all the dung in the pyramid will catch fire. You may use a hand fan to blow the air and help the flame. However, do not blow through the mouth to avoid bacteria from the mouth getting into the fire.

Do not use any mineral oil or similar material to start the fire. At sunrise and sunset the fire should be ablaze in the pyramid.

You take a few grains of rice in a dish or your left palm and apply a few drops of Ghee to them.
Exactly at sunrise utter the first Mantra and after the word SWAHA add a few grains of rice (as little as you can hold in the pinch of your fingers will suffice) to the fire.

Utter the second Mantra and after the word SWAHA add a few grains of rice to the fire.

This completes morning Agnihotra.

At sunset do the same by using evening Mantras. This completes evening Agnihotra.

If you miss the timing it is not Agnihotra and you will not get the healing effect on the atmosphere or in the ash.

After each Agnihotra try to spare as many minutes as you can for meditation. You can sit at least till the fire extinguishes itself. Agnihotra creates medicinal and healing atmosphere.

Just before the next Agnihotra collect the ash and keep it in a glass or earthen container. lt can be used for plants or making folk medicines.
