Although a flammable fire is the central element of every havan ritual, the procedure and items offered to the fire vary by what occasions the ceremony, or by the benefit expected from the ritual. Procedures invariably include the following:-

  • the kindling and ignition of the sacrificial fire.
  • the invocation of one or more divinities.
  • the making of offerings (whether real or visualized) to them with the fire as via media, amid the recitation of prescribed prayers and mantras.

The burning fire forms the focus of devotions; it is often maintained on specific types of dung, wood, dried coconut (copra) and/or other combustibles. The fire-altar (vedi or homa/havan Kunda) is generally made of brick or stone or a copper vessel and is almost always built specifically for the occasion, being dismantled immediately afterward.

This fire-altar is invariably built in a square shape. While very large vedis are occasionally built for major public havans.

1.Havan and Yagya are the sources of not only sending the prayers to God but it’s also practice of controlling the global warming which is the major issue of ongoing generations and world.

2.Scientifically when you use perfume and when your mother cooks food, then the taste of perfume and food reaches the entire family members one by one and after that to the nearby window of your neighbor. and your neighbor asked you somewhat special are you cooking today :).  

Same way the diffusion of Havan exhaust which is pure and healthy for human health as well as nature health reaches the god after crossing all spheres of earth day by day.

That’s why in ancient times we got rainfall at the time, there was no much temperature, and people are more healthy due to regular more havans and yagya.
