Agnihotra – saves


The world’s worst ever industrial accident took place in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India on the night of 2-3 December, 1984. Some time during the night deadly Methyl Isocynate (MIC) gas leaked from the Union Carbide factory in Bhopal causing great panic. Thousands of people died and many thousands more were seriously affected.

The city of Bhopal was gripped with fear and suffering. However, all those performing Agnihotra in Bhopal were safe. Agnihotra proved a very effective protection for all of them. There was not a single fatality and no Agnihotris fell sick.

The survivors of the tragedy mainly suffered from severe cough, ulcers in the throat and constant painful irritation in the eyes. As no treatment was known for the MIC affected, this being the first calamity of its kind in the world, only symptomatic treatment was given to the victims in the local government hospitals. Whatever medicines were given did not afford much relief to the victims. In such circumstances Agnihotra ash and Agnihotra atmosphere helped in providing inner peace to those who suffered the mental agony of losing their near and dear ones.

At the time of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy most of the Indian newspapers highlighted the wonderful curative effects of Agnihotra. A news report excerpt from

‘The Hindu’ – Sunday, April 7, 1985 published from Chennai is given hereunder:

On the night of December 2-3 1984 S.L. Kushwaha (45) a teacher woke up at 1.30 on hearing his wife Triveni (36) vomiting. Soon he and his children also began coughing, feeling chest pain, burning in the eyes and suffocation. Looking out of their home they saw people fleeing in panic. One of them told Kushwaha of the gas leak in the Union Carbide Factory about a mile away. They decided to join the crowd and run when Triveni suggested “Why not start doing Agnihotra?” They did, and within 20 minutes the symptoms of MIC gas poisoning went away.

M.L. Rathore (33), with his wife, four children, mother and brother lives near the Bhopal Railway station, where dozens of people died of MIC poisoning. Rathore who had started doing Agnihotra five years ago, began doing the Homa, and continued with the “Tryambakam Homa.”

These are but two examples of Agnihotra coming to the rescue of the gas stricken people of Bhopal. Efforts are on to find out how many of the Agnihotris were benefited by the homa in Bhopal.

The positive effects of Agnihotra benefited lots of gas affected people and among them the experience of the Prajapati family stands out as the most outstanding one. Shri O.N. Prajapati’s wife was severely affected and was in a very critical condition. Shri Prajapati himself suffered severe irritation and redness of the eyes. His two sons were also badly affected. In such circumstances he started performance of Agnihotra.

Favourable result was inevitable. He himself got cured in a week’s time. His wife, however, took months to get fully cured. One of his sons, who was 13 years old, was diagnosed to be suffering from TB (Tuberculosis). Shri Prajapati having himself experienced the astonishing curing power of Agnihotra did not opt for treatment of his son under any other prevalent pathy’s but preferred Agnihotra chikitsa (treatment). His son was completely cured due to the positive effects of Agnihotra atmosphere, Mahamrityunjay Yagnya and regular use of Agnihotra ash as medicine. The most astonishing thing is that Shri Prajapati’s youngest daughter, who was born one year after the gas tragedy, is the healthiest among his five children.

Realising the need of the hour, local Agnihotris promptly started welfare activities for the gas affected victims. Volunteer Agnihotris actively served in the MIC gas affected colonies. Morning and evening Agnihotra was performed amongst the affected people and small packets of Agnihotra ash were distributed as medicine. Also, everyday after Agnihotra, eye-drops were administered to the affected people. The result of the treatment with Agnihotra eye-drops was wonderful as it gave immense relief to the victims.

In February, 1985 Barry Rathner from US also came and worked for some time in the colonies of the affected people. Agnihotra was performed daily, morning and evening for the group of assembled suffering people for about 2 months. Thereafter they were inspired to perform Agnihotra themselves.

Some of the scientists who heard the story, conducted many studies on the same and said that most scientists will not accept that radioactivity can be reduced by performing Agnihotri, for them anything burning is just a chemical process, but what they forget is, if Agnihotri was just a chemical process then the nuclei of the would not be changed and therefore the radioactivity could not be affected at all.

Just 2 years after Bhopal gas tragedy, there was a major nuclear explosion in the Chernobyl, Russia which again killed thousands of people. After the incident, there was a meeting held between the Soviet Union and Germany where in the scientists had proposed a plan for producing Angihotri ash which was a direct cure for the radioactivity expose.

So it was proven that Agnihotri was a perfect cure for those affected with Radioactivity. It is we who need to understand the science and scientific facts behind the mechanism of Agnihotri before we call it blind belief.

The family which performed had no idea that it was an antidote for radiation, all they knew was it had some beneficial effects. And their experiment and brave decision turned out to be a life savior for hundreds of people.
