English book release coming soon

´Agnihotra – Origin, Practice and Applications`

The German book ´Agnihotra – Ursprung, Praxis und Anwendungen` by Horst and Birgitt Heigl is a comprehensive book about Agnihotra and is published in the 5th German edition. Again and again, there was a demand for an English edition to enable a worldwide distribution.


Agnihotra Book



Now the time has come: After a professional translation into English, ´Agnihotra – Origin, Practice and Applications’ will appear as a print version and e-book.

Planned release date July 2020

From the content:

  • The origin of Agnihotra and its revival
  • The amazing geometry of the Agnihotra pyramid
  • The practice
  • Further fire techniques (Yajnas)
  • The operating principle of Agnihotra
  • Many examples of applications (Homa Therapy) for plants, animals and humans

  • and much more

The authors have been practicing Agnihotra for decades and have made numerous visits directly to the source, Shree Gajanan Maharaj, who has revived the Vedas and Agnihotra. Shree once emphasized that the true meaning of Agnihotra would be given in Germany and blessed the author, Horst Heigl, with the 'flame of knowledge'.

Participate at home in the
24 hour Yajna for Shree's birthday
on May 16 and 17, 2020

Every year, on May 17th, we honor the birthday of Param Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj - reverentially called ‘Shree’.

Many know him as the Avatar in the Age of Pollution, who brought help in the form of purifying Yajna fires like Agnihotra. Throughout his life, he devoted himself to the well-being of mankind. In 1969, he gave a message, which was broadcast by an Indian radio channel:

It is our desire that the Kingdom of Heaven descends on earth.
Let there be peace and prosperity on the planet.
Be engrossed in the practice of Yajna, Daan, Tapa, Karma, Swadhyaya.
This is the Eternal Religion (Satya Dharma).

This statement touches us all the more as we know that an Avatar is always connected to the supreme Light.

Due to the restrictions, a personal meeting at the Homa-Hof is not possible this year. But we take the opportunity to honor this day together and conduct a 24-hour OM Tryambakam Yajna, in which you can participate with your own Yajna fire at home! This video shows the performance of OM Tryambakam Yajna.

We are planning to start the Yajna on May 16th at 8:30 p.m. CEST. This time corresponds to midnight in Shivapuri and Akkalkot. The Yajna will continue until 8:30 p.m. on May 17th.

We have published an online Yajna list for this purpose, which you are welcome to subscribe to - even several people per hour. It will be nice if you register with your first name and the nearest larger city, so that data protection is respected and everyone can see where Yajnas are taking place.

Many of us take a moment to start together at 8:30 p.m., to finish together, and to perform one hour of Yajna during this period.

Please send or post us some nice pictures of the fire and your Yajna location.

We are looking forward to this beautiful joint event!

Current situation

We have summarized various tips for a good resilience in our newsletter.

In our newsletter we recommend the performance of OM Tryambakam Yajna. This video shows the performance of this Yajna:

New on YouTube   Agnihotra Horst Heigl Films

Horst Heigl Films


It was always a matter of particular concern to Horst Heigl, the initiator of the Homa-Hof, to share his many experiences and his knowledge with others. Therefore, he started filming with a Super 8 camera in 1976. Even though the recordings are not always convincing in terms of film quality, the contents are so even more. They are contemporary time documents of particular value. From 2019, the films were revised, partially newly dubbed and released on a new YouTube-Kanal.

The following films feature Param Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj:

Gilded Agnihotra Pyramid 1984

This film shows Horst Heigl having Shree’s darshan in 1984, where Horst presented a gilded Agnihotra pyramid to Shree as a symbol of gratitude and reverence. Horst Heigl traveled to Shree 33 times and was able to experience high spiritual knowledge directly at the source. Horst recognized it as his life task to pass on this knowledge for the benefit of humans and the earth.

Somayaga - Healing Energy and Purification for the World - 1978

This film shows footage of the Somayaga in 1978 that was performed in the presence of Shree in Solapur, Maharashtra, India. A Somayaga is an extraordinary Yagna that lasts several days. It was the second Somayaga after about 2500 years.

How to participate

In 30 years of daily fire practice, work in the fields and joyful community, we have created a powerful place full of light and love that radiate far beyond the borders of Homa-Hof. We are about 50 members of the Verein für Homa-Therapie (Association for Homa Therapy) and it is our concern to contribute to the regeneration of our environment and to share the knowledge of the helpful Homa-fire with others.

If you like to visit us and participate, to help or do an internship, to become a member or to contribute to the spreading, we are very happy about it. We have listed various options below.

If you have any questions or you want to make an arrangement, please contact us by mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone. +49 (0)7552 938760.


There is a large range of suitable activities and we are looking forward to your assistance -- by the hour or even for several days. This can be done in field and tree care, in construction and renovation activities, cow dung drying, in the office, with professional translations into different languages, the practice of longer lasting Homa fires (yajnyas) and much more. Help is always a good opportunity to increase your Homa knowledge. Please contact us.

Regularly, we enjoy larger activities together, such as field maintenance or longer yajnyas at full moon and new moon. Please see our schedule.

Internship, volunteering

If you are interested in learning more about the Homa agriculture and you want to get a deeper insight in the Fivefold Path and our community, we recommend an internship at the Homa-Hof. You can spend the night for free in one of the caravans, where there is also a cooking facility. Reports from and about interns can be found in our magazine Agnihotra Aktuell-Issues # 4 and # 5 (German).

Currently the volunteer members cannot look after the Homa-Hof around the clock. For closer arrangements on your coming please contact us.


Would you like to be informed about news, research, etc.? Depending on the event, we send you a "newsletter" several times a year. If you are interested, you can sign up for it here.

Associate Member

Anyone who supports the Homa-Hof occasionally or regularly with help and / or financial support can become an associate member. As associate members, you will receive information about planned activities, Homa news, etc. via e-mail. We look forward to each new member because it shows us that the Homa family is growing. Here you will find an application for associate membership.

Active member

We cordially invite you to become part of our community. We members live in the near or far vicinity of the farm and provide our own livelihood. The activities at the farm take place selflessly in our spare time - as much as anyone wants, and where you want or where there is need at the moment. The Homa-Hof is interdenominational and universal, a wonderful place to practice charity, to help others and to help nature - to give meaning to life. An article on how we live the community can be found in our magazine Agnihotra Aktuell Nr. 7 und in dem Buch von Birgitt Heigl Der Schauspieler in Seinem Dienst.

Promotion of Agnihotra

Do you want to share your experiences of Agnihotra with others? We offer you an Agnihotra tutorial (pdf) and an info flyer. For distribution, you can also request both flyers in printed form.

Maybe you can arrange an event in your area? Will you have an opportunity to organize a lecture about Agnihotra or an Agnihotra workshop in your area? We appreciate your support.

If you want to pass on Agnihotra yourself, please be careful not to change anything by your own ideas or "inspirations". Agnihotra has scientifically proven effects - every change is a loss.


Do you speak and write a foreign language fluently? We look forward to help with translations - even with shorter texts, such as the instructions for performing Agnihotra. If you click on the different language flags, you will see that there are already some translations available.


The Homa-Hof is a place where you can learn Agnihotra in its original unchanged form. We invite you to see, feel and experience the wonderful effects.

For the increasing number of visitors we urgently need a large seminar room. Our present improvised solutions in tent and barn are only suitable in good weather. Therefore, we are planning to rebuild our small barn and to construct a seminar room, some bed rooms for free accommodation, and sanitary facilities. However, we still lack the financial basis for this.

As we want to pass on Agnihotra for free, also in the future, we depend on donations. On request we send a certificate from the Association for Homa Therapy e.V.

Help against wind turbines

In the immediate vicinity of the farm three large wind turbines were built, others are being planned. They affect our work very much and cause great harm to nature, to rare animals (such as the red kite) and above all to us humans - and that without any significant benefit. Wind turbines are completely inefficient. Almost 30,000 plants in Germany have so far not been able to replace a single nuclear or coal-fired power plant. Our nature is pointlessly destroyed, residents are irresponsibly damaged. For more information and suggestions on how you can help, please read "Aufruf wegen unserer Erfahrungen mit den Windkraftanlagen Hilpensberg"(German) with a link to the flyer of the citizens' initiative "Mensch Natur – Oberer Linzgau".


We sincerely thank you for your support and help.
