The concept of healing fire has seen its genesis from the ancient science of Ayurveda. In the modern world, people are gradually shifting towards organic food and Agnihotra is playing an essential part in organic farming. The ashes from Agnihotra are exceptionally beneficial for crops and plants and reverse the plant diseases.”
