Its designated purpose is for holistic healing, purification of the inner and outer atmosphere, and world peace.
Emphasis will be on chanting and understanding the mantras involved, instruction for performing Homa as well as Agni Hotra fire ceremonies, explanation of the materials and utensils used, and guidance for meditation. Participants will be able to perform the fire ceremony as part of their personal practice.
