September 21 Homa

Today the monks began their new phase with a homa. One of Hinduism's most ancient ritual practices, the homa creates an important connection between the three worlds. The Bhuloka, or Earth plane, the Devaloka , or astral plane, and the Sivaloka, the subtle heaven worlds. Through the sanctified fire we can feel the blessings of the Devas and Mahadevas and burn prayers which are received by beings on the the inner planes. Today Paramacharya Sivanathaswami burned the prayers in the fire as Yoginathaswami made offerings of ghee, flowers and rice. Afterwards, Sivanathaswami gave a talk, continuing his discussion of mantras with insights into bija mantras and their unique functions.
