A guide to Agnihotra

The fire of transformation


Agnihotra, a cleansing Vedic fire ceremony, is one of the most powerful practices you can do to heal your environment and support everyone in it. At Hale Pule, we practice agnihotra at sunrise and sunset every day to purify the land and ensure a bountiful harvest from our organic garden . In just three years, our Kaua'i farm, Durga Farms, was transformed from a barren agricultural wasteland to a lush and thriving homestead.Anyone can perform agnihotra and be part of the healing of ourselves and the planet.


We have available agnihotra kits that provide the container and tools. You will need rice, ghee ( learn to make your own ghee)), and dried cow dung to practice this ceremony at sunrise and sunset (we recommend the Agnihotra Buddy app or iAgnihotra to get the exact sunrise and sunset times). Chant the short mantras below, one in the morning and one in the evening, to join Hale Pule and thousands of others who are healing the planet and themselves through this powerful ceremony.

How to perform agnihotra:


Approximately 10 minutes before the exact time of sunrise or sunset, place some pieces of dry cow dung in the agnihotra pyramid, so that the air can pass through it.

  • Apply ghee to a piece of cow dung and light it with a match. Then use this piece of dung to ignite the rest of the dung inside the pyramid. It is helpful to support the pieces so that they rest against each other inside the pyramid, for example two pieces of dung resting against each other. You can add additional ghee right next to the flame to help it spread to the rest of the manure.

  • Once the fire is lit, place a small amount of rice in the palm of your left hand or a copper offering plate and add ghee. Separate the rice and ghee mixture into 2 mounds.

  • At the exact moment of sunrise or sunset, chant the mantra below, and just after the first "swaaha" offer a pile of rice and ghee to the fire, using your right hand. Then make the second offering with the second "swaaha" and finish chanting the mantra.

  • After you have finished the mantra, sit quietly or meditate with the fire until it is out. Leave the burned ashes in the pot until the next fire, at which time the ashes can be collected for medicinal use for people or plants.
