Havan Ceremony| Vinyasa yoga in Rishikesh| India

Opening-ceremony

 

Havan is a Sanskrit word that refers any ceremony, wherein offerings are made into a fire. Havan, also known as homa or homan. Generally, the word Havan is used in northern India, while homa is used in southern India. A Havan is sometimes called a “sacrifice ceremonial” because the fire destroys the offering, but a Havan is more accurately a “votive ceremonial”. The fire is the agent, and the offerings include those that are material and symbolic such as grains, clarified butter, milk, incense, and seeds. It is a purification method by fire and mantras to a internal soul or its surrounding environment.

It is rooted in the Vedic religion, and was adopted in ancient times by Buddhism and Jainism. The practice spread from India to Central Asia, East Asia and Southeast Asia. Havan ceremonies is playing an important part of many Hindu religion, and variations of Homa continue to be practiced in current-day Buddhism, particularly in parts of Tibet and Japan. It is also found in modern Jainism.

HOW HAVAN PURIFIES THE ATMOSPHERE

When the havan is implemented the fire burns with air, environment , human soul their body gets purified and becomes lighter in nature. So this light air goes up and replaces the cold/ the impure air , Impurities and this process continues and the air keep getting purified till the ritual is being performed.

The main item in havan is five fruits like mango, apple, guava, Banana and orange.  Wood which when burnt releases “FORMIC ALDEHYDE” a gas which kills harmful bacteria’s thus purifies the atmosphere as per the research . This gas which is used to preserve the fruits, vegetables and species in the medical laboratories.

The jaggery burnt in the havan also releases the formic aldehyde gas. A scientist found that if we stay in a place where havan is being performed for Half an hour the germs of typhoid fever are killed.

The cow’s ghee is a very important item of havan has been referred as a medicine to the poison in VEDAS. Its fragrance purifies the physical atmosphere. Ghee, when burnt in fire, goes up in the atmosphere and the fat particles get laden on the dust particles in the atmosphere and come back to the earth in a form of rain thus cultivates the vegetation on the mother earth.

Sweets like honey and jaggery, nutrition like ghee and dry fruits, fragrant herbs like ela, dalchini, Lavang , rose petals, antibiotic herbs like guggal and gyal, and material like ghee and samigri, when burnt it purify the atmosphere.  Havan ceremonial is like giving back to the atmosphere, what we have taken from the atmosphere or our nature. The aromatic herbs when burnt remove the foul odor in the atmosphere by their fragrance. With this mantras also chanting .

At last end of the ceremony distribute sweets to all of the members and said Namaste to every one with happily.

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Knowledge Sheet 85

Contd. from knowledge sheet 84
“Tasminsati shwasaprashwasayorgativicchedaha pranayama’’ (II Sutra 49)
“In that state of being in asana or posture, breaking the movement of inspiratory or expiratory breath is regulation of breath.”
There, in that state of asana, obstructing the flow of breath that is natural. You are blocking the natural flow because your flow is not natural at all. We have made our breath so unnatural, is unnatural. So whatever is natural is now unnatural. We have to revert backward. How do you revert back? It’s not just by accepting what is. “However the breath is going, I accept it”. No. Gati vichchedaha – break its movement. Break the movement of the breath by consciously breathing long, subtly and with counts and having attention at different places.

The next sutra:

“Bahyabhyantarastambhavruttirdeshakalasankhyabhihi parid rash to dirgha suksh maha’’ (II Sutra 50)
“Internal and external breath and total restraint of breath is regulated by place, time and number and thus the breath becomes long and subtle.”
This one sutra has described all the pranayamas, just one sutra. Breath in, hold and breath out with different counts; while having attention on different parts of the body. In one sentence, in one sutra, all the pranayamas are summed up.

There is one more pranayama which happens automatically. When all the thoughts, ideas in the mind and the objects are cleared, there is a natural pranayama which starts. It throws out all the impurities from the mind. That is the fourth pranayama.

“Bahyabhyantaravishayakshepi chat rt haha’’ (II Sutra 51)
