perform agnihotra

- A few seconds before the exact time of Agnihotra as indicated on your timesheet, take the first serving of rice within the fingertips of your right hand.

- At the exact time, recite the Mantra and add the first portion of rice right after the first “Swaha”. Add the last portion after the second “Swaha”.

- After the mantras have been spoken and the rice offering has been given, it is best not to disturb the fire, because of the interplay of subtle energies. If possible, avoid moving the pyramid until the next time you prepare for Agnihotra.

- Relax in a state of meditation and clear your mind, at least until the fire extinguishes itself. Take a deep breath as the tension dissipates and the healing effects of the fire are at their peak.
