Homam/Homa is a Hindu ritual where in we offer twigs/cowdung bars/ghee along with Homam specific ingredients to fire god Agni who along with Swaha goddess will prepare Havissu which is the favorite food of all Devathas.
The offerings differ from Homa to Homa.For instance we offer kozhakattai/Kudumulu for Ganapathi Homa and
Adhursam/Arisalu/Nippatlu for Swayamwara parvathi homam.
It has been scientifically proved that when homa is performed smoke emitted from this purifies the air and that
is the why our ancestors used to do angihotra which is the basic homa twice a day and they didnot have
any respiratory issues like Asthma/Wheezing.
