Homa Organic Farming
Objective of the Project
"To effectively demonstrate the transition of proven environmentally friendly agricultural techniques into large scale commercial farming enterprises operated by small farmers.”
Aim of the Project
The aim of Homa Organic Farming Project is to contribute to the professional development and propagation of Vedic Homa and Homa projects by offering supporting services to individuals, businesses or organisations who may wish to adopt Homa methods. "Homa Farming Project aims to assist in the ethical spread of Vedic Homa and Homa farming into commercial applications like mainstream farming and health”.
What Is Homa Organic Farming?
Homa Organic Farming is based upon the central principle of "atmospheric fumigation and enhancement" or more simply "the healing of the atmosphere".
This atmospheric effect is achieved through the central "engine" of Homa Farming - a fire process called Vedic Homa which is performed precisely at sunrise and sunset. Homa directly benefits the ecosystem and health in two main ways:
1. The Homa fire creates an influx of rejuvenating energy from the sun into the immediate area of the local ecosystem, allowing all living things to draw a higher level of energy and NUTRITION DIRECTLY FROM THE ATMOSPHERE.
2. The Homa ash from the fire is a SUPERCHARGED FERTILISER AND HEALING CATALYST which is spread or sprayed throughout the ecosystem or used as a direct medicine. In farming, the Agnihotra ash is applied to plants, soils, compost, water bodies and to animals as a direct feed supplement. Any ash that has been distributed in the ecosystem acts as an additional "receiver" of the energy brought in by the Homa fire.
All aspects of the Homa fire process are precisely prescribed – including ingredients (dried cow manure, cow ghee, geloy, jaggery, amla, rose petals, sandal dust, camphor, guggal, til, barley, kesar, and rice), copper reverse pyramid-shaped havan kund , Vedic mantras and precise sunrise/sunset timing for that particular geographic location.
CURRENT INTERNATIONAL USE OF HOMA
Vedic Homa, Homa Farming and Homa Medicine have been successfully implemented in many countries and modern cultures, far beyond the borders of Bharat. For instance, in SOUTH AMERICA, Homa Farming has been adopted on a policy basis by a number of regional governments in Peru and Venezuela since the 1990's as a method of successfully remediating vast areas of the countries' staple food crops that had been destroyed by viral plagues and fungus. This provides an indication of Homa Farming's capacity to significantly assist with wide-spread concerns about modern food security. Also, numerous mainstream doctors and hospitals in South America incorporate Homa Medicine for treatment of physical illness and in psychotherapy and detox programmes.
TEACHING LINEAGE OF VEDIC HOMA
Vedic Homa is taught as a scientific method of farming, medicine and environmental remediation. It is taught to all cultures and ethnicities and requires no particular cultural or religious belief.
Vedic Homa and Homa Farming are based on the scientific and astronomical principles of the ancient Vedic culture of Bharat.
The knowledge derives from "The Vedas" which are regarded as perhaps the oldest texts of humanity. The Vedas contain insights on many branches of science including astronomy, medicine, physics and all known and unknown sciences. The Sustainable HOFP will also promote protection of the environment, particularly surface water, ground water and soil conservation.
The Vedic Homa process has been resuscitated in its modern scientific form by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati.
The Sustainable HOFP will provide a technology-based means of promoting the efficient use of natural resources, provide an opportunity for environmentally sound economic self-sufficiency, and ensure the protection and expansion of small farmers’ base.
The Sustainable HOFP will be implemented in three phases:
1) Design and Pilot Project Initiation,
2) Pilot Project Expansion,
• Design and Pilot Project Initiation and Expansion
A Design Team who will have responsibility for formulating goals and timetables for project performance milestones will deliver the design phase of HOFP. The team draft plan will provide for effective operation, communication and accountability during the whole project. This plan will specify the operational components of the HOFP Pilot Project Initiation, Pilot Project Expansion and Commercialisation. The design phase will have three main components:
[a] Draft Plan
[b] Design Review and Validation
[c] Initiation of Research for Pilot Project Expansion
Once the design plan outline has been completed, the research team will begin assembling methodology, technical specifications, staffing descriptions, materials list and regulatory policy considerations necessary for the HOFP.
The results from the HOFP and Pilot Project Expansion will be used for expanding to the commercial stage. The basic goals of the commercialization stage are to promote Homa farming as a viable business and life style alternative and to provide open markets. A secondary result of achieving these goals will be providing an avenue for improving inner city nutrition. The Sustainable HOFP team will promote Homa farming as a way to reduce overall production costs and increase the incomes of small farmers in conjunction with emerging sustainable agriculture objectives. The foremost objectives of Sustainable HOFP research and development are economic sustainability, pollution prevention, farmer health, resource conservation, consumer food safety and augmentation of quality food production.
The Sustainable HOFP is a bold attempt to save the small farmers and promote improved economic, nutritional, environmental and agricultural practices. A growing awareness of environmental injustices and health sacrificing exploitation has spawned an embryonic environmental justice movement all over the country. The movement needs to solve the technical problems related to environmental degradation. The Sustainable HOFP could serve as a foundation for widespread economic, environmental and health problem solution.
