Agnihotra (Fire Puja) is held daily at 8:30 AM. The fire puja is an ancient ritual described in the Vedas and performed with Vedic mantras. Ghee and herbs (samagri) are offered in to the surrounding area. This is also a metaphor for our releasing negative emotions and outmoded ways of being for transformation.
