HOMAM

MEANING OF HOMAM

Homams are puja performed for a particular deity by invoking Agni – the God of Fire. Homam forms the essence of all the Karmas prescribed in the Vedams. The goal of Homam is to guide the man through the correct path.

It is said that when the Lord Brahma (the Creator among the Trinity) created man, he also created "Homam" for man's livelihood and his attainment of spiritual desires. The fundamental premise of Homam is derive from the Vedams, although according to "Pursha Sookhtam". Vedams and Homams are eternal truth having neither beginning nor end, and are "Apourusheyam" (divine, not the creation of humans). Karmam |(work or action) is an integral part of living.

According to ancient text on Homam, any offer to fire as a God, is actually an offer to Sun. The goal of all Homams is the prosperity of the people at large by energizing and protecting the environment.
How Homam Should Performed

Each Homam should perform strictly according to scriptures. These are conducted fully learned and experienced Vedic scholars. The ingredients required for these Homams are different for each Homam. After each Homam, the pundits are fed with Vedic prayers.
