What is a fire lab?

fire lab

A fire lab is a fire ceremony described in Indian Vedic scriptures. It is performed by a group of Vedic or fire lab specialists to invoke the presence of archetypal beings and their boons. The fire ritual is considered so powerful and effective that it is still used regularly throughout India and other parts of the world to help people quickly remove problems and receive boons. They are also known as yagnas or yajnas.

During a fire lab, specialists recite special sounds and focus on specific intentions on behalf of the requestor. They say the requestor’s name and birthstar, and then dedicate and offer into the fire specific herbs, flowers, fruits, incense and other objects prescribed for that particular fire lab.          Dr. Pillai says that to ensure the success of a fire lab, one must use the right specialists, doing the right sounds and intentions and offering all of the right materials at the right time.

At the end of the fire lab, the specialists gather some ash from the burnt offerings. These remains, called prasad, are highly charged with the energies from the ritual. They are sent to the fire lab requestor to place in his or her mind process technique area or to apply to the body to gain further benefit from the ritual.

Dr. Pillai says that if a fire lab is done properly, you should see some kind of result within 72 hours of performing the fire lab.

Why is a fire lab so beneficial?

Ancient Vedic literature carries many passages explaining the power and benefit of performing fire rituals.

Krishna, a famous figure in Hindu mythology and literature, explains the origin of fire rituals (sacrifices): “At the beginning of creation, Prajapati created both sacrifices and the human race. He told the humans, “Let the sacrifices be the bestower of all you need.””

“Through the performance of fire sacrifices, become abundantly prosperous.“(The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter III, Verse 10)

“The Gods, being pleased by the sacrifice, will please the humans. Prosperity will be created by the mutual co-operation of man and the Gods through sacrifice.” (The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter III, Verse 11)
