The Rig Veda, which is the earliest written document of human spirituality, basically describes a Fire Technology. Fire defines human life because human beings are warm-blooded animals. We will die without fire, but that is to understand fire in a very, very limited way.

The neurons fire, and then you get intelligence. That’s also fire. That’s electricity. There is a gross fire with which we have barbeques, and cooking, and so forth. Then we have neuronal firing, which I just mentioned.

But there is also fire within the Planets, and that’s another fire: electricity, light, and heat. Light and heat can also be understood in a very, very profound, subtle, and metaphysical way. That understanding (is embodied) in the technology of Homa, or Fire Ritual.

The Fire Lab Ceremony is a Divine Laboratory

I prefer to call the Fire Ritual a Fire Lab. It’s a laboratory. What do you do in the laboratory? You want to contact the Fire God to come and bless you with health, wealth, and ever so many things that you require for human life.

Feed the Gods, and They Will Provide

In the Rig Veda, the Yogis contacted the Fire God through Fire Ritual by giving food offerings to various Gods. Fire is a messenger who takes all of these offerings to these various Gods.

What’s the benefit? Once the Gods are fed, then they come and give you whatever you want.

 “Agnim ile purohitam yajnasya devam  ritvijam  hotarum  ratna dhatamam.”

This is how the Rig Veda starts. Hotarum ratna dhatamam: “He brings you wealth. He brings you gold.”

Later on, in the Rig Veda, where do you get money from?

“Agnina rayim ashnavat poshameva devam divedive ashasam  viravattamam”

It is through Agni that you get money. Gold is the real money, not dollar, or pound, or rupees. How does Agni, the God, create gold? He converts mud, or carbon atoms, into gold atoms with intense heat.

Who knows the technology? The technology is known to Agni, the God of Fire. He can convert carbon atoms into gold, changing the atomic numbers. This is technology.

An Empowering Brain Changing Technology

In our Fire Lab Centers, we want to present this tradition of Fire Labs as a science, pure science. What happens to the person, the priest, as soon as he begins to chant the hymns invoking Gods and Goddesses? What happens to the priest’s brain? What happens to the brains of the listeners?

We can contrast, and we can see, how the brain waves change. What is happening here is that you are elevated, through visible changes in the brain, that put you in a frame of intelligence that enables you to act better, and then create more things, and be productive.

Homa is not just a religious activity that the Hindus are involved in. It is a technology. It is a Fire Technology. That’s why I call it Fire Lab. You can go and work with different forms of energy. You can do Fire Rituals for different Gods and Goddesses, for the Planets, or for whose help you need, and say: “Fix my life.”

If you want to remove obstacles, you do a Fire Ritual, or Fire Lab, for Ganesha. He is the one who is going to come and activate your Von Economo Neurons in the Anterior Cingulate. He is also the one who is associated with the Thalamus, and he will activate the Thalamus.

Fire Labs Create Divine Radiation

Our Fire Lab is where both the priest, and the clients who sponsor it, will both benefit. It is an exercise to empower both parties to create a learning environment. In that learning environment, you create an energy that goes beyond the place where it is done.

There is a scientist, a nuclear scientist, who has done a lot of work on the dissemination of the radiation of the energy that comes out of the (Fire Lab) pit. It goes for miles in certain cases. We are going to demonstrate this to the people. The nuclear scientist will come and show the kind of energy that is coming out of the Homa.

Divine Beings Can Bless You with Money Through Fire Labs

You also find this knowledge with Krishna. Krishna, in the Bhaghavad Gita, talks about the purpose of a Fire Lab when Arjuna asks Krishna, “How can I make money very quickly?”

He says, “Yes, you can do a Fire Lab, a Homa. Then you’ll be able to access these Divine Beings, and these Divine Beings will come and bless you with money.” This is the Bhagavad Gita, which is in line with the Rig Veda. This is in the Karma Yoga chapter, chapter 3.

A Laboratory for Experiencing Divinity

Astroved’s Fire Lab Center is very special. You don’t come here and then space out, or think about mundane things, or become restless, or just think about when it is going to end, and look at your watch all of the time. That’s not going to work.

We are going to create an environment, for both the priest and the client, so that both of them live in a conducive space, and both experience Divinity. That brings good results. That is how Astroved’s Fire Lab, or Homa Center, is different from other centers where people are not that conscious.
