Dr. Hafkine (Poland) remarks on Ghee (Clarified Butter) used in Agnihotra

Ghee (ghṛta) is the essential offering to Agni (fire) in all the sacrifices.

  • As the Ghee is burnt in the fire its smoke and fragrance cover the entire environment and the medicinal values embedded in it go to all.

  • It purifies the environment. Experimental studies show that the incidence of physical ailments, sickness, and disease is reduced in the houses, where the Yajña (Agnihotra) is regularly performed because it creates a pure, nutritional, and medicinal atmosphere.

  • The observation of some distinguished scientists is noteworthy in this regard.

  • Dr. Hafkine has mentioned that ---

“mixing ghee and sugar and burning them creates smoke which kills the germs of certain diseases and secretion takes place from some glands related to the wind-pipe, which fill our heart and mind with pleasure.”
Sugars present in Haviṣhya have great power to purify the atmosphere. It kills the germs of T.B., measles, smallpox, and cow-pox
--- remarks Prof. Tilward.
