Tapovan Update 2018

   It was a gift to be in Tapovan with the wholly dedicated and devoted Homa Therapy couple, Anne and Bruce. They were placed there by Master Shree Vasant for this big task at hand:
Anne Godfrey (photo above right) and Bruce Johnson
(photo above left)
are the caretakers, guardians and sustainers of the Homa farm Tapovan with its’ unique 24-hours  ongoing Tryambakam Homa.
They can count on the full support of Sanjay Patil, manager, Bablu, all-round genius, with his family, and the lovely and pure souls of the Tapovan boys (photo below – part of the crew),

Anne’s sewing ladies (photo right- a part of them),
and Aaron, Anne’s son, who lives partly there.

The Paranjpe family plays also a very important role in the management of Tapovan. Only team work can do a great job!
Since a few years, the Tapovan school with Shreekant Paranjpe as the director, is educating children in this unique environment of Mantras and Homas. And wonderful things are happening…

There is so much beauty in things done with love!
And Tapovan is full of it!
is the guiding spirit, full of ideas, full of Divine Motherly Love!

      There are so many different tasks on this farm, where the land is still plowed with bullocks and minimal agricultural machinery is used (photo left).

     There is also a cottage industry for organic products being established in support of this Homa farm with its 24-hour Fire. Some of the products are ground ginger, turmeric, moringa leaves and other herbal superfood products.
 The Homa Biosol Gloria, a wonderful fertilizer is also produced and available at Tapovan.
Every morning and evening, people meet in the large Tryambakam hut for Agnihotra practice (Photos below).

     The 24-hour Fire is going on since 17 years non-stop.
These Homa Fires are part of the breath which gives life to this place.
 This Ancient Land of Tapas, Land of Yogis and Rishis.
From here, healing energies go out for the benefit of the whole planet.

Celebrating the 100th Birth Anniversary of Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj of Akkalkot

     In Kharagpur, West Bengal, India, birthplace of Maha Shree (Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj), a Jyotiruktha Somayag was performed in May 2018 to celebrate Maha Shree’s 100th birth anniversary.

The Yajaman, in this case, Achal Apte, represents the element of fire during the Somayag. Only someone who performs Tretagni Agnihotra regularly can become a Yajaman. He carries this Tretagni fire to the place where Somayag is to be performed and from this (Tretagni fire) the Somayag is started.
