Agnihotra homa at Belagavi airport to ‘purify’ air

Belagavi: A mass Agnihotra havan was conducted at Sambra airport in Belagavi during the sunset hours on Saturday to ‘purify’ and ‘energise’ surrounding areas in the domestic airport.

The event was held jointly by Belagavi airport and a private company, M/S Expert Valves India Private Limited run by Vinyak Lokur.

The airport director, Rajesh Kumar Maurya, said he agreed to hold the havan after he saw a video that gave scientific validation to the impact of Agnihotra homa. “This homa has been traditionally conducted to purify, heal and energise space,” he said.

On Saturday evening about 20 men and women, mostly educated entrepreneurs, arrived at the airport with copper containers, cow dung, unpolished rice grains and other materials to conduct the ritual.

They sat in straight lines on opposite sides and kickstarted the havan.

Maurya said the cow dung and two pinches of unpolished rice grains are put inside a copper container and light fire to the mix that billows smoke.

“Many see these rituals in different perspectives, but when it was proposed to me with a video, I viewed it with a scientific eye. This purifies air,” he claimed.

The mass homa was conducted at the entrance of the airport.

Maurya further said Vinayak Lokur is an educated man and he has been doing this homa in many places for the past ten years. Every religion has its own methods of healing the environment. For instance the Christians do through burning candles and Hindus do through havan and bangging gongs.
