Akanda Jyoti - Our ever burning lamp is herewith offered to all the Rishis known and identified and those not known. Vedic wisdom has been passed down through many great sages who were free from the bindings of this world. Their minds were connected to the inifine ocean of wisdom within, their light will radiate for all eternity. With eternal gratitude we keep this lamp burning in their honor.

Ayurveda (Devanagari: आयुर्वेद ) or ayurvedic medicine is a form of alternative medicine in use primarily in the Indian subcontinent. The word "Ayurveda" is a tatpurusha compound of āyus "life" and veda "knowledge", and would roughly translate as the "Science of Life". Ayurveda deals with the measures of healthy living, along with therapeutic measures that relate to physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony. Ayurveda is also one among the few traditional systems of medicine involving surgery.
Bhu Mata
The ancient Vedic sages viewed the Earth[Bhu Matha - Mother Earth] as a divine goddess, a being who had feelings and consciousness, and who responded to our prayers and actions. The sages sang beautiful hymns of gratitude to Mother Earth, wished her peace in rhythmic peace prayers, and also performed elaborate fire ceremonies for her peace and happiness.
Eternal Truth
Jyotisha (jyotiṣa, in Hindi and English usage Jyotish) is the Hindu system of astrology, one of the six disciplines of Vedanta, and regarded as one of the oldest schools of ancient astrology to have had an independent origin, affecting all other schools in and around India. The Sanskrit word derives from jyótis (disjointed as "Ja"+"Ya"+"O"+"T"+"ish" to get the root meaning as "water or birth"+"in addition to" + "earth" and "stars" + "knowledgeable" equating as one who is knowledgeable, or enlightened with knowledge, of birth, fate, and relationship to water, earth and stars) or which means "light, brightness", but in the plural also "the heavenly bodies, planets and stars".

Around the world there are special places where spiritual energies are more concentrated. In this section we take you on outer journeys to these places through various authors so you may experience a little of their magic.

Rishi Krishi
Four systems of organic farming are prevalent in India: Biodynamic Krishi, Rishi Krishi, Panchgavya Krishi and Agnihotra Krishi. Biodynamic Krishi has a strict sowing and planting calendar. Rishi Krishi involves boomi sanskar and application of amrit pani.

Sthapaya Veda
Vaastu Shastra (aka Sthapatya Veda and Vastu) is the ancient Vedic science of design and architecture. It is a detailed science of how to place and construct buildings for harmonious life on earth.

The world has and continues to be blessed with spiritual saints who, through Divine inspiration, offer us deep and profound spiritual insights to uplift and inspire in us to live a life of Higher Consciousness.

We feature just a few of them here.

Vedic Culture

A look into the basics of Vedic culture and its philosophy.

Many people do not know quite what it is, and it is often described incorrectly by many who are not a part of it. However, it is not as mysterious or complex as it is often portrayed to be.

Vedic Sciences
Vedic science may refer to a number of disciplines, ancient and modern, Hindu, occultist or New Age, proto-scientific, found in or based on the Vedas.
Yagya is the science of purification of the atmosphere through the agency of fire given through Vedas, the ancienmost body of knowledge known to humankind.

Help Menu

Explore the various options here. You have a range of learning tools and feedback tools. You can Learn the Agnihotra Mantras, Learn how to do Agnihotra, send us suggestions, get Agnihotra supplies directly from India and find out about the team who made Agnihotra for Windows.

Special Note on Time

For Agnihotra for Windows to work correctly in terms of reminding you at the exact times of sunrise and sunset, it is important that your system clock is set with the correct time at the moment. If you have an Internet connection and are running Windows XP or Windows 2000 this feature is built in to Windows. Simply click on your system clock and enable the Windows time syncronization feature.

If your computer is keeping good time you only need to update your clock once in a while as most computers keep good time for many months at a time. If you have a good Internet connection you can do it every day to be sure. Actually Windows does it automatically when updated.

If you are running an older version of Windows, we highly reccomend Dimension 4 which is a Freeware time sync software.

If you are without an Internet connection please use your local radio or TV channel to sync your clock with an accurate source.

Agnihotra for Windows is free software, you are free to use and distribute it. It has been created by Vedic Society for a better world through environmental and individual healing through Yagya.

Get it from CNET! (Version 2.0.3 for Windows - 4.24 MB)

 This software is 100% Spyware, Adware etc. free. It is released as Freeware for all to use and enjoy.

If you find it has helped you and you wish to contribute to support it's ongoing development and other similar Vedic Society projects you are welcome to donate via Paypal.

Please let us know your feedbacks and suggestions.
