Agnihotra Ash Recharges Well Water During Drought

Chile is facing the worst drought in its history. Radio Cooperativa, one of the country’s main news stations, warned of the catastrophic situation experienced because of the serious water crisis and agricultural emergency.
It added that according to Greenpeace, “Chile is the country with the greatest water crisis in the entire Western Hemisphere and 76 percent of its territory is affected by drought.”

           In fact, it is called a “Mega Drought”, and according to Radio Bío Bío, the lack of rain has been particularly extreme in the central area of Chile and around Santiago, with a very low level of rainfall.

     Curacaví, where we live in the farm named ‘Satsang’, is precisely in the area of extreme drought. Several residents, even with deep wells of more than 30 meters, had to start buying water in cistern trucks because their wells dried up. During the summer, we see every day water trucks passing to our neighbors’ plots.

   In January we started to worry about our well, which is less than 15 meters deep, because it was giving less water. We had to buy several water tanks to be able to fill the pool, and we had to reduce to the minimum our water consumption.

    In these circumstances, Juan José Rodrigues began to go every day to the well to place Agnihotra Ash into it. About two weeks later -without rain- the well began to recover. One day, I saw Juan happy filling the pool with the hose … We did no longer need to buy water and I was able to wash more clothes again!

   During February we traveled out of the farm during 10 days. Our friends who were in charge of Satsang did not place Agnihotra Ash into the well. When we returned, the water level had gone down! Juan José announced me, we would probably have to buy water again, and I had to ask a friend from Santiago for a “help” to go and wash clothes at her house.
    However, a week later, by placing Agnihotra Ash in the well every day, the well was already recharged.

   I shared this experience in the different weekly Agnihotra workshops that we were giving during the summer. One of the attendees was Ester Rojas, also from Curacaví. She took home some Agnihotra Ash from one of the workshops, and also bought the Agnihotra Pyramid to start the Homa Fires practice by herself. About a month later, we held another workshop on her own plot. And surprisingly, she shared her own experience. She admits that she is “less constant” with her practice of Agnihotra but even so, she was amazed with the effects of Homa Therapy.

     “I started using the Agnihotra ash you gave me – she said enthusiastically, – and I used it in the well here". She walked on the meadow and pointed towards the well on the other side, near a swimming pool.

“We were running out of water, we only had 50 cm left, and the pump could not catch it, it didn’t give water. Every time I came here, I threw a little portion of Agnihotra ash into the well. No one noticed this. I did this because I said to myself… if it turns out, fine. And it started to work out. Look at the pool: it has water. The grass is green. The well started giving water again … I don’t know how. So now I want more ash.”
