dead tree revived

I am a farmer and practice HOMA Therapy since 1998 when I met Prof. Abel Hernandez. We had a wonderful experience on my farm where a Homa Resonance Point was installed. There was a completely dry tangerine tree that I used to shake in order to collect dry branches for firewood. But Prof. Abel said ‘Lucas, do Agnihotra under the tree, because it might revive.’

I simply smiled, but I did Agnihotra under the tree. I did not think that this tree, which only served for fuel, could have a reaction. But the big surprise came after 15 days – the tree began to show signs that something was happening. Continue reading “Lucas Maya’s Story”

Dora Betancour’s Story

Armenia, Quindio
Colombia, South America

“10 years ago I had a farm which was infested with coffee berry borer, an insect that attacks the coffee seed. I bought the farm hoping to live there and grow food in a self-sustaining manner, but I had very little hope.”

“So before building a house, I had a Homa Resonance Point installed with the Agnihotra and the Tryambakam huts and the resonance columns. Every day, I and the employees did Agnihotra and Tryambakam, sometimes up to 6 hours and 24 hours on a full moon and new moon.”

“The coffee began to change the foliage, the color and became shinier. The stems that had been sick began to have healthy sprouts. And the fruits of the coffee were no more infected with the berry borer. And although the coffee grew on a small piece of land, we had abundance.”

“People began to ask what was happening here, because even the farm next door started to improve and recover from the berry borer.”

“A committee from the National Federation of Coffee Growers (Federacion Nacional de Cafeteros) came to see the farm and did a quality test of our coffee and asked me for how much I would sell it, because it was of very high quality. They bought my coffee about 6 times.”

“I also had avocado, banana, cabbage, carrots, lettuce, beets, and about 103 varieties of aromatic herbs with a place to dry them and it was beautiful. They never had any fungus. Everything grew with impressive ease. The wildlife was beautiful. The trees were visited by some birds, usually not seen in this region. We also saw animals like the sloth, hanging at the top of the tree. He visited us for 3 months and then suddenly disappeared and later we found him further down in the bamboo field. Those are things that do not happen usually on the farms and people in the region said that something special was going on here.”

“Purposely I did not use any synthetic agrochemicals. All irrigations were done with Agnihotra and Tryambakam ash. I put the ashes in large water tanks with a Yantram and the water was irrigated with sprinklers.”

“Later, after I sold the farm, I moved to a house that had a dry avocado tree in the courtyard. The first thing I did was lop all the dry thatch. It had no leaves, just branches, straw dry branches. Then I began to bathe the tree with Agnihotra ash water and took off lots of the parasitic moss which was eating up the tree. But this was done with the intention of planting a vine called “poet’s eye,” to make this corner of the house flourish. Then suddenly new avocado leaves started sprouting and today we have avocados from this tree. Although it is a very old tree it gives us avocados. I did not think it would recover.”

fruit trees
medicinal herbs

“I would like to share an experience we had in the village of Tenjo, close to the capital, Bogota. There, we have a lot of different crops on our small farm. It is in our garden where we use all the techniques of Homa Therapy in the preparation of the land, in the irrigation, spraying Agnihotra ash water against bugs, etc., in short, all we can do with Homa Therapy.”

“And the truth is that in this time of drought and water shortage there has been an incredible response from the Homa garden as well as from the herbs and fruit trees … they continue to resist like warriors of Light, giving delicious fruits and showing that Homa Therapy works! We give all the Agnihotra ash which remains to the plants. Even though, we do Agnihotra only three times a week (nobody lives yet on the farm), these Homa fires are so generous!”

“Our Homa garden on the Caribbean Sea”

“When we bought this house on the beach, there were cocoa plum bushes planted on the borders of the property. We began to recycle all fallen leaves and then we created a reafforestation system. We started planting trees and ornamental plants.”

“We planted cassava, mangos, guava, papaya, plums, beans, sapodilla, lemons, avocados, grapes and many aromatic herbs such as mint, oregano and plenty of basil around the house and all this on the salty sand of the beach. We spray everything with the Agnihotra ash water solution and of course, we practice daily sunrise and sunset Agnihotra.”

“We live practically on the ocean-front but all these plants really took off after we started doing the Homa fires. Now, we are surrounded by mango trees, which give fruits all year round! Usually the mango is a seasonal fruit, but on our land it gives fruit at all times.”

“Now can you imagine what happened? We were not here for 3 months (nobody did Agnihotra) and during that time the mango trees did not produce! We are truly amazed because we had mango all year round. Nobody has that around here.”

“Also, we had a papaya tree growing in the sand with a cluster of six papayas! Once we got a cassava plant about a meter long and 30 cm thick. It was very heavy. Nobody has what we have here. Practically speaking we have transformed our small farm of 2,700 square meters.”

“We also have 4 varieties of plantains and bananas which are the manzano banana (small banana), a thick variety banana with 4 edges, a big banana called “Harton” (eaten fried or green) and the regular banana variety which is eaten in fruit salads.”

“Our beans reach a length up to half a meter. We have a mango variety called ‘Tommy’ which gives big fruits and once we harvested a mango which weighed about 2 kilos and it was delicious. That tree gives baskets after baskets of mango.”

“Like the coconuts, which are full of water and we constantly drink coconut water. We have various kinds of coconut trees which are always full of fruits.”

“We recycle the water and we recycle all waste, except plastic, glass and metal. For example all organic waste material serves as fertilizer for the soil. When we arrived here, there was no grass growing. Now, as you can see, it is like a stadium and we did not bring this from outside. We are able to donate much of our delicious garden products to the nursing home.”

“We also take Agnihotra ash every day and we feel very good, very harmonized. Here, at our little farm, we invite the people for Agnihotra, because we want to share the good things that are happening to us. This is fantastic and a very real experience.”

Homa Farm: Huerta Ecologica
Mesa de los Santos, Santander
Colombia, South America

tomato
beans

“We have 18 years of organic tradition and we now have 2 years of HOMA experience. Since we began to use the HOMA farming technique, we have noticed an improvement in the quality and production of the fruits.”

Tomatoes:
“We used hybrid tomatoes called “Long Life”, these seeds are imported mainly from Holland and they are very expensive. Now, with HOMA, we can save the seeds from our garden and they are of better quality than that of
“Long Life”. Tomatoes that used to last 5 days after harvest, now, they last 45 days!”

“Also, the production level is permanently increasing. The tomato plant is growing better and the tomatoes are bigger and heavier. It is so incredible! A basket of tomatoes that usually weighed between 28 and 30 kilos, with our Homa tomatoes weighs 35 kilos. It is a tomato that has less water, is more resistant to damage and handling, has better flavor and lasts longer. HOMA changed the physical characteristics of the tomato. They have 25% more weight.”

“The hybrids have a good production, but they produce very few seeds. Non-hybrid varieties can transfe their genetic properties to the next generation but the production and quality is low. What HOMA does is to improve the seeds of both hybrid and non-hybrid varieties. So it increases the production and quality.”

Beans:
“Initially, we sowed a hybrid seed, imported from France, called “Habichuela”. It was a very good quality bean. We collected its seeds and, as always happens with hybrid seeds, it generates a number of other varieties: yellow beans, green beans, tasty beans, bad beens, etc. We selected one that seemed to be good in taste and color. The seeds of our selected variety were planted with HOMA Farming Technology and we were able to establish a new variety. It no longer generates other varieties.”

“It is a variety which is a little bigger and has some characteristics which are different from the original bean, but it is wonderful. It is such an incredible bean that, when the moms come to get products from our farm, they tell us that their children don’t like beans. I tell them to try ours and then they continue buying them, because they say that it is a marvelous bean and that it fascinates their children. Our beans can be eaten raw or for one minute cooked in water.”

El-Kabid Peter Ben George’s Story

strawberries
blackberries
cape gooseberries

“I was in an area of Santander which is called Garcia Rubia. This was a cold area with bad soil. We decided to make a Homa experiment when we met Julian Acosta. He introduced us to Homa Therapy. We got some land and started a HOMA Organic farming project. A Resonance point was established and we had 27 different products. We produced enough veggies and fruits for the whole town.”

Mr El-Kabid Peter Ben George and his wife Carmen Lucia Burgos

“We didn’t realize how powerful Homa Therapy was until now. We had a project for cold climate fruits, like the blackberries. The standard production of this fruit is 8 to 9 tons per hectare; we produced 14 tons. Average production of cape gooseberry is 5 tons a year per hectare, according to the ‘Universidad Nacional de Colombia.’ We produced over 9 tons. The strawberry production in Colombia is 0.75 pounds per plant per year. We got 1.5 pounds.”

“It was incredible! We received an award in Paris as Number One for Ecological Production. The following year, we again received the First Prize for Ecological Production. This was thanks to a partner who showed our fruit products in Europe.”

“Originally we had 25 liters of water per second. When we left the land, we were collecting 175 liters per second from our natural source. It became a river! We also planted 64 thousand trees, which also contributed to the water production. It was amazing.”

“My wife and I realize that it is all due to Homa Farming Technology which transformed the soil into this spectacular land!”

The strawberry production in Colombia is 0.75 pounds per plant per year. We got 1.5 pounds.

Average production of Uchuva is 5 tons a year per hectare. We produced over 9 tons.

The standard production of blackberry is 8 to 9 tons per hectare. We produced 14 tons.
