Engineer Gilberto Navarro’s Story

Guayaquil, Ecuador
South America


Engineer Gilberto Navarro is Director of the Center of Organic Agriculture of the Government of the Province of Guayas, Ecuador.

“We decided to combine the technology of organic agriculture with the technology of Homa Farming when Maria de Belen Cajas, a University student, came for internship. She supplied the Agnihotra ash. She and her parents, the architects Alejandro and Estefania Cajas have been practising Agnihotra for many years.”

“It is very difficult to grow tomatoes in Ecuador in winter. There are really many problems like: phytophthora, fusarium wilt and plagues like the Black Leaf Mould. It is difficult to work with this solanacea in the rainy months.”

“However, we treated two tomato varieties, one that is small and juicy, and another variety for salad. We were really amazed at the results after two months of treatment with the Agnihotra ash solution! We saw how the tomato plants kept their green color and developed wonderfully. The tomatoes didn’t present any attacks of plagues like the phytophthora, which usually shows up at that time. They stayed free of viruses.”

“Let us remember that organic cultivation is more susceptible to plagues and diseases. But that doesn’t occur with Homa Technology, which also expands the time of productivity; so it seems that more life was given to the cultivation. These plants have not received any water in 10 days and you don’t see a single fruit that has problem of bacterial stains, phytophthora, spoilage or fungi. You can check each plant and each tomato. And you should taste these tomatoes. They are wonderful!”

Hernan Posas’ Story

Homa Farm: Fountain of Joy
Vinces, Ecuador
South America


“I am an agronomical engineer working for the Department of Agriculture, in the Ecuadorian government. I am also General Manager of this farm. I have monitored the progress on this Homa Farm since 2007. These are my most recent observations.”

“Homa Farming has been applied in the banana plantation, Fountain of Joy (officially still called “Sorrows”) since 2007. It has 2 Homa Resonance Points installed with the respective cabins for the practice of Agnihotra and Om Tryambakam Homa.”

“Some of the main effects are:

  • Plants with greater vitality (they have more energy).
  • They absorb more nutrients from the air and soil through their leaves and root system.
  • The immunity of the plantation has increased, allowing us to reduce the Black Sigatoka fumigation from 12/13 cycles to 6/7 cycles per year.
  • Applications of organic or chemical substances to control insects, such as banana moth, have been eliminated.
  • We have been able to maintain the plantation free of applications of nematocides.”

“In terms of production our farm became the number one in our region in the year 2008 with 3530 (three thousand five hundred thirty) boxes of bananas per hectare. And then in spite of the difficult rains in 2009, we achieved a production of 3349 (three thousand three hundred forty-nine) boxes per hectare.”

“In other areas, the benefits include:

  • Improvement of the interpersonal relationship among workers and a better work environment.
  • Crime has been eliminated on the plantation and in its surroundings.
  • The plantation has been kept free from damage normally caused by the flooding of the river Vinces.
  • The workers are more aware and take better care of the tools and work materials.
  • There is a positive effect on the neighbors who come into the healing Om Tryambakam hut seeking improvement in their health.”

Bernarda Guerrero’s Story

“I could see the effects of these Homa Healing Fires in my garden after only two to three weeks.”

“I also noticed a significant improvement in the strawberries, which produced very brilliant, vigorous and delicious fruits. Furthermore, I saw an increase in the production of blackberries, through the 9 months of simply practicing Agnihotra.”

This is a Gardenia, it was not growing and it was dry. Now with HOMA Therapy the leaves have a new green color and the plant is standing straight.

These are Chamomile, which did not flower for more than 5 years. Now you can see many flowers and the plant is tall and strong. There was not a single flower here before, it was just a green plant for five years. Now it is with flowers and buds.

This plant of red Pepas (tomato like fruits) only had leaves. Now you can see green and red fruits and flowers. This shows another important progress through Homa Therapy.

This is a Plumilla plant, also called Esparraguina. It was not growing well and the plant was dry, even though I watered it. Now it has more vitality, green leaves and height.

Here there are some Irises, which I also had for many years (more than 5) without achieving there flowering. After practicing these Homas, they have flowers all the time and buds that are waiting to open up.

I had completely forgotten about the violet Jasmine, which you can see beside the red Lantana. I just recently realized its existence, because its flowers appeared. It had never flowered before.
