Effects on microbial count
Dr. A.G. Mondhar, Practicing Microbiologist from Mumbai has conducted experiments to study the effect of Agnihotra atmosphere on bacterial population. Two rooms of identical dimensions were selected and Basal reading of microbial colony count was done in both these rooms after exposure of agar plates for 10 minutes.
In one room Agnihotra was performed and in the Control room control fire was produced with same material, medias were exposed for 2 hours after Agnihotra. In his interesting experiment Dr. Mondkar has observed that Microbial count where Agnihotra was performed revealed 91.4% reduction in colony count and the control did not show appreciable change. He has concluded that it is not a mere fumigation effect but much more than that
Further, Dr. Mondhar studied Bioenergetics system of individual micro-organisms. He concludes that Agnihotra plays a pivotal role in controlling metabolic activity of microorganisms.
In yet another interesting experiment Dr. Mondkar observed therapeutic effect of Agnihotra Ash in Rabbits. He has successfully treated scabies in Rabbits with Agnihotra Ash application. Normally Benzyl Benzoate is used and takes 5-6 days to heal the scabies whereas it was observed that a single application of Agnihotra ash Ointment cured the scabies in 3 days only and that too without the anxiety of poisoning as may happen with Benzyl Benzoate.
Agnihotra effect on aerial micro flora was also studied by Dr. Mondkar. It was observed that bacterial colonies of Staphalbus, B Subtlis, Enterococci, E Coli, Staph Pyo, Pheumonae grown before Agnihotra showed a definite reduction in colony count in 30 to 60 minutes. There is a definite reduction in micro flora after performing Agnihotra.
Dr. B. R. Gupta, Associate Professor, Microbiology, CSA University of Agriculture, Kanpur has conducted experiments on effect of Agnihotra on plate count of Aerial bacterial flora. He has found that in human residence where no Agnihotra was performed the Bacterial colony count was 123 as against in the human residence where Agnihotra was done regularly the bacterial colony count was as low as a mere 25.
Agnihotra ash also controls the growth of pathogenic micro flora. WG Cdr. D. V. K. Rao, Classified Specialist, Pathology, Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences, Delhi has studied anti-bacterial and wound healing effect of Agnihotra Ash. Antibiotic Sensitivity test was done on various pathogenic bacteria. It was observed that the activity in all the cases was bacteriostatic
Wg. Cdr. Rao also studied the wound healing effect of Agnihotra Ash on two Albino rats. He observed that rate of wound contraction was better with Agnihotra ash applied wound and Histopathological examination of scar tissue showed near normal histology in case of lesion applied with Agnihotra Ash as compared to increased fibrous tissue in Control lesion.
Effects on Germination of Seeds
Dr. B. G. Bhujbal of Pune M.J.P. Agriculture University has conducted some experiments on Germination of Grape Seeds and Cuttings in Agnihotra atmosphere. His observation is that despite use of modern technology in the form of use of hormones, scarification, etc. for germination of grape vines, the germination was very low. It was only 20% and further it takes a very long time, as much as 300 days to sprout. With this lacuna in mind he selected seeds of popular varieties for the study. All the seeds and unrooted cuttings were kept in Agnihotra environment and were also treated with Agnihotra ash; untreated samples from the same lot were used as Control.
He was startled to observe that the first sprouting took place after only 21 days of sowing. Thus Agnihotra atmosphere induced a rapid germination in a short period of 21 days against control showing 6 months or more. Root cuttings showed 10% rootings in Agnihotra treated cuttings as against 80% rooting in control. The loss of harvest was nil and colour was optimal i.e. Golden Yellow with increase in yield to 24% in Agnihotra treated cuttings as compared to 30% loss of harvest and yellow green colour in control group. He was amazed to find that Agnihotra atmosphere helps in Raisin making from grapes. The drying of bunches in Agnihotra atmosphere was complete in 21 days and taste was good in 35 days.
Dr. Ramashraya Mishra, Associate Professor, Genetics, CSA University of Agriculture, Kanpur, has observed effect of Agnihotra Ash on Varuna variety of Rai seed. During this study Rai seeds were treated with cow-dung and cow urine and Agnihotra Ash for 24 hours before sowing and equal quantity was kept untreated as control Dr. Mishra observed that Agnihotra Ash treated seeds with dusting of ash gave a higher yield by 30%
Similar experiments in various other fields revealed definitely positive and encouraging effects of Agnihotra in Seed Preservation, increasing Crop Yield, Multiplying Earthworms (which act as natural nutrients for soil),release of Soluble Phosphates from Soil and such concerned things with Agriculture.
A paper by L. Matela, Antoninkowska, Poland states that every couple of hour’s radio activity in atmosphere and drinking water was measured by radiasthetics in Bialystok, Poland. Two weeks later these measurements were compared with official data of international Atomic Energy Agency and they concurred with each other to a great extent. The author of this report has further tested the effectiveness of Agnihotra under conditions of higher gamma doses output. The soil radio activity was reduced by sprinkling it with water solution of Agnihotra Ash.
As stated earlier there are many prominent researchers engaged in finding out more and more valuable information about Agnihotra . They will come out soon with amazing findings. However, the effort on their part should be considered as something like stumbling on a hidden treasure because the abundant richness of the treasure is a reality yet unknown to them. Agnihotra is the gift of the Supreme Being to mankind and, therefore, complete and all powerful. As already confessed by an Egyptian Scientist ‘there is some force that defies the laws of science at work in the ‘pyr’ – ‘amid’.
