Homam    Shanthi Homam

Hinduism believes in worshipping a particular deity for a specific purpose It doesn’t simply stop with a mere invocation to the devatas. It does have an impact if the deities be pleased with the offerings through a ritual called Homam. There are different types of homams according to each specific purpose. The process starts with erecting a homa kundam, a temporary make-shift small pit in a square shape built with bricks. In this fire altar (homa kundam), the holy fire is stoked with ghee. The Vedic Brahmins chant manthras while consecrating food, clothes, grains and desired objects of the deity into the fire, which could reach Him directly is the belief of Hindus. It does stand as a remedy for the particular problem for which it is made. Here we list some of the homams and their purposes.
