Authentic Balinese Villas in Sidemen
Agni Hotra is an ancient fire ceremony originating from the sacred Vedic Hindu texts. Centuries past, the tradition of Agni Hotra in Bali was embraced and fused with animistic rituals; however, following a great fire, it fell out of practice nearly 350 years ago.
Agni refers to fire and Hotra means, healing. This healing fire ceremony is considered one of the highest Vedic rituals.
Now , especially here in our place under guidance of our beloved mother , we called her IBU ATI , she is a revival of the practice of Agni Hotra for its powerful healing effects . She was starting this ritual after her to India and also she got a spiritual message from the GOD (Universe ) to do this ritual in our Balinese Hindu’s way .
Specially we offer the offerings of flowers and grains into the fire while reciting Hindus’s mantras to invoke blessings of health and abundance
The ritual is for energizing and purifying the environment, healing both the participants and those living in the area.
