I was introduced to the fire about 13 years ago by brother James”Blake” Moore in Jackson, Mississippi. I was overwhelmed by the peaceful and healing atmosphere that I experienced in the room that Blake set aside for the sacred fire. I was deeply moved as Blake uttered the mantras often repeated after Agnihotra which included Sapta Shloki. I also observe him perform Gayatri mantra, Vyrahruti Yajnya, and Om Tryambakam. I am very grateful to brother Blake for showing me the Fivefold Path of Agnihotra, Daan, Tapa, Karma and Swadhyaya.
