More Burning Therapy

Homa Therapy is today's featured madness.
Thousands of people from around the world have experienced that practice of Agnihotra and Homa Therapy relieves tension from the mind, leads to increased energy and improved health.

It presumably also relieves logic and sense from the mind, and money from the wallet.

So, what does homa therapy involve?
Homa is a Sanskrit word used here synonymously with Yajnya. Yajnya is the technical term from the Vedic science of bioenergy denoting the process of removing the toxic conditions of the atmosphere through the agency of fire. You heal the atmosphere and the healed atmosphere heals you. This is the central idea in Homa Therapy. [...]The process involves preparing a small fire in a copper pyramid of fixed size and putting some grains of rice and ghee (clarified unsalted butter) into fire exactly at sunrise and sunset accompanied by the chant of two simple mantras.

So Homa Therapy presumably is clearing up all the greenhouse gases. How does it do this? By lighting fires! And I guess you can do it anytime, since sunrise and sunset is always occurring somewhere (except in the minds of the magical flat earth adherents of which homa therapy seems to be a subset). But EoR shouldn't laugh. Homa Therapy has a venerable history:
Homa Therapy is totally a revealed science. It is as old as creation. In the course of time this knowledge was lost but it is now being resuscitated.

'As old as creation'? Were subatomic particles practicing homa therapy during the Big Bang? And just how is it being 'resuscitated'? With oxygen? That would help the fires, I guess.

As usual, there's the scientific proof, though it seems to consist of unpublished reports (or published only in the trade journal). You can use the smoke, or rub the ash on you, for all sorts of miraculous results. It can also, apparently, control the weather:
In this month we had three heavy rains at Sutagatti. First occasion was when I was performing Om Tryambakam Homa. The other two rains came during evening Agnihotra.

and it cures alcoholism and meat addiction:
My workers, their children and neighbors are very much influenced by Homa Therapy. Two of my workers who were alcoholic and non-vegetarians have stopped consuming since last two months. One of them is doing regular Om Tryambakam Homa and Agnihotra during our absence.
