How To Do Havan At Home Without Pandit & The Havan Mantras

According to our Vedic Scriptures, Havan should be the most important rite of our daily activities. As brushing your teeth and taking a bath is the first thing we do in the morning, Havan should also be done regularly.

Homa/agnihotra/Havan means making offerings to the fire; these are oblations to the devas and other celestial beings. It is basically the power of Deva Yajna. In this way, we pay off our debt for the blessings received from the devas.

If you read the Bhagavad Gita (3:10–13), Lord Krishna says, ‘In ancient times, having created mankind together with this yajna, the Lord of Creation said: ‘By this yajna, you shall propagate. Let this yajna be the fulfiller of all your desires. You shall nourish the devas, the shining ones, by this yajna, and may the devas nourish you. Thus, nourishing one another, you shall reap the highest good. For, nourished by yajna, the devas shall bestow on you the enjoyments that you desire. He is a thief who enjoys what is given by the devas without returning anything to them.’

Don’t you think that we should start performing our daily rite of Havan from today itself? Here is how you can perform Havan at home without the help of a priest.

How To Perform Havan

  • Perform your daily prayer activities and then draw a square mandala on the floor with rice powder and write the symbol of Om and that of the deity in the middle.
  • On the right side establish a copper vessel filled with water and topped with mango leaves, and a coconut.
  • Offer the prayer to Lord Ganesha and then to the deity.
  • Use Turmeric powder to spread it over the mandala, and make food offerings around the pot to the deity.
  • Have some sand in Kund. And now arrange 3–4 pieces of wood above it. Pour some ghee in wood. Arrange some camphor in it.
  • Have water in ur right hand. And recite ‘OM AMRTIO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA’ and drink the water.
  • Again take water in right hand & recite ‘OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA’ & drink the water.
  • Again repeat same & recite ‘OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA’ & drink the water.
  • Wash your hand & burn the fire with a matchstick.
  • Offer ghee to it, 108 times while repeating the mantra of the deity.
  • This is followed by the recitation of Vedic mantras. [REFER BELOW FOR MANTRAS]
  • Keep offering a mixture(Ahuti) of certain samagris while reciting the Vedic Mantras. The Samagris would include Sesame seed(til), Oat(jaun), Panchmeva, Sandalwood(chandan), Jaggery(desi khand), hawan samgri(refer this article), Guggul, Camphor(kapur).
  • During the end of your recitations put a coconut filled with ghee into the fire. (Om poornam-adah poornam-idah poorna-aat poornamvashishyate. Om poorna-asya poornam-aadaaya poornam-evaa vashishyate. Om shaanti shaanti shaanti swaha)
  • The ceremony is concluded with arati, the waving of lights with reverence, and Shanti mantras.
  • Follow the Vedic rule of donating every day after the Havan. Make sure you donate something to the needy on a daily basis. Havan is said to be incomplete without the act of donating.
