Imagine having been invited for dinner to a place filled with smoke, pungent odor and buzzing with unpleasant noises. Would you enter? On the contrary, it might just put you off. Same holds true for the devas.
Havans are a means to nourish the devas, a direct interaction with devlok and the forces that run this creation. Today havans have become synonymous with soot that makes the eyes burn, incense that chokes and sing-song mantras that are more a test of patience rather than invocation of the Divine. The result? Just look around...we have reached the zenith of negativity and chaos.
An Authentic Vedic Havan Experience
A havan is a medium to interact with gods and goddesses. The practice involves making oblations
to fire along with specific chants. The fire having the ability of transformation can transform the
physical into the subtle and the mantras have the ability to manifest the ability and power
of devas in the physical world and also have the power and ability to control nature and normal human physical
A havan performed under the sanidhya of a Guru, with purity of thought, ingredients and the
correct chants, has the effect of completely changing the environment - the weather changes, air
becomes fragrant, birds perch on the trees around, there is peace and stillness within and outside.
These are all indications of the invocations being heard and responded to by the devs.
Puranas are abound with descriptions of havans performed by rishis, munis, tapasvis and sadhaks.
Ram and Lakshman went with Vishvamitra to protect one such havan. Another famous havan was
conducted by Janmajeya to exterminate Takshak and the entire clan of nagas to avenge the
killing of his father Parikshit. At the completion of all such havans, devs and devis would
appear to bless the havan. These are not things of the past, even today, divine manifestations
are reported at the time of purna-ahuti in genuine havans.
Sadhaks who have been seriously practicing the various mantra siddhis, have had physical
manifestations of the various gods. When they did the Ganpati mantra siddhi and did its havan,
the complete form of Ganeshji was created in the kund. This is how manifestation happens when you
do mantra sadhna. Lord Ganesh, the master of ridhi and sidhi, resides at the Mooladhar chakra and
is the guardian of the doorway to higher loks. During a havan while doing mantra uccharan for Ganeshji,
the energy in the Sushumna nadi rises upwards.
At the beginning of a havan, a sankalp is made which indicates the purpose for which the havan is conducted. Then the
aahvan (invocation) of specific devs and devis is done requesting them to bless the havan. When conducted in a
proper manner, these devs and devis reveal their form in the havan-agni at the time of purna-ahuti.
If you want to know whether the havan was performed properly or not, just watch the havan-agni at the time of purna-ahuti. You will able to
see the form of dev/devi if the invocations were successful. But donít get attached to manifestations, focus should be on the havan.
Since the puranic times, asurs have been known to disrupt havans and create obstruction in the invocation of devic forces.
That is the nature of an asur. The nature of a human being is to aid the positive forces, the devs and devis, by protecting the
havans for the peace and prosperity of oneís home, surroundings and creation at large.
