Updated: May 11, 2020

During Vedic times we didn’t use to have disinfectants to purify air, so our sages use to do Yagnas or hawan's at regular intervals which used all five elements of life i.e. air, water, wind, fire and ether or sky, these all being form of energy were supple with natural herbs and shrubs during yagnas or hawan which use to act as sixth element for overall health and harmony, With time we lost our touch and relevance of Yagnas or hawan and unable to prove the importance of why Yagnas are to be practiced, due to the decline and disappearance of right knowledge, Vedic rituals evolved on the basis of yagna having primarily the purpose to create harmony, syncing environment, also providing harmony within the human body itself, creating environment of purity and immunity,
