Imagine this. A nuclear device has just been detonated in your city. For those of us who are within the initial blast radius they would not know what happened as they would be obliterated before they had time to register that a nuclear device had been detonated. Scientists say that these people would actually be the lucky ones. People a few more kilometers away from the blast would suffer from burns or exposure to radioactive material which could have immediate to long lasting detrimental effects on them and their family. At this point a few things would be going through their mind.
Effects of nuclear explosion
How much protection is provided by Agnihotra to nullify effects of nuclear explosion?
The Blast: Much of the damage (approx 50%) inflicted by a nuclear explosion is the result of its shock wave. The blast wave pressure deposits energy in the material it passes through, including air. When the blast wave passes through solid material, the energy left behind causes damage.
Level of protection within the blast radius gained by a person who performs Agnihotra : 0%
What decides the effectiveness of the Agnihotra ritual during a nuclear holocaust?
It is important to keep in mind that the protection levels discussed are in a nuclear holocaust environment. Therefore, the benefit that the ritual of Agnihotra can provide, is severely restricted compared to a peace-time scenario.
Importance of spiritual practice: The only way to increase one’s spiritual level is by doing spiritual practice that adheres to the six basic principles of spiritual practice. By undertaking the right type of spiritual practice, it is possible for a person to make rapid growth in one lifetime.
